Tips To Overcome Sugar Addiction

Tips To Overcome Sugar Addiction

You can be very much addicted to having sugar that many a times you might find it difficult to cut down on the amount of your intake. You might find it impossible to stop eating sugar. You might crave to have anything which has a lot of sugar in it.

Why is it bad?

Sugar is a fattening compound as it contains fructose. Sugar causes you to overeat, which in turn causes weight gain. It can bring anatomical changes in the brain, which gets you into an addiction. Sugar addiction is just like any other addiction, like that with nicotine or any other drugs. The only difference is the substance being used. Sugar can mess with the chemical balance of the brain to make you crave for it more.

How to overcome it?

To overcome sugar addiction, here are a few steps you can take:

  1. Observe yourself: This is the first step you should take. Observe what you eat, how much of sugar it contains. Take a note of how you feel after having sugar or something, which is laden with sugar. Keep a diary entry of whatever you observe about yourself and your sugar consumption.
  2. Practice self care: It is extremely difficult for any sugar addict to transition into a diet without any sugar or low sugar content. You will have to take it slow and add regular practice of self care. Do not avoid breakfast every morning. Remember to add in the required amount of fats and proteins (learn more about the Importance of Protein). Do not skip out on meals. Drink a lot of water and fluids like fresh fruit juice and sleep for at least 7 hours or more so that you get proper rest.
  3. Be honest with yourself: If you are trying to get rid of the sugar addiction, you have to be extremely honest without yourself. If you succumb to temptation and end up eating a few too many candies, then be honest with yourself and admit it. Make it a point to overcome the temptation the next time.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

I am 25 years old female working in an E-commerce field and thus has to continuously sit for 9-10 hours in front of my system. Daily morning I am going for walk but still my fats are not lowering dowm spclly tummy, thigh, back and face. As I am suffering from PCOD I am on ayurvedic medication from last 6 months. What should be done to reduce my fats.

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Pune
I do not understand anything of ayurved. But I feel you should also consult gynaecologist. You need to reduce your weight. Walk for 5 km in 1 hr. Daily. Take advice of nutritionist for diet. Avoid outside food. Your PCOD increases weight and weight increases PCOD. If you are married try to conceive as early as possible.

I am a 24 years old man. My wife is 21. During intercourse my wife is suffered from a lot of pain. I have sex with around 15 times, yet she feels a lot of pain. So she was unable to found orgasm. Please give me reason of this pain.

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- due to lack of foreplay during the sex the vaginal lubrication of your wife (by internal secretions) is not occurring normally, thats why she feels pain during the sex. >pain sensation will nullify the pleasurable feeling of your partner during the sex and she will not achieve orgasm at all. 1) use artificial lubricating gel before sex. 2) do perform foreplay before indulging into the sex.

Sir, my sister 36yrs of age, is suffering from gas from past few years and recently she developed pain in her breast. What can be the cause and how to get cured. Please help.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if she can feel some lump/swelling then may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. Wearing a well fitting bra may help. For medicine ask me in private question.

Hello, If you are able to pregnant naturally, it is not a problem for you or your baby. If you want second pregnancy then do not delay anymore. Visit an infertility specialist and get yourself and your partner evaluated.

General Physician,
If your pregnancy needs progesterone as decided by you gynec you have to take it and apply coconut oil on scalp and do not shampoo. Just leave the oil to dry and take multivitamins and check thyroid by TSH test.

Modes of Treatment for a Dry Vagina

M.D.Medicine, Diploma in Diabetology

Modes of Treatment for a Dry Vagina

What is vaginal dryness and how can it affect you?
Vaginal dryness is often a result of menopause and it is capable of affecting women of any age. Although it feels like a minor irritation, it can have a huge impact on a person's sex life. Normally, the vaginal walls are lubricated with a layer of clear fluid. The 'oestrogen' hormone is used to maintain this thin layer of fluid, thus keeping the vaginal lining thick, elastic and healthy. However, menopause brings about a condition known as vaginal atrophy, which is a drop in the levels of oestrogen and this greatly reduces the level of vaginal moisture that is available. Improper lubrication of the vagina can result in painful sex which in turn affects libido, arousal and desire.

Treatment: The most common treatment for this condition resulting from low levels of oestrogen is Topical oestrogen therapy. In this, hormones which are no longer secreted by the body are replaced by the topical oestrogen. Even though Topical Oestrogen Therapy is helpful in relieving the symptoms of vaginal dryness, the treatment pales in comparison to oral oestrogen hormone therapy (HT).

