Weight loss bikram yoga

Common Questions and Answers about Weight loss bikram yoga


Avatar f tn I use to practise bikram yoga 5-6 times a week. When we found out I was pg, my doc said it was too hot and I was instructed to stop until 2nd trimester. I lost the baby and have always wondered if the yoga played a part in the mc. Since the mc, I have cut way back. But it's been a year and we still haven't gotten pg. We want a baby but how long do I put my life on hold... I went to yoga 4 times a week during the first two weeks of this cycle.

368461 tn?1291519187 Once I get the go ahead from my midwife I will be going back to Bikram Yoga... and I cannot wait for that day- I feel the need to sweat!
Avatar n tn It was hard and I used to cry for the baby. So i think this attributed to the weight loss in the beginning (note i could not exercise as yet). However, now that i am exercising i don't seem to be getting anywhere so right now i am just relaxing and stop worrying about my weight and just try to do the best i can in exercising and dieting. doesn't seem to work but I'm not giving up.
Avatar m tn There are several different types of yoga, including Bikram (hot yoga), Hatha yoga (body balancing), and Ashtanga (rigorous) yoga. Each type of yoga provides different benefits and postures. However, all yoga styles are similar in that they massage the organs, develop muscles, and increase blood flow and oxygen levels throughout the body. Yoga has clear physical and mental benefits for Diabetics.
233915 tn?1218816727 If you are eating oatmeal cookies and having red wine this could be the main reason why you aren't losing weight. Sounds like you are eating healthy, but not eating for weight-loss. Wine and oatmeal cookies should be part of the maintaining phase. Once you are down to your ideal weight then you can have a glass or two at night with a couple of cookies, while continuing to eat healthy. Alcohol is a major reason why so many people are overweight.
Avatar m tn Belief is a huge part of recovery you need to believe that you are going to recover. 2. Bikram Yoga (The amount you sweat in Bikram is amazing and the skin is the bodies largest organ. 3-4 per week regular (until recently due to work commitments). Yoga is working on a hormonal level and there is research done at Harvard that back up many health benefits. Plus I love it . But I still practice Hatha anyway when I can .
305180 tn?1279720347 How old is your baby? Weight loss can vary from woman to woman. You should be burning up to 750 calories a day if you are full time nursing. That being said I think it's more common to see weight loss occur when your baby goes through growth spurts and is nursing more. It also depends on how much you gained during pregnancy. I gained about 50 lbs with my second and didn't lose it very fast.
Avatar f tn Bikram is somewhat known for causing either weight gain or lack of loss. It builds a lot of muscle, particularly in your core and legs (all those balance poses). If you feel slimmer in your clothes you are losing fat and gaining muscle. So don't worry! Do you do your yoga in the morning? If so, maybe your headaches are from leftover dehydration. I would make sure you are well hydrated and maybe try a sports drink for electrolye replacement. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I had a TRAM in September 2007 I am struggling with a distented high adbominal wall siutation which is painful and seems to swell post exercise. I have returned to by Bikram yoga class two days a week though I struggle with some of the backbending poses and I do 30 minutes of weight training three days a week. I can't seem to lose this new spare tire high on my abdominal wall regardless of how much excertise I do. What do you recommend?
Avatar f tn My weight this week: 140 Goal weight: 125 I exercised 5 out of the 7 days. Also I stopped eating chocolate licorice (my husband lovingly refers to it as my "crack"). I am trying to pump first thing in the morning so that my supply can rebuild after I get off the treadmill at night (don't know if that makes sense). My breasts always seem empty after I workout so I have my husband feed Mark after I workout.
Avatar n tn I am asking because this will slow down your metabolism and cause weight gain even with taking Phendimetrazine. I would like to recommend you try taking Bikram Yoga along with your balanced diet that you are on. I believe this will help you tremendously. It is a hot Yoga so be prepared to sweat alot. Give it time and be patient. I hope this helps and good luck.
5405179 tn?1367466174 -Constatnt elevated heart rate (hasn't been as bad, mostly 100-110) SEVERE mental fog,tingling in limbs at random moments, chest pains, EXHAUSTION, no motivation, unexplained weight loss , stair/walking, kill me!

