Walking is GREAT !: You burn about 100 calories per mile and it takes 3,500 calories to lose a pound. Results will depend on how many calories you burn versus how many you eat. ...Read more

Walking (Definition)

Your doctor may also suggest a safe exercise plan. Walking is usually the easiest type of exercise, but swimming or other low-impact exercises can work just as well. Exercise is an important way to keep blood sugar in control, and physical activity in pregnancy has been found to decrease the risk ...Read more

The timer goes 6min.: The last time I looked at the 6-minute walk, the rules seemed to say the timer goes for 6 minutes. That means a patient walking 1 minute, resting 3 minutes, walking again 1 minute, resting again... would be done after resting 1 minute the second rest (1+3+1+1 = 6). The total distance walked during those 2 minutes of walking would be used to decide normal or abnormal. No sitting during the resting. ...Read more

I had X-ray on knees, results were normal. I still have heavy stiff . Find it hard to walk. Not sure what to do?

Many causes: It's not unusual for a patient to have pain or stiffness in the knees, and yet x-rays are normal. There are a number of structures in and around the knee joint that cannot be seen on a pain x-ray. For a discussion about the various conditions that cause knee symptoms see this Mayo Clinic website: mayocl.in/10ASgc5 You may want to see an Rheumatologist or Orthopedic Surgeon for an opinion. ...Read more

If i walk 30 minutes daily at 5 km/h, will it be useful for weight loss? And if no, what is the recommended practice to get result?

If i walk 30 minutes daily at 5 km/h, will it be useful for weight loss? And if no, what is the recommended practice to get result?

Distance not time: Walking is an excellent exercise. The speed is not as important as the distance. At 5 km/h for 30 min you will walk about 2.5 km (1.5 mile). Depending on your size, you will burn about 120-180 calories. To lose 1 lb you need to burn 3500 calories. I generally recommend walking 15 miles (24 km) per week in order to lose weight. ...Read more

I had an abortion 5 months ago and everyday i walk around with guilt on my face. I cry everyday. I am trying for another no results what's wrong ?

I had an abortion 5 months ago and everyday i walk around with guilt on my face. I cry everyday. I am trying for another no results what's wrong ?

Abortion: Simply "trying for another" is unlikely to eliminate your current feelings. It might be more helpful to work with a psychologist or other mental health therapist about your feelings. This way you'll have a safe place to grieve, and eventually move on. Family members, friends -- even doctors and clergy -- may have their own judgments about your abortion. This can be an extra, unneeded burden. ...Read more

I have crps in my right foot. I cannot walk, stand or drive very well as a result. Is it possible for me to work?

I have crps in my right foot. I cannot walk, stand or drive very well as a result. Is it possible for me to work?

Some CRPSers work: I have patients with crps that indeed work, some even high activity jobs. Many treatments for crps exist ranging from conservative therapy up to sympathetic blocks and spinal cord stimulation (neuromodulation). Different patients require different levels of treatment.However that being said, every patient case is different in terms of outcomes and needs to be treated as such. Talk with your doctor. ...Read more

Weight loss: Perhaps you should wait 2-3 weeks. As food is concerned, 1. do not snack, 2. Decrease the amount of your lunch and dinner by 50%. How is your sleep? You should get a medication Phentermine 37.5 mg. which will lower your appetite. This med. may induce insomnia, therefore as you wake up, may stat with 1/2 tab and the other 1/2 at 02:00 pm, Take vitamins, avoid carbohydrates, have fish and lean meat ...Read more
