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
Why am I gaining weight on Lasix? My calorie intake is 900 to 1500 per day. My sodium intake is 600 - 900 milligrams per day.
Weight gain: Why are you taking lasix? In determining your proper intake of daily calories, one has to know what your ideal weight,present weight and level of daily physical activity are. If you are currently at ideal weight and don't expend much energy in your daily activities,then a daily intake of 1200-1500 calories should prevent weight gain. This amount of calories may be too much if you're very inactive. ...Read more

Lost 28lbs on 30 day hCG diet, day 11 in p4. Gained 12lbs w/abd distention (3.5") in last 10 days. Maintaining 1200 cal low carb diet. Causes?
Exercise: The HCG approach to weight loss is not recommended by multiple reputable medical organizations and fda (http://www.Fda.Gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm281333.Htm) clinical trials show no extra weight loss beyond diet alone. It can cause blood clots and serious depression. I recommend stopping hcg. Increasing exercise is a good way to get over a weight loss plateau. ...Read more
Yes, but...: If you eat less, your metabolism slows some. But it is not that much. It doesn't go down to zero. You still need to pump blood and breath. Exercise can diminish some of the slowing of metabolism. On the flip, when you overeat, your metabolism speeds up as your body attempts to dissipate the excess calories. ...Read more

Weight training (mornings), a negative energy balance (diet), now adding cardio at 65% of my max hr for 45 min (evenings) for a desired body fat of 5% ?
You will...: Burn muscle as well as lose body fat. Personally, not a desirable approach. The elist football players i see at ut have body fat measurements in the 7% range (not linemen, obviously). 5% is somewhat extreme. Also, your cardio at 65% maximal heart rate is too low to improve cardio fitness. Therefore i assume that your sole goal is extreme leanness to the point of......? ...Read more
I am into weight training and my protein intake is high.I take 1gm of protein per my body weight(187lb). Need a potent digestive enzyme?
No need: You do not need digestive enzymes. Your stomach, pancreas and intestine make enough digestive enzymes. You may be overdoing the protein supplements too. No more than 1gm protein/Kg of body weight is needed, including that in food and supplements, less may be adequate. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
