I'm concerned because the first ingredient is whole meal but in the ingredients it also included wheat gluten. Is this ok or should be avoided?

Is steamed white rice fattening? Can it replace wheat bread in a meal? What are good edible sources of calcium besides milk and suppliments?

Is steamed white rice fattening? Can it replace wheat bread in a meal?  What are good edible sources of calcium besides milk and suppliments?

Yes: White rice has a high glycemic index, which means it causes a rapid rise in your blood sugar. Part of the Insulin response to that rapid increase in blood sugar makes you fat. A tiny amount won't hurt, but it makes it difficult to lose weight. Replace the bread with vegetables. Not rice. Starch is not a required part of a meal. You can get calcium from yogurt, cheese, sardines, greens. ...Read more

Please explain why does the wheat belly diet say not to exercise?

Wheat belly diet: Contrary to what the question implies, this diet actually encourages exercise. If you have any weight loss from this diet, it is likely from abstaining from sugars rather than gluten. There's no scientific basis that avoiding glutens alone will result in weight loss. The amount of caloric intake is most important. Good luck. ...Read more

If I opt to take a 1 time meal, would it be healthy, how would i be able to some pounds I want to get my belly into shape?

Dont do it: You're much better off eating smaller, frequent meals of good quality than one large meal. Moderate your fats and carbohydrates and eat fresh when possible. Water is your friend. Then, move, strengthen your core, don't try to focus on your abs. And be patient, this won't happen overnight. Good luck. ...Read more

I need to lose belly fat! Please help I do not overeat in fact I have 2 meals a day?

Eat more : You need to eat at least three healthy meals spaced out throughout the day to spark your metabolism. If you eat sparingly, your body thinks you are staving and will not allow you to lose weight. I noticed that you are a drinker... Alcohol contributes greatly to belly fat. Eat healthy, limit alcohol, exercise for at least 20 min five days a week and you should see results. ...Read more

Hello I'm diabetic and allergic to wheat. My belly is 35inches. Is this due to injection? Please tell me some tips to reduce my belly.

Hello I'm diabetic and allergic to wheat. My belly is 35inches. Is this due to injection? Please tell me some tips to reduce my belly.

No: Injection would not increase your girth size overall. A good way to reduce the girth size would be cutting down on carb, alcohol, and fat intake while exercising regularly (core exercise especially). Cigarette smoking would shift the fat to the belly. As you know already, not eating more than you need is essentially both for your diabetes and for your girth. Good luck. ...Read more

If I have a cheat meal/day will it cause me to bloat and will it last for a few days? My focus is on toning my belly so I don't want to look bloated?

Depends: It truly depends on what you are eating and how you eat it. If you eat too quickly you will likely take in more air than usual and this can cause bloating. Anything like soda or anything carbonated will cause bloating. Chewing gum can cause bloating. There is truly a lot of things that can cause bloating and I would say enjoy your cheat meal, you totally deserve it :]. ...Read more

Why only after eating the main meal of the day, getting severe pain in upper eft abdomen? Pain oes away completely after two hours or so.

Why only after eating the main meal of the day, getting severe pain in upper eft abdomen?  Pain oes away completely after two hours or so.

Pin after meals: Most likely the culprit is the stomach itself. Either an ulcer or just hyperacidity can cause such pain which gets better once the food passes further. You should see a GI specialist who can specifically diagnose these issues. In the mean time, avoid fatty food and high calorie diet. Fruits and veggies can help. ...Read more
