How can I lose 20-25 kg(44-55 lbs) in 6 months?

Metformin: Metformin is very effective for helping lose body fat. As we grow older, we all tend to become Insulin resistant. Insulin's function is to move sugar from the blood into the cells where it is stored as fat. I routinely prescribe metformin to my overweight patients (mostly non-diabetics) with overwhelmingly gratifying success. They feel better, have more energy, and lose their carb cravings. ...Read more

Because you went farther slow walking you would have burned more calories and therefore, lost more weight from the longer walk. ...Read more

Food is: medicine. Exercise is very healthful also. Please see doc and ask about a low carb higher protein food plan. If your doc is ok w/that for you, it can put your body into ketosis, which is fat burning rather than sugar burning. Keep moving, even if it isn't formal exercise. a brisk walk daily helps a lot. Peace and good health. Think holistically and the pounds will come of slowly&safely. ...Read more

Don't Try!: It is physiologically to lose more than 1.5 to 2 Lbs/week! On a strenuous diet, you will lose pounds of water first. Tragically, on a severe diet, you will lose muscle and bone mass- but when you take in calories, your body stores it as FAT- what you don't want. Muscle BURNS sugar, fat STORES it. You'll significantly increase your risk of diabetes. Eat small, frequent meals. EXERCISE. ...Read more
