As a child and teenager, she kept her weight at healthy levels. “After graduating from college and getting a 9-to-5 desk job, though, that’s when I ballooned,” she says. Exercise had been nudged off her calendar — she had been active in her younger days but now she was tired after work. In her free time, she went out with friends instead of working out. Between her workplace cafeteria and meals in restaurants, she was tempted to turn to unhealthy foods. AN UNEXPECTED CONNECTION MAKES THE DIFFERENCE But in 2013 she … [Read more...] about How did Hoang Nguyen lose 40 pounds? She danced it off.
Losing inches but not pounds
Not being able to attend face-to-face meetings doesn't mean you can't get the benefits of joining an organized diet group. All you need is an internet connection. Online diet programs let you sign in for information and motivation at any hour of the day or night. Participating in a web-based weight-loss program can be helpful in many ways -- not just with weight loss, but also with weight-loss maintenance and improving lifestyle habits that might have led to your weight gain. There are many types of online programs, some from the same companies that offer in-person sessions, and others from successful diet doctors, for instance. So it makes sense to compare choices, especially those with a monthly fee. Basic offerings tend to include diet information and planning, and goal setting -- such as losing inches as well as pounds, and even lowering blood pressure and other cardiovascular disease risk factors.

By Kathryn Ferguson The Washington Post Wed., Aug. 1, 2018 For nearly five months in late 2016 and early 2017, I had a sinking feeling that something was desperately wrong with my 10-year-old daughter, but the doctors and specialists we visited during that time didn’t have any answers. She was in a medical free fall: She couldn’t eat, was losing weight and her hair was falling out. But her only medical complaint was “I’m nauseous.” I’ve never been to medical school, but after doing a lot of research on her symptoms, I finally diagnosed Norah, my tennis-playing, Minecraft-building, “Hamilton”-singing, school-loving daughter with a non-body-image eating disorder that began just before her 11th birthday. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental-health condition, which is why every parent needs to know our story. If I had been asked to list my parenting worries, my daughter dying from a heart attack … [Read more...] about Not all eating disorders are related to body image
FACTS and figures about Donald Trump's health were released in January 2018 after concerns for the President were raised. His doctor returned a positive report on the 45th President's wellbeing, with one slight blot being an issue of his weight - but how tall is he and what's his BMI? How tall is Donald Trump? President Donald Trump is 75 inches tall, or 6ft 3 inches. He is a taller than average man, although is still short of the world's tallest man who was 8ft 11 inches. Trump is about half the height of an average African elephant and four inches short of the average basketball player's height. He is too heavy for his height, the test found, and Dr Ronny Jackson said the US President, who weighs 17 stone, needs to lose 10 to 15 pounds over the next year. The 71-year-old's body mass index (BMI) of 29.9 puts him in the overweight category - and on the brink of obese - for his height at 6ft 3in. He is known to enjoy high-fat foods like fried chicken, hamburgers and steak - and … [Read more...] about How tall is Donald Trump and what is 75 inches in feet?

It's Calories In Vs. Calories out. Calories aren't the only thing that matters when it comes to the liklihood of diet success, but when it comes to down to it, calories are the most important thing. In short, the only way of successfully losing weight is by creating a calorie deficit (i.e. burning off more calories than you're taking in,) however, when we find we're not losing weight, it's a little too easy just to say "You're eating too much!"
