Ghee As a Health Boon

Tulika Bakshi

I can teach each and every topics very easily and make it stronger for the students.

Advantages of ghee in weight loss and health: 1. Ghee has a high smoke point (250 °C 482 °F). You can cook and fry with ghee and it will not break down into free radicals like many other oils. 2.

Advantages of ghee in weight loss and health:


1. Ghee has a high smoke point (250 °C 482 °F).

You can cook and fry with ghee and it will not break down into free radicals like many other oils.

2. Ghee does not spoil easily so does not need refrigeration.

Some ghee mixtures last up to 100 years.

3. Buttery taste without causing dairy allergies.

Ghee is made from butter but the milk solids and impurities have been removed so most people who are lactose or casein intolerant have no issue with ghee.

Ghee has a nutty buttery taste without disturbing dairy sensitivities.

High Nutrition:

4. Ghee is rich in the oil soluble vitamins A and E.

5. Ghee is rich in K2 and CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid): an antioxidant with anti-viral properties if it is sourced from grass fed cows.

Energy and Weight Management.

Ghee is converted directly into energy like carbohydrates.

6. Ghee is Nutritionally Rich Like Coconut Oil. Ghee is rich in medium chain fatty acids which are absorbed directly to the liver (like carbs) and burnt as energy. Athletes can use ghee as a consistent energy source.

7. Weight LossThe energy from these medium chain fatty acids can be used to burn other fats in the system and lose weight.

Metabolism or metabolic rate is defined as the series of chemical reactions in a living organism that create and break down energy necessary for life. More simply, it's the rate at which your body expends energy or burns calories.

Our bodies burn calories in several ways .Through the energy required to keep the body functioning at rest, this is known as your basal metabolic rate (BMR). Your BMR is partly determined by the genes you inherit.

  • Through everyday activities
  • Through exercise

Metabolism is partly genetic and largely outside of one's control. Changing it is a matter of considerable debate. Some people are just lucky. They inherited genes that promote a faster metabolism and can eat more than others without gaining weight. Others are not so lucky and end up with a slow metabolism.

Buying personal trainers' services is an emotional decision and one that often lacks adequate thought.

1. Check references.

It’s not enough to rely on the reviews online or posted in a gym. Ask any potential trainer for two previous or current clients that you can call. There have been too many examples of unscrupulous “professionals”? who fabricate or steal before-and-after pictures and testimonials.

2. Leave your wallet at home.

Not having a credit card on hand ensures that you don’t make any rash, emotional decisions that you may regret. Gyms have become really good at convincing people to sign up right away after a tour and short sales meeting.

3. Decide how important convenience is.

A great trainer is worth traveling for but you’ve got to be honest and determine what’s important for you. New exercisers should spend at least a month seeing a coach 2-3x/wk to get a strong baseline and establish good habits. In this case having somebody close to where you work or live might be warranted.

4. When to become immediately skeptical.

If your trainer tries to sell you supplements or advertises that they are a “rep”? for a company, become an immediate skeptic. While not bad 100% of the time, the trainer is legally responsible for disclosing anything that might affect a recommendation

5. How much you want to pay.

Good personal trainer’s value is priceless.

First – there is no precedent or regulation on pricing. It’s not like buying chicken where you know how much a pound costs and any variation from the mean is immediately noticeable. Price ranges wildly – from 750k/hr to 5000k/hr.

Location will determine price. A trainer in metro city will cost exponentially more than a trainer in small town.

A trainer who specializes will likely be in-demand amongst that population and therefore charge more for their services. If you have a special need, say you’ve just had a baby and you want a post-natal fitness specialist because you have diastasis recti, then you can expect to pay a little more. It’s the same idea as hiring a general mechanic vs. a dude who specializes in Harley Davidson bikes to fix your motorcycle.

Finally, price will be dependent on experience. Hiring a cheaper, less experienced trainer might be fine if you have adequate resolve and prior weightlifting experience.

6. Mention any special needs.

Before hiring a personal trainer you should be 100% confident that he can effectively manage all aspects of your program.

If you mention a chronic problem a great trainer should show that she’s experienced, knowledgeable, and able to work with it or around it (whatever is most appropriate). In addition, a trainer should be willing to work with your primary care physician or other health providers (physios, chiros, osteos etc.) if necessary.

This is an important decision.

An investment to hire the best personal trainer for you can change your life but navigating the murky waters to find the right one can be rife with challenges. If you’re serious that now is the time to make a change, take your time. There are great trainers out there, you’ve just got to find us

DIET

Diet plays an important role in the management of diabetes. Being diabetic does not mean that the patient should deviate from the normal diet completely. The aim of the diabetic diet should be to control the blood sugar and to maintain an adequate nutritional status.

