Are there benefits from monounsaturated fat? I'm eating macadamia nuts, and it has 20g mono & 3.5g saturated fat (24g total fat) per serving.
Good fat...: Yes...It is a better type of fat...We need fat in our diet, but unfortunately much of what we get is saturated fat--meaning from animal products. Often from nuts/plants, we get monosurated fat, a good thing. This fat is not as dangerous--not causing much damage to your blood vessels etc...So, monosaturated fat is a better fat to get. Good luck..Stay healthy. ...Read more

This lunch healthy for 18 y/o tryin 2 lose weight? 1 piece whole wheat bread, 1avacodo, slices of tomato/onion/bell pepper, & 4-6 oz chicken breast

I strongly advise organic chicken - see http://bit.Ly/19xax7e for the reasons. My favorite diet for weight loss and overall health is dr.

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
Looking for dietitian advice does protein cereal really curb hunger on diet? Given the ingredients such high protein, fiber and whole grains.
No: Unsalted carbohydrates are still carbohydrates, unfortunately.Get a more detailed answer ›
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
Apart from healthy eating,to gain more nutrition-good idea to make hot chocolate with nutritionally rich cocoa powder,vanilla extract & stevia daily?

If you are healthy, just staying physically fit is much more important than obsessing over food choices. I would bet you know this already. Enjoy the chocolate. ...Read more

As doctor have say low fat diet is not healthy does that mean i replace low fat milk with whole milk and eat butter and whole fat cheese?
Low Fat Diet: No i think your doctor did not mean to consume fatty foods but to eat a balanced diet, not one specifically trying to eliminate fats as some fats, like omega-3's are essential fatty acids and quite beneficial to consume. Focus on a plant based diet and learn more about the mediterranean diet as it is regarded as one of most balanced, healthy diets that limits many diseases from developing. ...Read more
What do sugar cravings constantly mean? 70 lb wgt loss in 16 mos.I avoid carbs & fats. High protein vege fruit diet now.Advice?
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).
