Cure for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Hyponidd is a herbal formulation marketed by Charak. It is indicated in PCOS for improving insulin sensitivity, thereby promoting ovulation and reduced levels of testosterone. It helps in controlling hirsutism, acne, alopecia and obesity.

Treatment Protocol Hyponidd works very well for women with insulin-resistance. 1-2 tablets twice a day, half an hour before meals decreases gastrointestinal absorption of glucose from the meals, regulates the insulin response of the pancreas and increases peripheral utilization of glucose. A treatment protocol with Hyponidd lasting for 3-4 months restores normal ovulation in a large percentage of women.

As with any herbal medicine, every effort must be made to keep the required dosage of Hyponidd to a minimum and to avoid burdening the body with excess medication. A physician's advice is suggested when determining the dosage and duration of the treatment. When treated properly, herbal medicines should restore normalcy in the body and should be discontinued thereafter. Usage without discretion can make the patient permanently dependent on the medication. For withdrawal from using Hyponidd, include home-remedies like Fenugreek, Tulsi, etc. in the treatment protocol and follow a healthy diet and detoxification procedures and exercise regularly.

Case-3 discusses a treatment protocol using Hyponidd.

Why Smoking & Exercise Don’t Mix | The Diet Channel

Posted: at 1:40 pm

By Michele Silence, MA

A recent study found that smoking hampers physical fitness (even in young, fit people) and smokers seem to have lower physical endurance than nonsmokers1. Even when smokers want to get fit, the task isnt always easy. Cigarettes push blood pressure up, increase the heart rate and make coughing and choking a real problem.

In essence, youre poisoning your body with the cigarettes yet expect the same stressed organs to work hard during exercise. This puts a double strain on your heart, blood vessels, pulse, and blood pressure, as well as diminishes the oxygen levels in the blood.

Both exercise and smoking affect the same organ systems, but in opposite ways. While smoking decreases lung capacity, exercise increases it. In addition, as smoking increases your risk of having a heart attack, exercise decreases it. And then theres the issue of phlegmsmoking produces phlegm (which congests the lungs), while exercise breaks it up and rebuilds the lungs.

For more information on the effect of smoking when working out see the following article from TheDietChannel: Cigarettes: Will a couple per week affect your workout?

If youre a smoker who is ready to start exercising but not quite ready to quit smoking, think about some of the following health benefits of quitting2:

So, the good news is that you can start reaping health benefits the moment you take that last puff. Think about you can gainbeing able to breath fully again; enjoying the taste and smells around you, having a vibrant skin tone; and having more fun with your exercise program. Once you feel the difference, youll wonder why you didnt stop sooner. Do it today, its a choice you wont regret.

For more information on quitting smoking and avoiding weight gain see the following article from TheDietChannel: Smoking Cessation and Weight Gain: How to Quit Smoking and Avoid Gaining Weight.

I am not certified in any kind of diet field or exercise field!!!!! Please take this as pure opinion and what works for me.

Sorry this is not a funny video. But I get asked this constantly and my fingers are tired from typing it.

Here is a link to my EPIC blender, I actually have an older version of this that I have had for 5 years and never had any problems with. Comes with 2 cups and blades so you can make smoothies for you and your fuck buddy at the same time, and also comes with the giant dispensing thing that is spectacular for making frozen margaritas haha. http://www.google.com/products/catalo...

And here is the link to my vegan cookbook, there are so many out there so maybe you can find one that works better for you (ie there are books for people that need to cook meals for families and others that eat meat when you don't, some are more fancy and have more ingredients, I just like this one because it's very practical, easy recipes, and tells you all of the nutrition information in the meals you are cooking)

Diet and Exercise Tips | American Academy of …

Excessive body weight contributes to snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, in addition to being a major influence on general health and well-being. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs in about 50-60 percent of those who are obese.

A recent report from the National Center for Health Statistics concludes that 35 percent of adults exercise regularly (more than 6 of 10 dont), and nearly four in 10 arent physically active. Lack of exercise can increase the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The CDC estimates that about 112,000 deaths are associated with obesity each year in the United States. However, this estimate is likely to change in the future as more data become available.

Proper diet and exercise are the mainstays for a healthy lifestyle, although many Americans turn to costly fad diets and exercise programs that fail to provide weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. The basic tenets to gradual weight loss and good health include developing healthy eating habits and increasing daily physical activity.

