How many grams of carbs are recommended per day?

   User Avatar 
   HOW MANY GRAMS OF CARBS ARE RECOMMENDED PER DAY It depends on whether you want to aim for optimum health, in addition to whether you want to lose weight maintain weight or gain weight. Therefore, the question overall is answered using sub headings -- one is for weight loss, one is for weight maintenance or weight gain, and one is for optimum health for all groups. HOW MANY GRAMS OF CARBS ARE RECOMMENDED PER DAY FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT For weight loss 20-60 grams of carbohydrate are recommended per day, depending on your level of activity. However, 60 grams would be rather too much for those who might be insulin resistance and, by that, have great difficulty losing weight, gain weight very easily, or have a history of repeated dieting. Many overweight people have a degree of insulin resistance (often without being aware if it). If this sounds like you, use the lowest level of the carbohydrate range. At the bottom of this answer, you will find a page link leading to a list of low
   carbohydrate foods, and a choice of free low carbohydrate diets, plus page links to free Fruit and Vegetable Carbohydrate Charts to use as daily guides for weight loss. Also, avoid or strictly limit refined processed carbohydrates (apart from an occasional treat). Over-consumption of refined processed carbohydrate is a major cause of weight gain, obesity, heart disease and many other diet related diseases. (You can read more about this, further down this page, in the section that is for all groups). At the bottom of this answer there is also a page link leading to a full list of refined processed carbohydrates. In addition, replace refined processed carbohydrate with more of the so called 'fat burning foods and take full advantage of the fat burning thermic effect of these nutritious foods. Again, at the bottom of this answer, you will find a page link leading to a list of fat burning foods and more in depth information about the thermic effect of food. HOW MANY GRAMS OF CARBS ARE
   RECOMMENDED PER DAY FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO MAINTAIN WEIGHT OR GAIN WEIGHT If you are not trying to lose weight, 180-230 grams are sometimes recommended. Please note, however, that unlike protein or fat there is no minimum daily requirement of carbohydrate for good health or to sustain life. For free Fruit and Vegetable Carbohydrate Charts to use as daily guides for weight maintenance, or weight gain, and for a free list of the foods to avoid or strictly limit for optimum health, use page links at the bottom of this answer. CRUCIAL HEALTH ADVICE FOR ALL GROUPS Irrespective of how many grams of carbs are recommended per day for you as an individual, for optimum health you need to avoid or strictly limit refined processed carbohydrates (apart from an occasional treat). Over-consumption of these particular carbohydrates is a major cause of many diet related diseases and conditions. The diseases, often referred to as diseases of Western civilization, such as insulin resistance, high blood
   pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, weight gain, obesity, and many other diet related diseases and conditions, became pervasive in the twentieth century primarily because of our high consumption of refined processed carbohydrates. At the bottom of this answer, you will find a page link leading to a full list of these foods. SUMMARY: FOR ALL GROUPS Now that you know how many grams of carbs are recommended per day for you, lets summarize the advice given. For health, weight loss, weight maintenance, or weight gain, strictly limit refined processed carbohydrates. As stated earlier, over-consumption of these foods is a major cause of many diet related diseases and conditions. In addition to counting carbohydrates, if you are able bodied and want to aim further for optimum health, add weight/strength training exercises to your health regime. Male or female, beginner or more advanced, you are never too old to benefit from exercise. Exercise is like the Fountain of Youth! At the bottom of
   this answer, you will find a page link leading to free weight/strength training exercises suitable for beginners onwards. In addition, to the many benefits of weight/strength training, more muscle will enable you to eat more food without gaining weight. This is because muscle is your Metabolic Furnace that burns body fat twenty-four hours a day and not just when you are exercising.

Is breakfast the most important meal of the day?

   User Avatar 
   More research is needed to get a conclusive answer, but some studies have suggested that eating a nutritious meal in the morning does help to kickstart your metabolism. Nutritious is the keyword here, as there’s obviously a big difference between eggs and donuts when it comes to a beneficial breakfast. It’s also been shown that going without breakfast is associated with a higher Body Mass Index. The weight aspect aside, most experts seem to be in favor of a well-balanced breakfast that includes protein, whole grain, and a fruit or vegetable. However, the tagline "breakfast is the most important meal of the day" was actually coined by cereal companies as a marketing tactic, so it’s fair to be a little skeptical of breakfast’s supposed benefits. And what’s more, there’s some research to back up that skepticism—one recent review found no significant weight management benefits to eating breakfast. "The key message is that if a person likes to eat breakfast, that is fine. However, there
   is no evidence that we should be encouraging people to change their eating pattern to include breakfast in order to prevent weight gain or obesity," Flavia Cicuttini, senior author of the review, said.

How can you make yourself stop touching your face?

