Hi, triglyceride is high as it should be below 150. Restrict sugar, potato, white rice, butter, fried items and bakery foods. Vitamin d too is deficit for which you need to start medical supplements given by your doctor. Sunbath of 15-20 mins daily in strong sun will help too besides cow's milk and products. Have small frequent meals and take a well balanced diet, exercise for 30-40 minutes daily.

Hi, Milk is a complete food. It is high in Protein, Calcium and vitamin D. Taking it twice a day is absolutely fine, but without sugar.

Can we eat non-veg at night? The new diets that are being suggested today focuses on protein and fat content over carbohydrates. As any non-veg food contains protein and fat, it takes longer time to digest. But it also spoils the timing of breakfast the next day.

Hi, Horlicks is an energy drink. Its high on carbohydrate. Its definitely not recomended for overweight or obese individuals. It can be a good weight gainer and adding it to milk is nourishing as milk is a complete food.

Hi, Fish is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids which are essential fats for your body. These fats have anti-inflammatory properties and are great immunity boosters. However sea food allergies are very common and should be taken care. About 3-4 times a weak you can take 2-3 pcs.

Water intake should be optimum. Water helps to flush out the toxins from the body. Water intake also depends upon your activity level. Excess and forcefully adding water to your routine may cause electrolyte imbalance. A normal healthy person should take 3-4 litres water per day.

Omad diet is one meal a day diet. But it is not possible for everyone to have meal once a day. We need energy for our daily activities and we need to refuel as per our activity level. So it is important to have well balanced meals at different timings of the day as per our routine. And add fiber to each meal. Our plate should be a combination of carbs, proteins, good fats and vitamins in a well balanced way.

It's good for brain or bad.
Caffeine in the form of tea or coffee should be taken in limit. It is because it hampers the nutritional absorption in the body and if taken in excess it can cause nutritional deficiencies.
