What is the possible risk/consequence of eating nearly every hour if you only eat nutritional foods, like raw veggies - cooked squash- fruit-tofu..?

What is  the possible risk/consequence of eating nearly every hour if you only eat nutritional foods, like raw veggies - cooked squash- fruit-tofu..?

Lack of a balanced life: Given all the wonderful things to do in this world, one should not try to eat something every hour. While this kind of behavior is not dangerous, it would certainly interfere with leading a healthy balanced life of work, play, exercise, sleep and eating. I would be worried about underlying anxierty/control issues if eating every hour would become one of my patient's priorities in life, and want to investigate further into why that patient would even want to try such a thing. ...Read more

Is it still binge eating disorder if the "binges" are happening multiple days a week? Or every meal is a copious amount of food & feeling too full

Is it still binge eating disorder if the "binges" are happening multiple days a week? Or every meal is a copious amount of food & feeling too full

Usually yes: One should be eating only the amount needed each day that matches the number of calories she uses up each day (or eat less than that amount, if wanting to lose weight). Eating large amounts of food at one meal is binge eating if one already gets plenty of food or calories that day. Eating large amounts at one time, because that's the only meal she gets that day, would be considered normal. ...Read more

11 week pregnancy. Can my wife eat a grilled meat product (beef) such as steak ? If yes what is the limitations ? Also the recommended cooking method

Yes!: Beef is a good protein source, and grilling reduces fat, besides making it delicious! that might be important if she is still nauseous. But the minimal impurities induced by grilling meat are not of concern unless all she eats is grilled beef! what she needs to watch is consumption of certain kinds of fish (mercury). A proper balanced diet and prenatal vit. Are great. No alcohol or tobacco please! ...Read more
