Cardio Mix: Agreed, you can not target the abdomen specifically for weight loss - if you have adipose tissue that you'd like to lose, then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more

I'm a female 19 5'5 and weigh 110lbs. To maintain weight with no/little excercise what diet works. Moderate diet, zone diet, low fat/carb diet ? Help!

Otherwise your body will simply slow metabolic rate and you will not feel or perform well and may not lose weight. More lean muscle burns more calories and makes it easier to keep weight off. If you don't build muscle you may add fat when gaining. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can a person with an endomorph body type change into a mesomorph body type through excercise or is body shape prefer timed through genetics?
Easy to change: The talk about "endomorphs" is subscience from one guy at yale in the early 1900's and has nothing to do with real science.

If you truly have type 2 diabetes, oral therapy may be of help or glp agonist injections -- not just insulin. ...Read more
Just call it FOOD: Lean meats, egg white, some fish, some nuts, etc... and lots of veggies. Some veggies can be raw, others can be cooked... lots of variety! Whole grains like brown rice, corn, etc..., are fine (but not in large amounts). Beans have protein (fruits don't really have protein). If one stretches the definition of veggies, he can even include the "fruit veggies" such as tomatoes, cucumbers. Avoid sugar. ...Read more

Today, a bmi > 35 with medical complications of obesity is required. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
