Does Fiber Give You Energy
No. but...: Having normal electrolytes in blood is one of indirect indicators to tell us the body functions in its proper homeostasis which suggests the availability of reasonable functional reserve. Supplying electrolytes alone will not boost energy/vitality, but healthy lifestyle without overindulgence/obsession will. More? To articles listed in http://formefirst.com/onLifeBasics.html.

Fermented...: Many fibers, particularly the water insoluble kind, are readily fermented by your gut flora. Some people have certain intolerances to bean husks (try beano), to wheat/barley/rye (gluten sensitivity), &/or have a particularly active population in their gut of gas-forming organisms (try bifidobacter-containing probiotics). Maybe altered GI motility, ibs, air swallowing, maldigestion/malabsorption? ...Read more
Not doing it: Energy drinks are simply high doses of caffeine, which is not good for people in excess. Energy and stamina do not come out of a pill bottle, or for that matter 5 cups of coffee, although that can be a temporary solution. The long-term answer is good diet, exercise, staying at healthy weight, getting adequate sleep. A therapeutic multivitamin may help if your diet isn't what it should be. ...Read more

If a person's diet does not provide enough carbohydrates, how will the body meet its need for energy?
Will drinking 3 diet sodas a day make me fat? I feel as if I really need to lose some extra weight.
In a way, yes.: Even though they are "diet" sodas, they have actually been shown in studies to promote obesity anyway. It is unknown whether it is the sodas themselves or if it is the food that is often consumed with them (i.e. soda + burger). So you will need to go over what you are eating in a day, count up the calories, and see if that is the real problem rather than just the diet sodas. Good luck! ...Read more
Drinking energy drinks give me diarrhea, & a lot of people I know get diarrhea from it as well. What ingredient in energy drinks can give you diarrhea?
Lots of stuff: Many ingredients in energy drinks can cause diarrhea; different people have different sensitivities, so it’s hard to say which one actually causes it in any individual. According to sports physicians i've talked to, the best energy drink is water. One team doctor told me that those big energy drink barrels you see on the sidelines at games are usually full of water, not the advertised product. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Fruit,veggies,grains: If your goal is "high fiber" try for 25 grams or more a day (our ancestor cavemen probably consumed & tolerated twice that). Water soluble fiber supplements minimize gassiness & bloating that some experience w/ insoluble fibers. High fiber foods include uncooked vegetables, unpeeled fruits, & whole grains (oatmeal, bran, etc.). Advantages include: cholesterol drop, an assist to weight loss, more. ...Read more
None of them: Proper diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle is what i recommend to anyone for strength. Energy drinks are mostly caffeine, sometimes with unnecessary vitamins or additives that really are unnecessary and useless for most people. These can give temporary "strength" or "energy" to people, but do not improve health. ...Read more
Does overcooking vegetables make them lose their nutritional value? Can you still get some benefit from them if you eat fruit too?
Nutrients in Vegetables: There is no single best to answer to this question. It depends on which vegetable and which nutrients you're talking about. Generally vegetables pack the most nutrients when they are fresh, not overcooked, and not over boiled (for water-soluble nutrients). It is perfectly OK to eat vegetables and fruit at the same time. You will still absorb the nutrients from both. Enjoy! ...Read more
If 3500 cal =1lb and you need to eat like 1800 calories to get that energy how do you lose weight?1800-300cal(exercise)=
1500.Just need clarification.
To lose weight alone: you need 2 decrease caloric intake. A well balanced diet can do this. If you add an exercise program that includes cardio 1 day & a weight lifting on 2nd day and so on you will lose weight, but a program that includes hard work outs,while you lose fat you will gain muscle mass & strength & look more fit. But muscle is heavier than fat so weight loss may B negated, but you will look much better. ...Read more
