Are Detox Diets Good For You?

Are Detox Diets Good For You?

Given that detox diets won't rid the body of impurities or lead to real weight loss, are there any benefits of using them? The only thing one can say positively is that: 
A detox diet may encourage you to eat more nutritious foods. Some detox diets recommend nutrient-rich foods like:

  • lemons
  • green tea
  • fruit juices
  • colorful fruits and vegetables

All of these could, in part, increase your intake of certain nutrients. Some of which might help the body deal with incoming toxins or offer other health benefits.However, a three day detox diet won't move the dial on toxicity (or health) anywhere near as much as maintaining a healthy lifestyle the other 362 days of the year.

Disadvantages of detox diets: For most people, the disadvantages of a detox diet are much more numerous than the potential benefit.

Detox diets are often inconvenient: Any diet will take some effort to organize, and detox diets are no exception. Ironically, you'll probably never put as much work into eating less as you do into a detox.  People with limited time, money, and resources won't enjoy juicing seven kgs of veggies and fruits each day. Especially if they're feeling weak, listless, or dizzy, some of the most frequently reported side effects of juice cleanses.

Detox diets are often too low in energy

Most juice diets are extremely low in calories. In fact, some people argue that juicing is just a way to starve and feel good about it. With the low energy intake you'll often notice other things slowing down, you may feel colder, or sluggish, or notice digestion taking a while.

Detox diets may cause blood sugar swings that is cleansing built on fruit juices can cause major swings in blood sugar, making them downright dangerous for people with diabetes, and potentially risky for many others.

Detox diets can be tough on your GI tract: The fruit juices used for many detox diets contain very little fiber. Fiber is a cleanser. It's like a street sweeper for the GI tract; it slows down digestion and aids absorption of nutrients.

There is no credible information saying that the GI tract does better when it doesn't get solid foods (unless the GI tract is damaged). Instead, the gut does well with probiotics, glutamine from protein rich foods, and fiber. You'll struggle to get all of these on a cleanse.
Detox diets are often low in essential fats.

While some less extreme detox diets allow things like nuts and seeds, hard core cleanses typically eliminate most fat-containing foods, even healthy fats. Extreme variations in fat intake i.e. swinging from high (pre-cleanse) to low (cleanse) to high (post-cleanse celebration) to low (back on the cleanse train again) can cause trouble for organs that process dietary fats, like the gallbladder.

Detox diets may cause electrolyte imbalances: Many cleanses involve drinking a lot of liquid (such as water, herbal teas, and/or juices) while removing many foods that contain salts. Some "detox diets" also suggest using diuretic supplements. This can cause potentially dangerous imbalances in your electrolytes, charged chemicals found in fluids throughout your body. The imbalance is even more likely if overhydration is combined with low energy intake.

In fact, there's a name for this phenomenon, well known to health care providers who deal with extreme anorexia, malnutrition, or any medical condition with severely restricted food intake that is refeeding syndrome.

To keep operations running when nutrients and energy are low and electrolytes are disrupted, the body may adjust its metabolic environment (for instance, it may deplete cells of minerals to keep blood levels of those minerals stable).

Not only can this affect health during the detox diet, it can cause potentially cause serious problems when a person on a detox diet (especially a longer-lasting one) starts eating normally again.

Detox diets can create a cycle of restrictive eating and deprivation:
Detox diets, the entire concept of "cleansing", in fact can enable feast-or-famine style eating patterns:

  • The detox diet starts tomorrow, so I'll eat a bunch of "toxic" foods tonight.
  • On the detox diet now. Not allowed any stuff I enjoy.
  • The detox diet ends tomorrow, so I'll get set to eat all those "toxic" foods I missed! And so on.

Recognize that thought pattern? It's the classic dieter mentality. On the wagon, off the wagon, on the wagon, off the wagon. It's always more harmful than helpful. When you think and eat this way:

  • You never learn to find the sane middle ground.
  • You never learn to prepare real food and real meals that are both nutritious and delicious.
  • You're always in "all-or-nothing" mode. (Usually getting "nothing", because "all" is really, really hard.)

Worst of all is you never feel truly happy with any of your choices.
Fortunately, the body "cleanses" itself, if we can't ever avoid toxins, doesn't it then make sense to do some sort of detox? Not really. That's because our bodies have very robust detoxification systems. Our major organs of detoxification include are:

  • Digestive tract;
  • Kidneys;
  • Skin;
  • Lungs;
  • Liver,
  • Lymphatic system;
  • Respiratory system;

These systems break down chemicals (toxic or otherwise) into other form, which we can eliminate via the toilet, sweat, or breathing. And the body seems to do a pretty good job of this when placed in a balanced (i.e. healthy) environment.

Take Home Message:
The idea that you can speed up and improve your body's detox pathways by drinking detox water is nonsense. That said, it is still a healthy drink with a few health benefits. Nevertheless, you could probably get most of these benefits from drinking regular water. However, people often find plain water boring. If infusing your water with fruits and vegetables means that you drink more water and less sugary drinks, then it can only be a good thing.

