I took a diet pill so i don't really feel hungry. I also take one a day carb smart. What am i doing wrong. I am currently 172 and need to lose 20lbs.
Avatar n tn Getting a hard sell from a friend and fellow diabetic who's on a weight loss program called "Isagenix". Says it's great for dibetics. Just wondering if any one on the forum has any first hand knowledge/experience with this program.
Avatar f tn Just wanted to update you guys on how my exercise program is going. I have been meeting with a personal trainer now for two months, twice a week for about 45 minutes. I have had NO major setbacks so far!!! She happens to also be a nurse, so I felt less anxious about working with her. She was unfamiliar with Dysautonomia, POTS, but researched it so that she would understand my condition(s). Needless to say, she was nervous about working with me and saw me (as I did) as fragile.
Avatar f tn Listen to what your body is telling you and ask others what works for them. We can get ideas from each other. Good luck with finding a program that works!
Avatar f tn My problem is figuring out how many calories to intake. I do exercise anywhere from 5 to 7 days a week, usually for about 35 to 40 minutes a day, and also will do some weights, but other than that I am basically sedentary. I have tried several different websites on figuring out calorie intake and they all give me extreme differences. Some say 1200, some say 1600, and some have said as high as 2200. Now I know there is no way I could consume 2200 calories a day unless I was extremely active.

1990784 tn?1331875378 When people talk about aftercare it always entails AA or NA but what about the SMART Recovery program? I have been reading alot about it lately and have even attended an online meeting. I like the way they approach addiction therapy. Anyone can google it and see why their program is about. The downside is that it is not as available in as many places as aa and na. And I also would like to hear what people have to say about attending an online meeting when it's not possible to go to a meeting?
Avatar f tn He admitted himself into an inpatient detox program yesterday. They use suboxone therapy. I am so scared. Besides being completely angry, disappointed, etc, etc. about the relapse. I read all these horrible things about suboxone and how much harder they are to come off of. After he completes the detox program, he starts intensive outpatient therapy, three days/week for three hours. I thought having him gone for detox this time would make things easier on myself and the kids.
Avatar n tn I can't seem to start on an exercise program because of these palpitations. I quit playing ice hockey, which I loved, and have not been active at all. I am pretty overweight, I could probably lose 30-40lbs. My hands feel tied. Oh yeah, I can't stop eating either ;-). I have a stressful marriage and I seem to have become an emotional eater. Mostly my question is how to overcome the fear of the PVCs. Any ideas would be most welcome. Regards.

572651 tn?1531002957 He stressed that it is the secondary fatigue that responds best to exercise and therapy. 2. Exercise in volume, just doing a few minutes a day or a few times a week is not enough. MS patients need to exercise every day. We need to set a goal of a total amount of exercise but it doesn’t have to be done in one grouping. Break apart the exercise into manageable bits and take frequent breaks when you feel fatigue coming on and then resume the exercise when you feel better.
Avatar n tn In the first two minutes following exercise my heart rate drops to under 120. After five minutes it is between 100 and 110. Then it stays around 100 for about an hour (or sometimes 2), before gradually returning to normal. Funny enough, the same thing happens to my sister. When my girlfriend jogs with me, her heart rate returns to normal within 15 mins and she is not particularly fit. I first realised this 3 years ago when I had a check up with my doctor.
649848 tn?1534637300 I am working 10 hour days, beginning at 5:00 am and ending at 3:30 pm. In order to do this, I have to get up at (or shortly after) 3:00 am. This allows me just enough time to brush my teeth, shower, get my hair dried and acceptable; get dressed and get a quick breakfast that usually consists of a yogurt, a hard boiled egg or an egg/canadian bacon sandwich and of course, my coffee. I leave home shortly after 4:00 am in order to insure that I arrive at work on time.
Avatar f tn I would like to begin an exercise program and I get confused/frustrated cuz I am not sure what I can do at this point. how do I get cardio if I cannot run or take a aerobics class (no jumping)?? I LOVE to lift weights but which moves CAN i do? only lower body? can I do curles? how do I target my tri's? Any ideas where i can find someone to help me put together a training program? Typical "trainers" at the gym don't seem to be educated enough about MY condition...
Avatar n tn I don't like to exercise at all. I have to take time for me when I do exercise. Have you tried just walking. Walk 20-30 minutes at a fast pace 3-5 days per week. Stop eating 4 hrs prior to bed time. Drink plenty of water 4-6 8oz class per day. Serve youself on a small plate. When you finish don't go for seconds. It is a small change that worked for me. It allowed me to eat what I like. I find that when we are told you can not have is when we want it the most.
