Hi lybrate-user! I can understandvyour feelings and love towards your cousin. But practically speaking in your community can you marry your cousin. If so, then definitely you can disclose your secret love to your cousin and tell your feelings too, if she is able to understand the depth of your love well and Good. Then you can tell to your mother about your love affair and she will definitely take the initiative which would be good for you. You need to be frank where you need to be. Do not maintain secrecy. First propose and tell your feelings to your cousin, hope she can understand. Let me know the result will guide you whatever the decision. Try to be bold and strong whether she accepts you or not no matter you will know the result. Any result accept the reality. If negative do contact me will guide you to lead a happy and peaceful life. But hope she will understand and accept. Take care. Be relaxed. Be bold and strong always. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Include high calorie food items in between your main meals such as dark chocolates, cakes, nuts, cheese, yoghurt, sweetened beverages such as cold coffee, shakes. Help yourself with more of nuts & dairy products.

7 Days Belly Flat Diet Plan

7 Days Belly Flat Diet Plan

7 days flat belly diet plan

For people who have lost their shape can get back into shape for which a perfect plan has to be cut out, it has to be planned in such a way that this plan will enable losing all the unnecessary fat. It has to be understood that this diet plan which is being etched will not include any harmful food which will promote the body in storing fat which usually means foods like sugar, processed foods and alcohol.

This plan which is being made up usually includes foods like lean meat, fish, chicken, turkey and some fresh vegetables, the main part of this plan is that it has been cut out thinking that the body is usually lean and fit nothing like a fat and lazy one. Processed foods are known to contaminate the body forcing additional fat to be stuck at the usually flat stomach, hips, thighs and bum but for the body to quickly lose all the unnecessary fat it is necessary to stop intake of these foods which pollute the body.

Though all the processed food is cut down it is also necessary to first believe that you can do it that have to be supported by some changes to the diet in order to get a flat belly at a faster rate.

Avoid junk food: Keep distance from four main foods which are known to the prime ones to force fat onto the body which are caffeine, refined sugar, alcohol and processed foods. Indulge in fat food weekly once. There is no harm done to the body if any fancy food can be eaten once a week as long as it is not too much and rest of the time only healthy food has to be chosen. Consume fish oil: this is known to burn excessive fat and provide with all the necessary fatty acids. Make breakfast compulsory: breakfast has to be eaten just after an hour from when you wake up and if there is not much time left for breakfast go with nuts and fresh fruits. Say no to heavy meals after 8 pm: do not entertain heavy meals in the evening especially if the body is having a feeling of being slow down.

Apart from the changes made to diet, it is also necessary to indulge in physical activity which also has to be done in a smarter way rather than getting it done in a harder way. For those who are going to exercises should see that they will get more out of less rather than going with exercise throughout the day, hence, here we give you moves to get flat belly which is known to work on the reduction of stress hormones in body which are known to mainly affect middle part of the body.

Breathing squat:

Energy push:

This is the exercise which is known to be great for those suffering from digestion which needs breathing to be done slowly and repeated for 20 times

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and arms in front while the palms are facing down. Inhale while pulling the hands back towards the shoulder. Exhale while pushing the arms back into its starting position.

Leg tuck:

This physical exercise is known to work great for those who want to attain lower abs which have to be repeated 10 times.

Cushing's Syndrome - Sign's You Are Suffering From It!

Cushing's Syndrome - Sign's You Are Suffering From It!

The adrenal glands are present above the kidneys (hence the name) and produces an important hormone known as cortisol. Cortisol is responsible for regulating multiple body functions, including controlling the blood pressure, protein and carbohydrate metabolism, and anti-inflammatory response, and stress management.

Under natural circumstances, the body produces excessive cortisol in the following situations:
Physically stressing situations like illness, surgery, injury, pregnancy, etc.

  1. Emotionally stressed situations
  2. Alcoholism
  3. Athletic training
  4. Malnutrition
  5. Depression
  6. Panic disorders

Causes: Cushing’s syndrome is a group of symptoms that manifest when there is too much cortisol in the body. It is more common in women than men, in the age group of 25 to 40. Some of the common causes for Cushing’s syndrome are listed below:

  1. Consuming too much of prednisone (and other steroids) or for prolonged periods can cause Cushing’s syndrome. These are strong anti-inflammatory medications and are used in asthma, arthritis, lupus, transplants, etc., to control the body’s inflammation reaction. It is therefore advisable to use topical steroids than oral steroids or injections as their effects are more noticeable and severe.
  2. Adrenal gland tumours can cause excessive production of cortisol.
  3. Pituitary gland tumours or adenomas also can also cause excessive production of cortisol, leading to Cushing’s syndrome.

