In what way can a pure vegetarian teen maintain a healthy diet. Meaning, what should he eat and not eat etc.?

In what way can a pure vegetarian teen maintain a healthy diet. Meaning, what should he eat and not eat etc.?

Your choice?: If this is a lifestyle being forced on you by your parents, you are well within your rights to refuse. The health benefits have resisted scientific demonstration, but the moral statement is powerful. Focus on fruits, grains and vegetables, avoid empty calories / junk, get plenty of protein (soy's good), and you must supplement (iron, b12, vitamin d, iodine, others). ...Read more

What are some tips for maintaining weight once you've lost a good amount? I'm eating a paleo diet but want to introduce regular food once I hit my goal. I find maintaining to be the hardest part.

What are some tips for maintaining weight once you've lost a good amount? I'm eating a paleo diet but want to introduce regular food once I hit my goal. I find maintaining to be the hardest part.

Diet: Losing weight is difficult but I believe that keeping weight off is more difficult. Calories do count and if you want to maintain your new weight you will have to restrict your daily calorie intake to about 1000-1200 calories unless you perform extremely vigorous work in your daily activities. I feel it's very worthwhile to meet with a dietician who will evaluate you and recommend a proper diet. ...Read more

How to cure acne? Is changing the way you eat like trying to eat lots of fruits and vegetables and water a good idea?

How to cure acne? Is changing the way you eat like trying to eat lots of fruits and vegetables and water a good idea?

Not curable, but...: Acne is a cruel disease and this is compounded by telling victims it's from "bad diet" or other lifestyle issues. The link to dairy is a minor factor; others even less so. If 5% topical benzoyl peroxide 2x/day hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength meds. Fruits ; veggies are helpful for other reasons. ...Read more

What is a quick healthy way to lose around 10 or 15 pounds in 40 days? I need to lose this amount soon or else! what foods are the most beneficial?

If the paleo diet consists of no carbs or grains how is a hypoglycemic person supossed to follow it ??

If the paleo diet consists of no carbs or grains how is a hypoglycemic person supossed to follow it ??

Hypoglycemia: A spike in blood glucose (from eating sugar) is followed by a spike in insulin (which moves sugar from the blood into the cells) but these insulin spikes often "overshoot" resulting in hypoglycemia. So interestingly it is the high sugar levels which CAUSE the sugar crash/hypoglycemia later. Eating paleo will actually improve hypoglycemia AND hyperglycemia giving you steady glucose levels all day ...Read more

I started going to a diet dr. And the diet she reccomended doesn't allow me any dairy, bread, fruits, starches of any kind. Is this healthy?

I started going to a diet dr. And the diet she reccomended doesn't allow me any dairy, bread, fruits, starches of any kind. Is this healthy?

Eat balanced diet: Restriction diets that limit lots of different "good" foods may work in the short term, but such diets are not meant to be followed for a long time. A simple rule of thumb is to cut back on calories by eating smaller meals and avoiding snacks. Exercise to tone, and to burn calories. Keep in mind that fat=9 calories/gram whereas proteins and carbohydrates =4 calories/gram of food. Eat healthy! ...Read more
