Avatar f tn Hi, my question is related to the macronutrients ratio ideal for my case. I have PCOS and very high insulin levels in the blood, though not yet diabetec. How many carbs are too many in my case? I also read that some types of fat and protein also have a definite impact on insulin. How should I balance these properly?
Avatar n tn Ideal pregnancy weight gain is all based off your starting weight/height ratio. If you feel you are gaining to fast maybe try healthier smaller meals and adding some excessive (light eversizs) you can't do a whole lot about weight gain during pregnancy besides earrings right and trying to avoid binging on cravings and instead eat just enough to knock the craving out. Unless your dr is concerened (and they will tell you) just enjoy the pregnancy!
Avatar m tn Lower BMI is associated with SVR. Newer thinking is that the waist/height ratio may be more relevant than BMI at least in terms of ideal body composition. Your height should be twice your weight in inches (or more), at least for men. Don't think this emphasis on belly fat was studied in terms of SVR but it couldn't hurt to lose any excess prior to treatment.
Avatar m tn My height is around 5 feet 6 inchers and my weight is 84kg. Can you tell me what should be the my normal body weight.
Avatar f tn a quick answer for extra calories: olive oil, which might lower LDL and raise HDL. You should look at the ratio of HDL to LDL instead of LDL alone. Did you know that roughly 50% of people who have heart attacks have normal LDL levels? Eating a lot of carbs might raise triglycerides, which can be as bad as LDL. Carbs can also raise blood glucose and insulin levels. So you might concentrate on low glycemic carbs. Nothing is hardly ever simple. Is LDL bad?

Avatar f tn I really wouldn't worry about it, you're a healthy weight for your height. Also, at your age in particular, there's not really an ideal weight/height ratio. I was the same- it's common to weigh a little more than you'd like before, during and just after puberty- I'm 17 and my weight's only just settled! However, regular exercise is always a good idea. Yoga is a nice choice- it takes time to see results but it has numerous health benefits and is a good way of de-stressing.
Avatar m tn Actually you're not. The adequacy of your weight for your height is calculated by your bmi or body mass index. It's basically weight divided by the square of height in meters. Accordingly you are 23.5 and you're doing ok.Maybe you just need to get fit.
1938479 tn?1325709220 If Arnold Schwarzenegger was to use a BMI (weight vs height) chart while bodybuilding, it would have classified him as obese. Another way to look at fat versus muscles is that a cubic inch of muscle will weigh more than a cubic inch of fat. Muscle is about 18 percent more dense than fat. So a better question is am I in shape or do i need to convert more areas of fat to muscle? With that said, here is a weight chart that should only be used to give you an idea, so don't take it as gospel.
Avatar n tn My waist is only 31 inches. Using the BMI I am listed as slightly overweight but using weight/height ratio, 46.6% I am extremely healthy and my body fat is about 23% right now, again right in the ideal measurements. I am you this because especially women can't care too much about what the scale says. If you tend to carry your fat in you legs and butt like I do, the BMI will always measure too high. If you have questions I can help you with the calculations.
Avatar f tn 8 ounces) of water equals one kilo of weight. (2.2lbs) Another thing, if you know your height, check online to see ideal weight to height ratio. You might find you may only need to lose a few pounds rather than thinking you need to lose alot. So be aware low calories is not going to make you lose weight.

Avatar f tn I found a height to weight ratio chart. I copied just the portion that would apply to you. Here's what it says: Height lbs 4' 11" 86 - 105 5' 0" 90 - 110 At 4'11 1/2", I would say you could go anywhere between 86 and 110 lbs; therefore, you are currently at the low end of your range. DON'T try to lose any weight - it wouldn't be healthy for you. Maybe your sisters are jealous of your small stature or something. Don't listen to them.

Avatar n tn I am a fit and trim man and have modified my eating habits decades ago to maintain appropriate weight to height ratio. Now that I am 'cured' I will drop my pectin intake to 1 teaspoon/day. In Jan'08 I will be tested again to see in the lower maintenance dose is effective. Good Luck to All, Terry PS: Take responsibility for your own health by educating yourself. Don't trust Doctors. They are paid directly by drug companies. Do not accept advice, carte blanche, from people without names.
469720 tn?1388149949 Treating High Blood Cholesterol When a patient without heart disease is first diagnosed with elevated blood cholesterol, doctors often prescribe a program of diet, exercise, and weight loss to bring levels down.

Avatar m tn unable to lose weight, high hip waist ratio, acanthosis nigricans, skin tags, increase in height (grown 3cm and i'm in my 30's!) and possibly the cause of my kidney damage. My insulin levels are normal (albeit high normal) but this condition can show up with normal labs. Who knew right?

545538 tn?1295995617 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, looked at specific causes of deaths in relation to body mass index, a ratio of height and weight. A BMI of 25 to less than 30 is considered overweight, while a BMI of 30 or greater is considered obese. The study did find significant risks linked to obesity, including a higher risk of death from heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease, and several cancers that have been linked with obesity, such as breast, colon and pancreatic cancer.
Avatar n tn I've done extensive internet research and even spoken with health professionals on this matter, but no one ever has a solid answer or advice on my situation. I am a female, 28, ideal weight/height ratio, exercise 5 days per week, eat extremely healthy (mostly vegetarian, 3-4 meat/animal protein servings per week). I drink water, 1-2 cups of coffee some mornings, but no soda. I limit my intake of sugar and avoid processed foods.
Avatar f tn Around age 40, I began gaining weight. This was strange because I'd always weighed 97lbs since I was a teenager. It never changed, and I didn't try to change it. At first, I didn't mind so much. At 5'4", I looked better around 110lbs, anyway. But the weight gain steadily continued, and no amount of diet and exercise changed that. I did sooooo many things to lose weight. I ate nothing. I ate more than normal. I exercised intensely. The weight gain slowly continued.
Avatar m tn There was a thread a while back in which the risk/reward ratio of a vigorous game of "This Little Piggy" was discussed at length - would that be an appropriate therapy, in your opinion?

Avatar n tn I want to see if they will notice anything. I'm currently at 212. My ideal weight is around a max of 179. But, my bf% is well under 20%. In act it is around 15. But the problem areas are still there. No matter what I do the problem areas remain. I'll be running the 23 day plan. I hope this will get me where I need to be.
Avatar n tn Sluggish, headaches, sporadically not motivated, weight gain, difficult to lost weight even after running up to 5 miles three times a week, not happy, anxious, tired but difficult to go to sleep (high level of axiety, i think), etc.. I don't have the energy to get exicted over things anymore. Basically lots of the symptoms that I have found online for hypothyroidism. I am 35 in a couple weeks and I just attributed most of the way I feel to just getting older.
Avatar n tn OK Guy's, i found this thread by accident and i thought it would be important to reply. First off i want everyone to relax and stay calm and i don't want anyone to think about suicide, i suffered the exact same as you guy's did but no one to give me any kind of answers (i am only 24 myself). I have the answers you guy's need, so please let me explain my own story first. When i was born, i was a healthy, young baby boy.
