Childhood Obesity: Nope. Not at all. That is 800 calories. You are the parent. You are responsible for the health of your child. This is obscene and to me child abuse to allow your child to become grossly obese. If they are not obese they soon will be at that rate. 800 calories in a 7 month old between regular meals? That is extremely unhealthy. ...Read more

Yes, yes &: Not nearly as healthy as you would think. There are other grains that are healthier, like rye for example , and others that are a lot better than whole wheat. If your choices were whole wheat or white i'd pick the whole wheat, but just about only then. ...Read more
I am allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut. Could I have a protein intolerance?
What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome.This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Diabetes and Food: I think the simple answer is no. But, when you look at these specific items in your list there are things that are lower in carbohydrates like the yogurt and the avocado. But, in each person with diabetes, the answer may vary based upon how well controlled their blood sugars are. The goal is to eat more protein and less carbohydrates. That means less sugars, less fruits and less carbs overall. ...Read more
Some maybe - most no: Most frozen dinners contain a lot of extra sodium and preservatives that you wouldn't use if you cooked the meal at home. You really need to read labels carefully. There are some fairly decent kinds though. Companies like artisan bistro, amy's and kashi make some that are better -- again, check the label to see what you're buying. Important also to include some fresh foods in your diet. ...Read more
