    Best and worst workouts

    Jogging on a hard surface will eventually cause orthopedic problems. Talk to any knee and hip replacement surgeon and you will find out that jogging will eventually result in either a hip replacement, knee replacement or both. They recommend against it. I jogged for 5 years and eventually found that pain in my knees told me to stop. I lost no inches around the waist, had a pulse of 62 and had to take blood pressure medicine anyway (heredity).

    Losing fat as a young teenager

    So I'm 15 this year and I basically want to be more fit and look better. I wouldn't consider myself unhealthy or obese but I'm, to a certain extent, overweight . I'm 173cm tall and I'm 70kg. A couple months ago, I got myself checked and I had 20% body fat. My main insecurity is the fat around my belly and waist, as they're quite chubby. I did try some dieting but I came to realise that it's not that healthy as a growing teenager (I'm not taller than my dad yet and....

    Is it anorexia nervosa?

    I don't want my family to know which is the reason I decided to consult online. Lately, I've been rather conscious of my weight. I'm 16 years old, about 5'1, and I now weigh 42.5 kg after going on a tremendous diet, never really eating properly. Here's my eating routine: I either eat an apple or drink coffee/green tea for breakfast. Snack includes either 1 orange or about a palm-ful of almonds and raisins. When I feel like eating something sweet (not everyday), I eat dates, sometimes....

    I need to lose at least 40 lbs and I'd appreciate a diet outline...

    I bought a recumbent stationary cardio exercise bike that will arrive in a few days. This will be my main form of exercise for the time being. I understand some of the basics of dieting and exercise, and I know that you shouldn't try to lose more than a few pounds a week. I see a lot of helpful suggestions for this topic but very few, if any, actual diet outlines offered. I'm the type that needs to see a specific food and portion, not just generalizations such as fruits, grains, proteins....

    Loosing Weight Feeling Better

    Almost 50 but I feel like 60. My MR says my symptoms of feeling fatigued, foggy, not able to loose weight, depression, pain, constant heartburn, are all "normal symptoms of getting older" maybe menopause. I went to to see an ND last week and although she is willing to get down to the real reasons of my symtoms, she wants me to do food allergy testing (expensive), environmental allergy testing, and I am still feeling frustratied. I know none of this is an easy fix but I believe I need to....

    Hello all, I've been searching online for natural fat loss supplement. There is a huge list of products that promise efficient weight loss effects in a short period of time, but from what I read most of them are not made from 100% natural ingredients and may have weird side effects.
