If you are not happy about your skin, see a dermatologist to define any abnormality and determine the best way to correct any problems. Don't smoke or abuse drugs. Eat your vegetables. Get exercise & sleep. Don't get sunburned. Multivitamins are greatly over-used to the profit of those who sell them. ...Read more

I am obese and want to start dieting and exerciseing. First i want to detox my body, how long can I safely try the chicken broth & water diet

Realize: You can detoxify without exposing yourself to suboptimal nutrition. If you must "detox" focus on unprocessed, minimally cooked fruits and vegetables. But if you must go for with this broth detox, you should review this with your doctor. While persons have been known to be able survive for many weeks without food(as long as water is available) not every one tolerates this well. ...Read more

Starting a new healty lifestyle eating exercise etc,5'7" 220lbs now, want to get to a healthy weight and keep it that way.Advice?

Exercise etc.: Good thinking. For optimal exercise i would recommend you see a trainer if you have time and can afford it. Go to Body Mass Index (BMI) on the web and see where you are. You need to gradually get down to about a BMI of 25. Also go online to "NuVal" and plan your diet through that program. Take your time losing weight or you will quickly reagin it if you don't. ...Read more

Hello. I want to improve my health with a heathy diet and an activ lifestyle.  What kind of diet and activities do you suggest?

Congratulations: On choosing a healthier lifestyle. Most successful people in this group start with one or two small changes and continue adding. They may start walking or running a bit more each day. They may substitute a salad for a full meal or fruit for a snack. These changes add up and aren't as difficult to track or manage everyday. Mine is less red meat and substituting chicken or fish. Good luck. ...Read more

How to cure acne? Is changing the way you eat like trying to eat lots of fruits and vegetables and water a good idea?

Not curable, but...: Acne is a cruel disease and this is compounded by telling victims it's from "bad diet" or other lifestyle issues. The link to dairy is a minor factor; others even less so. If 5% topical benzoyl peroxide 2x/day hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength meds. Fruits ; veggies are helpful for other reasons. ...Read more
