5 Reasons You are Hungry after Eating

Masters Of Science In Dietetics And Food Service Management Msc. (DFSM), Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE), Advanced Clinical Nutrition Program, Post Graduate Diploma In Clinical Nutrition And Dietetics PGD, Bachelors Degree In Applied Nutrition Bhsc
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
5 Reasons You are Hungry after Eating

Many people feel hungry even after a good meal and never understand what the reason is for it. They may be many reasons why you still feel hungry after eating let us look at 5:-

Skipping Breakfast- If you have skipped your breakfast or didn’t have a good enough meal, your blood sugar levels may be affected which could leave on craving for food. It is important to have a full breakfast with a lot of whole grain and protein. This should help to keep you feeling full all day.

Soft Drinks-
Drinking aerated juices and other soft drinks are high in sugar which will reduce blood flow in the part of the brain that regulates appetite. Your body can be tricked into thinking it needs more food by fructose, although you may have already eaten. This happens because it slows down the body’s ability to know we are full.

Dehydration-
Sometimes you just may be hungry even after eating because you are dehydrated which expresses itself in hunger. If you still feel hungry after a good meal, try drinking a full glass of water and see how you feel. The symptoms are the same for dehydration and hunger.

Didn’t eat Greens-
You could also feel hungry after a meal if you didn’t eat your green vegetables. These are vegetables like spinach, collard greens, kale which are rich in folate which helps protect against weight loss. Vegetables are a rich source of Vitamin K which fights against craving for food. If you eat your greens well you are sure to feel full.

Boredom-
Another reason for you to feel hungry after a good meal could also be plain boredom. If you have had a full meal and still feel hungry could mean that your mind is distracted so boredom is also a cause for feeling hungry after a meal.

How To Lose Weight Post Pregnancy.

How To Lose Weight Post Pregnancy.

One should look at getting back to original weight around 6 months to a year post pregnancy. It is important to have a regular diet and an exercise routine to get back to same vigor. Here are a few tips on how to lose weight post pregnancy :

Relax- 
Take your time, your body needs to recoup from the delivery. Don’t be hard on yourself, look at getting the six week check up post delivery and if you are breastfeeding, do not start any slimming routine till at least 2 months of breastfeeding.

Breast Feeding- 
Breast feeding automatically makes you lose weight as it burns calories. Do not try straight away to lose a lot of weight while breastfeeding as it will produce less milk. You should approximately lose 650 gms a week which won’t effect your breastfeeding routine.

Eat Well-
Unlike what may be perceived, it is good to maintain a regular diet post pregnancy and not skip any meals plus add small meals in between. Make sure you are eating non- fat or dairy free products. Eat a lot of food with fiber and proteins avoid juices and sodas with added sugars.Iit just adds to your calorie intake.

Don’t Crash and Burn- 
Do not go any crash diets as it will only result in burn outs and it will take longer for you to regain good health.

Be Realistic- 
You may have a new body to adjust too, but be realistic and don’t overburden yourself.

Exercise- 
A healthy routine of exercise will also shed those unnecessary calories and get you back to peak health faster. 
Do not try anything out of the ordinary but try to reach your usual fitness routine.

How To Reduce Acidity?

Masters Of Science In Dietetics And Food Service Management Msc. (DFSM), Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE), Advanced Clinical Nutrition Program, Post Graduate Diploma In Clinical Nutrition And Dietetics PGD, Bachelors Degree In Applied Nutrition Bhsc
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
How To Reduce Acidity?

Gastric acid is formed in the stomach by hydrochloric acid ( HCI ) ,
Potassium Chloride ( KCI ) and Sodium Chloride ( NAC ) which causes acidity.

Here are some tips to reduce Acidity :

