Great plan: Losing weight by exercising and eating wholesome unprocessed food( preferably 6 small meals a day) will allow you to change fat into energy and muscle. If you do some sit down exercises to strengthen your abdominal muscles you will lose weight slowly and steadily and the skin will shrink down. No need for tummy tuck. ...Read more

Cardio exercise: Doing cardio is a great way to lose weight and you do not have to lift weights in order to lose weight. In fact, lifting weights generally builds muscle and that can actually add some weight. However, this isn't necessarily bad because you are replacing fat with muscle. Lifting weights can help tone your arms and legs as well which can help you look better. For pure weight loss, cario is fine. ...Read more

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more

Nutrition: The problem with 'belly fat' is that it's so easy to gain it and so hard to lose it. Try to focus on nutrition first, and avoid carbs like bread, rice, potato, pasta, and desserts. For exercise, try to work on getting cardio fitness rather than weight training. As you burn more calories and eat healthier, the mid-section body fat will slim down. ...Read more

I : I have battled with thyroid disease and weight gain all my life so i hear you. I also had two children and had a difficult time getting back in shape with work, house and kids. Diets do help but life style changes are best. Make sure your thyroid medicine, estrogen and other hormones are balanced. An endocrinologist would be a great specialist to see first. Then mentally you need to take time for yourself and excercise and see a nutritionist. Set a goal and be committed. Eat smaller portions and learn to say no to wine, sugar and breads. You could also seek advise at your local metabolic center. Keep trying and feel good in your body whatever your results and efforts should give you. Good luck. ...Read more

I was overweight and i did lost a lot of weight and my body now is perfect except the belly fat what can I  do ( i don't want to be more thinner)?

Congrats on wt loss: First congratulations on the weight loss. Following weight loss, especially if rapid, the fat shrinks faster than the skin can keep up, leaving you with some flab. The skin will continue to tighten to some extent; youth is in your favor. Overall good diet, conditioning, including stomach muscles, will help. Celebrate your "perfect body", even if not quite perfect. Plastic surgery is final option. ...Read more

Avoid carbs (sugars): Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Maybe losing weight : Too fast, and stimulating your gallbladder to go into spasm as you reduce your fat intake. There's a common issue with those who have been on Jenny Craig diet, that the general surgeons have made a lot of money removing inflamed gallbladders in these patients, who had rapid weight loss. Slow and consistent weight-loss is the way to go, to keep the weight permanently off. That should also reduce the gallbladder spasm you're having. ...Read more

Unexplained wt loss: You need a complete evaluation. You are absorbing less calories than you are burning. The cause can be anything from simply 1) eating too few calories for the amount of exercise you do 2) failing to absorb the calories you eat 3) using too many calories because your body is fighting chronic disease, 4) metabolism is revved up from a medication or thyroid over activity. Stomach pain may be a clue. ...Read more

Hi I have a swallowing and stomach problem and i lost weight now when i eat i feel like im still hungry weird feeling in upper back im very worried?

See PCP: If you have been losing weight without trying and have difficulty swallowing, especially if you have a smoking history, it is important to see your primary care provider. Although cancer is usually associated with being full early, this would be the chief concern, vs. Gastro-esophageal reflux (ger), or heartburn. ...Read more

I lost weight at a fast pace (200 to 150) unintentionally & now get deep lower stomach pains (moreoften), light headedness & nausea (both sometimes).

Weight loss: Unintentional weight loss is always a red flag for us. One question that I have is over what period of time did you loose the weight. 50lbs over 2 months vs 2 yrs could mean different things. Given your age, the weight loss and your abdominal pain, the things that need to be ruled out are celiac disease, crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Though the last 2 have other symptoms. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have a hiatal hernia- I am also at my highest weight (5'3 weighing 153 lb) almost all fat in stomach. if I lost weight, will it help hernia & GERD?

The loss will help: Hiatal Hernias are common and can often exacerbate GERD. Weight is on huge (sorry for the pun) factor due to abdominal pressure. The use of alcohol also exacerbates the GERD by lowering the pressure of the esophageal sphincter as well being a source of calories. Lose the weight-it has so many positive effects beyond control of the GERD. ...Read more
