Apart from healthy eating, to gain more nutrition-good idea to make hot chocolate with nutritionally rich cocoa powder, vanilla extract & stevia daily?

Sounds good: So good, in fact, that if this is what you want to drink, drink it and don't even worry whether this is our idea of a perfect ideal beverage choice. If you are healthy, just staying physically fit is much more important than obsessing over food choices. I would bet you know this already. Enjoy the chocolate.

Unrelated: Hi. Inclusion or exclusion of salt has no bearing on weight loss (unless food addiction involves salty foods!). There is no weight loss program I'm aware of that tells you to eat salt. Please give us more information because so far, it's not making much sense to me. Good luck!

Discuss: You have a couple of options of professionals to consult. A dietician/nutritionist or personal trainers are able to provide this information and get you started on your healthy lifestyle. Hope this helps best of luck!

I work out in the am, eat healthy, only drink water/tea. I wake up with a flat stomach but am extremely bloated as day goes on. Any idea why?

Healthy foods: Sometimes the healthy foods (high in fiber and protein) are the most gas-producing foods! Dairy can also cause bloating if you're eating a lot of that. Try taking a probiotic supplement and see if that helps the bloating.

I eat healthy and exercise and can't get rid of belly fat. Ideas?

Weight Loss: I applaud you for eating healthy, for that is a great start. Be sure that in addition to healthy foods you are practicing portion control. Also, change up the types of exercise you are doing to lose weight. Cardio (running, biking, swimming) will help burn some fat while you exercise, but make sure to build muscle too. Muscle burns fat for energy at rest, and glucose for energy during exercise.

Don't smoke drink or do drugs exercise daily eat healthy but blood pressure is high never was before so any ideas why now. Tyvm?

A few ideas: It might be genetic. Age contributes, too. Also, do you watch your sodium? Many healthy foods are high in sodium. Check labels. Max of 2000mg a day. Practice belly breathing can sometimes lower your blood pressure. Make sure you get enough sleep and not stressed out. In addition, you should ask your doctor to check secondary causes of hypertension, such as thyroid or renal problems.

Healthy vs '/calorie: Eating 'healthy" does not mean you are not overeating. 100 calories are 100 calories whether it was whole wheat bread or white bread. Calorie intact cannot be more than calories burned if you are wanting to lose weight. On the other hand, endocrine disorders, thyroid being only one, can make it almost impossible to lose weight.

Hormones: You may be suffering from a hormone deficiency, or a problem with your cells uptaking and using the hormones you are producing. If you are only 23 y/o and you are having all these issues, I would highly recommend having your primary doctor do a full blood work panel on you to see if there are any imbalances that could be treated to alleviate these issues

Dysmenorrhea: We call this condition dysmenorrhea. if it becomes more frequent and heavier we call it Menometrorrhagia. Several things can cause this condition. Need to see your GYN doctor for examination and evaluation. Recommend iron supplementation to help prevent anemia from the blood loss.

Have some health problems was thinking about a plant based eating lifestyle + fish only, ppl say that's a bad idea it can cause more problems. True? Ty

Food plan: Please start by seeing your doctor so that you both know what you are dealing with. If you think you have some nutritional imbalances consider getting a Micronutrient Test like one from Spectracell. Com. Then you will know what you need to eat or supplement with. A plant based diet w/fish is a possibility but you need to be more informed before doing that. Peace and good health.

I want to start eating healthy but have no idea what to eat for breakfast/lunch what are some healthy ideas?

The simplest: Formula I can give you is eat only "god made" food for that is the "fuel" for which we were designed----not easy in this day and age and good food is expensive but you might be surprised at the money that millions are putting into "junk" on the grounds of expense.

Is swimming a good idea for healthy living?

Is swimming a good idea for healthy living?

Jump on in: The water's fine! Huge enthusiastic yes! swimming stretches and works out your body all over. It's low impact so it's friendly for backs and knees too. So if you're feeling amphibious, it's a great way to get moving. But most of all, choose exercise that will be fun for you. If you're not inclined to swim, that's okay. You can find something else to do.

Could you give me an idea of what a healthy breakfast would include?

Could you give me an idea of what a healthy breakfast would include?

Healthy breakfast.: With the understanding that breakfast is an important meal in your day, start generally with leaner and more energizing choices. Cereals rich with complex carbohydrates and fiber for sustained energy, with skim or 1% milk to keep it lighter. Low fat yogurt and fresh fruit. Egg whites and whole grain toast. Try to avoid fatty breakfast meats. Keep your proteins lean.

No: You are going to destroy all your muscles, you are going to have severe vitamin deficiencies. What health benefits are you talking about?

If I want a career in healthcare is it a good idea to keep updated on health news?

If I want a career in healthcare is it a good idea to keep updated on health news?

Not a bad idea.: Healthcare and the way healthcare is provided is dramatically changing in these last few years. 'Obamacare', insurance payments, doctors not choosing to build a solo practice are among these. You're at a time where you can decide as you go what you wish to pursue as healthcare will not remain as you know it today and will continue dynamically changing. Technology/ Economy are related.

I am a healthy but overweight 27 year old. I watch what I eat very closely and go to the gym 5 days a week yet I cannot lose! Any idea's?

I am a healthy but overweight 27 year old. I watch what I eat very closely and go to the gym 5 days a week yet I cannot lose! Any idea's?

Losing Weight: Any answers to this question will be very ambiguous and generic. Please follow this advise and then bring it back to us. I need a one week food diary (you can find any of a number of tools online for this) with the total calories you consume and what type of calories they are. Then I need the specifics of your exercise. What your activity is, for how long and what your heart rate is.

How is applied medicine different from academia? Would it ever be a bad idea to ask for health advice from say a biomedical researcher (phd)?

Yes: Mds and dos are trained in clinical medicine with basic science background. Phds are trained in basic science and clinical research, not the practice of medicine. There is a long educational process and art to clinical medicine. They study the same disease processes but work on different aspects. Phds work on the science and theory. Mds/dos work on using this knowledge to treat people.

I eat over a bar of dark chocolate on some days. What health benefits can I expect from this? As long as I stay active, is this a good idea?

I eat over a bar of dark chocolate on some days. What health benefits can I expect from this? As long as I stay active, is this a good idea?

Unlikely a problem: I think there are benefits to dark chocolate in many respects and certainly in the naturpathic medicine fields. Overall if your weight is good, you don't have diabetes or high blood pressure, and you don't smoke and your cholesterol is good, there shouldn't be much of a problem with that.
