Unhealthy Habits To Avoid After Eating Food

You will seldom come across a person who does not like to eat. Nothing can be more satisfying than binging on your favorite cuisine. Though the choice of food may differ from individuals to individuals, most of us live to eat. It is not without reason that food is considered a fuel that gets the body going, enabling us to carry on with our daily chores. While hot, spicy and fast foods are what most of us crave for, one cannot ignore the health benefits of a balanced and nutritious diet. A diet enriched with the essential nutrients can play a significant role to keep the vital organs of the body fit and healthy.

Importance of a healthy and nutritious diet
A nutritious diet plays a pivotal role in maintaining the well-being of the body. From eyes to heart, it takes care of almost everything. Mentioned below are some of the food items that should be a part of your diet.

  1. Fruits: The health benefits of fruits deserve no special mention. Apple, banana, citrus fruits, berries, kiwi, guava, most of the fruits are laden with vitamins and minerals and go a long way to build the immunity and resistance of the body against various diseases and infections.
  2. Vegetables: A diet without vegetables is anything but healthy. From antioxidants (mostly dark green vegetables) to omega-3 fatty acids, minerals to dietary fibers, incorporating vegetables in the diet takes care of most of the nutritional requirements of the body.
  3. Meat: Equally important are animal products which include meat (chicken, lamb, crab, goat, duck, to name a few), fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna, tilapia, sardine, basa, to name a few), fish oil. Most of these are a rich source of proteins, vitamins, and minerals necessary for the overall growth of the body.
  4. Milk and dairy products: Milk, cheese, butter, curd, ghee, being an excellent source of calcium, vitamin, minerals, fats, proteins, should be included in the diet.
  5. Oils: One cannot miss out on the various benefits of ghee, especially of cow, mustard oil, coconut oil & olive oil and other healthy vegetable oils, such as sesame oil, rice bran oil, flaxseed oil to name a few, that are rich in nutrients including Omega-3 fatty acids.
  6. Cereals: The nutritive value of cereals (oats, rye, wheat, quinoa, rice) and pulses (black gram, lentils, chickpea, groundnuts) are also immense.
  7. Herbs & spices: The herbs and spices that make food more palatable are known for their anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-carcinogenic properties.

Unhealthy habits to avoid after eating food
There are certain unhealthy habits which when done immediately after eating food will do the body more harm than good. Some of these include:

  1. For a proper digestion of food, never take a nap soon after the meal.
  2. Taking a shower immediately after having food will also affect the digestion process.
  3. Many of us have a habit of drinking tea after a meal. However, it is an unhealthy practice that can interfere with both the digestion of food as well as with the absorption of iron.
  4. Eating fruits immediately after a meal will also affect the digestion of food.
  5. Smoking after a meal is an extremely unhealthy practice.

Want To Stay Happy & Healthy - Follow These 3 Things!

Want To Stay Happy & Healthy - Follow These 3 Things!

As we celebrate the Doctors’ day today, I wish to take this opportunity to hand over the 3 mantras to happiness. We all lead a very stressful life. Many of us have medical issues like hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol issues and so on. What should we do or should we have done rather so that we wouldn’t suffer from these lifestyle diseases?

Eat right:

As the maxim goes, you are what you eat. I would like to stress here that, diet is the single most important factor in our life which determines our longevity and disease pattern. Hence, it is important to eat right. Our diet should have a mix of about 40% complex carbohydrates like oats, whole wheat, brown bread, ragi, semolina and so on. High quality proteins should contribute 30% of our diet. Eggs, chicken, fish, meat, dal and pulses are good examples. Fats especially MUFA and PUFA should make 20% of the diet. Classic examples are sunflower oil, olive oil, rice bran oil. Avoid saturated fats, trans fats, margarine, ghee and butter. Pastry, Khari biscuits, toasts, cookies are rich in unhealthy saturated fats; hence best avoided. We should consume at least 3 servings of fruit daily. This is important because fruits are rich in vitamins, fibre and anti-oxidants.

Sleep well:

A rested mind in a rested body is the best state of happiness. We need to sleep at least 7 to 8 hours daily. The body recharges during the rest and makes it ready for the next day aggressions. With the smartphone entering our bedroom, the sleep pattern has been disturbed. We end up sleeping late while checking Whats App messages and so on. As a result the total sleep duration goes down and we get up in an irritable and sleep deprived state. Such a state is not conducive to healthy work the next day. Avoid checking smartphone apps and messages, reading newspapers just before sleeping and avoid tea/coffee/caffeine in any form post 7pm. This will make sure we sleep on time and get up on time.

