Can I Drink Coffee On A Diet
Why avoid coffee?: There is no need for people on a diet to avoid coffee. The caffeine can suppress appetite and stimulate metabolism. You might not want to add much cream or sugar. Black coffee has about 2 calories per cup. Organic is the healthiest. Consider stevia as a safe non-caloric sweetener. Of course tea, either herbal, green or black and water are good alternatives. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If i cut sugar out my diet except for maybe a cup of orange juice a day and drink only water and do weightlifting and walking will i lose weight?
Maybe: You have to control two things: calories ingested calories burned that's all. The 3rd factor is your genetically given physiology/metabolism, and how efficiently you burn/utilize calories, and where the body prefers to store fat. Honestly not too much to do about these factors despite all the gimmicks that shysters promote. ...Read more

I weigh 264 lbs and i wanna go on a juice diet so how much juice should I drink a day i tried eating nutritional food like a lot of fiber, small meals but it seem not to work.
There : There is not a simple answer to this question. A healthy juicing program is not about drinking a lot of juices from the can instead of eating food. There are many different juicing plans with goals that may vary from detoxifying the body naturally, losing weight to assisting with a large variety of health conditions. Juicing is also not a permanent approach when it is used as the sole source of calories. It is time limited (unless you are just using juicing to add healthy, fresh juices to your normal diet). Juicing can have extraordinary health benefits - when done correctly. Before starting any juicing plan, it is important that you discuss it with your doctor, to ensure that it will not be problematic for you. For instance if a diabetic person drank lots of fruit juice, they might have serious problems with their blood sugar. Juicing requires preparation. First, you will need a juicer. There a number of types of juicers, most often you will see juice extractors being used. (they extract the juice from the pulp). A regular blender will not replace a juicer (even though there are some juicers that work through pulverizing). There are many juicing recipes depending on the purpose you are juicing for. Juicing includes fruits and vegetables (emphasis on the word vegetables). It is best to juice with organic produce, as residual pesticides can be harmful to your health. The produce needs to be washed and chopped before you juice it. You need to be knowledgable about produce because not all parts of all plants are safe to eat (i.e., rhubarb leaves/ apricot pits). In order to get the most important benefits from juicing (enzymes); you will need fresh produce, which has not been cooked or frozen. You may need protein supplementation or supplementation with specific vitamins or minerals depending on your juicing plan. I am sure that you have figured out from what I have already said, that a juicing plan for weight loss is more complex than finding out how much juice to drink per day. I recommend that you do not engage in a juice fast or a juice weight loss regiment until it has been planned out. Many of the major medical centers, now have alternative/ complementary medicine clinics with providers who may have expertise in juicing. Juicing can be remarkably beneficial but if this doesn't sound like something you are interested in, you might consider having your doctor refer you to a nutritionist. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not coffee itself: Caffeine actually has been in the news quite a bit as of late because of some benefitial health benefits such as reducing diabetes, liver cancer, and parkinson's disease etc...It also has high antioxidant content and thus may have other health benefits. Unfiltered coffe may raise cholesterol a bit, but not filtered one. It is the condiments we add to coffee that have negative effects. Good luck. ...Read more
