But why aren’t you losing weight? Before we go into the possible reasons why you’re not losing weight, let’s try to understand how our body works. Think of the body as something that stores energy with two components: One is fat mass; and the rest of the body made up of fat-free mass. The body is mostly made up of water, but it also includes bone and muscle protein. Take note that fat contains more energy and that it needs more energy to burn.

Sally Donnelly spent years missing out on family memories, and she just felt “horrible.” But now that she has lost 68 pounds over the last year, that will all change in July.“I have a 14-year-old grandson and he lives in Texas. When he would come up in the summer, I was too heavy to really enjoy going out, swimming, fishing and doing all the things that I know I was capable of doing, but couldn’t in my body. So, he hasn’t seen me since last summer. I won’t show him a picture of me, I won’t FaceTime with him. I won’t do anything because he is just going to be so shocked when he arrives in July.

I’ll be the first to tell you that I’ve been there. For most of my young adult life, I weighed in just under the average for my age and height. Then, when I turned 25 I started taking an anxiety medication that catapulted the scale upwards a full 45 pounds — despite not having changed my diet or exercise routine.

Over the … [Read more...] about I’m doing everything right, but I’m still not losing weight. What’s going on?
Metformin is a drug that doctors use to treat people with type 2 diabetes. It works alongside other medication and insulin to lower blood sugar in people with the condition. Doctors do not usually prescribe metformin for type 1 diabetes. They can sometimes prescribe it for women with polycystic ovarian syndrome, although this use is not approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Similarly, the FDA has not sanctioned metformin to help those wanting to shed the pounds when they are overweight or obese. In this article, we take a look at the impact metformin has on weight, as well as how the drug is used. People with type 2 diabetes have lost weight from taking metformin, but they are not the only ones to benefit from the drug in this way. A study involving people who were overweight or obese and had insulin resistance showed that they lost weight while taking metformin. While some evidence suggests that metformin does lead to weight loss, neither doctors or … [Read more...] about Does metformin help you lose weight?
