Brief Answer: Please refer to the following answer... Detailed Answer: Hi, Brown rice is an excellent choice to be consumed regularly as it contains fewer calories than white rice and has more benefits. The main purpose of taking chia seeds is to control hunger, thus, leading to weight loss. So, if you are overweight, and want to lose weight, that could be a good start. However, remember that you should do some other changes in your lifestyle and diet regimen together with chia use. Hope it answered to your inquiries! Feel free to ask other questions you have at the next follow up. Dr.Sejdini

Brief Answer: Encouraged eating healthy foods&more water... Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for writing back. I usually recommend my patients to eat all types of food depending on their location and traditional customs: - do not skip meal - eat often, small portions, and slowly - drink plenty of water (to help your body clean) - eat fruits and vegetables - avoid processed, oily, fried foods - avoid carbonated drinks - if you like energetic drinks, try not to have more than 2 /day. However, water is the only drink I strongly advise. With regards to flaxseed, and other grains, they are also great options as they are rich in beneficial fatty acids. Avocado and other fruits of your locality are also great choice and I strongly advise eating them. Wish you health! If you have other questions, do not hesitate to write me back at the next follow up. Dr.Alba
