The Healthiest And Unhealthiest Breakfast Food Items!

Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day, no matter which culture you belong to. The age-old saying goes that you should have breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar. Let's look at some of the menu items, which are not considered ideal for breakfast menus on a regular basis along with a few others which are.

Some of the unhealthiest breakfast food items:

  1. Chole bhature or oily pooris: These are favorite items within Indian breakfast menus. However, they are full of oil and saturated fats. Apart from contributing to diabetes and blood pressure, bloating, acidity and heartburn are also common side effects.
  2. Pakoras, samosas or kachoris: Common items which are included in many breakfast and snack menus, these oily fries are major contributors to bad cholesterol, reduce good cholesterol and is are major contributors to obesity.
  3. Sugary cereals: While plain corn flakes are good, sugary cereals have processed sugar and are a no-no for breakfast items as they could cause elevated blood glucose levels and thus cause a host of problems.
  4. Medu vada: While having a medu vada once or twice is alright, having it as a daily breakfast item will add a lot of oil to your diet and so, should be avoided.
  5. Bakery items: Many bakery items such as doughnut, Tiffin cakes and sweet breads usually tend to have a lot of processed sugar, refined flour and additives which can be harmful to your health.

Some healthy breakfast food items:

  1. Idli: This is a staple breakfast item in southern India and is very healthy as it is prepared by steaming rice mixes. However, reduce spicy chutneys or side dishes while consuming idlis as they can be quite bad for health.
  2. Upma: Another export of the south, upma is now loved all over India and the world. Made with suji or rawa and very little oil, this is a great and filling breakfast alternative.
  3. Poha or Chivra pulao: Made from flattened rice flakes, poha, also known as chivda pulao, is a great healthy alternative and should be incorporated in breakfast diets.
  4. Indian veg sandwiches: As long as the bread is whole wheat, this is a very healthy option as it is usually made with vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers and potatoes and also has chutney as the dressing.
  5. Dosa: Another great option from southern India, this is a great breakfast food if the sambar and accompanying dishes are cooked in less oil and have fewer spices.
  6. Khakra: This dish which comes from Gujarat is also a great breakfast item and can also become a low-calorie snack for cravings in between meals.
  7. Protein Shakes: You can also take brekkie breakfast shakes as alterternative to your daily morning breakfast. It is preservative and contains low sugar.

Breakfast gives energy to the body for fulfilling the routine functions. Replace your unhealthy breakfast with these healthier options, and gift yourself good health and energetic mornings.

Is Ghee Healthy And Should You Be Consuming It?

Favourite of most Indian households, ghee is indeed a superfood. Apart from being widely used in Indian cooking, it has also been used as a remedy for cough and cold. Sadly, due to the misconceptions that surround the use of ghee, it is often underutilized. While some are worried that it may make them put on weight, others feel that it is bad for their heart. Little do they know that these misconceptions are not true, and ghee actually has limitless health benefits.

Let us read on to know more about the benefits that ghee has to offer:

  1. Packed with nutrients: Many-a-times, people love the taste of ghee but have struck it off from the diet owing to popular belief that ghee is unhealthy and fattening. However, the opposite of it is actually true and the short-chain fatty acids found in ghee offer several health benefits and keep your gut healthy. Ghee obtained from grass-fed butter consists of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K. Fats present in ghee are free of oxidized cholesterol, trans-fats and hydrogenated oils, thus, the fat present in pure ghee is healthy.
  2. Great for immunity and bone-strengthening: Including ghee in your daily breakfast not only boosts your physical and mental strength but also ensures that your body stays fit and gains the potential to fight against several illnesses. Being a rich source of fat-soluble vitamins, ghee supports the growth and development of bones. It is also known to strengthen your muscles and tendons.
  3. Lowers cholesterol: It is considered as an excellent option for people with high cholesterol levels. Since ghee contains Vitamin K2, it prevents plaque formation in the arteries, which in turn prevents the blockage that may obstruct blood flow and lead to complication. It also increases the level of good cholesterol and lowers the level of bad cholesterol in the blood.
  4. Promotes weight lossAn excellent source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), is known to boost the metabolism which in turn promotes weight loss. It also improves digestion, makes you feel full and increases the oxidation of fat; all of which help in reducing weight.

How to differentiate if the ghee is pure or not?

Ghee is stocked in every Indian household, but the thought of whether it is pure or not often crosses our minds. Adulterated ghee may contain vegetable oils and other greasy elements which are bad for your heart and health. So, here are some methods that can help you check the purity of your ghee at home.

  1. Pure ghee normally melts at body temperature. You can check it by putting a spoon of ghee on your palm if it melts then it is pure if not, it is best to get rid of it.
  2. Pure ghee melts within seconds and turns brown when heated. If the ghee takes longer to melt and appears light yellow in color, it is impure.

It has been established that ghee is indeed good for your health, but only if it is pure. The simple tests mentioned above can help you determine whether the ghee is pure or not. So, eat safe and stay healthy!

