Try Simethacone: I recommend stop taking Senna plus which obviously isn't working well for you. It is safe to take plain Senna in much higher doses. Start with 4 tablets at bedtime for 1 week, you can increase your daily dose by 2 tablets every week until you find your best dose to have a soft bowel movements everyday (up to 16 tabs). Try Simethacone is you still need something for bloating. ...Read more

Is the "cold water diet" an effective weight loss tool? It's where you only drink water for a couple of days with little or no food

Is the "cold water diet" an effective weight loss tool? It's where you only drink water for a couple of days with little or no food

Not effective: Hi. Negative energy balance (more calories burned than taken in) does cause weight loss, and if you only drink water for a few days, you will be in negative energy balance. But you'll rebound and overeat coming off it. Those diets never work. In fact just about no diet ever works in the long run. If they did, obesity/overweight would not be epidemic. Live healthily. Good luck! ...Read more

consider bariatic Rx: I am not sure what is meant by drinking 1/2 body weight. In general, drinking lots of fluids fills your stomach so that you can be less hungry while dieting. Although any weight loss program is better than nothing, it is highly unlikely that you would lose the amount of weight you need to (probably 200 lbs) without bariatric surgery. In your age group you really need to highly consider this. ...Read more
