When I diet I can eat fast food?

Wouldn't recooment it: In general most fast food restaurants contain foods which are loaded with high concentrated calories.

Can you tell me what number of american families are living off of a fast food diet?

Can you tell me what number of american families are living off of a fast food diet?

Why do you ask?: What I can tell you is this. People love to criticize other people's food choices. When we control for obesity and lack of exercise, alcohol and smoking, most supposed benefits of "healthy eating" and especially vegetarianism disappear. Fast food outlets offer low salt low fat options that you may prefer. Government guidance on diet largely political and keeps changing. Stay fit and eat sensibly ...Read more

Dietitian: At 17 years old, this is the time to develop healthy habits, including eating. A consultation with a nutritionist would be a great start. He or she can go over you lifestyle, and recommend gradual changes that you can manage. Obesity is a true epidemic, and it only gets more difficult to manage as you age. Watch the processed carbohydrates, don't drink your calories, and eat smaller portions. ...Read more

Can too much salt in diet/fast food taken for long term harm the endothelium lining and cause endothelium dysfunction?

I cut out soda, milk, and fast food out of my diet. Just water and beer on weekends now. Try eating better but no time and can't cook. No results?

I cut out soda, milk, and fast food out of my diet. Just water and beer on weekends now. Try eating better but no time and can't cook. No results?

No results for what?: What is your endpoint? What is it that you are looking for results with? Can't answer question without that information. If you are not eating on the weekends, and replacing it just with water and beer, you are doing yourself no favors. You need healthy balanced meals, 5 servings (at least) of fruits and vegetables, reduce animal products and alcohol in your diet for any healthy result. ...Read more

Eating junk food, fast food n like bad diet everyday cause my vagina2smell somedays? No itch, no pain during sex/urinate. Maybe it's just my normal odor.?

Never heard of it: Try to observe a healthy diet for a week or too and see if there is any change. I have not hear of this relationship but you may be onto something interesting... When I think not vaginal odor I think bacterial vaginosis: could this be related to diet? Never heard of it, but interesting concept. Bad odor is never normal: the entire reproductive system has evolved to be attractive to potential mates. ...Read more

Elevated LFT's: If you continued your fast food diet but expected milk thistle to correct the effects on your liver, you now have evidence that this didn't work. There could also be problems with the preparation you used, as some have been associated with elevations in alt. Http://tinyurl.

19 yr old male, skin tone on hands appears yellow. Highly active, professional ballet dancer. Diet could be better, fast food, etc. Heavy veggie juice?

Could be: At age 19, most likely explanation would be heavy vegetable juicing. Foods such as carrots, oranges, spinach, squash and sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene and can cause skin discoloration/yellowing. To be safe, can also get blood tests with your doctor to make sure you do not have diabetes or jaundice (caused by liver dysfunction/disease). ...Read more

I'm a female 19 5'5 and weigh 110lbs. To maintain weight with no/little excercise what diet works. Moderate diet, zone diet, low fat/carb diet? Help!

Diet: Diet is a key in weight control but when you are so close to ideal body weight you need some exercise to maintain metabolic rate and muscle mass. Otherwise your body will simply slow metabolic rate and you will not feel or perform well and may not lose weight. More lean muscle burns more calories and makes it easier to keep weight off. If you don't build muscle you may add fat when gaining. ...Read more

Is it true that the happiness gained by eating fast food is out-weighed by the cons?

Is it true that the happiness gained by eating fast food is out-weighed by the cons?

Yes: Your question uses the term "out-weigh" and that is one of several reasons it is true. The caloric load of most fast food - especially the 'happiness' choices - is extreme! It is a very unhealthy way to eat. Also, while I fully believe eating should be pleasurable, it's different than providing happiness. Try to find other experiences and paths to feeling happy. ...Read more