The following components of a diabetic diet if properly followed will help a diabetic achieve a good control of blood sugar. 

Maintain normal weight
Choose right type of carbohydrate
Increase fiber in diet
Include antioxidants in the diet 
Fixed meal timings
Smaller meals

• Maintain normal weight:
Most of the diabetics are obese or overweight. They must try to achieve ideal body weight. If underweight, then they should try to bring it up and maintain at ideal body weight. 

Choose right type of carbohydrate:
Most of our body cells utilize glucose as a major source of energy. Carbohydrates are the main source of glucose in the body.

There are two types of carbohydrate 
i. Simple carbohydrate
ii Complex carbohydrate

Simple carbohydrate consist of the basic glucose units joined together in a straight chain. As soon as they get into the digestive system the links break up very quickly releasing the glucose molecules that raise the blood glucose level.

Complex carbohydrates are those in which the glucose units are linked in a complex form i.e. branched structure. When this is put into the digestive system the links break up slowly, thus gradually releasing the glucose. So there is a gradual rise in blood glucose levels. This allows insulin more time to work.

Thus, a diabetic must select the kind of carbohydrate which will constantly supply the blood with glucose but will not suddenly increase the blood glucose level. In other words, a diabetic patient must eat complex carbohydrates instead of simple carbohydrates.

To distinguish between simple and complex carbohydrate it is not always possible to get the food tested in a laboratory every time before consuming it. For this, one simple rule is anything that tastes sweet when put into the mouth is simple carbohydrate. Example raw sugar, honey, jaggery. Those foods which do not taste sweet are complex carbohydrate. Example chapatti, vegetables.

If you want, you can make use of artificial sweeteners like sweetex, equal, sugar-free to make the food taste sweet.

Increase fiber in diet:
Diabetics must consume high fiber foods. Fiber slows down the absorption of food in the intestine. Thereby they are very effective in controlling blood glucose. Wheat, oat, wheat bran, all vegetables (except potato) are good sources of fiber. Fruits, whole cereals, whole pulses also have more fiber. One should take a lot of salads with meals, put lot of vegetables and choker in the flour for making chapattis, take sprouts etc. to increase the fiber content of food. 

Include antioxidants in the diet:
Diabetes also damages nerves, eyes, kidneys, heart and leads to early aging. Most of these degenerations are promoted by oxidation of cells. 

This can be prevented by consumption of vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E. Intake of a fairly good amount of colored fruits (non-sweet) and vegetables, citrus fruits, whole pulses, whole cereals, sprouts will provide all antioxidants to the requirement level.

Fixed meal timings:
A diabetic should take the same amount of food every day. It is better to have fixed meal timings, as many of the diabetics are either on insulin or medication. This would ensure adequate action of these medications with the release of glucose from food.

Smaller meals:
Instead of having 1-2 big meals a diabetes patient must have 6-7 smaller meals. This helps in preventing peak rise in blood glucose levels and helps to maintain it within normal limits. A diabetic must not also skip meals or do fasting, to prevent chances of hypoglycemia.

We all know that eating salad can sometimes get boring and hence indulge to all the salad dressings out there in the market. However, a pro tip would be to use dry seasoning instead of wet, gravy-like sauces. When you use dry ones, you tend to save a lot of calories that can be used to eat your favourite foods during the day. If you every check out the nutrition content of the sauces/dressings, they are usually high in calorie count and sugar. Hence, its best to avoid them often!

Do you have other symptoms like tiredness, back pain, headache or as simple as hair fall? This people have very less muscles which is directly proportional to their protein intake. Generally they have lot of nutritional deficiencies, so first goal should be to deal with the nutrient deficit. To gain weight in healthy way, consume balanced diet with more protein rich foods to build muscles. Since your weight is less, the amount of protein you have to take is 1 to 1.25 gm protein / kg of ideal weight. You have to take supplements my dear, you can not get all the nutrients from food now. Soil has become very poor and missing in many nutrients. You can include sprouts, full cream milk & milk products, cheese, paneer frequently, peanut butter etc in your diet. For customised diet plan many things should be considered including dealing with the deficiencies with food supplements - as diet is missing so many important nutrients. To plan optimum diet, deal with deficiencies (nutrient gaps) & other concerns along with healthy weight gain, you can contact me separately. Hail Happy & Healthy! read less
