What has protein. Low carb and low or no sugar. Need protein diet?

I think you are: Asking about a low carb diet. Please check w/professional to make sure this is a good food plan for you. Meat and diary are high protein food sources. Complex carbs such as whole grains and vegetables break down more slowly in the body and are better for you than simple carbs from refined grains in bread, muffins, cookies, etc. Please look up glycemic index and eat low on that. Peace. ...Read more

Benefits and dangers of low carb high fat ketogenic diets?

Extremes: I believe it is better for most to eat nearly everything in moderation instead of going on an extreme diet. I don't see how getting ketosis, which may reduce your appetite, can be good for the body. As for the high fat, too much saturated fat is likely harmful because it promotes inflammation. If you must, try unsaturated fat. ...Read more

Are low carb diets healthier than diets with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and lean proteins?

Are low carb diets healthier than diets with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and lean proteins?

Not necessarily: There is no single diet that is best for everyone. I believe it is wise to minimize sugars and simple starches, but i believe a diet with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and low-fat proteins is healthier than a strict low carb diet (which is relatively high in fat and protein). See http://drrandybaker.Com/2013/01/20/diet-and-health/ for my essay on the pros and cons of various diets. ...Read more

Is a 1500 calorie diet healthy and sustainable if vegetables, fruit, lean protein and in processed carbohydrates are consumed?

Weight and Activity: Yes that diet can certainly be sustained if it provides for the caloric expenditure of the individual on a daily basis. The mix of foods you choose is also very good. By "processed" i assume you mean complex carbohydrates. If you happen to be 350lbs and 6ft 4in then you are going to be rather hungry for quite some time. ...Read more

What will eating a low calorie, high protein diet do to the body?

What will eating a low calorie, high protein diet do to the body?

Depends on the exten: of the change from an average diet. normally we need about 10x weight in pounds to maintain weight. 10-20% below that, you'll lose weight. If you don't do muscle stimulation (weight lifting) it will be mainly loss of muscle. 50% less than required calories could cause metabolic serious problems. Protein causes a bit more kidney work.

Can you tell me in the gym. but I'm just curious what a low-fat, low-calorie, high protein diet will do to my body. will I gain weight?

Depends.: on total calories in versus out. WIth exercise, the weight loss WON'T be all from muscle loss; without it, that is likely to occur. 10xweight = calories used daily 100-500 additional / hr from exercise; 4000 calories is a pound. http://www.amazon.com/dp/0692496157/ has additional info on the psychology of weight loss. ...Read more

So recently I went on a high calorie, high protein diet. But within a day or two of starting this diet, I got a fever and I was Incredibly tired.

High Cal and protein: Any time you change your routine you stress your body. If you start a diet and exercise program too aggressively you put too much stress on a body and immune system not prepared for it. Unless you have a genetic problem metabolizing protein or are taking a supplement that caused the fever, it is more likely an opportunistic viral infection and a weakened immune system. Try fluids and moderation. ...Read more

Is a high calorie, high fat or high protein diet beneficial to young cystic fibrosis patients?

Not high fat: One of the problems folks with CF have is that their pancreatic duct gets blocked. This means that the fat-digesting enzymes from their pancreas can't get to their gut and break down the fat they eat. A high-fat diet would be very bad in this situation. You need to have conversations with your CF doc to optimize your diet. You should have both a pulmonologist and a GI doc on your team. ...Read more

Will building the leg muscles through weight training & high calorie protein diet help reduce the appearance of saggy thighs post weight loss? Age 22.

Will building the leg muscles through weight training & high calorie protein diet help reduce the appearance of saggy thighs post weight loss? Age 22.

It depends: It depends on how much weight you have lost. If it was a significant amount, the fat is lost but the skin was stretched so far that it just hangs when the fat disappears. We are talking about a hundred pounds or more that would affect this type of change. If it was 20-30 pounds, working the thigh muscles will firm and build up the muscle structures that the skin will not hang. ...Read more

Depends on...: lots of factors, including but not limited to: baseline weight, percentage body fat, level of activity, amount of protein and calories in the diet, other. Initial weight loss includes relatively lots of fluid loss ( due to protein metabolism and waste removal). "Hard" part comes later, slower.

Im trying to loose my baby belly, so should I go on a high protein diet?

No fads: In my opinion, you're thinking about this wrong. Diets (short term caloric restrictions) do not result in weight loss that is maintained. Subtle but sustainable changes to your diet (what you eat every day) can have life-long results. Make subtle changes to what you eat to take in fewer calories per day and increase your activity to burn more. You should not shoot to loss more than 1 pound/week. ...Read more
