7 Best Foods for Boosting Memory!

Memory is something which runs the world. Memory boosting techniques are most common among the children. All parents would want their children to have good memory. Adults also loose the capacity of remembering things when they are under stress.

2. Eggs: Eggs are the primary source of protein and are said to increase the memory. A good omelet on any day for breakfast is a good deal to improve your memory.

3. Broccoli: A little sister of cauliflower broccoli is a good source of protein again. Broccoli can be eaten in boiled state as a side or stir fried way as salad. Add some veggies to stir fried broccoli with salad dressing, you get fantastic salad which not only boosts the taste of your palette but also boosts your memory.

4. Strawberries: The favorite most of all, eating strawberries a day would surely improve your memories. Strawberries can be eaten in any way. Shake it up with little milk and chia seeds, you get a fantastic shake which has refreshing taste and goodness of strawberry.

5. Red Wine: Many people swear by this quality of red wine which would help them boost memory. It is said that wine which is older is the better for improving memory powers. Consuming wine with food is the best way to have it.

6. Salmon: Definitely not an option for vegans and vegetarians, salmon is considered to be the best source of protein and hence boosts memory power.

7. Almonds: Indians swear by almonds for their capacity to boost memory. Soaked and eaten as first thing in the morning peeled almonds are the best source of protein too.

Harmful Effects Of Self Dieting!

Weight loss has become a challenging aspect of human life. As we have adopted the modern lifestyle the threat of gaining weight looms over our head even more than the previous generations. Finding ways to shed some weight is very common, but deciding on the diet part without knowing or understanding the basics of nutrition science is dangerous. Here are some of the harmful effects of self dieting:

Starvation mode:

Most of the people think that if they eat less they will lose weight which is a myth. You have to eat enough to survive through the day. Once less calories are consumed the body starts getting into starvation mode and it keeps storing essential nutrients more than usual making you look bulky. Slowed metabolism will bring back all the lost weight as you start eating normally.

Muscle atrophy:

Starvation diets make you loose muscles and all the weight that you lose is only water weight. Losing muscles is the biggest loss of body. Because muscles give tone to the body. Once there is muscle atrophy, your body will look saggy. Even if you look leaner, without toning the body, you will look older. This is one of the major side effects of doing self dieting.

Loss of menstrual cycle:

If women go on starvation diet, it may result in the loss of menstrual cycle. hair Loss, osteoporosis and other major physical problems.

Lack of awareness:

It is so important to understand the difference between good and bad carbohydrates. Less carbohydrates lead to less energy and weakness. Only professional intervention for nutrition will result in appropriate weight loss.

Fibre Intake:

The intake of fibre is very essential for smooth bowel movement. Sometimes in self dieting you may deprive yourself of fibre, resulting in constipation.

Keep PCOS at BAY

Masters Of Science In Dietetics And Food Service Management Msc. (DFSM), Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE), Advanced Clinical Nutrition Program, Post Graduate Diploma In Clinical Nutrition And Dietetics PGD, Bachelors Degree In Applied Nutrition Bhsc
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Keep PCOS at BAY

Polycystic ovary syndrome is one of the most common diseases that are faced by the women of today and the major reason for this is the lack of healthy balanced diet. Pcos is a disease that prevails most commonly in obese or over-weight women. Women with pcos have higher level of insulins than normal and this causes your ovaries to produce excess androgens.

The pcos diet consists of food high in fibre and protein. High fibre food can help combat insulin resistance by slowing down digestion and reducing the effect of sugar on the blood. High fibre food includes beans, lentils, leafy vegetables, almonds and sweet potatoes. Lean protein plays a crucial part in the pcos diet as it ensures that it is filling and is a health dietary option for women. Lean protein is concentrated in food such as tofu, chicken and fish. The diet should also include food reducing inflammation such as tomatoes, kale, spinach and almonds and olive oil.