She is suffering from irregular period.
So what does she do to make this cycle regular.
Dear, For making regular your periods these are some instructions given below: • Take proper diet full of nutrition. Eat green leafy vegetables and seasonal fruits and a glass of milk daily. Eat a fruit daily. • Do Not take stress because stress causes imbalance in hormones of female and make your menstrual cycle disturb and make your ovulation disturb. Do some meditation for maintain hormonal balance. • Do jogging and running exercise daily. Start these exercise for 3 to 4 minutes daily then increase time slowly. If you are obese loose some weight this is also a cause of irregular periods. • Do skipping regularly for 2 to 3 minutes daily.

Chicken VS Egg- Which has more protein?

Bachelors Of Physiotherapy, Diploma in Nutrition and Health Education
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Gurgaon
Chicken VS Egg- Which has more protein?

Protein comes in ample amount from foods such as meat, eggs, legumes, dairy products, soy, and fish. It serves as the building blocks for the body's cells, muscles, skin, tissue, and organs.
Although, both chicken and egg are infused with high amounts of protein, they do vary on the grounds of the actual protein content per serving. So which is a better source of protein?

Nutritional facts of 100g chicken

Protein: 27g
Fats: 4g
Calories: 153
Sodium: 51mg
Cholesterol: 75mg

Nutritional facts of 100g eggs

Protein: 13g
Fats: 11g
Calories: 155
Sodium: 124mg
Cholesterol: 373mg

Both chicken and eggs are a low calorie and high protein option. However, chicken contains double the amount of protein than eggs per serving, emerging as a clear winner. Not only that, chicken also contains less cholesterol in comparison to eggs, making it a much healthier food choice.

Nevertheless, eggs possess a number of other health benefits, and should not be ruled out of your daily diet.

1. Eggs contain riboflavin or Vitamin B2 in abundance, which helps in improving your metabolism
2. Egg whites are a rich source of Vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron, and copper, all of which are essential for the proper functioning of your body
Even though both chicken and eggs are almost equally healthy, the key to proper health is to eat all you want but in a moderate manner.

Watery discharge during pregnancy can be due to many different reasons. You will have to know the underlying cause to determine if what's coming out of your vagina is normal or not. 1. Leukorrhea. Leucorrhea, the surge in the levels of estrogen, may increase the blood flow towards your vagina, which may cause vaginal discharge during the early stages of pregnancy. The discharge is usually thin and white in color. 2. Urine. Leaking urine is quite normal during pregnancy, especially when you sneeze, cough or have a good belly laugh. The smell and color will also confirm the discharge is urine. 3. Mucus Plug Your cervix will become thin and dilate during pregnancy, which may lead to the expulsion of the mucus plug. The plug fills the cervical canal and is made of mucus. It prevents any passage of bacteria to your baby. The plug comes off in the later stages of pregnancy, usually when you're ready to give birth. 4. Amniotic Fluid Your discharge may be the amniotic fluid that comprises of dead skin cells, cervical and vaginal secretions, and vaginal bacteria. If you notice sudden gush of fluids after the end of your third trimester, this could be the amniotic fluid discharge. 5. Preterm Labor If you're witnessing a brownish- or red-colored watery discharge before you complete 37 weeks, it could be a sign of preterm labor. Go see your doctor immediately for proper diagnosis. 6. Yeast Infection If you experience symptoms such as vaginal itchiness, swollen vulva, burning sensation and greening-yellow discharge, this may indicate a yeast infection. You have to consult your doctor because it is not easy to control a yeast infection during pregnancy and it could be quite uncomfortable, too. 7. Bacterial Vaginosis You may develop bacterial vaginosis due to an imbalance in the vaginal bacteria. The most common symptoms are yellowish or grayish-white watery discharge with a strong "fishy" smell. It is important to treat it on time or else it may lead to preterm delivery, miscarriage, or post pregnancy uterine infection. 8. Sexually Transmitted Disease If you're experiencing watery discharge that changes color from white to gray, yellow or green, this could be due to a vaginal infection or sexually transmitted disease. SO YOU HAVE CONSULT YOUR GP FOR YOUR PROBLEM.

