Hello, friends, I am Sheela Suhag Seharawat, Mentor Diet Clinic. We have been in this field for eleven years, meeting different kinds of people with a different kind of disease. Today, I’m going to discuss a healthy diet plan for students.
Jaise jo college going hai ya school going hai. Maximum parents ko bhi dikat aati hai ki unko kya khana chahiye ya bacho ko bhi nahi samajh mein aata ki unko kya apni daily routine life mein include karna chahiye. Toh uske liye mein aap ko kuch points batana chahoongi. Jaise hume sabse pehle students ko ek habit hoti hai ki morning time mein jaldi mein hote hai, jald baazi mein hote hai toh unka breakfast skip ho jata hai. So don’t skip your breakfast, have a healthy breakfast because aap ka sabse ek main meal breakfast ho jata hai kyunki uske baad ho sakta hai because of classes or because of aap ka busy schedule, lunch skip kar sakta ho but still breakfast pe aapko dhyaan dena hai. Agar aap healthy breakfast loge then the whole day you feel more active and more energetic, aap apne study pe concentrate kar sakte ho. Toh hume breakfast zaroor lena chahiye.
Second thing, try to include more variety in your food. Kya hota hai ki agar aap ek he type ki food lete ho toh uss mein humare nutrients itne healthy way se nahi ho pati. Toh aap jitni bhi variety include karoge apne food mein, utni he aap ko nutrients jyada milenge. Jaise aap more of fruits ke bajai, ek apple ya do apple ke bajai aap one apple, anar, plus seasonal fruits aap include kar sakte ho. Four to five different types of fruits every day aap ko include karna hai.
Next thing is that being a student hume stress hota hai, chahe woh studies ka ho ya woh marks ka ho. Toh use fight karne ke liye hume kabhi bhi kissi bhi junk food ka sahara nahi lena chahiye. Jaise habit hoti hai ki jaise he stress hoye hum ek chocolate le liya, chalo hum ek pastry khaane chale jaate hai ya patties le lete hai. Un cheezon ko hume avoid karna chahiye. Bajai ke hum uss time pe apne paas koi bhi handy healthy snacks agar aap apnea as paas rakh sakte ho. Jaise apne bag mein humesha carry a fruit so that kuch bhi aap ko iss type ki tension lage or you want to eat something, go for healthy snacks. Jaise diet chocolates rakh liya aap ne ya phir aap ne koi fruit rakh liya or if you are outside somewhere then go for some liquids jaise aap ne kuch lassi le liya. Yeh cheezein aap ke liye best hai.
Aur being a student aap ko concentration ki zaroorat hai toh uss ke liye aap ko liquid ke upar more concentrate karna hai. Jitna aap paani intake karoge utna he aap ka concentration, studies ke upar jyada concentrate kar paoge. Toh hume liquid jyada lena chahiye plus iss se aap apne aap ko dehydration se bhi baccha sakta hai. And hume anti-oxidants jyada chahiye toh uss ke liye aap fruits and vegetables aap apne diet mein jydada include kar sakte ho. Aur ek hota hai ki chalo hume kuch, as a student, hume kuch acha aur interesting bhi chahiye kyunki dil se toh hum hai he bacche, toh aap apne diet mein hafte mein ek cheat day zaroor rakho jaise poore week ka aap ko jo khaane ka dil kar raha hai, craving ho raha hai woh aap un dino mein kar sakte ho. Isse aap weekday pe apne diet ko healthy diet mein include kar sakte ho. Atleast hafte mein ek ya do din you can eat whatever you want to eat.
Being a student aap ko aisa nahi hai ki aap ko sirf meetha khaana hai, uske badle aap jo over sweet things include karte ho un cheezon ko hume avoid karna chahiye. Plus caffeinated ya aap ke junk food ke upar hume restrict karna chahiye kyunki who sab cheezein aap ko obesity ke taraf leke jayengi jo ki aap ke health ke liye theek nahi hai. And ek common feature hota hai skipping meals ki chalo humare paas time nahi hai, hum yeh skip kar dete hai, lunch skip kar dete hai ya dinner skip kar dete hai, don’t do this because ye automatically aap ke jo concentration hai, mind hai, uss par impact daalega. Aap meal skip karne ke bajai aap small meals in small intervals lo. Toh skip karne ki aadat aap ek dum apni schedule se nikalni hogi. Yeh kuch aap ke liye tips the.

