The best solution for Weight loss is Simple Natural Diet + Daily exercise. Add more Fruits /Salads/Proteins to your diet. Double your water intake. One glass every hour. Cut down Sweets/Biscuits/ Colas/Juices 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. Exercise daily - 'Intense' Cardio for 40-60 mins.  This will keep you toned and trim. Reduce outside food. Try to avoid company of people who are addicted to junk food and overeating. Love yourself and respect your body.

94 Kg weight is too much for a 22 year old boy.Means whenever you are on your feet,your legs carry all your weight and for that a lot of energy is required by your body,resulting in production of large amount of heat.This results in weakness in our body even after slight exertion.So the way out is to reduce your weight.

The right diet for healthy bones

Are you constantly thinking about how to get strong bones? Then this video is for you.

Hey this is Neha and you are watching NC Tv. Just a few days back I uploaded a video in which I said I gave up dairy and I actually told you about the side effects that dairy has on our body and I was flooded with one question, and that was- Neha where do we get our calcium from to build strong bones? So people I decided to make this video to make sure you get your calcium myth sorted and your bones remain strong for the entire lifetime. So the point is that dairy and dairy products are really acidic for the body and they are not digested by the system. Now the whole point of getting calcium in the bones is by letting the calcium being absorbed by the system. Now when milk and milk products are not even digested by the system because we generally lack the enzyme lactase to digest milk and milk products how will you get the calcium that is there in the milk? So there is no digestion and definitely no absorption of calcium happening.

The dairy industry has done a fantastic job in promoting milk as the sole food rich in calcium for strong bones, but the fact is that every food that you eat has calcium in it, be it your vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains, all these fruits have good amount of calcium which are readily absorbed. Also calcium is not just the only mineral needed for strong bones. To help calcium get into bones and build into strong bone mass you need magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, silica, vitamin C, proteins and a lot of other nutrients to make sure that your bones form nice and strong. But people are still fretting about calcium and they wanna eat calcium rich foods to make sure that they don't lose their bones.

So today I'm going to tell you about my top 5 foods which if you intake in your daily diet you don't need to worry about your calcium intake.

So the first on my list are the greens. Green leafy vegetables like parseley, mint, coriander, kale are super rich in calcium. I wouldn't consider spinach as a part of this because calcium in spinach is bound with oxalate which doesn't gets absorbed in the body very well. All your other greens are a great source of calcium. Not only calcium but they also have magnesium, potassium which I said are so important for bone formation. One glass of green smoothie a day can easily replace your one glass of milk and you don't need to worry about your calcium intake.

The second food on my list area seasame seeds, white seasame seed and these are such cute little tiny seeds which are so abundant in calcium. All you need to do is roast them, grind them coursely if you want to make sure you need the best of the nutrients that are inside the seeds because the outer covering is really hard so it might not get digested in your body but when you coursely grind it you make sure that you get all the calcium that is there inside and just make a paste, add it to your salad, to your soups or to yor dal, or just coursely grind the powder and top your salads or porridge with this tiny cute seeds.

Next on my list is ragi. Now this is a very common millet and we Indians are blessed with so many millets that we don't even know of and ragi is actually a poor man's source of calcium because it's so cheap, readily available in India and they are so rich in calcium. So you can actually just have a porridge of this or the roti of ragi is really healthy and I've come up with my own ragi khakras with seasame seeds so they are again a great source of calcium. You can add ragi as a part of your daily diet as lunch or dinner and you are sorted with your calcium.

The fourth ones are dried figs, and these are my personal favourites. I love them, so rich in iron, so rich in energy and so rich in calcium. Not only calcium but even magnesium and potassium. So they form perfect food and perfect ingredient for strong bones. So two or three a day and you are great to go. They are great snacks, you can carry them in your bag and up your energy and up your bone mass.

The fifth on my list is amarauth seeds. Now these are really ancients millets again in India and they can be had as khichdi, porridge, upma, you can roast them or powder them and add them to your laddoos or whatever form you want to. You can even puff them and eat them as popcorn or add it to your porridge. They are again very rich in calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. So these were my top five foods which I feel if you consume in your day to day life you really don't need to worry about your calcium.

But again as I said it's not only about the amount of calcium you eat but also the amount of bone loss or calcium loss that you prevent. So how do you do that? First reduce your salt and sugar intake, because these are really acidic foods and they leech calcium out of your body. Again caffeine in the form of tea or coffee, they make sure that you lose calcium from your bones and osteoporosis is the near future for you. Third, animal proteins are excessively acidic for the body and they again leech calcium from your body when taken in very high amounts. And you need to get yourself moving.

If you wanna preserve the calcium in your bones, get moving. Because when you move your body builds stronger and tougher bones. And lastly don't forget my vitamin D which I say in all my videos. Get enough of the sunshine and then you don't need to fret about your bones, no osteporosis, no arthritis. So I hope all your myths regarding bones, calcium, bone loss is clear.

