Can I take creatine supplement for body building? Is it good or bad? Recommend usage?

Can I take creatine supplement for body building?
Is it good or bad?
Recommend usage?
Hye. Usually you would decide to take creatine supplementation to improve workout. Now, it all depends on YOUR definition of "workout" Just because you join the gym and pick a few weights or you want to grow muscles or gain weight does not justify taking creatine supplementation. Our body naturally creates creatine phosphate, and uses it as our "immediate energy system" This energy system is used during high-intensity, short duration bouts of exercises, such as: 40-100 meter sprint, first few reps of a power/heavy lift. In this case, taking a creatine supplement can benefit your intense training bouts, and help recovery in between sets. Creatine would help you with your cardio if and only if you were performing HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), as this type of cardio requires high amounts of effort/energy, and utilizes glycolysis as well as your immediate (creatine phosphate) energy system. Creatine is designed to deliver more "pump" to the muscle thereby increasing muscular endurance. But mind you, just taking it to gain weight or taking it without the right type of "Workout" can lead to side effects. Creatine cannot be taken in isolation. The dosage and combinations depend on weight training and cardio workout intensity, basic intake, medical history and lifestyle.

Is drinking milk injurious to bone health. And.what's your opinion on drinking milk. And what do you suggest about this.

Is drinking milk injurious to bone health. And.what's your opinion on drinking milk. And what do you suggest about this.
Dear Lybrateuser, - Drinking milk is beneficial for the body as it has proteins, sugars (carbs), calcium which are essential for the body & healthy bone growth - preferably one should have low fat milk which contains 1-2% fat compared to full fat milk (4-6%), higher saturated fat is harmful for the body as it increases the bad cholesterol (LDL) level in the blood which can contribute to fat deposition in the blood vessels, also it can lead to increase in body weight.

Day today I have feeling weakness what is the reason. And how gain my energy and weight.

Day today I have feeling weakness what is the reason. And how gain my energy and weight.
Hi ashok 1. Eating 5 to 6 meals a day in order to gain weight, start eating 5-6 meals a day by breaking them into parts. Eating a lot at once may cause indigestion if the body fails to absorb all nutrients. Eat in small amounts, even if you are not hungry and there will be an increase in appetite from day to day. The aim should be to have a generously portioned breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as two to three snacks in between. 2. Start weight training if you build your muscles through weight training, it will convert the extra weight into lean body mass and also stimulate your appetite. The extra muscle increases the rate of metabolism. When you start exercising you will often experience extreme muscle soreness but it goes away in 3-5 days. 3. Load up on protein besides weight training, a protein-rich diet can help you gain mass. Eating a meal heavy in protein shortly after finishing exercise can be highly effective in adding extra pounds to your body. However, a diet focused only on lean protein is not helpful. It is important to make sure that your diet has plenty of fat in it. Eat foods rich in protein like cheese, meat, eggs, etc to gain weight in a healthy manner. 4. Workout your entire body a lot of people focus only on training the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Firstly, it will give you a disproportionate body; and it will make you prone to injuries. Therefore, it's important to work out the entire body for a complete and balanced look. 5. Drink your calories to reach the calorie requirement only by eating may be tough. Drinking milk, milkshakes or protein shakes with little or no sugar can be an effective way to load up on the calorie requirements. 6. Be patient and believe in yourself gaining weight quickly in a healthy manner is unrealistic. Every body type is different and it takes months to gain weight. Living healthy by eating the right diet will increase your strength. It is also important to keep following the routine even if you don't see any gains. Caution: junk food and fried foods must be avoided; although have a tendency to add more fat to your body but are very low in vitamins and minerals which are essentially required to keep you really fit. Related tip: the most powerful way to put on weight - snacking right.

Slip disc is one of the causes of pain in spine. Stiffness & pain in back & other joints is quite a common condition. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

According to your height your ideal body weight should be 70 kg. With proper diet you can easily increase your weight. To gain weight it is not about eating too much, but eat high energy and protein dense food frequently in small portions. 1 start eating high energy high protein food. Like almond, ground nut, dry coconut, cashew nut, milk and milk products etc 2 do not take stress, if you are suffering from any kind of stress do yoga and meditation 3 quite smoking or any kind of tobacco. 4 eat food which is less in fiber so it can be digested easily and make you hungry again. 5 instead of eating large quantities of food in single meal take small portions of food frequently above are some common instruction. You need proper guidance of an expert for definite results. For more information consult me privately.

How to fit my body and how to increase my mind power and ability and how to increase my body power.

