Male, mid 40's just recently went for an ultrasound and discovered that I have a fatty liver (and mildly enlarged spleen). I went to see my doctor due to some irregular pain I was feeling in my lower left abdomen. All other areas evaluated were fine (pancreas, kidneys, etc). RBC and platelets are slightly elevated but within normal ranges. Doctor recommended that I avoid alcohol (didn't say how long - and no, I'm not an alcoholic) and eat a balanced diet. It's been ~two weeks since I've received this diagnosis and have since avoided alcohol (I feel great and I've lost five pounds already), have re-enlisted in cardio/weight training, but have largely gone without a nutrition plan for the diet and supplement portion, and could use some advice. I am staying away from fried foods and consciously eating more greens, vegetables and fish (just read that I should stay away from eating raw/uncooked shellfish, so that's now off the list).
Any recommendations on nutrition and supplements? Doctor's are great, but this is where they fall short. Thanks for any help.View Thread

I am 60 female workout and consume about 1200 calories and am having trouble loosing weight. I do 40 min elliptical 5 or more days a week, on a scale of 1-10 I am a 6-7 on healthy eating. I am feeling frustrated and have no desire for stimulants or other similar weight loss techniques
I have recently started working with a trainer after not exercising for over a year. I find myself getting dizzy and nauseated during the exercises. It happened in beginning yoga, too. Is it what I am eating? not eating? Usually I have a bowl of oatmeal with blueberries and a cup of coffee an hour or so before exercising in the am. The yoga was in the evening, and I had eaten an hour before.View Thread

My entire life I have always struggled with putting on weight despite seemingly eating plenty and working out regularly (4-5 times per week). Are there any foods or workout styles in particular that I should focus on in an effort to gain weight? I am currently 5'11" and weigh about 158 pounds. I would like to get up to around 175 pounds, but want it to be good weight, not fat.View Thread
I just had an 8.7 A1C. Dr putting me on Metformin. I am 62, weigh 218 lbs and only 5' 2". I've shrunk a couple of inches I guess. Anyway, low sugar and low carb duet recommended but no testing. First, I find that curious. 2nd no mention of exercises. Just a phone call from nurse telling me test results and Metformin ordered. So, I know about counting carbs, no problem with that but sugar is my Achilles heel. So, I also know that exercise is important. I have a ruptured disc, lumbar area. Also a plate and screws in my ankle, have had both knees operated on many years ago, and recently had breast cancer and most recently my gall bladder removed. I also suffer from fibromyalgia and have for more than 20 years. No heart problems and lungs are clear. Yippee!!!! Now, all of that being said, how many carbs? Where do I start with an exercise program? If you an help me I would sincerely appreciate it. I feel set afloat at sea without any oars. Can you please tell me where to start.
