Can I lose weight by doing home exercises from an app with diet? Eg: knee highs, jumping jacks, push ups, crunches etc. 310lbs 5'3" 22 yrs female.

Yes, but at your: height, weight and age, you'll have to consider more of a lifestyle change. The major trick to losing weight is to eat less calories than you burn, eat good foods (not junk), drink plenty of water and exercise. There is considerable debate over what constitutes "good" foods, e.g., Paleo vs. low fat diets, but regardless, stick to these basics. You might need to be in a weight loss program. ...Read more

Do not distress!: You have started exercising w/ a trainer. You are doing everything right. You are probably gaining muscle at a faster rate than your a losing fat. It is a simultaneous process, except muscle weighs more than fat. This is normal and reassuring. The good news is that this muscle metabolizes more glucose. This is just the beginning investment time - the payoff is coming! keep going with your program! ...Read more

Safe but also need:: There is no pill that will help without diet changes that you can maintain.

Is acupuncture helpful in losing weight?

Is acupuncture helpful in losing weight?

Probably not: If a person snacks or eats more when he is stressed out, then acupuncture might lower stress and decrease eating. If he is at the acupuncture clinic, then he is not at the grocery store, the bar, or the restaurant, so he may be eating fewer calories. However, if he eats the same or more calories after starting acupuncture as before, then he will probably have no weight change or get even heavier. ...Read more

I've gained 60 lbs on Trazadone, Seroquel (quetiapine) and Klonopin. I want to try green coffee bean extract due to being tired all day. Is it safe? I'm desperate

I've gained 60 lbs on Trazadone, Seroquel (quetiapine) and Klonopin. I want to try green coffee bean extract due to being tired all day. Is it safe?  I'm desperate

Med weight gain: Agree with others skeptical of green coffee bean extract for weight loss. Seroquel (quetiapine) is most likely cause for weight gain. Review with prescribing doctor to consider tapering and trying alternative at lowest dose possible less likely to cause weight gain. Weight gain from Seroquel (quetiapine) is reversible. Meantime, eat healthy, avoid junk food, limit alcohol and exercise as much as possible. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Diet Fads: A curse?: In life it seems that every few months a new wonder diet drug or drink or product will appear that makes it's sellers rich but never makes any of the customers thin. Green tea extract is a gimmick. Please be wise. Low calorie and low carbohydrate diets with good and regular exercise will make you thinner. Please learn now. These fads are just that: fads to be avoided. ...Read more
