No negative energy. ...Read more

Are calories from fruit the same as other calories? I heard if you just eat fruit you can eat more calories and lose weight.

Fruit is high in: Fructose, which is a sugar. That's more the issue than calories. If you only eat fruit you can raise your blood sugar and that is not good. Please see a nutritionist for guidance. Proteins, fats, and carbs are all needed. Peace and good health. ...Read more

116 lbs overweight. Started high protein/fiber, low calorie diet. Eating more than usual but less calories and fat. Lost 3.4 lbs in 3 days. Ok? Eating1300-1400 calories per day. Never hungry for more

Congratulations: Congratulations on attempting to lose weight! the problem with diets is that they are sometimes unsustainable. If you are eating 1300 calories per day and are not hungry this is a sign that you were maybe overeating before. The best solution is to make long term lifestyle changes. Losing a pound a day may be too much, a more realistic goal is 2-4 lbs per week. ...Read more

Not a daily effect: Keep a dietary journal and graph your weight on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Add cross training: high and low impact aerobics and remember that diet= what you eat, what you do and who you are. Exercise with a picture of yourself at a thinner weight ( who you are ) and also have a picture of yourself ( or someone you want to look like) placed on your dressing mirror. High protein, 1500 cal diet. ...Read more

226 lbs eating about 1200 calories. Could i lose weight by eating 75-80 carbs daily?

CutCarbs AsLowAsAble: The key is not calories (measured in a calorimeter, not by eating) but food choices. Go hf/lc, cut all carbs (even non-sugar sweeteners) which drive insulin+amylin output & hunger, eat when hungry, wt daily to 0.1 lb & record. Fat will start coming off within days to weeks. Exercise can help but is mostly for other benefits. Study my other answers, dietdoctor, science for smart people, nusi.Org. ...Read more

Y? Normal day intake, poptart, ice cream, popcorn, Apple, cheese. Go weeks without "real meal" THEN eat one & MAJOR Poops! Makeme NOT want 2 eat again

Poor diet: Poptart, ice cream, popcorn, apple, and cheese does not provide adequate nutrition. There are several essential nutrients that are lacking. Eating small amounts frequently is healthy but you need much more variety in your diet. When you go weeks without a "real meal", and THEN eat one, your intestines have a hard time digesting the entire meal, resulting in more waste (MAJOR poop). ...Read more

Will eating fatty/calcium rich foods like tahini butter give false positive blood work 12 hours later if you have low calcium? Fat feeling in stomach.
