Be sure to eat a balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in the mix. ...Read more
Weight and exercise: It is not necessarily the days but the intensity and length of time you work out relative to the number of calories you consume at each meal and total consumed daily. First you need a goal for ideal weight. Then a time goal to achieve the weight. Instead of weight you might consider a body fat goal. You can achieve faster weight loss utilizing high intensity activity with resistance exercise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It varies.: Dependent upon your weight and body habiitus, the number of calories will need will vary. Men require more than women, larger individuals more than smaller.

It can...: Breastfeeding is great for your baby, & it has also been shown to have many health benefits for mom, too, including faster weight loss postpartum than for someone who is not breastfeeding. This is because most women who breastfeed use about 500 more calories per day than those who don't. BUT you shouldn't lose weight TOO rapidly--that can be unhealthy. Best plan, lose pregnancy weight GRADUALLY. ...Read more
Can you tell me if i want to progress faster physically. Is it good to take whey protein/creatine at 17 years old?
I think so...: With resistance (weight) training. Limit carbs. For fastest results, do the slow carb diet or south beach diet at the same time use your choice of whey protein drinks/powders.

Type of exercise: Aerobic and controlled weight training for 30-40 min per day (preferably at one time to maximize cardiopulmonary conditioning ) is helpful to lose weight along with a carefully planned out calorie reduction strategy . Goal with aerobic activity is to get your hr up to 65-80% maximum (220-age). A 44 yo would have a max hr goal of 176. 65-80% of this would aim to keep hr between 120-140. ...Read more

What to do if i drink muscle milk, but i want to know how many oz can you take in period of 24 hours?
Limited by kidneys: Muscle milk is mostly milk protein; if you take in more than your body can make into things it needs, you urinate out the extra protein. Too much protein in the kidneys can stress them, and not make them work as well. If you already have kidney problems, you definitely need to be careful. For most people, no more than 150-180 grams of protein a day should be taken, depending on weight (2 g/kg). ...Read more
After puberty- can't: If you've completed puberty you aren't likely to grow taller. Girls complete puberty by ages 15 to 17 & for boys it is by ages 16 to 17. However, if one enters puberty late, they will usually also complete it late. Our height is largely determined by genetics (our parents' height). If you are healthy (no unusual causes for stunted growth/ smaller stature) then there is not a way become taller. ...Read more
High protein/low fa: I would recommend a high protein and low fat diet to build lean muscle. You should have some form of protein at every meal, 3 meals/day, with healthy snacks in between. I also would recommend lower weight with more repetitions for lean muscle. "Maxing" out your weight will increase muscle bulk. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Not exclusively: Combinations of aerobic conditioning and strength training, preceded by warm-up and stretching and concluded by cooldown periods are ideal. Don't exercise every day.
