What's the difference of overeating sugary/fatty foods and overeating healthy foods with same amoutn of calories?

What's the difference of overeating sugary/fatty foods and overeating healthy foods with same amoutn of calories?

Metabolism: Not all calories are created equal. The body metabolizes high sugar foods, including alcohol, very quickly into fat if these calories are not needed to sustain physical exercise. Most of us do not burn the amount of calories we eat. Unless we are in control of our eating. Do replace your junk food with healthy foods with the same # of calories. See for yourself. I bet you will lose some lbs. ...Read more

Is eating grease in moderation bad for you? Despite eating healthy for the most part.

Natural Origin, No!: The idea the saturated fats were unhealthy was dishonestly promoted by ancel keys, starting in 1953. This was his "theory", though the evidence available to him contradicted his theory. So what did he do? He cherry picked the data - fraudulant, & did not look at other factors.

Healthful eating of foods that lack processing and ingredients that you cannot pronounce along with a daily exercise program assists. The mind has to be nourished with new information, achievements and assisting others to be strong. Smile and laugh often and keep your mind limber and open. ...Read more

Eat 7 portions of fruit daily, plenty of vegetables, eat pretty healthy and exercise intense 4 to 5 days a week, could get diabtes because of glucose?

Eat 7 portions of fruit daily, plenty of vegetables, eat pretty healthy and exercise intense 4 to 5 days a week, could get diabtes because of glucose?

Unlikely but...: While fruit contains sugars as glucose and fructose, the fiber in fruit reduces its effects on raising blood sugar. In the context of an otherwise healthy diet and exercise you probably won't get diabetes, though it would be wise to consume mostly lower-glycemic fruits like berries, cherries, apples and citrus while minimizing melons and tropical fruits that tend to have a higher glycemic index. ...Read more

What multivitamin is side effect free ? What whole food multivitamin is good for yeast infection and if our diet is not including fruits and vegies ??

Nothing for Sure: There is no multivitamin, supplement or medication that can be said to be side effect free for sure for everyone. You could have adequate levels of one of the vitamins & get toxicity or be allergic to an additive. That said look for a USP certified vitamin & men generally should avoid iron. We over supplement! For yeast infections, can try a probiotic or live culture yogurts. Good luck. ...Read more

Is eating corn flakes and yogurt good for healthy diet at breakfast ?

Is eating corn flakes and yogurt good for healthy diet at breakfast ?

Not corn flakes!: I don't consider corn flakes a healthy diet choice, esp. If not organic as they are genetically modified and contain bt toxin . Corn flakes are a great example of a high-carb food with low nutrient density that increases risk of obesity & diabetes. Yogurt is fine but should also be organic. Organic eggs are a good choice, but fruits, veggies, nuts & beans are good choices too. See my comment:. ...Read more

Some lay people tout eating fruits first before the main meal. Does putting sweet or salt-based in dif order or in whatever order matter to the health?

Some lay people tout eating fruits first before the main meal. Does putting sweet or salt-based in dif order or in whatever order matter to the health?

Gas: The reason why you're supposed to eat fruit before a meal is because of its transit time. I moves through the gut much faster than the rest of the food. Consequently, if you eat it after the other food, it sit in the gut and ferment - causing gas and bloating. Otherwise, the order of salt/sweet does not matter. ...Read more

Can you tell me healthy foods to give my 3 yr old child for main meals trhoughout the day and as snacks.?

Normal eating: For a toddler is one good meal a day with 5-6 small snacks. Toddlers should eat the same foods you eat, except that they do not need to have low-calorie or low-fat products. Try to include the foods he or she prefers. Those preferences tend to change every few months and most children do well, even if they are picky eaters. For more specific recommendations you can see a dietitian. ...Read more

I am hitting the scale at 145kg and am concerned about my health. I eat healthy on my main meals by eating low calorie but I am always hungry which makes me cheat by eating junk food. is there anything that can assist to suppress my hunger?

Eat healthy fats: Eating low calorie meals can make you feel hungry. If you can increase the amount of unsaturated fats in your diet, nuts, salmon, avocado, then it will help keep you feeling full. In addition to diet, exercise is also important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Another reason for feeling hungry is having diabetes. Please see a doctor if you are always hungry, thirsty, or constantly urinating. ...Read more

Is eating two meals a day healthy for a 31 year old male who weights 160 pounds ?

Is eating two meals a day healthy for a 31 year old male who weights 160 pounds ?

That depends: Hi. Not if they're egg mcmuffins and big macs. If you eat meals consisting of HEALTHY food twice daily, that's fine. It's utter nonsense to think you need 3 meals/day. If you're only hungry for two, eat two. However WHAT you eat should be healthy food: whole grains, nuts and seeds, fruits and veggies, nonfat dairy, olive and canola oil, lean meats; best prepared at home. NO fast food. Good luck! ...Read more

Do health consequences result from eating just one full meal a day? If so, what are they?

Not good: The available research indicates that a one-meal strategy is not the best way to lose weight or maintain a desired weight, and it may have some negative effects. People consuming only one meal per day had higher blood pressure and blood sugar levels than people eating three meals per day. A weaker immune system gives a person greater susceptibility to all kinds of illnesses. ...Read more
