Common Questions and Answers about Weight loss industry


Avatar f tn Actually, yoga is awesome exercise and though the postures are usually done slowly and deliberately, it's great for weight loss. So let's get crackin' ---- WE have weight to lose...........................
Avatar n tn I work in the construction industry as a business owner and carpenter. My concern is excessive weight loss. I currently weigh 143 lbs. In the last 6 weeks I have lost 11 lbs. I eat well, though not excessively. I am 5' 10" tall. My diet consists of a large breakfast of two eggs, toast, cereal w/ whole milk. I also consume a hemp based protein suplement as well as a multivitamin daily. Lunch is a sandwhich or two, water, occasional chips, banana, apple or some other fruit.
Avatar n tn And you're right...FOOD (the right quanity/type)is the 1st step towards weight loss. Coupled with walking at least 30 minutes when you take a pit stop (probably a much needed break from sitting down) will start the lbs to shed.. Good Luck!
6749350 tn?1401984005 got blood results n said everythin is ok thyroid etc so maybe tx would really like to know how common losin weight eot os as all weight loss seems to be during tx thanks geo
Avatar n tn proper exercise as you can digest your food. See weight loss is not a fly by night process. It takes time. common weight loss mistakes are as follows: (1) you have to fix your diet plan according to you(becuase u r obese) not according to a average person. this thing is often ignored by most of the people. because they follow a diet plan that is suitable for an average healthy man.
1317224 tn?1378708734 Thanks, Barb, for the encouragement. Yes, I am a nurse: 6 years in med-surg, 18 in ICU, 4 in emergency room and a few in geriatrics and teaching in an LPN school. Right now, though, I'm unemployed & considering leaving nursing (the industry has changed dramatically & it is difficult to provide even the minimal care that patients need unless you sacrifice your own health)---though it would be quite scary to be a middle-aged, single, mortgage-holding career changer in this economy!
Avatar n tn Are there any doctors who give these shots in Phila.for weightloss? Where can I get them on line?
Avatar m tn I have only lida weight loss missing several lbs . to date so it has not been an incredible fat reduction tablet, I recommended this to my sister and now she is taking it much too!
Avatar n tn that's the one thing the industry does not want !!! get on a bike or walk, walking is one of the fastest weight loss regiments you can do. just walk, walk an hour every day. pounds will shed quick !!! stop eating big dinners, studies show that thin healthy people (in general) eat big breakfasts and small low fat dinners. stop eating after six pm, then drop it to 4 pm (depending on your schedule) and drink water, not soda or sugary juices, but water.
Avatar f tn pharmaceutical geniuses finally realize what most of us with real weight problems already know - weight loss is a METABOLISM PROBLEM! Going into restaurants and watching 90 pound females devour 3 times what I do, yet never gaining an ounce is damned infuriating! Sorry - I'm just venting and wondered if anyone else shares my frustration?
Avatar f tn In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier! The key to doing so is no secret-- eat a variety of healthy (organic if possible) foods ( tip; it helps to stay away from packaged foods which are high in calories -- remember calories aren't necessarily bad, it's when they're empty that they are, this means they don't fill you up and promote excessive eating.
Avatar f tn unfortunately, what often comes with trauma is loss of appetie and the subsequent loss of weight, which in turn can affect so much else. i've had bouts of loss of appetite and haven't found a solution to easily getting my appetite back- but learnt that no matter what my appetite dictates for me: nourishement is really really important so at those times i've tried to be conscientious of the foods i do eat (and that i eat no matter what my appetite is telling me).
97676 tn?1340408973 well, mostly all products are inferior types.. its just a marketing strategy most company owners do.. as i have researched before the trend in supplement industry are "the newest supplements, the best" but in reality... its just a marketing startegy.. they put this product on the market for about 5 months knowing that most impulsive buyers would buy it since it the latest i nthe market.. then after it, the product disapear in the market just like most other products..
Avatar f tn once a touch-up to return my roots from grey and brown to brown. Does everyone experience hair loss and did I make my hair loss chances higher? From the looks of things, my hair still is hanging on. However I am starting to see it off my head more.
Avatar n tn It was supposed to be the answer to my prayers now i just feel mad at myself for having it done falling pray to the cosmetic weight loss industry and getting into debt.
