Simple Tips to be Active

Take an after-dinner walk
Walk during your breaks and at lunch
If possible, schedule a" walking" work meeting
Park in the farthest spot from the grocery store or mall (it is easier parking as well).
Avoid valet parking (saves money too)
Take the stairs instead of elevators or escalators
Walk while your kids practice or warm-up at their sporting events instead of sitting in your comfy chair (this one I know from experience).
Walk to drop off/pickup kids from school.
Take public transportation; walk around the terminal when waiting for the train/bus/light rail.
Walk the dog. Have you heard our pets are getting fatter too?
Avoid the drive-thru. If you must eat at a fast-food establishment, park at the farthest spot and walk in. And, of course, choose a healthier food option!
Walk to visit friends or neighbors.
Like to golf? walk instead of renting the cart.
Read/watch tv on a treadmill (or stationary bike).

Hi, your ideal body weight should be around 70 to 72 kgs. If you want good health there are no short cuts to it. Along with the diet you will have to find time to do exercises daily. I need more detailed information to correctly guide you. But a few tips you can start are like eating, small regular meals approximately every 2 hours. Increase food sources of protein in your diet. Like dals, milk, curd, paneer, sprouts, beans, rajma, eggs, chicken etc. For a more detailed guidance you can contact me for private consultation on lybrate.

Hi, I am 27 years old guy. My weight is 56kg and hight is 167cm. How can I increase my weight?
Hi thanks for the query. Firstly understand that weight gain is very dependent on genetics and metabolism. It is important to know that just eating just two heavy meals a day will not help. Eating the right foods at the right time is very important. Eat meals at frequent intervals. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise at least thrice a week. Even if you were to take medicines or supplements they will not work in isolation you need to have a calorie and nutrient dense meal.

Hi, there is no as such harm in taking supplements but physical activity is must for that. But my advice to you is that you should do it naturally rather then just depending upon the supplements won't help much. Right now what I can detect is you are overweight and you need to loose some weight so that there will be no further problem in conceiving.

Weight is something which should match your height. for height you need to be well nourished and take up exercises like swimming,cycling,gymnastics. they also help to improve flexibility. . Having home cooked fresh meals which are non oily and free from excess use of soda will help you. Take care

Dear Lybrate user, Depending on the severity of the disease development, one of the primary methods of treating this disease is to change some lifestyle and food habits. Before making any changes, however, it is important that you speak with your doctor about your concerns and plans. Following are few guidelines that will help you out 1. Avoid Salty Foods At All Costs. Salt naturally enhances the thirst that someone has. It creates an instant sensation of being thirsty that will cause more fluids to be consumed then are actually necessary. Any foods with added sodium should be instantly off-limits. This means eliminating fast foods, salted snacks like peanuts and pretzels, and certain grocery items, like soy sauce. 2. Stop Using Caffeinated Products Whenever Possible. Some diuretics are effectively used to treat diabetes insipidus, but caffeine is not one of them. When following this diet plan, it is important to remove most caffeine sources from the diet immediately. Caffeine will cause the kidneys to extract more water from the body. Look for caffeine in these specific items. 3. Processed Foods Must Be Avoided At All Costs. Processed food might be cheaper than fresh food, but it also contains a number of preservatives that can worsen the signs and symptoms of diabetes insipidus. This would include processed cheeses, meats, breads, and boxed foods. The primary issue here is that many processed foods contain high levels of sodium to help preserve them. 4. Reduce The Amount Of Protein That Is Being Consumed. Proteins will also help to encourage the body to create more urine, which is why limiting them is a good idea. Fish, eggs, and even poultry should all be avoided in excess amounts. Even legumes and nuts that are protein-rich should be avoided. You’ll still need to consume protein in your diet to stay healthy, but keep it to recommended levels and avoid excess consumption to promote better health. 5. Water-Based Foods May Be Beneficial. Because the fluids of the body need to be continually replaced. Foods that are rich in water may be recommended as a way to avoid drinking more fluids. Melons, fruits, and certain vegetables all have high water content in them with the vitamins and minerals the body needs. ALL THE VERY BEST.

Do regular exercise, make sure you have a good protein source in your diet. Go with protein supplements called nutrilite protein powder which helps to increase your muscle strength. If you are non vegetarian include eggs chicken and fish in your diet. No drink before meals. Take frequent meals instead of 3 big meals.

Can you suggest me how to reduce my weight as I am too heavy and suggest me some exercises.
Avoid all junk food and all sweet food. Low fat diet does not work for majority of people. Eat wholesome nutritious food full of fibres, good quality fat like ghee and coconut etc. Don't focus on calories but on nutritional density and diversity. Simultaneously working on exercise and diet will surely help. Best rate to lose weight is 1/2 kg per week. If that happens, it is least likely to go high again in future. You do not have to do rigorous exercise to lose weight but start with something small. Let us say 8 minute workout. Go to you tube and type 8 minute workout and you will see many options. Pick one which you like and can do. Trying to lose weight in very short time will need some form of crash diet. Even if you lose weight doing this kind of crash diet, you will get it all back within no time and all the gain will be mainly fat. Not good for your health. Be gentle and patient with yourself. Demonstrate commitment in your persistent efforts. Make comprehensive change in diet, exercise, sleep and stress in your routine. This is called lifestyle medicine. If you can not do it on your own, find some expert who can help you in this over extended period of time. Best wishes.

I am 19 year male. My weight is 55 and I am look very thin. Sir how to increase my weight and how to improve my health?
Hello, Gaining weight is a slow process which requires patience and dedication! The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on the below points (if you don’t have any medical condition) which helps in gaining weight in a right way without harming your body. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. Both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 3months. Revert.

I don't get proper sleep during night times. And I'm not able to understand what's my problem. I'm not able to know Whether I'm worried about love or worried about money problem or worried about studies. Sometimes I feel like crying. I feel like I'm left alone. I feel like there's no one who cares or who understands my problem.

One of the main reasons for not getting proper sleep is that plans made during the day time or earlier, do not succeed and mind finds ways or speculates or wanders to find ways to make the the plans work. These mental speculations repeat in mind at time of sleeping. So, due to plans not working as the mind likes to, the mind remains in agitated state due to finding no way and thus leads to frustration which avoids mind to go into sleep mode. This leads to not getting proper sleep. One has to break one's self-centeredness to avoid the thoughts and frustrations entering into mind at time of sleep leading to improper sleep. The solution is to not intentionally think further about plans, but with faith surrender to the supreme and instead of thinking about the plans it is better to read a nice book, listen to nice music or talks which do not allow mind to get frustrated with mental speculations. Drinking cow's milk in night before sleep also should help. Hope this helps,
