Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight metabolism


Avatar f tn Gluten free is very controversial; works for some; not for others. Think twice about it, if you aren't celiac or gluten intolerant. There can be repercussions if not intolerant. Whole grains are an important part of a healthy diet.......
1203175 tn?1265553335 Anyone know how to kick start your metabolism so you start losing pounds, other than weight loss medications? Will not use those.
Avatar n tn Does she still have help,therapy? I would advise her to talk to them,they can help her with losing weight healthy and/or the worrying about it.
486919 tn?1280184140 Thank you for responding Barb. I have been monitoring my intake and exercise routine and I use a couple of websites to help with it...this one being one of them. I also do change my workout routine so that I won't get bored...before all this, I was losing weight fine, but since about december, I've notice it has been hard to lose weight. I know it isn't good to do, but i was wondering if I fasted for a day or two, maybe that may work kick starting my metabolism again.
Avatar f tn ve been steadily losing weight over the past few days even though I eat at least 3 meals a day (3 normal portioned meals, or 5 small meals). When I first weighed myself when I found out I was pregnant, I was about 145. Then when I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago I was 140, now I'm 137. Anyone else going through weird things like this? Oh and keep in mind I'm constipated, so I feel like I should weigh more?
Dinosaur Just eliminating soda from your diet will go a long way toward losing weight. You don't have to quit all at once... just start slow and replace one soda/day with a glass of water. Once you're comfortable with that, replace another soda each day with water. Continue until water is your drink of choice. I'm not real fond of plain water, so I keep fresh lemons in the fridge and I drop a lemon wedge/slice into my glass.
Avatar f tn It seems I can go days without eating, without feeling hungry, and without losing weight. It scares me that I may not be getting the proper nutrition, I need. My family also monitors what I eat and is worried, because I eat so little for my size. It is very frustrating, because I struggle so much with my weight. No one outside my family really understands. I plan to make an appointment with an endocrinologist this week.
Avatar f tn How long did it take you to lose the weight you gained? Was it a matter of time? I have never had a problem losing weight until now and I am terrified that it will never come off. What if the meds changed me for good?! Hope to hear from you soon!
Avatar f tn Use this formula from Caroline Apovian, MD, to determine the minimum amount of protein you should eat daily to offset muscle loss—and protect your metabolism—while you lose weight. STEP 1 Estimate your ideal weight. "If you're a woman, start with 100 pounds for the first 5 feet in height, and add 5 pounds for every extra inch," says Dr. Apovian. "For men, it's 106 pounds for 5 feet in height, plus 6 pounds for every additional inch.
Avatar m tn Third week lost 2lbs. I did Jenny Craig 9 years ago and had no issues losing weight in fact I was losing approx 2lbs per week and lost 40lb in 6months. So I can't help but feel discouraged because I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I follow the menu planned out for me during the week by Jenny Craig, and exercise religiously, what do you think is going on, why am i not losing as much as i would like?
Panda It is the same product I used when I reach a weight plateau. It shifted my weight within days. Got no side effect either.
Avatar f tn I also joined My Fitness Pal online and had my calories adjusted to 1280 a day, according to my height, weight, and losing a pound a week. In the last month, I have gained another two pounds. I am beside myself with grief. I never consume all of the calories gained through exercise. I was going to allow myself one cheat day a week, but have only taken two, the entire month, because I was not losing. I am the heaviest I've been in five years, and I am counting every calorie.
Avatar f tn I had a lipo shot at a weight loss clinic. It helps boost your metabolism which helps with burning fat and calories. Its great. I have lost 15 lbs in 2 weeks!
Avatar f tn First if your body is not getting enough foods it can easily go into starvation mode and decide to hold or even gain weight. 1200 calories seems very low, especially given how much you exercise. So maybe you should keep your food around 1300 at minimum? It's hard to know the "sweet" spot that will keep your body healthy while loosing weight, but if you don't find it you will have a really hard time loosing weight.
1669446 tn?1303551937 I have been using for the last 15 years of my life, and when i say using, that includes every drug possible. When I quit on February 20th, i started losing weight rapidly! I went from a size 11 jeans down to a 0! is that normal?
Avatar m tn Pills slow heart, slow heart = slow metabolism. Makes sense, huh? Working out, you will lose weight faster than ever after you are quit. Also extreme long term use of opiates can affect metabolism negatively for good. In other words, you may stay thin for now but later as age slows it anyway, you are doomed.
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?

Avatar n tn You might still be undertreated for your thyroid condition which slows down the metabolism to prevent you from really losing any weight. Even if your blood work looks picture perfect it may not be perfect for you personally (ranges are set because while one person might be perfect at the low end of the scale someone else might be perfect at the high end of the scale so just because you fall in range doesn't mean you're at YOU'RE perfect range).
Avatar f tn I'm 24 years old. I'm 5'9" and I weight 103 lbs. I have a very high metabolism and have always had a problem gaining weight. However, I've been losing weight lately. I'm trying to be on a better diet and eating lots of protein and calories to try and gain some weight. Amy suggestions on good foods, etc for me to be eating? Or any other advice?
Avatar f tn All I ever read is the key to weight loss is your metabolism. How do I increase it without a thyroid? It is very frustrating!
Avatar f tn I'm 13 weeks pregnant and instead of gaining weight, I'm losing weight I haven't had morning sicknes. Should I be consider.
Avatar f tn You need to build lean muscle and increase your metabolism to help your body start losing weight. If not, your body may think not start to think that you are trying to shed the fat and, instead, keep storing the fat (going into survival mode). How long have you been on the diet and exercising? I am 6'1" and am currently 37yrs old. When I was 22, I weighed 280lbs.
