451075 tn?1210262248 hence the LOW carb, not NO carb. I'm with Gaui in sticking to veggies (add corn to the high carb list) and fiber-rich fruits.
Avatar f tn Once you are done with 34lbs or 40 shots, whichever comes first, then for three weeks you switch to a no carb no starch no sugar diet, basically you'll be doing Atkins for the next 3 weeks. Remember though, once the shots stop, you need to do the 500 cal for 3 more days to let it get out of your system, then eat the Atkins way. If you gain more than 2 pounds you have a "steak"day, which is water all day and then a huge steak that night.
560272 tn?1311353893 The truth is whether we do Atkins, Low Carb, Low Fat, High Protein, Count Calories, Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Jennie Craig....we need to realize they all work for people. So, whatever way of eating a person chooses, they still need to remember to make Healthier Choices in their food choices and need to Exercise. I believe this forum is a valuable tool and I'm glad to be a part of it! Have a great night!
Avatar n tn As long as you don't have one of the medical problems listed above, trying a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet such as the Atkins Diet may help reduce your flatulence. If this doesn't work, a product called the Flatulence Deodorizer may help you reduce any related odor problems. or taking 1 or 2 cups of live cultures yogurt or pure acidophilus culture or acidophilus milk daily.
Avatar n tn Anyone though that has tried it, and honestly stuck to it, has lost weight. Lots of weight. I have lived a quasi Atkins diet now for the last 5 years and have been up and down depending on how serious I live the diet. Whenever I am serious about it, I lose weight. I don't care what any "Dr" or "study" says, the freakin diet works. I'm goin' on this and will keep you posted.
Avatar n tn i am not paid to say this, i have been looking hcg up for a while since my sister in Oklahoma started it, she has had a weight problem all her life, tried it all, diet pills, fade diets, atkins, some worked some did not, the ones that did left her feeling miserable, but two months ago, she went to a weight managment doctor, he gave her a shot, after a long medical history and exam, the shot, 10.00 yes 10.00 and the doc visit 60.
Avatar n tn My MD has me on a low-carb diet and I am walking 1-2 miles daily and mild exercies which I think is a great help..I have lost 18 pounds in about 6 weeks... I now have more energy .....I have suffered form PCOS for 16 years and thought there was no hope, but now that I know I am unsulin resistant and there is a help with metformin and I can help by controling my diet and exercise I feel revived !!....but you must have a mind set to do it, and stick with it no matter how discouraged you get ....
Avatar n tn and try to avoid Sugar. Low Carb and Hi Protein - it almost sounds like the South Beach Diet or the Atkins Diet.
Avatar n tn She told me that sugar was posion for me, so I decided to try cutting it out. I have been basically doing the atkins diet, no refined sugar of any kind, no white flour, low carb, and I noticed a difference in the first two days! I am three weeks into it, and I have maybe five to ten in a whole day! My resting heart rate was always between 90-100, and it is now 70-80 at all times. I was also having tachycardia attacks (on low dose of propranolol) and I still have it, but not as bad.

Avatar n tn I worked very hard to lose 120 pounds, only to have to have a hysterectomy and I have gained 60 with in a year! I am devastated, taking over the counter diet pills and prescribed diet pills from my MD. I am very depressed about this and was wondering, any women out there have this problem? I am not on hormones either.
Avatar n tn I did Weight Watchers, E-diets, a cardiovascular diet from my doctor, low-calorie plans, low carb. Nothing has worked. To make things worse, I have other medical problems: high blood pressure (weight gain does not help this), high cholesterol, osteoarthritis in my knees and feet, hypothyroid (medication did not stop the weight gain), and now fibromyalgia. I feel terrible, achy and tired and in pain every day. I could care less about sex.
Avatar n tn I am now 42 and going through another fast weight game right now - 2 lbs a day. Only a low carb diet will keep the weight off - I can cut calories and work out 'til the cows come home, but I still put on weight. My blood sugar is 99. My thyroid is normal, but I have low blood pressure. A new odd development - cysts all over my legs - as of last year. Two doctors say they are lypomas, but they are hard and red. My doctor did blood tests and everything is good to normal. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn Belching/pain finally ended using 1) 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar in water and 2) following a high protein, very low carb (strictly low starch vegetables), no sugar, no dairy (no Fodmaps diet) basically a combination of Paleo/Atkins. It amazed me how quickly all the symptoms went away.
