How To Protect Yourself From Sexually Transmitted Diseases?

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad

Sexually transmitted diseases or STDs are venereal diseases which occur when you have sexual contact or sexual intercourse with an infected person. In women, sexually transmitted diseases can lead to infertility, miscarriage, premature birth of the child or infection in the newborn baby.

Sexually transmitted diseases spread through transfer of body fluids like semen, vaginal secretions and blood. However, there are ways to protect yourself from STDs provided you know all the facts pertaining to sexually transmitted diseases.

 

  1. Avoid having multiple sex partners. You never know whether one of your sex partners has STD, and if he does, you will surely end up getting it.
  2. Sexually transmitted diseases are extremely contagious and even if you are in a monogamous relationship and your partner has STD from a previous relationship, there is 80 to 90 percent chance that you will get infected. Make sure your partner gets treated before having sex with him or her.
  3. You can also get sexually transmitted diseases through anal sex, and oral sex.
  4. A mother can pass on STD to her child during childbirth if she is infected with STD.
  5. Sexually transmitted diseases weaken the immune system and you are susceptible to catch other infections because of this.
  6. Many times STDs in women are misdiagnosed because the symptoms are not very clear. When this happens, a woman can easily end up infecting her partner.
  7. Lesbians are less likely to get STDs as sexually transmitted diseases are not easily spread from one woman to another.
  8. Bisexual men can contract STDs from their homosexual partner and pass it on to their heterosexual partner.

How To Cope With Infertility?

Sexologist, Faridabad
How To Cope With Infertility?

Fertility and having children is a central issue for many couples and even single women. It can be very challenging—both emotionally and physically—if you are not able to have children at all or are undergoing fertility treatments. Questions from and expectations by the outside world can make it even more difficult. By dealing with the physical and emotional aspects of infertility and seeking support, you can deal with infertility.

Handling the Physical and Emotional Effects of Infertility

Acknowledge your feelings. Anyone experiencing infertility often has a wide array of feelings such as denial, shock, numbness, anger, guilt, and shame. Acknowledging these feelings can help you start to get over them. Giving your feelings the proper attention by acknowledging them and seeking support through friends, family members, and even health professionals can give you power over them and any related situations you may encounter.

  • Remember that your feelings are completely natural.
  • Write down your feelings about your infertility or consider keeping a journal to track your progress or even just give you a private space in which to deal with your feelings.
  • Make sure you don’t hide your feelings from those people with whom you are close. They may find it difficult to understand how you truly feel if you mask it with smiles and “I’m okay.”
  • Avoid forcing yourself to feel a certain way. Instead, welcome any anger or sadness you feel and then let it go.
  • Consider saying daily positive affirmations to help you acknowledge your feelings. You could say something like, “I am so angry I can’t have children, but I am strong and my life will be just as full without kids.”


Let yourself grieve. Grief can be a normal reaction to infertility. Whether you’re still hoping to have a successful pregnancy or are unable to carry a child, your mind is likely already grieving. Not allowing yourself to mourn the loss can cause stress and anxiety and won’t allow you to feel better again.

  • Approach the grief process with infertility as “grieving a dream.” This can help make it more concrete and also cue your mind into knowing that your feelings of loss are completely normal.
  • Talking to your partner, family, friends, or even writing in a journal can help you get through the grieving process.

Ignore social stigmas. Most people are socialized, but fertility and having children are something about which many people feel entitled to comment. People may make insensitive remarks about you not having children without knowing your situation. In some cases, people may even feel it acceptable to make comments like, “if you hadn’t waited so long.” These types of comments and stigmas, which are often a result of lack of information, may make you feel guilt, shame, stress, anxiety, or depression. Learning to ignore comments and social stigmas can help you to cope with your infertility.

  • Avoid worrying about how other people may react to your infertility. Ignoring negative comments and reactions can help you more readily cope with the disorder. Telling yourself, “What other people think is their business” may help you gradually disconnect from negative comments and social stigmas.
  • Counter a negative comment with, “you know, I’m undergoing fertility treatments right now and it’s been really stressful” or “unfortunately, I can’t have children” that people are genuinely helpful, concerned, and eager to support you.
  • Re-channel negativity by taking a deep breath and thinking of something positive, like doing an activity you love. For example, say to yourself “I may be struggling with infertility, but the condition doesn’t own or define me. I can go out and laugh with other people and even children.”

