Is cheese healthy food and what kind of cheese I should eat to be healthy?

Go low fat: Cheese is not considered one of the "healthier" foods by many because often it is high fat and/or high salt, high calories.. Cheese can be high in saturated fat and cholesterol. That being said, there are cheeses that are made with skim or low fat milk which are healthier than others. Excellent source of good quality protein, calcium (cottage cheese is not a good dairy source of calcium though). ...Read more

What foods should you eat to maintain a healthy diet, and what is the exact amount of food should you eat daily?

What foods should you eat to maintain a healthy diet, and what is the exact amount of food should you eat daily?

Protein & vegetables: A rough guide to determining the amount of calories the average adult should consume daily is about 10x your weight. But using calories alone to gauge intake is not enough. Essentially I have found that small meals of mostly protein and above-ground vegetables maintains ideal body weight, chemistry and hormone levels. Individual genetics, activity, and medical conditions influence this greatly. ...Read more

Doctors always say to have a healthy and balanced diet but what is a healthy balanced diet what kind of foods should I eat am 98 pounds and 5'4 ?

Eat more protein: 98 pounds is a little too slim for 5'4", even for a teenager. Make sure you are getting in 60 grams or more of complete protein (animal source or from soybeans), lots of fresh vegetables and fruits, and avoid foods without nutritional value (like candy, snack foods, white bread). Always eat your protein first if you get full early. ...Read more

In what way can a pure vegetarian teen maintain a healthy diet. Meaning, what should he eat and not eat etc.?

Your choice?: If this is a lifestyle being forced on you by your parents, you are well within your rights to refuse. The health benefits have resisted scientific demonstration, but the moral statement is powerful. Focus on fruits, grains and vegetables, avoid empty calories / junk, get plenty of protein (soy's good), and you must supplement (iron, b12, vitamin d, iodine, others). ...Read more

I heard a lot about a diet to eat only food like meat or fish and strongly recommended not to eat fruit or bread or potatoes anb so on. Is it healthy?

Low carbohydrate : You might be referring to an atkins-type or low-carbohydrate diet. People do lose weight with this approach, but it may not be sustainable as a whole-life practice. In reality, you need lean protein, plenty of vegetables & fruits, healthy fats and cut down on processed foods like sweets, breads, etc. If you are insulin-resistant, you want any carbohydrates to be complex, & more slowly absorbed. ...Read more

What's so bad about potato chips? Is it okay if I eat them as a part of a balanced healthy vegan diet?

What's so bad about potato chips? Is it okay if I eat them as a part of a balanced healthy vegan diet?

I know ....: How can something that tastes so good be so bad for you! The two big problems are fat and salt! There are 150 calories in a single serving bag of potato chips, & nearly 100 of them (2/3!) are fat. The fat in them can contribute to common problems of oily skin & acne such as you report. But I don't believe in a total ban of anything that you really enjoy: eat a single serving bag 1-2 times/week:) ...Read more

Hard to answer...: ...In 400 characters, so I am going to give you a link that i think answers this nicely: http://www.Eatright.Org/public/content.Aspx?Id=6442471055 but let me also summarize and say that, for the most part, if you shop the periphery of a grocery store, i.e., down the produce aisle, and then down the meet counter, you're mostly getting real food.