Self-Help Guidelines for Healthy Activity:

Start out slowly and build up activity gradually over a period of months. This will help avoid soreness and injury.

Try to accumulate 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity cardiovascular activity each day. You can do all 30 minutes together or through short bouts of intermittent activity (e.g., 10 minutes at a time).

Add strength-developing exercises at least twice per week.

Incorporate physical activity into your day (walk to the office or store, take the stairs instead of the elevator, walk or jog at lunch time, etc.)

Make leisure time active garden, walk, ride a bike with family and friends, participate in an exercise class, join in a sports activity.

Select activities you enjoy, find satisfying, and that give you a feeling of accomplishment. Success leads to increased motivation to be physically active.

Be sure your activities are compatible with your age and physical condition.

Make it convenient to be active. Choose activities that are readily accessible (right outside your door) like gardening, walking, or jogging.

Try active commuting. Cycle, walk, or in-line skate to work or to the store.

Make your activity enjoyable listen to music, include family and friends, etc.

For those who are already moderately active, increase the duration and intensity for additional benefits.

Weight Loss Tips:

Take in fewer calories than you expend. Few people understand this basic, simple concept.

Eat nutrient dense foods such as whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables.

Eat slowly, and wait 10-15 minutes before taking second helpings.

Dont eliminate everything you like from your diet. Eat those things in small amounts (pizza, candy, cookies, etc.).

Prepare healthy snacks that are easily available (cut carrots, apples, etc.).

Avoid buffets.

Drink plenty of water, especially immediately before meals.

The Healthy Weight Approach to Dieting:

Enjoy a variety of foods that will provide essential nutrients.

Three-quarters of your lunch and dinner should be vegetables, fruits, cereals, breads, and other grain products. Snack on fruits and vegetables. Eat lots of dark green and orange vegetables. Choose whole-grain and enriched products more often.

Choose lower-fat dairy products, leaner meats and alternatives, and foods prepared with little or no fat. Shop for low fat (2% or less) or fat-free products such as milk, yogurt, and cottage cheese. Eat smaller portions of leaner meats, poultry, and fish; remove visible fat from meat and the skin from poultry. Limit the use of extra fat like butter, margarine, and oil. Choose more peas, beans, and lentils

Limit salt, caffeine, and alcohol. Minimize the consumption of salt. Cut down on added sugar such as jams, etc. Limit beverages with a high caffeine content (tea, sodas, chocolate drinks) and caffeinated coffee to two cups per day. Minimize alcohol to one to two drinks per day.

Limit consumption of snack foods such as cookies, donuts, pies, cakes, potato chips, etc. They are high in salt, sugar, fat, and calories, and low in nutritional value. Eat in moderation. If you are not hungry, dont eat.

Diet & Exercise Myths That Make It Hard to Lose Weight

Posted: at 3:47 pm


without comments

Comstock Images/Stockbyte/Getty Images

Every year, millions of Americans resolve to lose weight, whether on New Years Day, their birthdays, or just some morning when their mirror or the bathroom scale seems particularly unkind. And every year, many get frustrated and give up before they reach their goals. Contributing to this problem is a host of bad information about diet and exercise that circulates through gyms, workplaces, and over the Internet.

To help more people achieve and maintain a healthy weight, Julie Bender, a dietitian with Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, and Phil Tyne, director of the Baylor Tom Landry Health and Wellness Center agreed to weigh in on many of the most common diet and exercise myths.

Diet and Exercise Myth #1: Crunches will get rid of your belly fat.

False. You cant pick and choose areas where youd like to burn fat, Tyne says. In order to burn fat, you should create a workout that includes both cardiovascular and strength training elements. This will decrease your overall body fat content.

Diet and Exercise Myth #2. Stretching before exercise is crucial.

False. Some studies have suggested that stretching actually makes muscles more susceptible to injury. They claim that by stretching, muscle fibers are lengthened and destabilized, making them less prepared for the strain of exercise. You might want to warm-up and stretch before a run, but if you are lifting weights wait until after the workout to stretch your muscles, Tyne suggests.

Diet and Exercise Myth #3. You should never eat before a workout.

False. "Fuel" from food and fluids is required to provide the energy for your muscles to work efficiently, even if you are doing an early morning workout. Consider eating a small meal or snack one to three hours prior to exercise, Bender says. Load up your tank with premium fuel and choose some fruit, yogurt, or whole wheat toast.

