Is consuming 920 calories a day ok? I'm trying to lose weight by exercising & counting calories. I'm 140 lbs, ideal weight is my prebaby weight of 122

Is consuming 920 calories a day ok? I'm trying to lose weight by exercising & counting calories. I'm 140 lbs, ideal weight is my prebaby weight of 122

Many more ?s: It is possible to eat around 1, 000 cal per day to loose weight. The trick is getting the proper nutrition and vitamins into that constrained calorie count. I would also say that exercise at that calorie level would need to be temporarily halved or stopped, depending on what you are doing and how intense the workout is. A better approach may be a few more calories with moderate exercise. ...Read more

Lost 28lbs on 30 day hCG diet, day 11 in p4.  Gained 12lbs w/abd distention (3.5") in last 10 days. Maintaining 1200 cal low carb diet. Causes?

Exercise: The HCG approach to weight loss is not recommended by multiple reputable medical organizations and fda (http://www.Fda.Gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm281333.Htm) clinical trials show no extra weight loss beyond diet alone. It can cause blood clots and serious depression. I recommend stopping hcg. Increasing exercise is a good way to get over a weight loss plateau. ...Read more

Calories every day and exercising 4 times a week (burning 400 - 450 calories). Will i maintain weight?

You need enough: Calories to maintain your metabolic rate. Calculate your weight in pounds and multiply by 10 to determine your baseline. Then add the activity amount of calorie burning each day, 10% for minimal activity and more for vigorous activity (at least 30%). It appears you are able to determine your activity caloric burning so add that amount to your baseline on those days. Adjust based on loss/gain. ...Read more

Over last 2 months, no sugar, alcohol, coffee, limited carbs, diary, small portions. Increased exercise to 30 minutes per day. No weight loss yet. Why?

Over last 2 months, no sugar, alcohol, coffee, limited carbs, diary, small portions.  Increased exercise to 30 minutes per day. No weight loss yet. Why?

Depends: Could be a thyroid or other medical condition, so see a doctor to get this evaluated. Also depends on your net total daily calorie intake. If calorie intake is less than calories burned on a daily basis, over time you should lose weight. Some people who exercise, end up eating more calories, evening out the net total calories per day, so no weight loss . I recommend myfitnesspal.Com website or app. ...Read more

Diabetic after whipples. 250mg metformin 3 times a day. Diabetes under control but losing weight after cutting down on carbs.want weight gain?

It will be difficult: I'm glad that you're able to control your inevitable diabetes after a Whipples with only a low dose of Metformin. Metformin is also one of the best anti-cancer medications there is--so I encourage you to continue to take it. You'll just need to increase your caloric intake--mostly fat and protein. Appetite enhancers include the antihistamine Periactin (cyproheptadine hydrochloride) (best taken at night), and the cannabinols. ...Read more

3500 calories is 1lb: 500 calories is very low, and if prescribed by a physician can be used for a short time. Pounds are lost by losing 3500 calories.

So it depends on the calories your body burns. Varies by metabolism and exercise. ...Read more

Will running two miles per day on a standard 1800 calorie diet help me burn body fat and gain muscle?

Will running two miles per day on a standard 1800 calorie diet help me burn body fat and gain muscle?

Yes and no: In men and women, resistance training combined with a healthy diet will build muscles....More in men than women but it works for both. Stronger muscles tend to burn more calories than weaker muscles even when you are not using them...That helps reduce fat. Lifting with proper form to the point of momentary failure plus a good diet seems to be the best way to get the muscles to respond. ...Read more