Bad Effects Of Tea

चाय पीने के दुष्प्रभाव* ☕

दो सौ वर्ष पहले भारतीय घर में चाय नहीं होती थी, लेकिन आज कोई भी घर आये अतिथि को पहले चाय पूछता है। ये बदलाव अंग्रेजों की देन है। कई लोग ऑफिस में दिन भर चाय लेते रहते है, यहाँ तक की उपवास में भी चाय लेते है । किसी भी डॉक्टर के पास जायेंगे तो वो शराब - सिगरेट - तम्बाखू छोड़ने को कहेगा, पर चाय नहीं,
क्योंकि यह उसे पढ़ाया नहीं गया और वह भी खुद इसका गुलाम है. *परन्तु किसी अच्छे वैद्य के पास जाओगे तो वह पहले सलाह देगा चाय ना पियें।*

चाय की हरी पत्ती पानी में उबाल कर पीने में कोई बुराई नहीं परन्तु जहां यह फर्मेंट हो कर काली हुई सारी बुराइयां उसमे आ जाती है।

हमारे गर्म देश में चाय और गर्मी बढ़ाती है, पित्त बढ़ाती है। चाय के सेवन करने से शरीर में उपलब्ध
विटामिन्स नष्ट होते हैं। इसके सेवन से स्मरण शक्ति में दुर्बलता आती है। 

1. चाय का सेवन रक्त आदि की वास्तविक उष्मा को नष्ट करने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है।

२. दूध से बनी चाय का सेवन आमाशय पर बुरा प्रभाव डालता है और पाचन क्रिया को क्षति पहुंचाता है।

 ३. चाय में उपलब्ध कैफीन हृदय पर बुरा प्रभाव डालती है, अत: चाय का अधिक सेवन प्राय: हृदय के रोग को उत्पन्न करने में सहायक होता है। 

 ४. चाय में कैफीन तत्व छ: प्रतिशत मात्रा में होता है जो रक्त को दूषित करने के साथ शरीर के अवयवों को कमजोर भी करता है।

५. चाय पीने से खून गन्दा हो जाता है और चेहरे पर लाल फुंसियां निकल आती है।

६. जो लोग चाय बहुत पीते है उनकी आंतें जवाब दे जाती है. कब्ज घर कर जाती है और मल निष्कासन में कठिनाई आती है।

७. चाय पीने से कैंसर तक होने
की संभावना भी रहती है।

८. चाय से स्नायविक गड़बडियां होती हैं, कमजोरी और पेट में गैस भी।

९. चाय पीने से अनिद्रा की शिकायत भी बढ़ती जाती है।

१०. चाय से न्यूरोलाजिकल गड़बड़ियां आ जाती है।

 ११. चाय में उपलब्ध यूरिक एसिड से मूत्राशय या मूत्र नलिकायें निर्बल
हो जाती हैं, जिसके परिणाम स्वरूप चाय का सेवन करने वाले
व्यक्ति को बार-बार मूत्र आने की समस्या उत्पन्न हो जाती है।

१२. इससे दांत खराब होते है. - रेलवे स्टेशनों या टी स्टालों पर बिकने वाली चाय का सेवन यदि न करें तो बेहतर होगा क्योंकि ये बरतन को साफ किये बिना कई बार इसी में चाय बनाते रहते हैं जिस कारण कई बार चाय विषैली हो जाती है। चाय को कभी भी दोबारा गर्म करके न पिएं तो बेहतर होगा।

१३. बाज़ार की चाय अक्सर अल्युमीनियम के भगोने में
खदका कर बनाई जाती है। चाय के अलावा यह अल्युमीनियम भी घुल कर पेट की प्रणाली को बर्बाद करने में कम भूमिका नहीं निभाता है।

१४. कई बार हम लोग बची हुई चाय को थरमस में डालकर रख देते हैं इसलिए भूलकर भी ज्यादा देर तक थरमस में रखी चाय का सेवन न करें। जितना हो सके चायपत्ती को कम उबालें तथा एक बार चाय बन जाने पर इस्तेमाल की गई चायपत्ती को फेंक दें। 

१५. शरीर में आयरन अवशोषित ना हो पाने से एनीमिया हो जाता है. - इसमें मौजूद कैफीन लत लगा देता है. लत हमेशा बुरी ही होती है. 

१६. ज़्यादा चाय पिने से खुश्की आ जाती है.आंतों के स्नायु भी कठोर बन जाते हैं।

१७. चाय के हर कप के साथ एक या अधिक चम्मच शक्कर ली जाती है जो वजन बढाती है।

१८. अक्सर लोग चाय के साथ नमकीन, खारे बिस्कुट,पकौड़ी आदि लेते है. यह विरुद्ध आहार है. इससे त्वचा रोग होते है.।

१९. चाय से भूख मर जाती है, दिमाग सूखने लगता है, गुदा और वीर्याशय ढीले पड़ जाते हैं। डायबिटीज़ जैसे रोग होते हैं। दिमाग सूखने से उड़ जाने वाली नींद के कारण आभासित कृत्रिम स्फूर्ति को स्फूर्ति मान लेना, यह बड़ी गलती है। 

२०. चाय-कॉफी के विनाशकारी व्यसन में फँसे हुए लोग स्फूर्ति का बहाना बनाकर हारे हुए जुआरी की तरह व्यसन में अधिकाधिक गहरे डूबते जाते हैं। वे लोग शरीर, मन, दिमाग और पसीने की कमाई को व्यर्थ गँवा देते हैं और भयंकर व्याधियों के शिकार बन जाते हैं।

21. चाय का सेवन लिवर पर बुरा प्रभाव डालता है।