MSc
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Chandigarh
Hi lybrate-user Try Naturopathy and never use other medicines or supplements, read the below tips to gain maximum health benefits: 1. Make sure you have your head in the south or east direction while sleeping. In this position your body is taking force of attraction. Sleeping in north is very unhealthy and will make you tired and lethargic because your body is taking force of repulsion. Attraction bring elasticity, ease, good blood pressure, sound sleep, relaxation, increase in height while North brings high BP, quick heart beats, muscle and internal body part contraction, your breathing will affect. In Indian culture head of the Dead body during Antim sanskar is kept in North direction. In west direction researches are going on, so don’t sleep till researches come. 2. It is advisable that you consume" cow ghee" take 1 spoon of cow ghee and warm it, With the help of a dropper, Pour one drop of cow ghee in each of your nostril. It may sound weird or a hectic job at first but trust me it is the most effective remedy for any kind of problem related to health. It Makes your head nerves lighter and healthier that too without any side effects. Cow ghee reaches those areas in your head where allopathic and homeopathic medicines fails to reach. 3. In the morning start consuming lukewarm water right after you wake up & sitting in sukhasaan (chaukdi) (see image) it is advisable to even do rinsing with the lukewarm water in your mouth and gulp it after that. Drink your water sip by sip instead of drinking it in speed, this process is done for the detoxification and cleaning of your stomach/intestines that has everything to with your health issues. After this your stomach condition will remain intact at pH7 condition (which is not alkaline or acidic in nature but neutral). The alkaline or saliva (laar) of your mouth should mix with the acid of your stomach to make stomach in neutral. This is only possible if you are drinking water sip by sip, slowly each time you consume water. This will not just help you in attaining a proper health but will keep you away from other health and weakness problems, which comes from the acids produced in stomach. In Ayurveda it is said to through this formula you can live for 100 years without disease or stress. You should also eat your all meals sitting in sukhasana (check image) 4. Other advice is that don’t drink water after your meals (lunch, dinner, breakfast, or any mini meal). Drink water after 90 minutes of meals. Drinking water after your meals reduces your digestion, and as you know if food is not digested it will produce acid, which in turn will increase your weight. Scientifically it is proved that food takes at least 90 minutes to digest, drinking water during that 90 minutes will bring almost 68 types of diseases of stomach. 5. Make sure you are walking at least 5000 to 12, 000 steps every day. It is strongly recommended that you start with a jogging regime also if possible. I suggest you to buy a Pedometer which will calculate your daily steps, Pedometer will cost you just Rs 300 from market but will help you a lot. 6. Start doing surya namaskar, its more than a weight loss exercise. From improving your posture, strengthening muscles to whittling extra inches around the waist, the benefits of Suryanamaskar are many, provided you adapt it the right way. A set of 12 fixed, cyclic postures define Suryanamaskar which when performed repeatedly at an easy pace can bring a sense of well being, almost immediately. However, those with a heart condition, arthritis or slip-disk, need their doctor's consent before starting the routine. 7. You should avoid late night dinners at any cost and make sure you are following a routine while having 3 main course meals of the day. Try having your dinner before sunset and not eat anything heavy after sunset this will surely help you with a better health. Try to sleep before 11: 00 P. M. And sleep for minimum 6 to 8 hours. Lack of sleep is also a leading factor of bad health. 8. Avoid processed food, sugar and its products as well as refined oil/double refined oil. Use pure oil of mustard (sarso), peanut, coconut, cow ghee, sesame. When you put 10 to 12 chemicals in these oils then they become refined oil and bring almost 68 diseases along with weight gain and bad health. Don’t follow what this television advertisement says about refined oil. It is all marketing. EAT PURE OILS. 9. Listen the music you love when you feel tired, music has a therapeutic energy and reduces stress and makes you energetic. 10. Bhramari pranayama is very effective in instantly calming your mind down. It is one of the best breathing exercises to release the mind of agitation, frustration or anxiety and get rid of anger. A simple-to-do technique, can be practiced anywhere at work or home, and an instant option available to de-stress yourself. 11. This breathing technique derives its name from the black Indian bee called Bhramari. (Bhramari = type of Indian bee; pranayama = breathing technique). The exhalation in this pranayama resembles the typical humming sound of a bee, which explains why it is named so. Thanks.

