If I start eating healthy and wearing a waist trimmer that makes you sweat more while exercising will I lose water weight and fat or water weight only?

If I start eating healthy and wearing a waist trimmer that makes you sweat more while exercising will I lose water weight and fat or water weight only?

Most waist trimmer: Belts are made of a rubber substance (Neoprene) and promote sweating where applied. Yes, there is more sweating/loss of water, but the amount is small and does not contribute significantly to weight loss. Your healthy eating plan, especially if you have a modest calorie deficit each day, is much more likely to result in weight loss including fat, water, and hopefully not too much protein. Stay well ...Read more

I've had allergy symptoms for a week now and have been taking tylenol (acetaminophen) but the past 2 days I've been having night sweats from the waist down. Why?

I've had allergy symptoms for a week now and have been taking tylenol (acetaminophen) but the past 2 days I've been having night sweats from the waist down. Why?

Wrong medication: Tylenol (acetaminophen) is good for headache, fever, aches and pains but is ineffective for allergy symptoms. I have no idea why you are sweating only from the waist down. Sweating is not a symptom of allergy. I suggest that you discuss your symptoms with your health care provider. ...Read more

What would cause abnormal Thermoregulatory sweat test? No sweat waist down. Small fiber biopsy normal. Burning feet. Neuro work up normal. Sed rate 5.

What would cause abnormal Thermoregulatory sweat test? No sweat waist down. Small fiber biopsy normal. Burning feet. Neuro work up normal. Sed rate 5.

Comments: Increased sweating of hands and/or feet is called hyperhidrosis, and is an autonomic nervous system variant which seems to run in families. Although it is likely that the increased sweating is mediated by acetylcholine transmission, use of oral meds to block is often challenging, and some of the best outcomes seem to be achieved via use of BOTOX. ...Read more

Why can't I gain weight in my body anymore? Especially my upper body including my waist. I only gain weight in my face. Solutions?

Why can't I gain weight in my body anymore? Especially my upper body including my waist. I only gain weight in my face. Solutions?

Weight gain: Is it just "weight" (including fat) that you're wanting to gain in your upper body, or are you looking more for muscle? Gaining muscle requires a healthy food plan along with weight training to increase your muscles' size. You will also need extra protein. See your doctor to make sure this won't be a risk to you, and so you stay healthy. A trainer can help with workout guidance & diet too. ...Read more

My Body fat percentage is 16% I'm supposed to be able to see my abs I don't, I'm 16 yrs old A BOY, I'm 5'5 I weight 139 LBS and my waist is 31inches?

My Body fat percentage is 16% I'm supposed to be able to see my abs I don't, I'm 16 yrs old A BOY, I'm 5'5 I weight 139 LBS and my waist is 31inches?

Not always: It depends on your fat distribution, muscle mass, and body type. For your age, it is more ideal to have a body fat percentage in the 10-12% range. TO get down to that, be sure to eat a healthy diet, eliminate soda, juice, fatty foods, and fast foods. Targeted exercise like ab crunches are not likely to help much. ...Read more

Is it true saying that the more I sweat the more I will loose calorie and get my body in shape.

Is it true saying that the more I sweat the more I will loose calorie and get my body in shape.

If exercising: Passive sweating, like sitting in a sauna or steam room, while relaxing will not make you lose weight. Active sweating from vigorous exercise will make you lose weight as long as you are not eating too much. Extra sweat gear to make you sweat more while exercising will not make you lose more weight. Weight loss comes from the calories you burn through exercise and your basic metabolism. ...Read more
