I'm a 21 year old female that weighs 100 pounds and im 5' 3". Am I under weight?

What its the best way for a 21 year old female to loose a drastic amount off weight? At lest 80 pounds, in the fastest amount of time.

Avoid drastic measur: You don't need drastic measure, as they won't help. You need to learn how to eat and exercise properly for the rest of your life, otherwise you're shorten it unnecessarily. You have to burn off 3500 calories you don't take in just to lose one pound. 80x3500= 280, 000 calories. That's the equivalent of walking across the United States 93 times. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm a 21 year old female, roughly around 5"3 in height and im 150 pounds. Is that bad? I had twins 2 years ago and never seemed to lose any weight

BMI: Your calculated BMI is 26.6. This is a measurement that takes into consideration your height and weight. Ideally it should be between 19-24.99. So you are not obese based on this but somewhat overweight. Get involved in a exercise routine and start including healthy items to your diet (fruits. Vegetables, fish and poultry). A consult with a dietitian is also a god idea. ...Read more

Hi, I am a 21 year old female, height of 5'2 & weighing around 260 pounds. I have struggled with weight loss. I wanted to know your thoughts on qsymia (phentermine and topiramate)?

Hi, I am a 21 year old female, height of 5'2 & weighing around 260 pounds. I have struggled with weight loss. I wanted to know your thoughts on qsymia (phentermine and topiramate)?

Qsymia (phentermine and topiramate): Hi. Qsymia (phentermine and topiramate) is a decent weight loss drug. Your BMI is 47.5, and Qsymia (phentermine and topiramate) has not been shown to be effective in a similar patient population as far as I'm aware. I know your weight makes your life very difficult, and my heart goes out to you. Your weight is a serious health risk to you. It would be worth talking with an experienced bariatric surgery group about options. Good luck! ...Read more

Hi I am 21 years old female and weigh 96ish pounds and have a small frame. Is that a normal weight? Should I be concerned?

Hi I am 21 years old female and weigh 96ish pounds and have a small frame. Is that a normal weight? Should I be concerned?

It really depends on: What your actual height is, so if you can be more specific about "having a small frame, " we could give you a better answer. For example, if you are 5'2", that weight would put you in a category of Underweight; if you are 5'1", you would be just on the lower end of "normal weight." It's most important to eat healthily, exercise regularly and get plenty of sleep...which will help you feel well! ...Read more

I'm a 21 year old female with a soon to be 4 year old son, my height is 5ft 2 and I weigh 128lb, Is this a normal weight?

I'm a 21 year old female with a soon to be 4 year old son, my height is 5ft 2 and I weigh 128lb, Is this a normal weight?

Yes: Yes, you have a normal weight. Also, instead of ht/wt I would recommend being more concerned about where is your weight, we want to avoid weight in the midsection, as excess belly fat can lead to diabetes and heart disease, so the goal for women is to have waist circumference (at belly button) less than 35 inches and ultimate goal would be 1/2 your height in inches which for you is 31 inches. ...Read more

I binged all day eating a total of 3200 calories today. Will I gain weight? I weigh 52kgs. I'm a 21 year old female

But, if one eats...: But, if one eats just 800-1000 the next day, it will balance out. Eating a huge meal, such as at a wedding banquet, doesn't cause problems as long as one balances out the calories by eating less the day before, and the day after. However, making a habit of binging will likely bring trouble later. ...Read more

Get seen: Maybe one woman in 4 has a positive ANA but seems fine. I'd stop worrying about the ANA. I doubt you have leukemia but you need a complete history and physical exam and basic labs (CBC, chem profile, urinalysis) by a competent physician. Night sweats are serious. ...Read more

Yes: I admire your profession and your weight seems fine depending on your height. Much as I hate to advise this, being an ex-heavy smoker, please stop smoking, I beg you. I go to a weekly cancer conference and an inordinate number of untreatable cancer patients are smokers. Easier said than done, I know. Keep trying ; failing until you succeed. Be a chef.

I'm a 5'7" 158 pound, 21 year old female. I'm looking to lose 10 pounds with healthy eating & exercise. How many calories should I take in a day?

500/day less: There are about 3500 calories in one pound, so to lose 10 pounds, you will need to burn about 35, 000 more calories than you take in (through eating fewer calories each day and burning more through exercise). If you did no exercise and ate 500 cal per day less than usual you would lose about 1 pound per week/10 lbs in 10 weeks. Daily exercise will burn more calories and shorten your time to goal. ...Read more

What is the proper dosage of magnesium I should take for constipation? Female, 21 years old, about 140 pounds.

What is the proper dosage of magnesium I should take for constipation? Female, 21 years old, about 140 pounds.

Depends on type: There are many types of Magnesium. Magnesiums that are poorly absorbed, like Mag oxide, help by acting as a laxative. But magnesium deficiency can also cause constipation and well-absorbed forms like mag taurate and glycinate help. I advise trying 400 mg/day of well-absorbed forms, and you can increase dose if that does not help. High doses are safe. See http://tinyurl. Com/m7oovm4
