I : I believe you are more concerned ( and frustrated) with failing to lose weight than you are by the scale moves up and down by several pounds. You would not be upset, i would guess if the scale kept showing lower numbers with your effort. Weight loss is difficult. If you are not losing then you are taking in and burning up around the same amount of calories. Multiple steps are needed to make progress. I suggest you consider tracking calories and activity using an online site or joining a program such as weight watchers. Fluid shifts can explain changes in weight during the day. By the way, most experts do not recommend reducing meat intake to reduce kidney stone recurrence. An analysis of your urine from a 24 hours collection usually guides changes in diet, and need for medication. If you have uric acid stones, you may have an acid urine or might excrete too much uric acid. The treatment is usually medication which works better than restricting meat intake. ...Read more

I weigh 359 pounds and am looking to start walking daily, from a doctors stand point how long should I walk a day.

Walking: From a doctor's perspective walking is the best form of exercise. One must walk vigorously enough to raise the heart rate and then keep the heart rate fast enough (usually 120 beats per minute to 140 bpm) for at least twenty minutes at a time. If one cannot speak in a full sentence while walking they are working too hard. If one's heart rate is too high they will not burn fat. ...Read more

Not alone: The key to losing weight is a combination of eating less (note; not starvation) and exercising more.

Combining this with sensible eating habits (may wish to try weight watchers or other group programs)! ...Read more
