Alli Diet Pill???
I Have Been On A Diet For About 3 Months...I Want To Go Down Three Sizes...Ive Gone Down 1 And Then I Kinda Hit A Plateau So I Decided Hey Why Not Try Alli...Has Anyone Had Any Experience With This?? I Have Been On It A Week And No Bad Side Effects...I Read Horror Stories But None Of That Has Happened To Me...Who Has Used And Had Success?
I havent used it but I know that the main problems that people suffer is all their fault. They think they can take the pill and eat anything they want hoping for miracle weight loss. You cannot eat anything that contains fat because alli blocks the absorption of fat so anything you eat will go right through you. Make sure you follow directions and dont take extra doses and you should be fine. Exercise is also essential to weight loss so get to it.
Whats A Good Supplement To Help Lose Weight And Build Muscle Combined With A Healthy Diet And Workout Plan?
I Took Triple X Mass Last Year But I Was In Much Better Shape So I Took It To Help Me Gain Muscle, Now That Iv Quit Working Out For A Year Im Trying To Get Back Into Shape And I Wanted To Add A Helpful Supplement To Help Move My Progress Along. Any Suggestions?
protein is your best bet, you'll get what you lost back in no time. your muscle has muscle memory so when you get back in the gym after a year, you'll get right back into the shape you were, and then some. so get your whey protein and drink it IMMEDIATELY after your workouts. that will help you build muscle and help your diet out. diet pills and supplements dont really work, and if they do...its only temporary.

How To Gain Weight And Muscle Fast!?
I Am So Skinny (I Always Get Rude Comments And They Bother Me As Much As It Would If A Overweight Person Got Comments About There Weight)And I Would Love To Gain Weight And Muscle I Have Tried Working Out And Eating Breakfast,Lunch And Dinner Healthy Foods..I Even Tried Supplements Nothing Works Help!
Gaining muscle takes the same amount of focus and preparation as
losing weight. Some important facts about gaining muscle:
•You can't necessarily gain muscle without gaining some fat as well.
•There are no magic foods, powders or pills that will allow you to
gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. Some people can do this
naturally (again, the genes), but most will gain some fat along with
•Your body is very different from a bodybuilder--trying to gain mass
to look like them is not the best idea. They have different muscle
fibers than you and some may even be getting a little help from
•If you're a teenager, you'll have a hard time changing your body
dramatically. It's changing constantly and it will change even more as
the years pass.
•Gaining weight requires eating more and lifting more
Gaining muscle requires that you eat more calories than you burn. For
those with high metabolisms, that may seem impossible, but if you try
a few of these tricks, you'll find that adding calories to your day is
easier than you think:
•Choose calorie-rich foods like granola, bagels, biscuits, avocados,
olives, corn, meat, nuts, peanut butter, milk, yogurt and cheese.
•Add extra calories to your meals by using milk instead of water for
soups, sauces and hot cereals.
•Sprinkle powdered milk into casseroles.
•Add calorie-rich foods (like avocado, cheese and dressing) to
sandwiches and salads
•Mix beans, meat or cheese into pasta or side dishes
•Snack on yogurt, shakes, crackers and dip
•Keep a food diary for a week or so to get an idea of what you're
eating and where you can add more calories
The trick is to add calories without adding too much saturated fat.
You can also consider downing smoothies or meal replacement shakes in
Lift, Lift, Lift
Once you get your calories under control, you need to start lifting
weights. This will help you gain more muscle and help minimize the
amount of fat you gain (although you should expect to gain some fat as
well). Folks trying to gain muscle should:
•Lift heavy. This means lifting enough weight that you can only
complete about 6-8 repetitions of each exercise. The last few reps
should be difficult--the last one should be really hard, but not
•Have longer recovery periods between sets
•Have more recovery days between workouts
•Use spotters to avoid injury
•Continue with cardio, but keep it at maintenance level--around 2-3
days of cardio a week to keep your heart in shape
•Start with a full body program 2-3 nonconsecutive days a week, if
you're a beginner. Allow your body a few weeks to get used to lifting
weights before you tackle more intense routines.
Alli Diet Pill Question?
If Any Of You Have Taken Alli, I Need Your Help!!
I Understand That You Can Only Eat 15 Or Less Grams Of Fat Per Meal When Taking Alli. To Date, I Have Never Eaten That Much In One Sitting. My Breakfast Usually Contains 2 Or Less Grams, Lunch Between 6 And 10, And Dinner About 12 Or 13. So I Am Doing Well With The Low-Fat Diet.
What I Don'T Understand Is The Oily Stool. For Those Of You Who Have Taken It, How Much Oil Did You Pass In Your Stool. It Seems I'M Passing A Lot For All The Fat I Am Consuming. I Know That Means It'S Working, But...It'S Concerning!
There are two possibilities here:
1. Alli usually blocks about 25% of fat absorption. In your body its blocking more. This can be a possibility, but it would be a very very rare one unless you are taking more Alli than you are supposed to.
