Follow healthy diet (1200 cals), exercise 6 hrs a week (weights and cardio) but struggle 2 lose weight (hormones & insulin fine).Could it be femodene?

Follow healthy diet (1200 cals), exercise 6 hrs a week (weights and cardio) but struggle 2 lose weight (hormones & insulin fine).Could it be femodene?

Possible, but: It may be that even 1200 calories is too much for you, depending upon your height. The shorter you are, the fewer calories you require. It takes 3500 calories burned off that you don't eat in order to lose one pound. You could also be calculating your calories incorrectly. Check w/a registered dietitian. ...Read more

Does cabbage soup diet work ro lose weight? Any side effects? Any other  certified  fad diet that really work?

Diets: Fad diets are marketing ploys to promote a concept that has more to do with making money than with a well-balanced diet that promotes long-term compliance conducive with a healthy lifestyle. Many of these diets are also low calorie diets. A low calorie diet is a diet that provides extremely low calories in order to produce significant weight loss. They can be unbalanced and cause problems. ...Read more

210pounds 5^2 21yrs old. Considering the 400(or600) calories a day diet. Nutritional diet plan?

Not enough calories: If you drop caloric intake too drastically - you will actually eat up a lot of muscle and drop your metabolic rate. This is NOT a healthy way to lose weight. Consider working with a nutritionist so that you can do this in a healthy way. Take care. ...Read more

I gained 35lb in 6mo. No change to diet/exercise. 1000-1200 calories of a gluten-free, dairy-free, all organic diet. Low WBC, High ALT, .49TSH. Ideas?

I gained 35lb in 6mo. No change to diet/exercise. 1000-1200 calories of a gluten-free, dairy-free, all organic diet. Low WBC, High ALT, .49TSH. Ideas?

Weight gain: When you say low WBC do you know how low? Also what was your T4 level? Sometimes people that are in extreme stressful conditions, poor sleep or high cortisol levels tend to affect your overall adrenal system. It may not be as apparent in a clinical setting but it can be subclinical. Doing things like mediation and yoga and frequent exercise can sometimes push you back to balance. ...Read more

Is a 500 calorie deficit bad for a  16 almost 17 yo guy? He's average weight & Fat. Runs/bikes 1hr and yogo 34 min daily. He wants to lose fat

Sounds ok: If a person eats 500 calories less each day, he can lose 1-2 pounds a week. That sounds ok for a normal person who is exercising, as the exercising helps maintain muscle mass, tone, and strength while he loses some fat. ...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!

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!

Diet: Diet is a key in weight control but when you are so close to ideal body weight you need some exercise to maintain metabolic rate and muscle mass. 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 more

Im an endomorph & im on a high protein diet, 1.5g of protein per pound of bodyweight, 100-150g of good carbs & minimum fats, is this a gd diet plan?

Depends, Prob. Not: If your goal is to build body fat, then yes, otherwise no. Carbs block burning fat, so which are "good". Protein also stimulates Insulin release, Insulin promotes fat storage & high protein can drive higher kidney failure rates, so high questionable. Fats, of natural origin, best evidence of being healthy for humans. Study: "big fat lies", "science for smart people", dietdoctor, lustig, taubes... ...Read more

23yr old female, 10kg overweight, 5'4" height. Sedentary life. Brisk walk 30mins everyday. Pls suggest veg diet.

Low calorie diet: Congratulations on setting on the path to attain a healthy weight. To lose weight the amount of calories you burn must be more than total calories you eat/drink. You have taken the first step which is increasing your exercise. Any diet that will lead you to consume less calories should work (do not forget calories from drinks). Pick any diet plan that you will enjoy and stick with longterm! ...Read more

Will eating a vegetarian diet for 30 days, jumpstart a significant weight loss?

Will eating a vegetarian diet for 30 days, jumpstart a significant weight loss?

Yes, and...: This is a great way to end unhealthy eating habits. Vegetarian fare isn't as greasy / sugary / salty / yummy as the stuff that most of us overeat. Even better -- why not "jumpstart" a whole new lifestyle based on fitness-based activities, as much a choice-of-friends issue as anything? They'll guide you on reprogramming your mind and body for a far better life long-term. ...Read more

Is taking high protein140g/day low carb <150g diet safe?140pd male doing strenuous workouts for health&vanity.

Unsafe, unwise: I believe most extreme diets are unhealthy and unwise and this is a good example. I advise limiting protein to about 70 grams a day. Higher amounts puts stress on the kidneys, can cause osteoporosis and may reduce longevity- esp. if the main source is animal protein. I believe it's not wise to limit all carbs- but it is wise to limit sugars and starches. See http://tinyurl.com/hqxta7c and comment. ...Read more

Workout(1.5 hrs, 1 muscle/day) in morning (with protein supplements and protein rich diet) leads to insomnia. Any explanations/suggestions?

Working out: I'm not sure how it's possible to work out using only 1 muscle per day? I wonder what the contents of your protein supplement actually are -- some contain stimulating substances, which of course could lead to insomnia. Would also need to know what other medications, supplements, or drugs you might be taking. Do you drink caffeinated beverages? ...Read more
