I am 132 lbs. I wanna lose 10 lbs with a balanced diet how much bottles (0.5L)should I drink a day and is exercising 30 minutes to lose for 2 months

Weight loss: This is simple mathematics. Take in less than you use up. Eat three small meals a day, eliminate snacks, soft drinks, junk food. Drink 4-5 8 ounces glasses of water and exercise regularly. You will lose weight, but how rapidly will depend upon your adherence to the regimen and the amount that you exercise. Good luck. ...Read more

Is perrier bottle water okay to drink twice a day?

Is perrier bottle water okay to drink twice a day?

Yes: Drink it as often as you like and can afford! Don't forget to recycle the bottle! By the way, if you trust your local tap water, there are also carbonation devices that will add fizz to your water at lower price point than perrier. I'm not a connoisseur by any means so I'm satisfied by faux perrier. ...Read more

Is drinking 3 full bottles of 2 Liters water in one day, normal?

Is drinking 3 full bottles of 2 Liters water in one day, normal?

A bit excessive: 6-8 glasses of water daily is a suggested average intake for water for an average sized adult, so 6 liters would be more than this requirement. If you think your average daily water intake has increased a lot recently, this can be an early sign of diabetes, and it would be a good idea to check in with your doctor and have a morning fasting glucose level and perhaps a Hemoglobin A1C level checked ...Read more

Is 4 16.9 oz bottles of water a day too much water? I drink this every day and sometimes more every single day.

Is 4 16.9 oz bottles of water a day too much water? I drink this every day and sometimes more every single day.

Why?: Why are you drinking water? There is no real benefit, unless you suffer from kidney stones. If you are physically active and live in a warm climate, you may need a lot of water to replace sweat losses. The best guide to water intake is your thirst. Listen to your body. ...Read more

Should I be concerned if I drink 5 bottles of water each day. 16.9 fl oz (1.05pt) 500ml each bottle. Is it bad?

Should I be concerned if I drink 5 bottles of water each day. 16.9 fl oz (1.05pt) 500ml each bottle. Is it bad?

Probably not: However, are you drinking 5 bottles of water because you are thirsty or because someone thought it was a good idea? Unless you have a history of kidney stones, you should be fine to drink somewhat less than 2.5+ liters of fluids (5 bottles of water + other sources of water). For most patients, a total daily intake of 2L of fluids should be more than adequate. ...Read more

I'm a 23 year old female and I weigh around 138 lbs if I drink three ensures or nutriments a day will that help me gain weight?

I'm a 23 year old female and I weigh around 138 lbs if I drink three ensures or nutriments a day will that help me gain weight?

Probably, but why?: For a woman in her twenties, 138 lbs sounds normal (but that depends on her height, and what she has been weighing over the past 12 months). In general, we doctors like to do things the natural way, meaning we prefer weight gain by eating nutritious foods that are part of a balanced diet. Balanced means a good variety of foods. Ensure comes in a can, but if needed, it will increase one's weight. ...Read more

Hi my weight is 43 kgs and I aim for a weight of around 50 kgs. How much ensure drink should I take per day and for how many months?

Why not gaining lbs?: A rule of thumb--to gain 1 pound eat 3000 calories more than your body normally burns. A bigger question is why are you having difficulty gaining weight? Have you explored with your doctor the possibility of undernutrition, hyperthyroidism, malabsorption and maldigestion, infection, altered GI tract function, eating disorders, inflammatory conditions, and malignancy? Pursue evaluation please. ...Read more

I'm looking to lose weight I wanted to know if drinking ensure twice a day, morning/afternoon would help at all or if it would have any benefit?

I'm looking to lose weight I wanted to know if drinking ensure twice a day, morning/afternoon would help at all or if it would have any benefit?

Probably not best. .: But probably not particularly harmful. There are 220 calories in an 8 oz Ensure along with 9 grams of protein, a fair share of vitamins & minerals & fairly low in fat. So if you had 2 of these a day, that would be 440 calories in reasonable nutrition. You need to calculate what your reduced daily calorie goal is for weight loss, and make sure the remaining # of calories you eat are healthy. ...Read more

Thanks for previous answers. I was diagnosed with prostititis. I drink 5 (16.9 ounce) bottles of Propel a day. Is that too much artificial sweeter?

Should I be worried tht I drink at least 15 to 25 bottles of water a day and only output once or twice a day at the most and sometimes don't even go?

Should I be worried tht I drink at least 15 to 25 bottles of water a day and only output once or twice a day at the most and sometimes don't even go?

See MD: Though water output is the most through urination, we also lose is through breathing, sweating and a very small amount usually through defecation. Still, it seems that your intake is out of proportion to your output unless you are exercising ANS sweating a tremendous amount. What may be more telling is the color - if it isn't light yellow or nearly clear then there is a problem. See your md. ...Read more

It's ok: Let's put it this way. 2-3 bottles of iced tea a day is probably not going to hurt you. The thing you worry about with increasing intake is the caffiene exposure. 'All things in moderation' is a good adage to live by. ...Read more
