How can a lacto-vegetarian on restricted diet (no salt, sugar, oil, vinegar, gluten) eat healthy?

Balance the diet: A lacto-vegan has many choices for foods. A good nutrition book or a visit to a dietician can help form a balanced diet. Eating a big variety of foods helps prevent nutrient deficiencies. Also, one can take a daily multivitamin+mineral tablet. Lowfat or nonfat dairy products have plenty of protein. One can buy natural, gluten-free foods and cook them without adding salt, sugar, oil, nor vinegar. ...Read more

Is a 1500 calorie diet healthy and sustainable if vegetables, fruit, lean protein and in processed carbohydrates are consumed?

Weight and Activity: Yes that diet can certainly be sustained if it provides for the caloric expenditure of the individual on a daily basis. The mix of foods you choose is also very good. By "processed" i assume you mean complex carbohydrates. If you happen to be 350lbs and 6ft 4in then you are going to be rather hungry for quite some time. ...Read more

Brown rice diet for weight loss....?

Brown rice diet for weight loss....?

Which type?yes,but..: There is not just one "brown rice diet." I do not advise a diet of only brown rice and water. This will result in toxins coming out of your fat and brown rice does not give enough nutritional support to help our body to process these toxins.A brown rice diet with additional organic fruits & vegetables is much healthier, but I do not advise it primarily for weight loss- please see comment for more:. ...Read more

Fasting blood sugar 181.8, hba1c > 7%, taking all vitamins, exercise 6 hrs/week, eat no sugar, eat high fibre, drink water, juice, wt. 67kilo, ht 5'5"?

Fasting blood sugar 181.8, hba1c > 7%, taking all vitamins, exercise 6 hrs/week, eat no sugar, eat high fibre, drink water, juice, wt. 67kilo, ht 5'5"?

Look into Paleo : Your lab numbers suggest you're on the path to diabetes. Even though you don't eat "sugar" any fiber or starch that your body can digest turns into sugar and fruit juice is sugar. Even things like diary that is thought of as healthy has sugar (lactose is a type of sugar). A person with lab numbers like yours has to limit all sugars and heal the damage. The paleo approach can help you do both. ...Read more

Are energy drinks, like "boost" or the Atkins diet energy drink ok for a no carb diet?

Energy Drinks: First there is no medical or health benefit from 'energy drinks'. These drinks are usually high in caffeine and/or sugars. I would read the labels and if there are any carbs in the drink recommend that you not ingest it. But, in general i would recommend avoiding these unnecessary and non-nutritional drinks all together. ...Read more

Is no carb all protein diet beneficial?

Is no carb all protein diet beneficial?

DANGEROUS, however:: A no carb diet would consist only of meat ; eggs; i don't know anyone who recommends this. It would result in many nutritional deficiencies, completely lacking vitamin c, fiber, flavonoids ; other phytonutrients essential for good health. There is lots of research showing benefits of a vegetarian diet but none on the benefits of no carb diet. However, many recommend a low carb diet. See comment:. ...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 more

What is the definition of a negative calorie diet?

What is the definition of a negative calorie diet?

Weight loss: A negative caloric diet is simply that you take in less calories than you burn. Your doctor or a nutritionist can help you determine your BMR (basal metabolic rate) which is the amount of calories you typically burn in a day. To lose weight you will either need to eat less calories than that, or exercise to burn more. It requires a negative balance of around 3500 kcal to burn a pound. ...Read more