  • Choose an alkaline diet – If you remember from your chemistry class in school, the pH Scale provides a measure between 0 most acidic and +14 most alkaline.Our body’s optimum is pH 7. 36 which is tilted towards being alkaline, an alkaline diet is one which helps you maintain a perfect Ph balance and does not create unnecessary acids. It is a fact that we usually like a lot of acidic food but this only harms our optimum body function.
  • Eat Greens- Eat a lot of green vegetables, fruits, roots, nuts. These are alkaline and keep you away from acidic gases. Make vegetables the focus of your meals, not meats.
  • Reduce the intake of Acidic food- Reduce your intake of acidic food like eggs, refined sugar, meat, white flour, and dairy.Limit Alcohol Consumption- Alcohol has high sugar content and is highly acidic. In large quantities, it can be fatal. It is perfectly ‘ok’ if you like a glass of beer or wine every now and then. Just be conscious of how much you drink.
  • Drink Alkaline Water – Drink a lot of alkaline water at least 8 to 10 glasses a day. Average tap water has an alkaline content of about 6.5 to 7 Ph but alkaline water has about 9 Ph . This will keep your body most hydrated and make sure you do not generate unnecessary gas or acid.
  • Exercise – Break into a sweat regularly. This will also help losing weight while keeping acidity in check.Seek Balance – Stress is a major cause for acid as well, so look at mind altering exercises like Meditation , Yoga , deep breathing and long walks.

How Healthy Are Packaged Soups?

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
How Healthy Are Packaged Soups?

Packaged Soups are advertised with a lot of health benefits and considered packed with vitamins and proteins but this may not be a fact in most cases you just stuck with a packet full of starch, sodium, and sugar as the vegetable nutrients are destroyed. The nutrient content in packaged soups is really negligible as they have been depleted. Let us look at 3 reasons why your packed soups are really doing you more harm than good:-

  • Corn Flour- Most packaged soups have a high content of corn flour this really is a major health hazard as it raises blood sugar content. It could lead to the Yo Yo effect which is extremely harmful to health.  Corn Flour also leads to deposition of fat in the body making one hungrier which leads to more eating and adding on weight.
  • Salt- Packed soups contain a high amount of salt which is just not good especially for people with concerns of blood pressure. Excess of salt is detrimental to health and leads to osteoporosis, asthma, kidney diseases; also causing water retention and edema.
  • Preservatives – Packed soups are packed with preservatives like coal Tar Azo Dyes, sulfites many of which can cause cancer and other maladies. All preservatives in packaged soups are dehydrated which lose all its ingredients when it comes in contact with light or heat they lose all their nutrients. These soups really carry empty calories which get stored in your body with no use what so ever.

So eating these packed soups may be tasty but not healthy at all. If you are looking for fitness get back to a natural diet of whole grain, protein, and vitamins from natural foods and say good bye to packed soups as they are more a gimmick then any real health asset.

Tips To Lower Higher Uric Acid Levels

High uric acid in the blood stream leads to gout and arthritis. To prevent gout must have a good diet and refrain from sugars, alcohol and food like meat, poultry, seafood and pulses. Uric acid is not eliminated easily from the system and leads to inflammation and joint pains with gout.

  • CHERRIES- Cherries are rich with anti-inflammatory substance which is known as anthocyanins this help bringing down high uric levels. The anthocyanins helps from not letting uric acid crystallize and settle in joints which are the reason for arthritis and gout. Cherries will help reduce its level.
  • BERRIES – Strawberries and blueberries should be added to the diet as they have a lot of inflammatory properties which will fight against higher uric levels.
  • APPLES – Have one Apple a day, Apple has Malic acid which neutralizes uric acid. Add apples in your diet.

Red Meat Vs White Meat

There are lobbies which go to the extent of global warming to pursue a vegetarian diet but studies confirm, man is omnivorous by nature and meat is a great source of proteins and vitamins. The debate is  what meat is really good for you Red Meat or White Meat. The primary difference between the two is its fat content.

Fat Content-
White meat is leaner meat with proteins and lesser fat content although red meat has more fat and also more iron, zinc and minerals. Although red meat contains more proteins and vitamins it is related to higher incidences of certain cancers.

B Vitamins
The iron in Red Meat is called Heme iron. It is more easily digestible by man then iron got from a vegetarian diet. Because of the absorbable iron in a plant source vegetarians have found to be with Vitamin B deficiency.

White meat considered healthier
White meat is considered healthier than red meat in a diet and it all boils down to the constituents of the meat red meat is made of muscle fiber known as ‘ Slow Twitch “ which means it  is used more for steady exercises like walking on the other hand white meat is made of muscle fiber known as ‘Fast Twitch ‘ , which gives us sharp bursts of energy . Red meat carries more oxygen has a higher level of myoglobin on the other hand white meat has lesser oxygen and lower levels of myoglobin.

HealthRisks-
Red meat has higher levels of myoglobin which is related to a higher risk of certain kinds of cancer.  White meat has lower levels of myoglobin so you could say better but it is good to have a balanced diet as both red meat and white meat have benefits and disadvantages.
