Notice the strange smell wafting in your kitchen? It's not your food... it is your refrigerator! Fridge is often one of the last places on our home cleaning list. We like to keep things in our kitchen shining and spotless but the inside of the fridge is a different story all together. The entire contents have to be emptied and at least half a day has to be dedicated to scrubbing and cleaning all the hidden corners, needless to say putting everything back and planning your day around the activity. As boring as it may seem, it is an important chore that you need to undertake at least once a month. Why? Because other than food, your fridge may be hosting some unwanted guests that may cause a lot of health problems for your family. Have a look:
1. Find out who hitched a ride into your fridge: Certain foods, like vegetables, chicken and meat which are not kept in a healthy environment when being sold can harbour some harmful bacteria. These will travel with your food into your fridge and even sometimes cause cross contamination. So give a good thought to what you are putting into your fridge to take your first step towards a healthy life.
2. Find the long lost items: We often put canned foods in the fridge to use for a later day. A lot of these items come with months of shelf life before the expiry date. But sometimes they get pushed back a little too much and we fail to notice that they may have passed their expiry date before use. We often tend to take a 'sniff' and 'taste' test for such items and if they seem fine, we use them anyway. When an item crosses its expiry date, be sure to throw it out. If it doesn't then use your best judgment. When in doubt, throw it out. It may be an on-off case to cause a harmful reaction.
3. Different foods different shelves: Your fridge is designed to hold different foods on different shelves. Raw meat and leftovers go on the bottom shelf, fruits and vegetables on top and cheese and canned items in the center. This allows them to stay closest to the temperature optimum for them.
4. Covert your fridge into your diet ally: Mid night cravings for ice cream, cakes, and other comfort foods can wreck havoc on your diet and health. Start by cleaning out your fridge and let go of the things that can get you into health trouble. Re-stock your fridge with healthy items stored in an attractive manner. Cut carrot sticks, bright fruits, and healthy green salads all stored in snack-able portions will eventually make you reach out for them over other foods.
5. Get your basics right: Your fridge should be under 40 F or 4 degrees. Give it a thorough cleaning every month with baking soda.

Health benefits of Ragi:
Maintains bone health:
Ragi is the richest source of calcium among plant foods. Calcium along with vitamin d help strengthen bones. It is an excellent source of natural calcium for children and aging people. It helps in the development of bones in growing children and in the maintenance of bone health in adults. Thus, ragi helps keep bone problems at bay and could reduce the risk of fractures as well.
Aids weight loss:
Ragi contains an amino acid, tryptophan which reduces appetite. It has a much higher amount of dietary fiber compared to white rice and other grains. It is also a low-fat cereal and most of the fats are in the unsaturated form. This makes it the best choice in grains for people trying to lose weight. The bulkiness of the fibers and the slower digestion rate makes one feel fuller on fewer calories and therefore helps prevent excess caloric consumption.
Lowers high cholesterol levels:
Ragi contains amino acids lecithin and methionine which help bring down cholesterol levels by eliminating excess fat from the liver. Finger millet also contains the amino acid threonine which hinders fat formation in the liver and helps bring down the cholesterol levels. The high fiber content of ragi also helps manage cholesterol problems.
Help in anemia:
Ragi is an excellent plant source of natural iron. Its consumption helps in anemia. Vitamin c increases iron absorption. Sprouted ragi develops vitamin c in the process of sprouting, therefore, the iron in ragi becomes more bioavailable when consumed as sprouted ragi flour or ragi malt.
Reduces diabetes risk:
Due to the high polyphenol and dietary fiber content in finger millet, regular consumption is known to reduce the risk of diabetes mellitus and gastrointestinal tract disorders. According to a research finger millet based diets help diabetics as they contain higher amounts of fiber over other cereals and millets. Diets based on whole finger millet have a lower glycemic response i. E. Lower ability to increase blood sugar level. This has been attributed to the presence of certain factors in ragi flour which lower digestibility and absorption of starch.
Ragi - best food for diabetic
Helps in relaxation: one amazing benefit of ragi is that it helps in relaxing the body naturally. It is found to be beneficial in conditions of anxiety, depression, migraine and insomnia.
