Foods that can help reduce weight after 40

You may want to try consulting with an endocrinologist. This is the type of doctor that would diagnose a problem with your hormonal system. I think it would be worth while to rule out any type of thyroid problem because these are the most reasons why people will experience changes in their metabolism.

Im trying to lose weight. Do you have any advice?

I am a relatively healthy eater. I exercise quiet frequently 4+x a week and I’m at an OK weight. I’ve always had trouble losing that last 510 pounds and keeping it off. I tend to get really motivated and then loose it around the time of my period. Is there an all natural weight loss supplement that you can recommend for me? Is HamchoSlim or Hoodia something that I should try?

For starters, make sure you are doing a healthy mix of both cardio […]

I have been on a weight loss and exercise program for approximately 6 weeks. I have followed the program, and have not cheated. I walk every day. Yet, I have not lost any weight. Could there be a medical reason for my inability to lose weight? Thanks

I’m 215 pounds as of today feb 21 2009. i exercise 4 to 5 times a week. I weighed between 185 and 190 in 2006 before i suddenly began gaining weight unexpectedly. i never before watched what i ate but I always exercised just to stay fit but ate whatever i wanted and never gained weight and my job consist of being on my feet all day walking in a circle at an hot iron foundry and lifting constant heavy objects so I sweat a lot. so i don’t get how I’m gaining weight. I cut out all fried foods no sodas and I eat 3 to 4 fruits everyday and vegetables every other day for the last 2 years now. I bake all my meats so I don’t know whats going on that I cant lose weight. This has been going on for almost 3 years now I went from a size 36 to a 40. Are there any doctors that specialize in helping someone like me. I’m 6 feet tall and 25 years old