Manage stress and anxiety. Infertility and its treatment can cause any person considerable stress and anxiety, be it physiological side effects, money concerns, and treatment failure. Taking active steps to reduce and manage any stress in your life can also help you cope more effectively with your infertility.

  • Step away from any situation that causes your stress if you are able. This might include going to baby showers or children’s birthday parties.
  • Use deep breathing techniques to help yourself relax or get through stressful situations. You can do this by sitting or standing up straight and inhaling deeply through your nose for a few seconds. Then hold it and exhale through your nose for the same amount of time as you inhaled. Do these breathing exercises for five minutes when you feel stressed or anxious can help relieve your feelings.

Pamper yourself. Taking care of and having time to yourself can help reduce stress and make you feel better. If you are dealing with infertility and any related emotional or physical issues, schedule “me time” to distract your mind and give yourself a break.

  • Consider activities that keep you engaged with other people who don’t remind you of your infertility. For example, have lunch with a work colleague or enjoy happy hour with friends.
  • Do things that allow you to pamper yourself and reduce stress such as taking a gentle yoga or meditation class or getting a massage. Allow yourself to buy something nice or do an activity you love such as mountain climbing or making pottery. Even reading a book in the bath is a nice way to pamper yourself.
  • Remember that you should never feel guilty for wanting some time to pamper yourself. It is important for reducing stress and promoting your overall wellbeing.

How To Prevent The Common Cold?

How To Prevent The Common Cold?

From a runny nose and irritating cough to a sore throat and fever (or worse), a case of the common cold is sure to make your life miserable for a few days. The worst part is that, in a month, it can happen all over again. Practice strategies to prevent the common cold and stay healthy year-round.


Wash your hands frequently. Washing your hands in the most preventable way of contracting the cold or flu virus. Scrub your hands with soap and water before eating, and before and after using the bathroom. To wash your hands, follow these instructions: 

  • Wet your hands with warm or cold water.
  • Apply soap to your hands.
  • Rub your hands to lather them together. Scrub everywhere. Do not forget to scrub under your fingernails, between your fingers, and the backs of your hands.
  • Scrub for at least 20 seconds. Singing “Happy Birthday” is a quick way to remember how long.
  • Rinse your hands with clean water.
  • Shut off the tap with a paper towel so you do not contaminate your hands again.
  • Use a paper towel to open the door of a public bathroom.


Use hand sanitizer if you don’t have soap. Washing your hands is the best way to keep them clean. But if you do not have soap and water available, you can use a 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  • If your hands are visibly dirty, it’s best to use soap and water.

Keep your hands away from your face. Don't rub your eyes, nostrils, or ears if your hands aren't clean. Spreading germs from your hands to your face can lead to infection.

How To Improve Your Health?

Sexologist, Faridabad
How To Improve Your Health?

Staying healthy is a key component to living a long and happy life. There are many aspects to both mental and physical health that can make it hard to maintain. You can improve your health in many ways, but it can be overwhelming to attempt all of these changes at one time. The best way to improve your health is by making small changes that you stick with. Over time, you can add new changes and build upon the old ones. By focusing on one or two areas on time, you can gradually improve your health.

 


Eat a balanced diet of foods that are high-fiber, healthy fats, low-sugar, and low-salt. A healthy diet gives you more energy and improves your outlook and moods. High-fiber diets help keep you regular, and lower your risk for stroke, heart disease, and diabetes, while excess salt can increase your risk for these complications. Sugar causes short energy spikes that can lead to a crash later. It has also been linked to depression and diabetes.

  • Healthy fats can be found in foods such as fish, nuts, and avocados.
  • Eat lots of leafy green vegetables. Kale, broccolicabbage, and other leafy greens are packed full of essential vitamins and nutrients.
  • Whole foods such as fruit and vegetables have more than enough sugar to give your body what it needs.
  • Limit your fruit intake. While fruit does contain essential nutrients, it is also very high in sugar. Eating too much fruit can be just as bad as eating a cookie.