Exercise:

This is the last and the most important mantra that can lead to ultimate bliss and happiness. We need to exercise at least 30 min. daily for 5 days a week. This can be aerobic exercises like cycling, swimming, jogging, running and so on. Weight lifting for 45 min daily for about 5 days a week is ideal to build a well sculpted and muscular beach body that we all want. Exercising keeps our joints mobile, conditions our heart to strain, releases growth hormone and testosterone which keep you young. Endorphins released in the brain during the exercise make you feel good as though you are on the seventh sky.

I hope readers would take these mantras seriously and implement them religiously all through. This will go a long way in keeping our population happy and reach nirvana!

Rice Bran Oil - Is It Really Good For You?

Rice Bran Oil - Is It Really Good For You?

Rice bran oil is the oil extracted from the outer layer of the rice grain called the bran. Rice bran oil is popularly known as the “healthy oil”. But how healthy is it really?

Benefits of rice bran oil

  1. Ideal balance of polyunsaturated fats (PUFA) and monounsaturated fats (MUFA) - Rice bran has 37 percent polyunsaturated fats and 45 percent monounsaturated fats, almost a 1:1 ratio.
  2. Most other cooking oils are all polysaturated fats - rich. Rice bran oil also has no trans-fats. This makes rice bran oil great for prevention of cardiovascular disease.
  3. Heart friendly - Rice bran can help lower cholesterol because it contains oryzanol, a potent antioxidant. Oryzanol helps retard cholesterol absorption and increases its elimination.
  4. It lowers Cholesterol - The World Health Organization (WHO) and The American Heart Association recommend rice bran oil for reducing cholesterol levels in the blood.
  5. It doesn’t stick to food - Rice bran oil is less viscous than other cooking oils. This means it does not stick to food. This makes rice bran ideal for deep frying foods.
  6. Vitamin E rich - Rice bran has a good quantity of Vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant and has anti-mutagenic properties too. This means it prevents you from cancer. Vitamin E also helps boost immunity.
  7. Rice bran has anti-inflammatory properties - Studies have shown that rice bran can reduce the effects of menopause like hot flashes due to its strong anti-inflammatory properties.
  8. Rice bran may aid in weight loss -  Rice bran is rich in natural anti-oxidants. These antioxidants can boost your metabolic rate and may help with weight-loss. These anti-oxidants also give the oil a longer shelf life.
  9. Healthy for skin - You can use rice bran to help against skin conditions like eczema. Squalene, a compound present in rice bran oil is easily absorbed by the skin and keeps it supple, soft, and youthful.

Some limitations of rice bran oil
Rice bran has many positives, but it has a few negatives as well like

  1. One of the substances in rice bran might decrease calcium absorption. This can give rise to the formation of certain types of kidney stones.
  2. Rice bran lowers high “LDL” or bad cholesterol but it does not seem to affect other blood fats such as triglycerides. It also doesn’t increase the “good” high-density lipoprotein cholesterol.
  3. One has to be careful to take the right amount of the oil in their diet. Too much rice bran in the diet can cause unpredictable bowel movements, gas, and stomach discomfort.
  4. There is also insufficient evidence to suggest that rice bran can help in the prevention of diabetes. So don’t believe the over- hype which is not backed by research.
  5. It’s also contraindicated for people with GI problems like intestinal ulcers and conditions that cause narrowing or blockage of your digestive tract.

The above positives and negatives give us a fair idea that though rice bran oil is good, but it might not be suitable for everyone. Thus, it is advisable that one should chose a oil based on their health requirements. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

What is a diabetic diet?

Dr. Savita Jain 90% (411 ratings)

Endocrinologist, Ludhiana
What is a diabetic diet?

Diabetic diet ( also known as medical nutrition therapy) is actually a healthy balanced diet that everybody should follow. It doesn't mean living in deprivation, giving up your favourite foods particularly sweets completely or resigning yourself to tasteless food. It just means a balanced diet, not necessarily bland.

It is very important to follow this diet at all the stages of diabetes management, including pre diabetic stage to prevent the onset of diabetes or even to reverse it. For this, you don't have to shed all those extra kilos, just a loss of 5-10% of your initial body weight will do the job.

