Not necessarily: Most everything in moderation. Fruits are part of a healthy diet. If they take the place of more "conventional" desserts, more power to you. Again, you just need to be aware of not overdoing it. Even healthy food, in too large a portion, is not good for you, as it can readily cause weight gain. ...Read more
Definebadbarandlow: There are different bars, with varying levels of sugar and additives. Can you get energy from eating a chocolate bar? Yes, short term anyway. Can that be a pick-me-up when your energy is low? Yes. But if you're hypoglycemic pre diabetic or not eating a balanced diet, it's a short term solution to a long term problem and ultimately won't help. If by bad you mean unhealthy, not in moderation. ...Read more

What is the best time 2 eat fruit?Is it true that eating fruit right after a meal causes acidity?
No single answer but: Some nutritionists feel morning is the best time to eat fruit & that it is best digested on an empty stomach or with dairy, nuts & seeds or greens. These theories are based on the process of how we digest. Many say melons esp. Are best on an empty stomach. See http://www.Centerholistic.Com/index.Php/health/food-combining and see my comments.

Used to eat breakfast but in 7th grade after running my stomach seems to do not digest well breakfast I can eat more then a banana why is that?
Exercise after eat: Kathia, very common. Some of us, me included have a hard time exercising after we have eaten. We think that the issue is blood flow. After we eat, blood flow increases to digestive tract. If we exercise after we eat, that blood goes to muscles and not as much to digestion. This was the old theory of muscle cramps, don't swim for 1hr after you eat. So eat lightly before exercise/more after ...Read more
Is it bad to eat a whole mango for a one off. Also is it bad to suck the mango pit/seed and is it bad to eat a tiny bit of the skin?
No. No. No.: People eat one mango at a time, the entire mango. Here in California, we buy them by the box, which is about 18-24 mangoes. Nibbling all the good stuff off the pit is what we do. A few people like a little bit of the skin for flavor; most people just toss the skin. As long as a person is not allergic to mango flesh, skin, or sap, it's fine to eat a mango. ...Read more
Is it bad to eat 2-3 hard boiled eggs a day? I love them & eat them as a source of protein. Also eat approx 3 cans tuna a week? Is mercury a problem?
Sort of yes to both: It is better to have a mixed diet with seasonal fruits and vegetables. Boiled eggs are fine, as long as your cholesterol is normal. Mercury in tuna is a concern, but depends on the source of tuna and it is nor feasible to provide an opinion without testing the contents of the tuna cans. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine ...Read more

individual: Bowel habits are specific to an individual and should not be manipulated to meet some definition of 'normal'.

Yes: Gas still forms in the GI tract even with light eating. Try taking simethicone 1/2 hour after meals and at bedtime to prevent gas build-up.