I'm so thin. I need to gain weight in 6 months upto 10-15kgs. I can do anything Just give me a reply.
Hye, Thanks for the query. If you want to gain some weight, you need to eat more calories than you burn. 1.  Eat 5 to 6 meals a day In order to gain weight, you need to start eating 5-6 meals a day. However, it is important that you break these meals into parts, as eating a lot at once may result in indigestion. Also, be sure to include healthy foods in your diet for a healthy weight gain. 2.  Weight train at least 3 times a week When you train with weights, your muscles grow. 3.  Consume more calories than you burn. Eating calories more than your normal intake may not be easy, but you must do it if you want to stop being skinny. Make sure you don’t do it just by overeating at once, but instead do it gradually over the whole day.  4.  Work out your entire body A lot of gym goers usually train only the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Make sure you workout your entire body for a wholesome weight gain. 5.  Load up on protein As informed earlier, you have to consume more calories than your normal intake every day. You can do this by eating foods rich in protein like dairy, meat, eggs, nuts, dry fruits, pulses, sprouts, smoothies, milk shakes etc.  6.  Drink your calories It may be tough to meet your calorie requirements by just eating. Drinking milk, lassi, milkshakes or fruit smoothies with little or no sugar can be a great way to load up on the required calories. 7.  Try and eat fast (but don’t choke on it) Your body takes some time to give signals of satiety which is why eating fast can help you eat more. 8.  Focus on recovery after each workout Stretching exercises, foods rich in carbohydrates can help recover your body significantly. Also, you should aim for 8 hours of sleep as inadequate sleep can cause several problems. 9.  Be patient with yourself Hoping to gain weight quickly in a healthy manner is unrealistic. Even if you follow all the advice that is there, you may end up gaining just 1-2 kilos in a month. Every body is different, and just because you are not seeing results in terms of weight gain, you shouldn’t feel discouraged. Living healthy by eating the right diet will make you feel better and more positive about life and increase your strength. 10.  Believe in yourself.

Fight Osteoporosis with these 15 foods

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Agra
Fight Osteoporosis with these 15 foods
Fight Osteoporosis with these 15 foods

Osteoporosis is a disease wherein the bones become very weak and fragile. People with osteoporosis have an increased risk for fractured bones, even from minor falls or accidents.

It is always considered that elderly women are prone to osteoporosis, but this is not true. Damage to the bone starts at an early age. In order to maintain strong and healthy bones and prevent osteoporosis, you need to take certain precautions from an early age. Follow these 15 tips to improve your bone status and avert osteoporosis.

1. Milk and milk products
Include a healthy proportion of low fat milk and milk products (cheese, yogurt, paneer, skimmed milk powder) in your meals. The calcium and proteins in the milk makes the bones strong and healthy.

2. Nuts
Having a fistful of nuts daily provides one's body with the required minerals like calcium, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus. Almonds and pistachios in particular are good sources of calcium.

3. Vegetables
Include brocolli, chinese cabbage, cauliflower, beetroot and okra in your daily diet to strengthen your bones.

4. Ragi
Ragi has around 330 mg to 350 mg of calcium per 100gms of dry weight which makes it one of the most sought after cereal for improving the bone status.

5. Dates
Dates are particularly good sources of calcium with manganese. Copper and magnesium helps in improving the bone mineral density.

6. Sunlight
Some amount of sun exposure is required to produce vitamin d beneath our skin. Vitamin d along with calcium helps in strengthening the bone health of individuals

7. Fruits
Include fruits like like oranges, guava, strawberries, and pineapples etc, these fruits will provide vitamin c to the body which in turn will strengthen our bones. Also include banana and apple.

8. Dark green leafy vegetables
Though dark green leafy vegetables are touted as one of the major means for improving one's calcium status.

This one could be tricky because spinach has good amount of calcium but the presence of oxalate prevents the absorption of calcium.

Instead opt for collard greens, mustard greens, methi, amaranth, mustard green and turnip greens for getting enough calcium in the diet.

9. Pulses
100gms of black gram dal (urad dal) has around 200mg of calcium. Also soyabean, horsegram, lima beans and lentils can be included in one's daily diet to get the required quota of calcium.

10. Egg
Eggs are a good source of many minerals. Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin d.

11. Physical activity
20-30 mins walking daily helps stop further weakening of bones. Weight bearing exercises such as low impact aerobics, stair climbing, running, skipping helps to strengthen our bones.

12. Calcium fortified foods
One can rely on calcium fortified foods (orange juice, soy beverages, tofu products, rice milk, etc) these days to ensure that they are getting enough calcium to support a healthy structure.

13. Omega 3 fatty acids
These can have a positive impact or even prevent serious degenerative illnesses rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.

One can get omega 3 fatty acids from various seeds like pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds or fish oils.

14. Calcium supplementation
Opt for calcium asparginate or calcium citrate tablets to improve your bone structure.

15. Fish
Deep water fishes like sardines, salmon, tuna and mackerel have good amounts of calcium and other minerals. These fishes when consumed with their bones increase the calcium three folds.

Also a word of precaution - cut back on cigarette smoking and excessive alcohol intake as it depletes the calcium levels in the body. Also cut back on your salt consumption and avoid salty foods as it leaches the calcium out of the bones.
