Heathy fat burner food for men?

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 exercise 50-90 minutes a day, eat clean food, never exceed 1600 calories and I cannot stop gaining weight. (174 cm; 64 kg). It is slow, but constant?

I exercise 50-90 minutes a day, eat clean food, never exceed 1600 calories and I cannot stop gaining weight. (174 cm; 64 kg). It is slow, but constant?

Something amiss: Based on your age, gender, weight and height your basal metabolic rate is around 1400 cal/day: thats what you need just to live without moving at all! Odds are you burn more than 200 cal just moving about, without including your exercise. So either something awry with you metabolism and/or your estimated caloric intake. You should review this with your doc. ...Read more

Ok that i cut out sweet potatoes and bread or was i wrong doing so? I'm tryin to lose weight, usually eat vegs, white meat, beans, 1 egg a day.

Ok that i cut out sweet potatoes and bread or was i wrong doing so? I'm tryin to lose weight, usually eat vegs, white meat, beans, 1 egg a day.

Wise to reduce bread: Most experts would agree that avoiding bread helps people to lose weight- it is wise to minimize starches, esp. Those that raise blood sugar as much as bread does. However, sweet potatoes have many useful nutrients and don't raise blood sugar nearly as much as bread or white potatoes, so i see no need to cut them out- see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=foodspice&dbid=64 for more info. ...Read more

What type of specific meal plan can increase calorie intake to 2000 for college student. I'm 5"11 and weigh 125 with high metabolism. I'm very slim. ?

Slim: Yes you are slim and yes, you need to put on weight. Of the various options available to you I would start by having an appointment made with a hospital (or university) based dietitian. You won't bulge overnight but I am confident you will gain weight. ...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

Can blood sugar for type i diabetic (age43), onset 3 years ago, be controlled with minimum lantus (insulin glargine) and strict diet of protein, vegetable and fruit?

Can blood sugar for type i diabetic (age43), onset 3 years ago, be controlled with minimum lantus (insulin glargine) and strict diet of protein, vegetable and fruit?

No: If you are truly a type 1 diabetic, then the main treatment for you is insulin. Avoiding Insulin in a type 1 is just going to make you sicker. Lifestyle changes can decrease the amount of Insulin needed to keep your blood sugar normal but you do need to consume adequate amount of calories. ...Read more

High blood pressure 160 /100 my age 29 y.Test show hi level of  triglycerides , hi level (ldl)  low level( hdl) been a year on healthy diet lose 10 kg?

Keep going : The current weight is not provided, but if not at ideal body weight, further weight will likely help. Weight and diet are two pieces of the puzzle. Environmental factors and genetics predisposition are others. Blood pressure of 160/100 is hi for a 29 year old and most would start blood pressure medications at this point. Great job on the < 20 pounds weight loss. ...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.

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

Managed high BP. healthy diet. Exercise regularly - HIIT. Prediabetic. Cholesterol borderline.Why heart rate increase rapidly after a short day nap?

Heart rate is: regulated under autonomic control and function. Aging, glucose intolerance, medications, physical condition and hydration can all have effects on the autonomic system resulting in variability to the heart rate response to various activities. Sleeping can additionally affect the autonomic responses. I suspect this is normal physiology for you and represents your body's response to these factors. ...Read more
