What's the best weight-loss home delivery program? Seattle sutton?

What's the best weight-loss home delivery program? Seattle sutton?

Wtloss home delivery: The positives about home delivery are portion control and ease of use.I imagine the companies that deal in home delivery would allow you to purchase a "sample" program to see if the food is to your taste after all, if the food is not to your liking-you will not becommitted to the program. I still advocate one"regular" type family meal per day. Please have your dr evaluate the nutritional content. ...Read more

210pounds 5^2 21yrs old. Considering the 400(or600) calories a day diet. Nutritional diet plan?

Not enough calories: If you drop caloric intake too drastically - you will actually eat up a lot of muscle and drop your metabolic rate. This is NOT a healthy way to lose weight. Consider working with a nutritionist so that you can do this in a healthy way. Take care. ...Read more

35w4d US shows baby's abdomen larger than head- est wt 6lb9oz. With strict diet will baby even out by 39 weeks for vag delivery? Well controlled GD.

More detail : You will need to go over the specific details of the sonogram with your doctor. Ask if the enlarged abdomen is cause for concern or if it just a slight variation of normal. Poorly controlled Gestational diabetes leads to overall fetal growth especially in the shoulders not the abdomen ...Read more

I'm a female 19 5'5 and weigh 110lbs. To maintain weight with no/little excercise what diet works. Moderate diet, zone diet, low fat/carb diet ? Help!

I'm a female 19 5'5 and weigh 110lbs. To maintain weight with no/little excercise what diet works. Moderate diet, zone diet, low fat/carb diet ? Help!

Diet: Diet is a key in weight control but when you are so close to ideal body weight you need some exercise to maintain metabolic rate and muscle mass. Otherwise your body will simply slow metabolic rate and you will not feel or perform well and may not lose weight. More lean muscle burns more calories and makes it easier to keep weight off. If you don't build muscle you may add fat when gaining. ...Read more

Any good diet home delivery plan?

Any good diet home delivery plan?

Don't recommend: The reality is at some point you will have to have a 'relationship' with food; whether dining out, celebrations with friends and family or going to the grocery store. Meal replacement plans are typically useful to get ready for surgery, otherwise have a poor record of long term weight control. Eventually you'll have to quit buying the food and have a nutrition skill set. ...Read more

No problem: You should have no problems traveling at this stage of your pregnancy. Take the usual precautions as to food and water restrictions and check with the health department concerning immunizations and their safety in pregnancy. The only concern i would have is with the need for possible malaria prophylaxis, again check with the health department. ...Read more

Went on 1200/day cal diet 4 high cholesterol, numbers good now,can't afford 2 lose more weight,how many calories now to maintain & keep good numbers?

Need more info: What is your height and weight? What are your lipid levels, not just cholesterol? Exercise is good for raising good cholesterol and lowering bad cholesterol. It would be prudent to discuss it with the doctor who ordered your cholesterol tests.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

If i wanted to diet... And have a meal delivery service. Which one do doctors recommend the most... Nutrisystem, bistro md, jenny craig delivery..?

NoneBestLearnReality: Despite all the commercials, they are not selling health but convenience ; reduced quantities, for a price! none of them have done large clinical trials (exempted by dshea act 1994) to evaluate their efficacy; instead hiring well-paid "celebrities" to sell their wares. While they do occasionally work for some, none have any long term success. Best study issues yourself ; learn what works for you! ...Read more

Hospital labor & delivery vs birth center. Which is better and why?

Hospital labor & delivery vs birth center. Which is better and why?

Define Birth Center: I deliver at a birth center which has private rooms, newborn rooming, birth plan receptive... But still offer 24/7 epidural service, full or availability in-house for emergencies, full time peds/neonatologist if needed, and full lab & blood bank services. Most hospital l&d units are emulating birth centers & maintain all support services in case of emergencies. Tour & deliver where you feel safe. ...Read more

Non-diabetic, before meal blood sugar 90, 1hr peak 180, 2hr 140, 3hr 100. Am i safe from organ damage? Any lower carb diet would drop me to hypo zone.

Non-diabetic, before meal blood sugar 90, 1hr peak 180, 2hr 140, 3hr 100. Am i safe from organ damage? Any lower carb diet would drop me to hypo zone.

Huh?: If you are not diabetic why are you measuring bg three times around your meal? You are asking for trouble. Stick with the standard method of diagnosis. You are not at risk for organ damage until you become diabetic range and should not do anything other than eat a good mediterranean diet, maintain a healthy weight and exercise regularly. ...Read more

Medically supervised very low calorie diet (800 calories). Ok to exercise. Principle of ketosis. Burn about 400 cal/day/hr monitor. Safe?

Medically supervised very low calorie diet (800 calories). Ok to exercise. Principle of ketosis. Burn about 400 cal/day/hr monitor. Safe?

No safe shortcuts: This type of diet often makes the body angry, decreasing calories too much too quickly will send your body into starvation mode. Less calories = weight loss, but your body will become more efficient at holding onto calories, so you will gain the weight back and then some later on. Weight watchers is the safest and most consistent in my experience with thousands of people. ...Read more
