You will hit another plateau also somewhere down the road. ...Read more

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'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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Start easy-: FIrst is to change what she drinks. NEVER any sugary drinks. That includes soda, Kool-Aid, fruit juice, juice boxes. NONE, ZERO. She can only drink water or skim milk. It's ok to use flavored water or the flavor enhancers to try and encourage her to drink water. Second thing for now is no seconds at meals. Prepare a plate of food, bring it to table (no eating in front of TV, etc), and that's it. ...Read more

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.

Why do I get a lot of spit in my mouth when i eat something with flour? Is this normal? I have been on a diet without flour a while. Could this be why
?SensitiveNot normal: This may be a sign of gluten sensitivity (or a least wheat sensitivity). When one is sensitive to a food ; eats it regularly they are less likely to notice a reaction; after avoiding the food the reaction is more obvious.
