Exercise induced weight gain

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise induced weight gain


Avatar n tn I still have about 4.5 months to go and I'm already really close to the reccommended weight gain- Yiikes!
Avatar n tn I have noticed in the last 6 months that she has put on excess weight (10-15 pounds)eventhough she maintains the same amount of exercise prior to her being diagnosed. Is there any correlation with the weight gain and the medication. I can't believe that the extra weight gain can be good for her diagnosis. Is there anything that I can do for her besides increase her activity. I am concerned because she was slightly overweight for her age to begin with.
Avatar n tn I have been on tamoxifen following surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for stage II breast cancer. Even though I exercise regularly and watch what I eat, I have been gaining weight and wonder if it is due to the tamoxifen or having been thrust into chemical menopause from the treatments.
Avatar m tn Depakote works as a mood stabilizer, and there are a few other options you can explore in this class of drugs. Weight gain induced by anti-psychotics and mood stabilizers is best managed by exercise, diet control and behavioral modifications. You may have to weigh the risks (weight gain) against the benefits. There are a few medicines that are known to be helpful in anti-psychotic associated weight gain. Some of these are Orlistat, Sibutramine and Diethylpropion.
Avatar m tn I'm 52 years old and have been dealing with periods of rapid weight gain (anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks) for nearly 4 years. My worst are 16 pounds in 3.5 days and 12 pounds in 2 days. Stress probably is a factor, although cortisol tests have been coming back normal. I'm spending thousands of dollars and so much time with doctors and tests; finding a doctor with an open mind and didn't believe that I was "cheating on the side" took a lot of time and money.

