I'm overweight and have asthma. When I try to work out I get winded really fast. What are my best options?

Control the weight: Overweight asthmatics find that their asthma is much more difficult to control, and are frustrated that they can't exercise enough to lose weight. Please read "Why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubes. This explains that exercise is NOT the way to lose weight. Developing a low-carb diet is much more effective. You'll find that your asthma will be much easier to control once you get your BMI under 30 or 25. ...Read more

My breasts are quite small so there is not much fatty tissue there. I am also slightly overweight. If I lose weight will my breasts become smaller?

Unlikely: If you lose weight it will mostly be due to reduction of fatty tissue; since you don't have much in your breast it's likely that it will not change much with weight loss. It sounds like you might be concerned about having small breasts; while popular culture puts a premium on big breasts, many people find small breasts attractive. That said, the herb puereria mirifica can increase breast size. ...Read more