2. You are having more fat. Unless your food is measured and written down, you are probably consuming more fat then you think you are. One serving is what the box says, not how much you think one serving should be. I'm not saying this is the case for you, but it is the case for 90% of people on yahoo answers. They think a serving of cereal is a whole bowl, not what the box says.
But either way, whatever the case may be, I don't understand why you don't just reduce you fat intake. If your fat intake is 15 grams as you say it is and your stools are very oily, why don't you just reduce your fat intake even more? Either that or just stop taking it.
You need to understand something. Alli is a half strength version of a prescription drug called Xenical. Xenical was never ever popular for a reason. Now you know the reason. The side effects are horrible, I don't even understand why anyone would want to put up with them rather then just put in a little bit of hard work.
Think about it a little bit. If you really think you cannot lose the weight without Alli, good luck keeping off the weight, because its probably not going to stay off. Losing weight and keeping it off is a long term problem, stop looking at short term solutions. You need a lifestyle change.
What Should I Use To Lose Weight And Build Muscle?
Im 6Ft6 And Around 280Lbs, Looking To Lose Weight And Build Muscle, Im Not Really Paying Attention To A Diet, Just Exercising. I Exercise Every Day, Ill Do Upper Body Workouts, Then The Next Day Lower, What Should I Take To Help Me Out? What I Mean By That Question, What Kind Of Shakes Or Supplements. Right Now All Im Using Is Muscle Milk, And Yes Yes I Know That Shits Horrible, Hint Why Im Asking,
I recommend Whey Protein powders instead of muscle milk and if you want a strength boost try creatine but make sure you measure everything properly and get your cycling correct, as well as taking breaks from it every so often. Neither of these will make you lose weight though. try more cardio instead of lifting all time if you wish to cut weight
Are There Any Bipolar Medicines That Elevate Mood & Causes Weight Loss?
I'M Currently On Abilify & Prozac.. Just Started The Prozac A Few Days Ago So Not Sure Yet How It'S Going To Work... But The Abilify Really Calmed The Manic Episodes But Did Little For The Depression.. But The Truth Is, I Like Being Manic Because I Feel Good & Have Energy. As Opposed To Laying In Bed For Weeks When In A Depressive Stage... I Was Wondering If There Were Any Medicines That Might Elevate My Mood To Give Me The Energy I Have When I'M Manic... I Know That'S Crazy But I Have Been Depressed For So Long That I'M Desperate To Feel Better... And I Am Asking About A Medicine That Causes Weight Loss Because I Was Once Prescribed Symbyax And Gained 60 Lbs In 6 Months.. I Got Up To 223 Pounds & That Made Me Very Depressed.. I Am Now Down To 175 Pounds But At Only 5' 4&Quot; I Am Still Overweight If Not Obese.. I Walk Two Miles Daily & Watch What I Eat But I Have Gotten Stuck At This Weight... It'S Probably To Good To Be True But Is There A Medicine Out There That Does These Things? For The Record, I Have Taken Symbyax, Lexapro, Lithium & Zoloft.. The Lexapro Elevated Me But I Was Still Depressed. The Lithium Curved My Appetite But Didn'T Help Much... Zoloft Didn'T Do Anything & As I Said Before, The Symbyax Made Me Fat. Any Suggestions Are Greatly Appreciated. I Am Hoping That Prozac Is The Right Medicine For Me But Would Like To Explore My Options Incase It'S Not. Thank U In Advance For The Answers!!!
The abilify, being an atypical antipsychotic drug, promotes high blood sugar which can lead to diabetes and also weight gain in the long run.( Swimming is easier on the joints if you are over weight, otherwise you risk osteoarthritis. Consider bicycling also, with a bike with wide tires to absorb the bumps.)
Too many people are given the 'bipolar' diagnosis, so I do not know if you really have it.
Having a positive academic goal that you are really motivated to learn can make you happy and improve your physical fitness. At the very least, pick a foreign language and spend time with it at least 5 days a week. This kind of hobby, within a few years can give you extra job skills without a mass of student loans to pay off.
Since your body is becomming a toxic dump for psych-pharmaceutical, I recommend that you get a book on "Human Anatomy and Physiology", Barron's has a cheap EZ way text, an older used edition by Elaine Marieb can be had cheap at Amazon.com. The gold standard in physiology is by Guyton and Hall, it also can be had cheap as a used older edition from Amazon.com . Making this a second hobby could lead to a career.

How To Gain Muscle, Without Using Supplements?
I Am 16 And I Have Been Working Out For 2 Years 3 Times A Week
I Am 140 Lbs And I Am Trying To Gain Muscle I Just Got Whey Protein From Walmart And Don'T Know How To Use It Or When Take It. If I Start Using It When I Will Start Realizing If It Works Or Not.
And How Long Should I Work Out. Is 2 Hours A Lot?
Training 3 times per week (with a day off in-between) is good, but 2 hours is far too long to be training. You want to hit the weight heavy and aim to complete your weights session in an hour. It’s not quantity but quality that counts.
