I've been weight lifting for about a month and I've progressively gotten more and more tired and it's been getting harder. My doc says I'm not getting enough calories and I had been doing 1500 and struggled to get that in. He says I should be doing 2

Hello!

 

I have the issue where I get tired of foods quickly, so I wanted some ideas on what I could eat for Stage 1 and 2 (liquid and squishy foods).  I'm okay wish drinking straight water so I don't need anything like Crystal Light to

Hello!

My name is Melissa and it looks like the options my insurance will cover for WLS are not good ones for me and at this point, it's the specific method I want, or nothing at all.

I play a full women's contact sport and exercise 3-6

It is very likely I'm overthinking this, but my insurance says I have to participate in "a physician supervised nutrition and exercise program, over a consecutive 12 month period, including evaluation and management with a licensed dietician, and incre

Hello!

 

My insurance just switched to paying for gastric bypass.  I qualify, from what I think, I have a BMI of 37-40 and high blood pressure controlled variably with medication (it's okay sometimes and out of whack others) over the pa
