Is guave shake good during diet?

Is guave shake good during diet?

Sure: Just go really easy on the sugar. Don't expect any magical health benefits. While you're dieting, you know to avoid anything heavy on sugar, salt, or grease. Most important is getting into a healthy lifestyle with friends for whom fitness is a big part of life. The fact you asked about a novel fruit drink that can be low in calories says to me you're already making these changes. Good luck. ...Read more

Diet tips for fussy eaters--salads, shakes, what?

Diet tips for fussy eaters--salads, shakes, what?

Picky eaters: Portion control is a better way to think of reducing intake. When you think of it only as making nutritious choices, then anything goes as long as it is not empty calories. A hard boiled egg, a hand full of nuts (like almonds), and a whole grain slice of bread with a variety of vegetables will keep you full longer than a diet shake and salad. ...Read more

Are ensure shakes or a multivitamin better for bad diet?

Are ensure shakes or a multivitamin better for bad diet?

Multivitamin but...: I do not recommend ensure- the first ingredient is sugar, followed by corn sugar; it's full of genetically-modified corn, soy ; canola oil ; has dairy from cow given hormones ; antibiotics ; has low doses of vitamins. A good multivit. Is far better- see http://bit. Ly/1b36cq0 for ratings of 101 multivits- choose one in the top 30. This will help but is no substitute for a healthy diet- see comment:. ...Read more

What to do if I'm on a liquid diet of meal replacement shakes (morning (hungry). Is this healthy way to diet?

What does the body do with excess protein? If you eat a balanced diet and can get enough protein from these meals, what good are protein shakes?

What does the body do with excess protein? If you eat a balanced diet and can get enough protein from these meals, what good are protein shakes?

Metabolism: Excess protein is either metabolized to form glucose (sugar) or fat. By definition a balanced diet should have "enough" protein. If you need to supplement your protein intake with shakes, your aren't looking for a "balanced diet", but rather one slighted towards protein intake - I'm not saying that's good or bad. I would encourage you to focus on natural foods rather than shakes. ...Read more

What diet can I follow if I have adpkd and wanting to build muscle. No current evidence available to support dietary protein vs protein shake.

What diet can I follow if I have adpkd and wanting to build muscle. No current evidence available to support dietary protein vs protein shake.

Weight training.: The vast majority of evidence does not support the need for a low-protein diet in ADPKD, as long as you have not reached the point of having renal insufficiency. I would recommend a diet with a normal amount of protein, but a good weight training regimen to help build muscle. Extra protein is not necessary for muscle gain. ...Read more

What negative health complication could arise when doing protein shake diet, high protein, zero carb and zero fat, for a short period (10 days)?

What negative health complication could arise when doing protein shake diet, high protein, zero carb and zero fat, for a short period (10 days)?

Putting a lot of: stress on your kidneys. Good fats help maintain skin, brain health, digestion, and absorption of vital nutrients from food, vegetables, fruits, and enzymes. So not having that for 10 days seems rather severe. Also, there is thought that a no fat diet tends to make people have less satiety and feel hungry more. What type of protein, vegetable or meat? It's not a balanced approach. Low carb is better. ...Read more
