4 Bad Eating Habits You Need To Quit Today

Consciously or sub-consciously, we all are guilty of developing bad eating habits. Such habits may seem harmless but actually prove to be quite dangerous in the longer run. Here’s a list of some bad eating habits and if you are guilty of any one of them, it’s time to quit.

Bad Eating Habits: #1: Skipping Breakfast

I am sure that all of us have heard that a breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The best dieticians in India say that it’s true and should rigorously be followed. The first meal of the day i.e. the breakfast serves as a fuel that keeps us energetic and going throughout the day. Hence, if you have a habit of skipping breakfast make sure you quit it immediately.

Are you confused about what you should have for breakfast? Or do you have certain food allergies that might restrict your breakfast items? If so, you can consult the best dieticians in India for the same. A registered dietician will help you make a breakfast plan that is healthy and suited to your needs. You can also consult online dieticians. The best diet plans will also give you added benefits such as weight loss.

Bad Eating Habits: #2: Munching all the way

Who doesn’t love munching on snacks and packed foods? We all do. But this is one habit that is harming our bodies. While indulging a little once in a while is alright, mindless munching is very dangerous.

To avoid mindless munching, many online dieticians suggest that you do not keep your kitchen counters stacked with packed and unhealthy food items. Having a kitchen full of snacks will only result in more and more munching.

Bad Eating Habits: #3: Food Addictions

We are all addicted to certain kind of foods. Some have chocolate addiction, some caffeine while some may have an addiction of potato chips or sweet treats. But all these food items, if consumed on a regular basis, may prove to be harmful. Hence, it is crucial that these addictions get broken.

The best dietician in India suggests that you break such addictions gradually. Decrease their intake a little, and then keep on decreasing until you have your addiction under control.

Bad Eating Habits: #4: Late Night Eating

This is another bad eating habit that you need to break. Online dieticians say that you must not eat anything after your night meal. The best dieticians in India say that it’s the worst habit that you can have.

To break this habit, consider that your kitchen is closed after dinner until breakfast.

Magnesium Deficiency - Signs That Your Body Is Giving You!

Magnesium Deficiency - Signs That Your Body Is Giving You!

We all know about magnesium as a mineral, but what most individuals do not know is the fact that it is a very important mineral for our bodily health. Magnesium is involved with more or less 300 complex metabolic processes in our body, thus earning the title of ‘master mineral’.

Here is a list of reasons why magnesium holds an important place in our body.

It is responsible for transportation of calcium across cell membranes. As such, it helps calcium get into the bone matter. Like we all know, magnesium is anti-inflammatory. It helps in waiving conditions mentioned below:

  1. Arthritis
  2. Alzheimer’s disease
  3. High blood pressure
  4. Respiratory issues
  5. Diabetes

So magnesium deficiency can definitely cause numerous problems in the human body. This element works in our body at a cellular level. It is important to have a check up done with the doctor to ensure the magnesium level, however, a simple a blood test cannot determine the presence or absence of it.

Here are a few signs that might suggest that an individual is suffering from magnesium deficiency.

  1. A lot of calcium deficiency which means brittle bones
  2. Very poor heart health
  3. A lot of unnecessary weakness
  4. Very frequent muscle cramps at unusual situations
  5. Tremors, nausea and unnecessary anxiety
  6. High blood pressure and type 2 diabetes
  7. Difficulty in swallowing the food
  8. Poor memory
  9. Lots and lots of useless confusion

Although individuals with magnesium deficiency suffer from these symptoms, it is not necessary that any individual suffering from such symptoms might have magnesium deficiency. So, the only way to improve magnesium amount in the body is by changing your diet and including magnesium rich foods or my supplementing your food with magnesium-based food products.

Magnesium overdose is close to impossible and so many would not check their magnesium intake. However, consuming too much of anything can never be a good idea. Excessive magnesium intake might end up causing the following issues:

  • Irregular heartbeats in individuals
  • Slow breathing
  • Diarrhoea

This excess amount of magnesium in the body might be due to the fact that not all supplements can be easily absorbed by the body. So it is a better idea to eat inexpensive food to keep the magnesium levels at par with the bodily requirements.

Here is a list of items that can relieve the deficiency symptoms of low magnesium.

  1. Seeds of pumpkin
  2. Seeds of sun flower
  3. Soya bean
  4. Black beans
  5. Sesame seeds
  6. Almond
  7. Spinach and many more

Celiac Disease And Diet

Celiac disease
Celiac disease (gluten-sensitive enteropathy), sometimes called sprue or coeliac, is an immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.
If you have celiac disease, eating gluten triggers an immune response in your small intestine. Over time, this reaction damages your small intestine's lining and prevents absorption of some nutrients (malabsorption). The intestinal damage often causes diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, bloating and anemia, and can lead to serious complications cutting out gluten from diet and including healthy and delicious foods that are naturally gluten-free may help to improve its complications.
Foods such as meat, fish, fruits, vegetables, rice, and potatoes without additives or seasonings do not contain gluten and are part of a well-balanced diet. 
You can eat potato, rice, soy, amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, or bean flour instead of wheat flour.
You can eat gluten-free types of bread or pasta
Avoiding foods with gluten is critical in treating celiac disease. Removing gluten from your diet will improve symptoms, heal damage to your small intestine, and prevent further damage over time.

The High Protein Diet - What You Must Know?

The High Protein Diet - What You Must Know?

Protein is said to be a building block for the body. That being said, a high protein diet can either have some great results to show, or some terrible consequences. As long as a person is willing to learn more about it, only the former will appear!

When a person thinks of a diet which is high in protein, the automatic association is with the famed Atkins diet. This is a diet which is not only high in the amount of protein consumed but is low in the relative amount of carbohydrate.

Who is it For?

A high protein diet is a way to go, if a person is looking to build a little muscle and does not consume enough protein in his or her current or normal diet. However, studies have found that only professional endurance athletes showed any benefits from a hike in their consumption levels of protein and that too, they could have received these benefits by just eating more food. So, it is fair to say that the normal person is not likely to need more protein than what he or she already gets by the way of his or her run of the mill diet.

It can be bad too, in addition to this, if a person has an amount of protein which is beyond what is good for him or her according to the activity level, it can be quite bad. This is because a lot of the sources of protein which most people receive their protein from also happen to be quite high in terms of the saturated fat content, which can put the heart at a great amount of risk. Moreover, gout can also occur and it is something that is not curable, but can only be managed. A person who is considering the prospect of going on a high protein diet should take these possible side effects into due account prior to making his or her decision regarding the same.

Small is Big A, modest increase in the protein part of a person’s diet can be good and there are a variety of ways a person can go about this including by having some simple munch foods such as almonds. Things like these can serve well as snacks and can go a long way in preventing a person from bingeing on something less healthy just due to his or her being ravenously hungry. Another option is Greek yogurt, as is chia seeds, which can be added to almost anything!
