Avatar n tn run at 6mph for 2 minutes then run at 3mph or rest for 2 minutes) will be more effective in losing weight than if I ran or walked at a steady pace.Is there any truth to this>?
797971 tn?1238008431 I have a ifit treadmill at home. A few weights for your hands, and that's about it. Dh & I came up with a schedule for exercise last night. I wanted to run them by you so you could see what you all thought. Push ups will be a lower amount because I can't really hold my weight up good yet. I just have to pace myself. Eventually the push ups will be every other week because I don't want too much muscle on my arms. My Dh bought me some perfect pushups to help me with them at first.
Avatar f tn I am currently eating between 1500 to 2000 calories a day (maybe a little less) and I am doing around 90 minutes cardio six times a week (I sometimes do up to 2 hours per day), cross trainer, walking uphill on treadmill, spinning, circuit training or step aerobics. I have tried eating more, eating less, exercising more, exercising less but nothing I do seems to be working. I really don’t know what else to try. I would be grateful of any suggestions.
Avatar m tn I am 25 years old I am 6ft1in., but 1 weigh 285lbs. I have recently started doing a brisk walk on the treadmill every other day on the treadmill for 45min and doing some free weights. my main concern is dropping some pounds. I have a question about swimming. Is swimming good for weight lose? doing laps?
Avatar f tn I would suggest you to wear proper footwear and also if possible do some stationary cycling or run on the treadmill at lower speeds. Do not do weight bearing for couple of days and watch your diet during the time you are not exercising. Discuss with your orthopedician and start in a progressive way as soon as you are given the go ahead. Take care!
Avatar f tn ve been working together for about a month now. He weight trains me once a week and then I may do it on my own once a week. I also do cardio (treadmill mostly) 4 times a week. I dont drink sodas or coffee any more. I don't eat fast food any more (which I used to do 5 to 6 days a wk). I drink lots of water 8-12 glasses a day. I've only lost 2 lbs in a month and a half. What am I doing wrong? What should I change?

Avatar n tn Although I am still extremely depressed, I can now get out of bed and I can even jump on the treadmill. I started a weight watchers diet on my own, and I am hoping that losing weight will help me feel better. The problem is the weight is not coming off. Is this a residual effect of the medication?
Avatar f tn It is possible to lose a pound a day. You should consume between 800 and 1,200 calories a day depending on your weight and how much you exercise. Cut out sugar, fat, salt, and most carbohydrates. Vegetables and proteins fill you up quickly and have very few calories. You will need to burn 3,500 more calories than you consume in a day. Do some calorie-burning aerobic activities. Drink enough water.
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.
Brachiosaurus I need your tips and techniques for coping with a plateau. I was steadily losing 2.8 lbs/week for the last month but now my losing has come to a standstill. I am frustrated and disheartened but don't want to give up. What things have you tried to get the scale unstuck? Many thanks!
Avatar f tn i have been on hcg now for 9 days and i have been losing weight steadly up until my 6 th day my weight has stayed exactly the same, i have stuck to the diet like prescribed. i just didnt think i would be reaching a plateau this early on the plan. i plan on going an apple day tommorow if i dont lose any weight. i just wanted to know if this is normal. Am also exercising on the treadmill for 30 mins each day.
Avatar n tn When focusing on weight loss instead of measuring on a scale try measuring yourself with a tape measure and see the inches come off. It is common the inches go first before the weight drops off. Next I would look at your diet, how many meals a day? Portion size? % of fat, carbs, protein consuming in a day approx? Do you et late at night? Are you eating to many calories for your body? How much sodium are you taking in as that can cause you to retain water?
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.
Avatar f tn I have recently starting jogging Monday, Wednesday, Friday on a treadmill at a gym, after not working out for about periord of about 6 months. I have noticed that I have round bruises on the front of my knees. Is this normal? Could it be from strain or the impact of the jogging on the treadmill. In the last 6 months i have gained 25 pounds, so I am much heavier than I was the last time I jogged.
Avatar n tn So, if I continue to do that and walk for about an hour or more a day on a treadmill or outside once the weather cools down, how long do you think it would take for me to get down to about 165-175 lbs. I know people lose weight at different rates, but just for a bit of a benchmark, my dad used this app for about a month (don't know why he quit) without any exercise and he lost 10 lbs. Thanks for your help!
Avatar f tn You have to excersice different parts of your body focus ob exercise s that only help your thighs.
Avatar f tn Try taking a work out rest day once a week, and let yourself have a cheat meal once a week, too, if you do not binge. As long as you are losing the weight the healthy way, you will get the results you want, without gaining it back. Don't give up! You can do it!
Avatar f tn Losing weight does have a lot to do with diet, but I've always found that exercise works best for me. Walking is really good, but you have to keep changing things up, so your body doesn't get used to the same thing. During the winter, I do about 3-6 miles/day because I have a walking partner and we can get out, but during the summer, I'm more likely to hit the treadmill because hubby doesn't like me walking alone and it's really too hot to do a lot outside.
Avatar m tn I'd try a different treadmill. Heart rate monitors on machines are often way off base. Also, Kenkeith gives good advice about other factors... metabolic changes affect the heart. Are you diatbetic? Losing 70 pounds rapidly has to have given your basal metabolism a wedgie, it's going to take a while to stabalize.
Avatar m tn 4 speed for 60min, that hurts my knees! They are so sore and tight. Going on the eliptical isnt a problem. Its the treadmill stuff that *****. What other things on the treadmill i can do?
Avatar n tn Exercise is a way of life that brings your body to good health while losing weight or mantaining weight. 1-2 lbs is a reasonable weight loss goal per week not much more. Remember 1 lbs of fat is 3500 calories so you will have to burn that much calories in order to lose just 1 lb of fat. Be patient is it happens slowly.
Avatar n tn I have been over weight most of my life. Over the last 7 years I have been on a roller coaster, losing up to 15 lbs and then gaining that back within a year time frame. Plus, I have not been able to lose more then 15 lbs. For the last 6 weeks, I have been working with a personal trainer 2x a week, I walk 1.75 miles twice a week during my lunch and every day I walk just over a 1/2 mile to and from the train in order to go to work. Just recently I added in another day of jogging 1.
