Fitness Problems Solved


Q: I am 36 years old. My height is 5ft and weight is 65kg. I want to gain weight and build muscles, but I don’t feel hungry. Please suggest what I should do.

A:
Dear Kumail, the most common reason for someone to not feel hungry is that they have either just eaten, or they have not burnt enough calories since they last ate. However, not feeling hungry or not wanting to eat when your body needs the calories is called anorexia and has many causes, including psychological (anorexia nervosa); chronic illness (especially kidney disease); and cancer. If you have anorexia combined with weight loss, you should consult your doctor as soon as possible.
Always keep this in mind that approximately three hours after eating a complete meal, you should feel hungry. It may occur even sooner if you are eating five to six smaller meals a day. If you do not, it may be for one of the reasons below:
• Low blood sugar from not eating properly. You might feel tired, irritable, lightheaded or jittery, and you don't recognize these feelings as hunger. Always think back to when you last ate. This will be your cue.
• You forget to eat because you are too busy. Be sure to set a regular eating routine especially if you have busy work schedules. Long periods of not eating can lead to overeating.
• You have always had a weight issue and never felt hunger? It is time to experience hunger. It can only happen if you eat at regular intervals.
If you are trying to gain muscle at the moment, unfortunately there is no magic bullet. You just have to eat. Resistance training and balanced eating are a great idea. You should also try just having more meals each day. You must start taking a balanced diet with added calories. Remember, you don't have to be hungry to eat, but you do need to eat to get healthier. You just need to figure out whether you desire it enough or not.

Q: I am 27 years old with weight 66kg and height 5ft 2 inches. My cholesterol levels are very high. Please suggest a diet plan to keep it at moderate level.

A:
Dear, high cholesterol increases your risk of heart diseases and heart attacks. You can improve cholesterol with medications, but it is better if you first make certain lifestyle changes to improve your cholesterol. Remember, diet alone won't be much beneficial. Exercise can improve cholesterol as well. Moderate physical activity can help raise high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol. With your doctor's recommendation, work out for at least 30 minutes in a day.
Physical activity, even with 10-minute intervals, several times a day, can help you begin to lose weight. Just be sure that you can keep up the changes you decide to make. Consider the following:
• Taking a brisk walk daily during your lunch hour
• Riding your bike to work
• Swimming laps
• Playing a sport
To stay motivated, find an exercise buddy or join an exercise group. Do remember that activity of any kind is helpful at this stage. Even taking the stairs instead of the elevator or doing a few sit-ups while watching television can make a difference.
Diet Plan
• 200ml skimmed milk + 1 cup whole-grain cereals + 1 apple
• 2 slices of bran bread + 2 egg whites
• 1 large bowl of fresh salad + 125g lean meat + 45g homemade chapatti
• 1 cup mixed fruits
• 1/2 cup fresh salad + 1 cup mixed pulses + 1-2 slices of bran bread
• 100ml low-fat milk
• Drink plenty of water each day. Eliminate trans-fats from your diet. Eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Increase soluble fibre in your diet and add whey protein as well.

Q: I am 15 years old. My height is 5ft 4 inches and weight is 42kg. I want to increase my height to at least 6ft 2 inches. Please suggest some exercises and a diet plan for me. Also, I want to increase my weight.

A:
Dear Faris, usually a child's height is determined by internal and external factors like genetics, daily nutritional intake, rest and sleep cycles, lifestyle, posture and environment. A person’s growth slows down after the first year of life, breaking down into mini growth spurts. By the time a child reaches adolescence, growth rates increase once again with girls hitting a major spurt between the ages of 8 and 13. Boys reach this growth spurt between the ages of 10 to 15. In order to ensure that you reach a healthy height and weight, you must learn certain lifestyle habits while practicing patience. Every child grows at a different rate, which stops after puberty.
These lifestyle changes include:
You must go to bed early in the evening. Sleeping about 10 to 12 hours every night is mandatory for you. You cannot grow properly without adequate rest. Boosting bedtime to even an hour earlier every night will help ensure rest for your growth cycle. Always take a balanced diet. Never be deficient in any of the vitamins and minerals. Exercise regularly. Keep yourself active all day long. These activities will encourage you to active, instead of sitting in front of the television or playing video games. A healthy routine will definitely help you in gaining height and weight. Here is an exercise and diet plan for you.
Exercise Plan
Mon/ Wed/ Fri:
Warm up : 5-10 mins; spot jogging; moderate pace.
Resistance + Cardio:
Perform each step for 60 secs followed by rest for 10 secs; repeat the whole cycle twice.
Modified push-ups + farmers walk + assisted dips + jumping jacks + squats + aerobic tread + mountain climbing + toe touch walk + lift up on T-bar + 90 degree crunches + floor swimming + cross crunches + bridging
Cool down: Walk slowly for 5 mins.
Stretching: Stretch all major parts of your body and hold each for 15 secs.
Diet Plan
• 200ml fresh juice
• 1 whole egg + 1 egg white + 2 slices of bran bread + 1 apple + 200ml milk
• 1 cup pasta
• 1 cup fresh salad + 150g meat + 50g homemade chapatti
• 1 cup mixed fruits or baked potato

Model: Saima Haroon | Latest Party Dress


A girl would never go wrong by keeping it simple. When high fashion seems rhythmic and couture sounds too flashy to wear, try outfits which are elegant, but not-so-loud. A dash of deep hues with a hint of sparkle is all that you need to outshine.

Double shaded
Pair contrasting shades of teal blue and brick red with a tinge of muted gold. The glistening yarn in the fabric adds an element of shimmer in the otherwise subtle boxy shirt. Add a few gemstones to highlight your neckline.

Tuscan Sun
This honey-hued number oozes delicacy with intricate scarlet and auric embroidery. Weaves of red buds trickle down the front bodice with a flawless cutwork lace border on the hemline. The shirt is complemented with banarsi red pants.

short and long Nail Art

Category: | 0 comments

              
Live on the edge

If there is any nail art that suits short and long nails equally, it is geometric nails. This style is good for parties as well as everyday routine. It just makes the hands stand out. This tutorial might be a bit more complex then what you are regularly used to. But all you need is a little practice with proper tools and you are all set. You will need: · 4 opaque nail polishes in bright colours · Opaque taupe nail polish · Thin striping brush · Top coat and base coat How to 1. Apply double coats of opaque taupe nail polish on all nails. Don’t wait for it to dry and proceed to the next step. 2. Work with one colour on all nails at a time. First, using the striping brush paint black lines on all the nails. Work slowly and take your time perfecting the lines. If you are unsure about anything, paint the lines first on a piece of paper to get a good grip on the brush and perfect the sharpness. Clean and dry your brush before starting on the nails. 3. Using the clean brush, paint bright green lines right next to the black lines. Using a neon colour next to the dark one will make it pop out even more. Clean and dry your brush. 4. Repeat the above mentioned step in a similar manner using your third nail polish. 5. Using the same cleaned brush, add white details to your thumb, point and ring fingers. 6. Clean up around cuticles and apply a couple of coats of clear fast drying top coat. Allow sufficient time for the nails to dry. 7. If your lines don’t turn out straight the first time, go over each line again repeating steps 2-5. Then proceed to step 6.
