As we are celebrating Holi…the festival of colors and joy, we must take care that we should not indulge in overeating and consuming high caloric snack. Also the colors produce harm effects to skin and hair, here are few tips to keep your skin rejuvenating.

  • Avoid overeating and consuming high caloric snacks.
  • While you enjoy every moment of celebration, we think avoiding calories can be impossible, it is not so.
  • Use low fat and low sugar ingredients
  • Make use of low fat ingredients like low fat milk, low sugar products, honey and jaggery and other dairy products to make sweets and snacks.
  • Use a limited quantity of oil for cooking
  • Limit the use of oil in your diet. Use healthy oils like olive oil, mustard oil, canola oil or rice bran oil for cooking. Avoid reused oil for frying as it will increase the free radicals which are harmful for skin and heart. It is also not advisable for asthmatics to have fried foods as it will cause shortening of breath.
  • Though fried food tastes good it is not good for health. We have a tendency to eat more of oily food during occasion but we should keep a watch on it.
  • Drink fluids : Take lots n lots of healthy fluids in your diet. You can have coconut water, vegetable juices, thandai, jaljeera, gulab jal and so on. These fluids will fill up your stomach and results in eating lesser fried foods.
  • Go for healthy snacking: Add more of fruits, salads with some special healthy dressings like flaxseed ,honey and olive oil, bean chat, bean tikki, paneer tikka.you can also munch on nuts as they will provide you satiety as well as nutrition.
  • Portion size : Try to eat in smaller plates as it will help you in choosing lesser quantities. Use of smaller bowls and glasses also helps you in consuming lesser quantities.​

Fruit Vs Juice
16 February 2015
WHICH ONE IS BETTER.....   FRUIT OR JUICE Everyday in the hospital I have a very usual scene of people bringing juice for the patients. Even though they are not allowed to give the outside food. But they always argue with me that they are giving the nutritious thing why we are stopping them. Also in my day to day routine I come across this notion that having juice is a healthy option most people tend to have. BUT REALLY?????? I always ask my clients about why they think having juice is a healthy option? I differ on this...why let me explain...  Juicing is a process which extracts water and nutrients from produce and discards the indigestible fiber. Some believe that without all the fiber, your digestive system doesn\'t have to work as hard to break down the food and absorb the nutrients. Juicing is being emphasised for weight loss, body detoxification, and the treatment and prevention of everything from the common cold to cancer. When it comes to detoxing, there is no substantiated scientific evidence to affirm that the body needs an outside source to accomplish this. Our body does an excellent job of this on its own; our liver, kidneys, lungs, and intestines filter the unwanted toxins from our body and expel them through urine, bowel movements, breath and sweat. If we have to see from a \"cleansing\" perspective, the most beneficial natural colon \"cleanse\" is actually dietary fiber. It is needed to produce regular bowel movements which remove waste and toxins from the body; in addition, fiber feeds the good bacteria in our gut that play an important role in keeping our immune system working properly. Unfortunately, it is stripped away during the process of juicing. Fiber offers other important health benefits as well. It provides satiety keeping us feeling full after eating, lowers cholesterol, and regulates blood sugar. All of these benefits are missing from juice. With regard to weight loss, juicing can be part of healthy eating plan if done sensibly. In order to have a nutritionally complete weight loss plan, you will need to include adequate protein and fat, along with the carbohydrates and micronutrients from juice, to keep your body functioning properly.  But replacing all or most solid food with juice is not a good idea. You probably will lose weight because you\'re cutting out all of the fat from your diet and drastically lowering your caloric intake. But you\'ll most likely put it right back on when you start eating whole foods again because the weight you lost was mostly water weight. And as with most very low calorie diets, when the body thinks it\'s starving, it lowers metabolism because it doesn\'t know when it\'s going to get more food. If you do this often and long enough, it could potentially lower your metabolism permanently. It is not an effective way to lose weight and keep it off. Instead, the most successful weight-loss strategies are sustainable, meaning you can incorporate them into your lifestyle long-term. In general, eating whole fruits and vegetables is better than juicing. The healthiest diets include whole grains, lean sources of protein, healthy fats, and, yes, whole fruits and vegetables. And if you\'re willing to replace your usual midmorning high caloric snack with a juice, it\'s hard to argue against that. Here\'s another (probably better) option…blend up a smoothie. Blending simply combines all the ingredients you place in your blender, leaving the pulp and fiber intact. When trying to lose or maintain a healthy weight, smoothies can be used as a meal replacement or a snack. Fruit and veggie smoothies can be a healthy addition to any eating plan as long as you maintain balance and portion control. HOPE IT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL FOR YOU ... NEXT TIME IT WOULD BE EASY FOR YOU TO CHOOSE. THINK HEALTHY BE HEALTHY...KEEP SMILING.  
Effects of cooking
07 September 2016
The acid cooking of meat can add calcium since the acid dissolves some of the calcium from bones. Acid foods such as tomatoes or spaghetti sauce when cooked for a long time in iron utensils will dissolve some of the iron from the utensils and be higher in this nutrient. Digestibility of several foods such as starches improves on cooking. During cooking starch swells and cell walls burst making it easy for the enzymes in the digestive juices to have access to starch and digest it.  Cooking eggs help in destroying the avidin which is known to bind biotin and make it unavailable. Heating or autoclaving the legumes help destroying the trypsin inhibitors and improve the quality.  Cooking in acid medium with tamarind or other acid foods has a protective effect against vitamins.  Cutting the vegetables into small pieces and exposing them to air before cooking may result in loss of vitamins particularly vitamin C.  Certain amounts of minerals and vitamins are lost during preliminary washing of rice before cooking. Washing may remove as much as 40% of thiamine and nicotinic acid. Boiling rice in excess water and discarding the water results in loss of some amount of minerals and vitamins. The practice of adding of baking soda to water when cooking vegetables to retain the green color can result in loss of the alkaline sensitive nutrients, vitamin C, thiamin and riboflavin. Juicing of the vegetables can cause the loss of vitamin A and C, calcium and phosphorous.  If milk is allowed to be heated for an hour for preparing some products, there is loss of riboflavin.  High heat in frying can cause fats to decompose and fat soluble vitamins to be destroyed. Smoking is a sign that this decomposition is taking place.  The use of alkaline material such as lye for peeling fruit for example, peaches and tomatoes can have detrimental effects on vitamin C and thiamin
