Avatar f tn re eating like you should and not losing weight on purpose.
Avatar f tn Some people have nausea and vomiting and some have sores in their mouths so they may be losing weight because they are not eating much. In addition, I make sure I get plenty of fat. I would rather gain a few pounds and get rid of this virus than skimp on the fat and end up keeping the virus. Incivek, espceially, needs that 20 grams of fat every time.
Avatar f tn I'm 11 weeks and since I became pregnant I have lost 6 pounds. Keep in mind that I'm not drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes anymore.. but is this normal or okay? With my first pregnancy I was 119 when I got pregnant, and that was 6 years ago. With this pregnancy I was 146 and now I'm weighing 140. I eat constantly but worried this isn't okay. Can anyone help ease my thought process?
Avatar n tn When focusing on weight loss instead of measuring on a scale try measuring yourself with a tape measure and see the inches come off. It is common the inches go first before the weight drops off. Next I would look at your diet, how many meals a day? Portion size? % of fat, carbs, protein consuming in a day approx? Do you et late at night? Are you eating to many calories for your body? How much sodium are you taking in as that can cause you to retain water?
Avatar n tn My nicotine cravings are now under control, (I quit cold turkey so there is no nicotine substitute), so I have gone on a low fat, low calorie diet and I am participating in an exercise program of low impact aerobics. My problem is I am not losing weight. I have read that nicotine withdrawal slows your metabolism. Is this true and will I ever be able to lose this weight? Will my metabolism return to normal? Thanks, G.C.
Avatar f tn Building muscle mass can lead to weight gain. Once you have reached a plateau level weight loss seems to be difficult. Take care of your diet. Eating too often or eating portions that are too large will also cause weight gain. Drink plenty of water and continue with your exercises. Avoid the intake of alcohol and smoking. Balanced eating is the only sustainable way to achieve long-term healthy weight loss. I hope you find this useful. Do write to us again with more queries.
Avatar n tn As far as exercise, get some weights and do some weight training, or do some push-ups. Cardio is not necessary for losing weight. In fact, I believe that running too much can be bad for you. That's a whole other topic of conversation. Stick to high-intensity workouts for shorter periods & you'll be healthier. Also, remember that it's not what you do at the gym that makes you look/feel great, it's what you do at home in the kitchen that counts.
Avatar m tn t changed my lifestyle in any way, regarding eating habits, exercise, how much water i drink, etc, but i have recently quit smoking (~4 months), yet have not seen any visible changes, i.e. new fatty tissue, nor muscle because i am not more active than i used to be. The charts put me towards the overweight range (5'3", 130 lbs), yet i don't feel overweight at all, in fact it feels like i'm losing fat extremely fast.
Cat I had bariatric surgery, gastric bypass surgery two years ago, lost 170 lb, then 3 months ago I stopped smoking and now I am putting weight back on, 8 to 11 lbs, so far, I worked so hard to get to where I am, I am glad I stopped smoking but afraid of the weight gain, lost on what to do now.
Avatar f tn Smoking actually increases your risk of developing thyroid disease. Every link you find that lists risk factors for developing a thyroid disease lists smoking as a risk factor. I say that as a smoker of 35 years now. I can't explain any of what you have experienced other than to say I feel it is coincidental. It's possible that stopping smoking stressed your system to the point it threw off your hormones.
