Is Papaya Fruit Helpful In Weight Reduction
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?

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
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
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

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

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
