My mom has low protein; please suggest some vegetables and fruit diets for gud no of protein ; her age is 37 yrs....

Vegetarian diet?: I am not sure why she has low protein--from poor intake or disease process, so this should be evaluated by her doc. In term of diet--i assume she is a vegetarian? Beans, nuts, and coconuts, asparagus, kales, spinanaches are good sources of protein. Avocados are excellent as well. If she can eat eggs, eggwhite is very high protein as well. Consult doc/nutritionist. Good luck. ...Read more

Are low carb diets healthier than diets with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and lean proteins?

Are low carb diets healthier than diets with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and lean proteins?

Not necessarily: There is no single diet that is best for everyone. I believe it is wise to minimize sugars and simple starches, but i believe a diet with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and low-fat proteins is healthier than a strict low carb diet (which is relatively high in fat and protein). See http://drrandybaker.Com/2013/01/20/diet-and-health/ for my essay on the pros and cons of various diets. ...Read more

Is eating too much fruit (7-9 servings a day) along with a balanced diet of vegetables, proteins, and whole grains, considered too much?

Too much for what?: It sounds great ! i want to imagine your portions of fruits as kind of moderate or small and balanced...It is only too much effort for any average person to even imagine such a great and healthy diet ! good job. ...Read more

Is feeling somewhat hungry a normal part of dieting even if you include plenty of lean protein, good fats, vegetables, fresh fruit, fiber, etc.?

Is feeling somewhat hungry a normal part of dieting even if you include plenty of lean protein, good fats, vegetables, fresh fruit, fiber, etc.?

Yup, entirely normal: Advertisements for diets and diet products try to convince people that their stuff allows weight loss without hunger. Don't believe it. Speak with a health professional about ways to reduce hunger when dieting, such as increasing exercise. But do not expect to eliminate it entirely. It's why many diets eventually fail, something everyone must deal with to lose weight and keep it off. Good luck! ...Read more

Does amway's multi vitamin tablets really work? If so can I stop taking fruits and protein rich foods? Is it sufficient if i eat energy rich foods?

Does amway's multi vitamin tablets really work? If so can I stop taking fruits and protein rich foods? Is it sufficient if i eat energy rich foods?

"really work" BUT...: I am not sure what you mean by "really work" but they will provide a source of vitamins & minerals. However, supplements are not a substitute for a healthy diet. Fruits have many beneficial phytonutrients not found in vitamin tablets. Vitamins do not contain any protein. I'm not sure what you mean by energy rich foods but sugars & simple carbs are among the least healthy foods to eat! ...Read more
