Eating Every Two Hours or Three Balanced Meals?

Eating Every Two Hours or Three Balanced Meals?

 

  Diet-induced thermogenesis or 'grazing' (eating every two hours) as it is called in the West, is a popular tool for weight loss. The reason this approach also emerged on the weight loss scene was because:    (a) it was used for diabetics to maintain their blood sugar levels.

(b) People started moving away from eating three basic, balanced meals a day.

(c) Some overate at regular meals.

While this technique has helped many, you can also eat three meals and also take a snack between meals when you are hungry. Follow the approach i am putting forth in this book and make sure if it's for weight loss, you have some form of concentrated protein at each meal. If you are going to eat two hours, please do the the following:

1. See what your food choices are: it should not be processed foods like biscuits or toasts ( made of white bread- maida). Instead go for a brown rice poha, whole wheat crackers with hummus, carrot sticks, and fruits (see snack section).

2. Chew. That's something that most people miss while 'grazing'.

3. If you tend to have maxi snacks, then have mini meals at meal time. So be mindful of the quantity consumed at those times.

The decision to have three meals a day, two meals a day, or 'graze' every two hours is entirely your call. My experience with this approach has shown me that if you eat a balanced breakfast, lunch, and dinner- then eating between meals is not necessary unless you get really hungry.

How can a woman get pregnant, and how we can identify that she is pregnant or not?

How can a woman get pregnant, and how we can identify that she is pregnant or not?
Hi A woman can get pregnant by having regular vaginal intercourse during the fertile period of her menstrual cycle. This is provided she has regular periods and has no significant medical problems. Her first sign of pregnancy is skipping her periods which can be accompanied by fatigue, nausea breast pain, feeling bloated etc. If you are planning pregnancy in near future I would advise you to start taking folic acid supplement tablets. Hope this information has helped you.

Unfortunately no exercise will reduce breast size. More important is to be mentally not conscious of whatever shape, size colour which has come as natural gift. All are separate and unique. However plastic surgery is only solution if you don't adjust mentally.

PCOS

PCOS

What do we mean by Polycystic Ovaries?

Ans: Poly means many (multiple) and cysts are fluid-filled areas. Thus, a woman with polycystic ovaries will have a higher number of follicles (immature eggs which look like small cysts) in her ovaries. Because of more follicles growing in her ovaries, these appear larger in size on ultrasound. It is like to accommodate more number of students in a classroom, we need a larger room.


Polycystic ovaries are very common affecting 20 in 100 (20%) of women.

Having polycystic looking ovaries on ultrasound does not mean you have a polycystic ovary syndrome. Only around 6 or 7 in 100 (6 - 7%) of women with polycystic ovaries have PCOS and we need to look at other symptoms and hormones to diagnose this condition.

As such tablets are having high hormones better not to use as family planning method and use only in emergency. Learn about different family planning methods. Occassionaly such tablets do not cause any problem to most of women.