Basic principles of a diabetic diet

  1. Diabetic diet plan should be such that it is high in nutrients, with low fat and carbohydrates.

  2. Moderate restriction in calories have to be there if you are overweight or obese.

Carbohydrates-

  • Avoid sugars (beverages like soda, energy and sports drinks, coffee drinks and processed foods like doughnuts, muffins, candy bars) and starches (rice, potato, refined wheat flour) as they break down into glucose with digestion. Also these are more likely to cause abdominal obesity ( increased waistline which is more prone for heart disease).
  • Eat healthy carbohydrates like vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole-grains and low fat dairy products.

Fat-

  • Select foods containing ‘good’ fats like monounsaturated fats and linoleic acid.
  • Restrict total amount to approximately half kilogram per person per month or 3 tsp per person per day.
  • Prefer oils containing alpha linoleic acid (good for heart) - like mustard oil, soybean oil and rice bran oil.
  • All these oils can be used on a rotation basis each month.
  • Avoid bakery products like biscuits, cakes, sweets and fried snacks like chips, french fries, burger, samosas, pakoras, pizza.

Protein

  • Amount of protein should be such that it provides 15-20% of total calories (approximately 1gm/kg body weight).

Two types of proteins are available -

  • Class 1 or complete- e.g. meat, milk, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese and soy. They should provide 50% of daily protein intake.
  • Class 2 or incomplete- These generally lack one or the other essential amino acids. Examples- legumes, pulses and cereals. These can be used in different combinations to cover up for the deficient amino acids.

Micronutients - A balanced diet with adequate amount of fruits and vegetables should supply all the required micronutrients. Diabetics do not usually need extra supplementation.

Eat fibre rich food (all parts of plant foods that body cant digest and absorb) like vegetables, fruits, beans, peas, whole wheat flour, wheat bran.

  • Don’t starve yourself. Eat something every 3-4 hours.

  • If at times you feel like eating sugar, take small quantity and avoid any carbohydrate for that day e.g. rice, potato etc that you would normally have taken.
  • You can also adjust the dose of insulin accordingly.
  • Don’t forget to check your blood sugar after eating sweets.

- Avoid Alcohol

Why Eating Right & Sleeping Well Is Important Part Of Your Life?

Soya Oil Vs Rice Oil - Which One Is Beneficial?

Soya Oil Vs Rice Oil - Which One Is Beneficial?

Race among the various healthy edible oils is still on and it will keep going as oils have their unique properties and flavors, which are beneficial for the proper functioning of our body. The fat intake, obtained from cooking oils should consist of balanced fat, as it would provide important nutrients to sustain a fit and healthy life. 

Rice bran and Soybean oil are edible vegetable oils commonly used in Asian countries. All oils have their unique flavors and properties which give them their own pros and cons.

Rice bran oil
Obtained from rice bran (rice husks), it is mild and nutty in flavor which leaves no lingering aftertaste. It is one of the most balanced oil with 47% MUFA, 33% PUFA, and 20% SFA.

Health benefits of rice bran oil

  1. Contains Tocotrienols which are members of the vitamin E family with natural antioxidant properties that can help prevent cardiovascular diseases and some types of cancer.
  2. Rice bran oil is unique in containing Oryzanol, a powerful antioxidant. Studies have shown that it can reduce plasma cholesterol and cholesterol absorption. This can lead to decrease in early atherosclerosis, inhibition of platelet aggregation, and increase in faecal bile acid excretion. Oryzanol also has been used to treat nerve imbalance and disorders of menopause.
  3. Rice bran oil contains high levels of antioxidants. This helps in boosting metabolic rate, which in turn aids weight loss.
  4. Rice bran oil is also considered extremely good for the skin. It contains Squalene that can be easily by the skin, which keeps it supple, soft, and smooth.

Soya bean oil
The oil is obtained from the soybean seeds and has an imperceptible odor support which enhances the natural flavors. It contains 53% PUFA and 27% MUFA and consists of only 15% SFA.

Health benefits of soya bean oil

  1. It is a modest source of antioxidant vitamin E which protects cell membrane, skin, and mucosa from harmful oxygen-free radicals.
  2. Soya bean oil contains phytosterols, which is a class of naturally-occurring compounds found in plants that are similar to cholesterol. Due to this structural similarity, phytosterols competitively inhibit cholesterol absorption in the gut and can reduce blood cholesterol levels by 10% -15%.
  3. Soya bean oil also contains vitamin K, which helps in bone formation and can prevent nerve damage in the brain that makes it useful in Alzheimer’s disease.

