    I believe lifting weights is key to weight loss. Lean muscle burns more calories when resting and weighs less (in size) pound for pound than fat. Correct?

      Dr. Creagan and Ms. Menzel both agree with your comment Andrea. In addition they said starting at age 30, muscle and bone strength begin to decrease. Muscle “bulk” is nearly impossible for women to build without many hours of lifting each day.

    Isometrics is probably much better for you.

    Is there any food or source of nutrition that might work for galbladder tumor to save that organ from cancer? Diagnosed to have tumor in that organ benign, I don’t want to get that one to malignant?

      Peg Mezel says, “Unfortunately, there is no one food for cancer prevention, but rather, eating a diet high in fiber (whole grains brown rice, whole wheat pasta, beans /legumes), fruits, vegetables), lean meats/protein sources and limited added fats is the best cancer prevention. In addition to regular exercise. Best wishes.”
