Bananas have a good amount of calories that will give you an instant energy lift and help you gain weight. Eat one to two ripe bananas for breakfast. Then drink a glass of warm milk, mixed with a little sugar and one teaspoon of clarified butter. Follow this breakfast routine for a month.

Why Are You Not Losing Weight Despite Diet And Exercise?

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Why Are You Not Losing Weight Despite Diet And Exercise?

Weight gain is a complex situation. As you would have witnessed, despite being on a diet, reduced food intake, intense workout and exercise, herbal/nutritional supplements, losing weight may be difficult. That's because body weight is regulated by a mechanism called metabolism which in turn is controlled by hormones. 

Metabolism in short means breaking down of complex foods into simple components. So food, as we eat, is broken into carbs, proteins and fats. Extra carbs are turned into fats for future use. So if too much carbs are taken, by default you are strong too much fat. But if you have corrected your diet then ideally you shud be losing weight. When that doesn't happen, it indicates that there must be an underlying problem with metabolism.

Here's what you/anybody trying to lose weight must do. 

  • Check for thyroid levels.
  • Check sugar levels. 
  • If you are having menstrual problems, chances of hormonal imbalance are higher which could cause weight gain. Consult a doctor. Who will advise an ultrasonography?
  • Continue the diet
  • Continue physical activity. 
  • Do not try to lose more than 2 kgs a month - you will bounce back higher. 
  • Please note thyroid and sugar tests may be negative initially - they take a long time even 2-3 yrs to finally appear in reports, despite patients having symptoms of the condition. 

Last but not least, in fact very imp, be happy since stress is the only initial trigger to cause disturbances in body's functions.

Scientists now know that the body does not register liquid calories in the same way it does solid calories. Drinking a grande caffe mocha, for instance, won't make you feel satiated the way eating a bowl of pasta will. Which means that although the caffe mocha actually has a greater number of calories than the pasta, you're still more likely to want a second cup from Starbucks than another plate of linguine. So monitor your intake of juice, soda, coffee drinks and wine. If you consume one of each of those beverages during the day, you'll have taken in at least 800 extra calories by nighttime — and you'll still be hungry. (Incidentally, alcohol may suppress the metabolism of fat, making it tougher for you to burn those calories.)

Important brain nutrients found only in meat, fish and eggs and not in plants

Important brain nutrients found only in meat, fish and eggs and not in plants
Important brain nutrients found only in meat, fish and eggs and not in plants

There are many nutrients that are absolutely critical for the proper function of our brains. Going completely vegan and avoiding animal foods definately leads to deficiency in many brain nutrients vital for a healthy and kicking brain. I highly recommend that people who choose to avoid meat for ethical reasons (because there is no proven health reason) at least include some eggs and oily fish. A little bit goes a long way and it is possible to choose natural, humanely raised sources. Unlike herbivorous animals human digestive system contains enzymes to digest both meat and veggy sources.

So here are nutrients which are only found in animal sources and you cant get even trace amounts in plants:

1. Vitamin b12 vitamin b12 is critical for the nervous system and is primarily only in animal foods. A deficiency can cause all sorts of adverse effects on brain function.

2. Creatine creatine is an important nutrient in muscle and brain that helps to supply energy. Studies show that vegetarians have a deficiency in creatine that leads to adverse effects on muscle and brain function.
3. Vitamin d3 a large part of the world is deficient in vitamin d3, which is only found in animal foods. A deficiency in this critical nutrient is associated with depression and various diseases.
4. Carnosine carnosine is found strictly in animal tissues. This nutrient can reduce damage caused by elevated blood glucose and may have strong anti-aging effects.
5. Docosahexaenoic acid (dha) the omega-3 fatty acid dha is critical for proper function of the brain. It is primarily found in animal foods like fatty fish. Studies show that vegans and vegetarians are often deficient in it.
Optimally atleast one daily serving of animal product like egg, fish or meat is recommened for a healthy brain. But to those who really decide to remove all animal foods from their diet, then make sure to be very concerned about your diet and supplements, or you may end up very sick with a poorly functioning brain.

Go for an evening walk. Don't get me wrong — exercising at any time is good for you. But evening activity may be particularly beneficial because many people's metabolism slows down toward the end of the day. Thirty minutes of aerobic activity before dinner increases your metabolic rate and may keep it elevated for another two or three hours, even after you've stopped moving. What that means for you: Those dinner calories have less of a chance to take up permanent residence on your hips.
