Q- Dear Dr. Levin,
I’m 43 years old and want to lose about 35 lbs. I have been on several diets in the last 6 years.  Some of the weight comes off each time, but comes right back when I stop dieting.  The problem is, 6 years ago I had 20 lbs to lose.  Now it’s 35.  I’m actually moving in the wrong direction.  What can you suggest?

Q- Dear Dr Levin,
I occasionally experience PVC's (skipped or extra beats) due to excess gas and bloating. I have been recently diagnosed with IBS after a colonoscopy came back negative. What can I do to relieve the excess bloating and gas and stop these annoying PVC's?? I have had the condition off and on now for almost 20 yrs.

My fiber intake is minimal because I am afraid that I will bloat up immediately and experience the PVC's all over again.  Thanks!
