Hi, you have not written your height and weight,based on which rough physical assessment can be done.Any way,weight reduction is a mission.Not a short time practice.First of all it is important to know the reason for over weight,whether your life style is such or you have some disease.In general you can do is,plan your diet,take regular meals,avoid too much fried foods and drinks,do regular exercise at least 150 minutes in a week.Keep your self active.Bye and all the best.

My daughter is poor eater. She is 2 yrs now. She simply refuses to any kind of food. We used to feed her forcefully or showing her some TV programmes. She does not bite or chew. She just swallows everything that we give. Even Water / Juice had to be forcefully fed. She does not sip and drink. Our Dr suggested to leave her still she feels hungry and takes food on her own. We tried this too, but she refused to eat on her own even after 6-8 hrs of gap. Now our Dr prescribed Junior Lanzol to be given twice a day. Will this medicine help her chew / increase apetite. Please advise.

I was exercising for 35 min on bike then i was doing side bend w a 10 lb barbell--i do this often,but for some reason i just feel heaviness that i cant workout, so i stopped. Then i splashed some water on my nape because it felt like it was gonna burst... I closed my eyes and as i opened it everthing i see is moving almost like going to faint anytime soon. I live in an apartment so i was able to make it home safely, but im scared. What do u think caused this? This is the first time this happend.

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.
