I started going to a diet dr. And the diet she reccomended doesn't allow me any dairy, bread, fruits, starches of any kind. Is this healthy?

I started going to a diet dr. And the diet she reccomended doesn't allow me any dairy, bread, fruits, starches of any kind. Is this healthy?

Eat balanced diet: Restriction diets that limit lots of different "good" foods may work in the short term, but such diets are not meant to be followed for a long time. A simple rule of thumb is to cut back on calories by eating smaller meals and avoiding snacks. Exercise to tone, and to burn calories. Keep in mind that fat=9 calories/gram whereas proteins and carbohydrates =4 calories/gram of food. Eat healthy! ...Read more

Is beyond diet a good option to choose to start a diet? They allow only to eat organic foods and they don't allow wheat, soy and corn. I am starving

Is beyond diet a good option to choose to start a diet? They allow only to eat organic foods and they don't allow wheat, soy and corn. I am starving

Yes, no need 2 starve: I can not find many details without paying but I believe everyone should eat only organic if possible- see http://bit. Ly/19xax7e
avoiding simple carbs like wheat ; corn is a well-proven method of losing weight-try quinoa instead! I don't feel all soy should be avoided-fermented soy like tempeh ; miso are ok in moderation. I avoid all those for a month every spring ; don't starve at all-see comment:. ...Read more

Can a very low calorie diet allow you to maintain lean mass?

Can a very low calorie diet allow you to maintain lean mass?

If moderate exercise: If one does some mild or moderate exercise, for 30-40 minutes, 3-4 times a week, she will likely stimulate his muscles enough to maintain them. On a "very low" calorie diet, she can get into trouble if the calories are too few (his body may break down muscle for fuel). Thus, "very low" calorie diets should be adjusted into "moderately low" calorie diets, which also have better long-term success. ...Read more

How can I best put on muscle on a vegetarian diet that doesn't allow for eggs? Also, I suspect I am lactose intolerant..

How can I best put on muscle on a vegetarian diet that doesn't allow for eggs? Also, I suspect I am lactose intolerant..

Plant-based protein: To build muscle eat more calories than you burn using healthy whole food sources like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans/nuts. You will be getting plenty of protein if you eat a variety of vegetables and legumes. You will of course need to train hard and get enough rest to recover between workouts. Do these things consistently, and you will see results. Many body-builders are vegans now. ...Read more

How often can I allow myself a treat? No health issues, love my chocolate or nuts daily

Every day-moderation: There is no need to limit nuts, as they are among the healthiest of foods, though raw unsalted nuts may be healthier than salted roasted nuts. Almonds & walnuts are especially healthy. Chocolate is actually good for you if it is dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa solids- probably up to 2 ounces a day. If sweeter chocolates then consume less. If a food gives you joy then enjoy it in moderation. ...Read more
