Please tell me what are some exercises that i can do to get my legs and stomach skinny?

Remember: Exercise is great, but for most the key to weight loss is actually in reduction of caloric intake. It's a lot easier to cut out several hundred calories per day than to consistent exercise that much(don't stop trying though). Otherwise, there are many great exercises like planks for your core muscle and squats and lunges for your legs. ...Read more

Possibly: Alcohol is absorbed into the blood more easily after the stomach is removed. There are a few studies that suggest that patients with alcoholism who undergo stomach removal may have more difficulties with their alcoholism afterwards.

I would like some powerful advice.. Alcoholism, weight gain, stomach issues?

I would like some powerful advice.. Alcoholism, weight gain, stomach issues?

Not sure what you: Mean by 'powerful' advice. If you have alcoholism, it is common to gain weight - alcohol has 8 calories per gram (about 120 per drink) and if you are drinking enough, you can take in 1000's of extra calories. It also inflames the stomach, liver and pancreas. You need to stop, and most people need help stopping. Talk to your doctor about a referral to a treatment program and get help now. ...Read more

My dad has been throwing up blood, everytime his stomach hurts. And his leg has a big swollen vein that pops out, what could all this be?

Clotted superficial veins are usually tender and this is called superficial phlebitis. Varicose veins are usually not tender. Regardless, either type of vein is not normal. You should see a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation. ...Read more
