No... to my knowledge there isn't a nutrition analysis tool on the WebMD site. If you want to post a few of your favorites here though, I will do the computer analysis on them and will post the nutrition info per serving for you!
I think there are some nutrition analysis tools online, but I'm not sure how accurate they are and you might run into some trouble with your particular ingredients and not knowing how to convert various measurements, etc. Here's a link to the one offered through USDA:
When attending a special dinner that includes a fancy multi course meal...how do you approach it?
I can't eat very much in a meal so when I'm lucky enough to be included in one of these meal "events" my strategy is to enjoy a few bites of every course so that I still have some room to enjoy a few bites of dessert, usually the last course.
I love to look at each course and appreciate how it was presented and the physical appearance of the food and any aromas. Then really focus on the first and second bite, enjoying all of the textures and flavors that it brings forth.
Last night I went to such a food "event" and I still ran out of room (and still feeling comfortable) by the dessert course. So I asked the server to wrap mine up to take home.
I also try not to drink too much liquid because that would decrease the stomach room too. *********************************** What are some of your strategies for enjoying a fancy multi-course dinner without getting uncomfortable?View Thread
Lightening tips for this recipe--although you didn't ask for this : )
* You can eliminate the butter and keep the pretzels a nice crumbly coating on the bottom (you might only need 1 cup if you do this) * You could probably eliminate the sugar in the crust if you do this as well * You can use light cream cheese * You CAN use nonfat Greek yogurt * You can use sugar free strawberry gelatin if desired * You can delete the whipped cream topping or use a lot lessView Thread
Well, I would suggest going to your annual medical exam (if you haven't already) and make sure all is well. Sometimes frequent sleepiness can be a symptom for developing type 2 diabetes--I would want to rule that out if you noticed increased sleepiness is occurring lately.
Beyond that, when people eat larger sized meals or heavy or rich meals, it does make you feel sleepy because some of the blood is diverted from your general circulation to your GI tract to aid in digestion. That's a natural response (similar to what happens after the Thanksgiving feast).
I suggest eating light, sensible portions for most people...where you still feel very energized and comfortable after eating. This discourages post-meal sleepiness, although you will need to most likely eat some sort of snack within a few hours (yogurt with fruit, etc.)View Thread
Just crisp up some turkey bacon strips (or center cut bacon strips) and that's all the cooking you need to do!
Just assemble your satisfying sandwich by placing the turkey bacon strips onto the bottom slice of your sandwich (preferably whole wheat), top it with avocado, fresh tomato slices, raw spinach leaves, and the top slice of bread. Spread on side lightly with light mayonnaise if desired.View Thread
One of the possible differences is that roast beef is usually cooked fully whereas perhaps you are cooking your London Broil rare or medium rare? If there is bacteria on the raw meat and you aren't cooking it fully, you have the possibility of getting the bacteria into your system. If you cooked the meat fully you tend to kill the bacteria.
I am going to post a tip right now that has some information on food poisoning bacteria related to meat--so please check that out when you have a moment.
Thanks for the great question (but sorry you are having to deal with these reactions)View Thread
There are lots of recipes here on the WebMD site that might help you if they follow the following guidelines. I have also written several cookbooks that might help you--you can look at my books by searching Elaine Magee on amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com
Okay...here are the types of recipes you should look for:
(DO run this by your specialist or doctor to make sure this type of diet plan will help you personally with your gout condition)
* reduction in red meat (beef, pork, lamb and liver) intake--if you have it on occasion, try to keep the portions very small. * avoid anchovies, sardines, herring and caviar. * Avoid alcohol intake * high carbohydrate recipes that are lower in fat may help * Emphasize purine-rich vegetables such as peas, beans mushrooms, cauliflower, and spinach * Drink lots of water * emphasizing foods rich in omega-3s such as salmon, walnuts, ground flaxseed)
It's not that the amount of cholesterol in the food we eat doesn't have a possible light negative impact--it's just that other dietary factors like the amount of saturated fat in food has a bigger impact.
So when foods like shrimp which are low in fat and saturated fat are also fairly high in cholesterol, I wouldn't put them in the "avoid or limit" category.
Great question! Thanks EricE for sharing the information from the Endocrinology Society too!View Thread
