Food Items To Include In Your Diet To Gain Muscle!

The obsession of getting the perfect body has grown into everyone's psyche. Thanks to well-equipped gyms and easily available home kits, this obsession is no longer a dream. But the gym trainers and bodybuilders suggest that in order to build muscles, following a healthy diet is also necessary. A healthy diet helps in developing the central muscle mass and burns the extra fat in the body.

Here is a list of food items you should include in your diet which will help you to gain muscle:

  1. Eggs: Eggs are rich in proteins and help in the overall development of the muscles, making it a must-have inclusion in your dietary regime. Also, the good cholesterol found in the egg yolks helps in preventing atherosclerosis.
  2. Nuts: Nuts such as cashews, almonds or pistachios are a perfect blend of fats, fibres, and proteins. Every measure of cashew or almonds contains 150-170 of top-class calories. Daily intake in a small amount will help you to get the calories without any significant weight gain.
  3. Lentils: Lentils are useful to develop the central mass of the body. A cup of ready-to-eat lentils has a protein content of 18 grams and overall content of 40 grams of top grade carbohydrates. A diet consisting of green salad, lentils and brown rice is recommended by gym trainers for the development of body muscles.
  4. Spinach: Spinach contains rich amounts of the amino acid called 'glutamine', which helps in the development of the lean muscles. Besides, a daily intake of spinach might also help to build the overall muscle strength of the body.
  5. Apples: Apples contain certain polyphenols which help to build the muscles and prevent any form of tiredness in the muscles. Also, polyphenols are even useful in burning the extra fat which makes it an essential fruit to have before workouts. If you are not comfortable with apple, you might also try oranges as your pre-workout fruit, which perform more or less the same function as apples.

Note: Besides the above-mentioned ones, you can also include oatmeal, yogurt, organic milk, fat-free chicken & beans in your dietary routine for muscle development, along with regimented bodybuilding schedules.

Know About Causes & Treatment For Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome!

Testosterone is a hormone, which grows the most effective at the time of your puberty. This is the main substance, which helps you to grow your chest hair, then helps to deepen your voice, boosts the growth of your penis and helps to build up your muscle.

After a certain point of age, most of the men start experiencing a decline in testosterone. If you are not being sexually aroused then the lack of testosterone can be one reason. A large number of men erroneously believe that their lack of sex drive is accompanied by their old age.

Some possible causes for testosterone deficiency may include: 

  • Infection, injury or problems in the testicles.

  • Chemotherapy or radiation to cure cancer.

  • Genetic abnormalities.

  • Dysfunction in the hypothalamus and pituitary gland.

  • Inflammatory disease in the lungs or heart.

  • Certain effects of medication.

  • Alcoholism.

  • Abnormal obesity.

Testosterone deficiency can lead a man to a plethora of different sexual problems. The production of the hormone is connected to your brain and inadequate testosterone can cause many problems, which may include:

  1. Loss of sex drive.

  2. Feeling ill and low on confidence.

  3. Difficulty concentrating.

  4. Muscle mass decrease.

  5. Decreased haemoglobin and anaemia.

  6. Fragile bones.

Vital Vitamins For Musculoskeletal Health!

Vital Vitamins For Musculoskeletal Health!

When you think about a healthy diet, you wonder how much carbohydrate, protein, fats and minerals you need to stay fit. However, are you neglecting the importance of vitamins in your daily diet? Research suggests that vitamins play a crucial role in muscle building and bone health.

Here is a look at the different vitamins that will help you enhance your muscles and bones using vitamins.

1. Vitamin D-

You may have heard about the importance of calcium for proper bone health. However, only consuming calcium-rich foods will not help you develop stronger bones. If you do not have enough vitamin D in your body, you will not be able to use the excess calcium for bone health. Vitamin D helps your body utilize the calcium for bone growth and enhancement.

Apart from strengthening your bones, vitamin D also works wonders for your muscles. It helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus, both of which are essential elements in the production of adenosine triphosphate or ATP. ATP is the only form of energy that your muscles can use during movements and activities.

Best sources for vitamin D are cheese, egg yolk, certain fatty fish, shrimp, mushrooms, soya milk, orange juice and cereals.

2. Vitamin K2-

Vitamin K2, also known as menaquinone, improves your cardiovascular health. Vitamin K2 is also a coenzyme that helps your bone use proteins. Additionally, a study performed in 2013 revealed that vitamin K2 improves bone metabolism in post-menopausal women. At such an age, women’s bone health starts to deteriorate and osteoporosis sets in. Therefore, vitamin K2 becomes all the more important for women at such an age.

