  • What should I order instead of soda?

    I go to McDonald's frequently and I always order 4 large sodas cause it's just $1 and they taste good especially when it's 100 degrees hot. But I keep hearing that sodas are bad for you even diet sodas. So what should I order instead that's healthier? Orange juice? Lemonade? Milk? Mango Smoothie?

  • If all I can afford is bread , eggs and cereal, will that be a healthy nutritious diet to lose weight from?

    Best answer: If you can afford bread, eggs and cereal, you can probably give up those and substitute other foods that would form a healthier diet, but the bottom line is that it doesn't matter what you eat to lose weight, it's what you DON'T eat that counts. You need to control calorie intake, no matter how you... show more
    Best answer: If you can afford bread, eggs and cereal, you can probably give up those and substitute other foods that would form a healthier diet, but the bottom line is that it doesn't matter what you eat to lose weight, it's what you DON'T eat that counts. You need to control calorie intake, no matter how you choose to diet. You need to eat less calories than the number needed to keep you alive, so that your body will draw on its fat resources to make up the shortfall. Obviously if you are going to eat bread, eggs and cereal, you are not going to be able to eat very much of them, because they are all quite calorific.

So I havent worked out much before, but I started this week. 2 days ago I worked out my calves, and I worked em out pretty hard. They weren't sore yesterday like I expected, but I woke up today and they are really sore. Is it normal to be sore 2 days after? Does the fact that I'm just starting out have to do with it?

  • If I eat something bad (cookies, chips) as a snack during the day, will eating healthy later balance it out?

    I do this regularly..I meal prep with all good stuff, but in between meals, during the day, I might buy a cookie or a bag of chips while at work, but still staying on track with my meals, and lifting almost daily. Will eating bad in between hurt me, or what?

  • Is 1kg of cooked pasta with carbonara sauce and diced chicken, alot of pasta?

    Best answer: Cooked food contains a lot of water, which adds a substantial amount of weight to the food. And water doesn't have any calories. I think it's more accurate to weigh uncooked pasta. Because you can have varying amounts of water in cooked pasta. Which makes calculating its calories inaccurate. I'd... show more

    I'd say that 200 grams of uncooked pasta is a good amount to eat.

    Hi guys, I am a girl, I am 15 years old, and I'm 5'3" and 102 pounds. I cognitively know I'm not overweight but sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and think "my butt is huge! my thighs are so fat! look at this potbelly!" Sometimes I just wake up and feel sooooooo flabby, even though I know I'm not obese or anything. I'm not even a size B bra cup but I feel like my boobs are huge and make me look fat. I do eat whenever my mom makes food and it's not like I'm purging it or anything, and I don't shy away from junk food. I don't overexercise (just like 30 minutes a day). I just find myself thinking about my weight a lot. Do I have some kind of eating disorder, or am I just a little hung-up on my weight?

    Best answer: Drinking cold water absorbs heat from the body and it causes the body to expend energy due to muscle contractions needed to swallow the water, and peristaltic contractions triggered by an increased volume of fluid in the stomach and small intestines.

    There is a common fallacy that the cold temperature causes a person to burn calories to compensate for the heat loss. Its amazing how many information sites have incorrect information about this. Note that none of those sites explain how the body produces more heat. Basal metabolism typically produces excess body heat, and drinking cold water merely helps to quickly dissipate the excess heat. You would have to drink enough cold water at a fast enough rate to lower core body temperature. Maybe you could do this by gulping a 12 oz glass of ice water all at once. For the most part, cold water only causes the body to burn more calories if drinking the water causes a person to shiver.
