What do you think of The Virgin Diet and decreasing sugar and what would be a minimal sugar have per day to see possible weight loss? AmHypothroid?
Fewer calories: I don't know the details of the Virgin diet but it appears to be a variation on a low carbohydrate diet. Weight loss occurs when you take in fewer calories than you burn up. There is no magic to this formula. Since fats tend to increase satiety more than carbohydrates, by eating more fats and less carbs, most people end up eating fewer calories and therefore lose weight. ...Read more

If I have a low iron count, what tests should be done to figure out the cause? Dietary intake should have been sufficient (lots of meat and greens)
Whoa: I'm going to assume that someone is not using the term "iron count" as a synonym for hemoglobin / hematocrit, but that you have an actual low measured serum iron and high iron binding capacity. If not, other causes of anemia must be sought. If you do, check for GI blood loss unless your monthly loss is very heavy. Contrary to "pop" disinformation, greens aren't a source of iron. Glad UR proactive. ...Read more

I only eat vegetables and I'm afraid I might end up with a deficiency, or borderline. so my question is, can you name the 5-8 veggies to eat?

I usually recommend that anyone who is a vegetarian educate themselves thoroughly because it is easy to miss out on key nutrients otherwise. ...Read more
Low carb diet: Counting net carbs is the correct way to monitor carbohydrate intake, which includes total carbs minus fiber and minus sugar alcohols (if present).
