Hi i had a question, i used to be 380 pounds and i've lost about 150 pounds through dieting and moderate exercise over a course i tried eating very small meals (only one meal a day) with an hour of walking on the treadmill to see if i could tighten or loo
First : First you need to be congratulated on your amazing accomplishment. My first bit of advise is that you should definitely meet with a nutritionist to come up with a workable long term plan. Eating 1 meal a day sets you up for weight regain, because your metabolic rate has likely been turned down greatly. As far as your attempts at "spot" training in the gym with goals of weight loss in one specific area of your body, this simply is a myth that doesn't work. Don't be discouraged, no human body is able to lose weight in one specific area. This is usually an "all or none" phenomenon. As you lose fat, it will disappear everywhere, but at genetically predetermined rate. This is why for some people the issue i love handles vs. Thighs vs. Belly fat. Most important thing you should do is accept the new lifestyle you have chosen and make sure you eat at least 3 to 4 normal sized healthier meals a day. This will minimize your chance of weight regain. ...Read more

Is there a way to test cells, blood, etc to know if you gained a lot of weight (for example, 20 pounds) in the last couple of months?
No: You don't need a blood test. You need a scale. You stand on it and it tells you how much you weigh. You compare that with how much you weighed two months ago and with a little simple math you figure out how much weight you've gained. Anther way to find out if you've gained weight is if your clothes feel too tight compared to two months ago. But that won't tell you the exact amount of weight gain. ...Read more
