When eating something what makes you fat besides calories? Trans fat. Sugar saturated fat calories from fat. etc...?

Not enough activity: The simple formula which determines if you gain or lose weight is Calories taken in minus Calories used. Taken on a day to day basis, you can know if you are using up the calories or not. If calories eaten far exceeds calories burned up by whatever activity, weight is gained.

Does eating high fat but low carb foods make you lose weight but higher cholesterol levels or is ingested fats also stored as fat in our bodies?

Does eating high fat but low carb foods make you lose weight but higher cholesterol levels or is ingested fats also stored as fat in our bodies?

Fat has calories: Fatty foods are packed with calories, twice the number of carbs or proteins for the same amount of food. So high fat is not going to help you lose weight just because you are avoiding starches and sugars (carbs). Your total calorie intake needs to go down and/or your exercise up to lose weight. Start reading labels with portion size and calorie content as well as the breakdown carb/protein/fats. ...Read more

If i eat no carbs in a week and eat more fats like oil and fried food i will lose weight?

If i eat no carbs in a week and eat more fats like oil and fried food i will lose weight?

Fried food not wise!: Fried food is one of the least healthy things we can eat & is certainly not a good strategy for losing weight! eating "no carbs" is extreme. Not all carbs are bad- avoiding starches- sugar, grains, potatoes & sweeter fruits will help you lose weight, but do not avoid most vegetables. You need more than a week to lose much.See www.Nytimes.Com/2012/07/01/opinion/sunday/what-really-makes-us-fat.Html. ...Read more

Do excess carbs/sugars get converted into saturated fat in our bodies? And if so, then would a high fat/low carb diet be healthier than a high carb/low fat diet?

Do excess carbs/sugars get converted into saturated fat in our bodies? And if so, then would a high fat/low carb diet be healthier than a high carb/low fat diet?

Yes and No: Yes, you are right in that excess of carbs/sugars get converted into fat. So do eat carbs, but in moderation. Eating fat doe snot do any good, so i would say no to your second question. What you need to do is choose a balanced diet which has ample amounts of plant based foods which are free of both fats and avoid too much sugar. In addition, get a good amount of proteins by eating fish, nuts & egg. ...Read more

Does eating or drinking ginger daily shed pounds, burn calories and burn fat too?

Does eating or drinking ginger daily shed pounds, burn calories and burn fat too?

No: People will try to sell all sorts of stuff by claiming it BURNS FAT. Of course, the stuff doesn't work. Avoid putting those gimmicky products into your body, and save your money. Weight loss happens when a person eats FEWER calories than she needs. Don't eat or drink sugar, or do it only rarely. Exercise burns fat, because fat is stored fuel... and muscles need fuel to work. ...Read more

One must consume less calories than they burn.I eat very small amounts of food which mainly consists of vegetables. I move A LOT. No weight loss.Why?

One must consume less calories than they burn.I eat very small amounts of food which mainly consists of vegetables. I move A LOT. No  weight loss.Why?

First point is true: "One must consume less calories than they burn" or else one will not lose any weight. Even if one is eating apparently small amounts of food, and moving a lot, the laws of nature do not change... meaning there will not be weight loss until the number of calories absorbed into one's body is less than the number of calories burned each day. This is always true for normal, healthy people. ...Read more

Healthy fats in mod.: Avocado is an extremely healthy food- see http://tinyurl.com/3afn8ap Olive oil is healthier than most other oils but its benefits are exaggerated- see http://tinyurl.com/kj8rim One should not avoid a healthy food just because it is a good source of healthy fats. The question of a low-fat vs. low carb diet is complex but one should choose healthy fats & healthy carbs. See http://tinyurl.com/nq4sx63 ...Read more
