Brown Bread Vs White Bread Vs Whole Grain?

Brown Bread Vs White Bread Vs Whole Grain?

Be it burgers, bagels, muffins, sandwiches or simple toasts, bread has made headway into the diets of a huge portion of the populace. Although a staple diet for many since time immemorial, the consumption of bread has increased extensively in the recent past. But, which type of bread should we intake to incur the best health impacts is a question that bothers many. The general assumption is that the wholegrain variety is the best alternative. However, the barrage of marketing tactics makes it impossible to distinguish the best variety from the others. 

There are a whole lot of myths surrounding the best variety of bread and you must choose wisely before settling for one particular type. It is expedient to look beyond the overt appearance or the name of the bread, one needs to be wary of the ingredient before taking a call.

Mostly, white bread is made out of refined flour which is often striped off essential nutrients and fibers. To worsen the situation, white bread is often bleached with certain chemicals to enhance its appearance.
Certain assumptions deem brown bread as the healthier option. Unfortunately, it isn't true always. More often than not, brown bread is simply white bread with artificial coloring added to it or is caramelized. They essentially add no surplus nutritional value.

Similarly, multigrain bread can often mislead the consumers about its health impacts. Unlike whole wheat bread, multigrain breads are usually chemically treated with softened grains. This does not effectively recover the lost nutrients of the bread.

Whole wheat bread has more pronounced health benefits. It contains more wheat germ and fibers in comparison to the more processed varieties of bread. Having evaded the toxic additives, it has relatively healthier effects on our blood sugar levels.

As you realize that the bread that you eat does not necessarily affect your health favorably, wisdom lies in seeking out the least harmful variety. In that context, rye bread or spelt bread contains greater amount of minerals. Besides, bread made from barley, oats and millets have greater mineral content than the commercially hybridized varieties and promote better health.

How can I gain my weight. Am so thin. Every one insulting me. What should I do for gain my weight.
According to your height your weight should be 49 kg. So increase little weight. You consumed high calorie, high peotein, high fat diet with liberal vitamin intake is recommended. Fluids should not be taken before or with a meal but only after a meal so that food intake is not reduced. You take protein rich food such a soyabean, milk n milk products, egg n egg products, pulses, sattu with milk.

I am a male. My age is 24 and height is 5'6" and my weight is only 46 kg. I am much underweight and thin. I have also taken several supplements to increase my weight but nothing happened. My body is not gaining fat. Please suggest me proper treatment.

Ayurveda, Narnaul
Dear,People who are underweight and do not have fat deposits on their body may not be getting enough calories to fuel their body. This could have a direct impact on all of their organs and may eventually lead to a variety of health problems.There are ways to get into the shape we desire and to gain weight fast. This would require understanding the reason for low weight and maintaining a diet for weight gain. In weight loss, the simple formula is to burn more calories than you consume, but to gain weight you have to also find out if there is something in your body that is preventing you from getting to the weight that you desire.

To gain weight you should eat more calories than you burn. Plus not only you have to eat calorie dense food but you have to keep in mind that what you are eating is healthy too. In the process of weight gain you do not want to put weight in an uneven manner and look unhealthy rather than looking bright and healthy. 1. Start with changing your lifestly. Start working out if you are not active. The biggest myth that prevails now a days is that thin people do not need to work out. This is wrong. When you challenge your body, it is forced to grow. But this growth can only be possible if you are eating enough food to let the body absorb and grow in size and muscles. 2. Eat Healthy – Stop drinking and smoking too much if you are indulged in it. Limit your intake of junk food, pepsi, sugary stuff etc. Do not at all starve yourself. Make it a habit to eat something healthy every 3 hours. This means you have to eat 6 small meals in a day. Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. b. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. c. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. d. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. e. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. f. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day. g. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain. Try to be patient while you are on the process of weight gain. Results take time to show. Just follow the regimen of weight gain religiously and you will soon start seeing the results.

Is it lemon tea good for health or not? If good then please tell me about benefits.

