2047155 tn?1527167564 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 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 8 for WEIGHT LOSS 1.0 is what I use for pets almost at ideal weight or at ideal weight that have a tendancy to gain weight. Now you can see why every manufacturer over estimates pet food quantities to feed. 1. they want to sell pet food, but 2. it's dependent on the pet and their ideal weight as opposed to their current weight. Go online to find the kcal/cup or can/pouch in the foods you feed. Most dry foods have 4-500 kcal/cup.
Avatar f tn The best way to lose weight is losing the weight slowly. Doing it this way will also hopefully allow you to keep the weight off. Losing 70 lbs in one year is too much in my opinion. I was looking at what you eat at breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's advisable to have some protein at every one of your main meals. I don't know if this is possible, but perhaps your doctor can refer you to a nutritionist or a dietician. Good luck with all of this.
Avatar f tn It'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. The first thing you need to do is eat right.
Avatar n tn I thought these 2 meds were known to be weight neutral or cause weight loss. My doctor knows my concern about the weight issue as this is something I have never fought to maintain while everything else in life seems to be a fight. If I stopped taking all meds, would I lose the weight and go back to my normal size. I do lack motivation that's for sure! I think or say I will start a program and don't.
Avatar n tn I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
789879 tn?1321330762 Hello, I am on my 4th round of HCG, and my results are almost none. My first round I went from 204 down to 185, my 2nd round from 185 to 172, my 3rd round from 173 to 172 (fluctuating between 172 - 174), and now 18 days into my 4th round I went from 195 to 191 currently. My 3rd round I didn't loose more than about 5 lbs., and here on my 4th round my results have been almost none. I don't seem to be hungry on the diet, and I have done the diet as close to protocol as I possibly can.
Avatar n tn Hi Harry, You describe yourself as "quite obese". That may not be true. Your BMI is 31.6, but BMI is a screening tool, not a diagnostic one, and it is greatly misused. In most people, BMI correlates well with body fat, but there are exceptions. You should ascertain your body fat percentage, because it is possible to have a BMI which is higher than "the ideal" yet have a "normal" body fat percentage.
Avatar f tn For weight loss, you want moderate, sustained exercise. You just have to keep your heart rate up. So try to check your heart rate and see if it's high enough every few minutes. If not, then increase speed or resistance. But otherwise it doesn't matter. You can look up your ideal cardio heart rate for your height and weight. Just google it.

1181890 tn?1264185256 I would target my ideal weight to about 150 lbs. I have normal blood pressure and a normal heart rate. My questions are is 2lbs a week a healthy weight lost for me and is this a healthy weight loss plan for me?
Avatar f tn his pulse rate is 65.can u plz tel me what would be an ideal weight and pulse rate after the operation.his age is 65 or above this.
1468797 tn?1291476579 Losing weight may seem difficult at first but you will slowly get used to it and once you see the results the motivation factors will increase resulting in more weight loss. Weight loss is tough but not impossible, don’t give up before you try and the results you achieve will be worth it. Information provided by: http://www.medexpressrx.
10538711 tn?1443575042 then what your body burns. Calories are the key to weight loss. In order to lose weekly weight you must make daily sacrifices like cutting calories from food and burning more calories with exercise. Accomplish your ideal physique by being realistic about your capabilities while also setting healthy and achievable weight-loss goals. Begin by calculating the calories you need to give up each day in order to reach your final goal.
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 f tn The chf has since resolved, hypertension and pulmonary hypertension are both predicted to self resolve within the next six months when I am euthyroid. My dilemma is weight loss or lack thereof. As it stands now I am on weight based dosing of levothyroxine. My dosage is 125mcg which is 80% of what my ideal dosage by weight is. My endocrinologist will run tests in 7 weeks to determine my numbers and upon reading all the great advice on here I insisted on a free t3 and t4 test as well.

Avatar f tn I am still experiencing extreme fatigue, very dry hair and skin, hair loss, disappearing eyebrows, weight gain/inability to lose weight, mild depression, joint and muscle aches. I am also recelty since increasing my meds experiencing some occassional insomnia and pounding heart at night (I think becuase it is time released). I will get new labs in about a week.
Avatar f tn well barb in all my efforts and expenses Ive worked out Ive lost about 8 to 9 kg in 8 months.If I continue losing weight at this rate I definately will not be a decent weight at 40.It will be 42 by the time I reach a decent weight and 43 by the time I reach ideal weight.How ever its not that bad cant complain Im lucky that I can still lose weight and havent stuffed my body up completely over the years of losing putting on and I always lost 26 kg fairly quickly.
93210 tn?1287457826 But I DO NOT appreciate being lectured to by a total stanger who has no clue about my medical history or what I have or have not tried in an effort to lose weight! Who are you anyway? Are you a physician who specializes in weight loss? Because a person like that is the only person I will take a lecture from and only when he or she has full knowledge of my medical history. I suggest you tone down your comments that you write in the future to other total strangers.
Avatar f tn I have been gaining weight at an alarming rate in the past couple of months despite a healthy diet. What gives, and what can I do? I now weigh 192 lbs.Some biological history: I am a 26 year old female, 5'8", with a solid bone structure. 2 yrs ago after a year of Weight Watchers maintenance at 159 my weight dipped into what the charts said was "Ideal" which was 147-150 lbs. I was excited, until I was hospitalized.
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 f tn I suggest buying a heart rate monitor. 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 n tn my diet has been very strict,i eat around 1200 calories a day only and in the gym i burn around 600 if i dont do any weight lifting. i dont know what is my ideal resting heart rate and whats my ideal fat burn heart rate. please advice,i dont wanna end up doing the wrong thing and hurt my self,all opinions are highly appreciated. thanks Fayiz.
Avatar n tn Dear j, I too am at somewhat of a loss as to what would be causing the extended elevation of your heart rate. Is it possible you are becoming dehydrated during your exercise? A low volume status may elevate heart rates. I would probably check a 24-hour Holter monitor test that includes a period of vigerous exercise to document the extent of the situation. If the Holter revealed only sinus tach it is possible you have inappropriate sinus tachycardia.
