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

Diet (Definition)

Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

Almost 18, overweight 240, tried losing weight in grade 9 lost 10 lbs in a month but exams came & gained 7 lbs in a week. Why?

Almost 18, overweight 240, tried losing weight in grade 9 lost 10 lbs in a month but exams came & gained 7 lbs in a week. Why?

Probably because...: One ate more food or drinks, meaning calories, than one used up during that week. Some women also hold onto water-weight and/or poop-weight during certain days of their menstrual cycle. If those days happen to be at the same time as when she eats too many calories, then the sudden weight gain will even be more striking. To not gain weight, one cannot eat more calories than one uses up! ...Read more

I'm active, workout at least 3 days a week for 1-2 hours, eat decent. 1200-1400 cal daily. Gained 23 IBS in 2 months. Not pregnant.

I'm active,  workout at least 3 days a week for 1-2 hours, eat decent. 1200-1400 cal daily. Gained 23 IBS in 2 months. Not pregnant.

Doesn't Add up: 23lbs gained is 83,000 excess calories. 1200-1400 cal per day with exercise should make you lose weight. Full sugar soda, energy drinks or alcohol can add empty calories you may not be counting. The excess has to be coming from somewhere. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

Weight changes: behavior, nutrition, exercise / activity and choice of foods are all important to weight management. So why did you do binge eating? Were you hungry, or were the foods too tempting? The restricted diet seemed to help. Why stop working with it? ...Read more

Why can't i lose weight? Eating 1000 calories a day and doing cardio 1 hour a day, haven't lost any weight in three weeks (i'm 5'4'' and 137 pounds)

Why can't i lose weight? Eating 1000 calories a day and doing cardio 1 hour a day, haven't lost any weight in three weeks (i'm 5'4'' and 137 pounds)

Maybe counting wrong: Double check the calorie-counting. Any form of exercise burns calories, so if one does not eat or drink more calories than he is using during his exercise, then his body will burn up fat as fuel. However, if a person drinks a large orange juice (about 300 calories) while exercising, and exercises away only 200 calories, he will still get heavier even though he is exercising. ...Read more

I was on low cal diet for 3 weeks to lose weight average 800 cal per day, i increased cal to 1200 could this increase my weight?

I was on low cal diet for 3 weeks to lose weight average 800 cal per day, i increased cal to 1200 could this increase my weight?

Weight loss: I cannot answer this question effectively because i don't know how many calories you spend in a day. If you spend less than 1200 kal/day, then you may end up gaining. If you spend more than that, then you will continue in the weight loss mode. Overall, i don't find this approach of starvation diets to be helpful, but this is beyond the scope of this question. ...Read more

Am going on a diet. One meal a day to loose weight. In 3 days I lost 10 pounds. With lots of 0 calories of vitamin water. Is this healthy?

Am going on a diet. One meal a day to loose weight. In 3 days I lost 10 pounds. With lots of 0 calories of vitamin water. Is this healthy?

Weight loss: Weight loss as described above is not particularly healthy nor sustainable. Most guidelines say that caloric intake for men should not fall below 1500 calories per day. The optimum number of meals is a matter of dispute in the literature, but that they should be nutritious is not. Drinking water is generally a positive in weight loss. Most sources say that losing 1-2 lbs/week is a good goal. ...Read more

I lost 3 kg wight  within one month. .without diet  and exercise. ..i am 24 age....is it dangerous?

Doctor can evaluate: There's always a reason when a person thinks he lost 7 pounds in 1 month. If it is true weight loss, and not caused by an issue with the scales and weighing techniques, then one can work with his doctor to see what vanished: water, fat, muscle, or a combination of them. Whether or not such weight loss is dangerous often depends on the condition of the patient prior to the weight loss. ...Read more

No: Severely restricting your calories will decrease your breast milk supply. Try to get at least 1500 or more and increase your exercise rather than decreasing your intake. Make sure you take in plenty of water too. ...Read more

Muscle mass/Body Fat: How much weight training are you doing? As muscle weighs more than fat, you may be building muscle and although your percent body fat would be declining, your weight could potentially be increasing. Other factors that could contribute to weight gain over a 10 day period could be water weight from your menstrual cylce. Lastly, you need to check thyroid and other hormone levels. ...Read more
