Diet plan to lose weight?

Diet plan to lose weight?

Long-term changes: The best plan is not a temporary diet but long-term changes. Sugars & simple carbs from grains esp cause weight gain. I like dr. Furhman's diet:http://www.Drfuhrman.Com/library/what-is-a-nutritarian-diet.Aspx dr. Weil has useful info: www.Huffingtonpost.Com/andrew-weil-md/carbohydrates-weight-loss_b_1937312.Html- see his "discuss that" link in his article. Exercise is also important. Good luck! ...Read more

Will supplementing a lower protein semi-vegetarian diet with whey protein powder improve immune function?

Will supplementing a lower protein semi-vegetarian diet with whey protein powder improve immune function?

Probably: This depends on sufficiency of protein in your diet but deficiency of Amino Acids is not unusual ; grows more common as we age, as most over age 60 produce insufficient hydrochloric acid, needed to digest protein. Low protein impairs immune function; whey is a superb source proven to increase glutathione, important for immune function. There are big differences in quality-see http://bit.Ly/1fpottv. ...Read more

Can whey protein drinks good for weight loss?

Why, not whey: Why are you taking whey protein? What is the problem you think you have and what do you think whey protein is going to do to improve it? How are you going to measure that improvement?

Is no carb all protein diet beneficial?

Is no carb all protein diet beneficial?

DANGEROUS, however:: A no carb diet would consist only of meat ; eggs; i don't know anyone who recommends this. It would result in many nutritional deficiencies, completely lacking vitamin c, fiber, flavonoids ; other phytonutrients essential for good health. There is lots of research showing benefits of a vegetarian diet but none on the benefits of no carb diet. However, many recommend a low carb diet. See comment:. ...Read more

Best weight loss shakes/protien shakes to lose weight with exercise and healthy eating?

There is no best: Weight loss shake as ideally you'd stick to natural unprocessed foods as best as you can. Remember that motility wise, liquids pass through the stomach more quickly than solids and may be less appetite suppressing. Remember in regards to "diet", the best one is the one that you can stick too and control your caloric intake. ...Read more

Is a 1500 calorie diet healthy and sustainable if vegetables, fruit, lean protein and in processed carbohydrates are consumed?

Weight and Activity: Yes that diet can certainly be sustained if it provides for the caloric expenditure of the individual on a daily basis. The mix of foods you choose is also very good. By "processed" i assume you mean complex carbohydrates. If you happen to be 350lbs and 6ft 4in then you are going to be rather hungry for quite some time. ...Read more

Can a diet high in soy protein smoothies help one lose weight?

Can a diet high in soy protein smoothies help one lose weight?

Not by itself: Some food plans may include protein shakes or smoothies as meal replacements, but you can't rely exclusively on these for nutrition. If you're adding the smoothies onto a diet that already contains the amount of calories and nutrients you need, you will not lose weight. It may help to review your overall food plan with a nutritionist to see how the soy smoothies fit into it. Exercise too! ...Read more

Is taking high protein140g/day low carb <150g diet safe?140pd male doing strenuous workouts for health&vanity.

Unsafe, unwise: I believe most extreme diets are unhealthy and unwise and this is a good example. I advise limiting protein to about 70 grams a day. Higher amounts puts stress on the kidneys, can cause osteoporosis and may reduce longevity- esp. if the main source is animal protein. I believe it's not wise to limit all carbs- but it is wise to limit sugars and starches. See http://tinyurl.com/hqxta7c and comment. ...Read more
