Pregnancy - 5 Tips To Control Obesity During It!

Pregnancy - 5 Tips To Control Obesity During It!

Are you gaining excessive amount of weight during your pregnancy, well you are not alone.  Most of the pregnant women tend to be overweight or obese. You are viewed as overweight, if your pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI) is approximately between twenty-five and twenty-nine. Your BMI is the relationship between your height and weight. You are considered obese, if your BMI is thirty or more.

However, here are some ways with which you can control the weight gain during pregnancy:

  1. Eat a solid, yet less-calorie dietUtilize a convenient pregnancy food journal to ensure you are getting enough supplements and drinking a lot of water every day. The journal is additionally helpful for keeping track of your mood swings and appetite levels, so you can spot patterns you may need to change. Since you realize that you have to take after a particular eating regimen, the following are very solid for you:
    • Crisp leafy foods
    • Oats and bread made with whole grains
    • Low-fat milk and dairy items
    • Foods rich in folate such as strawberries, spinach and beans
    • Unsaturated "good" fats such as olive oil, canola oil, and shelled nut oil
  2. Regular exercise: In case you are a relative newcomer to work out, you can start with pregnancy exercise for beginners. You can practice low-impact exercises; for example, walking, swimming and light heart stimulating exercises. Never begin an exercise without first talking with your medicinal services supplier or doctor. Furthermore, make sure to you adhere to the thirteen principles of safe pregnancy work out. A few women do get in shape during pregnancy in case that they roll out solid eating regimen and make way for life improvements, so make sure to check in with your specialist if this happens.
  3. Comprehend your calorie needs: As specified before, not all pregnant women have to put on equivalent measures of weight. Thus, you have to know precisely what number of calories you require. Talk with your specialist to get the correct number.
  4. Eat frequent, small meals: This is true when you need to deal with your weight, pregnant or not. Eating successive little dinners is particularly helpful when you are pregnant. Eating a full feast makes you wiped out.
  5. Taking prenatal pre-natal vitamins: This is something your specialist will recommend in any case. Yet, in case that you require an extra motivation to take your pre-birth vitamins consistent, then this is it. As you most likely are aware, your body needs additional food and nutrients during pregnancy. In case that you need to deal with your weight and take in the supplements without stacking yourself with calories, take your vitamins.

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

Green Tea

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

Green Tea
Green tea contains high amounts of polyphenols, which are antioxidants. Polyphenols are known to have anti-oxidative properties which can help prevent type 2 diabetes.

Epigallocathechin gallete (egcg) is a polyphenol, the most abundant form of catechin in green tea. It is known to be the main attributable factor of beneficial effects of green tea. Through a complex biochemical reaction, egcg in green tea helps sensitize cells so they are better able to metabolize sugar, which is beneficial for both type 1 and 2 diabetes.

Green tea consumption is associated with reduced mortality due to all causes and cardiovascular disease. It is effective in decreasing blood pressure, low density lipoprotein cholesterol, oxidative stress, and a marker of chronic inflammation. This acts as a therapeutic tool for obesity also.

Green tea is good for people with diabetes because it helps the metabolic system function better.

If you have protected sex than you don't need to worry. If you are sexually inactive than you should go for USG to find out causative factor for irregular periods. You can consult me through lybrate for Homoeopathic treatment and further guidance

Hi, I am 14 weeks 2 days pregnant but not showing. I felt slight butterflies in my abdomen 1 week back but now i dont feel anything. I feel slight cramps while walking and sleeping and some incerase in white/creamy color discharge also. USG done on 13th and all was fine. Cramps are like some pressure is there , and sometimes on only left or right side. Can i get my USG done again.Is it harmful ? i have already 4 USG's done. Please help

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Belly will start showing only after 16 weeks, generally it is more prominent only after 20 weeks. If you are having white curdy discharge, it may be due to a fungal infection. See your Gynaecologist for the same. She may recommend USG if required. USG is not harmful to the baby.

I am 21 years old and I am diagnosed to have tb in my uterus. My gynaecologist has suggested to take akt4 tablets all four tablets together in empty stomach. Is it the correct doses or it will cause any side effect?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Yes. There are side effects with all medicines. These tablets can cause nausea, vomiting, occasionally effect liver functions. However they are very effective in treating tuberculosis.

Hi doc, I am not able to breast feed my baby he is now 20 days old but I am not getting any milk in my breast. Nor I am feeling my breast heavy please suggest me some good medicine so that I can provide him my milk.

MD Pediatrics
Pediatrician, Vadodara
Many times there is a misconception that you are not getting enough milk. It is important to feed the baby with good attachment and position. There are many videos on YouTube which can show you about the position that the mother should take during feeding the baby. Latchment/ attachment is very important so that the baby gets good amount of milk. Also at the end of 10 to 20 days you can meet your doctor to add certain the weight gain the baby has got in these days if it is around 15 to 20 grams per day then it is minimum weight gain. Baby receiving adequate amount of breastmilk passes 5 to 7 times urine per day. The pediatrician will tell you more about position attachment of mother and baby during breastfeeding.

