Question: I have lost 40 lbs in the last year and a half and have platued at 200 lbs. I try to eat as healthy as I can and excersize 30 mins to an hour an half a day of cardio (power 90, tae-bo, treadmill) I think it is VERY AWKWARD for someone to plateau at 200 lbs at 5'5. -I don't drink soda. -Eat limited carbs -no pizza or fast food -eat between 1000-1200 calories a day I even take diet pills now (Hydroxycut until I get my order of Stimex-es) What more could I do? I have only been losing 1lb a month!

First off, congratulations on your weight loss! 40 pounds is a great start and you should be very proud of yourself! Second, please don't take the diet pills. This stuff is all crap that will make you lose water weight, but don't help much with actual fat loss. The old "EVA" stack (the original Xenodrine) would help a little, but the danger of the supplements is why they're no longer on the market, and the benefit they gave wasn't as much as you'd think. I used to be a professional bodybuilder and am currently a personal trainer who specializes in helping people lose 100 pounds and more. I have a bachelor's in exercise and kinesthetics, and a master's in nutrition. I have 20 minutes before my next client, so I hope that I can get this all out in time. #1: Diet is 80-85% of your success. You need to know your body composition. You need to calculate your BMR based on lean body mass (use the Katch-McArdle formula for accuracy and don't forget to multiply the amount of calories you get by the exercise multiplier to get your TDEE, which is your maintenance level). Since you've probably been eating too few calories, take a few weeks to slowly add calories to your diet until you're at your TDEE. Eat your TDEE for a couple of weeks. Then, ensure that you never eat fewer calories than 80% of this number. Actually, 80% of this number is your target caloric intake for the following 4-6 weeks (or your next plateau). When you hit that mark (4-6 weeks or a plateau), you need to recalculate your TDEE and eat that number for two weeks. This will trick your metabolism into speeding up for a little while longer and keeping it from adapting to your lower caloric intake. I know this isn't complete, so please bear with me and check my other posts. You need to eat five meals a day. Whenever you go longer than four hours without food, your body starts to go into starvation mode, which means it will store calories eaten as fat, making your life harder. It's hard to get used to this, so if you take an hour on a weekend and plan your meal plan for the next week, you should be ok. I like to be generic with my plan: 10 meals with chicken, 6 meals with salmon, 2 meals with turkey, etc. Then, on Sunday, I'll cook 10 chicken servings and 3 salmon servings (I don't like to let fatty fish sit in the fridge after it's cooked). Now, since I've hinted at what to eat, you need to make sure to eat a lean protein, a fibrous carb, and a low-GI carb with every meal. An example of this is salmon, a salad, and a sweet potato. Another would be tuna (protein) on 100% whole wheat bread (fiber) with lettuce and tomato (low GI carb). You want to limit fats to the good fats found in cold water fish, ground flax seed, seed oils (limit these, but you need omega-6 fats), and olive oil. Stay away from refined fats and definitely stay away from anything hydrogenated, like margarine. You shouldn't worry about staying away from carbs. Carbs have been getting a bad rap these last few years. What you do want to avoid is refined carbs: while flour, enriched flour (even enriched whole wheat flour), high fructose corn syrup (I HATE THIS STUFF!!), and refined sugars. I also recommend staying away from sugar alcohols, as they have stopped fat loss in many of my clients. #2: Exercise... You need to work out six days a week. Lift light weights for three of those days, cardio for the other three , and rest on the seventh. Don't worry about getting bulked up from lifting. You have to specifically lift to get big. Trust me here. As a professional bodybuilder, I had to fight tooth and nail for every ounce of muscle I added to my frame. Unless you're part of the 0.05% of the world population who is genetically gifted, you don't have to worry about becoming bulked up like a bodybuilder. My client is here. I need to run. I hope this was enough info for you! If not, please read my other posts. Some of them are more detailed. Keep up the good work. It may not hold for much, but I'm happy for you and commend you on your success.

