5'3 165lbs on the Special K diet, want to weigh 120 lbs. How many calories a day do I need to achieve this goal in about 2 months. Hardly excercise?
Not advised: Dropping 25% of your body weight in two months with diet alone is going to be next to impossible and even if with exercise quite a challenge. These fad diets are usually just that. You would be better off looking at starting to eat healthy and do regular exercise 2-3 days per week for one hour. This will result in weight loss that is permanent rather than caused by a quick weight loss diet. ...Read more
There is nothing in: Special K protein drinks that would be harmful to a growing fetus. However, they aren't a substitute for a well balanced diet.

However, if you have any health problems like kidney disease or gestational diabetes, talk with your OB first. ...Read more

Carbs most readily: Stored as fat; e.g. the cereal & fruits are high carb; most readily converted by liver into triglycerides & stored as fat.

May be: With having high blood pressure, it is important to not eat too much sodium. High sodium in your diet makes it harder to keep a normal blood pressure, even if you are taking medication for it. Try to keep your total daily intake at 1, 500mg a day. So, you'll have to check the label on the back and add in how much sodium it has to your daily intake to see if you should drink it or not. ...Read more

Treat it as an herb: A normal, healthy person should be able to eat Asian hair moss, a type of cyanobacteria (looks like a strange plant). It can be added to soups and stews, in moderate amounts, similar in amount to adding a half-cup of cilantro or bean sprouts. Variety is the key in nutrition. Problems occur when a person eats too much of just one plant, so a bit of hair moss once every week or two should be fine. ...Read more

What are some 7 day crash diet negative side effects? I have a headache and this is my 2nd day on dr. Furhmans diet
They don't work: They don't call them "crash" for nothing. Your metabolism will crash as you drastically & abruptly alter your nutritional status, sometimes with the addition of drugs. I am unfamiliar with the specific diet you name, but any diet which involves depletion of nutrients (not just "empty" calories) will cause adverse effects--consider prisoner-of-war health issues arising from extreme "diets". ...Read more
