Dear Rajiv,the body structure of most of the human beings are fixed.Some of people like you wants to get fat and thousands of people wants to loose weight.If you are loosing weight and feeling weak please talk to your doctor and go for some investigation.In other case take foods rich in protein,milk products that will help your to gain weight.Do regular exercise which also help you gain muscle mass .Bye and take care.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to answer my question. I am an 18 year old male who is completely healthy except for being approximately 20-25 pounds overweight. I have battled with my weight my entire life and am from a family of large people. I m heading off to college and know that maintaing a healthy weight is even more important during these next years. My problem is that I have become so disheartened by previous attempts to control my weight that I really don t know the best approach to take. My typical attempt is some type of new diet (no-carbs, low-fat, less than 1000 calories a day) paired with exercise (pre-cor machine and weights at the gym) three to five times a week. Every time I try this for three months or so, lose two to four pounds, and become disheartened by the lack of results. Basically my question is this -- what is the best way to lose and then maintain a healthy weight? Do I just need to push harder with diet and exercise or is there a certain approach that might work better. Should I turn to products like Alli (Orlistat) to help me with this problem? How can I shed some pounds and keep them off? Thanks so much!

Hello. I had a question regarding adrenaline. If adrenaline had an effect on weight , would it be to increase or decrease it. The hypothesis of increase is as follows: adrenaline elevates anxiety , which promotes indiscriminate eating. The hypothesis of decrease is as follows: adrenaline converts fat into something the body can use, which lowers weight. The null hypothesis is that adrenaline has no effect on weight. Which is it?

About a year ago I had a mole removed on the upper right arm because it was itching. Afterwards there was pain in the bicep muscle where the root of the mole had gone down into it. The root area was cauterized by the doctor. Well, that muscle area never got well. Even though the site of the mole itself is OK, there is contimued pain in the bicep muscle. It hurts especially after I do push-ups or other strenuous exercise.Any ideas re cause, treatment and cure?