Is it lemon tea good for health or not? If good then please tell me about benefits.
10 benefits of drinking lemon tea first thing every morning 1. Hydration - This is I feel the most important benefit – Our body is literally on a fast while we sleep and is in a mild state of dehydration when we wake, lemon water can re-hydrate your body within minutes of drinking it which is why it is so good first thing. Lemon tea – warm water and lemon juice helps to replace fluids that are continually lost by our body, being dehydrated causes rapid aging and deterioration of the body, we feel exhausted, stressed, cant think straight, constipated – the list goes on. We are 70-75% water, it is essential to keep those body fluids up. When we are properly hydrated we are full of energy and feel vibrant. 2. Digestive Aid - Lemon juice doesn’t actually flush the body as you may read, but it helps the liver and kidneys to do their cleaning job, it helps produce the acids we need for good digestion. The acids in lemons are of a similar composition to our saliva and the hydrochloric acid of digestive juices – the body’s natural digestive acids. Lemons are also high in minerals and vitamins which help shift toxins in the digestive tract. Lemons turn alkaline when digested by the body and so help to relieve symptoms of indigestion, such as heartburn, acid reflux and bloating. The citric acid in lemons help to produce enzymes, which aids healthy digestion and stimulates the liver. The American Cancer Society says warm lemon water helps cancer sufferers to stimulate bowel movements. 3. Lemon is a Natural Diuretic - A natural diuretic, therefore helping the body to release toxins – helps detoxification and keeps the bloating away. 4. Clears Skin - With all that flushing and hydrating we are obviously going to improve the look of our skin and we all know vitamin C is fab for our skin right? Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is key to the production of collagen, a protein which aids in the growth of new cells and blood vessels to give skin its firmness and strength. Vitamin C also helps create scar tissue and ligaments, it helps our skin repair itself. The vitamin C contained in the lemon rejuvenates the skin from within our body and gives us a vibrant glow! 5. Immune Builder - One of the easiest, cheapest and most effective ways to boost the immune system – high in antioxidants and vitamin C, drinking lemon juice or lemon tea regularly helps to fight of disease and illness. Lemons are also high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function and control blood pressure. Lemons are anti -inflammatory – inflammation can cause many health problems. People with Asthma and other respiratory symptoms would all benefit hugely from drinking lemon tea/water. 6. Balances pH Levels - Lemons are one of the most alkalizing foods for the body bringing it back to a balanced state, when we are over acidic we are vulnerable to disease – no disease can survive in an alkaline body. Drinking lemon water regularly can help to remove high acidity in the body, including uric acid in the joints – one of the primary causes of pain and inflammation. 7. Freshens Breath - Lemons can help clear bacteria in the mouth assisting with the health of our teeth as well as keeping our breath nice and fresh. The acid in the lemons can erode the enamel on the teeth though, so be sure to rinse with fresh after after your lemon drink. 8. Promotes Healing - If our immune system is strong we obviously heal more quickly and the vitamin C found in abundance in lemons, helps to heal wounds quickly and basically takes care of all the tissue in the body including bones and cartilages. Vitamin C also helps us recovery from stress and anxiety. 9. Lifts our Mood - Just the smell of a lemon can clear our mind and so lift our mood, back in my aromatherapy days, we were encouraged to use lemon essential oil and have it near us while studying to help us stay clear and focused as well as happy! 10. Aids in Weight Loss - Last but definitely not least, lemons help us hugely with keeping our blood more alkaline and people with healthy alkaline levels tend to lose weight more easily and faster than those who are high acid, the body is very sluggish and slow when in acid state and so it would be very difficult to lose weight, for us to lose weight we need our system to work well and eliminate properly, lemon is helpful in this way too. So get that lemon tea going and lose those extra pounds! Of course just lemon tea alone will not bring all these benefits, but an overall healthy diet, lots of water and lemon tea in the mornings will bring huge health benefits.

