Fast Food - Is It All Bad?

Fast Food - Is It All Bad?

Fast Food, by and large, is detrimental to the health. Multiple studies have shown this in the past decade. It aggravates many diseases and is responsible for medical conditions such as obesity, respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases and hypertension. Amidst multiple negative qualities, many fast foods are actually not that bad for the body. If taken in right proportions, some of the fast foods mentioned below can be extremely useful for the body.

  1. Popcorn: Apart from being one of the best accompaniments for movies, popcorns greatly helps in curbing hunger. Home-made popcorns have fewer calories and are a very good antioxidant. The good part about popcorn is the fact that it is not heavy as other fast foods and doesn’t make you feel lethargic. However, it should be ensured that more than one bowl of popcorn is not consumed at a time.
  2. Baked snacks: Baked snacks are a much-preferred choice in the snacks category these days. Owing to their low fat and carb content, they not only serve as tasty snacks but are good for the overall health as well. The fact that baked snacks are made up of whole wheat, makes it a more attractive offering. Baked snacks, when prepared with a dash of spice, can be a good alternative to other unhealthy snacks in the market.
  3. Processed Cheese: Processed cheese contains Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). The latter is found to have anti-carcinogenic properties. A recent study showed that the CLA found in processed cheese is much more than other dairy products. Processed cheese is also a good antioxidant. This being said, too much intake of processed cheese can be harmful to the body.
  4. Dark chocolate brownie: If dark chocolate is consumed with whole wheat brownie, it acts as a good ingredient for patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases. When consumed with a few nuts, dark chocolate brownie becomes a power house of fibre. People with a sweet tooth can find this preparation a good alternative for other fast food items such as chocolate, ice cream and pastries.
  5. Chocolate Bars: This is another treat for a person with a sweet tooth. Dark chocolate bars are rich in antioxidants. It brings down blood pressure level and is found to be effective for the heart. This should not be consumed more than 100 grams per day.
  6. Stout Beer: Dry stout beer with its rich creamy content is as good as a dose of aspirin. This form of liquor improves blood circulation level and reduces the risk of cardiac arrests. One pint of this beer every alternate day will serve the purpose of quenching your alcohol thrust while ensuring that no harm is caused to your health. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Please note the followings in respect to your queries: 1. Banana and Milk -- Bananas are full of calories and contain high amount of carbohydrates and potassium that give you instant energy. Whosoever want to gain weight must eat a banana daily in the morning with a glass of warm milk. Add a teaspoon of sugar in it. Moreover, you can also have it after your meals. Note – Don’t eat bananas when you are down with common cold. 2. Peanut Butter -- Peanut butter is a yummy spread for toast and bread. If you’re trying to gain weight, feel free to go for this high-calorie and nutritious food. Apply it on your whole wheat bread for breakfast and see how your weight increases within a short period of time. •Besides, you can spread a spoonful of peanut butter on fruits or vegetables like banana, apple slices, fresh berries, wheat germ or applesauce. •Alternatively, a peanut butter sandwich is also a good choice. If you have any medical disease that needs to be treated. Find a great personal trainer and yoga instructor to keep you consistent.

Natural way of weight loss is by routine exercise like walking, running, yoga and healthy diet which contains boiled vegetables, more fiber, low carbohydrate and fatty food. Medicines work temporarily for weight loss. Skipping meals will not help. If any medical condition is related then that can be treated.

Hi Lybrate User, As per your stats, your BMI is 36.7 which falls in Obese Cl2 Category. Your frame is designed for about 65-70 Kgs which means you are carrying about 30 Kgs extra. You can imagine how your body is going to cope with 30 Kgs extra weight to carry. As for Hypothyroidism. It can contribute about max 3-4 Kgs to your weight. Beyond that the weight is due to your food habits and lifestyle. The medicine Thyroxine is already taking care of your Thyroid problem. But extra weight contributes to a host of many problems. Some which can be quantified and some which can't be quantified. Recommendation. 1. First and foremost. Please visit a dietician and get a wellness plan to get your weight down. 2. This is very very Urgent. Your excess weight is causing imbalance in your body. Due to which you feel all other symptoms. 3. Get complete body tests done to rule out other issues like Sugar, BP problems etc. 4. Start on a fitness / Yoga / Walk program immediately 5. You have to make your health a priority. Immediately. 6. Thyroid is not the problem. It is your lifestyle which needs immediate change.

