Ideal south Indian diet plan for weight loss:

Ideal south Indian diet plan for weight loss:

Early morning:

Have a glass of warm water with a dash of lemon. And afterward, you can take a cup of tea but without any sugar in it. You can have 2 marie biscuits. Your total calorie intake till now will be 91.

Breakfast:

Having same breakfast daily could be quite boring. So here are 2 ideas for breakfast.

First is to have an omelet made of 2 egg whites along with 2 slices of brown bread. Total - 250 calories.

Or you can have 2 sprouts dosas with a cup of onion and tomato chutney. Total calories -220.

Mid morning snack:

It is best to have a cup of green tea and a bowl full of fresh fruits. Total - 40 calories.

Lunch:

 You can have brown rice vegetable pulao, raita of cucumber and onion and mixed veggies salad. Total calories -305.

Another option for lunch is to have sambar, lady finger veg, 3 medium sized ragi balls, and salad. 

Evening snacks:

You can either have coffee or green tea but make sure not to include sugar in it. Additionally, you should have some sprouted green gram sundal. Total - 105 calories.

Dinner:

Dinner should be a light meal. So make sure not to eat too much. You can have a veggies salad along with 1 medium bowl of thayir pachadi and millet khichadi. Total calories count - 335

Bedtime:

You can have a cup of milk and 4 soaked almonds. Total - 95 calories.

The entire diet plans given above counts for 1191 calories which are sufficient enough for a day. If you consume more calories then you will probably be gaining weight instead of losing. So try to stick with this plan.

Before you begin with the diet plan, make sure to include exercising in your routine too. It is essential to have at least 35 minutes workout daily to keep your body fit and healthy. Only eating healthy food is not sufficient to lose weight. You can include anything that you find interesting in your workout regime like walking, jogging, swimming, skating etc.

Currently 5 weeks 5 days pregnant (baby's growth showing 6 weeks 2 days). Two days back I had brown spotting and was diagnosed with choriodesidual separation of 0.01 cc. Dr. recommended hucog 5000 iu injection twice a week for 4 weeks and emergency USG on bleeding characterized by fresh blood. Last night had bleeding and got a repeat USG in emergency that showed an increase in separation to 0.02 cc but the baby had a strong heartbeat of 122 bpm. Since the diagnosis of pregnancy I have been on progesterone 400 vaginal suppositories twice a day, folic acid, thyronorm 50 MCG and complete bed rest. I have a h/o ectopic pregnancy in 2013 and cervicitis. When I found out about my pregnancy I had just completed a course of rifagut and was still taking neksium which I immediately stopped. Is it safe to take these injections as it is classified as a class x drug by CDC as it causes birth defects? And why could the baby be self aborting? On reading online I found this usually happens if there is a chromosomal defect. Please advise, very worried.

Hcg is a hormone secreated by placenta during normal course of pregnancy. This supports pregnancy so its ok to take this inj if you are having spotting. You are right one teason for miscarriage could be chtomosomal abnormality. But in more than 50% of cases wexare not able to find any reason. Continue with your treatment snd rest. Hope everything will be all right. All the best!

Hello, it is very unlikely that she will get pregnant as told by you. You should wait for another 3-4 days for withdrawal bleeding to occur due to ipill. Too much of it can disturb her cycle. In future, she should use contraceptive pills for avoiding pregnancy.

5 Reasons Why Microwaving Food is Only Killing it!

BUMS ( Mumbai ),H.E.S(pune),

5 Reasons Why Microwaving Food is Only Killing it!

One appliance that has emerged as a lifesaver in the kitchen is the microwave. This product has transformed the way we cook and have our food.

However, we fail to think about the health benefits of the food that has been microwaved!

Here are five reasons why you should NOT microwave your food!


1. Nonionising radiation: Most of us primarily use the microwave to heat up food and to defrost frozen and packaged food. The microwave carries out these processes by releasing a series of heat waves also known as nonionising radiation, which alters the very composition of your food, making it harmful or less than ideal for your system.

2. High temperatures within a short span of time: When we use the microwave to heat up or defrost or even cook something in a few seconds or minutes, the device emanates an unusually high temperature within that short span of time. The result is that the food experiences a great deal of nutrient loss.

3. Consuming a toxic meal: When you heat a pre pre-packaged meal or meat and frozen vegetables in the microwave, it mixes with the toxins released by the plastic packaging thanks to the heat waves within the microwave. This can cause harmful effects on your health in the long run, including cardiac disease and abnormal hormonal conditions.

4. Damage to the Nervous System: Food processed in the microwave can lead to a process called 'shorting out' which alters the electrical impulses in your nervous system and brain. This damage is usually permanent.

5. Cancerous cell growth: Using the microwave to process your food can lead not only to a loss of nourishment but also to an increase in cancer causing substances in food. When ingested, this food can prove to be dangerous.

'Consult'.

Benefits of Homeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Benefits of Homeopathy
There are many benefits of homeopathic medicine, including:

1. It can be used by pregnant and nursing women.

2. It can be used by children and infants.

3. It does not interfere with medications taken by a person.

4. If an incorrect remedy is selected, it is completely safe and will not harm the person at all.

5. Other than occasional, mild, and short-lived symptom aggravations which pass quickly and tend to be followed by improvements in the symptoms of a person, there are no side-effects of homeopathic remedies. This symptom aggravation is actually regarded by homeopaths as a sign that the correct homeopathic remedy has been selected and usually results in symptom improvements.

6. It can be used for chronic or acute conditions.

7. It is an individualized system of medicine which treats the person, not merely the symptoms. The symptoms, however, are addressed when using this approach and are typically improved.

8. Homeopathy is a holistic approach to healing, one that involves the body, mind, emotions, and spirit of the person being treated.

9. Homeopathic remedies are readily available and can, therefore, be used by anyone.

10. Homeopathic remedies are typically inexpensive and therefore provide an affordable approach to healing.

11. Homeopathic remedies can be stored for long periods of time.

12. Homeopathic medicine is non-invasive.

13. There are many studies proving the effectiveness of homeopathy, when used correctly.

Sometimes because of stress or many other lifestyle factors or hormonal changes, ovulation does not occur for one month and menses gets delayed or comes early. As you said you used to have regular cycles, that means you are regularly having ovulation. No need to panic and no need of any tests. Wait for another month or so, your menses will come regular. This happens because of temporary hormonal changes.

Consume Buttermilk instead of morning bed-tea

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Consume Buttermilk instead of morning bed-tea
First thing in the morning take one glass of fresh buttermilk mixed with roasted jeera (cumin) and crushed dry coriander (dhaniya) leaves along with slight salt on empty stomach instead of bed-tea. This would strengthen your intestines (gut) and boosting up your body immunity to fight various infections and may life style disorders.
Please note that the buttermilk should not be sour and very cold in temperature.

Hi, no need to take pill as it's on 5th day of period. Usually 8 to 21 days you require protection.(this is roughly considering 28-30days cycles. Not same for all).
