Can I Drink Vodka On The H Cg Diet
refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more
After the hCG diet how do you keep the weight off ? Can you drink alcoholic beverages on the diet?
You can't!: The major problem with every diet (the hcg, adkins, south beach, etc) is that when you stop it, you always regain the weight when you go back to eating the way way you were before. That's why the diets advertise losing weight quickly but rarely show people who kept the weight off. Remember: alcohol contains calories which can cause weight gain like any other drink. Limit it as much as you can. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If i drink faster and on an empty stomach, i get buzzed on only 4-5 ounces of wine. So, less calories & blood sugar. What are the health consequences?
It depends: Health consequences depend on what you do when you're buzzed. Plus it sounds like you're drinking wind specifically for the buzz, which could be an addictive pattern. ...Read more
If coca cola zero has zero calories why can't i drink it a whole day? (besides effects of staining on teeth) thx in advance.
Phosphoric Acid!: Zero coke and other low calorie soft drinks don't contain sugars but do have phosphoric acid as an ingredient. This acid, especially with repeated sipping exposure to your tooth's surface, can demineralize (soften) the tooth's enamel making it more susceptible to decay. ...Read more
Will drinking beer the day before lipid/blood sugar test effect the test?Or will i be good as long as i avoid all food and drink for 12 hours?
Not advisable: It is highly unlikely that very occasional low-dose use of alcohol (like a small glass of champagne at a celebration) will do any harm, but why bother? I tell all my pregnant patients that they should avoid ANYTHING that isn't essential for their health during their pregnancy. If you are 46 years old, this is already a high risk pregnancy, and I would not chance it, since one can lead to two etc. ...Read more
What do I need to add or eliminate from my diet to pass a drug test? I received a negative dilute on the initial test. I am of slight build and a vegetarian. I exercise regularly and i drink at least 12 - 8oz glasses of water daily. I also drink 1 to tw
How about the drugs?: There is nothing you can add or subtract from diet to pass a drug test, except eliminating the drugs. You don't need all that water, and it will cause a dilute urine which will automatically flunk the drug test. This idea that we need lots of water is bogus; thirst is the best guide. We get all the water we need from our food (60% water), if your urine is dilute you are drinking too much. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How much alcohol consumption causes physical dependance and withdrawal? I drink beer on weekends but not through the week. Trying to be proactive
See below: It is good that you are being proactive about your health. The alcohol amount that each person can "handle" differs. Instead of using absolute amounts, it is better to focus on consequences - if alcohol use is creating adverse consequences for you or others are starting to point this out to you, it is too much and/or too frequent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I just binged on chocolate , but should I not eat the rest of the day to keep my calorie intake controlled?
If I drink 10oz tonic water right after taking a Zofran pill, will it ruin the effectiveness of the Zofran?
Zofran ODT : You should take the zofran orally disintegrating tablet place on the tongue and swallow with saliva. Tonic contains quinine which a lot of people don't know. Since quinine albeit infinitesimally small in tonic it can interact with ondansetron I suggest you avoid the combo. Stay calm and avoid tonic. ...Read more
Is drinking bottle gourd juice in the morning helpful for weight loss and should I drink it on an empty stomach .... thanks ?
Not sure why you are: drinking gourd juice? Filtered water by itself is just fine to drink in the AM, as the more water you can drink or hydrate during weight loss, the better. Don't overdo though! Don't drink more than 1/2 weight in oz, and still need to adjust to what your doctor says is safe! If you work out, you need more.U don't want to error on the side of drinking too much water as U can dilute UR electrolytes. ...Read more

What is the amount of water inned to drink daily, because i drink liters of water daily and now i heared about water intoxication , what is it and how should i control my water consumption?
WHY?: Why drink so much water? Water intoxication is real but rare. There is a silly urban legend about 8 glasses of water a day. Never made sense. Ignore it. Drink "liters"??? If this is OCD look for cognitive behavior therapy from a psychologist. If you have urinary stones, consult a nephrologist. ...Read more
