Diet Exercise Program
Refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

Please tell me how long it takes for to get noticeable results when starting a diet/exercise program?
It depends: On the program. The more carefully you eat, the more consistently (not vigorously) you train, the more rested you are the quicker results will begin to show. Remember, results will show more quickly for people who (1) don't have a lot of weight to lose, (2) eat healthfully, (3) and are in better general shape initially. That said, dramatic results can occur in a matter of weeks! ...Read more
I've had my t-lvls checked twice, 404ng/ml and 398ng/ml. This may be normal range, but is it normal for a 28yr/old with a good diet/exercise program?
Testosterone level: It is a normal testosterone level, but I am not sure why it was done. If it was done "just because", it's a worthless test. If you had symptoms that mandate the check of testosterone, then it's a different story. Testosterone levels are variable, too. So, if you had 2 in the normal range, I would not worry about that. ...Read more
I have been on a diet/exercise program since 1/1/ and lost 10lbs, goal is 15lbs more. I'm also nursing a baby. Is it true nursing causes fat storage?
Why have I gained 3-4 lbs in a short time when my diet, exercise program or cycle is not to blame? I take calcium citrate and antihistamines daily.?
An MD: Visit might put one's mind at ease. Coexisting medical conditions often require an adjustment of any conditioning program to lower the potential risks. That said, the best program will be the one that will (1) allow for consistent engagement (usually based on one's interest) and that (2) supports the desired goals. Strength, aerobics, endurance, and/or any combination. ...Read more

Programs: Like p90, p90x, etc. And several other in-home dvd programs attempt to engage all muscle groups to stimulate growth, increase aerobic capacity and improve endurance.

I started a strict diet and exercise program 2 months ago and am seeing little results. I eat 1500 calories a day andwalk 7 miles or do other moderate cardio everyday. I think I lost maybe 10 lbs. What should I do?
Results?: Are you trying to lose more weight or redistribute your weight to create more muscle? 1500 cal may be insufficient for your activity level. In that case, your body will store fat and lose muscle mass. If 15500 were too much (doubtful) you'd also be losing both fat and muscle. Best to calculate your bmr+caloric intake needs for your exercise level=your needs. Track on myfitnesspal. Try it! ...Read more

Enjoy your exercise: It does not have to be trendy! Good old walking is simple and inexpensive. Be as brisk as you can for 30 to 45 minutes. Any other aerobic activity you enjoy such as biking, dancing, swimming, climbing are also good. Also toning and building your muscle with lighter weights (so that you can comfortably do more reps) increases your metabolism, helps weight loss and is heart healthy. ...Read more

Exercise starting: First, an evaluation by a healthcare professional, either a trainer, or your doctor. At 38, you could have some undiagnosed medical conditions. High blood pressure, arthritis, elevated cholesterol, back problems...which all could affect an exercise program. Second, start slow. Low impact. Short amount of time. Many get frustration by expecting results too fast. Try to do too much, too quickly. ...Read more
Move: Unless your workplace has an exercise facility, this can be difficult. Get up and walk as much as possible, take the stairs whenever given the chance. Take some time at lunch to get in a quick trip to the gym. Another good tip is to not snack on many of the goodies that often are around. Before you know it, the calories have added up! ...Read more
A gym or walk: I have noticed that a lot of big corporations have now added a gym in the building. Employees can now work out before or after work or during lunch. Employers have noticed more productivity by those employees who work out. There is more blood flow to the brain so they are sharper on the job. If you work for a smalller company, a walk around the parking lot may help. Also, take the stairs! ...Read more
Resistance/protein: Weight traning is the best way to gain muscle. Muscle is more dese than fat, so you might lose inches, but gain weight. Eat protein (an amount the size of one fist once a day and two fists once a day, three fists total) start lifting weights taht are 25% of your body weight every other day and increase 10% every 3 weeks. 6-9 reps per lift. ...Read more
Cardio start up: Length of cardio at your beginning of a program depends upon your present level of conditioning (muscle, heart, muscle adaptations, CV adaptions to physical exercise), AND intensity of what you do. My personal perspective based on experience is start with 15-20 min of moderate cardio exertion. Pace carefully. Warm up for 3-4 min, slow down for 5 min. Steady cardio for 15 min. Add 5 min ev. 2 wks ...Read more
Aerobics: Aerobics like brisk walking, running, or cycling can often help lower blood pressure.

Also ask your doctor if it's safe for you to do resistance training. That may help as well. ...Read more
