Is it ok to eat that raisin bran crunch cereal if I have diverticulitis, it has oat clusters and regular oats in it as well.

Is it ok to eat that raisin bran crunch cereal if I have diverticulitis, it has oat clusters and regular oats in it as well.

It is fine: I don't think any foods cause diverticulitis. There is no evidence that seeds, nuts, etc can cause diverticulitis. By the time that stuff gets to your colon it is all the same consistency, so I tell my patients not to limit their diet if they have diverticulosis. ...Read more

I just had a stomach virus for almost a week, but now my stomach is still hurting except im constipated. What do I do? Is raisin bran cereal ok to eat?

I just had a stomach virus for almost a week, but now my stomach is still hurting except im constipated. What do I do? Is raisin bran cereal ok to eat?

Recovery phase: Most likely you are recovery from loss of a lot of important fluids and electrolytes in your system, if you had a stomach virus.
You need to increase fluids and make sure to get potassium and magnesium, which are lost with diarrhea and vomiting. Coconut water is a good source of fluids and electrolytes. If you don't start to feel better, call your doctor. Would avoid the bran until you drink more. ...Read more

Is cereal healthy or whole grain bread?

Is cereal healthy or whole grain bread?

Eat 2 Beat CA, Pt.12: WHOLE GRAINS: For years, we've been urging our patients to eat three to five servings of whole grains a day. There's good reason: they are linked to a lower risk of colorectal cancer, as a 2013 Danish study of 108, 000 people has found. What's more, whole grains offer protection against other chronic conditions, including heart disease & type 2 diabetes. (Ref: AARP, 5/2014) ...Read more

Good substitute for grain? As grains are inflammatory and not all that useful minus fiber. Or is a little bit of grain still good? (cereal/toast)

Good substitute for grain? As grains are inflammatory and not all that useful minus fiber. Or is a little bit of grain still good? (cereal/toast)

Good question: The grain, e.g. Rice is just starch. Mother nature surrounded the grain with a cusp that contains the vitamins to metabolize the starch. That is why whole grain bread is nutritious while white bread provides only calories. In my view, even vitamin enrichment of white bread is not sufficient to meet demand. ...Read more

Are 100% whole grain cereals and peanuts good for us? If they are, why do they have more calories than than non whole grain cereal and chips?

Are 100% whole grain cereals and peanuts good for us? If they are, why do they have more calories than than non whole grain cereal and chips?

THEY ARE GOOD BUT: It is not true that whole grain cereals are more in calories than non whole grain cereals. Actually for oz for oz whole grain have less calories than refined grains as it contains fibers which do not have any calories
peanuts on the other hand are good for you as all tree nuts are but these are high in calories and better be limited in quantity but as snacks they are better than chips. ...Read more

Looking for dietitian advice does protein cereal really curb hunger on diet? Given the ingredients such high protein, fiber and whole grains.

Looking for dietitian advice does protein cereal really curb hunger on diet? Given the ingredients such high protein, fiber and whole grains.

Curb appetite.: Complex carbohydrates, fiber and proteins do curb the appetite by slowing the absorption of foodstuffs from the stomach, essentially. The longer food remains in the stomach, the longer it will take you to get hungry for the next meal. ...Read more

I started my newborn on single grain Gerber rice cereal 1x a day for 2 days now. She usually poops everyday once a day and she hasn't yet. What to do?

I started my newborn on single grain Gerber rice cereal 1x a day for 2 days now. She usually poops everyday once a day and she hasn't yet. What to do?

Plugged up: I use cereals to plug up a kid naturally after they develop diarrhea. Infants don't need cereals until 6 months, so I'm curious why a newborn would get them. That was the method 50 years ago but not today. Any time you alter babies diet it can effect their stool pattern. ...Read more

Can I skip rice cereal/oatmeal/whole grains for my 6 month old and go straight to veggies & fruits?

Can I skip rice cereal/oatmeal/whole grains for my 6 month old and go straight to veggies & fruits?

Yes: The common recommendation is to start with cereals, specifically rice cereal. That said, there is no reason to require that as the first step. You could start with a vegetable, preferably yellow/orange type, or with a fruit. But include the cereals in the advancement of the diet, don't skip them altogether. By 6 months, the baby should get 2 servings daily of each, cereal, fruit, vegetable. ...Read more

Is this a healthy breakfast whole grain whole wheat cereal with vitamin d or almond milk with two eggs and a banana other days I eat a pbnj w/ banana?

Is this a healthy breakfast whole grain whole wheat cereal with vitamin d or almond milk with two eggs and a banana other days I eat a pbnj w/ banana?

HiCarb ↑esObesity DM: CVDs & Cancer. This breakfast is high in carbohydrates (sugars); the grains are no longer whole, (have been ground into flour which dramatically ↑es their glycemic index); bananas are a high glycemic index fruit. The eggs are fine yet everything you describe is low fiber content;? a relevant issue given stated history. All foods are marketed as healthy (though not reality) because this ↑es sales. ...Read more

That's: That's a high sugar but sugar tends to shoot up within 1-2 hours after lots of carbs like cereal. It may take some weeks for the full effect of metformin. You may need additional treatment along with the metformin. I suggest you see a certified diabetes educator and dietitian for further guidance. Test your sugar at varying times before and 2 hours after meals and bring in this record book to your visits. Your hemoglobin a1c is a good test of average sugar over the past 2-3 months. See the link below for more information. ...Read more
