Is there any fast losing weight method for a 15 year old?

Gradual is better.: Weight loss should be gradual. It will happen automatically with life-style changes such as aerobic exercise, and eating healthy: avoiding sugars, all sodas, ice-cream, juices, starchy vegetables, all refined processed carbohydrates (bread, pasta, rice, etc). Control your portions, eat 5-6 small meals a day, never eat past 6-7:00pm, drink plenty water, fresh fruits and vegetables, and lean protein. ...Read more

I'm 19 year old male. 5'8 240 pounds and I have trouble losing weight. I have tried diets but none seem to work. Are there any pills that can help me?

I'm 19 year old male. 5'8 240 pounds and I have trouble losing weight. I have tried diets but none seem to work. Are there any pills that can help me?

You want to avoid: "Pills", as there are short term fixes - at best - that can't replace optimizing your eating habits. Remember, it's not just what you eat, it's how much you eat too. It sounds like you really need to sit down with a nutritionist to help create meal plans that are feasible and sustainable for you in the long run. Again, please don't get caught up in the quest for a "pill cure". ...Read more

I'm 21 year old male. Slightly above average weight. I have been slowly losing weight and i never feel full. I just keep eating is diabetes possible?

Of course: To lose weight, you must stop eating before you feel full. Hunger is a sensation designed to keep you from losing weight.As you get older, your chances of diabetes will increase, particularly if you have a positive family history of diabetes, are a person of color--and particularly if you are overweight. Work on continued weight loss, and make sure your blood pressure and cholesterol are normal. ...Read more

Hello im a 17 year old girl, who is 5ft 7 and im weighing 105 pound and still losing weight, is there anything i could do to stop this?

Need evaluation: I can exclude the main psychological condition causing weight loss, anorexia nervosa, as these people tell themselves that the more skeletal they appear, the better they look, and hove no concerns. You are concerned, and you need a complete evaluation by your PCP to see if something serious is occurring--much too complex for an evaluation here. Hyperthyroidism is one of dozens of possibilities ...Read more

What is the life expectancy of a 78 year old, Stage 4 colon cancer spread to liver and lungs? Having chemotherapy (tablets) but losing weight.

What is the life expectancy of a 78 year old, Stage 4 colon cancer spread to liver and lungs? Having chemotherapy (tablets) but losing weight.

Life expectancy: At 78, with stage IV colon cancer, the survival is about 4-6 months without treatment. With the new treatments combining chemo with biological drugs, survival times are in the range of 24-30 months. With a less aggressive treatment I estimate an AVERAGE survival of 9-12 months. Keep in mind these estimates are just a ball park figure, keep things one month at a time. ...Read more