Usually, women mostly use one of the three types of vaginal oestrogen listed below:

  1. Vaginal oestrogen tablet: A tablet is inserted into the vagina using a disposable applicator. The procedure is carried out once daily during the initial two weeks of treatment, after which it can be inserted twice a week.
  2. Vaginal oestrogen ring: A soft and flexible ring is inserted inside the vagina, either by the patient or the doctor. Oestrogen, in the form of a steady stream, is then released directly to the vaginal tissues by this ring. Replacement of this ring is done every three months.
  3. Vaginal oestrogen cream: An applicator is used to apply cream to the vagina daily. The frequency of application can be reduced as per doctor's advice.

Side effects and aftercare: Side effects such as breast pain and vaginal bleeding are common when any form of oestrogen product is used. Vaginal moisturisers should be used to keep the vagina lubricated. Use of water-based lubricants during sex can make it more enjoyable. Use of bubble baths, scented soaps, douches and lotions around the sensitive area of the vagina should be avoided as these products can worsen the problem.

I am 11 weeks pregnant now. My history was; hyperptolatemia, pcod and one time miscarry. Now my scan report is normal. HR also normal. Now am getting leg pain, sometimes getting abdominal pain and since three days am getting headache also. Why am getting headache? Is there any problem with me?

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
Hi! Unless you have spotting or bleeding don't worry. As you have already got your first scan and FHR is normal so ruled out the possibility of tubal pregnancy. Please take rest and drink enough water may be you are tensed about your previous miscarriage that could be reason for your headache. As long as you don't have fever and spotting or bleeding don't worry. Go for your regular checks without fail Eat well . If you think your symptoms are unbearable please visit your gynic doctor. Thank you.

I have cracked nipples. Is it a vry big problem? Im having cracked nipples since long time. Can you suggest any natural ways to heal.

BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Pune
Lybrate-user - you may take this problem seriously, you need a immediate treatment, homeopathic treatment is safe and effective, causes - 1) having very dry skin or eczema can cause cracked, sore and bleeding nipples. If you have an eczema-like condition on your nipples or breasts it may be caused by: irritants in a cream, lotion, soap or perfume. 2) infections 3) small, benign, or noncancerous, tumors 4) hypothyroidism, or an under active thyroid.

Started new pack on 8th july had protected intercourse for the first time on 9th july. Bt the same condom has been used thrice. Then I had very protected intercourse on 14th then missed the pill for the first time in july on 21st july but doubled on 22nd july. I had a light bleeding on 22nd july morning. My pill pack ended on 28th july and my period started on 1 continued upto 6th aug. Hpt with first morning urine on 4,5,6,7,8 weeks all negative. My period date was 1st aug as it did not occur till 9th. I did a serum beta hcg test comes out to be negative hcg level was 0.11.last intercourse was on 14th july no intercourse after that. Usg report shows bulky uterus with normal myometrial echo texture, cervix normal no collection at POD, no SOL seen. No collection at endometrial cavity. Ovaries bulky with tiny follicles arranged peripherally. Doctor prescribed deviry 2 tabs for 5 days. After taking 2 doses I had my periods yesterday. And bleeding is heavy and red with thin structure. Will I continue with the pills further? Not feeling well in the pills feeling nauseated. What causes this bleeding. Is it normal period or breakthrough bleeding? Can I be pregnant. Even if I did not have any intercourse after 14th july and have my withdrawal bleed on 1st aug. Not taking pills since aug. Can I be pregnant? Can serum beta be wrong? Why the bleed is heavy after taking 2 doses of deviry.

Hello, You cannot be pregnant. The bleeding you are experiencing is just as normal periods. You were given deviry for your normal periods to come. You are having heavy bleeding since it was delayed.

I want to know how HIV or AIDS happen? Or if I get into a intimate relationship with a married women then it will infect me? Does this disease happen if I get intimate with a gay?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there ~ although you have answered all the yes/no questions that are standard for the question type that you want to ask there are many things that are missing that need to be screened, for example sexual preference. You have indicated that you want to ask a hypothetical question of" if" you get intimate with a married woman - which is immoral and probably against the law and" if" you got intimate with a gay - which raises the question of whether you are homosexual or bisexual. Do you have a baseline hiv screen done and when was it. It seems like you have multiple partners, please tell me more about that since it is a high risk sexual activity. If you need information about any of the fears that you may have regarding sexual activity I recommend that you text, call or webchat with me privately on lybrate. One thing for sure is that you should always have protected sex when in doubt. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
