If you have general weight loss questions, you can ask them here. We offer general weight loss advice and tips for weight loss from a registered nurse.
The thing about losing weight is that it doesn't always go smoothly. So, chances are... somewhere along the way... you're going to have some questions.
Maybe you're wondering what's the best way to lose weight, given a particular situation. Or, you've heard something about how to lose weight and you want to know if it's true. Or you're not sure how to overcome a challenge or barrier that's caused you to plateau.
The possible weight loss questions you could come up with are just about endless, right? So I thought it might be helpful to create this "Ask a Nurse" section of the site, where you can find answers in the form of weight loss advice and general tips for weight loss that might help you with whatever is perplexing you.
Please keep in mind that we cannot offer specific medical or professional advice here. The general tips and advice you do find here, whether in answer to your question or someone else's, should be considered nothing more than general information that is based on widely-accepted weight loss knowledge. We don't know you or your medical history. If you need truly personalized advice, then talk with your own doctor, OK? (Or use our Ask a Doctor service)
I'm a registered nurse... have been for more than 3 decades! So I know a lot about the human body and how to make healthy lifestyle choices. Healthy living is also my passion and so I continue to learn and read about it. I love to share that knowledge, so that's what you'll find here. But I can't speak to your individual health condition in depth or offer you medical advice, so please don't ask me to.
And if anyone else answers questions here... which they're welcome to do... don't take that as medical advice just for you, either.
What you can find here are suggestions on what might work for you, tips on what's worked for other people and so forth. Take it all with a bit of a grain of salt and if you're not sure if the suggestions will work for you, then by all means, talk with your doctor, OK? We're sharing experience here, but nothing works for everyone!
Do you have a question about losing weight, how to make healthy food choices or getting fitter? If so, ask away... and I'll put on my best nursing cap to answer you accurately!
NOTE: Please use appropriate capitalization, punctuation and grammar in your question and the details, if you want your question to be published and answered!
Hopefully, you've gotten some answers to your weight loss questions on this page. Or at least found some worthy weight loss advice or easy tips on weight loss. We aim to please!
