I live with a group of friends and we all take it in turns to cook dinner one day of the night, which usually consists of lasagne, pasta, rice etc.
I am wondering if I could lose weight if I ate low carb for breakfast and lunch, and then ate dinner that is prepared by my housemates? [more inside]

I was researching sequential eating and would like some advice, here are my thoughts and questions: It seems that it takes (on average) 2-4 hours for foods or beverages to leave the stomach.
I was wanting to eat/drink something specific every two hours.
I have 8 hours to sleep every night, and I like to eat right before sleep as well.
This leaves me with 16 hours in a wakened state. Or, 9 segments of eating/drinking. (I drink water right when I wake up)
On the basis of sequential eating, what are some useful tips/advice I could keep in consideration while putting together snacks of 1-3 things?
It's looking like 4 meals a day, 5 drinks a day, alternating every two hours. OR, what I would rather prefer, is eating 9 meals a day (fruit in the morning with my water), and drinking 6oz of water every hour on the dot. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm losing focus on my weight loss goals and I don't want to fall off the wagon. I have had to fight hard to lose what I have lost, and I do not want to back track. How do you get your head back in the game and really find the time to focus on it and prioritize it when your life has become extremely busy? [more inside]

I'm looking for novels where the protagonist loses weight / gets fit. This doesn't need to be the central thing in the book, but while the protagonist saves the world from the zombie apocalypse, finds true love or destroys the ring in the fires of Mordor, can s/he also get in shape? [more inside]

Help me find a registered dietitian in NYC!
I recently had my gallbladder out, and while I ate healthy before, I am looking to meet up with an RD who can help me modify my eating plans and advise me on how to eat now that I do not have a gallbladder! I have to admit I am a little paranoid about gaining weight, which is why I am looking to get a professional's opinion. [more inside]

I know someone who has been quite healthy for 20 years on a diet of nothing but plain spaghetti and chocolate milk (and occasionally meat once every few weeks). He has been to doctors and dentists and has no health problems or vitamin deficiencies, has perfectly straight teeth and no cavities. How is this possible?! [more inside]

So I have seen that the hive came up with some really good answers as far as WHAT to eat when the post-herbal munchies attack.
But what (if anything) can PREVENT the munchies from happening at all? And while we're discussing that, perhaps someone can explain why they happen in the first place...

About 1/ week, I have a major sugar binge. It's always candy and never cake or other sweets. I usually end up eating more than a couple servings of candy in these binges. Now, I am a healthy weight, and my diet in every other way is balanced and healthy for the most part. I am wondering how bad of a health impact these sugar binges can have? Especially in the long term. I am in my mid-20's.

Yet another Healthy Eating question! Naturally thin people (and people who've maintained significant weight loss for a long time): do you manage your meals/portions in such a way that you never are really concerned about how much you've eaten, OR, are you constantly compensating for eating too much or too calorically?

I have two weeks off for christmas and I would like to use that time to do a very effective liver, colon, kidney cleanse. Can someone please give me a detailed plan including which order to do the cleanses; I've heard to do kidneys before liver so you can properly flush. I'm interested in what my meals should look like (juice fast, master cleanse, raw foods) as well as what supplements are helpful to expel crap from my guts. My goal is not weightloss. I tend to breakout in rashes after meals and I plan to slowly reintroduce foods after the cleanse to gauge what foods I have negative reactions to. It might be relevant to mention that I eat fish and eggs and cheese but no other animal products. Thanks for all your help.
