Healthy Option in Indian Snack For Dieters

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Chandigarh

You often have to go out for a party but you are following a diet plan for weight loss. You wonder what is a healthy option in Indian snacks for dieters.

It might sound hard to make a healthy food choice between the famous Indian snacks offered in parties these days, but it’s not really that hard.

Options I had in front of me at a recent party were:

  1. Paneer Tikka
  2. Stuffed Mushroom
  3. Cheese Roll

I had similar questions and found out the answers. This article is to help you avoid eating unhealthy options which are usually available in the menu of parties. here, we provide you the nutritional summary of these famous snacks.

Paneer Tikka

Serving size: 100 g

Calories: 101
Fats: 3.65g
Carbs: 7.75g
Proteins: 9.85

Stuffed Mushrooms

Serving Size: 100g

Calories: 40
Fats: 3g
Carbs: 3g
Proteins: 2g

Cheese Roll

Serving Size: 1

Calories: 250
Fats: 10g
Carbs: 50g
Proteins: 10g

Hence the most nutritious snack amongst them all is clearly stuffed mushrooms which provide 40kcal, 3g fats, 3g carbs and 2g proteins.

So, being on diet does not mean being anti-social or being on a punishment. You can still choose what snacks are healthier amongst the ones available. Enjoy the treats but do not let your diet plan go for a toss. Stick to a regime, follow it with commitment & achieve the desired results.

Enjoy Healthy Delicacies of Lohri Festival

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Chandigarh

The festival of Lohri is around the corner after one full year…Let us share with you today the health benefits of Lohri’s special delicacies including Lohri sweets & dishes. And we at LiveLifeMore® keep trying to share the 'Wisdom of Wellness' that 'adds years to your life & adds life to your years'. 

Let us share with you today the health benefits of Lohri’s special delicacies… i.e., Moongfali, Gachak, Rewari, Popcorns etc. 

Lohri Sweets  

1. Sesame Seeds: These little seeds present in Rewari are loaded with essential minerals such as manganese, copper, iron, phosphorus, and calcium. The zinc in sesame seeds promotes bone health and prevents osteoporosis later in life. Among all the nuts and seeds commonly eaten across the world, sesame seeds have been found to contain the highest amount of phytosterols, which are known to lower bad cholesterol. Sesame seeds increase your levels of Vitamin E, which plays a vital role in fighting disease. Studies show that sesame seeds can improve the effectiveness of certain diabetes medication. Sesame seed oil is known to reduce hypertension and ease stress. The antioxidants in sesame seeds fight free radicals, thereby promoting youthfulness and strengthening the immune system. A substance in sesame seeds has found to inhibit the spread of many Cancers. 

2. Groundnuts or Peanuts (Moongfali): Peanuts contain a good amount of folate. Women who had a daily intake of 400 micrograms of folic acid before and during early pregnancy reduced their risk of having a baby born with a serious neural tube defect by up to 70%. One-fourth cup of peanuts can supply the body with 35% of the DV of manganese, a mineral which plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation. It may come as a surprise that peanuts can help prevent gallstones. But 20 years of studies have shown that eating 1 ounce of nuts, peanuts or peanut butter a week lowers the risk of developing gallstones by 25%. Peanuts are good sources of tryptophan, an essential amino acid which is important for the production of serotonin, one of the key brain chemicals involved in mood regulation. When depression occurs, a decreased amount of serotonin may be released from the nerve cells in the brain. Tryptophan may raise serotonin’s antidepressant effects when there is an increased amount of serotonin in the blood. Do you know what can be found in peanuts that gave them the “brain food” tag? This is due to their vitamin B3 or niacin content whose many health benefits include normal brain functioning and boosting memory power. The same nutrient which gives peanuts their memory enhancing power also helps lower and control cholesterol levels. Added to that is their copper contents which aids in reducing bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol levels. It is proven that regular nuts consumption is linked to reduced risk of heart disease. Peanuts are rich in heart-friendly monounsaturated fats and antioxidants such as oleic acid. Reach for a handful of peanuts and other nuts at least four times a week to reduce your risk of cardiovascular and coronary heart disease. Those who have an intake of the most niacin-rich foods like peanuts were 70% less likely to have developed Alzheimer’s disease. A quarter cup a day of peanuts can already supply almost a quarter of the daily needed value for niacin. A form of phytosterols called beta-sitosterol (SIT) is found in high concentrations in some plant oils, seeds, and legumes including peanuts. Phytosterols not only protects against cardiovascular disease by interfering with the absorption of cholesterol, they also protect against cancer by inhibiting tumor growth. Surprise!!! Eating nuts regularly is associated with a lowered risk of weight gain. Research has shown that people who eat nuts at least twice weekly are much less likely to gain weight than those who almost never eat them. 

