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 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.

1066531 tn?1254969334 I’ve been working out for many years now, and i want to know how I can tone my body better without losing a large portion of weight, mostly my chest and midsection? I’m 6ft 198lbs I would like to be around 195 but in much better “shape”. My diet ***** and i’m trying to work on it, but I work out at the gym 2-3 times a week lifting weights and running. I dont run a whole bunch though, would that help my problem or will that just make me lose wieght?
Avatar f tn I play basketball for atleast an hour a day, along with an hour of weight lifting and a twenty minute cardio session after that (normally on a bike). I quit drinking soda and other drinks and now only drink water, fat free milk, and an occasional gatorade. I eat less then I use too with minimal snacks. I have not lost any weight in a month. WHat am I doing wrong?
Avatar f tn Is it okay to lose weight and workout while pregnant? The only thing I like is to workout on the elliptical. Is safe?
Avatar m tn Walk 5 miles every week and work out at the gym with weights. The problem is that I am not losing any weight in the last two weeks. I am keeping my calorie intake around 1200 to 1500 calories daily. I understand that I may be putting on muscle but I am also getting discouraged with not losing weight. When can I expect to see the pounds start to drop off?
Avatar f tn u really shouldn't try to lose weight while pregnant. but if u get bad morning sickness u may not have a choice. try to keep ur weight the same or if it bugs u talk to ur doc. good luck dear!
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? Cuz it's not healthy for me to stay in this weight while I'll gain 12kg more while pregnancy. Nothing hard or hurtful, walking is hard here since I'm in saudi Arabia and the heat reach 40c. I'm looking for healthy diet that won't hurt the baby if I do it.
Avatar f tn Building muscle mass can lead to weight gain. Once you have reached a plateau level weight loss seems to be difficult. Take care of your diet. Eating too often or eating portions that are too large will also cause weight gain. Drink plenty of water and continue with your exercises. Avoid the intake of alcohol and smoking. Balanced eating is the only sustainable way to achieve long-term healthy weight loss. I hope you find this useful. Do write to us again with more queries.
Avatar m tn Hi I have been working out for about 7 months...but the last 6 weeks of 2013 I started doing 40 45 mins cardio along with lifting weights. I could see a huge change in my legs and lower belly. I then went on vacation for 10 days. Went back to the gym, started the same workout I had done at the end of the year. Usually my chest area gets smaller...when I drop a few lbs. I guess that is how I tell if I'm losing weight.
1339808 tn?1276321180 you should do more cardio than weight lifting,some people get confused because they are working out but not losing weight but in your case you are lifting weights also which is adding muscle weight to you,if you want to really lose you will have to increase the cardio and lower the weight your lifting and do more reps
Avatar m tn I have started a complete lifestyle changing initiative. I am currently 1 1/2 months into my new diet and exercise regiment. I weigh about 287lbs (my goal is approximately 215lbs mostly muscle) at the moment after losing about 25lbs last month. I do cardio 6 days a week for 45 mins each time. I alternate my cardio workouts between the elliptical, the treadmill, and I use the bike and stairmaster seldomly. I am noticing great weight loss with this routine.
Avatar f tn I lost 25 lbs in 2017 after realizing how much weight I had gained (and while having other hypo symptoms) by upping my exercise regime and counting every single calorie I ate for about a year. I don't suggest this for most people, but I can tell you what little tweaks worked for me.
Avatar m tn Hi I have been losing weight and dont know why. The scale is going up rather than down though. I dont workout or do excercise so this is all strange to me. My period also looks lighter than normal. I have had bloodtest which they said is normal.Any idea ?
Avatar m tn I have chronic Hepatitis B and was wondering if moderate weight lifting is all right as it really works out for me. I have a stressful job and lifting weights really helps me to get rid of stress and makes me feel good about myself. I live in United States and as far as monitoring my status it has been done so every 6 months for the last 7 years and my ALT and AST are always on the very lower range and liver functions tests are all normal.
Avatar f tn First of all I would say it depends on how far u are and not only That but also whether or not u were lifting heavy before pregnancy. It's easy to strain yourself when lifting specially because your balance isn't as good. I'm 120 pounds pretty petite if I lift 50 pounds that's Def not safe lol.
Avatar m tn Hi, my name is Ben and i would like to know if weight lifting stunts growth or not? And why? Also i would like to know if anyone knows if there are ways how one can grow taller ?
Avatar n tn Is anyon weight lifting during their pregnancy i do alot of squats dead lifts and hugg intensity exercises. My doctor said it was alright but other s ob say otherwise..
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 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.
Avatar f tn s common for woman who are overweight to lose weight while pregnant..
