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

Get yourself: Checked for hormonal imbalance that could contribute to the irregularity of your menstrual periods. Being overweight can stimulate overproduction of estrogen from your adipose tissue, which will cause prolonged amenorrhea (lack of menstrual flow). Try to lose 10 lbs to see if your period will improve. At least it is a way to motivate yourself. ...Read more

On risperdal (0.5 mg). Gained 5 lb less than one month. Concerned about too much weight gain. What can I do? Any advice? Change med? Diet and exercise

Consult your Doctor: Your doctor may recommend changing medications, there are several with similar effects and some are less likely to cause weight gain than others.
However, if Risperdal is working to control the symptoms it is supposed to be treating, you may want to discuss a diet and exercise plan with your doctor as well. ...Read more

Just joined diet bet- I gotta lose 4% body weight in 1month (for me that's about 5 lbs).But I do a lot of daily resistance+mat exercises to build muscle. How do I continue with these w/o gaining too much muscle mass for a month? Or is that impossible

Can be done: If a person eats 500 daily calories LESS, than she has been eating to maintain her stable but undesired weight in the recent past, and if she continues her typical light exercise routine, she should notice a 1 pound drop in weight each week and should gradually approach her lower desired weight. ...Read more

I had sex 4 months ago, I had my periods but I gained too much weight and I have nausea. I can be pregnant and continue with menstrual periods?

I had sex 4 months ago, I had my periods but I gained too much weight and I have nausea. I can be pregnant and continue with menstrual periods?

Yes: It's rare, but I've definitely had patients tell me that they had regular periods during their pregnancy. If you're at all worried, a home pregnancy test should provide an answer. If you're not pregnant, you may want to examine other causes for weight gain or nausea. Thyroid problems, changes in daily activity. Get a urine pregnancy test, first, though so you know if that's the cause. ...Read more

Abnormal cycles: Without a menstrual flow for 4 months can cause thickening of the uterine lining. When the lining becomes thick enough, then your menstrual flow can become heavy, prolonged and associated with more cramping. Of course, I would check to make sure you are not pregnant. ...Read more

My age is 28, I am under weight, I am getting the calories like my other colleaugues, why I can't gain weight? Even, if I eat too much.

My age is 28, I am under weight, I am getting the calories like my other colleaugues, why I can't gain weight? Even, if I eat too much.

Maybe it's okay: "ideal weight" is subscience at best. Many women prefer a light-framed man, and very few men really want any bodyfat. 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

Can too much exercise lead to weight gain?

If a body-builder: Very hard for exercise to increase weight unless one is a body-builder. 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. However, if a person drinks a large orange juice (about 300 calories) while exercising, and exercises away only 200 calories, he will still get fatter even though he's exercising. ...Read more
