I have had weight problems for many years. I have been able to loose the weight as low to 125 lbs and am now at 244 lbs., a weight I can not tolerate this weight. It does not help my depression. I have been clinically depressed for many years. I know how wonderful I feel when I have my weight under control. I am under very good care. I take a lot of medicine. Six years ago I lost 2 sons in nine months. The first call I got was got in the middle of the night. I was sure as the phone rang it had to be my son with Hodgkins disease. But it was not, It was my other son. He fell down his cellar stairs and died. Nine months later it was my other son. That is when my weight really went out of control. Depression meds. do not make it very easy with your weight. Then I was diagnosed with PMR could hardly walk. Was put on prednisone again a weight gain product. The Dr. is taking me off prednisone, which is a start in the right direction. I am going to monitor everything. I have done weight watchers and atkins. Atkins is easier for me. Weight watchers I went from 180 to 125. This is the biggist battle yet. Any help I can help ... I have extreme arthritis in knees so going to therapy. Ready and willing to try anything. Never been at this weight. Causes such stress. Should I be fasting? Thank you Donna Powles

I am a type 2 diabetic, under control with 1000mg of glumetza per day...I also have high blood pressure for which I take Diovan HCT, and I have high cholesterol for which I take Lipitor. I have tried so hard to lose weight so that I can get off these meds with no luck. I was wondering how safe it would be to consider taking FRUTA PLANTA to lose weight considering all my other health conditions and medications taken...

I walked upstairs and was slightly out of breath. I sat down and noticed my heart rate was elevated but no pain or discomfort. I then noticed I could see my heart rate in my eyes as it caused them to pulse. I'm just wondering if that is a problem.
