High fiber foods: Eating high fiber foods is a good way to prevent weight gain and encourage weight loss. This is because high fiber foods have low glycemic index, which does not trigger high Insulin release from the pancreas, which causes the body to store fat. Stay away from white bread or rice, pastries, sodas with sugar or high-fructose corn syrup as they quickly elevate blood sugar levels and Insulin release. ...Read more

If only that easy...: Body sculpting sounds promising (& there are gimmicks &diets that promise you their products can do this), but the only way to effectively spot-reduce unwanted tissue is to surgically remove it. The "pear" body type preferentially stores fat around the hips; "apples" store it around their waist. Calorie count, exercise -- but no quick fix otherwise. Good luck with second part of your question. ...Read more

I have heard that the best way to lose weight is to do it by healthy eating and exercise but is there another faster way?

Intake and output: There are many ways to lose weight and the best way is through regular exercise and healthy eating. It's all about the calories that go in and the calories that one burns.

Focus more on health and lab results than the number on the scale. Walking can be a great benefit also. You can do it. Low carb under doc supervision can be good. I wish there were a quicker way but slow and steady works best. ...Read more

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

Strength training!: You are - unbelievably - at age age where you'll soon start to lose muscle mass. This is sad, because muscle requires more calories just to sit there! if you build up your muscle mass through strenth training: weights, resistance exercises, resistance bands, you will build muscle and require more calories. You'll lose weight more easily - or you'll get to eat more with fewer consequences! lgromko. ...Read more

Is it helpful to do weight training even when I have fat still to lose? Will it help with weight loss or just make me bigger and bulky?

Will help: Weight training will most definitely help with weight loss. Not only will you burn calories during your lifting or other muscle building exercise, YOU WILL BURN MORE CALORIES ALL DAY LONG. THAT'S BECAUSE MUSCLE REQUIRES MORE CALORIES TO MAINTAIN ITSELF. For every 22 pounds of muscle added to your body you burn an extra 100 calories a day just sitting and will loose 10.5 pounds of fat in a year. ...Read more

For : For all surgery there is some loss of sensation along the incision. In general, the area of loss is limited, and the loss of sensation improves with time. For the tummy tuck, same as the front part of a body lift, the sensation is usually decreased below the belly-button down to the incision. This is because the skin is moved from above the belly button, and the nerves are stretched or cut in order to provide the flattest possible result. The area of numbness decreases in size over time, and improves noticeably during the months after surgery. Often, only a small area of numbness remains just over the middle of the scar. Since we are not often testing if objects are hot, cold or sharp with our belly, it is not some thing that most patients complain about. ...Read more
