    I am looking for guys that will help me lose weight and build muscles. I have a need that is different then others, because I had cancer. I am now over that, but have dieabtes and UC.

    I am haveing a very hard time finding what to eat and working out. The meds are killing me, buy making me gain weight. I am on 9steriods a day, and other meds now up to 25 bills a day. I have been told that I can get off the meds, if I lose the weight and build muscles (my back).

    If anyone is able to help me, please im me or email me.. You never know, I may be able to help you someday with something.

    Type 2 diabetic here -- it's tough to lose weight and build lean muscle being a diabetic and at my age. Have you had your T-levels checked lately? I am on a supervised T-injection program to help me boost my T level so I can lose fat more quickly and add lean muscle more easily.

    I'm sorry I am so ignorant, but what is UC?

    Are the meds just for diabetes (that seems like a lot, if so you might elaborate)?
    Or are they follow-up cancer treatment (probably still worth elaborating)?

    Obviously any advice you get here shoudl be prefaced by a "check with your doctor first", just to be safe. My guess is that what you need to do isn't really different than anyone else who wants to lose weight and build muscle, at least not for the first 9-10 months. Bascially you need to work out and count calories while balancing carb/fat/complete protein intake - modulo diabetes concerns.

    The only factor that's different for you, that I'd guess at offhand, is going to be amount (due to energy concerns, etc.) not kind.

    That said, what are you actually on and why? And what have your docs said? If they told you losing weight would get you off the meds I'd imagine they gave you some basic guidance on how to do it.

    For gain weight, the best way to change your eating habits. Eat fruits and vegetables more and eat more protein. Nuts are a very convenient and a healthy snack. Eat very healthy breakfast regularly and do exercise. I think fast weight gain capsules are also useful.

I will update you with all the details, so you guys may truly know what I am dealing with and maybe know something that will help.

    When it comes to how to losing weight and getting tight abdominals many people are not bothered about seeking a way to lose belly fat. Most will do anything to remove unsightly fat, from surgery to slimming pills.and its very harmful to their health so i prefered workout to do the thing.and i also suggest you to be stay away from this.
