Questions and Answers

Why am I gaining weight on my new diet?

I have had bulimia for a very long time and tried EVERYTHING to get better, whilst trying to lose a bit of weight. I'm not looking to go crazy skinny, I just want to feel better about the way I look without ending up binging and purging.
So for the last two days I have done the cookie diet (I only got a trial pack so today is the last day of the trial) which has been the most fantastic thing ever. I get to eat every two hours, it is fairly sweet so it helps with that part of my disorder. They are special cookies so they have the nutrients I need in them, and therefore I don't get hungry. Plus at the end of the day I get a 500-700kcal meal, which is a bigger meal than I ever have, so I don't feel like I'm restricted. There are no banned foods. It suits my disorder perfectly. It totals to exactly 1200kcal (I haven't gone more or less) and I have been exercising, no more than usual, although I did have a break for a few weeks due to a death in the family. Yet I get on the scales each day, and it has gone up by 0.1kg each day. I know it doesn't sound like much but it freaks me right out. Is this water weight? Or my body clinging to fat? I never have 2000kcal (I know I should but I just find that too difficult right now) I always aim for 1200kcal but always end up binging and purging. So this is the first 2 days I have managed to not do that. The cookie diet is not a perminent fix,Is my weight going to keep going up, or will I eventually lose after a while?

Hi there, ill share with you 3 effective ways

– Eliminate Sugars and Starches
The most important part is to remove sugars and starches (carbs) from your diet.

These are the foods that stimulate secretion of insulin the most. If you didn’t know already, insulin is the main fat storage hormone in the body.

When insulin goes down, fat has an easier time getting out of the fat stores and the body starts burning fats instead of carbs.
Bottom Line: Removing sugars and starches (carbs) from your diet will lower your insulin levels, kill your appetite and make you lose weight without hunger.

– Eat Protein, Fat and Vegetables
Each one of your meals should include a protein source, a fat source and low-carb vegetables. Constructing your meals in this way will automatically bring your carb intake into the recommended range of 20-50 grams per day.
Bottom Line: Assemble each meal out of a protein source, a fat source and a low-carb vegetable. This will put you into the 20-50 gram carb range and drastically lower your insulin levels.

Exercise 3-4 Times Per Week(optional)
Dumbbells
You don’t need to exercise to lose weight on this plan, but it is recommended.

The best option is to go to the gym 3-4 times a week. Do a warm up, lift weights, then stretch.

THERE is a product called yacon syrup which is 100% natural and is really great for weight loss.

How can i lose belly fat?

I'm 13 and a girl. I really don't like the way i look,mainly my belly fat. I do sit ups(on and off (20)) drink plenty of watch and eat a lot of fruit (2 a day)and some not so healthy foods…. I tried a pair of pants in store i really liked but when i got the for Christmas a month later they didn't. I just want to lose it! It's taking over my life so far I've been on web-sight over web-sight looking for ways. Please help!!!!!! :(

Aim for fit and health, and you're 13, don't stress so much about it, it's fine to have junk food in moderation but there's tons of yummy recipes you can make too, like stewed apples with brown sugar & cinnamon

eliminate dairy, reduce your meat intake, switch to coconut, almond, rice, hemp milk, make sure you get your omega 3 (hemp seeds, walnut). Gluten could be hindering your weight loss.

2 fruits a day is not a lot at all, you should eat a minimum of 5, the more the better, here is a myth about fruits from a nutritionist

4. Fruit is just 'sugar and water'
I have heard several people say this, one being the afore mentioned Zoe Harcombe who seems to think that fruit is the devil's work and other poorly qualified or non-trained lay people. I once heard someone advise a dancer to eat 'hot cross buns for energy as fruit is just sugar and water'.

I need to stress at this point, if anyone does actually tell you this big fat fruit lie, they have NO knowledge of nutrition at all.

Fruit has a wide nutritional profile – anyone reading my blog will know this, as I often give the full nutrient breakdown of my fruit meals – including fats, healthy carbs, proteins, minerals and vitamins.

Just to illustrate, here is a breakdown of the minerals and vitamins in one of my favourite 800kcal breakfast smoothies:

5. Fruit is too high in sugar

Hopefully the above post already covered this somewhat but lets start with a little biological science for you. The primary fuel of the human body is Glucose, yes SUGAR. Sugar is so essential to cellular functioning that if we don't eat enough foods containing 'sugars' then our bodies cleverly break down fats to convert to glucose instead. This process is rather wasteful and inefficient, but it is necessary as without enough sugar we die – it's a simple as that. Consider how complex our blood sugar regulation systems are, we have special feedback systems with hormone activation for if the blood sugar is too high OR too low. Why is this so sophisticated? As I said before without a constant stream of glucose to our cells and especially to our brain, we die.

