A female asked:

Interval training: Weight around your mid section is mainly visceral fat. To lose this type of weight you must exercise at a heart rate that is fast enough to challenge you but not too fast, because at very high heart rates your body does not get the oxygen it needs to burn fat. Ask a doctor or fitness specialist to calculate this for you and then get on a program that achieves this. Try interval training programs.

BMI >27: The current recommendation for weight loss medications (diet pills) in patients with impaired glucose tolerance (pre diabetes) is if the ratio of your weight in kg to the square of your height in meters is greater than 27kg/m2.

No: In general a good rule is to avoid all weight loss medication while pregnant or trying to get pregnant. Harmful effects on the developing child (fetus) are possible.
