Allergies And Weight?
I Got All Year Around Allergies Lucky Me! I Had Myself Tested With The Little Shots And Have A Huge Sheet Of Things I Am Allergic Too... I Started To Take Shots For My Allergies But My Insurance Dropped Me And I Had To Stop... It Has Been A While Since My Last Shot Like A Few Months And With Spring Coming Around I Can Feel My Allergies Start To Worsen... But I Am Already Over-Weight And I Was Looking Into The Pills Even Online And They Say Weight Gain... Is There Any That Help Promote Weight Loss As A Side Effect? I Am Not Forsure The Ones Ephedrine Was Listed Or Not Would That Be A Help? Thank You
There aren't any pills that do much to promote weight loss and there are no antihistamines that cause weight loss as a side effect. Ephedrine is not an antihistamine. Ephedrine works as a decongestant Ephedrine and related products only make a small difference in promoting weight loss, but the side effects usually outweigh any benefit. Ephedrine and related products make people feel jittery, get an upset stomach, and it makes it hard to sleep. Few people use these types of products for very long because they make people feel crappy while they are using the pills. You don't need to feel crappy all the time to lose weight.
There's no short cut for weight loss. You have to manage calories and get extra exercise. With or without pills, to lose weight you need to burn more calories than you eat. Read some info on weight loss, and you might be surprised how easy it is to lose weight once you figure out where your calories are coming from.
Does Fiber Help You Lose Weight?
I Have An Average Of One Bowel Movement A Week. It Has Been That Way Since I Was A Child. No I Am 21 Years Old, 5'5'', And Weigh 199 Lbs. The Older I Get The Heavier I Get. Will Taking A Fiber Supplement Help Me Lose Weight? Is It The Miracle I'Ve Been Looking For?
No, fiber is not a miracle in weight loss. They say fiber keeps you feeling full longer, which can curb cravings. It may work and it may not. The result won't be easy weight loss, I'll tell you that much. There's no such thing as easy weight loss.
Which Diet Pill Works Best For You?
I Feel Like Ive Tried Them All But Dont Seem To See A Difference Between Them.
Try a combination of Fahrenheit (metabolism pill for women) and a liquid supplement Bio-Sculpt. Both can be purchased at GNC. The first time that I used this, I lost a total of 8 pounds in two weeks. The best thing about this, is you don't have to change anything about your eating habits. I didn't change anything to my eating habits, I continued to eat the foods that I ate...like fast foods. When I first starting using this, I didn't do much exercise. Yeah, I had three kids the helped me to have some type of cardio....running after them around the house.
What was even better about using Fahrenheit, once I started a daily workout routine, I lost all of my post-pregnancy weight. I even started having definition in abs again. The first time I had been in a swim suit, in front of my friend, she was amazed at how I looked. All of my friends, that don't have kids, keeps asking me "What's your secret". I just tell them "Fahrenheit, it does wonders and you should try it too".
If you stick to it and add in a cardio workout to it, you'll see a difference. Remember to not pay attention to the scale and pay attention to how your clothes fit.
I Need Help With Weight Loss!?
I Need Some Help On Losing Weight. I Weight 240 Pounds And The Doc Man Said I Need To Lose At Least 100 Pounds. I Have Been Fat All My Life And I Don'T Know Where To Begin. I Don'T Have Family Support Like I Would Like To Have. I Come From A Farly Chunky Family. I Need Help! A Friend Of Mine Told Me About This Yahoo Answers And Said To Try This. I Don'T Know What To Do Or Where To Begin I Got Myself A Treadmill At A Garage Sale For $10 If That Says Anything. :( I Don'T Have Any Money And I Am Doing This Solo Because I Have No Family Support. Im In College And I Am A Female. There Is Health Clubs But It Is Too Expansive. I Need Help With Finding A Diet And Exercise Plans And Printable Diet Sheet So I Can Keep Track. Please Help!
If someone tells you that they have a pill or "easy trick" then they are lying to you!
The most important part of weight loss is diet. You should start writing down everything you eat, and the amount of calories in it. Be sure to pay attention to serving size! Try to get as many fresh veggies, with minimal dressings and sauces. Lean meats, like grilled chicken and turkey, are also good. You want to make sure that you always eat AT LEAST 1200 calories a day. There are websites like fitday and thedailyplate that can help you keep track of these things. But the most important thing is the number of calories you eat. You'll feel better if you're eating better, less hungry, so make your calories count with quality food!
But weight loss is not something that happens overnight. The hardest part is not getting discouraged and giving up. You can seek out weight loss internet communities to get a buddy. Other things you can do include keeping up with that notebook of everything you eat and how much you exercise.
You also, at first, should ignore your scale. Generally, when someone starts exercising, their initial gains in muscle weight can offset their losses of fat. So, it is better to use measurements or how clothing fits to tell that you are getting smaller. Try to exercise at least four times a week. Get into a routine with it--the more it is habit, the easier it is to keep up. You can alternate walking and running with going up and down stairs. Push-ups can help with arm strength, and are free!
