How do I speed up metabolism. Low energy post lunch, struggle to drop lbs. Work out twice a week, eat lean meats, sea food. Guilty of carbs, and wine?
Proper breakfast: Look into high intensity interval training, but eating right is key. Try making your first meal a combination of protein and healthy fats (bacon and eggs without the carbs) . The best fats to use are medium chain triglycerides because your body uses them directly for energy and then shifts into fat burning. Also if you avoid carbs your Insulin levels stay low and that inhibits fat storage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

On a low calorie diet, will your body burn muscle before using fat stores for energy eg. Love handles and belly fat?
Energy drinks: Almost all energy drinks, even the sugar free ones have all kinds of ingredients. I wouldn't worry about staining. I would worry about the acids in them that can contribute to tooth decay. I would also worry about all those 'extra' & unnecessary ingredients as well as why you need extra energy from a drink? Reconsider your life style\priorities. I drink bottled water, love it and know it's healthy. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Weight 345 now 331. Heart rate was 70-80's now 50-60's resting. Eating low carb, low fat, low sugar With housework it's 114. Is it safe?
Cautiously: Congratulations on taking a road to better health! I'm surprised your heart rate dropped this much with a 15# weight loss; perhaps you are exercising more/staying active. I'm not worried about that change. I presume you are not on any blood sugar lowering medicine. Your blood sugar should be fine on this diet as long as your daily calorie intake DOES NOT fall below 1000-1200 cal/day. Best wishes:) ...Read more
Was my lunch ok for weight loss or did i screw up?I'm 18 male 5'9 170. One piece whole grain bread, slice onion, slice tomato, 1 avacodo, handful almonds
OK: One meal isn't going to make or break your program- the best way to lose weight is permanent changes in how you eat. Slow ; steady is the way to go. Hard to evaluate your lunch without knowing the rest of your diet but it looks ok. Eat mostly fruits, veggies, nuts ; seeds ; you'll lose weight. I'd have much more tomato/onion that a slice. Whole grains ok in moderation. See http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do weightlifting stunt growth in teenage boys with arm work, squats no deadlift kinda thing, does the body use energy on muscle instead of bone growth?
Not Really: There are areas of bone growth at the end of long bones, called epiphyseal plate(s). This is where we get "height" and "length" of our extremities. It has been shown if young males, particularly, engage in heavy resistance exercise too early, before these plates have fully developed, the length of these long bones can be muted. It is not excessive, meaning a 6'5" male will not become 5'11". ...Read more
10 min isn't sprint: Consider that the world record for a 2 mile run is just under 8 minutes (7:58.61) 10 min at that pace would get 21/2 miles. A frequently stated number for running is 100 calories/mile but factors like speed, body weight etc. Aren't figured into this. So running a pace of 4 minute miles for 10 minutes would burn far more than 250 calories. ...Read more

I heard running/sprinter makes your body burn sugar while jogging or something at a moderate pace burns fat. Help?
