Avatar f tn I need help losing weight. I have acne and I'm sure that the cause is to much fat in my diet. I have tried eating less and I only lost half a pound. Its hard for me to do physical activity without trouble breathing, or whatever body part I'm using to have major discomfort. Help!
Avatar f tn s best to calculate number of calories needed, based on your current age, weight, height and activity level. That way you can make sure you get enough, but not too many.
10366239 tn?1409616907 I am over weight because for the last few years I've had a "desk job" and I was not exercising at all because I was always wiped out because of my hours. I have a new job and I walk constantly. Today I walked 5 miles just at work. I'm not eating differently but I'm losing weight because of the activity. I know I'm supposed to be gaining weight. I don't know how this works. I can't not work and exercise is important anyway.
29837 tn?1414534648 I saw the primary a week ago regarding this problem. His take, as well as mine, is the result of stopping the dreadful pain medication Oxycodone abruptly, which was prescribed for me after my spinal surgery. As my ideal weight is 185, I now am 173. However, that's one pound more than a week ago. What this means, is that I'm not losing anymore weight, but have gained one pound. This tell me it's a gradual recovery from the withdrawal I'm going through. I know losing 15 lbs.
10161345 tn?1488138652 So according to my calculations using the standard by a ob's office, I should be literally six weeks pregnant today. I've been losing weight slowly but steadily for 2 years, however I'm a little concerned. During the actual weeks since estimated conception dates, I've actually lost another 4 lbs. Just some nausea, and dizziness mostly, no vomiting and no huge changes in appetite or lifestyle. Anyone familiar with this?
Avatar f tn Once I stop my diet, how can I ever get myself to eat the amount I SHOULD be able to eat to maintain my new weight without gaining weight. This whole process of weight loss is a lot more complicated than I though.
Avatar n tn If you're really losing and not gaining back you must be so thin. It's normal for the body to increase a few pounds before a lot of times because we crave salt which retains water in the body. During a period many bloat adding weight then when it's done that water weight, blood and bloat go down. I fluctuate 5 lbs or so. I have an irregular period so seeing a few pounds go on is sometimes a clue for me that I'm going to start soon.
Avatar f tn (700 calorie per day X 5 days= 3500 calories. Now... you can increase the daily calorie deficiency by exercising more and lose weight faster. One hour of walking will burn up about 300-325 calories if you walk at a moderate speed. Bottom line is learn how to determine how many calories your using daily and then know how many calories your eating daily... that way you will know if your doing what you should be doing to lose weight. Ok next.
Avatar m tn m not sure if not having enough protein is contributing to me not losing weight. I hear people talk about how they lose a pound a week and the such, but I've run 5 miles a day for 5 days straight for 1 month and have only lost 1-2 lbs. What am I doing wrong?!
Avatar f tn For light activity, multiply BMR by 1.375. Moderate activity, multiply BMR by 1.55. And for heavy activity, multiply BMR by 1.725. For example, if the 38-year old woman above never exercises, she would have a daily caloric need of 1,888 to maintain her current weight. Losing Weight To lose 1 lb. per week, you'll have to cut 3,500 calories from your weekly caloric intake, or 500 calories per day. The U.S.
Avatar f tn Way to much weight for a12 yr old.At 15, I weighed 150, & that was to much forme!!!I ended up losing 35lbs. to get tomy ideal weight!!!
Avatar n tn I started to lose weight at two pounds per week and I have hypothyroidism which makes losing weight pain staking. You should only go for losing two pounds a week and no more than that. You might need to up your exercise for more cardio type activity.
Avatar f tn I am by no stretch and expert in weight loss but I am seasoned veteran in struggling over weight loss. I used to drive myself nuts over a number on a scale and through much failure final realized that losing an inch is better than losing a pound. Muscle weighs more than fat and at the rate you are exercising it may be possible that the scale is not changing even though your body mass is becoming more muscular.
978106 tn?1285108401 Not everyone can sustain a 1500 calorie/day diet; you may need more or less, depending on your current weight and activity level. The types of calories you eat will have an impact as well. Yes, I know a calorie is a calorie; however if you eat foods with, say, a lot of sugar or other simple carbs, you blood sugar will not be stable and that sugar is likely to turn to fat, much more quickly than lean protein and complex carbs (whole grains, nuts, seeds, etc.).

Avatar f tn Based on new data about the antioxidant levels of American foods that was published in early 2005 by US government, data shows that Açai has significantly greater antioxidant activity on a gram to gram comparative basis than any of the common fruits or vegetables Americans consume. However, when various açai products were tested frrom the commercial marketplace, many only had a fraction of the antioxidant activity.
