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 an all fruits and vegetable diet healthy or do you need bread, eggs, etc?

Is an all fruits and vegetable diet healthy or do you need bread, eggs, etc?

You need variety...: Fresh fruits and veggies are good in general because they provide some good vitamins/nutrition, but as human we cannot digest cellulose--the main component in veggies/fruits, which the cows/horse can. They can turn grass/hays into proteins/meats, we cannot. A variety of food types is recommended--see the pyramid for example. Consult your doc/nutritionist. Live well, melani6. Good luck. ...Read more

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

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

Any suggestions on which is healthier vegan food or fish diet?

Any suggestions on which is healthier vegan food or fish diet?

Educate yourself: A vegan diet is extremely dangerous if you do not know exactly what you are doing and supplement accordingly. Adding fish makes its safer. Despite all the grandstanding, there's little (some would say no) strong evidence that either offers health (as opposed to the very real moral) benefits when we control for other healthy lifestyle considerations. ...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

My friend had high fat low carb diet and omit wheat, rice, sugar oat and all other cereals from food list. Is it safe? M indian n can"t forego wheat.

Fad diet: This "pop" diet -- despite the elaborate "scientific theory" presented by its proponents -- probably works like most of the other diet fads by limiting food choices. It's your friend's business; i trust this person will use appropriate, cost-effective supplements as needed if it's too restrictive. ...Read more

Are calorie restrictions or low carb diets effective?

Yes: By eating more fresh fruits and especially vegetables which are lower in carbohydrates compared to processed foods such as high calories such as cakes, you could lose weight by taking in less calories and feeling fuller. Calorie restriction or portion control is another way to lose weight. However, the smaller size of what youre eating may not be as satisfying as having more fruits and vegetables. ...Read more

Are eggs excluded on a dairy free diet for diarrhea with spore free culture?

Are eggs excluded on a dairy free diet for diarrhea with spore free culture?

Fresh eggs ok. : Eggs are not a dairy product, and if fresh and eaten soon after being well cooked should not be a problem to digest and will not have mold spores. Egg beaters which are pasteurized are ok too. Eggs have no residue ( which means they are low in fiber). That is a good thing if you have diarrhea. Good health ...Read more
