How long will it take me realistically to get from 89kilos to 65kilos what should I eat how much should I exercise?

Very difficult: To answer in this 400 character or less format. A realistic weight loss plan would be to aim to lose 1-2 lbs per week. Otherwise, remember - while it's important to eat healthy - it's also important to focus on caloric restriction for weight loss purposes. Also, while exercise provides some many benefits and can help with weight loss, data suggests caloric restriction is key with weight loss. ...Read more

Unprotected sex: While losing enough weight to reach body mass index 20-25 is ideal especially when attempting to get pregnant, there is no specific amount to lose to guarantee pregnancy. With that said, talk to your family doc and/or obstetrician about your desire for conception. Start taking prenatal vitamins now to lower risk for neural tube defects. Enjoy unprotected sex. Eat right & exercise regularly. ...Read more

Help, how much calories should I do if i want to loose 5 pounds a week.?

5 lbs weight loss: In one week is dangerous. You should strive for about 2 pounds per week for a healthy and sustainable weight loss. Depending on your caloric needs now (what your body burns based on job, lifestyle, and activity--everybody is different), you should reduce intake by about 10% and increase (or start) exercise as well. Gradual loss is healthy; rapid loss is not, and cannot be maintained either! ...Read more

Abdominal distention: Abdominal distention is a very non-specific sign in gastroenterology. For you, your distention sounds very prominent and noticeable? Abdominal distention beyond the normal variance may indicate malabsorption or mal-digestion. I would bring this up to your md and ask to check your stools and possibly check do a blood screen for celiac disease. Again, distention is very non-specific. ...Read more

My daughter weighs 276 lbs. She is 8weeks and 3 days pregnant and was diagnosis with gestational dibetes today. What  is a good diet menu to get this control?

Whole foods: Simple sugars and processed carbs should be avoided or limited. This includes any flour product. The fine grind makes absorption quick, and spikes your blood sugar which increases Insulin and promotes weight gain. Good fats such as olive oil and coconut oil are fine in sensible amounts. Eat a huge rainbow of organic vegetables and 3-4 oz protein with each meal 5 hours apart. ...Read more

I don't know if this is medical or not. But i'm wondering if it's possible to get pregnant even if you're not ovulating. I learned that if you have unprotected sex, no matter what day of the month it is, you will get pregnant.

Ovulation allows egg: to release - so female must be capable of ovulation. Chances to become pregnant are best around time of ovulation. However, because of irregularity - it is not always possible to know when ovulation will occur (it is usually 14 days before an anticipated period). Also a female with a long period and a short cycle might become pregnant at end of period. Use protection to avoid pregnancy. ...Read more

Depends: Hcg is the "trigger" shot for ovulation. It is used primarily to time ovulation in fertility treatment cycles.

Is to much protein bad? I want to gain weight I'm 23 5'1 and weigh 112 I want to get at 125

Too much protein.: It's OK to increase your protein intake, within limits of course. Your body does not require more than one gram of protein per kilogram of body weight, so in your case you should be eating no more than say 50 grams of protein daily, divided across four of five small meals, with fruits, vegetables and whole grains. And choose lean protein sources. Gaining weight is different than gaining fat. ...Read more

I have habit of eating raw rice frequently im NT able to control myself..! planning to get pregnant n m scared if it will effect bad? any solution?

A habit to break...: Raw rice won't harm your pregnancy unless it is contaminated with a germ that can harm your pregnancy. When rice is cooked, all the germs are killed and its the best way to eat rice when you are pregnant. You should work on breaking this habit prior to "trying" to get pregnant. Get help from a therapist if you can't do it on your own. Best wishes! ...Read more
