The health of your guinea pigs will be very much a result of what you give them to eat. It is important that they get the correct nutrition to maintain their wellbeing. Fibre and Protein The main part of a guinea pig’s diet is of fibre and protein with fibre constituting most of their intake. Fibre is found in pellet food and is abundant in grass hay. A cavy’s diet should be higher in fibre than protein and low in sugar, carbs and rich fats. Fats Cavies can tolerate fats but should only constitute around 3-5% of their daily intake…

The Myth of Balanced Feeds Some feeds claim (or at least strongly suggest) that they will provide your horse with everything he needs in terms of nutrition, and in the optimum amounts. In fact, many people are afraid to stop feeding grain mixes because they believe the horse’s diet will then be unbalanced and/or the horse will miss out on nutrition. What you need to understand, though, is that your horse’s nutrition needs to be looked at in terms of everything he eats – both hay/pasture and what might come out of a bag. It may be true that what’s…

MariuszSzczygiel/iStock/Getty Images Carb detox diets either limit or entirely eliminate carbohydrate-containing foods such as bread, rice, pasta, fruits and vegetables, in favor of fats and protein. While low-carb diets like the Atkins plan are intended for weight loss, detox diets promise to give the body a rest from the hard work of digestion and restore equilibrium to your system. Premise Detox diet advocates believe that the body is under constant attack from environmental toxins such as preservatives, dyes, artificial sweeteners and flavorings, alcohol and sugar. Detoxes afford the body the opportunity to cleanse itself of these pollutants to restore its…

All horses need fiber in their diet and some of it must be the form of long hay. Horses challenged by metabolic syndrome should be offered hays that are low in non-structural carbohydrates or NSC. This class of carbohydrates includes starch, water-soluble sugar, and fructan. Normal horses can tolerate NSC levels of 20% or higher. It is recommended that horses with metabolic syndrome consume hay with NSC levels of around 10% to 12%. In order to know the true NSC value of your hay you will have to test it, but understanding the factors that affect NSC levels will help…

Start the Diet Now Advertisement The Hay Diet, developed by William Howard Hay in the 1920s, is a kind of lifestyle eating plan in which foods are eaten in accordance to their alkalinity, acidity or neutrality levels. Similar to other nutrition programs proposed by Edgar Cayce and D.C. Jarvis, The Hay Diet uses the notion of food-combining to achieve a balanced state of health and most notably a balanced pH level. Having too much acidity in the diet is believed to incite certain negative health conditions while having a balanced pH is needed for the body to acquire acid-alkaline homeostasis….

You may want to open your diary to get more specific advice. I think you have the problem backwards. You should be more worried about too much protein. Very Low Carb diets work best when you are eating High fat, Moderate protein, and Low carbohydrates. The reason for this has to do with the general strategy of low carb diets: keep your blood sugar low, keep your insulin response down, and your body will be more willing to burn body fat for energy sources. The problem with eating too much protein (and the exact amount is different for everyone based…

The topic of carbohydrates for horses has gotten a lot of people asking questions and has created a certain amount of confusion, particularly when comparing carbohydrates in equine diets to human dietary recommendations. Starches, carbohydrates, sugars, non-structural carbohydrates (NSC) and non-fibrous carbohydrates (NFC), among others, are terms thrown around for equine diets, and all those terms can get very intimidating, when it comes to what these nutrients mean to your horse and how much your horse needs or doesn’t need. Here is a list of each of the common terms, and what they include: Structural Carbohydrates – This category includes…
