@PinkAndPearls2013:  I am about to start weight training, and I’m tempted to not count calories and just stick to eating as much lean meat/veggies as I would like. Is this okay or a recipe for disaster?

I’ll play!

With paleo/primal diets gaining popularity, have you been seeing any shift in your field about dietary approaches? Such as a professional movement more away from high-carb/low-fat towards a more moderate-fat/moderate-protein/low-carb approach?

(I for one have had great success with that eating philosophy. Not for weight loss, I’ve always been underweight according to my BMI, but with my general health. Such as my HDL levels nearly doubling, and that I haven’t had a migraine in almost 2 years, etc.)

What are the most important vitamins I should be getting in my diet?

Is “starvation mode” a real thing? Like, if I cut too many calories my body won’t lose any weight? I’m 4 months post-partum, exercise, exclusively breastfeed, get a minimum of 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night, and eat around 1300 calories during the day (that’s honestly all I’m hungry for!)…and I’m gaining weight! It’s so frustrating 🙁 Thanks for any insight!

This is great: thanks for offering it!

I’m gluten-intolerant and not sure if I’m getting enough fiber in my diet, but I’ve heard that fiber supplements don’t work as well as foods that actually contain fiber. What fiber-filled foods would you recommend to someone who can’t tolerate gluten?

Hi, this is a brilliant idea for a post btw.

I have celiac (or coeliac, depending which part of the world you’re from) disease and I am also vegan (not by choice, due to severe allergies) so I cannot eat meat, fish, eggs, dairy, wheat, gluten, oats, barley, malt, avenin etc.

Fiance and I are going to start trying for a baby on our honeymoon and we are trying to get as healthy as possible before then. We both already take prenatal supplements and eat healthily, exercise regularly, but wondered if there was anything specific you would recommend we do?

Also, do you have any advice for staying healthy during pregnancy for a celiac vegan as I’m quite worried about it?

Thanks very much!

@PinkAndPearls2013:  I love myfitnesspal for counting calories, the real problem I have though is it’s hard to guess how many calories you lose lifting weights. So then it looks like I’m eating over when really I just have no idea how to log my weight sessions. :/
