Re: diabetes and weight loss

Hi - just a quick post - I would suggest that the jury is out on the correct diet, with differing advice and science everywhere. Insulin is the issue, whether the receptors, the production, or the insensitivity. So it works logically that eating foods with a low insulin response may be most benefici...

Re: exercise while dieting

Hi, The vibrating plates don't have much to support them for anything over a warm up device, maybe a little to help other areas of muscle units firing, but not much apart from that. I would suggest that they may be a little expensive for home use, too much cost for minimal benefit when there would b...

Re: How do I lose the fat around my belly?

Hi, It may be that you have reached your correct genetic size, and that your body will therefore resist further reductions. It could also be the adipose tissue - the fat storage cells - that are now empty of fat that remain following your weight loss. The only way to reduce this is through surgery -...

Re: Fat binding medication

I would ask the same thing of any such miracle pill:

What is the efficacy of your product?
What are the contraindications?

If they can't provide you with peer reviewed gold standard studies they are working off anecdote...

Re: Put weight on after back surgery

Hi Anthony, I hope you have a speedy recovery! Exercise wise I would suggest seeking out an appropriate rehabilitation specialist. They will be able to let you know exactly what you can and can't do in respect to exercise, and may be able to suggest approaches to ease the numbness. If your exercise ...

Re: Bulimia and weight loss

As Rachel above, help is available. There is the charity approach, your doctor may be able to refer you on through the NHS, and there are private approaches. As this behaviour is relatively new please seek help as soon as possible, to stop the behaviour strengthening and generalising into different ...

Re: Anorexia to over eating with other problems

Hi, I really feel for you. I work with anorexics, including extreme cases. I can only begin to imagine the impact on you. If you cannot get any help through the NHS there are private routes you can take, and also the charities as mentioned. You need the right attention, that's for sure, and there is...

Re: No willpower!

Hi, I help people with this often in my hypnotherapy work. It comes from you learning to have the attachments of 'wanting and liking' for such foods. You need to break that. There are some very simple psychological interventions that you can use in order to break the cycle. Seek a professional for p...

Re: What is a healthy weight

Here are some thoughts. A statistician called Flegal recently caused uproar with her statistical report on millions of people. Have a read of this to give you the heads up: http://www.nature.com/news/the-big-fat-truth-1.13039 If you have a full 'medical MOT' and are in a clean bill of health it is l...
