hi praveena.. welcome to healthcaremagic.. you can do cardio exercises along with crunches.. swimming is also a good way of losing weight.. but dont eat less... eat less calorie food but maintain nutrition by having diet rich in proteins like eggs without yolk, milk, pulses, grams and green leafy vegetables,beet root,corn,tomato, for increasing hb levels and avoid high calorie diet like rice,oily foods, saturated oils,fast foods etc.. have more breakafst and less amount of dinner.. and do some walking before sleep.. i hope this will help you reduce weight..

Hi, I had a tummy tuck operation in 1994 and in 2002 I had a baby where I gain 20 kilos. Ever since I have been training and eating healthy, but I cannot lose weight. I still weigh 78 kilos, I am 1m52cm tall and 45 years old. When I train, I do cardio training intervals where I get my heart rate up to 170 and back down to 135 every 2 minutes, I do weight training also. I so this 4/5 a week, but there is no change. I even had a personal trainer for 6 months and I lost on 2 kilos. I tummy is still very flabby and loose. What can I do, should I have another tummy tuck operation, will I be able to get my flabby tummy tightened up. Why can I not lose weight. My doctor has checked my hormone level and everything is looking good. I even drink +2 liters of water a day.

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.
