I've lost 35lbs or 21% of my body weight in the past 10 months. I have not significantly changed my diet or exercise. What could cause it?
Does the body physiologically change as the seasons change to accommodate a change in temperature? (ie: more weight in the fall and winter)
Not Really: Humans live in artificial environments most of the time; we heat our homes in the winter and cool them in the summer. Our "seasons" are not what our ancestors lived through. That said, if we are less active in the winter and more active in the summer, then yes, our bodies will change, but it's due to that phenomenon, not the seasons themselves. ...Read more

I am 36 years old and I feel that since the last three years, I'm getting degenerated fast. I get physically getting fatiguedand there is a rapid change in my body structure. Reason?
B Vitamins: All B vitamins are water soluble and are therefore not stored up in the body and rapidly eliminated, most often by the kidney. Some B vitamins go through a metabolic process in the liver before being excreted by the kidney. It is very difficult to overdose on B vitamins because the body takes what it needs and excretes the rest rather quickly. ...Read more

Now that I'm in menopause, should I be treating my body differently? Eating differently? Please advise. I'm 53 years old, and just entered menopause (have gone one year without a period). What, if anything, should I be doing to address the changed needs
It: It is good that you are thinking about that. One of the biggest problems that can occur after menopause is osteopenia or osteoporosis, or decreased density of the bones. It is important to have a bone density study to see if you are at risk of future fractures. If you are, there are medications that can strengthen your bones. Many physicians advise taking calcium and vitamin d for the bones. A good diet is obviously very important, both for the bones and cardiovascular health. Many women have problems with weight gain during menopause, so exercising every day for at least 30 minutes is beneficial. Also be sure that your mammograms and pap smears are up to date (you will still need a pap smear at regular intervals even after your periods stop). ...Read more
