Any drink having 10% sugar or more becomes a soft drink and so should be avoided. Percentage of sugar, jaggary or khand should be 3% in any drink, which is present in rehydration solution like ors.

I am a 22 year old working female. Off late I have started putting on weight in my tummy, waist, hips and thighs because I keep sitting in one place. My diet is quite healthy. No junk or fatty foods most of the time. I hardly eat rice too. I get no time to exercise. Please suggest ways I can lose weight fast. (preferably without exercise because my routine does not permit so).

At work you can do some bit exercise. After every 2 hours, do some stretches and walk around/on stairs for 5 minutes. This way you can do at least 25-30 mins exercise during the day. Apart from that wherever you can, you must walk. To markets. Instead of lifts. Etc. You need to build in exercise in your daily routine. This is important to keep your joints, muscles and body toned and fit. It will also prevent various diseases. As for Diet >> > Keep 2-3 apples with you at all times and eat whenever hungry >> Keep drinking water throughout the day >> Skip the Colas and Cappuchinos >> - Add more Fruits /Salads/Proteins to your diet. - Cut down Oils/Sugar/Maida/Ghee from your diet. - Cut down Puris/Parathas/Pizzas/Burgers/Fried Rice. - Eat slowly and mindfully. - Reduce portion size. Take small bits of food in your plate.

Hi, by improving your digestive system, you can increase your weight. 1. You must focus on getting the maximum nutrition out of the food that you are eating and digest that. To improve your digestive powers, you can take chitrakadi vati after meal and ashwagandha churna with water twice a day. 2. You can also have milk and milk products eg butter, ghee, etc along with banana shake.

Raisins are rich in essential fatty acids that help with weight gain. Plus, raisins provide important nutrients to the body. • Eat about one-fifth cup of dried raisins throughout the day for about a month. This is one of the easiest ways to gain weight. • Alternatively, soak one-fifth cup of raisins and five to six dried figs in water overnight. The following day, eat them in two parts. Follow this routine for about a month.

Women do conceive around menopause time till they have cycles. I would not suggest oral pills as they will hamper the normal menopause, if copper t has suited her in the past, she can get refitted, keep it for a year even after attaining menopause as a safety.

A. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. B. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. C. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. D. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. E. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. F. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day. G. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain. Try to be patient while you are on the process of weight gain. Results take time to show. Just follow this regimen and you will soon start seeing the results.

Hello lybrate-user, ideal body weight as per your height is 62-65kgs. Your goal should be to gain 2-3 kgs/month so that you sustain it. Weight gain is a combination of balanced diet, exercise, rest. Include high calorie, high protein andmoderate fat foods like milk, paneer, curd, nuts like peanuts, almonds etc, chikkis made from them. Weight training atleast 3days / week and 8-10 hours of sleep should help.

Hi, you need to include calorie dense foods in your diet like whole milk and milk products, cereals and pulses, smoothies, nuts, egg, banana, tubers like potatoes and sweet potatoes and you need to do some work out like cardio, swimming cycling, running, jogging for 30-45 minutes and after that protein and carbs rich food you should consume. If you want workout daily so pre workout meal and postwork out meal will be better for you. If you need a diet plan for weight gain then consult me privately.

Hi lybrate-user to gain hands 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.
