Listen to your body: If overweight with ovarian cyst, one needs 6 small equal meals with a slow anti-inflammatory grain like quinoa, buckwheat groats, or amaranth at each meal and fresh vegetables more than fruit and small amounts of high quality protein from beans, fish, high quality eggs, and grass fed meat.

I eat healthy, 3 meals/day + a snack (nuts or fruit), train 6/7, but since this week I'm always hungry, even wakes me up at night. What's happening?

What has changed: Look at what is different this week. Physically, has your weight hit a low and your body is needing more fuel? Are you exercising more intensely? Emotionally, consider whether you are worried or stressed by something new or upcoming, excitement as well as trouble. Is it hunger that is waking you up or anxiety? These questions may help you begin to figure it out. ...Read more

Problematic question: While your list is impressive and sounds right, healthy snack might be considered an oxymoron unless one has glucose/assimilation problems. More and more times of fasting particularly overnight are being considered healthy. Less calories better/healthier? ...Read more

Which ones a better snack: A single serving size of 99% cacao dark chocolate or a single serving of fruit?

Which ones a better snack: A single serving size of 99% cacao dark chocolate or a single serving of fruit?

Fruit: 99% Cacao is certainly better than mild chocolate or other sweets, but it does not beat a fresh fruit. Fresh fruits have loads of other nutrients, fiber, antioxidants (cacao has some too), and will keep you full for longer. I recommend apples and pears because they have a good blend of soluble and insoluble fiber and it is easy to measure out a serving; one. ...Read more

I ate some fruit snack now I can feel like it did not go down when I swallow I can feel it and it hurts what can this be and what can I take for it.

Esophageal Pain: It sounds like the food irritated your esophagus on the way down and got "stuck." ordinarily, these symptoms should completely disappear shortly, especially if you drink some liquids. If not, it may be a sign that you have a partial obstruction or a "pouch, " known as a diverticulim, in the esophagus, which should be investigated by a gastroenterologist. ...Read more

I ate peanut free fruit snacks went outside to shovel snow and came in bc I was having an allergic reaction could this be food induced anaphylaxis?

Maybe: What was the allergic reaction? Shortness of breath while shoveling snow could be a side effect (no offense) but being out of shape (i am too), but also cold air is classic for causing shortness of breath, runny noses, coughing, wheezing, redness, flushing, etc.... See an allergist to have some testing before chalking up whatever reaction you had to an allergy. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Be more careful: You don't have to do anything else. Just be more careful in future as to what you leave nearby her. You should know the number for Poison Control. The telephone companies have set up in all area codes, just like 911, P-O-I-S-O-N-S. That way you don't have to look it up. Other useful factoid, the really nasty things have a skull and crossed bones symbol on them. ...Read more

You're fine: Truth be told, you've just reached the status of grown man. Congratulations on your progress in your studies. You're too big to be asking us permission to eat as you like. Physical fitness is much more important now than someone's idea of a perfect diet.
