Fast Food - Know Damaging Effect Of It!

Fast Food - Know Damaging Effect Of It!

The name 'fast food' comes from the fact that it can be prepared and served in a jiffy and not to mention, tastes delicious. Don't be fooled by the smell and the taste, they have such little to no nutritional value that they can hardly be called food. They are rich in calories, fat and sugar that lead to various kinds of health conditions.

Popular junk foods include burger, pizza, carbonated drinks, ready to eat & instant cooked foods, fried foods, etc. You probably love them now but after knowing their effects on your health you might want to eliminate them from your diet.

Here are some of the conditions which can be caused by the consumption of excessive fast food:

1. Heart diseases: Fast food contains high amounts of trans or saturated fats that can clog your arteries and lead to high level of cholesterol later in life. People who have junk food more than four times a week increase their risk of dying by 80%.

2. Obesity: Adolescents who have poor eating habits are at high risk of being obese. Gaining a lot of weight beyond a recommended proportion can cause many health problems. Junk foods have sugar and calories that lead to weight gain. It has also been noticed that people who are prone to eating more fast foods are less likely to consume fruits and vegetables and this further weakens their immune system.

3. Peptic Ulcer: Peptic ulcer is a disease that occurs in the gastrointestinal tract; it is acidic in nature and causes extreme stomach ache. Spicy oily and salted food combined with stress and alcohol can lead to this condition. 

4. Diabetes: Busy work schedule prevents many people from cooking at home and they take resort in fast food but it is advisable not to let work get in the way of your health. Consuming regular fast food coupled with poor lifestyle and lack of exercise leads to obesity which in turn causes type 2 diabetes.  

Cut down on junk foods and incorporate fruits and vegetables and also make time to include a daily exercise routine to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

My bmi is 15. How can I gain weight in healthy way sir/mam. Can I take protein powders like proteins.
To gain weight in a healthy way is very essential. For this you have not only focus on protein intake but the total calories intake of the day. It should be high calorie, high carbs, moderate & that too healthy fat diet. To be specific you should make your meals calorie dense. Try to include milk & it's products, nuts like peanuts, walnuts, almonds, pista, cashew & also dates & anjeer. Chicken, fish & eggs if non-vegetarian. Make sure to have a balanced meal. Make sure you r not constipated. Make a personalized diet plan from a qualified dietitian & stict to it religiously. Need to have paitence.

As it is summer's now. I would suggest you to go for a olive oil. But still if u want to choose from ghee & mustard oil , then I would say ghee will be better option. As mustard oil will be too hot for soft baby skin during summer's. But my preference will be olive oil as it has many benefits.

Ketogenic Diet - All You Should Know About It!

P.G.Dietetics

Ketogenic Diet - All You Should Know About It!

If you are on a mission to lose weight, the ketogenic diet or the keto diet is what most nutritionist will recommend. It is a diet that is low in carbohydrates. The idea behind this diet is to deprive the body of carbohydrates so that it produces ketones. The body enters a metabolic pathway, whereby fats stored in the liver are broken down to produce ketone bodies. This process of ketone synthesis is known as Ketogenesis. Thus, in the absence of carbohydrates, the body's energy requirements are met using the ketone bodies, a state referred to as Ketosis.

A person on a ketogenic diet should consume more of;

  • Vegetables: Spinachbroccoli, kale, cauliflowercabbage, Brussel sproutslettuce. Include green leafy and above the ground vegetables as they are low in carbohydrates.
  • Fruits and berries: Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, kiwi, avocados. Consume raspberries and blackberries in limited quantity.
  • Walnutssunflower seeds, macadamia.
  • Coconut oilolive oilavocado oil, macadamia oil.
  • Fatty fish, coconut butter, cocoa butter, egg yolk, hard cheese (Cheddar, Feta, Parmesan), soft cheese (Mozzarella, Colby, Monterey Jack).
  • Vegetable oil, if used, should be cold compressed.
  • Include more of saturated and monounsaturated fats into the diet. 

On a ketogenic diet, one should avoid;

  • Fruits: Apples, oranges, bananas, mangoes.
  • Vegetables: Potatoes, tomato, eggplants, mushrooms, yams.
  • Blueberries.
  • Honey, maple syrup.
  • Cereals, wheatcornrice.
  • Avoid processed polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and trans fats.

One needs to drink water at regular intervals of time. Physical activities like exercise, jogging, morning walks are a must.

The ketogenic diet should be low in carbohydrates, moderate in proteins and contain high amounts of fats.

Benefits of a Ketogenic diet:

Low in carbohydrates, the ketogenic diet takes care of many ailments and medical conditions.

Weight management: The diet is a blessing for those who are struggling to get rid of the stubborn fats. Deprived of carbohydrates, particularly blood glucose, the fats (in the liver), are broken down to provide the body with ketones (an alternate source of fuel) so that the body can function normally. In doing so, it helps the body get rid of the unwanted fats.