The problem is we've thrown out the baby with the bathwater and lumped all healthy carbs under the banner 'sugar' without differentiating between whole carbs and isolated sugars, or 'intrinsic' and 'extrinsic' sugars.

Intrinsic sugars are those that naturally occur inside a wholefood, such as the carbohydrates inside fruit, vegetables and grains. Extrinsic sugars are those that have been removed from their natural food source and isolated, this can also mean sugars that have been artificially manufactured.

To keep it simple just think: intrinisc sugars/carbs are ESSENTIAL and extrinsic sugars/carbs are to be avoided at all costs. All table sugars (no matter how 'raw' or 'organic') are extrinsic as are things like molasses, honey, agave nectar, date syrup, yacon, Xylitol, Sucanet, palm sugar, coconut sugar.

Healthy intrinisc sugars are whole fruits, whole grains and starchy vegetables like sweet potato and squash.

There is LOTS of confusion around this area and words like Carbs, Sugars and Starches are often used incorrectly.

To bust the lie apart though, fruit is not 'too high in sugar' as all natural whole fruits are low to medium on the Glycaemic Index and have a low Glycaemic Load – this by default makes them low sugar foods. Unlike refined grains (pasta, white bread etc) which is high on the glycaemic index (can you see the irony here about someone saying that fruit is just sugar but hot cross buns are ok) and therefore a high sugar food. The highest sugar foods are foods that are manmade with lots of refined sugar and refined grain (cake, chocolate and candy). Isolated sugars are all super-high on the glycaemic index with isolated glucose in pole position at 100.

A welch's fruit snacks bad for you?

I eat them almost everyday at school.
Is this bad for me? To eat them everyday?
I think I'm addicted.

Posted by Kiah Mahri
[display_name id=”1″]

The thing with it is it's processed. I mean, would you rather eat a whole fresh banana or peach (or pick your favorite fruit) that comes with the fiber and vitamins and minerals or something that's been processed in a factory a long time ago without no real vitamins and minerals. Plus the water content in an orange is good and has the same amount of calories as like 7 tiny fruit snacks. They're addicting because you like sweet stuff and fruits are the perfect food.

Don't believe the myth that fruit is too high in sugar, or that fruit causes type 2 diabetes. Also it's the high fructose corn syrup that's extrinsic, isolated, and refined, that's found in soda and other snacks, that's bad for you. Whole natural sugar found in fruits comes with fiber, vitamins and minerals that helps the liver metabolize the fructose.

Here are some myths about fruits thats been debunked by a nutritionist.

9. Fruit causes diabetes/cancer/candida/other scary disease
And cakes cure leprosy. Just like with obesity, fruit is getting the blame for a whole host of serious health complaints and yet – FRUIT CONSUMPTION IS VERY LOW!! Diabetes type 2 is very well researched and the epidemiology is very clear – it is mostly found in overweight, males over 40 who lead a sedentary lifestyle and have a diet high in animal foods (fat and protein) and refined industrialised foods. I suggest you hop onto PubMed and have a little search about in the vast database of real science and see for yourself.

Cancer, diabetes and every single other degenerative disease are also known as 'diseases of civilisation' why is this? Because they are mostly unheard of in cultures who still live a natural ife with a local diet of wholefoods and plenty of physical activity. Certain cancers are correlated with red meat intake, and others with dairy intake – whether that is down to the food itself or because of all the hormones and other additives used in factory farming, hasn't yet been ascertained.

Fruit being low GI is neither a cause nor an issue for diabetics.

As for cancer, fruit is the one main source of anti-cancer phytochemicals and much research has been done about the cancer-fighting and cancer-preventing properties of fruit.

Vegan cooking challenge – using New World ingredients only?

A challenge for you:

Create a vegan dish which only uses as its ingredients plants which are native to South, Central and North America, including the West Indies. Please be creative. Don't just copy from recipe books or websites. You've got plenty of scope – it can be an entrée, a salad, a soup, a main, a side or a dessert… Or even a smoothie or a snack – it's up to you.

There are a few ingredients, such as potatoes and tomatoes, which already have whole cookbooks devoted to them – so it you're going to include them, try to make them just minor ingredients.

