Dear lybrate-user You have to solution to your problem in your question itself. Get off the chair under any pretext to walk around the office. You should drink atleast 5 glasses of water daily. Take breaks to do this. Also, go to the place which is most further to you to drink water to make the walking more possible. Climb stairs, no lifts. Quit dinners and eat boiled veggies instead Start you day with plate full of fruit. Regards.

Hello, it's good to reduce weight at right time as many problems are directly related to overweight! go through 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. 14: take small frequent breaks for a quick walk in between as sitting for long hours together encourages the accumulation of fat in the body! medication: start taking schwabe's phytolacca berry tablets/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr before the meals for 3 months. Thereafter revert me back for further guidance. All the best!

lybrate-userji, First and foremost thing o be done is to achieve strict blood glucose control, with fasting blood glucose closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg /100 ml & HbA1c%<6.8. If this is done then kidney damage will not progress rapidly. Pressure should also be maintained close to normal. Plus regular exercise, restricted diet, reduced salt intake are othe precautions to be followed. Plus person should refrain from alcohol and smoking. Thanks.

The study says listening to music while at work is said to increase physical productivity and give a feeling of well being. Also the goosebumps we get when we listen to certain genres of music is mostly caused by the brain releasing dopamine while anticipating the peak moment of a song.

Hi, I really appreciate you are so much concern about your body weight and the right means of losing weight! it's good to reduce weight at right time as many problems are directly related to overweight! yes, drinking warm water with lemon and honey helps in reducing weight. Brisk walking in morning hours will add to it in weight reduction. Drinking water is rather good for maintaining right weight (as 70% of body weight is because of water). Drinking tea wouldn't make you to put on weight per se, but tea prepared with full cream milk will do so! go through 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).

Please mention the food items that you usually take. Because if you eat fast processing food then they tend to full the stomach soon but you will feel hungry again whereas slow digesting food like roti, daliya, oats tend to give your energy for a longer time while also keeping full.

My body weight is increased in 5 days about 6 kg, what is happen to me, the diet is same as before.
15 Kg weight loss would be great for your health. With increasing age our metabolism keeps slowing down thus leading to weight gain. You may consider checking your blood thyroid levels. Have small frequent meals instead of 3-4 large ones. Replace simple carbs like sugar, maida, rice, bread, biscuits with complex carbs like whole fruits, vegetables, atta, bajra, dalia, suji, oats, barley, ragi, jowar. Drink 3 litres water daily. Avoid junk/ processed/ packaged/ canned/ fried/ sugary foods/ soft drinks/ alcohol. Avoid excess salt consumption. Prefer home made foods to street/ outside foods. Exercise daily for 60 mins.

Eating Healthy

MBBS, D.P.H & H, DFW & CH

Eating Healthy

Healthy eating is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, its about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, stabilising your mood. If you feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting nutrition and diet advice out there, you're not alone. It seems that for every expert who tells you a certain food is good for you, you'll find another saying exactly the opposite.
 

What you can do:
1. learn how your diet affects your mental as well as your physical health
2. set yourself up for success by making changes gradually
3. don't think of food as" off limits"
4. reduce your portion sizes -and fill up with more fruit and veg
5. learn to spot hidden sugar in your food and avoid it 
6. differentiate between healthy and unhealthy fats
7. find out how fiber intake can fill you and help lose weight
8. drinking plenty of water and keeping well hydrated

We all know that eating right can help you maintain a healthy weight and avoid certain health problems. Studies have linked eating a typical western diet filled with processed meats, packaged meals, takeout food and sugary snacks with higher rates of depression, stress, bipolar disorders and anxiety. Eating an unhealthy diet may even play role in development if mental health disorders such as alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia or an increased risk of suicide in young people.
Instead if emphasising one nutrient, we need to move to food based recommendations. What we eat should be whole, minimally processed, nutritious food as close to its natural form as possible.

  • Eat breakfast and eat smaller meals throughout the day
  • Avoid eating late at night
  • Cut back on sugar
  • Moderation and not feeling stuffed is the key to a healthy diet
  • We need a balance of proteins, fat, fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals to sustain a healthy body.
