No.: In and of itself, the water diet does nothing to increase health. Set aside the questionable weight loss.

So if you were having fast food all day before the water diet, you'd be eating just as unhealthily while on the diet. ...Read more

Is a vegetarian diet healthy?

Is a vegetarian diet healthy?

Controversial: This is a topic that I don't think there is a straightforward answer for! A vegetarian diet can be healthy because you lower your saturated fat intake from animal fat!

I believe a well balanced diet with lean meets can be just as healthy or healthier! ...Read more

Is an all fruits and vegetable diet healthy or do you need bread, eggs, etc?

You need variety...: Fresh fruits and veggies are good in general because they provide some good vitamins/nutrition, but as human we cannot digest cellulose--the main component in veggies/fruits, which the cows/horse can. They can turn grass/hays into proteins/meats, we cannot. A variety of food types is recommended--see the pyramid for example. Consult your doc/nutritionist. Live well, melani6.

What's a safe, effective and quick diet for a 18 year old female? Be more specific than eat healthy and exercise. I want lose 10-15 pounds.

Eat less & exercise: The key to losing weight is to eat less, but not all calories are created equal. Sugars & simple carbs from grains esp cause weight gain. I like dr. Furhman's diet: http://www.

Is the juice diet healthy? You do it 6 times a day and only drink the juice you make out of multiple fruites and veggies. How long is okay for this

Is the juice diet healthy? You do it 6 times a day and only drink the juice you make out of multiple fruites and veggies. How long is okay for this

This can be healthy: If you add in protein - rice protein is easily digested. Cleanses of this type are often done for 3 days or a little longer.

Too many fruit juices can be too much sugar. Juices must be freshly juiced. ...Read more
