Cut out carbs: You may be eating too many carbohydrates. You only need about 150 grams per day. When you eat more than you need for fuel it goes to fat stores. Don't count fat or protein calories, just carbs.

What is the best fast food restraint for a diabetic?

What is the best fast food restraint for a diabetic?

Fast food can be OK: Tips include getting junior burgers, skipping the fries and getting fruit or a salad, drinking water or tea, and walking in to order and eat instead of driving through. Don't fall for the "value meals"; they are not good deals nutritionally. Remember you've got a carb/calorie budget to stick to!

Is it possible to include junk food/fast food in my diet without gaining weight? How?

Is it possible to include junk food/fast food in my diet without gaining weight? How?

Count calories: I do not recommend this approach but if you include junk food but limit your total calories, you can still lose weight. It's just not a healthy way to lose weight.

I should put on weight because I'm skinny, but I eat every kind of food, including fast food's. Are there any relief?

I should put on weight because I'm skinny, but I eat every kind of food, including fast food's. Are there any relief?

Do not try to put on: Weight? If you are otherwise healthy, being skinny is not a disease. Soon enough you will start gaining weight and look back fondly at these days. Please eat a mixed diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts; low in saturated fats (that includes fast foods), no tobacco and no alcohol, exercise 30 minutes each.

Need adjustment: You may take fast food once a month as long as you limit your caloric intake on other days to make up of the excess fat and salt that is common in fast foods.

If I want to lose weight do you recommend cheat days? (A day of the week/month where you eat whatever junk or fast food you want)

If I want to lose weight do you recommend cheat days? (A day of the week/month where you eat whatever junk or fast food you want)

No: All you will do is defeat the hard work you have done the rest of the week/month. It's total calories that you don't eat but do burn off that leads to weight loss. It's 3500 calories to the pound. You can't learn how to eat properly for the rest of your life if you start off with cheating.

My brother is 17 years old his BP is between 115/75-125/85 is it high? He never exercises and he eats unhealthy and fast food Weight:95kg Height:173cm

My brother is 17 years old his BP is between 115/75-125/85 is it high? He never exercises and he eats unhealthy and fast food Weight:95kg Height:173cm

Unhealthy lifestyle!: 140/90 or higher is considered high blood pressure. However eating unhealthy and fast food and never exercising is likely to lead to serious health problems such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. I am available to consult with your brother about healthy lifestyles and good nutrition on HealthTap if he desires.

I have try â lot of dieet but I don't loose weight. I'm now 130 kg but for 10 years 100 kg. I eat healty, no fast food no soda. I don't know what to do?

I have try â lot of dieet but I don't loose weight. I'm now 130 kg but for 10 years 100 kg. I eat healty, no fast food no soda. I don't know what to do?

Losing weight: Gimmic diets don't work! The only way to lose weight, is slowly, to burn more calories than you take in over time. That means you need smaller portions and more exercise. It needs to be a long-term commitment. You should shoot for no more than 0.5-1 kilograms of weight loss per week. A visit to a dietitian may assist you in figuring your calorie counts. Stick with it. Good luck.

How much weight would I gain approximately if I were to eat nothing but fast food for a week like in that movie?

How much weight would I gain approximately if I were to eat nothing but fast food for a week like in that movie?

Fast Food obesity!!: This is a very good question and one that you may already know the answer to. But, you would most likely gain some weight and also would clog up your arteries with excess fats and sugars that can add to your risk of heart disease. But, I wold hesitate to guess the amount of weight you would gain. And, I would highly not advise you to do this experiment.

I gain weight easily. If I eat a lot of (fast food) for a week, I would see a huge difference in my weight. I have friends who eat so much but they r ok?

Body composition: Body composition (muscle and fat) differs from person to person as does the amount of calories a person burns. Fast food is very high in calories and fat and im not suprised you would gain weight. Don't compare yourself to others, eat healthy and listen to your own body. If you don't want fast weight gain, don't eat fast foods. Choose healthier alternatives, prepare your own foods.

Eating proteins: Proteins include meats, fish, chicken, and eggs -- plus many vegetarian sources like beans, lentils, tofu, whole grains like quinoa, nuts, seeds, nut butters, protein powder supplements you can put in milk (including almond ; coconut milk if you don't like dairy), etc. Http://tinyurl. Com/64pdzse potatoes are starchy carbohydrates -- you would need to add fat or protein to them.

I'm overweight and I work at a fast food place, and get exercise constantly. I don't eat often and always drink water. How do I lose weight?

I'm overweight and I work at a fast food place, and get exercise constantly. I don't eat often and always drink water. How do I lose weight?

Diet and exercise: At work your activity is stop and go and not 30 minutes of continuous cardio activity. And if you munch at work that puts on the calories. Keep a diary of everything you put in your mouth for a week. See doctor to make sure there is not another problem going on.

Causes of weight loss despite eating like pig (fast food, mini muffins, sugared bevs)? Normal CBC. Low-end salivary cortisol. Other Sx are fatigue, sleep issues, and excessive urination. More likely adrenal failure or cancer, and what kind?

Causes of weight loss despite eating like pig (fast food, mini muffins, sugared bevs)? Normal CBC. Low-end salivary cortisol. Other Sx are fatigue, sleep issues, and excessive urination. More likely adrenal failure or cancer, and what kind?

Rule out diabetes: And not diabetic? Doubt cancer. And why would you have adrenal failure out of the blue? Not a chronic steroid user, are you? Or had recent infection? Sounds like you need to see an endocrine if your PCP can‘t figure it out. Could be an autoimmune thing, too.

Avoid sugar/starch: The healthiest way to eat is to stick with real food. If you only do one thing avoid sugar drinks of all kinds. Keep in mind that artificial sweeteners are just as bad as sugar (for different reasons). Look into the paleo approach to eating.

Can athletes eat fast food without consequences?

Poor nutrition: The food one eats is the fuel your body needs to perform. As an athlete who wants to perform at a high level, it behooves you to put the best fuel possible in your body. Fast food is one of the worst fuels possible. Consider less processed foods and more natural whole foods.
