Hello, i'm 27 years old. I'm married. Before marriage my weight was 55-60 around. After marriage I lost my weight too much. From last four years I lost 20 kg, now i' m 37 kg.

Sunbathing is something we associate with expats from western countries but we should be doing it too or take vitamin D supplements especially around 50 years of age. This is vital for bones. An increased intake of salmon sardines egg yolks and milk may help too but may not be sufficient so supplements come in.
Accordingly people between 19 to 70 years of age need a dosage of 600iu (international unit) a day and above 70 years of age the dosage is 800 iu a day. And upper limit is 4000 iu. Hence go on and get some sunshine and avoid the pills.

Women's day special on understanding women
As the world celebrates international women's day on every month march 8th, should rightly begin with every household where men is not possible without the divine creature of extraordinary species called women in which she takes various avatars in her lifetime like daughter wife mother grandmother as such. As she has all equal contribution in the society as well in the development of the nation and globe. Like men, women require a lot of attention, love, care and support. It is only natural that at times they seek a little more in return from a relationship. Few basic ethiquette are:
Love : of course one doesn't need to be a women to look for love however women just love to feel loved. It is not that a woman doesn't know that her man loves her, it is nice to remind her how much frequently.
Respect and space : many women have to demand for respect and space as they don't get enough of them from their elders and loved ones. When it comes to career women need more support than men.
Listening and understanding : it is important for women to have a man who understands them. It is also important for women to help the man in their life understand how to listen. And this requires good communication with mutual solution together.
Appreciation : sometimes in a relationship men take their partners for granted. A man must keep reminding his women that whatever she has done for him and does for him in the future and he is grateful and will continue to be. A man must appreciate even the minutest of his partner's efforts. As women want to feel valued. Which gives them sense of satisfaction that she is special for him.
Security and commitment : this may sound intense, but this is the basic requirement of any human being who has emotions. Women just want assurance that their sheer investment of time soul and a whole lot of emotions into a relationship is not going to wasted just like that.
And finally women expects men to be good in communicating, a man who is honest, a man who is emotionally stable, and a man who will compromise like someone who can compromise and say I was wrong'when the time is right.

What can I do to ease my digestive issues during pregnancy?
What happens when you carry a baby in your womb that weighs a couple of kilos? well, it presses upon your digestive tract and makes digestion an issue for you. However, the baby’s weight is not the only factor that matters here. The massive amount of hormonal changes that your body undergoes also adds greatly to the issue.
Digestive problems are not grave during pregnancy. Instead, they are fairly common everywhere. There are many simple steps that can aid you in easing your digestive process when you are pregnant.
1. Sit up straight:
Since the bulging baby is putting on immense weight on your stomach, you need to sit up straight when eating in order to ease the pressure. Moreover, avoid lying down for at least an hour after having your meal.
2. Wind up the meal size:
Along with winding up the meal size, make sure that you increase its frequency, or else your baby will have to starve.
Instead of having three large meals in a day, try dividing them down to five small meals in 24 hours. Small and frequent meals will keep you from bloating and prevent indigestion issues.
Although pregnancy calls for no vigorous activity, it also does not require becoming stationary all at once. When pregnant, you need to carry out 30 minutes of light workout daily, such as walking or riding a stationary cycle. Exercise stimulates adrenaline that in turn promotes bowel movements for a better digestion.
4. Limit caffeine intake:
Caffeine is not going to help with your digestive issues, especially if you are carrying a life in your womb. Hence, try to avoid it, particularly during the night hours.
Ask your doctor to prescribe you some antacids that you can consume on a daily basis. Antacids help a lot with indigestion issues.
6. Don’t bend over your waist:
When pregnant, your waist is the part of your body that is suffering the most pressure. Hence, you would want to bother that part of your body at the least. Avoid bending over your waist. If required, do it at your knees.
7. Eat healthy:
Stuffing your stomach with unnecessary carbohydrates will only make it worse for you. Hence, for a healthy baby as well as a healthy digestive system, resort more to healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables. Fibre in your diet will help you mobilize your gut for an easy digestion.