Avatar n tn you go from hyperthyroid (rapid heartbeat, anxiety, energetic, sweaty, shaky, going to the bathroom alot/loose stools, hungry/weight loss) to hypothyroid ( slow heartbeat, apathetic, lethargic, cold, lifeless, dry skin, constipated, not hungry/weight gain/bloated) very quickly. like overnight. ohhh it's fun.
5092217 tn?1367270227 I am a marathon runner, full time high school IT teacher, a personal trainer, running coach, and weight loss support. I have done absolutely everything “right” to avoid things like heart disease, stroke, and other conditions that can be related to a sedentary lifestyle and bad diet. Nevertheless, in Jan of last year I had a horrible headache; the absolute worst headache of my life. Long story short, I had a bleed in the subarachnoid space around my brain, near the brainstem.
Avatar f tn I then OVER DID IT, and did my favorite Bikram Yoga, did some eleyptical and even tried a run! I almost passed out at Bikram yoga. Regular Yoga class was ok for me, but, trust me, your body DOES NOT have the calories to burn by exercising AS WELL AS burning the abnormal calories that the HCG is doing for you. IF you must work out, walk at a brisk pace. I did a "Race for the CUre' Marathon here in Tucson, and it was 3 hour walk. I think that was a little over the top as well.
Avatar f tn I am a 64 year old healthy woman - work out every day and have for 40 years - do Bikram Yoga regularly. I have the bi-lateral arm pain/heaviness/fatigue episodes (exactly as CeCe describes above) that last for between 30 seconds and 5 minutes. My hands feel trembly but aren't totally useless. I feel nothing in my chest. I can't really function normally when the episodes occur - I just sit and let them pass. They've been happening for over 3-4 years.
Avatar f tn Running and other exercises may not be the only option, there is Pilates, Yoga, Yolates, Bikram yoga etc.. and swimming that may have double benefits. ♥Medications can also upset your gut/constipation or diarrhoea. ♥Have a health diary where you can write what is going on with all aspects of your health. Eg; you can use EXCEL to work out tables so you don't have to write everyday, only ticking boxes. Make the time for you to heal. ♥ LOVE yourself.
Avatar n tn Since that time I have forced myself to work through the weight lifting and have cut out the the stairmaster (which did cause a lot of sweating). I found that after a few days the flu like symptoms would diminish from the weight lifting. However, if a took a break for a week or so and then got back into it I went through the same thing. I am in very good shape and I don't know what to do to fix the problem. I had considered the possibility of mineral depletion but I do eat well.
Avatar n tn I noticed the buzzing three days ago in the evening after an abb workout(incline sit ups included last set with a 70lb weight on my stomach). Went without the vibrations for a day, but ran three miles today and did another abb workout this afternoon. Guess what the vibrations are back again this evening. Think that working out is aggravating my back / and or nerves and this is somehow causing these vibrations to occur after my body has been stressed.
Avatar n tn I am a triathlete, run, swim, bike, just finished a marathon. 50 year old female. Also weight train. All is to say, trying to keep fit and healthy and it results in this terrible pain that nothing will help make go away until the PT is able to get the muscle to relase with Miofacial release techniques and other things. My question is this- I know I need to lay off my training- how bad is swimming for this problem once I get the muscle settled down and am pain free again?
Avatar f tn I will talk to my doctor about the weight gain. I have always gained weight easily - but I figured that after surgery it might be easier for me to lose weight. Ha! I haven't seen a doctor since about 2 weeks after surgery. I had no idea that I would be having problems this long afterward. I figured a couple of months and I would be back as good as new. I am a strong person and hardly ever get sick. I live in the country and work hard outside, i.e.
Avatar n tn I also can not walk in the store for more than 15 minutes, can not do household chores, can not do much of anything. Can't walk or exercise to lose weight, because it hurts too much, but the weight is not helping my back - it's a catch 22. What is a person to do?
Avatar n tn I am a 34 year-old active, white female, average height, very healthy weight. I had an interior carotid dissection over a week ago, they think from a sports trauma (though I didn't do anything where I knowingly hurt myself). Luckily, I have 100% collateral blood flow, no brain damage, no shifting, etc...best possible outcome. Interestingly, in addition, I have tested positive for antiphospholipid antibodies (after testing false-positive for syphilis---common, who knew).
Avatar n tn ~) Please comment if you know of anything that can be done about this besides asthma treatments and yoga. Been there and done that. thanks...
Avatar f tn Really, you need a consistent med to help you sleep, though. I've been on Ambien (kinda freaky, had memory loss, didn't like but slept), Trazodone (slept but had heart palpitations), Lunesta (did nothing for me), Remeron (loved the sleep, hated the weight gain), Ativan (loved the sleep, didn't like idea of dependency) and now I'm doing the whole Pamelor thing and it is working so far. As you can see, I have been thru a great deal with the insomnia issue!
Avatar n tn He told me how wonderful this was because I left the hospital the next day with no cast and my healing time was supposed to be shorter. OK. I am very active, I walk a lot and do Bikram yoga. My leg bothers me all the time. It is sore to touch where the implant ends towards my ankle and always hurts when I talk a lot. I always just work through it. When I run or jog it really hurts. I am not so old that I don't want to run or job sometimes.
Avatar n tn the day before this started I was at yoga doing a twist when I felt a very, very sharp pain in my right side under my rib, along with a feeling as if a rubber band had been snapped in the same place. The pain was excruciating and traveled through my breast and shoulder, but was gone in a few minutes and I was able to continue class. Also, I was in the desert for a few days and it went away but returned about a week later.
