I want to gain weight since I am very thin. What should I eat to get proteins? I am vegetarian. Thanks in advance!

Nuts, eggs, cheese..: The best protein sources for vegetarians are nuts & seeds, eggs & cheese. Beans are good too but you'll gain weight easier with the others due to their fats. I advise the eggs & cheese be organic to avoid their being from animals fed gmo corn & soy. Avocados are also a good food for weight gain and potatoes may help too. ...Read more

I am a pure vegetarian and wanted to know which fruits and vegetables I can eat to increase hemoglobin content in my body?

I am a pure vegetarian and wanted to know which fruits and vegetables I can eat to increase hemoglobin content in my body?

It depends...: This depends on whether you are deficient in iron, B12 or folate (folic acid); if so, then increasing your levels will increase hemoglobin; if not then it won't make a difference. There are no good vegetable sources of b12- you need to supplement with it. For good sources of iron see http://www. Vrg. Org/nutrition/iron. Php for folate (folic acid) sources see http://www.

I have irregular eating patterns and do not like to eat. Also my blood count is very low. What can I do to increase my blood count (i am a vegetarian)?

I have irregular eating patterns and do not like to eat. Also my blood count is very low. What can I do to increase my blood count (i am a vegetarian)?

Forgive my frankness: You're only sixteen. This is your growth spurt. Despite what you may have read in vegetarian literature, it's basically impossible for you to get adequate nutrients, beginning with iron. You are going to need to supplement. If you do not like to eat, I'm worried. If the veggie diet simply doesn't appeal to you, reconsider your decision -- it's a moral choice rather than a health-promoting one. ...Read more

I am a vegetarian and only eat whole grain foods but have been told today I am prediabetic. Is there any thing else I can do to keep from being diabe?

Eggs and cheese: You must reduce your carbohydrate intake. Eat plenty of chesse and eggs at every meal (or stop being a vegetarian and eat meats) and strictly reduce your carbs. Otherwise you will definitely continue to develop diabetes. I have helped many patients reduce their chances of getting diabetes by putting them on low carb diets. www. Mdwellnessmd.

Energy balance neede: You can lose weight but you need to learn about the Energy level (Calories) in foods that you consume.

My bro is 17 yrs old turns18 within 8 mons he is 5'8.Plz suggest him what to eat to grow height. He is vegetarian, how much milkeggs must he take daily?

Unlikely to help: You are most likely to reach your tallest potential height by following a healthy diet, getting appropriate sleep & and remaining physically active. Nothing you eat or drink will add inches. You can stunt your growth by the opposite, poor diet/sleep/inactivity can all take a toll. If the growth centers in his bones are open he may grow taller, but at 17 they may be closing, with growth ending. ...Read more

Is it ok to eat sushi in the first trimester?

Sushi & pregnanc: Sushi should be avoided during pregnancy for two reasons. (1) risk of bacterial infection complicating the pregnancy. (2) risk of exposure to mercury complicating the pregnancy.
