How long will it take to lose 30 pounds if I don't eat red meat and walk 2 miles everyday?

How long will it take to lose 30 pounds if I don't eat red meat and walk 2 miles everyday?

GOOD GOAL >15 weeks: Many studies show that a reasonable rate of weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week. So @ that rate 30# loss should take approx. 15+ weeks. You may have to look closely at calorie intake and 'not just stop red meat'. Perhaps a 1300-1500 kcal/day 'meal plan' will net you the weight loss you desire. It is a great idea to 'walk 2 miles a day'. Good job! ...Read more

If i don't eat red meat, could this cause anemia? I have all the symptoms...

If i don't eat red meat, could this cause anemia? I have all the symptoms...

Potentially yes: Iron and B12 are in red meat as well as many other nutrients. If you have symptoms of anemia, it's best to see your doctor to have a simple blood test to rule it out. If you are in-deed anemic, then getting your iron, b12, folic acids, etc. Would be a good follow-up blood test. ...Read more

Been on cont birth control year round for past year and half. I have above normal iron (iron binding capacity). Other iron levels normal. Cold it be from the pill continuous. Don't eat red meat.

Could be from pill : Estrogens can increase the proteins that bind iron and this is harmless. Iron Saturation is the number you want to look at, and is calculated by dividing (iron) by (total iron binding capacity). If your saturation is between 20 and 40 (or the normal for your lab), you are fine. ...Read more

Is red meat , fast food really that bad for you? Is it food that kills or how much you eat? What do most doctors eat ?

Food and Exercise: What you eat can be good or bad for you. You could see a dietitian for advice but I recommend that you also go on-line to see "NuVal". NuVal has a long list of foods that are either very good, not so good, and quite bad for your health and your weight. You should also take time at least once a week to exercise. Not easy in the cold and snow but there are many not very expensive training centers ...Read more

I've read too much red meat is unhealthy, but that it's also the best source of absorbable iron. How much can/should I eat a week for sufficient iron?

I've read too much red meat is unhealthy, but that it's also the best source of absorbable iron. How much can/should I eat a week for sufficient iron?

Iron pill: Rather than relying on red meat, you may take oral iron supplement available over the counter. If constipation tends to be an issue, take the pill with meals and you may take a fiber laxative like Metamucil. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Creatinine Clearance (Est) L 73.3600 mL/min 75.0 - 115.0: Why is my level low? Is it because I'm a small 64/ female and eat no red meat?

Creatinine Clearance (Est)	L	 73.3600	mL/min	 75.0 - 115.0:  Why is my level low? Is it because I'm a small 64/ female and eat no red meat?

Realize: As we get older out kidney function does slowly decline. Think of the kidney as being made up of a million Brita filters. As we age, some of those filter stop working. If you have blood pressure, cholesterol, and/or other vascular issues even more of these filters can stop working. Be aware even your diet(as you mention) and/or muscle mass can affect this value with suggestion of a problem. ...Read more

What are some healthy lunch choices for my lifestyle if i like to eat red meat?

Limit size and fat: Most studies indicate that red meat consumption is not good for the health, and possibly adding even just one serving a day can increase the long term risk of death. However, most nutritionists recommend focusing on sensible portion sizes and lean red meat cuts, for those who choose to eat it. Substitute fish, chicken and turkey, nuts and beans as alternative protein sources. ...Read more

Is it okay to eat a small amount of red meat every day as part of a meal? It's prepared as healthily as possible, and is lean where possible.

Is it okay to eat a small amount of red meat every day as part of a meal? It's prepared as healthily as possible, and is lean where possible.

It depends...: Research shows that vegetarians live longer ; have lower risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes etc. But this may be due to other factors. Most who eat meat eat factory-farmed meat. Meat from grass-fed animals is far healthier so it is likely that grass-fed meat in moderation is a healthy choice- see http://authoritynutrition.Com/grass-fed-vs-grain-fed-beef/ ; http://bit.Ly/gagviu. ...Read more

Hi I am 27 yr old female. My LDL is 167 and HDL is 70. I weigh 122 lb and exercise 4 days a week. I do not eat red meat at all. What are my risks?

Hi I am 27 yr old female. My LDL is 167 and HDL is 70. I weigh 122 lb and exercise 4 days a week. I do not eat red meat at all. What are my risks?

Cholesterol : Your LDL is higher then the recommended level of 130 for the general population. This is a risk factor for heart disease. Some may consider your HDL level as a positive risk factor counterbalancing the elevated LDL but I don't subscribe to this position. Your LDL must be lower to reduce your long term risk, especially if you have other risk factors. ...Read more

Why do I get sick from red meat? I stopped eating red meat about a year and a half ago. Just a personal choice. It started to make me sick to smell, see, or think about it so i just stopped. I eat it sometimes in little bits if its in a salad or a pizza b

It could be : Something else triggering the "meat disgust" that has appeared one year after you decided to stop eating meat. Only a good general medical check up with a physical exam & appropriate lab work up, will give the answer to your question. It is a good question and i wish u the best to find the answer asap.

Lap chole 5/27/14, original pain gone, but the last couple of days I have had pain right side of my back. I eat a no dairy, no red meat?

See your surgeon: You need to follow up with your surgeon. It may not be significant in your case, but back pain after gall bladder surgery can indicate complications such as bile leak, infection, etc... By this time, any discomfort from the gas used during surgery should be gone. It's possible it's just muscle strain, but any new symptoms in a post-op period should be reported to your surgeon. ...Read more

I am B12 deficient and I take injections.
I think I might be allergic to red meat as every time I eat it I get diahrrea. What could this mean?

Lots of things: Your physician might do well to test you for maldigestion / malabsorption / steatorrhea, especially if are also intolerant to other fatty foods. This might explain both your B12 deficiency and your diarrhea after eating red meat. I'm glad you're a good observer of your body, and wish you success with this inquiry. ...Read more
