Will it be beneficial to workout after eating a veggie burger with a few fries fried that have 0 trans fat oil?

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)?

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?

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?

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 more

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?

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

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
