Are potatoes good for a low calorie diet?

Are potatoes good for a low calorie diet?

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 more

Heathy fat burner food for men?

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

I have high cholesterol (genetic, i'm healthy 25yr old), should I be careful of my egg consumption? I'm vegetarian & enjoy the source of protein

I have high cholesterol (genetic, i'm healthy 25yr old), should I be careful of my egg consumption? I'm vegetarian & enjoy the source of protein

I would not worry: Vegetarianism is a moral choice and I'm glad you are allowing yourself eggs -- this is important in keeping you healthy. If your hypercholesterolemia is familial (as mine is), you'll probably be on meds by the time it matters, and in the meantime I'd rather you simply stay fit than try a dietary modificaiton that will probably not matter much and make your life less easy & enjoyable. ...Read more

I'm on atkins, what can I eat to satisfy sweet cravings on induction to stay in ketosis?

Macadamian Nuts: macadamian nuts i'v heard many swear by (2grams net carbs per serving). As an aside, when you don't spike your' insulin with the sugar loads then leptin (the satiety hormone) will operate properly and you don't need willpower. I often illustrate Nutritional Ketosis to my patients by saying that when in ketosis you could live in a Krispy Creme Donut and not be tempted to eat one. ...Read more

Is 16 oz. Of electrolyte fluid, and 112 oz. Of water in a day unhealthy? Diet instructions given by medi weight loss doctor

Depends on solution: The content of the "electrolyte fluid" is the key to answering the question. Your daily requirements for fluid losses are exceeded by this volume, but quite acceptable if you have normal kidney function. The fluid should contain at least the daily requirements for sodium and potassium, and ideally would include additional additives (such as magnesium) in appropriate amounts. ...Read more
