I would like to lose weight, but it is really hard for me to keep on track eating healthy and excercising how do I l?
It is a matter of wi: You need to create strong will by setting goals and working on them slowly with small changes in your diet and exercise. To change behaviors, it takes one step at a time and keep working on it for 3-4 months. Then it will become a habit. It is a life long discipline, so you have to be patient and set modest goals like cutting out a little bit of food daily so that you can lose 1-2 lbs each month. ...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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If my blood sugar is low what do I eat to get it up and if its high what do I eat to get it down? I eat 6 small balanced meals/ snacks daily.
No relationship: Exercising and eating healthy are two separate activities related to maintaining good health. One does not have an effect on the other except that the lack of either can contribute to the development of chronic diseases. It is a common misconception that one healthy activity can neutralize the ill effects of another unhealthy activity, eg. Eating well will not compensate for inadequate sleep. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I take a daily multivitamin. In addition to fortified cereal and a generally healthy diet is it possible I'm getting too much? Do I need to stop it?
Its okay: Taking vitamins is controversial. Many physicians do not believe in it and emphasize just diet. The reality of the American diet is that even when people say its healthy, is far from healthy. My personal opinion is that is it fine to take a multivitamin but always focus on eating a diverse vegetable and fruit array, nuts and seeds and avoid anything that is prepackaged! ...Read more

Is it ok to eat a packet of crisps and two chocolate bars every day if you are very active and have a good balanced diet besides that?
Probably not: Those are not really very healthy forms of nutrition and do not have any nutritious value to your body but provide processed, pure calories. I suggest replacing them with complex carbohydrates or fruits/veggies as well as dark chocolate (>75%) for two reasons: getting some nutrition and anti-oxidants as well as lowering your blood sugar and Insulin in long term to avoid weight gain. ...Read more
