Hello
welcome to HCM
As you are young ,its very easy to loose weight because you have lots of energy and will power.so start low fat ,less calorie diet. avoid sugars, fried and eating out.
start regular early morning jog and exercises. go to gym . drink lots of water daily. it takes time to come into shape,so need to have patience.
Dont try medications for weight reduction as they do have lot of sideeffects. physical workout is the best remedy.
Take care

NEVER BE IN A HURRY TO REDUCE UR WEIGHT..we cant reduce our weight overnight...it requires planning..u may restrain urself from eating for one or two days at the max for one week...but...again we will start having double the quantity.... here are few tips to follow1]DIET first reduce oily foods,iicecreams,choclates and junk foods by only 10 percent...and then reduce day by day but never restrain urself abruptly from having ur favourite food .2]EXERSICE involve in any physical activity which u like...may be games,walking,swimmimg,gardening just for 5-10 min per day..increase the time of activity...according to ur comfort...increase 5 minutes per week...for atleast 30minutes - per day..plan for atlaest one month and then see the result...by checking ur weight...initially u will reduce 2kg/month .....3]MEDICATION:there are few drugs like sibutramine....which are called anorectics,benfluorex which is an appetite suppresent...i being a doctor ..i never suggest those medications ...because of their sideeffects...4]SURGERY; coming to surgery LIPOSUCTION is the most popular surgery done now a days..but even it is a risky job...and it should be done only when other methods of weight reduction have failed....

hello
over weight is a big problem these days.and you are really victim of over weight.but to reduce the weight is not so simple as you are thinking.you can not reduce your weight by medicine it has lot of side effect.
I personally advice you for work out untill you sweat, and reduce your diet.this is the best way to burn excessive calorie.its really working.
thanks

please dont go for any wt reducing medications, they have lot of side effects, the doc said even sexual health is affected. my ht is 5.3 and wt was 66 kgs, doctor said i am obese, the reason for my obesity was high cholesterol. my good cholesterol levels were low and bad cholesterol levels were high, then they put me on cholesterol reducing medications Atorva 10 mg, then i started reducing the wt. i did some strict diet restrictions like avoid fatty foods, splcy foods, junks foods and carbonated drinks. i didnt get time for exercise. but my wt is 59 kgs, i have reduced 7 kgs i feel more relaxed now. try with diet.

My husband is 41 and just had an overall checkup that found the following: high cholestorol, elevated liver enzymes, & left axis deviation. He is 5 11 & 182 lbs. He was told to change his diet and exercise because he is 10lbs overweight, then come back in 6 weeks for another ekg & bloodwork. He eats heart healthy at home but does consume 3-4 beers in the evening & sodas at school. Heart disease runs in his family on both father & mother s side. Are dietary changes enough or should he be more concerned?

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.