Source of essential amino acids:
Ragi is rich in amino acids vital for the body. Finger millet contains amino acids namely tryptophan, threonine, valine, isoleucine, and methionoine. Isoleucine helps in muscle repair, blood formation, bone formation and improves skin health. Valine is an essential amino acid which facilitates metabolism and repair of body tissues. Another essential amino acid, not found in most cereals, is methionine. It is found in ragi and therefore makes it a complete protein food, unlike other cereals and millets. The amino acid methionine is useful in various body processes, helps in eliminating fat from the body, and is the main provider of sulfur in the body. Sulfur is essential for the production of glutathione which is the body's natural and most important antioxidant.
Ragi food preparations
Finger millet is normally consumed in the form of flour-based foods such as roti (unleavened pancake), mudde (stiff porridge/dumpling) and ambli (thin porridge). Ragi can be used to make porridge, upma, cakes, and biscuits. Ragi flour is used to make various Indian preparations like dosas, idlis, and ladoos.
'puttu' is a traditional breakfast of Kerala, usually made with rice powder together with coconut and steamed in a cylindrical steamer. The same preparation is also made with ragi powder, which makes it more nutritious
Multigrain flour preparation by combining wheat and finger millet in the ratio of 7: 3 (wheat: finger millet) is one of the simplest ways of incorporating ragi in the daily diet as no Indian meal is complete without the Indian style bread or roti. In the proposed blend, though the gluten content is reduced significantly, the making of chapatti is not much affected. However, the color turns a little dark. Fortification of finger millet in chapattis is very helpful in controlling glucose levels in diabetic patients efficiently.
Malted ragi grains are ground and consumed, mixed with milk, boiled water or yogurt. In southern parts of India, it is the recommended food, by doctors, for infants of six months and above because of its high nutritional content. Homemade ragi malt is one of the most popular infant foods till date.
Delicious ragi malt
Malting characteristics of finger millet are superior to other millets. On malting, the vitamin cis elaborated, phosphorus availability is increased, digestion is easier and amino acids are synthesized. In south India, the malted ragi flour is extensively used in the preparation of weaning foods, instant mixes and beverages.
It’s frustrating to see that though there is little change in diet, weight gain becomes normal as we get older. ‘Tyres’ around the tummy and heavy hips are often seen as a sign of being middle aged. There are many reasons for this change in the rate of weight gain. Some of them are:
Lower metabolic rate: As children and teenagers, the body is constantly growing and changing and hence has a high metabolic rate. Metabolic rate refers to the speed with which fat is burned to produce energy. After the age of 30, this metabolic rate naturally slows down and fewer calories are burned. This leads to the accumulation of fat. The only way to boost your metabolic rate and burn fat is by exercising.
Less muscle mass: With age, the muscles in the body also begin to shrink. Thus, instead of forming muscle, fat cells are formed as a result of digestion. When comparing muscles and fat cells, the former burn more calories and hence when they are unavailable, the rate of burning calories is lowered leading to weight gain.
Weight gain in menopause: When it comes to women, menopause is another trigger for weight gain. This is because, this condition is marked by hormonal imbalances. This leads to a sudden drop in estrogen levels that triggers a response in the body to draw out more estrogen from the fat cells. Ultimately, this leads to the formation of more fat. Men too can suffer from hormonal imbalances as they age. This is seen by a drop in testosterone levels that leads to abdominal weight gain.
Sedentary lifestyle: As we get older, our lifestyle turns more sedentary. A sedentary lifestyle is very unhealthy and leads to not only weight gain, but a number of other problems as well. Without regular exercise, the body’s existing metabolic rate further reduces leading to accumulation of fat cells. To combat this, take half an hour out of your schedule every day to go for a walk, cycle or practice any form of exercise.