Avatar n tn When stress, like exercise, increases the heart rate, it makes you a higher risk for stroke and heart attack in this profession. Since the stress levels suffered by EMTs in emergency situations, your heart rate may prevent you from getting and keeping a job. Alot of time exercises that are aerobic bring down the heart rate. Biking, swimming, low impact aerobics and power walking are good exercises that will give you a good workout without raising your heart rate too high.
Avatar m tn I read the tag about stomach pains after tennis and my syptoms sound very similar. I am in good shape and exercise regulairly, and it only happens on random days spread by weeks of no problems, and it only happens when I push myself to my limits. I have asthma, but I can outrun any person in my school so I do not think that is a problem. When it happens I usually can't sit still and it feels as if someone is driving a knife into my stomach.
Avatar n tn 1) I get PVCs regularly but not always post exercise (e.g after a 1 hour run)- the GP tells me to continue but I read on this site that post exercise pvcs can be dangerous. In a otherwise structurally normal heart with normal angio - should I be concerned and look for yet further cardio tests? My cardiologist said "whatever the pain is, it's not your heart". So is this overkill?
723660 tn?1247167111 A typical day for me involves two slim-fast meals and one turkey wrap with an apple for lunch. cardiovascular exercise is painful for me--I usually go into a coughing fit that can last for hours after stopping, even from only a few minutes of stressing myself. Nevertheless, I try to run up and down stairs for at least 5 minutes before breakfast every day, and spend between 10-15 minutes a day doing sit-ups, divided between morning and evening.
Avatar n tn I don't feel stressed and why does it come on when I exercise or do heavy work? Isn't exercise supposed to relieve stress? I don't know if I am making it worse by plowing through or if that is the best thing to do.
3986919 tn?1352129583 He tells my MS doc that he is testing me for Stiff Man's Disease and if that comes back negative he wants to put me on an intensive exercise program!! WHAT A JERK! ....ONE week before I saw this UofM Neuro, My MS doc examined me and said...and I quote, "You have MS". He just wanted to send me to the UofM neuro to make sure I didn't have a rare neuro disease! SO..... ONE week I had an exam that convinced an MS specialist I had MS then the next week my exam was NORMAL????
4217197 tn?1351201022 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. It's best to join a nutrition expert and a physical trainer and follow their advice. Incorporating yoga into this regimen takes stress out of this exercise to lose weight.
Avatar f tn The first thing to do is figure out how many calories you need at minimum, with no exertion. Plan out your diet so that your intake stays around that amount. Next, you should figure out when you're feeling most energetic. If you're like me, that's around 8:00 pm. Then it's just a matter of what you want to spend your energy on - cardio or weight lifting. They say now that you can spend the same amount of time weight lifting as with cardio, and you'll get the same health benefits.
1274896 tn?1271222019 Hot baths, bananas, drinking plenty of fluids, exercise and time is what cures this. I know it hurts and is miserable but it will go away. Flush the codeine as that will only drag this out and is way to tempting.
Avatar f tn You do want to be sure you don't overheat when exercisiing if you have heat sensitivity. I wrote an extensive piece about exercise from listening to a physical therapists' teleconference recently. You can read it under my journal - http://www.medhelp.org/user_journals/show/278310/Fatigue---Exercise-and-Therapy-Tips?personal_page_id=865800 You can listen to these teleconferences by following the instructions at http://www.medhelp.org/user_journals/show/281871/MS-Foundation-links--?
Avatar n tn I run about 3 miles a day on the treadmill (usually 3 miles in 30 mins). I'm taking 25mg of Atenolol 2x a day for pvcs and mild hypertension (my blood pressure varies between 125/80-140/80 but has gone higher on occasion- I also suffer from mild MVP and occassional panic attacks) I'm 33 yrs old, 6ft, 168pds. Otherwise healthy. My question is when I finish running on the treadmill my heart rate is usually only about 90 after three miles at a reasonably fast pace.
660974 tn?1248276268 Everytime I start a workout and healthy eating program I start to gain weight. I just gained 3 lbs and 1 inch in my waiste and hips. My clothes are like getting really tight. I used to be able to eat anything and as much as I wanted. I eat junk food maybe once a week, I don't drink alcohol or sodas. Just water and skim milk. My diet consists of white meat chicken, fish, salads, fat free cheese and low fat cheese, Whole grain cereals, whole wheat bread, fruits and vegetables.
98010 tn?1305903335 It seems like everytime I add exercise to my healthy eating I tend to gain weight instead of lose. After several weeks of trying to be patient and give the exercise program (mostly aerobic walking) a chance, I tend to get frustrated and give up exercising because my goal is to lose weight not gain it. Does this happen to anyone else? Am I not giving exercise enough time to see the benefits? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
