1035252 tn?1427231433 but again they are seeing many cases that defy those rules. The general rule of thumb is....if you are having trouble conceiving, and have PCOS, weight loss may help your symptoms. If you are gaining weight and begin having trouble conceiving, you may have developed PCOS. Myth: a thin woman isn't healthy enough to carry a baby if she doesn't gain a bunch of weight. Reality: False false false!!!
Avatar m tn There are several myths on the internet about what helps and what hinders you when it comes to weight-loss. Here are examples of the five of the most popular myths, and how Wu Yi Pixie Packs stack up against them. Myth Number 1: Diet Pills are a safe and easy way to lose weight quickly. There are so many different weight loss pills available from so many different sources that it's hard to sort through all of them and find which ones work.
Avatar m tn K T examines the myths about weight loss and points to diet sodas, prescription drugs, processed foods, diet foods and even mercury amalgums and candida overgrowth as just a few of the contributors to the disease of obesity. His approach to the solution is one that commands the most radical of lifestlye changes that will not make anyone merely seeking a pill or a quick fix happy.
147426 tn?1317269232 Thank you, this is great, especially as I'm ready to visit neuro #4. I'm have to believe he's not into any of these myths. How about words to the effect of "we have watch and wait; you just have burning nerve pain, not numbness or loss of strength" (despite the 30+ brain lesions)?
Avatar n tn weight loss pills are a billion dollar industry and are not designed to help you lose weight !!! 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.

Hopefully this article can help you answer questions and dismiss many of the myths surrounding this highly published, highly marketed topic.
685623 tn?1283485207 This is one of the biggest myths and mis-understandings that continues to get perpetuated. People have a mistaken belief that because whole corn often passes through us undigested, that any corn product will do the same. Well, these companies don’t use whole corn, the corn is ground or the outer shell is removed. Corn can provide a high level of digestible complex carbohydrates, essential amino acids and important fatty acids, like linoleic acid.
Avatar n tn We do the best that we can by watching what we eat, diet, and exercise, that is all we can do. There is no magic solution to weight loss. Thyroid should only give 10 to 15 lbs weight gain (thyroid.org) that would be easily lost once regulated on meds and levels correct for you within Labs reference range. If weight is more, than its do to something else and not thyroid! One of the enduring myths about the under active thyroid is that it is responsible for obesity. It is not.
1646889 tn?1301484828 If you are lean and fit - kinda odd that you have AI - usually someone with AI is pretty sick and cannot exercise. Salt loss is too much for them. Plus they would have lost a lot of un-intended weight - so some weight gain back would not be bad.
Avatar n tn I slammed my whole right side off the door and ever since I've been experiencing the same deal. Loss of strength throughout my entire right side, ear aches and hearing difficulties in my right ear, and all the muscles on the right side of my face seem to not work as well as before. When I lift my head up and down my back right neck muscle shakes and feels as though my left neck muscle is doing all the work.
Avatar n tn If they are a whitish transparent colour then perhaps they are old and you are just noticing them now due to weight loss. They are common on the breast area for women. As well as stomach, arms and legs, also for men. There are myths about how to get rid of them, I've been told pure Vitamin E oil as a topical solution everyday as often as possible until they disappear.
Avatar n tn A lot of hypo women want there TSH at the low end of Lab thinking that it will help with weight loss, weight control, or prevent weight gain. This is not correct and they sacrifice health and more added symptoms thinking this way. Most of the extra weight gained in hypothyroid individuals is due to excess accumulation of salt and water. Massive weight gain is rarely associated with hypothyroidism.
1659785 tn?1302522375 Avoid Breakfast Skipping It is just a wrong myth that skipping breakfast is supportive of weight loss goal. It is evident that Americans are not regular breakfast eaters; that is why the obesity rate is quite high there. Skipping breakfast helps in Poor insulin sensitivity Fat accumulation Cardiac problems Disturbed cholesterol profile Deficiency of iron Weight Exercise Is Not Bad For Women It is again a wrong perception that weight gain exercises make women muscular.
