SO YOU MADE a New Year's resolution to lose weight like the rest of us, but research shows that most resolutions go down the drain within the first month or two after Jan 1. Staying on track is tough, but it’s not impossible. To optimize your chances of reaching your goal, you’ve got to actively set yourself up for success. This is where Dr Deepa Agarwal, Best Dietician and Nutritionist, comes in. She’s helped us identify the keys to making your resolution stick so you won't have to start again next year.
Resolve to think small and you can reach any diet goal -- one focused step at a time. Why not start with these simple tips?
New Year's Diet Resolution No. 1: Go Slow
Resolving to get more fiber in your diet this year? Maybe more fish or fresh fruit? Any diet change is easier if you take slow, small steps. For example:
1. Vow to add a piece of produce to your brown bag lunch daily.
2. Designate a day as fish day.
3. Package up a single serving of your favorite whole-grain cereal, then treat it as your midmorning snack.
New Year's Diet Resolution No 2: Water, Water, Everywhere
Water: It's cheap, fat-free, and gives your body a quenching boost. Find the idea of eight cups a day daunting? Think small:
1. Drink one glass first thing in the morning, before you brush your teeth.
2. Tempted by more soda? Another glass of wine? Drink a cup of water with a splash of your favorite beverage in it first.
3. Resolve to drink one more cup of water today than you had yesterday.
New Year's Diet Resolution No. 3: Go for the Gold ... and Red ... and Purple
Colorful produce is packed with disease-fighting plant compounds, so when you shop, reach for a rainbow.
1. Designate a color-a-day. Maybe Mondays are yellow, with grapefruit, golden apples, or corn starring in meals, while Tuesdays are purple with plum and eggplant.
2. Get the kids involved and go for a theme: Build a green pizza with emerald bell peppers and artichokes, or a red produce-infused chili.
3. Vary the rainbow -- pick up a new-to-you fruit or veggie the next time you shop.
New Year's Diet Resolution No 4: Tackle Mindless Munching
You're chatting with friends around the dinner table or watching a DVD -- and you just keep nibbling. Try these tips to reign in the munchies:
1. Pop a stick of gum or a sugar-free mint in your mouth.
2. Brush or floss your teeth.
3. Pay attention -- look at each piece of food you plan to eat.
4. Busy your hands with a glass of water, a cup of tea, or cleaning off the table.
New Year's Diet Resolution No 5: Stack the Odds in Your Favor
Don't forget to help yourself succeed, and to reach out for help when you need it.
1. Buddy up with a friend or family member with diet and weight lossresolutions. Then share your ideas, plans, and successes regularly.
2. Leave the temptations -- ice cream, chips, soda -- at the grocery store. Promise yourself you'll cater to cravings only outside the home, in one-serving portions.
3. Socialize with non-food events. Get your friends together in the park, for a hike, or at the movies.
Bonus New Year's Diet Resolution: Baby Your Body
Prevention: It's a lot less daunting than treating a chronic condition, so do the little things that keep your body thriving.
1. Get moving 30 minutes a day most days. Go for a walk, give the car a good scrub, take a hike. Whatever gets the blood pumping qualifies!
2. Get those tests you know you need. Cholesterol checks, prostate exams, pap smears -- stay ahead of the game by staying healthy.
3. Get all the snooze-time you need. Sleep helps body and soul recharge, stay healthy, and cope with stress.
Take enough steps and you'll reach any goal. Resolve to make a few small diet resolutions this year and then just watch how far you'll go!

Weight Loss Tips This Navratri.....

It's that time of the year again! Navratri is one of the most important Hindu festivals celebrated twice in a year. People from all over the world celebrate Navratri with enthusiasm. While some take part in the festivities for religious reasons, others look to give their body a much required detox and lose weight. If you plan to fast this Navratri ensure that it is done the healthy way. It can help you detoxify, cleanse your mind and will leave you feeling great!

Tips to follow to make fasting healthier -

1. Eat small meals and do not starve yourself. This will help maintain blood glucose levels and prevent you from feeling low.

2. Keep yourself hydrated. Drink lots of water and fluids like coconut water, lemon water, green tea and buttermilk.

3. Combine high carbohydrates like potatoes and sabudana(widely used in fasting) with other fibrous vegetables like spinach, cabbage, tomatoes, capsicum, bottle guard, etc. Also try to bake, roast or grill vegetables instead of deep-frying them.

