Is it true that you shouldn't eat sugary foods( bread, jam, chocolate spread, honey...) for breakfast?
Balanced diet: Sugary foods alone for breakfast, do not give you a balanced nutrition for the rest of the day.

Honey is different though as it is largely fructose anad other natural sugars and much better than foods with refined white sugar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
For the most part: If you fry foods at too low a temperature or put too much food in the pan it will lengthen the time it takes to cook and will cause the food to absorb more fat from the oils. Some oils are less healthy than others. Studies support the notion that fried foods increase the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Frying in a canola oil for very brief time at high temp may be less harmful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Whole food vitamin : I like whole food vitamins that give you the equivalent of several servings of fruits and veggies.

Broiling also browns them, in something called the maillard reaction. This produces flavor compounds we find pleasing. This will make you hopefully eat more vegetables. And that's good. ...Read more

Yes, but...: Unfortunately, the marketers neglect to warn the consumers about the huge risk to the patient's dental health. These products are loaded with sugar.
