Can I get warts from eating food? I made sauerkraut with a friend who had lots of warts on her hands and she did not wear gloves.

Can I get warts from eating food? I made sauerkraut with a friend who had lots of warts on her hands and she did not wear gloves.

No: Warts are caused by a type of human papilloma virus. Warts on the hands are common warts. They can be spread around the body by picking them. It is not usual to spread them to another person. You will not get warts from eating the sauerkraut. However, it would be a good plan for her to wear gloves.

Asthma symptoms aggravated after eating raw onions. Cooked onions ok. Vinegar and sauerkraut can cause symptoms. Any other foods to avoid? Allergy?

Asthma symptoms aggravated after eating raw onions. Cooked onions ok. Vinegar and sauerkraut can cause symptoms. Any other foods to avoid? Allergy?

Not necessarily: It sounds like these acidic and irritating foods may be just irritating your airways. This doesn't necessarily mean that you're allergic to them, although you should probably still avoid them or pre-treat with your asthma inhaler prior to indulging. See an allergist to be properly tested to ensure this isn't an allergy that is emerging and proceed as they suggest.

Can you tell me how much weight can I lose eating 900 calories a day?

Can you tell me how much weight can I lose eating 900 calories a day?

Note:: Restricting calories below your base metabolic rate triggers starvation mode for the body which causes you to overeat when food is available. You may lose a little weight at first but then the body will try to store fat to fight starvation--you'll gain it back and it will be harder to lose. Best to work with a nutritionist/health coach on a life plan for steady healthy sustained weight management.

Can you tell me how much weight can I lose eating 500 calories a day for 30-40 days?

Too low calories: You should not go below 1000 calories a day. You need to exercise also. You need to burn off 3500 more calories than you take in. To loose 1 pound a safe weight loss is 1 - 2 pounds a week. Good luck.

How much weight can I lose from not eating for 3 weeks?

How much weight can I lose from not eating for 3 weeks?

3500CALS/1 LB: Depends on your present weight and bmr. Say for example if you need 2000 cals to maintain your weight (your bmr+clories burnt by daily activity)if you starve you will be minus 2000x7=14000 cals divide by 3500 equals 4.So 3weeks is 12lbs so you will loose 12 lbs of real body weight you can calculate similarly for other daily calories requirements for others.

Can you tell me how much weight can I lose in 8 weeks by swimming and healthy eating?

Safely: One to two pounds a week is a safe weight. If you averaged 1.5 pound a week weight loss, I would say you're doing well. Any more than 2 pounds a week can be dangerous and is not advised. Healthy eating should include protein, fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains.

Can you tell me how much weight will I lose in a week by just eating 1 meal per day?

How big a meal?: You need to establish a negative caloric balance by reducing your intake and increasing the caloric burn by exercise. It is better to eat small meals 2-3 times a day, than one big meal.

Can you tell me how much weight will I lose eating 600-800 calories a day?

Can you tell me how much weight will I lose eating 600-800 calories a day?

Restricting calories: Below base metabolic rate (wt in pounds x 10) triggers starvation mode for the body causing you to overeat when food is available. You may lose a little weight at first but then the body will try to store fat to fight starvation. You'll gain it back and it will be harder to lose. Best to work with a nutritionist/health coach on a life plan for steady healthy sustained weight management.

If I'm eating roughly 70-80 carbs a day, how much weight could I lose weekly?

If I'm eating roughly 70-80 carbs a day, how much weight could I lose weekly?

Unanswerable: Unfortunately there is too much missing from your question or too many variables to give you an accurate answer. It would all depend on how many calories you ingest, what you weigh, what exercises you are doing, etc. But, knowing of the need to limit carbohydrate calories is a good start.

Can you tell me how to lose a lot of weight and how much weight will I lose it 2 weeks eating only 800 calories a day?

Can you tell me how to lose a lot of weight and how much weight will I lose it 2 weeks eating only 800 calories a day?

Varies.: 3500 calories is 1 lbs. Your metabolism and the exercise you do daily will add up the calories the body will burn daily. If during exercise you burn 300 calories which is walking 3 miles. And your body burns 1400 calories in metabolism daily. You will have 1700 calories burned daily. 800-1700 = 900 calories burned daily = 4 days to lose 1 pound. Which is 4 lbs in 16 days or about 2 weeks.

Can you tell me how I could lose a lot of weight and how much weight will I lose it 2 weeks eating only 800 calories a day?

3500 calories is 1lb: Pounds are lost by losing 3500 calories. So in a day if you eat 800 calories and your body burns 1800 calories through exercise and basal metabolism, you lose 1000 calories a day. Takes 3.5 days to lose 1 pound. So it depends on the calories your body burns. Varies by metabolism and exercise. You would lose 4lbs in 2 weeks. This does not include water weight loss.

How much weight would u lose without eating for three weeks?

How much weight would u lose without eating for three weeks?

Fasting and Death: Hi this is an interesting question. I strongly would advise against conducting this experiment. Going more than a week without some nutrition can put you at significant risk of dying. I would hesitate to guess how much weight one would lose given this scenario, but would caution that you may lose your life if you conduct this experiment. Weight loss is hard work. But, it is worth it!

I have been eating one meal a day for about 8 months and running daily. How can I increase how much eat while continue to lose weight?

I have been eating one meal a day for about 8 months and running daily. How can I increase how much eat while continue to lose weight?

Eat and lose weight: Eating one meal a day will actually make it harder to lose weight. That will actually slow your metabolism down. Eating 3, or even 5 small meals a day is much better believe it or not. You can have 4 small meals/snacks throughout the day and have a high protein & vegetable meal at the end of the day. The frequent meals tends to speed up your metabolism (just don't over eat). Keep up the exercise!
