Losing weight in upper body

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in upper body


Avatar m tn Exercising the upper extremities is just as effective as exercising the lower extremities for fat loss. The myth of losing weight in certain areas based on selection is a common misconception. Fat loss is eliminated in the reverse order of the locations it was gained. Moderate to low level exercise for long durations such as an upper body ergometer (UBE) is similar to a bicycle for your arms will help to induce cardiovascular exercise similar to walking and biking.
Avatar n tn i am a mail 74 years old sudenly about 2 months ago started to lose weight i have no apetite to eat even the food i use to like it .
Avatar f tn What bothers me is my upper arms and belly fat. Any suggestions on how to lose weight in those two areas?
Avatar m tn I also get pains in my upper abdomin right underneath the middle of my chest. ANd at certain times i have these panick attacks that leave me thinking im having a heart attack and that my heart is stoping. On top of all this right when the corn dog insident happened i weighed 220 pounds i now weigh 181 pounds. At first when i noticed my weight loss i just assumed it was because i was watching what i ate due to the insident.
Avatar m tn as for me, i started working out in the mornings before breakfast instead of in the evenings like i used to do and i can definitely tell that my appetite has decreased significantlyand i have more energy during the day. hope this helps!
Avatar f tn Your weight can fluctuate in the beginning. I wouldn't worry about it babies are very resilient. They get nourished first and then you so they take what they need from your body that's why its important to take a prenatal vitamin not so much for the baby but for your body to cope with any nutritional deficiency. And gaining weight in the beginning isn't crucial.
Avatar f tn Adding strength training movements will help your muscles be not only strong an flexible but also get rid of the fat in different parts of your body as long as you are training in a really good rate of intensity. I wrote a whole book about it and you can google in medhelp some of my movements here http://www.oprah.
Avatar m tn I have been experience chronic right upper quadrant pain for 1 1/2 years. It all started after my gallbladder was removed because of chronic inflammation. 4 months ago I was a size 8-10 and weight 158 pounds, now I'm 142 pounds and wear size 2-4. In total I have lost less than 20 pounds but have gone down over 4 dress sizes. It seems like I'm loosing a lot of body fat but not weight. I have had blood work, ct scans, and upper gi and everything has come back normal.
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 m tn Rowing Machines are good for those who desire a whole body workout, but have limited space. Rowing uses both the upper and lower body for aerobic exercise. Resistance equipment is a good compliment to any home aerobic fitness equipment. The two most widely recognized kinds of weight equipment are home gyms or multi-stations and free weights. Free weights are reasonably prices and require little space.
Avatar f tn I am 30 weeks and I already having trouble with gaining weight but now I think I'm losing it again. Is that normal in 3rd trimester?
4715985 tn?1371582997 Im just wondering if there would be a reason why i would lose weight in only a week? Im so scared that something bad will happen, is this normal?
Avatar f tn Forgot to mention - you can't "spot reduce"; losing weight in general will get rid of the love handles.
Avatar f tn t have hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, etc, as these can all make losing weight more difficult, as well as causing aches/pains by themselves. I totally agree that you need to opt for low impact exercise, such as swimming, water aerobics, yoga, etc. Once you start losing some weight, you should see some of the pains diminish.
Avatar n tn This is the fastest way to lose fat and build muscle in the body. Peak 8 actually stimulates the growth hormone in the body. I encourage you to visit Dr Mercola’s site to learn more about Peak 8 fitness because I personally feel that it is one of the best ways to exercise, especially considering the speed at which you can lose fat and build muscle. I highly recommend you read this article and watch the videos on the page.
Avatar f tn Im 30 an for the last six months I havent had an appetite and i have not been able to eat enough calories but ive been losing a lot of body fat but my weight is the same can I die from losing too much body fat
Avatar n tn This condition is called meralgia paresthetica and is often due to weight gain or wearing tight clothes and belts. Losing some weight or wearing loose clothes and belts often helps relieve the pain/numbness/tingling. Please discuss this with a doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar f tn t know where to post this) I am a plus size 22 year old female who is currently losing weight, and I have began to get this what start out like zits on my upper thighs mostly inner and upper legs and on my stomach. Which I pop (of course) I know I shouldn't and I try not to but they look horrible when their inflammed. But they are a dark purple under the whit head. Like a blood blister I sometimes get them on my vagina from shaving also but I do not shave my stomach or my upper legs.
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!
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.
Avatar f tn I am an 18 year old female and have excess body and facial hair. I have hair in my toes, my lower back, my stomach, my arms and fingers, my butt, my upper lip and chin hair grow very fast, and even in my breasts. My family is not hairy and my mom and sister barely have any body or facial hair. My period is normal, but I did grow very fast and stopped growing at a young age. I do not know what I have but I want to know. Thanks.
Avatar n tn You can't really "spot reduce", but general exercise and losing weight from the entire body will definitely help. Walking is good for both the abs and the legs, actually the entire body!! I've always had rather thick thighs also and I believe that walking does about as good as anything.
Avatar m tn I was wondering if any of the prescriptions I take, may be making it harder for me to lose weight? In fact i've gained about 45lbs since last year. This year some of my prescriptions have changed. I am now taking 60 mg of Paxil last year it was 40 mg. I am taking lisinopril and diclofenac and 50 more mg of atenolol. I believe I am getting about the same amount of exersise as I was last year if not more. Thank you.