Hello doctor. I took hcg urine test and the result was negative. But I am confused why my periods are late. The dates of my previous cycles are Oct 18 (high bleeding) Nov 11 (only light bleeding for 1 hour) Now its 21 dec but It is not started yet. Kindly tell me. What is the matter going on? Is it normal? What type of diet should I take to induce periods.

Normal cycle length varies from 21 days to 35 days so few days here and there if fine but see a gynaecologists to rule out other causes.

9 Lifestyle Resolutions to Add More Years to Your Life

9 Lifestyle Resolutions to Add More Years to Your Life

It is New Year’s Eve and it is the time to take some resolutions, set some goals, and welcome the new beginnings in your life. All the things you want will look far-off without a good health. So this year, choose some healthy lifestyle resolutions and add many more new year eves to your life. 

With almost 23 years of my journey as a multispeciality primary care physician & preventive health specialist, I have always encouraged people to avoid serious health conditions by incorporating good and healthy habits into their lives. 

I often come across people with immense success, wealth, and fame in their lives but in between an occupied schedule, they take health for granted. LiveLifeMore is on a mission help you 'add years to your life and life to your years'. So here we have 6 resolutions derived from a study conducted by British researchers that can increase your lifespan. The study included health records of over 600,000 people analyzing habits that add or remove years from their lives.

1. Boycott Tobacco From Your Life 

The first and most common habit that always draws you to life-threatening severe diseases is the tobacco addiction. If you have never tried it, you should never too because a pack of 10 cigarettes a day can deduct 7 years from your life. Lung Cancer, Mouth & Neck Cancer, Peripheral Vascular Diseases, COPD ( Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), Stroke and Heart Attack are common health issues caused by tobacco use. However, the study confirmed that in the long run if you use tobacco & decide to quit tobacco, you can regain the health of a non-smoker.

2. Reduce Cholesterol Levels 

High blood cholesterol is a major reason for heart problems & strokes. It can reduce up to 8 months of your life. Some people have genetic cholesterol problems, but others indulge in wrong dietary plans that includes high saturated fats with almost no exercise routine. You can curb cholesterol levels with ideal diets and exercises for a healthy life.

3. Lose Excessive Weight 

Overweight people, who managed to lose weight in the study gave excellent results. You can add two months to your life for throwing every one kilogram of that extra fat you have.

4. Balance your blood pressure 

Every other heart-related problem was generated from imbalanced blood pressure. High blood pressure was the second most influential problem found in the study. A high blood pressure patient experiences 5.2 years short in his life due to some casual life-shortening effects. Stabilizing your BP level requires proper diet, exercise, and even medication sometimes.

5. Be Open-Minded to a Positive Lifestyle 

Positivity is the fire to keep and negativity is the smoke to let go. Typically people tend to NEVER CHANGE their personalities. But a few alterations can allow positivity in your persona, your health, further guiding you to a longer and happier life. Everyone experiences obstacles in life but being positive ensures that your health is unaffected by these obstacles.

6. Stay Physically Active 

The daily exercise study that was conducted on 5823 adults by Brigham Young University researchers proves that jogging 30-40 minutes or even walking briskly for that long can give you 9 years younger cells than your present age. 

7. Ditch Soda 

A study in the American Journal of Public Health concluded that drinking soda may be shortening your lifespan even if you are not overweight. This five-year long study confirmed that soda intake results in fewer telomeres (caps on the ends of chromosomes directly linked to aging). Except for diet soda, all other soda types affected our aging “clock” telomeres. However, many pieces of researches associate heavy diet soda intake to weight gain, type 2 diabetes, and depression- all potential life-shorteners. 

8. Stop Sitting So much 

Simply stand up more during the day and it’ll boost your longevity by increasing the length of your telomeres. This was found in a study from the British Journal of Sports Medicine. The study measured the effects of sitting time and physical activity among 49 sedentary, overweight participants. Researchers saw increment in telomere lengths of individuals indulged in physical activities for 6 months. 

9. Control High Blood Sugar In Diabetes 

Diabetes Mellitus or simply Diabetes affects around 370 million global population. It is important to control high blood sugar level in diabetic conditions. Healthy eating, managing stress, being physically fit, and constantly taking prescribed medications should be in your new year resolutions to charm your life again and live happily for the long term with diabetes. 

I, along with my co-founder Dietitian Pallavi Jassal & Team LiveLifeMore, sincerely wish your health & happiness in 2018 & always. By inculcating the above-mentioned modifications in your lifestyle, you can surely enhance your life quantitatively & qualitatively.
