I have a BMI of 47.7. What are ways i can lose weight with no access to a gym? Any over-the-counter prescriptions to help?

Food Exercise and Me: One. You do not need a gym to lose weight. You must get outside and walk for 20 to 30 minutes every day at a pace to get your heart beat to 130 bpm. Then you change you diet to include 60% of your calories are proteins, 25% are carbs and 15% are fats. The total amount of calories you can consume in 24 hours is 1500.

My daughter is 7, weighs 110 lb., and is 4 feet 4 inches. What is her BMI, and does she need to lose weight? If so, how much?

My daughter is 7, weighs 110 lb., and is 4 feet 4 inches. What is her BMI, and does she need to lose weight? If so, how much?

Get up and move: Your daughter's BMI = 28.6 which puts her into the obese category. Weight loss should be addressed by both diet and exercise. Diet - healthy food choices, appropriate portions, cut out the sodas, sugary juices etc. Increase activity. Turn off the TV/Computer/Tablet…whatever and get out and move. 30 minutes (consistent) of increased activity 3x per week MINIMUM- go for a good walk, ride a bike. ...Read more

Need to lose weight but it is verry difficult. I did try before.Really i can't. My BMI is 36, 5 please for advise?

Exercise: Exercise is a guaranteed solution. You need to burn 500 calories more than you consume every day and you will lose about 1 lb a week. If this isn't working, then it's worth having your physician check your thyroid/other labs to assure you aren't fighting an uphill battle. The fact that you're frustrated is a good sign - you're trying.. I lost 100lbs and know how terribly challenging it is. ...Read more
