“If protein bars aren't actually very good for you, then what would be some healthy alternatives? would stuff like nuts (just plain nuts such as almonds, peanuts, walnuts, ect) be okay for a protein-full snack?”
You can eat LUNA bars they are good and healthy. About nuts yes they would be ok, but don’t overeat ;)
“i have a weird question. if a skinny person and a fat person were doing the exact same diet, the exact same excersize and the exact same everything. Who would lose more weight in the process at the end of 3 months. would the fat person lose more pounds than the person who is average/skinny”
I would say ‘fat’ person. Why ? It’s simple, they will start with something new; healthy diet and exercise.
I’m finally back :) But seriously what is the weather like today in your town ?

“hi! i'm 5'6, 19 yrs old, 152 lbs and for the past 2 yrs i've lost been using weight watchers to control what i eat (i've lost 40 pounds!), but i've plateaued for the past 8 or so months, going up and down a few pounds each month and i'm ready to try something new. my friends have suggested that i might be taking in too few calories on the ww diet (~1300 per day) and my body is in starvation mode, but i'm nervous about upping the calories for fear of gaining weight. what would you suggest i do?”
First CONGRATS on -40 pounds! You can read —> http://health-heaven.tumblr.com/post/6833418852/plateau
Try to “zigzag” your caloric intake that can help you, I don’t think 1300 is little it only depends if you and how much do you exercise.
“I've taken Prednisone for a long time, and one of the side effects of the medicine is an increased appetite. I can't explain it very well, but it makes me want to eat all the time even when my stomach is not giving me hunger pains. It's my brain sending me this obnoxious urge to eat, eat, eat all the time. Unsurprisingly I'm overweight and have been for a while. Is there any good foods that can cure my constant munchies? :\”
Eat celery, tomatoes, egg whites, high-fiber food. :)
“Hi, recently I've been eating horrible food and its usually during the day that I have these urges. I think its from stress but also from developing bad habits. Do you have any tips or anything that can help ? I keep eating crap again and again even though it makes me feel horrible and I feel the worst after it.”
Lisa: Cherry Green Smoothie
Yesterday’s blueberry smoothie was pretty tasty and gave me energy for my workout and through to lunch. Today I tried a new version. I hid the taste of a whole cup of spinach in a cherry smoothie. This one was even yummier than yesterday’s.
Cherry Green Smoothie:
1 c. frozen cherries
1 c. spinach
1 c. rice milk
1 t. vanilla
Mix well in a blender or with an immersion mixer.
