Many people go on weight loss journeys and also successfully lose weight. But they are not able to maintain this lost weight for a long time, but gradually gain some weight. So what can be done to get rid of excess fat and keep it that way for a long time? Consistency and a lot of discipline. On Instagram, nutritionist Azra Khan explained in a video that to stay at their ideal weight, people need to develop healthy habits, which includes eating clean most of the time and exercising every day.
Khan said: “Weight loss is important, but not gaining the weight lost is more important. So always make sure your weight loss efforts are practical and sustainable.” She added in the caption that it’s important to “focus on building habit and not hitting a number on the scale.” “…because if you take shortcuts and crash diet to lose weight, the number is never maintained.”
She listed the following three healthy habits that are essential for permanent weight loss:
1. Be physically active: Take 7,000 to 8,000 steps every day to stay in shape.
2. Exercise: Establish a routine and exercise 4 days a week to keep your body and health in check.
3. Balance healthy eating with junk food: Eat clean and healthy 80 percent of the time, and eat what you think is junk food the other 20 percent.

Diet and proper nutrition are the most important. I believe and always say that fitness is like a tripod. Good food, good exercise and good sleep. Without one of them, the tripod falls over,” said the 49-year-old.

Include pearl millet, sorghum bread and finger millet in your diet. yes easy That’s the farmer’s life,” he said. He predicted the future of “plant-based eating,” adding that he’s trying to “progressively phase out all dairy from my diet.” Abraham also admitted that he hasn’t had his favorite candy, kaju katli, in over 25 years. “That was 27 years ago. It was a long time. I don’t have carbonated drinks. I believe, and I guess you do the same…that sugar is the world’s greatest poison. More than smoking cigarettes.”

Since the start of the summer season in March this year, numerous states have reported extreme heat conditions, with several locations recording highs of between 40 and 45 degrees. According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the current heat wave could intensify further in the next five days.
“A rise in maximum temperature of around two degrees Celsius is very likely over the next two days in most parts of north-west India,” IMD said. Intense heat can be detrimental to health, leading to dehydration, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat exhaustion. Aside from staying out of the sun, wearing protective accessories and clothing, and keeping the house cool, you also need to follow certain diet and nutritional measures to stay fit and healthy. According to Sahiba Bhardwaj, nutritionist and nutrition educator, “Diet and nutrition play an important role in such a condition. Staying hydrated and consuming more cooling foods instead of heat-producing foods are crucial ways to help the body stay cool during a heat wave.”

Before there were vaginal probiotics, there was the yogurt douche. In the 1970s, a common home remedy for yeast infections and other irritating ailments was to soak a tampon in plain, unsweetened yogurt and insert it into the vagina. The same live bacteria that make yogurt good for the gut might also be good for the vagina, the reasoning is.
Although yogurt douches never went commercially mainstream, the concept of infusing a sick vagina with good bacteria has come in the form of vaginal probiotics. Many of these supplements (which can be taken orally or vaginally) are sold in drugstores and online marketplaces, and promoted on Instagram and in subway ads. and “create an ideal environment for healthy microflora to thrive.” Currently, antibiotics are the only recommended treatment for symptomatic BV, but experts say they’re an imperfect solution. Like a forest fire, they tend to wipe out not only the infection but most of the microbial residents of the vagina, creating an imbalance that can lead to future infections. Vaginal probiotics, their makers claim, could be a simple and effective alternative, adding “good” microbes and boosting the ecosystem before or during an infection.
