My weight is 66kg now. I want to reduce it to 60 kgs over a period of one year from now. Can I do that even my BMI is average? What is the best method

Slow and consistent : Losing 6 kg(~13 lb) over a one year period of time is reasonable. That is only a decrease of about 3500 calories a month or a little over a 100 calories a day. Start by reducing or eliminating any high calorie drinks such as soda, juice or alcohol. Start a consistent walking program, minimize fast food, concentrate on whole foods: lean meat, veggies and fruit. Have a cheat meal every now and then. ...Read more

Wellbutrin (bupropion): I start patients on the slow release as the dose is titrated upward. Once at the final dose- i change to the extended release form. The immediate release form is not the safest (regarding potential side effects). The brain does not like feeling like a ping pong ball - thus the longest release form makes it the happiest. It is also easier to remember to take once a day medication. ...Read more

If you have tonsillitis and you are on antibiotics, they won't work if you throw them up, and if you're not on antibiotics you may need them. In any case, you need to see a doctor. Try to drink lots of fluids in the meantime. ...Read more