One of the best ways to stay encouraged is to set mini-goals. Like, aim to walk a mile in under 15 minutes, or to fit into a pair of pants that are too small for you right now. When you achieve a goal, treat yourself to something nice!
You probably will slip up and eat too much some days, or forget to exercise every now and then. But just because you make a mistake doesn't mean you've wiped out all of the good you've already done! Getting back on track is what separates those who lose weight and those who give up and don't. So, if you slip up, just resolve to do better, and then make the effort to do better.
Good luck, and work hard!
Do Type 1 And Type 2 Diabetics Take Insulin Shots?
Or Is It Just Type 1 That Needs Insulin Shots?
both can get to the point where they need it,
Type 1 starts out needing insulin right from the get go.
Type 2 usually starts out on pills and diet and excercise,
and if they dont do well with that, over time will eventually need insulin
I started out at the age of 17 needing pills, and having to control my food intake, but it slowly progressed to both pills and insulin.
And right at this moment, i'm fighting for my life.
An hour and 50 minutes ago, I took the wrong kind of insulin,
and I'm barely hangin on to life. I'm just having to eat and eat high sugar foods, cause i'm crashing right now. If I dont succede, and if i'm not able to eat enough fast enough, I am headed for the ER real soon.
I've got 2 questions up right now on that subject, and am looking for help.

Can I Gain Weight With A High Metabolism?
I Have Always Been Thin But Know It Is Causing Me Health Problems. I Have Been To Doctors I Heard There Is A Weight Gaining Pill. I Asked My Doctor But He Didn'T Know What I Was Talking About Does Anyone Have A Suggestion That Won'T Lead To Further Problems?
Periactin is the weight gaining pill I took. Originally it was an allergy pill. I think it is also a pill that they give to some (not all) people who suffer from anorexia nervosa. It works okay; it increases your appetite but one side effect is it makes you sleep all the time....I guess thats supposed to help you gain the weight.
Will Riding A Bike Help Me Lose Weight?
I Was Wondering If It Would Help Me Lose Weight, Esp In My Legs... Or Would It Just Build Muscle?

Can i give you some tips?
Easiest way to lose weight fast and safely is to cut your calorie intake by eating more on fiber, fruits and vegetables. You'll feel full with fewer calories on them. Fruits, vegetables and fibers are packed with nutrients but less on calories.
I lost 10 pounds in just 2 months using these tips.
Here are Tips to help speed up your metabolism plus help you lose weight without being miserable. they worked for me =)
"Taking the time to relax and savor food increases calorie and fat-burning power by up to 30%", mainstains Marc David, author of The Slow Down Diet( Healing Arts Press, 2005).
The reason: Savoring stimulates the cephalic phase digestive response, or "brain phase" of digestion, which then sets up a slimming chain of events. First, it signals the hypothalamus, the brain's emotion-and-appetite-control center, to trigger the release of the metabolism-reviving thyroid hormone and the pleasure neurochemical cholecystokinin (CCK). In turn, CCK hinders production of the stress hormone cortisol, a known cause of fat accumulation.
1. Outsmart Snack Attacks for 4 hours and Lose Weight
Savoring Berries can oustmart snack attacks for 4 hours and help you shed 5% of your body weight in 6 months. The credit goes to dozens of blood sugar stabilizing antioxidants. Bluberries are so packed with them, just a half cup daily can boost your blood levels by 100%.
2. Fill up on Fiber and Lose Weight Fast
Fill up on Fiber - Foods rich in fiber will make you feel satisfied and help curb your appetite, helping you to lose weight fast and safely - so make sure to pack your diet with fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
3. Boost fat-burning metabolic rate by 50% by sipping coffee
Sipping coffee before a meal can supress appetite by 35%, plus boost fat-burning metabolic rate by 50%, according to extensive research at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. The study-proven dose : 250 mg of caffeine daily, taken either in supplement form or by sipping to cups of coffee or 4 cups of tea.
4. Lose Weight just by eating Yogurt
Yogurt is a calcium-rich food. Research links calcium with lower cortisol production, and it has been proven that women who increase they're intake lose up to 40% more weight than calcium avoiders.
Plus Yogurt has live microorganisms which helps proper digetion and absorption of nutrients we take. Make sure to get yogurts that says "with live microorganisms in labels/packages".
5. Try this Hunger-Taming Trick
Cut fat and you'll cut cravings. Consuming a high-fat diet may supress your body's natural satiety signals, according to a new study from Pennsylvania State University. Animals who'd been consuming a diet rich in fat ended up eating 40% more of a high-calorie snack than those on average diets. Keep your fat intake to less than 30% of total calories.
6. Feel full on less food.
Apples are rich in pectin, a soluble fiber that slows the digestive process, so you'll feel full on less food.The result: You'll eat just enough food to make you happy, reducing calorie intake.
7. Studies suggest people pursuing a healthy weight could lose more weight and burn more fat by including 24 ounces a day of low fat or fat-free milk in their reduced-calorie diet, instead of 8 ounces or less.
8. Speed fat burn with Cranberries.
The ascorbic acid in cranberries helps thin liver bile, making it easier for the organ to emulsify fat so so it can be quickly flushed out of the system rather than stored in cells.
