Frequently Asked Nutrition Questions

Q: How much weight do I need to lose to see a difference in my health?

Answer: Studies show that slow and steady weight loss has the most benefits long term. Just a 5% weight loss will improve blood pressure, fasting blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood triglyceride levels.  Small diet and physical activity changes are encouraged for better ease at sustaining these changes every time.

 

Q:  Are using over-the-counter weight loss supplements a good way to lose weight?

Answer: Unfortunately, over-the-counter weight loss supplements are a short term solution to a long term problem. Weight loss supplements rarely show lasting results, they are not regulated by the FDA, and there is no scientific evidence that they truly work. Regular physical activity and healthy, satisfying food choices are your best bet for weight loss. Try including a lean source of protein at every meal and snack and a variety of high fiber foods such as whole grains, fruit, and vegetables for hunger control.

 

Q:  How does sleep affect my weight?

Answer: Recent research suggests that hunger hormones are unbalanced when we are sleep deprived; catching up on sleep will help to normalize them.  At least 7 hours of sleep per night is suggested for hunger hormone regulation and improved energy levels. 

 

Q: How much water should I drink to stay healthy?

Answer:  Many factors affect a person’s fluid needs: health status, activity level, environment, pregnancy, or lactation.  You have probably heard that most people need 8, 8 ounce glasses of water a day.  This is a very easy way to remember water needs, but it is a very general recommendation. The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly about 13 cups (3 liters) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is about 9 cups (2.2 liters) of total beverages a day. Although water is the most essential beverage source for the human body, it is not the only hydrating source that we consume.  Milk, fruit juice, smoothies, broth, decaffeinated tea and coffee, chunks of fruit and vegetables are also great sources of fluids.  Try to make water your primary source of fluid intake since it is calorie free, inexpensive, and readily available.  If you are worried that you are not getting enough fluid, look for symptoms such as dark colored urine, headaches, dizziness, frequent thirst, confusion, sunken in eyes, or dry skin and see if they improve with increased fluid intake. 

 

Q: Should everyone take a multivitamin?

Answer:  No, not necessarily.  Multivitamins/minerals are not needed if you have a well rounded, healthy diet.  While a balanced diet plentiful in whole foods is preferred by health professionals, a diet that fueled by processed, packaged foods can certainly provide the nutrients essential for good health.  Processed and packaged foods are fortified with vitamins and nutrients. According to Katherine Zeratsky, a registered dietitian at the Mayo Clinic, "Most people, if they are eating a generally healthy diet -- not a perfect diet, but a generally healthy diet, don't need a multivitamin. With things like breakfast cereals, nutrition bars, fortified grains and bread, because all those foods are fortified with other minerals, we are getting more than we realize and more than we need."

 

Q:  When are supplements recommended for a healthy adult?

Answer: If an individual can’t tolerate a certain food group or they are avoiding a food group for other reasons, a supplement may be needed.   For example, if someone cannot tolerate dairy, they may need a calcium supplement. A vegetarian may need supplementation depending on the foods they are excluding from their diet.  There are also certain stages in life when people may require higher doses of vitamins/minerals.  For example, pregnant and lactating woman require supplementation.  Always check with your health care provider before supplementing your diet. 

 

Q:  Is snacking healthy?

Answer: Absolutely!  Think of your snacks as “mini meals;” they should include at least 2 of the food groups.  Snacks are your chance to make up for any of the food groups you missed out on in your meals.  Try to always include a quality, lean source of protein and a high fiber carbohydrate in your snack.  Some examples, all natural peanut butter and apple slices, hummus and fresh vegetables or whole grain pita bread, yogurt with berries and almond slices, string cheese and a fresh pear, or a small handful of nuts and fruit.  Plan your snacks ahead so you are ready when hunger strikes.

 

Q: Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day?

Answer: Eating breakfast is very important, but the truth is all meals are important!  Try not to skip meals.  For optimal energy and good health, strive for 3 balanced meals and 2-3 healthy snacks per day.  Try to include as many food groups as possible at each meal, makeup for any lacking food groups at snacks.  Visit http://www.choosemyplate.gov/ for information on food groups and meal balancing.

 

Q:  How much exercise should I do?
Answer: The ultimate goal is to work up to 30 minutes of moderate to intense exercise on most days of the week, ideally all.  Aerobic activity should be done on most of those days and strength training should be done 2-3 days per week.  With that being said, one needs to start where they feel comfortable.  If you are new to exercise, you may feel comfortable with 30 minutes of activity 3 days per week or even 15 minutes of activity, twice per day, 2-3 days per week.  Where ever you are with exercise, start out slow and gradually increase.  What matters most is that you are moving! 

 

Q: What type of exercise is the best?

Answer: Truthfully, whatever gets you to move!  This is completely up to you.  Most people do well with having a variety of activities to choose from.  For example, maybe you like walking, swimming, and yoga.  It is always good to have a backup exercise routine plan for when boredom or other restraints set in.  Ask your doctor if there are any limits on what you can do. 

 

Q: What is Body Mass Index (BMI), is it a good tool? 

Answer: Body Mass Index, BMI is a mathematical equation that uses weight and height to determine body fatness. According to the National Institutes of Health the guidelines are as follows: a BMI at 30 or greater indicates obesity, a BMI at 25 or greater indicates a person is overweight, 18.5-25.9 is considered normal, and below 18.5 is considered underweight.  What does the BMI not account for, muscle mass.  The lack of accounting for muscle mass, makes some health experts question the reliability of BMI.  Some experts rather use waist circumference as a tool for indicating obesity.
