Why does eating sugary foods make cause me stomach bloating and mild nausea? It only happens when I eat chocolate or other foods  with lots of sugar.

Candida: Great question about sugary foods and bloating. One possibility is that you have an overgrowth of yeast in your intestines, called candida. Candida makes us crave sugary foods but also we get very bloated when we eat them. Have you ever used a probiotic? This helps control the overgrowth of yeast in our system and helps a lot with bloating and nausea. ...Read more

Doc is telling me i'm high in protein, fiber, fat and cholesterol, but is it bad to overdo it on fiber or protein?

Moderation: The only downside to excess fiber is flatulence, bloating and diarrhea. If you're not having those issues, it's not a problem. There is data that diets that are very high in protein over long periods can harm kidney function - i'd stay within the recommended guidelines. Liquid protein diets are dangerous and can cause arrhythmias. ...Read more

Taking much of carbohydrates, sugary food and drinks, can it call diabetes? Or is it just a myth?

Taking much of carbohydrates, sugary food and drinks, can it call diabetes? Or is it just a myth?

No myth: Consuming large amounts of sugars & carbs (including drinks) causes your pancreas to secrete more & more Insulin to keep up with the excess sugar load. Eventually, your cells can become resistant to insulin, creating more glucose in your bloodstream. Your cells need the fuel, but it can't get inside them. Higher blood sugar leads to diabetes.

Does chocolate and junk food cause acne and zits or this a myth? Some say it does some it does not? If so should I stop eating chocolate

Don't hesitate to get with your physician who can add something prescription-strength -- perhaps a month on a tetracycline, or if neede something even stronger. Best wishes. ...Read more

Does eating too much choco may cause me of eating disorder? I ate 150g/day of choco does this affect my appetite that why i can't eat much proper meal

It does not cause: An eating disorder per se. It would take a full psychiatric evaluation by an eating disorder specialist to determine if you actually have an eating disorder. Certainly however consuming too many calories of chocolate can be very filling and make it difficult for you to eat a normal meal. Please set up an appointment with a psychiatrist if you have any further concerns about this or if you find that you are gaining excessive weight or losing excessive weight or if you start vomiting after you eat. Best wishes. ...Read more

Generally, no: Spices and herbs that are not "hot" should generally be fine. That being said, everyone is different, and if you find that certain foods give you gastric upset or reflux, avoiding those foods is a good idea regardless of what is typical. Increasing fiber content of your food is helpful for reflux, fatty and highly processed foods can cause flares as can more than 1 caffeinated beverage daily. ...Read more
