Please answer me. Is a gluten-free vegan diet healthy?

Please answer me. Is a gluten-free vegan diet healthy?

Must supplement: I admire vegans who undertake this for moral reasons, and some of them claim to feel much healthier. A gluten-free diet indisputably relieves celiac sprue and dermatitis herpetiformis and there is a minority belief that people not affected with these illnesses may improve their health by going gluten-free. Discuss this with your physician / dietician and don't force it on your children. ...Read more

The best diet that doctors approve for weight and health==dr ornish?

Best diet: The dr. Ornish diet is a very good one. Another, somewhat similar and equally excellent diet, is a mediterranean diet. But a good diet does not need to be that complicated. The simple rule of eating 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, limiting servings of meat to 4 oz at a time, and eating lots of grain will do just as well. ...Read more

I see an emphasis on low carb eating, even from bariatric docs here. Are fruit, yogurt, high fiber cereal not recommended for weight loss?

Determine Yourself: Most marketing, advice&products, is only marketing to sell stuff, Not Reality. I disagree with other answers. To figure out what works for you, weigh daily, to 0.01 lbs accuracy, after up & commode, & record. Mentally do a detailed review of specific foods & quantities you ate previous day & Start Seeing What Works vs. What Does Not. LCHF really helps. Study my answers, DietDoctor.com & NuSI.org. ...Read more

What is a good app or site to find, follow a healthy vegetarian diet?

What is a good app or site to find, follow a healthy vegetarian diet?

Find a good guide: If you're going to be a vegetarian and remain healthy, you have gained the moral high ground and may feel better, but you will need to supplement. For this, you'll need a relationship with a sympathetic dietician, physician, or other guide who knows you as an individual. Best wishes, and if you choose to undertake this, be discerning. ...Read more

Advise Nutritarian : As a doctor who specializes in nutrition i advise dr. Joel furhman's nutritarian diet as a balanced long-term approach to weight loss.
