Whar are some natural foods that will increase my metabolics?

Burn fat faster? Nah: There are few magic foods that "burn" calories no matter how many claims you hear or read. There is no substitute for exercise, portion control, & calorie restriction.

Avoid stimulants (caffeine), laxatives, fad diets. ...Read more

Milk and dairy products increase igf-1 levels that is shown in research papers to increase the sebum production as well. Is that so ?

Haven't heard of it: When reading such research papers, one should ask questions such as: which milk products (there are thousands or more), who were the test subjects, who were the control subjects (did not receive the test products), how many people were tested (the more the better), how much were the igf-1 levels affected, etc... Sometimes research papers have trustworthy results; othertimes not at all. ...Read more

I've read in many places that refined sugars, breads and other like products can cause acne? Is this true? Can a healthy diet improve acne? Exercise?

The real controlled studies show basically zero diet effect on acne. Good diet & fitness are benenficial for their own sake and general health. ...Read more

Food and diet rich to increase health of utreus and stimulate ovulation and reduce infertility. Plz suggest foods to induce/stimulate ovulation.

Reality check...: A generally healthy diet low in fats and with balanced protein, carbohydrate, vitamins and minerals along with general good health and exercise, will increase "health of the uterus". However, diet alone will not "stimulate ovulation" or treat problems like endometriosis or scar tissue or ovulatory dysfunction, etc that contribute to infertility. ...Read more