 

Start your day with a high-protein, high-fiber breakfast. Eating breakfast every day is a must. Waking up and eating a filling breakfast helps you maintain concentration during the day, enhances strength and endurance during physical activity, and can lower cholesterol levels. Eating a breakfast high in protein and fiber will keep you full throughout the morning and help you avoid snacking. Fiber is also digested slower and helps you feel full longer.

  • Eat lean protein such as eggs or a slice of salmon.
  • Whole grain, high-fiber cereals can also keep you full through the morning.
  • A hearty breakfast can also keep you from snacking before lunch. While snacking is not necessarily a bad thing, you want to snack smart. Eat a handful of roasted nuts or a small piece of fruit.

 

Keep a food log of everything you eat each day. Just the act of writing down what you’ve eaten can keep you from eating that extra candy bar. Keeping a log of everything you eat makes you aware of gaps in your diet or unhealthy foods you may be consuming too much of. Assess the foods you eat on a regular basis (every one to two weeks) and alter your diet as necessary.

  • Find a logger that works best for you. Some may want to use plain old pencil and paper while others might find a website or phone app works better.
  • Keep your diary nearby so you don’t have to go out of your way to log the foods you eat.
  • Some food log apps include nutritional information that can also assist you in your logging.
  • Be honest with your tracker. This food log is for you, so cheating only hurts you.

 

Read the nutrition labels on packaging. Foods containing hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup are not going to be good for you. Taking a second to read the ingredients list and nutrition facts will make you more aware of what you’re eating. Foods high in sugar and sodium should also be avoided.

  • When reading the labels, note the serving size. At first glance, a food item might not seem that bad until you realize there are three servings in the package.


Cut up fruits and vegetables when you get home. A lot of fruits and vegetables get thrown out because they are forgotten about or you don’t take the time to prepare them right away. Cut up those fruits and veggies in the way you prefer to eat them. Keep them in a clear container at eye level in the refrigerator.

  • When you are craving a snack and open the fridge to see what’s inside, you’ll see the fresh fruits and vegetables and reach for those instead of something unhealthy.
  • This will also help you cut down on food waste.

 

Order groceries online to avoid impulse buys. Grocery stores are specifically set up to encourage consumers to buy things they wouldn’t necessarily have on their list. In addition, many of the items that appear to be a great deal have little to no nutritional value and are not good for a healthy balanced diet. If you find that you have a tendency to succumb to impulse buys, try doing your shopping online.

  • Check to see if your local grocery store has an online ordering system.
  • There are plenty of other online sources that allow you to shop online and have the groceries delivered directly to your door.

 

How To Maintain Good Spiritual Health?

How To Maintain Good Spiritual Health?

To maintain your spiritual health, engage in regular devotional practices like prayer and meditation. Be mindful in your daily activities, and stay in touch with your body, your emotions, and your sense of connection to all beings. Move beyond your fears and ambitions by doing good work for others, and empathizing with their concerns.

Meditate and pray. Prayer and meditation are activities you can engage in daily, or many times a day. By incorporating it into your daily routine, you can maintain your spiritual health in the same way that you maintain your physical health. Pray or meditate by yourself or with a group.

  • Join a prayer group at your place of worship.
  • Gather with a yoga and meditation group in parks and other natural places.

 

Take monthly or yearly excursions to reconnect to your spirituality. It's important to have a daily routine, but you don't want to just go through the motions. To break your habits and get a new perspective, go to a new place and spend a longer time working at your spiritual practices.

  • Go on a silent meditation retreat.
  • Take a trip with a church group.
  • Make a pilgrimage to a holy place.


Study core texts and contemporary takes. Read the earliest texts of your faith tradition, like the Torah, the Tripitaka, or the Qur'ran. Try reading a little every day. Join a reading group or get a study buddy to keep you on schedule.

  • If you are interested in spirituality across religious faiths, read texts from many faiths.
  • Read poetry and song lyrics inspired by the core texts of your faith.

 

Reflect on your beliefs. Rather than being a passive believer, maintain your spiritual health by questioning, affirming, and revising the principles of your faith.

  • Write down the things you hold to be true, and write a little bit about them.
  • If something is troubling you, don't hide it from yourself. Share it with someone you trust, and discuss your concerns together.

How To Make Fruit Salad?

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad
How To Make Fruit Salad?

