Is The Use Of Ginger Ale Good For Low Caloie Diets
Human studies suggests that 1g daily of ginger may be effective for nausea and vomiting in pregnant women when used for short periods (no longer than 4 days). Several studies have found that ginger is better than placebo in relieving morning sickness. In a small study of 30 pregnant women with severe vomiting, those who took 1 gram of ginger every day for 4 days reported more relief from vomiting than those who took placebo. In a larger study of 70 pregnant women with nausea and vomiting, those who received a similar dosage of ginger felt less nauseous and did not vomit as much as those who received placebo. Pregnant women should ask their doctor before taking ginger, and should be careful not take more ...Read more
Depends!: 1000 calories per day is probably fine, but if you are training in very vigorous exercise, you may require a higher calorie intake. Be certain to hydrate yourself well. And consider increasing your calorie intake slightly, particularly if you get lightheaded or feel very tired. Talk to your provider about any symptoms. Good luck.
It's all relative.: For very low calorie diets, potatoes are relatively high calorie [1 cup of diced potato is 55 calories] compared to 1 serving of turnips or even better deal cooked radishes/daikon. But potatoes are a good deal compared to 1/2 cup of white rice [120 calories], 1 cup of noodles, bread or bagels. So it depends on how low you're trying to go.See 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: In many cases the low cal diet can signal to the thyroid that you are in starvation mode thus preventing weight loss. A surer way to lose weight is by eating a meditteranean style diet minus any grains containing gluten and including low glycemic foods. Eating 3 meals and 2 snacks may show more results than calorie counting. Let me know how you do.
A bit o'carbs: Choose something like a granola bar to provide your body with some carbs for the workout. Grain cereals like grape nuts, a whole grain bagel or a banana are other good choices. Not a large amount though right before your workout because it will be sloshing around in your stomach and also it will draw too much blood to your gut rather than to your muscles for the workout.See 1 more doctor answer

Need a consult: It looks like your question is a request for a personal consult with advice for your specific situation.

Not harmful: You can find lots of claims of adverse effects and even horror stories about artificial sweeteners on line and elsewhere. But there is no scientific evidence they are harmful.
Yes: By eating more fresh fruits and especially vegetables which are lower in carbohydrates compared to processed foods such as high calories such as cakes, you could lose weight by taking in less calories and feeling fuller. Calorie restriction or portion control is another way to lose weight. However, the smaller size of what youre eating may not be as satisfying as having more fruits and vegetables.See 1 more doctor answer

I am a 5'7" 158 pound female. I'm looking to lose 10 pounds. Is a 1600 calorie diet good for that?
Maybe: Losing weight is a matter of using up more calories than you take in. Exercise is a major component and should be balanced by modulating your diet. Eat 3 small meals, give up all snacks and sugar-containing soft drinks, walk or run several miles a day, and engage in toning exercises and you will lose weight.See 1 more doctor answer
More than you think: The health benefits of low-calorie diets have a lot of science behind them. Recent animal research has shown that low calorie intake over an extended period of time decreases metabolic turn-over, possibly increasing life expectancy. Also, a new study out of denmark showed improved arthritis scores in patients who went on a <1200 cal/day diet over 4 months. Eat healthy!See 1 more doctor answer
Loosing weight too: fast can be dangerous. See your doc first, and then consider lower carb and higher protein intake. Exercise daily if possible, even brisk walking 20-30 minutes is helpful. Above all, like yourself and others no matter what the scale says. Peace and good health.
