Donald asks…

Wax worms okay for my leopard geckos diet ?

I had meal worms and ran out so i decided to start feeding him some wax worms. I do also have crickets, but are wax worms good enough for them as a regular diet ?

weight loss cardiff answers:

No wax-worms are not a good regular diet. Wax-worms are incredibly high in fat compared to other feeders, and a staple of waxies would cause obesity, and put the Leopard Gecko at an increased risk of fatty liver disease. The best staple would be Crickets, Dubia Roaches, Pheonix Worms, or Mealworms.

Ruth asks…

Earth Worm reproduction?

Can a worm mate for eggs if he’s single in a small pot?I just found one in my citrus plant and he was the only one there.Im asking because i heard that worms are good for plants fertilizer in general.
The main question is how he appeared there in first time without some other worms mating.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Worm Reproduction…or how they make more worms!

How To

Reproduction dictates survival of a species. Organisms like worms which provide food for many others, must reproduce ample offspring to offset predation. OK, that is a mouthful, right? But it is true. All the creatures who live in the wild must have food. Worms are an easy target for them.

Here comes a short anatomy lesson on worms and the red wiggler, in particular. Most worms are hermaphrodites, meaning that each one is both male and female. Impossible you say! Not so. Read on: While worms possess both male and female sexual organs, red wigglers cannot produce offspring alone. Red wigglers must join for successful mating and reproduction to occur.

Some species of worms can produce offspring alone, these worms are parthenogenic, meaning they can produce offspring without cross fertilization. Eisenia Fetida are hermaphroditic but not parthenogenic. Got it? I knew you would.

When a red wiggler is sexually immature its body segments are uniform throughout its entire length. As it matures, it develops a bulbous gland about one third of the way down its body called the clitellum. It looks like a swollen band around its body. This area produces mucus needed for the cocoon production.

Two worms come together at the clitellum and use their hair-like setae to hold fast to each other. While joined they exchanged seminal fluid. At the same time, grooves on the underside of the worm help transport the seminal fluid to the seminal vesicles for later use. Each worm begins to secrete a mucus ring around itself.

After being joined for up to three hours, the worms separate. The mucus on each worm begins to harden as the worm starts to back out of, or slough off, this ring. During this process the seminal fluid, ovum and aminotic fluid are deposited into the mucus ring. As the ring passes over the worm’s head it seals, forming a lemon shaped, yellow colored cocoon. Over a period of weeks, the cocoon darkens to a beautiful ruby red as the hatchlings mature.

Here is must be noted that calcium is essential in the worms’ diet. Without calcium, worms will not reproduce. In most cases the organic waste you give your worms will have enough calcium in it. But to be sure the worms have an adequate supply, there are three simple ways to provide it:

1) pulverize your eggshells as finely as possible and add them to your bin.

2) grind up a calcium based antiacid tablet and add a teaspoon every week.

3) pick up an agricultural lime ( calcium carbonate) or dolomite ( calcuim-magnesium carbonate) at your local garden center and add a teaspoon weekly to your bin.

Caution: Do NOT use a construction lime such as slaked lime or quick lime as they will both quickly kill the worms.

To Recap:

> it takes two red wigglers to make more worms for your bin.

> during the three hours the two worms are joined: don’t bother them, or you will interrupt their private time, in making more worms for you.

> do ensure the worms have enough calcium, using one of the methods mentioned above.

Next time I will write about the cocoons, hatchlings, juveniles and adult worms and their stages of growth. Until them I hope you enjoy your worm bin and it teaches you more about your worms

weight loss cardiff answers:

Do NOT take diet pills! They are dangerous!!

Last year I was visiting my parents and took diet pills on top on my exercise routine and normal diet. I was 26 at the time, 5’11, 180 lbs. By week three I was sick. I had diarrhea, dry heaves, dizziness, headaches, and a general feeling of being sick. I thought I had caught the flu or something. I had lost 13 lbs in 4 days. One morning I told my mom I didn’t feel good. My vision kept blacking out and I felt (for lack of a better way to say it) stoned. Later that afternoon I was walking from the bathroom to my bedroom (a 5 foot walk) and I passed out. I was rushed to the hospital emergency where they did a bunch of tests on me.

My pulse was up to 120, My blood pressure was 150/40, they had to start me on an IV, the did an EKG on me, took blood and urine samples, and a whole barrage of other tests.

They finally got me stabilized and said that I was dehydrated and malnutritioned. I told him that I took diet pills. When I mentioned diet pill, the doctors face lit up and said that’s why. He said they can cause a whole bunch of health problems, including death. He told me to toss the diet pills or next time I might not be so lucky.

I was kept in the hospital for almost 10 hours, given 3 or 4 IVs, potassium, juices, and monitored (by the EKG, blood pressure, and heart rate machines) every 15 minutes.

Please take my story as a warning. If you seriously want to loose weight there are better ways (I know because I’ve lost weight after this)

The quickest way to lose weight is to cut out red meats, starches, breads, sugars, alcohol, and sodas.

Eat veggies (salads are good), soups, and drink TONS of water. If you get hungry between a meal, drink water to fill up.

In moderation eat white meats, and fruits (fruits contain natural sugars, and that can put on weight)

Practice portion control. Yes, you’ll feel hungry at first, but think of your goal, and soon your stomach will start shrinking and you won’t have that feeling anymore.

