Is it true that a person can lose weight by eating healthy food every day without exercise? One person said they did this and it works. Really?

Yes: To lose weight one must consume less calories than they burn. Exercise burns more calories but even at rest we burn calories. Sugars/simple carbs from grains esp. Cause weight gain. It's wise to avoid fried foods. I like dr. Furhman's diet: http://bit. Ly/1dhw9ht

I've got Crohn's disease and am trying to lose weight. I've cut out all the junk, eating nothing but nutritious food but I'm painfully constipated.

Talk to your GI: Usually folks with crohn's disease tend to lose too much weight. The steroids that are sometimes prescribed can cause weight gain. First make sure you are getting adequate fluids. Consider MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) or magnesium citrate but you must talk to your GI doctor to get their opinion as they know your bowels better than a generic doctor on this site. ...Read more

Hi dr is walking 1 hour 3 times a week good to lose weight while eating healthy food aswell

Exercise is good: The benefits of exercise are what we call "dose dependent" which means you will see more benefit by doing more. Walking 3x a week is good. If that's all your schedule allows, OK but "more is better"--say 5x a week. Our US health authority has some good reccs: http://www. Cdc. Gov/physicalactivity/everyone/guidelines/adults. Html.

I have an 9 year old who weighs 135. He sneaks food sohe won't get in trouble for eating between meals. How do I get him to eat healthy and lose weight

May be unmanageable: There are illnesses such as prader-willi in which nothing anybody can do will stop the kid from doing this -- it is compulsive and only a new experimental treatment based on the profound brain / hormonal disturbance alters (abolishes) this behavior. If your doc's advice & maybe meds have failed, perhaps this is the wrong battle & instead you can focus on other ways to help jr to gain useful skills. ...Read more