But if you still have any doubts, myths, or suggestions you can put it on the comments below. Don't forget to give it a big thumbs up, share it with all your friends and family whom you think this video will help and of course don't forget to subscribe to my channel if you want the videos directly in your inbox. And as I always say don't forget to be healthy, beautiful and strong.

I am 18 years old. I got more pimples line by line after curing one another. What can I do? What is the reason for this?

Do let me know if you also have blackheads with pimples? and what current medications and remedies you already tried to treat acne? acne is a common problem in teen. Almost everybody will get pimples during their teen years. First, don't try to self treat acne. Some popular nonprescription acne lotions, cleansers and other skin products can cause a serious reaction (rare), mostly it is normal to have acne in teenage. For pimples it's important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to lighten scars left by acne. Don't use vitamin e or any self prescribed preparations on scars or pimples. Increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids through a diet significantly rich in fish and seafood results in lower rates of an inflammatory disease like acne. A low-glycemic-index diet also reduces acne risk.

The thyroid readings are normal, there is no need for any medication. Her thyroid function is normal. About blood sugar after food sugar level is normal, but fasting is high, (fasting glucose intolerance), which is also labeled as prediabetes. No medicine required. But there is a need to exercise regularly for about an hour a day, take a diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight (51 kgs). Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks and high fat milk products. That should help in keeping diabetes away for a few years.

MSc

I want to gain weight I'm 19 and still 40 kg So tell me any medicine or tips to gain weight.
Hi lybrate-user 8 easy ways to gain muscle mass naturally:- 1. Skinless chicken Like beef, it is an excellent source of high quality protein, which is important for muscle maintenance and repair, bone health, and weight maintenance. And of course, there are so many ways you can cook and prepare chicken. Go down to the store and you can easily find chicken meat cut into single serving sizes that can be seasoned and quickly cooked. 2. Cottage Cheese Not many people know this, but cottage cheese constitutes relatively pure casein protein. For those who don’t know, casein protein is a slow-digesting protein, which means it is perfect for muscle maintenance. This is useful especially for guys who have no choice but to go long periods without eating. Not forgetting, cottage cheese is also an excellent source of vitamin B12, calcium, and other important nutrients. My advice: buy the nonfat/low-fat versions. 3. Eggs Eggs contain high quality protein, nine essential amino acids, choline, the right kind of fat, and vitamin D. To sum it up, they are the most value for money. And please note, eggs are not harmful for your health, as numerous studies have already shown. 4. Whey Protein There is a reason why whey protein supplements are the most popular supplement in the bodybuilding world: because they provide a fast and convenient source of protein at an affordable price. Bodybuilders normally use them when they wake up, right after their workout, and mixed with some of their meals. However, for those of us non-bodybuilders, simply using it right after our workouts can be very effective for muscle mass gains. Do not rely on it completely though. It’s more important to get high quality protein from whole foods, and use whey protein as a boost. There’s so much more about whey protein, if you want to find out more, click hereto read a comprehensive article I have written on how to best benefit from it. 5. Healthy Fats I know some of you shudder at the thought of consuming fats, but good fats are essential for muscle growth. In fact, they play an essential role in hormone production (testosterone and growth hormones) that is responsible for muscle growth and strength gains. Your metabolic rate is elevated as well, which helps you shed more fats. In addition, fats are needed for many important maintenance functions. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are the good fats. You can find them in salmon, other fishes, nuts, leafy veggies, oils such as flaxseed, avocados, and seeds. They are also all rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. 6. Whole Grains Whole grains digest more efficiently and provide more nutrients than refined grains, and as such promote sustained energy levels and overall health. For instance, brown rice can help boost your growth hormone levels, which are critical for encouraging lean muscle growth, fat loss, and strength gains. 7. Fruits and Vegetables Top 10 foods for muscle gain, eating for muscle gain, muscle gain dietFirstly, fruits and vegetables are a rich source of antioxidants, which are essential for the healthy functioning of your immune system. Secondly, they provide tons of other nutrients, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. Finally, your body requires the fiber these fruits and vegetables provide, which helps to flush out the substances your body does not need. 8. Oatmeal Oatmeal is an ideal source of carbs due to both its low glycemic index (GI) value and the fact it is minimally processed. The benefits of a low GI diet are as follows: *Better micronutrient profile and more fiber *Increased satiety *Decreased hunger *Lower subsequent energy intake (second meal effect) *Fat loss In short, enhanced fat loss for those looking to lose weight, and a constant source of carbs for muscle preservation Add them into your diet ;gain weight and look good naturally.

Its fungal infection. Garlic is one of the best ways to treat yeast infection naturally. Simply eat a clove of garlic 2 or 3 times each day to start killing the yeast bacteria in your system.