Best sources of vitamin K2 are butter, cheese, egg yolk, dark chicken meat, and fermented soy.

3. Vitamin C-

Vitamin C is a great choice if you work out regularly. A powerful antioxidant, it helps your body metabolize proteins in the body, leading to muscle growth. Additionally, vitamin C helps in the absorption of iron, which is an essential component of blood.

Best food sources for vitamin C are citrus fruits, such as oranges, lemons and more. Additionally, green capsicum, broccoli, and blackcurrants also provide ample amounts of vitamin C to your body.

Even though vitamins and supplements have a role to play in building stronger bones and muscles, the only diet will not be enough for a fit body. You need to start exercising along with eating a balanced diet if you want to stay healthy. Furthermore, exercising helps improve your musculoskeletal health.

6 Quick Fixes To Ensure Healthy Fulfilling Life!

"Health is wealth” is not just a proverb, but a truly time-tested principle of life. The concern is that of late health and wellness have acquired a commercial tone. Companies manufacturing various health and wellness products are promoting various health benefits of their products in television and print media. Claims and counterclaims by various companies have cluttered the perspective. People need to cut out the clutter and behold some quick fixes that would ensure healthy, fulfilling lives.

  1. Exercising Enough -
    The importance of exercise cannot be overemphasized at any point. One needs to exercise regularly in order to stay healthy. But how much exercise is enough for anybody to stay healthy?

    The Department of Health and Human Services has recommended the following exercise patterns:
    1. Aerobic Activity -
      If a person is doing aerobics, he/she needs to continue it for at least 2 and a half hours at a moderate pace or 1 hour 15 minutes at a vigorous pace in a week. The doubtful point is that one needs to spread out the activity through the week and follow a daily routine, but do at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. Moderate aerobics may include swimming, brisk walking, mowing the lawn, etc., while vigorous aerobics may include running, aerobic dancing, etc.
    2. Strength Training 
      Strength training exercises train the muscles. One can do this at least twice a week. It includes weight training as well as resistance training. The best thing is to do both alternatively.​
  2. Quitting Smoking -
    The importance of quitting smoking has been stressed by physicians and health care practitioners time and again. Quitting smoking surely has an influence on health. It has been observed that around 20 minutes after smoking the last cigarette, the blood pressure and pulse come back to normal. The hands and feet also warm up to natural degrees of heat. After about 8 hours, half of the nicotine and carbon monoxide that the person had inhaled is gone.
  3. Eating More Fruits and Vegetables -
    Fruits and vitamins contain a bouquet of vitamins and minerals that the body needs to perform various functions. They also contain fibres and antioxidants that help the body get rid of toxins and help the system. Since the environmental toxin is a significant part of our regular intake, everybody needs to have fruits and vegetables.
  4. Eating less junk and fatty food items -
    Junk and fatty food items add to body fat and toxic waste. While fat weighs heavy on metabolic activities and lessens different ailments, junk food may load the body with toxins and reduce fat deposits too.
  5. Worrying less -
    Never-ending worry tells of health. It may affect appetite, sleep, lifestyle, relationships, etc. All of these can affect the health and emotions in a variety of ways.
  6. Getting enough sleep -
    One needs to have enough sleep to stay healthy. But how much sleep is enough? A healthy adult needs about 8 hours of sleep every day to stay healthy.

All of the above is pretty easy to do and can have a significant positive effect on health as well as life.

While most of us have been actively seeking a good physique, it’s imperatively easy for us to fall in for fast-paced unnatural additives and supplements to help our urge for bodybuilding. Though it seems easy and less time consuming, a short-cut to body-building through steroids, synthetic hormones and unnatural diet supplements can cause your health to deteriorate and have long term implications which can be life-threatening. So, how can you help your body?

The Need For A Natural Supplement

Your body needs a natural boost and not toxic, fast-paced steroids to gain an additional muscle for a healthy physique. And a healthy physique always seeks for natural supplements in addition to a planned gym work-outs. Though it’s easy and far more tempting to use a short-cut for a nice and attractive physique, we tell you how frightening it can be for your overall health. Don’t even get us started on the side effects!

Fit India Movement - A Way To Contribute Towards Fit Tomorrow!

Fit India Movement - A Way To Contribute Towards Fit Tomorrow!

PM Narendra Modi has launched the Fit India Movement at 10 am in the Indira Gandhi Complex, New Delhi. The aim of this campaign is to encourage people of all age groups to make sports and physical activity a constant in their lives. It is expected that the PM will address a large gathering of people to administer a pledge of fitness. 

