Is rapid weight gain or slow weight gain better for Anorexic recovery? Current BMI at 17.7. Had BMI of 15 around early March...

Rapid weight gain is more likely to overly tax your,body,which can be dangerous. Manage your exercise as well. Keep it moderate if you have been exercising.

Training to lose weight + gain muscle. Do you recommend the following supplement: douglas preventive x? Rated 5 stars in nutrisearch comparative guide

Training to lose weight + gain muscle. Do you recommend the following supplement: douglas preventive x? Rated 5 stars in nutrisearch comparative guide

It's your money: This is a pricey vitamin-mineral preparation, with betaine (you decide, it's got some effects) and a couple of metals such as vanadium the only stuff you're not likely to find in a cheap chain-pharmacy daily tablet. I'd have trouble telling you they're worth the money. It'll be far more pleasant even short-run to male-bond with some gymrats and work yourself super-hard. Good luck. ...Read more

Post cardio snack?  Protein & high on the glycemic index for my advanced strength traing. But what's good post cardio such as 5k 7mph. Fat loss goal

Try drinking water: And not having a snack. If you want to enhance fat burning during cardio, have a cup of tea or coffee about 30 minutes prior to exercise (without sugar or sweeteners). This will help mobilize fat stores and improve endurance during your work out. Iced tea or coffee is good. And if you must have a snack try raw carrots, celery, other vegetables with hummus. Unsalted roasted almonds are good too. ...Read more

Fit individual w/ consistent diet&exercise regimen &very stable weight, but w/recent unexplained loss of 5lbs. Haven't changed habits. Cancer?See doc?

See doc, don't worry: Unintended weight loss can occur with a lot of conditions, most of which are less serious than cancer. For example, it can be a symptom of anxiety or depression. It makes sense to see a doc if you're worried about it, but I definitely wouldn't jump to any premature conclusions about what's causing it (after all, if it's anxiety you'll just aggravate the problem!). ...Read more

What is a reasonable amount of weight gain per week after starting resistance/core/weight training program if diet remains same. Losing wt b4 now gain?

What is a reasonable amount of weight gain per week after starting resistance/core/weight training program if diet remains same. Losing wt b4 now gain?

Many variables : Not knowing your current weight, dietary macronutrient ratio, caloric intake, genetics or hormone ratios (very important in a 56 year old). It is common for resistance training to halt weight loss and in many cases to increase weight gain given the effects of resistance training on Insulin sensitivity and muscle development. See a nutritionist, sports physiologist or a sports medicine physician. ...Read more

Usually: No diet program works for everyone but weightwatcher has a good record. However without regular exercise (including weight-training), the chances for you to maintain long-term weight loss is not good even if you had great success initially. One cannot diet forever. ...Read more

Lose inches off the bust - weight watchers?

Lose inches off the bust - weight watchers?

Well, here's the: Thing. Spot fat loss does not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some will probably be bust fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy ; be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed. Weight watchers is a reputable organization if you wish to lose weight. ...Read more

Low calorie: Watch your calories. Avoid processed foods with unnatural ingredients. Find filling, low calorie foods like whole wheat. Also pay attention to what u drink-soda, alcohol, etc can have a lot of calories. Exercise regularly. To lose weight u need to burn more calories than you consume. Read on Mediterranean diet and see if you can follow. In the end, it's lifestyle changes rather than specific diets ...Read more

I'm trying to lose weight (or fat) but also want to put on some muscle. Will weight training work against weight loss ? Lost around 13 kilo so far.

I'm trying to lose weight (or fat) but also want to put on some muscle. Will weight training work against weight loss ? Lost around 13 kilo so far.

No: The term losing weight is imprecise. What you want to do is loose fat.Weight training and building muscle will help you loose fat and at the same time help to reduce the loss of muscle that accompanies caloric restriction. Not only will you burn more calories during weight training but muscles burn more calories than fat even when you are at rest. See> http://bbcom.me/1Kt7vbI ...Read more

Best OTC appetite suppressant or weight loss stimulants? At approx 130lbs with norm of 115 lbs. Goal weight between 115-120lbs.

Best OTC appetite suppressant or weight loss stimulants? At approx 130lbs with norm of 115 lbs. Goal weight between 115-120lbs.

Wouldn't advise OTC.: For the weight loss plans that you have, I would re just limiting your intake of carbohydrates over fat and protein and adding mostly a plant based diet. I would suggest, as a general measure, checking your Body mass index (BMI) and seeing where you fall on the chart. I generally would avoid any stimulants, as they come with health risks, including tachycardia, dizziness and other. ...Read more

How scientifically-based do you think weight watchers is? It calculates points based on protein, fat, carbs, fiber. Fruits/vegs have no points.

How scientifically-based do you think weight watchers is? It calculates points based on protein, fat, carbs, fiber. Fruits/vegs have no points.

Close enough: As a former weight watcher's member, i calculated that one point is roughly equal to 50 calories, so staying within the number of points allotted will keep your calorie count low enough to achieve goal slowly but eventually. ...Read more

Will running two miles per day on a standard 1800 calorie diet help me burn body fat and gain muscle?

Will running two miles per day on a standard 1800 calorie diet help me burn body fat and gain muscle?

Yes and no: In men and women, resistance training combined with a healthy diet will build muscles....More in men than women but it works for both. Stronger muscles tend to burn more calories than weaker muscles even when you are not using them...That helps reduce fat. Lifting with proper form to the point of momentary failure plus a good diet seems to be the best way to get the muscles to respond. ...Read more

Some are dangerous: If they didn't work; they wouldn't be on the market for long. Unfortunately some of them contain ephedrine-like compounds that can cause rapid heartbeats, anxiety, sleepless and elevations in blood pressure that could precipitate strokes or heart attacks in people prone to it.
