I would have a dietician do an analysisof the amounts eaten first, if it seems that your intake is adequate, the next step is to look for evidence of malabsorption or processing problems. ...Read more

Losing Fat: To really lose fat you need more than just low carb diet. You need low calorie diet, with the majority of the calories being proteins. And, you need to burn fat and not protein with the exercise you do. This is usually a cardiovascular exercise where the heart rate does not go above 130 BPM for at the very least twenty minutes per session. ...Read more

What is the best resource for a low-fat, low-sugar, low carbohydrate, high protein vegan diet?

What is the best resource for a low-fat, low-sugar, low carbohydrate, high protein vegan diet?

Hi i need a list of carbs to know what foods cut in my diet thanks?

Google carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are good sources of energy, but they are easy to overdo! healthy carbohydrates include whole grain bread and cereals like oatmeal. Less healthy carbs include cakes, cookies, candy - you get the point: sugar is a carbohydrate! alcohol is a carbohydrate. You may want to limit your carbs to the healthier ones and try to reduce your intake of sugary junk food. Good luck. ...Read more
