I eat 1,000 calories a day I eat about 2 1/2 cups of papaya and quinoa with salmon and an apple will I gain weight from that much fruit?

I eat 1,000 calories a day I eat about 2 1/2 cups of papaya and quinoa with salmon and an apple will I gain weight from that much fruit?

Only 1 way to tell:: weight with reliable (cannot change the reading by standing on it in a variety of different ways) scale every day & record in your wt. log, Calories are the wrong issue; measured by heating water in a calorimeter. Study: https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/6656003, https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/6637761, https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/6643301, etc, on HealthTap. ...Read more

Im n 6th month of pregnancy, is it gud to take papaya fruit?

Im n 6th month of pregnancy, is it gud to take papaya fruit?

Avoid: The british journal of nutrition had an article that showed unripe or semi-ripe papaya could be unsafe in pregnancy b/c it causes uterine contractions.... In rats. So, there have been no human studies, but since papaya isn't essential to a healthy diet, we just tell women to avoid. Have an apple instead! ...Read more

Fruit is even better at fighting cancer than soursop. but how is the papaya?

Fruit is even better at fighting cancer than soursop. but how is the papaya?

These are scams: People make this stuff up as entertainment. There are no 'superfoods to fight cancer.' I wish there were -- you'd see us physicians taking advantage of them, and especially the research piranhas at the NIH and the spymasters of the world. They don't know anything that we don't. Relative protection -- eat sensibly, avoid tobacco, don't abuse alcohol, & maintain surveillance with your doctor. ...Read more

Fruit is even better at fighting cancer than soursop, how about papaya?

Fruit is even better at fighting cancer than soursop, how about papaya?

Worthless: Please forgive my frankness. If you're going to survive in a world full of sweet-talking disinformation artists, you're going to have to learn to recognize obvious untruths. There is nothing "spiritual" about believing something on emotion. Papaya is worthless as a cancer Rx and so is soursop. In science, truth can't be hidden. If either worked, the NIH piranhas would have proved it years ago. ...Read more

No such thing: There is no fruit that changes a person's genetics. The goal in life is to learn to love ourselves so that we can love others. Your skin is just perfect as it is. No food, pill, or cream will change the way god made you to be. ...Read more

Can taking fruits and fluids only be helpful in weight loss?

Not usually: Although any fad like grapefruit only for two weeks would lead to temporary weight loss, it is usually best to plan a more balanced diet with veggies, proteins, and some fruit. Focus on small portions and avoid sugars and fats. Best to change your mindset for the long term. A short sprint for sudden weight loss is not sustainable. ...Read more

Which fruit helps to lose weight ?

Which fruit helps to lose weight ?

No magic fruits...: Or pills, or wands. Try simple things like eating off smaller plates. Drink enough water to pee clear throughout the day. Eat around 1200 calories per day--much lower and metabolism stops! Takes 3500 calorie deficit to lose 1 lb. Get a fit bit and get more active. Keep a calorie diary of EVERYTHING you eat/drink. Don't drink empty calories. "8 Minutes In The Morning" & "The 3 Hour Diet" great! ...Read more
