Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight running swimming


Avatar n tn Hi there. Well, congrats on joining the army! That's life changing. I really don't have much to offer for fast weight loss because I have found that the methods to do that are generally not the healthiest. So, I'd focus on clean eating and cardio/strength combination. And just do a lot of it. You'll be running a lot, so I'd do some long runs.
Avatar f tn 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 I have been doing weight watchers for over eight months and I have hit a pleateu, so I started running for 30-45 minutes 5 days a week and instead of losing weight I started gaining weight. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Ok thank you ladies I just had well firm legs not no more I would do lots if squats and running and still losing weight lost 28 soo far it's been 2 weeks since I had mine
2082101 tn?1419965061 Hello there, Firstly I will advise you to eat the right types of foods .All the strength training and running or swimming will not help you manage your shape if you don’t eat the right food. Consider your portion sizes and avoid eating too much food. Maintain a healthy balanced diet. Include aerobic exercises such as running, swimming, cycling, tennis into your week which increases your energy expenditure and makes managing your shape easier.
Avatar f tn Idk your not supposed to lose weight in pregnancy. I mean sOme ppl get really sick and help it but you really shouldn't lose just to lose. You should talk to your doctor about it.
Avatar f tn Losing weight quickly is never good and causes yo yo effects. Regardless to one of the comments earlier swimming is the number 1 best over all total body work out. Have you ever seen a fat swimmer??? No. As for losing 5 lbs in one week that is probably mostly water weight and not actual fat loss. You need to find your calorie maintenance number and shoot to be calorie deficient by no more that 500 to get the body to lose weight healthily.
768251 tn?1256734583 Go for cardio for a period of 45 minutes to 60 minutes regularly as in jogging, running, skipping, swimming, at least 6 times a week and with time you will cut down your weight. Do not worry if you have to lose the extra weight in an year but go in a continuous progressive way for a healthy life ahead. Take care!
Avatar f tn Not everyone has a safe place they can go running or ride a real bike or access to some place they can go swimming, without joining a gym - I happen to be one of those. I'm all for a person doing whatever exercise they can, whether it be inside on the Wii and exercise bike, going to the gym or running outside, swimming, etc. The simple fact that peadot is moving is a step in the right direction. The idea is to make healthy lifestyle changes that one can live with.
Avatar f tn Regular cardio for 1 hr like walking, running, skipping, jogging, treadmill, cross trainer, elliptical or swimming is strongly suggested for you for the next 1 year till you achieve your desired BMI. Take care!
Avatar f tn i do an intense boxing work out twicw a week, and run about three miles. im not losing weight!! im very upset that im back to my original weight. does anyone have any ideas how to help me?
5623242 tn?1371127079 It may be a bit difficult to lose weight with diabetes but not impossible. If you are aiming at losing weight, it is important to calculate your current BMI and the target BMI. The target BMI should be in a healthy range. The key is to follow a healthy diet plan with a balanced amount of physical activity.
Avatar f tn For losing weight the most effective way is to sprint for about 30seconds then jog for 30seconds and keep this going for about half an hour
Avatar f tn I gained a ton of weight with my first pregnancy, lost a little, gained it back during my second pregnancy and then lost all of it in about a year. (I'm on my third pregnancy now and have only gained about ten pounds.) when I lost all of the weight after my second pregnancy I made a very serious effort to eat as clean as possible, (slipping here and there lol) breastfeed/pump whenever I could, drink a ton of water and get out and move around.
Avatar m tn If you are aiming at losing weight, it is important to calculate your current BMI and the target BMI. The target BMI should be in a healthy range. Aside indulging in moderate amounts of physical exercise it is also essential to maintain a healthy diet plan. A healthy diet should consist of adequate amounts of calories with carbohydrates, proteins, fat and plenty of fruits and vegetables to supply vitamins and minerals. Skipping any of the food components is not considered healthy.
Avatar f tn Worry about losing the weight after.
Avatar f tn I also decided to start swimming *yikes!* and rediscovered a love of swimming! It was scary to think of me in a bathing suit (and wearing it in public!!) but I got over it (no one sees you in the pool anyway). I'm looking forward to each new week of my new life! I've had ups and downs with the scale over the last six months but have realized it works if you work it!
Avatar f tn Have you thought of keeping a food journal, if even for a couple of weeks, to make sure your getting enough calories and the right kinds of foods? You could also measure yourself to see if your losing inches instead of weight. Don't forget even if you know what your doing your body sometimes takes a little longer to figure it out. Don't stop what your doing.

Avatar n tn I used to rely on exercising alot - - skiiing, mountain climibing, running, swimming, paddle ball and exercise classes all worked. Then, I got injured and grew fibroids that crippled me until surgery and got injured again and finally I was okay and got run over. BUT, my physical therapist helped me find safe and adaptive gym equipment that I could simulate running on and I eventually lost 30 pounds and kept it off.
1359792 tn?1277488784 what can i do to lose weight healthily? and is my skipping a meal every day the reason i gain weight so easily?
Avatar n tn Dear lyn01, I am a volunteer and not a physician and can only tell you my own personal experience. It would be helpful to know what your bs or A1C are running. I know that your metabolism may have something to do with this. You stated that you are eating well and excercising. I have been researching this issue and have not found any different studies between men and women losing weight with type 1. You didn't say if you are lifting weights or doing strength training.
Avatar f tn t gained that much weight so far with this pregnancy, but I was over weight before this pregnancy (this is baby #4) and have a tendacy to have trouble losing weight or even gaining a little after the pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Yeah i was running 5 times a week before i was pregnant and then around 4 weeks i started getting really tired and the working out just slowly stopped lol. Im sick now, but i feel good enough to get my butt back to the gym! I think maybe 4 miles a week and some swimming?? lol! I just need to get back to being active and maybe then i wont feel so sluggish all the time. Thank You Ladies!
