Which is more effective: a diet without exercising or the opposite? I know that both a proper diet with execising daily is the best option.

Is cycling better or walking as a exercise in early stage of osteoporosis for a 45 year old lady? What else can we do to strengthen knees.

What is the best prescription weight loss medicine and why? Using it only as a starting point coupled with diet and exercise. Sometimes the first step is the hardest.
Complicated question: Unfortunately, there are no great options. Many meds have been taken off the market for safety concerns. The few that are left have their own side effect profile (cardiovascular risk, potential for addiction) and most studies show that the weight is regained after the medicine is stopped. The fda approved a new med recently - lorcaserin - but they are requiring more safety data. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Malnutrition is it dangerous if a person rarely gets hungry and their diet consists mostly of coffee and water and one small meal a day with walking as the sole exercise?
Yeah, not so good: I'm OK with the exercise but you need to eat more. Eating actually helps us burn calories, as the breakdown of food requires energy.

Is it possible for fat cells in our body to be resistant to diet and exercise or is this just a way of promoting liposuction?
Fat cells: Ultimately, fat burning becomes universal in distribution. However, fat cell resistance is real. Fat tissues have less circulation than other tissues and so are less exposed to burning dynamics. Low insulin is essential for adipose burning. And glycogen burning, ie stored starch burning, is first in line. Adipose burning kicks in with low insulin AND depletion of glycogen stores. Difficult! ...Read more
