Avatar m tn Honestly stop trying to lose weight. You are in a healthy weight range now. But you should consider eating a little more and drinking more water.
Avatar n tn The best weight loss diet I had to start for my new lifestyle healthy change. I know fresh is better but frozen is just as good and more convenient...
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.
Avatar n tn Personally I lost a lot of weight by becoming vegan. I was 143lbs 5"1 and my lowest from there was 118lbs from 5"1. Since I haven't exercised lately I'm back at about 125.5lbs but still I'm losing again.
Avatar n tn Not a pregnant female (or any other kind) but the mere fact you eat a vegan diet has nothing to do with whether you're eating a healthy diet or one suited to losing weight. You also say you work out, but don't say how much, so it might not have been enough for you to speed up your metabolism. Some people are not suited to vegan or vegetarian diets, and some are -- you might be one of them and you might not be, but most vegans eat according to ideology, not health.
Avatar f tn My doctor recently changed my long acting insulin from lantus 90 units at night, to toujeo 90 units. Since taking toujeo I have gained 8 pound in 3 weeks. I'm so not happy. Lantus I didn't have that problem. I just had hip surgery so I can't move around as much. The doctor is like your making excuses about gaining weight. I follow a vegan vegetarian meal plan I'm not making excuses. I haven't gained weight in two years. I've been losing. She is pissing me off.
Avatar f tn Nor does it necessarily have anything to do with weight loss. A vegan eats as much as they want, so you apparently are still anorexic to an extent if you eat very little. A vegan actually needs to eat a lot more carefully, as getting enough protein can be hard and if you exercise a lot you need more protein but still a balanced diet, which means when we exercise more we actually need more food, not less. And a vegan can eat horribly if they want.
Avatar f tn I am thinking the goal is to get my body into an alkaline state or close to one... and just that alone will help me lose weight... and losing weight is said to help me be more fertile and get pregnant easier... If I can go RAW, lose weight and then maintain it... better for the baby and my body!!! Again thanks for your input!!!
1314425 tn?1273909880 My point is that going vegan is a lifestyle choice which is based more on personal beliefs and convictions than losing weight and being healthy. You might not get the results you want and if you don't do it properly you can harm yourself. You REALLY should talk it over with your doctor before going into it as he/she can tell you more about what you need to do to make sure you're taking in all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Gallstones back in November of 2014 and my gallbladder was removed that Black Friday. I had already lost 25lbs during the time I was struggling with the stones and had visited the ER 6 times before they found what was wrong. After the removal I had your typical loss of about 5lbs I was at 160lbs at that point and time. Now almost two years later I am still struggling to keep weight on. I weigh a shocking 118lbs right now and I'm still losing about 2-4lbs a week.
Avatar m tn and nothing to concern myself over. Still, this is when I decided to go vegan, which worked great until I stopped losing weight, no matter what I did. (As a side note, I used to have some chest pain when running. I was told it might be heartburn, but it went away when I went vegan) I love being a vegan. I usually feel pretty great eating like this (unless I'm eating all grains, then I just feel all heartburny).
Tbd Well, unless you take drastic lifestyle steps to change the dynamics that led you to being on the medication in the first place, it is what it is. This includes changing your diet, losing and maintaining an ideal weight and exercise. Are you doing those things? More power to you if you are! Unfortunately, that is where a lot of people fail in controlling diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes is dangerous so you will want to control is 'somehow'.
6231275 tn?1379901818 You can take care of your body as a vegetarian/vegan; however, you need to be vigilant in eating the combination foods and eating enough food daily so your body gets the protein, and nutrients it needs. As a vegetarian you should be getting all your vitamins and minerals from the foods you ate except Vitamin B12 and maybe Calcium (if you have a history of bone disease in your family).
Avatar m tn I'm an incarcerated 58 yr old white male and long-time vegetarian. For several months now, I've had periodic low-grade but constant pain in my left side around just under my rib cage area. I don't know of any organ there, but I'm drinking about 2 liters of water daily because drinking a high volume of water seems to be the only thing that helps me lessen the pain.
Avatar n tn Could anyone advise me which foods to consume more of and which to limit in order to receive maximum results through a vegan lifestyle?
Tbd Hi, depending how long you have had diabetes, and your overall condition, losing weight and changing your diet to a strict low carb diet / keto diet, could possibly put your diabetes into remission or at worst make it very much easier to manage. The principle of low carb diet is restricting carbs, particularly all grains, sugars, starchy veges and sweet fruits, and eating a diet that focusses more on protein, low carb plant foods (veges and non-sweet fruits), some nuts, and healthy fats.
Avatar f tn I recommend going vegan! I recommend watching some movies especially Vegucated. And reading the book called veganist. On a vegan diet all your weight will fall off an you won't have to restrict calories or count calories. There are tons of delicious recipes. I know going vegan can seem like a religion or alien like. Most think it's sticks and leaves. But going vegan is such an adventure. You try so many new foods and they're so good.
Avatar n tn I'm a type II diabetic, diagnosed in 2001. I have been on victoza since around November of 2011. I wasn't considered overweight (147 and 5'7" tall). I have lost nearly 23 pounds and can't stop losing, it seems. My lack of appetite is real concerning to me as well as the other side effects and the effects on my liver and kidneys. I would love to get off this drug for sure.
Avatar n tn This might be a failed experiment and not the end of your search for a diet that suits you. As for losing weight, it is a long, slow process when it works -- quick weight loss usually is temporary, whereas loss from a permanent change in lifestyle takes time but lasts. I have no idea what's going on, but have you had your thyroid checked? I'm sure you have, but it sounds a lot more like that than fibromyalgia, at least from the little you've detailed here.
1985196 tn?1402190098 I go from between 85kg - 90kg but would like 78-82kg . Should i go on Vegan lifestyle ?, will this help loose some weight with 10-20 km walking in 1 week . ?
Avatar n tn Another thing that makes me think it could be hormone related is that about a year and a half ago I went vegan. While I was vegan I had no constipation or PVC's. I suffer from severe constipation. Our diary and meat are full of hormones. The only reason I started eating dairy again is because I was losing a lot of hair. I wasn't supplementing correctly. I am going try going vegan again. I will keep you updated on how it turns out.
Avatar f tn I had my thyroid removed in January 2007 due to a multigoiter and since I have had it removed I have been gaining weight despite dieting and exercising. I have never been this weight in my life. I usually weigh 160. I am 5'8" and am solidly built. I did a bodybuilding show in 1999 and now I currently weigh 200. I don't know what to do. My doctor isn't helping at all-seems he doesn't know what to tell me. If anyone can help I would be indebted to you for life!!
