I want tips to lose weight with diet and workout - with hypothyroid condition?

The usual way: Burn more calories than you take in. Make sure your thyroid levels are right, usually TSH between lower limit of normal and 3 is best. Exercise program that is 50/50 weights & cardio/aerobic activity is better than either activity alone. Eat high-fiber foods, limit snacks, drink plenty of water, and get 8 hr sleep will help you stick w/ your program. Good luck! ...Read more

If you are not happy about your skin, see a dermatologist to define any abnormality and determine the best way to correct any problems. Don't smoke or abuse drugs. Eat your vegetables. Get exercise & sleep. Don't get sunburned. Multivitamins are greatly over-used to the profit of those who sell them. ...Read more

Does playing football afect one's height growth? And what should a 17yr old's diet contain in order to help him get taller?

Healthy lifestyle: You are most likely to reach your tallest potential height by following a healthy diet, getting appropriate sleep and remaining physically active. There are no exercises that specifically increase height. Football doen not increase or stunt growth.Nothing you eat or drink will add inches.You can stunt your growth by the opposite, poor diet/sleep/inactivity can all take a toll. ...Read more

Im 29, 5.1 height, only 38 kgs v skinny want 2 gain weight please make me a complete proper diet chart of all the high calorie foods I should eat..?

Gaining weight: Gaining weight is not easy for the super skinny! to gain one pound per week, add 500calories extra per day. Take these calories in as protein and carbs. I dont recommend junk food. You can do protein bars (about 250-300cal) two extra per day on top of your regular food. Also try protein smoothies with 2% greek yogurt, protein powder, fruit and nut butters. ...Read more

Creatine and (if okay with your doctor) an electronic muscle stimulator can work wonders for you. Be sure you are getting enough protein; supplements are available, if whey's off-limits there's soy. Many women prefer a lean, sinewy man. Good luck. ...Read more

If HGH levels in my body increase at 17-18 could i possibly get taller following a balanced diet & exercise ?

If HGH levels in my body increase at 17-18 could i possibly get taller following a balanced diet & exercise ?

Probably not: For you to increase in height your bones need to grow and once the growth plates close this is impossible. I am sorry to tell you that generally growth plates close 2-3 years after the start of menstruation so unless you did not start having periods until age 15 your growth plates have closed. Once that happens you can not grow any more no matter how high your hgh levels are. ...Read more
