Healthy Menu Ideas For Toddlers Snacks Fruit And Vegetables Sample
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
Real food: Mostly veggies, with one-two servings (small servings) of fresh fruit per day. Real food is better than a supplement - avoid canned veggies and fruits - all the fiber is boiled out of them and many have added salt/sugar. Fresh is best - frozen is next. Also, skip the salty and high fat toppings (like ranch dressing) for the veggies -. ...Read more
If I eat lettuce, raw carrots, steamed broccoli and beets, grated cheese and one piece of meat daily for breakfast lunch and dinner will I lose weighr?
Depends On A Lot: That all depends on your current weight, body fat to muscle ratio, amount you eat and total daily calories ingested, your activity level and overall basal metabolic rate. One thing for sure, you're on the right track in terms of WHAT you eat, although you didn't specify what KINDS of meat you eat or if you ever might eat some vegetable sources of protein.I think that just might cover it. ...Read more
Can a breastfeeding mother do a juice cleanse? Fresh juiced fruit and vegetable juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner?
Sure.: It doesn't sound like it would have adequate calories for the woman, but should be fairly nutrient dense (watch out for too much sugar), but not harmful to the baby. Sometimes babies can be affected by the foods their mothers eat (i.E: get constipated babies if moms eat broccoli, or drink milk). ...Read more

Is a 1500 calorie diet healthy and sustainable if vegetables, fruit, lean protein and in processed carbohydrates are consumed?
Weight and Activity: Yes that diet can certainly be sustained if it provides for the caloric expenditure of the individual on a daily basis. The mix of foods you choose is also very good. By "processed" i assume you mean complex carbohydrates. If you happen to be 350lbs and 6ft 4in then you are going to be rather hungry for quite some time. ...Read more
My daily breakfast is two slices of whole wheat bread with crunchy peanut butter and fresh blueberries. Is it a good breakfast to eat daily?
Don't have the rest: of your history to know for sure if it's good. As long as you're not allergic to blueberries, wheat, or peanuts (common allergies that can manifest subclinically). Also as long as it's not GMO wheat, peanuts. Usually the first meal of the day should be the largest (since you can burn it off during the day) and hold you well past lunch.I would increase the protein component.Sounds more like lunch. ...Read more
Carrots: Eat the carrots. Instead of the ranch, go bare, or use yogurt to make it. ...Read more
To lose weight diet rich in veggies, sprouts,beans,legumes,fruits,1 handful nuts,cottage cheese,whey protein & limited amount of whole grains is good?
Exercising at least 1.5 hrs/day. Eating whole grains, fruits, vegetables w/few processed foods. Moderate portions. Why am i showing minimal weight loss.
Too many calories: Minimal weight loss despite exercise and eating a healthy diet is most likely due to consuming beyond the calorie limit required for your body to burn fat. You have to eat about 3500 calories less than what you burn over 7 days to lose just 1 pound! Track your calories by weighing and measuring your food and using the label information. Calories from beverages add up quickly too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Low starch diet: I don't know if that is true but you are describing a low-starch diet, and that is generally healthy. These days i would make sure that the egg, milk, yogurt and meat are organic or else they will come from animals fed gmo foods and have hormones. My favorite overall diet is dr.

Sample feeding schedule or menu for a 7mo who eats fruits and veggies? She eats a jar of fruit in the AM & a jar of veggies PM w/25 oz of formula/day
It doesn't matter: Aside from not feeding anything at night, it doesn't matter what the feeding schedule is. At 6-9 months, a baby gets most of his nutrition from breast milk or formula (don't need to count the total ounces). Solid foods are for fun, for experience, and for the variety. 2-4 oz food at 3 times a day works fine. Using a high chair, and feeding at the dining table at meal times, helps form good habits. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
