Im an endomorph & im on a high protein diet, 1.5g of protein per pound of bodyweight, 100-150g of good carbs & minimum fats, is this a gd diet plan?

Depends, Prob. Not: If your goal is to build body fat, then yes, otherwise no. Carbs block burning fat, so which are "good". Protein also stimulates Insulin release, Insulin promotes fat storage & high protein can drive higher kidney failure rates, so high questionable. Fats, of natural origin, best evidence of being healthy for humans. Study: "big fat lies", "science for smart people", dietdoctor, lustig, taubes... ...Read more

As a result of graves' disease, i'm gaining weight, would going on a 800 a day calorie diet be safe?

Most people: With graves' disease, unless it is over treated and becomes hypothyroidism, will gain weight -- but some find their appetite stimulated to the point where they gain weight. 800 c/d is more restriction than most people need, unless you are very, very short and totally inactive. Check with a good registered dietitian. It is hard to get adequate nutrition into 800 cal. ...Read more

Is 16 oz. Of electrolyte fluid, and 112 oz. Of water in a day unhealthy? Diet instructions given by medi weight loss doctor

Depends on solution: The content of the "electrolyte fluid" is the key to answering the question. Your daily requirements for fluid losses are exceeded by this volume, but quite acceptable if you have normal kidney function. The fluid should contain at least the daily requirements for sodium and potassium, and ideally would include additional additives (such as magnesium) in appropriate amounts. ...Read more

Is sugar found in fruits- such as dates-bad for weight loss? How much should I have? (on a daily calorie diet of 1, 352) also dates have carbs! >_<

Is sugar found in fruits- such as dates-bad for weight loss? How much should I have? (on a daily calorie diet of 1, 352) also dates have carbs! >_<

YES,choose low glyc.: All sugars are carbs (though not all carbs are sugars). Minimizing sugar is crucial for weight loss. Some fruits have much more sugar than others. Glycemic index measures how much a food raises blood sugar. Dates actually raise blood sugar more than pure sugar! low-glycemic fruits like berries, cherries ; apples can be eaten in moderation; avoid high-glycemic fruits.

Is consuming 920 calories a day ok? I'm trying to lose weight by exercising & counting calories. I'm 140 lbs, ideal weight is my prebaby weight of 122

Many more ?s: It is possible to eat around 1, 000 cal per day to loose weight. The trick is getting the proper nutrition and vitamins into that constrained calorie count. I would also say that exercise at that calorie level would need to be temporarily halved or stopped, depending on what you are doing and how intense the workout is. A better approach may be a few more calories with moderate exercise. ...Read more

Medically supervised very low calorie diet (800 calories). Ok to exercise. Principle of ketosis. Burn about 400 cal/day/hr monitor. Safe?

No safe shortcuts: This type of diet often makes the body angry, decreasing calories too much too quickly will send your body into starvation mode. Less calories = weight loss, but your body will become more efficient at holding onto calories, so you will gain the weight back and then some later on. Weight watchers is the safest and most consistent in my experience with thousands of people. ...Read more
