Flat Tummy - Interesting facts

Dear Reader, 

I hope articles I am writing in this blog are helping you in giving some knowledge and helping you in maintaining healthy life style. When I was checking something in Facebook I came across an  interesting posting from some one. It gave me a though about this article. I would like to share some idea about getting flat tummy. 

Readers I am also using these tips which I am going to share with you today to achieve flat tummy. I am sharing the photo which gives us information about how our food habit needs to be . This does not mean that you need to take less food or low carbohydrate food, we need carbohydrate  which is source of energy, but make a wise decision about how much carb you need for better energy. So if you take less carbs than what your body require to function slowly your body tend to loose energy. Specially when you are doing exercise then your body need lot of energy. 

  1. Avoid food products which are made with Maida (multipurposeflour) – these foods are without any Fiber, absolutely zero fiber which is not at all good. Try to take food with high fiber. Personally I prefer brown rice compared to white rice. If you think it's hard for you to choose brown rice, then there are excellent Fiber supplements (I  like Organic Fiber supplement NUTRILITE INVISIFIBER you can click on this link and buy online) in market which can be mixed with food and can be consumed. 
  2. Instead of reducing food intake reduce quantity but increase the number of meals, for example instead of taking 3 heavy meals take 6 small meals. This will make sure food will be efficiently used by your body.
  3. Next tip is the one which my friend always follow and recommended so many times also. That is taking last meal at least 2hr before going to sleep. Other way we can say try go avoid sleeping after taking meal immediately.
  4. Consume as much water as possible when you try to reduce tummy or body weight. (read my next article to understand relation between water & human body. That will help you to understand improve your water intake.) 
  5. If you take enough fiber, your digestive system is going to work hard to digest the food that way it's going to burn more calories . Also you don't feel lot hungry as fiber rich food fills up the stomach. 

Some good workout tips which can help us reduce tummy, checkout this video. Just walking for jogging is not going to put stress on tummy which can reduce tummy fat or reduce tummy so this following video is good one to reduce tummy.  

If you think this information is going to help , please share this with family and friends. Lets increase the awareness about healthy way for getting flat tummy. Please post your feed back or comments in following comments section.

But if you are thinking you are not walking those many steps a day then for sure this article is for you.

Take a decision : Part 3 Vitamin D

Dear Readers, 

               It's been long time I wrote articles on this blog. Happy to come back with new article. Last week I was talking to my mentor about some future plans for my business & career and he was suggesting me to move forward and publish more articles which is helping lot of people to take good decisions with their health management. So I decided to keep this blog page update date with helpful information. Today I am going to write about Effects and symptoms of Vitamin D decisions. 

I remember when I went for my annual checkup, my Doctor explained me about Vitamin D importance, she is doing her work related topic in Stanford Medical research. She explained very clearly about how Vitamin D deficiency can cause cancer. For every healthy body Vitamin D levels must be around 50ng/ml, any thing below that will be considered as deficiency. I remember that I was thinking why I will have vitamin D deficiency as I am exposed to sun for some time in a day and taking some good food which has Vitamin D. After looking at my Vitamin D levels report my thoughts are wrong I asked my Dr. I had deficiency, I was stunned with the details. Most of us will have high Vitamin D deficiency for sure after knowing these things. Even when we are in sunlight our body might not be able to make Vitamin D from sun light its complex process how our body makes vitamin D from. I am not going to talk about that now I would like to keep this article simple. Lets quickly take a look at Cause of vitamin D deficiency and symptoms of deficiency. 

First and foremost thing to talk about is sunlight: lot of us thinks that we will get enough vitamin D from sunlight but there are so many things which we don't know about how our body makes vitamin D from sun light. Lets take look at why our body might not be making enough vitamin D. 

Are you using sunscreen lotion to protect your skin from Sun-damage (UV radiation)   this will block your skin getting sun exposure which can limit your body making vitamin D from sun light. Other limitations are some of us works in indoors this can also limit us from getting necessary  amount of sun light. some of the people are leaving in places where they have limited sun-light that can also cause the deficiency. so i consider one of the cause as Your exposure to sunlight is limited.

You don't consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time. There is interesting article i wrote in the past related how our body might fall deficiency for any Vitamins or Minerals. Click here to read you will understand why we don't consume recommended levels of Vitamin over Time. 

There are some few more reasons, but i highly recommend every one to get Vitamin D level test done if your varmint levels are not according to standard 50ng/ml there there is risk to some of major problems which are caused by Vitamin D deficiency. 
  • You have dark skin
  • Your kidneys cannot convert vitamin D to its active form.
  • Your digestive tract cannot adequately absorb vitamin D

Health issues with deficiency of Vitamin D: 
  • Increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease
  • Cognitive impairment in older adults
  • Severe asthma in children
  • Cancer

By taking high quality Vitamin D supplements we can avoid us from all these things. Personally i used Nutrilite Vitamin D (Nutrilite is worlds #1 Organic vitamin & supplement brand with 75 Years of proven history). After taking this for 90 days and went for Dr. checkout again my Doctor was amazed with the results  initially she recommended high dosage of some over the counter Vitamin D but with the knowledge what i have about dietary supplements i sued this Doctor was really impressed with the results personal she ordered for her usage and started using it. 

Please share your inputs and feed back in comments, you can follow us on our Facebook page for Optimal health (currently its a closed group) but you can request to add you on this page.  

I wish all my readers to get excellent quality of health. Will keep posting with necessary information which every one need to know on regular basis.
