Is the official hCG diet plan.Com safe? I am 12 lbs. Over weight, eat right and exercise. 49, f.

NO: The more I have investigated the otc hcg--which is not HCG . A pregnancy hormone-similar to lh/progesterone effects. The rx hcg may be real human chorionic gonadotropin, but we do not understand the effects it may have on patients---esp if they would have an unknown early cancer? Do not take any chances. Apparently, you can get rx HCG online by a doc------not o-k. ...Read more

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

Probably: If the pregnancy test is negative then the bleeding probably represents a period - an abnormal one. Since you have missed 2 periods and the 3rd one is abnormal I would recommend seeing your doctor to have your hormones checked and an exam. ...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% ?

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

Patience: I know that is probably frustrating for you. There is no question that if you persistently burn more calories than you take in that weight loss will occur, but it may take some time. So I would encourage you to continue and the results will soon follow. If any question, a good medical check up to discuss with your primary care doctor may be a good idea. Great job! Keep it up! ...Read more

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more

Cannot diagnose: You need to be seen and examined and tested by a good clinician, either an experienced pcp (family practice or general internist) or an endocrinologist would be a good place to start. Bring a full detailed history of your symptoms and their timing and associations with you and be patient. The evaluation may take some time. Best wishes for a successful outcome. ...Read more

Is light cardio better than intense cardio for weight loss?

Is light cardio better than intense cardio for weight loss?

To lose weight: You need to burn off calories. It's 3500 calories to the pound. Obviously, intense exercise will burn more calories than light exercise, but whatever exercise you can do, combined w/caloric restriction will help. Check w/your doctor to see if you're fit enough before doing any exercise program. ...Read more