The first type is known as exogenous Cushing’s disease and the others are known as endogenous Cushing’s disease.
Signs and symptoms: Cushing’s disease produces characteristic features which are referred to as the Cushingoid appearance. These features include the following:

  1. A rounded, plump face with a pinkish hue
  2. A moon face, with fat deposits on the face
  3. A buffalo hump with fat deposits between the shoulders
  4. Stretch marks on the abdomen, thighs, and arms
  5. Weak muscles, especially in the hips and shoulder
  6. Significant weight gain
  7. Skin that gets thin and bruises easily
  8. Extreme tiredness
  9. High blood pressure
  10. High blood sugar
  11. Thin arms and legs
  12. Delayed healing of cuts and injuries
  13. Increased facial hair in women
  14. Menstrual disorders
  15. Reduced libido, infertility, and erectile dysfunction in men
  16. Emotional issues like depression, anxiety, irritability
  17. Increased thirst and urination
  18. Bone loss, and eventually fractures
  19. Affected bone growth in the developing years
  20. Increased susceptibility to infections

Complications: Untreated Cushing’s disease can lead to bone fractures, hypertension, full-blown infections, kidney stones, etc.

Treatment: This would depend on the cause. If you are on long-term steroids, the dose would need to be adjusted. This should always be done under medical supervision, as it requires constant adjustment. Underlying tumours (pituitary or adrenal) need to be diagnosed and treated. There are other hormones too which come into the picture and need to be monitored. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist..

Good intake of ghee, rice, and High calorie-contained food will increase the weight in women. Cheese items, boiled items, oil content foods, pizzas, and burgers will play a major role in increasing the weight in greater extent. 1. First thing to do to gain weight is eating the right amount of food each day. Take about 20 times of your body weight in calories every day. It is better to plan your meals daily as you know what and when to eat – and you don’t have to just go have it for the sake of filling your stomach. 2. Keep checking your weight daily. Multiply your body weight into 20 and that is the amount of calorie that you must eat on a daily basis. So if you weigh 120 pounds and multiply it by 20, you’ll have to eat 2, 400 calories everyday to gain weight fast. 3. The intake of calorie is not necessarily be exactly 20 times of your body weight but for optimum results it would be the best measurement to start with. If you can add additional calories if you aren’t finding any gain in your weight. 4. Next, pay attention to the type of food that you eat. You will end up just putting on weight instead of healthy muscles if you keep eating junk foods. In order to get muscle weight, eat healthy food, such as meat, carbohydrate rich food and healthy fat. Have an approximate calculation of this combination in your daily diet – carbohydrate 40%, protein 30%, and fat 30% this would be an ideal combination of healthy diet. 5. If your body needs to receive regular stream of nutrients, you need to change to frequent or smaller number of regular meals (for example 4 to 6 smaller meals) daily instead of big 3 meals as usual. This way it will be easier to build muscles weight.

Stress is one of the main reasons for people losing weight. So if you are dealing with a stressful situation at work or home, take up yoga or master breathing techniques to help you de-stress your body. Once you learn to de-stress and relax, you will find it easy to put on weight.

Hello, Gaining weight is a slow process which requires patience and dedication! It not only depends upon the amount of food you consume daily, but also about eating Sensibly, depends upon your genes, your body's proper metabolism, assimilation and absorption, the levels of stress/ tension in your life, and any underlying medical condition you have! The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on the below points ( if you don’t have any medical condition) which helps in gaining weight in a right way without harming your body. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos., both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 3months. Revert.

Its called palpitation. Usually it has no major cause once ruled out of the following heart disease (ischaemia, conduction problem) anemia thyroid disorders sometimes its caused due to excessive stress. Its ok if you have none of the above. Just cough voluntarily 2-4 times wen you start feeling such thing. That would help.

My latest blood sugar checked today at home is 114 mg/dl ( by One Touch Glucometer of Johnson & Johnson) and latest TSH level is 1.6 mIU/ml, T3 is 1.2 ng/ml and T4 is 10.0 mcg/dl. Is the blood sugar checked at home with this glucometer are as accurate as lab results? My latest Hb1Ac is 6.1. I got diabetes only a year back and this was not the case in the beginning. I do feel nausea in the morning even if I eat less, don't eat or eat full in the breakfast. I do feel full by just eating quite lesser amount of food than I used to eat before. So, what is the solution of my weariness everyday? Is it food or medicine? I have to take Metformin since it controls my blood sugar very effectively and it is safer drug than other drugs. I am basically Pharmacist and can understand that organs lose it's efficiency day by day in diabetes if not controlled within limits. But as I check my blood sugar every week or two at home, it generally comes within limit of 110 mg/dl with sometimes going out of limit once in a while by 10-20 points if I have eaten some sweets or eaten more carbs or eaten in more quantity. What habits I should follow in order to control blood sugar along with feeling energetic everyday?
