    My daughter is 6 years old and weighs around 6 stone, I have tried to put her on a diet but it hasn't worked, she will just kick and scream for food and I have to keep buying her new clothes because she just outgrows her old ones quickly, sometimes I have to keep pulling her trousers up because her bumcrack shows because her trousers are to small. She will not eat many fruits or vegetables, she just wants sweets and crisps and she will kick of If she doesn't get it, I'm a single mum and I don't know what to do

  • Is it safe for me to do a 24 hour water fast?

    Best answer: Yes - I fast regularly. There's a lot of stigma with fasting due to anorexia, but if especially if you are overweight fasting can be beneficial. Also, I find fasting brings me focus and energy in the morning which is why I intermittently fast daily (I don't eat for 14-18 hours) and on weekends I typically... show more
    Best answer: Yes - I fast regularly. There's a lot of stigma with fasting due to anorexia, but if especially if you are overweight fasting can be beneficial. Also, I find fasting brings me focus and energy in the morning which is why I intermittently fast daily (I don't eat for 14-18 hours) and on weekends I typically go a full day or two. There is lots of evidence for fasting being good - just don't get carried away. The human body was not naturally made to eat 3 times a day -- in a more primitive setting if the human body needed to eat that much to survive it would be super inconvenient and difficult to live, as finding food was typically on a hunt and catch basis.

    However you may not need to fast if you are just worried about one day of eating too much, sometimes if I eat too many calories one day (like over 150/200 cal) I subtract that from the next day's calorie intake.

    Hi - I’m a 20 year old male that weighs 182 pounds. I’m basically skinny-fat. I have twig thin arms & legs, but a little bit if belly & chest fat. I’m a vegetarian but I don’t consume that much protein. I’d say about 30g daily max. What kinds of diet changes would you suggest for slimming out my torso & getting rid of my bell fat? Would increasing my protein intake help? Is it possible to lose a little bit of belly fat without an intense exercise regime? I just work so much that I rarely have the time or energy to exercise. But I’m open to trying to work more exercise into my schedule. What do you suggest for getting rid of a little belly fat?

    Best answer: Diet is key, even more important than exercise. I found that I can quickly lose body fat by making some very small changes:

    - Cutting out white bread and sugar. Cutting out sugar is tough at first but once you stick with it, you'll find that it becomes hard to eat things high in sugar as they'll taste overwhelming. I also find eliminating sugar means I never have severe hunger pangs, especially in the mornings.

    - Drinking lots of water. Your body can confuse hunger with dehydration. If you find yourself hungry for no good reason, try drinking water and waiting 20 minutes.

    - Don't eat late i.e. just before going to sleep. Try eating dinner at a reasonable hour.

    - Stick to lean meats, vegetables, and fruit. You don't need to go crazy and treat this as a diet, it's remarkably easy to do, unlike some fad cabbage soup diet.

    As with everything, moderation is key. Having a chocolate bar one day isn't going to magically destroy all your progress but having ten of them will.

  • Am I overweight?

    Best answer: Those who have been calling you fat have serious mental issues. Your body mass index is around 17 kg/m^2, when it should be AT LEAST 18.6 kg/m^2. You are quite underweight and you should put on some weight. You should weigh AT LEAST 52.5/53 kg. If you are a man, a good BMI value should be around 22.5 kg/m^2. So... show more
    Best answer: Those who have been calling you fat have serious mental issues.

    Your body mass index is around 17 kg/m^2, when it should be AT LEAST 18.6 kg/m^2.

    You are quite underweight and you should put on some weight.

    You should weigh AT LEAST 52.5/53 kg.

    If you are a man, a good BMI value should be around 22.5 kg/m^2. So an ideal weight value for you would be around 63 kg.

    If you are a woman, a good BMI value should be around 21 kg/m^2. So an ideal weight value for you would be around 59 kg.

    Today at college, me and my friend were working in the library. I was really hungry so I lied to my friend about not having any breakfast and asked him if he had any food. He said that he had 2 sandwiches that he d packed for lunch but that was it so I asked if I could have one. He gave me the sandwich and I ate it but I still felt hungry so I asked him if he was even going to eat the second one and he said that he was going to eat it later but that I could have it if I want. I felt greedy because he s a really skinny guy already and he said he doesn t ever breakfast so me eating his lunch means he ll only get to eat once today whereas I ve had breakfast, his lunch, and I m probably going to make my own lunch too. Am I greedy?
