Wrong Diet: Your diet is consisting mostly of sugar or carbohydrates. It is the least healthy diet choice possible.

If I eat lettuce, raw carrots, steamed broccoli and beets, grated cheese and one piece of meat daily for breakfast lunch and dinner will I lose weighr?
Depends On A Lot: That all depends on your current weight, body fat to muscle ratio, amount you eat and total daily calories ingested, your activity level and overall basal metabolic rate. One thing for sure, you're on the right track in terms of WHAT you eat, although you didn't specify what KINDS of meat you eat or if you ever might eat some vegetable sources of protein. I think that just might cover it. ...Read more

I don't know, AND...: I don't know why you faint at the sight of blood when you have not had breakfast and do not faint when you have had breakfast, and it could have to do with being more susceptible to fainting due to relatively low blood sugar when breakfast has been missed.

Is it true we have a fat-saving mechanism that doesn't get turned off for the night until we eat breakfast in the morning?
Sort of true...: During the night you don't need as much energy and your metabolism slows down. Once you wake up, your metabolism speeds up again, but without a healthy breakfast to provide the nutrients and energy your body needs, your metabolism can't sustain a higher level for long. You burn more calories during the day and are less likely to gain weight. ...Read more

My 3yr old stopped eating as he normally did. He eats a couple bites of his breakfast he will eat a bit more at lunch but doesn't want dinner.
This is frustrating : But, very normal. If you look at a growth curve for a 3-year old, it really slows down through this period and is most nice able by the eating patterns you describe. If he is not eating a good mix of foods, a multivitamin might be helpful. Most kids do not need them as ensuring a wide variety of fruits, protein, vegetables in creative ways can help. ...Read more

I have I.I.H.--don't know if this is related or not--I made mac n cheese, had three bites and felt sick. If I see the leftovers, I get nauseas. Why??
Memory: This is a well-known phenomenon associated with food poisoning. Often just the thought or smell of the food that caused the food poisoning brings back such strong memories of the illness that those feelings come back (nausea, indigestion etc). I know people that can no longer go to certain restaurants because of the bad memory associated with it, and your memory of leftovers makes you queesy! ...Read more

I don't east breakfast or lunch because I don't have time, and when I get home to eat dinner I eat half a serving and become full but extremely guilty?
Eating disorder?: It sounds like eating is a big issue for you, and that you're controlling how much you eat/don't eat. The "extremely guilty" when you do eat is worrisome to me, because food is there to nourish us rather than torment us. Please see a psychiatrist or therapist skilled in eating disorders, so you can get help before this goes further. ...Read more