4. Amaranth is the best protein source you can include during fasting. Make amaranth porridge with milk or cook it as namkeen dalia with lots of vegetables.

5. Kuttu is a brilliant combination of carbohydrates (70-75%) and protein(20-25%). Use it to make chapatti instead of gorging on puris.

6. Samak rice are extremely easy to digest and can be consumed in any kind of quantity.

7. Curb those evil sugar cravings by eating a lot of fruits raita, dates, apple kheer, samakrice kheer.

8. Try and adopt healthy snacking and don't binge on namkeens packets as they are high in salt and fat content.

9. Instead, opt for roasted makhana, mix of nuts (almonds/raisins/walnut)/ baked chips, roasted peanuts, etc.)

10. Substitute sugar with jaggery or honey.

11. Use skimmed milk instead of full cream milk.

Goji Berries for Weight Loss!

When compared to other fruits like apples, oranges, bananas, watermelons, raisins and cantaloupes, goji berries have the lowest glycemic index of 29. Hence, consuming goji berries reduces our cravings for starchy and sugary foods that increase weight.

21% of goji berries are made up of fiber content.

All high fiber foods control blood sugar levels and appetite. They help us feel full for longer periods and this reduces our food intake. Goji berries also contain chromium which helps control blood sugar, maintain lean muscle mass when we lose weight and help the body burn fat faster.

Weight gain is prevented since muscles can burn calories more efficiently than fat. Consuming goji berries also helps with efficient metabolism.

Food that we eat must be converted to energy. Otherwise they will be converted to fat and cause weight gain. Goji berries are rich in nutrients that are converted to energy like:

Calcium which lowers fat and promotes strong bones
Thiamin – vitamin B1 which is plentiful in goji berries can efficiently convert carbohydrates to energy. Thiamin also helps the thyroid gland function better. Thyroid problems are one cause of weight gain.
A balanced combination of minerals which promote good protein metabolism.

Having sufficient growth hormones helps lean body mass burn food into energy and fuel and prevents excess storage of calories in the form of fat.

Goji berries can alleviate stress levels. When we are stressed, there is an increased desire for high-fat calorie-rich foods. Stress also prevents burning of fat and secretion of growth hormone.

Goji berry is an adaptogen than reduces stress levels and lowers cortisol levels which promote weight gain.

Adaptogen also helps the body exercise more by reducing fatigue levels, increasing endurance, improve usage of oxygen, increase stamina, improves heart health and circulation.

The thyroid, pituitary, thymus and adrenal glands are strengthened by nutrient-rich goji berries. Muscles are also regenerated. Polysaccharides reduce muscle soreness. Goji berries protect the liver and eliminate toxins.

Nutrient-rich goji berries can be an integral part of a weight loss program.
However, since these are hard to come by in most places, the next best alternative is to eat the dried fruit, goji juice and tea. Whole berries offer us all the nutrients. Juices and teas may not provide us with fiber and proteins although they will give us plenty of vitamins, phytochemicals and minerals.

Apart from juice and fresh fruit, goji berries can be added to our cereals, mixed with other fruit juices, trail mixes, nut bars, whole fruit bars, baked goods, salads and soups.

Combining goji berries with other nutrient-rich berries will give us maximum health benefits.

Vitamin B12 is Important!!

Vitamin B12 deficiency can result in irreversible and potentially severe damage, especially to the human nervous system and brain. It can also cause anemia. Even at slightly lower-than-normal B12 levels, a person can experience depression, confusion memory problems and tiredness. However, these symptoms are not specific enough to diagnose vitamin B12 deficiency.

Constipation, loss of appetite, and weight loss can result.

More serious symptoms include neurological changes, such as numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. Some people may have difficulty maintaining balance.

Vitamin B12 deficiency carries a serious risk of permanent nerve and brain damage. Some people who do not get enough vitamin B12 have a higher risk of developing psychosis, mania, and dementia.

Infants who lack vitamin B12 may have unusual movements, such as face tremors, reflex problems, feeding difficulties, irritation, and eventual growth problems if left untreated.

Vitamin B12 can be found naturally in animal products, such as fish, meat, eggs, and dairy products. It does not typically occur in plant foods.

