Dt. Esha Singhal is the best dietitian I have come across. Her way of treating is very scientific and professional. I had enrolled for weight loss program with her and got a good diet chart where I need not to starve myself, instead I can eat healthy and balanced diet. I have also consulted from other dietitians but didn't be able to follow as they ask me to starve and gave me a very tough diet chart which was very difficult to follow. But this is very easy to follow as Esha has provided me with a wide variety so i will definitely follow this diet chart..

The scorching summer is back, the heat is on and the evil sun blotting high temperatures to the highest level of mercury, summer seems to completely drain us out. Temperatures have been sizzling high and humidity levels have mounted to between 70 and 80 per cent. Every one of us feels dehydrated and low on energy in such a climate.
Hydration is essential for every individual- "Drinking throughout the day in general is important, too. It's just as important for someone who is working at a computer all day [to drink water], as it is for somebody who is running a marathon." But it's not just water that hydrates you. As with every season, the nature has provided us with a surfeit of foods to help us keep cool in the warm months to come. Foods that are available this season naturally contain the properties our bodies need to stay cool and hydrated during the warm months of summer.
Our body needs cooling foods that will balance our diet and keep our energy level stable.
Here are 10 best cooling foods for the sizzling hot summer.
Fresh Fruits: It is important to minimize the intake of dried fruits and increase the intake of fresh foods. Fresh fruits are nutritious and refreshing. Many seasonal fruits like mangoes, litchi, water melons, strawberry and jamuns are available in summer. These fruits are juicy and can be had as snacks to beat the heat. 'Seasonal fruits like water melon have high water content and higher cooling properties that help to beat the heat.'
Curd/ Yogurt: Curd is a delicious coolant. Curd is excellent as it increases friendly bacteria in the gut and improves digestion and boosts immunity. You can make delicious - chilled spicy buttermilk, a glass of lassi or chachh and raita. You can also add fruits to the curds to make a lip-smacking and wholesome dessert or prepare smoothie during the summer season.
Coconut Water: The more you consume nariyal pani, the less you will have summer problems .An inexpensive coconut is full of health benefits and has wonderful cooling properties. It composes many naturally occurring bioactive enzymes, simple sugars, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals which help to keep the body well hydrated. In addition to that, there is evidence to suggest that coconut water has cancer fighting and anti-ageing properties as well.
Cucumber: This summer food is very rich in water and effective in providing cooling effect to the body. This crunchy vegetable costs little, has lots of fibre that can help keep constipation at bay. It can make each of your bites crunchier and help you stay cool as a cucumber!
Raw Mango: In the summer season, raw mango is a special fruit and is extremely good to prevent sunstrokes and weakness. Raw mango juice also known as aam panna can help balance electrolytes in the body. You can also have raw mango in any form like adding it in bhel, salads or making a dish out of it.
Mint: Mint is a simple, easily available, inexpensive herb which you can add to your curd to make pudina raita or have it in the form of chutneys besides using it in dips. The best thing about it is that you can grow it in a small pot at home for your use. Though it does not help bring down the body temperature, we love it because of the delicious and refreshing taste.
Green Veggies: You can stock your refrigerator with a wide variety of summer vegetables like onions, brinjal, bottle gourd, celery, tomatoes and cucumber as they are very nutritious and low in calories. 'It is important to have seasonal vegetables as the summer vegetable contains antioxidant properties that help to minimize skin damage caused due to exposure to sun.'
Onions: Onions have amazing cooling properties. You can add it to your curries, dips, raitas, salads and chutneys to help keep you cool. The red onions, in particular, are very rich in quercetin, which is a natural anti-allergen. Having lots of onions can provide you protection against sunstroke.
Lime Water: Citrus has an incredible cooling effect on the body and also promotes detoxification. Everyone knows how important it is to drink a ton of water every day, but plain ol' H2O can be boring. Time and time again experts recommend adding lemon to your water not only for its skin and immune-boosting benefits, but because it actually encourages you to drink more water overall.
Ice Creams: summers can never be fun without ice creams. Ice candies or those tempting sundaes bring back the child in you. Add some fresh fruits to them to make them sound less sinful and indulge your taste buds once in a while. Though you have the option of heading for the nearest ice cream parlour, you can try making some at home as well. Kids will love you for it!

As years passes so fast. In no time, those bad habits that you have now can do big damage to your mind and body later on. Whether it's skipping breakfast or eating too fast, drinking a little too much (and too often) or spending way too many hours planted in front of the TV so you have to pay for them later.
