M. -have a light breakfast (poha/upma/idli/oats/porridge) -take a juice/lemon juice/green tea/black coffee with one light biscuit at 12: 00 -take lunch (you may have steam rice or chapati) with homemade dal and sabzi, with dahi or butter milk. (eat 20% less than your regular lunch portion) at 2: 00 p. M. -again take a healthy fruit at 4: 00 p. M. -take tea/coffee/milk with a light biscuit/chiwda/dry bhel/roasted namkeen/popcorn at 6: 00p. M. -have an early dinner, take khichdi or soup with a slice of wheat bread. Eat as much as you need, not less, not more. -do not have anything after dinner.

Hi Lybrate User, Right now you are about 15 Kgs extra. Plus you have discovered serious issues like Blood Sugar + Thyroid. 1. I think your focus right now should be on how to manage the problem of Blood Sugar. 2. Thyroid can be easily taken care of by regular medicines. 3. As for taking artificial supplements you have already seen the immense damage they can do to your body. 4. I would suggest please stop taking all such supplements immediately before those toxic chemicals cause permanent damage to your body. 5. Please switch over to natural forms of proteins like Eggs, Chicken, Paneer, Legumes, Chickpea, Soya Beans, Rajma, Dry Fruits etc. 6. When body is showing certain abnormal symptoms, it is giving you a message. 7. The message is clear ' Switch to Nature'. Earlier the better for your health.

To remain healthy and Fit ,you should follow 3 steps in your life 1.BALANCED DIET 2.EARLY MORNING BRISK MORNING WALK for 30 minutes and 10 minutes evening walk after Dinner 3.DRINK 6-8 Glasse of water daily. As 60% of our body is made of water, it acts as a carrier of essential nutrients inside our body. Loosing as little as 5% of body's weight as water can cause headache, fatigue and lower your muscle strength. To stay healthy, an adult should drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday. Balanced Diet= 60% Carbohydrates + 20% Fats + 20% Proteins 1. Carbohydrates: Our main source of energy. Stored in liver and muscles. Carbohydrates are used the most by our body duringexercise. Hence, it is important for people who exercise regularly to consume a diet rich in carbohydrates. (a) Instant/rapid carbohydrates energy sources: Banana, Milk, Sweets, Sugarcane juice. (b) Slow carbohydrates energy sources: Beans, Bread, Cereals, Potato, Pulses, Rice. 2. Proteins: Essential for growth, repair of muscle, skin, hair and body tissues. Protein deficiency leads to low immunity, hairfall, feeling of tiredness. Proteins are not stored in our body as any excess protein is converted to energy or fat. Hence, a person requires protein intake every day. When the body does not get enough carbohydrates to fuel itself, it falls back on protein bank. That is why people who follow starvation diets or go on fasting lose muscle tissue. (a) Major protein sources: Egg white(white portion), Milk, Soybeans/Soymilk, Fish, Cheese, Tofu. (b) Other protein sources: Beans with wheat, Nuts, Curd, Yogurt (Dahi). 3. Fats: Required and healthy when taken in small amounts. Excess fat leads to weight gain, increase in bad cholesterol (LDL) and heartproblems (a) Major fats sources: Egg yolk (Yellow portion), Avocados, Whole Milk, Butter, Cheese, Nuts. (b) Other fats sources: Corn, Vegetable/Olive oil, Biscuits, Flaxseeds(San Beej). 4. Vitamins and Minerals: Critical for normal functioning of organs and processes within our body. They do not provide energy directly but work behind the scenes to break down food into energy. 5. Fiber: It helps retain water and in making our stools softer to avoid constipation. Intake should be 25 to 35 grams a day. 6. Calories: A measure of how much energy food or drink contains. On an average, a man needs around 2,000 calories a day and a woman 1700 calories a day to maintain his weight and good health. Number varies by person depending upon weight, age and how active the lifestyle is. 7. Guideline: Each day have 3 main meals, 2 snacks, 5 pieces of fruit and at least 1 glass of milk. 4. BRAMARI PRANAYAM or Bee Breath 1.Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. 2.Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each pinky finger near a nostril. 3.Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. .4.Use your pinkies to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. .5.Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6.Repeat twenty times.starting from 5 times In Nut-Shell,THINK GOOD,EAT GOOD,SLEEP GOOD andby adopting these 3 point in your life you will remain fit as ever.

Hi, regular outdoor exercise helps to stimulate appetite. Take 2 banana with warm milk in the morning. Take dates with milk in the morning. You should take high calories food that increase your muscle mass and induce growth in bones. Include protein rich food in your diet. Peanut butter is another yummy remedy for gaining weight. Stop eating junk and processed food. Take small and frequent meals. You can consult me privately online on lybrate i" ll give you menu plan.
