Is eating at night bad if you can't sleep from hunger pains? I only eat high fiber/high protein foods

Night eating: As long as you don't suffer from acid reflux, and your nighttime snacks don't give you too many calories, causing you to gain excessive weight, there is nothing wrong with eating before bedtime. If it were a daily habit, it may end up causing excessive weight gain, but if it's only periodically, it shouldn't really be a problem. Be careful. ...Read more

I'm wondering if i eat foods high in protein and fiber can I lose weight and build muscle?

I'm wondering if i eat foods high in protein and fiber can I lose weight and build muscle?

Yes and no: I would recommend you focus on one goal of either losing weight or gaining muscle. It is hard to chase two opposing targets at the same time. For gaining muscle you need to be on calorie surplus and for losing weight you need to be on calorie deficit.. Set one goal to lose weight once you achieve it go for the second goal of gaining muscle mass. ...Read more

Many protein bars,etc add FOS(Fructo-oligosaccharides). Is it used for adding fiber in their product?Do they provide same benefit as fiber from foods?

Many protein bars,etc add FOS(Fructo-oligosaccharides). Is it used for adding fiber in their product?Do they provide same benefit as fiber from foods?

No way; all sugars:: Fructose (a specific & very unhealthy sugar when concentrated) & saccharides (chains of sugar), oligo means short (i.e. easy to digest quickly into simple sugars which are rapidly absorbed; also rapidly converted by liver into triglyceride fats for storage if not physically very active when consuming these-study: http://goo.gl/uDGIwD for understanding). Sugar use=sales/sweet tooth/?$, NOT health! ...Read more

Congratulations: Congratulations on attempting to lose weight! the problem with diets is that they are sometimes unsustainable. If you are eating 1300 calories per day and are not hungry this is a sign that you were maybe overeating before. The best solution is to make long term lifestyle changes. Losing a pound a day may be too much, a more realistic goal is 2-4 lbs per week. ...Read more

High total protein , positive Ana ,low red bc width. Dr looking for auto immune disease. Could this be lupus ? Also have small fiber n.

Possible but...: Your doctor should focus on your main complaints, signs or symptoms. Lupus an autoimmne disorder that could be difficult to diagnose, not only has lab abnormalities but again a constellation of symptoms that should be evaluated by a rheumatologist if in doubt. Healthy people can have a positive ANA test, again it matters the context in which you order such tests. ...Read more

I read certain food (soy protein/walnuts/dietary fiber) can affect Synthroid (thyroxine) meds. How long need to wait before eating these after taking pill?

I read certain food (soy protein/walnuts/dietary fiber) can affect Synthroid (thyroxine) meds. How long need to wait before eating these after taking pill?

That's silly: Forgive my frankness. This is news to me after 40 years in medicine and I traced it to a phony "natural healing" doctor-bashing scare website. You do best to take thyroid hormone replacement on an empty stomach and waiting a while maybe 30 minutes before eating, but you were probably told that when it was prescribed. It's of minor importance. Best wishes. ...Read more