Poor health also means more time lost at work, less quality recreational time, and even shorter lifespan. But in this modern day, people have a mindset that takes good health for granted. One can suffer from years of aches and pains, and would just ignore them, and then feel so surprised when one finds out one has developed a serious chronic disease. Majorities would usually leave their health to the hand of the doctors, relying on the advanced medical technology, medical drugs when they fall sick. We have the choice to live a healthy lifestyle, but many choose to live just for today, enjoy life, and most of the time end up suffering in pain with chronic diseases and illnesses.
There are many habits prevalent today which can lead to many health problems. It is important to understand what these are and how the issues can be addressed. We should work on putting an end to the bad habits now, so you don't pay for them later.
Common Unhealthy Lifestyle Practices
Lifestyle has an impact on whether you lead a healthy life or not. Because of the importance it plays, it is important to identify the basic unhealthy habits of a typical lifestyle. There are many factors contributing to the degeneration of health among many people today. We live in a terribly polluted world. We are all exposed to thousands of toxins and chemicals every day at work, home, in the air, and in the food that we eat and water we drink. In addition, we are eating more processed and canned foods than ever before in human history and we constantly abuse our bodies with pharmaceuticals. We found fast food at every corner. And video games and TV have led the majority of teens to spend countless hours in front of the television instead of playing outdoor games or doing physical activity. The result of all of these are overweight and obese and many chronic diseases.
1. Smoking and Drinking:
Nicotine is an addictive substance which is found in cigarettes. That is what makes it so hard for people to quit smoking. When they just stop smoking, there is high chance that they would experience some withdrawal symptoms, which means that the body will be craving for the nicotine. That's why there are so many smokers who fail to quit.
This would top any list of unhealthy lifestyle choices. Smoking has numerous negative effects on the body. It can cause many diseases like Emphysema, lungs cancer, the throat and the mouth diseases, birth defects and other ailments of the respiratory system are direct results of smoking. The warnings on cigarette packages were placed to warn people about the real dangers caused by smoking. The smoke produced from the burning tobacco leaves of cigarettes contains thousands of chemicals and a majority of those which are harmful to the body.
Combining too much eating with no or little exercise is a recipe for disaster. In fact, the lack of exercise is one of the leadingcauses of early death. Lack of physical exercise also weakens our muscles and exposes them to physical injuries. Also, irregular or no exercising regularly worsens the immune system and drive our body towards becoming sick frequently.
An unhealthy lifestyle, which does not consist of regular workouts, is the major cause of bad cholesterol. People, who do not exercise for some time, never remain fit and healthy. Due to improper blood circulation which occurs because of unhealthy lifestyles, the heart's health never remains in good condition.
3. False Eating:-
Eating too much leads us to obesity, hypertension, diabetes etc. On the contrary, eating too less will deprive of nutrients and will ultimately affect the immune system.
Another major source of toxic exposure is the foods we eat. Herbicides, pesticides and fungicides are sprayed on our foods while they are growing and after harvest to prevent spoilage and improve marketability. Approximately 90% of the drugs given to animals have not been approved by the government. Half of the antibiotics produced in America annually are given to animals has a matter of routine. 60 to 99% of the cattle slaughtered in this country were given synthetic hormones, primarily estrogens during their growth. It is no longer a question that antibiotic resistance, hormone exposure, and toxin exposure are having a negative effect on our health.
Poor dietary choices will impact your health. Likewise, it is very difficult, if not impossible to lose weight and keep it off when one option for an unhealthy diet. Processed foods and junk foods are, in short, a killer and they are reducing people's lifespan. Processed foods have a high in fats and salt content and are filled with preservatives and colouring and other bad chemicals.
4. Taking too much stress and lack of sound sleep:
Stress is a natural body reaction. Our lives are already becoming stressful and there are two primary stresses - Workplace tension and Family Tension. Now, I have not seen anyone who takes the family tension to the workplace. But we all have accustomed of bringing the work tension to home which ruins the family harmony. In principal, our family environment should sooth the senses and helps us ease out the workplace worries. However, once we start bringing the outer stress to our home, we do not have a place to escape.
It is during sleep that the body repairs the cells that have been damaged through the day of activity. Obviously, it is also the time that the body gets its rest. But some people do not give that much importance to it as they should. If you compromise with sound sleep, you feel sluggish and weak.