Plants native to the Americas include:

Grains: amaranth, quinoa, maize (corn), teosinte, wild rice.
Sweeteners: agave nectar, corn syrup, maple syrup, sweetleaf (stevia), carnauba.
Spices and flavourings: chilli, paprika, cayenne, allspice (pimenta), vanilla, cacao (cocoa), achiote (annatto), angostura, bergamot, sassafras, sarsaparilla, yerba maté, coca leaf (j/k).
Fruit: avocado, babaco, acerola cherry, tamarillo (tree tomato), feijoa, açaí, tomato, capsicum (bell pepper), blueberry, cranberry, barberry, hackberry, service-berry, thimbleberry, wineberry, prickly pear (nopales), guava, sapodilla, monstera, mamey sapote, white sapote (casimiroa), black sapote (black persimmon), American persimmon, canistel (eggfruit), abiu, soursop (guanabana), custard-apple (cherimoya), sweetsop (sugar-apple), pawpaw, papaya, cape gooseberry, tomate verde, tomatillo, chokecherry, capulin, coco-plum, granadilla, imbu, inga, jaboticaba, kamachile, mamoncillo, naranjilla, passionfruit, pepino, pineapple, choko (chayote).
Nuts and seeds: pecan, hickory nut, Brazil nut, black walnut, pine nut, cashew, sunflower seed, monkey puzzle nut (piñones), peanut, sapucaia nut, pumpkin seed.
Roots and tubers: potato, sweet potato (kumara, apichu), oca, maca, melloco (chiqua, ulloco, timbo), aracacha, cassava (tapioca), crinkleroot, Jerusalem artichoke, jicama (yam bean), Peruvian capucine (nasturtium), yampi, yautia (coco-yam), yacón.
Various others: squash, pumpkin, buffalo gourd, green beans, kidney beans, runner beans, pokeweed (polk salad), arrowroot, camash, mastuerzo, nasturtium, sargasso-weed, tangle, dulse, Irish moss (carragheen).
Oils: sunflower, avocado.
You can also use salt, of course.

Just reading through that list (which is far from complete – there are many lesser-known plants I left out to save time and space), imagine what it would have been like to live in the Old World before Columbus' first voyage in 1492. No potatoes, tomatoes, chillies, peanuts, avocados, vanilla, chocolate (not that I eat that anyway), pineapples, etc. Italian cuisine would have been weird without the tomato, and the Irish without the potato, Moroccan and Thai without the chilli…

So, what can you come up with? 10 points for the recipe (or recipes, if you want to try more than one) that really grabs my attention with originality or inventiveness or a really delicious sounding combination – bearing in mind that I don't eat cocoa/chocolate :P.

"Oops! It looks like you have 75 misspelling(s)." Yeah, right! Time to update your spell-check list, Yahoo!
So *if* (not *it*) you're going to …
Good effort, DNA. Not convinced that apples were native to the New World, however.

Nobody else wants to give this a try?
Santo: I have a cookbook using 'biblical' ingredients, called "The good book cookbook" and have made the pottage a few times from a recipe in that.

Yikes, I don't know the taste of a lot of these foods. Anyway, here goes:

For breakfast I would have:
– yerba mate tea mixed with agave nectar for sweetness and a little bit of prickly pear juice for flavor.
-pumpkin stir fried with walnuts and apples over quinoa with a tiny bit of maple syrup as a sweetener.

Lunch: Corn wraps filled with avocado, kidney beans, bell peppers and sweet potato, flavored with chili and cayenne.

Dinner: wild rice mixed with seeds, dulce, potatoes and whatever other greens are available.

For a snack: a fruit salad or handful of nuts.

What are the requirements on growing Yacon via Hydroponics? And how to make the mineral solution for it?

Yacon = Smallanthus sonchifolius.

Posted by Mauriceeeeeee!
[display_name id=”1″]

Hello

Yacon need a long growing season, so plenty of sun, and start growing them early on in the growing season, you'll more than likely will be able to get away with using normal plant nutrient solution, but obviously will do better with specialized hydroponic fertilizer solution, which can be bought online,"i use growth technologies nutrients" if you do by hydro nutrients then start off with HALF the recommended nutrient mix ratio, at's printed on the bottle, them once the tubers have started to form then try increasing the nutrients a little more.

Posted by phoebe
[display_name id=”1″]

Polymnia sonchifolia
Common Names: yacón
Family: Asteraceae/Compositae (aster/daisy family)

Yacón is a coarse textured, robust perennial herbaceous plant with large leaves and little yellow daisy flowers. The plant gets up to 6 ft (1.8 m) tall with an equivalent spread. The stems are thick, hairy and streaked with purple. The leaves are opposite and broad, 8-14 in (20.3-35.6 cm) long with winged petioles. The dainty little flowerheads are about 1 in (2.5 cm) across with yellow rays. They are not very showy and seem a little out of place amongst the huge leaves. Yacón produces spindle shaped storage tubers that can reach 1 ft (0.3 m) in length and weigh up to 5 lbs (2,3 kg), although they are typically less than 0.5 lb (0.2 kg) and 6-8 in (15.2-20.3 cm) in length. They are attached to the swollen stem just beneath the ground surface and point outward like the spokes on a wheel. The tubers have a tan to purplish brown skin and the inside can be white, yellow, violet or orange.

