Is a vanilla protein shake with milk frozen banana and all natural peanut butter healthy for you after weight training?

Is a vanilla protein shake with milk frozen banana and all natural peanut butter healthy for you after weight training?

Protein and sugar: After a hard work out your body needs protein and some sugar (glucose). You should try not to eat fat and /or a huge amount of sugar. Try to find a protein shake that provides this balance. Non fat milk and a banana both provide some glucose without the fat content. I worry that your frozen shake has too much sugar and fat, which would would counter the affect of your workout. ...Read more

Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch  and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more

Is steamed white rice fattening? Can it replace wheat bread in a meal? What are good edible sources of calcium besides milk and suppliments?

Is steamed white rice fattening? Can it replace wheat bread in a meal?  What are good edible sources of calcium besides milk and suppliments?

Yes: White rice has a high glycemic index, which means it causes a rapid rise in your blood sugar. Part of the Insulin response to that rapid increase in blood sugar makes you fat. A tiny amount won't hurt, but it makes it difficult to lose weight. Replace the bread with vegetables. Not rice. Starch is not a required part of a meal. You can get calcium from yogurt, cheese, sardines, greens. ...Read more

200 ml toned milk, 2 egg whites and a medium sized banana. Healthy breakfast or not? Anything I should add or remove?Cornflakes healthy or fattening?

Breakfast: Please eat the entire egg, not just the whites. You are missing the most nutritious part. Bananas are ok but high in carbs so eat them sparingly. Cornflakes and almost any pre-packaged breakfast cereal has little or no nutrition. Use coconut oil or natural nut butter on sprouted grain bread. Peace and good health. ...Read more
