Is bariatric surgery safe? I'm 5'6" 213 with a lot of muscle due to weight training. Just can't lose the fat. Am i weight loss resistant?  Help!

Weight loss surgery: Two answers: first, bariatric surgery is safer than its ever been. It is safer than heart operations, safer than hip operations. The death rate today for a gastric bypass is 1 in 900. 1 in 2000 for a lap band. But, at your height and weight, your bmi is 34.3 and you wouldn't qualify for the surgical procedures. I am sorry.

Breast far apart no cleavage  and after weight loss loss of upper pole fullness.can gaining weight reverse this?any treatment age 23

None recommended: Trying to gain weight to get full breasts is a bad idea. You are likely to get fat without fuller breasts. If you must, you may consider getting a breast implant. I am not recommending it, jut informing you of the option. 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.

Can anabolic steroids  help to weight loss (fat) while helping to increase muscular mass?

Nope: There is 0 good re Anabolic steroids from a medical perspective. You can't expect wght loss from them alone. The idea is, if you build up muscles (pro athletes have proven you can (illegally) on a. Steroids), the muscles will burn the calories that you eat, so you won't get fat. But you have to get the muscles first. Fat athletes are rare. Get big muscles, stop eating, then wght loss. But hunger. ...Read more
