    To start with a very Happy and healthy new year to all. Intentionally or not now a days every one you meet speaks about health and diet. Just a few years back, diet was something which was followed, only when somebody was ill. But today it is a common thing for most people to be on some diet or the other. The reason could be traced back to the trend of having a perfect body figure. So, came the era of Gym, where going to the gym and getting a specialized diet plan was something special. Now, with the entry of search engines like Google and phones loaded with high tech app you can get any diet plan you want at your fingertips. But is this method really trustworthy?? Factually No. There could be people who havebenefited by the diet plans, but you never know what exactly they did. Basically, any diet plan is  a trial and error process to  exactly suit the needs of an individual but if you go to a proper dietician, at least the number of errors is sure to reduce and there is someone who knows the s

  • From the heart of a Dietician
    Dietician | 24-Oct-2017
    And as Diwali comes to an end … reminding people of their health Diwali – a week full of Feasting .This is the time everybody eats heart fully and then  with the end of Diwali comes the realisation of  unhealthy overeating  for which we convince ourselves with the answer that it was not our Fault , we ate because others forced .. Really was it not our fault?? Now the heart starts accepting that yes it was our mistake and here comes the phase of Guilty. This is the worst , it either leads to over eating or fasting , both ways troubling our body . So Now what we have already over loaded our Body?? Simple, let’s give it some rest .Here rest does not mean sleeping but helping our body use the excess fuel  how is that?? For this Lets get back to our basic , start exercising . The easiest 15 minutes of Brisk walk in your own house will also do ,  but make it a point that it is a BRISK WALK  or  even our traditional Surya Namaskar (10). Along with this eve

  • SUGAR SIMPLIFIED
    MimiTheHealthBlogger | 14-Jun-2017
    Sweet food has always been looked at as more special, especially during dire times when there is a scarcity of food. Sugar gives us energy; energy to go on… energy to survive. But in our sugar-coated world, our preference for sweet foods has led to excessive consumption.   But is it really that bad, and is all sugar bad?   Fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts and whole grains contain simple sugars. Simple sugars found in whole food are accompanied by vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre. Fibre makes a big difference because it slows down the absorption of sugar, which in turn reduces fluctuations in blood sugar.    Naturally occurring sugar in foods is good sugar. When any type of sugar is added to foods during processing, cooking or at the table, you consume calories without any nutrients or fibre. This type of sugar is called added sugar and is ‘bad sugar’. Bad sugars increase your chances of putting on weight and of developing Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. &nbs

  • The Maintenance Manual
    Gouri Dange | 24-May-2017
    ...go ahead and spring clean that relationship!                                                                                                - Gouri Dange Just about everyone spring cleans their homes, at least once a year. We do it, not as a chore, but as a chance to run our eye and our duster over all our possessions - cleaning, mending, discarding, replacing. It’s the same with our cars – servicing, regular fuel filling, maintaining tyre pressure, cleaning inside and out, listening out for any odd noises. However, it is the most important relationships in our lives - the ones that will outlive our homes and cars and careers and even our bodies – that we neglect thoroughly. We treat them as if they’re completely weather-proof, Teflon-coated, m

  • Life Lessons
    BoogieSpirit | 01-Jan-2017
    Oh you are so brave!!!! Yay that's me.. feels like a superhero this "BRAVE" Yes am brave, I can manage my injuries better or so I think 😇As a child if I had fever my dad would always sit besides me and tell me to be strong, to defeat this fever and with his soothing words I would always. (Moms soup did the tricks too, lest she feels left out 😜) Back to daddy dearest 😍 - he gave me 2 important life lessons which I hope to pass on to my kids 1. each one of us is suffering something or the other only the severity varies, so if crying would help, we would see a lot of people crying for hours sitting on the road or hospitals or their homes & after a few sessions their injury is healed. Super! Sounds easier & less painful than surgery right? But no.2. If I as a father could take your pain for mine my dear child I would happily take it. Unfortunately no one can. So back to this brave me, clutching onto dads life lessons, wish to confess that I cry sometimes in the bathroom where my kids can't see, I cry

      Quite often the brain and the heart pull everything between and around them in two different directions. Sometimes the heart wins but most of the times it’s the brain that conquers everything. The word ‘free’ somehow generates more excitement when its associated with goods rather than its original meaning of ‘doing as one wishes’.  When god created this world, I doubt he sent an instruction manual on what is right and what isn’t! What is good and what isn’t! What should be done and what shouldn’t! But still, since our birth we entangle our brain with infinite rights wrongs, good bad, should shouldn’t and must mustn’t. Somehow we occupy most of the space in there with these things and leave very little of it to connect with the heart that speaks a different language altogether. I wonder sometimes, is it just me who dreams of free spirit? Do normal capable people also feel like routine is monotonous? Well, I am a big fan of routine mys

    Of late most conversations either begin or end in "weighty" issues! Everyone eager to share their own take on healthy eating or the newest celeb diet plans. My advice to all would be; eat healthy, eat in the right quantities and at the right time but most importantly EAT. The most important thing that people seem to have forgotten over the years is that the food we eat is our fuel for the day. It's the carbohydrates such as roti, rice, bread or biscuits we eat that give us about 70% of the energy we need everyday. Eating a balanced meal with the right amount of carbs, protein, vitamins, minerals and fat. Over time people have cut down their carbohydrate intake drastically and often you hear people talk about "NO CARBS" diet. This approach would lead to muscle loss and unhealthy weight loss that will surely not be sustainable.
