Avatar m tn I'm 36, healthy, ideal weight and I find that my short term memory is depleting at a rapid rate. What can I do or take to help with this....I have tried the B12 liquid but I notice no change. This problem is getting really embarrassing at the point I must write everything down or I will forget.
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.
479244 tn?1271563659 Does anyone know anything about the IDEAL study? This is where I think the info came from regarding my original decision to go with the pegintron.... less relapse rate, less sides, stays in system shorter amt. of time when you come off , etc. My new nurse, said that study had a lot of flaws and she did not put a lot of faith in it and talked me into pegysus... any comments would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn Hi :), I don't have a family doctor, so, I'm mainly going off of how others lost the weight, but I do know that losing a lot of weight very quickly is unhealthy which is why I set the year or so timeline. I don't expect to be exactly on target then it is just a reaching goal. I've checked the charts and the average rate for my height and age is 120 to 145. I've used to be very small and gain weight quickly when I hit my teens and haven't been able to lose it.
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 f tn aspx Figure your heart rate by this formula The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone. The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts.
Avatar f tn If you're doing a lot of weight-training, then you've obviously put on muscle. It weighs a whole lot more than fat, so even though you're working out and LOSING FAT, you're not losing the WEIGHT because you've upped your muscle percentage. This is healthy, and muscle burns calories even at rest, so you've increased your metabolic rate (which is good!).
Avatar m tn Did you double check your bmi/ ideal weight? I'm only an inch taller than you and my ideal weight is at 126. Perhaps, now that your body has had a pregnancy and especially if you're breast feeding 105 might just be underweight. That being said I don't think 1200 calories is too little, but if you are breast feeding it might be. Try boosting it up by another 50 calories to see if that helps at all. The only other thing I can think of is your normal weekend days might be too much.
Avatar n tn So many people assume that in order to lose weight, they have to constantly do strenuous exercise....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.

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.
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 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 n tn The hard part about gaining weight for some people is that our bodies have a set ideal body weight and yours is now set at 120lbs. I myself am 20 years old and have weighed the same since I was 16. The only way to gain weight is to consume excess calories every single day for a couple of months. Make sure though that you are getting some benefit from the excess food and not eating cake or doughnuts.
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 n tn I'm not sure what you're asking us. Has the weight loss left you at an unhealthy weight for your height and build? If so, you need to see your doctor immediately. If you are happy about the weight loss and find it beneficial to your health, consider that a very nice side effect. Some ADs DO affect our weight, but usually not to extremes. You are not losing weight at a dangerous rate. 4.5lbs a month is a safe and healthy rate.
