Avatar f tn Hello, I wanted to know what kind of diet pill I can take for losing weight?
Avatar f tn So I've been on a low calorie diet (less than 1500 calories) per day and working out at the gym for an hour oror more 4 times a week. I'm currently at 147lbs and have been for the last 3 weeks!! Since i started my diet. Has this happened to anyone else. I know it might just be muscle keeping me from losing weight. I would love some advice about working out and losing weight.
Avatar f tn what is the trick to losing weight it dont matter how i cut back or dont eat at all i never lose anything.
Avatar f tn I have symptoms of cushings but recently lost weight after cutting out white carbs and sugar and because I’m so scared, I stopped eating. Today I only had a few pieces of cheese and a couple falafel balls. Is it normal to lose weight? My face used to be puffy and it’s thin now. I’m scared this is caused by a cancerous tumor. I had a clear pituitary mri and a clear abdominal ct scan. I’m losing tons of hair and growing facial hair. My muscles feel weak. I’m prediabetic and insulin resistant.
Avatar f tn In any case, take this number as a trigger to look at your health, cutting carbs and particularly refined carbs and processed foods, losing weight if you need to, and exercising consistently. please ask if you have more questions and we will be happy to respond.
1467664 tn?1288579313 A couple thoughts, Sam. Have you been checked for thyroid? Thyroid disease is more common with us type 1's and that could make it very hard to lose weight. Do get a simple blood test for your thyroid fuction. One sure way that type 1's gain weight is to go by the philosophy of "eat whatever I want and bolus for it". That means more carbs, more insulin, more weight and possible development of insulin resistance which you do not want!
Avatar n tn It is important to know that a diet plan is not about cutting down calories; it’s about ‘healthy’ eating. With cutting on diet one may initially lose weight but this may remain static or increase later due to fat accumulation. When one cuts down on calories, the body sends a signal to the brain which in turn turns on the ‘stress hormones’ and the body switches into the ‘starvation mode’ and paradoxically one may notice no change in weight or an increased weight and fat accumulation.
Avatar f tn We do need some carbs, but a lot of people have lost a lot of weight by simply cutting anything white.... flour, bread, sugar, tortillas, rice, etc. Eat the healthiest food available. The short of it is, eating right, eating often but watching the caloric intake, drinking plenty of water and getting plenty of exercise.....
Avatar m tn Irrespective, assuming type 2 diabetes, the treatment will be losing weight if overweight, cutting carbs (particularly sugar, grains, starches - look into low carb / ketogenic diet), exercise, and medications if the previous lifestyle approaches are not sufficient. You can do this.
Avatar n tn Is that just a part of losing weight? How could I curb this? Healthier snacks help cut the hunger part a bit, but I still feel sick until I eat something unhealthy. PS, I do not have diabetes and no early signs of it as well.
Avatar m tn Hi there! If you are aiming at losing weight, it is important to calculate your current BMI and the target BMI. The target BMI should be in a healthy range. Aside indulging in moderate amounts of physical exercise it is also essential to maintain a healthy diet plan. A healthy diet should consist of adequate amounts of calories with carbohydrates, proteins, fat and plenty of fruits and vegetables to supply vitamins and minerals.
Avatar n tn I'm a 13 year old girl, I have a problem with my insulin resistance , I play basketball 5 times a week I tried following a diet once but I didn't seem to be losing any weight and I wanna lose weight by June
Avatar n tn First, if you're at all muscular, you're not all that overweight. If you're not muscular, you don't need to lose a ton of weight. Calories aren't key to losing weight -- how quickly and efficiently you metabolize your food into sugar and how well you digest your nutrients is far more important.
Avatar f tn Good question, and for each person, there's a different answer. For some people, they can do a 1200 - 1500 calorie diet, depending on height, weight, and activity level. For others, that kind of diet would be cutting far too many calories and could even be dangerous. And for others still, it may be too many calories. Factors that contribute are height, age, activity level, and gender. Men can eat more than women. The taller you are, the more you need to eat.
Avatar m tn I'm not a fan of "across the board" low carb diets, because not all carbs are created equal. By the same token, I don't advocate cutting out any one food group, such as the bread. I would suggest switching to whole grain breads and limit the amount (not eliminate it completely), implement lots of veggies into your diet (complex/good carbs and fiber). Agree that lots of protein will help keep you from losing muscle, but won't prevent it completely.
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.
1484618 tn?1290000665 Cut out soda, cut down on simple sugars & simple Carbs. Smaller meals, balanced diet. Walk, ease into workouts. Think lifestyle changes instead of quick instant results. Losing weight for us PCOSers is difficult no matter how overweight we are. Don't get discouraged. As little as 10lbs can make a difference.
Avatar n tn Are you having trouble losing weight on the Phentermine alone? I am on this too 15 mg twice a day. It isn't a complete stop appetite pill. I started out taking it once a day in the morning. Then later twice per day. I helps me to control how much I eat. I started in January and now I'm 37 pounds down. But before I started to take this medicine I got away from red meats, sweets, white bread. Basically carbs all around. That got me into a good eating habit.
