I am currently on the dukan diet and I am eating two hard boiled eggs every day. Is it bad for my health?

Too much: Although no one, including me, can tell you with absolute certainty that two eggs a day will cause harm, it is generally considered a risk factor for heart disease and diabetes. If you want a healthy complete protein (all 9 amino acids) eat quinoa instead. It's gluten free. ...Read more

Can you tell me if apart from the regular diet, I am only eating two eggs and milk every day. Is that enough?

What is your diet.?: If you eat " regular diet" What is it? 2 eggs and milk may count for protein but better to have more variety. Vegetables, beans, yogurt, cheese, almond milk- good sources of nutrients. You may skip egg yolk for daily use. Cows milk in adults not best in large amount. Don't forget fish, avoid wheat. Drink plenty water and exercise regularly. Eat to feel good and be healthy. ...Read more

Will having 6 eggs (4 yolks) per day cause kidney problems? I workout. 6 days per week vigorous. I do have a 3000 calorie. Well balanced. Diet

Will having 6 eggs (4 yolks) per day cause kidney problems? I workout. 6 days per week vigorous. I do have a 3000 calorie. Well balanced. Diet

NO: I know of no evidence that eating a lot of eggs will cause kidney problems. In someone who already has kidney failure a low-protein diet is advisable to prevent progression of the disease, but high protein should not cause problems in someone with healthy kidneys. However, I strongly advise that you (and everyone) eat only organic eggs; otherwise it is likely from chickens fed gmo corn &/or soy. ...Read more

Have type 2 diabetes; and have been on a strict ketogenic low carb diet. Ques: is it safe to eat up to 8 eggs a day in terms of ldl?

It does not: Need to be ketogenic in my view. Sugar is the villain and you do need a supplement of vitamin b1 + magnesium + multivitamin. It has recently been shown that diabetics excrete a lot of vitamin b1 in urine so it is important to replace it. ...Read more

My husband feels nauseous all day every day and has no appetite.....Eating used to be a favorite thing. He is 74 years old, not overweight, eats a vegetarian diet including lots of fruit and eggs. He exercises and uses marijuana to help with the nausea. H

Needs medical eval.: Nausea and decreased appetite can be symptoms of many underlying disorders, both physical and emotional. Your husband needs a complete evaluation with medical history, physical examination and probably screening laboratory tests. If nothing physical is found, exploration of mental health issues should be done as well, since depression/anxiety can do this. Pot may be part of problem as well. ...Read more

Can be: Breast fed kids can go every feed or once a week. A bottom rash is common & may or may not be related. Some kids do react to bovine products in their mom's diet, so a week off all dairy could help you decide if it's an issue. Same with the egg. ...Read more

Is an all fruits and vegetable diet healthy or do you need bread, eggs, etc?

You need variety...: Fresh fruits and veggies are good in general because they provide some good vitamins/nutrition, but as human we cannot digest cellulose--the main component in veggies/fruits, which the cows/horse can. They can turn grass/hays into proteins/meats, we cannot. A variety of food types is recommended--see the pyramid for example. Consult your doc/nutritionist. Live well, melani6.

Food Allergies: There are plenty of good foods you can eat! Vegetable salads, Fruits Fish, Potato, Rice, Chicken, Meats. The thing is to avoid processed foods because they are likely to contain soy or egg.

Is there any vegterian diet that its egg free, my blood sign is B+ and I am 96kg my height is 186cm iam already using a diet called Gm Motors diet?

Many, however...: Vegan diets are egg-free. However, you can add dairy to a vegan diet to have an egg-free vegetarian diet. However, having a B+ blood type is no reason to avoid eggs. I question the validity of the Blood Type diet, but according to it, eggs help Type B's lose weight. I do NOT recommend the GM diet- see http://www. Livestrong.
