Arrhyuthmia: Your profile in your question says Lithuania but comes up "Albertville, MN" when the question opens. Lithuania seems more likely as we seem to have some language issue. Food isn't the cause- calories don't affect your heart's rhythm. If you're troubled with fast HR, you need a checkup: echo, Holter, thyroid, electrolytes; you should avoid nicotine and caffeine. An accurate DX is necessary.

What is the minimum amount of calories I should consume per day to remain healthy?

Depends.: You need to get your resting metabolism rate checked to see what your rate is. This guideline of everyone eating 2000cal has caused tremendous problems. I check resting rates and most women are between 1100-1500calories and in the rest weight range! so customize this to get the right info.

Will eating sweet food affect the treatment of pinworms?

NO: Pinworm treatment is pretty straight (pardon the pun) forward. Usually 1 dose of medication, followed in a week by another dose. Sweets should do nothing.

What is a 3rd degree heart block?

Bad stuff: Your heart rhythm is normally a carefully coordinated event that has a natural progression electrically to create an effective forceful heart beat.
When you have 3rd degree block, it's completely discordant (ie nothing is working together) . When the different parts of the heart are doing their own thing without communicating properly, it's life threatening and requires a pacemaker

How can I find my maximum heart rate when running?

Take your pulse: At some point during peak exercise stop and take your pulse. Count the heartbeats over 10 seconds (and multiply by 6) or 15 seconds (and multiply by 4). This will give you beats per minute, which are the units to measure heart rate.