Diet and Exercise Myth #4. Lifting weights will make women bulky.

False. Most womens bodies do not produce nearly enough testosterone to become bulky like those body builders on TV, Tyne says. If you do find yourself getting bigger than you would like, simply use less weight and more repetitions.

Diet and Exercise Myth #5. Fat is bad for you, no matter what kind.

False. Contrary to popular belief, there are plenty of good fats out there that are essential for good health and aid in disease prevention. They are the ones that occur naturally in foods like avocados, nuts, and fish, as opposed to those that are manufactured, Bender says. "Including small amounts of these foods at meal times can help you to feel full longer and therefore eat less.

Diet and Exercise Myth #6. Restricting calories is the best way to lose weight.

False. Both cutting back on calories and moving more will help you lose weight and maintain the lean muscle mass needed to boost metabolism. People often believe the diet and exercise myth that they must take drastic measures to lose weight, such as eating less than 1200 calories per day, but such diets usually do not provide adequate fuel for the body and may slow metabolism. Drastic measures rarely equal lasting results, so start small and eliminate 100-300 calories consistently from your daily diet, and you will reap the reward, Bender says.

Diet and Exercise Myth #7. As long as you eat healthy foods, you can eat as much as you want.

False. A calorie is a calorie. Although oatmeal is healthy, if you eat four cups of oatmeal, the calories add up. Healthy or otherwise, you still must be aware of portion sizes, Bender says. "You must limit your caloric intake in order to lose weight, however, understanding how to balance calorie intake throughout your day can help you avoid feelings of deprivation, hunger and despair.

Diet and Exercise Myth #8. Exercise turns fat into muscle.

False. Fat and muscle tissue are composed of two entirely different types of cells. While you can lose one and replace it with another, the two never convert into different forms, Tyne says. So fat will never turn into muscle.

Diet and Exercise Myth #9. Eating late at night will make you gain weight.

False. There are no magic hours, Bender says. We associate late-night eating with weight gain because we usually consume more calories at night. We do this because we usually deprive our bodies of adequate calories the first half of the day. Start the day out with breakfast and eat every 3-4 hours. Keep lunch the same size as dinner, and you will be less likely to over-indulge at night, yet you can enjoy a small late-night snack without the fear of it sticking to your middle.

Diet and Exercise Myth #10. You have to sweat to have a good workout.

False. Sweating is not necessarily an indicator of exertionsweating is your bodys way of cooling itself, Tyne says. It is possible to burn a significant number of calories without breaking a sweat: try taking a walk, or doing some light weight training, or working out in a swimming pool.

2-Week Diet & Exercise Plan | Applied Nutrition | Health Tips

Posted: at 3:47 pm


without comments

Item has been placed in basket.

TAKE THE 2-WEEK CHALLENGE! Congratulations! You are about to embark on a 2-week diet and exercise program that will kick-start a healthy lifestyle. This doctor-developed system is specially designed to help you lose weight, so you look and feel great. With a little hard work, determination and dedication, we are confident that the results will be worth the effort. Are you up to the challenge?

THE DIET PLAN WHAT SHOULD I EAT? Nutrient-dense, low calorie foods are the secret to losing weight and keeping it off. Your goal for the next 2 weeks is to choose foods that have the highest nutritional value. This means choosing foods that are rich in nutrients and low in calories. Try to aim for a balanced diet that includes whole grains, healthy fats and lean proteins at every meal.

Whole foods are the best form of nutrition. The term "whole foods refers literally to food in its whole form, with minimal processing to keep it as close to its original form as possible. For example, visualize a whole apple and compare this to a glass of apple juice. The juice on its own does not contain the skin, seeds or fleshy center. However, the whole apple offers all the goodness of the entire fruit and consequently offers greater health properties. This example applies to most all foods, so choosing "whole foods over processed foods means you get the richest supply of nutrients possible.

Color is important! Antioxidants called "polyphenols are responsible for the brightly colored pigments (vibrant reds, greens, blues and purples) of many fruits and vegetables. By keeping your food choices colorful, not only do you get a gorgeous looking meal, but youll also benefit from the positive health impact these colorful foods provide.

WHEN SHOULD I EAT? Always eat breakfast! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After fasting for 8 hours through the night, the body relies on sustenance in the morning for physical and mental energy and focus. Ideally you should eat breakfast within an hour of waking to stimulate metabolism. If you are not accustomed to eating food this early in the day, try (at least for the next 2-weeks) to eat a very light but nutritious breakfast to help you get going in the morning.

