Paneer Vs Tofu - Find Out Which is Better For Your Body?

Paneer and Tofu - the similar looking foods come with their own sets of nutrients, along with being extremely beneficial at warding off diseases. In terms of preparation, while paneer is made from curdled buffalo milk, tofu is prepared from soy milk.

Here's a nutrient guide to help you pick one over the other.

1. Iron content
When it comes to the iron content of these two foods, tofu comes out as the winner. Tofu contains 5.4mg of iron per 100gm, while paneer's iron content is just 0.1mg per 100gm. For this reason, the soy product is extremely beneficial for individuals who suffer from anaemia as it is high in iron content and can help in maintaining optimum levels of blood haemoglobin.

2. Protein content
Especially for vegetarians, paneer is one of the best sources of protein. Every 100 gm of this dairy product is found to contain 18.3 gm of protein. In contrast, tofu offers only 6.9 gm of protein. If you are planning to put on weight or pursue a muscle building regimen, paneer is a source of protein that you can consider. It aids in muscle building as well as reduces muscle damage caused by wear and tear.

3. Fat content
Along with high protein content, paneer is also known to come with a high fat content. Every 100gm of paneer contains about 20.8gm of fat content. Tofu, on the other hand, contains only 2.7gm of fat every 100gm. Due to its low fat content, tofu is an excellent health option for weight loss.

4. The 3 Cs: carbohydrate, calcium and calorie content
In terms of carbohydrate, calcium and calorie content, both tofu and paneer clock different figures.
Even though paneer is made from milk, its levels of carbohydrate are low. Since the carbohydrate content in paneer is about 1.2gm, it is a friendly food option for diabetics. Tofu, on the other hand, has a carbohydrate content that is double to that of paneer (2.4gm).

Calcium content is extremely high in paneer with every 100gm of paneer offering 208mg of calcium. Due to its high calcium count, paneer is extremely useful to build strong teeth and bones. In contrast to the high calcium content of paneer, tofu records about 130mg of calcium.

Lastly, both tofu and paneer have different calorie counts with paneer reporting a higher calorie count than tofu. For every 100gm of serving of tofu and paneer, tofu has 62 calories and paneer comes with 265 calories. Since it has a low calorie count, tofu is the perfect weight loss food.
In terms of which one is a healthier food option, it depends on certain factors. If you are planning to lose weight, tofu is a better option.

But if you're planning to build muscles, paneer presents itself as a better option. This is because paneer contains high calcium and protein content. Keeping the pros and cons in mind, you can choose to include either one or both in your diet. Although when it comes to paneer, moderation is the key.

Hello,
During menstruation, women can get more stressed out and suffer from uncomfortable symptoms such as fatigue, mood swings, breast tenderness, bloating, cramps, headache, food cravings and constipation or diarrhea.
By eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong foods can help reduce stress and lethargic and stay bright and breezy.
Avoiding certain foods during your period may help discomfort.-----
Beverages: restrict consumption of beverages such as coffee, tea and soft drinks which worsen symptoms like anxiety, depression and breast tenderness. Instead have herbal tea and plenty of water to keep body hydrated.
Salt: controlling salt consumption can help you avoid bloating and the puffy, heavy feeling that comes with it.
High-fat foods: hormone changes during the menstrual cycle shows symptoms such as bloating and breast tenderness. Avoid foods such as whole-milk dairy products, sausages, burgers, cheese.
Sugary foods: due to hormonal changes during menstruation, blood sugar levels become unstable, and many women crave sweets. Eating foods high in sugar adds to your blood sugar fluctuations resulting in mood swings, tension, lethargic, immune system imbalance and fatigue.
Recommended foods during periods:-----
Beans: the high fiber content in beans helps reduce congestion, cramps, constipation and diarrhea.
Vegetables: green vegetables are rich in calcium, magnesium and potassium and thus help prevent menstrual pains, excessive bleeding and clot the blood.
Water: water retention is one of the main causes for cramps. To reduce water retention, drink enough water.
Whole grains: eating small amounts of carbohydrates every three hours and before bed can help combat premenstrual syndrome and also reduces neuromuscular tension, fatigue and depression.
Yogurt: yogurt contains live cultures and active bacteria which promote healthy digestion and also a good source of calcium.
Take care.

Are You Chewing Your Food Enough? + 4 Reasons Why You Must!

How to identify you're not chewing your food enough?

Are you always in hurry while eating or multitask while chewing your food? then it is highly probable that you don?t chew your food enough. A recent survey revealed that on an average people chew their food only 6 six times before swallowing, which is far less than enough. Chewing food for an adequate amount of time is necessary for a healthy digestive system and can help you avoid lots of health problems.

Here?s why you should chew your food properly.

So what happens to your body when you don?t chew your food enough?