When comparing the two, rice bran oil is considered one of the best in terms of quality and various other factors. However, soya bean oil is no less and is highly preferred due to the affordability and availability. Both rice bran oil and soya bean oil have a high smoke point and are considered good for high heat cooking. Both oils also contain vitamin E and are rich in antioxidants. Rice bran oil is, however, regarded as a better option for females during their menopause period, as the chemical content present in it lessens the pain. However, soya bean oil contains no cholesterol, making it an excellent choice for patients suffering from heart diseases or high cholesterol levels.

Rice - Is There Any Nutrition In It?

Rice - Is There Any Nutrition In It?

Rice is one of the most common non-allergens beneficial for people who are sensitive to gluten, which is a type of protein commonly found in wheat and its products. Also, rice is low in sodium, unlike chapatis, which makes it ideal for those who have trouble managing hypertension. Further, opposite to the common adage white rice has a negligible amount of sugar and fat.

People who wish to lose weight can go for brown rice, as here the outer layer is retained, making it high in fiber and other nutrients. Whereas, white rice is processed and polished, resulting in loss of vital nutrients during milling. Additionally, using rice bran oil can help people in keeping their bad cholesterol levels in check. 

Below mentioned is the list of nutrients present in rice 

  1. Carbohydrates: Rice is a good source of carbohydrates and in many cases, it is the main source of carbohydrates, as it contains digestible starch. This is equally good bad as the human digestive system is deficit in the enzyme that is required to digest it. Thus, it takes time to digest rice and is not absorbed readily into the blood. During the absorption process, rice is converted into short chain fatty acids in the small intestine and goes all the way to the large intestine where it is finally absorbed.
  2. Proteins: Rice contains a good amount of dietary protein, which is essential for repair of body tissues on a regular basis.
  3. Vitamins: Vitamin B complex in rice regulates the body’s chemical reactions and is known to burn food into energy. It also contains small amounts of vitamin B1 (thiamine), B3 (niacin), B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin E.
  4. Minerals: Rice is also a good source of iron and zinc, which protects the body from free radical damage, which are chemicals that can lead to the development of cancerous cells. 

Types of rice
White rice is what has always been most popular. However, with the recent shift in eating habits, more people are switching to brown rice, which is white rice plus the husk. The husk of the rice has additional fiber and is richer in terms of nutrients. Brown rice, not only has lesser calories as compared to white rice (170 calories vs. 220 calories for a medium cup serving), it is also packed with additional minerals, such as manganese, selenium, magnesium and potassium. Eating brown rice can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by half and aids in weight loss too.  It may just seem like a cup of rice, but it sure is loaded. In case of a concern or query consult an expert & get answers to questions!

Rice Bran Oil Benefits And Side Effects In Hindi - चावल की भूसी के तेल के फायदे और नुकसान

चावल एक लोकप्रिय खाद्यपदार्थ है जिसके कई फायदे हैं. इसी तरह चावल की भूसी तेल के तेल के भी फायदे काफी हैं. इसे चावल के गुठलियों के भूसे से निकाला जाता है. इसका इस्तेमाल ज्यादा तापमान पर खाना बनाने के लिए या डीप फ्राइंग में किया जाता है. देखने में ये मूंगफली के तेल जैसा ही होता है. लेकिन चावल की भूसी के तेल के फायदे मूंगफली के तेल से भिन्न है. इसमें विटामिन ई, एंटीऑक्सिडेंट, संतुलित फैटी एसिड आदि प्रमुखता से पाया जाता है. चावल की भूसी के फायदे और नुकसान निम्लिखित हैं.