Fruit salad is a classic potluck contribution for a reason. It's easy to mix together a variety of fruits that will make a refreshing, flavorful side or dessert. For a fast fruit salad, mix strawberries, peaches, and berries with a little lemon juice, honey, and vinegar. If you'd like more of a syrupy salad, combine tropical fruits with an easy citrus-honey dressing. To make a creamy fruit salad that makes a light dessert, beat cream cheese with mayonnaise, sugar, and Greek yogurt. Then coat pieces of fruit in the creamy mixture and enjoy!

Cut the strawberries and peaches into 1⁄2 inch (1.3 cm) slices. Rinse 1 pound (450 g) of hulled strawberries and 3 medium peaches. Then use a paring knife to cut the fruit into thin, even slices.

  • If you can't find ripe peaches, substitute plums or nectarines.


Toss the strawberries, peaches, blueberries, and basil together. Scoop the sliced strawberries and peaches into a serving bowl. Add 1 cup (100 g) of blueberries and 1 tablespoon (2 g) of fresh, chopped basil or mint. Use salad tongs or 2 large spoons to gently mix the fruit.

  • If you prefer, use blackberries or raspberries instead of the blueberries.

Pour the lemon juice, maple syrup, and balsamic vinegar on the fruit. You'll need 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of maple syrup or honey, and 2 teaspoons (9.9 ml) of balsamic vinegar.

  • The balsamic vinegar will give the fruit salad a slightly tangy flavor. For a milder flavor, leave it out.

Mix the fruit salad and serve it immediately. Toss the fruit with the liquids until the fruit is coated. You can serve the fruit salad immediately or chill it until you're ready to eat. Refrigerate the fruit salad for up to 2 days.

  • Keep in mind that the fruit salad will soften and liquid will pool at the bottom of the dish the longer it's stored.

How To Eat Fruit On A Diabetes Diet?

Sexologist, Faridabad
How To Eat Fruit On A Diabetes Diet?

For many diabetics, fruit and fruit products seem like a safe and reliable substitute for other sweets or desserts. However, depending on the specific fruit and your circumstances, eating fruit may aggravate your diabetes. Consult with your doctor or a registered dietitian to construct a meal plan that includes fruit as a safe part of your diet. In the end, you'll be able to eat fruit and manage your diabetes much better.

Eat fruit without additives. The best fruits are ones without any additives. Focus on:

  • Fresh fruit
  • Canned fruit in its own juice
  • Frozen fruit
  • Dried fruit
  • Fruit juice

Choose fruits low on the glycemic index. Foods with a low glycemic index (GI) are processed slower by the body and won't spike your blood sugar. Some fruits with a low GI include:

  • Pomegranates
  • Grapes
  • Apples
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Plums

Avoid fruits and products with a high glycemic index. Fruits or dishes with high glycemic indexes release sugars into your blood stream quicker, and may spike your blood sugar levels. Thus, fruits with a high glycemic index should only be consumed in moderation by people with diabetes. Stay away from:

  • Fruit desserts with added sugar. For example, strawberries with whipped cream.
  • Smoothies with added sugar.
  • Cooked fruits, which have more concentrated sugar levels due to water loss.
  • Fresh items with a high glycemic index like dates, pineapple, watermelon, mangoes, and papaya.

Stay away fruit with low fiber content. Since fiber slows down the rate that your body can absorb and process sugar, high fiber fruits are best for diabetics. Much like fruit with a high glycemic index, low fiber ones may aggravate your diabetes.

  • Avoid fruits that have been peeled.
  • Don't drink juice without pulp.
  • Stay away from heavily processed fruit juice with low fiber content.
  • Focus on high fiber fruits like apples, bananas, and oranges.

How To Eat More Fruits And Vegetables?

Sexologist, Faridabad
How To Eat More Fruits And Vegetables?

Fruits and vegetables contain many essential nutrients for health. They also have few calories, plenty of fiber, and plant sterols that have been proven effective against heart disease. The National Institute of Health has published studies on why fruit and vegetable consumption is low, with cost ranking highest among reasons. Additionally, many people are unsure of how to incorporate fruits and vegetables into their busy lifestyle. But including fruits and vegetables in your diet is not as difficult as it may seem. There are ways to eat more fruits and vegetables daily starting with knowing how to shop to finding to creative ways to incorporate into each meal.

