Best diets for gym..  Plz mention the items and quantity... Not like 100g protein!

Take charge: I am very glad you are gymming. But nobody here is going to design your diet for you -- you're an adult now with your own preferences. Protein after a workout, limiting calories sufficient to lose body fat for definition, and avoiding the worst grease / sugar / salt. Imitate the other guys. Creatine & an electronic muscle stimulator if ok with your physician. Good luck -- you'll look & feel great. ...Read more

My roommate keeps on snacking. She's eating lots of vegetables but gives up eating rice. How can I help her to practise a healthy diet? She's 19.

Here's an idea: I'm glad you care. Nobody likes to be told what to do, especially when you're almost grown up. Actually, i'm glad she's doing vegetables -- many folks don't. Rice isn't essential and neither is the traditional 3 meals per day. If she's becoming obese she probably would like a good model. The best you can do is invite her to eat out with you and offer her / suggest healthy stuff. ...Read more

Can whole grain bread cause inflammation in whiteheads acne or agrevate those whiteheads?
