Can You Have Mustard On H Cg Diet
I have gout and trying to eat more plant based diet. Question: do black beans and soy products have a neg impact on gout?
No & no: The easy answer is that there's no evidence that soy is bad for gout. Check out http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21859653. Data behind beans varies due to different kinds of beans. Check out http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/kind-beans-good-low-purine-diet-10856.html & http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=2. Regardless, worse beans are still better than animal products. ...Read more

Can you let me know how many grams of fat should I have on Atkins diet and when will i start seeing results?
I went on a low FODMaP diet and eat basically no fruit now. Would that be considered healthy, or should I think about adding a vitamin to my diet to capture some of the nutrients that I might miss?
I have to have my gallblader removed, how different will my digestion be, and diet have to be once it is gone? I eat lots of nuts, seeds, fruit, salad
See answer: If healthy, no major change, other than the GB helps digest fats by secreting bile acids, so some people may have to decrease fatty meals, but most people have no issues at all. The foods you mention would all be fine to eat and would not cause any issues when your GB was removed. I had my GB removed due to Stones years ago, and I did not have to change my diet at all. Best wishes. ...Read more
I mean if i follow a diet to lose weight about 1200 calorie should i put oil in ny food or can i replace it by fruit?
Be aware: That a 1200 cal/day diet is a rather restricted caloric intake. It will help you lose weight but isn't a sustainable diet. It also may predispose you to micronutrient deficiency(think minerals and vitamins), so consider a supplement for this. Fruit are fine, but don't forget the veggies. Just be aware, oils can be great but they are calorically dense, so be mindful of how much use are using. ...Read more
Yes: If you're being treated for "high cholesterol", diet can be helpful. If you love cholesterol-rich eggs, it's still you choice. About 90% of what you read online, and some advice you may get from physicians, is sub-scientific. Staying physically fit is at least as important as food choices to managing cholesterol and coronary risk. If you truly need medication, don't hesitate. Best wishes. ...Read more
Of course .....: ...if it fits in your calorie allotment! I presume you are talking about a diet designed for weight loss. As long as you eat a reasonable portion and you still have room for fruits and vegetables that you need for good nutrition, you can assign a few (300-400) calories to meatloaf and cornbread, at least once in a while! Do make sure you know your daily calorie allowance for weight loss:) ...Read more

If I have Diarrhea will I not get the calories, nutrients, or protein from the stuff I eat earlier?
See below: The stuff you ate more than 6-8 hours before diarrhea would have been digested and absorbed and will provide the nutrition you are questioning. 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
Apples seem to be: a relatively low acid fruit and should be fine to eat if you have reflux. Higher acid fruits include fruits from the citrus family: oranges, lemons, grapefruit. Also cranberries.

Moderation : Excess protein actually can inhibit your production and secretion of testosterone. Also testosterone is made from cholesterol. So i would not recommend a "high protein", "low fat" diet. Depending on your weight and activity level, i would recommend 6-8 ounces of protein (and fat) in the form of meat or fish or eggs or cheese or poultry 3 times each day. Keep your carbs fairly low. ...Read more

You undo your diet efforts and often get frustrated that the diet is not working when you do not loose the weight due to the calories from the coke or sugared beverages. ...Read more
Its probably safe: It will raise testosterone levels in men. The HCG diet has had side effects, but those are due to rapid weight loss (gall stones) and eating only 500 calories per day, starvation is not a great plan. I doubt the HCG itself causes many or any problems if used in low doses. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: The HCG diet was originally developed by a.T.W. Simeons M.D. During the 1940's -1950's. It has been used all over the world for over 50 years. This method is extremely safe & effective when used under the care of an experienced & trained md.

Insufficiency : The diet is really a starvation diet and can cause problems with heart and other organs because you aren't getting enough nutrition and can see consequences from starvation. Do not recommend as not worth weight loss. Add exercise if you want to burn more calories than you are taking in. Not worth harming your body ...Read more
It could: Hcg is a hormone normally found in high levels during pregnancy. Injections of this hormone, when not pregnant, can throw a wrench into the normal hormonal functioning and interfere with fertility. Furthermore, the diet works as a starvation diet, and that's not healthy and is potentially extremely dangerous. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes but...: Hcg is not likely going to cause any harm but weight loss is due to the severe caloric restriction. In men with low testosterone and normal testes, it may work better because the HCG will increase the testosterone level. In women, HCG may increase progesterone. Higher Progesterone may lead to less anxiety and therefore less eating. Overall, smart eating plus increased activity is a better choice. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: You must follow the diet originally created by dr. Simeon. If you are getting hungry than you are not on real HCG or the proper dose. The only way to do this diet is under supervision of a qualified physician and strict adherence to the original 500 calorie diet. When done the right way, you will not be hungry. The wrong nuts have high fat content which is counter to the diet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Likely minimal: The drops which are sold at health food stores are probably a scam with no real active ingredients capable of being absorbed orally. The injections use a tiny dose compared to what is used by specialists to help couples conceive, and is dwarfed by the amount the pregnancy will soon produce. There are no studies, but i suspect the effects would be negligible. If you conceive, the diet is over! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Drops worthless: Drops are worthless. You need a qualified physician to administer correctly the injection HCG and the original 500 calorie diet with strict adherence. The diet only works on abnormal fat and once you rid yourself of abnormal fat you will not lose any more weight on the HCG diet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
