Can gastritis cause difficulty in weight loss? Been eating low carb, counting calories, lots of exercise, no weight loss! lots of gas, bloating, cramps

Carbohydrates may stay too long in stomach and/or proteins/fats may pass through too quickly resulting in fermentation or putrefaction. Use enzymes, betaine and acidophilus from professional sources for best results. ...Read more

Weight gain after gall bladder surgery?

Weight gain after gall bladder surgery?

Very possible: Gallbladder symptoms include pain, nausea and loose bowels after fatty foods. Many folks naturally eat less and stick to low fat foods to avoid the pain. Since most symptoms resolve after surgery, while discomfort and activity restrictions are still in effect, some weight gain early on is possible.

Breast far apart no cleavage  and after weight loss loss of upper pole fullness.can gaining weight reverse this?any treatment age 23

None recommended: Trying to gain weight to get full breasts is a bad idea. You are likely to get fat without fuller breasts. If you must, you may consider getting a breast implant. I am not recommending it, jut informing you of the option. 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. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Stomach pain after eating food.  Loss of appetite.  Having one meal in a day despite of hectic university routine. Weight loss.  Worried?

Spread out your food intake over these times. If you are indeed losing weight you should slightly increase the size of your meals. Improvement won't happen overnight but you will come to appreciate the benefit. ...Read more
