Why the rush: Solids in the first year do not help the baby grow better.Breast milk is an adequate nutrition source, and solids today are primarily a training process to transition them to the table. Apples and bananas are constipating agents. Prunes & pears loosen stools. I'd quit the rush through the list of foods and just keep it simple. ...Read more

This lunch healthy for 18 y/o tryin 2 lose weight? 1 piece whole wheat bread, 1avacodo, slices of tomato/onion/bell pepper, & 4-6 oz chicken breast

OK but...: This is ok but if you really want to lose weight you might avoid the bread as less carbs will help; some feel gluten causes obesity so rice or quinoa might be better.

Are you exercising too? Without physical activity (cardio), it is hard to lose weight. You have to burn more calories than you are consuming. You might be doing this already and have another reason for weight gain. ...Read more
