It: It sounds like you have lost your appetite. It is crucial you stay hydrated and keep your body nourished. Per your questions, you have not taken in enough calories, which can also contribute to an upset stomach, due to digestive acids in your stomach. Also, the longer you go on without nourishment, your actual stomach organ can shrink. The loss of appetite can be attributed to stress or having many things on your mind. If you have other concurrent symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, fever or abdominal pain, see a doctor. Also if your appetite does not return, I recommend you see a doctor.

Is it ok to use a juicer to consume fruits and veggies. If so, is the serving size the same?

Is it ok to use a juicer to consume fruits and veggies. If so, is the serving size the same?

It is a great way to: Get them into your diet. Use of either a whole fruit juicer or a juice extractor is very healthy for use with fresh fruits & vegetables. Yes, serving size is the same - but be aware that in many cases you will add water, so that it isn't quite so concenctrated. Also be aware that if you use an extractor that you will be removing benefits of fiber. Use of juicing helps to release enzymes. Ensure.

I don't know how much food my 9mo baby should eat during the day in terms of serving sizes. I think I'm feeding her less.

I don't know how much food my 9mo baby should eat during the day in terms of serving sizes. I think I'm feeding her less.

Food introduction: The general recommendation for food introduction in infants is rice cereal at 4 -6 months, vegetables at 5 -6 months, fruits and fruit juices at 6 months, finger foods & meats at 9 months. A three meal two snack schedule is the usual goal, but adapting this schedule to your family's normal routine should be fine as long as your baby is comfortable and gaining weight appropriately.

Is fried pork skins bad for your health? It says it has 500mg of sodium in one serving size.

Is fried pork skins bad for your health? It says it has 500mg of sodium in one serving size.

Fried anything: Really, fried anything would be bad for your health. Frying and deep frying are not helpful ways to prepare food in general. As far as pork skins are concerned, the predominance of fat in animal meat can be found under the skin, so you're adding fat to a very fatty portion of meat. Not a great idea.

For us boomers who like beef, what serving size (in ounces, before cooking) is optimal? And how many servings per week should one eat? I also eat pork

Red meat.: I would recommend you limit red meat to 4 ounces once weekly in general. Pork is a leaner option than red meat, so you can have a similar portion size maybe once or twice per week of that as well. Red meat contains saturated fat which is unhealthy.

Which ones a better snack: A single serving size of 99% cacao dark chocolate or a single serving of fruit?

Which ones a better snack: A single serving size of 99% cacao dark chocolate or a single serving of fruit?

Fruit: 99% Cacao is certainly better than mild chocolate or other sweets, but it does not beat a fresh fruit. Fresh fruits have loads of other nutrients, fiber, antioxidants (cacao has some too), and will keep you full for longer. I recommend apples and pears because they have a good blend of soluble and insoluble fiber and it is easy to measure out a serving; one.

How can Orange Juice be considered only a medium GI juice? There's a lot of sugar in a serving size...up to 40g per 12 ounces.

How can Orange Juice be considered only a medium GI juice? There's a lot of sugar in a serving size...up to 40g per 12 ounces.

Orange juice: I am not certain what a GI juice is. Orange is an excellent source of fiber and K and vit C. GI juice sounds hokey to me.

Poop has a metallic smell. Normal size and consistency, light brown color. I take omeprazole 2 bid. And eat a serving of all bran every morning.?

Poop has a metallic smell. Normal size and consistency, light brown color. I take omeprazole 2 bid. And eat a serving of all bran every morning.?

Seems normal: I don't think the smell of your stool necessarily means pathology. The heavy fiber diet leads to softer, lighter colored stools but you don't have any true bowel symptoms. If you have continuing concerns, consult your physician or a gastroenterologist.

I take centrum, 400 mg Maganesium Citrate and 2 gel caps of Zyflamend. Zyflamend has helped with job and gym inflammation. Serving size is 2. I take one AM & PM. Can I take 2 BID?

I take centrum, 400 mg Maganesium Citrate and 2 gel caps of Zyflamend. Zyflamend has helped with job and gym inflammation. Serving size is 2. I take one AM & PM. Can I take 2 BID?

Wouldn't recommend: Since this product is anti inflammatory, it can potentially thin the blood too much. Also, since it contains 10 different herbs, I'd be concerned about overdoses of those and interactions with any meds you take. Good luck!

Had a small serving size of sugar free candy almost 24 hours ago and I've been having horrible pains in my stomach and esophagus should I go to ER?!?

Had a small serving size of sugar free candy almost 24 hours ago and I've been having horrible pains in my stomach and esophagus should I go to ER?!?

Abdominal pain: Unbearable abdominal pain should be investigated promptly. I doubt your symptoms are related to the piece of candy that you ingested. You are on high risk meds also including opiates and benzodiazepines and that' s why seeking immediate medical attention is critical.
