  • 8 Ways to respect your intestine by eating Right Food- Article by Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi)

    In Health Tips On 17 January 2017

                    8 Ways to respect your intestine by eating Right Food 1. Every organ is extremely essential for the proper functioning of our body. The digestive system is one of the biggest networks in our body that plays a vital role in the absorption of nutrients and minerals. We have the large and small intestines which enable the absorption of nutrients and disposal of waste from our system according to Best Dietician and Nutritionist in Mumbai Geetanjali Ahuja Mengi. 2. The small intestine is present below the stomach and right above the large intestine and 90 percent of the digestion and absorption takes place here. 3. After the mechanical digestion of the food, chemical digestion of it takes place in the small intestine where the proteins, lipids and carbohydrates are absorbed by it. 4. The large intestine on the other hand absorbs the remaining water from the already digested food and throws the useless waste material out of the body. 5. As the intestines play a very important role in the digestive process, it is our duty to take care of them in the best way possible according to Dietician for Gastro Intestinal Diseases in Mumbai Bandra Khar South mumbai Nutritionist for Intestinal Diseases. Certain food items help us maintain a good digestive system and gut health. 6. Probiotic foods are the most recommended of them all. Yoghurt, especially unsweetened yoghurt that has live active cultures is recommended for a healthy intestine. 7. Food rich in fibre content also helps us have an excellent digestive system and for this we should start eating whole unprocessed food items. We should also start cultivating good bacteria that will help in fighting all intestine related disorders. 8. Fat is a nutrient that most of tend to avoid to reduce weight. But this is one of the major mistakes we do when we diet. Good fat is an essential part of our human body and we should never eliminate any nutrient from our body totally. Hence a balanced diet and good exercise will help us in having a perfect digestive system and intestinal health.

    In Best dietician Mumbai On 25 October 2017

    Side Effects of Late Night Dinner- By Dietitian in Dadar Matunga Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi) Obesity today is a universal problem around the globe and you would be surprised that a lot of it is caused by unhealthy habits. Let us look at some reasons to avoid late dinners: Weight Gain When you eat during the day you are generally active and this digests all the food properly but when you eat a late dinner it has more chances to increase your weight as weight increases when your metabolism is thrown out of gear during your sleeping hours , which tends to increase your weight. As during your sleep time your metabolism slows down. Fluctuation in sleep cycles   A very important aspect of eating a late dinner is it affects your sleep cycle which can have a disastrous impact on your waking state. You will find you will also find it harder to get to sleep and the late dinner just throws your entire body mechanism out of rhythm. Also, if youre late dinner includes a lot of cookies and cakes as a dessert, it will only increase your weight it is better rather than a late dinner to drink a glass of milk which will also assist you to sleep. Increased Excretion Needs  If you have a late dinner your food will have to digest while you are asleep and your metabolism is slow, so you will need to go and ease yourself to the restroom at regular intervals at night which also affects your sleep pattern. If you really are hungry at night you should consider eating foods high in fiber as these will take a long time to digest and wont affect your sleep at night.  It is finally important to follow a regular routine as the body works like a clock and needs its input at regular intervals if you indulge in late night dinners it throws the entire clock haywire and will have a disastrous effect on your overall well being.  

  • Red Meat Vs White Meat - Best Dietitian in Dadar and Mahim Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi)

    In Best dietician Mumbai On 03 November 2017

    There are lobbies which go to the extent of global warming to pursue a vegetarian diet but studies confirm, man is omnivorous by nature and meat is a great source of proteins and vitamins. The debate is  what meat is really good for you Red Meat or White Meat. The primary difference between the two is its fat content. Fat Content- White meat is leaner meat with proteins and lesser fat content although red meat has more fat and also more iron, zinc and minerals. Although red meat contains more proteins and vitamins it is related to higher incidences of certain cancers. B Vitamins – The iron in Red Meat is called Heme iron. It is more easily digestible by man then iron got from a vegetarian diet. Because of the absorbable iron in a plant source vegetarians have found to be with Vitamin B deficiency. White meat considered healthier – White meat is considered healthier than red meat in a diet and it all boils down to the constituents of the meat red meat is made of muscle fiber known as ‘ Slow Twitch “ which means it  is used more for steady exercises like walking on the other hand white meat is made of muscle fiber known as ‘Fast Twitch ‘ , which gives us sharp bursts of energy . Red meat carries more oxygen has a higher level of myoglobin on the other hand white meat has lesser oxygen and lower levels of myoglobin. Health Risks- Red meat has higher levels of myoglobin which is related to a higher risk of certain kinds of cancer.  White meat has lower levels of myoglobin so you could say better but it is good to have a balanced diet as both red meat and white meat have benefits and disadvantages.

  • How to Reduce Acidity.

