Weight gain: Weight gain from medications seems to always be tough to lose. Our metabolism seems to slow a little more and we have to work even harder. Metabolically weight is simple use more calories than you take in. There is really no other way to do it. So you need to increase your output and decrease your input. Reasonable diets and exercise programs are key. Fads don't work long term. ...Read more

No spot reduction: there's no way to reduce fat in certain areas by certain exercises. Liposuction can remove that from specific locations but is only used in subcutaneous areas.As you lose weight, the body burns your fatty storage and usually it is equally distributed when you lose or gain weight. ...Read more

Is there any over-the-counter  water pill that i buy before i state my weight loss program?I really need to do that or master cleanse.

Oh my, diuretics are: Not the right way to start a weight loss program. Often, this can lead to laxatives, then inducing emesis, starvation or over- exercising. I would encourage you to drink at least 8 - 8 ounce glasses of water per day (not diuresing off your fluids). ...Read more

How much weight do you lose on the abc diet in one month?

How much weight do you lose on the abc diet in one month?

May backfire on you.: The ABC Diet or Ana Boot Camp Diet lasts for 50 days w calories ranging from 0 to 500 per day except 1 day at 800 calories. It is essentially a starvation diet which rotates the # of calories eaten per day. It is predictable that high % muscle mass will be lost. This can cause a lower metabolic rate. That in turn causes you to burn fewer calories & that can lead to weight gain. This is dangerous ...Read more

I decided to lose weight. But my face started to lose fat while my belly and buttocks don't lose any fat. What can I do?

I decided to lose weight. But my face started to lose fat while my belly and buttocks don't lose any fat. What can I do?

Some options...: Body sculpting sounds promising (; there are gimmicks ; diets that promise you their products can do this), but the only way to effectively spot-reduce unwanted tissue is to surgically remove it. The "pear" body type preferentially stores fat around the hips; "apples" store it around their waist. Lose 1 pound of fat for every 3500 calories you drop or exercise off, but you can't pick where--sorry. ...Read more

I am 17, 5"4, 190 and want to lose weight, i hate running and i don't have any equipment;how do I lose weight without running in the comfort of my home?

If you can….: Think of an alternative to running that you can do consistently like dancing or aerobics, etc. Good exercise should get your heart rate up to about 160 BPM and make you sweat. You will also need to cut calories from diet. Remove 200 calories from total daily intake and stick with it. You will not see results quickly since there are 3600 calories in 1 lb of fat. ...Read more

If i start putting weight training into my routine. Will this make me gain weight or lose body fat?

If i start putting weight training into my routine. Will this make me gain weight or lose body fat?

Possibly both: Weight training can lead to increased muscle mass which can increase your basal metabolic rate, so that you ultimately lose body fat. Increased muscle mass can potentially add to your weight, but if weight training is part of a fitness program which includes improved diet and cardiovascular exercise, you will likely lose weight over the long term. ...Read more
