Can people usually ask for the nutrition facts when they go to fast food restaurants when they ask for the menus?

Not so much: When going to "fast food" restaurants, people are often in too much of a hurry to ask about nutrition facts before buying and gobbling. More and more such restaurants are posting this information, though -- so you can look it up online before going. In some cases it's right on each item on the menu when you get there. ...Read more

What are healthy options for my kids on kids restaurant menus?

What are healthy options for my kids on kids restaurant menus?

Non-fried foods: Restaurant foods are often not made to be healthy but are made to taste good so customers will return. That means restaurant foods will have more oil, more salt, or more sugar than home-made foods. Grilled chicken breast is good, but usually the menu item is fried chicken strips. Spaghetti with red sauce is ok, unless the sauce is too oily. A hamburger without mayo; with steamed veggies is ok. ...Read more

Any suggestions for avoiding sodium in restaurants, other than "hold the salt & seasoning"?

Any suggestions for avoiding sodium in restaurants, other than "hold the salt & seasoning"?

Good Luck with That: The western diet relies heavily on salt for seasoning. And restaurants don't hold back at all.
Try this:
1. Never eat from the bread basket (breads, cakes, pancakes, etc. Are full of salt).
2. Avoid creamy, cheesy sauces.
3. Avoid restaurants that use pre-prepared starters (usually your chains, diners)
4. Avoid smoked meats and deli cuts.
5. No salad dressings (usae oil and vinegar). ...Read more

Is a vegan diet any good?

Moral high ground: In this era of factory farming, it's a conscientious choice but each of the big recent studies shows no health advantage or disadvantage of a supplementing vegan over an omnivore in longevity or any category of illness if you control for other health habits. A non-supplementing vegan will become seriously sick in a few months. Be discerning and recognize the huckstering & real caring about animals ...Read more

Can going vegan help you lose weight?

Can going vegan help you lose weight?

Yes: This can be a very healthy lifestyle provided that you supplement -- you will run low on B12 quickly, and may lack usable vitamin a, vitamin d, calcium, iodine, zinc, and iron. There is no magic -- the stuff that vegans eat isn't the stuff that the rest of us gorge on, so they stay thin. The other alleged benefits are hard to demonstrate scientifically as vegans tend to have other healthy habits. ...Read more

How can I get enough of B12 as a vegan?

You MUST supplement: The decision to become a vegan is a moral one, rather than one that will benefit your health, despite all the huckstering. I admire and respect people who make this choice. However, if you do not supplement with a form of vitamin B12 that you can use, you will ruin your health, perhaps permanently, in a few months. You'll also need additional supplements; ask a good physician or dietician. ...Read more
