Aristozyme enzymes syrup increases your appetite. For some people, gaining weight or adding muscle can be just as difficult as losing weight. However, simply adding certain foods to your diet can be very effective to gain weight. Red meat is an excellent source of protein that will help you gain muscle. It contains leucine, an amino acid that helps stimulate muscle protein synthesis. The fattier the meat, the more calories you will take in. Just a 170-gram fillet of salmon provides around 350 calories and 4 grams of omega-3 fats. It also provides 34 grams of high-quality protein, helping you build muscle or gain weight. You can make some very simple, high-calorie and well-balanced meals by combining whole grain bread with protein sources such as eggs, meat and cheese. Try combining some dried fruit with a protein source, such as cuts of meat or a whey protein shake. They also mix really well with nuts and natural yogurt, providing a blend of healthy fats, protein and other key nutrients.

Yes your weight is increasing and your BMI is also more than 25. Suggestions: 1.Reduce Salt Intake: More salt in body means more sodium which gives a puffy look to your body. So, it’s advised to eat less salt and more potassium as it will reduce the amount of water in the body resulting in reduced weight. 2. Never Skip Exercise: Exercise daily because this is one sure-shot way of reducing weight because it burns direct fat. Especially cardio exercises can help in reducing weight but you have to be regular in that. 3. Manage Your Diet Well: Diet management is the first and foremost thing that can help you deal with the problem of obesity. It is not easy and everyone’s cup of tea to have a control on diet but half the battle is won, if you can deal with this dietary change. Your diet should be low in calories, with less carbohydrates and less fats. 4. Have Mint Leaves: Taking mint leaves in warm water half an hour after taking meals will prove to be beneficial in losing weight as it helps in proper digestion and boosting metabolism. 5. Drink Green Tea: Green tea, an antioxidant by nature can go a long way in helping you reduce weight. So, prefer taking green tea, if not more once or twice a day. 6. Switch To Lukewarm Water: Drinking lukewarm water every time you are thirsty will reduce fat deposits in your body, so you must go for it. 7. Make Homemade Food: Prefer eating homemade food and avoid fatty and fast food. 8consult through audio video.

Hye, thanks for the query. Your weight is a balance of calories. Fad diets may promise you that counting carbs or eating a mountain of fruits will make the fats drop. But when it comes to weight loss, it's sensible eating that counts. Weight loss comes down to burning more calories than you take in. You can do that by reducing extra calories from food and beverages, and increasing calories burned through physical activity. Understand that weight /fat loss involves sensible eating. You have to eat the right foods at the right time. Eat small but frequent meals. Take smaller main meals. Take a glass of lime water 10 minutes before meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. All the so called fad, crash, restricted diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, don't forget the bottom line: The key to successful weight loss is a commitment to making indefinite changes in your diet and exercise habits.

Your daily calorie needs are about 1700 calories to maintain weight. If you want to reduce weight you should plan about one kg a month less. For that your daily calories intake should be about 1400 calories. This way you can reduce about 8-10 kgs in 10 months.

Hi, Can diabetic person consumes fig [anjeer] to control high BP and blood glucose, due to its high potassium contents? If yes, what is the quantity & before meals or after?

Hi,

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Figs contain fiber and some vitamins as well as a few mineral like in most fruits. Plus a 100 g of figs also give 16 g of sugar. Whether figs will help in controlling BP effectively is not clear. Since most fruits have vitamins, minerals, fibers and antioxidants, they are good. Even in a diabetic person also fruits are good, may not increase blood glucose much. But whether they control BP or reduce blood glucose is difficult to answer. Best is to use specific drugs, diet control and exercise. Plus take fruits. Thanks.

