I am a diabetic since last 5 years. I am too fat. I tried many medication but nothing worked. Prescribe some medicine for normal daily life.

I gather that you want help for managing obesity. First thing you need to ensure is that your blood sugar remains under check. Eat lots of fibres, avoid fatty food. Exercise daily. If you are morbidly obese, ypu may go for bariatric surgery to reduce weight.

Hi lybrate-user weight problem is one of the most common problems that affect millions of people. Approaching nutritionists and gym instructors for effective weight loss plans are effective fixes for this problem. Strangely, just like weight gain, people do struggle to gain a few pounds. It has been medically proven that being underweight too can cause severe health problems. Usually, people tend to think that following a weight gain diet is completely doable. But that is not completely true. It requires the same amount of control and will power as one would need while following a weight gain diet plan, which recommends the intake of high-calorie foods. The idea of a weight gain diet is to put on healthy weight and steer clear of saturated fats. Let us take a look at a few weight gain foods that could change your lives the natural way. Whole milk milk is an important beverage for the most of us. From a creamy cup of coffee to a healthy bowl of oatmeal/ cereals soaked in milk, there are several ways of enjoying this essential source of nourishment. While a weight gain diet plan would not require you to give up on milk, you will have to switch from fat-free or skim milk to whole milk. It is high in essential nutrients, vitamins and contains healthy calories. One glass of whole fat milk contains 3.25% fat and 150 calories. It nourishes your body and helps you gain weight faster. Cheese if you love cheese, then stick to it. Cheese is rich in calories, healthy nutrients, and vitamins. It supplements your body with enough protein and calcium to build stronger bones. Being a milk product, cheese has a high fat content, which helps to gain weight. Try out different types of cheese and use them in your food for garnishing or as a dip. Butter another essential ingredient that can be included in your diet while on a weight gain regime is butter. It is rich in good saturated fats and nutrients that help you to gain weight faster. Also, powerful fatty acids and vitamins make sure you are in the pink of health always. However, you need to monitor the intake saturated weight gain foods as too much intake could add to cholesterol. So, layer your toasts with some butter and enjoy every bite. Dried fruit and nuts the perfect food items to snack on while on a weight gain diet are wholesome nuts and other dried fruits. Full of nutrients and healthy fats, dried fruits and nuts provide you with essential fiber and vitamins. Add almonds, walnuts, or pecans to your daily diet. Include them in your cereals during breakfast or add them to your salads for a nice crunch. Potatoes carbohydrates are an essential part of your diet when you want to gain weight. The best source of carbohydrates is potatoes. They are rich in fiber, vitamins and proteins too. It is recommended to eat potatoes with their skin, as the skin is a rich source of protein. Add them to your main course or have them as a side dish to ensure healthy weight gain. Eggs eggs make a perfect breakfast item, especially if you are on a weight gain plan. Whisk up an omelet or scrambled egg for a quick meal and get nutrients in a jiffy. Egg yolk is known for the healthy cholesterol and essential nutrients it contains. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids and protein, eggs are the perfect wholesome weight gain foods. Pasta bring an exotic twist to your weight gain diet with some pasta. Rich in fiber, starch and carbohydrates, pasta is the answer to all your underweight issues. Available in many shapes and sizes, pastas can be made in a variety of recipes. Add chicken or vegetables to increase its nutritional properties. Lean red meat good news for meet lovers! you can relish the different preparations of lean red meat while on a weight gain diet. Rich in proteins and other nutrients, red meat adds to your weight faster. It is recommended to opt for lean cuts. So, keep lean red meat on the top of your shopping list the next time you buy weight gain foods. Also read: benefits of drinking hot water peanut butter enjoy your snack times with scrumptious peanut butter toast. Peanut butter is an ideal choice from weight gain foods for people striving to put on weight. It is loaded with fats and protein, adding some healthy calories to your weight. While selecting your peanut butter, make sure it does not contain sugar. It is recommended to opt for more natural or organic peanut butter. Fruits fruits are weight gain foods that are perfect for in-between meals. When following a weight gain regime, one can eat sugar-rich fruits like mangoes, avocados, bananas, and pineapples. Offering you essential nutrients and energy, these fruits are a must-add to your daily diet. Conclusion underweight people can now attain a healthy body by incorporating the above-mentioned food sources in your weight gain diet. They help add good calories to your every day meal plan, keeping you away from health disorders.

Is eating hibiscus flower in morning is good or not. Suggest me the benefits of hibiscus flower.
Dear Lybrate User, In various places around the world, the flowersare eaten cooked, raw, pickled, as a spice, or even as a food dye. The flowers are the most used part of the hibiscus plant in cooking. In China, flower petals are baked in cakes, and in India they are boiled with sugar into a sweet, iced drink. Hibiscus flower is a good antioxidant. Which is good for skin, hairs, for immune system, it lowers blood pressure, lowers high cholesterol and fight cancer. But it has some Side Effects too. Blood Pressure: The health benefits of hibiscus tea include lowering blood pressure (anti-hypertensive property). Therefore, it is not recommended for people who already have low blood pressure. For further information and details you can consult online. Take Care.
