me and my husband are trying to concieve and are having promblems but I read that it is hard to concieve when you have sex on a daily bases PLEASE help I want to have a child so bad it hurts does anyone have any suggestions on how, what and anything that would me out
Answer: If you've been TTC for 3 months or more without success, and you've been having sex at least once a day during your fertile times, cut down. Seems backwards, I know, but its common advice from experts, as sometimes the problem is the sperm doesn't have enough time to develop. Only have sex every 2 days, even during peak fertile times for you. And that includes no solo action for your partner during your fertile time!
If you've been trying for less than 3 months, you may as well have sex daily (or more if you like), as most men will still be making plenty of healthy active sperm even that often. (IIRC, quantity of sperm in later ejaculates in the same day will decrease, but there will still be some, and after all, in the end you only need one!)
1. Track your cycle length, and calculate your peak fertile times. Your ovulation is due approximately 14 days before your period. Depending on how variable your cycles are, have sex starting 5 days before this date, to 2 days after this date (to allow for a bit of error). There are plenty of books, websites, and charting tools available to help you track your cycles.
2. Learn to spot the changes in your cervical mucous. Around your peak fertile time, it will have a consistency like raw egg-white. You could also track changes in the feel of your cervix - often high, soft and open during peak fertile times, IIRC. That takes a bit of practice to recognise, though!
3. Cut out any activities which reduce fertility. So, for both you and your partner, no alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs. For your husband, no tight underwear, saunas, hot baths, or long hot showers (excessive heat may affect the motility of sperm).
4. Increase your basic level of health. Check your BMI (body mass index). If you're underweight, gain a little weight, if you're overweight, lose a little weight. Make sure you're eating a healthy diet, and consider starting to take a pregnancy multivitamin, or folate tablets.
Hope something in the above helps!
I am 145 LBS. I am 13. 5' 5" and I need to lose about 15 lbs. Or my man boobs. I have man boobs. Like not that bad. They aren't noticeable until I take my shirt off. But I still want to lose them. Please help me.
How do I lose them?
How many miles do I run/walk a day?
How much lifting do I do?
What do I eat?
Answer: Weight loss is a combination of good nutrition, calorie reduction, and exercising.
Reducing your caloric intake by 3500 calories = 1 pound weight loss
Energy balance is important for maintaining a healthy weight. The amount of energy or calories you get from food and drinks (energy IN) is balanced with the energy your body uses for things like breathing, digesting, and being physically active (energy OUT):
•The same amount of energy IN and energy OUT over time = weight stays the same (energy balance)
•More energy IN than OUT over time = weight gain
•More energy OUT than IN over time = weight loss
To maintain a healthy weight, your energy IN and OUT don’t have to balance exactly every day. It’s the balance over time that helps you maintain a healthy weight.
You can reach and maintain a healthy weight if you:
•Follow a healthy diet, and if you are overweight or obese, reduce your daily intake by 500 calories for weight loss
•Are physically active
•Limit the time you spend being physically inactive
One pound equals 3,500 calories. Break that down by dividing it by 7 days (there are seven days in a week) and we get 500 calories which means that we must cut 500 calories per day from our diet in order to lose just ONE pound per week.
• A two-pound per week of fast weight loss means that we must cut 1,000 calories per day from our diet.
Formula for Success:
1. Small Frequent Meals
Don't skip meals or go more than four hours without eating this set you up for later temptation. When meals are more than six hours apart, plan strategic snacks.
2. Eat Moderate Portions
Eat a little less of everything!
3. Beware of Concentrated Sugars
Excess sugar eaten alone causes more insulin secretion. Insulin promotes fat storage and can result in a rebound drop in blood sugar levels. Low blood sugar, in return, stimulates the appetite, especially cravings for more sugar.
4. Eat Foods High in Fiber
Fiber fills you up and helps stabilize blood sugar levels. There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. We need both of them in our diet!
5. Lower Your Fat Intake
Limit foods that are high in fat.
