Hi lybrate-user to gain weight you need to combine a balanced eating pattern with regular physical activity. You should be eating at least 6 small meals a day, rather than sticking to 3 square meals. You could divide it as 3 main meals and 3 snacks. You need to be eating every 2-3 hours. Space out snacks during the day so you don't spoil your appetite. Bread, cereal, rice, whole wheat, dalia and pasta: biscuits, and corn-bread are good sources of carbohydrates. Fruits: dried fruits, fruit nectars, and large quantities of fresh fruits vegetables: include, potatoes, peas, corn in your diet. Meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts: beef, pork, lamb, poultry, salmon, omelets, nuts, peanut butter, kidney beans, chickpeas will help you gain weight. Include dairy products like milk, yogurt, and cheese: milk, fruited yogurts, hard cheeses, ice cream, puddings, custards, milkshakes. -nuts and seeds make a healthy option for snacks. -roasted channas and peanuts are good -peanut butter on the sandwiches are a great mid-meal choice. -you must know that cereals actually contain some healthy calories. Stay hydrated: drinking plenty of water and other fluids like juices, milk, soups etc, will work in your favour. Do not drink water before a meal and in between the meal as it may make you lose your appetite, thus calorie intake suffers. Sleep: at least 8 hours of sound sleep is a must. Since your body is actually building up muscles, while you rest. Weight gainers have long term side effects.

Mix them well and take 1/2 teaspoon (3-5 gm) of mixture daily after meal. Or take 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper (kali mirch), 1/ 2 tea spoon of jeera (cumin), 2-3 slice of ginger. Boil it in one glass of water for 2-3 minutes. Drink 5-10 teaspoons (15-20 ml) in morning and evening for strong digestive system. Or you can take amla powder 1 teaspoon with water for strong digestion. 2. Take a diet rich with proteins and fats.

So you should sleep for 6-8 hours daily. 5. Avoid soft drinks, western fast food (burgers, french fries, pizza etc. They disturb your digestion. 6. You can try protein powders like endura mass, milk powder, soya protein. And creatinine for weight gain by taking 1 tea spoon added in milk once a day.

Hi Dr. you r very good. I feel pain on my left knee. Si please gv some advice and oblize me. Thanking you.
Knee joint is very complex joint made by 3 bones - femur, tibia, fibula and knee cap - patella. Several ligaments, cartilage and menisci are covered all around. So pain in knee joint may be due to several reasons. In your case the pain may be due to some internal injury like cartilage etc for which you are not aware or there may be knee arthritis as it is very common these days or may be due to deficiency of vitamins or uric acid. So in general I would advise you to please go for proper investigation so that the reason can be diagnosed. In the mean time to get relief from pain and stiffness please follow the physio measures: precautions- 1. Avoid prolong standing. Standing on one leg or running for time being if its painful. 2. Take care while bending your knees, it should not directly strain your joint. 3. Avoid heavy weight lifting. 4. Wear shoes with good arch support, do not wear high -healed shoes. 5. Use the correct positions during activities so that you do not strain your muscles. 6. Try to change your sitting position every 15 min so that it should not give strain on your knees. 7. Avoid sitting on floor with both knees bending. 8. Take diet rich in calcium like milk, dairy products, banana etc which will enhance your calcium and gives you strength. Treatment - 1. Use of cold or hot packs which ever suits you - apply ice or hot pack to the painful area and massage for near about 10 minutes. Make a habit for doing atleast twice a day initially. 2. After this using your thumb massage your knee area gently. Exercises include: 1. Quads isometrics. 2. Hamstrings isometrics. 3. Slr - straight leg raising 4. Bridging do not do single leg bridging if pain is very severe. 5. Knee bending lying or supine position. 6. Heel raising 7. Step ups 8. Lunge 9. Squatting you can do the above treatment plan it will give you pain relief. But if you face severe pain while doing the exercises then stop doing and apply some talcum over knee, with thumb massage your knee area slightly and gently. Get well soon. Good luck.

You should take Alfa Tonic homeo tonic thrice a day for one month. It will be better if you tell me about your weight, height and daily routine diet so that proper medicine can be prescribed.

6 Food Combinations That Can Be Harmful

MD , MBBS
General Physician, Aligarh
6 Food Combinations That Can Be Harmful
Hogging on what comes to your platter affects your body like nothing else. All foods have different characteristics and what a lot of people don?t know is that some foods cannot be paired with each other. Foods are either acidic or basic. And if both the types are combined, it will make a sludge in your system which will rot inside for hours or days. The harm it causes is invisible, but irreversible.

Here are some hazardous combinations you must avoid.

