It depends: Whichever one has the least amount of carbs is probably best; if you choose bread then choose whole grain bread. Consider whole grain crackers that also have seeds as those will be lower in carbs (such as mary's gone crackers). In following a low carb diet you don't need to completely avoid grains but keep the amount of grains relatively low; whole gluten-free grains are relatively healthy. ...Read more

Sodium free beans (kidney, black, garbanzo, pinto) vs sweet potatoes which is healthier for wright loss? I've been eatin beans and avoiding potatoes
Neither: Both types of foods contain high glycemic index sugars, the sweet potatoes being somewhat worse. A balanced, lower fat diet and exercise will suffice for weight loss of 10 lbs. Or so. A larger weight loss might require a specific diet. Of those available you should look at the dukan diet. It is a low-fat, high protein, low glycemic index-food diet and is safe for most people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?
Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more

Yes for Carbohydrate: They’re different from more traditional egg noodles or pasta because they’re made from mung bean starch. That they contain bean starch is a good clue that they are excellent sources of carbohydrates. The downside to glass noodles is that they’re not rich in nutrients. If you prepare 54 grams of dehydrated noodles, you’ll get about 6 percent of the daily value of iron, selenium and niacin ...Read more
Recommendations, on adding nuts & seeds to the diet while still encouraging weight loss? Would like to supplement w/ fruit, veggie, almond smoothies.
1 ounce/day: Nuts and seeds are great to add to a weight loss plan. Realize that one ounce of nuts is 200 calories. One ounce of nuts a day is all you need for protein, unsaturated fat. Take into account the calories from the nuts and seeds when you do eat them. They are healthy foods and should be a part of everyones plan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not by itself: Some food plans may include protein shakes or smoothies as meal replacements, but you can't rely exclusively on these for nutrition. If you're adding the smoothies onto a diet that already contains the amount of calories and nutrients you need, you will not lose weight. It may help to review your overall food plan with a nutritionist to see how the soy smoothies fit into it. Exercise too! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi doctor.Can i eat mix powder of egg white powder,wheat germ powder,formula baby instead protein powder for volume muscle?
Sounds unpleasant...: To increase muscle mass you need to increase weights when you strength train. Adequate protein is important in your diet - but no concoction is going to give you the gains you want without you doing the work. I would suggest that lean meats would be a more appetizing way to meet the protein requirements. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Iam gluten free gaining weight why if i avoid all bread items i eat chicken beans beef along side salad no dressing rice or corn cereal fruits?
Gaining weight: That's great that you are not consuming a lot of carbs and are watching your diet. You also need to look at the overall quantity (and calories) of what you are eating as well. Are you exercising too? Without physical activity (cardio), it is hard to lose weight. You have to burn more calories than you are consuming. You might be doing this already and have another reason for weight gain. ...Read more
