Cashew Nut Milk for sound sleep

Cashew Nut Milk for sound sleep

Soak 4-5 cashews in a bit of milk for 4-5 hours. Then pour the milk and cashew in a mortar (bowl) and pound it with a pestle ('kootna peesna'). Top this nutty milk mixture with more milk. Add sugar to taste and saffron if you want. Drink cold or hot just before going to bed. You will never have more fun sleeping alone.

Hypertension and the Salt connection

Hypertension and the Salt connection

Have You Been Told to Reduce Your Salt Intake to Reduce Bp?
Yes, you must have been but you probably have not been told how to reduce salt intake the right way.

The fact is that when we eat too much salt (sodium), our bodies will hold on to more water. This increases the amount of blood flowing through our veins and arteries which increases blood pressure.

So How to Reduce Salt Intake Properly?
- Roughly 80% of the salt we eat is hiding in processed foods like bread, biscuits and breakfast cereals, and prepared ready meals or takeaways. Only 20% comes from the salt we add while cooking or at the table.
- Salt used in daily cooking is a must. It contains sodium which is needed to retain our body's water, enable our cell walls to draw in nutrients and most importantly control our heartbeat . Sodium is needed to maintain BP. So continue using table salt for cooking. Keep the biscuits, maggi and farsans out.
- Skip the salty snacks, baked goodies, and eat out less often.
- Choose to eat more fresh foods more often.
- Use the mineral rich 'kala namak' for one of the meals through the day. It is unprocessed and rich in iodine and also sodium, potassium, and iron.

Some Super Foods to Fight with Hypertension
-Banana alternate days
-Walnut 2 soaked with breakfast
-Spinach beetroot juice once in a day
-Poppy seed water early morning or 1 tsp. poppy seeds.
-Watermelon seeds with salad 1 tsp.
-2 garlic cloves

Will doing crunches help lose belly fat?

Will doing crunches help lose belly fat?

Will doing crunches help lose belly fat?

Even if you did 1,000 crunches every day, you'd unlikely trim the fat around your belly. That's because crunches tone the muscles that lie underneath your fat, but they do very little to help you lose weight - which is the key to shrinking your belly.

Any exercise will burn calories but no exercise will burn fat unless your diet allows it. You can burn fat in your sleep or you can run all day and never burn any fat. It all depends on your diet.

Fat loss is determined by calorie control, not by exercise. Good exercises for burning calories are walking, running, biking, swimming, and ANY other physical activity which makes you move a lot of weight for a long time. But NO exercise is good for burning fat if you eat too many calories because you can always eat more calories than you can burn.

Too many people waste energy and time because they do not understand this one simple point. The result is too often giving up in frustration, disuse of gym memberships they continue to pay for, and many other unnecessary problems not the least of which is a lack of success.

Crunches will have almost no effect on fat loss. And you cannot spot reduce.

It is not possible to lose fat only from a specific part of your body of your choosing. Where your body stores and removes fat is determined by your genetics and there is nothing you can do to change that short of radical procedures such as liposuction. And, in general, where it stores fat first is where it will lose it last and visa verse. The world of health and fitness has an unfortunate abundance of myths and spot reduction is one of them. There is no exercise, no pill, no supplements, no spa treatment, and no natural way to spot reduce. Your only choice is to create a caloric deficit with a healthy and balanced diet (nutrient rich), burn fat, and wait for it to leave the desired body parts.

Blood group diets: Fact or Fiction?

Blood group diets: Fact or Fiction?
I am hearing these a lot...AGAIN!
I can't believe how by reading few attractive words here and there having no evidence or any backing scientific studies, people just blindly start to believe in it and make a trending topic out of it.

"Arrey aapne to mera blood group poocha hi nahi! Aise kaise diet plan bana diya?"
"You provide diet plans based on blood group na?"
"Aap please mera diet plan blood group ke hisaab se banaiye, mujhe kisi ne kaha hai".

FACT or FICTION?
FICTION. (full stop)

So here's an attempt to wake you up and educate you that you shouldn't fall for the so called blood group diets!

Read full article here http://wp.me/p4DoPn-eh


Your blood type plays very little (if any) role in what type of diet you should eat and this diet was probably formulated to sell books and make money more than it was to help people make sense of nutrition.

Do yourself a big favor & steer clear of this nonsense.

The delicious and cleansing ??Green Juice?

The delicious and cleansing ??Green Juice?

This is a light, frothy green juice with a lot of flavour. I only added one cup of chopped spinach to the recipe but if you want to bulk up on minerals, feel free to add more.

High in vitamins and low in calories, spinach is one of the most nutrient-dense foods. When combined with sweet pineapple, this juice becomes the perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up or a great way to start the morning.

The Golden Milk
Popping pills before sleep can be avoided, if we use kitchen ingredients in our daily food intake.

Kitchen is a great pharmacy where spices are friends of a ‪dietitian and pride of the cooks.

