I was having fasting whole day no any pain I was removed the fasting the legs are paining. Why?
When there is no proper nutrition supply to muscle due to skipping of regular meals or fasting there is a chance for leg pain at night. Because of lack of nutrition during a normal or more workload to muscles, the muscles will not cope with the demand. So there will be deposition of waste products, lactic acid in muscle. This is will create cramp and pain when you go for sleep.

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Advice... Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold).

You can safely lose weight at home with a healthy diet and lots of exercise. * Don't skip meals esp breakfast- Skipping breakfast seems like a simple way to cut calories, but it can make you hungry the rest of the day. * Drink plenty of water - Water is essential for burning calories. If you let yourself get dehydrated, your metabolism drags, and that means slower weight loss. * Add Protein to your diet - Your body burns calories when digesting and metabolizing the protein you eat, so a high-protein diet can boost metabolism by up to 80-100 calories per day. * Avoid Liquid calories - Liquid calories come from beverages like sugary soft drinks, fruit juices, chocolate milk and energy drinks. * Limit your intake of refined carbs - The main dietary sources of refined carbs are white flour, white bread, white rice, sodas, pastries, snacks, sweets, pasta, breakfast cereals and added sugar. * Avoid excess salt and sugar. * Add Eggs to Your Diet - Eggs are the ultimate weight loss food. They are low in calories, high in protein and loaded with all sorts of nutrients. * Eat More Slowly - Chewing more slowly may help you eat fewer calories and increase the production of hormones that are linked to weight loss. * Take Probiotics - Of all the probiotic bacteria, Lactobacillus gasseri shows the most promising effects on weight loss. * Start Physical activities like swimming, jogging, cardio atleast 4 days a week. * Focus on Changing Your Lifestyle - Instead of focusing only on losing weight, make it a primary goal to nourish your body with healthy food and nutrients. Eat to become a healthier, happier, fitter person — not just to lose weight. Regards!