Foods that are good sources of vitamin B12 include:

Beef, pork, ham, poultry, and lamb
Fish, especially haddock, and tuna
Milk, cheese, and yogurt
Some nutritional yeast products

Vegans consume no animal products., but they can take vitamin B12 dietary supplements to avoid deficiency. This is particularly important during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.

Some types of soya milk and breakfast cereals are fortified with vitamin B12.

Some nutritional yeast products may contain vitamin B12.

Irregular Periods.......Eating Too Little or Exercising Too Much could be the reason says Dr Deepa Agarwal, Best Dietician in Hyderabad.

This can slow your metabolism down. The body will slow itself down in response to a lack of food or excessive amounts of exercise to conserve itself. Studies show that if you do aerobic exercise for more than 1 hour a day, your metabolic rate can drop by as much as 15%.
In addition, eating too little can have the same effect. If you are eating too little, so much so that your fat stores cannot cover your calorie deficit, your body will begin to use lean mass to get the energy that it needs. This study shows that over a 6 month period of a 25% calorie deficit, your metabolic rate will only drop about 6%.
Studies show that as long as you’re eating at enough of a deficit that your fat stores can cover, your metabolic rate doesn’t change too much. If you do go over that deficit, though, your metabolic rate will severely drop in order to protect vital organs (this is a real “starvation mode” response from your body).
Against all logic, adding some extra calories from fat and protein to your daily macros may help. Try it for a few days, and see the results. If you exercise a lot, try cutting it back some and give yourself some extra rest days. My personal advice is 4 days maximum of hard training during the week.

Eat Healthy This Monsoon!

Eat fruits as they help you restore energy. Apples, mangoes, pomegranates, and pears are best suggestible.
Have medium to low salt food and avoid heavy salty food as they are responsible for high blood pressure and water retention.
Eating watery foods like lassi, watermelon, rice, muskmelon creates swelling in the body. So, better opt for foods which are drying in nature like corn, gram flour, chick pea etc.
Foods such as brown rice, oats, and barley are the best foods one could have in this monsoon.
Body’s immunity can be increased by adding a dash of garlic to the soups, sir fries and curries you intake.
Opt for yogurt, curd and almonds in your diet instead of milk. Drink only boiled and purified water to protect yourself from harmful germs and drinking plenty of water keeps your body hydrated.
Consuming bitter vegetables like bitter gourd, and bitter herbs like neem, turmeric powder and methi seeds help in preventing infections.
Consume drying oils like corn oil or light oil and avoid heavy oils like sesame oil, peanut oil and mustard oil as they fall in first place to invite infections.
People who face skin allergies during rainy seasons must avoid spicy foods. Spicy foods raise body temperature and stimulate blood circulation and it leads to allergies and skin irritation. Other problems such as boils, change in skin color dullness, rashes, pyodera are also some skin damaging effects which arise in this season.Avoid naturally sour foods like tamarind, tomatoes and lime in your diet as it promotes water retention.
Avoid too much of fish and meat this season and heavy curries and non- vegetarians should go for light meat preparations like stew and soups.
Astringent, mildly bitter and pungent foods must be best served this season.
Drink lots of herbal teas, especially those with antibacterial properties. These include ginger, pepper, honey, mint and basil leaves. Excessive intake of coffee and tea dehydrates body fluids so they must be better avoided.
Vegetables like cauliflower, potatoes, cluster beans, ladies finger, kidney beans, pigeon pea, and sprouted grains must be avoided.
Eat steamed salads instead of raw vegetables as they contain active bacteria and virus that cause bacterial and viral infections.
Have fresh radish juice to fight cold and cough. To reduce mucous formations add pipli and rock salt to warm water. This reduces the natural monsoon ailments.
Better eat seasonal fruits as non- seasonal fruits get infested with worms during the monsoons. Pomegranates, lychees, apples, bananas are among the recommended.
Avoid eating fried items, pre- cut fruits and juices from road side vendors and stick to high quality and hygiene.
People who suffer with arthritis should drink warm water with tulsi and dalchini (cardamom) on an empty stomach in the morning. Doing this improves bowel syndromes and also decreases pains in joints.
Always wash vegetables well and keep them clean especially if they are taken raw.
