Is consuming whey protein daily harmful for my health? I workout 5 days a week and drink one or two shakes per day

There is a debate: There are two camps when it comes to whey protein derived from cheese. The vegan camp believes a link exists between dairy and cancer and autoimmune diseases. The other camp believes it helpful against inflammation and helps build muscle. My take is that the science is inconclusive either way, no one needs too much protein, and that nuts and grains like quinoa are a better source of protein. ...Read more

Is vitamin water zero a healthy choice?

Is vitamin water zero a healthy choice?

Yes and Not Really: The water portion of it is healthy and fine to drink. The vitamin (or other additive) portion of it is neither healthy nor unhealthy, because it can be obtained in our food or in a daily multivitamin (which covers most of the recommended vitamins); or because it is an additive that is advertised as helpful but may actually be unnecessary and unproven. It is fine to drink plain water and save $$$. ...Read more

Please describe a good, healthy meal plan for one day for a petite 15 year old that's vegetarian?

She'll decide: I'm going to assume you're a parent, possibly a concerned one. Vegetarian / vegan diets are popular among teenaged girls and may be well-informed or based on disinformation (teens have good hearts & are easily deceived). She's going to plan her eating, and you can only be sure she takes supplements (or she'll ruin her health) and isn't masking anorexia nervosa. The family physician can help. ...Read more

Must my child eat a balanced diet every day?

Must my child eat a balanced diet every day?

Good luck trying: The balanced diet is an adult idea, & a good one to practice for your lifetime.However it is a bit impractical when you deal with kids. Breast milk is balanced, but get past weaning & you must deal with a kid with his/her own ideas about eating. I like to look on kids from the vantage point of a balanced week rather than meal or day. Before school age their brain directs their cravings & does ok. ...Read more

Should I start a low carb diet or is a balanced diet more healthy for weight loss??

Interesting question: There are gazillions of fad diet programs out there & don't be hard on yourself if you feel like a deer in the headlights trying to figure out which one to select.

Healthy (polyunsaturated) fats are great appetite reducers, and you need protein as well to maintain your muscle mass. Cont-> ...Read more
