Start by reducing or eliminating any high calorie drinks such as soda, juice or alcohol. Start a consistent walking program, minimize fast food, concentrate on whole foods: lean meat, veggies and fruit. Have a cheat meal every now and then. ...Read more

Hello my age is 19.my BMI is 17.9. What are the benefits of workout in gym for me? Your assistance will be helpfull for me

Eat protein: Your BMI indicates you are underweight. However, this may be ok for your genetics ("normal" BMI is lower for people of Asian or Indian ethnicity than European or African background). Still, your goal is obviously to grow bigger, stronger muscles, not to drop weight. I advise you to be sure you are getting in 80 grams of complete protein daily and at least 14 grams within 1 hr of lifting weight. ...Read more

Do I need or can I get the sleeve im 5'0 I weigh 185.8 pounds my BMI is 36 so I was wondering if I could get the sleeve and would my insurance pay it what do you recommend that I do?

You: You should see your family doctor to evaluate your overall medical conditions. Body weight is not the entire means to determine a need for weight loss surgery. Sometimes diabetic conditions, severe arthritis, or heart problems can indicate a benefit from bariatric surgery. The individual types of surgery such as sleeve gastrectomy depend on what your doctor and your surgeon determine may or may not be indicated for your individual and specific conditions. I cannot speak for your insurance company, as many companies have many different and varied policies on what is or is not covered. Your family doctor may be able to help you find out what is covered by your insurance company. ...Read more
