Diet Corner

Your diet plays a major role in determning how healthy you will be. So make sure you eat the right foods, at the right time.

The very word ‘diet’ can make the bravest of us quake in fear, especially those of us who equate diet with starving.

This diet doesn’t require that you starve. In fact, you can eat all you want, as long as you eat the right stuff.

And what is this ‘right stuff’ of which you can eat any amount?

The answer is green vegetables. Needless to say, if you cook the vegetables in oil, you’re not going to get very far with your weight loss plan. Most Indians don’t believe that it is possible to cook a meal without using a whole lot of oil. Nothing can be further from the truth. Vegetables taste great when they are saut?, using very little oil. And if you must use oil, try and use extra virgin olive oil.

The greatest gift you can give your family is a wholesome diet. You can eat tasty and unhealthy, and you can eat tasty and healthy. Most of us opt for the tasty and unhealthy because it seems to be the easiest option. Making the right, healthy choice will by far impact our health, and our weight, favourably.

Eat a variety of foods. Don’t stick to the same five vegetables and dals all the time! By eating various foods, you are likely to meet a much broader range of nutritional requirements. In addition, if you eat something which you eat very seldom, your family is probably not going to mind if it is cooked in a different way, and not cooked in oil.

Always opt for food that is produced locally, and that is in season. Buying foods transported from far really makes no sense. In the first place, it is far more expensive. In the second place, since it comes from far, it is possible that it is packed with preservatives. Stay away from packaged foods. They have very little food value, and are packed with fats, salt and sugar. The lower processed the food, the better the food value. It is better to prepare food from scratch. Add spices to compensate for the lack of oil in your food.

However, in this article we are not just concerned about eating healthy. We also want to know what we should avoid, in order to lose weight.

Stay away from sugar. This is possibly the hardest requirement of all, but it is a must if you are serious about losing weight. It may be hard for you to deprive yourself of sweet indefinitely, and it may not work, so the best thing to do would be to set a target for yourself. Decide that you will not eat anything that has sugar in it, for a month. If you don’t think you can do this, opt for a saccharine-free sugar substitute. Try Sugarite, which is sugar without the calories, or Stugar, which is a natural sweeter made from a South American plant, and has around 1 calorie per teaspoon as opposed to 20 calories in a spoon of sugar.

Exercises

If you want to lose weight, cardiovascular exercise is a must.

If you haven’t been exercising at all, start by walking a few blocks. Gradually increase the speed and the duration. Once you feel that you are ready, try jogging.

Jogging may seem overwhelming, especially if you have never jogged before. 43-year-old Sita had wanted to start jogging for a while, and would always say, “My aim is to be able to jog a round of this park without stopping.” So her friend Latha one day said “Why don’t you jog with me,” and Sita said, “Oh no, I will not be able to jog at all. Maybe after some time, when I feel like I have enough stamina.”

A month later, she met Latha again. When Latha asked her if she had started jogging, Sita admitted that she had not. Latha then said, “Look, why don’t you jog with me, and don’t set any target for yourself. Just jog as much as you can, and stop the minute you feel a little tired. It doesn’t matter even if you jog two steps.”

So, Sita agreed, and she jogged besides Latha for a minute before stopping. After that she made it a point to jog at least that distance everyday. Gradually, she increased the distance and, a few months later, she was able to jog an entire round of the park!

Set realistic goals for your exercise routine, or you will get disheartened. Sita’s goal was not to straight away jog ten rounds of the park. Do this, and you will lose heart before long. Almost everyone tries to start jogging at some point or the other, and then they start detesting it and give it up. This is because they push themselves to breakpoint the very first day, and then just cannot sustain the pace.

The best thing to do would be to start very gradually. Jog until you can, and stop when you feel tired. The next time you go for a jog, aim to jog at least the same amount. If you very nearly killed yourself the first time round, the second time you will be able to reach the same distance with a great deal off difficulty, and will dread your jogging session the third time. Even if you do manage to push yourself, you will finally give up trying to equal your first time, and will consequently get disheartened. So, start gradually.

Aim to reach a level of vigorous exercise. Walking is a great exercise, it will help you lose some weight, and it will help prevent you from putting on more, but if you want to reap all the benefits of walking, make sure you walk at a brisk pace. The key is to increase your heartbeat.

Make your weight loss programme a priority and put it above everything else. Just like your job timings are inflexible, and you work all your other activities around your office schedule, so also make an exercise schedule and never waiver. If you have to go for a movie, buy tickets for a show after your workout, or don’t go. If you have to meet friends for a drink after work, join them a little later, after completing your workout.

Health Care

The Indian healthcare sector has been growing at a frenetic pace in the past few years. The windfall began ever since the developed world discovered that it could get quality service for less than half the price.文档, 纸, 办公室, 作文, 业务, 应用程序, 护理, 检查, 检查表The Indian healthcare market is estimated to be US$ 30 billion and includes pharmaceuticals, healthcare, medical and diagnostic equipment and surgical equipment and supplies. Revenues from the healthcare sector account for 5.2 per cent of the GDP and it employs over 4 million people. Private spending accounts for almost 80 per cent of total healthcare expenditure.

According to a study by CII-McKinsey on ‘Health in India’, India will spend US$ 45.76 billion on healthcare in the next five years as the country, on an economic upsurge, is witnessing changes in its demographic profile accompanied with lifestyle diseases and increasing medical expenses.

Coupled with the expected increase in the pharmaceutical sector, the total healthcare market in the country could increase to US$ 53-73 billion (6.2-8.5 per cent of GDP) in the next five years.

Private healthcare will continue to be the largest component in 2012 and is likely to double to US$ 35.7 billion. It could rise by an additional US$ 8.9 billion if health insurance cover is extended to the rich and middle class