I am losing my weight what diet I should follow? To increase my weight and be fit with body. My height is to much but...
Now a days everyone is behind weight loss programs. But at the same time there are many people struggling with weight loss. Weight loss can result from a decrease in body fluid, muscle mass, or fat. Other causes of weight loss include, but are not limited to, cancer, viral infection (such as CMV or HIV), gastroenteritis, parasite infection, depression, bowel diseases, and overactive thyroid. If the secondary causes are ruled out you can try following steps for weight gain. 1.Eat lot of proteins. Protein forms the building blocks of your muscles. Eating sufficient protein is required to gain muscle weight instead of just fat. If you're trying to gain weight, aim for 0.7-1 grams of protein per pound of body weight (1.5 - 2.2 grams of protein per kilogram. High protein foods include meats, fish, eggs, many dairy products, legumes, nuts and others. Protein supplements like whey protein can also be useful if you struggle to get enough protein in your diet. 2.Eat at least 3 meals per day and make sure to eat plenty of fat and carb 3.Eat lot of energy dense food. Add lot of spices, condiments and sauces sothat the food becomes tasty and you can take more of it. Energy dense foods are Nuts: Almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, peanuts, etc. Dried fruit: Raisins, dates, prunes and others. High-fat dairy: Whole milk, full-fat yogurt, cheese, cream. Fats and Oils: Extra virgin olive oil and avocado oil. Grains: Whole grains like oats and brown rice. Meat: Chicken, beef, pork, lamb, etc. Choose fattier cuts. Tubers: Potatoes, sweet potatoes and yams. Dark chocolate, avocados, peanut butter, coconut milk, granola, trail mixes. 4.Lift heavy weights and improve your strength. This will help you gain muscle mass instead of just fat. 5.Squeeze in an additional meal or snack whenever you can, such as before bed. 6.Use large plates if you are trying to get in more calories, 7.Good sleep. Sleep is very important for muscle growth. 8.If you have a mix of foods on your plate, eat the calorie-dense and protein-rich foods first. Eat the vegetables last. 9.Don't smoke. Smokers usually experience weight loss. Quitting smoking can lead to weight gain. 10. Drink milk and weight gainer shakes which are rich in proteins, carbs and calories. 11. Don't drink water before meals or along with meals as it can reduce food consumption. 12. You can also try supplements like Creatin Monohydrate. Simply consume 3–5 grams per day. However, it may take three to four weeks to maximize muscle stores. Better to consult a Naturopathic physician before starting any supplements for weight gain.

Did You Just Have Failed IVF Cycle?

Did You Just Have Failed IVF Cycle?

Wondering what went so wrong? Why did you have to go through failed IVF cycle? After failed IVF treatment, your mind is bombarded with so many questions. Failed IVF treatment is not the end of the world, there is still a hope. You could still be pregnant with a child; it’s a matter of time and patience. International Fertility Centre (IVF) is the hope and blessing for so many infertile couple, globally, with the highest success rate for IVF treatment.

International Fertility Centre and Dr. Rita Bakshi

We make sure our team provides you the best possible outcome as per your satisfaction. IFC is equipped with the modernized technology for IVF treatment to produce desired outcome. Dr. Rita Bakshi is the reputed IVF specialist and is worldly renowned for her excellence record in the field of ARTs. She offers the best guidance, consultation and never lets the patient to breakdown emotionally, mentally or physically.

Reasons behind failed IVF cycle

Failed IVF cycle is not unusual and it’s not just you. It is a very common problem and generally, for some couples it takes 2-3 IVF cycles to get pregnant with a child. There are many factors that result in IVF failure.

Age

Age of a woman and her partner plays a significant role for successful IVF treatment. Probability of failed IVF cycle for the woman below 35 years of age is lower than the woman above 35 – 40 years of age. Age of the egg matters if used a donor egg as the egg quality weakens as the age increases.

Chromosomal Abnormalities

With the increased age, chromosomal abnormalities also increases that leads to greater chances of miscarriage and failure of pregnancy. Embryo formed after fertilization starts showing abnormal behavior resulting in IVF failure.

Sperm quality

Sperm used during IVF treatment should be of good quality. Low sperm quality is the very common factor for miscarriage and improper fertilization of embryo to result in pregnancy.

Problems with egg retrieval

Sometimes the stimulation of ovaries is not proper even after IVF medications which results in production of lower than expected eggs and of worse quality. This makes it difficult to retrieve good quality eggs for fertilization.

Imperfect embryo implantation

After fertilization, right positioning of embryo into the uterus is required to result in pregnancy. When an embryo is not placed at required place, it hinders the growth and development of an embryo and results in failed IVF cycle.

At International Fertility Centre, our gynecologists use the best medication for best ovarian response and embryo selection technique used at our fertility centre is also promising. Implantation of embryo is undertaken with great care and attention so as to drive positive results.

Stage fright- Symptoms & Management

Stage fright- Symptoms & Management

Stage fright or performance anxiety is the anxiety, fear or persistent phobia which may be aroused in an individual by the requirement to perform in front of an audience, whether actually or potentially. In the context of public speaking, this may precede or accompany participation in any activity involving public self-presentation. In some cases stage fright may be a part of a larger pattern of social phobia (social anxiety disorder), but many people experience stage fright without any wider problems. Quite often, stage fright arises in a mere anticipation of a performance, often a long time ahead.       

     It has numerous manifestations: stuttering, tachycardia, tremor in the hands and legs, sweaty hands, facial nerve tics, dry mouth, and dizziness.