Hello. I am Dr Sheela Suhag Seharawat, Mentor Diet Clinic. I have been in this field since eleven years meeting a different kind of people with different kind of medical issues. Today I’m going to discuss a few topics jaise logon ko tension hoti hai ki summer mein hume kya food stuff include karni chahiye jisse we stay fit and healthy.
So uske liye mein aapko kuch points batana chahoongi. Jaise sabse pehle summer ka naam aate he humare dimaag mein aata hai liquids. So we have to be particular about liquid intake. Aap ko paani intake jitna ho sake increase karna hoga, ten to twelve glasses intake karna hoga, jaise aap dehydration se bach sake. Summer aane par hume kuch bhi khaane par bloated sa feel hota hai ya hum heavy feel karte hai. Toh jo bhi hum meal lete hai hume dhyaan rakhna chahiye ki who light ho aur nutritive ho. Hume fried food avoid karna chahiye kyunki fried food heat generate karta hai jisse aapko aur jyada heat lagti hai. Toh hume light meals in small intervals include karna chahiye. Kuch logon ko lagta hai ki hume chilled water intake karni chahiye but woh avoid karna chahiye. Hume lagta hai ki chalo hum ekdum se thanda paani pee rahe hai toh who hume kaafi cooling effect de raha hai but hume iss cheez ko avoid karna chahiye kyunki who aapko sirf kuch time ke liye aapko cooling effect de raha hai par who andar jaake aap ke blood vessels ko constrict karta hai jisse aapke body se jo heat bahar nikalni chahiye woh usko thora stop kar deta hai. Hume ekdum se chilled liquid ya jyada thanda paani avoid karna chahiye. Plus hume aerated drinks jisko hum cold drinks bolte hai aur caffeinated things, chai coffee, ko humare diet mein thora restrict karna chahiye because isse aapke body mein dehydration ke chances jyada hote hai kyunki who aapka diuretic work karta hai. Isiliye hume cold drink aur caffeinated things, chai coffee, kum se kum karna chahiye.
Second thing, hum iss cooling ke liye jow ka paani include kar sakte hai. Jow is really good for summer time because of aapke body se water retention bhi nikalta hai aur aapko cooling effect deta hai. Hume thori jo fatty things hai, fried things hai, sweets hai, wo hume apne diet mein thora kum karna dena chahiye. Aap one teaspoon tulsi seeds agar apne diet mein include kar sakte ho. Liquid ke upar sprinkle karke use karke you can use so that is very good in summer jo ki aapko cooling effect dega.
Yeh kuch points the aap ke liye, for further queries you can just connect with us via Lybrate, you can contact via phone, call us, or you can visit us at Diet Clinic, Sushantlok.read more

Usme aapko kya cheezein dekhna hai, diet mein kya kya cheezein include karna chahiye jo uric acid ko kam kar sakta hai.
Sabse pehle aur important factor aapke uric acid ke liye water intake. Aap jitna bhi water intake karoge apne daily basis pe utna hi aapka uric acid kam hoga. Uske liye I will suggest go for minimum 10-12 glasses of water per day jisse ki aapke toxins bhi bahar nikalte hai aur toxins ke sath sath aapka uric acid bhi bahar nikalta hai body se. Toh, paani jitna peeyoge aapke liye utna better hoga. Uric acid mein aap kuch fruits include kar sakte ho jo ki aap ke uric acid ke level ko kam karne ke liye helpful hoga jaise ki cherries and strawberries kyunki inse kya hoga ki inka nature hota hai anti-inflammatory, ye aapke body mein jitna jayega ye aapke body ke pain ko kam karega aur aap ka uric acid ke wajah se jo inflammation ho raha hai usko kam karega.
Second thing, citrus things or you can say rich in vitamin C. Jitna bhi foods stuffs aapke vitamin C mein rich hote jaise amla, lemon, guava wo kaafi faidemand sidd rahega toh aap apne daily diet routine mein include kar sakte ho. And, apple is also very important, plus apple cider vinegar, ye bhi aapko apne diet mein include karna chahiye agar aap uric acid ke patient ho. Uric acid patients ko vegetables, soup zarur include karna chahiye jo ke aapke sath sath water intake ko bhi pura karta hai aur plus kuch anti-oxidants bhi aapke body mein jayege. Especially aap include kar sakte ho carrot, beetroot and cucumber. Uric acid patients ko I will suggest agar aap 1 teaspoon flax seeds aap zaroor use kar sakte ho, that is really beneficial.
