If I take one teaspoon fenugreek powder in water in the morning empty stomach then should I wait for some time to eat or drink something after that? Or is it ok to eat or drink anything immediately? I am taking this concoction, because since 4-5 days, I need to go to loo around 4-5 times. Even my stomach aches when I get the sensation to go to toilet. So I guess there must be some stomach infection happened inside thats why I started taking this. So Please confirm what I am doing is correct or wrong.

Are you looking for an ideal diet which is easy to sustain, and has both instant and long term effects? You should opt for the GM diet, which combines all these qualities. This healthy diet plan appeared on the Internet four years ago, and a lot of people have benefited by following it. Here are some important things you should know about the GM diet:
What is GM diet?
GM diet is a weight loss management and diet plan, which was developed by the General Motors Corporation for helping their employees maintain a good shape. It involves consuming certain food items per day.
Is GM diet effective?
In spite of being a popular diet plan, there are some conflicting views regarding the success of a GM diet. However, recent studies prove that this diet is quite effective in reducing weight at a quick rate. You will be able to lose up to 10 lbs per week by following the diet sincerely. For first time users, the diet can be overwhelming because of the radical change in diet, which mostly contains vegetables, raw fruits, and meat servings in reduced amounts. It is also important for you to exercise regularly while following the GM diet, as only following the diet will make you weak.
How to prepare for the GM diet?
If you want to undertake a GM diet for weight loss benefits, you should be able to withstand or resist excessive sweating, occasional feelings of hunger, and weakness at times. These are common side effects during the first few days of the GM diet. It is important for you to stay properly hydrated while preparing for the diet. This is because your body requires a lot of water for metabolism and energy during the diet span. You should also avoid taking alcohol while preparing for the GM diet.
Weight loss objectives
The GM plan was primarily developed to help middle aged, GM Corporation employees become slim and maintain good health. This diet plan aims at eliminating your extra pounds so that you are safe from several health risks, associated with excess weight.
There are several side effects of the GM diet as well because of the fast paced schedule.
- A sudden weakness of the muscles may be experienced as the muscle tissues do not get sufficient protein during the early days of the GM diet.
- Excessive thirst and dehydration are likely as the fluids are used up by the body for metabolic processes.
- Headaches and malaise are also likely.
The GM diet can be undertaken by anyone. However, it is important to consult a doctor before starting the diet plan.

The sciatic nerve spreads down the spine till the legs. The pain in this nerve can feel like sparks running down your back of leg from buttock area. Anything that puts weight on or aggravates this nerve can cause pain that shoots down the back of one butt cheek or thigh. The amount of pain can increase gradually. Sciatica may feel like a gentle ache, a sharp sensation or extreme uneasiness. Sciatica can bring feelings of shivering, numbness and weakness.
Some of the most regular symptoms of sciatic pain include:
- Pain in the buttock and/or back of leg when sitting or walking
- Hip pain
- Burning sensation in the leg
- Numbness or trouble moving the leg or foot

Past studies have found that weight loss surgeries sometimes result in improvement for people with type 2 diabetes, but it remains to be seen if the surgeries are better at treating the condition than lifestyle interventions, the researchers write in JAMA Surgery.
And few studies have examined the effectiveness of weight loss surgery for people with diabetes as well as class 1 or 2 obesity, which represents a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 39. (BMI is a measure of weight in relation to height).
Weight loss surgeries are typically used to treat people with a BMI of 40 or more, or with a lower BMI but other health conditions.
Type 2 diabetes, the most common form, is often linked to obesity. In type 2 diabetes, the body doesn't make enough of the hormone insulin, which helps cells use glucose for fuel, or enough insulin is produced but cells are resistant to it.
For the new research, the researchers studied 61 people, ages 25 to 55, with type 2 diabetes. About half had class 1 obesity and the rest were heavier.
Participants were randomly assigned to receive one of three treatments. One was an intensive lifestyle intervention for one year to help them lose weight with diet, exercise and behavior changes, followed by a lower-intensity lifestyle intervention involving behavioral counseling a few times a month for two years.
Alternatively, participants were assigned to one of two weight loss surgeries: either Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB). The surgeries were followed by the same low-intensity lifestyle intervention the non-surgery group got, for two years.
After three years, 40 percent in the RYGB group, 29 percent in the LAGB group and no one in the lifestyle intervention group had at least a partial remission of their type 2 diabetes.
Three people in the RYGB group and one person in the LAGB group had their diabetes disappear entirely, which did not occur for anyone in the lifestyle group.
Researchers also found that blood sugar control improved more in the surgery groups, compared to the lifestyle intervention group. The surgery groups were also more likely to no longer need medication for their diabetes.
While the new results are a from a randomized study, which is considered the "gold standard" of medical research, Courcoulas said they will need to follow more patients at several medical centers over a longer period of time to draw definite conclusions.
The researchers are pooling their data with similar studies from across the country, she added.
"We’ll be able to see what the remissions look like at five and seven years," Courcoulas said. "I think that’s the next step in this field."
Dr. Osama Hamdy, who was not involved with the new study, cautioned that people with type 2 diabetes and their doctors should not get overly excited about the results.
"Any study like this we need to be very cautious when reading them and read between the lines," said Hamdy, who is medical director of the Joslin Diabetes Center Obesity Clinical Program.
For example, Hamdy pointed out, only a handful of people in the surgery groups had their diabetes disappear. What's more, he said, newer lifestyle-only interventions can be very effective.
