How do school food programs boost the health of kids?

By feeding them: Sadly, there are many children in our country whose parents cannot feed them, and for some of those kids, the only meals they really get in a week are the meals and snacks they get at school. Our schools provide a much needed safety net for these kids. Without the food provided there, the kids would be in much worse shape than they are. ...Read more

Diet food programs that cause fastest loss?

Diet food programs that cause fastest loss?

No such thing: I'm afraid no diet program promotes rapid or good weight loss. The best weapons to use in losing weight are healthy, balanced meals and regular exercise. There are several commercials on tv that promote success stories with weight loss, but to be honest, no program is successful unless you change your eating habits for the rest of your life, vs. Just a short term diet. ...Read more

Any 30-day diet food programs you can think of?

Eat less + exercise: There are a huge number of diet programs. Most emphasize high quality foods like vegetables. Any diet that actually reduces your caloric intake to less than you burn in a day will work. It's not the diets that are in question, it's our ability to follow them long enough to get results. Weight watchers has a nice online program that my patients like, but do any diet that you feel good on and can do. ...Read more

How to get skinny with eating dorm food programs?

How to get skinny with eating dorm food programs?

Stick to Fresh Food: Try to stick to fresh food, vs. Heavily processed foods. I know that's tough in a dormitory cafeteria/eating facility (believe me, i've been there), but stick to veggies, "plain and simple" meat dishes and whole grain foods. Avoid the flavored milks, soda, white breads/pastas and dessert (except on special occasions). The biggest culprit in gaining weight in college is snacking in your room! ...Read more

Any 30-day diet food programs for rapid weight loss?

No safe ones: Crash diets can produce rapid weight loss but often are lacking in essential nutrients. Also because they are so restrictive, they lower your metabolic rate, so when you stop the diet (and you will because they are not sustainable) you regain the weight. Slow steady weight loss using a diet you can live on is better. ...Read more
