What is a good healthy eating plan for teenagers who are hungry all the time?

Fruits, veggies...: Fruits, vegetables, whole grains. Not sugary foods, sodas, fatty snacks. And teach them to eat at designated times - like small portions 4-6 times per day. Being hungry all the time is a cop out for the teenagers - that's a bad habit that won't serve them when they get a little older. ...Read more

Age17 weight133 BMI 21.5 1 hour of cardio2-3 times a week, P90X ab workout 3-4 times a week, healthy eating, lots of water. How long until I have abs?

A dirty secret: You can't force your body to lose fat in certain areas, so doing sit ups won't cause the fat over your abs to get thinner. U won't have the "6-pack" until you remove all the fat tissue in the skin covering your abs. You'd have to decrease your entire body fat to absurd levels to get your skin thin enough. Truth is, most of the "6-packs" you see out there were liposuctioned. ...Read more

When it comes to healthy eating, would already damaged/clogged veins and arteries get better over time?

When it comes to healthy eating, would already damaged/clogged veins and arteries get better over time?

Complicated question: 1st, veins and arteries behave differently and can't be lumped together. 2nd, vein disease is usually not affected by diet 3rd, artery disease can be made worse with bad eating habits but smoking and diabetes do more damage to your arteries than diet (generally speaking). ...Read more

May be hypoglycemia: These symptoms could well be due to hypoglycemia, which is low blood sugar. To confirm this you should have your blood sugar tested when having symptoms and/or do a glucose tolerance test. The treatment is to avoid sugars/simple carbs and to eat more frequently. Whatever the cause, these symptoms warrant evaluation by a doctor. See http://www.Umm.Edu/altmed/articles/hypoglycemia-000090.Htm. ...Read more

Hello Doctor!
Can you give me a time table for a healthy lifestyle to improve my health as I live day by day? Thank you so much for your your concern.

Time table?: I'm not sure what you mean by time table; some people can make changes quickly, others more slowly. You might enjoy the book 8 Weeks To Optimum Health by Andrew Weil for a program. I would start by improving diet; eliminate junk food, avoid sugar and fried food, eat mostly fruits and veggies. Increase physical activity; consider yoga/chi gong. Practice meditation or other relaxation techniques. ...Read more

Remember: No one is allergic to all healthy food choices so this means that you just haven't found the right selection of foods that work well with your system. There are those that can be allergic to exercise(this is exceptionally rare though.) It sounds like, just with an optimal diet, you just need to find the right type of exercise routine for you. Consider talking to a nutritionist and trainer. ...Read more

Dieting weakness: I would recommend a healthy high protein low carb low glycemic diet. Make sure you eat adequate protein before trying to exercise. Your weakness experienced when you exercise may be from improper intake of food before exercise. Start slow with exercise even just walking 20 minutes a day then build from there. ...Read more
