Food I take does not absorb nutrition due to which proper stool is not formed and I feel numbness in my sense.what should I do?
I am a 47 year old woman and physically very active. However, I have recently developed eye pockets and want to know whether they can be removed?
Weight gain is a complex situation. As you would have witnessed, despite being on a diet, reduced food intake, intense workout and exercise, herbal/nutritional supplements, losing weight may be difficult. That's because body weight is regulated by a mechanism called metabolism which in turn is controlled by hormones.
Metabolism in short means breaking down of complex foods into simple components. So food, as we eat, is broken into carbs, proteins and fats. Extra carbs are turned into fats for future use. So if too much carbs are taken, by default you are strong too much fat. But if you have corrected your diet then ideally you shud be losing weight. When that doesn't happen, it indicates that there must be an underlying problem with metabolism.
Here's what you/anybody trying to lose weight must do.
- Check for thyroid levels.
- Check sugar levels.
- If you are having menstrual problems, chances of hormonal imbalance are higher which could cause weight gain. Consult a doctor. Who will advise an ultrasonography?
- Continue the diet
- Continue physical activity.
- Do not try to lose more than 2 kgs a month - you will bounce back higher.
- Please note thyroid and sugar tests may be negative initially - they take a long time even 2-3 yrs to finally appear in reports, despite patients having symptoms of the condition.
Last but not least, in fact very imp, be happy since stress is the only initial trigger to cause disturbances in body's functions.
