Doctor :   Hi,
User :   Nice to meet you
User :   Hello :) I would like to consult a dietitian&nutritionist doctor for a very serious problem i have. I am getting married in 40 weeks.When my husband met me I was 55 kilos. We both fell in love but when I came to university 2 years ago, during these 2 years I have became from 55 kilos to 115 kgs!!!. That`s not due to a medical problem. Is just when i came to university because of the stress i was really really really eating so much. I went to make all the proper examinations just to be sure I don`t have a problem.And thanks god i do not have any health problem.Is just all this weight was gained in 2 years due to extreme calorie intake during university and not exercising. So I am currently 115 kilos and i am 1.65m tall. I want to become 55 kilos again in 40 weeks because i am getting married in 40 weeks. I have all the will and the strength from my husband to do it. I will do anything to become again from 115 kilos to 55 kilos as my marriage is the most important time of our life. SO ACTUALLY WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO, IS TO INFORM ME, IF IT IS REALISTIC GOAL TO LOSE 60 KILOS IN 40 WEEKS ( FROM 115KG TO 55KG)... I AM READY TO EXERCISE AS MUCH AS I CAN AND DO A PROPER DIET. SO ME AND MY HUSBAND CALCULATED IT AND I THINK IS POSSIBLE TO LOSE THEM! I JUST WANT A DOCTORS OPINION. HERE IS WHAT I THOUGHT : - 60 KILOS THAT I HAVE TO LOSE,DIVIDED IN 40 WEEKS EQUALS TO 1.5 kg PER WEEK TO LOSE (60 kgs to lose / 40 weeks= 1.5 kg to lose per week)....So we were wondering if is a realistic goal to lose 1.5 kilos per week.! If that is possible that means that I can really lose them till my marriage date.(female, 20 yrs old)
Doctor :   very good evening
Doctor :   Let me read your post
User :   Of course
Doctor :   Ok, i got it
Doctor :   Well its not a impossible goal\
Doctor :   but it does involves undesired effects
Doctor :   loosing weight in short span can rise your serum cholesterol, TGD and LDL levels which can pose serious problems
Doctor :   May i know , have you planned any specific weight reduction plan ?
User :   so losing 1.5 kilos per week is realistic and possible.I am glad to hear it. But what can I do to prevent those side effects?
User :   Yes of course
User :   I am planning to do 1 hour cardio in the morning, weight training at the afternoon with some cardio after it
User :   As about the diet plan is like this: User :   6 small meals (every 2.5 hrs) each meals contains
User :   lean protein
User :   and only after gym i will eat some "good" carbohydrates and some omega 3-6-9
User :   for the good fatty acids
User :   so actually is 6 small meals of protein and only after gym i will have my carbohydrates and some good fatty acids(tablets of fish oil0
Doctor :   well thats a good natural plan you laid
Doctor :   i can say that the side effects i mentioned may be much lesser with this
Doctor :   but it does need a greater will
Doctor :   also there is a newer technique available now a days which has better and reliable results
Doctor :   where you loose about around 0.5 to 1 kilo per day
Doctor :   but it does pull you to take some risk, but really low risk
Doctor :   Shall i inform you about the same
Doctor :   Have you heard about HCG diet plan ?
User :   of course i want to be informed but as u said this technique allows u to lose only 0.5-1 kg per week .... But i want to lose 1.5 kilos per week! :s
Doctor :   I am sorry , I repeat its 0.5 to1 kg PER DAY
User :   per day!!!?
Doctor :   Yes,
User :   i am sorry i didnt see it
Doctor :   such results have been recorded
User :   yes inform me please. but i think my time is finishing
User :   how can i load some
User :   money
User :   and come back in you again?
Doctor :   I shal give you the link
Doctor :   it will give you the information you need
User :   yes thank you so much
User :   this HCG diet plan does not put u in any effects? and also how can it be possible to lose for 40 kilos every day 0.5 kilos per week. I think one day it will stop working after some months yeah?
Doctor :   yes, there are some records which do say there were mild disturbances in hormone levels and cause gynecological problems but most of them were temporary
User :   yes
Doctor :   Well , its true that there is a reduction of 0.5 kg per day seen with this plan
User :   and then what do you doo?
Doctor :   its a timely intervention, not a every day thing
User :   change diet plan and incrise exercise?
Doctor :   It involves injecting HCG ( human chorionic gonadotropin )
