How do I control my body fat without side effect? Is there any natural way to control this or I should take artificial medicines?

Hello, It's good to reduce weight at right time as many problems are directly related to overweight! Read the following guidelines and implement them in your routine: Management: 1: Drink plenty of water (at least 2-3 l/d) or other calorie-free beverages. 2: Be choosy about nighttime snacks. 3: Enjoy your favorite foods. 4: Have 6 meals per day - 3 main courses and 3 snack meals (snack meals should be healthy). 5: Do regular exercises daily (start with light and later may be little vigorous) . Exercise decreases the stress hormone in your body, burns calories and also increases the blood circulation. Preferably brisk walking, swimming, cycling, skipping. 6: Eat seasonal fruits. Fruit helps to satisfy your sweet tooth thanks to its natural sugars, while fresh vegetables help you fill up more quickly. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber to help you feel full quickly. 7: Eat more whole grains and cut simple carbs. Whole wheat bread, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, and brown rice are all excellent sources of energy and sources of nutrition. 8: Choose lean proteins instead of fatty ones. 9: Cut the salt from your diet. Eating more sodium causes your body to retain water, which can cause you to feel bloated and gain more weight. 10: Don't skip meals.When you skip meals, your body stops breaking down fat and starts breaking down muscle tissue. Muscle tissue burns more calories at rest than other tissues, so you're actually working against your goals 11: Eat at home. Going out to eat makes it too easy to cheat. Food sold at restaurants is commonly much higher in fat, sodium, and other weight-loss killers. 12: Give yourself a treat now and then. If you're attending a party or going out for a special occasion, allow yourself an indulgence. Just make sure that these indulgences don't become daily habits. 13: Go for a health walk. Gear up yourself daily for a health walk which not only shed off your extra calorie, but also reduces the stress levels. Medication: Start taking Schwabe's Phytolacca Berry tablets/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr before the meals for 1 month. Thereafter revert me back for further guidance. All the best!

Do a pregnancy test on urine after she is up by few days despite an irregular periods. Another choice is to get blood tested for hcg hormones that starts rising as soon as conception occurs, means even before the cycle is due. It is not an expensive test and useful in anxious patients. Costs 1 thousand plus in a routine lab.

Hello Doctor, Good afternoon. I'm a 22 year old female. I face a major problem with sleeping. My problem is I either sleep continuously for days. Night and day.

I am 30 year old. I want to reduuce fat from my stomach.

Post Doctoral Fellowship in G I Surgery, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon,
You need to loose weight. To do that one has to persist with a drastic reduction in the intake of carbohydrates, (specially refined sugars) and fats, increase intake of proteins and increase the expenditure of energy by regular exercise. Starving ones self does not work for any length of time and three meals at regular times, eaten slowly is the best method. Avoid snacking between meals, have a good breakfast, moderate lunch and a light dinner. The foods to avoid are sugars, or anything that contains sugar and fat such as bakery products, ice creams, desserts, fried foods (like pranthe, pakore, puris) pizza and potatoes. Rice can be replaced with two chapattis made of multi grain atta. To fill your stomach one should take lots of fruits (papaya, apples, guava) and green vegetables (cucumber, ghia, laoki, teenda, and tori) and sprouted dal. Milk should be double toned. The protein intake should be increased by taking egg white, cooking should be in small amounts of olive / sunflower oil. Vegetarians can use soya bean dal, nutri nuggets and cottage cheese made from double tone milk. The best exercise is jogging or brisk walking for at least 45 minutes, five days a week. For more info read my health tips.

Breathing exercises you should do before your daily walk
Before starting out for a walk, relax and take a deep breath and fill your lungs with fresh air which will move them into their most efficient position. After you exhale, maintain the chest in this position with shoulders down and slightly back throughout the walk.

After doing exercise and Yoga what is suitable to eat in breakfast after eating Baadam and Munakka. Should the breakfast be heavy?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hye If you are eating a dry fruit after exercise, then keep a gap of at least half an hour till you have breakfast. The breakfast has to be wholesome including a cereal, a protein and healthy fat and some vegetables. So, have a poha, upma, dosa, idli, paratha, thalipeeth, roti egg or paneer parathyroid as per your traditional eating style.

Hye, thanks for the query. The moment you think of weight gain, whatever is your workout or diet intake, does not justify taking a supplement. You cannot gain weight by just adding a supplement to your diet. Weight gain needs additional calories through a balance of carbohydrates, proteins, healthy fats and exercise. Supplementation totally depends on your present food intake & activity levels. Creatine is only taken when your workout intensity is very high. Randomly taking supplements can be harmful and a waste. So, for weight gain you need a balanced, calorie dense diet and a good exercise routine. Even if you do gain weight it will reduce once you discontinue the supplement. So, before you decide to start the supplement first work on a healthy diet and exercise routine. Whey is an easily absorbable protein supplement but it can help only if you are working out well.

I have joined a gym and am feeling very good lately. I am much more active than I was before also I have been eating clean which is why I lost 4 kgs in a month. A few days ago my Gym Trainer told me to go for a zero carb protien (isopure) and a fat burner to cut weight. Should I go for it? Will it have any long term affects on my body? Is it harmful? Will my weight loss be temporary? Will I get addicted to the Fat Burner?

Its very good that you weight training. You do need whey protein after a weight training session. Isopure is good. If you are eating clean then you will surely achieve fat loss. Fat burners are not required as it increases your metabolism a little bit. But once you stop it your fats can come back. It also has some side effects like shivering, breathlessness, hyperactive hence less sleep. Fat burners can be used only at the end of a fat loss diet when your body has plateaued. As a nutritionist I would suggest not to take it for the temporary result. Eat 1st class proteins, minimum starch, fruits and lots of vegetables. This should help you achieve your results.

Dengue fever - act early, be safe

The rains have come, so has dengue. The mosquitos that spread dengue bite during the daytime, so keeping as much of the body covered as possible reduces risk of being bitten. Use a mosquito repellent on the exposed parts of the body, it is safe in children, a repellent applied on the hands legs and face will protect much more than the fancy mosquito bands that are aggressively marketed during this season.
The first symptom of dengue fever is increased body temperature, which often associated with body aches and headache. Many over the counter fever medications have drugs that have effect on the kidneys, liver and platelets. Instead of self medication, it is advisable to seek medical attention. Diagnosing dengue early and being under the guidance of a doctor can prevent complications.
The major issue in dengue is decreased blood volume due to a leakage in the capillaries, the way to manage this is by adequately hydrating the person and quite often need intravenous fluids and serial monitoring of the blood counts and platelets. Unnecessary antibiotics and other drugs can increase the risk of bleeding and complications. Avoid self medication and over the counter medications.
Screening tests have to be chosen carefully, many labs advertise dengue screening, unless the correct test is chosen depending on the time since the start of the illness, these tests would not be useful. Stay alert, stay safe, always seek medical opinion before treatment or tests.
