Renal diet: Patients on dialysis need to watch their fluid, calcium, protein and potassium intake. The patient you are referring to must have a renal dietician at his dialysis center.

Tell me why patients with kidney failure eat and drink what they like only during the first few hours of dialysis?

Tell me why patients with kidney failure eat and drink what they like only during the first few hours of dialysis?

Nurses being nice: The total fluid removal target is programmed at the beginning of the dialysis run. Fluids consumed on dialysis are added to the total weight target. The removal target is doable from the onset of dialysis. If you drink 32 oz in the last hour, it is difficult to get this (and the preprogrammed amount) all off in the last hour. ...Read more

I can eat breakfast and I won't get hungry again until dinner time. Why? How can I fix this?

I can eat breakfast and I won't get hungry again until dinner time. Why? How can I fix this?

Breakfast: If your breakfast is very high in fats, it'll slow down your stomach emptying time reducing the onset of hunger. However if you're not experiencing any lassitude, lightheadedness or unsteadiness in the afternoon, then all you require is some fruit or maybe a health bar for lunch and you'll do very well. ...Read more

Why do I pass out at the sight of blood when i don't eat breakfast? Any other time, i'm fine.

I don't know, AND...: I don't know why you faint at the sight of blood when you have not had breakfast and do not faint when you have had breakfast, and it could have to do with being more susceptible to fainting due to relatively low blood sugar when breakfast has been missed. Fainting at the sight of blood occurs in about 15% of the population. http://www.m.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/features/swoon-at-the-sight-of-blood. ...Read more

Is it true we have a fat-saving mechanism that doesn't get turned off for the night until we eat breakfast in the morning?

Is it true we have a fat-saving mechanism that doesn't get turned off for the night until we eat breakfast in the morning?

Sort of true...: During the night you don't need as much energy and your metabolism slows down. Once you wake up, your metabolism speeds up again, but without a healthy breakfast to provide the nutrients and energy your body needs, your metabolism can't sustain a higher level for long. You burn more calories during the day and are less likely to gain weight. ...Read more

My 3yr old stopped eating as he normally did. He eats a couple bites of his breakfast he will eat a bit more at lunch but doesn't want dinner.

My 3yr old stopped eating as he normally did. He eats a couple bites of his breakfast he will eat a bit more at lunch but doesn't want dinner.

This is frustrating : But, very normal. If you look at a growth curve for a 3 year old, it really slows down through this period and is most nice able by the eating patterns you describe. If he is not eating a good mix of foods, a multivitamin might be helpful. Most kids do not need them as ensuring a wide variety of fruits, protein, vegetables in creative ways can help. ...Read more

I want to help my friend she only takes bite from in apple for breakfast and doesn't eat lunch and barely eats dinner what could happen to her?

She could die: You are right to be concerned. It sounds like your friend has anorexia nervosa, a serious condition that could be fatal. She needs professional help and might even require hospitalization. It may be difficult to convince her to get help. Discuss your concerns with her family, as they should help her.

I can't eat in the morning aside from cereal. I can't eat heavy. Now with work i need breakfast. What to eat that will keep me full for a while?

Cereal with fiber.: You don't have to eat a heavy, fat-laden breakfast to keep full through the morning. Have your cereal, but make sure the cereal you eat has a good amount of fiber - this will keep you full longer with less food for breakfast. ...Read more

My son 5 yo is below his normal weight.At home he doesn't eat breakfast n at preschool too also lunch Seems like he has no appetite. What should I do?

Appetite: I'd suggest taking him to his doctor and going over all of this to include a review of all of his past growth measurements. Much can be revealed by looking at all of his past height/weight along with his history as a newborn and infant. I'd recommend starting there. ...Read more

I eat twice a day, ensure for breakfast and light heavy lunch, how come i haven't lost any weight?

I eat twice a day, ensure for breakfast and light heavy lunch, how come i haven't lost any weight?

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more

I want to lose 10kgs and don't care how unhealthy it is. If i only eat breakfast how long will it take to lose 10kgs?

Wrong strategy.: Your strategy is not wise. Doing things out of convenience without regard for your health is wrong. You need to lose weight by eating smaller more frequent meals throughout the day with included fiber and complex carbohydrates and lean protein sources. That being said, you should lose 10kg over at least 11 weeks to make it stick. ...Read more

Yes: Don't worry, interruptions in your normal eating patterns for a day, or even a few weeks, will cause no long term harm. You may be more hungry, but that is normal. You will be fine. ...Read more
