Sauerkraut And Weight Loss
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

I am vegan, and trying to lose weight esspecially in my lower belly. I'm very confused on how much peanut butter I should be eating...Any suggestions?
Limit peanut butter: Nuts are a healthy part any diet, but peanuts are not strictly a nut. An eight year harvard study showed that the women who ate the most nuts gained the least weight. It turns out that one does not absorb all the fat in raw nuts because it is tied up in the fiber. However when turned into a butter, you absorb more fat. So eat nuts, but focus on raw almonds & walnuts, not peanuts and peanut butter. ...Read more
Weight loss: I wouldn't think of a detox or cleanse as a way to lose weight in a healthy way. The 'detox' uses the idea that your body is full of toxins when in fact your organs are responsible for eliminating extraneous substances. If you go on any deprivation diet, you will probably lose a little weight, just because you are restricting calories. It is very likely you will regain this weight. ...Read more
Inches, not Pounds:
Liposuction will change you in inches more than in pounds. It works best for localized deposits of fat that don’t respond to conventional diet and exercise. The correction from surgery is permanent.
But since you asked about weight, the answer depends on how heavy you are to start with. The most I have removed in one surgery is about 22 lbs, or 11 liters of fat. Think of 5 - 2 liter pop bottles.. ...Read more