Avatar f tn I was stunned when the results came back because I have been active most of my life, plenty of weight bearing exercise, have no family history of osteoporosis and so on. After the diagnosis, I went looking and found that Combination Therapy is strongly associated with decreased bone mineral density in both men and women. The studies suggest that Ribavirin, rather than Interferon is the culprit. I didn't have a scan prior to Combination Therapy, so I can't say to what degree it was responsible.
Avatar n tn (so definitely get a full work up including your FT4 which is most important and FT3) ..and also if you haven't tried going gluten free...that may be key to some weight loss. Gluten intolerance and autoimmune disease are intertwined. Keep us posted on your results.
Avatar n tn Does any one know of an anti depressant which does not cause short term memory loss? I have read about several of them (on this site) & they all seem to have really bothrersome side effects. I would appreciate if anyone would know of just one ! which does not affect the short term memory in such a drastic way & also causes Unusual dreams ?
604197 tn?1292308636 I was 43 when my accident occurred. I will probably not ever be the same again. I suffer from dizziness and loss of balance, loss of coordination and a tremor in my right hand whenever I try to write, eat or do anything that involves fine motor skills. But I still see small improvements after 4 yrs. so don't ever give up. Its a long road to recovery and I'm much better off than I was at first.
Avatar m tn They offer one of the best support programs in the weight loss industry, after you reach your ideal weight, so you can keep off the unwanted pounds. I strongly recommend them to you. http://www.sobobamedspa.com/soboba-medspa-b12-shots-weightloss.
Avatar n tn I understand that it takes a long time to get this drug out of your system and the weight loss is very slow. I think that most of the 4 pound weight loss is because I fasted for a few days and took UltraClear which is a powdered "metabolic detoxification" product you mix with water. I used to only be able to get it through a doctor but now it is avaibale on the internet. It is a de-tox flush that I thought would help get Lexapro out of my system. I think it has helped.
Avatar n tn just out of habit...I feel like..weird if i don't. Then....after no major weight loss or gain.... I suddenly in June (just in time for swimsuit season....and I live on the coast in TX...so it sucked) I went from my 140 on a "fat" day....to 220 by the middle of August. So, in a month and a half I gained nearly 100 lbs. I never changed my eating or exercise habits until early September when for some reason I kept getting weaker and weaker....
Avatar n tn So I've been doing research on the topic, trying to educate myself on little-known traditional medicines and weight-loss aids – that is something that is important for me in my life right now. ;) Have you heard about garcinia cambogia? Do you know anything about it? I came across the info about it here, from a place called Investigative Reviews. Basically, what the garcinia apparently does, is that it both helps to burn fat as well as slowing down the speed at which the body absorbs new fat.
98010 tn?1305903335 So in other words because you can't explain it logically you think people are just doing it wrong? I lost weight/ maintained weight loss for 7 years happily, then at 40 staerted to train for half marathons. I cycle to work, do vibro plate combined with weights also walking. I have gained a stone since then and lots of muscle.The reason I know I wasn't eating more is that I followed the Slimming World programme throughout and still do.
Avatar n tn It has been over the past month to month and a half that she has noticed some weight loss. I believe she is really watching her fat intake and carb intake, however, she is not doing anything like Atkins. When someone with diabetes is low, we all know they need carbs and in general need a certain amt. to balance out the blood sugars when insulin is taken. We know this disease called diabetes is a balancing act. Every time I have seen my sis take a shot, it has been in her arm.
Avatar n tn Also, if the bodygem said you needed roughly 1200 cals/d for weight loss, I really wouldn't go below that level because it can actually make it more difficult for you to lose weight. You also might want to consider seeing a Registered Dietitian but if you do, I'd make sure beforehand that they also have some type of exercise background (ACSM/ACE certification, Kinesiology Degree, etc.) I know it can be frustrating but don't lose hope.
Avatar f tn I agree that there's not much you can do since she's an adult and you can't hardly "force" her to change anything. She will have to come to a point, where she WANTS to lose weight for herself, whether it be for health reasons or to raise her self-esteem. I also agree that it will do no good to chide her about her weight; that will only make matters worse and she may eventually come to resent you for making her feel even worse than she might already feel about it.
Avatar f tn I think it's also important for people to realize that exercise isn't just for weight loss - as we see, it's not that good for weight loss - it's good for over-all health and well-being as well.