9. Boost your protein intake and lose almost a pound a week without hunger.
You can try protein smoothies. Packed with nutrients and low in calories, smoothies are a fast, easy and great tasting way to achieve good health.
You can find a wide collection of healthy fruit smoothies at : http://fruitsmoothierecipe.bravehost.com
By boosting your protein intake from the typical 15% of total calories to 30%, you may be able to cut your daily calorie intake by 440-enough to lose almost a pound a week without hunger, according to a recent University of Washigton study. "A high-protein diet appears to fool the brain into thinking you've eaten more than you have," says the study's lead author, Scott Weigle, M.D., a professor of endocrinology at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Stick with lean protein rather than high-fat, artery clogging meat and dairy products. For breakfast, use low-fat milk instead of water in your oatmeal and sprinkle nuts on top. Eat plenty of beans, fish and skinless chicken breast.
10. To counteract a binge, keep your body's fat-burning furnace running on full blast by drinking Green Tea.
Green Tea contains caffeine and the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) , which is proven to boost metabolic rate. In fact, in a recent 3 month study, participants who took Green Tea extract lost 4.6% of their body weight without changing their diet. To get the benefit, drink at least 3 cups a day.
Whenever I ate too much, I just drink green tea and I don't have to worry gaining weight.
11. Speed weight loss and double energy levels by eating Coconuts.
This tropical treats contain medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), a unique fat that is shuttled straight to the liver and immediately burned for fuel. Research shows this little detour revs metabolic rate by up to 50%, speeding weight loss and doubling energy levels
Plus my favorite tip : Before you eat, drink a glass of water. This will help you feel fuller without additional calories (water has no calories). And Satisfy sweet cravings and keep your stomach full longer by eating all-natural fruits.

??????Weight Loss Help??????
Hi! I'M A 5'6, 154 Pound, 13 Year Old Female. I Have Loads Of Muscle Because I Play Soccer So That Is One Of The Reasons I Am Heavy, But I Have About 15-20 Pounds Of Fat. I Don'T Eat A Lot (About 1000 Calories A Day)So I Am A Little Confused On Why I Gained Weight But It Makes Sense At The Same Time.
I Ordered Some Jillian Micheals Dvds (Ripped In 30, 6 Week 6 Pack, Yoga Meltdown And No More Trouble Zones), And Tae-Bo:Cardio Inferno. I Also Have A Mini- Trampoline, Jump Rope, A Treadmill And An Exercise Bike. Can You Make Me A Diet And Exercise Program With What I Have So I Can Lose Some Inches On My Thighs (25 Inches) And About 15 Pounds Overall In 2 Months?
Part of the problems sounds like you are eating too little, your body needs some fuel and if you don't eat enough it panics and takes on more calories and fat from the food you are eating. I would try eating a healthy balanced diet so some carbs, you need these for energy particularly if you are exercising lots. Then you will need protein and fruit and veg but be careful with the fruit, it is full of sugar and it is a common mistake that people make to eats lots of it when they are trying to lose weight! you also need some fats like olive oil to stay healthy. so a good diet plan would be porridge with fruit, soup with brown bread and then for supper steamed veg, grilled chicken and brown rice or something like a stir fry!
As for exercise you should do about 20 mins a day where you raise your heart rate to lose weight but you have to listen to your body, if you have a day where you need to rest then rest. things like yoga are a good way to balance out the cardio and it will improve posture and flexibility!
hope this helps : )
Can Type 1 Diabetes Be Treated With Insulin Pills?
Ok, Heres The Thing... I Really Want To Be A Truck Driver, And I Cant Drive Out Of State While Im Taking Insulin Shots...
Currently In The Past Year, I Haven'T Had Any Med'S. Cost'S Too Much... 1200 Per Month In Meds, And 4000 Or More To Visit My Doctor... She Runs Every Test She Can... Im About To Get Back To My Old Job And Get My Medical Insurance Back, And Go Get My Meds And See My Doctor... Ive Been Rationing Out Novolog On The Bad Days...
Lately, Just From Changing My Diet, And Exercising, My Blood Sugar Is Around The 180'S.. Before, Evenn On The Shots It Was In The 300-400 Range...
So If I Keep Working Out, And Eating Right, Is It Possible To Take Pills Instead Of Shots...
By The Way, I Know What Diabetes, I Know The Difference In The Types.. I Dint Need Stupid Responses Like That...
If you know the difference between the two types of diabetes then you obviously know that the only thing that they have in common is the title 'diabetes'. You would know that as a type one diabetic you no longer produce insulin and thus have to take it via injection, and that a type two diabetic can still produce insulin but cannot process it correctly thus needing oral medication to help manage it.
So then you would already have the answer to your question, that the oral medication that type two diabetics take would be absolutely useless to you, a type one insulin dependent diabetic.
If you can't be a truck driver and be on insulin then guess what? You either don't get to be a truck driver or you get to be a dead truck driver. Pick one. What you've been doing is dangerous - you cannot use type two tricks to treat your type one diabetes. If you continue to do so and insist on going on the road in a large truck then you are putting yourself and OTHERS at risk.
