I am 19 yrs I have chronic pancreatitis (idiopathic), I want to increase my weight any advice for exercise. I am having fat free food no animal proteins?

Will be difficult.: Most ppl w/ CIP become thin. To increase weight, you need 2 increase caloric (food) intake. I normally recommend exercise & increasing protein intake. However, ur diet & pancreas preclude this. There must be some (vegetable?) proteins that you can consume. I would have you coordinate with a nutritionist who is experienced with your condition. Tell them ur problem & ask them how to gain wt safely. ...Read more

What negative health complication could arise when doing protein shake diet, high protein, zero carb and zero fat, for a short period (10 days)?

What negative health complication could arise when doing protein shake diet, high protein, zero carb and zero fat, for a short period (10 days)?

Putting a lot of: stress on your kidneys. Good fats help maintain skin, brain health, digestion, and absorption of vital nutrients from food, vegetables, fruits, and enzymes. So not having that for 10 days seems rather severe. Also, there is thought that a no fat diet tends to make people have less satiety and feel hungry more. What type of protein, vegetable or meat? It's not a balanced approach. Low carb is better. ...Read more

Most low fat and fat free foods are high in sugar. However I'm told these are better choices when it comes to dairy. Should I eat whole or low fat?

Opinions, opinions: I don't think it will matter too much - so a big part of your answer will be which you like better. Also different brands can differ. But, I've heard from nutritionist friends that the range from whole to fat free is much smaller than the public thinks. If you have gall bladder problems or a specific reason to avoid fat, think non-dairy! Otherwise, read labels & buy what you like. ...Read more

Should I continue consuming around 3000 calories of clean low fat high protein foods for the muscle gain?

Not that Simple: Endurance, slow twitch, red muscles (eg. Cardiac muscle) primarily burn fat. Higher strength, quick twitch, more white/less red (lower capillary density/blood flow) muscle burns more sugar. No scientific evidence that sat. Fats, of natural origin, less healthy than carbs/protein, indeed opposite true. Study: big fat lies, mcgovern's report, science for smart people, dietdoctor, nusi. Org, lustig. ...Read more

What are some food that I can eat that's high in protein and fat but low in carbs? I always come up short in protein and I use calorie trackers.

Nuts may be best bet: Don't know whether you are looking for snack or regular foods. Of course meat would be the obvious answer, but nuts contain very good fats as well as significant protein. Almonds and walnuts are probably best. So do cheeses. Of course they have calories, but you do need fats and calories at your age to continue to develop normally. ...Read more

If: If you have never had previous surgery on the abdomen it would be unusual to have a hernia of that size in that location. Having said that, based on your height and weight it is more likely that you have a hernia (rather than a tumor) or more likely a "rectus diastasis" which comes from a thinning out of tissues under the skin and could be thought of as an early hernia.
A very brief exam in your doctor's office should be able to differentiate between the two. ...Read more

Would a diet high in protein lead to increased kidney levels? Level was slightly high upon admit, increased after given concentrated protein in food

Would a diet high in protein lead to increased kidney levels? Level was slightly high upon admit, increased after given concentrated protein in food

Creatine in muscle: Muscles r mostly made of protein. Creatine (Cr) is from muscle breakdown & a blood test measuring it is often used 2 estimate how well the kidneys work. (Note high Cr means worse kidneys). Cr is also sold as a protein powder for body builders, but 1-2 servings shdn't raise the Cr very much. Regular intake, I suppose, cd have an effect. More likely something else was damaging ur kidney or muscles. ...Read more
