Different situations: Weight loss it s not as easy at it seems. If someone is morbid obese it is very difficult to exercise so burning calories it s almost impossible. Also lack of motivation is another reason. Healthy food is more expensive than junk food and requires time for cooking. If you want to loose 6 or 8 pounds this can be achieved with diet exercise and motivation. When you want to loose 50-60 pounds is hard. ...Read more

Triglycerides tested high despite exercise, healthy diet. I'm also not overweight. How do I lower triglycerides?
High triglycerides: How high? Over 1,000? 500 300 or what? First time Dxed? What other lipid numbers do you have ? What other meds if any are u on? Does it run on your family?

400 lbs, 5'9". Perfect blood pressure & blood sugar. High insulin and testosterone levels. Abnormal weight gain since childhood. Strict diet. Why????
Other Labs?: I hope your thyroid has been checked and is normal. Although typically those with low thyroid causing weight gain are short and you are rather tall!

Drink only water, eat 8 fruits and veggies daily and ramp exercise to 10,000 steps daily ...Read more

Is a low carb diet for insulin resistance/losing weight okay? Im focusing on protein, healthy fats and, if any, its healthy carbs (I dont eat bread).
Def not alone: It's much harder for women. You can see it on biggest loser. With diet it's scary how few calories we need. You might have to learn to count calories with weight watchers or lose-it app. I assume you've already cut down on sweets, starches and animal fat. Some moderate weightlifting can help your muscles burn more calories for you even while you sleep. ...Read more