Think ahead to eating more fruits and vegetables and less junk food, and buy your foods accordingly. Purchase fresh when it fits your budget and timing. Fresh fruits and vegetables can be more expensive, but are worth the money in nutrition and flavor. Usually they can be eaten raw or cooked. Sometimes there is not a substitute for fresh. Fresh fruits and vegetables should be consumed in the week you purchase them to avoid rot or lessening nutritional value. Antioxidant content begins to degrade immediately after harvest as do some vitamins, so the closer to harvest you eat them the more nutrition you will obtain.

Purchase frozen fruits and vegetables for convenience or when fresh are not in season. Frozen vegetables are frozen quickly after harvest and maintain many nutrients. They are easy to cook and can be stored for long periods of time. They are also very affordable and readily available. Frozen fruit is also a good option. It can be defrosted overnight and eaten without cooking, but the texture will have changed because of the freezing process. It is best to use frozen fruit for desserts or to cook with.

Purchase canned to stock your pantry and for cooking. Canned vegetables are great for making soups and casseroles. They are also convenient. Canned vegetables may have lost some nutrients during the high heat cooking process, but they still contain a fair amount. Having canned fruits and vegetables on hand helps with having a fruit or vegetable at every meal. When purchasing canned fruit be sure to read the label. Many canned fruits are packed in syrup, which adds extra sugar and calories. Try purchasing canned fruit in juice or water instead. Canned fruit is great for all ages because it is typically softer and comes pre-portioned.

Purchase purees and juices for cooking or eating “on the go.” Purees are useful for making smoothies and adding sauces. Juice has nutrients, but lacks the fiber. It is good for getting a fruit in when you don’t have time or you are not somewhere fruit is readily available. The high sugar and calorie content of juice makes it a tricky choice. The best way to consume is in moderation. Also, remember to only purchase 100% fruit juice.

How To Cure A Cold With Garlic?

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad

Investigate whether garlic helps with cold symptoms. A recent study looked at the effectiveness of garlic in 146 people over a three month period. Those that took a garlic supplement had 24 occurrences of cold symptoms, as opposed to 65 occurrences in those that did not take garlic. Also, those that took garlic had 1 day less of cold symptoms.

  • In another study, those that took garlic had fewer symptoms of a cold and felt better sooner, possibly because a subset of immune cells were increased in those people taking 2.56 g of a garlic supplement daily.

  • Most researchers believe that sulfur-containing compounds in garlic, allicins, are responsible for the anti-common cold effects. However, there are a number of other elements in garlic, such as saponins and amino acid derivatives that are thought to play a role in reducing the viral load, though it is not clear how they might do this.

Deal with the smell. Many may be concerned about the smell of garlic. The same substances that appear to be effective against the cold virus are the ones that are also responsible for the smell. So, in order to help alleviate your cold symptoms, you are going to have to deal with the smell.

  • The good news is that you should be staying home from work and school and staying away from other people. You should also be resting and drinking plenty of fluids. All this means is that while the garlic may smell, for the most part, only you and your loved ones will be around. This seems like a small price to pay for getting better sooner with fewer symptoms!


Eat raw garlic. Always start with fresh garlic if possible. Peel the “paper” off the garlic and use a garlic press or the side of a knife blade to crush the garlic. Eat about 1 raw garlic clove every 3-4 hours. Just peel and eat!

  • If you are not a fan of the taste, wash the garlic down by mixing it with orange juice.
  • You can also add it to lemon water. Add the garlic to a mixture of 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 6-8 ounces of water and stir.
  • Raw garlic can also be added to honey water. Honey has both antibiotic and antiviral properties. Add 1-2 tablespoons of honey to 6-8 ounces of water and stir.

 

Cook with garlic. While raw garlic appears to be the best, cooked garlic still contains allicins that are thought to be effective. Peel and either crush or mince the garlic cloves. Then let the crushed/minced garlic sit for 15 minutes. This allows enzymatic activity to “activate” the allicins in garlic.