Repeat this exercise 5-8 times in morning. *sit on the floor, stretch you legs together so that both foot touch each other. Now raise your arms upwards together with back straight, now move your hands towardstoes of feet and touch them. Your forehead touching your knees. Slowly revert back the arms and move back arms in normal position. Repeat this exercise 2-4 times daily. You can privately consult me for understanding more exercises. 2. Take 300 ml of rich cream milk, 200 gm of cheese and 2-3 eggs regularly. It will definitely give boost to your bone growth. 3. Sit in sun rays for atleast 8-10 minutes in morning of evenings when the sun rays are not so strong. It will help you by getting adequate quantity of vitamin-d. 4.

Loss of appetite is commonly due to gastritis which can be due to cigarette smoking, alcohol or taking pain killers frequently. It can be due to intestinal worms or infection like amoebiasis causing loose motion now and then. It can be due to hidden infection like Tuberculosis causing only slight fever. It can be due to psychological reason like stress or depression.

Exercise for Belly Fat Not only females but also males desire to have flat belly. Fight your belly fat with the right kind of exercise and the right diet. Belly fat can be effectively reduced with abdominal exercises. They help you to tone the abdominal area apart from enhancing the flexibility of the area. The most important point is that they resist the accumulation of fat around the belly region. The only thing that you must keep in mind is that you must regularly perform these exercises and be patient as nothing happens overnight. Exercises for Losing Belly Fat Some very simple but effective exercises to lose belly fat: Stretch 1 – Lie down on a floor mat. Position your legs vertically up and stay in this position for 5 to 15 seconds. This can be repeated thrice. Stretch 2 – Lie down on a floor mat. Stretch your legs straight. Place your hands behind your head and lock your fingers. Now raise your torso and bring it towards your knees. Stay in this position for 5 to 10 seconds and slowly return to your lying position. Repeat this for 15 times in sets of 5. Stretch on Chair – Lie down on a floor mat and position yourself with a chair so as to raise your legs on the chair. Your legs should be at 90 degree to the rest of your body. Place your hands behind your head and clasp your fingers. Now lift your torso and rise up as if you want to touch the knees. Continue for 15 minutes and repeat in sets of 3 or 4. Cycling – Lie down on a floor mat. Raise your legs and rotate them as if you are pedalling a cycle vigorously. Repeat the exercise for five minutes in sets of three. Breathing Exercises to Lose Belly Fat Let us briefly understand on how these work. Oxygen acts as fuel for the body. The extra oxygen that you inhale while performing the breathing exercises result in certain chemical reactions that in turn burns up more calories than you actually take in. you lose extra fat. Pavanmuktasan – for practising Pavanmuktasan, take a deep breath as you lie on your back. Bend you left knee, hold your toes and pull it towards your stomach. Simultaneously lift your head and touch your bent knee. Your other leg must be straight. Breathe in and count ten. Return to your original position and breathe out. Repeat the set with your right leg. Bhujangasan – for practising Bhujangasan lie on your stomach and place your hands under your shoulders. Lift your torso backwards using only the back muscles and not your hands. Hold your breath for 5-10 seconds and slowly return to your original position as you breathe out. Dhanurasan – Lie on your stomach and bend your knees. Hold your ankles as you breathe in. push your body outwards in the shape of a bow and pull your head back as much as possible. Hold this position for 10 seconds and release the posture as you slowly breathe out. Apart from these there are aerobics that also help you to lose belly fat. Regular simple workouts like jogging, walking up and down through the stairs fast also helps to shed those stubborn belly fat. But remember, it is always advisable to seek the advice of a fitness instructor before you decide as exercise regimen for yourself in order to get the maximum results.

Hi, by improving your digestive system, you can increase your weight. 1. You must focus on getting the maximum nutrition out of the food that you are eating and digest that. To improve your digestive powers, you can take chitrakadi vati after meal and ashwagandha churna with water twice a day. 2. You can also have milk and milk products eg butter, ghee, etc along with banana shake.

Height is determined by a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors upto a certain age. Height is regulated by somatotropin hormone which gradually subside after adolescence. For males growth usually stops after puberty which is around 20yrs of age and for females it is 18 yrs, dont get deceived by false advertisements which claim to increase height post puberty, instead you can concentrate on looking tall by reducing weight giving yourself a lean or muscular appearance. If one has not crossed these ages then surely, one can help you.
