What is a healthy diet for 6 year old diagnoised withadd not on meds?

Diet and ADHD: There is no "special" diet for kids with add/adhd. They should eat an all-around healthy diet just like any other kid. There are a lot of old wives tales out there about sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, various food colorings/dyes - none of these elimination diets have been found to do anything in particular for kids with adhd. They should drink plenty of water, high fiber, refrain form caffeine. ...Read more

Paleolithic: If health conscious, he may like the paleolithic diet (see thepaleodiet. Com) avoiding processed foods and sugar. This is good for everyone.

My eleven year old granddaughter has had significant weight gain (40 to 50 lbs) in the last year. She eats a healthy diet and does not overeat.?

What is BMI: More important than just her weight is her bmi, which also takes into account her sex and height based on her age. Quite honestly, a weight of 50# does not seem ecessive to me, but I would have to know her height as well. She is likely starting her pubertal growth spurt, and the weight gain may be totally appropriate. There are several good sites online to check bmi's for kids - check that first! ...Read more

I am 5'5 135lbs and 18 years old. Workout vigorously and have a healthy diet but I can't seem to get rid of my "love handles". Any advice?

Add aerobics: To your routines and be scrupulous about eating fresh, clean foods 5-6 times a day in small amounts. Calculate your daily caloric needs, track a few days worth of intake on myfitnesspal. Com, and adjust to stay just under your requirements. Love handles are the "last bit of fat to go, " especially in men.

30 years old, diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer, breast cancer hereditary in family, try my best to eat healthy, did my diet bring this about?

Absolutely not: Anybody who told you that your hereditary breast cancer was "caused by your eating wrong" is at best "misled". I'm sorry you have cancer. Nobody can stop "entertainment" / "junk" sites from making stuff up about diet and disease; most of what you read is lies. But the best scientific studies show little or no link between breast cancer and food choices. Trust you've had BRCA genetic testing. ...Read more

When junior becomes very physically active, his weight will take care of itself, so long as he avoids very greasy / salty / sugary stuff and gets enough lean protein. Wait a few years before he lifts heavy weights. ...Read more

He needs variety..: A variety of food types and portions/servings are recommended--see the pyramid for example. Since he is growing and playing contact sports, he can burn off calories faster than those who don't, and thus needs to take in more. But in general, we eat too much anyway.

Usually menstruation: In otherwise healthy females with good / "normal" diets, it is usually from excessive menstrual blood loss. This can often be improved upon by a multivitamin with iron (prenatal vitamin with iron works well), dark leafy greens, and occasional red meat.