There are certain food items that should be avoided if you have pcos. They include foods with refined carbohydrates such as white bread, snacks and drinks with high sugar levels and inflammatory food such as red meat. Pcos like many other diseases is positive to proactive lifestyle. Weight loss dieticians state that a healthy diet along with daily exercises would keep pcos at bay.

Few Diet Tips for You to Survive the Holiday Parties

Few Diet Tips for You to Survive the Holiday Parties

The festive season has arrived and this is the time of the year when the zipper on your dress and the springs in your bathroom scale start getting nervous. A busy social calendar can be daunting if you are trying to stick to a healthy diet. While you need to allow yourself the occasionally indulgence, it can be difficult to restrain yourself when you're surrounded by scrumptious festive treats. So here are a few diet tips by dietician in mumbai geetanjaliahujamengi for you to survive the holiday parties.

Get adequate sleep

Rest well the night before a party by getting at least seven hours of sleep. A recent research shows that after a short night’s sleep, adults ate about an extra 300 calories and tended to choose high-calorie foods. When women do not get adequate sleep they may feel less full after eating, while men tend to have an increased appetite. By getting your rest, you’ll save calories and make healthier choices.

Choose wisely 

Choose your first serving wisely. Studies by clinical nutritionist in bandra suggest that you tend to consume the largest quantity of the foods you eat first, so set yourself up by starting with something low-calorie. Try fresh veggies over chips to save 120 calories per serving.

Pour wisely

Choose thin, tall glasses because we tend to pour more alcohol into squat, short glasses. Alternate each alcoholic drink with a glass of water and ease the inevitable hangover.

Downsize your plate

Pick a smaller plate to trick your brain into thinking you are eating more. Research suggests that the average number of calories eaten at a holiday dinner is shockingly high, and that does not count the pre-dinner snacking. Pick a salad plate instead of a dinner plate and cut down the calories.

Eat small

Take smaller bites and sips to trick your brain into eating fewer calories. When you take nibbles and chew your food longer, your brain thinks you’ve eaten more. So nibble, don’t gobble. By taking smaller bites and chewing more, you’ll naturally eat less.

Weight Loss Tips Post Festivities

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Weight Loss Tips Post Festivities

A bit of bloating is normal during the festivities due to the abundance of sweets consumed during this time. However, it is necessary to return to your healthy self, post this cheat period and this can be possible only if you follow a strict diet and exercise routine.

Here are a few tips which can help you lose weight post festivities:

  1. Make physical exercise a part of your daily routine: There is no alternative to physical exercise, which is why it is necessary to engage in moderate to high level workout to drop those extra kilos post festivities. You can hit the gym for half an hour or brisk walk or choose more interesting forms of exercise such as dancing or Zumba. However, the key here is to remain consistent.

  2. Start your day with the right liquids: Add generous amounts of liquids and fluids to your daily diet which are healthy and low in fat content. Vegetable smoothies, sugar-free juices, coconut water, green tea and lemonade (without sugar) are great options to keep sipping on throughout the day. These liquids make you feel full faster and restrict you from consuming too many calories in the day. These liquids also hydrate your body and help in flushing out toxins, thus helping you detoxify and drop those kilos.

  3. Have smaller but more frequent meals: You do not have to go on a crash diet post festivities to drop those kilos quicker, because crash diets only result in weakness and temporary water loss from the body. However, what you can do is have small meals more frequently during the day. The time gap between two meals shouldn’t exceed 3 hours. This keeps hunger at bay and reduces the total number of calories consumed daily which help in reducing weight quicker.

  4. Follow the thumb rule of detox: “If it comes in a sealed package or a tin, do not eat it.” Follow this thumb rule of detoxifying, post festivities, as they are loaded with saturated fats and preservatives which make you fatter. Instead, opt for fresh fruits and vegetables in your meals along with fat-burning food items such as fish-oils, dates, berries, flax seeds, eggs, sprouts etc. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Rice - Good or Bad?

