I want to increase my muscle mass. I understand I must increase my calorie intake, but by how much? Is there a calculator/ formula? I'm 5'6 weigh 158.

I'm 5'2 and im 23 years old. I have two kids. I was 150 before I had my first and now weigh 190. Can I use slimquick and Lipozene together?

Yes, but...: You need to be careful about using "quick fix" products when it comes to weight loss. To lose the weight and keep it off, you need to take in less calories than you expend. There is only 2 ways to do this. You take in less calories or you increase your calorie use through exercise/being more physically active. If you drink 5 slimquicks a day, you are not going to lose weight. Diet/exercise! ...Read more

I am 20 and I have cellulite on my thighs and a little on my butt. What is the reasoning behind this? I don't have kids and I weigh around 130.

No reason: Usually cellulite occurs somewhat older, but there is no way to prevent or really treat it. Stay in good condition with movement and resistance training. Eat real food, like fruits and vegetables. Along with protein. It's a normal occurrence and there's not much you can do about it. Don't let dimpling of your fatty tissue bum you out. ...Read more

20yrs old no kids. 5'0 weigh 110. I hve little stretch marks only a few on the side each thigh. Why is this? Dr said my skin is spreading?

Striae: Striae or stretch marks may follow any period of rapid growth. Even though you're relatively small & thin, there was still a lot of growth over the last few years. Some of this may depend on your own personal tendencies: some people are more prone to develop striae. However, your striae would no doubt have been worse if you had grown more. ...Read more

New carseat rec are rear-facing longer. My kids seats can rear-face til 45lbs- my kids weigh 36 but are 6&4. What is reasonable for micro-preemies?

Question unclear: If your 6 & 4 yo were micro-premies, it never hurts them to be rear facing if the seat is so designed. Protection from the forward head snap & spinal cord stretch is the primary reason for this recommendation. You can see an interesting video at www. Joelsjourney. Com reflecting the neck injury of a 35 lb boy who was forward facing. If you have new micro-premies, a car bed may be in order. ...Read more

I had a kid in oct. Weighing 212 and lost to 186 in nov. Got the Depo-Provera shot in dec. And am now 215 and can't lose down no matter what I do. Please help.

Might be depoprovera: Unfortunately one of the common side effects of Depo Provera is weight gain, more so than any other type of hormonal birth control. You could consider switching to another form of birth control once you have finished the current 3 months. Iud including Mirena (levonorgestrel) don't cause weight gain. Birth control pills seldom result in weight gain. Also decrease carbs, sweets, pop, fruit juice, and exercise. ...Read more