Eat 5 times a day. A small breakfast. A mid-morning snack, such as an apple. A small lunch. A mid-afternoon snack, such as carrots. A lite dinner. Do not eat any later than 7pm (6pm is better.)

Go exercise for at least an hour – two a day, incorporating weight training along with your cardio. Cardio helps to melt the fat, while weight training builds muscle. Muscle burns fat, even when you are resting. You get the idea. It also gives tone and definition. Also do a few yoga and pilates exercises to help tone those hard to reach and stubborn areas.

George asks…

What would happen if I took diet pills while exercising and working out?

Trying to get rid of about 10 lbsand all this workin out and dieting hasnt been working for that, just getting me to increase muscle. If I take diet pills like prescription, how long should I take them for?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Nothing more would happen than if you didn’t take diet pills.
If they contained caffeine you might feel awake enough to exercise more. Cheaper to have a cup of tea or coffee.

Sandra asks…

What is the most effective LONG term diet pill that is also safe?

I am looking for a diet pill that does not make me gain huge amounts of weight after I have stopped taking them (which I hear is quite a common case among diet pills). Im am very active and do some kind of physical activity everyday, but I am still not content with my body. Im short, only 5’1″, and its difficult for me to lose fat in certain areas. Please suggest anything you find safe, effective, and can be used long term.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Do not use diet pills.

If you have areas of the body that you are that unhappy with you best option is to make sure you eat healthy and exercise. Do some research and find exercises that target the areas you want to work and set up a route and stick to it.

What happens if you take a diet pill and don’t eat after taking it?

I’ve purchases Cellan diet pills and it says to eat a half hour to an hour after taking it. I didn’t have time to eat. Is this bad for me?

Helen asks…

What is the best diet pill to lose weight?

I am trying to lose weight, I have changed my eating and exercising habits, but still nothing. I am wanting to try a diet pill, but I want something that is healthy for me. I do not know very much about diet pills. Can anyone help me out?
Ok, maybe I shouldn’t take a weight loss pill, but an appetite suppressant. Would that be better?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I would recommend you talk to your doctor first. If you have changed your eating and exercising habits and your weight is not coming off you may want to have your Thyroid Checked.
I would never recommend anyone take a Diet Pill because they all say with diet and exercise and I am sorry to say there is no magic pill to help get the weight off.

I can feel your pain. I have plateaued many times in my journey to lose 436 pounds. And I have bounced up and down. I am now down over 150 pounds in weight and I did it all through diet, seeing a nutritionist, and walking my dog and on a treadmill. It is not easy but I have never once taken a pill to help me get weight off.

So please see your doctor first. Find out if you have an underlying medical condition that is preventing you from getting those pounds off. He or She may be able to get your Thyroid working again, or suggest a nutritionist to help you reach your goals. But stay away from diet pills.

Nancy asks…

How old do you have to be to buy a diet pill?

Just a bottle of diet pills, do you have to be 18 to buy diet pills from a store?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Bad news – there are NO diet pills that reduce anything but your financial resources. None of them work, period. I am a practicing physician and nutritionist and in the past 25 years have NEVER had a patient lose weight on anything they tried from the pharmacy. There are not even any good prescription weight-loss drugs these days. So please don’t waste your money. Go to the library and check out the “South Beach Diet” book or the Atkin’s Diet books and work on the diet. Or consider joining Weight Watchers. The only patients who have lost weight and kept it off selected a diet approach, used it correctly, and stayed with it. Good luck.

Jenny asks…

Is it okay to take diet pills in combination with birth control?

The birth control is Lo Lesterin Fe (not sure on spelling haven’t picked it up at pharmacy yet) and I want to use diet pills. Don’t lecture me on it. What diet pills have people had success with and is it okay to take with birth control?

weight loss cardiff answers:

You should never combine any prescribed or non-prescribed medication without checking with your doctor first.

Herbal supplements do not have to be approved by the FDA there is no research done on the possible side effects of mixing these pills with medication. Most of the information available is anecdotal.

“One key suggestion from a number of doctors is to take the birth control pill up to three hours after you take the diet pill. “

Betty asks…

What is the best stimulant free fat and carb blocker or diet pill for women?

I’m a 30 year old female who can’t take diet pills with stimulants. My diet consists mainly of dairy and pasta, so I need a carb blocker or fat burner. I’ve checked out numerous websites claiming to be impartial but they all turn out to be promoting one brand or another. Any advice, and please, I know that exercise is the best way to lose weight and i am active. So diet pill advice only, please.

weight loss cardiff answers:

I have been through it all and know what’s it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can’t be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I’ve worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can’t eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising…

This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it’s good for the heart.

However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It’s so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I’ve found a great addition to help any one out, it’s a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don’t get all crazy on me and say diet pills don’t work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn’t meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It’s an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it’s the best pill I’ve tried and I’ve tried cupboards full. Now this doesn’t mean you have to follow my foot steps but I’ve successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

Sandra asks…

What are the best diet pills that actually work for weight loss?

I would also like to know about diet pills that are healthy, I mean kind to the body but actually work. Has anyone got any tried and tested diet pills that they can recommend? Thks!

weight loss cardiff answers:

I did the Atkins diet for 2 weeks and lost a stone, but the best – and safest way to loose weight is to drink loads of water and excersise (go for a walk or do extra house work, I did and it works!) I found it hard to keep to at first, but now i feel great and my skin looks really fresh. In six months I’ve gone from a size 14 to a size 10. Give it a try and in six months you’ll be looking and feeling great!
