No: Peanut butter is a good source of protein. You have to pay attention to how much of it you eat. It is very calorically dense-- a small amount is high in calories. Eat lots of vegetables. They will fill you up. ...Read more

This plan is : Likely to backfire on you. The caloric intake is way too low. Your body will go into starvation mode and your metabolic rate will drop. Additionally, this is not a balanced diet. Eat healthfully ; be physically active. Aim for 7.5 to 8 hrs of sleep / night. Hydrate w at least 64 oz of water / day. Calories burned must > calories consumed. Do both cardio ; weight training. ...Read more

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more

Limit peanut butter: Nuts are a healthy part any diet, but peanuts are not strictly a nut. An eight year harvard study showed that the women who ate the most nuts gained the least weight. It turns out that one does not absorb all the fat in raw nuts because it is tied up in the fiber. However when turned into a butter, you absorb more fat. So eat nuts, but focus on raw almonds & walnuts, not peanuts and peanut butter. ...Read more

What kind of specialist should I get for soy, peanut & histamine diet so I won't get an allergic reaction and lose weight.

What kind of specialist should I get for soy, peanut & histamine diet so I won't get an allergic reaction and lose weight.

A dietitian, not a: physician, most likely. Histamine= a hormone made internally (not in food) & induces itching & capillary dilatation/redness; i.e. allergic response. Also, what people have "allergic responses" to on their skin, vs. their mouth, vs. their pharynx, versus in blood, etc, vary quite widely with no clear correlation with one another. Yet people routinely assume that skin tests are a "Gold Standard" ...Read more
