13 day diet dangerous ?

13 day diet dangerous ?

Yes: I think it is a horrible diet. A breakfast of sugared coffee only is not a good idea. Best to adopt a lifestyle of sensible eating. I would put this diet in the same category as the "hot chick" diet: pepsi and cigarette for each meal. Avoid it. It is not what or how you eat once in a while that affects things, rather how you eat usually. ...Read more

Fasting blood sugar 181.8, hba1c > 7%, taking all vitamins, exercise 6 hrs/week, eat no sugar, eat high fibre, drink water, juice, wt. 67kilo, ht 5'5"?

Fasting blood sugar 181.8, hba1c > 7%, taking all vitamins, exercise 6 hrs/week, eat no sugar, eat high fibre, drink water, juice, wt. 67kilo, ht 5'5"?

Look into Paleo : Your lab numbers suggest you're on the path to diabetes. Even though you don't eat "sugar" any fiber or starch that your body can digest turns into sugar and fruit juice is sugar. Even things like diary that is thought of as healthy has sugar (lactose is a type of sugar). A person with lab numbers like yours has to limit all sugars and heal the damage. The paleo approach can help you do both. ...Read more

13 day diet does it work?

13 day diet does it work?

13 day diet: (Danish Hospital Diet) states you will lose 10 to 20 pounds in 13 days following a very strict caloric cycling food plan. In general, I would not recommend such aggressive weight loss to my patients. A significant amount of loss would be due to fluid loss. This is not a sustainable plan (nor is it designed to be). ...Read more

I lift weights 5/week cardio 3/week. high fat high protein low carb diet,  will soy supplement significantly affect my muscle growth (testosterone)?

Soy supplementation: Soy has high phytoestrogens which mimic estrogen qualities. However there is contradictory evidence whether eating lots of soy will decrease testosterone levels. If you are trying to build mass then maybe use another protein source. ...Read more

Why am I gaining weight on Lasix? My calorie intake is 900 to 1500 per day. My sodium intake is 600 - 900 milligrams per day.

Why am I gaining weight on Lasix? My calorie intake is 900 to 1500 per day. My sodium intake is 600  - 900 milligrams per day.

Weight gain: Why are you taking lasix? In determining your proper intake of daily calories, one has to know what your ideal weight,present weight and level of daily physical activity are. If you are currently at ideal weight and don't expend much energy in your daily activities,then a daily intake of 1200-1500 calories should prevent weight gain. This amount of calories may be too much if you're very inactive. ...Read more

Lost 28lbs on 30 day hCG diet, day 11 in p4. Gained 12lbs w/abd distention (3.5") in last 10 days. Maintaining 1200 cal low carb diet. Causes?

Exercise: The HCG approach to weight loss is not recommended by multiple reputable medical organizations and fda (http://www.Fda.Gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm281333.Htm) clinical trials show no extra weight loss beyond diet alone. It can cause blood clots and serious depression. I recommend stopping hcg. Increasing exercise is a good way to get over a weight loss plateau. ...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
