Hi-I just joined a gym, and wonder if there's such thing as an adjustment for short legs on eliptical machines. I'm 4' 10". The last two gyms I belonged to (years ago) had no such adjustable machines.View Thread
I am a 42 year old male that was forced to have a Roux En Y gastric bypass due to an obstruction cause by a duodenal ulcer. Prior to the surgery, I was approx. 173lbs at 5'11. So you, see I was already pretty lean. Since the surgery it has been a major challenge getting back to that weigh and just maintaining muscle/weight at all.
Complications of the surgery: I cannot process carbs/sugars nor consume a lot of food.
Exercise: I am in the gym about 4-5 times a week lifting weights or playing a couple of games of basketball.
Any advise on a diet to put on muscle and to maintain it?
Everyone is jumping on the band wagon to commit to either diet, exercise or both. We have a gym at the apartments and I am definiteyl going back. You know, holidays and stuff I slacked off. Anyway, I also want to get a Yoga dvd for the home when not at the gym. I never did yoga dvds before and I read articles about yoga can really make you lose weights Does anyone do yoga here?. I just want the start up, less strenuous kind of yoga.
Also since I use the elliptical at the gym I want to get a Ipod to listen to music. I searched in Ebay and there were several pages of Ipods, lordy. What is the best kind of Ipod when you exercise that is hands free..?? If anyone can suggest any kind of yoga dvds, or Ipods I would greatly appreciate that.
I am struggling to find a way to fit a regular exercise routine into my schedule. I am a mother and professional. I cherish the time I have at home with my family and find it difficult to step away to exercise. Our house is tiny and doesn't lend itself well to traditional exercise indoors and it's winter outdoors. Help!View Thread

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