  • Use 2-3 cloves of garlic for every meal during a cold. If you are eating light, add the crushed/minced garlic to your chicken or vegetable broth and heat it as you normally would. If you are eating normally, try cooking garlic alongside your vegetables or add garlic to rice as it cooks.
  • You can also add the crushed/minced garlic to tomato or cheese sauces, once you are feeling better. Rub the crushed/minced over meat or poultry and cook the meat and poultry as you normally would.


Make a garlic tea. The hot liquid can also help with decongestion. Bring 3 cups of water and 3 cloves of garlic (cut in half) to a boil. Turn off the heat and add 1/2 cup of honey and 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice with the seeds and the rind included. These contain a significant amount of vitamin C and antioxidants.

  • Strain the tea and sip throughout the day.
  • Refrigerate leftover tea and reheat as needed.


Use a garlic supplement. This can be a good method for those that are very opposed to the taste of garlic. To help reduce the symptoms of your cold, take 2-3 grams of garlic a day in divided doses

How To Eat More Protein?

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad
How To Eat More Protein?

Protein is considered a “macronutrient,” meaning that our bodies generally require large amounts of it. This is because our bodies use protein to make everything from bones and hair to muscles and blood. However, unlike fats and carbohydrates, our bodies do not store protein, which makes it important to consistently keep proper amounts of protein in your diet. By learning what foods are high in protein and how to integrate them into your diet, you can easily begin eating more protein.

 

Adding More Protein to Your Diet

Add more seafood and lean meat to your diet. Seafood and poultry are two excellent sources of protein. They’re also healthier options than other forms of meat protein because they’re generally lower in fat.

  • In addition to being a great source of protein, many seafood options, such as salmon, are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for the heart.
  • Dark meat poultry is slightly higher in fat than white meat. You should also remove the skin from poultry before cooking because it’s loaded with saturated fat.
  • Pork tenderloin is another protein-rich white meat. It is less lean than poultry but still leaner than red meat.

Choose lean beef. When you do have a dish that calls for beef, ensure that you use lean beef. Lean cuts are generally only 1g higher in saturated fat than skinless chicken, and they’re still a great source of protein. Some examples of lean cuts of beef include top round, sirloin, flank steak, and 93% ground beef. A 3.5 oz serving of lean beef has 10g or less of fat, 4.5g or less of saturated fat, and less than 95mg of cholesterol.

  • In addition to a source of protein, lean cuts of beef also contain zinc, iron, and vitamin B12.
  • Look for the terms “loin” or “round” to help pick out lean cuts of beef.


Increase the amount of low-fat dairy in your diet. Milk, cheese, and yogurt are all good sources of dietary protein. Full-fat options can carry heavy calorie counts, though, so always opt for low-fat options (such as 1% or skim milk) to maximize the amount of protein while minimizing calories.

  • Dairy products are also a great source of calcium and many are fortified with vitamin D.
  • Try strained Greek or Icelandic yogurt for a higher protein snack. Each 6 oz serving has about 14g protein, compared to 10g in low-fat yogurt.


Eat more eggs. If you’re looking to add more protein on a budget, eggs are one of the least expensive sources of protein you can find. The American Heart Association even says that healthy adults can safely add an egg to their diet every day.

  • As with dairy products, you can also maximize protein while minimizing fat based on how you eat the eggs. Egg whites contain nearly 50% of the protein in the entire egg while containing almost no fat, so consider separating the egg white from the yolk when eating eggs. Purchasing a carton of egg whites can also be a good option. Be sure to read the label to make sure it is 100% egg whites, since some brands add salt.

Add more beans to your diet. Beans are a great source of protein for any diet, and they’re also loaded with fiber and other nutrients that keep you feeling full, which makes them a perfect substitute for red meat in a number of dishes, including chili and tacos. 1/2 cup of beans even contains as much protein as a full ounce of broiled steak.
Eat more soy. Soy is another great source of protein, and it’s lower in fat than many other sources, which makes it a heart-healthy option.

Keep nuts as a snack. Almonds, cashews, and pistachios are all relatively low-calorie nuts at approximately 160 calories per ounce. These options also contain between 5-6g of protein in the same serving size as well as beneficial fiber, making them a great protein-rich snack that’s much healthier for you than something sugary and processed.

  • Avoid nuts coated in salts or packaged/roasted in oils. Raw or dry roasted nuts are the best options for maximizing protein while minimizing calories.
