How much does regular intense physical activity contribute to weight gain? I practice with weights 3-4 times/week and wish to gain weight.

To healthy gain: Exercise by itself burns calories. If one's calorie intake stayed the same as when sedentary, one might well lose weight. But with a healthy diet, exercise, especially with weights, converts the food into healthy weight--muscle mass, not fat. It's the best way to go! ...Read more

How can I lose weight after delivery and now breast feeding?

How can I lose weight after delivery and now breast feeding?

Same as everyone: The "lose 3500 calories to drop a pound" idea now is overly simplistic. Disappointing reality is that when you begin to lose weight, your metabolism slows, hormonal &neurologic changes occur. The greater the progress you make the tougher it gets to lose more pounds--your body tries to defend its weight! You have to eat even fewer calories to maintain rate of loss. Ref: Washington Post, 7/29/2 ...Read more

This will give you the information you need to lose wt. ...Read more

Would doing sit ups be enough to lose belly fat and get a six pack along with dieting. And how long would it take?

It doesn't work that: Way. Spot fat loss does not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some will probably be abdominal fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy ; be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed. Tighten ab's: crunches, reverse crunches, exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge ; “bicycling” exercise on back. Do. ...Read more

You need to eat plenty of healthy food and exercise regularly. This will help insure you remain healthy. If you are worried that you may have an illness see your doctor just to be sure. ...Read more

How can an underweight 21 year old trying to gain weight and get in shape lose excess chin and neck fat, and define the jawline?

Fat distribution: Nobody really understands why different people lay down fat in different places or what we can do about it. This would be a great time for you to continue working out hard in the gym; as you pound your body into shape with resistance and aerobic training, your jawline may normalize but you'll surely look great. No body is perfect but you'll have a big plus. ...Read more

What is a method without rigerous exercise at gym and dieting to loose weight and get the bulging tummy within limits?

Cardio Mix: You cannot target specific areas for weight loss - if you have adipose tissue to lose (not everyone does), then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with walking, running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more
