Finally rains are here. Who all love the rain? I know I do.

No doubt that early morning view from the window full of greenery and wetness refreshes your mind and soul, but you need to be careful about the infections and diseases monsoon brings – mostly due to unhygienic food and water.


  • Properly wash fruits and vegetables
  • Eat barley, brown rice and oats
  • Add garlic to soups, stir-fries and curries
  • Avoid milk, have curd
  • Drink more water (preferably warm water)
  • Drink green tea once a day to keep your immune system strong
  • Use anti-bacterial soap and face wash
  • Use talcum powder to keep skin dry


  • No oily food, street food or spicy food
  • No watermelons or muskmelons
  • Not too much of mangoes
  • Intake of dairy products should not be high
  • Don’t ignore skin problems and allergies as this could be a sign of dengue

Our body constantly gets affected with allergies, infections, indigestion problems, so we must keep our body resistant against such diseases. The important point to keep in mind is that you must avoid oily food, street food or any type of food that is prepared in bulk else there is a possibility that it upsets your stomach.

The worst way to lose weight
12 July 2014
Unfortunately, the worst way to lose weight is also the most common. Don’t make the same mistakes. Muscle loss…horrible food cravings…metabolic damage…depression…All this and more is possible when you do all the wrong things to lose weight. We all know someone that has used these terrible weight loss methods, and maybe even have tried a few ourselves. I want to share with you how to lose weight in the worst possible way, explain why it’s the worst, and help you understand what to do instead.   Step 1: Eat less and starve (Severely restrict your calories) The longer you remain in a caloric deficit, the more weight you can lose. But it also means… The more your metabolism slows down. The more muscle you lose. The more your body becomes stressed. The more your anabolic hormones decrease. This will create the frustrating situation wherein you are eating very little every day, yet not losing weight anymore. Generally speaking, I recommend that people diet to lose weight for up to 10-12 weeks at a time, and then increase calories to a maintenance level (eat 100% of the energy your body burns every day) for 2-3 weeks.    A low-protein diet is great for accelerating muscle loss while in a caloric deficit. High-protein diets, on the other hand… Are more effective at reducing body fat, including abdominal fat in particular. Help preserve lean mass. Increase satiety, helping you avoid hunger pangs and cravings. (In case you’re wondering if a high-protein diet is bad for your kidneys, this is a great myth) Step 4: Don’t Do Any Resistance (Weight) Training Many people compare cardio with weight loss, and think the more they do, the more weight they lose. While cardio does help burn calories and thus fat, and while doing more will result in more calories burned, it’s a big mistake to do an excessive amount of cardio while dieting to lose weight. Why? There are two primary reasons: Because your body is already under stress due to the caloric deficit, it’s easier to overtrain when you’re dieting to lose weight. We experience overtraining in several ways: â€œburnout,” general fatigue, depression, decreased immunity,and more. It’s no fun. You’re more likely to experience excessive metabolic slowdown, which can persist long after weight loss is stopped. <span style="\&quot;line-height:" 1.6em;\"="">Looking for healthy and permanent weight loss, CLICK HERE!
