According to who recommendations, weight gain or loss of more than 3.5 kg can put some negative effect on body and there is no genuine medicine or diet which can reduce your weight by 20 kg in a month-------try to ask logical questions--------------------- everyone has a favourite face cream or treatment, but beautiful skin starts with nourishment from within. Older cells are constantly shed and replaced by younger ones and a steady supply of micronutrients is essential to support this rapid growth. Eat the correct balance of foods and you'll feed your skin the vital nutrients it needs to help it stay soft, glowing. Fair and blemish-free.------------------- eat your five-a-day--------------------- fruit and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help to protect skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are caused by smoking, pollution and sunlight and can cause wrinkling and age spots. Eat a rainbow of colourful fruit and vegetables and aim for at least five portions a day. Betacarotene, found in pumpkin, carrots and sweet potatoes, and lutein, found in kale, papaya and spinach are potent antioxidants, important for normal skin cell development and healthy skin tone.---------------- vitamin c------------------ vitamin c is also a super antioxidant. It is needed for a strong immune system, radiant skin and helps blemishes heal properly. The best sources are blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes. They all help to produce collagen that strengthens the capillaries that supply the skin.-------------------- cut out crash diets---------------- repeatedly losing and regaining weight can take its toll on your skin, causing sagging, wrinkles and stretch marks. Crash diets are often short in essential vitamins too. Over long periods of time this type of dieting will reflect on your skin.------------------ stock up on selenium------------------- selenium is a powerful antioxidant. It works alongside other antioxidants such as vitamins e and c and is essential for the immune system. Studies suggest that a selenium-rich diet can help to protect against skin cancer, sun damage and age spots. One way to boost your intake is to eat brazil nuts. Just four nuts will provide the recommended daily amount. Mix brazil nuts with other seeds rich in vitamin e as a snack or salad sprinkle. Other good sources are fish, shellfish, eggs, wheatgerm, tomatoes and broccoli.---------------- vitamin e-------------------- vitamin e protects skin from oxidative (cell) damage and supports healthy skin growth. Foods high in vitamin e include almonds, avocado, hazelnuts, pine nuts and sunflower and corn oils.-------- drink up-------------- skin needs moisture to stay flexible. Even mild dehydration will cause your skin to look dry, tired and slightly grey. Drink six to eight glasses of water a day - all fluids count towards your daily allowance, but water is the best. If you work in an office, keep a large bottle of water on your desk to remind you to drink. Herbal, caffeine-free teas are good too. Try to avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, both can age the skin.------------

Hello doctor I was 68 kg before but post marriage I have gained 10 kgs more due to different food habits and lifestyle. I go to gym and now I have reduced few of my eating habits like non veg and fried foods. But I am not able to reduce my weight even though I do household work plus gym. I can't skip any of my meal or I feel hungry I get headache o vomiting. I tend to go washroom after my every meal. After sometime I feel hungry again I have switched to oats for dinner reduced intake of rice but no change in my weight yet. I am healthy but over weight is the only concern.

Follow a healthy lifestyle as fat loss is a gradual process. There is no quick fix approach. Following a healthy diet which has optimal amounts of first class proteins (dairy products, eggs, chicken etc) reduced carbohydrates (white rice, poha etc) & healthy fats (almonds. Walnuts etc) along with a structured exercise program that is balanced with weight training and cardio will surely help. Besides these factors, we need to take into account that there are no hormonal imbalances that can impede your rate of fat loss. Stay consistent & patient in order to achieve your weight loss goals. Kindly contact us for diet & workout plan.

DIET TO LOSE WEIGHT

Wouldn't it be a dream if you could enjoy your favourite food and lose weight? Losing weight and to follow particular diet can be hard, but it is possible if you have healthy diet plan. Many of you have heard that the best way to lose weight to join a gym and workout for hours. However, being a nutritionist I would say diet plays 80% role and exercise plays 20% role. The body of each person is different and so the different calorie requirements. Make sure you provide enough calorie to your body through 3 major meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner), include food rich in carbohydrates, protein, fiber and low in fat and a healthy snacks at least twice a day. Here is a general guideline, how you can make your own healthy menu.

