Avatar f tn ( you need to be exercising mostly in the aerobic range for most efficient fat burning) Steps to (Karvonen Formula) My Target Heart Rate *Subtract your age from 220. 220 – 34 = 186 *Check your resting heart rate. 46 (yes, my heart rate is that low!) *Subtract that from the figure in Step 1. 186 - 46 = 140 *Multiply that number x 65 percent for 140 x .65 = 91 for the low end your low range and x 85 percent for your 140 x .85 = 119 for the high end high range.
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?

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.
Avatar n tn Since the beginning of 2007, i have lost an amount of weight from being a 58 kilo to 56 kilos. This i had done by investing a lot of time in the gym and working out and eating a low carbohydrate but a healthy diet. However, i am concerned because i stopped working out or dieting since March 2007 and my weight seemed to remain the same to 56 kilos.
Avatar f tn Losing 10 pounds in a month means losing 2.5 pounds per week. That translates to a calorie deficit of 1250 kcal per day. Assuming your BMR is 1800 kcal. Your daily intake allowance would be 550 kcal. A safe diet would be eating at least 1200 kcal. That means you should do 650 kcal of exercise. Exercising that much would be tough though.
Avatar f tn Are you guys losing weight without trying or are you having to count calories and or working out to lose it??
1657318 tn?1312172783 You could be gaining lean muscle weight from your exercising. Muscle does weight more than fat so the scale may not reflect what is happening to your body. Suggest you continue what you have been doing and measure your body to determine weight loss/toning, not a scale. Thank you for your question.
Avatar f tn So, stabilize your diet for a month and see if you are losing weight or not. If you are not losing weight, then consult a doctor to rule out anemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism and polycystic ovaries. If you have any of these problems, which can start at any age, then you will find it difficult to shed weight. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn this weej I decided I wanted to start working on losing my pregnancy weight (my son is 4 weeks) I started trying to eat really healthy but feel like my supply dropped slightly so ive decided I wannaexercise! are there exercises I cant do or anything that might mess with my supply?
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 The problem I have is, over Christmas I put on around 10 pounds, and am now absolutely unable to shift it at all. I have never had any problem losing the weight once I put my mind to it but it doesn’t matter what I do I just can’t seem to shift it at all.
Avatar n tn Sometimes it's just as good, if not better, to lose inches than to lose weight...Since you're losing inches, you're not losing muscle, which is a good thing. If you're exercising quite a bit, it's customary to build muscle, which will keep your weight more stable, but since muscle is more densely packed, a pound of muscle doesn't take up as much space as a pound of fat.
566878 tn?1218813179 I had operation to remove once last two years ago. I am losing my weight day by day now. Does it relate with the breast lumps?
Avatar f tn It depends on what your starting weight is and the way you are losing it. If you have a higher starting weight and you are losing weight because you are eating healthier and exercising than your okay. If your doctor says its okay, you should be fine. Plus you have more than half your pregnancy ahead of you to gain some of that weight back. Don't stress, i am sure you'll be fine.
Avatar n tn I was 125 and now I am 140. I am exercising also, and I am still not losing. I am really worried.
Avatar f tn There are no short-cuts to losing weight. Do not get lured by tall claims made by several supplements. Slow and steady weight loss achieved through portion size control, eating healthy and exercising goes a long way in helping you maintain the weight loss. Please discuss with your doctor, dietician, physical trainer or a buddy into weight loss and chalk out a program you can enjoy and stick to. Take care!
