What food should I start feeding my 6 monthes baby girl?? Can I add for her food some salt and sugar?

What food should I start feeding my 6 monthes baby girl?? Can I add for her food some salt and sugar?

Solid food: You can start cereal, first. Rice, oat or barley. After this, fruits and vegetables. Some say veg before fruit, but it really doesn't matter. One new food every 3-5 days, to make sure baby doesn't have any reactions. Baby needs to be able to hold head up, and open her mouth when food is offered. No added sugar or salt, please. She will get it soon enough, without adding to food, now. ...Read more

My baby's body is producing to much salt and sugar, is there a lot of difference between similac advance and total comfort ?

No: You can't really eat some other food to decrease the affect of another. If you eat a diet high in fat sodium and sugar and eat a lot of vegetables and fruit and whole grains on top of that you might be healthier because you are avoiding vitamin deficiencies but you don't neutralize the effects of the bad foods. ...Read more

What are the ways that people convince a mobidly obese person to stop eating high sugar high fat high sodium foods?

What are the ways that people convince a mobidly obese person to stop eating high sugar high fat high sodium foods?

Convincing or maybe: The person is convinced but just can't seem to do it. That's more likely. Why that is so is still not clear. Even in some folks who do stick to a low sugar, low fat and low sodium diet don't lose weight. That is in part because they don't reduce total calories to a point where they lose weight. Probably most important of all is getting enough exercise so metabolism can accelerate & so lose weight. ...Read more

Healthy Diet!: Google 'food pyramid' and 'DASH' to learn about healthy diets. Generally, try to eat more proteins and less carbohydrates & fats while maintaining portion control and remaining physically active. Salad dressings can convert a healthy food into an item loaded with fat & salt, so always ask for the dressing on the side and dip your fork in it, rather than drowning the salad with it. ...Read more

Hi when I set up coffee machines i sometimes sip/taste 30 cups of coffee in a short time. Could this damage my kidneys? I eat as little as possible salt n sugar. Exercise regularly. Low processed foods so none to little sodium.

Hi when I set up coffee machines i sometimes sip/taste 30 cups of coffee in a short time. Could this damage my kidneys? I eat as little as possible salt n sugar. Exercise regularly.  Low processed foods so none to little sodium.

Taste and spit: I trust that you do not drink 30 cups of coffee, just taste the coffee from 30 different cups. Taking up to 4 cups of coffee/day will not do harm and may be good for you.
It is good that you exercise.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I have a 8 month old daughter. I started solid food(homemade) 2 months back. Should i add salt to her food? People say I should not add salt to babies food as the amount of sodium babies need is already there in the formula. She is on similac and the sod

I have a 8 month old daughter. I started solid food(homemade) 2 months back. Should i add  salt to her food? People say I should not add salt to babies food as the amount of sodium babies need is already there in the formula. She is on similac and the sod

It's true!: No need to add additional salt to infant foods. She is getting her salt requirements through formula and baby food. Adding salt will only cause her to acquire a taste for it, which in the long run is unhealthy. Additionally, excess salt at this age could cause electrolyte imbalances in her small body, which can have serious consequences. ...Read more

Short teenage girl 104 lbs, just told by director to lose as much weight as possible in next month. asian american, cravings salt+sugar. Please help. ?

Short teenage girl 104 lbs, just told by director to lose as much weight as possible in next month. asian american, cravings salt+sugar. Please help. ?

104 lb sounds ok: We don't tell 104 lb teen girls to lose weight unless there is a very special reason. For an average-height girl, all the way down to a short girl of 4' 10" or 4' 11", 104 lb is a normal weight. For short girls just under 5 feet tall, 95-105 lb should be fine. Also, if a girl is still growing taller, she can keep her current weight steady and just grow into her weight (instead of losing weight). ...Read more

Can extremely high sugar level in a male lead to (down syndrome) in his offspring. We are so scared of making babies.

No: Males get a bit of a pass on the ds issue.You make millions of sperm that are constantly renewed and only the healthiest sperm swim well enough to conceive.Any weak ones wouldn't do the deed. Women present only one egg at a time and those show the accumulated effect of toxins an the like. You may benefit from talking with a genetic counselor to explore any risk issues. ...Read more