1) Proteins and carbohydrates or starch - Proteins esp. Red meats should never be eaten with starch or carbohydrates, while it is okay to have white meat with carbohydrates. Mixing proteins and starch in a single meal slows the digestion process.

2) Fruits with other foods - Most fruits do not mix well with vegetables, carbohydrates, other fruits or fats and therefore must be eaten either on an empty stomach or separately from other foods. Sub-acid fruits like apple, apricot, kiwi, grapes, lichee, mango, papaya, peach, pear, plum etc. Have an approximate digestion time of 30-40 minutes. Acid fruits like blackberry, sour grapes, cranberries, cherries, lime, orange, pineapple etc. Have an approx digestion time of 20-30 minutes.

3) Milk and other foods - Milk does not go well with any of the other food types. If it is combined with anything, it slows the process of digestion.

4) Aerated drinks and other foods - Carbonated drinks or their diet counterparts, both are equally harmful, esp. When consumed with your regular meal. Plus, the added baggage of sugar that goes in this can be harmful for our system in the long run.

5) Desserts right after meals - Sweets are tempting right after a meal but it is advisable to space them out and wait for an hour or two before you enjoy the dessert. This is because sweets don't gel well with other food groups.

6) Alcohol and Dinner ? Alcohol slows the digestion process of food esp. Indian food which is usually greasy. If you cannot avoid it, stick to a glass of wine maybe, preferably red wine. And to take care, you can drink a cup of green tea before and after drinking the wine. The green tea will cleanse your system of the toxins.

lybrate-user, Your thyroid test result is normal. There is no need to consider you have either hyperthyroidism or hypo. For hyperthyroidism to be considered TSH levels have to be lower than 0.1 mU/L. So do not worry. In fact looking at your weight and height your BMI is 25.01 kgs / M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2), so you need to exercise daily and reduce a few kgs. Your ideal body weight should be about 55 kgs. Thanks.

Dear, if you tired very fast and feeling weakness. Then you will definitely recover from weakness by following these very useful tips. * you should take proper balanced diet first. That means you have to take vegetables, milk, chapattis or rice, butter / cream, cereals (daals) or cheese every day. Very important thing, do not miss or skip your meals at any cost and take meals on time. * proper 6-8 hours sleep is very important. If your sleep is less than 6 hours, then you feel tired very early. So complete your sleep. * do breathing execises daily in morning & evening. Just sit down in peaceful place, close your eyes, take deep and long breaths in and out. Do it atleast for 10-15 minutes daily. You can also do pranayams like anulom vilom for better results. *take a walk, in first walk normally for 10-15 minutes for 15 days. You can do it on treadmill also. * you can take ashvagandha churn of baidyanath 1 teaspoon with milk daily for 2 months atleast to get your strength back. * check out your haemoglobin level in 3 months, if it is low you get tired early. So get treatment of low haemoglobin (anemia). If you have any disease like asthma /diabetes / hypertension, then get complete treatment of them. * avoid all fast foods and habit of smoking or drinking. You surely get great strength and recover from weakness by following these important things.

Hello,Homoeopathic medicines are less invasive and have more herbal approach towards gaining the weight. There are a number of homoeopathic medicines, which treat the root cause behind the body’s inability to gain weight or bulk up. 1. Take alfalfa tonic(wsi), 2 – 2 tsp. Thrice a day, half an hour before meals. 2. Calcarea phos 200, 5 drops , once in aweek , morning empty stomach for 2 weeks. 3. Take eggs, milk, butter, bananas, potatoes, mangoes, figs, oats, soyabean and dry fruits. 4. do light exercises regularly to keep your body active. These homoeopathic medicines and dietary addition will increase your appetite and give your metabolism a healthy boost. ***If you do not get results with this treatment then please revert me i will suggest you to go through some tests.*** Take care.

Cheese comes in many delicious varieties, so you can pair it with your favorite dish. It has all the nutritional benefits of milk products. Most of the cheese varieties contain high amount of fat, which is beneficial for those people who are trying to gain weight. One serving of cheese can add 69 calories, as it is made from concentrated milk that provides proteins, calcium, cholesterol and fat to the body. • You can also try goat cheese with eggs and Parmesan on top of asparagus.

Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your trouble. I have a few suggestions for you: (1) take regular breaks (every half an hour) of 5 minutes. This will help you in concentrating better. (2) try to combine your studies with something that interests you. For example, try to remember in the form of a story. (3) treat your self to something that you like after a good dedicated study session. For example, you may treat yourself to your favorite movie, tv show of an ice-cream (whatever works for you). (4) try to meditate (for at least half an hour daily) (5) improve your physical healthy. This will ensure a good mental health and increase your capacity to focus. To improve your physical health, you should improve your diet, exercise and daily routine. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.