Ways To Biohack Yourself For A Better You!

Were you looking for ways to biohack your physical, psychological and spiritual areas? Here is all that you were looking for.

Biohacking is not a rocket science but a do-it-yourself phenomenon which refers to bringing in lifestyle changes on your own. All your conscious actions that make your life healthy and happy.

In this article, the focus is to help you bring some changes in mental, physical and spiritual areas. Of course, you need not do all of them in one go. Take it slow and see what helps you and what modifications you need based on your preference. So let’s go one by one from one area to another:

Physical Area

  • Exercise: Begin your day with exercise. Now that we have a wide range such as aerobics, zumba, yoga, gym, pilates. You may choose the one that interests you the most because if you don’t like it, you procrastinate it all the time. So, go for trials, read, ask your friends, and figure out a way you would like to take it up. It doesn’t have to be at the beginning of your day but anytime you find yourself rocking on the chair for way too long, just stand up and move yourself a little bit. Movement not only keeps you away from feeling tired or lethargic but keeps your brain active.

  • Play frequently: Go back to reminiscing the good old times, when you would wait for Sundays to go to the park and play. How happy it would make you feel and made you spontaneous. Playing gives you a dopamine rush. And if in case if you were one of those indoor players, don’t worry, instead start looking for your board games or video games. It has amazing benefits such as increasing your concentration levels, enhances problem-solving, kills boredom, improves memory and stimulates the growth of cerebral cortex.

  • Add colours to your meals: Adding colours to meals does not mean adding synthetic colours but a wide variety of veggies, fruits, cereals of different colours and varieties in your meals. Why add colours? The reason is simple, each colour has its own benefits for instance beetroot is rich in iron, similarly, eggplant is rich in potassium.

Moving on to the Psychological Area-

  1. Stress: Stress can become debilitating when it comes to the cognitive functioning of any individual. It disrupts your functioning, thus it is essential to control stress. You must have experienced high levels of stress at some point in your life. Prolonged states of high stress can sometimes lead to shutting down. Alongside, it has an adverse effect on the other areas as well such as a decrease in sleep, appetite, processing information, memory to name a few. However, if stress is too low, most often one tends to procrastinate, decreases productivity. Therefore, an optimal level of stress enhances your productivity.
  2. Stop replaying the past: One of the biggest mistakes that you keep doing is replaying the past. When you keep digging into the negative past events and replay it thousand of times, it wounds you. It is essential to pick on the hurts and stop digging deep into them because they will only harm and be of no good to you. Instead, let go of them and reminisce the events from the past which gives you happiness and makes you feel better about who you are.
  3. Positive affirmations: No one will come and tell you that you are doing a good job, you have to take that initiative for yourself because being happy is a do-it-yourself project. And it depends on you how you do it. Make a list of all the good you have done in your day, feel good about yourself. It not only helps in reducing stress but also boosts your self-esteem.

Spiritual Area- 

The spiritual area doesn’t necessarily mean being ritualistic or focussing on a particular religion. It can be anything that gives you strength, grounds you and makes you feel high on your energies.

  1. Meditate: You must be aware of the benefits of meditation on your brain functioning and your body. It helps in healing and aids in gaining emotional balance. It not only provides you with the space to relax and rejuvenate but also helps to bring clarity in thoughts, improving communication skills. It is also a great way to gain inner stability. There are many ways you can choose from for meditating such as guided meditation, mindfulness, to name a few.
  2. Introspect: Everyday do spend some time with yourself, you can also start by maintaining a journal. Introspection makes you build a close contact with your conscience which fosters better choices and decision making. Furthermore, helps in broadening your horizon and brings you closer to the centre within you.
  3. A pinch of gratefulness: The focus on gratefulness is increasing these days because you are forgetting to notice the good that is in and around you but constantly engaging in self-loathing. Just pause for a moment or two and engage in all the things that you have in the here and now. It is one way in which you can grow at a faster rate in all the areas, may it be physical, psychological or spiritual. It cultivates your core and does not take much but just a few minutes of your day.

You have the ability and can choose to transform yourself as many times as you want because you do deserve the best. So, go ahead biohack yourself with some alternatives, you have never tried before.

World Oral Health Day

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurvedic Doctor, Lakhimpur Kheri  •  11 yrs exp
World Oral Health Day

In 2007, it was first declared that World Oral Health Day would be celebrated on 12th September, the birthday of FDI founder Dr. Charles Godon. In 2013, after full activation of the campaign, 20th March came to be known as the World Oral Health Day. 

Why 20th March?

The date was chosen quite strategically by the Federation Dentaire Internationale (FDI) and here are the things that it represents – 

  • Children should have 20 baby teeth

  • Seniors should have 20 natural teeth towards the end of their lives to be considered healthy

  • Healthy adults should have 32 teeth and 0 dental cavities 

Hence the date 20/3.

World Oral Health Day 2020 theme

Every year, World Oral Health Day is celebrated following a particular theme. The theme for this year is ‘Unite for Mouth Health’. 

