How to control the obesity - give me any exercise plan and diet plan?

Diet exercise plan: There is no quick and easy remedy to obesity. People come in different heights, weights, ages, sexes, races, and have different exercise habits and food intake. With those qualifiers, you need to burn about 500 calories a day, to loose a pound a week. That means either eating less, and using an app like myfitnesspal to track, or exercising more, using a fitbit to track. 10k steps a day = wt loss. ...Read more

Have you lost weight: The best thing you can do for yourself is to change your lifestyle.....Not just go on a "diet". I don't know what you mean by "diet foods", but i think you are craving the "non-diet" foods because you have not found food that you like which are also healthy. Once you find these....You will rarely crave "non-diet" foods. See my website for more info: www.Jhsurgery.Com. ...Read more

I am obese and want to start dieting and exerciseing. First i want to detox my body, how long can I safely try the chicken broth & water diet

Realize: You can detoxify without exposing yourself to suboptimal nutrition. If you must "detox" focus on unprocessed, minimally cooked fruits and vegetables. But if you must go for with this broth detox, you should review this with your doctor. While persons have been known to be able survive for many weeks without food(as long as water is available) not every one tolerates this well. ...Read more

What percentage of obese/overweight people fail to lose weight after dieting?

Vast majority: With more than 70% of americans overweight or obese the trend is to become heavier if we do nothing. The key is creating permanent changes in eating habits not temporary ones (dieting). Typically people lose weight while "dieting" and gain it back once they stop.

Upper right back pain in one spot. Present for months. Obese but I have lost 65lbs dieting. Back only starts hurting when i get to work and sit?

Unchanged-good!: There are many causes for pain that is unilateral and in the posterior-upper back. Subscapular bursitis is quite common; surascapular palsy is another, and there are more. You need to see a doctor who specializes in pain diagnosis; physical medicine specialist or a rheumatology specialist, or an orthopedic surgeon. I believe the root causes will be determined more quickly. ...Read more

Avoid carbs or sugar: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Maybe: There are some small, I mean small studies that suggest some benefit in fatty liver disease for flaxseed oil, but it's not great. It's unlikely to harm you, but make sure you don't consume too much, as even if its good, the high caloric density can catch up with you and cause weight gain. Good luck. ...Read more

I am 38f obese. Wt285. Fatty liver with borderline heptomegly. I am losing 4 lbs a wk. I am dieting and walking how do I slow it down?

You are right: Ideally when losing weight with fatty liver disease you want to avoid excessively fast weight loss - there is evidence to keep weight loss at a rate less than 3.5lbs/week; as too rapid weight loss can make things worse. This means you may need to back off a bit on your caloric restriction and/ or be mindful of the vigorousness of your exercise. Though it sounds like you are making great strides. ...Read more

I am 25, obese and will start working out, dieting soon. Will symptoms of Meralgia paraesthetica subside once I lose weight? What can i do?

I am 25, obese and will start working out, dieting soon. Will symptoms of Meralgia paraesthetica subside once I lose weight? What can i do?

Very possibly ...: As I suspect you know, meralgia parenthetic is caused by compression of the nerve that supplies sensation to the skin of your thigh. Tight clothing, weight gain/obesity and pregnancy are common causes. You can expect it to get better with weight loss, & for most people the pain goes away within a few months. Wear looser clothing. You can take OTC acetaminophen or ibuprofen if needed. Good wishes:) ...Read more
