Can You Gain Weight Binging Two Days
Nothing magical: There's nothing magically added to a weight watcher's meal except they control the calories and portion size. Weight loss all comes down to calories in versus calories out. If you eat 10 frozen meals a day, it won't help. If you add a bunch of snacks in between and a soda or sugary drink, it won't help. But if this is included as part of an overall sensible diet, it can aid in weight loss. ...Read more
How much weight a woman can gain while ovulating and cycle, when is this gain expected? Can clotting and heavy periods cause bloating and weight gain all the time, I just can't loss weight

But, this is just a small amount and is not the cause of overall difficulty losing weight. See doctor to review nutrition, exercise, other health/metabolism issues that might need intervention. ...Read more
No: It takes about 3500 calories to gain one pound. That's a lot. The key to weight control is consistency. One occassional "cheat day" shouldn't make a difference. On the other hand, if a person is gaining water weight by retaining fluid, that can be the sign of a more serious condition with the heart or the kidneys and should be evaluated by the appropriate medical specialist. ...Read more

How to increase your metabolism to lose weight if you started gaining a lot of weight after menopause?
Exercise: There are no pills, hormones, or supplements that can increase your metabolism, unless you have a medical problem (such as hypothyroidism).

I recommend walking the equivalent of 15 miles weekly or bicycling 45 miles weekly (the speed doesn't matter) ...Read more
Fasting and Death: Hi this is an interesting question. I strongly would advise against conducting this experiment. Going more than a week without some nutrition can put you at significant risk of dying. I would hesitate to guess how much weight one would lose given this scenario, but would caution that you may lose your life if you conduct this experiment. Weight loss is hard work. But, it is worth it! ...Read more

Yes: You can gain weight anytime during the menstrual cycle. If you asking if ovulation can cause weight gain, then the answer is sort of. After you ovulate you produce more Progesterone which leads to retention of water (bloating) which can cause a woman to gain some weight. This weight will be lost with the end of the cycle when progesterone levels reduce back to normal. ...Read more

There is always hope and help. Good luck to you. ...Read more
Remember: In the short term, it's not so much what your eating but how much. Plenty of single participant cases of very unhealthy diets like the McDonald's Diet, the Twinkie Diet, for short periods(on the order of a month) have yielded significant weight loss and improved CV indices but a long term nutritionally unsound. Weight is related to calories in vs calories out, not necessarily the quality of cals ...Read more
Will i gain weight by eating more protein? I want to consume 1g per pound (134) including weight training. How can I do so without gaining weight?

To avoid weight gain when taking in more protein, you would either have to reduce other calories taken in or burn more calories. Beware of taking in too much protein, which is not great for your kidneys. Thank you. ...Read more
