Apart from healthy eating,to gain more nutrition-good idea to make hot chocolate with nutritionally rich cocoa powder,vanilla extract & stevia daily?

Apart from healthy eating,to gain more nutrition-good idea to make hot chocolate with nutritionally rich cocoa powder,vanilla extract & stevia daily?

Sounds good: So good, in fact, that if this is what you want to drink, drink it and don't even worry whether this is our idea of a perfect ideal beverage choice. If you are healthy, just staying physically fit is much more important than obsessing over food choices. I would bet you know this already. Enjoy the chocolate. ...Read more

What would be healthier to drink - diet coke or gatorade?

What would be healthier to drink - diet coke or gatorade?

Diet soda : My vote would be gatorade if done in moderation. There are studies that have shown that people who drink alot of soda are obese even if it is diet. The absolute right answer would be water. I usually tell my patients that if they eliminate liquid calories from their diet, that alone will help them drop significant pounds. Liquids pass through your stomach faster and do not keep you full. ...Read more

How can a lacto-vegetarian on restricted diet (no salt, sugar, oil, vinegar, gluten) eat healthy?

How can a lacto-vegetarian on restricted diet (no salt, sugar, oil, vinegar, gluten) eat healthy?

Balance the diet: A lacto-vegan has many choices for foods. A good nutrition book or a visit to a dietician can help form a balanced diet. Eating a big variety of foods helps prevent nutrient deficiencies. Also, one can take a daily multivitamin+mineral tablet. Lowfat or nonfat dairy products have plenty of protein. One can buy natural, gluten-free foods and cook them without adding salt, sugar, oil, nor vinegar. ...Read more

I am 61, female, vegetarian. Eat a lot of Morningstar vege protein food with Boost drink supplement & vitamins. Can I get adequate nutrition this way?

I am 61, female, vegetarian. Eat a lot of Morningstar vege protein food with Boost drink supplement & vitamins. Can I get adequate nutrition this way?

No Boost.: There's lots of very tasty protein in many Morningstar products. You do not need boost in addition. You can get what you need from better tasting food and freshly prepared fruits, grains, and vegetables, properly prepared. High protein diets are not healthy even if due to veggie sources (although High veg protein diets are better than high animal protein diets when we're talking risk of cancer). ...Read more

210pounds 5^2 21yrs old. Considering the 400(or600) calories a day diet. Nutritional diet plan?

Not enough calories: If you drop caloric intake too drastically - you will actually eat up a lot of muscle and drop your metabolic rate. This is NOT a healthy way to lose weight. Consider working with a nutritionist so that you can do this in a healthy way. Take care. ...Read more

Should i try dr. Oetker's "fun foods" milk shake mix or ensure for weight loss?

Definitely NOT: Both of these have calories and are designed to make money for the manufacturer. They will not help you lose weight. You need to burn off 3500 more calories than you take in to lose a pound. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. ...Read more

Poor nutrition in: the diet you mention, not the amount that is the real issue. Please see a nutritionist who can help you create a good food plan. Every meal needs to contain protein, fats, and carbs. Lots of good fats helpful to the brain. These are things like olive oil, coconut oil. Check w/doc first. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Which is better for a 3 year old picky eater a multivitamin or pedisure nutrition drink? On top of nutritional meals

Which is better for a 3 year old picky eater a multivitamin or pedisure nutrition drink?  On top of nutritional meals

Whole food vitamin : I like whole food vitamins that give you the equivalent of several servings of fruits and veggies. Good healthy foods should be presented with no ability to "place order" ( unless allergies ). Limit drinks as kids can fill up on milk and juice and not experience hunger. Make a healthy smoothie at home if needed. Find high calorie nutrient dense foods so do not need large quantity to be consumed. ...Read more

Drink milk dailly, good for health?

Drink milk dailly, good for health?

NOT NECESSARILY: Cow's milk is the #1 food allergy. Consider milk alternatives in rotation such as rice milk, goat milk, and almond milk. Soy milk is not a complete protein and thus, should be used sparingly. Also, one can develop an allergy to any food eaten too frequently. Get a food igg allergy test for milk. Food reactions cause inflammation and can interfere with metabolism. Check dna for lactose intolerance. ...Read more
