Not good: You shouldn't mix and match this combination. You should only do the HCG diet as a stand alone diet under the supervision of a physician. You should not use hydroxycut with Phentermine unless you want a cardiac event! you need to see a physician to make sure you do things the right way. http://www.prlog.org/12249227-hcg-diet-offered-in-new-jersey.html. ...Read more

Is the 3 day (military) diet better than doing the atkins diet for faster results and more weight loss? 14 years old 250 pounds.

Diet and Activity: Key is to burn more calories than you take in. Body likes to use carbohydrates (sugar/pasta/bread/potatoes) Decreasing carbohydrates helpful. Eat more lean protein like chicken, fish, nuts, beans. Avoid saturated fats (animal fats). Need some fat so plant based fats best. Vegs and fruits have fiber which reduces hunger. Lastly need exercise, 30-40 min walking 5x/wk to start. 1500-1800 cal/day ...Read more

Increase sleep & cal: It sounds like you are not giving your body enough sleep, and weight will come up with more food intake. If you feel full with even small portions, then eating 6 smaller meals a day on a schedule may help. Although fruits and veggies are very healthy , they are low in calories. Calorie dense foods are nuts and oils such as salad dressing or olive oil on pasta, etc ...Read more

Will ensure plus help me gain weight 25 pounds in about 6 months?

Depends: If you keep ur regular meals stable, could use 3-6/day to add protein calories (better be working out or will just convert to fat). Likely much easier & cheaper overall to use powder protein (usually whey best), and make shakes or fortify other usual drinks w/protein ~20-60grams/day, depending on ur weight now. (don't over do it-->kidney risk & fat conversion risk). ...Read more

Total cholesterol 234, BMI 30, BP 126/95, sugar 83. I'm 33 yo and 90 kgs. Are my results healthy?

Results: The cholesterol is a bit high and the BMI is getting to be too high. I would re-check your BP -95 is a bit high. With a BMI of 30 and weight of 90 kg you need to get going with a diet. Your doctor and/or nurse practitioner. or dietitian can help you. You might also go on-line to "NuVal" to get some idea whether your food intake is OK or too much. ...Read more

Wt loss->lower sugar: I am not 100% sure I am reading this question correctly, if you have changed your diet & exercise & lost 5 kg (11 pounds) over six months that is great & could easily have lead to your controlling your fasting blood sugar. This is great and you should continue to take care of yourself. If you are asking could a sugar change cause wt loss that is diff & requires eval for unexplained wt loss. ...Read more
