Also avoid excess milk since this can inhibit iron absorption. ...Read more

I was on protein diet I was lose every week 3kg my diet plan included 5 meals a lot of vegetables, fish, chicken, and beef 45min workout is it healthy?

I was on protein diet I was lose every week 3kg my diet plan included 5 meals a lot of vegetables, fish, chicken, and beef 45min workout is it healthy?

Slow it down: Losing 3 kg (6.6 pounds) a week is a pretty rapid weight loss. If you have a lot (30+ kg) to lose, this rate may be ok. The frequent eating is good as is "lot of vegetables." The protein is ok, but ideally you would have a little fiber/carbohydrate, too. Calories >900/day. If a variety of exercises in workout, 45 min/day is ok. Slow down weight loss to maximize chance of permanent loss. ...Read more

Hi I had a question, I used to be 380 pounds and I've lost about 150 pounds through dieting and moderate exercise over a course I tried eating very small meals (only one meal a day) with an hour of walking on the treadmill to see if I could tighten or loo

First: First you need to be congratulated on your amazing accomplishment. My first bit of advise is that you should definitely meet with a nutritionist to come up with a workable long term plan. Eating 1 meal a day sets you up for weight regain, because your metabolic rate has likely been turned down greatly. As far as your attempts at "spot" training in the gym with goals of weight loss in one specific area of your body, this simply is a myth that doesn't work. Don't be discouraged, no human body is able to lose weight in one specific area. This is usually an "all or none" phenomenon. As you lose fat, it will disappear everywhere, but at genetically predetermined rate. This is why for some people the issue I love handles vs. Thighs vs. Belly fat.
Most important thing you should do is accept the new lifestyle you have chosen and make sure you eat at least 3 to 4 normal sized healthier meals a day. This will minimize your chance of weight regain. ...Read more

My wife eats one meal a day that includes one bag of spinach, a bowl of fat free sugar free pudding and grapes. Is this healthy? She's not dieting.

My wife eats one meal a day that includes one bag of spinach, a bowl of fat free sugar free pudding and grapes. Is this healthy? She's not dieting.

Hi fiber & hi carbs: If her daily diet has as little variation as you describe, then no she is not eating a balanced healthy diet. While she is getting a considerable amount of fiber, she is eating little protein or fat. Please explore with her the reasons for her self-imposed dietary restriction/ choices then suggest she may benefit from nutritionist counseling to best achieve her longterm dietary requirements. ...Read more

I have been dieting & although I've lost some weight anytime I eat a regular meal I gain 3 or 4 lbs. How can I rectify that at my weight (340 lbs)?

I have been dieting & although I've lost some weight anytime I eat a regular meal I gain 3 or 4 lbs. How can I rectify that at my weight (340 lbs)?

Consider surgery: At 340, the likelihood for pills and diet to be effective long term is only 1%. With a normal sized stomach, you could diet all week, but have one modern full meal and consume 2500-4000 calories. Your body can only use about 1800 cal as glucose and glycogen (short storage). The rest must get stored as fat. Hence, you gain weight. You might consider bariatric surg to decrease capacity and hunger. ...Read more

I have a hypertention and I have only one kidney. Would you give me some comment for my diet plan?

Normal diet: I only have 1 kidney too. 1 kidney is more than enough to live a normal, unrestricted life. Be sure your BP is well controlled. Avoiding excess salt is a prudent plan. As would be true for people with 2 kidneys, a low fat, plant based, well balanced diet, avoiding becoming overweight is a good plan. ...Read more

I want to lose 20kg in one month. Plz help me with a vegetarian diet plan for it?

Impossible, but...: It is impossible to lose 20 kg in one month; 20 kg in a year is more realistic. The best diet is one with minimal sugars & simple carbs from grains. Also avoid fried foods. I like Dr. Furhman's diet, which is primarily vegetarian:

Hi, my SGPT level is 76 (normal rang is < 45) I have a horrible stomach or liver pain for one year, need to know best diet plan and ways to reduce it.

Need for evaluation: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it is important to determine why SGPT is elevated and the treatment should be directed at the cause. If you are overweight, it is important to reduce weight. You should get tested for hepatitis infection among other issues. ...Read more

Are cheat meals allowed when on a diet? Like lets say once a week but only for one meal, not a whole day?

Are cheat meals allowed when on a diet? Like lets say once a week but only for one meal, not a whole day?

Not unreasonable: Obviously the more strictly one follows a diet the better the results, but you should still have very good results if you cheat only once a week for one meal- and if it makes it easier to stay on the diet it will be a valuable thing. The trick is to maintain a limit on cheating as it can be a slippery slope. And even when cheating try to be moderate. ...Read more
