Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 14 and I have been now working out for 2-3 months and my main goal was overall to lose weight but I mainly want to lose belly fat. I have done morning workouts e.
Avatar f tn So I've done tons of research about stomach fat and the best way to burn it is by a balanced diet and by drinking a lot of water and engaging in both cardio and strength training, but is there anything else? i workout usually everyday, at the least 5 times a week, very rarely 4. I eat quite heathy, taking in a lot of fruits and vegetables and trying to watch my serving sizes and portions.
Avatar m tn When I asked my “trained” nurse about the fat intake requirements she did not have a clue to what I was referring to. Afterwards when I showed her the instructions about the fat intake rules I then asked about the diet requirements, I was told that nuts and whole milk were good things to eat. In my case the nuts I ate ripped me apart and caused lots of bleeding and with the whole milk that was my worst nightmare come true.
Avatar n tn The best way to lose stomach fat is to wear a trashbag like a t-shirt cut the arms and neck part out and make sure trashbag is touching your skin.
Avatar m tn Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease and am trying to adopt his vegetarian low fat diet but have questions about its conflicts with current heart healthy diet recommendations. Please advise on the value of moderate amounts of walnuts, pistachios, extra virgin olive oil, coffee and fish/fish oil in a heart-healthy diet. I have lost 15 pounds following his diet and cutting my alcohol intake to 2 drinks per day (I am 55 years old, 6' tall and now 175 pounds).
Avatar m tn Any suggestions on how to flatten my stomach? I walk about two miles a night and don't see any difference.
Avatar f tn I encourage you to visit Dr Mercola’s site to learn more about Peak 8 fitness because I personally feel that it is one of the best ways to exercise, especially considering the speed at which you can lose fat and build muscle. I highly recommend you read this article and watch the videos on the page.
Avatar f tn When I passed a gallstone during my C-Section 13yrs ago they didn't want to go back in the next day to remove my gallbladder. Hence, the docs suggested a low-fat diet which was <5.0grams of fat in any given meal and it worked to thwart off any future attacks. But you need to talk with your doctor to see what is best for you. So sorry you are going thru this now. Steering clear of any fats (esp fried foods and cream sauces) worked for me.
Avatar n tn It may also help to cut down on foods that are high in fat (which slows emptying of the stomach) and foods high in fiber (which is difficult to digest). Some high-fiber foods, such as broccoli and citrus fruits, should be avoided altogether, since they are only partially digestible and will remain in the stomach. Liquid meals, which pass through the stomach more easily, may replace some meals containing solid foods. _______________ Here is some more info.
Avatar n tn And that long post is right about something else as well -- fat is also important to the diet, but that means you need to eat the right kinds and avoid the wrong kinds to keep up your health and energy.
Avatar f tn My doctor mandates a yeast free and sugar free diet. My naturopath said no wheat and dairy...I really try to limit it the best I can. Sometimes when I am starvin Marvin, I have a wrap sandwich or something with wheat. I now see how addicted to sugar that I was. It was a risk -benefit thing for me. I want my health back so badly that I am willing to give stuff wasn't so bad once I made the commitment. For bread you can get Ezekiel bread...
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
Avatar m tn ) and the extra salt just messes them up. My one doc actually told me to have yogurt daily both for calcium and to help my stomach. That being said, things I would try are moderate - since you know if you blast away at the exercise (I call the play/pay) you are out for days, don't. Stretch, walk and just do soft easy stuff. Your body is just not able to handle the stress of the other stuff - maybe later, not now. Don't worry.
Avatar f tn After a paint free month, I tried adding a bit more fat to my diet until I was eating normally. Now the pain has started again. It's as if something toxic builds up in my system when I eat fat, and goes away when I don't. I've had all sorts of tests done. The ultrasound showed no gallstones (just a couple of cysts in my gallbladder and liver). Many blood tests didn't show any liver damage, cyliac disease, lactose intolerance, or anything out of the norm.
Avatar f tn I can imagine your feeling sluggish cuz of all the fat, when it is apparent from you lifestyle that fat is not a large part of your diet. I feel lousy when I eat high fat foods, as I TRY to eat healthy the majority of the time. I can sympathize and will be in your shoes shortly. Did they tell you how many grams of fat they recommend? How many grams, approx., are you eating presently with your Riba?
784916 tn?1237931021 I'm still enjoying the weight loss 4 months later. My metabolism appears to have improved. Best wishes to you. You can read through my posts to get all the back story on my own surgery and recovery. Hopefully it will help you through this.
148691 tn?1260198503 According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier. > > PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
Avatar n tn my doctor told me during my treatment to eat whatever i special diet just try to eat the fat with every meal.the peanut butter got old by the first week.i eat a fatty breakfast, bacon, eggs, sausage,cheese,cream cheese and ham bagel,whatever is pleasing to the palet and provides fat.
