Are energy drinks, like "boost" or the Atkins diet energy drink ok for a no carb diet?

Are energy drinks, like "boost" or the Atkins diet energy drink ok for a no carb diet?

Energy Drinks: First there is no medical or health benefit from 'energy drinks'. These drinks are usually high in caffeine and/or sugars. I would read the labels and if there are any carbs in the drink recommend that you not ingest it. But, in general i would recommend avoiding these unnecessary and non-nutritional drinks all together. ...Read more

Essentially, since weight loss is about calories in and calories out, why do cardio?

Essentially, since weight loss is about calories in and calories out, why do cardio?

If that were true: Then cardio helps to burn calories, so that would go towards the calories out half of the equation. Most nutritional medicine experts now say that muscle-toning/strengthening exercise is probably more effective than just cardio alone (i.e. Weight training 70-80% of your exercise and cardio 20-30%). ...Read more

Can a diet high in soy protein smoothies help one lose weight?

Not by itself: Some food plans may include protein shakes or smoothies as meal replacements, but you can't rely exclusively on these for nutrition.

Should fruit and vegetables be counted in a calorie reduced diet?

Should fruit and vegetables be counted in a calorie reduced diet?

Agree w Dr. F.: I suspect the question arose because weight watchers changed its plan last year to make most fruits and veggies 0 points. Their aim was to get you eating more of these foods, which will fill you up, and tend to be much less calorie dense than less healthy choices. You still need to reduce total calorie intake to lose weight, and zero points does not mean zero calories. ...Read more

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

One must consume less calories than they burn.I eat very small amounts of food which mainly consists of vegetables. I move A LOT. No weight loss.Why?

One must consume less calories than they burn.I eat very small amounts of food which mainly consists of vegetables. I move A LOT. No  weight loss.Why?

First point is true: "One must consume less calories than they burn" or else one will not lose any weight. Even if one is eating apparently small amounts of food, and moving a lot, the laws of nature do not change... meaning there will not be weight loss until the number of calories absorbed into one's body is less than the number of calories burned each day. This is always true for normal, healthy people. ...Read more