Avatar n tn That way you are increasing the dosage when you need it during the PMS week and then go back to your regular dose a week later when your period starts. The only advice I can give regarding weight gain is to try to do some sort of exercise or activity (fast walking) something that gets your heart pumping and gets you a little sweaty. Try your hardest to keep away from fastfood and fried food. That is at least what I try to do.
Avatar n tn I had a hyster in 05. Same situation as all of you. I have gained 23lbs after working at Weight Watchers and losing 52lbs in 03. I have started researching weight gain and hysterectomies just yesterday. I am a Christian, believer in JC.
Avatar n tn What a whammy! A miscarriage, and then you GAIN weight? Doesn't it seen like it should go the other way? Well I am very reassured to read these postings. My miscarriage happened January 11, and since then I've picked up a good 7 lbs (only gained 2 in pregnancy). I've always had a "healthy appetite" but have been able to get away with it by running 12+ miles a week. If I gained a pound, I ran a little extra and off it came. Not the case any more!
401095 tn?1351395370 Metabolism, Weight Gain and Recovery from Meth Recovering from active meth addiction presents some special challenges, one of those being unwanted weight gain. Before understanding some specific weight problems related to meth use, we need to have a good understanding of how our metabolism works in general. How does the human metabolism work? Metabolism is a big word that means the rate at which the body uses energy. We eat, taking in calories, which are broken down and used for energy.
Avatar n tn This is making me very depressed, my doctor just upped my Effexor to 150mg and told me to exercise. He said Effexor does promote weight gain. I am sad, but the Effexor does help and make me feel better, just fat.
7172456 tn?1403096546 I asked my doctor and he isn't concerned at all. I eat healthy and exercise daily. Some women just put on more weight than others (I also have hypothyroidism). From my experience with others, 17 lbs is a good healthy weight to have put on, not too much or too little.
Avatar n tn I'm all torn up inside about this serious weight gain I have experienced. I look at the pile of pants i have that i can't wear anymore and cry. I'm currently being treated for migraines, and am on a ton of meds (Topomax, Inderal, Alesse, Flexerile, Tramadol,) When the doctor put me on Inderal I gained aprox. 35 pounds in 2 weeks.
Avatar n tn ) Of course, I was too easily distracted by then to actually do anything about this side effect (like call my MD). Then I began to gain weight. No change in diet or exercise levels. Just 35-45 pounds over the course the year I was on it. Eventually, I forced myself to concentrate long enough to decide to wean myself off the stuff. Since I was probably never a true candidate for the drug to begin with, no problems associated with not taking the drug. I've been off it now for well over a year.
315094 tn?1201393650 How successful is this hormone replacement therapy? Can I expect to gain weight, even on the meds? I am so sick of worrying about my health, I QUIT! I'll let you guys know how that goes for me.
Avatar m tn Very few cases are purely allergic asthma, asthma caused by respiratory infections, or even in cases of EIB (exercise induced asthma). Some cases, even most.. are psychologically based. Stress can cause hair loss, weight loss/gain and a list of other effects. Asthma induced by anxiety is very common. It is important to rule out a medical condition. You may end up on on oral steroids, when you would benefit more from psychological help.
Avatar m tn But it is not due to my self image, I have always been skinny, I know im not fat and I never have felt fat, if anything..I wish I could gain weight. When I eat too much, I get very tired. If I eat breakfast in the morning, I feel so sluggish the entire day, so I always skip breakfast. By the time I actually eat something, I have to be very careful HOW much I eat.
Avatar n tn Hi The weight gain after hysterectomy, particularly around the waist, is result of hormonal changes induced in your body. If ovaries are also removed during hysterectomy (i.e. a complete hysterectomy), it leads to an artificial menopause. The ovaries normally produce the female hormones estrogen, progesterone, and androstenedione. Upon their removal, levels of these hormones drop dramatically. An imbalance between the levels of androgens (male hormone) and estrogen comes into play.
Avatar f tn 14+4 I've been really up and down with my weight. I gain 5lbs then I lose 4lbs then I gain and lose the same 2 lbs. This is my second pregnancy with my son my body did the same thing and by the end I think I gained under 12lbs.
Avatar n tn I have tried several diets, and successfully lose weight, but always gain it back because I stay hunger 24/7. I have tried just about every diet imaginable. I have had the most success with the low carb protein diet. I know this isn't a great diet for my kidneys, but nothing else works as good. I have high blood pressure and exercies induced asthma. I get started at the gym and my breathing starts to kill me and finally I quit.
Avatar n tn Wheat and barley contain the most gluten of all the gluten containing grains. It isn't just the alcohol that makes beer drinkers gain weight. Grains with gluten are also fattening. Gluten in moderation is fine, if you're not allergic to it. I have a friend who is so allergic to gluten that the tiniest amount, like the tablespoon or so of flour used to thicken a gravy, will make her sick.
231441 tn?1333896366 I was told in no uncertain terms that I should try not to gain weight (overweight to start with, hypothyroid and gd - on insulin). Makes me want to not see them (though I know I must). Maybe I should show them my weight monitoring charts! (in my pregnancy tracker)! This is so depressing! I want to diet, but know one shouldn't... still I'll have to try eating less, much less to get this weight gain under control! :( Hope I'm not the only one growing exponentially.
Avatar f tn this is NOT a large weight for a newborn). I don't think your weight gain has anything to do with baby. But I think smoking, taking drugs (prescrip or street), drinking, gestational diabetes, etc. would have more effect on the weight of your baby than what you're eating. I've heard of tiny, tiny women having 10 lb babies and I've heard of obese women having little 6-lbers. That being said, so long as you are eating healthfully and drinking plenty of water you are doing what you can.
Avatar m tn Hi Guys i am a fairly fit 27 year old male. I am a smoker and a very light drinker. I go to the gym at least 3 times per week and that includes weight training and cardio work on the exercise bikes and treadmills. I have exercise induced asthma and use a pump called "Venteze" before my workout to stop any attacks that may occur. My question is the following: When i am exercising, my heart rate will only go up to roughly 145 bpm max.
Avatar f tn mode (learned this way back in nursing school), causing your metabolism to slow down and can actually make you gain weight. You might try eating a small number of nuts before eating your meal, as this can help to cut down on your appetite, I've heard. I've tried it and I think it may work to some extent oftentimes with the crushed macadamias I eat.
Avatar f tn I feel disgusting, especially as i already weighed 238 pounds (17 stone) before getting pregnant. I have 11 days left before being induced so im hoping not to gain much more. Im determined to exercise and start a weight loss group once the baby is here. Just wondering if anybody else is in the same boat?
586373 tn?1312035391 I'm delighted to see that the new trackers are up. Here are some thoughts. EXERCISE TRACKER For starters, I've just opened this up and it's lost yesterday's data. It's great that it includes "moderate" and "vigorous" exercise (for the stationary bike); could you add "gentle"?
Avatar f tn I've heard that psych meds can be pretty unforgiving regarding weight gain. Given time I expect the other weight would come off. I think that's how it works. As long as you're burning off more than you're consuming you should eventually lose it. You could try checking out Dr Beckerman's blogs, etc for more information and tips on losing weight. I would think that the excess weight is a reversible thing. Fat around the body's organs can be extremely dangerous.
Avatar n tn I have no family history of illness and, other than the seemingly exercise-induced illnesses as of late, I think I'm fairly healthy. If I had to speculate, I would say this is related to the release of toxins that have built up in my body over the past 5 years that are now being released into by bloodstream from exercising. For now, I'll think I'm going to try focusing on nutrition and probiotics for a month before trying to exercise again.
