Expert opinions? Which has been proven to be the healthiest: a low-carb, hi protein diet or a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet?

Expert opinions? Which has been proven to be the healthiest: a low-carb, hi protein diet or a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet?

Ideas vary: Different folks here will make different recommendations. Things seem to be shaking out recently in favor of the mediterranean diet, which is none-of-the-above. Especially, don't think that diet is so magic that it will make it unnecessary to exercise, otherwise live a healthy lifestyle, or ignore your personal physician's advice about your special health needs. Glad you're proactive. ...Read more

I am a vegetarian and only eat whole grain foods but have been told today I am prediabetic.  Is there any thing 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

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'm a vegetaian, about 8 years. I'm not over weight, I do eat microwavable foods and cheese. Am I at risk of getting diabetes? My grandmothers had it.

I'm a vegetaian, about 8 years. I'm not over weight, I do eat microwavable foods and cheese. Am I at risk of getting diabetes? My grandmothers had it.

Probably not: It depends on your other risk factors but you are doing great with your lifestyle choices. You can't avoid genetics but if you can keep your weight normal, you probably will not get diabetes. The main thing is to catch it early so make sure you see your pcp for regular check ups. ...Read more
