healthy diet

Topic

Conditions (2)
Pregnant women should eat a balanced, nutritional diet and increase their calorie intake to meet the needs of the developing fetus and their changing bodies. Eating a range of wholesome and nutritious foods during pregnancy is one of the most important things that women can do to ensure the normal development and growth of the fetus, and it can help to prevent prematurity and low birth weight. For the mother, good nutrition helps to prevent anemia, infection, and poor healing.

What's a healthy diet?

Veg, fruits, nuts

Diet
A healthy diet consists of mostly plant based including green leafy vegetables and all different colors of fruits and vegetables. The majority of these should be raw as in a salad or lightly steamed. Meat should consist of lean chicken, turkey, fish, and occasionally very lean beef or pork. Snacks should be fruits, tree nuts, and whole grains. Go light on the carbs and only whole grains. No sugar.

Not particularly

There's often little objective science available to answer such questions but I found this interesting article: http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/index.php/isagenix-study-is-not-convincing/ In general,I don't advise diet programs based on gimmicks like meal substitutes.A long-term healthy diet is the best strategy- my favorite is http://www.drfuhrman.com/library/what-is-a-nutritarian-diet.aspx

How to manage a healthy diet?

Eat healthy foods!

Healthy_living
The way to manage a healthy diet is to eat healthy food & avoid unhealthy foods. The healthiest foods are organic veggies, fruits & good-quality protein. The least healthy foods contain GMO's. sugars (esp. high fructose corn syrup) & trans fats (fried foods). See http://bit.ly/GAGViU & http://bit.ly/19XAX7E & http://bit.ly/1dHW9hT It's hard to eat healthy ALL the time but you can most of the time!

What is a good healthy diet soda?

Zevia- avoid others

Open-uri20130318-27252-1flughf
In general, there is no such thing as a "healthy diet soda." Most diet sodas are EXTREMELY UNHEALTHY- sweetened with toxic chemicals & increasing weight! See http://kimberlysnyder.net/blog/2011/12/01/8-dangers-of-diet-soda/ The only one that may not have these hazards is Zevia. However, while certainly less toxic than the others, I am not ready to call it healthy. I advise Kombucha. See comment:

What is a suggested healthy diet?

Balanced diet

Open-uri20120828-7291-kvb52e
Women need to consider what they do and need throughout the weekdays and weekends and try to balance not only caloric intake with output but also nutrient (eg, folate) need and expenditure. This requires keeping a food diary, taking it to a nutritionist and following that plan daily. Seems like a lot of effort but there will soon be great apps for that. As they come along, I will share in Comments

What's a healthy diet for college?

Same as everywhere

Sugar
Eliminate juices, sodas, or other sweet drinks. Drink water. Don't eat fried foods (chicken nuggets, french fries etc). Watch the sugar content in cereals and snacks. Serve few starches, including breads, pastas, and (white) grains. Add more vegetables and fruits, but not too many fruits because of all the sugar they contain. In short, eat an organic, whole grain, no added sugar diet.

which is the healthy diet for teeth?

What the acids...

Teething
Diet in general isn't the only way to keep teeth healthy. I advise you to watch the acidic food and drinks, like sugared sodas and sucking on citrus fruits. The BEST thing you can do for healthy teeth is to brush and floss regularly and get regular and timely checkups with X-rays at your dentist.

what's a healthy diet for adolescence?

Same as for all ages

Diet
Adolescents should receive the same nutrition as adults and younger children. The goal is daily fruits/veggies, lean protein, and calcium containing products. Adolescent females often need more calcium intake then adults (aim for about 1000mg daily)