   User Avatar 
   If it helps, you’re not the only one. According to a 2015 study, people touch their faces an average of 23 times per hour. That’s a pretty tough habit to break, but doing so could significantly decrease your risk of contracting infections. One of the most common ways for infections to spread is when you touch something, picking up a germ, and then rub your eyes, nose, or mouth. To kick the habit, experts in hand hygiene (which, yes, is a real thing you can be an expert in) suggest changing something in your environment, like wearing something on your hands or face, to make you realize you’re touching your face. If you’re aware you’re doing it, you can train yourself to stop. And if you really need to scratch your nose or something, they suggest covering your hand in a tissue.

Is drinking too much water toxic?

   User Avatar 
   Yes, drinking too much water can be toxic - except it is very hard to drink too much fresh, clean water to be able to die. Normal healthy people would need to drink on the order of 20 liters per day for it to be toxic but people with some medical problems, particularly the elderly and very young, can get toxic on much lesser amounts. Also people with psychiatric disorders, most notably schizophrenia. Drinking too much water is called polydipsia. This, as well as several other processes, can cause low blood concentrations of sodium, which is known as (dilutional) hyponatremia.

Asked in Health, Exercise, Weightlifting, Weight Training and Strength Training


How long does it take to see weight lifting results?

   User Avatar 
   You can get results in 1-2 weeks. That is, you can 'feel' some muscles growing, but dont expect to look noticably different. On the first day lift weights for about 30 mins, and make sure you lift weights that are 'reasonably heavy' but not to an extent that you are struggling after the 3rd lift (rep). Your muscles must hurt for a few days after this session, to the extent that when you extend your arm it hurts, and when you do a sit up it hurts. If they don't , you need to go back and lift heavier weights. Once you have completed this initial session, you need to increase your weights marginally each session. For toning your body you generally go for less weights but more reps. For big muscles you go for bigger weights but fewer reps. Also, make sure you rest your muscles for at least 48 hours otherwise you could actually go backwards! So on day one you might do biceps and abs, on day 2 you do chest and triceps. If you go to the gym 4 or 5 days a week, I promise you will notice some
   difference (or moreso 'feeling' ) in about 2 weeks. After 4 you will notice your biceps and chest musles will be bigger. After 6 bigger, etc etc. The more results you get, the more research you can do on better exercisies , diet, etc. Finally, its important to know how muscles develop: when you lift weights you are sort of 'damaging' or tearing your muscles. Your body needs to repair them, which it does in the 48 hour rest period, but actually makes the muscle slightly bigger 'just in case'. This is why you need to increase your weights marginally after each training session.

Is using hand sanitizer just as good as washing your hands?

   Not really. Obviously, sanitizer is better than nothing, but washing your hands is preferable in a variety of circumstances.There are certain kinds of germs that sanitizers aren’t great at getting rid of, and many people don’t use them properly (not using enough or wiping it off prematurely, for example). Hand washing is also a better option when your hands are visibly greasy or dirty, and it’s much better at getting rid of harmful chemicals like pesticides.However, hand washing isn’t always convenient, and there are so many cute and good-smelling hand sanitizers in the world, it would be a shame to forsake them entirely. If you use hand sanitizers, you want one with at least 60 percent alcohol for maximum effectiveness.

Asked by Derick Treutel in Drinking Water, Health


Do I really need to drink eight glasses of water per day?

   User Avatar 
   Although conventional wisdom holds that humans need eight, 8-ounce glasses of water each day, the truth is a little more complicated. According to The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, an adequate daily fluid intake is about 125 ounces (3.7 liters) for men and about 91 ounces (2.7 liters) for women. However, keep in mind that these fluid intake guidelines include all sources of water, not just glasses of the stuff. In fact, we get about 20 percent of our daily water from what we eat, especially fruits and vegetables. The truth is that when it comes to hydration, one size does not fit all. There are many factors that should influence an individual’s daily water intake, including where you live, your activity level, and your overall health. So while there is no scientific evidence that supports the “8x8 rule,” staying hydrated is still important. The best advice is to trust your own body, and when you’re thirsty, reach for water first.

Asked in Health, Vitamins and Supplements, Urinary System


Is bright yellow urine normal?