The common Performance Anxiety symptoms are:

  • Dreading the performance, worrying endlessly about it
  • Becoming numbed, distant and withdrawn
  • Trembling hands and voice
  • Sweating
  • Feeling sick or having stomach cramps
  • A racing pulse and pounding heart
  • Tightness in the throat which can hinder talking
  • A dry mouth

Try these 10 tips to reduce your stage fright :

  1. Shift the focus from yourself and your fear to your true purpose—contributing something of value to your audience.
  2. Stop scaring yourself with thoughts about what might go wrong. Instead, focus your attention on thoughts and images that are calming and reassuring.
  3. Refuse to think thoughts that create self-doubt and low confidence.
  4. Practice ways to calm and relax your mind and body, such as deep breathing, relaxation exercises, yoga, and meditation.
  5. Exercise, eat well, and practice other healthful lifestyle habits. Try to limit caffeine, sugar, and alcohol as much as possible.
  6. Visualize your success: Always focus on your strength and ability to handle challenging situations.
  7. Prepare your material in advance and read it aloud to hear your voice.
  8. Make connections with your audience: Smile and greet people, thinking of them as friends rather than enemies.
  9. Stand or sit in a self-assured, confident posture. Remain warm and open and make eye contact.
  10. Give up trying to be perfect and know that it is OK to make mistakes. Be natural, be yourself.

One of the best tenets of good member care includes putting all the proper foods into the body in order to get the goodness from the inside out; but what about putting those ingredients on the body, to get the best of those vitamins and nutrients from the outside in?

That's what men can do with a good male organ health crème, especially if it contains certain ingredients the body needs on a daily basis, including vitamin B5.

What does vitamin B5 do?

Vitamin B5 is one of the most important vitamins in the "B" family. It provides the body with numerous benefits, such as helping the body turn food into energy; obviously this is a vitally important function that benefits every part of the body, including the hard manhood. But it also serves as a mood enhancer and energy-booster, especially since it helps the body create red blood cells, which allows the body to carry more oxygen around to every organ.

Besides that, it does other great things when ingested. It boosts the immune system, which helps keep a guy feeling great. It helps regulate blood sugars to keep the body at a constant level and might help avoid that 'crash' in the afternoon that most people dread. Vitamin B5 helps the body use proteins, fat and cholesterol, which can all combine to boost that energy even further.

But what about a healthy member?

  • Obviously ingesting vitamin B5 is important for the overall function of the body, but what about the member? There's a big reason why B5 matters - because it helps boost male hormone, which in turn helps improve a man's sensual function. This is especially important as a man ages, because his body produces less male hormone over the years. A stronger hit of vitamin B5 every year can then help ensure a man is doing all he can to increase and improve his male hormone levels.
  • A man can also put the vitamin B5 directly on the member for even more targeted benefit. A good male organ health crème that contains this healthy vitamin can help it sink into the skin and deliver a boost of energy to where it's needed most.
  • It's also important to remember one key fact about vitamin B5 - it is water-soluble, which means that it gets absorbed and used by the body and then expelled through urine. It doesn't 'build up' in the body's tissues. That means that it must be ingested every single day in order to keep a steady supply going.
  • Fortunately, a guy can get vitamin B5 through numerous foods he probably already eats on a daily basis, such as eggs, beef, legumes, mushrooms, and some types of fish, such as tuna or salmon. A guy can also turn to a multivitamin if he worries about getting enough, as this supplement provides an ample dose.
  • In addition, a man can boost his vitamin B5 intake from the outside in by using a high-quality male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Using a crème every day can provide not only B5 right to the area where it's needed most, but the body can absorb lots of other wholesome ingredients, including vitamin C, alpha lipoic acid, L-arginine, vitamin A, and much more. A powerful Shea butter and vitamin E base helps ensure the delivery of the crème is smooth, soothing and enjoyable.

Sequential Embryo Transfer

Sequential Embryo Transfer

Sequential embryo transfer-(SET) is an improved method of increasing pregnancy rates and implantation rates in infertile couples.  According to the  American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the average  pregnancy rate is about 20% for patients undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment.  Patients undergoing SET have a pregnancy rate of over 50%!     SET is the transfer of two groups of embryos in the same menstrual cycle of a woman undergoing IVF treatment for infertility.  One group of embryos-the best looking and fastest growing embryos are transferred to the uterus 2 or 3 days after the oocytes (human eggs) are collected from the ovary.  The second, more highly developed, group of embryos are transferred to the uterus a few days later-when at least one embryo has reached the expanded blastocyst stage-an advanced stage when an embryo is about to hatch from its shell called the Zona Pellucida  and attempts to implant in the lining of the uterus called the endometrium.  SET has an increased implantation rate ( embryos implanting from the total number of embryos).
