Bahamian Diet Shake Ingredients
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
Refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy.

On Antibiotics - says you need food with them - On a shake diet at the moment - is that ok? Or do you think it's food need to eat - thank you
Food w/medications: Hello to buffer the stomach so you don't have GI symptoms. The food can also help to body to metabolize the medicine. Please speak w/y0ur doc about this but if the shake works for you that sounds good. Peace and good health. ...Read more
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
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
I am trying to loose weight & have took herbal tablets & protien shakes, how should I alter my diet to effectively lose weight?
Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done (weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/ (depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more

I have been trying hard to gain weight but cant. I follow a healthy diet whch includes bananas, milk shake, nuts, almonds. I eat every 3 hours.
Deserves evaluation: A surprising number of people have trouble gaining weight. This sounds like a good diet that should help you gain weight. You may have digestive problems leading to poor absorption of nutrients. You might have intestinal parasites. An overactive thyroid could also cause this. I advise being evaluated by a gastroenterologist or holistic doctor- see http://www. Abihm. Org/search-doctors. ...Read more
My heartburn became chronic after including more fruit in veg. Diet. Seems linked to stress, but can't shake it even though I returned to normal diet?
What to do if I'm on a liquid diet of meal replacement shakes (morning (hungry). Is this healthy way to diet?
If it is your usual food liquified, obviously you'll get the same results as regularly eating. If it is just water and you skip ONE meal a day. Not very bad generally and MIGHT lose a little weight. Depends on if the liquid is full nutrition. Generally changing diet temporarily lowers intake

Want to do gm (general motors) diet for fat loss, so need to ask that can I take any protein shakes during that 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?
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
No carbs: If you take in a protein shake that is low to no carbohydrates, your body may break down fat to use as a source of fuel to run the muscles and organs in your body. Its not the healthiest way to supply energy since your body runs better on glucose and the breakdown of starches. ...Read more

No!!!: Talk to your dr, ask to see a dietitian or find a clinical lipidologist (dr. Board certified in lipid disorders) to help you.

1 week on this diet? 4 protein shakes, 2 servings of fruit, 4 servings of veggies =1000 cals only water and tea. No health issues
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)?
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
