Opinions on "the fast diet" for someone who is 5'2" and 167 lbs and carries their weight internally. Safe to fast with 500 cals 2x a week?
Is there a safe medication that i can take to help me lose weight? I am 5'8" tall, male, and weigh about 185 pounds. I take medication for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and low thyroid.
Med for weight loss: Your stats put you at a bmi of 28.1 which is clearly overweight. Accordingly, i would recommend considering: a) making sure your thyroid is completely and adequately replaced. This means a tsh, free t4, free t3 (liothyronine), (liothyronine) and reverse t3 (liothyronine). All too frequently, docs are guided by TSH only. B) topomax (topirimate) is a medication i frequently use in my patients. It "defizzes" pop and cuts carb cravings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There are no magic bullets in a pill. ...Read more

Multivitamin: There are no special supplements that will fix your high blood pressure but a multivitamin won't hurt you.
