How much should i eat if i'm inactive?
1300 cal per day is a good start. Eat at least 30 gr of protein at breakfast.Tthen less and less protein as day goes on.

I have read you should eat at least 90 gr of protein every day so you wont burn off muscle. If you combine ths with 50 gr of carbs and 20 gr of fat,you will loose. Hard to do tho

Weight Gain with Prescription Meds
Has anyone mentioned radio frequency ablation to you?

I have friends with the same problem. They HAVE to do the exercises very day or else they need surgery

You have to do core exercises to build up muscles to support the back. Bicycling and treadmill doesnt do that.

I meet a lot of women with those problems in water aerobics class.

Weight Gain with Prescription Meds
"A previous doctor of mine had me switch too, saying Gabapentin is old-school and Lyrica is much better. I tried it for 2 months and found Gabapentin went farther to control my nerve pain so I switched back to Gabapentin. As I understand it, increased appetite, weight gain and drowsiness are side effects of Lyrica, too so don't switch for those reasons. I'm a proponent of Gabapentin myself. It cost less and works as well or better than anything else I've tried."

This is from a message board on lyrica. You have to do your own research and be your own advocate. Don't depend upon drs.

lyrica is known for weightgain. Maybe one of the others like gabepenton is better.Unfortunately drs just give you the meds they like and dont look in to side effects. YOU HAVE to do it.
