How does limiting fats help fight against obesity and being overweight?

How does limiting fats help fight against obesity and being overweight?

More calories/gram: Fats contain 9 calories in every gram while carbs and protein have only 4 calories per gram. So eating a food that is mostly fat will give you more than 2 1/2 times the calories of a food the same size that is mostly carbs or protein. For example, putting a tablespoon of butter or margarine on a slice of bread will give you 2 1/2 times the calories as a tablespoon of jam, which is mostly carbs. ...Read more

Need doctor's help! will muscovado sugar aggravate acne?

Need doctor's help! will muscovado sugar aggravate acne?

No: Muscovado is a very dark brown sugar that contains some mineral impurities that make it more acceptable to "natural foods" folks than white sugar, though it will affect you in the same way. It's not going to exacerbate your acne, and you need to remember that all acne can be managed scientifically. If topical benzoyl peroxide doesn't clear you, your physician can. ...Read more

How can limiting ones intake of saturated fats help fight against obesity and being overweight?

How can  limiting ones intake of saturated fats help fight against obesity and being overweight?

If calories are less: Limiting one's intake of saturated fats helps fight against obesity only if the person is not eating non-saturated fats instead. Fats are fats, so saturated fats have the same number of calories as non-saturated fats. Substituting one fat for another fat won't change obesity. One would have to substitute with protein or whole-grain carbohydrates, to get fewer calories and loose some body fat. ...Read more

Can you recommend any good health psychology or CBT books for weight loss or night-eating or emotional eating? Will take all suggestions! Morbid obese

Obesity: I would start with a visit to your doctor who will take your medical history and order some laboratory data. I would also recommend that you ask your doctor to refer you to a dietitian. One important item - don't try and burn off the weight in a hurry. Follow the instructions from your doctor and the dietitian. ...Read more

Hi. If we use weight loss products , medinies or weight loss powder It's a save to use for our health or if we use does we got some health problems.

Hi.
If we use weight loss products ,  medinies or weight loss powder 
It's a save to use for our health or if we use does we got some health problems.

Weight loss products: two things you should do. 1: See a dietitian. 2: Go online and look at all the articles discussing which foods are best. My preference is to go to "NuVal" - this lists 100 different foods that are either good, not so good, or no good at all. ...Read more

Actually i'm from malaysia. I want to look for probiotic supplements high in bifidus factor that are available in malaysia. Can anyone help me? Thanks

Actually i'm from malaysia. I want to look for probiotic supplements high in bifidus factor that are available in malaysia. Can anyone help me? Thanks

Check locally: As far as i know, none of the doctors here are from malaysia and we have no way of knowing what supplements are available in malaysia. If you have a local health food store ask them, or search online. Again, i question whether bifidus will necessarily help you more than other strains of probiotics and the first one you asked about does contain bifidus, so that is probably a reasonable choice. ...Read more

I'm obese.I tried to limit portions & eat healthy, however, i can't get over the mental temptations to overeat. I feel addicted to food. Would meds help?

A better way: A better way would be to work on the reasons for your "mental temptations to overeat." there are many avenues for this, from in-person groups like overeaters anonymous & tops (take off pounds sensibly), to online support like the gabriel method and amihungry.Com -- to personal counseling with eft tapping on the issues particular to you. Cognitive behavioral therapy may help also. ...Read more

Help plz! Can seroquel (quetiapine) help an addict quit alcohol and pot?

Unlikely: If someone was abusing alcohol and pot because they had an underlying disorder that Seroquel (quetiapine) could treat, like bipolar disorder, other thought disorders (like schizophrenia), then perhaps it could help them, but not without a counseling program and making changes in one's life that are almost always necessary to achieve recovery. It has LOTS of side effects, and should not be used for anxiety only ...Read more

Can anyone help? To explain why a 25yr old 8yr endurance athlete lost endurance or glycogen storage adaptation after ssri or corticosteroid overdose?

Can anyone help? To explain why a 25yr old 8yr endurance athlete lost endurance or glycogen storage adaptation after ssri or corticosteroid overdose?

By glycogen storage: I presume that you packed in a lot of glucose under the impression that it would form glycogen. Well, that is the truth but it is a natural process from sugar taken as it is served by mother nature in fruit etc. If you take sugar on its own it actually acts as a drug and will also induce deficiency of vitamin b 1 that might be the cause of your loss of endurance. ...Read more

Yes: Treatable conditions. Ocd should be controlled. Psychotherapy and psychiatric evaluation will likely help a lot. Boredom is difficult to define, but certainly finding and engaging in productive and positive activities will get you more focused on important life goals instead. Good luck. ...Read more
