Hi,
there is no magic by which you can reduce your weight within very short time and it is not advisable too.
main important things are that you go for daily regular stranious physical exercise like weightlifting,jogging,running,swimming,etc.
avoid fatty,fried food and less carbohydrates
take plenty of green vegetables and citrus fruits
do not take anything between two meals,if you feel hungry than take green salad
go for thyroid test to rule out hypothyroidsm
ok and bye

Hi,

Welcome to HCM.

For weight reduction drugs are not very useful. We broadly classify people into three groups depending on their body build as thin, medium and heavy. There is no point in trying to bring a heavy build person to thin group. What is preferred is to try to control his /her weight gain within their group. Drastic weight reducing methods are harmful to the body and more over you tend to loose fat in all wrong places resulting in wrinkled skin making you appear much older that you actually are.

Best is avoid food rich in fat and protein. Add more vegetables which are either eaten raw or just boiled without adding oil, in your meals. Try to satisfy your hunger by these low Calorie containing food items which are more rich in fiber content. Drink plenty of water. Avoid visits to the refrigerator in between meals. It has been noticed that it is the in between meal small helpings which are the major source of over weight. Basic idea is to have good balance between our Calorie requirements and Calorie intake.

I am a 21 year old female. For the past two years i have been suffering with fatigue and weight issues. I have been on a low calorie diet and excercise every day and i can not seem to lose any weight. I am up to 180 and i am scared because two years ago i weighed 120 and i have been trying everything but i just cant lose anything. also it always feels like im bloated even though i dont eat much at all and i often get stomach pains. I have gone to the doctor and they ran a blood test to test my thyroid but it came back fine. I also have been have been having diareha very often through out theses past two years.I dont know what to do!

Hi There A few months ago I tried the Dukan diet for 4 days but my eyes were showing signs of jaundice so I came off the diet and had my billirubin levels checked. They were slightly .. nothing alarming! I also had an abdominal scan done and that showed that I had some sludge in my gall-bladder. Again, nothing worrisome. The specialist diagnosed Gilbert s Syndrome which appears to be correct because I am on day 5 (VLCD3) of the HcG Diet and my eyes are showing signs of jaundice again. I ve been reading up on GS and low calorie diets is one of the agravators of the symptoms.. also the syndrome can cause an intolerance to fat. I wonder if that is the reason why the first two days (fat-loading days) on the hcg diet brought on diarreah and piles? Phase 3 on the HcG diet is all about cosuming fat and not touching sugar and starch.. so if I have an intolerence to fat (which I don t know that I have, but I consume fat sugar starch dairy etc so it could be any of those things that have me feeling bad most days), does that mean that I will not be able to continue on the diet? I mean, will I be doing harm to myself or can I just suffer through it and reach my goal without any health problems afterwards? I ve just realised 5 minutes ago that I have messed up on the diet because I ve only been eating half the 500 calories (I thought it was only one meal a day). So maybe the super low calorie count was to blame for the yellow eyes. Sorry to complicate issues ... I ve just remembered that a previous time on the Dukan diet (only stuck with it for ten days because of circumstances) I had no jaundice. But the day I broke the diet i had a big salad with lots of Olive oil... later in the day, the olive oil (sorry to be gross) came out in exactly the same form that it went in... meaning there was a thick layer of oliveoil in the toilet bowl after a bowel movement. Could this signify an intolerance to fat (I m thinking this because the I had eliminated all fat for 10 days on the Dukan diet, then when I suddenly eating fats again I had that reaction. I m gonna stop typing now :) Many thank Elva

Hello- I have tried the hcg diet last year with great success- I only gained back 4 lbs over a year, but only did one round. I went to a diet doctor and he prescribed me phendimetrazine. I have taken it for 7 weeks with 14 lbs lost. I feel like I lost weight so quickly on hcg, had very few side effects and was wondering if I could use the Hcg with the low calorie diet and add just one phendametrizine for hunger control? I am 45 years old, female in very good health. I am also post gastric bypass patient (3 years out). I started at 320lbs and am now at 157. I am 5'4" tall- my diet dr says I need to weigh 115! That sounds extreme to me--but in any event I would still like to lose 25 more lbs. Can the two be taken safely together? It is sublingual-not injections
