See Dr., and then...: 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

A1C is 5.8. Bmi and cholesterol are great. I'm 5'2" 119 pounds. What's the best approach to lowering A1c? Diet or exercise? Do I need a full diet?

A1C is 5.8. Bmi and cholesterol are great. I'm 5'2" 119 pounds. What's the best approach to lowering A1c? Diet or exercise? Do I need a full diet?

A1c: A1c is OK as is. How often do you have it checked? Is it always 5.8 or lower, or is it sometimes higher? 5"2 and 119 pounds is OK but don't overdo exercise. You might also need a better diet. I would have your primary doctor refer you to a dietitian and I think you will be pleasantly surprised. If I have missed something please let me know. ...Read more

My weight is 66kg now. I want to reduce it to 60 kgs over a period of one year from now. Can I do that even my BMI is average? What is the best method

My weight is 66kg now. I want to reduce it to 60 kgs over a period of one year from now. Can I do that even my BMI is average? What is the best method

Slow and consistent : Losing 6 kg(~13 lb) over a one year period of time is reasonable. That is only a decrease of about 3500 calories a month or a little over a 100 calories a day. Start by reducing or eliminating any high calorie drinks such as soda, juice or alcohol. Start a consistent walking program, minimize fast food, concentrate on whole foods: lean meat, veggies and fruit. Have a cheat meal every now and then. ...Read more

My BMI is 18 but i still have slight belly fat. Are there any exercises to reduce the fat without reducing my BMI so that it is too low.

My BMI is 18 but i still have slight belly fat. Are there any exercises to reduce the fat without reducing my BMI so that it is too low.

One program that: Exercises your abdominal muscles. You lose fat by losing weight (3500 calories to the pound) but it is difficult to tell your body when to pull the fat from. Abdominal exercise can improve the muscles in your abdomen below the fat, and improve your physique. If you are overweight, you often are Insulin resistant, and the weight is stored in your abdomen. Overall weight loss will help. ...Read more
