Another risk of gastric bypass is dumping syndrome, in which food dumps from the stomach into the intestines too quickly, before it's been properly digested. About 85% of people who get a gastric bypass have some dumping. Symptoms include nausea, bloating, pain, sweating, weakness, and diarrhea. Dumping is often triggered by eating sugary or high-carbohydrate foods, and adjusting your diet can often help.

People use a ketogenic diet most often to lose weight, but it can help manage certain medical conditions, like epilepsy, too. It also may help people with heart disease, certain brain diseases, and even acne, but there needs to be more research in those areas. Talk with your doctor first to find out if it’s safe for you to try a ketogenic diet, especially if you have type 1 diabetes.

About a year ago, i had an paragliding-accident that was nearly fatal. I was in hospital for half a year and had to lie in bed all the time because my injuries were really, really bad. I didn't know what to do all day. I was so bored that I started to cheer myself up with some chocolate and other sweets. Before I had my accident, sports was my only hobby. After school, at weekends, whenever I could, I went cycling or did anything sporty. And of course, I ate healthy. No added sugar, no salt, not even white bread (not only because of the added sugar). I was soooo happy with my body. And then this happened. At first I lost about 15 kilos of muscles and then i started to gain weight again. But not muscles... That was belly fat. I sweared to myself to get rid of that fat again and tried everything as soon as i got out of the hospital. After some weeks I could walk normally again (more or less) and then I started cycling. Nothin worked... My muscles came back but the fat stayed. So I tried something else. I did not expect it to work but it really did. And thank god I finally managed to get my sixpack back. Well, it doesn't work as fast as it is displayed on the site, but it really works. Just try it. I just want to share this wonderful moment with you and give you the chance of losing you belly fat too. Here is the two product i used and I hope it will change your life as it did mine. https://bit.ly/2jfF3RK

Russel Wilder first used the ketogenic diet to treat epilepsy in 1921. He also coined the term "ketogenic diet." For almost a decade, the ketogenic diet enjoyed a place in the medical world as a therapeutic diet for pediatric epilepsy and was widely used until its popularity ceased with the introduction of antiepileptic agents. The resurgence of the ketogenic diet as a rapid weight loss formula is a relatively new concept the has shown to be quite effective, at least in the short run.


Noom has been scientifically studied (although minimally) and shown to help people lose weight and keep it off. In one study among almost 36,000 people who were Noom users, almost 80 percent reported weight loss while using the app for a median of 267 days. Among the group, certain behaviors promoted better results: Tracking dinner was an especially effective strategy, while tracking overall calories, activity and weight weren’t far behind.
Phentermine as a single agent (Adipex-P) is also used for weight loss. It's one of four weight-loss drugs approved for short-term use (less than 12 weeks). This group of drugs isn't widely prescribed because of the limited duration of use, side effects and potential for abuse. The exception is phentermine. It's commonly prescribed and the actual rate of abuse appears to be low.

Hi Mel, Assuming that your ranch dressing doesn’t have sugar added, you don’t need to worry too much about limiting it, but within reason. This is my homemade ranch dressing recipe, which has 0.9g net carbs per 2-tbsp serving. It would be hard to find a store bought one with much less than that, even though some round anything less than 1g down to 0g, which isn’t truly accurate. Also, keep in mind that if weight loss is your goal, some people find that too much dairy can cause a stall. Finally, make sure you aren’t using all your “available” carbs on ranch dressing – have it with some low carb veggies!
The short answer: They probably won't help cleanse your body or burn fat. With all of those enthusiastic testimonials, it might be tempting to buy in, but manufacturers aren’t required to prove that their tea blends actually work. And indeed, there’s no convincing scientific evidence that these tea cleanses do any of the stuff that they say. They might contain ingredients that some findings have linked to weight loss, but those studies are often tightly controlled and use very high doses of an ingredient or compound—much more than what you’d get from a tea.
I’m 5ft 2in and am 102lbs. I use these apps to monitor my weight. my stomach doesn’t work properly so I can easily and quickly drop below 100lbs. I try to stay above 105. These apps allow me and my doctor to see trends. I like that I weigh myself and log it then I can forget about my weight for the rest of the day. Just recently I was 110 and slacked off from daily weigh in. I noticed I dropped 4 pounds in a week (a lot on a small frame). I could just remember but it’s nice to be able to forget about my weight.
Glucomannan: The name of this popular diet supplement may not sound familiar but you've probably seen products that contain the fiber supplement. Lipozene for weight loss is the most popular product that contains glucomannan. Unfortunately, the studies have been inconclusive and have not been able to confirm that the fiber substance can help you lose weight.

Phentermine can also be hard for some women to quit. The pounds pile right back on once you wean off, says Dr. Jampolis, unless you use the pill in combination with exercise and a healthy eating plan. And for those drawn in by the promise of effortlessly slipping into a size zero, the buzzy thrill of being on an upper can sometimes feel even harder to give up. “Part of phentermine's popularity is that it’s a stimulant, and some people like that feeling,” Dr. Ryan says. It's part of a class of drugs that has been shown to have potential for addiction.


Ginseng is a type of root and is one of the most popular herbal medicines in the world. It is considered an adaptogen, which means it helps the body withstand mental and physical stress. Contemporary science also suggests that ginseng has various bioactivities. Current research studies have also indicated that ginseng might exert a potential antiobesity effect due to the ginsenosides that are found inside [7].
Dr. Arefa Cassoobhoy: 4 new weight loss drugs were approved recently, and more are sure to come. So, the question is, should you try one? The truth is weight loss drugs CAN help. You may want to try one if you’re obese, or if you’re overweight with a condition like type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. So, how much weight can they help you lose? About 10% of your excess weight. Now that may not seem like a lot, but it’s a realistic goal to start with. And, once you tackle that first 10% you can set a new goal. Just remember, these drugs won’t lose the weight for you. But they will give an added boost to your diet and exercise plan. If you think this is something you want to try, talk to your doctor. For WebMD I’m Dr. Arefa Cassoobhoy.