Johnna Originally Answered: How many people who aren't actually obese lose weight permanently?
First, a direct answer to your question. Anyone can get to THEIR OWN PERSONAL ideal weight and stay there. I was very specific. A personal ideal weight is a percentage of body fat that cannot be judged remotely or on paper. And more, even being at ideal weight does not say fit and healthy even excluding diseases, because an ideal weight may be excess fat still. Now, if starting obese, getting to a healthy weight range is easier. A body stores both fat and glycogen (body starch). The glycogen holds a lot of water, and fat holds some. More obese typically includes more body starch, and the water/glycogen is less calories per pound. Also, from the excess eating and wrong foods point of view, it is easier to get to a proper diet and get to a healthy weight with it. But, once at that BMI of 25, a healthy weight, what is left is fat, and that is 3,500 calories per pound, and from a total build, exercise is essential to reach that body shape goal which overrides the scale numbers. There are athletes of great body form in both sexes that the scale has a high weight. Weight alone does not clearly say totally ideal. Will get to the point. Stand tall, pinch at belly height at your sides. Less than an inch is healthy. 1/2 to 3/4 is around ideal. We are most healthy with a little body fat to store fat soluble vitamins and provide sustained energy. Anyone with diet and exercise can get there. Without exercise diet needs to be so careful it is hard to maintain, because that glycogen and water comes back easily. In terms of an "unhealthy" meal such as that trip to iHop with all the fixin's, one meal is not going to make much of a difference. 1000 calories is 1/3 to 1/2 pound and also is only half a day's energy. In terms of 5 pounds, body weight varies in a day by food in your digestive tract (end-to-end) and water hydration. Overnight you lose weight in both metabolism and water in perspiration and respiration. It is not about an exact weight in this either then. Temporary diet plans whether ketogenics of ultra-low carb like Atkin's, or glycemic of the South Beach Diet work for overweight somewhere into a healthy range. You then need a healthy diet maintenance and an exercise level for overall fitness and weight. So as I wandered a bit in information, I hope I was clear enough to state this: Once close to ideal weight, by however path was achieved, but still 5 to 10 pounds over ideal, but in that healthy weight, you can get to the ideal weight and hold it by maintaining a healthy diet, that would allow for occasional treats of that unhealthy meal or dessert with no issue. It has to include an exercise plan that burns off the water/glycogen that forms in that treat. The people that get to this state have resolved they will have a healthy diet and exercise. There are some people with high natural metabolisms that have it easier, but for others it takes always watching the overall picture. Our general lifestyle today is far more sedentary than years ago. We sit at desks, watch TV, go to a market instead of growing food and raising animals to eat, play low energy games with our recreation time, have everything prepared in markets as frozen and a plethora of fast food restaurants. It is so easy to buy fat and sugar filled food. All this makes it hard to get to fitness. Conclusion: A trip or two a month to iHop or McDonald's or the bakery is not going to make a difference. It is your standard eating and dietary patterns and your activity and exercise pattern that will determine your fitness. If you don't put in the effort, be satisfied and happy the way you are at any body shape/weight/fitness level and that's absolutely OK. Just be honest about it. If you don't believe it, your mom and everyone else won't believe it either. Or, put in the effort. It isn't easy to be and stay fit. Just don't play two sides of the fence like a lot of people do. They complain or are unhappy about their weight or fitness, and either do nothing about it, or chase easy ways that don't work. In this long answer, I hope I got my point across. I meandered a bit. Here is an answer that gets to great web sites and my guidance of a healthy diet. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;... The links have healthy eating as what and how to eat, ideal weight calculator from a very good source, nutrition lookup, articles and tips about weight loss, a fitness web site http:www.livestrong.com/ and more. If you learned about food and fitness in what could take a couple of hours, you would see it is quite possible to correct any mistakes you are making and get to a perfect weight. Did you know Diet Coke can make you fat even with zero calories? (phosphoric acid, metabolism affect, potential insulin affect, psychological affect)

try to have a little lean protein with each meal as protein tends to be more satisfying than carbs or fats

Rio Originally Answered: How do you clean a obese cat after a bm up or down for female cat?
you don't want to put feces into the vagina. it would be unhealthy, and possibly lead to thrush infections etc. also, we had the same problem with our cat, and then we realized it wasn't simply obesity stopping her licking herself clean- the obesity had led to arthritis. we have since put her on injections for arthritis and the change is amazing! she cleans herself, runs around as happy as larry, is happy to stick to her diet and is much more affectionate. the arthritis injections are an amazing prevention.
