What are the best foods to avoid when dieting?

Bad food?: Sorry, the only bad foods i can think of are poisons, toxic chemicals etc. I don't believe in any food being forbidden except a food that you are allergic to....Hives, difficulty breathing, etc. I give my patients a basic outline: 30-40% protein, 30-40% complex carbs--limiting refined starches -refined white bread- and 20% fat. Both protein and fat help us feel fuller. More on this subject....

What is the best weight lose dieting drugs and safe?

Depends on your body: Most weight loss drugs that are commonly prescribed will speed up your metabolism, suppress your appetite, and some interfere with your desire for food. A couple of the latest fda approved drugs work on the part of the brain (the hypothalamus) that regulates your "weight thermostat". There is no one size fits all drug. See a weight loss specialist to find out the best strategy for you.

What diet pill is the best  out there im dieting and exercising but need some extra help which is the safest?

Diet Pills?: You think I am going to say no to diet pills--but you would be wrong! while I am against the non-rx kind--because they are not always reasearched well and could harm certain patients. If you have weight problems, tried eating less, exercising more, and especially have weight related medical problems; you could benefit from a consultation with a medical physician comfortable with rx wt meds-asbp.

What is the best way for a teen to get her period back after excessive dieting for 7 mos?

Better diet: Your body needs enough good cholesterol and fats so that your ovaries can make the hormones (estrogen and progesterone) you need to have a regular period. Excessive exercise can also keep you from getting your period as it shuts down the ovaries.

Is it safe for a 10 year old to eat 1,100 calories a day? If not, how many should she eat? What is the best number of calories for a dieting 10yr.old?

Is it safe for a 10 year old to eat 1,100 calories a day? If not, how many should she eat? What is the best number of calories for a dieting 10yr.old?

Too few: An average 10 year old would need about 2000 to 2200 calories a day. For weight loss of one pound a week, I recommend 1500 calories. Anything less than that might lead to starvation and could actually prevent weight loss.

What are some things to avoid while dieting?

What are some things to avoid while dieting?

No starvation: Simple sugars and processed carbs should be avoided or limited. This includes any flour product.. The fine grind makes absorption quick, and spikes your blood sugar which increases Insulin and promotes weight gain. Good fats such as olive oil and coconut oil are fine in sensible amounts. Eat a rainbow of organic vegetables and just enough protein. No diet soda. Drink water.

Started dieting but its hard to find what foods to eat for dinner that i don't have to make myself?

Many options!: There are many frozen entrees, that can fit any diet. Look for high protein meals with vegetables, low on calories and starches. Breakfast protein shakes from eas and atkin's taste good and are filling. Also, most groceries will have small roasted chickens for about $5 in many seasonings. That can some slaw will make two good meals!

Whats best for losing body fat precentage without doiing major cardio, increase workout or stronger dieting?

Whats best for losing body fat precentage without doiing major cardio, increase workout or stronger dieting?

Eating "Clean" diet: Focusing on quality, lean protein, such as turkey, skinless chicken breast and non oily wish. You may wish to use artificial sweetener, as some individuals metabolize sugars into fat. You should continue some cardio, but weights are fine and you can eat salads with low-fat dressing, avoiding any cheese, creamy sauces or croutons. Also cook at home, as eating out makes it difficult to gauge fats.