Aapne apni height nahi likhi hai. Anyway, to gain weight in healthy way, consume balanced diet with more protein rich foods to build muscles. Since your weight is less, the amount of protein you have to take is 1 to 1.25 gm protein / kg of ideal weight. You can include sprouts, paneer, cheese, peanut butter, whole fat milk & milk products also in your diet. For customised diet plan (to evaluate your total fat, visceral & subcutaneous fat, your bmi, bmr, muscles etc.) everything should be considered including dealing with the deficiencies.

Hi, as he is very small and he will gain height in his rest of the 18 yrs, so don't worry so much about it. Encourage him indulge into physical activities like jumping, hopping, running, etc. Which will help in pressing the pressure points which are present on the sole of each foot. Also, give him calcium sources (milk, milk products, non-veg. (sp. Seafood), eggs, green leafy vegetables, fruits, fortified cereals such as corn flakes as they have a lot of calcium in one serving, soyabean). Vitamin d is also required for healthy and strong bones, so daily 10-15 minutes of exposure to sunlight (in summers, avoid sunlight between 11am to 4pm) is an essential part. Regular de-worming (medicines given for worms) after every 6 months is mandatory. Medication: give your child homoeopathic medicines - biocombination-21 and alfaalfa tonic - both 3 times a day daily for 3 months. These two can be given regularly on and off later.

Well thinking is becoming your compulsion. It can create stress. One year of this complaint is a long duration. Now its time to get rid of it to prevent further progress of the same. I would recommend you to take homeopathic treatment. It will definitely help you to get cured completely as it will focus on origin of the complaints.

Common Problems in Children

ECFMU, MS - ENT, MBBS, Certificate in Pediatric Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Robotic Surgery Familiarization (France)
ENT Specialist, Gurgaon

Hi, I’m Dr. Shashidhar. I’m a pediatric ENT consultant and I work with a hospital called Artemis in Gurgaon. I’m going to talk about the common problems in children which is cold and why it comes again and again?  What is the solution for it?

It’s a very common problem nowadays with children going to day schools and play schools. At an early age and a lot of times, we’ve been told that this is because of the pollution or the allergies or infection from the surroundings but quite often we miss a very common cause of the cold which is what we call as Adenoids.

What are Adenoids?

Adenoids are small lymphoid tissue, the tissue that makes white blood cells in the body behind the back of the nodes. They are normal in children but sometimes they grow up in size. Like what you see here, like if this is the size of the adenoids, which should be there, is marked in violet, sometimes they grow, the bigger circle here the yellow in the back of the nose and block the nose. When this happens the common symptoms in children are snoring, breathing from mouth, restless sleep where the child is constantly turning this side and that side trying to get a good position in which he can breathe, some drooling and some coughing in the night.
More often than not we tend to miss Adenoids because we can’t see them directly and we tend to treat these conditions in terms of allergies, bronchitis and put the child in to nebulization and in unnecessary treatments.

What I’ve found in my own experience, that lot of the kids who have been told they have allergies and they have been told they have bronchitis have actually had Adenoids. So, if your child has reoccurring problems of sore throat, breathing difficulties and nose blocks, it’s worth getting evaluated for adenoids because the treatment of adenoids is very simple and often very gratifying. Which can be done with simple nasal sprays, saline washes and if it is a severer one it needs a surgical intervention to open up the nose.
Adenoids also cause recurrent ear infection, ear pain and sometimes they cause hearing disorder in children. It is quite difficult to evaluate such problem in children. You can only perceive it as, sometimes when you call them they don’t respond, their grades are falling in school and when they watch television they tend to raise the volume of the noise and this helps us to pick up the child to scream for the hearing problems because when you have adenoids you have a higher chance of getting ear infection and fluid inside the ear which is called otitis media, which can also be treated in the same lines. Rarely we need to put some grommets or some surgical intervention to drain the fluid out if we are not able to treat it medically.

Third problem which I wanted to discuss is Allergies in children. Aallergies in children can present in very wide spectrum. Sometimes they present only as cough, sometimes children get rashes on their skin, sometimes they can have allergies to food and recurrent diarrhea and other problems. So, allergies in children can be treated quite effetely with medicines and we have what we call as Immunotherapy to detect what the child is allergic to so we can specifically target that antigen and cure them for the long term. This now is the most gratifying and the latest treatment in allergies called Sublingual Immunotherapy.

With all these new, exciting treatments and if your child is not getting benefited by cold and cough routine treatment, you’re free to contact me at 3 Senses ENT Clinic which is in South City 2, Arcadia, Gurgaon. I’m also available at Artemis Hospitals throughout the week except on Sundays.

Thank you so much for your time.
