Apart from healthy eating,to gain more nutrition-good idea to make hot chocolate with nutritionally rich cocoa powder,vanilla extract & stevia daily?

Sounds good: So good, in fact, that if this is what you want to drink, drink it and don't even worry whether this is our idea of a perfect ideal beverage choice. 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

Are Mung bean noodles a healthy source of carbohydrates?

Are Mung bean noodles a healthy source of carbohydrates?

Yes for Carbohydrate: They’re different from more traditional egg noodles or pasta because they’re made from mung bean starch. That they contain bean starch is a good clue that they are excellent sources of carbohydrates. The downside to glass noodles is that they’re not rich in nutrients. If you prepare 54 grams of dehydrated noodles, you’ll get about 6 percent of the daily value of iron, selenium and niacin ...Read more

Eat 5 banana, 1orange , 1 apple. 2cup green tea and 2 cup of nescafe(coffee). Is it healthy?

No: Where is your protein? This is mostly an all sugar albeit natural sugar diet. You need a more balanced diet with protien and whole grains. This is not a healthy breakfast or diet. And tea AND coffee? I'd stick with just the green tea myself. ...Read more

Thinking about trying a dietary supplement.   Thoughts on slimquick pure caffeine free...

Looks reasonable but: I'm fairly impressed with the active ingredients. My only concern is some of the toxic ingredients like titanium dioxide ; acesulfame potassium in the coating ; it probably has gmo-derived corn ; soy but these are in trace amounts so it probably is ok to try. But if your main concern is weight loss also consider http://bit.Ly/178bmuf. Supplements may help but diet is crucial: http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht. ...Read more

Is monk fruit extract (monk fruit in the raw) a healthy sweetener to add to my coffee?

Recommendations, on adding nuts & seeds to the diet while still encouraging weight loss? Would like to supplement w/ fruit, veggie, almond smoothies.

Recommendations, on adding nuts & seeds to the diet while still encouraging weight loss? Would like to supplement w/ fruit, veggie, almond smoothies.

1 ounce/day: Nuts and seeds are great to add to a weight loss plan. Realize that one ounce of nuts is 200 calories. One ounce of nuts a day is all you need for protein, unsaturated fat. Take into account the calories from the nuts and seeds when you do eat them. They are healthy foods and should be a part of everyones plan. ...Read more

What are your opinions on green coffee bean extract and raspberry ketones for weight loss?

What are your opinions on green coffee bean extract and raspberry ketones for weight loss?

Fads: Weight loss aids are few and far between. A healthy diet (calories in) and exercise (calories out) are the best means of weight control. Our history is littered with thousands of "remedies" that have no scientific basis or factual success. Best of luck! ...Read more

Health benefits of blueberry muffins?

The blueberries.: The healthiest part of a blueberry muffin would be the blueberries therein. Muffins by definition are not healthy, and making a muffin with blueberries or bran or apples won't magically make the muffin a healthy food. Tasty, yes, but not healthy. ...Read more

What's the goodness of herbal tea ( mint, anis seeds, or vervain for example) sugar-free?

What's the goodness of herbal tea ( mint, anis seeds, or vervain for example) sugar-free?

For enjoyment: Regular teas and typical herbal teas, made from usual tea leaves, are for people to enjoy. The caffeine level is usually low, so teas are not too stimulating. A tea-drinker can try different teas and decide for herself what she likes most. Flavoring additives like mint or anise are in the teas in small amounts, so should not have a noticeable medicinal effect. Avoid adding too much sugar to tea. ...Read more

Does bottled lipton diet green tea citrus have a good source of antioxidants like i've read?

Does bottled lipton diet green tea citrus have a good source of antioxidants like i've read?

Probably not: Once the tea is mixed with water, the antioxidants start to break down. By the time the product gets from where it was first mixed to when you drink it could be weeks or months. The antioxidants are not likely going to be viable for that length of time. Raw fruits and vegetables are probably your best bet. Some supplements like astaxanthin and curcumin may help. ...Read more

New chapter every man multivitamin made w/ organic vegies & herbs, effect the effectiveness of cialis?

Schizandra berry: Out of the ingredients in your vitamin, schizandra berry could potentially cause an interaction with cialis. There is mixed information about its effects on the liver system that metabolizes Cialis -- some sources say it inhibits this, and in other cases it may induce them. Because of this, i suggest caution in using this combination. There are other good vitamins without the herbal components. ...Read more

Does drinking coffee 1-2 cups (5-10) grams a day cause cancer? Are there any benefits of coffee? What's better green tea or coffee? Why? Or avoid both

See below: The amount of coffee or tea intake you described will not do any harm, it is also not likely to produce any great benefit either. Suit your taste. 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. ...Read more