Lunch should be the biggest meal of the day. This is when your digestive enzymes are maximized and your body is primed to break down and absorb food nutrients. Having your largest meal in the middle of the day provides your body with the calories that it needs to stay active.

Dinner should always be light and early. Try to finish your evening meal before 7pm or at least two hours before going to bed. It is important to give your digestive system a rest during the night-time and to allow your body to repair, regenerate and detoxify. In order for your metabolism to function at its most efficient, it relies on this nightly restorative process to keep your body operating at optimum levels.

Snacking is allowed during the 2-week bootcamp. Eating a small snack in between lunch and dinner can help to maintain balanced blood sugar levels and to restrict overeating.

THE MEAL PLAN: The following meal plan provides 1250 calories per day. This diet is scientifically designed for healthy weight loss over the course of 2-weeks. Below is an overview of the basic dietary guidelines, outlining the daily amount of food that is allowed from each food group. You can mix and match food items throughout the day (being careful not to exceed your caloric goal) or you can simply follow one of three pre-designed menus below.

Dietary Guidelines Fruit: 1 cup (1 cup is equivalent to: 1 cup of fresh/frozen/canned fruits, 1 cup fruit juices, cup dried fruits)(Healthy options include: apples, pears, mangoes, grapes, cherries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, pomegranates)

Vegetables: 1.5 cups ( cup is equivalent to: cup of raw/cooked/frozen/canned veggies, cup vegetable juice, 1 cup of leafy greens)(Vary your choices to include: dark green veggies, orange veggies, starchy veggies, dry beans and peas)

Grains: 4 ounces (1 ounce is equivalent to: 1 cup of cereal flakes, 1 slice bread, 1 small muffin, cup cooked rice, 1 ounce dry pasta)(Choose whole grains whenever possible)

Meats and Beans: 3 ounces (1 ounce is equivalent to: 1 ounce lean meat/poultry/fish, 1 egg, cup cooked beans, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, ounce nuts/seeds (almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds))

Milk: 2 cups (1 cup is equivalent to: 1 cup milk/yogurt/soy milk, 1 ounces of cheese)(Choose low-fat or non-fat options whenever possible)

Oils: 4 teaspoons (1 teaspoon is equivalent to: 1 teaspoon butter, 1 teaspoon vegetable oil (olive oil is preferred), 1 teaspoon low- fat mayo, 2 teaspoons light salad dressing)

Menu #1 Breakfast (8am 9am) cup oatmeal 1 cup yogurt black coffee or herbal tea

Lunch (11am 1pm) 1 slice whole wheat bread (cut in half) 2 ounces tuna (in water only) Tomato, cucumber, lettuce (equivalent to cup total) 1 teaspoon mayo + 1 teaspoon olive oil

Snack (3pm 4pm) 1 cup of fresh fruit or 1 piece of fruit (apple, pear, plum, peach, etc)

Dinner (5pm 7pm) 1 corn tortilla cup black beans cup salsa 1 ounces cheese cup shredded lettuce cup cooked rice

Menu #2 Breakfast (8am 9am) Smoothie (blend together 1 cup berries + 1 cup soymilk and ice cubes) 1 slice of toast 1 teaspoon of butter

Lunch (11am 1pm) 1 cup cooked grain (such as white rice, brown rice, wild rice, quinoa, millet, etc) cup vegetables (such as steamed broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, etc) 2 ounces of lean meat (roughly the size of deck of playing cards)

Snack (3pm 4pm) 1 egg or ounce of nuts/seeds

Dinner (5pm 7pm) 1 cups of leafy greens (salad mix or steamed kale) 2 teaspoons light dressing 1 ounces of cheese

Menu #3 Breakfast (8am 9am) 1 cup high fiber cereal cup milk/soy milk 1 banana

Lunch (11am 1pm) 1 cup pasta cup vegetables or cup pasta sauce 2 teaspoons of olive oil 2 ounces of lean meat

Snack (3pm 4pm) 1 cup raw carrot sticks/celery/green peppers

Dinner (5pm 7pm) 6 crackers 1 cup low-fat cottage-cheese ounce mixed nuts

TEN HELPFUL HINTS FOR DIETING SUCCESS:

Plan out your weekly meals in advance.

Drink 8 or more glasses of water per day. And drink at least one glass of water before every meal to help decrease appetite.

