Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more
I am twenty one weeks, no bump, no weight gain, but I am getting tons of lower belly fat, why am I getting so much fat with no weight gain?
Pregnancy: At 21 weeks, the uterus is usually slightly above the belly button. At you next OB visit please verify that you are growing appropriately. Pregnancy changes are common, and your redistribution of fat is not out of the ordinary. Most weight gain occurs as the baby gets bigger rather than in early pregnancy. I would expect weight gain soon. ...Read more

I am on a healthy eating plan and exercising . I am losing inches but not losing weight? Why is that?
Need calorie count: You may be eating more than you think and the calories you are burning off with exercise may be less than you think. Try figuring out these numbers before you give up your good work. Also, it is not unusual that in the early phases of dieting and exercise, your body is changing (adding muscle, losing fat) where you will not see much change at the scale. Keep going, it will get better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I suspect that i got normal weight obesity, as I am thin but have a belly. I am now dieting and exercising, i lose my weight but not my belly?
Avoid carbs or sugar: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more
Reduce weight: It depends on what you are doing. My philosophy is that the best way to lose weight is not by dieting, but by changing your lifestyle to a healthier one. You don't need a drastic diet. Make small changes. Eat the right portions, eat 3-5 small meals a day, cut back on carbs and sugars, increase lean protein/veggie/fruit/water intake, and you must do some cardiovascular exercise. ...Read more

I have been dieting and exercising and have not lost any weight I am 140 pounds over weight. Why with all the healthy changes am i still not losing?
Discouragement: Losing weight is hard and very, very slow. 1 to 2 lbs a week is the best you can hope for after the first week or several weeks. Exercise is good but weight loss only occurs when your intake is less that what you burn. Exercise is no substitute. Look at caloriecount.Com. ...Read more
Im eatting alot but somehow im not gain any weight/fat. Im a skinny girl that needs fat in my body. ?
Too skinny?: Everyone needs some fat in their bodies, but there are some people who genetically maintain minimal fat stores with very high metabolism. As long as you aren't losing weight you likely don't "need" to gain weight. On the other hand, hyperthyroidism can keep you from gaining weight and could be considered. If you are only worried about looks, concentrate on good muscle tone rather than fat. ...Read more

Fat vs Muscle: Losing weight can mean different things to different people. I prefer to call it changing your body composition. That is to say gaining more lean tissue (muscle) and losing fat. It needs to be tracked with special scales or other equipment. Losing inches is as important as weight, and in some cases even more important. Would need much more info about your weight, "diet", exercise, etc. ...Read more
