Are there foods i can eat that will make me loose heaps of weight? I don't have time to exercise. I have no current medical conditions.
Balanced diet: There really are no magic foods. You need to eat healthy, decrease your sugar and caloric intake. Exercise is relative- park your car as far away from where you have to go to and walk-take the stairs and not the elevator. All these little things will add up. This will be a slow process. Quick fixes do not work in the long run. You need to be in it for the long haul. ...Read more
What can happen to my childrens health if they don't eat any vegetables? I have 2 girls-- 8 years & 5 years. They refuse to eat any vegetables, no matter what form or how i try to hide them in certain foods. Will not drink any juice that has ve
Picky : Picky eaters can drive a parent nuts! luckily, many studies have shown that even though your child may only eat one or two things in the course of a day, when looking at the week or even month, they have surprisingly balanced diets. Even kids that refuse veggies will receive plenty of vitamins and minerals from other sources such as fruits, grains, dairy and meat. Relax knowing that it's your job to buy and prepare nutritious food creatively and it's their jobs to eat it. As long as your child is healthy and growing properly (you can ask their doctor about their growth charts), you can take a deep breath and know they'll be ok in the long run. Here are a few tips for picky kids: -get them involved. Plant a garden. Have them shop with you and pick out foods they want to try. Get them involved in the preparation. Kids are more likely to eat the foods over which they feel some ownership and pride. -use peer pressure to your advantage. Invite over non-picky friends and serve foods your children might not normally try or eat. You might be surprised what they eat when their friends are doing it, too. -use dips. Kids love to dip. Healthy dip suggestions are: cottage cheese, fruit and veggie purees, cream cheese, guacamole, yogurt and peanut butter. -presentation is everything. Making food look pretty and fun is half the battle. Serve food in interesting dishes such as measuring cups or toy plates. Make "food art" with foods cut into interesting shapes with cookie cutters and using the plate to create a picture. -encourage "trying" instead of "eating" a new food. Many children do not like veggies because they can taste very different to a kid than they do to an adult. As your children mature, so will their tastes. Foods they previously did not like may suddenly become "not so bad". And "trying" is much less intimidating than "eating". If you are really concerned about their vitamin intake, there's nothing wrong with using a children's chewable daily vitamin to put your mind at ease.

On average, how long does food take to move through the digestive tract? Are there any foods that are prone to getting "stuck" and causing upset?
Hours to Days: Common GI transit times, from foods labeled with radio-tracer elements, vary from a few hours up to about 3 days, with a day or two common. We normally add about 7 liters of water (from the blood stream) to what is ingested, so that the food becomes a thin watery soup in order to facilitate digestion; enzymes can only get to what is suspended, with a large surface area, in a thin watery solution. ...Read more

Reducing stress (ie. Taking time to relax daily) will give you more relief from psorriasis than any diet will. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What are good foods to eat when you have a cold? I know there's no cure, but which foods are best to help w/symptoms or boosting the immune system?
No difference: Sorry to burst any bubbles about diet, infections, and the immune system. But the foods you eat or avoid will make no difference in your cold symptoms or how quickly it clears up. Just maintain a normal diet, with increased fluids if you have fever. Whatever tastes good and goes down easy will be just fine. ...Read more
All over fat loss: Spot fat loss doesn't work. When you lose fat, it is lost from all over, not just over the hips and thighs (or any other "problem area"). Exercises for a particular body part will strengthen the underlying muscles, which will make that particular area look better however. Here's a link to some good thigh exercises: http://www.Fitnessmagazine.Com/workout/thighs/exercises/top-thigh-exercises/. ...Read more

I have oral allergy syndrome. Is there any advice on how to eat healthier when i cannoy eat any fresh fruit and most veg? Thanks
Yes: No one is allergic to all vegetables and fruits and thus you should be able to find something you can eat. Oral allergy syndrome is mainly a nuisance and does not lead to throat swelling or anaphylaxis. You may try taking an antihistamine about 1-2 hrs prior to eating the offending fruit or veggi and see it this helps. If not , staying away from them would be only logical. ...Read more
