Avatar f tn I'm a 20 year old woman who is extremely overweight. My problem is that I don't see myself as fat, I know that I am bigger, because I always have been, but now I look in the mirror and I realize that it has gotten severly out of hand. I've tried dieting before and usually I give up a day or two in, the last time I did much better. I was counting my calories and exercising every day, and I did not lose a single pound. When I realized that I wasn't losing weight I gave up.
710170 tn?1229237415 i started walking alot more and limited the amount of sweets and junk food and cut out regular soda. the only way pcos will get better is by losing weight. you should talk to your doctor about going on metformin, its the medicine that is typically given to women who have pcos. but in order not to feel really sick while taking it, you must follow a healthy diet. i made that mistake last year and got sick everytime i took it because i wasn't following a diet.
Avatar f tn Hello, I wanted to know what kind of diet pill I can take for losing weight?

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.
699217 tn?1323438700 I know basically all the details of losing weight, eating right and exercising, but the question is how do you all keep thin? Lol, I can take it off, I know I can, but any tricks or tips you all have would be greatly appreciated. I would like to lose it slowly and keep it off :) thank you my friends.
Avatar n tn s keeping you from losing weight. By eating regular meals, you can better incorporate a mix of vegetables, protein, whole grains and healthy fats into your diet. Snacking, typically, ends up being fruit, candy bars, crackers, sandwiches, chips and all the things that aren't so good for you and tend to make you, either, gain or hold onto weight.
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 Its good you've set a goal and are looking to find out how to achieve it! However losing 15 pounds in a month is unrealistic and unhealthy. Did you know it takes about a year for your body to adjust to losing 10 pounds? It's important to remember weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier!
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 f tn Hi there daiisyy, You say you " have a bad habit and you don't like to eat breakfast". That's more than just a bad habit. Think of breakfast like fuel for your body. It's really advisable to have protein, some carbs and maybe some fruit for breakfast. The protein will also helps you think and gives you energy as does the carbs. As for going to the gym, you don't have to go everyday. Walking is one of the best exercises you can do.

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 In 8weeks going on 9weeks now, no morning sickness a plus, just nauseous feeling. Super excited but I losing not gaining weight ... Is this ok or should I jus start eating a lot ??
Avatar n tn I have recently lost a lot of weight and I have struggled with my weight for a long time but there is no quick fix, you need to follow a plan of healthy eating and exercise and I know that is not what you want to hear but losing weight is a life choice and you will need to think about what you eat for the rest of your life as your body has got to be with you for the rest of your life.
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
Avatar f tn Am gonna breast feed and workout, but I wanna add the belly bandit to see if it will help tighten up things faster....I ve seen some good reviews online that it works, but wanted see if anyone on this forum have tried it.
Avatar f tn Hi lindsay You are a bit on the young side for Type 2 diabetes, but it certainly would be useful to get tested because people can develop pre-diabetes and not even know it. I'm not sure what you mean by "blood type diet".
Avatar f tn When you eat, for example, a sugary substance, like a glass of chocolate milk, the blood sugar (glucose) level goes up. Your body responds by injecting insulin into your blood, and this triggers the glucose to enter your cells and be converted to fat. Pretty amazing phenomenon. This is why if a kid does nothing but sit down and eat candy (pure sugar substrate) all day, they will grow fatter and fatter. This key fact holds the secret to the fat loss you are seeking.
Avatar f tn I'm a little confused. Is anyone else losing weight? I'm 11weeks 5days. My weight before pregnancy was 180. 6weeks prego my weight was 168, 8weeks was 161, today i'm at 155. I thought in the beginning it was from morning sickness and being actually sick, but for 3 weeks i haven't had a lot of morning sickness since i started drinking sprite and i haven't been sick. I thought for sure by mid 11 weeks i would have gained at least a pound or two. Am I the only one losing?
2053729 tn?1330435506 According to what I have researched, my BMR is 2485 and I eat about 1800 calories a day, so I should be losing weight just being me. Add in the approximate 2000 calories I burn with my exercise and I should be melting into a puddle! We do a lot of weights, pilates, abs, pushups, strength bands and squats at my aerobics class so I know my body is changing. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I have had my thyroid checked in the last 4 months and it was "normal".
Avatar f tn My symptoms are weight loss, I am staying at a weight of 105 now but I eat all the time and never gain. Leg aches, hair loss, anxiety, racing heart and tireness. I have seen so many doctors I have lost count. They all say it sounds like your thyroid. It has been tested time and time again and they always say it is normal. One of my last were, TSH 0.760, T4 0.97 CORTISOL 10.5 FREET3 2.9. It feels like there is something stuck in the middle of my throat sorta to the right.
Avatar f tn Do not drink soda pop, eliminate all unnatural sugar, do not eat anything white (rice bread pasta) white=sugar sugar=fat. Do a lot of core excercises. It is worth it to invest in a guided fitness program.
Avatar n tn I'm 38w and have been losing weight over the last couple of weeks. I had a check up on Friday and baby is fine, but midwife said i need to eat more. I just have no appetite at all though. Apart from 'little and often' does anyone have any suggestions for good things to eat when you're not hungry and have a watermelon in your belly?
