Your Questions About Weight Loss Plans For Men

William asks…

Is there a dietary supplement out there for me?

I am scared to start using something that will be really bad for me in the long run but am in search of something that will give me the boost I need in my weight loss plan. I prefer an herbal alternative.

Maricela answers:

When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey
cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your
diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
your problem areas for men and women. It’s not necessarily to become a
bodybuilder or even join a gym – a couple of dumbbells will help you
to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

Never try any weight loss pills or acai berry stuff. It never works and you are wasting your money

What to do about breasts and weight loss?

I’m 16, and due to weight loss, my breasts already look horrible. They sag, and I’m absolutely miserable. I hate it so much. I still have more weight to lose, so they’ll probably look absolutely terrible by then. Is it really over? Is my only chance to have normal breasts getting implants and a lift? :/

Maricela answers:

Hello,

Don’t give it, keep trying.

Exercises.

Cardio exercises was named best exercise to lose weight.
Cardio exercise is a exercise that increase your heart rate.
Example of cardio exercises are jogging, swimming, boxing, walking, skipping rope. Look up on google for more cardio exercises.
Do one hour of cardio exercises everyday.

Diet plan.

Drink 6-8 glasses of water everday. It helps to lose weight quicker.
Foods – Increase action of metabolism increase the weight loss.
So best food to increase metabolism are hot peppers, whole grains, soups, apples, pears, foods high in omega 3’s, foods high in calcium. Look up on google for more of foods that speed up the metabolism.

Speed metabolism and exercises = loss weights quicker.

Breasts, diets can do nothing with them.
You can do nothing about your breasts, building muscles in your chest may can help a little. But not much.

Maybe bras can help them? Push up bras or chicken fillets.
Breasts implant is really expensive and there are few disadvantage.
There are lots of women around have sag breats and men do still find them attractive.

Hope this helps.

Lisa asks…

What do you think is the safest & most effective way to lose weight?

I’ve had a very hard time trying to lose 15 lbs for the past few years. My main problem is commitment. If I’m going to keep trying, I want to make sure I’m not waisting my efforts & that I’m choosing the ideal path to weight loss.I don’t care about how much time it takes, I’m not expecting to lose it all overnight. I’d just like to know which is the safest & most effective method I should be following.

Thank you in advance for your opinions.

Thomas asks…

How can I tell if I am bi-polar or manic-depressive?

A co-worker who has a background in counseling told me today that she thinks that I am bipolar. I am already on medication for clinical depression, but it hasn’t been diagnosed as anything other than a seratonin imbalance. I sleep a normal amount: 6-7 hours a night. I feel good, but not high. I haven’t had a depressive episode since my most recent ex broke up with me for a married man she had been cheating on me with (I call that a mitigating circumstance). The only warning sign that I agreed with (she felt that I was over-confident and moving “a million miles an hour” which I attribute to a new excercise regime and weight loss) was that I spend money compulsively, but I have always been something of a wastrel. Opinions? I can’t afford to see my doctor right now, but am planning on going ASAP.
Telling me that bi-polar and manic-depression are the same thing is not helpful at all. I’m after personal experience and advice here, not help with semantics. So please, if that’s all you have to say, don’t.

I agree that a background in counseling isn’t proper qualification for a diagnosis but that was what sparked this introspection. I’d rather ask professionals and others with similar background and experiences and get told “no, your current meds are fine” (Lexapro 10mg by the way) than not ask and never know for sure.

Symptoms of Bi-polar:

However, see a doctor before self diagnosing or letting a co-worker diagnose you.

My sister was diagnosed as Bi-polar about a year and a half ago.

We had a very abusive childhood and all of us have struggles with Post Traumatic Stress and Depression. My sister seemed more severe. All of her emotions seemed very extreme (good and bad). However, to her, they seemed only slightly stronger than what she observed in others. She drank a lot but assumed she just enjoyed the party lifestyle. Living where she lived, there was a lot of that and from her perspective she didn’t think she partied more than a lot of the people her age, around her.

Prior to the diagnosis for Bi-polar she had been diagnosed as having Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and chronic depression. Looking back it seems that she must have seen the doctor during one of her depressive cycles and it was assumed she was suffering from chronic depression.

She took her depression medication and she just got worse. Finally she attempted suicide. She called me just after she had cut her wrist and taken sleeping pills. I went to her home and took her to the hospital and she was admitted to a psyche ward. After several weeks in the hospital, they were able to get a full picture of her condition and diagnosed her as Bi-polar.

It took several months of therapy and working with her doctors to get the medication right. She had doctors who just wanted to leave her on the medication she was already on and prescribe therapy, but she didn’t believe it was working for her. She insisted they keep trying. She even changed doctors once. Finally she found a doctor and a therapist that she worked well with. She got her medication stabilized.

As her treatment progressed she became more self aware about her body and emotions and how the interacted. She began to be able to catch her cycles early on and get the help she needed to get through them. She is now doing very well, living on her own, supporting herself and going back to school.