Avatar f tn Weeks of pain that comes and goes and may alternate with pain-free periods. Loss of appetite and weight loss. Bloating or nausea after eating. Less common but more serious symptoms of ulcers include: Vomiting after meals. Vomiting blood and/or material that looks like coffee grounds. Black stools that look like tar, or stools that contain dark red blood.

Avatar f tn None are correct. As for the weight loss thing, both times being pregnant I've lost close to 10 lbs if not more and I'm having my second girl. I've also never had cravings with my first and this time I can't even look at food without feeling sick but I'm hungry all the time :/ it's fun to think about but don't get your hopes up!
Avatar f tn same weight loss 1st trimester (almost at least...20lbs lost with DD, 16lbs lost with DS this time), same slow weight gain 2nd (1lb every 2wks) .....which is why I was expecting another girl. but we saw him again on u/s yesterday and definitely still a boy, lol.
147172 tn?1226761778 I understand what your saying, but unfortunately what is actually happening is you are dehydrating your body which is why you got high weight loss right away. Carbohydrates are our energy, fats are there secondary for energy, but protein is there to rebuild your muscles, tendons etc. and is the worst source of energy. High protein diets cause our bodies to become dehydrated giving us the illusion of weight loss.
9923140 tn?1407727029 I've thrown up all pregnancy and and have had so much morning sickness and loss of appetite.
Avatar f tn They will be able to help monitor your lab work, and deal with any problems you are having....like the appetite and weight loss. They could refer you to a dietician...there are all kinds of supplements out there for this exact reason...also, if it would ever be necessary...there are medications that help stimulate your appetite, and fight nausea. Bottom line is....with regualr visits to your ID doc...you can live a pretty normal life. Also, there is no need to suffer in silence....
Avatar n tn When my depression really flared up, I started (and still do to some extent) relating my depression symptoms to that of HIV. You know, fatigue, loss of appetite/weight, can't sleep, sleep too much, night sweats, etc. Hell, I even got really sick once (Winter last year), and my lymph nodes got really swollen. My mind always goes right back to it. Even when my family or a friend jokes about me being "skinny" or "pale", instantly my mind goes to it.
Avatar n tn A lot of hypo women want there TSH at the low end of Lab thinking that it will help with weight loss, weight control, or prevent weight gain. This is not correct, in which they sacrifice health and more added symptoms thinking this way. Actually it has been scientifically said that hypo feel better a little on the hypo side because their body is so use to function at a little higher level.
193137 tn?1367883663 He advised that coffee and tea drinkers who consume the currently recommended amount of calcium need not worry about caffeine's effect on their bones. Weight loss. Here's a bummer. Although caffeine speeds up metabolism, with 100 milligrams burning an extra 75 to 100 calories a day, no long-term benefit to weight control has been demonstrated.
Avatar f tn My mom went from overt diabetes to a normal glucose tolerance test with very little weight loss. I will not attempt to convert anyone, but no one will convince me that we didn't evolve with systems that expect a low carb diet. I have answers for all the myths surrounding the low carb diets if anyone want to ask privately. (like increased cardiovascular risk, gall bladder disease, kidney disease - all false). 'Nough said. I believe it as a scientist. I will probably need to delete this.
Avatar f tn she shouldn't be making you feel bad for gaining weight. Besides if you're worried about the weight loss afterwards all you need to do is exercise and breastfeed<- it brings off weight like crazy. Don't let them talk you into anything you don't want.
Avatar f tn Teak, is the 12 week conclusive even if you continue to have persistent thrush, abdominal issues and weight loss? I have lost considerable weight around my eyes and cheek bones and my waist.
Avatar f tn [31] There are other myths such as the effect of water on weight loss and constipation that have been dispelled.
1055824 tn?1387077024 When I STOPPED trying and decided to move on with my life is when I got pregnant. ;-) I decided to focus on weight loss and being really fit. My mantra became, "I'm doing this for a baby!" I lost 10 lbs AND got a BFP in a month.