1. त्वचा के लिए
त्वचा के स्वास्थ्य के लिए चावल की भूसी में विटामिन ई पाया जाता है. ये घाव भरने, नई कोशिकाएं बनाने, झुर्रियों को कम करने सूर्य के हानिकारक किरणों से त्वचा की रक्षा करने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है. विटामिन ई, त्वचा के विषाक्त पदार्थों को भी दूर करने का काम करता है. इसमें पाया जाने वाला एंटीऑक्सिडेंट मुक्त कणों को नष्ट करके त्वचा की कोशिकाओं को जवान रखने में मदद करता है.
2. लीवर साफ़ रखने में
इसमें कई ऐसे यौगिक पाए जाते हैं जो कि हमारे लीवर को ठीक से कार्य करने के लिए और इसे साफ़ रखने में मदद करते हैं. इसमें पाया जाने वाला फैटी एसिड भी ऐसा ही एक तत्व है जो कि लीवर के लिए काफी अच्छा काम करता है. इसे कई बिमारियों से बचाने में इसकी भूमिका हो सकती है.
3. कोलेस्ट्राल कम करने में
हमारे शरीर में बढ़ता हुआ कोलेस्ट्राल का स्तर कई परेशानियों को उत्पन्न करता है. चावल की भूसी में मोनोअनसैचुरेटेड, पॉलिअनसैचुरेटेड और संतृप्त वसा का बेहतरीन संतुलन पाया जाता है. फैटी एसिड का ये संतुलन कोलेस्ट्राल को कम करने का काम करता है. चावल की भूसी एथोरोसक्लोरोसिस, दिल के दौरे और स्ट्रोक जैसी बिमारियों को भी ख़त्म करने में मदद करता है.
4. बालों के लिए
इसमें पाया जाने वाला फेरिलिक एसिड और एस्टर बालों के विकास में योगदान देते हैं. इसमें एंटीऑक्सिडेंट, विटामिन ई, ओमेगा-3 और ओमेगा-6 प्रचुर मात्रा में पाया जाता है. ये सभी बालों को पोषण देने में महत्वपूर्ण योगदान देते हैं. इसके नियमित प्रयोग से बालों की सुन्दरता में वृद्धि होती है.
5. रजनोवृत्ति के दौरान
कई शोधों में ये पाया गया है कि चावल की भूसी का तेल रजनोवृत्ति के दौरान महिलाओं को होने वाली परेशानियों से बचाने का काम करता है. ये इस दौरान होने वाले चिड़चिड़ापन जैसे कई अन्य परेशानियों को काफी हद तक कम करता है. इसलिए महिलाएं रजनोवृत्ति के दौरान इसका इस्तेमाल करके अपनी परेशानियों को कम कर सकती हैं.
6. वजन कम करने में
चावल की भूसी के तेल में चिपचिपापन बहुत कम होता है लेकिन इसमें कैलोरी अधिक होती है. इसकी सबसे बड़ी खासियत ये है कि ये भोजन में बहुत कम मात्रा में (लगभग 20%) ही अवशोषित होता है. जिससे कि भोजन का स्वाद बरकरार रहता है. इसलिए इसके इस्तेमाल से वजन भी कम होता है.
7. कैंसर के उपचार में
कैंसर जैसी खतरनाक बीमारयों को भी दूर करने की क्षमता चावल की भूसी में होती है. क्योंकि इसमें एंटीऑक्सिडेंट भरपूर मात्रा में पाई जाती है. इसमें ऑरिजानोल और विटामिन ई भी पाया जाता है जो कि अधिकाँश तेलों में नहीं पाया जाता है. इन्हीं तत्वों के बदौलत ये कैंसर जैसी बीमारियों से हमें बचाने का गुण रखता है.
8. एलर्जी दूर करने में
अन्य वनस्पति तेलों में नहीं पाया जाने वाला हाइपोलेर्गेनिक नामक तत्व, चावल की भूसी में पाया जाता है. ये एलर्जी की संभावनाओं को काफी हद तक कम कर देता है. इस तेल को खाने से एलर्जी नहीं होती है. लेकिन ये एलर्जी होने की संभावनाओं को भी कम करता है.

चावल की भूसी के नुकसान

  • इसका इस्तेमाल संकुचित पाचन तंत्र वाले लोगों के लिए परेशानी का कारण बन सकता है.
  • इसे अधिक मात्रा में इस्तेमाल करने से बचना चाहिए.

Can You Use Sheet Masks Daily?

Dr. Deepti Dhillon 86% (170 ratings)
MBBS, DDV, Aesthetic medicine
Dermatologist, Delhi
Can You Use Sheet Masks Daily?
  • Sheet masks are an extra luxurious part of the korean beauty regime. Their main aim is to provide extra nourishment to your skin having few women in korea use it twice a day! yes, that’s right! with how affordable the sheet masks are nowadays, it leaves us wondering whether we could use it everyday?
  • The answer is yes, it’s fine to use sheet masks everyday as long as it’s not a glycolic acid containing sheet mask. Using sheet masks labeled ‘anti-aging’, which are usually formulated with glycolic acid are too strong for daily use and can cause irritation. Also those prone to acne shouldn’t use sheet mask everyday as it can aggravate acne because it is occlusive and can block pores, which can lead bacteria to grow on the skin. So, if you are acne prone then stick to using sheet mask only once a week.
  • As for everyone else, using sheet mask everyday can boost hydration levels as it helps to push ingredients into the skin. As for which sheet mask to use, look specifically for one with ceramides, squalene, hyaluronic acid, rice bran oil and macadamia oil – (all help to moisturize skin). If you are looking to brighten your skin, look for niacinamide, vitamin c and licorice root extract in your sheet mask.
