For abdominal fat, important is to start doing exercises either walk for 40-45 mins daily, or some abdominal exercises. Aslo avoid oily and fatty foods, start taking one cup of green tea daily which will help as an antioxidant also. Do not take any fat burning pills if you are breast feeding yor new born child.

Hello lybrate-user, First of all kindly do not aim to lose seven kg in a month. It's too high and any measures which will help you loose that much weight will have its downside. Secondly I don't understand the reason why you want to start herbal tea or other stuff. It's gud for health is a common understanding but it's not some magic potion which will reduce your excess weight without doing anything. For you to reduce weight, you will have to look at your diet as well as physical output. Start going for a brisk walk daily for 45 mins. No talking with someone while walking. It Shud be actually be brisk not a leisurely walk. Stop all junk food especially south Indian sodas or idlis or chat or bakery products. Consume booked water for the whole day. Preferably add dhaniya and shunthi in it while boiling. You will require medicines for PCOS. Consult a doctor personally at your city and undergo Panchkarma. Actual treatment at a good centre will be more better for better results. Online advice is fine but kindly take treatment after showing your reports physically to a doctor at your city. Tk care. Kindly leave a positive feedback if you are satisfied by my suggestion. Bye.

It is better to get checked as it is not normal to get such bleeding like twice/week visit your gynecologist once.

Weight loss and fat loss are not the same. Weight is your whole body weight which is muscle, organs, bones, water. Whereas fat weight is just the fat. You have to concentrate on fats only. There can be many conditions why your weight is not decreasing 1) you may have some hormonal issues. 2) you have developed muscles, which is extremely good. Muscles give you strength and shape to your body. It is most metabolically active tissue of your body. 3) there can be a lot of water retention in the body. It is extremely good that you are already exercising. But you need to follow a good nutrition program as that will help you to lose fat from the body. Your diet must include whole food like vegetables, fruits, whole grains like roti, brown rice, or sheddo chaal which bengalis eat, whole dais like moong, rajma, bengal gram and eggs, fish and chicken in the right proportion. Drink lots of water. Avoid sugars and sweets. You have to see that your body loses inches. Do not bother about the weight.

Calcium Defiency in women

Diet is a well balanced food combination which should be tailored according to personal needs and as circumstances changes specially. The wrong food can fail to nourish us, can keep us awake at night, make us sluggish and overweight or tense us up;

Major points to be kept in mind to plan our diet are:

Personal Needs.
Stages of our life.
Lifestyle.
Genetic and temperament conditions.
Clinical condition.
Personal needs are likes, dislikes and your time availability
Stages of our life we are in is very important as age plays a major role. So, supplement and manipulation of food group depends on our age.

There are many health problems those arise because of lifestyle we follow:

Posture-related problems.
Fatigue.
Mental health disorders, like depression and anxiety.
Obesity.
Heart disease.
High blood pressure.
Abnormal heart beats.
Menstrual problems.
Acne and other skin problems.

Common deficiencies noted in women are:

Calcium
Vitamins-D
Protein.
Phosphorus
Vegetarian and non - vegetarian diet have their unique role in maintaining bone mineral metabolism of body.

Calcium Deficiency in women makes entire matrix of the bone week, therefore keeping check of calcium in our diet can prevent women from osteoporosis in later ages after menopause. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body, with over 99% of the amount present is being found in the bones and teeth. After the age of 35, both men and women start losing calcium from their bones. During menopause, however, the rate of loss increases rapidly for women. It also has a role to play in nerve function, blood clotting, muscle health, and other areas.

Source of calcium
Milk
Paneer
Almonds
Seeds-sesame ,sunflower , cheese
Soya bean and their products
Learn to combine calcium rich food for proper absorption, food contain oxalic acid prevent ca absorption like spinach and lotus stem.

Sources of protein: like fish, meat, Poultry, eggs are also important.
Source of vitamin-D: Vitamin D can be obtained from sun exposure, food like eggs, mushrooms, orange and fish.
Source of Phosphorus: Phosphorus is found in high amounts in protein rich foods such as milk and milk products and meat and alternatives, such as beans, lentils, nuts, Sunflower Seeds and Broccoli.
Common menstrual problems faced by women are cramps, pcod, menorrhagia, and amenorrhea.

Certain foods like caffeine, alcohol, caffeinated tea and high salt diets increases intensity of cramps. Include 'Ca' rich foods like broccoli, low fat yoghurt, high fiber diets and omega-3 rich foods to help you during your menstrual cycle.

Working women should Try to include energy booster snacks like nuts for mid meals and plan carbohydrate rich diets with more of complex carbs in form of roasted grains and cereals bars. Keeping a check on amount of water intake is also very important. Replace caffeinated drinks with herbal infusion and buttermilk for detoxification of the body.

Ultimately we have to overcome the fatigue, lethargy and all the clinical condition by planning our meals and having a well balanced diet for a healthy body.
