Patient Review Highlights
Finding the right dietician is always a big deal. For me, its more important to find the one who would track me regularly and keep me motivated. Also, for those who doesn't stick to the meal plan like me, Dr.Asritha is of great help. She comes up with simple recipes that actually let u enjoy every step of your diet. It soon became my favorite way of eating, leaving behind my boring unhealthy traditional eating habits. She knows exactly what my body wanted to keep me healthy. She is not only easy to talk to but also quiet strict. I need that for a reality check about my progress. She clearly explained me what kind of exercises suit me and what are useless. If you want to get healthy with changes in your eating and work out habits, I recommend Dr.Asritha. She is genuine genius in her field. - Highly stressed out female researcher struck in software industry ;)
Asritha helped me lose 10 kgs in a span of 3 months. Her diet plans are very comprehensive and easy to follow. Being a working lady, I found the easy and quick recipes a boon for my schedule. She is available anytime for any counselling and advise on social media or phone - very approachable.
Had very good experience with her. She cleared all my doubts related to food and nutrition. Very approachable. In a span of 40 days, have lost 4.8% body fat and improved muscle mass by about 2%. My sugars have come under control. I am glad to have consulted her.
I had pleasure of meeting Dt. Asritha on 30th March 2018, for weight loss.I lost 15kgs in 4 months.
Best nutritionist in the city.
Colour plays a unique role in daily life. There is color everywhere. Our day starts with bright yellow rays of the sun, trees welcome the day with vibrant green light. There is color everywhere from the dress we wear to the place we live in. Why not our meals be colourfull. A rainbow meal plate not only looks beautiful but also keeps you healthy. Every color carries a specific vibration with it and that will affect our systems (especially endocrine system). In this article, we will discuss in detail about VIBGYOR foods and their effect on our systems.
- Red: It is one of the primary colors. Red color has its effect on adrenal glands. This color has its effect on survival, safety, and tribe. Red foods help to improve immunity as they are rich in vitamin c. Vitamin c also helps to support structures like teeth, bones, and skin. Lycopene is the phytonutrient present in red foods. The color red is obtained to a fruit or vegetable because of this phytonutrient. There are studies that show that lycopene has anti-cancer properties. Examples: watermelon, apples, pomegranates, strawberries, beetroot, red cabbage, red onion etc.
- Orange: It is the color of creativity. Orange has its effect on the reproductive system. It codes for productivity, creativity, and emotions. Orange color foods are rich in beta-carotene. It is also one of the phytonutrients. Beta-carotene helps in cell replication and supports reproductive health. Examples: carrots, orange bell peppers, orange etc.
- Yellow: Yellow connects with one of the five elements of earth that is the fire. Yellow colored foods affect digestive systems and this color codes for power, energy, and transformation. These foods help to control excessive acid production in stomach and aids in the better digestion of foods. Lemon squeezed in water is an excellent tonic for the liver. Examples: lemon, pineapple, banana, ginger etc.
- Green: Green is the color of love. Green colored foods help in proper functioning of the heart. This color codes for love, compassion, and gratitude. Green colored foods are rich in vitamin k which helps in blood clotting, thereby preventing blood loss during any injury. Vitamin k also reduces homocysteine levels in the blood. Homocysteine is one of the contributors to heart diseases. Examples: leafy greens, wheatgrass, kiwi, honeydew melon, pear etc.
- Blue: Blue is the color of truth. Blue foods have an effect on thyroid functioning. This color codes for voice, authenticity, and choice. There are very fewer foods with this color. Blue foods are rich in iodine. Examples: sea plants like noori, kelp, agar, spirulina
- Indigo: It is the color of insight. Indigo colored foods help in brain functioning. This color codes for insight, reflection, and visualization. The phytonutrients present in these foods are called anthocyanins. These foods help in better cognition. There are studies that show that blueberries help in improving cognition. Examples: blueberries, black currants, black apple (kala jamun), blackberries etc.
- Violet: This is a highly spiritual color. The foods rich in this color will affect pineal gland. This color codes for purpose, soul, and connection. White colored fruits and vegetables will have an effect on this system. These foods help in cleansing and maintaining circadian rhythm. Examples: garlic, onion cauliflower, cabbage.
Now we know the importance of color in our food. So, make your plate as colorful as possible to nourish your systems as well as to tap into your senses. Enjoy every color of life. Bring out the child in you to play with colorful food.
Take away points:
1. To begin with, focus on including more than 3 colors in your plate.
2. Track how many colors you are eating in a day and notice the changes happening in your system.
3. Make a note of the color codes and when you dress in particular color notice how you feel.
Symptoms of PMS include moodiness, bloating and headache. All it takes is one symptom to crop up for the whole body to go down. While environmental changes and preventive measures play a crucial role in dealing with this condition, careful choice of food goes a long way in keeping PMS under control. Here is a list of some best and worst food for PMS:
Foods that are Good During PMS:
- Brussels sprouts, Artichokes and Broccoli: These veggies with high fibre content are known to ease bloating. Furthermore, the high water content of these veggies effectively deals with gas, discomfort, and puffiness. The idea is to refrain from foods with high sodium content that only contributes to the suffering. Sulfur-containing vegetables have tremendous health benefits, from maintaining healthy joints to boosting the immune system. Actually they help as anti inflamatory foods to help relieve abdominal and back aches. If a person is gassy and bloting eating high fibre will still worsen the situation. Instead eating soluble fibre foods which is obtained by sauteing the above vegetables is more helpful than raw versions.
- Quinoa, what berry and popcorn: These foods help to deal with a short temper which is a very common occurring of PMS. Some other good effects of a high carb diet such as these include fighting anxiousness, depression and maintain composure. Consuming whole grain on a daily basis also helps to keep the mood cheerful. This happens because of the added secretion of the feel good factor hormone called serotonin.
- Banana: Many women tend to face sleep disturbances before the period sets in. A recent study at the John Hopkins University found that less sleep before the period makes a woman susceptible to cramps and discomfort. Banana contains melatonin. The latter helps the body maintain its natural rhythm.
- Eggs: The cravings during PMs can be very difficult to handle. It is therefore very important to start the day a very healthy breakfast. The right amount of protein and healthy fat present in an egg helps to keep the body energised throughout the day. Scrambled egg and an ounce of chicken is a perfect answer to PMs craving.
Some foods to avoid during PMS:
- Processed fats: Processed fat contains a lot of processed fats, sodium and salt. Processed fats make a woman puffy and increment bloating. Processed foods contain very high protein content that becomes very difficult for the body to process during PMS.
- Sugary foods: Craving for sugary food is pretty normal during PMS. However, too much sugar consumption during PMS fluctuate the blood sugar level. They also aggravate tension and mood swings. The latest study has found that refined sugar can disturb the immune system and creates a lot of fatigue in a woman.
- Caffeine: Restricting caffeine during the period can help prevent the cramps and bloating. Certain caffeine such as coffee, cigarettes and chocolate can aggravate breast tenderness, anxiety, and depression. What's more, they systematically create a craving for sweet and other caffeine-related stuff. A better alternative to caffeine during PMs is herbal and green tea, water and fruit juice.