Yacón has huge, attractive leaves that die back during the dry season and are also tender to frost.
Description
Yacón is a coarse textured, robust perennial herbaceous plant with large leaves and little yellow daisy flowers. The plant gets up to 6 ft (1.8 m) tall with an equivalent spread. The stems are thick, hairy and streaked with purple. The leaves are opposite and broad, 8-14 in (20.3-35.6 cm) long with winged petioles. The dainty little flowerheads are about 1 in (2.5 cm) across with yellow rays. They are not very showy and seem a little out of place amongst the huge leaves. Yacón produces spindle shaped storage tubers that can reach 1 ft (0.3 m) in length and weigh up to 5 lbs (2,3 kg), although they are typically less than 0.5 lb (0.2 kg) and 6-8 in (15.2-20.3 cm) in length. They are attached to the swollen stem just beneath the ground surface and point outward like the spokes on a wheel. The tubers have a tan to purplish brown skin and the inside can be white, yellow, violet or orange.

Location
Yacón is native to the Andes from Columbia and northern Argentina to Peru and Equador. It grows in warm-temperate valleys, usually between 2000 ft and 7000 ft (610-2133 m) above sea level, but is cultivated from sea level up to 9000 ft (2743 m). Yacón is a grown as a sweet food crop in Equador and Peru, where children consider the tubers a special treat. In many regions nearly every family has a few plants in their kitchen garden, and yacón has been found in pre-Incan tombs in Peru. Yacón has only recently been introduced to other parts of the world as a novelty root crop and as an experimental source of natural sugars. It is rapidly becoming popular in eastern Asia and New Zealand.

Culture
Yacón grows fast in loose, well-drained acidic to alkaline soils rich in organic matter. It is daylength neutral for tuber development, but in temperate latitudes, flowers are not produced until daylength shortens in the fall. Some years in Zone 8 we get good tuber development but frost kills the plants to the ground before they bloom.
Light: Yacón does well in partial shade to full sun.
Moisture: Yacón grows best in a slightly moisture retentive soil with regular watering. The storage tubers allow it to survive periods of drought.
Hardiness: USDA Zones 7 – 11. Yacón dies to the ground following frost, but the storage tubers permit it to come back in spring as long as they haven't frozen. Yacón needs about 200 days of frost-free weather before the tubers are ready for harvesting.
Propagation: Yacóns in cultivation rarely set seeds. They are propagated from offshoots or "plantlets" removed from the base of the main stem just above the ground; or by dividing the rhizomatous underground stems; or by dividing the the storage tubers; or by rooting cut stems.

These yacón tubers are destined to become crispy additions to salads.
Usage
In frost free areas yacón tubers can be removed without disturbing the plant which will continue to produce more tubers. After flowering, the yacón plant dies back to the ground for a rest period during the dry season and the tubers are usually harvested then. In frosty climes, harvest the tubers after the plant dies to the ground by groping around with your hands under the plant; don't disturb the main roots and the plant will come back in spring and produce more tubers. Yacón tubers are incredibly sweet. The flesh is white and crispy, a little juicier than an apple, but every bit as sweet as the sweetest Red Delicious. Some say they taste like sweet water chestnuts; others compare the taste to an apple and watermelon combination. The tubers get even sweeter after curing in the sun, but they may not be as crisp. Yacón tubers are usually eaten raw, out of hand like a fruit. They are good sliced and added to green salads, or shredded with carrots and raisins for a sweet slaw. In Peru yacón tubers are grated and squeezed through a sieve to make a sweet drink, and the juice is concentrated into blocks of candy called chancaca. Tubers are also boiled or baked and the stems and leaves are cooked and eaten as a vegetable. Yacón retains crunchiness during cooking and is just beginning to come into favor for Asian stir-fried dishes. The leaves contain 11-17% dry weight protein and are useful as a livestock feed.

Features
Most roots and tubers store carbohydrates in the form of starch, a polymer of glucose. Yacón tubers store carbohydrates in the form of inulin, a polymer of sucrose that the human body cannot metabolize. Yacón is therefore an acceptable sweet and starchy food for dieters and diabetics. Although it has few calories and little food value, yacón is an easy to grow sweet treat, and a sure conversation starter. Japanese scientists are studying yacón as a source for purified fructose and a variety of processed products such as pickled slices and dried slices.

There are other species of Polymnia native to the U.S., but they do now produce tubers. Jerusalem artichoke, also in the sunflower family, is another plant that produces inulin in its underground tubers.

You can find it from the medical store. This root has a high content of insulin (inulina) and fructooligosaccharids (FOS) (fructose polymers) which cannot be hydrolyzed by human organism and so they go through the digestive tract without being metabolized, thus supplying less calories than saccharose.

Recommended dose: 1-2 capsules 3 times per day with the meals, with enough liquid.
