Hey! can a 17yr old(18 running) consume green coffee bean extract?

Maybe...but no proof: Green coffee bean extract is considered "possibly safe" in adults and is sometimes used for weight loss, hypertension and other conditions. It has not been studied in children or teens. There is no conclusive proof that it works for these or other conditions.

Is it better to use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin? Canned pumpkin pie mix or just plain canned pumpkin?

Is it better to use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin? Canned pumpkin pie mix or just plain canned pumpkin?

Fresh but celebrate!: I believe in fresh fruits&veggies/shopping in the periphery of the store. However, if you have a family recipe or something that you use once per year and it's canned pie mix, go for it! Generally speaking - fresh/single ingredients are better than mixtures/processed foods since you know more about what you're mixing with the single ingredients. We can definitely discuss more about sugars, etc. ...Read more

Can a 17 yrs old (18 running) consume green coffee bean extract?

Insufficient reports: Green coffee beans are beans that have not been roasted. Roasting decreases chlorogenic acid, a chemical that is believed to increase metabolism and help with weight loss. Inadequate studies have been done to prove safety or to determine correct dosing. Green beans also contain caffeine, which is well known to cause upset stomach, jitteriness, insomnia and occasionally anxiety. ...Read more

A chocolate bar or a packet of crisps, what's healthier?

Depends: The higher the concentration of cacao, the less sugar and saturated fat, and the less added artificial ingredients, the healthier chocolate becomes. The same can be said for the crisps. Avoid added ingredients that include chemicals. The bottom line is don't eat too much of either and always avoid added sugars and chemicals. ...Read more

Was my lunch ok for weight loss or did i screw up?I'm 18 male 5'9 170. One piece whole grain bread, slice onion, slice tomato, 1 avacodo, handful almonds

OK: One meal isn't going to make or break your program- the best way to lose weight is permanent changes in how you eat. Slow ; steady is the way to go. Hard to evaluate your lunch without knowing the rest of your diet but it looks ok. Eat mostly fruits, veggies, nuts ; seeds ; you'll lose weight. I'd have much more tomato/onion that a slice. Whole grains ok in moderation. See http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht. ...Read more

In early preg, had 1 cup of coffee yesterday. Was feeling weird & found out it was turbo coffee. How could this affect baby? Should i call doc? Scared

Relax: If the main ingredient in this brew is caffeine i would relax and not worry about baby.Caffeine is considered relatively safe during pregnancy although i encourage moms to use it in moderation. It is important to avoid it near the time of delivery as newborns cannot metabolize it quickly and it can take days to clear their system. They would show poor feeding and irritability as a result. ...Read more

In early preg. If u don't drink a lot of caffiene, but accidently drink a lot in one day, because my husband mistakingly gave me turbo coffee, will it cause miscarriage? Felt different since i had it

Unlikely: You have to remember that lots of women take in caffeine in fairly large quantities well before they even realize they are pregnant. Its good that you are working hard to stay healthy during your pregnancy, but i wouldn't worry about the turbo coffee. However, be aware that coffee has alot of caffeine in general. 6oz has around 150mg. A 12oz mountain dew has about 75mg, red bull 90mg/can. ...Read more
