When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

I am a teen, and I weight 220lbs I want to start go jogging every day. Can I drink protein shakes in the same time? Does it help me lose weight?
Protein shakes: Protein shakes as a supplement to your diet will add protein and calories, so you should gain weight. Gaining weight and thickness though depends upon calories consumed versus calories burned. And you wish to gain muscle more than fat, so exercise wisely and avoid saturated fats in your diet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is too much protein bad for your health? I drink protein shakes and i don't know whether too much is bad for my health.
Debatable: Too much protein can have adverse effects but it varies per person. There is controversy whether kidney damage may occur with excessive protein. One question to ask is whether large amounts of protein are necessary- the answer is typically "no." most active athletes need in the range of 0.6-1 gram/pound. So, if you weigh 200 pounds, then 120-200 grams is plenty. More than that serves no purpose. ...Read more

When I was about 2 I had a kidney stone due to calcium. I'm 17 now so if I drink protein shakes with 480mg of calcium, can I get one again?
Electrolyte status?: It is important to know more about why the original stone happened. Is there a metabolic error in how your calcium gets excreted in the urine, or concentrated in the bloodstream? Are there other concerns (i.e. renal disease, hyperparathyroidism) that affect your calcium balance? I would avoid any excess/supplemental calcium for now in favor of a regular balanced diet and more data from past PCPs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Im a vegetarian and everytime i drink protein shakes, eat peanut butter or fruit i get shaky and light headed. What causes that?
Blood sugar/allergy: This is unusual. If these symptoms occur a couple hours after eating fruit it could be due to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) but that would be unlikely after protein/fats.You may be allergic/sensitive to these foods (or at least one of the ingredients in the shake).If you are allergic to these foods it may be related to imbalances of intestinal flora. I advise seeing a holistic doctor.See comment:. ...Read more
Not all of them!: That is a vast generalization. Certainly some vegans drink protein shakes but many don't. There are plentiful sources of protein in a vegan diet- nuts, seeds & beans are the best sources, but even foods like kale, broccoli, avocados, potatoes & quinoa contain surprising amounts of protein, it's really not that difficult to get plenty of protein on a vegan diet! ...Read more
