Avatar m tn To be brief: broke my foot (Jones Fracture) on 3/12 was in a cast NWB from 3/17 through 6/18 then due to having numerous issues with the cast was put in a boot for the last few weeks.

Avatar f tn My average healthy weight is 60kg and I'm 161cm tall, now I'm 75kg which is overweight. I just finished the 3rd month yesterday. Is there a way to lose weight without hurting the baby?

Avatar n tn t exert their heart much - the diet lacks recommendation for exercise while offering the expectation of losing 3/4 lb. per day. I need to lose weight badly to make transfers and general life activities easier. I would consider including meat in my diet again (6 year moral-reason vegetarian) if this diet is authentic. If all is accurate and genuine, would it be adviseable for me to begin this diet?
Avatar f tn Yes it's normal to lose weight while pregnant. I lost weight the first trimester and my doctor didn't worry as long as baby is growing. Just eat healthy and stay active! !

My week hasn't been bad, even though I'm still holding steady on the weight. There have been some more issues with my 93 yr old Auntie, whom some of you are familiar with by now.
Avatar f tn Yes it's normal especially if ur on ur last month.. baby is swollowing the amniotic fluid. That's where the lost in weight comes from. We don't produce as much to replace it after a while cuz baby is getting ready for delivery.
Avatar f tn Diet aids such as Releana are not the best way to lose weight. While you might lose a considerable amount of weight on it, which might be nice, the chances of gaining it all back, once you go off the med are extremely high. I can't think of anyone I've ever known, who would stick to such a "diet" for any length of time.