   User Avatar 
   It's not necessarily a danger sign. You may be simply offloading a high concentration of vitamin C (which, when you over-consume, simply dumps the excess to the urine), or betacarotene, the precursor to vitamin A, and the coloring agent in lots of orange fruits and veggies such as carrots or cantaloupe. Also, a lot of the B-vitamins can have this exact effect. If the urine is clear, this is a good sign and makes the vitamin density the most likely explanation. It could also mean that you're somewhat dehydrated and you're expelling very rich urine. In that case - rehydrate! :} Note that this works better with liquids that have some electrolytes in them - some salts. These include sports drinks like Gatorade, various juices (such as orange, pineapple or tomato), or simply drinking water and having a banana or two (high in potassium - an electrolyte). Far less common are cases of kidney problems. But if this is a new phenomenon for you, and has no other symptoms, I wouldn't worry unless it
   persists. I would definitely rather be excreting excess vitamins in my bright yellow (normal) urine, than having clear urine and vitamin-starved body cells. More comments from WikiAnswers contributors: Asparagus is another veggie that will make your urine bright yellow. Drink lots of water (8 glasses a day) and that will help to flush out the kidneys. Bright yellow urine can mean that your body is dehydrated and also it can mean you are highly acidic. Yellow urine indicates that a person is able to flush out acids stored in the body or that a person's body is not able to process the food that he is eating. If it is the first situation it is good. If it is second situation it is bad. Liver does not get any water if taken with meals or shortly afterward. Such water is flushed out of the body faster. One should drink 1 hour before meals to be able to get the water to the liver. Except for this period one should not drink water. Drinking one hours before meals will help water to stay in the
   body for a longer period and work on the acids and toxins for a longer time. Taking certain vitamins will turn your urine intensely yellow. Urine should be almost clear in color, if you're drinking enough clear fluids. The less you drink, the darker your urine will become, and some medications will affect urine color. If you're not taking meds, then up your water intake; drinking cranberry juice also helps the kidneys to flush any toxins which can lead to urinary tract infections. Water, water and more water! Six 8 oz. glasses a day is what is good for you, but even 4-5 will make a difference. To add, it is usually the B Vitamins, found either in multivitamins or as a additional supplement, that can make urine bright yellow or even orange. Other medications, such as ones for urinary tract infections, can do the same thing (such as phenazopydidine, AZO-standard, etc.). Read the information the pharmacy gives along with any prescription medication you are taking to see if this is a common
   side effect of them. Otherwise, you can certainly see a physician if you are concerned. Although this is a commonly mentioned "fact" in the news, there is no scientific evidence behind the "8 glasses of water a day" theory. Before you spend a bunch of money on supplements (many of which are useless), try drinking more water. Urine is yellow because the major waste product of the blood, bilirubin converts to urobilin in the kidneys. Urobilins are yellow. Drinking more water will dilute your urine and it will appear clearer. While it is true that many are re-thinking the "8 glasses a day theory," it is also true that not being properly hydrated can cause urine that is bright yellow in color. B Vitamins and other medications can also cause discolored urine. Pay attention to your fluid intake (and remember to drink before you feel thirsty), and you should see a change in color.

How to build muscle and burn fat?

