I want to gain weight but without supplements? What diet should I take tell me? What should I do?
Whole-wheat breads are well-off in fiber and help you feel fuller for long. It also gives you sustained oomph which keeps your diet on track. For putting on pounds, spread some peanut butter or honey on whole wheat breads to add calories. Moreover, nutritionists also say that eating healthy bread is a great way to start weight gain. On the other hand, white bread lacks the essential minerals and is not healthy for your body.

No need to carry any doubts, Premature babies are handed to parents only when they become near normal weight after fed in a nursery with top feeds, after that the milestones and weight gain is @ normal kids born with weight 2-3 kg at birth.

Concentrate on fat loss and not on weight loss

Certified Diabetes Educator , Sports Nutritionist, Registered Clinical Dietician
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Concentrate on fat loss and not on weight loss.

Weight can be lost by losing muscle mass also, which is so very difficult to gain back without much exercise and adequate protein diet.

muscle mass is like stones and fat is like cotton. so when you lose muscle, you would see an appreciable dip on the weighing scale.

wherein when you lose fat, you don't see much reduction on the weighing scale, but will see an appreciable reduction in inch measurements

It is up to you to decide whether you want to lose fat or lose muscle mass (wherein you would have to keep going back to the doctor, again again with weak bones and the consequent results)

so, do not follow crash diets which will result in speedy weight loss.

always follow advice of your competently qualified Registered Dietician to modify lifestyle to achieve and maintain consistent results...

Abdominoplasty - An Overview

MCh - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Ahmedabad
Abdominoplasty - An Overview

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a frequently performed cosmetic procedure which is meant to improve the looks or appearance of your abdominal region. The primary goal of this procedure is to remove excess skin or fat from the abdominal region and then reconnect the tissues with sutures to get a more toned and flat look.

The requirement for abdominoplasty: 

The tummy tuck surgery is for someone who has folds of fat or skin on their abdominal region that results in an unsightly appearance and causes body image issues. These problems may be caused by multiple factors, some of which are mentioned below:

  1. Significant weight loss: Men or women who have lost a lot of weight tend to have excess loose skin on their bodies as a result of the skin being stretched over a long period of time.
  2. Pregnancy: Many women who have gone through multiple pregnancies also have similar problems as the skin in their abdominal region tends to stretch over multiple times which may result in the skin becoming flabby.
  3. You have a weak lower abdominal wall: Some patients tend to generally have a weak lower abdominal wall which over the years tends to protrude and hang. This results in a misshapen body which they want to correct for body image issues. 
  4. To correct scarring from C section: Many women who give birth via C-section tend to have a scar on their body and some abdominal contouring can change the shape and size of the scar, which in turn not only tightens the tummy but also hides the scars.

Considerations before abdominoplasty:

Abdominoplasty isn't recommended if you fall under any of the following categories:

  1. Still have to lose weight: If you have to lose a lot of weight, then it is advised that you wait till your goal weight is reached and only then consider this procedure. Abdominoplasty isn't meant to reduce weight, but to take out excess skin and flab that remains after weight loss
  2. Plan on becoming pregnant again: If you are planning to become pregnant again, then the muscles and tissues in your abdomen might loosen and cause a flabby belly again.
  3. If you have heart disease or other conditions: If you have heart related conditions or are diabetic, then abdominoplasty won't be considered as it might put you at high risk of complications after surgery.

Hi I have a doubt. Is drinking detox drink lemon honey and ginger is good for health? Please give a suggestion.
Hello, lemon water with ginger and honey has amazing detox properties but if you are aiming for weight loss then remember 1 tbsp of honey has about 60 to 70 calories. Ginger, lemon and honey tea is a refreshing beverage often used to help relieve cold and flu symptoms. These ingredients have their own natural medicinal qualities and when they are combined, they create a soothing tea that can ease symptoms and boost your immune system.
