Is a high protein diet the most healthy?

Is a high protein diet the most healthy?

No: Nutrition today is quite complex. Why? The food industry has made every form of artificial food whether it be protein, fat, or carbs; available to consumers. Try to eat fresh, natural-organic foods, usually a balance of 15-25 % protein, 15-25% fat, and 50-75 complex carb---fruits. And veggies not much breads, rice or starchy
foods. Lots of water at least 2 liters a day. ...Read more

I'm on a high protein diet, is it okay to eat small portions of bread?

I'm on a high protein diet, is it okay to eat small portions of bread?

No and no: Generally this is for weight loss. The diet works either by making people so miserable that they don't eat, or loss of some muscle glycogen, or changing the cues for eating. All of these will be messed up by even small amounts of bread. Furthermore, the whole question implies trying to get out of eating less and exercising more and how to bail out on dieting. ...Read more

What to do if I have recently began a high protein diet. I am not overly strict but was wondering if my diet could include bread at any point?

Bread: In general, moderation goes a long way. (i know, the term "moderation" is so overused and hard to define. Still...). A high-protein diet combined with a small portions of bread can be a useful approach to managing weight.

I'm trying to loose my baby belly, so should I go on a high protein diet?

I'm trying to loose my baby belly, so should I go on a high protein diet?

No fads: In my opinion, you're thinking about this wrong. Diets (short term caloric restrictions) do not result in weight loss that is maintained. Subtle but sustainable changes to your diet (what you eat every day) can have life-long results. Make subtle changes to what you eat to take in fewer calories per day and increase your activity to burn more. You should not shoot to loss more than 1 pound/week. ...Read more

What will eating a low calorie, high protein diet do to the body?

Depends on the exten: Of the change from an average diet.
normally we need about 10x weight in pounds to maintain weight. 10-20% below that, you'll lose weight. If you don't do muscle stimulation (weight lifting) it will be mainly loss of muscle. 50% less than required calories could cause metabolic serious problems. Protein causes a bit more kidney work. W. normal kidneys, doesn't matter. ...Read more

Depends, Prob. Not: If your goal is to build body fat, then yes, otherwise no. Carbs block burning fat, so which are "good".

I am doing heavy exercise and taking high protein diet since last 6mths. Now my serum creatinine is 1.8, could this be normal? I have no other symptom

Good for you!: Yes. It's usual for bodybuilders to have a serum creatinine up to 2.0. When I was lifting daily, mine ran 1.6 to 1.7. The current fad for interpreting creatinines and estimating gfr's out of context is unscientific and has caused complaints in the peer-reviewed literature from pathologists and nephrologists. Keep it up. ...Read more
