Hello Priya,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Regular exercise, in combination with a balanced diet, helps you to keep control your weight. You should join a gym and do workouts concentrating more on the fatty areas like abdomen, thighs and buttocks. You should concentrate on free weight exercises (which do not require machinery) that target your large muscle groups.

Regarding the diet, take small light diets instead of three meals a day and incorporate more of fruits and salads in diet. Say no to fried food, junk food, bread, biscuits, cake, excessive salt or sugar. You can chalk out a diet chart with your gym trainer or a dietitian.

Hope it helps you. Regards.

I am having acute right upper quadrant pain. It woke me up about an hour and a half ago. I am trying to decide if I need to go to the ER or not. I had gastric banding in July of this year but have never had any problems. Feel just slightly queasy.

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.
