Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight quickly obese


Avatar n tn Most of the weight you would lose would be water weight anyway, and it would come back quickly. I recently consulted with a weight loss doctor who prescribed a sensible diet (moderately low carb) and the medication Adipex. That combination was magic for me. The diet resulted in rapid weight loss, and the prescribed medication made it easier for me to follow the diet. I did have to follow up often with my physician, but the results are worth it!

Business woman2 Losing weight that quickly is not safe and phentermine is not a long term solution. Both my daughter and her husband were on the phentermine for a while; they both lost fabulously, but within a month of going off it, they both gained back everything they'd lost, plus some. Both are now obese, where they weren't before; just overweight.

6905554 tn?1386942249 This will then give you information whether your weight to your height is fine, under or overweight, obese or morbidly obese. If you are overweight, the thing is to eat healthily and losing 1-2 pounds a week is considered a safe and steady way to lose. Best wishes. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn First, if you're at all muscular, you're not all that overweight. If you're not muscular, you don't need to lose a ton of weight. Calories aren't key to losing weight -- how quickly and efficiently you metabolize your food into sugar and how well you digest your nutrients is far more important.
Avatar m tn I can also feel nodule underneath the skin (not sure if in fat of facia) and if these are pressed, the pain is tremendous, often radiating all over. I also have difficulty losing weight - I know every obese person says this, and I don't say I can't lose weight at all, but I do it much more slowly than others, whether the diet is Weight Watchers assorted type of Atkins low carb and no matter how much I exercise. Is it normal for fatty tissue to be painful?
Avatar f tn This article is from a well known hospital and they state that losing weight when obese does indeed reverse some of the cardiovascular issues someone may have due to obesity. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/losing_weight_sooner_rather_than_later_gives_the_best_chance_of_reversing_heart_damage_from_obesity_according_to_study earlier is better 9as in the younger you are) or the sooner the better. Yes, some damage could remain but this gives someone the best chance.
1931709 tn?1335833095 I am 21w5d and have not gained any weight. I eat and take my prenatals every day, but still no gain. My doc said the baby is growing and she is measuring right on for how far along I am. I was considered obese before I was pregnant (178lbs).... Do you think its bad that I haven't gained anything? This is my 4th pregnancy, and I gained with all the first 3.
29837 tn?1414534648 I saw the primary a week ago regarding this problem. His take, as well as mine, is the result of stopping the dreadful pain medication Oxycodone abruptly, which was prescribed for me after my spinal surgery. As my ideal weight is 185, I now am 173. However, that's one pound more than a week ago. What this means, is that I'm not losing anymore weight, but have gained one pound. This tell me it's a gradual recovery from the withdrawal I'm going through. I know losing 15 lbs.
Avatar f tn 140-160 pounds is overweight, 170-220 is obese and anything beyond that is morbidly/extreme obese.

Avatar f tn works best for us right now,but im losing weight,so later we might try different ways,for me being with a large woman more depends on how she takes care of her self,and how she carries her self.
Avatar n tn re not the most important tool for choosing a diet -- some high calorie foods are very good for losing weight, some low calorie foods are bad for losing weight. The real issue is how you metabolize and digest your food, and that will differ by the person.
Avatar f tn I've lost loads of weight since I became pregnant. I am not purposely losing weight (if you're wondering) I have been trying to gain weight but im just not gaining. My pre-pregnant weight was 243 and now I am at 213...My stomach isn't losing weight its growing with the baby, but I'm losing weight ever where else. Is this normal or even safe. I don't go to the dr until Jan 28 because medicaid finally came through and all. I am really worried about the baby.
Avatar f tn I went thru this same problem. I had to loose a good amount of weight and my periods have been coming some what regular. I did get on some hormonal pills to help with the irregular periods and to help stimulate ovulation, bc I wasn't ovulating like I was supposed too. My dr told me about some medicine, Fertibilla - Concieve Easy and I've been on that for about 2 weeks. Working great so far. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Thank you for the reply, I've not actually had any morning sickness. But I can't wait to feel my bubba :3 Hopefully i will lose a little weight. If not will strata going swimming once bubba is here.
Avatar m tn Is it possible for someone young (mid to high 20s) to be obese, like 3-400 pounds or more, and not have clogged arteries? Can such a person lose the weight, getting down into the mid to high 100s within a couple years, without existing heart disease after echos, x rays, stress tests etc, and live a long and healthy life (70s, 80s or higher) if it was maintained and even further improved? And continued to exercise, take vitamins, eat healthy, take care of themselves etc?
Avatar m tn I would say that it may be harder for her to become pregnant being obese and losing a little weight may increase her odds of conceiving. This is going to need to be a lifestyle change and not just temporary. You should also do the healthy eating with her (even if you are not obese yourself) that way it encourages her to eat that way and also lets her know your behind her 100%. It also, like I said before, needs to be a lifestyle change so that is why you should probably do it as well.
Avatar m tn Genetics as said also plays a role along with family history. Your age and race also play a part. Losing some weight, exercising (if you are cleared to do so by your doctor), managing diet will help.
Avatar f tn Obesity aggravates the COPD further. Blood oxygen levels are not a botheration at this time but you should concentrate on losing some weight. Weight reduction, if you are overweight or obese, is the optimal health strategy for patients who suffer from COPD. This can be done through a combination of diet, an increase in physical activity and sometimes medication. Weight reduction can help reduce dyspnea, increase exercise tolerance and improve your quality of life.
Avatar f tn Basically, weak or damaged valves lead to varicose veins. Being obese is a risk factor and losing weight would likely help a multitude of things in your life. That's never easy but something that would be very beneficial to work on. Sitting for prolonged periods of time also contribute to varicose veins. You are a young man and this should be a priority for your health.