EARLY MORNING:

Start your day with these metabolic booster supplements and keep your body fresh and energetic throughout the day. This can be achieved through having a tsp of overnight soaked methi seeds, cinnamon powder, wheat grass powder or a glass of thin buttermilk with mint leaves.

BREAKFAST:

Breakfast is the first meal taken after rising in the morning to regain metabolic activity of our body. It is rightly said that breakfast is to break the overnight fast. It is very important that you should take breakfast every morning which comprises of all types nutrients from various food groups.

Poha, upma, pancakes, muesli, egg whites and brown/multigrain bread toast are few good options to provide enough calorie and nutrients to your body.

MID-DAY:

Fill yourself with guilt free food and keep your energy level high. To keep your body energy level high take light food at 2 – 3 hours gap after breakfast. At this time you can have a cup of green tea, handful of nuts or a fruit.

SNACKS TIME:

A snack is a portion of food often smaller than a regular meal, it should be rich in anti-oxidants. Also natural food at this time will help you to satisfy your need of something crispy & crunchy. Have a cup of green tea or normal tea / coffee along with khakhra, peanuts, kurmura, biscuits of ragi/oats/multigrain flour and a roasted chana.

LUNCH & DINNER:

Lunch is a mid-day meal where in dinner is the last & important meal of the day. It should be divided into 4 courses.

First course is soup or salad which will help stomach a quick rest to our hunger. Second is the carbohydrate source – include roti made up of jowar /ragi /bajra /oats /flaxseed powder /soya. Third course is vegetable a good source of micro nutrients (vitamin & mineral), have different colours of vegetables every day to enjoy the goodness of nutrients and the fourth and most important course is protein add curd, sprouts, pulses, dal helps to rejuvenate your skin, hair and muscles.

Alfamalt tonic 2 teaspoonful 2 times after meal 1.Keep a food diary. Chart what and when you eat every day for several weeks to learn about your eating habits and identify places to add calories. Online programs like MyFitnessPal and Fitday can make tracking easy-peasy. 2. Add it up. Try adding an extra 200+ calories a day in the beginning 4. Focus on quality, not quantity. Even when you?re trying to gain weight, burgers, chips, and milkshakes all day (?err day) isn?t great for a body. Instead, choose nutrient-dense foods from all food groups, Good options include whole grains like whole wheat pasta, fruits and vegetables, nuts, and lean protein. 5. Eat more frequently. And never skip meals! It?s easy to feel full fast when you start introducing more calories into each meal; changes in food intake might also bring on gastrointestinal issues and even acne. Make things easier on your belly by spreading calorie intake out over five to six smaller meals throughout the day. 6. Snack smart. Choose calorie-dense snacks like nuts, cheese, dried fruits, yogurt with granola, avocados, and pretzels or whole grain crackers with nut butters or hummus. If leaving the house for a while, pack snacks for calories-on-the-go. 7. Drink it down. Instead of diet soda and other low-cal drinks, choose filling, high-calorie beverages like smoothies, healthy shakes, or liquid meal replacements. Drink fluids in between meals to add calories and to avoid filling up on beverages during meals (which might make people eat less solid food). 8. Eat before bed. Consider this your permission slip for the midnight munchies. A lot of healing and regeneration happens while we sleep, so eating before bed can give your body the nutrients it needs to do the work. 9. Set attainable goals. And remember to be patient. Just like weight loss, weight gain is a process?and often a slow one, Cassetty says. Gaining might take years, so don?t give up hope if you don?t pack on immediate pounds. The rate at which a person needs to gain weight depends on their health goals and current health status, and a physician or nutritionist can help establish a reasonable goal weight. Signs of reaching an ideal weight include increased energy, stabilized hunger patterns, and overall good health. 10. Get support. It?s important to have a strong support system throughout the process of gaining weight, Cassetty says, both to help gainers achieve their goals and to cope with the emotional issues that might arise from bodily changes. 11. Dress well. Don?t put off feeling good about your appearance. Talk nicely to yourself and choose outfits that make you feel good
