Losing weight in natural ways

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in natural ways


Avatar f tn ve calculated your needs, you will need to subtract calories in order to lose weight. A pound is 3500 calories, so if you want to lose a pound a week, you would need to eliminate that many calories/week. That would average out to 500 calories/day (500 calories/day X 7 days/week = 3500). You can do this a couple of ways.
Avatar m tn When I was going to college, I took a workout class that was actually ROTCs pt class. The group encouragement was amazing!! Try looking into group classes offered by your gym or get a friend with similar goals. The buddy system is such a motivatior. Good luck!

4193337 tn?1355698372 t stopped eating or anything but I do force myself to drink lots of water and am back to eating tons of fruit. Is this safe that I am losing weight?

Avatar f tn So my dr told me that I am losing weight today at my appointment. I know its natural in the first trimester but my dr is concerned and says I need to start gaining. Problem is I am never hungry. I eat a small meal at lunch time and feel completely stuffed the rest of the day/night. Anyone have any suggestions?? I'm already high risk, I don't want anything else to happen too!
Avatar n tn I would try and get 32 ounces from water and the rest from everywhere else. Also, though this is the natural weight loss forum, I might look into taking 5 htp (natural appetite suppressant/mood booster) along with a B vitamin supplement. If you try and lose weight too quickly, you usually just shut down you metabolism and after initial weight loss, you will start gaining. You need to find ways to relieve your stress and try and avoid being obsessive/compulsive about losing weight.
Avatar f tn Could I be infertile? I was heavy and have been losing weight (diet and gym not unhealthy ways *smile*) could that be a factor? I would love to have a baby and i hope I don't have fertility issues. No woman in my family has any fertility problems.

Avatar m tn I read of so many natural ways to help reduce or cure heartburn and acid reflux. I'd like to hear from people who did find a natural help. What specifically worked from you? Did excersize help, did losing weight help? What dietary changes made the biggest impact.
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?
1519805 tn?1291058650 As you mature, it will be more and more difficult to lose weight. However, large amounts of weight gain--with no change in diet or activity--usually hints at a medical condition. So make sure you rule those out first. First of all, there's nothing easy or quick about losing weight. I'm so frustrated with commercials and billboards that promise fast results. A fat camp means you'll lose weight while at camp, but then what happens when you get home?
Avatar n tn If you've doing these things already for awhile, then no, it won't suddenly start making you lose weight. If you just started doing this, then it might. If you were completely sedentary your whole life and you're young, starting any exercise program and eating better should start showing some results quickly.
Avatar f tn Resting is a great idea, it may not induce a none natural labor but in case labor is near, your body is rested and ready. There are other hear say methods you may hear but the fact of the situation is....your body will go into labor when it's ready. Why not let your baby's lungs strengthen some more, plus gain a little more weight, right!? That's natural!! Be patient!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn It's best to aim for around 2lbs per week. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn As far as exercise, get some weights and do some weight training, or do some push-ups. Cardio is not necessary for losing weight. In fact, I believe that running too much can be bad for you. That's a whole other topic of conversation. Stick to high-intensity workouts for shorter periods & you'll be healthier. Also, remember that it's not what you do at the gym that makes you look/feel great, it's what you do at home in the kitchen that counts.

1915587 tn?1330311933 when i was on PCOS i was told to loose weight from 85kg to atleast 61kg. i lost weight in one month as i was desperate to have baby. i lost about 20 kg.. however long term plans are much better. short plans cause problems later as i started loosing my vitamins and end up with back pains etc. also caused alot of bowel movement problems.
Avatar f tn Listen there is no easy magic solution to losing weight. When going to the gym do high reps low weight and do the workouts fast without any breaks Lower your carb intake and caloric intake Increase the amount of protein you take in and go running often. There's a difference between training hard and over training your body is made in the kitchen . Lastly a rolles Royce takes 6 months to make and a Toyota takes 13 hours.
Avatar n tn Fibro is usually treated both with natural ways and possible medication like Lyrica, Neurontin, Savella, or Cymbalta. Sometimes they will prescribe a muscle relaxer if needed for muscle spasms. But most important is daily's crucial to stay moving. The more people lay around or sleep the worse their symptoms. Eating well, maintaining a healthy weight, not smoking, limit sugars, salts, simple carbs...
Avatar n tn Dieting and losing weight are not recommended during pregnancy. Some safe ways to ensure that you don't gain an excessive amount are to exercise daily drink lots of fluids and stick to healthy filling foods. I eat a lot of oatmeal it keeps me full and regular. I'm only 20 weeks and I've gained 20 pounds.
Avatar f tn In my opinion diet tablets are not a healthy way to lose weight and they can throw your body out of its natural way of working. That you have stopped taking them is great, maybe it will take a while for your body to get back to normal now. The best way to loose weight and keep it off is with a good healthy diet, plenty of fruit and veg and 30 mins exercise a day. Walking is one of the best ways to loose weight and it makes you feel better too. Be patient and work at it and it will happen.