  1. The diet helps to maintain the insulin level.
  2. A diet low in carbohydrates plays a pivotal role in controlling the blood sugar level.
  3. The high-fat ketogenic diet helps to minimize the hunger pangs and food cravings, without compromising on the energy quotient.
  4. A ketogenic diet goes a long way to treat epilepsy successfully.
  5. In addition to being a fat burning fuel, ketones are also brain fuels. Thus, the diet helps to improve concentration and mental focus.
  6. Carbohydrates can spell doom for your skin. A high-fat (ketone) diet reverses the damage, reducing the instances of acne, skin rashes, lesions and other skin problems drastically.
  7. A keto diet brings about a significant increase in the Good Cholesterol or HDL level while lowering the concentration of LDL in the body.

Most importantly, Ketogenic diet is for epilepsy. If you want to follow this diet for weight loss, you should always be doing it under a qualified Dietitian or Nutritionist who will modify this plan accordingly & would guide you to come back to a normal Indian diet plan without regaining lost weight.

6 Reasons Unpeeled Apples Are Really Good For You!

P.G.Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bhopal
6 Reasons Unpeeled Apples Are Really Good For You!

The famous adage “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” has given the apple a lot of popularity. If you are visiting someone who is ill, the safest fruit to take would be apples. It is also one of the first foods to be given to an infant. It is also known for its soothing effect on the stomach. Be it weight watchers or recovering patients, apple is what everybody reaches out to.

People, however, have developed a misconception that the peel of the apple contains chemicals and should be peeled off before consumption. Not many realize that the maximum benefits of an apple are realized only when it is eaten with the peel. Read on to know more about eating a whole apple versus a peeled one.

  1. Fiber: If fruits are known for their fiber, then peeling the apple takes away more than half the fiber content from it. An apple with the peel gives about 4 g of fiber, while without it gives about 1.5 to 2 g. That is almost 50%, which definitely is not worth throwing out.
  2. Vitamins and minerals: Apples are considered good sources of potassium and vitamins like C and A. Same as fiber, more than half the benefits are lost if the peel is removed. Since potassium goes a long way in keeping the heart healthy, wouldn't it be great to reap those benefits?
  3. Cancer-fighting agent: Apples contain triterpenoids, which are believed to either kill or control the growth of cancer cells. These again are concentrated in the peel, and peeling an apple takes away this benefit.
  4. Fat burner: The skin of the apple contains ursolic acid, which helps in fighting obesity by burning more fat, and peeling it takes away the fat-burning benefits of an apple. This also helps in improving sugar and glucose levels and also aids weight loss.
  5. Antioxidants: Apples contain a compound called quercetin which helps in controlling memory loss and dementia. This again is concentrated in the skin, which should, therefore, be retained. The bioactive substances including polyphenols and pectins are also lost when the peel is removed.
  6. Eases breathing: The same quercetin also helps in easing breathing and improves lung function. This is especially important in people who have chronic lung issues like asthma.

One point of contention here is that most people peel the apple as it is not healthy and full of wax coating which gives it a fresh look. Organic apples are therefore preferred compared to the glossy ones. Further, you can dip your fruits in drinking water for 15-20 minutes to enjoy it without worrying about superficial add-on chemicals. When nicely washed, these apples are devoid of wax and also pack in all the required nutrients.

Quick tip for festivals 

Try to have a fruit smoothie made especially from unpeeled apple with little curd water and honey. It is a perfect way to boost your energy during festivities while keeping your calories in check. 

So, go ahead and eat them to your heart’s content. Remember to keep the peel on though!

Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) - Diet You Should Follow!

Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) - Diet You Should Follow!

A rising number of teenage girls in the country are getting affected with Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease or PCOD. Though an advanced menarche has become very rampant these days, there are many young women who are suffering from a delay in menarche which in turn is leading to PCOD as opined by gynaecologists. Obesity and sedentary lifestyle among young people have caused a rapid doubling of PCOD cases in the past five to eight years.

Occurrence and Symptoms:

Gynaecologists report that they get at least 15 fresh instances of PCOD cases, and a considerable number of teenagers aged 16-17 are not getting their menarche. Such patients are recommended to take a strictly balanced diet which will help them to lose weight. Initially, their mothers think that they would experience their menarche in proper time, but some girls are diagnosed with PCOD when taken to a family gynaecologist. Even worse, they could never imagine that their obesity can pave the way for such a grave health issue. PCOD can cause numerous other problems like delayed and irregular menses, rapid weight gain and tremendous difficulty in losing weight, developing acne and blocked skin pores.

Furthermore, it leads to thinning of hair and excessive growth of hair on chest, back and face. Infertility, continual miscarriagehigh blood pressure and high blood sugar are also common with PCOD.

Help yourself with the right diet:

There is no proven evidence regarding the cause of PCOD though gynaecologists are of the opinion that some females possess a predisposition to this disease, and it may run hereditarily in the family. You can alleviate your PCOD symptoms to a considerable extent by regulating your diet properly.

