Lose weight with bad hip....

Hi, I'm 21 years old and a little overweight.

I want to be able to lose weight and I know that the best and safest way to do this is eat little and often, eat heathily and the bad stuff in moderation along with regular exercise.

My problem is, I have a problem with my right hip (which is being investigated by the hospital). I am unable to put any weight on it or much movement as it causes me a LOT of pain. For me to get around I use 2 elbow crutches which makes life somewhat harder.

Does anyone have any advice? I did have a calorie counter thing and I was eating about 2000 calories (which is probably too much seeing as I can't exercise).

Any help and advice would be grately appreciated

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
As you are unable to do regular exercise, I would suggest you to start modified atkin diet. Avoid snacks and energy drinks. Herbal remedies like green tea extract and lemon juice are also helpful.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
