hi nagendra...its high time you have to improve your lifestyle..you need to start doing some exercise like brisk walks/ jog for 40 mins with 10 mins of ad exercises like crunches, plank, reverse crunches..eat small meals every 2-3 hours .. oats upma/ poha/ idli for breakfast, carry snacks like fruits, nuts, egg whites, sprouts, chana kurmura with you.. avoid milk and wheat completely have salad with lunch + 1 howar/ ragi roti + veggies+ dal.. keep your dinner light like soups, salads, veggies/ chicken or fish.. you have to avoid junk and fried.. keep one meal in a week as a cheat meal.. drink 2-3 litres water daily.. rest well..do not lie down immediately after eating..

hello nagendra,
regular excercise specially cardio like jugging,brisk walking.swomming also help.
take lot of green leafy veg with fruits.
avoid white bread, pasta. please fast foods. you can take non veg specially chicken fish. but avoid red meat.
avoid palm oil. shift to sunflower oil.
use skimmed milk instead of cream milk.avoid ice cream.
drink a lot of water.
take small but frequent meals.
Never skip breakfast, which is the most important meal of the day, as it kick-starts your metabolism. Instead, eat a heavy breakfast and stick to lighter meals during the day, leaving the lightest meal for dinner.
you could do some crunches. Start with only about ten crunches on the first day and slowly increase it by one or two, crunches, everyday.
take food 2 hr before food in night.
pranayama is very helpful if you have no contraindications.
avoid stress,take good sleep.
hope this will be helpful to you. take care

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.
