jan answered question Does putting a seed on your ear actually help you lose weight?

Ultimately and scientifically speaking the answer is no. Putting a seed on your ear is no more likely to lead to weight loss than clapping your hands 3 times after you get up. The theory is that it functions as a type of accupressure which stimulates certain pressure points which can help to make your body healthy and bring balance and blah blah blah (can you tell I'm a big believer? lol), but there is no clinical evidence that wearing seed on your ear is going to lead to or help with weight loss.

On the other hand, it may have a beneficial placebo effect for those who do believe in it. It's amazing the effects or beliefs can have on our health and body. Therefore, if you're someone who really believes in this stuff it's possible that it may work for you.

But again, if you're asking this question baesd on scientific fact - no, it won't help you lose weight, save your money.

char answered question what is the best website for medical information?

I think the best site is WebMD. I like how the information is laid out and I find it is written in  way that is easy to understand, You don't have to worry about too much medical jargon. WebMD is also really good because it provides detailed iformation about both prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs and many herbs used in supplements.

Other great sites are the Mayo Clinic and, which are very good for prescription drugs.  If you're looking for information about herbs, you can also check out HerbMD. Links-Herbs sites by the Herb Research Foundation is also good because it has a list of sites that contain herb information.

Essentially, no matter the site you find, just make sure it provides unbiased information.

jan answered question What types of seeds are the healthiest and best for fat loss?

There are plenty of seeds that are great for fat loss and that are also really good for you! Some of them you might find surprising while others likely won't surprise you at all. Here's a list of  four of the best ones that you might want to consider working into your diet :)

Pumpkin seeds - they are high in zinc, help to keep your sugar levels balanced and increase lean muscle mass.

Hemp seeds -  They are super high in protein, they contain omega 3's, they can keep your mood steady and are a great source of iron, zinc and potassium.

Chia seeds - These are high in fiber and omega 3 fats. They can also help to keep you fuller for longer which can lead to less snacking.

Sunflower seeds - They are high in vitamin E and magnesium and are high in antioxidants. They also have protein, fiber and have b-vitamins. These seeds are quite energizing.

char answered question Can you take phentermine if you have an ulcer?

I found your question very interesting and it made me very curious so I did a little research and this is what I found. According to some reaserch, it is possible for phentermine to cause stomach ulcers in some people, particularly women over the age of 40 who take certain medications like Zantac, which is a drug designed to reduce stomach acid for peopel who may already have an ulcer or GERD or to prevent these health conditions.

That said, ulcers are not a common side effect of this drug, so this shouldn't be a problem for the average user. The most common problems when take phentermine are nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, diarrhea, abdominal plain and unpleastant taste in the mouth. Many of this adverse effects can be controlled by taking the medicaiton as it has been prescribed. 

That said, if you have an ulcer, are at risk of getting one or are worried about getting one, bring this up with your doctor if you are considering taking Phentermine and see what he/she has to say about it.

jan answered question Should I wear a bra when I exercise?

I would personally recommend that you do, if only because I find that it’s more comfortable. But, at the same time, I’ve got a fairly big chest and the thought of not wearing a bra is a little unimaginable to me. I need the right kind of support or I’m just flat out uncomfortable.

If you are smaller chested or if you are used to not wearing a bra or are comfortable without one you can try exercising without it. It certainly won’t hurt you because it’s not like its necessary that you wear one for your health or anything.  Some people say that not wearing a bra can cause your breasts to sag faster, but I honestly don’t know how true that is. I’m pretty sure whether or not your breasts sag have to do with your weight, your genetics and how old you are (they all sag in time) and not whether or not you exercise with a bra. It really is just all about comfort.

That said, if you don’t like bouncing all around, I suggest that you give those sisters the support that they crave. Invest in a good sportsbra. Don’t penny pinch and spend the money on one that is well made and fits you well.

char answered question Is a weight loss spa and fitness retreat the same thing?

I do think so becuase I think a weight loss spa focuses on weight loss as a whole which will include fintess but a fitness retreat would primarily focus on fitness. While lose weight is a component of fitness, I think it's more about getting fit and health and is for everyone, regradless if they want to lose weight or not.

Aweight loss spa is meant for people who actually want to lose weight. I think it concentrates on fitness, dieting and other components.

That said, regardless of which one you choose, make sure you know what type of expeirence you want and be sure that the place that interests you will offer it, regadless if it's a weight loss spa or fitness retreat.

Something else to keep in mind, spas and retreats can be quite costly, so don't be shocked if it costs you a small fortune.

jan answered question What is a stomach sucker?

I think it's actually called AspireAssist. It is an FDA approved device for weight loss. it is a small tube that is inserted into the stomach and enables the pserson who has it to drain a portion of their stomach's contents into the toilet so that they don't absorb all the calories that they eat. 

Research has found that it does help people to eliminate calories and that they can lose weight while using it. However, I personally think it sounds like a cheat more than an actualy aid for weight loss. This device sounds like an eating disorder waiting to happen and I also think it gives people the idea that they can eat whatever they want since they're only going to empty their stomach it doesn't teach good eating habits. 

I don't actually know if this is what it would be like, I'm just saying what it sounds like to me.
