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 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

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

My weight is 94kg from last 26 day. I do regular walk for 6km it is enough for fitness? I also avoid oily food please suggest a good diet program

See Dr., and then...: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

I'm curious about this whole notion of "detoxing" via different programs (i.e. a juice detox) Under what circumstances are they safe to do? Is it true that highly processed foods are "addictive" and add toxins to your body? What about those types of foo

Not proven: While the typical American diet with processed foods is not truly "addictive", eating a lot of processed foods, sugars, fats, alcohol, etc, presents a challenge to the body's metabolism. Relying on fasting & juices can affect fluid balance/electrolytes and be dangerous causing heart rhythm problems. Simplifying the diet and avoiding these foods over several weeks can be a safe "cleanse". ...Read more

I just started a weight loss program and they told me diet pop is a free food. It doesn't count for anything. Isn't diet pop bad for you?

Yes it is: Diet pop won't affect your weight loss for most part however it containing food coloring and chemicals like a aspartame which is not good for your health. Diet sodas that contain stevia are probably the healthiest. Any liquid that comes in a can is exposed to a lot of chemicals which have been known to be cancerous in long term including soups etc. Try sodas in a glass like kombucha which is healt. ...Read more