    In Best dietician Mumbai On 10 January 2018

    Gastric acid is formed in the stomach by hydrochloric acid ( HCI ) , Potassium Chloride ( KCI ) and Sodium Chloride ( NAC ) which causes acidity. Here are some tips to reduce Acidity : Choose an alkaline diet – If you remember from your chemistry class in school, the pH Scale provides a measure between 0 most acidic and +14 most alkaline.Our body’s optimum is pH 7. 36 which is tilted towards being alkaline, an alkaline diet is one which helps you maintain a perfect Ph balance and does not create unnecessary acids. It is a fact that we usually like a lot of acidic food but this only harms our optimum body function. Eat Greens- Eat a lot of green vegetables, fruits, roots, nuts. These are alkaline and keep you away from acidic gases. Make vegetables the focus of your meals, not meats. Reduce the intake of Acidic food- Reduce your intake of acidic food like eggs, refined sugar, meat, white flour, and dairy.Limit Alcohol Consumption- Alcohol has high sugar content and is highly acidic. In large quantities, it can be fatal. It is perfectly ‘ok’ if you like a glass of beer or wine every now and then. Just be conscious of how much you drink. Drink Alkaline Water – Drink a lot of alkaline water at least 8 to 10 glasses a day. Average tap water has an alkaline content of about 6.5 to 7 Ph but alkaline water has about 9 Ph . This will keep your body most hydrated and make sure you do not generate unnecessary gas or acid. Exercise – Break into a sweat regularly. This will also help losing weight while keeping acidity in check.Seek Balance – Stress is a major cause for acid as well, so look at mind altering exercises like Meditation , Yoga , deep breathing and long walks. #pcos #dietician #matunga #dadar #prabhadevi #worli Geetanjali Ahuja Mengi Speaks about #acidity

  • How To Lose Weight Post Pregnancy.

    In Best dietician Mumbai On 29 January 2018

    One should look at getting back to original weight around 6 months to a year post pregnancy. It is important to have a regular diet and an exercise routine to get back to same vigor. Here are a few tips on how to lose weight post pregnancy : Relax-  Take your time, your body needs to recoup from the delivery. Don’t be hard on yourself, look at getting the six week check up post delivery and if you are breastfeeding, do not start any slimming routine till at least 2 months of breastfeeding. Breast Feeding-  Breast feeding automatically makes you lose weight as it burns calories. Do not try straight away to lose a lot of weight while breastfeeding as it will produce less milk. You should approximately lose 650 gms a week which won’t effect your breastfeeding routine. Eat Well- Unlike what may be perceived, it is good to maintain a regular diet post pregnancy and not skip any meals plus add small meals in between. Make sure you are eating non- fat or dairy free products. Eat a lot of food with fiber and proteins avoid juices and sodas with added sugars.Iit just adds to your calorie intake. Don’t Crash and Burn-  Do not go any crash diets as it will only result in burn outs and it will take longer for you to regain good health. Be Realistic-  You may have a new body to adjust too, but be realistic and don’t overburden yourself. Exercise-  A healthy routine of exercise will also shed those unnecessary calories and get you back to peak health faster.  Do not try anything out of the ordinary but try to reach your usual fitness routine. #postpregnancy #fitmom #foodislife #eatgood #healthylifestyle#pregnancyjourney Call 9869192070 Reg #Dietician Geetanjali Ahuja Mengi #matunga #dadar #prabhadevi #worli

  • 5 Reasons you are hungry after eating.

    In Best dietician Mumbai On 02 February 2018

    Many people feel hungry even after a good meal and never understand what the reason is for it. They may be many reasons why you still feel hungry after eating let us look at 5:- Skipping Breakfast- If you have skipped your breakfast or didn’t have a good enough meal, your blood sugar levels may be affected which could leave on craving for food. It is important to have a full breakfast with a lot of whole grain and protein. This should help to keep you feeling full all day. Soft Drinks- Drinking aerated juices and other soft drinks are high in sugar which will reduce blood flow in the part of the brain that regulates appetite. Your body can be tricked into thinking it needs more food by fructose, although you may have already eaten.  This happens because it slows down the body’s ability to know we are full.   Dehydration- Sometimes you just may be hungry even after eating because you are dehydrated which expresses itself in hunger. If you still feel hungry after a good meal, try drinking a full glass of water and see how you feel. The symptoms are the same for dehydration and hunger. Didn’t eat Greens- You could also feel hungry after a meal if you didn’t eat your green vegetables. These are vegetables like spinach, collard greens, kale which are rich in folate which helps protect against weight loss. Vegetables are a rich source of Vitamin K which fights against craving for food. If you eat your greens well you are sure to feel full. Boredom- Another reason for you to feel hungry after a good meal could also be plain boredom. If you have had a full meal and still feel hungry could mean that your mind is distracted so boredom is also a cause for feeling hungry after a meal. #Hungry #Healthtalk #Healthylifestyle #foodislife #eatgood Call 9869192070 Reg #Dietician Geetanjali Ahuja Mengi #bandra #khar#santacruz #vileparle
