Dear, ideally your weight should be around 50 -51 kgs for a good bmi. It is very nice that your are health conscious. Considering your lifestyle (i assume sedentary) ideal calorie intake to achieve a bmi of 21.5 would be around 1800 cal/ day. To achieve your target weight of 51 kgs you need to reduce or burn 500 cal per day which should reduce your weight by around 1/2 kg per week and in around 4 months should reach you to 50-51 kgs. This should be the plan. Now we convert the calories to actual food and exercise. See to it you keep your portions in control have 4 meals a day cut down on carbs and keep the intake level to 1200-1300 cals which knocks of 200 calories and walk around 4 kms every day to reduce another 200 or so. See to it if you can exercise more to reduce 100 more calories. Please do not under eat or crash diet. For a proper plan kindly consult.

Hello, it might remain but will become lighter. If the mark is only on the first layer, it will go. You can get the peeling regularly, the mark might get very light. I cannot guarantee because I have not seen what your mark looks like.

You need to have mind control and meditation and yoga , reading books,listening to music , exercise can all help control your depression or you may need antidepressants. 5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session

Solution is simple. But the first thing is that don't give up hope. Please read my last health tip on" low sperm count" in lybrate. In summery, you can father your own baby using your own sperms, even if there is no sperm inside the semen, as we can take sperms from your balls.

Hello Ms. Lybrate-user, if your periods had been regular earlier to this, you can take the test with morning sample tomorrow. You need not go for a blood test. Though blood test is more sensitive, it is expensive compared to urine test. All the very best. If you want to test today your urine sample should be atleast 4-5 hrs in the bladder. All the best.