Here is the ‪‎Golden Milk (Fat burner and good night sleep) recipe:

1. Add 100 ml of cow's milk to 50 ml of water.
2. Add 1/2 tsp of organic ‪‎turmeric powder (haldi), pinch of ‪cinnamon (dalchini), 1/4th tsp of ‪‎nutmug‬ powder (jaiphel) and pinch of ‪‎black pepper powder.
3. Simmer it till it boils.
4. Have this warm golden milk an hour before going to bed.

Additional Tip: Use turmeric and black pepper in daily cooking to bust physical and mental stress.

‪Caution‬: Please avoid this milk if you are a pregnant women or if you are taking blood thinners or diabetes medicines.

Hello lybrate-user, I suggest that you get your vitamin d and sodium test done. Vitamin d deficiency can cause leg pain and sodium water imbalance can cause dehydration.

Brown vs White food. Which is healthier?

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition, Post Graduate Diploma in Health and Family Welfare
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Chandigarh
Brown vs White food. Which is healthier?
Brown rice or White rice?
Brown sugar or White sugar?
Brown bread or White bread?

Everyone is health conscious today and most of us now believe that ‪#‎brown‬ is always the most healthiest option. But is that really true?

No doubt brown rice has more fiber and is commonly used by weight conscious people. That's true but white rice is also nice. Moderate intake of white rice also acts as fat burner. White rice has Inositol, which has fat burning, anti-anxiety and irritability reducing property. So enjoy a mix of both.

Brown sugar and white sugar both have almost same calorie content 17kcal. But most of us tend to think that white sugar is refined so its not good for health. Sugar is not a killer itself. The way we use sugar makes it harmful. Intake of overloaded sugar in biscuits, pastries, cakes, sweets and dairy affects our health. Using white sugar in moderate amount in home made food is acceptable.

Both brown and white bread are source of energy. Best option for us is to eat chapati or rice that is cooked at home and fresh rather than choosing breads whose shelf life is only few hours.

Dietitian Tip - Seasonal Local Mangoes or Exotic Avocados?

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition, Post Graduate Diploma in Health and Family Welfare

Dietitian Tip - Seasonal Local Mangoes or Exotic Avocados?
Seasonal local mangoes or exotic avocado?

Avocado and Mango both are rich in vitamins and minerals but which one should you choose?

Remember that the more food travels, the lesser will be nutrition. So consume seasonal & local fruits and vegetables.

Mangoes are even big yes for weight loss as it calms sugar cravings and slows down the development of fat cells.

Can I have mango if I have diabetes? Yes
Can I have mango if I have cholesterol? Yes
Can I have mango if have high bp? Yes

Remember, moderation is the key. And eat fruits on their own or first thing in the morning. Do not consume with or right after/before meals.

For all those who are concerned if mango really works for weight loss:
your mango can help you become lean and toned, but you've got to eat it at the right time. Here's how it works: a mango, eaten with a meal, alters the ph balance or acidity of the stomach and disturbs both the glycemic index and glycemic load of your meal. When a mango is eaten on its own, exactly like the way you often eat your papaya and melon, the sugars and the micro-nutrients in the fruit are much more available to the body than they would be, when it is consumed along with, or right after a meal. So eat your mango after dinner, or have it, as some of us love to do, as aamras, with hot puris, and sure, you will be expanding that ring around your waist.

Eat it first thing in the morning, or just after physical exercise, and it may just help you get that six pack.

The number 1 mantra to digest food and get rid of acidity and constipation:

Before eating - folding hands
During eating - crossing legs
After eating - folding legs (Vajrasana)

How you eat is as important as what you eat and when you eat.

Can't control when you eat your favorite dish and always end up overeating? Eat with your hands and stop spoon feeding.

It will not only help you learn portion control, but improves digestion and promotes mindful eating. Eating with the hands engages all the senses and keeps you present while eating because fingers connect to the stomach through your lips.

Don?t kids just look so happy and carefree, eating with their hands? Live a little, try something new, have some fun :)

"Lavleen I can't wake up without having a cup of tea...chai ka cup mil jaye to I feel good." Common words I hear everyday.

Tea is only a stimulant and gives that kick to keep you going. But what you are actually doing by having tea on empty stomach every time is suppressing your appetite and then because you don't feel like eating much your body gets nutrient deficient and you feel very tired by the end of the day. Not to mention the other harms it can do to your body including Acidity, Indigestion and Kidney damage.

Start your day with fruit and end with a warm cup of turmeric milk. Gradually embed green tea in your routine and replace normal tea. Walk daily. Do it for a week and feel the difference.

Popcorn is a healthy whole-grain snack that contains plenty of fiber. Just a 30gm serving - that's half a small box of popcorn in the cinema - is equivalent to one daily portion of brown rice or whole wheat pasta.

Note: It can quickly turn to junk food once it's popped in oil and slathered in butter, salt or other toppings.
