Not a number: Much depends on ur bone structure (light, heavy) and even more on how muscular you are.

Dietitian/wt watcher: If you can't resist food, there almost no chance you're going to be able to lose weight consistently. See doc to rule out other problems.

Avoid health food store stuff as it doesn't work. Surgery? Good luck. ...Read more
