Hey there, how's everything?:D I've been wondering if I can get in shape and toned just by running and jogging. I want to have nice legs, abs and butt but I hate doing pilates kind of stuff and squats etc. I just love running, its the only thing that count for fitness for me :p

Same same. Running is an excellent total body workout and really tones up the lower body (especially if you do HIIT or run on inclines) so you can rely on it exclusively for getting in shape. But it’s always good to mix it up with some strength training or other activities to avoid plateauing and boredom. Try doing a mini strength routine before running, you’re more likely to get through it if you have the run to look forward to after.

I have had a 4 weeks long break from exercise. I wonder how long do you think it will take for me to get back on track? I've been eating well all the time of course, even lost some weight. Normally I would exercise 6 night a week, I'm just worried it will take me so much longer to get back to my originally fit- self... Never had such a long break so I just wonder if you know anything about bouncing back into shape??

4 weeks is not too long, you should be back on track in no time. Some people go on breaks for years and they still manage to get back in shape after a few months with effort, at this point you still have an enormous advantage.

Would I begin to loose weight if I used meal replacements or tablets which burnt fat? I don't have time for excersize because I have to revise for gcse's!

There is no evidence that meal replacements, diet pills and other “fat burning” products work and some can have negative effects. If you want to lose weight and keep it off, it’s the simple answer of eating healthy and exercising regularly. And if you have time to go on Tumblr and ask this question, you have time to exercise. A 10 minute walk in between working is a good place to start, and decreases stress.

I have to cut out wheat from my diet for my health and so in general my diet has had to shift into a much healthier one. (No french fries, pizza, bread, etc) I'm not bothering with gluten-free substitutes. I already go to the gym 3-4x a week if not more if I work less, so do you think I can expect to see weight loss? If so, how long will the change take to affect it?

Possibly, you’re not necessarily going to lose weight from eliminating wheat, more likely because you’re cutting out processed foods that contain wheat. How much and how quickly you lose depends on your routine and metabolism, in general it takes a few weeks or at least 1-2 months to start seeing physical changes.

Do you think breakfast is absolutely necessary? Sometimes I just don't have time in the morning to eat a healthy breakfast

Breakfast is pretty important, it gives you energy to get through the morning and prevents you from crashing and overeating later. If you’re as bad at waking up on time for a sit down breakfast as I am, prep something quick and/or portable the night before like:

You’ll thank yourself later in the day
