Avatar f tn I hear of so many people losing weight after they stop drinking soda. I drank soda for about 10 years consistently...about three to four cans a day. I quit on February 20th of this year and along with that, I started exercising vigorously. I have only lost about 4 pounds. What gives? I didn't drop any weight from quitting the soda and on top of it I am a vegan and eat a pretty healthy diet. The weight is just not coming off. I thought from the soda alone I would drop a few more pounds.
Avatar n tn i take suboxone everyday but im losing weight i look worse now than when i was using, when i took methadone i was very happy cos my weight was normal now everyday i seem to be even thinner what shd i do
Avatar n tn I am pretty much 120 pounds overweight now, and I was actually quite skinny 6 years ago. I believe now that I have become a severe food addict. Well, I actually think it's not so much the food, but whatever "reward" my brain gives me from fat, salty, heavy foods.
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.

1688437 tn?1307982369 ve actually had friends tell me that the easiest part of losing weight was cutting out soda. Stress can also cause some weight loss so the stress of a new job cam be causing some of that as well. Try not to think the worst and be happy that youre losing some weight if you would like to lose some weight. During my worst anxiety episodes i lost 14lbs in about a month and a half. Its not uncommon for stress to cause some weight loss.

1003993 tn?1250729379 Quitting smoking is obviously very hard to do for many people, and if you focus on your weight too much at the same time, you could be disappointed. I think that quitting smoking is probably the healthiest thing you can do right now. It's a big start on the rest of your goals.
Avatar f tn I gave up all pop once I realized how much sugar is in a glass of pop. Diet soda is even worse. Most diet soda has an ingredient in it called Aspartame. Did you know that one of the ingredients of aspartame is wood alchohol. No joke. I researched aspartame and discovered this. Wood alcohol is actually a poison. Also the more diet soda you drink, the greater your craving for sugar is. Soda is also very bad for your intestines.

Im giving up soda. LOL Congratulations and hang in there.

Avatar n tn Why do you want to be underweight? If you love sports you most likely have a lot of muscle mas making up your current underweight BMI. Get a fat percentage measurement done and you may find that you should actually worry more about properly nourishing and taking care of your body's needs than losing weight. Don't hurt yourself, and your body will continue to play sports. Underweight is not good. http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/guidelines/obesity/BMI/bmicalc.
Avatar n tn (people are saying maybe the weights are gaining muscle) I lose about 400 calories on the Skiing machine machine (to work both arms and lose weight), it says in about 35 minutes. sometimes I lose 500 in 42 minutes. Why am I not losing any weight? In fact I gained 3 lbs. Do I need to cut out weights completely? Do I need to go to the gym 5 days a week and do more cardio? I ate very few carbs for many years. I have just now started eating a few because evreyone says I should.
Avatar f tn m currently 9 lbs less than my pre-pregnancy weight. Just wondering if anyone else is losing. I think this is because I am not craving the sweets I was before I wad pregnant.
