Fitness and Diet Query

I am a 21 year old boy. I am a lil bit over weight. I weigh 73.6 kgs and my height is 5.8. I don think my weight is too much but i have gained a lot of fat. I want to reduce it. I run in the evenings in the park near my house. I work hard alot to burn this crappy fat. Am i missing some thing in the diet? Because i don think i am doing any less work out. Kindly help me on this?

Running is a pretty heavy exercise so I don't think there's any problem with your exercise.The problem may be with your food intake.Take green leafy vegetables like Spinach and lots of salad.Take 5 smaller meals at regular interval as compared to 3 heavy meal.One of the meals being only salad. Do not eat between these meals. I tried drinking a lot of water before food and I think it benefited me.I also cut down on sugar in tea and coffee.

You are on the border line case of BMI 25. You will absolutely need to control calorioes to lose weigt. A good paramater for you is to see if you Jog about 2-3 Kms a day or burn atleast 250 calories through exerecise and do not take more than 1800 calories as intake. Do not crash diet and never go on diet lesser than 1200 calories a day.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
