Q:

Can exercise effect breast milk?

A:

One of the myths out there is that exercise can actually impact the taste of your breast milk, as well as the amount of breast milk you produce.

No studies have actually been able to support that. If you keep yourself well hydrated and drink a lot of water during your exercise program, there is absolutely no change in the taste of your breast milk or how much you produce

Q:

What are the symptoms of lupus?

A:

Lupus symptoms can vary widely in those affected, and have a range of severity. People with lupus can get flares of symptoms, where they have more symptoms for a period and then their symptoms subside, or they can have permanent lupus symptoms. Symptoms can include fatigue, fever, rashes, and inflammation of joints or other organs. If you have any of these symptoms that are persisting, speak with your family physician.

Q:

How many calories does muscle burn?

A:

Muscle in your body burns calories at a faster rate than the other tissues in your body, like fat. One pound of muscle would burn about 50 calories a day without doing anything. Of course, if you are moving and active regularly, your muscles will burn more calories.