3. Jaggery or GUR (Present in Gachak): Jaggery is a great remedy for anemia, asthma, joint pains and menstrual pains. It also aids in digestion, purifies blood and keeps the skin away from problems such as acnes and pimples. It is a great energy booster as it provides us lots of energy. If you feel drained at any point of the day, a piece of jaggery with water can do wonders for you. Jaggery is a wonderful sweet that not only tastes delicious but also purifies the blood. It acts as a cleansing agent for our blood and purifies it. You simply have to add it to your diet and have its benefits. It also helps get rid of digestion problems. If you eat a piece of jaggery every day with water or milk, your body will be free from all toxins. Jaggery is a rich source of iron and if women add it to their daily diet, it helps them get rid of anemia. It is a must eat for all women, especially teenagers and pregnant women. Jaggery is great for your skin also. It makes your skin healthy and charming. If you have acne and pimples on your skin, eat jaggery every day. You will definitely see them going away and get a lovely and flawless skin. It is an age-old remedy to cure dry cough and cold. If you don’t like eating Jaggery in its raw form, you can try jaggery laddoos, which are made with sesame seeds and jaggery. They are very good in taste. Jaggery is, often, recommended to Asthma patients as it is a great remedy to cure asthma. It has such properties which regulate body temperature which is very good for Asthma patients. It also has anti-allergy properties. 

4. Popcorn: Popcorn is kind of a big deal. Not just because it’s delicious, but it’s recently been found to actually be good for you. Really. A serving of popcorn contains more antioxidants than a day’s worth of fruits and vegetables. But that’s not to say that all popcorn is terrific for you, we’re talking plain popcorn here. A cup of plain pop only contains around 31 calories (compared to a cup of regular potato chips which holds around 139 calories…not exactly great). Popcorn also contains fiber and is the only snack that’s 100% whole grain. And whole grains are really good for you because they contain those antioxidants. In popcorn’s case, the antioxidants are found in the hull (the seedy part that gets stuck in your teeth) and are called polyphenols. Like all antioxidants, polyphenols help protect against cancers, heart diseases, and other illnesses that are caused by free radicals (cells that attack other healthy ones). Whole grains are also high in dietary fiber, rich in complex carbohydrates, and are low in fat, making popcorn a way better snack than anyone originally thought. And just because you’re not crazy about plain pop doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy its healthy benefits. Add on herbs like dill or curry, healthy oils such as olive or coconut, or sprinkle on some spices. 

9 Lifestyle Resolutions to Add More Years to Your Life

9 Lifestyle Resolutions to Add More Years to Your Life

It is New Year’s Eve and it is the time to take some resolutions, set some goals, and welcome the new beginnings in your life. All the things you want will look far-off without a good health. So this year, choose some healthy lifestyle resolutions and add many more new year eves to your life. 

With almost 23 years of my journey as a multispeciality primary care physician & preventive health specialist, I have always encouraged people to avoid serious health conditions by incorporating good and healthy habits into their lives. 

I often come across people with immense success, wealth, and fame in their lives but in between an occupied schedule, they take health for granted. LiveLifeMore is on a mission help you 'add years to your life and life to your years'. So here we have 6 resolutions derived from a study conducted by British researchers that can increase your lifespan. The study included health records of over 600,000 people analyzing habits that add or remove years from their lives.

