Eating too little not losing weight

Common Questions and Answers about Eating too little not losing weight


Avatar n tn Track every single thing you eat in a food journal and then review it the end of the week. That should give you a better idea whether or not you're eating too much or even too little.
Avatar n tn It is not too hard to follow, but I am not losing much at all. I got back down to my pre pregnancy weight after my last child then I got my Tubes Tied and have gained 40 pounds since. Is this normal!? I REALLY want to be back to my ideal weight I am just at my wits end.
Avatar f tn I've been dieting for a month now and im worried i may be eating too little. I'm already thing but want to shed a couple of pounds anyway. My height is 5'9 so im pretty tall. I'm at a healthy weight but my moms got me pressured to lose another few pounds I was 130 pounds at the begininng of the month and now im 125 pounds. So basically im losing around 1.25 pounds per week. Anyway i've been eating around 1000 calories everyday and walking for an hour everyday as well. Is this too little?
Avatar n tn As far as exercise, get some weights and do some weight training, or do some push-ups. Cardio is not necessary for losing weight. In fact, I believe that running too much can be bad for you. That's a whole other topic of conversation. Stick to high-intensity workouts for shorter periods & you'll be healthier. Also, remember that it's not what you do at the gym that makes you look/feel great, it's what you do at home in the kitchen that counts.
Avatar f tn I'd try not to worry too much. I'm 17 weeks now and I've lost about a stone through sickness and nausea, and everyone I've spoken to says it's perfectly normal - it goes without saying that you won't be eating like you used to if you're suffering really badly with it. Eat little and often, and hopefully it'll pass soon.
Avatar f tn I'm a little confused. Is anyone else losing weight? I'm 11weeks 5days. My weight before pregnancy was 180. 6weeks prego my weight was 168, 8weeks was 161, today i'm at 155. I thought in the beginning it was from morning sickness and being actually sick, but for 3 weeks i haven't had a lot of morning sickness since i started drinking sprite and i haven't been sick. I thought for sure by mid 11 weeks i would have gained at least a pound or two. Am I the only one losing?
1149046 tn?1264365186 The most healthy way to lose weight is by implementing a sensible eating plan, with moderate exercise. You can do a search for "abdominal exercises" or something similar -- there are tons of videos that you can watch online or you can go to your local library to "borrow" them. *MY* favorite is Biggest Loser - Yoga for Weight Loss -- yes, it's yoga -- will help firm/tone your entire body AND if you let it, it will even relax you....
Avatar f tn Have you tried taking Vitamin B6? My midwife recommended this but I didn't have morning sickness nearly as bad as you. Tried to stay hydrated, you may be lightheaded because you're not getting enough fluids.
219522 tn?1251764229 I'm not! I was losing weight before I was dx as hypo which I thought was a bit strange. Since I have been on meds since Sept, my weight has stabilized an I have maybe gained a pound or two. (It might be because I am eating lots of protein many meals trying to get my hair to grow!!) Have you had you levels checked lately? Are you exercising? You actually might not be eating enough if you are exercising.
Avatar f tn Yes Motivation is a very important part of weight loss, if you dont believe you can lose weight then you wont, because you wont stick at anything, Losing weight is not about going to the gym or spending money, I do go to a gym because for me i know that if i pay for it then i have to do it, i would maybe do it for a few weeks at home but then i would get bored doing it on my own so thats why i use the gym, I know people who prefer to do exercise at home or outside, That is just peoples prefera
542730 tn?1234677438 I just wanted to share a little success story with you. About 2 months ago My wife was feeling a little unattractive because she gained a little extra wieght. I was all for it. It didn't sound like a bad idea at all. However, I wanted her to remain healthy because sometimes these wieght loss products can be questionable. Anyway, I went to my doctor who specializes in herbs. He told me a gentle, effective colon cleanse could reduce her weight any where from 10 to 25 pounds.
173820 tn?1224939758 I basically threw money away by joining LA weight loss, which is now Pure weight loss and it's not helping any because the women are fake and RUDE. I can follow the diet, but they are not supportive unless your buying their ****, which is god awful. I know I need to lose weight and I really want to, BUT I just cant find the energy and time to do what's required to lose right and exercise. My son is 4 months and as some of you know has a tracheostomy tube and a feeding tube.
Avatar f tn Lately I've been feeling less desire to eat, and more accomplishment out of not eating. (It usually gets like this before I start to lose weight.) Would weighing 90 pounds at my height be as unhealthy as it's said to be? I don't feel as if there is, but could there a problem with me?
Avatar f tn I hope this makes sense and helps a bit - I'm not a dietician by any means but have lost a lot of weight in the past using this method of varying my intake each week and it seems to have worked well for me. I'm still going though! ;-) Good luck - don't starve yourself, it sounds like you're doing a great job just don't lose faith!
Avatar f tn actualy i've mentioned i do have fat on my waist.. the abdomen area to be precise and my waist is like 36 inches.. and the problem is i know running and walking are effective in raising the metabolism but due to my schedule i cant find time for it ! but really thanks for the advice... will try to exercise atleast !
Avatar f tn I get my hcg and supplies from a place called pharmacy rx. Most of you are losing weight only by the 500 calories you are eating and not the hcg itself. Please do your research!
Avatar m tn Seems you are either eating too much or too little. Not helpful. I think its obvious that my body is not converting fat into energy and I'd love to know if anybody has any info about what might be causing this and what I might do about it. My doctor says "You must be eating more than you think. You know soda has sugar in it." Like I'm an idiot. Like I've ever drunk soda or any of that other junk.
Avatar f tn Now wait -- eating small meals is for people who eat too much, not people who eat too little. If you don't eat much you shouldn't be gaining weight, you should be losing unless what you eat is incredibly high in bad fat and bad calories.
Avatar n tn You are fine just the way you are you are not over weight. All you have to do is watch what you are eating to not get over weight. You ought to be glad and thanking god that you are not fatt just be happy that you are that size you are. People like me need to be stressed out on weight loss I am 215lbs 5ft 7 with a family history of high blood pressure diabetes and no telling what else.
Avatar n tn I know I am always saying I saw research on just about everything but I was veraciously trying to find answers back when I thought I was dying! Weight gain and difficulty losing weight was one I found a lot of info about. I'm not obese or really that fat but do have about 10 to 20 extra lbs and I almost quit eating for a while, trying to increase my energy levels, any way I could and was amazed that I could not lose! WEbsites I've been to, say this is a major problem with hypothyroid people.
Avatar n tn well ur losing fat for sure, but weight im not sure if it even matters, dont worry about your weight. YOUR losing fat not muscle.
Avatar m tn Just as baffling is why, despite what must be a significant caloric deficit each day (and especially compared to the past couple of years where I didn't workout or watch my calories at all) I can not only NOT seem to lose any weight, but I'm GAINING weight?!?!?!?!? (Not gaining weight overall, but gaining back any little losses.) I'm really trying to stay strong, here. And I'm not giving up. But I really, really, really want to give up, after this morning.
Avatar f tn Late night snacking and poor sleep too can cause weight gain. Polycystic ovary too causes weight gain, hence has to be ruled out by an ultrasound of abdomen. Certain medications like antidepressants cause weight gain. If all these causes are ruled out then you can start a diet and exercise program to lose weight. If you want to lose weight, then you must do it the scientific way for long term benefits, healthy glow, and a good physique and body.
Avatar n tn I now weigh dead at 240 lbs, still a little overweight but still losing weight. I am not complaining, but I keep asking myself am I losing it too fast? Like if there is something else contributing to my weight lost such as some cancer of some kind. Or if this just from where I have been alot more active and eating healthy?
