Is bread good for lunch when you are in diet?

Is bread good for lunch when you are in diet?

Bread is fine.: Bread is fine, but it really should be whole grain, not white or even whole wheat. Whole grain bread has a good fiber content, allowing you fill up with fewer calories and stave off hunger longer. What you put in your sandwich is also important - lean proteins, raw vegetables. ...Read more

What are the effects of an unbalanced diet on young children (for example, eating just pbj on bread)?

What are the effects of an unbalanced diet on young children (for example, eating just pbj on bread)?

Unbalanced diet: Pbj especially with whole grain bread may not necessarily make an unbalanced diet. It is rich in energy, provides the desired type of fat, is rich in protein and is a good source of fiber. A child who does not eat fruits and vegetables may need supplemental vitamins. Drinking milk will provide calcium and additional calories. Don't worry - this might just be a transient phase. ...Read more

I started going to a diet dr. And the diet she reccomended doesn't allow me any dairy, bread, fruits, starches of any kind. Is this healthy?

I started going to a diet dr. And the diet she reccomended doesn't allow me any dairy, bread, fruits, starches of any kind. Is this healthy?

Eat balanced diet: Restriction diets that limit lots of different "good" foods may work in the short term, but such diets are not meant to be followed for a long time. A simple rule of thumb is to cut back on calories by eating smaller meals and avoiding snacks. Exercise to tone, and to burn calories. Keep in mind that fat=9 calories/gram whereas proteins and carbohydrates =4 calories/gram of food. Eat healthy! ...Read more

How can I remove bread from my diet?

Take it away: Just stop eating it. There are so many alternatives such as sweet potatoes, whole grain rice, etc. Many of the breads are low in nutrients, some of which are then put back in the breads. I applaud you to remove bread and replace it with healthier choices. ...Read more

If i'm trying to diet should I not eat any type of bread?

If i'm trying to diet should I not eat any type of bread?

Best to minimize but: Bread can contribute to weight gain by raising blood sugar causing increased insulin. Wheat also seems to stimulate appetite. It would be ok to have some whole grain wheat-free breads in great moderation.

Is an all fruits and vegetable diet healthy or do you need bread, eggs, etc?

Is an all fruits and vegetable diet healthy or do you need bread, eggs, etc?

You need variety...: Fresh fruits and veggies are good in general because they provide some good vitamins/nutrition, but as human we cannot digest cellulose--the main component in veggies/fruits, which the cows/horse can. They can turn grass/hays into proteins/meats, we cannot. A variety of food types is recommended--see the pyramid for example. Consult your doc/nutritionist. Live well, melani6. Good luck. ...Read more

When can I eat ezekiel bread on the candida diet?

When can I eat ezekiel bread on the candida diet?

In late stages: There's no consensus on the optimal candida diet but the most important thing to avoid are sugars & simple carbs. Most experts advise avoiding all grains initially, but as one improves moderate non-gluten grains like quinoa can be used. It's best to avoid gluten (which ezekiel bread has) but towards the end can try some. See http://www.Holisticmd.Org/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/candidadiet.Pdf. ...Read more

Can you tell me when dieting and walking and some running would it be best to have no bread in my diet?

Can you tell me when dieting and walking and some running would it be best to have no bread in my diet?

Carbs in general: can make losing weight difficult. They are rapidly broken down into complex sugars that turn into fat in your body. Bread is just one example of a carbohydrate. Decreasing them could certainly help you lose weight; find a balanced healthy diet (1200 kcal/day is recommended for dieting) for sustainable weight loss and lifestyle changes. Lean proteins are a great way to eat healthier. ...Read more

I am 22 and literally all i eat is bread soda and snacks. I need help getting on a healthy diet. But im only 143 pounds. Help?

Need protein and...: I'm not sure what type of snacks but your diet is almost certainly very deficient in protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins ; minerals. Your low weight will likely increase with proper nutrition.Stop the soda right now- it's one of the least healthy things to consume.Avoid snacks that are fried (like chips)- try nuts instead.See http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht ; http://bit.Ly/19xax7e for more suggestions. ...Read more

3 months ago I started gym and diet (no sugar,fats,white bread) I was 100 kg and now 86.8kg
Is that too much?
Is there anything to worry about?

That's about 30 -: -pounds/month. Is a little much. But if U get proper nutrition & rest it is OK. But U should have a target weight that U want & then slow down as U approach it. Then figure out what U need 2 do 2 stay there. Also if U R doing weigh training, B sure U R not going so fast that U lose muscle. Exchanging muscle 4 fat, U should not lose so fast. Muscle is heavier than fat. ...Read more

Eating only 2 wholemeal bread, 1 small pack of jacob's, 3 ordinary biscuit & 4 digestive biscuit for whole day. is it healthy? my friend is on diet.

NOT healthy at all!: I have no idea what jacob's is but everything else your eating is bread/ starches. The healthiest diet (for both weight loss and good health) is to eat mostly vegetables & fruits with healthy protein and to minimize starch. You don't seem to be eating any veggies/fruit & eating mostly starch, the opposite of a healthy diet! My favorite diet is Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritarian- see http://bit.ly/1dHW9hT ...Read more

On a low carb diet, is whole grain crackers better than eating bread?

On a low carb diet, is whole grain crackers better than eating bread?

It depends: Whichever one has the least amount of carbs is probably best; if you choose bread then choose whole grain bread. Consider whole grain crackers that also have seeds as those will be lower in carbs (such as mary's gone crackers). In following a low carb diet you don't need to completely avoid grains but keep the amount of grains relatively low; whole gluten-free grains are relatively healthy. ...Read more

Why do people who are on a restricted calorie diet sometimes refrain from eating bread and rice?

Why do people who are on a restricted calorie diet sometimes refrain from eating bread and  rice?

Doesn't fill you up: If you are on a restricted calorie diet, other foods will help you feel full with a lot less calories. Bread and rice offer a lot of calories which convert quickly to sugar in the body. Then you are hungry again. Whole fresh fruit and vegetables offer a lot more nutritional value and are more slowly digested. ...Read more

Is all natural peanut butter (just peanuts) bad for you? I eat about a quarter of a jar a day in my diet. With sprouted grain bread and fruits.

Depends: If the amount of peanut butter you eat is part of an overall balance in your diet, then it is a good source of proper oils and protein. Be mindful that some peanut butters are adulterated with oils from other sources so read the labels carefully. The addition of sprouted grain bread and fruits can help achieve balance and is a good dietary practice. ...Read more

Hi,

Thanks?

Treat the cause: While most doctors believe reflux is caused by excess acid and treat it with acid-blocking drugs, it is often caused by low stomach acid! See

I'm on a high protein diet, is it okay to eat small portions of bread?

I'm on a high protein diet, is it okay to eat small portions of bread?

No and no: generally this is for weight loss. The diet works either by making people so miserable that they don't eat, or loss of some muscle glycogen, or changing the cues for eating. All of these will be messed up by even small amounts of bread. Furthermore, the whole question implies trying to get out of eating less and exercising more and how to bail out on dieting. ...Read more

What to do if I have recently began a high protein diet. I am not overly strict but was wondering if my diet could include bread at any point?

Bread: In general, moderation goes a long way. (i know, the term "moderation" is so overused and hard to define. Still...). A high-protein diet combined with a small portions of bread can be a useful approach to managing weight. You might consider using breads that are lower in glycemic load, such as sprouted wheat (or "flourless") breads (available at trader joe's or ezekiel brand). ...Read more
