Eating Right Veggie Burgers
Are veggie chips as bad as regular chips? My daughter has been asking for chips cause her classmates I don't want her eating junk like I did as a kid
Probably: Processed foods present with similar caloric load and preservatives, which becomes evident if one compares the nutritional value label that is required from manufacterers ...Read more
Will it be beneficial to workout after eating a veggie burger with a few fries fried that have 0 trans fat oil?
Doesn't matter: In general, you should avoid vigorous exercise for a little while immediately after eating anything since exercise diverts blood supply away from the digestive tract and your food will sit, undigested, in your stomach where reflux is likely. Doesn't matter if you eat a veggie burger, french fries, or anything else. ...Read more
Is a veggie smoothie with the pulp more nutritious to consume vs eating it (let's say both processes use raw veggies)?
Smoothies: Smoothies are often not very healthy since most, like yours, are concentrated sugar calories. If you are overweight or at risk of diabetes the carbohydrates and sugar are the enemy. There is no health difference to the smoothie you asked about. Both sound like 100% carb calories. ...Read more
My daughter is 5 months and 2 weeks old. She has been eating solids since 4 months. Can I give her baby snacks (i.E veggie sticks, etc) she doesn't crawl?
No. Still too young.: Babies around 6-8 months are breast feeders or bottle feeders, with pureed (or very mashed up) foods just for treats or learning experiences, but not as big parts of their diet. Babies don't chew food even after their first birthdays. Solid foods are too risky, and even so-called teething biscuits tend to choke babies. If trying such finger foods before 18 months, learn to do baby CPR first! ...Read more
What's the best way to deal with the post-family-dinner holiday binge eating? Should I go on a veggie-only cleanse?
Holiday calories: That is an excellent question. You should strive to use smaller portions of each family dish to minimize the binge eating phenomenon to begin with. Vegetarian or vegan diets are very healthy but you need to make sure that you are eating balanced and getting enough exercise. Healthy eating and exercise go together but when we are not perfect, incorporate more exercise and low fat, low carb options ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

After I eat I get nauseating pain. I feel bloated crampy and gassy. These symptoms have made eating not very pleasurable. Meat/fresh veggie are OKAY on tumy?
During pregnancy, what causes a female to get nauseated after eating if she dost ingest some type of green veggie my pregnant fiance get's sick after eating if she dose not eat a green vegetable with every meal. Can you tell me why?
That : That is a very good question that I have often thought about. No one knows what evolutionary purpose morning sickness caused, to be sure. It was probably to avoid certain poisonous types of food that were bad for pregnancy. Some women get no morning sickness at all, and some women get such severe morning sickness they can only have tube-feedings. Women crave and are repulsed by completely diffferent types of foods. Some women can't eat vegetables, some crave them; some women can't eat meat, some crave it. It is very variable but may have to do with nutritional issues and evolution; no one knows for sure. I hope your fiancee is feeling better soon; morning sickness usually improves by 12-14 weeks. ...Read more
I'm 7.5 weeks pregnant, my urine smells fruity. I am eating fruit but not much else. I try for one protein/veggie meal/day, and my digestion is terrible, leaving me very uncomfortable and nauseated. Should I be concerned about the snell of my urine?
Eat less & exercise: I do not recommend eating only fruits & veggies (at least not for more than a week or so) as this may not provide adequate protein & won't provide essential oils. But by adding nuts & seeds this can be a very healthy way to lose weight. I like dr. Furhman's diet: http://www.Drfuhrman.Com/library/what-is-a-nutritarian-diet.Aspx. ...Read more
Veggies Are Good: Eating foods rich in beta carotene such as carrots, green leafy vegetables, spinach, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes will not harm you. However the danger of overdose occurs with overuse of beta carotene supplements. The most prominent symptom of overdose is a yellowish skin discoloration of the face, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Check with your doctor before adding these supplements. ...Read more

Loss vs production: We need to test further.It is usually a matter of loss(menses, ulcer, bowel or even a cancer) vs a problem with your bone marrow production.Tests that would be helpful include iron levels, ferritin, tibc, b-12, folate, (folic acid) platelets, stool for occult blood, and a good history in re your menses and diet.The size and shape of your rbc's are clues to causes of anemia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: I would not trust any packaged (or fresh produce) for that matter - even if organic. People touch them, they get shipped all over, chemicals added, etc. Best to wash them before consuming. ...Read more
i have hp able to control it with reducing salt exercise 30 min a day lost 10 pounds eating veggies only BP 115/71/77 do i still need to take pill?
To an extent.: If that's the only way for you to intake some nutrients from vegetables (i.e. You do not eat salads, vegetables) then v8 can provide a mediocre solution. It is still best to consume salads and vegetables instead of drinking their juice. ...Read more
It is okay: A v8 is relatively healthy although it is thought that the less processed the better so more whole food approaches are thought to be even healthier. It would probably be healthier than a soda! if you are watching sodium you could try to get the low sodium version. Stay safe! ...Read more
