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

I eat daily lot good healthy food: raw almond, seed, Walnut, Pecan Pistachio, Brazil nut, & olive oil.This adds up to 15+grams sat fat. Any Concerns?

I eat daily lot good healthy food: raw almond, seed, Walnut, Pecan Pistachio, Brazil nut, & olive oil.This adds up to 15+grams sat fat.  Any Concerns?

NO unless...: While it's long been recommended that people minimize saturated fat, recent research suggests there's no benefit to limiting saturated fat (especially when it comes from the healthy foods you are eating) unless you have Familial Hypercholesterolemia or ApoE4. See http://authoritynutrition.com/saturated-fat-good-or-bad/ for a very well-written discussion of saturated fat and the current science. ...Read more

On a low carb diet, is whole grain crackers better than eating bread?

On a low carb diet, is whole grain crackers better than eating bread?

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

Yolks yes, whites no: One or two yolks weekly should be fine - that's where the fat and cholesterol are. Whites are mainly protein and are a very lean and effective source of such and can be eaten more liberally. ...Read more

Recommendations, on adding nuts & seeds to the diet while still encouraging weight loss? Would like to supplement w/ fruit, veggie, almond smoothies.

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 more

Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

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

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

Is fruit and veg whole healthier than smoothies (liquidised)?

Is fruit and veg whole healthier than smoothies (liquidised)?

Yes: Because with whole fruits and veggies, you get the fiber which results in less consumption and quicker satiety (fullness). Smoothies have more sugar from the fruits and veggies due to more being used to make the smoothie. Plus, most smoothies have added ingredients like sugars, syrups, powders, etc - unless you make it yourself. ...Read more

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

Is eating fresh water fish wiser than  eating salt water fish becoz of  its low sodium content, when u want 2 increase protein intake for bodybuilding?

NOT really: Sodium content of saltwaterr fish vs. Fish water fish is apron. Equal. Shellfish ( clam, oysters) and crucateans (crabs, shrimp lobsters) has 3-4 x the sodium per dry weight. Unless the fish is pickled (like herring) or actually slated there should be not restriction in a weight builders diet. ...Read more

Wanting to gain muscle, i get my protein from greek yogurt, Special K meal bars w/peanut butter, chicken, turkey. Is that enough? I'm very picky

Yes: You should be fine as long as you are hitting about 50-60gr, which it sounds like you are. Any more than that and you are likely to just urinate it out. Make sure you eat a post workout meal with ~40% carbs and 60% protein balance to maximize muscle gains. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I am informed oatmeal, granola, fruit, yogurt smoothies and eggs are healthy-- what else?

Healthy foods: You are well informed. I like the egg (1) without the yolk. Generally chicken/turkey breast and fin fish; salmon, tuna, swordfish, trout, tilapia. Incidentally canned fish is better than frozen fish sich in order to freeze the fish they wash much of the valuable unsaturated oils out also important are fresh vegetables. ...Read more

What kinds of foods should I be eatting? I work 12 hour shifts, and it is a physical job. Most often i skip breakfast. Lack of hunger and time contribute to this. For lunches I have been eatting fruit, yogert, or a granola bar with gatorade. For dinner i

Breakfast : Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially because it jumo starts your metabolism, and because you need energy to start your day. At minimum drink a protein or breakfast shake. Otherwise try to have fruit and a protein. Your lunch needs more protein (meat, boiled egg, turkey slices etc). In addition healthy snacks throughout the day (nuts, string cheese, protein bars, fruit, etc.) dinner can be light but try not to skip it. Fast food is neve a good idea, however if you have to order grilled chicken salad or sandwich, no fries or soda. Lastly, i recommend you meet with a nutritionist to help design a healthy meal plan suited for your lifestyle. Take good care and don't forget to drink plenty of water as well. ...Read more

No protein?: Nope. This is dangerous and unwise. A diet that is 100% sugars is not a diet. It is a disaster for your organs, your brain, your immune system and your life. A healthy diet is a protein rich, low carbohydrate and low fat diet. You cannot survive without some fats and proteins in your diet. ...Read more

Yes and whenever. : Probiotics are a good idea whenever you're taking antibiotics, and worth continuing for a week or so afterwards.

Not the key: Weight is ultimately about calories in and calories out, but it's a fact of life that nobody is really counting. The key to staying trim is a fitness-focused lifestyle, including exercising and choosing friends who exercise. Avoid very greasy, very salty, and very sugary foods as best you can, and learn to limit portions. Exercising helps your brain regulate how much you eat. Best wishes. ...Read more

Healthy weight loss: When losing weight you don't "burn body fat" preferentially over muscle. As such, don't waste time or money on products, books, or foods that promise to do so. Also, a 15 pound weight loss over 4 weeks can be achieved but may make you sick--strive instead for a realistic goal of 1-2 pounds/week. Dehydration is not meaningful loss. Healthy weight loss mean small portions, low calories, exercise. ...Read more
