If you're a healthy BMI when you get pregnant but gain pregnancy weight and it causes your BMI to be in the overweight randge, is that unhealthy?
It depends/unlikely,: This depends on how much weight is gained during pregnancy. The average woman is expected to gain about 25 pounds during pregnancy and would likely still be overweight after it. So it's normal to be overweight in pregnancy. However, if the BMI was high normal before pregnancy it might be smart to have a diet and exercise program after the pregnancy. Best of luck. ...Read more

Dose your body shift... When your in your 20s, even though you may not be losing lbs..? People think you look like you are losing weight..?
Probably no shift: If people think you look thinner but you are not losing weight, it is possible that you now have less body fat and more muscle-either from a natural maturing process or from a more vigorous exercise program. Enjoy it while it lasts, as our metabolism slows as we age and the opposite process usually occurs unless we actively exercise and eat healthy diets. ...Read more

Could you tell me how much exercise should a woman over 200 lbs. Begin with when trying to lose weight?
Weight: I usually recommend calorie restriction and walk exercise to start a program. Aim for an hour of walking a day. Ideally one session but a total of three 20 min sessions may be easier for some to begin. After a few weeks the duration or the walk speed canbe increased by no more than 10% each two weeks. ...Read more

Exercise: There are no pills, hormones, or supplements that can increase your metabolism, unless you have a medical problem (such as hypothyroidism).

If you're significantly overweight is it ok to lose weight quickly (like a low carb) or should you try for the conventional 1-2 pounds a week. I am 5'0 and weigh 254 pounds. I'm fortunant to not have any medical problems and I go regularly for physicals
Life long habits: Losing weight is the "easy" part. (not easy at all, of course). The hard part is keeping it off. Therefore, losing weight quickly will not accomplish your goal. Instead, change your habits to focus on pleasurable activities independent of meals and eat in a manner that is sustainable. That means slow weight loss. You should not attempt to lose 100 lbs in anything less than 24 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
