I am gaining weight very quickly if I stop my dite. What can I do to keep my weight as it is. Please help me.?

Diet: Unfortunately for most of us weight gain or loss is simple math. If we take in more calories than we use we gain weight, and to lose weight we have to take in less or use more. If you are very overweight your metabolism slows down even more so it is harder to lose. Get your thyroid checked just to make sure it isn't a cause. ...Read more

I am gaining weight sudenly. Is that because I got sexual active.

Is there a reason why I am gaining weight if I exercise and eat right?

Questions!: What is eating "right? " many people think they are but are not. But, apart from that issue, exercising increases plasma volume (2-3 lbs), and will add muscle mass.

I would have this done, because cyou want to see increased leaness, not fat%. ...Read more

You should see your doctor to make sure you're on the right amount of thyroid medication. Other causes of weight gain should probably be investigated by you and your doctor. ...Read more

I am gaining weight. I need a diet plan to loose it. My weight is now 104 kg : (. I can't eat much as well, even I eat little - I feel that I am full.

Low carb diet: I've found a low carb (no starch or sugar) ketogenic diet containing about 80+rams of protein and below 50grams of carbohydrate along with mild exercise the most effective for weight, fat and girth loss. If you get in mild ketosis which is fat burning state your hunger level will be very little and you won't be starving yourself. I would suggest avoiding exercise the first week that you start the diet but after that you can exercise as much as you tolerate which will improve your weight-los. ...Read more

I am gaining weight after anorexia for the past month (BMI reaching 17 after being at 15). Any chance I could build up muscle? If so, how can I do it?

Requires using them: Muscle cells respond to both intensity & frequency of use. Without use they atrophy away as in polio victims (Polio virus damages nerves, not muscles). But if muscles get no nerve orders they rarely contract & waste away. Thus focus on all opportunities to use muscles to do actions which require/challenge your strength, hopefully without overdoing & creating damage. Athletes say: No Pain, No Gain. ...Read more

Cannot diagnose: Without a full history, exam and tests it is impossible to figure this out over the internet when the doctors seein you have not been able to do so.
