While a layman may come to the obvious conclusion that a stimulant such as caffeine may be inappropriate for a cardiac patient, this is patently a question that should be asked of one's personal physician. Only your own doctor - or other medical professional - having personal knowledge of your situ…ation, can provide a meaningful answer to what food and/or drink you should have, and in what quantities. I urge that any who wonder about such things consult with a qualified medical professional at once. (MORE)

The amount, in grams, of carbohydrates that a female consumes per day is determined by the age of the person, the height/weight of the person, and how active this person is on a daily basis. The more active you are, the more carbohydrates you will need to consume. The less active you are, the less c…arbohydrates you should be consuming. Complex carbohydrates are must "better" for you (such as those found in pastas) than simple carbohydrates are (such as those found in candy bars). . If you are trying to lose weight, 20 - 50 grams are recommended. Avoid refined (processed) carbohydrates. For weight loss, get your carbohydrates from natural sources such as (preferably organic) fresh non-starchy vegetables and low-carb fruits such as berries. If you are trying to lose weight, see the related question and answer, further down this page, listed under "Related Questions." (MORE)
The average adult should have a minimum of 2000mg-3000mg of potassium per day. This can be achieved through the natural consumption of certain kinds of foods, particularly fruits and vegetables. There are circumstances where potassium is readily lost and needs to be replenished in excess of the mini…mum daily amount listed above. The number is smaller for children and infants. Anyone with concerns of potassium deficiency, due to food allergies or special dietary requirements, where natural sources for potassium are precluded; should consult a doctor about the exact dosage they need to supplement each day. Potassium is essential for muscle health, particularly the heart. A deficiency, among other things, can cause muscle cramping and in extreme cases, can cause death. People on "low carb diets" will find they need to take special care to get the proper amount of potassium each day, as potassium is used in the ketosis process to diffuse byproduct chemicals left in the bloodstream; therefore additional potassium is needed regularly to replenish the body's potassium stores. Potassium is diffused by the kidneys, through sweat, urine or other bodily excretions. In this manner, excess potassium is removed from the body through urination and sweating. Barring kidney trouble, it is difficult to actually overdose on potassium, but not impossible. People should consume more potassium after intense sweating, if your diet is high in salt or in case of abnormal or extraordinary bodily excretions (such as vomiting or diarrhea) as these will result in a loss of potassium in the excreted bodily fluids. Supplemental potassium can also be needed if you are on certain kinds of heart medicine. Muscle cramps are typically a sign of one being low in potassium. (MORE)
well im 11 too dont worry about calories...just eat healthily and only eat when your huingry and dont overeat
Multiply your weight in pounds by .66 than divide that number by 8. This gives you the actual number of 8oz. glasses you should consume daily. Example: 125lbs. x .66= 82.5 82.5 divide /8= 10.31 glasses per day I would suggest an average of about 8 glasses everyday, enough that your uri…ne is clear. In countries where there is less humidity 10 glasses might not be required but in hot and humid countries 10 glasses becomes essential to prevent dehydration.Daily water consumption is necessary for hydration. On average, anindividual should consume between 6-8 glasses of water daily. Agreat way to incorporate these regime is to carry water in tow toensure that you are hydrated throughout the day. (MORE)
"The minimum daily requirement is zero". This is for REFINED sugar, like the processed stuff. It is NOT true that you don't need any sugar in your diet. Sure, you might get away with not eating it for a day or two, but we do actually need sugar in our blood. Although there is apparently no daily mi…nimum requirement for refined sugar, you get sugar naturally from fruit. It is not really possible to completely cut out sugar from the diet, and you wouldn't want to do that anyway, it would be dangerous. However, as long as you are a normally healthy person (not got some kind of health problem where you have inadequate blood sugar levels, for example) you could probably easily give up the sort of sugar that most people will be thinking of, the type not found in plants but in ice-cream, chocolate, etc. as long as you ate fruit. I have looked around, and I can't find anything on minimum sugar intake from plants. I'll come back and update if I find something. (MORE)
If you were to consume too much potassium it could mess up your mineral balance, which could lead to heart and kidney problems. In healthy individuals it has not been a problem though. You implode!!
Between 120-150 lbs. Everyone is different with their muscle mass and shape sizes. I am trying to reach the goal of 125lbs. Right now I weight 143.5lbs and I am not comfortable in my clothes!
Depends on the frame size. Weight can range from around 125 to 163 lbs; average is around 146 lbs, plus or minus.
Just a tiny bit. A lot of food contains salt so you really don't need to add a lot of salt. drinking a lot of water is also important, in keeping salt levels low.
No, not unless your are planning on sweating alot. Gatorade has a great amount of sodium (salt) in it. A much better alternative would be bananas. bananas are FILLED with potassium. (dont binge though. You know, they do use potassium to put death row inmates to rest.) Another good source of pota…ssium is sweet potatoes. (MORE)
It really depends on activity level. Assuming you are very inactive approx. 1350 calories to maintain your weight. Age also makes a difference though.