Avoid temptations! Clear out your fridge and pantry of all food items that can derail your diet plan.

Eat slowly; chew each bite thoroughly and put your fork down between bites. It takes approximately 20 minutes for your brain to recognize that you're full.

Cook for yourself at home and resist the urge of eating out.

Try new foods whenever possible; it allows opportunity to bring variety to an otherwise restricted diet.

Add spices or chiles to your food for a flavor boost that can help you feel satisfied.

Brush your teeth after each meal so you wont be tempted to snack.

Sleep 8 hours per night. Research shows that lack of sleep can stimulate appetite and lead to overeating.

Keep your eye on the ultimate goal!

THE BOOTCAMP EXERCISE PLAN

GET MOVING! Exercise is an important part of any weight loss program. Exercise not only helps to burn calories, but can also help to boost energy, improve mood and enhance quality of life. For the next 2-weeks, make a commitment to invest time for daily physical activity. We recommend moderate (not too strenuous) exercise such as walking and/or running. Because you will be on a low calorie diet, it is important not to overdo it! And if you are new to exercising, start slowly! Try taking a brisk walk for 15-25 minutes per day, and gradually build up to 30-40 minutes (or more) per day! In the long-term, exploring a variety of physical activities can help you stay active. Here are some options to keep you moving: biking, swimming, hiking (hills or stair climbing), dancing, weight lifting, gardening, team sports, etc.

Resources: http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/public/heart/obesity/aim_hwt.pdf http://www.choosemyplate.gov/ This diet and exercise program is not intended to be medical advice. Always consult with your physician or other qualified health care provider before beginning any diet or exercise program and ask whether you are healthy enough to engage in this diet and exercise program. Never disregard, avoid or delay in obtaining medical advice from you doctor or other qualified health care provider concerning your health. If you have or suspect that you have a medical problem or condition, please contact a qualified health care professional immediately.

Diet (nutrition) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Posted: at 5:03 am


without comments

In nutrition, diet is the sum of food consumed by a person or other organism.[1]

Dietary habits are the habitual decisions an individual or culture makes when choosing what foods to eat. The word diet often implies the use of specific intake of nutrition for health or weight-management reasons (with the two often being related). Although humans are omnivores, each culture and each person holds some food preferences or some food taboos. This may be due to personal tastes or ethical reasons. Individual dietary choices may be more or less healthy.

Complete nutrition requires ingestion and absorption of vitamins, minerals, and food energy in the form of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Dietary habits and choices play a significant role in the quality of life, health and longevity. It can define cultures and play a role in religion.

Some cultures and religions have restrictions concerning what foods are acceptable in their diet. For example, only Kosher foods are permitted by Judaism, and Halal foods by Islam. Although Buddhists are generally vegetarians, the practice varies and meat-eating may be permitted depending on the sects.[2] In Hinduism, vegetarianism is the ideal. Jains are strictly vegetarian and consumption of roots is not permitted.

Many people choose to forgo food from animal sources to varying degrees (e.g. flexitarianism, vegetarianism, veganism, fruitarianism) for health reasons, issues surrounding morality, or to reduce their personal impact on the environment, although some of the public assumptions about which diets have lower impacts are known to be incorrect.[3]Raw foodism is another contemporary trend. These diets may require tuning or supplementation such as vitamins to meet ordinary nutritional needs.

A particular diet may be chosen to seek weight loss or weight gain. Changing a subject's dietary intake, or "going on a diet", can change the energy balance and increase or decrease the amount of fat stored by the body. Some foods are specifically recommended, or even altered, for conformity to the requirements of a particular diet. These diets are often recommended in conjunction with exercise. Specific weight loss programs can be harmful to health, while others may be beneficial (and can thus be coined as healthy diets). The terms "healthy diet" and "diet for weight management" are often related, as the two promote healthy weight management. Having a healthy diet is a way to prevent health problems, and will provide your body with the right balance of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.[4]

An eating disorder is a mental disorder that interferes with normal food consumption. It is defined by abnormal eating habits that may involve either insufficient or excessive diet.

A healthy diet may improve or maintain optimal health. In developed countries, affluence enables unconstrained caloric intake and possibly inappropriate food choices.[5]

It is recommended by many authorities that people maintain a normal weight by (limiting consumption of energy-dense foods and sugary drinks), eat plant-based food, limit red and processed meat, and limit alcohol.[6]
