I want to build my body. I want a proper diet to increase my weight as my body is hot body.
Weight Gain Diet It is not a good idea of Increasing intake of junk foods and fatty foods to gain weight. You should be eating calorie dense yet nutritious food. Your calorie intake should come from foods that are healthy for you. The weight gaining diet should include high protein foods, high carbohydrate foods and healthy fats. Include these in your diet. Breakfast: Banana and milk or banana shake or smoothie, whole-grain toast, fruits, nuts. Eat more fruit and drink less juice. Do not take milk mixed with ghee . It is not healthy. Lunch: Roti or chapatti or wholegrain bread, rice, green vegetables, paneer, dal, chole recipe, black-eyed beans (lobia), rajma, whole wheat pudding (dalia), etc Dinner: Similar to lunch In-between meals:: fruit, sandwich, yogurt (curd), milk, cheese, salad Avoid deep fried snacks like samosa (samosa recipe), pakodas, bhujia etc. Avoid fast foods including donut. Following is a list of weight gain foods. 1. Protein is the key for the muscle building. Without adequate protein, muscle gain and growth is not possible because weight training demands for amino acids (which comes from protein). You should daily eat about 2.2g of protein per kilogram of your weight. For example, if you are 50kg , then you should eat 50x2.2=111g of protein spread over 5-6 meals in the day. Include high protein foods in your diet. Your protein intake should be from foods rather than from supplements. Good protein foods: beans,soybeans, whey, fish, dairy products (low fat variety), meats, nuts and seeds (almonds, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds), peanut butter. Many of these are easy digestible foods. Milk is one of the best muscle foods. The milk contains two high quality proteins, about 80 percent whey and 20 percent casein. Whey is quickly broken down into amino acids and absorbed into the bloodstream. Whey is very good to consume after workout. Casein is digested more slowly and provides the body with a steady supply of protein for a longer period of time. Cheese is concentrated milk, so it is high in protein and calcium, fat and cholesterol. Include healthy skim yogurt in your diet, which can give you as much as 120 calories. 2. Eat custard apple (Saripa, Sitaphal) to put on some weight. This fruit is high in calorie. 3. Healthy fats: Avoid fatty foods. Most mothers, especially in India give too much ghee or butter to their children, thinking they will put flesh fast. But ghee is mostly saturated fat which is not a healthy fat for any body. Healthy fats are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids. Good fats: cold pressed oils (olive, sunflower, linseed, canola ). 4. Drink pure fruit juice. It is full of sugar and added nutrients so it is a healthy and nutritious way to gain some pounds. 5. Complex carbohydrates are also needed for gaining weight.. Corn bread is also full of carbohydrates, one piece gives approximately 328 calories. Potatoes are rich sources of carbohydrates and complex sugars, eat baked or as grilled potatoes. Pasta is a calorie rich cereal carbohydrates. 6. Eat bananas. These are rich in carbs and nutritious, one banana contains approximately 100 calories. 7. Some people think that drinking beer helps, but it is not true, it accumulates in your abdomen, making it fatty. 8. Don't take protein supplements for gaining muscles. Consult your doctor for protein supplements. 9. Non Vegetarian Foods Some of the non-vegetarian foods that help increase weight are given below: 1. Red Meat lean ground beef, lean steaks. 2. Pork, ham, lamb 3. Fish: Eat two portions of salmon, cod, or tuna every day. 4. Shrimps: The nutrients and necessary acid content present in shrimps gives healthy calories. 5. Turkey 6. Chicken breast Chicken breast, is supposed to be the healthiest and non-fat part which has approximately 78 calories for each serving. 7. Whole eggs: Eggs are loaded with protein, vitamins A,D and E.

Eat 1 to 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin coconut oil daily. You can add it to your smoothies. Apple cider vinegar is another good remedy to beat exhaustion. It helps alkalize the body to help you remain energetic. In addition, this health tonic is full of electrolytes, thus giving a boost to your stamina. Mix 1 tablespoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar and a little honey in a glass of water. Drink it twice daily. This bright yellow spice contains a compound called curcumin, which features many health benefits. Its powerful anti-inflammatory property helps diminish physical exhaustion to restore your energy level.

Ultrasound - Why It is Important?

Ultrasound - Why It is Important?

We are mortals and changes are bound to happen in the functioning of our body and the organ's of the body with every passing day. How the body reacts to the external environment needs to be constantly studied. Therefore, It is important to keep a check of what's happening within your body and live a healthy life.

The check could be need based as suggested by doctor to diagnose a disease or for a general health! Ultrasound scan is an important diagnostic measure to check the state of the organs inside our body via sound waves. It's is also known as sonogram, diagnostic sonography and ultrasonography. 

