A. I am taking up online consultations. If required you can visit me, but all the services and follow ups happen through call and video calls.
A. Try to relax. Take a break every hour; get up walk around. Eat a diet that will encourage a good bowel action. Increase the amount of cereal fibre in the diet. Try taking oats with dried fruits. Eat more fruit. But remember all of these can make symptoms of pain and bloating worse, so you might need to adjust the amounts until you find what suits you best. Reach out to me for a custom diet plan according to your body and nutrition level for treating constipation and other gut issues.
A. Bloating may be caused by eating sugary or starchy foods that are not completely absorbed in the small intestine, but are fermented by the bacteria in the colon which generate excessive amounts of gas. Such foods include fresh or dried fruits, especially plums, prunes, apricots, peaches apples, pears, incompletely ripened bananas, pulses,(beans, peas, lentils), root vegetables such as onions, beetroot, carrot, parsnip, reheated potato, cereals like oats and wheat, chewing gum and large quantities of milk and cream. So reduce your consumption of gassy foods. But you don’t have to eliminate them completely. As your bloating starts to improve, you can re-introduce more of these foods into your diet.
To know the right combination of food for treating bloating, get a custom diet plan made by me.
A. No. Don’t skip meals if you’re trying to lose weight. You’ll feel hungrier later and end up eating junk and unhealthy food more and also end up consuming more calories than required. Missing a meal can also leave you feeling weak, lethargic and inactive; it will also affect your activity levels and exercise routine. Having small, frequent, nutritious meals at regular intervals has been shown to help people lose more. It also helps to keep your blood sugar levels in check.
A. Crash Dieting can be dangerous. Crash Dieting forces your body into the starvation mode and brings lifestyle changes in your diet. Eating healthy and having all your macros and micros in proportion along with having a balanced diet with required restrictions will give you more health and vitality and also keep your weight in check.
A. You’ll be able to maintain your weight loss in a better way if you don’t have to permanently eliminate or restrict a single food group. Low-carb diets are designed for short stints because your body simply cannot function without carbohydrates for very long. Diets that have this as their weight loss technique are appealing because they promise quick results, but after few months they provide no greater weight loss benefit than a typical reduced-calorie, low-fat diet. Slow, steady weight loss with balanced diet and approach is much easier to maintain for life.
A. Your doctor may offer different medicines that can treat symptoms such as irregular periods, acne, excess hair, and elevated blood sugar. However reducing your carb intake, having plenty of fibre enough protein and fats, eliminating sugar from your diet and exercising regularly helps in practicing mind- full eating and keep stress levels in check.