   User Avatar 
   HOW TO BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT (suitable for men or women) How to build muscle and burn fat? Well, the correct ways to burn fat and build muscle are through specific eating habits and specific exercises. The best overall approach involves three components: (1) Eating specific foods (2) Weight/Strength training (3) Cardiovascular (cardio) exercise Awaiting you at the bottom of this answer, are links to free lists of foods to eat and foods to avoid, choices of free cardio exercise plans, and free weight/strength training exercises/routines. These links will guide you at your own pace; clearly showing you step by step how to build muscle and burn fat. First, on this page, let me give you an overview of the three component parts. (1) HOW TO BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT THROUGH EATING Here's how to cut through all the confusion about correct eating. Eat a small meal about every three waking hours. You will not be eating more food, you will simply be spreading it throughout the day. It's critical
   never to skip a meal, and to obtain sufficient quality protein at each meal. 'Sufficient' means at least 15 grams per feeding if you are female and at least 20 grams per feeding if you are male. Your protein should come from unprocessed (preferably organic where possible), natural sources. To lose body fat, and for optimum health, avoid or strictly limit refined processed carbohydrates (apart from an occasional treat). Over-consumption of refined processed carbohydrates is a major cause of unwanted body fat, insulin resistance, fat accumulating around the abdomen or stomach, overall weight gain, obesity, hypertension, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and many other diet related diseases and conditions. If you are unsure what these foods are, at the bottom of this answer you will find a page link leading to a list of refined processed carbohydrates. Replace refined processed carbohydrates with more of the so-called fat burning foods and make use of the thermic effect of fat burning foods.
   Drink plenty of fresh water to enable you body to process these foods. I suggest 3 quarts daily and adjusting your intake from there (unless you have a medical condition that would prohibit this). If you are unsure what these foods are, at the bottom of this answer you will find a page link leading to a full list, and more detailed information about the thermic effect of food. Eating this way (as outlined above) will significantly boost your metabolism. Increasing your metabolic rate is the key to achieving and sustaining a low percentage of body fat. Again, remember to drink plenty of clean water. As stated earlier, I suggest 3 quarts daily and adjusting your intake from there (unless you have a medical condition that would prohibit this). (2) HOW TO BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT THROUGH WEIGHT/ STRENGTH TRAINING Proper weight/strength training will build muscle, which is your METABOLIC FURNACE that burns additional calories 24 hours a day and not just when you are exercising. Do a whole body
   routine. Concentrate on the basic, compound exercises, which are full squats, deadlifts, presses, rows, dips, and chins. Learn proper exercise technique and use it on every rep. Once you are able to train intensely, you'll experience DOMS. In order to ensure systemic recovery, wait 24 or 48 hours after all DOMS has disappeared before training again. Remember: you do not grow in the gym. What you do in the gym should stimulate growth during the recovery period. Exercise is like medicine: too little is ineffective and too much is counter-productive. Therefore, between sessions get plenty of rest and sleep. As stated earlier, at the bottom of this answer, you can find page links to free exercises/routines suitable for beginners and upwards, as well as relevant information such as safety and warm-up tips. (3) HOW TO BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT THROUGH CARDIOVASCULAR (CARDIO) EXERCISE Here are a few examples of cardio exercise: brisk walking on a treadmill or outdoors running on a treadmill or
   outdoors rowing cross-country skiing trampolining nordic walking aerobic dancing In fact, any exercise, sport or activity that increases your heart and respiration rate for a specific period is cardio exercise. It is important to do cardio exercise at the right intensity. Cardio exercise ranges from mild to intense. Unlike mild cardio, intense cardio must always be brief. Intense cardio exercises include running, interval training, and graded exercise protocol. Brisk walking is an example of mild cardio exercise. Mild cardio exercises keep your maximum heart rate at about 60 to 65%. Intense cardio exercises involve a maximum heart rate that is considerably higher (usually up to about 85% or even 90%). In terms of burning fat during exercise, mild cardio is superior to intense cardio. So, you might think that everyone should do mild cardio exercise. That is incorrect. Mild cardio exercises are not effective fat burning exercises in the long-term. WHY? Well, they do actually burn more fat
   than intense cardio exercise. Unfortunately, by doing them regularly, your body adapts to mild cardio by storing fat during the recovery period until your next mild cardio exercise session. This is bad. You want to burn fat not store it! Whereas, intense cardio burns more fat overall because it stimulates more fat burning between intense cardio exercise sessions. In addition, because intense cardio is intense, it must be brief, (whereas mild cardio is prolonged). By that, intense cardio is great for people who are lazy, or do not like prolonged exercise, or grow bored by it, or do not have the time. Nonetheless, if you are new to exercise and wish to begin with mild cardio such as brisk walking see the choice of plans at the bottom of this answer, and then progress to intense cardio (see the intense cardio plan at the bottom of this answer). Whatever cardio you choose (mild or intense), choose a cardio exercise that you dislike the least and that you will stick to without giving up after
   the first week or so. Cardio exercise will increase the amount of calories your body uses during and immediately after exercise. HOW TO BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT, SUMMARY So, the best way to build muscle and burn fat is to eat as outlined in the earlier part of this answer, and combine cardio exercise with weight/strength training. You can use this sustainable program from now until your dotage. If you adopt it and make it habitual, you are going to know how to build muscle and burn fat, like the way you look, and love the way you feel! Depending upon your current degree of fitness, I suggest two to three intense cardio sessions per week. In particular, if you have not been doing intense cardio exercise, I recommend starting with GXP (see the Intense Cardio Plan 3 page link at the bottom of this answer). Even if you do twice weekly strength-training as well as intense fitness exercise two or three times weekly, if you want to go further it's also a good idea to go for a brisk walk once a
   week. 'Brisk' means 2 miles in 30 minutes, 3 miles in 45 minutes, or 4 miles in 60 minutes. For weight loss or health, even if you start with mild cardio that will be a great step forward, and then move on to intense cardio exercise as soon as you are able. Cardio exercise will increase the amount of calories your body uses during and immediately after exercise. Weight/strength training will add more muscle and muscle is you METABOLIC FURNACE that burns calories 24 hours per day and not just when you are exercising. (Don't worry you don't have to build huge muscle (unless you want to.) Moreover, in addition to adding muscle, weight/strength training benefits your body in so many, many ways. One should never underestimate the benefits of weight/strength training for optimum health. Male of female, young or older, you are never too old to benefit from some form of weight/strength training. The free exercises and programs at the bottom of this answer are suitable for males or females,
   beginners of more advanced, young or old. Therefore, when you combine weight/strength training with cardio exercise you not only have the best answer for 'how to build muscle and burn fat' you also have the best exercise answer for optimum health. (Incidentally, even people who cannot engage in cardio exercise because of injuries, or specific health conditions, can usually engage in some from of weight/strength training and, by that, enjoy its many, many health benefits.)
