800 calorie diet, found out I'm anaemic, the iron pills are making me constipated and I don't want to eat meat because I'm vegan, what should I do?

Injectible iron: You're a grown-up now with some serious health problems including Graves's disease. It is extremely difficult for a vegan to enough iron & several other nutrients, and I would urge you to reconsider your involvement with this diet or at least to find a vegan-friendly physician to guide you. It seems to be costing you your health. Your physician can inject iron but it's unpleasant. Be wise. ...Read more

Hey I'm 5ft 2 and I weight 7 stone! How can I put weight on? I'm blending smoothies for breakfast that come to around 1000 calories!

I make breakfast my biggest meal of the day. They are usually around 400 calories, is this okay based on a 1, 500 calorie intake per day?

I make breakfast my biggest meal of the day. They are usually around 400 calories, is this okay based on a 1, 500 calorie intake per day?

Yes, it's OK: This is fine, though at 400 calories it does not sound like your biggest meal (unless you are having more than 3 meals). Not all calories are created equal, so the source of the calories is crucial. My favorite overall diet for good health is dr. Fuhrman's. See http://www. Drfuhrman.

My 1yo needs to start on Pediasure or Carnation Instant breakfast for calories (FTT), is there a "healthier" option or do I not worry about "organic"?

Depends: The Carnation product added to milk or almond milk can provide similar nutrients for a fraction of the cost of Pediasure. If your doc has explored the issues with your kids FTT and suggests a supplement, it is worth a try. Either has defined caloric and nutrient content that can support growth and make up for deficiencies in prior food seeking behavior. Continued followup is important. ...Read more

If I wake up at 3 am to eat breakfast will I gain weight? I gotta go to work at 4 am And should I count 3 am as my new calories for the day

Yes.: You will gain weight if your total calorie intake exceeds the number calories you burn up during the activities of daily living. The time of day or night you ingest the calories is immaterial.

I am vegan, and I keep track of calories/fat/protein. I am noticing that I am getting 0 cholesterol. Is this unhealthy?

You're fine: All real vegan diets have zero cholesterol. Your body makes its own cholesterol. I'm going to assume you supplement for the nutrients that you CANNOT get otherwise as a vegan, and that you have a reliable source of information about this aspect of your lifestyle choice. It's a moral one and I admire you. If you really know what you are doing, it can be as healthy as any other. Best wishes. ...Read more

Too extreme: Your body mass index is 45 = very obese. You may need professional help to create a sustainable diet/exercise plan. Walking + cycling are good; so is weightlifting to burn calories faster. But 500 cal is a starvation diet - not sustainable! Slow and steady wins the race.

If someone is obsessively counting calories and eating 500 a day, working out, and losing ten pounds a week do they likely have an eating disorder?

Yes, very possibly: 500 calories a day is not a sustainable food plan. Losing 10 pounds a week is also not healthy, because this person is likely also losing muscle. An eating disorder is very possible in this situation. If this is you, and you are truly 12 years old, you need your parents' help to see a doctor asap. ...Read more

I plan to eat normally for 5 days of a week and for 2 days, I plan to eat 500 calories. I'm 16, 5'3, and 130 pounds and play soccer. Is this healthy?

No: 500 calories is not enough "fuel" for your body, especially as an athlete. It's not wise to attempt to lose weight during a season of athletic competition. If you really wanted to limit calories on days you are not practicing or competing, then consider dropping to no fewer than 1200. ...Read more

No easy way: There is 1 formula for losing weight: Limit calorie (carb) intake and exercise daily. How you go about those 2 elements is up to you. If you starve yourself (500 cal /day) your body will go into hibernation mode and you won't lose weight. You have to eat in order to lose weight!