What the PM is doing, is actually the need of the hour. Our current lifestyles, where we lead sedentary lifestyles largely and our inclination for eating almost anything unhealthy has had a devastating impact on our lives. 

But all is not lost, we can still improve our bodies and regain our health by making small changes to our lifestyles. Let’s look at some of the changes we can implement with minimum hassle – 

  1. Start taking the stairs.
    This adage has been around for years now. Climbing the stairs may appear very simple, but the effect it has on your body, particularly your heart, can parallel the effects of exercises such as running. It can also boost your lung capacity.
  2. Cut down on sugar.
    Refined white sugar or processed sugar is not your friend. Not even in small amounts. Sugar consumption has been linked to diabetes, obesity, and heart problems. In fact, sugar can also create problems for the digestive system.
  3. Don’t sit for long periods.
    A majority of us have 10-7 desk jobs, where we sit in front of the computer for hours on end. And this does not exactly do great things for your body. Your spine and bones, in particular, are the most affected. From constantly sitting, your posture tends to deteriorate with time, this can put pressure on the spine and weaken key muscles like the hip muscles. Later in life, this may make you prone to arthritis.
    So in every one or two hours, get up from your chair and walk around for a few minutes.
  4. Stay active.
    Last but not least, stay active whenever possible. For example – if it’s a Sunday then don’t stay at home overusing gadgets. Do something that requires you to keep moving. You can visit parks and lakes for walks, or even go for a run.

To wrap it up, fitness is not something you should take lightly. Your health is your biggest asset, so pay attention to it and care for it. 

How Body Fat Affects Men's & Women's Health Differently?

How Body Fat Affects Men's & Women's Health Differently?


Body fat or adipose tissue is a constituent of the human body. Its primary function is to provide energy to the body. Body fat builds up differently in men and women. Recent studies explore the health consequences ensuing from these differences.

Usually, men have an ‘apple-shaped’ body. This is because men accumulate visceral fat – fat that is stored in the abdominal cavity – around the belly. Women, on the other hand, depict a ‘pear-shaped’ body because they have more fat deposits around the hips. Visceral fat is extremely dangerous because it affects the internal organs of your body, including the liver, intestines, and pancreas.

Body Fat Percentage in Men and Women

To evaluate your health, it is essential that you know your body fat percentage (BFP). A healthy body fat percentage depends on a number of variables such as age, body type, gender etc. For example, BFP range tends to be higher in women than in men because women require more body fat. The average BFP of females falls in between 25% and 31%.

What is a good body fat percentage?

Ideally, for men between ages 20-40, healthy BFP ranges from 8%-19%; between ages 41-60, normal BFP ranges from 11%-22%; between ages 61-79, the normal should be between 13%-25%. For women aged between 20-40 years, healthy BFP ranges from 21%-33%; between ages 41-60, normal BFP ranges from 23%-25%; between ages 61-79, the normal should be between 24%-36%.

What body fat percentage is unhealthy?

Body fat percentage below or above the normal range (as stated above) is considered unhealthy. For instance, if the BFP of a woman aged between 20-40 years is more than 30%, then it is considered overweight. Similarly, if a 50-year-old man has BFP below 11%, he is deemed underweight. Nevertheless, there are several ways to maintain a good body fat percentage.

How to Lose Body Fat Percentage?

Many people come up with questions like – Is it hard to lose body fat percentage? Certainly not, unless you have a serious underlying condition (obesity or PCOD). You can reduce your BFP by following the pointers below-

• Follow a protein-rich diet – It will decrease your appetite, reduce calorie intake, and preserve muscle mass. Good protein sources include dairy products, meat, eggs, legumes, seafood etc. • Add vinegar to your diet – Induces a sense of feeling full, lowers body fat, and reduces calorie intake

• Eat more healthy fats – Helps you burn fat quickly. Coconut oil, olive oil, and avocados are good sources.

• Reduce carb intake – Cutting down on refined carbohydrates like white bread/rice, pasta, snacks, cereals etc. can help you shed that extra flab.

Besides following a healthy diet, you should also engage in physical activities to bring down your body fat percentage to its normal range. Exercise more often – begin strength training to get rid of belly fat and build muscle mass. You can also lose fat by consuming these natural fat burners:

• Caffeine – boosts metabolism and helps you burn more fat as fuel

Green tea extracts

• Protein powder/supplements – boosts metabolism and reduces appetite

• Soluble fibre

Having a healthy body fat percentage is the key to staying fit and steering away from a host of ailments. Therefore, maintaining a balanced diet along with moderate exercise and routine check-ups is extremely important.