Rice - Good or Bad?

This has been a million dollar question for the past few years.

Rice is not a bad thing. But the bad thing is when we mindlessly gobble huge portions of it. A humble dal-chawal meal is so satiating, that it makes us eat slower and increases our chances of eating the right quantity. This promotes good health and proper digestion, which are the cornerstones of an accelerated metabolism.

Health benefits of rice:

Provides energy:

All forms of activities require energy. Carbohydrates are the quickest source of energy and rice is packed with carbohydrates. Skipping this important component in your meal will make you feel sluggish.

Promotes muscle growth:

Rice contains important amino acids, and when served with a meat dish, the diet is almost complete in terms of muscle mass. Rice is a good option for vegans and vegetarians seeking to develop their physique. The protein content in rice is important for muscle development and preserves lean body mass according to best nutritionist in mumbai.

Prevents gastrointestinal distress:
Rice has low fibre content and is therefore beneficial for people suffering from diarrhoea, colitis or morning sickness. The low sodium content present in rice makes it a good choice for those with high blood pressure and kidney diseases.

Other benefits:
Rice has mild diuretic properties and serves as a good digestive aid and natural anti-inflammatory. The manganese component present in rice helps to boost the immune system. Thiamine present in rice is an important component for cognitive processes.

Rice diet
Despite the recent negative press about rice, it still remains the staple food for most of the world's population. Many cultures consume rice, several times a day. Though rice is produced through a refining process, which eliminates the inherent nutrition, it still provides us with various health benefits through diet research done by dietitians in mumbai. The rice that we consume is not bad, but what matter is what is served along with it. Rice is actually packed with nutrients and has more advantages over other carbohydrates.

Health risks of eating rice:
Rice contains high glyceminc index and is considered to be a fast carb. Rice is rapidly broken down into sugar in our body. This in turn contributes to insulin resistance and glucose spikes. Studies show that consuming white rice in large quantities, five times a week increases the risk for type-2 diabetes.

Considerations:

brown rice is low on the glycemic index and decreases the risk of diabetes when ate in moderation.

white rice lasts longer than brown rice and can be stored for a longer period of time.

all types of rice are low in terms of allergic risk. But white rice is a great choice for people who are allergic to wheat and wheat products.

parboiled versions of rice take longer to cook, but retain more nutrients.

one serving of cooked rice has about seventeen percent of the daily allowance of carbohydrates.

white rice is high in carbohydrates but low in fibre. It does not contain a large amount of vitamins or minerals and is easily digested.

Diwali - 7 Tips to Help you Balance Your Craving for Sweets and Snacks

Diwali - 7 Tips to Help you Balance Your Craving for Sweets and Snacks

Finally! It’s Diwali, the festival of lights. The festivities have already started and you have let your guard down by happily munching on sweets and festive savouries. While your cravings are satisfied, it’s a different story for your body. Calories are getting piled up with almost little exercise, unhealthy habits are playing havoc with your metabolism (know more, which food Can Jumpstart Your Metabolism). You might just see yourself 3-5 kilos heavier post Diwali.

The usual source of high calorie food during Diwali are the sweets that you eat. Laden with sugar and ghee, they are a recipe for disaster. So the question here is, how do you control the craving and keep away from calories? Follow these tips and you shall thank us later:

  1. Drink up: No! Not the beer. It is very important that you drink at least 2-3 liters of water regularly. Dehydration can make you crave for sweets as the body may get confused between thirst and hunger. This also means that you need to avoid carbonated beverages such as sodas and other soft drinks.
  2. Load up on protein: Eat protein based foods such as chickpeas and cottage cheese to fill up your protein quotient. Protein keeps your metabolism elevated and also makes you feel fuller. Try this: eat a protein rich snack before you head out as it will help reduce your appetite thus, helping you to avoid binge eating.
  3. Choose sweets wisely: If you must eat sweets, then make sure you don’t overindulge. Stick to one or two sweets; also pick sweets that are less sugar laden. For example; choose the rasgulla instead of the gulab jamun and squeeze the rasgulla before eating it in order to avoid the sugary juice within it.
  4. Smile at the sight of nuts: Nuts such as cashews and almonds contain heart healthy fats that are good for you. Keep the portion size small as they are high calorie food, eat them regularly as they promote satiety; which means your chances of gorging on sweets considerably reduce.
  5. Never forget to exercise: If you did not pay much heed to what you had, make sure you burn those extra calories off. Go for a run, swim or even a game of football; anything that keeps your heart rate elevated to the fat burning zone for 30-40 minutes.
  6. Be aware of what you eat: Being aware of what you are eating is the most important tip that you can ever get. You need to be conscious about the type of food you eat and also how much of that you consume. Eating healthy does not mean you can eat too much, as they still contain calories.
  7. Eat Slowly: Eat your calorie (know more how to burn Calories) laden foods slowly then you might end up eating much lesser than otherwise. Also, slow eating include better digestion, better hydration, easier weight loss or maintenance, and greater satisfaction with our meals.

How to Lose Weight in the Right Way

How to Lose Weight  in the Right Way

In our everyday eat-and-run, huge-portion-sized culture, maintaining a healthy weight can be a challenge, and losing weight can be a massive challenge. While there is no easy fix to weight loss, there are plenty of steps that you can take to develop a healthy relationship with food, curb emotional triggers to overeating, and achieve long-lasting safe weight-loss. Here are a few safe options to lose weight the right way.

Cut out high-calorie condiments, sugars and refined carbs:

In spite of aiming to cut down on carbs, most of us consume way more sugar and refined carbohydrates than we actually plan to. Eliminating candy and desserts from our diet is not the only solution, though. Sugar is hidden in foods as diverse as bread, canned soups, pasta sauces, margarines and many foods labelled low fat. All this hidden sugar quantifies to nothing but a lot of empty calories.

Plump for low sugar products and use fresh ingredients instead of canned goods whenever possible. By slowly reducing sugar in your diet, you will give your taste buds time to adjust to the change and will be able to wean yourself off the craving for sweets.

According to dietician in bandra, in order to avoid insalubrious spikes in blood sugar, avoid refined carbs like white bread, white rice or pasta, and go for their whole-grain counterparts instead.

Hoof it up:
Exercise is the key to weight loss. Recent studies show that people who manage to exercise at least one fifty minutes per week are more successful with weight loss. People who do not have time to exercise can make a few small lifestyle changes, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or parking the car a bit farther from the destination, so that they will have to walk.

Drink it down:
Water can be considered as liquid gold when it comes to weight loss. Water powers your workouts, boosts your energy and increases your metabolism. It also helps you heed your hunger cues and keeps you from drinking other things. Drinking more water may decrease calorie intake and reduce the risk of long-term weight gain and obesity. Drinking water before meals will reduce appetite and intake, thus leading to weight loss.

Try the veggie-loaded plate method:
Many best nutritionist recommend using your plate to guide your food selection and portion sizes. You can fill one half of your plate with vegetables and the other half can be split between protein and starchy carbohydrates. And if you decide to go for a second serving, it better be all vegetables. Studies have shown that people who consume five or more servings of fruits and vegetables per day are more successful with weight loss.

Work flax seeds into your routine:
One of the easiest and safest things according to best dietitian in kemps corner, warden road, nepeansea road, you can do to speed up your weight loss is to incorporate at least two tablespoons of flax seeds into your daily food regime. You can add it to your morning oatmeal, blend it with your smoothie or sprinkle it over your soup or salad. Flax seeds are the epitome of nutritional benefits and a great source of soluble fiber. They help in lowering cholesterol levels and make you feel fuller for a longer time.

