Losing weight slowly, good diet, lifting weights. Developed nasolabial folds. Will they disappear as my face gets smaller & reach my ideal weight?

Losing weight slowly, good diet, lifting weights. Developed nasolabial folds. Will they disappear as my face gets smaller & reach my ideal weight?

NLF's: This would be difficult to predict. It depends on your age, skin quality , genetics, etc. Unfortunately many people find their facial appearance "ages" as they lose weight. The benefits of losing weight and getting in shape are tremendous. However, it can be frustrating thinking you may look older. Fillers, collagen stimulators and fat injection can all help with this type of change. ...Read more

Does lifting 5-10kg weights affect height growth and pushups too do they stop growth of height...?

Does lifting 5-10kg weights affect height growth and pushups too do they stop growth of height...?

No and No: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. In rare cases, growth hormone is approved for use in younger, extremely short kids. ...Read more

Will type 2 diabetes diminish muscle and strength gains from weight lifting? And should insulin use be modified when lifting heavy weights? 

Will type 2 diabetes diminish muscle and strength gains from weight lifting? And should insulin use be modified when lifting heavy weights? 

Not if controlled: If diabetes is well controlled, it should not diminish the effect of exercise in increasing strength and muscle mass. In order to evaluate whether Insulin needs to be adjusted, you should measure glucose before and after exercise sessions; if the sugar is falling with exercise, you could have a snack before exercising, drink a sports drink during exercise, or decrease Insulin at the meal before. ...Read more

Will lifting weights increase facial hair growth in man?

Will lifting weights increase facial hair growth in man?

No: I can't think of any reason that lifting weights would increase hair growth unless Anabolic steroids or testosterone was being used. There are no known hormonal changes with exercise that would explain hair growth in men. In women, aerobic exercise decreases estrogen, so male hormones become more dominant and one could see facial hair & acne increase. This is an increasing problem in women. ...Read more

Height growth , increase height through yoga - http://bodyheightcom.Blogspot.In known as a height growth, increase height through yoga  is possible wi?

Not possible but...: The yoga exercises advised on that website will improve your posture & help you stand straighter to maximize the height you have, but it is impossible for you to grow even 1 more mm. This is because height is determined by length of our bones and they grow from a part called the growth plate. Once the growth plates fuse (age 17-22 in men) it is impossible for the bones to lengthen at all. ...Read more

Can strength workout at low age reduce skeletal growth in width?

Can strength workout at low age reduce skeletal growth in width?

Probably not: While previously accepted opinions suggested that weight training at a prepubertal age may stunt growth, most recent evidence disputes this theory. Studies have shown that strength training leads to improvement in muscle coordination & strength, despite no significant change in muscle size (until after puberty when hormones help add muscle bulk). ...Read more

Will building the leg muscles through weight training & high calorie protein diet help reduce the appearance of saggy thighs post weight loss? Age 22.

Will building the leg muscles through weight training & high calorie protein diet help reduce the appearance of saggy thighs post weight loss? Age 22.

It depends: It depends on how much weight you have lost. If it was a significant amount, the fat is lost but the skin was stretched so far that it just hangs when the fat disappears. We are talking about a hundred pounds or more that would affect this type of change. If it was 20-30 pounds, working the thigh muscles will firm and build up the muscle structures that the skin will not hang. ...Read more
