Does losing weight hurt?

Oh and also I’ve been feeling very low on energy and what can I do to get my energy back but not gain the weight back? I feel great and in shape most of the time. help!

Answer #1

no however when I first started pumping iron my arms felt numb it dosn’t bother me it’s worth mucsles it won’t take long to get use to the numbness in your arms no pain no gain a saying at pro health and fitness

Answer #2

yes I feel like that and I hardly eat anything anymore food just doesn’t sound good to me

Answer #3

nope, but you’ll feel lighter with your body, and yet, you feel weird at start and a bit dizzy, that you’d want to eat more, or has a lotta cravings that may lead you to eat more again.. that’s how I feel, I don’t know with others’..

Answer #4

No, losing weight shouldn’t hurt…it sounds like you have something else wrong, or you are not eating enough. Call a “nurse hotline” or similar to make sure you don’t have some kind of health issue, as throwing up in the middle of the night isn’t normal.

Answer #5

since you’re on your process of losing weight, that’s good (as long as you don’t look like nicole richie yet.. lol!!) what you should do with your diet is, balance the food intake and the vitamins, fats, calories etc., that you eat.. it’s okay to eat anything, but WITH MODERATION… self-control, moderation, willingness and goal will put you on a very hard test, so just focus on the diet, eat enough, and you’ll be curvy, soon!!

exercise is also a must! more liquids and no unhealthy edible stuff.. lol!

Answer #6

you say food just doesnt ever sound good to you.. thats not good at all.. you may not know it yet but you could have anorexia. its a very scarey thing. and a lot of foods im sure hurt your stomach but thats only because you are not used to eating. I was bulimic for 5 years and yes I would get up in the middle of the night like that too.. im here to talk if you have any questions.

Answer #7

if I was prego I’d be getting bigger & hungrier all the time. I don’t feel like eating anything, you retard.

Answer #8

You might be pregnant.

Answer #9

It sounds like you need to eat more than you are doing at the moment. Remember it’s not considered healthy by the medical community to stop eating or eat very little in order to lose weight. Furthermore you’re combining diet with an exercise regime, which means you are burning even more calories than would be the case if just restricting your diet alone. These aren’t being replenished due to a lack of food, which may be causing you to be feeling weak. So it depends on how much you are eating at the moment, if you’re barely eating anything that may be the problem. In my view you should be having say 3 normal meals as usual, the cuts would come from not having any junk food, ensuring the portions are sensible, and that you replace the unhealthy elements in your food such as butter with vegetable oil, and so on and so forth.

Answer #10

yes theres really healthy stuff to eat at the house and I rarely go out to eat anymore, I’m biking up to 5 miles a day and not eating nearly as much as I used to, I don’t have money to go out and by diet vitamins and diet foods I just eat really healthy, and even then dont eat very much.

Answer #11

What do you weigh and how tall are you?

It sounds like you might be anorexic and starting to suffer from poor nutrition.

Please check out the three links below. They are from my Group and provide information concerning anorexia both first from an anorexic’s point of view then from sites with appropriate information plus information on bulimia:

How to LOSE weight?

First, determine from the information below, what your weight should be. Then set yourself goals of a week, 2 weeks, a month, 3 months, 6 months and a year. As you see yourself meeting your goals it becomes easier. Remember, you didn’t gain your weight overnight so don’t expect to lose if overnight. Plus, weight lost slowly is more likely to stay off than weight lost in a hurry.

BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measurement of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both men and women between the ages of 18 and 65 years.

BMI Classification

18.5 or less Underweight
18.5 to 24.99 Normal Weight
25 to 29.99 Overweight
30 to 34.99 Obesity (Class 1)
35 to 39.99 Obesity (Class 2)
40 or greater Morbid Obesity

Check out your BMI at the bmi calculator site below to see where you stand.

bmi calculator:

If you need conversion info, 1 kg = 2.2 pounds and 2.54 cm = 1 inch (12 inches = 1 foot) (1 stone = 14 pounds)

Info if you are trying to LOSE weight:

“How can I Lose 1 pound of body weight per week?”

One pound of body fat is equal to about 3500 calories. So to lose 1 pound of weight per week, you need to eat 500 calories/day LESS than you burn.

But it’s not a good idea to lose weight simply by cutting calories. As well as decreasing calories you should increase your daily physical exercise. This helps to burn calories and build more lean tissue which in turn burns more calories.

“What should a minimum calorie intake be?”

As a guide to minimum calorie intake, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that calorie levels never drop below 1200 calories per day for women or 1800 calories per day for men. Even these calorie levels are quite low.

Another thing that helps to lose weight is to always eat a good breakfast. That helps to jump start your metabolism which helps start burning calories. Also, try to drink 8 eight ounce glasses of water every day. One before every meal (except breakfast) and before all snacks. That helps curb your appetite which helps reduce caloric intake.

Answer #14

I drink lots of water and try and eat a good breakfast but I’m not usually up early in the morning to get it started. how can I keep losing the pounds without it turning into muscle? thats all it’s doing and I really just want to lose some weight but I’m an athletic person so it’s not working
