How do you get over the hump of a plateau when on a diet?

Dieting plateaus: Hitting a plateau is a normal phase of sustained weight loss. Your body needs time to adjust to a new level of metabolism. Try not to be impatient. Just recognize that this normal phase is where so many people give up. Don't be one of them. If you just stick with your new habits, your weight loss will resume when your body is ready. You will hit another plateau also somewhere down the road. ...Read more

Okay so i get a lot of yeast infections what can i get over the counter for it ?.. any diet you could recommend?

"Azole" treatment: Diet won't help. If vaginal yeast has been professionally diagnosed and new sympotms are typical, use one of the many over-the-counter vaginal yeast treatments. Look for active ingredient ending in "azole" (miconazole, teraconazole, & others). Or talk with your doc about taking fluconazole (Diflucan®) by mouth once a week to prevent it. Also discuss possible underlying causes, especially diabetes. ...Read more

What kind of diet maybe helpful for bad liver, they told me to get on a diet, what foods should I avoid?

What kind of diet maybe helpful for bad liver, they told me to get on a diet, what foods should I avoid?

What's your problem?: I suspect you may have fatty liver but if not, sorry, my bad! if fatty liver is the case, the best diet would be one that is poor in fat, especially saturated one and rich in fiber that catches and eliminates it from the intestines. I give my patients a good rule - anything that is white or made out of white is full of fat or can easily be converted into it - eggs, milk (whole), flour, sugar, rice. ...Read more

We now know that ca++ stinulates gastrin, a hormone that stimulates acid prodcution. The modern attack is on the systems that produce gastric acid, the focus of treatment like ranitidine, famotidine, omeprazole. Avoid foods causing dyspepsia. ...Read more

I'm on a diet doing well on it.  At night though sometimes i get really hungry.  Is it okay to have a snack or should I just wait til the morning.

Tough, isn't it?: Try to distract yourself by drinking some herbal tea or ice water. Get up and take a walk. Try to delay your snacking by distracting yourself. If you must have something, make it a healthy selection - and try to avoid your 'trigger foods' that will lead you into trouble! ...Read more
