I am a vegetarian and only eat whole grain foods but have been told today I am prediabetic.  Is there anything else I can do to keep from being diabe?

Eggs and cheese: You must reduce your carbohydrate intake. Eat plenty of chesse and eggs at every meal (or stop being a vegetarian and eat meats) and strictly reduce your carbs. Otherwise, you will definitely continue to develop diabetes. I have helped many patients reduce their chances of getting diabetes by putting them on low carb diets. www.mdwellnessmd.com. ...Read more

Friend is vegetarian but wants to eat low-carb(under 120ish per day). What are some healthy food options for her? Thank you very much for your time!

Atkins Diet maybe: A low-carb diet limits grains, starchy vegetables and fruit — and emphasizes foods high in protein and fat. Many types of low-carb diets exist. Each diet has varying restrictions on the types and amounts of carbohydrates you can eat. Not all low carb diets are healthy nor equal in value. ...Read more

My daughter is 15, and a vegetarian. I am worried about her not getting enough protein! She is 5 foot 7 and weighs about 110 pounds. Any foods to eat?

My daughter is 15, and a vegetarian. I am worried about her not getting enough protein! She is 5 foot 7 and weighs about 110 pounds. Any foods to eat?

Many veggie sources: Her body mass index is 18, which is on the low side. She probably needs a few more calories in her diet, and good quality protein from things like tofu, tempeh, quinoa, whole grains, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds. Most western diets, even vegetarian meet protein requirements per day. See a doctor if she loses more weight, or you or she are concerned. ...Read more

I am 61, female, vegetarian. Eat a lot of Morningstar vege protein food with Boost drink supplement & vitamins. Can I get adequate nutrition this way?

No Boost.: There's lots of very tasty protein in many Morningstar products. You do not need to boost in addition. You can get what you need from better tasting food and freshly prepared fruits, grains, and vegetables, properly prepared. High protein diets are not healthy even if due to veggie sources (although High veg protein diets are better than high animal protein diets when we're talking risk of cancer). ...Read more

Probably not: It depends on your other risk factors but you are doing great with your lifestyle choices.

Could my stomach became smaller because of vegetarianism and small portions of food? When I eat "too much" (bigger portion) i always have nausea

Could my stomach became smaller because of vegetarianism and small portions of food? When I eat "too much" (bigger portion) i always have nausea

Bodies accomodate.: Our bodies become used to habitual patterns. If you have been eating small portions of food for a while, your system may go on overload when you eat a larger amount of food. It works the same way for other repeating behaviors. If you go to bed at a particular time, that is usually the time when you feel sleepy. If you eat meals on a schedule, your body sends out hunger cues at that time. ...Read more