Side Effects of Late Night Binging

With an increase in health issues every day, we are beginning to hear a lot about the importance of eating early and the cons of late night binging. Eating late at night is usually blamed for obesity, but it also contributes to various other health complications. Calories that are consumed at night are not processed as efficiently as those consumed during the day. The habit of late night binging usually starts with skipping breakfast, eating a petite lunch, and by 8 pm you want to eat everything in sight or even wake up at midnight with food cravings.

Weight Gain:
One of the most important reasons to avoid late night eating is the possible risk of weight gain associated with this habit. While most people are aware of the fact that late night gorging may contribute to weight gain, they are not always aware of how it can happen. This is basically caused by the changes in the rate at which our metabolism functions during our sleeping hours versus our waking hours. At night, our metabolism slows down and the food that we consume is metabolized and digested at a much slower rate. This may contribute to increased weight, and thus obesity. So people trying to lose weight should eat at least 2 hours before bed. If you must eat late due to unavoidable reasons, then choose foods that that are low in calories and rich in fiber.

Fluctuations in sleep cycle

Another important reason to avoid late night eating is due to the effect it can have on your sleep cycle. Studies by best dietitian in bandra have shown that the digestive process can have serious implications on your sleep cycle, cause you to wake up more often, and give you a hard time falling asleep at the first place. One of the worst foods that can disrupt your sleep cycle are sugary foods such as chocolates, cookies or other baked goods. These foods may also cause grogginess the following day. In contrast, chamomile tea or some warm milk may actually help you to fall asleep at night.

Heart burn and acid reflux
Acid reflux is a condition in which the stomach acid trickles up into the oesophagus after eating. It is often accompanied by heartburn, or a burning sensation in your lower or mid-chest. Though occasional acid reflux and heartburn symptoms are rarely a cause for alarm, recurrent symptoms can indicate chronic digestive disorder or gerd gastro oesophageal reflux disease. Going to bed immediately after eating can trigger acid reflux or other gerd symptoms. Overeating or eating high-fat acidic foods at night heighten these risks.

BEWARE of False Dietician

In the past decade, people have become exceptionally conscious about their weight and thus dieticians have become an integral part of their lives. Dieticians not only help us reduce our weight but also lead us to a healthy body and life. However, choosing the right dietician is very important. Nowadays, information on all the diets to be followed is available on the internet. Hence,anyone can call himself or herself a dietician by reading up stuff on the net.Online dieticians are rising exponentially and their authenticity cannot be totally trusted. It is in our hands to not entrust all the dieticians and to be safe from quakes.

Obesity or overweight is the cause of many health issues. Every body type requires a different kind of diet and weight reduction program. Analysing the medical reports of the person and then suggesting a diet plan that provides all the required supplements for the person is very essential. Fake dieticians have a set of present diet plans that they subscribe to all their clients irrespective of the medical background or work out regime.

A well-qualified dietician examines the medical reports of their clients and if there are any nutritional deficiencies or diseases, the diet chart will include food that will be helpful for them too. The calorie intake should be directly proportional to a number of calories we burn every day. Starving is not the right way to reduce weight.A properly qualified and practicing dietician would never allow their clients to starve or to follow a crash diet.

Dieticians are made over the counter by running them through crash courses like drugs prescribed over the counter, both can be risky as they are not based on scientific knowledge and evidence.

The world today has become fast and people have no patience at all for anything. They want everything to be done on a fast track basis including a natural process like weight loss.Fake and immature dieticians take advantage of this and try to lure them into their ideas of quick weight loss. These weight loss plans may work immediately but they have long-term effects on our body.

Hence, for a healthy and flawless body, one should always remember the three- patience, perseverance, and persistence.

Fruits when eaten as a whole are alkaline, however any processing like pulping or juicing it up will definately make it acidic as it will be processed outside the body. Also fibres and certain vitamins are robbed from it on processing. Adding water will dilute the nutrients further. So best to have whole fruits.
