How Much Weight Is Too Much To Gain In A Month
I am 7 months pregnant, and my doctor told me I was gaining too much weight. How much is too much?
Matter of debate:
The old "gain 25-35 lbs" speech really has no basis in fact. Women who are very skinny can stand to gain wait, whereas women who are notably overweight don't need to gain much. So without knowing your weight, it's hard to say. Ask your obgyn why he/she made that comment and to offer you suggestions.
Good luck! ...Read more

Your best weight is what looks and feels best to you while you can compete in the sports you enjoy. Start exercising really hard and you'll look great -- forget numbers. The elite athletes in the photo are all probably "underweight" -- and who's complaining? ...Read more

Exercise burns calories, so if one does not eat or drink more calories than he is using during his exercise, then his body will burn up fat as fuel.
