Eating Chocolate On A Low Carb Diet!

When it comes to chocolate, darker is usually healthier. Dark chocolate is generally made with a high ratio of chocolate solids and very little added sugar

Choosing low carb chocolate

  1. Choose dark chocolate made from at least 70% cocoa solids
  2. Choose chocolate that hasn’t come in contact with any gluten-containing grains.
  3. Select chocolate produced organically by people working under fair conditions.
  4. Choose specifically labeled low carb chocolate.
  5. Double check the label for net carbs and hidden carbs.
     

The chocolate rules

For health benefits and weight loss, dark chocolate enjoyed in moderation on a low carb diet is possible – but there are rules.

  1. Set a “chocolate limit” and eat only a realistic amount – a few square inches.
  2. Count your carbs and your calories. Be strict, honest and accurate.
  3. If your cravings for sweets increase, reconsider your decision to eat chocolate.
  4. Eat a maximum of 10 net carbs per hour to avoid insulin spikes.
     

Your best chocolate choices

Low carb chocolate is readily available online and in retail stores. The amount of choices is mind-boggling. These all-natural choices are the highest in nutritional value and the lowest in net carbs.

1) Early to bed (up to 10.30 pm) & early to get up (before 5.45 am).
2) You should get motion (natural call) immediately after you wake up.
3) You should get optimum evacuation of your bowel - once, in early morning. This is the proper period for motion.

Well I guess you are not considering tubectome/vasectomy for one time solution. All contraceptive pills are basically synthetic hormones.Sadly all of themhave hosts of side-effects, esp when taken regularly.. Meanwhile if you know about the safe periods..you can indulge in it without contracptive then 1st to 7 th day and 21 st to last day of her menstrual cycle.

Breast discharge has numerous reasons ,most common being drug induced as you mention that you are on few medications right now ,check for the side effects of those medications and watch after stopping them also check if you started to have this symptom after you took those medicines, if not so serum prolactin level is first thing to be checked for.

This might be because of hormonal imbalance or thyroid dysfunction or any uterine dysfunction hence first you undergo thyroid profile, hormonal profile and USG abdomen to rue out the exact cause for irregular periods so that once undergone get back to me with reports to advise you further.

I am 26 yrs old and my weight is rising continuously after cesarean delivery especially lower portion of the body.

It is most likely related to over eating and lack of exercise. Therefore please eat a healthy diet rich in proteins and low in calories and sweets and do regular exercise. Also use a abdominal binder to help tone up your abdominal muscles.

It's unlikely that you will gain weight due to contraceptives, esp since its low dose ocp. Your age is appropriate for ocp use, just use it under supervision of a gynaecologist, all the best.

PCOS: What You Should Know About It?

PCOS: What You Should Know About It?

PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome is an endocrine disorder in women, in which the female hormones, progesterone and estrogen, are imbalanced. This imbalance leads to the formation of cysts (benign masses) in the ovaries. PCOS tends to affect your heart functions, fertility, menstrual cycle and appearance.

PCOS is a complex condition because it is not entirely clear why some women have such high androgen levels. What is clear is that many women with PCOS also have issues relating to obesity, insulin resistance (a condition where insulin is not effective in lowering blood sugars) and diabetes.

The complexity of PCOS is compounded by the fact that some women with PCOS do not have visible cysts on their ovaries, and some women with cysts in their ovaries do necessarily have PCOS.

How Does PCOS Affect Fertility?

If you’re living with PCOS, the excessive male hormones that your body is creating can interfere with the production of the female hormones that your body needs in order to ovulate. Because your body is not ovulating, progesterone (the hormone that causes the lining of the uterus to thicken) is not being produced. This results in an absence of periods or irregular menstruation. When there is a lack of ovulation and menstruation, conception just isn’t possible.

There are certain symptoms, which can be indicative of PCOS; these symptoms tend to begin as a woman's menstrual cycle starts. In certain cases, however, PCOS may also affect a woman in her mid age. PCOS can also cause excessive hair growth in unwanted places like above the upper lip, chin, arms and chest like a male.

The symptoms are:

  • Increase in the production of male hormone, leads to development of male characteristics
  • The size of the breasts may reduce
  • The tone and the texture of the voice may change and become similar to a man's voice
  • Hair may start to fall
  • You may suffer from acne and pimple breakouts on your face
  • It can lead to sudden weight gain
  • It may affect a woman's fertility
  • It may lead to pain in the pelvis

Other symptoms: Apart from these symptoms, a woman may also experience other health complications such as high levels of bad cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes.

Causes: The causes of PCOS are not well known, however, the likely causes are genetics and hormonal complications. If someone in the family has PCOS, then the risk of being affected by PCOS rises significantly. The other likely cause is the overproduction of the male hormone androgen in the female body. Although androgen is a male hormone, the female body also produces it in trace amounts. However, in some cases, when it is overproduced, it might impair the ovulation process.

Diagnosis and Treatment: Once the condition is diagnosed, there are certain treatments, which are recommended for the patient. The condition in itself does not have a cure, but the symptoms can only be controlled.

There are a number of options available, depending on the main issue you are experiencing.

  • Weight loss can be more difficult because of the higher levels of testosterone, but it has a very beneficial effect on balancing hormones and restoring regular periods in obese women. So exercise and a change of diet could have a significant impact.
  • Insulin sensitizers, such as Metformin, reduce the impact of insulin resistance and can also assist in weight loss.
  • Ovulation-inducing drugs such as Clomiphene (Serophene or Clomid) can stimulate the ovaries.
  • If you do not respond to Clomiphene, injectable drugs (FSH) can be used, but these require specialist facilities and close monitoring of the response to avoid severe side effects and multiple pregnancies.
  • IVF treatment may be necessary for very difficult situations.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