So, I will suggest agar daily routine pe aap 1 spoon flax seeds overnight soak karke aap include kar sakte ho wo aap ke uric acid ke level ko kam karne mein help karega. Uric acid ke patient ko dhayan rakhna chahiye ke aap jo chai aur coffee le rahe ho toh kam se kam uska intake karo because tea is a rich source of uric acid. Toh aap din mein jitni baar chai avoid kar sakte ho, wo better otherwise one tea per day is more than enough. And, paani ka intake jitna karoge aapke liye utna hi beneficial hai. Toh, ye the kuch points uric acid patients ke liye jo aapko apne daily routine mein rakhne hai.

We all know about magnesium as a mineral, but what most individuals do not know is the fact that it is a very important mineral for our bodily health. Magnesium is involved with more or less 300 complex metabolic processes in our body, thus earning the title of ‘master mineral’.
Here is a list of reasons why magnesium holds an important place in our body.
It is responsible for transportation of calcium across cell membranes. As such, it helps calcium get into the bone matter. Like we all know, magnesium is anti-inflammatory. It helps in waiving conditions mentioned below:
So magnesium deficiency can definitely cause numerous problems in the human body. This element works in our body at a cellular level. It is important to have a check up done with the doctor to ensure the magnesium level, however, a simple a blood test cannot determine the presence or absence of it. Here are a few signs that might suggest that an individual is suffering from magnesium deficiency.
- A lot of calcium deficiency which means brittle bones
- Very poor heart health
- A lot of unnecessary weakness
- Very frequent muscle cramps at unusual situations
- Tremors, nausea and unnecessary anxiety
- High blood pressure and type 2 diabetes
- Difficulty in swallowing the food
- Poor memory
- Lots and lots of useless confusion
Although individuals with magnesium deficiency suffer from these symptoms, it is not necessary that any individual suffering from such symptoms might have magnesium deficiency. So, the only way to improve magnesium amount in the body is by changing your diet and including magnesium rich foods or supplementing your food with magnesium-based food products.
Magnesium overdose is close to impossible and so many would not check their magnesium intake. However, consuming too much of anything can never be a good idea. Excessive magnesium intake might end up causing the following issues:
- Irregular heartbeats in individuals
- Slow breathing
This excess amount of magnesium in the body might be due to the fact that not all supplements can be easily absorbed by the body. So it is a better idea to eat inexpensive food to keep the magnesium levels at par with the bodily requirements.
Here is a list of items that can relieve the deficiency symptoms of low magnesium.
Health benefits of Vitamin K
Vitamins are essential micronutrients which the body requires, though in small amounts, for optimal health. These chemicals play crucial roles, for instance, vitamin K is essential for optimal blood clotting process. It also has multiple other benefits. More details about the functions, benefits and sources are listed below.
- Vitamin K is actually a group and has K1, K2, and K3. The functions and benefits accordingly will depend on the actual chemical being referred to.
- These are fat soluble vitamins and therefore absorption is better when something fatty is eaten along with it
- Vitamin K1 or phyloquilline reaches the liver and is essential for blood clotting. Reduced levels of vitamin K can lead to uncontrolled bleeding, but this is very rare in adults. Newborns can have this problem, and therefore, it is common to give them a one shot of vitamin K injection.
- Vitamin K2 is produced by gut bacteria and reaches blood vessel walls and bones. It prevents hardening and calcification of arteries, which is the main cause of heart disease.
- It helps in improving calcium and other mineral concentration in the bones and makes the matrix strong. It can be used in osteoporosis to reverse and control bone loss. It can also be used to heal fractured bones.
- It slows the growth of cancer cells and can be used to stabilise cancer. It has been shown to improve multiple forms including hepatocellular, prostate, colon, and oral cancers.
- It is beneficial in controlling Alzheimer’s disease and improve memory loss in ageing people
- It improves insulin action and therefore prolongs onset of type 2 diabetes
- It has been shown to have antioxidant properties (as most other vitamins) and also helps in reducing toxin buildup
- It is good for skin health and can help control bruising and dermatitis
Vitamin K is found naturally in many foods and the daily dose required for an adult is about 120 to 150 mcg/day. Therefore supplementation is usually not required.
Leafy green vegetables including spinach, okra, cabbage, beans broccoli, and asparagus
- Fermented foods like yoghurt
- Soybean in all forms including cooking medium. Japanese diet uses boiled, fermented soybean called natto, which contains tremendous amount of vitamin K
- Nuts, such as cashews, almonds, walnuts, are a good source
- Strawberries, grapes, prunes, and apples
- Seafood such as salmon and shrimp contain good amount to control heart attack and stroke.
