Not a good eating: Habit. It helps to eat a balanced diet in small amounts during the day. Eating one big meal at night is more likely to lead to the excess calories being stored as fat. If any thing your last meal for the day should be the smallest. It would be good to consult a nutritionist or your doctor for on-going care and advice. ...Read more

After eating a small meal of apple, carrots, light low calorie bread, and one piece of fake meat. I fell asleep 30 minutes later for a half an hour or so. Weill I gain weight or will I be ok?

You will be ok: No this much consumption of carrot and low cal bread and a fake piece will not make you gain any significant weight. You have to consume 3500 calories extra without any activity, more than your body needs to maintain your normal weight to gain 1 lb of weight. So at your age if you have normal range weight and bmi you do not have to worry about weight after consuming few calories and sleeping. ...Read more

What to do if I am on diet and could someone give me a 750-900 calorie meal plan?

Not healthy: Too few calories- In general the amount of calories you are suggesting would be too low to sustain a weight loss over time. Your body may go into starvation mode and decrease its metabolism cause its not getting enough calories. I suggest more calories- with 20% as protein, 60% as complex carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables, whole grains and legumes. 20% as healthy fats from nuts, seeds, etc ...Read more

Proteins, fats, and carbs are all needed. Eat fruits low on the glycemic index scale (found w/web search). Peace and good health. ...Read more

Weight loss: Weight loss as described above is not particularly healthy nor sustainable. Most guidelines say that caloric intake for men should not fall below 1500 calories per day. The optimum number of meals is a matter of dispute in the literature, but that they should be nutritious is not. Drinking water is generally a positive in weight loss. Most sources say that losing 1-2 lbs/week is a good goal. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. Your body continues to burn calories while you sleep. The more you weigh, the more calories you burn. You don't burn as many calories sleeping as you do when you are up and about. I think what the one person may have been suggesting is that if you eat a full meal right before you go to sleep, you are not burning calories as rapidly and the food gets converted to sugar. ...Read more
