Been on 1200 cal diet for 3 weeks, thats a cal daily deficit of 570. I should be losing a pound a week but have only lost 1 pound in 3 weeks. Why!? :(

Been on 1200 cal diet for 3 weeks, thats a cal daily deficit of 570. I should be losing a pound a week but have only lost 1 pound in 3 weeks. Why!? :(

The most common: causes of a discrepancy between calorie deficit and weight loss are (1) underestimate of calories consumed and (2) overestimate of calories burned off. Also, nutritional labels and portion sizes on packaged food are often inaccurate. Some medications make weight loss difficult. An on-line weight loss coach such as Beach Body provides might help. ...Read more

Has anyone heard of a kidney releasing all of the kidney stones quickl? I passed 5 stones in two days with 3 more a week later same kiney

Stones analyzed?: Hi. That's awful! I'm sorry! Did you give a stone to your doctor to have it analyzed? Most stones are calcium oxalate with a little calcium phosphate thrown in for good measure. Many cases are treatable/preventable. Have your doc check your serum calcium and 24-hour urine calcium for starters. Preventing the next stones is important! ...Read more

How to loose 20 pounds in 3 weeks?

How to loose 20 pounds in 3 weeks?

Weighted Question:): Interesting question...If we had the answer here we could either all retire or line up for our nobel prize. Rapid weight loss of that nature would never truly be medically recommended. There are dr-created/medically formulated meal supplements that would allow you to take weight down at 3-5lbs per week...But i would want you to educate yourself on how to stay that way once your're to target. ...Read more

Is it possible to lose 12 pounds in 3 days?

Is it possible to  lose 12 pounds in 3 days?

Anythings possible: What kind of weight? Fluid of body fat. A pound of fat is approximately 3500 calories. No way to lose 12 pounds of body fat in 3 days. I'm assuming you want to lose your excess fat(?), not just weight. Also not safe way to proceed. ...Read more

I went to the ER with a 1st time kidney stones I'm waiting to see a urologist I've noticed a 25lb weight gain in 3 weeks what's causing this?

I went to the ER with a 1st time kidney stones I'm waiting to see a urologist I've noticed a 25lb weight gain in 3 weeks what's causing this?

Weight gain: This degree of weight gain must be mostly fluid; I worry you may be obstructed and gaining water weight as urine that is retained; this requires evaluation with ultrasound; your gastric bypass status can be relevant; you may have blind loop retention; you also are prone to oxalate stones, and this may then require specific targeted therapy. ...Read more

After losing almost 3 gallons of blood due to d&c doc says never get pregnant again. I want to try once more in the future. 3 losses, 3 csections?

More info needed: That type of blood loss poses a real threat to your life. I do not know enough about the details of your history to give a recommendation, but women who have had 3 miscarriages have high risk of a 4th. Your doctor probably gave you that advice with your best interest in mind. Seeking a second opinion is a good idea. ...Read more

How might you lose 5 pounds of bloated belly fat in 3 days?

Bloated: If you are bloated, it is likely water weight and/or intestinal gas, not fat. If it's water weight, it is possible to lose that fairly rapidly. However, in generally, trying to lose weight very rapidly is not only unhealthy, but is usually followed by regaining that weight back plus more. Just eat healthy and exercise. Weight loss will occur gradually but you have a better chance at keeping it off. ...Read more

I eat half the fat , weigh 3 stone less & am a lot more active , do I need to reduce the dose on 40mg pravastatins now ?

Elevated Cholesterol: Congratulations on changing your diet. That may have a positive effect on your cholesterol but for some people with genetic elevated cholesterol it may not. It also depends on wether you have a history of coronary artery disease. I would check with my doctor who may do testing and decide from there what to do. Great job Debbie! ...Read more

I'm 12 weeks pregnant and noticed that i lost 3 pounds in 3 days after my blood glucose went up. Still waiting for the glucose tolerance test result. ?

I'm 12 weeks pregnant and noticed that i lost 3 pounds in 3 days after my blood glucose went up. Still waiting for the glucose tolerance test result. ?

Weight loss: I'm sorry but I do not connect those dots. I wouldn't do a glucose tolerance test at 12 weeks… not sure how to interpret it. If you think you're diabetic i would monitor my sugars fasting, several times a day and get hemoglobin a-1 c. The weight loss makes you want to have your thyroid checked and ask about hyperemesis… i would let your doctor know asap about your concerns. ...Read more

I had a hips liposuction 3 weeks ago but I can't see any improvement. In total, 0.16 gal of fatwas removed. I'd like to know if this is normal ?

I had a hips liposuction 3 weeks ago but I can't see any improvement. In total, 0.16 gal of fatwas removed. I'd like to know if this is normal ?

Probably: Hi. I see you're a male. You probably had liposuction of your love handles rather than of your hips. The volume aspirated could be fine, depending on the amount of fat deposits you had before your surgery. Also, 3 weeks is still early to see final results. Your best option is to talk to your surgeon about this and maybe go over your before and after pictures for a better idea of your results ...Read more

Approximately how much thc is in the urine after 3 days since smoking.also I'm 6 foot 1 around 210 lbs and drink plenty of water?

Approximately how much thc is in the urine after 3 days since smoking.also I'm 6 foot 1 around 210 lbs and drink plenty of water?

Depends: THC may be detectable in urine from 3-30 days or even longer, depending on how long and how heavily you have been using the weed. More body fat means THC will be detectable for longer period. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
