Avatar f tn How fast you can lose weight by eating just one big nutritious meal a day?
6710217 tn?1386110892 Some people use it as a form of losing weight, also, sometimes they pick a day or two out of the week to fast or not eat for that whole day.
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 Intermittent fasting can be done for weight loss and it does work. Many who do the fasting pick a "window" throughout the day (say from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm) and that's when they do their eating. Check out Dr Mercola; he's a great fan of intermittent fasting and has several articles on how to do it safely.
Avatar n tn Also, I should add, as this is the weight loss community, fasting is a terrible way to lose weight. When you go back to eating, if you haven't changed your diet permanently to one that works better for you you'll just go right back to where you started. There are a lot of good reasons to fast, but losing weight isn't one of them.
Avatar n tn Hi, maybe you are losing weight because of the metformin (it is a known side effect which is beneficial for many). You may also be losing weight because you are eating less calories. Do you want to lose weight? If you do, continue what you are doing. If you don't want to lose weight, you will need to eat more calories. These should be from more healthy fats (full fat dairy, butter, cream, olive oil, avocado etc), or by adding more protein (meats, eggs, nuts, etc). Hope this hlps.
Avatar f tn But in a few years - I may try all of these. My weight seems to have leveled off. Not losing any more weight, I uped my carb intake, was practically eating no carbs. I will wait to see what my nex A1c is ... Thaks so much for your input ... I have never heard of LADA type diabetes.
Avatar f tn Hehe. :) Speaking of toxins, I came across this article "5 Scientifically Proven Health Benefits of Intermittent Fasting" (I do intermittent fasting as my normal way of eating anyway; I fast 14 to 20 hours a day) which states this... "4. INTERMITTENT FASTING INDUCES AUTOPHAGY IN THE BODY You might wonder what the heck even is autophagy and why should you care?
Avatar f tn Fasting is tricky. Intermittent fasting originally meant, for example, not eating one day a week or one day a month. But remember, when your stomach is empty, make sure you don't have certain digestive problems, and make sure you don't get them. An empty stomach is a wonderful place for digestive juices to digest the wrong things, such as your stomach lining. It can lead to reflux. All these fads come with possible benefits and possible drawbacks.
Avatar m tn He may feel that your are not being proactive by losing the weight. Do you have a lot to lose?? Just wondering what his reasoning is.
Avatar m tn i almost never go above 110 now even after pizza or spaghetti or other heavy meal. this after losing some weight doing more exercise and eating less carb for 4 months. my fasting in morning is now 80-90 range most times < 85.

Avatar m tn 1 bmi aiming to lose 20kg in 3 month ... I gonna try my best to achive this by fasting on day and eat less food at night ... And do a lite exercise daily ...
Avatar f tn My glucose has always been normal. I have been steadily losing weight and now weigh 102. I previously 208. I lost my weight without trying, but doctors say I'm fine. I just had labs done and all liver tests decreased but still within normal levels, but most alarming to me was my glucose level rose from 95 to 113. Should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn I have doubt that losing the other 25 lbs will fix the problem, since I was experiencing high fasting glucose levels 5 years ago when I was at a normal weight. In early 2007 I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis, which in my case is severe, chronic, and debilitating. I am unable to exercise, even in water, due to what this disease has done to my bones, tendons, and muscles. Sarcoidosis can attack the pancreas, causing individuals to develop Type 2 Diabetes.
Avatar n tn I started out on 2-25mg topamax a day and was losing weight my dr put me on just 1-50mg now and am gaining weight like crazy,is there a reason for this change that I should be aware or have checked
Avatar f tn I do t hink you should see your doctor and discuss this all with him/her. The losing weight without intending to is not so good, and could be explained by something like diabetes. Please let us know how you go.
649848 tn?1534633700 Time-restricted eating -- a type of intermittent fasting -- proved no better for weight loss than eating consistent meals throughout the day, a new study found." https://www.medpagetoday.com/primarycare/dietnutrition/88850?
116881 tn?1189755823 Its a good bet that exercise and losing extra weight will help. However it does not always. Drink lots of water and walk. Watch those carbs. After meals is that 2 hours after or a short time after? It makes a difference.
Avatar f tn I was overweight and finally joined a weight loss group (TOPS). I managed to lose about 36 lbs. Having lost the weight I can now manage my diabetes with my diet. Since I now longer take Metformin I am having trouble losing the last 20 lbs I need to lose. Is there a connection between weight loss and taking Metformin. Has anyone else experienced this?
Avatar f tn Many of us with hepatitis C, even those of us who are cured, are dealing with type 2 diabetes. Losing weight and eating low carb is very helpful. My doctor put me on metformin which dropped my fasting blood sugar closer to normal range. But the thing that helped the most was cutting way down on carbs and losing 10 pounds. My A1C went from 6.0 to 5.6.
Avatar n tn If I followed a strict ADA diet while body building 4x a week, and also trying to gain weight by muscle…would I still reduce my chance of Type 2. Losing weight is not an option for me. Also I only average about 6 hrs a sleep for the past 5 year and drink tons of sodas.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure exactly but I dint know darling that fasting gets you no were it actualy puts you behind. Because when you fast your matabalizm slows down there for you gain weight in the long run. You can't not eat forever so when you start eating again if you fast you'll just gain weight. That's what stoped me from fasting. I fasted for 2 days. Well not exactly I ate dinner because my mum made me but I ate as little as possible.
Avatar f tn I lost weight by liquid and water fasting and some walking. Do your research though on how to go about losing weight the healthiest way possible. And if you are blessed enough to get the motivation you need, go full force into losing weight and never look back. If someone as lazy and crazy as me can lose 23lbs and occasionally get compliments, you will do it definitely. I believe in you and in a God who will give you all the strength and motivation that you need.
