Hi, try having warm lemon water with honey every morning. Below tips could help you start your weight-loss journey. 1. Never eat a snack out of a carton or a cover. Always use a cup or a plate to so you know how much you are eating. 2. Have at least one bright colored fruit and one bright colored vegetable a day 3. Take a small snack box to office with almonds, walnuts and other dry fruits to satisfy your cravings 4. Try to have your dinner by 8 so that you are not too hungry and also make healthy choices at dinner. 5. People who eat breakfast have a better success rate at losing weight. 6. Beware of zero trans fat and fat free foods as you might end up eating high sugar and carb containing foods. 7. People who are emotional eaters learn to identify the emotion that makes you eat unhealthy food and try diverting your mind to something else you love 8. If your plates are too big trade them off for a 9 inch plates 9. Replace your weighing scale with a tape measure. 10. Share your weight-loss journey with a family member or friend so that you are accountable to each other. 11. Green tea at least once a day will help you boost your metabolism 12. Sleep helps in repair and regulating your hormones. Sleep atleast 8 hours in a day. 13. Have fruits at least twice a day.

First of all = you do not have sugar (diabetes) secondly = metformin was given to you for pcod as metformin is also meant for insulin resistance *(which in later stage leads to diabetes) all the symptoms that happened to you were because of low blood sugar. It happened with metformin so you are advised not to take it. You don't need it! please do not be tense- eat well and forget metformin- you will be ok.

My father has done by pass surgery so is it reliable to eat banana or lady fingers?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

My father has done by pass surgery so is it reliable to eat banana or lady fingers?
It is better to avoid both the things on daily basis, because lady's finger require more oil for cooking which is not good for heart indirectly and banana increases appetite and has more carbohydrates so not good if taken daily. You can have lady's finger once in 10-15 days and 2-3 bananas in a week, bananas have high potassium content so good for heart but not to ignore above mentioned points.

I get chest pains and cough many times and I do smoke and I am not able to quit smoking.Please tell.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

I get chest pains and cough many times and I do smoke and I am not able to quit smoking.Please tell.
Dear Lybrate user, smoking is a choice and all choices are made by us. You can quit smoking only if you tell yourself that you can do it. Not when you accept in your mind that "you are not able to quit". You must have taken many challenges in your life - I am sure you don't want to be called a loser at this as well. You have detailed about having cough and chest pains- Its possible that you may develop infection like tuberculosis or later if you don't quit - the risk of lung cancer is also very high. Make the right choice- quit today.

Dear , it is very nice to hear from a gentleman who has fought a heart disease and is trying to lead an active life. Since at a younger age you have been posted for a cabg and not a ptca (angioplasty) I feel you must be having a minimum 3 vessel disease. I suggest be a bit cautious, the ejection fraction of 50% is healthy and post 3 -4 months should reach upto 60% but it again depends upon the overall health of the endocardium before and after the surgery. I suggest let your cardiac surgeon direct you on the level of exertion as he is the best person to know your case. Best of luck.
