Does protein powder cause weight loss?

no protein powder does not make you lose weight it actually has 20 % of fat but there are pills that make you lose weight salads with no dressing and 100 % fruit juice also makes you lose weight (Previous Answer)


When you exercise (vigorously) you damage your muscles (In a good way), when the muscles repair they use a variety of essential acids and proteins that are extracted from your food. Taking protein as a dietary supplement aids in this muscle recovery, so you build muscle (and hopefully) increase your overall fitness faster than you would otherwise.

So in answer to your question, NO, Protein, on it's own, will not instantly rid you of unwanted fat, in fact, if protein is left to sit in your gut for more than a few hours (If you dont exercise after taking it), your body begins to rapidly break it down into fat.

If you really want to lose wait, remember! 70% of Weight loss is Diet & 30% exercise. So eat healthy, exercise at least 3-4 times a week for a minimum of 45 mins (heart rate 135+) and you WILL lose weight. XD

MRI Full Form Name

Full Form of MRI :

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

MRI Full Form is Magnetic Resonance Imaging. MRI is an imaging technique used by physicians in order to diagnose the internal organs to treat them. MRI makes use of radio frequency pulses and a strong magnetic field to give detailed pictures of the targeted organs on a computer screen. It can also take pictures of tissues, bones, and almost any internal structure of the body. MRI is different from x-ray as ionizing radiation is not used.

A detailed MRI picture or image can help doctors to analyze parts of the body in order to identify the diseases present based on the symptoms. These images can be printed out to maintain hard copies of reports. It is absolutely painless and very safe for all ages. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (NMRI) and Magnetic Resonance Tomography (MRT) are the other terms used to refer MRI technique in the medical field.

Why is fasting before a cat scan necessary?

Its not safe because something might go wrong in the scan and the antibiotic/sleeping injection might react with food and it won't show a clear and good picture of your cat's insides. -------------------------------------------------Improvement By the wording of the question, 'cat' scan may actually refer to CT scan or Computed (Axial) Tomography scan. Fasting before the scan for 4 to 6 hours or more may be required for certain scans requiring contrast media (iodine-based dyes to visualize certain organs better) or scans of the abdomen to avoid compounding results since certain food items may mimic human tissue in its response to X rays or reduce the effectiveness of contrast provided by contrast media.

Can a Cat Scan hurting a pregnant woman?

It won't harm the pregnant woman. It WILL, however, hurt your unborn fetus. Depending how far along you are in your pregnancy and which body part is imaged will determine how much it will possibly interfere with your fetus' development.

For example, if you were to get a CT scan of your brain, then your abdomen area would be shielded and your baby would be pretty well protected from any errant radiation as it is not in the primary radiation beam.

If you were to get a CT scan of your abdomen, however, this would more than likely only happen in an extreme emergency situation as the dose to your unborn fetus would be great and it would surely disrupt his development. To what degree, no one really knows. It would also depend on how many weeks pregnant you are. The farther along that you are, the better the outcome in lessening your chance of significant damage to your unborn child. Radiation DOES kill cells. While we can regrow cells, sometimes (in development) those cells cannot be replaced if they were being formed at a critical time in the babies development.

Any radiation study being requested on a pregnant female should always be questioned as to the importance of the study and can any other test be done first. You and your doctor must outweigh the risks and benefits before undergoing a radiation test while pregnant.

What does CAT stand for in CAT scan?

The CAT scan is computerized axial tomography. The words "axialized" and "tomographic" might be substituted in. A link can be found below. Oh, and we're moving away from that term now. It's just called a CT scan by many currently, and that's short for computerized tomography, as you probably guessed. A "Computerized Axial Tomographic" scan is a type of X-ray scan that is utilised for diagnostic purposes in a variety of health issues.