What does ‘Oral Health’ consist of?

Oral Health consists of the following –

  • Healthy gums

  • Healthy teeth

  • Being able to speak, smile, taste, chew, swallow, smile without pain

  • Being able to speak, smile, taste, chew, swallow, smile with confidence

  • Being free of any disease of the craniofacial complex (relating to the cranium and the face)

What are some oral diseases and conditions?

According to a 2016 study by the Global Burden of Disease, oral diseases affect around 3.58 billion people all over the world. As per the World Health Organization, there are seven types of oral diseases and conditions, which plague most humans – 

A microbial biofilm, also known as plaque, forms on the tooth surface and results in gradual decay. It converts free sugars from food into acid that dissolves the tooth enamel and the dentine. This can lead to infection and tooth loss if not taken care of. 

  • Periodontal (gum) disease

This disease affects the tissue that surrounds and supports the tooth. It results in gingivitis (swollen or bleeding gums), bad breath, pain, and periodontitis (loosening of teeth). Severe tooth loss and edentulism (zero natural teeth remaining) was one of the top reasons for YLD (Years Lived with Disability) in quite a few high-income countries. 

This includes cancer of the oral cavity, oropharynx and is mostly brought about by the usage of betel quid (areca nut), alcohol, and tobacco. Over five people in India die every hour due to oral cancer. 

  • Oral manifestation of HIV infection

About 30 to 80% of people with HIV suffer from various oral problems like oral candidiasis (infections), oral HIV lesions, etc.

  • Oro-dental trauma

It is an impact injury to the teeth and/or surrounding soft and hard tissues. 

  • Noma

It is a necrotizing disease, which affects children suffering from malnutrition. It is fatal in 90% of cases.

This mostly happens due to genetic predisposition. However, tobacco consumption and poor maternal nutrition are also contributing factors. 

What are some of the pledges that people are making for the 2020 World Oral Health Day?

Motivated by various oral health campaigns, more and more people are now pledging to the following – 

  • Brush their teeth even when they are too tired

  • Cut down on sugary treats

  • Keep their mouth and body healthy

  • Always keep their mouth clean

  • Keep the mouth healthy all their life

  • Inspire others to look after their mouth

  • Make time to go to the dentist

  • Encourage people to keep smiling all their lives

This 20th March, join the cause, make a pledge of your own and empower a hundred others to strive towards oral health.

Weight Loss Surgery - Know Forms Of It!

Weight Loss Surgery - Know Forms Of It!

Weight loss surgery or bariatric surgery helps lose weight in those people who are about 100 pounds (male) and 80 pounds (female). It helps individual resolve obesity-related medical problems.

Types of Weight Loss Surgeries-

1. Gastric Band

A band is put around the stomach tightly which divides the stomach into two sections, namely smaller upper and larger lower which is connected through a small tube by which emptying of the upper part becomes slow. Since less food is required to fill this pouch; there is no need to eat much. The band is connected to a device under the skin. It can be tightened after 4-6 weeks after surgery.

Merits: Simpler method. Recovery is faster leaving a small scar.

Demerits: Lesser weight loss than other surgeries. The band might slip out. Vomiting can occur after overeating food quickly.

2. Sleeve Gastrectomy

In this procedure, a larger portion of the stomach is cut off, and the remaining smaller part is attached to the intestine. Smaller the stomach, lesser is the production of the appetite-regulating hormone ghrelin. As a result, less food is taken in.

Merits: It is a simple method. As it does not involve intestines, the process of absorption takes place smoothly, and the patient does not fall short of nutrients.

Demerits: It is an irreversible process. It can cause infection and leaking of the sleeve might take place.

3. Duodenal Switch with Biliopancreatic Diversion

In this procedure, a larger part (70%) of the stomach is cut off leaving the duodenum. The surgeon cuts the middle part of intestine attaches it to the duodenum. It is called duodenal switch. The leftover part of the intestine is again attached to the last part of intestine allowing pancreatic juices and bile to flow into that part. This is biliopancreatic division. Food passes directly into the small intestine limiting the absorption of nutrients and calories, ultimately resulting in weight loss.

Merits: It is a fast method to lose weight, and the patient can eat large amounts of food.

Demerits: Nutritional deficiencies are seen.

4. Gastric Ballooning

A small balloon filled with salt and water is placed in the stomach through a thin tube via the throat.

Merits: The patient feels full and will not be able to eat much.

Demerits: It is a temporary method, which can last only for 6 months.

5. Gastric Bypass

In this procedure, the surgeon divides the stomach into two parts, namely upper and lower. Here, the upper part of the stomach is directly connected to the last part of the intestine.

Merits: More than 50% weight loss take place, as much weight gets reduced, and conditions, such as diabetes and blood pressure come under control.

Demerits: As less of nutrients are absorbed, the patient might land up into anemia and nutritional deficiency. The patient might need to take supplements after surgery to maintain balance.
