How can I lose weight.....Foods to keep body healthy without gaining....

See Dr., and then...: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing).

Your body type: We classify patients as endomorph, mesomorph or ectomorph. The latter are those who tend to eat whatever they want and yet don't gain any weight. The good news is that you're eating healthy. But are you eating enough healthy calories? If you need to expend 3, 500 calories to lose a pound of weight, that means you need to consume an extra 3, 500 calories to gain that pound. Ask doc to check thyroid. ...Read more

Soy is almost as good as animal protein in term of nutritional value (lacking B12 however) but is no better than many other protein sources either. At one time, soy was touted to be preventative of breast cancer but now the opposite may be true. The best answer is moderation and balance in nutrition ...Read more

After eating fatty unhealthy food, how can I cleanse my body of all the unhealthy food and start all over fresh to put healthy food in my body?

Does'n work that way: Our body is an amazing biochemical machine but it does not work the same way as in your car engine. Therefore, we cannot just flush out the toxins or bad things in one shot like car mechanics do on car engine. Despite a lot of claims by several OTC medications, those cleansing methods are myths and not scientifically found. Try to eat healthy and live healthy consistently is the best way. ...Read more
