Help docs! I'm trying to watch my weight for swimming and I'm curious if ground turkey is healthy?

Help docs! I'm trying to watch my weight for swimming and I'm curious if ground turkey is healthy?

Depends on how. ..: You are preparing the food. In itself, ground turkey is very healthy! A great alternative to red meat, it is a lean protein. Protein is great for muscle building and overall body health, plus it keeps you full for longer. A balanced diet is always best, and avoidance of high-sugar and high-fat foods.

It's: It's not going to hurt you, but you are going to be sore to start. The worst thing about starting a new exercise program is going too fast, getting hurt and then having to quit. Try doing exercises that push you like the elliptical or fast walking to some good tunes but be careful about weight training and jogging- things likely to injure a muscle or joint. But good for you being so motivated!

EKG or Echo?: You obviously have some cardiac issues but apparently are on medications to control rate. Is the RVH a finding from an EKG only or is it from Echo cardiogram? If diagnosis is from Echo then I would be more considered. Regardless, talk to your cardiologist (or consult with one) about this. You should determine WHY you have RVH, and how severe, before deciding limitations.

How can you feel about weight watchers?

How can you feel about weight watchers?

Very good program: I fully support weight watchers and other programs that help people with weight loss. The have had great success in some of my patients and clinical trials show benefit. The biggest hurdle is persuading people to stick with any weight loss program over several years and I think weight watchers is as good at this as any other. Many patients with severe obesity may need drugs or surgery too.