Stress: Stress not only affects your psychological health, but your physical well-being as well. Being under pressure or anxious can increase the cortisol levels in the body. This creates hunger pangs that lead to unhealthy snacking. When eating in a stressful condition, little or no attention is paid to the food being eaten or the messages your body is trying to give you. This often results in overeating that causes weight gain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
कई बार गोरापन, सुंदरता धरी की धरी रह जाती है, जब चेहरे पर मोटापा बढ़ जाता है। थुल-थुल चेहरा न सिर्फ आपको अंकफर्टेबल कर देता है बल्कि, चेहरे पर जमा मोटापा आपको उम्रदराज भी दिखाता है।
हालांकि चेहरे पर जमा चर्बी से कोई शारीरिक तकलीफ नहीं होती पर जब आप पर लोग अट्रैक्ट नहीं हों मोटा चेहरा होने की वजह से तब मन को जरूर तकलीफ होती है।
मार्केट में चेहरे की इस समस्या का इलाज है पर वह जोखिम भरा और खर्चीला होता होता है जो हर किसी के बस का नहीं। चेहरे पर चर्बी जमा होने के कई कारण हो सकते हैं, जैसे वसा युक्त भोजन ज़्यादा खाना, पानी कम पीना और लगातार शरीर का वज़न बढ़ना। गालों पर फ़ैट को कम करने के लिए ज़रूरी है कि आप वज़न कम करें। या चिंता करें बस आप बताए गए कुछ नुस्खो को अपनाएं और स्लिम फेस के साथ इतराएं। तो आइए जानते हैं उन नायाब तरीकों के बारे में।
1. फेशियल मसाज करें
आपकी गर्दन के ऊपर और ठोड़ी के नीचे बहुत आसानी से फैट बढ़ जाता हैं। त्वचा को कसने के लिए फेशियल मसाज एक बेहतर ऑप्शन हैं। मसाज की शुरुआत ठोड़ी की त्वचा को कानो तक लेकर जाए, इसे 5 मिनट तक दिन में दो बार करें। ऐसा करने से रक्त संचार बेहतर होगा और आपकी त्वचा कस जाएगी।
2. च्विंगम चबाएं
राह चलते कई बार हम च्विंगम चबाते देखते हैं। पर यह फाल्तू नहीं बड़े काम का नुस्खा है स्लिम फेस पाने के लिए। ऐसा करने से आपकी चीकबोन्स कम होती हैं। लेकिन इस बात का ध्यान रखें कि च्वींगम में शुगर कम हो ताकि आप कैवेटी का शिकार ना हो।
3. ब्रेकफास्ट में कैल्सियम वाले डाइट लें
सुबह का नाश्ता जमकर किया जाए तो मेटाबलिज़्म तेज़ हो जाता है। बहुत से लोग डायटिंग करने के नाम खाना पीना छोड़ देते हैं, जिससे मेटाबलिज़्म धीमा हो जाता है और बॉडी में चर्बी जमा होने की रफ़्तार बढ़ जाती है। जिससे चेहरा और पेट ज्यादा प्रभावित होता है।
कैल्शियम युक्त आहार खाने से शरीर से अतिरिक्त पानी कम होता है और चर्बी भी कटती है। दूध, दही, दालें, हरी सब्ज़ियां और सी फ़ूड में पर्याप्त कैल्शियम होता है। जिसे लेने ये स्लिम फेस पाने में मदद मिलेगा।
4. नमक कम खाएं
हर व्यक्ति के शरीर की नमक की आदर्श मात्रा 3.8 मिलीग्राम हैं। ज्यादा नमक का सेवन करने से शरीर में सूजन और निर्जलन जैसी समस्या हो जाती हैं। दरअसल हमारे गुर्दे प्राकृतिक फिल्टर के रूप में कार्य करते हैं और मूत्र पथ के माध्यम से हमारे शरीर का अतिरिक्त खनिज और तरल पदार्थ बाहर निकाल देता हैं। ज्यादा नमक का सेवन करने से आपकी रक्त वाहिकाओं पर असर पड़ता है जिसकी वजह से हमारे चेहरे पर सूजन होती हैं।
5. पानी खूब पिएं
ज़्यादा पानी पीना भी चेहरे को पतला करने का तरीका है। पानी शरीर में इलेक्ट्रोलाइट्स को बैलेंस करके डिहाइड्रेशन से बचाता है। ज्यादा पानी पीने से विषैले त्तव यानि टॉक्सिंस बाहर निकल जाते हैं। साथ ही साथ पानी पीने से वज़न कम करने में भी मदद मिलती है और चेहरा पतला होने लगता है।
6. भरपूर नींद लें
पूरी नींद न लेने से हार्मोन असंतुलित हो जाते हैं, जिससे वज़न बढ़ने लगता है। जिससे चेहरे पर भी चर्बी आ जाती है, इसलिए अच्छी नींद ज़रूर लें।
7. फेशियल योगा करें