Whey protein you want to be consuming straight after your workout. Approx 30g mixed in 250-300ml water (check the packaging of your protein powder to their guidelines)
If your having trouble gaining weight then you simply need to eat more. Aim to eat 5-6 times per day, healthy meals. If are unable to eat that many times then eat 3 times but also have 2/3 weight gain shakes in-between to increase your daily calorie intake. You don’t need to buy the expensive weight gain shakes/powders sold in the shops (as most of them are full of sugar). You can make them at home in a smoothie maker/blender using healthy ingredients such as, milk, bananas, peanut butter, ground oat powder, tablespoon of organic flaxseed oil, protein powder etc.
Train hard and eat every few hours. Do that and not only will you gain weight, but also muscle.
How To Gain Weight And Build Muscle?
You must understand that none of this is going to happen fast or easy. Second, it is not just appearances. Your body is your dwelling place for the rest of this life.
Most people emphasize the arms, abs, and pectoral muscles because they like the appearance.
Upper body is really not as significant as most think.
The larger muscle groups are more critical to your long term development and your health.
There are some things that you need to take into account in your early training to prevent injury and get better results sooner.
New muscle needs to develop "infrastructure" meaning blood supply first. You should start with very light weight and high reps and increase in reps for a while. How long that is depends on your age and physical condition. For most people that would be at least 1 month. The other thing you should do is to strengthen your shoulder rotator cuffs. People who get injured there may not be doing anything much for a year. You can find exercises for that on the web. Be sure you do this to give yourself years of training stability.
Running is good for cardio but does not develop strength or muscle mass.
You might consider running the stairs or stadium bleachers if you have been running for a while.
The single best thing you can do is not something which appeals to most people. Full squats will do a huge amount for your legs but also for your chest, heart and lungs. Paul Anderson the great American weightlifting champion said that " If you do not bend your legs and do those squats, you will never reach your potential."
After you get the beginning conditioning done, you can go to more weight and lower reps.
The other thing is not to neglect your other infrastructure, heart and lungs. Cardio should be part of every workout. Cardio will give you the endurance necessary for serious training. You can run, jump rope, use an elliptical (best), or a stair climber, or stationary bike for cardiovascular training.
Your legs and chest development are closely connected. Squats are a must from the beginning. More or less the same thing there.
In general, you need to do something for each and every muscle group with more concentration on your legs at the beginning.
Do not neglect your abs and lower back because they protect your spine from injury. Injury is the worst enemy in fitness of any kind.
Strenuous exercise will require you to eat a little differently. Nuts are a good protein supplement (about 25% by weight which is equal to any kind of meat). You must also eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Most people need about 50 grams of protein per day. You do need to consume more protein with hard training but there are lots of veg sources such as nuts and soy. When training very hard you will need about 150 grams a day. Without working with weights, you may only need about 100 grams. Soy, peanuts, and beans are all legumes; to complete the protein you must eat tree nuts and/or seed proteins with them. You really do not need those fancy supplements and some of them can damage your kidneys.
Your body and your mind are both gifts from God. Make the most of both.
In any event, good luck to you. The decision to improve yourself is always a good one.

Does Anyone Know Where I Can Buy Ephedrine?
I Am Looking For A Good Source Of Pure Ephedrine, I Have Been Told That It Is The Strongest Legal Weight Loss Tablet That You Can Buy.
Any Help Would Be Usefull.
It is everywhere in Canada. Lipo 6x and hydroxy cut hardcore are supposed to be good. Why not use those. Weight loss should be a gradual thing. Also if your diet isn't in check the weight will come back or the pills won't work that well. Maybe try an atkins diet. People seem to be doing okay with them.
Help With Lithium Weight Gain And Another Question?
I Have Tried So Many Meds For My Bipolar And Lithium Seems To Really Be The One This Time. The Bad Side....I Am Gaining Weight! 10 Lbs Already!!!
I Exercise, Eat Right And Drink Lots Of Water And Yet This Weight Keeps Creeping Up On Me. I Hate This Cause I Just Lost 40 Lbs Before I Was On Lithium And I Don'T Want To Gain It Back.
I Want To Know If I Should Ask A Doc For A Med To Help Keep The Weight Off And If So What Med? I Really Dont Know Too Much About Medicine. Do You Take Anything With Lithium To Keep The Weight Off.?
Like I Said I Do Eat Right And Exercise And Drink Lots Of Water But It Seems Like That Is Not Enough.
Should I Ask For Something To Help Keep The Weight Off That Is Safe To Take With Lithium? Do You Personally Take Something That Helps You With Lithium Weight Gain?Any Help Would Be Appreciated. Thanks!
Lithium is known to cause weight gain.
It also causes the the tissues to hold on to extra water.
Altho, it might be a good idea to ask your doctor to perform a Thyroid function test, because Lithium can sometimes interfere with the Thyroid function causing Hypothyroidism.
This condition can cause weight gain if you have an underactive thyroid.
It would be best to discuss with you doctor about how safe it is to take something to help keep the weight off! Keep up with the excercise and keeping hydrated.
Cartain weight loss medications could interfere with the absortion of the Lithium, which would nnot be a good idea.
