Your BMI is 17.2kg/m2 Alcohol contains calories, but drinking alcohol doesn't lead to weight gain, Alcohol beverages contain no fat, no cholesterol, and very little sodium. However, these calories do not provide any of the carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins or minerals needed to maintain body functions. Eat healthy and balanced diet. Eat frequent and small meals. Include lots of fruits especially bananas. vegetables,milkshakes,cheese,milk,potatoes,dry fruits. If you are non vegetarian you can go for meat,eggs and fish. Do exercise regularly.

Hello, I m a 22 year old male. Recently, I ve had some anxiety issues. It begun with a general feel of unrest, that something bad would happen to me, elevated heart rate, etc. . I speculate it s due to anxiety, because the ECG showed no particular issues (despite the elevated 150bpm, it was classified as Sinus tachycardia, re-entry type was ruled out). I also had an echocardiogram, and it showed no issues either (no valve issues, doppler showed good blood flow, etc.). Blood tests were also fine (the thyroid hormones too), just a marginally elevated blood sugar value (116mg/dl) - that I think was due to the fact that I had dinner just before, the blood tests were done in the ER, so I did no preparation. And a marginally elevated MPV of the platelets (11,1 fL), platelets otherwise fine (PLT 304 K/μL). I also had a thoracic X-Ray, with normal findings. Recently, I ve noticed that I can see my stomach pulsating according to my heart rate. No feelings of pain, I tried pressing and couldn t feel a lump (but I m no doctor), but I could feel my heart rate when I pressed. I m not thin (1,72cm height, 73kg weight) and I have an amount of fat around my stomach, and the movements of the area are very subtle (I don t feel them, I just can observe them optically). I got worried about an aortic aneurysm. The physician that did my second echocardiogram, he pressed it under the ribcage, so I guess that he probably checked the aorta and thus eliminated a thoracic (at least) aortic aneurysm? Could it be an abdominal aortic aneurysm? I have no history of heart disease, nor do my parents. I always used to exercise, lately kick-boxing, but stopped for the summer and haven t resumed since. Never had an issue, maybe some occasional pains under the ribcage due to fatigue when the training was hard, that went away after some minutes. Could it be an aneurysm, or is it just my anxiety overwhelming me and making me overthink normal symptoms?

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
