How to control the obesity - give me any exercise plan and diet plan?

Diet exercise plan: There is no quick and easy remedy to obesity. People come in different heights, weights, ages, sexes, races, and have different exercise habits and food intake.

That means either eating less, and using an app like myfitnesspal to track, or exercising more, using a fitbit to track. 10k steps a day = wt loss. ...Read more

I am obese and am trying to lose weight following slimmin world plan but not seeing big losses, could taking sertraline be affecting my weight losses?

Metabolic syndrome: What you have is called the "metabolic syndrome". It would be rare for zoloft (sertraline) to interfere with weight loss, although a few cases of weight gain on zoloft (sertraline) after six months or more of treatment are generally seen by most seasoned psychiatrists. With HTN and venous stasis you might consider one of the available gastric bariatric procedures. Sleep apnea can cause obesity and HTN also. ...Read more

Can u take Alli and hCG drops together then take a multivitamin at bedtime. Of course i plan to diet and exercise. Im pretty much obese?

Yes: Sure you can. It is not clear that HCG is absorbed and functional when taken orally. Probably not. Alli does work and does so by blocking fat absorption. Be careful of your fat intake because it can cause abdomnial cramps, etc. That said you will absorb most of the vitamins except the fat soluble ones. Vitamins a, d, e and k should be taken at another time so you can absorb them. ...Read more
