Living Life: No physician would want to make you feel in any way that you need our permission to eat foods. All humans get to choose their diets. And, all humans make choices of foods that are not in and of themselves 'healthy'. But, this is life. We get to eat something we love once in awhile whether it is healthy or not. ...Read more

He ate whole canned fruit.

Difficulty w/ swallo: Somebody must have thought the person your concerned about has difficulty with chewing and or swallowing his food. Then he might get food into his lungs and get an aspiration pneumonia. So he is being fed like a child. I don't know if he has dentures yet but that would be another consideration in feeding issues. Reminds of the old riddle: what walks on 4 ft, then 2 ft, then 3 ft. ...Read more

Ok that i cut out sweet potatoes and bread or was i wrong doing so? I'm tryin to lose weight, usually eat vegs, white meat, beans, 1 egg a day.

Ok that i cut out sweet potatoes and bread or was i wrong doing so? I'm tryin to lose weight, usually eat vegs, white meat, beans, 1 egg a day.

Wise to reduce bread: Most experts would agree that avoiding bread helps people to lose weight- it is wise to minimize starches, esp. Those that raise blood sugar as much as bread does. However, sweet potatoes have many useful nutrients and don't raise blood sugar nearly as much as bread or white potatoes, so i see no need to cut them out- see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=foodspice&dbid=64 for more info. ...Read more

Little white thread like things on mushy stool and on wipes. Look& feel like little rolled up  paper  but i don't use toilet paper I use wipes. Ideas?

Test: White threads in stool could be food remnants, mucus from the colon, or worms. A good place to start is to test the stool for worms and parasites. It can also be tested for occult blood and evidence of inflammation in the intestine (wbc, calprotectin, lactoferrin). Those tests in conjunction with a history and physical exam should yield some answers. ...Read more

If I eat lettuce, raw carrots, steamed broccoli and beets, grated cheese and one piece of meat daily for breakfast lunch and dinner will I lose weighr?

If I eat lettuce, raw carrots, steamed broccoli and beets, grated cheese and one piece of meat daily for breakfast lunch and dinner will I lose weighr?

Depends On A Lot: That all depends on your current weight, body fat to muscle ratio, amount you eat and total daily calories ingested, your activity level and overall basal metabolic rate. One thing for sure, you're on the right track in terms of WHAT you eat, although you didn't specify what KINDS of meat you eat or if you ever might eat some vegetable sources of protein.I think that just might cover it. ...Read more

Flatulence nonstopAfter ate nuts see white pieces in stool.vomit after ate avocado&linseedoil.Smellystool fart.bad concentration&memory.dryskinhairlos?

Wow...lots of issues: I don't think we can really put all these things together into a common condition. There are clearly some gastrointestinal issues with the gas..not that concerned about white pieces after nuts or vomiting after linseed oil. Biggest cause of concentration and memory issues at your age is stress. Would check thyroid as under active gland could contribute to all. Work with your doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I eat only junk food and high fatty foods. Could this cause oil slick in toilet after bowel movement?

I eat only junk food and high fatty foods. Could this cause oil slick in toilet after bowel movement?

Good fat vs.: bad fat. Bad fat in junk food can result in greasy bowel movements and overall deterioration in health. Good fat such as found in coconut oil and olive oil will increase the probability of good health and give you a feeling of satiety so you are not so hungry. Try to eat better now or you may pay for it later. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Iam gluten free gaining weight why if i avoid all bread items i eat chicken beans beef along side salad no dressing rice or corn cereal fruits?

Gaining weight: That's great that you are not consuming a lot of carbs and are watching your diet. You also need to look at the overall quantity (and calories) of what you are eating as well. Are you exercising too? Without physical activity (cardio), it is hard to lose weight. You have to burn more calories than you are consuming. You might be doing this already and have another reason for weight gain. ...Read more

How did people stay thin when they ate biscuit and sausage gravy, 2 eggs, milk, juice every morning?

Yes plus: You can work it off. Still you need to process the fats - makes sure you take carnitine and Niacin - the first one will turn sugars into health HDL instead of triglycerides, Niacin will process bad cholesterol into bile instead of ldl. ...Read more
