Pregnancy: Take your prenatal vitamins. The rest are not necessary and the weight loss supplement could cause your baby harm. Be sure to get enough calcium - 1200 to 1500 mg. If not pregnant, a healthy and well balanced diet is the best source of nutrients and you can bank the money saved on vitamins. A multivitamin would be fine. ...Read more

I am on a low carb diet, using mct oil. Which supplement is healthier to include to speed up my weight loss? Cla or calcium pyruvate? Or others?

No problem: I think the essential oil diffuser is fine, you are speaking about a natural scent in the room, so should be any risk there. Grapefruit has no harmful effects either. Although, you need to be sure if this is a weight loss product that you understand the ingredients. If there are also ingredients like ephedra, caffeine or other weight loss additives in there proceed with caution. ...Read more

Fried food not wise!: Fried food is one of the least healthy things we can eat & is certainly not a good strategy for losing weight! eating "no carbs" is extreme. Not all carbs are bad- avoiding starches- sugar, grains, potatoes & sweeter fruits will help you lose weight, but do not avoid most vegetables. You need more than a week to lose much. See www.

It depends: It is more than calories but a overall balance of carbohydrate, protein, and fat that can make the biggest long-term changes.

Healthy oils and healthy fats need to stay. Cutting out simple sugars is always safe. Don't forget to get enough protein or you will lose muscle instead of fat.

For best results, your diet and weight loss goals need a in depth assessment to correctly guide you. ...Read more

I mean if I follow a diet to lose weight about 1200 calorie should I put oil in ny food or can I replace it by fruit?

Be aware: That a 1200 cal/day diet is a rather restricted caloric intake. It will help you lose weight but isn't a sustainable diet. It also may predispose you to micronutrient deficiency (think minerals and vitamins), so consider a supplement for this. Fruit are fine, but don't forget the veggies. Just be aware, oils can be great but they are calorically dense, so be mindful of how much use are using. ...Read more

Hi doctors. Is fish oil suitable for me? I'm 22 yrs old. I exercise 4 times a week. Can I take fish oil supplement to lose weight?

Can take, but...: There should be no problem supplementing your diet with fish oil (can help manage your lipid levels), but for weight loss it has not proven to be effective. I would increase your aerobic exercise past 30 minutes continuously, keep it at low resistance, high repetition, and long duration. Those three characteristics help in conjunction with decreasing your oral intake, and avoid injury. ...Read more
