How to increase my body growth by food if I am vegetarian?

Unclear question: Do you mean how to gain weight on a vegetarian diet? If so, why do you wish to gain weight? If you are otherwise healthy, being skinny is not a disease and may be better for you. At the age of 40 the only body growth you are likely to experience is increase in body fat and I would not recommend that. ...Read more

Black patches have developed on the body of my dad. He is around 50 yrs. We are vegetarian. These patches are on entire body, have developed in 2 months

Black patches have developed on the body of my dad. He is around 50 yrs. We are vegetarian. These patches are on entire body, have developed in 2 months

Go to see PMD: I don't know what they are. It is hard without examining those patches. Whatever is- he should go to see his doctor and let him examined the patches and go from there. It could be fungal infection, could be something else. I don't think it has anything to do with being a vegetarian. But being a ve getarian, you should remember to take vit B12 supplement. ...Read more

I am a pure vegetarian and wanted to know which fruits and vegetables I can eat to increase hemoglobin content in my body?

I am a pure vegetarian and wanted to know which fruits and vegetables I can eat to increase hemoglobin content in my body?

It depends...: This depends on whether you are deficient in iron, B12 or folate (folic acid); if so, then increasing your levels will increase hemoglobin; if not then it won't make a difference. There are no good vegetable sources of b12- you need to supplement with it. For good sources of iron see http://www. Vrg. Org/nutrition/iron. Php
for folate (folic acid) sources see http://www. Whfoods. Com/genpage. Php? Tname=nutrient&dbid=63. ...Read more

I am bit slim and want to put on some weight and want to build nice body musles... So what should be my daily diet... And also I am vegetarian..

Vegetarian Too: I am also vegetarian. You will need to eat more calories than you burn, which is tough for vegetarians. I would suggest a vegetarian protein powder - and assure you are obtaining 20-30grams protein after any weight lifting or intense exercise for proper muscle repair/building. Be sure to eat more calories than you burn - that is the key. ...Read more

How can you reduce body odor without deodorant or a vegetarian diet?

How can you reduce body odor without deodorant or a vegetarian diet?

Forgive my frankness: You can't. The glands that make us smell like adults are no longer useful but are still very active. Nowadays, you can't shower and change clothes hourly. Alum works poorly. The pop claim that vegetarians smell better reflects less intake of sulfur-containing proteins rather than less adult gland activity. And if you stink, you're likely to lose your job without being told why. It's your life. ...Read more

I am vegetarian & always trouble w/ protein. I don't like nuts or beans. Is it possible my body is used to low daily protein? I get some but not much

I am vegetarian & always trouble w/ protein. I don't like nuts or beans. Is it possible my body is used to low daily protein? I get some but not much

Your daily protein: Requirements are not nearly as high as you might think. As long as you are eating a variety of foods, it is very difficult to not get enough protein, as long as you are eating enough calories. Even "low protein" foods, such as potatoes, have about 8% protein, which is close to the WHO recommendation of 10% of daily calories. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Use BMI: Use a bmi calculator. Many in the market/internet. Bmi between 19-25 it's normal. Below 18 it's not healthy for you. I see you are dealing with emotional problems. Be very careful with your weight. Do not get fixated with being slim. Look at your inner beauty. You are loved. God, friends, family. But, you have to love yourself first. I will pray for you.

Dear doctors, which vegies help my body to create more creatine to gain muscle? Actually I'm a vegetarian and don't want to eat redmeats and fishes

Dear doctors, which vegies help my body to create more creatine to gain muscle? Actually I'm a vegetarian and don't want to eat redmeats and fishes

Vegan or OvoVegan?: If one doesn't eat eggs, then egg white (which is all protein) is not an option. That means one would have to add items like beans, legumes (like peas), nuts (like cooked cashews or cooked peanuts), soy (like tofu), etc... To get more protein. However, as long as one eats a balanced vegetarian diet, his body can make muscle protein from the nutrients in the balanced variety of vegetables he eats. ...Read more

A person is havig lucoderma. So should he take injections twice a weak of vitamin B12 as it is insuffecient in his body? . He is a vegetarian. Male 21 yr

Whoa: Something is wrong here. All vegetarians need to supplement with vitamin B12, but it's best done orally unless you cannot absorb the stuff that way. B12 shots twice a week is overkill; once a month is probably fine. Leukoderma is often vitiligo, or sometimes tinea versicolor or something else; a proper diagnosis needs to be made. And vitiligo can run with pernicious anemia. Needs to be sorted out. ...Read more
