What's the difference of overeating sugary/fatty foods and overeating healthy foods with same amoutn of calories?

Metabolism: Not all calories are created equal. The body metabolizes high sugar foods, including alcohol, very quickly into fat if these calories are not needed to sustain physical exercise. Most of us do not burn the amount of calories we eat. Unless we are in control of our eating. Do replace your junk food with healthy foods with the same # of calories. See for yourself. I bet you will lose some lbs. ...Read more

Sensitive tooth.Would like to eliminate it by taking proper care of tooth instead of medicines.My eating habits are culprits?I eat lot of sweets.

That's great: It's great that you want to take good care of your teeth. If you eat a lot of sweets & have sensitive teeth, you may have cavities. Step one would be to see your dentist for a thorough exam & x-rays to start off on the right track and make sure all your teeth & gums are healthy. I love sweets too but have to limit the amount & type, along with proper brushing & flossing to maintain a healthy mouth. ...Read more

Does eating fruit after meals cause bloating as the non acidic fruit ferments on top of your meal?

Does eating fruit after meals cause bloating as the non acidic fruit ferments on top of your meal?

No.: Fruit, like all food, gets broken down by digestive enzymes, and the nutrients are absorbed. Some of the sugars such as sorbitol and fructose are not well digested by humans, and some soluble fruit fibers also. These work as natural laxatives and are good for us. Excess of anything is not good, and too much fruit or fruit fiber could cause gas. Eat fruit in moderation and enjoy! ...Read more

Eat 7 portions of fruit daily, plenty of vegetables, eat pretty healthy and exercise intense 4 to 5 days a week, could get diabtes because of glucose?

Eat 7 portions of fruit daily, plenty of vegetables, eat pretty healthy and exercise intense 4 to 5 days a week, could get diabtes because of glucose?

Unlikely but...: While fruit contains sugars as glucose and fructose, the fiber in fruit reduces its effects on raising blood sugar. In the context of an otherwise healthy diet and exercise you probably won't get diabetes, though it would be wise to consume mostly lower-glycemic fruits like berries, cherries, apples and citrus while minimizing melons and tropical fruits that tend to have a higher glycemic index. ...Read more
