Harmful Effects of Self Dieting- Meet Dietician in Grant Road Mumbai Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi) 

Weight loss has become a challenging aspect of human life. As we have adopted the modern lifestyle the threat of gaining weight looms over our head even more than the previous generations. Finding ways to shed some weight is very common, but deciding on the diet part without knowing or understanding the basics of nutrition science is dangerous. Here are some of the harmful effects of self dieting

Starvation mode:

Most of the people think that if they eat less they will lose weight which is a myth. You have to eat enough to survive through the day. Once less calories are consumed the body starts getting into starvation mode and it keeps storing essential nutrients more than usual making you look bulky. Slowed metabolism will bring back all the lost weight as you start eating normally.

Muscle atrophy:

Starvation diets make you loose muscles and all the weight that you lose is only water weight. Losing muscles is the biggest loss of body. Because muscles give tone to the body. Once there is muscle atrophy, your body will look saggy. Even if you look leaner, without toning the body, you will look older. This is one of the major side effects of doing self dieting.

Loss of menstrual cycle:

If women go on starvation diet, it may result in the loss of menstrual cycle. hair Loss, osteoporosis and other major physical problems.

Lack of awareness:

It is so important to understand the difference between good and bad carbohydrates. Less carbohydrates lead to less energy and weakness. Only professional intervention for nutrition will result in appropriate weight loss.

Fibre Intake:

The intake of fibre is very essential for smooth bowel movement. Sometimes in self dieting you may deprive yourself of fibre, resulting in constipation.

Why Japanese live long? By Dietician in Bandra Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi)  The people in the land of rising sun live longer and we are going to reveal secret behind it. Japan has one of the lowest life expectancies post world war II. Here are some of the secrets which help Japanese people live longer. Eating vegetables & Fish:  As lame as it sounds but it is absolutely true. Eating vegetables is something which most of the people do not like. Japanese people eat more vegetables.  Japanese people have loads of rice, vegetables and fish. There is one more thing which is very famous in Japan, i.e. fermented soy and seaweed. This makes sure that there is no lack of vitamins, minerals and other phytochemicals.  Increase in western habits, breads, sweets and refined sugars are some of the reasons which has deteriorated the healthy aspect of Japanese nutrition. Different ways of cooking:  Steaming, grilling, broiling, stir frying, fermenting and slow cooking are some of the methods that Japanese use for cooking. One bowl of soup is the most essential aspect of their meals. They couple veg and fish intake with rice generally which increases fiber content of their meals. Drinking a lot of tea:  Tea is the most commonly drunk beverage in Japan and an important part of Japanese food culture. Various types of tea are widely available and consumed at any point of the day. Green tea is the most common type of tea, and when someone mentions "tea" without specifying the type, it is green tea to which is referred. Green tea is also the central element of the tea ceremony. There is a tea culture in Japan which is one of the factor in ageless population. Most varieties of Japanese tea contain more antioxidants than coffee. More antioxidants help keeping the skin fresh and ageless. Fresh food:  In Japanese cuisine ingredients used are very fresh. It is said that in Japanese market the food is dated by hours instead of days. Eating fresh and seasonal is a secret of being ageless all over the world. Smaller Plates: In Japan you are supposed to eat only 80% of the capacity of your stom-ach. Using small plates is the etiquette of Japanese culture. Appropriate use of chopsticks and only little garnishing is given more importance.  One of the most important aspect of living young is that Japanese stick to their culture. #Article Written by #Dietician Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi) #ClinicalNutritionist

All parents would want their children to have good memory. Adults also loose the capacity of remembering things when they are under stress. Here are some of the foods which would help boosting the memory. Cabbage: Cabbage head is not the insult as you may perceive. It is a good source of folic acid which helps boost memory. Eggs: Eggs are the primary source of protein and are said to increase the memory. A good omelet on any day for breakfast is a good deal to improve your memory. Broccoli:  A little sister of cauliflower broccoli is a good source of protein again. Broccoli can be eaten in boiled state as a side or stir fried way as salad. Add some veggies to stir fried broccoli with salad dressing, you get fantastic salad which not only boosts the taste of your palette but also boosts your memory. Strawberries: The favorite most of all, eating strawberries a day would surely improve your memories. Strawberries can be eaten in any way. Shake it up with little milk and chia seeds, you get a fantastic shake which has refreshing taste and goodness of strawberry. Red Wine: Many people swear by this quality of red wine which would help them boost memory. It is said that wine which is older is the better for improving memory powers. Consuming wine with food is the best way to have it. Salmon: Definitely not an option for vegans and vegetarians, salmon is considered to be the best source of protein and hence boosts memory power. Almonds: Indians swear by almonds for their capacity to boost memory. Soaked and eaten as first thing in the morning peeled almonds are the best source of protein too.
