Does your body get used to the fitness if you run every night?

Yes!: You will accommodate and will not have to work as hard so you will not get as good of a workout. I am a big advocate of hiit (high intensity interval training) and recommend you add hill work or some sprints to your workout to challenge yourself - 30 sec sprint with 90 sec jog works well x 8. This workout also enhances natural secretion of growth hormone and increases your resting metabolism.

Can you tell me about premature menopause?

Menopause : When the ovaries stop egg production and periods cease prior to age 40, we consider it premature menopause. The treatment plan is similar at any age, but sometime symptoms are more abrupt and severe. Osteoporosis is a major concern as are sexual function and cardiovascular health.

How can I use an exercise app to prevent cravings?

Dr. Seema Patel

Not sure: Your question is not very clear. Craving for what? Food exercise, etc? Usually cravings are caused by repeated use of a substance, i.E caffeine, chocolate, etc; your body gets used to this; the best thing is to wean yourself off. You can go cold turkey or slow wean. Drink water because most things are dehydrating, chart to see triggers: menstrual cycle, moods, weather etc to prepare yourself.

How can muscle imbalances keep me from reaching fitness?

Dr. James Henning
Anesthesiology 50 years experience
Through Injuries!: Unless i'm missing something in your question, muscle imbalances (differences in strength) may cause undo strain on supporting structures when lifting. Nerves and nerve roots can by compressed accidentally by inappropriate twisting in order to hoist weight. This is dangerous and should be scrupulously avoided by trying to strengthen all muscle groups similarly.