Avatar f tn Fat, Fiber and Carbohydrates. Fat is pretty straight forward. Fiber is anything that grows out of the ground... mainly fruits, veggies, nuts, grains and berries; and the important thing to know about fiber is that the digestive acid in your stomach won’t break it down, so when you eat fiber, it fills you up faster and keeps you feeling full longer. Finally, Carbs are foods that are naturally sweet, or anything made with sugar or flour.
Avatar f tn It seems like I have a problem if I eat too much fat, or not enough. I can't seem to get my diet right in order to correct my system. It seems like what I eat has an effect but I can't seem to predict what is going to work and what won't. Has anybody else had this issue? Any suggestions on how much fat to eat? I'm desperate for my body to equal itself out.
Avatar m tn If you are overweight, some doctors in the UK do free referrals to diet clubs to help you and motivate you to lose weight. So do ask your doctor about this (if you need help to lose weight). Best wishes.
167426 tn?1254089835 Instead of using sugars, carbohydrate, protein then fat, the steroids switch your system to preferentially use protein first and to store fat (and covert carbos to fat). We can then get extra hungry as the body tries to keep the protein level which just adds to the problem (as well as reduced excercise due to chemo side effects). Therefore to keep from weight gain, it would be logical to increase protein and drop fat and carbohydrates to a healthy minimum to prevent fat storage.
Avatar n tn The diet consists of a carb, fruit, and dairy for breakfast/carb, veggie, dairy for lunch/carb, protein, veggie for dinner. Everything has to be 0-1 gram of fat (except the protein). Does anyone have a better diet to follow? I HATE fat free food and practically gag while I'm eating. I feel absolutely horrible all day from lack of energy and I'm always hungry.
451075 tn?1210262248 I decided to take a new approach - Atkin's diet. i want to get my 8 pack showing and have no fat on my hips and stomach. In the morning I eat: 1 Cup of Oat Bran and 1 egg, 1 egg white with 2 glasses of water. Then throughout the day I have 4 more meals, consisting of either Chicken Breasts, Lean Beef or Fish. I drink water only and supplement with Glutamine (20 grams a day), Multivitamins, Vitamin C, Fish/Flax seed oil and Chromium. My main question is this: Is this safe?
649848 tn?1484935765 I tend to feel the same way in regards to plans that call themselves a "diet". To me a diet is simply "what you eat", whether is be good for or not - like cows eat corn, koala bears eat eucalyptus leaves, etc -- that's just "what they eat" so it their diet. I am only 5' tall and when my thyroid quit working I gained about 30 pounds in < 3 months. I've been stuck every since then, at between 145 and 150 lbs.
371308 tn?1213836179 My only symptom with the celiac was extreme stomach pain and maybe bloating in the stomach area although I thought it was just fat. I had just lost 50 lbs. dieting and have gained about 15 or so lbs. back so I surely don't want to do anything that will make me do that. The hypo doesn't help weight loss but I think the celiac will. Best of everything in your finding out what is wrong. Don't try to do everything at once. I did and it is too overwhelming. A little at a time.
Avatar f tn NO ALCOHOL, poison to the liver with hep c. --- no fat or high fat foods. Beef, both because of the fat content AND it's a source of iron, which isn't very good for the liver. But the fat content is enough to cut it out. Ditto pork. --- no salt, retains fluid. The liver begins having problems processing and eliminating fluid, stores it in the legs, and intratissue areas around the stomach, and chest (big man boobs, if you are a guy) --- told to stop caffeine.
Avatar m tn Prior to treating, I tried several diets. The Zone-type diet, which seems similar to what you advocate, balances out protein, fat and carbs in a 30, 30, 40 ratio. The carbs are all low on the glycemic index, not allowing starches, etc, except in very small quantities. The good carbs are most fructose based, a la fruits. The other diet was the Pritrikin diet which was basically a very low fat diet -- under 10 per cent of total calories.
Avatar n tn Throughout the pregnancy baby is forming their nervous system and an integral part of that is the myelin sheaths. The baby needs fat to do that and that fat needs to come from mommy's diet. NOw this isn't saying you should eat everything in sight, but pregnancy and nursing are never times to go on a diet. Be smart about it, love your body and reward it (not punish it) for growing a life inside of it.
233616 tn?1312790796 re diet - my doc (nurse actually) says that it's good to take meds with food, but only because of sx, esp nausea if taken on an empty stomach. When I asked about the 20 g fat, she told me not to worry, since I'm not taking Telaprevir. Purines - not going to go there...
