Go for high intensity cardio exercise which burns more total calories and more fat as well.

You should cardio at least 3-4 times per week, for at least 30 mins per session, to burn off fat.

Question by The Phantom: What kind of education is needed to be a foreign missionary doctor?
I always have been interested in the medical field and I am planning to be a missionary. I was wondering what kind of education should I need if I were to help people out in public. In another way, what kind of education would you need to be a clinical doctor like when you get a checkup or when your sick with the flu.

Best answer:

Answer by Nurse For 20 Years
You would need to go through medical school like any other doctor, which takes anywhere from 12-16 years depending on your specialty.
After you have your license to practice medicine, your best bet would be to check into working with an organization such as the Peace Corps or Doctors Without Borders.
Best of luck to you.

Question by : How much exercise is needed for the average Border Collie?
I have two border collies and their exercise needs are very different! They both came from the same litter (I raised both as puppies) but one is a boy and the other is a girl. So far they are both 3 years old. The boy needs only around 30 minutes of exercise a day to be happy and calm while the girl can run for days on end before she gets tired! What’s the normal amount of exercise needed for the average border collie?

Best answer:

Answer by UHave2BeKiddingMe
For the normal/average Border Collie that I am used to being around its 23 out of 24 hours a day.

Every BC I know is a herding/agility/obedience dog and even with all that work the dogs still could go for more. My herding instructors BC works 8+ hours a day and she never tires out.

Your male is definitely not the norm.

Question by nikki r: What health problems are needed in order to qualify for gastric bypass surgery?
What types of health problems are needed to qualify to have gastric bypass surgery? Do you only qualify if you have severe health problems caused by this or could you qualify if you have smaller health problems like knee arthritis & breathing problems? Most of my family is obese and have heart disease, sleep apnea. Would they take that into consideration? My sister had gastric bypass surgery with a starting weight at 208 and is down to 128. I don’t think she had any medical problems due to her obesity.

Best answer:

Answer by koogy
Usually you have to have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 40 or more to qualify for gastric bypass. If you have a BMI of over 35, sometimes you can qualify if you have significant co-morbidities such as diabetes or sleep apnea. First and foremost, “they” look at how morbid obesity is affecting you, however, your family history may be taken into account, if close relatives are morbidly obese and have health problems relating to obesity.
