12 Indian foods that cut fat

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

You don't have to acquire a taste for olive oil, seaweed or soya to maintain a low-fat, healthy diet. Indian cuisine can be healthy too, if it's cooked with oil and ingredients that take care of your heart and health.

Ayurveda suggests you include all tastes - sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent - in at least one meal each day, to help balance unnatural cravings. Here are 12 foods that can help you lose weight and gain health:

Turmeric : Curcumin, the active component of turmeric, is an object of research owing to its properties that suggest they may help to turn off certain genes that cause scarring and enlargement of the heart. Regular intake may help reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol and high blood pressure, increase blood circulation and prevent blood clotting, helping to prevent heart attack.

Cardamom : This is a thermogenic herb that increases metabolism and helps burn body fat. Cardamom is considered one of the best digestive aids and is believed to soothe the digestive system and help the body process other foods more efficiently.

Chillies : Foods containing chillies are said to be as foods that burn fat. Chillies contain capsaicin that helps in increasing the metabolism. Capsaicin is a thermogenic food, so it causes the body to burn calories for 20 minutes after you eat the chillies.

Curry leaves : Incorporating curry leaves into your daily diet can help you lose weight. These leaves flush out fat and toxins, reducing fat deposits that are stored in the body, as well as reducing bad cholesterol levels. If you are overweight, incorporate eight to 10 curry leaves into your diet daily. Chop them finely and mix them into a drink, or sprinkle them over a meal.

Garlic : An effective fat-burning food, garlic contains the sulphur compound allicin which has anti-bacterial effects and helps reduce cholesterol and unhealthy fats.

Mustard oil : This has low saturated fat compared to other cooking oils. It has fatty acid, oleic acid, erucic acid and linoleic acid. It contains antioxidants, essential vitamins and reduces cholesterol, which is good for the heart.

Cabbage : Raw or cooked cabbage inhibits the conversion of sugar and other carbohydrates into fat. Hence, it is of great value in weight reduction.

Moong dal : The bean sprouts are rich in Vitamin A, B, C and E and many minerals, such as calcium, iron and potassium. It is recommended as a food replacement in many slimming programmes, as it has a very low fat content. It is a rich source of protein and fibre, which helps lower blood cholesterol level. The high fibre content yields complex carbohydrates, which aid digestion, are effective in stabilising blood sugar and prevent its rapid rise after meal consumption.

Honey : It is a home remedy for obesity. It mobilises the extra fat deposits in the body allowing it to be utilised as energy for normal functions. One should start with about 10 grams or a tablespoon, taken with hot water early in the morning.

Buttermilk : It is the somewhat sour, residual fluid that is left after butter is churned. The probiotic food contains just 2.2 grams of fat and about 99 calories, as compared to whole milk that contains 8.9 grams fat and 157 calories. Regular intake provides the body with all essential nutrients and does not add fats and calories to the body. It is thus helpful in weight loss.

Millets : Fibre-rich foods such as millets - jowar, bajra, ragi, etc - absorb cholesterol and help increase the secretion of the bile that emulsifies fats.
Cinnamon and cloves: Used extensively in Indian cooking, the spices have been found to improve the function of insulin and to lower glucose, total cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides in people with type 2 diabetes.

On the Walk of Life

Friday, January 27, 2012

Sometimes we feel half lost, alone and feel the need to seek new ways for our lives ...

Along this path, we found many stones that stoned become a precious jewel: the experience!

Find younger people ... And with them relearn the lost innocence ...

We will find older people ... And they learn to be mature ...

We learn that fire burns also warms the cold nights ...

At some point our journey will be interrupted and will learn that it was only a pause for the rest of the soul ..

Sometimes we think we lost some people, but after they realized is that we lost.

Feel fear and loneliness, but we always find a helping hand of Him who was crucified for us ...

And if we think the walk is too long, we are assured of always warm embrace of those who would also give his life for us: our parents.

At the end of this great journey called life, I realized what really matters are those things that we carry in our hearts.

So, keep only the good feelings. Thus we arrive with a light heart and suitcase full of good memories.

Begin your day with oats

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Everybody needs to be health conscious today, because most of us face health risks due to various reasons like bad food habits, lack of exercise, stress, obesity, drinking alcohol , smoking, etc.

Being healthy begins by eating healthy. Most of us begin our day by having breakfast that is high in fat and calories, for eg. butter jam toast, cheese sandwiches, omelettes, sheera, vadas, dosas, etc. which is bad for the heart. You need to begin your day with a non-oily nutritious breakfast, for example, having oats. It's quick and easy to prepare, so you can't complain about not having the time to prepare breakfast. Here are some of the benefits of oats:

- Oats contain soluble fibre called beta glucan, which is known to help in reducing cholesterol by the blocking of re-absorption of cholesterol when it passes through the digestive system. Regularly having oats lowers the cholesterol levels in the body.

- Oats contains low levels of sodium. This reduces the risk of contracting high blood pressure and hypertension.

- The soluble fibre present in oats tends to slow down the digestion of carbohydrates, thereby reducing the spikes in the blood sugar levels, which in turn do not lead to unwanted urges to eat.