6 . Consume Caffeine in Moderation, If at All
Caffeine, like alcohol, may be contained in beverages considered to be food but the effects of this chemical are definitely drug-like.
7. Exercise at least 3 times a week. Walk, walk, walk, swim, or Run!!! Drink Plenty of water.
Use the charts below to determine your appropriate weight and caloric intake.
The U S Department of Health and Human Services has a great fitness article.
My dietitian suggested for my weight, height and age (230 lbs, 5 feet 9 inches, 18 years old) that I only consume 1500 calories a day and keep track of the foods I eat, which I can do without a problem...but she forgot to mention the amount of calories I should burn a day? I want to exercise every single day for about 2 hours...I read around that burning 500-600 calories a day is what actually helps you lose weight, and I want to burn about 2 pounds off a week. How many calories should I burn a day and how many calories does jogging for 1 hour and a half with some walking breaks in it?
Answer: It is common knowledge that the fewer calories a person consumes, the more weight they will lose, but this is partly a myth as low calorie consumption can decrease the metabolic rate and set the body mechanism in starvation mode. The weight loss effect is very short lived and the dieter will often regress to an even more gluttonous lifestyle than before.
The correct way to reduce weight is not to deprive the body of food, but to exchange those products that are causing the excess weight with healthier products that are less fattening.
More calories are burned in fat from active persons than those who lead a sedentary lifestyle, which will not only make you obese, but will promote an unhealthy body prone to illnesses. Along with a sensible diet, it only takes a few daily exercises to fulfill the body's need for a healthy circulation and therefore an adequate nutritional distribution.
As much as people are different in gender, age and weight, they will possess differing metabolic rates; for instance the speed of the dual biological process of turning organic matter into energy. Therefore each group of people has different calorific needs related to the amount of energy they expend.
Men generally need around 2000 to 2500 calories a day and women need around 1500 to 2500 calories a day, but again variations depend on age, weight, height, and lifestyle activity.
There isn't any need to be ignorant of your daily calorific needs as the internet is full of sites with calorie charts giving the calorific values of several types of food. In a short while you can compile a menu of healthy foods with low calories and eventually become an expert in counting calories.
To remain in optimum health you will initially have to calculate your calories to total over 1000 in the short term, increasing to around or just over 1500 per day until you reach a comfort level for your lifestyle. Nevertheless, you will need to have enough calories to stay healthy.
As a rule of thumb, this would be the calorie needs of the groups:
· 1800 to 1900 daily. Women aged 31 - 50 who do little exercise
· 2000 daily. Women aged 20 - 30 who do little exercise
· 2200 - 2300 daily. Men aged 31 - 50 who do little exercise
· 2400 daily. Men aged 20 - 30 who do little exercise
Children's calorie needs:
· 1000 daily. Children aged 2 - 3
· 1100 - 1500 daily. Children aged 4 - 5
· 1800 - 3000 daily. Young boys aged 9 - 18
· 1800 to 2200 daily. Young girls aged 9 - 18
Seniors calorie needs:
· 1600 - 1700 daily. Women aged over 50 with little exercise.
· 2000 - 2200 daily. Men aged over 50 with little exercise.
Athletic or active individuals.
· 2500 - 3000 Physically active men
· 2000 - 2500 Physically active women
· 2300 - 2800 Men aged over 50 physically active.
· 1800 - 2300 Women over 50 physically active.
If you remember that your total calorie intake should be from a wholesome diet, you are on your way to a healthier lifestyle and a slimmer body. Eat a balanced diet of protein, carbohydrates and fat; the proportions should be as follows:
· Protein 40% from fresh lean chicken, beef, turkey, fish, eggs etc.
· Carbohydrates 40% from yams, oat bran, vegetables, fruit.
· Fats 20% from omega 3 rich foods like salmon, flax-seed, avocado, and supplements of fish oil capsules.
Once you have mastered the healthy alternative menus and have control of your consumption by watching calories, you will have changed your lifestyle and it will show. There are many weight loss websites on the internet that will let you know how many calories you should eat a day. Just find a good one and follow the routine.
