Hemp protein can be added to yogurt and used as salad dressing. Soaked, sprouted and cooked dry beans can be frozen and added to salads for high quality protein together with quinoa, an excellent low carb high protein grain. ...Read more

Can skipping breakfast and only eating dinner and snacking without eating late at nights cause me to lose weight? I know it's not healthy.

Can skipping breakfast and only eating dinner and snacking without eating late at nights cause me to lose weight? I know it's not healthy.

Probably but...: To lose weight one must consume less calories than they burn up so eating less will help you lose weight. However, research shows that eating after 8 pm is associated with weight gain. The earlier you eat your dinner and not snacking after 8 pm will likely help. What you eat is also important! see http://www.Webmd.Com/diet/news/20110614/eat-late-gain-weight ; http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht. ...Read more

Still eating healthy intake and excercising trying to lose weight to get rid of apnea if its even the cause. Should i avoid pushups  for weight loss?

Strength training results in increased muscle mass, which does help in burning fat. Weight loss does help improve obstructive sleep apnea and many other things like hypertension and diabetes. Way to go and keep it up! ...Read more

Diabetic. I exercise and want to exercise more, i eat healthy but I am losing weight, what i be eating not to lose weight and not to incrse bs as wel?

Calories and Control: Weight loss can be a sign of poor control of diabetes, so if the sugars are not controlled your doctor needs to help with this (some diabetics may need insulin). You are burning more calories with exercise, so if the sugars are controlled and you are losing weight, you need more calories. You can get calories from fats, proteins, or carbs, and the first 2 effect your sugars less. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I am likely to lose weight eating weight watchers frozen meals every day?

Can you tell me if I am likely to lose weight eating weight watchers frozen meals every day?

Nothing magical: There's nothing magically added to a weight watcher's meal except they control the calories and portion size. Weight loss all comes down to calories in versus calories out. If you eat 10 frozen meals a day, it won't help. If you add a bunch of snacks in between and a soda or sugary drink, it won't help. But if this is included as part of an overall sensible diet, it can aid in weight loss. ...Read more

Will I gain a lot of weight if I eat little for breakfast and exercise, eat more at lunch and dinner but not exercising after that? I starve then eat.

Will I gain a lot of weight if I eat little for breakfast and exercise, eat more at lunch and dinner but not exercising after that? I starve then eat.

Starve and eat: creates blood sugar fluctuations so you may become moody and fatigued. Starving yourself can provoke you body to store fat to protect itself. Please see your doctor and ask about low carb higher protein food plan. Good fat is good for you and it will create a feeling of satiety, thus you won't feel so starved. Peace and good health. Exercise once daily if doc says your health is ok for that. ...Read more

If you eat unhealthy food and don't exercise, how much weight can you gain in a month?
