Enjoy...: Unless you personally have specific issues with rye, wheat, and oat (such as celiac- which I doubt or you would have known not to eat lasagna), then you have nothing to be concerned about after eating those ingredients. Congratulations on the pregnancy.

Can processed foods such as, white flour, bread increase anxiety? Thanks

Can processed foods such as, white flour, bread increase anxiety? Thanks

Yes in some reports: Sugar and white flour increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, diabetes, and high cholesterol. In addition, they may increase the risk of some cancers and most inflammatory diseases such as arthritis. They also suppress immune function, and in my experience, are one of the most common causes of fatigue, depression, anxiety, hypoglycemia, sugar or starch cravings, .

Weight loss: Weight gain or loss depends on a very simple rule which is calories in vs calories out. You have to look at the total calories for the day and how much you burn. Starving yourself will put your body into starvation mode where it becomes more efficient and stores any extra calories as fat. The key is to eat a balance diet at frequent intervals without skipping any meals with regular exercise.

I have changed my diet and cut out fried foods and anything with white flour and walking a mile a day does that warrant losing 3lbs a week? I did weigh 320 I am 270 now

Congratulations!: That is a little rapid and it will probably slow down. Initially when you stop eating toxic foods, the inflammation in the body reduces. Inflammation causes damage to your tissues and causes edema or excess water stuck between the cells, muscles and organs. As the inflammation reduces the edema resolves and you lose water weight rapidly. The fat will come off more slowly.

If a person completely changes their diet...No fried foods nothing with white flour and only drinks water. Does that warrant losing ten lbs a month?

Maybe: If you do those things and keep the calories to 1200kcal a day as well as doing 90 minutes of moderate exercise every day you will lose weight. If you cut out fried foods and white flour but are eating 2500 kcal a day and not exercising, you will not lose weight.

Not normal: This is not a normal reaction to eliminating white flower. You may be having a sugar level that gets too low. Try adding back some sugar in your diet.

How can bass fried in milk, white flour, and egg yolk affect body composition?

How can  bass fried in milk, white flour, and egg yolk affect body composition?

Bake it instead: Grilled or baked fish is way less fattening than fried fish. The frying itself more than triples the calories, and they are the worst kind of calories, oxidized fat. It will not be a good food to eat if you are concerned about body composition.

Grains: Many people eventually develop sensitivities to grains as they get older. If you think about it, grain is grass seed and we are not ruminants. Check out the paleo diet. In two weeks, you're a new person!

Question uncertain: By increasing exercise and decreasing carbohydrates, you are burning off calories efficiently. If you are concerned about how much you have lost, consider having your doc check your thyroid function, especially if you feel nervous or irritable, have insomnia, palpitations, thinning hair, muscle weakness, heat intolerance. Doc can examine you thoroughly for signs of other problems.

How can I get my diabetic 60 year old mother to stop eating so much white flour and other foods that turn into sugar quickly?

Education: You need to take her to the doctor or take her to the diabetic educational class. She can learn or understand the risk of diabetes, the pathological mechanism of diabetes. The more she understands it, the easier she changes her eating habit.

What is more healthier cooked or raw oat?

What is more healthier cooked or raw oat?

Most raw foods are: More nutritious. Cooking de-natures the enzymes in food, especially in the micro. Raw foods are harder to digest. Par-boiling or soaking in water is a good way to go. Please be sure anything you eat is thoroughly washed. Peace and good health.

Is oat not good to person with gout?

Is oat not good to person with gout?

Gout diet: Diet does not play as great a role in worsening or helping gouty symptoms as is commonly thought. Diets high in alcohol, particularly beer, shellfish or organ meats pose the greatest risk. Fruits, grains, vegetables and dairy products do not raise the risk of gout for most people. Enjoy your oatmeal!

Is cracklin oat bran as healthy as all bran for regularity?

Is cracklin oat bran as healthy as all bran for regularity?

Cracklin oat bran: IF Cracklin Oat Bran is the name of a boxed cereal it likely contains lots of chemicals such as additives, preservatives, sugar, etc. Thus, it is not good for you. Far better to consume bran flakes. You can put some cinnamon on them for flavor, which is also good for balancing blood sugar. Peace and good health.

Eating disorder: It sounds like your friend suffers from aorexia nervosa, an eating disorder where people have a distorted body image & feel overweight even if thin. No one knows the cause but this can be very serious, even life threatening. Your friend needs to see a doctor or therapist who specializes in this. Consider talking to her parents.
