Buckwheat -kuttu

Buckwheat also known as Kuttu  a superfood eaten during fasting

Buckwheat is one of the healthiest, nuttiest, most versatile whole grains. And despite its name, it's really not related to wheat at all. Buckwheat is actually the seed of a flowering fruit that is related to rhubarb and sorrel. ... So it's a popular substitute for wheat for those who are gluten-intolerant.

Diabetes management during fasting

Diabetes management during fasts

Fasting should not make us weak, irritable or create an urge to indulge later. This happens when there is no noble goal behind fasting. The Bhagavad Gita urges us to eat appropriately – neither too less nor too much - yukta-aahaara, and to eat simple, pure and healthy food (a saatvik diet) even when not fasting.

Fasting with diabetes poses significant risks, following points should be considered while diabetics undertake fasting…

🍉Monitor your blood glucose regularly during the fast.

🍓Choose water or aim to drink sugar free and caffeine free drinks frequently throughout the day.

🍒If you experience hypoglycemic symptoms, it is advisable to break the fast.

🍅Do light exercise and take rest when possible to help avoid lowering of blood glucose levels.

🍑Keep the portion sizes moderate. Overeating is a greatest risk.

🍎Continue taking your diabetes medicine, regarding dosage and timings talk to your doctor.

🍊If you eat one meal should contain a balance of whole grain like jowar, Bajra, jav, nachani as well as some protein from  pulses, panir, curd,milk and small amounts of heart healthy fats, limit added sugars.

🍏If you need to eat fasting foods eat Rajigira,  Samak, kuttu (Buck Wheat)  instead of sabudana, fried foods and sweets.

🍎Eat every 2-3 hrs, include fresh fruits and vegetables.

🍋Keep sensible portions in mind and follow the same guidelines for healthy eating that you do the rest of the year.

Nursing mothers and weight loss

Nursing mother and weight loss - World Breastfeeding Week 1 - 7 August

A common concern for most of the new mother after delivery is to lose the weight gained during pregnancy….

A good rule of thumb is to take in 200-500 calories in excess of what you needed to maintain your weight before you were pregnant while you are nursing.

Breastfeeding doesn't make you gain weight - in fact, you use up calories when you nurse, and helps you get rid of extra weight more quickly while you are nursing. You might not realize that you already began your weight-loss efforts the moment you put your baby to your breast.

Breastfeeding burns around 300 calories per day, so it can help you begin to lose some of your excess baby weight. What's more, breastfeeding can help stimulate contractions in your uterus that help your belly shrink back to its regular size after pregnancy to help you regain your old shape, too.

Your body stores up fat during your pregnancy to provide the extra calories needed for milk production. It is easier to lose lower body fat (hips, buns, and thighs) when you are breastfeeding compared to the mom who is formula feeding. .

Begin your weight loss program slowly when you are breastfeeding. Increase your activity level.

Nutritional status and TV watching

Do you feed your kids infront TV or watching or playing games on mobiles, tab, Ipads etc

Why is it that this habits are not good have you given this a thought?

The child is not eating mindfully, is unaware of the texture, the taste and the portion size so it is possible for the mother to overfeed the child which can in long run result in obesity.

The better option would be either tell some story regards the healthy food  rather than making them watch TV or use gadgets.

Know further whether it affects the nutritonal status of your child
