What should my calorie intake be to lose weight? My first Doctor said 1200 but calculators say 2100. 310lbs 5'3" female 22 years old. Thank you!
It depends: Do you want to sustain your weight or lose weight? It may be best to consider weight loss since a 5'3" frame will have diffculty sustaining that weight over time without joint damage. Your calorie recommendations are extremes on a spectrum. I would suggest starting at 2500 carefullly counted for 2 months are drop by 100 every 2 months until you get to 1500. Return to 1800 when at goal weight. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It's: It's not going to hurt you, but you are going to be sore to start. The worst thing about starting a new exercise program is going too fast, getting hurt and then having to quit. Try doing exercises that push you like the elliptical or fast walking to some good tunes but be careful about weight training and jogging- things likely to injure a muscle or joint. But good for you being so motivated! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My bowels habits have changed from every day like clock work to every other day I am 51 years old and female. I joined weight watchers 6 weeks ago. I am eating more fresh fruits and vegetables then ever, and drinking plenty of water. I am eating all th
The changes in your bowel habits are likely a direct result of your dietary changes. Bloating is common when large amounts of fiber are consumed (fresh fruits and vegetables). As good as they are for you, you may need to slowly increase your intake. In addition eating raw vegetables can be difficult to digest thus causing bowel changes.
If it makes you feel comfortable, see your doctor, however this is likely an issue with your diet.
Take care. ...Read more

Weight: Weight loss is such a frustrating thing. Our bodies evolved to hold onto weight, and it can be very difficult once a plateau is reached. I have to say, that losing 30 pounds is amazing, so congratulations. You are doing everything right. You might need to "jump start" your weight loss by a change in exercise program. You may want to consult a personal trainer, or ask a staff member at your gym for more variety in your routine. Again, congratulations on losing 30 pounds, that is fantastic. ...Read more

I'm a 26 yr old female standing 5'2" how much should I weigh? All the BMI calculators say something different!
I used two calculators to find my target heart rate, with different results. One used my resting heart rate. Which should I use for losing weight?
No magic number: There's no perfect number. Here a good rule of thumb. Subtract your age from 220. This is your maximum predicted heart rate. Multiple by 60%. This is your recommended target heart rate. Example: age 44. 220-44=176. 0.6x 176=105. 105 is your target. Remember: you'll lose more weight by reducing your intake than by trying to burn it up. Any exercise at any heart rate is beneficial for dieters. ...Read more
