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?

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

Can a 430lbs men go on a 1000 calorie diet by having 2 meal replacements and a very low calorie dinner all this with type 2 diabetes?

Possible: I recommend you do this under the supervision of your physician to monitor your electrolytes and adjust your diabetes medications as you start losing weight. Remember the best diet is one you can maintain for life so unless there is a medical reason to do something this drastic, i think you should talk to your doctor and come up with a sustainable plan.

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)

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?

Why limit yourself: to 5 to 8 vegetables. Go for every color in the rainbow when it comes to eating fruits and vegetables. However, you will need to augment your diet further if you are a vegetarian. 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

Need help when on a low carb diet should I be counting net carbs or total carbohydrates?

Need help when on a low carb diet should I be counting net carbs or total carbohydrates?

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). But better yet, i just recommend eliminating sweets and starches - simple and very, very effective. One should be realistic, though, and look carefully at those two words. Many people tend to sneak high glycemic carbs into the diet by incorrect choices. ...Read more
