Ideal weight loss program

Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight loss program


Avatar m tn Meant to say "waist", not weight :) So, if your height is 70 inches, than your waist (no sucking it in :) ) should be no more than 35 inches. BTW I doubt you lost 4lbs of fat today, probably most of it is water weight. Best to lose weight gradually anyway -- like 1-2 lbs per week. Not sure what your nurse means by "make no diff".

Avatar n tn Hello, I am a 29 year old female, 5'4 and 131 pounds. I recently lost over 100 pounds in the course of a year through diet and exercise. (starting weight 244 in September of 2010). I have always been overweight, and now have a lot of excess skin, which is to be expected. My question is about my ideal weight. My goal started at 150 pounds, then 140, then 130, now I'm thinking my ideal would be 120.
Avatar f tn Please know that I am not trying to advertise the Dr. Bernstein Weight Loss Program. The reason I mentioned this program is because even with the Dr. Bernstein Program , you loose about 4-5 lbs per week, not 10 ilbs per week. I lost close to 40 ibs on this program. I stopped the program because I was satisfied with this amount of weight loss even though the doctor on sight said I could loose another 10 lbs.
Avatar f tn Hi there and thanks so much for posting this question I would suggest that at your age you are careful with changes in your metabolism. What is metabolism? Metabolism is a collection of chemical reactions that takes place in the body's cells. Metabolism converts the fuel in the food we eat into the energy needed to power everything we do, from moving to thinking to growing. If you want to lose weight The safest amount of weight you can lose is anything from .5 to 2 lbs a week.
Avatar f tn caregiver222's advice is logical. If for some reason you can't afford the test, try the Slow Carb Diet. The name is misleading, it should be called the Slow Carb Nutritional Program! You can stay on it for the rest of your life! If you own an iPhone - the apps are free online. You can order it online as a hardcover or an eBook. Basically, you can everything except for "White Carbohydrates" .... Bread, potatoes, fruits, rice & noodles - for example!
Business woman2 If you have stopped losing weight, then probably you have reached your ideal body weight and need to maintain that. Hence check your BMI and see. If this is not the case then you need to change the exercises you are doing and also your diet plan. Take more of fiber rich zero calories fruits and vegetables, clear soups, lean cuts of meat, fish, egg whites etc along with smaller portions of carbs and minimal amount of good fat. Take care!
Avatar n tn fatigue, hair loss, cold feet at night, memory loss,depression, exercise like a maniac but can't lose weight (5'3 - 144lb), throat feel like it need a blanket underneath to separate by skin, High LDL, low Vitamin D. The endo told me that it would be possible that i get Hashi's but it won't be until 5-10 out. He was going to do a 'wait n see' approach. :( I was just happy he gave me meds, but it feels that i may need a new doctor.
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 s recommended to keep weight loss between 1-2 lbs a week. Usually in your first week that may be a little more depending on how big of a change you make, but an average of 1-2 lbs a week is ideal. I also think it's important to avoid all those easy quick weight loss things- those pills, meals, shakes, etc don't teach you how to keep this weight off. What you really need is a complete lifestyle change so you never ever get back your excess weight.
2047155 tn?1527163964 Finally -your weight is at 163 it says so your ideal is 123? Please double check that that is a healthy weight for you to be at. Keep in mind that BMI has it's limits so when you get down there listen to your body- if it feel's good at any specific weight in the healthy range, maybe that's where you're supposed to be.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know of any weight loss places near or around the Cleveland Ohio area I live in Willoughby. I moved here from Las Vegas I was on a program where I received the b12 combo shot along with a appetite suppressant I have been having trouble finding one around here.
Avatar f tn Hormonal changes that happen during the pregnancy make it extremely difficult to achieve your pre-baby weight. As far as the speed of weight loss, 1-2lbs per week is a healthy rate of weight loss - especially for someone like you that isn't too far from "ideal body weight". There isn't anything magical about Insanity or other similar programs. They are high intensity exercises that can be done at home with little equipment - really nothing more to it than that.
Avatar f tn Weight loss is never easy even under ideal circumstances and proper body metabolism. people with Hypo and therefore low metabolism find it difficult if not even impossible to loose weight until their thyroid leve is optimized. Unfortunatly due to the state of the medical community, even people who are identified as Hypo and begin treatment are never truly optimized and are routiniely undermedicated.
Avatar n tn A diet of 800 calories for your BMI cannot sustain you for any length of time PLUS you run the risk of slowing down your metabolism, for self-preservation, (we have inherited this from our ancestors, when there were periods of drought with very little availability of food) The most effective weight loss program consists of elements which you will follow all your life, based on sound and solid nutritional and fitness/exercise principles . Easy does it!
Avatar n tn Your ideal weight depends on your age, as well as your height and weight. A child's ideal weight will be different from that of a teenager and a teenager will be different from that of an adult. There are a variety of exercises that will burn fat.
Avatar f tn t have hypothyroidism. You might also want to get tested for insulin resistance and PCOS, which also make weight loss very difficult to impossible.
Avatar f tn And in reality, this isn’t the case either. Now, to understand how exercise effects weight-loss, you have to understand how your body creates energy, and there are only 2 ways it does it. One is by burning fat and the other is by burning blood sugar, or glucose. Even when you’re not doing anything strenuous your body still burns fat. It’s known as “Resting Metabolic Rate.” So, when you’re sitting at a desk, driving a car, watching TV, or even sleeping, your body is still burning fat.
