No: Your mammary glands will continue making milk in good supply as long as you keep yourself hydrated and consume adequate amounts of protein. Vary the types of smotthies you consume and take multivitamins making sure you are getting omega 3, vit d and calcium. ...Read more

Can a breastfeeding mother do a juice cleanse? Fresh juiced fruit and vegetable juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner?

Sure.: It doesn't sound like it would have adequate calories for the woman, but should be fairly nutrient dense (watch out for too much sugar), but not harmful to the baby. Sometimes babies can be affected by the foods their mothers eat (i.E: get constipated babies if moms eat broccoli, or drink milk). ...Read more

Fasting: When you fast for a period of time, your body breaks down stored sugar called glycogen in order to fuel your body. After glycogen is depleted, the body breaks down fat to form ketone bodies to fuel the brain. While some people like the feeling of high ketones, many do not. The body also releases regulatory hormones to slow down energy expenditure -- making you feel tired. Eat breakfast. ...Read more

How come if I skip breakfast, I feel faint when i'm standing?

How come if I skip breakfast, I feel faint when i'm standing?

Many potential cause: The most common cause of lightheadedness is simply a lack of fuel in the brain (oxygen + glucose + triglycerides) in one form or other. I'm not sure for you which is the problem - low blood pressure (i.e. Not enough blood), low blood sugar (not enough glucose) or low brain triglycerides (the preferred fuel of the brain), but it is probably one of these. Eat breakfast, and stop worrying about it. ...Read more

How many years could be cut off my life? I never feel refreshed when i wake up and i skip breakfast

How many years could be cut off my life? I never feel refreshed when i wake up and i skip breakfast

Probably none: You should see a doctor to assess why you never feel refreshed on waking- you might have sleep apnea, hypothyroidism etc, but the things that cause this generally do not "cut years off" your life. While many doctors advise eating a healthy breakfast, you should not eat if you aren't hungry and there is no evidence that skipping breakfast shortens your life! ...Read more

I am trying to lose weight and wonder should I eat or skip breakfast?  A glass of water in the morning is enough til noon.

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more

Is it okay to miss breakfast? I am trying to loose weight.

Is it okay to miss breakfast? I am trying to loose weight.

Don't miss breakfast: Especially if you are trying to lose weight- do not skip breakfast.If you miss your breakfast, you will be hungry and have a tendency to eat a bigger meal for lunch and perhaps dinner- which is not a good think if you try to lose weight. Better off- is to not skipping your breakfast and doing a portion control and counting your calories of whatever you eat everyday. Don't forget to exercise. ...Read more
