What diet pills would you recomend for rapid weight loss in women?

Is it true that weightlifting and sprints are more effective for weight loss in women than aerobic exercise?

Is it true that weightlifting and sprints are more effective for weight loss in women than aerobic exercise?

Not necessarily: High intensity interval training (which entails some sort of sprinting) appears to be more efficient than "standard" aerobic exercise at improving fitness levels and weight loss. In the end, this is like a one size diet fitting all; there isn't one. Remember, bodybuilders when preparing for competitions "cut" weight by adding cardiovascular training not just increasing resistance training.

Why am I having trouble with weight loss? I am female.

Why am I having trouble with weight loss? I am female.

What is your "net"?: Weight loss is a very nebulous term; 10 lbs of fat loss but 10 lbs of muscle gain nets you no weight loss but better health. A better measure is size (however it is less precise) or an accurate measure of body fat percentage (underwater weighing or bioelectrical impedance, but not calipers.) type of exercise, diet, metabolism, thyroid function, and medications all play a role with your troubles.

Cardio Mix: The best way to lose weight is cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. Exercises such as crunches, planks, sit-ups, etc are good for toning the abdominal muscles, but cardio is best for weight loss.

I am female and my weight is 175 lb. What should I do for my weight loss and what type of food I take?

I am female and my weight is 175 lb. What should I do for my weight loss and what type of food I take?

Small frequent meals: A diet that is high in protein, high on fiber and low in carbohydrates can help. You don't say how tall you are, but a rule of thumb for a woman is 1000 calories if you are 5 feet tall, plus another 50 calories for every inch above that, plus another 20% if you do some exercise. That's to maintain weight. To lose weight, subtract 100-200 calories from the total.

You decide: Ideal weight" charts are based on fallacies. If we believed them, then most triathletes would be "underweight" and most professional football players -- fantastic athletes -- would be "overweight." your ideal weight is whatever looks and feels right to you and enables you to perform your chosen sport (s) best.

Choices: There are currently only 4 drugs fda approved for weight loss: phentermine, orlistat, Belviq (lorcaserin) and qsymia. The latter two were just approved and not available on the market yet. Phentermine and orlistat can provide small weight loss if used properly but in general, most patients will regain the weight once they go off the drug. As such, they are used only as adjunct to diet & exercise and not alone.

Are there any recommendations for improving weight loss in perimenopausal women?

Are there any recommendations for improving weight loss in perimenopausal women?

Lean muscle: Weight loss occurs only when calories consumed is less than calories burned. Unfortunately with many calorie-restricting diets, the body thinks it is starving and the metabolic rate slows down to conserve resources. Increasing metabolic rate is much more effective. This is accomplished by increasing lean muscle. Challenge yourself, get a trainer, lift weights...It works!
