hi welcome to healthcaremagic
work out at the does help but in some people even though they eat well they dont put on all protein rich foods like non-veg,egg and milk..calculate your calorie requirement and follow it..stick on to your diet timings and never skip a meal..cut down your stress levels and get a good sleep..modifying your lifestyle would definately help you..

I am a 19 year old girl, about 5 3, and around 85lbs. I am well aware this is low. This is not from choice, I naturally weigh this little. However, I worry that it is too little, but at the same time I can t live a sedentary lifestyle. I ve tried to gain weight for so long, but I don t know what to do anymore.

I am a 41 years old male. Two days ago I woke up and tried to grab something and my arm muscles ( biceps and forearm ) were sore (like I have started weight training the day before). I noticed stiffness through out right side. I have not done any physical activity the day before. If I grab some heavy object I get this feeling of a sore muscle (same feeling you get when you start weight training). Today is the third day. My muscles are better but can still feel the difference when lifting heavy objects. What can cause it?

I am 36 years old, 145lbs, 5 7 , active, athletic woman. I had cervical cauterization done 2 weeks ago and my doctor said it was quite invasive. He said no intercourse for 6 weeks and no running for a month. After 2 days I started to bleed and I am still bleeding (I did have my period the first week as well). There is a bit of discomfort almost like a period cramp and a bit of pressure when sitting down after a long busy day. I am wondering if there is other activities I can do (i realize no swimming as I cannot use a tampon ) but what about weight training lightly or if comfortable riding my bike. Getting a bit stir crazy to say the least, going from working out 2 times a day everyday to nothing or just walking is crazy! Thank you.

Hello, Names Mike. The guestion I have is based on something that happened in the past and I m not experenceing it now. I m about 5 11 & around 290. About 10 months ago I was working out doing P90x doing bend overs an sit ups.. trying to lose weight , it was helping alot i was makeing alot of progress and i lost about 25 to 30 pounds. However i stopped do to noticeing bleeding in my belly button... not like OMG bleeding just alittle here an there from time to time. never enough to come pouring out or anything. I would like to start working out again but i m afraid of what this is an i dont wanna make it worse, thats the reason i stopped to start with... i really wanna lose weight but this keeps me from doing soo.... So what is this anyway? or what could it be an should i start working out again?
