How is vega one and athletes food, which one is best ?

How is vega one and athletes food, which one is best ?

Realize for most: Supplements, there is no "best". Neither utilize a third party/independent certifier/certification, like NSF which can better attest to the reported nutrient content. It is nice to know with Vega One products that they don't contain GMO's; while it's not clear that GMO's cause any harm, it seem prudent to avoid foods that are genetically modified when possible. ...Read more

What are the best things to eat/drink for adequate nutrition if one is not able to eat solid food?

Depends on Reason: It really depends on the reason you are unable to eat solid foods. If from a stomach bug, you want to consume what you can tolerate and what is appealing with an emphasis on hydration (alternating water and gatorade). If it is because of, say, a broken jaw, protein shakes are a good bet. You can also puree fruits, vegetables, and protein so that you have relatively normal nutrition. Good luck! ...Read more

What is the best way to introduce shellfish/peanuts, or other possible allergy "risky" foods to a one year old?

Besides being unpleasant, purging by vomiting risks electrolyte imbalance, damaged teeth, esophageal injury, etc. Best to see someone for your eating disorder & save yourself! ...Read more

Hi.Iam 29 years old female, my weight is 64kg and my length is 167cm.Iam sedentary and i like food too much.Whats my ideal weight and best diet for me?

Lifestyle change: Don't focus on a number. Even the "body mass index" has floundered with the 2013 jama article with "overweight" people healthier and living longer than "ideal weight" folks. The right weight is what looks & feels right to you while you are able to compete successful in fitness sports. Rather than "a number" think about finding an aerobic activity you really enjoy & friends you can share with. ...Read more

What the best diet food programs out there?

No such thing: I'm afraid no diet program promotes rapid or good weight loss. The best weapons to use in losing weight are healthy, balanced meals and regular exercise. There are several commercials on tv that promote success stories with weight loss, but to be honest, no program is successful unless you change your eating habits for the rest of your life, vs. Just a short term diet. ...Read more