Avatar n tn I've gained significant weight while on these drugs (despite an intense exercise program and careful diet). My nutritionist and MD told me that the drugs likely altered my metabolism, but no one can tell me how long it will take to correct that. Most frustrating, I've noticed that since I stopped taking both, my weight gain has accelerated. Any ideas as to how long I need to endure this or ideas for correcting my metabolism? Thanks.
Avatar n tn But by the time I get home from work my tongue is almost completely orange again. I've also had a sore throat since I noticed it. My diet has not changed nor has any medication that I take. Not sure if I need to go to the doctor or a dentist.
530191 tn?1214166411 Wow, after all thes years, I can't believe I finally found other people with this long lasting problem. I've had them since Thanksgiving 1999. They started out as giant hives, and I was on prednisone for almost three months. A dermatologist replaced the Pred. with a combination of Zantac and Zyrtec. They haven't been "giant" since then.
Avatar f tn I have taken many prescriptions and over the counter meds and home remedies. Now my rectum hurts. Need advice on getting rid of these horrible things. I'm fed up!!
Avatar n tn If you exercise 20-30 mins daily than you should have 1200 calories per day and 1000 if you don’t exercise. You are suppose to have a low carb high protein diet w/ 2 fruits and as many vegetables a day. It’s nice because you go in 3 times a week to get the shot and get weighed so you can see your progress. They also monitor you to make sure you don’t have any adverse affects to the medicine. I am telling this works! I have already lost 5 lbs in one week!
Avatar n tn I just saw another post that mentioned proper diet, and I suppose not coincidentally, a month and a half ago I started the Atkins Diet, and it has been in that time frame that this dent has appeared. I bet I'm not getting in enough nourishment. Does anyone else know if this is a side effect of high protien, exremely low carb diets?
Avatar n tn Ive been up since 4 with only 4 hours of sleep and an exam at 9. ARGG.. Anyway, I also read something about the raw food diet helping people with eczema. I know eczema is different than what most of us have but it does have to do with the skin so it may help with what we got too. I dunno though, anyone know anything about that?
363682 tn?1299492962 This list is growing.. I just recently have started with the same symptoms of having the neck pain up the left side up to the top after a few hours of drinking a minimum of 1 glass of any type of alcohol. It lasts throughout out the night until late morning. I'm 42yrs old, had my share of drinking when I was younger but drink a couple drinks, on an average of 1-2 x's a month , if that. No lower back pain, no hypertension, no TMJ.
Avatar n tn If you have sugar you can sometimes get an odor to your urine and if you have sugar/dibetes it can be a big factor as to why you get this in the first place so if your not sure get it checked. If your uric acid levels are high you need to monitor your diet and if this is a cause of inflamation in your body then I see no reason why it couldn't be a contributing factor in all this but it is the first time I've heard of it. Just trying to use common sense.
Avatar n tn There has been a lot of good advice on this column-- I felt like your list of symptoms was like a check list for what I have -- here was what I found out -- try turning off any wireless routers, cell phones, cordless phones (especially DECT) -- this was the first step in my recovery. don't have any electrical appliances near your bed when you sleep. It sounds like you have electromagnetic sensitivity -- from too much radiation. It is more known about in Europe less in the States.
Avatar n tn I had been quite discouraged and thought it has been an endless list of things, allergies, asthma, diabetes, thyroid, cardiovascular, diet, depression, overall lack of energy needing detoxed, just having the "A-G-E"disease and the small kids combo... and have more or less gone to specialists regarding all of these. In the interim, I will start the probiotics. I think I will go the route with the Danactive Immunity drinkable yogurts that are "probiotics" .
Avatar n tn eventually they got better until last week i went out with some friends and had quite a few Vodka and diet coke!! The next day my eyes seem to get worse and worse as the day went on taking all week to get any better. I have noticed a pattern - it seems to flare up every time after a night out drinking alcohol - i went out for a meal last night and had a few drinks and this mornin it is back again!!
Avatar f tn I have experienced no hair loss.I have lost weight however I am on a high protein / low carb diet and I exercise daily so I wouldn't say topamax is the reason in my case, willpower is. My only complaint is I feel stoned all the time, brain fog. It has never gone away. I have a lack for words in conversation and am living in a spaced out fog.
Avatar n tn It's just all a vicious spin of turning to food to comfort the depression, being depressed from gaining weight, wasting money on programs like Weight Watchers, Atkins, private nutrionists and not getting any results, going home and starting over comforting with food. It's not even an overeating thing either, I can stop and limit myself. Maybe it's my age and metabolism changing (I'm 39) but then again I see women in their 40's and 50's at the gym in great shape.