Types of Ultrasound
Although all types of ultrasound basically work the same, but there are a few differences in the below listed types of ultrasound. Doctor's conduct the test basis the need.

  1. Doppler Ultrasound 
  2. Obstetric Ultrasound 
  3. 3D and 4D Ultrasound
  4. Echocardiograms Carotid Ultrasound

How does it work and why it is done?
It uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of some part of the inside of the body, such as heart and blood vessels, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, bladder, uterus, ovaries, eyes, thyroid, and testicles.

  1. View the uterus and ovaries of a pregnant woman and assess her foetus
  2. Diagnose gallbladder disease
  3. Evaluate flow in blood vessels
  4. Assess abdominal pain or other concerns
  5. Guides a surgeon on a needle biopsy and treatment of a tumor
  6. Kidney Stones
  7. Pelvic ultrasound for ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, uterine growth and endometriosis
  8. The thyroid gland can be imaged using ultrasound looking for nodules, growths, or tumors
  9. Detect bulging of fluid from a swollen knee joint
  10. Veins evaluation to assess whether swelling in a leg is due to a blood clot, deep vein thrombosis or another cause

Why Ultrasound is preferred over other methods 

  1. Generally painless and does not require needles, injections or incisions.
  2. Patients aren't exposed to ionizing radiation, making the procedure safer than diagnostic techniques, such as X-rays and CT scans. In fact, there are no known harmful effects when used as directed by your healthcare provider.
  3. Ultrasound captures images of soft tissues that don't show up well on X-rays.
  4. Ultrasound is widely accessible and less expensive than other methods.

It has some limitations, such as the sound waves do not transmit well through dense bones or parts of the body that may hold air or gas, such as the bowel and thus has a diagnostic limitation.

Taking Soya is ok for males too, although it carries weak estrogen ( female hormone ) like compound. That can give some unwanted results, like- enlarged breast, less hair in beard / hands . But, you can safely have 1 cup (120 ml) / day. Better to take unflavoured and lukewarm.

Yes, you can withdraw but in tappering manner like first start taking it alternate day then 2 days gap then 3 days gap. Likewise. Because body cannot accept sudden stopping of this medicine. Usko 7 years se aadat jo lagi hai. Ese hi jaldi nahi chutegi. So do it in tappering manner. Take care.

In a day how much amount of proteins, minerals etc body need in a day.Please tell.
Protein requirement of an individual is as per ideal body weight. In your case it is 59 g/ day . You may consume plenty of colored whole fruits & vegetables/ leafy veggies (2-3 servings each) daily to meet the vitamin requirement. You can meet all the macro & micronutrient requirements on a daily basis by having a well balanced diet containing all 5 food groups- cereals, vegetables, fruits, pulse/meat & dairy products.

Dear lybrate user. Many of the trading high protien powders in the market are having steroids mixed with them which predisposes a person for depression. As you already had an episode of depression in the past, you be cautious of what that powder contains as ingrediants. Spirulina in pure form has no such interactions.

Hello, I'd you are working out in the gym or any intense workout it is body ache can be quite normal in the initial period. The tiredness could only be possible if you are into crash dieting or taking insufficient food. Please Reevaluate your food and do not starve,also do not get over bored with the exercise. Build your stamina and capacity first.

For all those who want to put on weight are suggested to keep distance from junk foods which are not healthy for the body, since they are surely going add weight to the body but at the same time they also are said to add bad fat to the body. Go only with the foods which are said to increase nutrient intake for the body and provide with sufficient energy, some of these foods have been listed below for simplicity: salmon tuna paneer soya beans soya paneer-tofu eggs shrimps granola bars cheese paneer yoghurt walnuts dates apricots anjeer raisins nuts and oil seeds peanut butter chicken breast gaining weight is not an excuse to get fat and schedule daily visits to all-you-can buffets. I suggest you begin implementing one principle each week and watch your body stack on more muscle to your frame each week.

Being a dietitian my views: there is no single diet chart for everyone. To plan a specific diet we do collect lot of information like height, weight, food frequency, digestive history, medical history, likes, dislike, lifestyle, eating habits. Remember one thing to follow a diet it should be personalized according to person's body type and not generalized. Starting with there is no pills or powder or shake which can help you to lose weight in a healthy way. To lose weight eat an hour within walking up and dinner at least 2 hours before you sleep. Avoiding eating anything after dinner. Breakfast should be your king size have good complex carbohydrates and protein rich. Eat every 2 hours small frequent meal do help in weight loss. And do not overeat. One can come to ideal body weight with few lifestyle modification. Have green tea only 2 cups a day. For exercise I would say diet plays 80 % role and exercise plays 20 % role in losing weight. Personal advise on gym. You should not make your body habituated with machines rather do simple walk or surya namaskar or planks. So only with healthy eating one can lose weight.
