What diet pill can I take to lose weight quite off the waist! Any diet pills I can take for that?

Waist fat: If you have fat especially around your waist, it's a cue to look at the kind of food you're eating. You may be eating more processed foods and sugars than your body is good with, or drinking more alcohol too. There are no pills for spot reduction around the waist. Instead you need an entire food and exercise program to make overall changes in your body. Sorry! nutritionists & trainers can help.

I am 42. What is the fastest healthy way to lose weight through exercise. I am concerned about weight in stomach area and generally around waist area.?

I am 42. What is the fastest healthy way to lose weight through exercise. I am concerned about weight in stomach area and generally around waist area.?

Slow, steady success: The fat around the middle is unhealthy not just as added weight but as indicator of possible decline in health if it persists. Weight loss programs in general will cause loss of pounds through generalized weight loss--all over. Exercise programs can strengthen the ab and oblique muscles, enhancing shape of the waistline. The fastest way is to start today eating less at dinner then going for a walk.

I want to lose weight from my stomach and thighs. Will a waist twisting disc benefit this?

No.: There is no exercise which can cause you to lose weight from a focused area. These exercises may build muscles in the intended areas, but can't direct focal fat loss. Overall aerobic exercise will help lose weight in general.

Lifestyle change: Best meal plan is a balanced one you can live with lifelong. If not eating enough protein, you could be losing weight from muscle, not fat - NOT good. Exercise is very important to keep muscle. Source of info for healthy diet & high protein food is http://www. Choosemyplate. Gov/weight-management-calories/weight-management. Html. The Mediterranean diet is a healthy diet, w plenty of info on the web.

Keep breast feeding: There are calories in breast milk for the baby, supplement less and more calories will go to baby. Count your own calories as part of a weight loss project. Exercise is very useful for shaping back to your shape before the baby.

I want to lose two inches around my waist n I eat 6 whole eggs each day. Is it okay? Also I wanna lose 8 kgs of weight.

I want to lose two inches around my waist n I eat 6 whole eggs each day. Is it okay? Also I wanna lose 8 kgs of weight.

Eggs are not bad.: There is a misconception that eggs are bad because of the amount of cholesterol and fat they contain. However, recent studies have shown that eggs may not contribute to heart disease in adults. One large egg contains about 6 g of protein. Meanwhile, the average adult requires only 46-56 g of protein daily. Aim for this goal with a variety of protein rich foods and remember to exercise.

Re-evaluate: With weight loss you may no longer need losartan and hydrochlorothiazide. With healthy eating and exercise weight gain could be increased muscle mass. Weight gain could be from fluid retention previously lost or stool if constipated. Stress and lack of sleep can cause weight gain.

Can't spot reduce: You can't spot reduce preferentially fat from one part of your body with either directed exercise or dieting. Millions of people spend millions of dollars/year to erroneous achieve what you have learned can't be done. Exercise will firm abdominal muscles &, like calorie reduction, assist in overall weight loss. There are "apples and pears" in the population--"apples" store fat around their middle.

If I start eating healthy and wearing a waist trimmer that makes you sweat more while exercising will I lose water weight and fat or water weight only?

If I start eating healthy and wearing a waist trimmer that makes you sweat more while exercising will I lose water weight and fat or water weight only?

Most waist trimmer: Belts are made of a rubber substance (Neoprene) and promote sweating where applied. Yes, there is more sweating/loss of water, but the amount is small and does not contribute significantly to weight loss. Your healthy eating plan, especially if you have a modest calorie deficit each day, is much more likely to result in weight loss including fat, water, and hopefully not too much protein. Stay well

Will I ever lose weight?

Will I ever lose weight?

Yes, it's possible.: First you should speak with your primary doctor. There could be a medical reason why you can't. Maybe you snore and have sleep apnea, if that does not work go see a obesity specialist. You could find one at asbp. Org. The bariatric specialist will evaluate you and will recommend an integrated program including a dietician, counseling, and excercize (such as a 5 min walk to start.) you can do it!
