I'm 19, 5'3-5'4 and weigh about 140 how many calories do I need to consume a day to maintain weight and how many to lose weight?
2242 Calories/day: Firstly, your height and weight yield a body mass index (BMI) of 24.8 - very healthy, congratulations! Secondly, you didn't state how active you are - couch potato? On the soccer team? Assuming lightly active (usual school and household activities plus, say, walking ~2 miles, or 4000 steps a day), you can eat 2242 Cal/day. Less than that loses weight, at rate of 3500 Cal to lose 1 pound. Helps? ...Read more

Check for hidden bleeding from stomach ulcers. Ask a Dr to assess why you are anemic. Recheck levels in a month. ...Read more
Three questions in: one, and all requiring some expertise in physical matters. So, start with your GP, then a dietician, then a behavioral specialist. (I personally had sinus infections for years from allergies. Then I discovered a Sinus Rinse product which is stronger than the Netti Pot, and use it every day. No more sinus problems. It's OTC but check with your doc first.) ...Read more
Zyprexa (olanzapine) weight gain how to get it off and how much can I eat in a day to lose. I'm 6 ft 2 and weigh 190 i want to be 170.
Alternative medicine: At your height of 74", 190 pounds does not seem to me to be an extremely excessive amount of weight gain; but in any case, weight gain associated with zyprexa will probably not improve until the zyprexa is stopped regardless of reasonable dietary restrictions. Alternative medications to discuss with your doctor that would be less likely to cause weight gain are Abilify and geodon (ziprasidone). ...Read more
Consider bariatric: Dietary changes alone for 6 months , expect 5% wt loss of 280# = 14#s. This is what diet will do for you at best: 14#s lost after 6 months of dieting. If you keep steady loss, it will take 3 years. If you do diet and behavioural changes: it may be 10-15%, so roughly 2 years. For what you are aiming (30%); bariatric surgery may be a realistic option. ...Read more