Mastication is the name given to the process of chewing food. Mastication, if not done properly, can lead to various health problems like-

1. Incomplete digestion: digestion starts in the mouth itself and chewing has a significant role in it. The salivary glands are stimulated to release an alkaline enzyme, called ptyalin, by chewing. This enzyme combines with carbohydrates to initiate the process of the conversion of food into simpler sugars by splitting. Not chewing food properly may be a causative agent for digestive problems like gas, bloating, and diarrhoea to name a few.

2. Increased threat of bacterial overgrowth: if food is not chewed properly it cannot be completely broken down by the digestive system. The partially digested portion of food may result in increased amount of bacteria in the colon, leading to stomach infections.

3. Bad oral health: if you don?t chew food enough, plaque build-up in your mouth may increase, which can further lead to tooth decay. This is because improper chewing means lesser amount of saliva secretion, and more chances of accumulation of unbroken food particles in the mouth, causing cavity.

4. Lesser nutrient absorption: when you don?t chew your food properly, larger food particles don?t break into smaller ones. This makes absorption of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients difficult for your body when they pass through the intestines.

Indications that you don?t chew your food properly

If you don?t chew food for an adequate amount of time, your body begins to give warning signs. This can affect your health significantly, and the following symptoms show if you don?t do it properly.

1. Frequent digestive problems: if you are frequently experiencing digestive problems like acid reflux, constipation or heartburn then there are good chances that the problem is inadequate chewing of food.

2. Weight gain: one of the reasons behind weight gain may be consuming too many calories without realising. This can happen when you eat fast, which indicates that you don?t crush and grind your food properly inside your mouth.

3. Recurrent mood swings: researchers are of the opinion that improper chewing of food gives rise to digestive problems, which in turn may often ruin your mood.

How many times should you chew each bite?

Researchers of ohio state university are of the opinion that you should chew each mouthful of food for a minimum of 30 times. However, they mentioned that chewing softer food like potatoes for 5 to 10 times is enough.

However by a combination of medicines and healthy diet and exercise to optimise your BMI most of your problems related to irregular periods / acne/ hirsutism /hair fall etc can be normalised.

Yes it is possible. Pregnancy and kicking on stomach are 2 different entities. You were suffering from pcod and you got cured by hormones and that has enhanced your chances of getting pregnant. But your husband will be hopefully more kind now that there us a good news.

Dhat Syndrome - An Overview

Graduate in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery ( GAMS )
Sexologist
Ask Free Question
Cultures all across the world have their typical ways of dealing with sexuality and while all cultures bring something good, they also have their bad quirks as well. While india gave the world kama sutra, it also perpetuates sexual conditions such as the dhat syndrome due to certain long held beliefs. These cause many problems among men and women and in the context of modern medicine, should be treated as a psychological problem.

What is dhat syndrome?
Dhat syndrome is the fear that a man is losing his semen without any control over it. Men afflicted by dhat syndrome often complain that they are losing semen involuntarily, and thus feeling fatigued all the time. Some of the other complaints and symptoms associated with dhat syndrome can be categorized as follows:

Suffering from premature ejaculation
Impotence or erectile dysfunction bought on by a psychological fear of losing semen
Fear that the person is losing semen through urine
Person feels guilty or embarrassed about masturbation or sex
Has anxiety disorders which can affect daily functioning
The causes for dhat syndrome-

This is a psychological issue caused primarily by social taboos and deeply ingrained beliefs which stem from religious doctrine or social stigma. For example, semen is considered to be a vital fluid and an integral part of life force. The belief is formed from an old hindu spiritual belief that semen is very hard for the body to produce. This is ingrained into some boys who then feel guilty at accidental discharges such as nightfall or ejaculation through masturbation.

Diagnosis by doctors-
Most doctors classify this as a psychological disorder as there are many other forms with slight variations of this present in many other cultures. Some examples of these are:

Jiryan primarily in south east asia
Shen-k'uei in china
Prameha in srilanka
This is also commonly known as semen loss anxiety and is seen in certain western cultures too. The notion that holding onto semen is valuable for a man's vitality is not only a wrong notion but it stops the men from having a normal sex life. Even masturbation can make them feel guilty.

Treatment-
The only treatment options that are effective against this condition are cognitive behavioral therapies which use psychological intervention along with social exercises. This and being informed about your body from proper medical sources will help you release the inhibitions and lead a normal sex life.

Less weight does not cause a problem with infertility, unless it is due to illness like tb etc. For 4'11" your weight of 45 is ok. It can be increased by few kg, but less than 50 is best for your height. So do not worry about your weight. At the same time you must worry about your husband's weight which is 112, and he needs to severely start nutrition based dieting and exercises. Your abortion happened and it is just 2 months since then, wait for another 1-2 months and then try again. The back pain, if occasional can be dealth with pain killers, but if it frequent, you may see a orthopedic surgeon. For your infertility seek the help of a gynecologist who can guide you through the conception and then the pregnancy monitoring too.
