Hello, I eat 1 apple, 1 orange, 1 tomato , 1 carrot, 1 egg and 1 stalk celery everyday. Do I have excessive vitamin A in my diet?

Hello, I eat 1 apple, 1 orange, 1 tomato , 1 carrot, 1 egg and 1 stalk celery everyday. Do I have excessive vitamin A in my diet?

Definitely NO: The only one of those foods that has ANY Vitamin A is eggs and 1 egg has only 8% the recommended daily intake of Vitamin A. Vitamin A is only found in foods of animal origin. Fruits and vegetables contain Beta Carotene, which our bodies can convert to Vit A as needed, but which NEVER cause excess Vitamin A no matter how much of them you eat. ...Read more

Is this a healthy dinner? 1 activia yogurt, serving of almonds, 1 sweet potatoe, 1 boiled egg, and some baby brussel sprouts? Im 18 5'8 and 190 lbs

Is this a healthy dinner? 1 activia yogurt, serving of almonds, 1 sweet potatoe, 1 boiled egg, and some baby brussel sprouts? Im 18 5'8 and 190 lbs

OK- healthier if...: This has potential but i advise choosing organic yogurt;conventional brands like activia are from cows fed gmo corn & given antibiotics & rbgh(bovine growth hormone)-avoid! the same applies to eggs. Please eat organic eggs or they're from chickens fed gmo's & antibiotics! almonds, sweet potato & brussel sprouts are all healthy- while organic is best, these are acceptable if grown conventionally. ...Read more

Sounds good: Sounds good and healthy. Only thing missing is a serving or two of fruit or vegetable. You might add some citrus, tomato slices, banana but it sounds good as is if you get a lot of vegetables and fruits later in the day. Best wishes! ...Read more

How to lose 20kg weight in 1 month with vegetarian diet only?

How to lose 20kg weight in 1 month with vegetarian diet only?

Don't do it.: 20kg (44 pounds) of weight is way too much to lose in one month. Healthy weight loss is generally achieved at a rate of one to two pounds weekly, which would equal up to eight pounds monthly (less than 4kg monthly). Be patient and be successful and healthy. ...Read more

210pounds 5^2 21yrs old. Considering the 400(or600) calories a day diet. Nutritional diet plan?

Not enough calories: If you drop caloric intake too drastically - you will actually eat up a lot of muscle and drop your metabolic rate. This is NOT a healthy way to lose weight. Consider working with a nutritionist so that you can do this in a healthy way. Take care. ...Read more

Is that  ahealthy diet plan 
breakfast : 1 egg with spreadable butter with 1 toast 
launch : chicken with salad 
dinner : fruit and handfull of nut 
?

Healthy diet: Generally this plan seems reasonable, it's all about balance. When looking at meal plans to maintain an optimum weight and reducing your future cardiac risk factors the mediterranean diet has gained favor among medical professionals. Ensure adequate intake of leafy green vegetables, replace your polyunsaturated fats with naturally occurring fats like nuts and extra virgin olive oil etc. ...Read more

Eating only 2 wholemeal bread, 1 small pack of jacob's, 3 ordinary biscuit & 4 digestive biscuit for whole day. is it healthy? my friend is on diet.

Eating only 2 wholemeal bread, 1 small pack of jacob's, 3 ordinary biscuit & 4 digestive biscuit for whole day. is it healthy? my friend is on diet.

NOT healthy at all!: I have no idea what jacob's is but everything else your eating is bread/ starches. The healthiest diet (for both weight loss and good health) is to eat mostly vegetables & fruits with healthy protein and to minimize starch. You don't seem to be eating any veggies/fruit & eating mostly starch, the opposite of a healthy diet! My favorite diet is Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritarian- see http://bit.ly/1dHW9hT ...Read more

How do 1 gain weight within 1 month?

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. If no medical cause is found, then one can add weight by eating more calories of nutritious foods, while also doing weight-training to increase muscle. Proteins: egg white, chicken breast, salmon,... Better fats: olive oil, peanuts, almonds, tofu,... ...Read more

OK but...: This is ok but if you really want to lose weight you might avoid the bread as less carbs will help; some feel gluten causes obesity so rice or quinoa might be better. I strongly advise organic chicken - see http://bit.Ly/19xax7e for the reasons. My favorite diet for weight loss and overall health is dr. Fuhrman's nutritarian diet- see http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht don't forget to exercise. Good luck! ...Read more

My blood sugar is @ 244 when i only had 1 med banana 2 c unsweetened green tea 2 c black coffee 1 med avocado 1 medium apple 12 corn tortilla chips?

Diabetes?: Sugar levels are established by complex interplay between many variables. Hard to predict bg level at a random time after eating. If you measure bg levels after eating it is best to check at 2 hours after your meal. At that time bg level should be less than 140. Since I do not see diabetes on the conditions list...A fasting blood sugar >126 on two separate occasions deines diabetes. ...Read more

I was on protein diet I was lose every week 3kg my diet plan included 5 meals a lot of vegetables , fish ,chicken,and beef 45min workout is it healthy?

Slow it down: Losing 3 kg (6.6 pounds) a week is a pretty rapid weight loss. If you have a lot (30+ kg) to lose, this rate may be ok. The frequent eating is good as is "lot of vegetables." The protein is ok, but ideally you would have a little fiber/carbohydrate, too. Calories >900/day. If a variety of exercises in workout, 45 min/day is ok. Slow down weight loss to maximize chance of permanent loss. ...Read more