हम सब योगा से होने वाले स्वास्थ लाभ से वाकिफ हैं, लेकिन क्या आप जानते हैं कि योगा चेहरे की चर्बी को कम करने में भी मददगार हैं। योगा को रुटीन में लाने से आपको चेहरे में बदलाव दिखेगा।शुरु करते है सबसे आसान तरीके से, सबसे पहले अपनी गर्दन को पिछे की तरफ झुका ले औऱ उसके बाद छत की तरफ देखें, अब अपने होंठो की मदद से ‘ओ’ का आकार बनाएं, और इस व्यायाम को दोहराएँ कम से कम 10 बार धीरे धीरे आप इस प्रकिया में इजाफा भी कर सकते है सुंदर ‘जॉ लाइन’ पाने के लिए पहले सीधा बैंठे उसके बाद अपने सिर को पिछे की तरफ मोड़े, अब अपनी जीभ को बाहर निका लें इस अवस्था में करीब 10 मिनट तक बैठें रहें, और इस प्रकिया को कम से कम 5 बार जरुर करें। चिकबनोस्क को सुंदर बनाने के लिए एक और व्यायाम करें, अपने चेहरे को मछली के आकार का बना लें उसके बाद चेहरे को सिकोड़ लें मछली के आकार के रुप में इसे करीब 10 मिनट तक ऐसे ही रहने दें और इसे 5 बार जरुर करें। ये व्यायाम करने में काफी आसान है, आप इसे बड़ी आसानी के साथ कर सकते है, सोचिए की आपने मुंह में पानी ले रखा है और उसी आकार में अपने चहरे को थोड़ी देर के लिए छोड़ दें, इस दौरान ध्यान रहे आपके होंठ जोर से दबे होने चाहिए, इस व्यायाम को 30 सेकेंड ही करें लेकिन दिन में 2 बार जरुर दोहराएं यह व्यायाम आपके होंठ, ठोड़ी और गाल हड्डियों के लिए बेहद फायदेमंद होता है।

Making love brings an intimacy between the couple that connects them in all ways, not just physical. Couples who do not have a great love life usually do not have a very fulfilling relationship. Though not openly admitted to, sexual problems are very common. Given the private nature of the issue, not many frankly talk about it though. However, sexual problems are quite common and can be attributed to a combination of physical and emotional reasons.
Sexual problems can be threatening to the health of the relationship and can break relationships too. Read on to know some of the most common sexual problems in men and women and simple but sure ways to deal with them.
Common Sexual Problems in Men
Impotence: This is defined as the inability to attain and/or sustain an erection long enough for a satisfying intercourse. Quite a common problem, it can be due to relationship issues, hormonal problems, or performance anxiety. A frank talk with the partner and if required a counseling session can help identify the cause, and the problem seems to disappear.
Loss of Libido: This is a loss of arousal or reduced sex drive. This again has a strong physical and psychological component to it. Hypertension, diabetes, stress, hormonal issues, performance anxiety, and relationship issues are some of the reasons for loss of drive.
Ejaculation Disorders: Premature ejaculation is the early release of sperm. Retrograde ejaculation is when the sperms are released in the reverse direction back into the bladder. Delayed ejaculation is where there is delayed the release of sperms. There is often an underlying physical reason for this, which if corrected, helps in correcting the issue.
Treatment: For most sexual problems, acknowledging is the first step towards effective treatment. There are medications and hormonal supplements which are quite effective. Sex education, frank communication with the partner, and if required counselling is quite effective. Other therapies include hormone replacements, vacuum devices and penile implants.
Common Sexual Problems In Women:
Decreased Libido: Reduced sexual drive is more common in women than men. This could be due to hormonal issues (menopausal), strained relationships, vaginal and gynecologic infections, pelvic pain, painful sex, uterine disorders, etc.
Dyspareunia: Painful sexual intercourse is very common in females, and as much as 75% of women have experienced this during their sex life. Very commonly caused by vaginal dryness, vaginal infections, uterine disorders, UTIs and menopause. This again contributes to reduced libido. Lubricants, topical antibiotics and hormonal supplements can be used in addition to treating the underlying condition.
Treatment: For most sexual problems, as noted already, acknowledging and admitting is the first step. Treatment involves addressing underlying physical issues like hormonal imbalance, antibiotics, topical lubricants, etc. Counselling and involving the partner are most effective.