Have loads of fruits and green leafy vegetables and try to abstain from dairy products as many experts believe that dairy products are a direct cause of an increase in insulin levels, which can aggravate skin troubles along with other PCOD symptoms. Avoiding red meat and eating lean meat instead will help the condition and reduce the chances of infertility. It is always recommended to avoid hydrogenated and saturated fats, which are normally found in animal and dairy-based food. Try to put a stop to cheese, cottage cheese, clarified butter, pork, lamb, beef, etc. and certain baked products like cookies, cakes and fudges as they will trigger a rise in your blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

The following dietary tips can be helpful with the condition:

  • High levels of the insulin hormone causes PCOS symptoms like high blood sugar, increased hair growth, weight gain etc. So, refined foods rich in fat and carbohydrates should be consumed in small amounts.
  • Whole foods in their natural, uncooked form should be consumed fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans etc. These are low glycemic foods that reduce the glucose circulation by insulin.
  • Intake of salt should be very limited. You should not consume more than 3 grams a day.
  • Green vegetables have antioxidants. These are good for women with PCOS because they have a high amount of oxidative stress.
  • Your daily diet should contain at least 30 grams of fiber to improve the digestion process and remove toxins.
  • It is best to consume milk and dairy products in limited quantity because milk helps to increase the level of testosterone (male hormone) in the body.
  • Soy products should also be taken in limited quantity, especially if you are trying to conceive, because they interfere with the ovulation cycle.
  • Processed fat is harmful but essential fatty acids found in avocado, fish, olive oil and nuts are important for the body.
  • High levels of male hormones also cause high cholesterol. So foods which have high saturated fats like butter, cream, coconut oil and fatty meat should not be included in the regular diet of women with PCOS.
  • Protein-rich foods like lean meat, fish, legumes, whole grains are beneficial as protein can stabilize blood sugar. These foods also keep you feeling full and prevent over-eating.

PCOD is such a condition which you can never afford to overlook. If you had been facing any of the common symptoms, then it is probably time to pay a visit to a responsive gynaecologist.

Hypothyroidism - 5 Foods To Help You Manage It!

Hypothyroidism - 5 Foods To Help You Manage It!

The thyroid is a small gland located on the neck. When the thyroid gland functions normally, it is easy to ignore it but an underactive or overactive thyroid gland can cause a number of problems. An underactive thyroid gland is known as hypothyroidism. In this case, the gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. This, in turn, lowers metabolism. Your diet plays a large role in influencing the functioning of the thyroid gland. Some of the foods you should avoid in cases of hypothyroidism are:

1. Cruciferous Vegetables
This includes vegetables such as cabbage, bok choi, kale, sprouts, and broccoli. These vegetables restrict the thyroid’s ability to absorb iodine which in turn lowers the functionality of the thyroid gland. While you do not need to completely avoid these vegetables, you should restrict their intake to less than 5 ounces each day. Cooking these vegetables can also help reduce their effect.

2. Soy
Soy products are rich in plant-based phytoestrogen. This hormone interferes with the body’s ability to use the thyroid hormone. It can worsen hypothyroidism and even increase the risk of hypothyroidism. However, this has not been scientifically proven and hence there are no specific dietary guidelines on how much should be eaten. To be on the safe side, consume soy products in moderation and avoid them whenever possible.

3. Fatty Foods
Hypothyroidism is yet another reason to avoid fatty foods. Fats interfere with the body’s ability to absorb thyroid hormone as well as thyroid hormone replacement drugs. It also lowers the production of thyroid hormone and thus aggravates hypothyroidism. Ideally, you should avoid fatty foods such as red meat, fatty fish, butter, mayonnaise etc. You should also avoid foods that are deep fried. Instead, try steaming or baking your food.

4. Sugar
Many dieticians refer to sugar as empty calories. These calories do not have any nutrients but can slow down the body’s metabolism rate. It also leads to weight gain that furthers aggravates hypothyroidism as well as other lifestyle disorders such as diabetes. Limit your sugar consumption to 1-2 spoons a day or try and eliminate it completely. You could also try replacing sugar with honey to sweeten your tea.

5. Excess Fiber
An excessive amount of anything including fiber can be detrimental to the body. Too much fiber can create complications in the treatment of hypothyroidism. Thus, you should not consume more than 35 grams of fiber a day. This can take the form of whole grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, and beans.

I am very slim my weight is very less I feel weak always.
I want to be fit so any clothes I will wear it will suit me.
First try to find out if your haemoglobin levels are normal otherwise you will not feel hungry, Are your digestive system healthy i.e. U r not facing issues like constipation, acidity, gases etc. If your digestion is not good, whatever you eat will not be absorbed by the body. Thirdly make sure you r taking good amount of sleep & water daily. Which you usually tend to avoid or forget in your age due to studies. Some physical activity is must to make you hungry. As you said you look thin, so apart from gaining weight you have focus on building muscles too by weight training.