1. Boycott Tobacco From Your Life 

The first and most common habit that always draws you to life-threatening severe diseases is the tobacco addiction. If you have never tried it, you should never too because a pack of 10 cigarettes a day can deduct 7 years from your life. Lung Cancer, Mouth & Neck Cancer, Peripheral Vascular Diseases, COPD ( Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), Stroke and Heart Attack are common health issues caused by tobacco use. However, the study confirmed that in the long run if you use tobacco & decide to quit tobacco, you can regain the health of a non-smoker.

2. Reduce Cholesterol Levels 

High blood cholesterol is a major reason for heart problems & strokes. It can reduce up to 8 months of your life. Some people have genetic cholesterol problems, but others indulge in wrong dietary plans that includes high saturated fats with almost no exercise routine. You can curb cholesterol levels with ideal diets and exercises for a healthy life.

3. Lose Excessive Weight 

Overweight people, who managed to lose weight in the study gave excellent results. You can add two months to your life for throwing every one kilogram of that extra fat you have.

4. Balance your blood pressure 

Every other heart-related problem was generated from imbalanced blood pressure. High blood pressure was the second most influential problem found in the study. A high blood pressure patient experiences 5.2 years short in his life due to some casual life-shortening effects. Stabilizing your BP level requires proper diet, exercise, and even medication sometimes.

5. Be Open-Minded to a Positive Lifestyle 

Positivity is the fire to keep and negativity is the smoke to let go. Typically people tend to NEVER CHANGE their personalities. But a few alterations can allow positivity in your persona, your health, further guiding you to a longer and happier life. Everyone experiences obstacles in life but being positive ensures that your health is unaffected by these obstacles.

6. Stay Physically Active 

The daily exercise study that was conducted on 5823 adults by Brigham Young University researchers proves that jogging 30-40 minutes or even walking briskly for that long can give you 9 years younger cells than your present age. 

7. Ditch Soda 

A study in the American Journal of Public Health concluded that drinking soda may be shortening your lifespan even if you are not overweight. This five-year long study confirmed that soda intake results in fewer telomeres (caps on the ends of chromosomes directly linked to aging). Except for diet soda, all other soda types affected our aging “clock” telomeres. However, many pieces of researches associate heavy diet soda intake to weight gain, type 2 diabetes, and depression- all potential life-shorteners. 

8. Stop Sitting So much 

Simply stand up more during the day and it’ll boost your longevity by increasing the length of your telomeres. This was found in a study from the British Journal of Sports Medicine. The study measured the effects of sitting time and physical activity among 49 sedentary, overweight participants. Researchers saw increment in telomere lengths of individuals indulged in physical activities for 6 months. 

9. Control High Blood Sugar In Diabetes 

Diabetes Mellitus or simply Diabetes affects around 370 million global population. It is important to control high blood sugar level in diabetic conditions. Healthy eating, managing stress, being physically fit, and constantly taking prescribed medications should be in your new year resolutions to charm your life again and live happily for the long term with diabetes. 

I, along with my co-founder Dietitian Pallavi Jassal & Team LiveLifeMore, sincerely wish your health & happiness in 2018 & always. By inculcating the above-mentioned modifications in your lifestyle, you can surely enhance your life quantitatively & qualitatively.

Hello. Excess of vitamin B12 may cause headache, dizziness, diarrhea, indigestion, upset stomach, vomiting, nausea, back pain, swelling, arthritis, anxiety, nervousness and lack of coordination. Eat potassium-rich foods or take a potassium supplement when eating vitamin B-12 rich foods. Potassium can reduce the absorption of vitamin B-12 into the body. However, high potassium consumption can cause toxicity, so never exceed your recommended potassium intake unless instructed by your doctor. Take a vitamin C supplement with vitamin B-12 rich foods. Vitamin C may destroy dietary vitamin B-12. You should consult your doctor asap.

Hello lybrate-user. I being a nutritionist believe that only such supplements cannot help you to get back in shape, but if you are on a diet or work out regime .the results can be faster. But it is not bad as a metabolic booster. We are observing National Nutrition Week, and offering good offers on weight loss packages as well.
