Are corn chips just as fattening as potato chips? The ingredients i see are corn, corn oil, and salt.
About the same but..: Neither corn or potato chips are very healthy. What makes a food fattening is the amount of starches ; unhealthy fats. Both potatoes ; corn are starchy. Corn ; other vegetable oils become toxic when heated to high temperatures. If corn chips aren't organic they prob. Have gmo corn which is esp. Harmful. Potatoes have high pesticides if not organic.

6 months old baby started eating organic made baby food. Now is constipated.she's had sweet potatoes, banana, Apple's, peas, squash, zucchini. ?
Why the rush: Solids in the first year do not help the baby grow better.Breast milk is an adequate nutrition source, and solids today are primarily a training process to transition them to the table. Apples and bananas are constipating agents. Prunes & pears loosen stools. I'd quit the rush through the list of foods and just keep it simple. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it better to use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin? Canned pumpkin pie mix or just plain canned pumpkin?
Fresh but celebrate!: I believe in fresh fruits&veggies/shopping in the periphery of the store. However, if you have a family recipe or something that you use once per year and it's canned pie mix, go for it! Generally speaking - fresh/single ingredients are better than mixtures/processed foods since you know more about what you're mixing with the single ingredients. We can definitely discuss more about sugars, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Are apples, cherry tomatoes, peaches, light yogurts, avocados, carrots, and watermelon good for diabetics?
Diabetes and Food: I think the simple answer is no. But, when you look at these specific items in your list there are things that are lower in carbohydrates like the yogurt and the avocado. But, in each person with diabetes, the answer may vary based upon how well controlled their blood sugars are. The goal is to eat more protein and less carbohydrates. That means less sugars, less fruits and less carbs overall. ...Read more

Food allergy: If you ate the squash and had an immediate reaction (minutes to 2hrs) that included hives, swelling, shortness of breath, wheeze, throat tightness, vomiting or passing out then I would be concerned for a food allergy reaction. Would make an appointment with an allergist to determine what could be the culprit foods. Bring list of ingredients eaten that meal to appointment. Avoid foods until seen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Excellent idea: more vegetables and less red meat and less beer. The "gout diet" has fallen a bit out of favor because many patients just want a pill to fix the gout. However, I think examining diet is an excellent idea. Look at a reputable site such as www.webmd.com/arthritis/living-with-chronic-gout-11/slideshow-gout-diet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I tested positive to turkey, potato, sweet potato, rice, rye, pecans, crab, shrimp. Allergist eliminated wheat and corn to feel better. Correlation?
Test v reaction: The presence of a positive skin test to food only means sensitization and not necessarily causing an allergic reaction to that food. The larger the size of the ST,, the more likely a reaction would occur. If you feel better with elimination of corn and wheat, you should avoid them. A double-blind food challenge may be in order. Were ST to wheat & corn strongly positive? ...Read more
