Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week.

Need to lose weight but it is verry difficult. I did try before.Really i can't. My BMI is 36, 5 please for advise?
Exercise: Exercise is a guaranteed solution. You need to burn 500 calories more than you consume every day and you will lose about 1 lb a week. If this isn't working, then it's worth having your physician check your thyroid/other labs to assure you aren't fighting an uphill battle. The fact that you're frustrated is a good sign - you're trying.. I lost 100lbs and know how terribly challenging it is. ...Read more

Hi i would like to lose weight but my biggest problem is not liking the things I am post to eat what can I do?
See Dr., and then...: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more
Is it safe to lose weight by not eating if i take multi-vitamins? I am trying to lose weight. If i only don't eat, or only eat one meal a day, will i lose weight and still be healthy? Some people say i won't get enough nutrients, so I am taking multi-vita
It : It is not likely that you will have sustained weight loss just from fasting. This is because your body will interpret this as starvation and will "hold on for dear life" to the fat in your body to keep you going. Vitamins are not enough nutrition to prevent this problem. Eating only once a day probably also will not be effective. I have heard that sumo wrestlers actually make themselves gain weight by eating only twice a day, getting hungry between meals. What happens specifically with eating very little (one of the ways the body adapts to calorie restriction) is that your thyroid metabolism changes, so that the T4 made by your thyroid gland converts to reverse T3 (liothyronine) instead of the active T3 (liothyronine) that your body needs to function. This is nature's way of protecting us from starvation. Anything your body interprets as "physiologic stress" will cause this phenomenon, including dieting, depression or illness. This is why an effective diet program must include enough total calories and balanced nutrition (complex carbohydrates, protein and fat) to give your body what it needs while inducing a fat-burning state. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If i was to starve my self for exactly one week, how much weight would i loose? will i lose mostly muscle weight?
Starvation: If you starve yourself all that happens is your body goes into starvation mode and says" I do not know where my next meal is coming from. " and stops burning up fat and starts to slow down metabolism. The best way to loose wt is a controlled reduction of calories and a good exercise program ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Im breastfeeding and wondering if its ok if i take sensa i can't loose I've starting counting calories but its hard for me to stay on a diet. With sensa you just sprinkle it on your food.
There : There are no clear safety data on sensa in pregnancy because it is a supplement not strictly regulated by the fda. There is also no evidence from rigorous clinical trials that this product does anything besides lightening your wallet. In short, it is, i think, bogus and of no value for weight loss. See these web page below for some websites and info that may be of help in guiding your weight loss. ...Read more

Slow down: It is not healthy to lose weight that fast. You want to aim for about one kg per week. Cutting back on carbohydrates is the best way to lose weight.

Check out some of the healthtap checklists on healthy diets. ...Read more
