Losing weight but not fat

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight but not fat


Avatar n tn Your body NEEDS fat! Saturated Fat does not make you fat! Real fat, from REAL, UNPROCESSED SOURCES, does not make you fat, it helps your body process the foods you are eating, and actually makes you thinner & healthier. Now, by FAT, I'm not talking about snack foods because that's processed sugars, carbs or trans-fat (not real). I'm talking about real foods like butter, cream, coconut oil, avocadoes, etc...
4590381 tn?1358259924 It may be possible that you are losing fat and not muscle mass so weight loss is not evident. As you said you have become too skinny I will advise you to see a doctor and get evaluated.Tiredness, fatigue can be due to several causes like improper diet, diabetes mellitus, anemia or thyroid disorders. You definitely need to be checked. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn Suggest improving your eating habits to help lose weight which recommend a Heart Healthy diet which is a moderate fat diet. You need approximately 1500-1800 calories per day which is spread across 3-5 meals a day with snacks between meals. Moderate fat diet means = use polyunsaturated (omega 3, corn oil, nuts, etc) fats and monounsaturated (olive oil, canola oil, peanut oil, etc) fats, no saturated fats (high fat snack foods, butter, fat spreads) and no trans fats.
978106 tn?1285108401 I do not expect to lose alot of weight at a time. I want to do this slowly so it will stick, but the problem is im gaining weight. I lost 11lbs at first and have since gained back 3 in the last 2 weeks. I also have been more active over the last month, but admit not so much in the last week, I took a full time temp job and go to school full time so I have not had the time as of late. Help!
Avatar f tn My ages 32 yo and 10 days ago my weight 74kg. I try my diet program call OCD (obsessive corbuzier diet) and now my weight 68kg and still doing the OCD. The main idea is we must keep away from calorie consume to our body for 16 hour a day. Within 16 hour only pure water and tea. Trust me it's work for me.
Avatar n tn Well first let me say im no expert here ...but i see a few things. 1. you're doing wieght training so you're likely adding muscle while burning fat..muscle weighs more than fat so i would suggest you ignore the scale for a bit. 2. you might try doing weigth training only 2 or 3 days a week to stay toned and add a bit to the cardio.. 3.you may not be eating enough ..
Avatar f tn pasta), low fat and substitute dairy products (1% milk, low fat/fat free yogurts, low fat soy milk/soy yogurt), use plant oils, non trans-fat margarines, and eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Eat daily high fiber breads and cereals (oatmeal).
Avatar f tn There can be a medical reasons why you are not losing weight such as hypothyroidism so it would be a good idea to see your doctor/pediatrician. Also, do not make the mistake of skipping meals hoping that the lack of calories will help you; it actually works the opposite. When a person skips meals, the brain gets tricked into thinking that the body is in starvation mode and therefore the brain tells the body to hold onto every fat cell!! A lot of people don't know that, especially teens.
Avatar n tn Fighting through the sluggishness and fatigue of hypothyroidism is difficult, but adding daily exercised can be a great aid in losing weight. If you aren't currently exercising, start with an easy walk. Get plenty of rest. The National Sleep Foundation reports that people who sleep less than 6 hours each night have a higher body mass index than people who sleep 8 or more hours.
Avatar f tn Ill be 6 months this month should I be be concerned that I'm not really gaining weight?
Avatar f tn Hi im 36 years old, weigh 62 kilos (136 pounds) and im 5 foot 2 inches, ive been using the Wii Fit plus for 3 weeks 1/2 hour of jogging and 1/2 doing step with weights for my arms every day, im eating healthy lots of fruit, smoothies and keeping to 1200 calories a day, i am an active person without excercise but have been keeping to my 1 hour a day and im not losing weight, infact my weight goes up and down by 2 pounds nearly everyday!
Avatar m tn I lose weight everywhere else but in my stomach. I used to excerise alot but my stomach is the main place I have fat instead im losing it in my feet and arms and hands whats going on?
4202320 tn?1366272200 Just to clarify - muscle isn't really "heavier" than fat...A pound is a pound, no matter what it's made of.... muscle is denser so a pound of muscle takes up less room than a pound of fat. Compare muscle with a rock and fat, with feathers........ You can have a relatively small rock that weighs a pound because its molecules are packed so densely, but think how big that pound of feathers is going to be because of all the "fluff".
Avatar f tn Much better to concentrate on small changes that you can live with. As you mention, losing weight may help not only with your general health, but also make you have reduced risk for heart disease, cancer, and...the list goes on!

Avatar m tn I was still kinda fat though at 130 so for 6 months i got a ton of protein and worked out and i gained some muscle and to this point i havent gained a ton of muscle even while eating/working out properly. I am 145ish now but i am still very fat for my weight . I an 5' 10' by the way. Why do i still have so much body fat after all this weight loss and working out? Is it possible i have hypothyroidism?

Avatar f tn Adding strength training movements will help your muscles be not only strong an flexible but also get rid of the fat in different parts of your body as long as you are training in a really good rate of intensity. I wrote a whole book about it and you can google in medhelp some of my movements here http://www.oprah.
Avatar m tn Man! I was about to post the same thing! I'm almost 50, 5'4" and began attempting to lose weight about 5 weeks ago. When I started, I weighed 140.7lbs. (For the past year or two, I haven't worked out and have eaten whatever I wanted...although still pretty healthy overall, and I've always stayed in the 140.7-145 range.) (About me: I never weighed over 100lbs 'til my 30s. I never exercised and ate whatever I wanted, although I did lead an active lifestyle.

Avatar n tn I am sweating profusely when on the elliptical and believe me, I am giving my heart a strong 30 minute workout. Could there be a medical reason why I am not losing any weight or seeing any noticable difference with all of the effort I am putting forth?
Avatar f tn even if your not hungry id eat fruit, nuts and good nutritous snacks that wont make you feel so bloated. Almonds are a good source of fat but a healthy fat and calories. I hope your taking a prenatal vitamin because eating once a day will not nourish that baby. your want to eat 3 times a day and two snacks mini meals throughout the day. speaking you are getting full id eat mini meals.