- Eating oats leaves one much fuller, therefore you tend to eat less. This is especially good for those trying to lose weight.

- Oats contains very less amount of fat and lesser calories. This makes it good for overall health.

- Being a good source of natural dietary fibre, oats are beneficial in curbing the problem of constipation.

- Oats are also known to contain compounds called phytochemicals that can reduce one's risk of cancer.

Lemon is 10,000 Times Stronger than Chemotherapy...

Monday, January 16, 2012

Just cut 2-3 thin slices of lemon in a cup/container and add drinking water will become "alkaline water", drink for the whole day, just by adding drinking water. Take it as drinking water everyday is good for everybody.


The surprising benefits of lemon!
I remain perplexed!


Institute of Health Sciences, 819 N. L.L.C. Charles Street Baltimore , MD 1201.

This is the latest in medicine, effective for cancer!
Read carefully & you be the judge

(Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by
letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. 

How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations? As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... 

It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.

The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that

 It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers
including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas ... The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

Breathing Therapy

Monday, January 9, 2012


                                 The nose has a left and a right side;
 we use both to inhale and exhale.
Actually they are different; you would be
 able to feel the difference.
The right side represents the sun
left side represents the moon.
During a headache, try to close your
right nose and use your left nose
to breathe.
In about 5 Mins, your headache will go?
If you feel tired, just reverse,
close your left nose and breathe through
 your right nose.
After a while, you will feel your
 mind is refreshed.
Right side belongs to 'hot', so it gets
 heated up easily, left side belongs
to 'cold'.
Most females breathe with their
left noses, so they get "cooled off"
Most of the guys breathe with their

 right noses, they get worked up.
.coDo you notice the moment we wake up,
 which side breathes faster?
 Left or right? ?
If left is faster, you will feel tired.
So, close your left nose and use your
 right nose for breathing, you will
get refreshed quickly.
This can be taught to kids, but
it is more effective when practiced
 by adults.
My friend used to have bad headaches
 and was always visiting the doctor.
There was this period when he suffered headache
 literally every night, unable to study.

He took painkillers, did not work.
He decided to try out the breathing
therapy here: closed his right nose and
breathed through his left nose.
In less than a week, his headaches
 were gone!
 He continued the exercise for
 one month.
This alternative natural therapy
without medication is something that
 he has experienced.
So, why not give it a try?
You will get rid of it every time it comes

10 Days Old Dolphin Rescued

A baby dolphin is lowered into a swimming pool just hours after being rescued. The mammal was discovered by walkers on a beach near the Uruguayan capital, Montevideo. It was suffering from injuries believed to have been caused by a fishing net.There was no sign of its mother. The dolphin is only about ten days old.Richard Tesore, head of the NGO Rescate Fauna Marina, has been caring for tiny animal in Piriapolis, 62 miles east of the capital, Montevideo.And while his cute charge is a hit with visitors, it seems they must queue behind a penguin if they want to see him. The Magellan penguin is also being looked after at the centre and has taken an interest in the new patient. The natural survival rate for dolphins within their first year of life in the wild is 20 per cent. The death toll of captive born dolphins is much higher. According to the US Marine Mammal Inventory Report did between 1960 and 1993 more than 50 per cent of the dolphins born in captivity within the first four months of life.

Alien Baby Found in Mexico

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

In late 2009, scientists had their brains stormed in a case that left the world stunned. A carcass of what is claimed to be a baby alien was handed over to them by a Mexican farmer, Marao Lopez who captured the creature alive in 2007. He found the alien caught in an animal trap. He got so scared by the look of the miniature beast that he tried to kill it by drowning it under water in a ditch. But it took him three attempts and few hours before he could finally kill it. He had to hold it for several hours under water before it died.

Scientists had carried out DNA scan and other tests on the creature and the results had left everyone dumbstruck with awe. Tests revealed a creature unknown to mankind. It has skeleton that looks similar to a lizard, its teeth do not have any roots like that of humans and it can hold its breath and stay underwater for a long time. The bulged rear part of the brain meant that it must have been intelligent.

But the interesting part of the story is that the farmer who had killed the baby alien had mysteriously died. He was burnt to death in his car at the side of a road. UFO expert Joshua P. Warren says that the temperature at which the car burnt was higher than normal fire. This led to rumors that the farmer was killed by the guardians of the so-called baby alien seeking revenge. UFO expert Jaime Maussan believes that the story is not a hoax. Farmers had found another similar creature but it ran away when they approached.

There are frequent UFO sightings and reports of mysteriously appearing crop circles in the area where the creature was found. Although the news was first covered by the Mexican TV channel in 2007, the first pictures and videos of the sinister looking creature were published by the website www.bild.de
Others believe that the story is a complete hoax. The creature is no-alien but an under-developed baby monkey. There are similar creatures that look like alien but were later identified.

The fearless creature can be a monkey fetus or a baby that had been first skinned off it’s fur and later “fitted” into the trap in the peculiar position since there is no way a creature that small can get caught in such a huge animal trap in that way.
Believe it or not, the story has got the attention of the whole world!!!
