If this is your father's routine then he is stuck in the vicious circle of an unhealthy lifestyle.

- Wake up late and bloated
- Start day with tea/coffee
- Little or no breakfast
- Quick lunch or junk food
- Evening snack/coffee/tea
- Snacks/fried stuff at home
- Late and heavy dinner followed by desserts, etc
- Sleep late

Oh yes, this sounds so true. In fact its not only your father, you, your friends and family may be under the same boat. So how do you get out of this cycle in today’s busy and stressful life.

Its not hard. And its not easy too. Try to embed these basic guidelines in your daily routine:

- Sleep early/ 2 hours after dinner
- Wake up feeling light
- Start your day with fruit
- Have healthy breakfast/tea/coffee
- Have a mid morning meal 2 hours after breakfast
- Have home made lunch
- Protein rich evening snacks
- Salad before dinner
- Light dinner

What do you think now? Its hard? No. Follow this for a month and see the changes yourself.

Get out of the vicious circle of caffeine and nicotine kicks in the morning, skipping lunch, not feeling hungry till evening, overeating in the night, getting disturbed sleep and waking up dull and tired in the morning.
The day you wake up feeling hungry and with an urge to clear the stomach, know that you have started on the path of permanent results. Early morning hunger is a sign of youth, health, happiness and peace.

It is time for me now to lose weight
18 June 2014
Being overweight puts you at higher risk for developing a number of health problems including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood cholesterol, stroke and some kinds of cancer. Obesity puts you at a much higher risk of these lifestyle diseases. AND THE FACT STILL IS â€“ people only start making more healthy choices when they start seeing the consequences of living an unhealthy one. Act now!   Have a wedding function to attend? Getting engaged soon? Want to look cool or hot in that dress? Just want to build up some six packs? YOU ARE PROBABLY OUT TO LOSE WEIGHT QUICKLY AND CAN SHED ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY TO ACHIEVE IT. Hang on friend. Stop, think, learn, listen and then go ahead. Some practical and real life TIPS about weight loss by Dt Lavleen (Dietician in Chandigarh) – MUST READ Think fat loss, not weight loss. Weight loss is loss of muscle mass + loss of body water + loss of bone density + loss of weight of other body parts. Fat loss is fat loss and this is what you should be aiming for! Read more here. Safest way to lose weight is to eat healthy and exercise moderately. Don't diet, rather eat correct food! Other wise you will be stuck in the cycle of losing weight and re-gaining it. Make healthy eating your lifestyle and lose weight. Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going. LOSE WEIGHT QUICK! Sounds good? Yes but its a fail. Don’t try to lose weight quickly. You will regain more than you were before. Safest weight loss is not more than 4 kgs a month. Don’t go for any therapies – laser, lipolysis or anything that involves physical alteration to your body to lose weight. These are the worst and cost you a nightmare. Walk daily. Just by walking daily for 45 minutes, a man can lose 3 kgs a month. For women, its a different story. Read here why? Weight loss is not hard. Just get out of your bed, forget your smart phone or smart device for at least an hour a day, and go for a walk, job, cycling, climbing, skipping. If you are determined and set a goal, you will almost always lose weight. Don't just do a Google search for weight loss diet and start following it. Like every body is different, metabolic rates and digestive systems are different too! A diet chart is not same for every body. You may adversely affect your body and health instead of just losing weight. Consult a certified dietitian or a nutritionist who can offer you customized diet plans based on your body analysis and medical history.  
Chronic diseases caused by food choice and toxic food ingredients
26 June 2014
Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.” Yes, sounds awful but true. Most of us (or I should say most of us who are health conscious) try to eat good and healthy food for a healthy body and lifestyle. We know that fruits, vegetables and whole grains are a good choice but if they a grown in depleted or contaminated soils, are we really eating healthy? You may already have heard about soil depletion but what does it mean to us? Chemicals and pesticides used nowadays to produce crops are not only hazardous for human body who consume them, but also bad for animals and our environment. Depleted soils produce crops that have very less amount of nutrient value and more toxic. Plants get their food from soil, so if the soil is contaminated, plants are going to get contaminated. In turn, the crops and vegetables grown on these plants, if consumed by human body, we are consuming same chemical which are going to cause health problems. One of my relatives in Moga, Punjab, they are seeds distributors and know a lot about farming, etc. I was once shocked by their saying “we don’t eat fruits because we have seen how they are grown”. I am not going to explain what all they said here but ultimately they referred to it as “zehar” – poisonous food. One of their neighbors grow their own vegetables in a backyard park and they usually take from them. What can we do? Until we make a change, the cycle is going to continue. How do we make a change? Break the cycle of economic-based industrialized farming practices and go organic. Organic fertilizers put the good minerals back into the soil and avoid harmful chemicals. No doubt organic costs more but remember your health and well being is priceless. Good health habits Avoid medicines as much as you can. Don’t just go over the counter and buy antibiotics, etc. No steroids,  or other questionable bodybuilding supplements No diet pills, stimulants or fat burning pills No fad dieting (no starving, quick weight loss diets) Walk daily Eat organic where possible Take less stress, be happy Enjoy the life Avoid list Hydrogenated oils (causes heart disease) High-fructose corn syrup / sugar / sucrose (causes diabetes and obesity) Homogenized milk fats (cause heart disease and cardiovascular disorders) Soft drinks, junk foods, snack foods or fast foods Processed foods such as cookies, crackers, frozen dinners, etc. Fried foods White flour and any foods containing white flour Brand-name laundry detergents (loaded with toxic fragrance chemicals) Popular deodorants (contain aluminum) Fluoride toothpaste (Yes, fluoride is a dangerous ingredient) Popular shampoos / soaps / conditioners (all contain harmful fragrance chemicals) Achieving good health is not complicated. A human body already knows how to be healthy. Just give your body good nutrition so it has the building materials it needs to heal the disease and rebuild itself. Avoid foods and food ingredients that cause disease. Pingback from dietitianlavleen.com
