If you are healthy, just staying physically fit is much more important than obsessing over food choices. I would bet you know this already. Enjoy the chocolate. ...Read more

Limit these: Almost anything can be adjusted to fit within a balanced diet. The items you mention except the noodles are probably fatty and full of chemicals. In limited amounts they can be not exactly healthy but not dangerous either. Noodles can be a source of complex carbohydrates and they can be mixed in with many healthy menu choices. ...Read more

If you're just following a "pop" recommendation from the internet, you're on your own and you'll make your life more difficult -- but you may be right. Best wishes. ...Read more

45 yo male, exercise/nutrition fanatic. Finally getting more than a few gray hairs. Is there any nutritional or topical way to restore color?

45 yo male, exercise/nutrition fanatic. Finally getting more than a few gray hairs. Is there any nutritional or topical way to restore color?

Not yet!: Technically hair coloring is a topical solution but even as we begin to crack the secrets of cellular aging we've learned very little about loss of hair pigment . A better solution revolves around self image and how you truly appear to others. Don't underestimate the attraction to intelligent, strong, fit, wise, & distinguished appearing men. For many, lack of at least some grey is a deal breaker. ...Read more

Are some people predisposed genetically to like some flavors?  My husband is addicted to chipotle but it tastes bad to me...

Yes, to a degree: We do have some gustatory sense elements that are inherited - taste bud qualities and tongue locations, etc. But experience is also a big part of preferences as well as many other things like sense of smell. Much of that is genetic too, but it's a mix all around. You've got a good word - predisposed. Nice thinking! ...Read more

I heard spicy foods can help you lose weight?  Is that true, and if so does my chipotle addiction have health benefits?

Spicy: Spicy foods can indeed serve effectively as appetite suppressants. That being said, addiction/overdoing is never a good thing. Try seltzer water in addition to spicy foods. The water flushes you out, and the bubbles make you feel full. ...Read more

Chipotle: As far as fast food restaurants, chipotle is relatively healthy.

Which is better for a 3 year old picky eater a multivitamin or pedisure nutrition drink? On top of nutritional meals

Which is better for a 3 year old picky eater a multivitamin or pedisure nutrition drink?  On top of nutritional meals

Whole food vitamin : I like whole food vitamins that give you the equivalent of several servings of fruits and veggies. Good healthy foods should be presented with no ability to "place order" ( unless allergies ). Limit drinks as kids can fill up on milk and juice and not experience hunger. Make a healthy smoothie at home if needed. Find high calorie nutrient dense foods so do not need large quantity to be consumed. ...Read more

Can a person live on nutritional drinks such as ensure for few months while having jaw/teeth surgery? Want to make sure I am getting enough nutrition

Yes, but...: Unfortunately, the marketers neglect to warn the consumers about the huge risk to the patient's dental health. These products are loaded with sugar. In my elderly patients and those on mouth-drying meds, it is not uncommon to see new root cavities after routine use of these "nutritional supplements." moderation means variation--no one food/item is a panacea, and everything comes at with a risk. ...Read more