- Meat (duck, beef, chicken, and lamb)
Supplements are to be avoided, especially I pregnant and/or nursing mothers and people with a history of stroke, heart disease, heart attack, blood clotting problems.
'Eat healthy food items like fruits, green leafy vegetables, salad etc...' - We have always been hearing this from our elders about how a healthy body is the key to a healthy mind. Trying to define health in a sentence is possible, but not justifiable because it is an umbrella term for a lot of aspects of our life. Being healthy is that state of our existence where we are happy and contented and are at the epitome of our fitness.
Life is too short to fret over things that make us unhappy, so taking decisions that would make us contented mentally and physically is the first step to attaining a healthy lifestyle. Now, one could easily start a debate here stating how eating unhealthy food or indulging in unhealthy habits also make people happy. Yes, they do, but that is a momentary gratification and with one single life, it is essential to think long-term.
Let's review some tips that could help an individual fall right on track if he/she wants to jumpstart their healthy lifestyle:
- Eating healthy food items should not feel or look like restriction. It should be a mentality, a lifestyle rather than being a meaningless difficult regimen.
- In order to avoid unhealthy snacking, it would be a good idea to keep those kind of foods away from the visual arena.
- It is not necessary to entirely cut off the love for sweets. It would be great to eat strategic sweets like dark chocolates to fulfil the cravings and not feel guilty about it.
- Carrying homemade lunch is a very good idea to keep oneself away from unhealthy restaurant food. The best part about this is that a lot of money is saved.
- Proper strategies can definitely get us going. For example, the veggies we eat do not necessarily need to be tasteless. In fact, adding some spices or sauces (made from vinaigrette and different seasonings) can not only make the food taste great but also help bring out the innovations inside us.
- One great way we can keep ourselves motivated is by talking about the dietary plans and goals with a friend and discussing the major healthy lifestyle changes that have already been taken care of.
- Keeping a journal about the progress and also rewarding oneself on reaching small goals are amazing ways to keep going.
There are numerous tips for a healthy lifestyle, but one important advice is to avoid alcohol and also other addictive substances like nicotine (which means smoking cigarettes).
There may be numerous reasons behind infertility in men and women. The main symptom of the disease is the inability to get pregnant despite a year of unsafe intercourse. With the latest advancements in technology, it, however, is no more incurable. You can visit an experienced doctor to get the problem resolved.
Today, olive oil is known as one of the healthiest oils for cooking food because of its low level of saturated fats. Olive oil is also said to be able to aid in weight loss, reduce cholesterol, lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, slow down the ageing process and protect against certain types of cancer. However, not all types of olive oil are the same. Olive oil is extracted by crushing olives and is categorised on the basis of the type of pressing, acidity levels and extent of processing undergone.
- Extra virgin olive oil: This refers to oil produced by the first ‘pressing’ of olives. This oil is extracted using only mechanical or other physical means and does not involve the use of heat or chemicals. The only processing is subjected to is washing, decanting, centrifuging and filtering. The maximum acidity level of this oil is 0.8%. Extra virgin olive oil has no added flavours or aroma and is said to have a superior taste.
- Virgin olive oil: This is the second grade of olive oil. It has slightly higher level of acidity than extra virgin olive oil. It may seem to have a slight flavour imperfection as compared to the earlier oil. This is most commonly used type of olive oil.
- Refined olive oil: Oil that is produced by subsequent pressings of the remaining olive flesh is known as refined olive oil. It has a lighter colour and is less viscous as compared to virgin olive oil. Unlike virgin olive oil, refined olive oil is bleached and deodorised. It may also be mixed with a little virgin olive oil. This type of oil has the same levels of monosaturated fat, but has very little antioxidants. It can be used for most of the preparation methods like stir fry, saute, light cooking, etc.
- Olive pomace oil: The crushed flesh and pits left over from the extraction of olive oil is known as pomace. This may further be used to extract oil known as pomace oil. Pomace oil is an inferior oil that may be mixed with olive oil to improve its taste and texture. It can be used for deep frying
- Unfiltered olive oil: As the name suggests, the unfiltered olive oil contains bits of olive flesh. While this may enhance the flavour of the oil, it also causes a sediment to be formed at the bottom of the bottle. This sediment may become rancid over time and lower the shelf life of the oil. Unfiltered olive oil should ideally be used within 6 months of being bottled.
Apart from the above, there are a number of other types of olive oil such as early or late harvest olive oil, hand picked olive oil, single estate olive oil and flavoured oil. Olive pomace oil, however, is considered best for Indian style of cooking as it has high smoking point.
