Managed high BP. healthy diet. Exercise regularly - HIIT. Prediabetic. Cholesterol borderline.Why heart rate increase rapidly after a short day nap?
Heart rate is: regulated under autonomic control and function. Aging, glucose intolerance, medications, physical condition and hydration can all have effects on the autonomic system resulting in variability to the heart rate response to various activities. Sleeping can additionally affect the autonomic responses. I suspect this is normal physiology for you and represents your body's response to these factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's all relative.: For very low calorie diets, potatoes are relatively high calorie [1 cup of diced potato is 55 calories] compared to 1 serving of turnips or even better deal cooked radishes/daikon. But potatoes are a good deal compared to 1/2 cup of white rice [120 calories], 1 cup of noodles, bread or bagels. So it depends on how low you're trying to go. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Building muscle: Your 'Top 5' supplements with results best supported by clinical trials? (Assuming strict diet macros & a pro-level training regime)
I exercise 50-90 minutes a day, eat clean food, never exceed 1600 calories and I cannot stop gaining weight. (174 cm; 64 kg). It is slow, but constant?
Something amiss: Based on your age, gender, weight and height your basal metabolic rate is around 1400 cal/day: thats what you need just to live without moving at all! Odds are you burn more than 200 cal just moving about, without including your exercise. So either something awry with you metabolism and/or your estimated caloric intake. You should review this with your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No such thing: No food will cause you to lose fat by eating it. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying to you in order to get you to visit an internet site. You can get actual results and make actual friends by spending time doing aerobic fitness in a gym, on a racing team, or on an athletic field. Do yourself a favor and try this approach instead. ...Read more

Ok that i cut out sweet potatoes and bread or was i wrong doing so? I'm tryin to lose weight, usually eat vegs, white meat, beans, 1 egg a day.
Wise to reduce bread: Most experts would agree that avoiding bread helps people to lose weight- it is wise to minimize starches, esp. Those that raise blood sugar as much as bread does. However, sweet potatoes have many useful nutrients and don't raise blood sugar nearly as much as bread or white potatoes, so i see no need to cut them out- see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=foodspice&dbid=64 for more info. ...Read more
See Dr., then eat...: If one is truly underweight (based on height, family background, and body type), a Dr. can evaluate for a hormonal, digestive, or other disorder.

Better fats: olive oil, peanuts, almonds, tofu,... ...Read more
If I'm carefully monitoring my calories to lose weight, and then drink a 16 oz coke zero (0 cal), will it have any effect?
Causes weight gain!: This will have no immediate effect BUT I strongly advise avoiding Coke Zero. It's sweetened with aspartame and acesulfame (at least in the US; you don't say where you live). Ironically, many studies have proven artificial sweeteners are associated with increased obesity and increased risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. I advise avoiding them.

Keep going : The current weight is not provided, but if not at ideal body weight, further weight will likely help. Weight and diet are two pieces of the puzzle. Environmental factors and genetics predisposition are others. Blood pressure of 160/100 is hi for a 29 year old and most would start blood pressure medications at this point. Great job on the < 20 pounds weight loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Bread raises blood sugar level. If you balance it w/meats (protein + fat) will this stunt the release of insulin, thus keeping BS level lower?
A healthy: well-balanced diet is most important. Everything you eat can raise your blood sugar. Eat bread with a lower glycemic index -- less processed.

So use vinegar of leman on your dressing. Salad is recommended daily and even 2 times day is better.. Add some fruits fruits also with each meal. ...Read more
