Almost 18, overweight 240, tried losing weight in grade 9 lost 10 lbs in a month but exams came & gained 7 lbs in a week. Why?

If those days happen to be at the same time as when she eats too many calories, then the sudden weight gain will even be more striking. To not gain weight, one cannot eat more calories than one uses up! ...Read more

Unless you also reduced calorie intake after stopping ibuprofen, then some of that could have been fluid loss although 7 lbs would be a lot of fluid retention over 3 days. Next time you take Ibuprofen follow a low salt diet. ...Read more

Im 17 weeks pregnant and 104 pounds I've only gained 2 pounds is this normal?

Im 17 weeks pregnant and 104 pounds I've only gained 2 pounds is this normal?

Yes: Weight gain early in pregnancy is not and should not be the issue so many people want to make it into. As long as you are eating regularly, taking in good quality food in reasonable quantities and taking a multivitamin (prenatal), i would not worry about weight gain. On the other hand, if you are not eating for whatever reason, that needs to change. If it's nausea, seek your obgyn's help. ...Read more