8 glasses but you really should not drink that much also you can consume(drink) more or less if you wish to
you can use the really accurate formula from Harris-Benedict: 1)first of all find your BMR(basal metabolic rate)..in other words the amount of calories you'd spend staying all day in bed.. men :BMR = 66 + [13.7 x weight(kg)] + [5 x height(cm)] - [6.8 x age(years)] ->WOMEN :BMR = 655 + [9.6 x… weight(kg)] + [1.8 x height(cm)] - [4.7 x age(years)] where, weight in kgs = weight in lbs / 2.2 height in cm = height in inches / 0.394 2)find your daily caloric needs for maintenaning your weight depending on haw active you are.. daily calories intake for maintenance = BMR x activity level where activity level, a)sedentary,little or no excercise = 1.2 b)light excercise,sports 1-2 times per week = 1.375 c) moderate excercise, sports 3-5 times per week = 1.55 d) hard excercise, sports 6-7 times per week = 1.725 e) very hard excercise, double daily excercise = 1.9 you can decrease/increase you daily calories intake for maintenance, whether you want to lose/gain weight....try about 500 kcals...

If you are taking hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ), the diuretic, it may cause you to excrete potassium in the urine that must then be replaced in the diet to keep your blood levels normal. . Often doctors will suggest you include a high-potassium food each day, such as a banana or a glass of orange juic…e, or potatoes. If this does not keep your potassium blood level normal, then you may be prescribed a potassium supplement. . How much YOU need depends on YOUR blood test (because it depends on how much HCTZ you are on and what amount of potassium is normally present in your diet). Your doctor will adjust your potassium supplement based on monitored blood tests to keep your blood potassium level within normal range. You should not try to take an amount that you guess will work based on what someone else takes. This needs to be a prescription from your MD! (MORE)
It varies on many factors like your body mass, how active you arethrough out the day. Here are some numbers which you can use to determine your dailycaloric intake: Very low activity(sitting around all day): 34.8cal/kg Light activity(having a day out, walking): 38.4cal/kg Moderate activity(light jo…gging, swimming, easy exercise):40.8cal/kg Very high activity(bootcamp, high intensity exercises lasting morethan 30 min): 48cal/kg Using these numbers u simply need to multiply your weight withthem. So lets say you weight 75kg then 75 x 38.4 = 2880calories thenumber you get is your daily caloric intake. That is assuming you weigh 75kg and aren't overweight. If you were obese and wanted to loose weight, you would use notyour actual weight, but your goal weight in this equation. (MORE)

If you have a calculator, you can work out how many calories by entering your current weight, goal weight (can be same as current weight), height, age and level of activity. You will then get a break down of how many calories to consume for either weight maintenance, weight loss, or weight gain. Som…e calculators will also break down how many calories you might burn based on height and weight for certain intervals or exercise. Here is a general guide: . 2,000 or 2,300 if you are more physically active. . For weight loss, start by eating 300 to 500 fewer calories per day if you need to lose weight, and exercise more. If this does not work, count carbohydrates rather than calories. Bear in mind that less than 1,500 calories daily will put a serious strain on your nutritional requirements and your health and that the average woman will need between 1,700 to 2,000 calories each day to provide basic energy (MORE)

Every diabetic is different. So I would say start at 45 (if you are female) or 55 (if you are male) carbs per meal for three meals a day. Then it is pretty much trial and error from there, just find what works for you and your diabetes. Test frequently to make sure you are on the right track. Good l…uck! (MORE)
