Childhood obesity is a growing concern today. Obesity rates in the past three decades have tripled. Children are at a significantly higher risk of becoming obese or overweight. Not only does this cause health issues later in their lives but it causes children to live a life that could not be fulfilling.

Every parent is responsible for the future of their children. Be informed about what is happening and provide healthier options to your children. We at club Nutrim are happy to guide many parents through our child nutrition programs, educating them about the healthy food choices they can make and ensure their kids grow to be healthy and active.

An amazing weight loss success story in his own words…

“Hi, my name is Yogesh Sawant. I’m happy to share my weight loss journey that I followed at Club Nutrim. 5 months ago, I weighed over 97kgs, and even climbing a set of staircase from parking to lift lobby was a challenge for me. Under the guidance of Madhura Shah and Supriya Dhumale, my wellness coaches at the Club, I started my weight loss journey. With an excellent calorie management program and adapting healthy active life style I reduced a phenomenal 21 kgs in just 5 months. No crash dieting, no medicines or rigorous exercise routines, just balanced nutrition was the key to my result. Not only did I lose my excess weight, but my fitness levels have also increased. A person like me who was obese few months back, can now do 100 suryanamaskars in 37 mins. In addition to this I can also run 3 KM in 17 mins flat. This is like a dream come true.

Thanks Nutrim for reshaping my life and confidence.”

Winter is here and so is the cold and flu season. To stay healthy and avoid infections, it is very important to build a strong and balanced immune system. Here are a few tips to keep your immunity strong this winter.

1. Eat Lots Of Colourful Fruits And Vegetables

You need many nutrients, such as vitamins A, C, D and E, as well as minerals selenium and zinc, and Omega 3s, to support your immune system. Eat a  balanced diet with whole foods and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid processed meats, fried foods, soft drinks, or products with artificial sweeteners or refined sugars. Eating too much of them suppresses the immune system.

2. Increase The Intake Of Vitamin C.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are our best sources of vitamin C, which help to strengthen the immune system and keep our body healthy. Great food sources of vitamin C include strawberries, orange, sweetlime, kiwi, bell peppers and dark green vegetables.

3. Drink Lots Of Water Throughout The Day

Water does a lot more than just quench your thirst. Our body is about 70% water and every cell in your body needs this important nutrient. We constantly lose water through breathing, sweating and urination, so we need to drink sufficient water everyday to replenish this supply and maintain good health.

4. Get 7 To 8 Hours Of Sleep A Day.

Fatigue from improper sleep increases the risk of illness. The body rejuvenates and strengthens when it’s at rest. So try to complete sound sleep of 7 to 8 hours a day, and if needed, also take an afternoon nap.

5. Stay Active And Exercise

Exercising is not only a great way to lose weight but it also increases our immune function, improves sleep quality, and makes our body stronger. If you do not have any health conditions that prevent you from exercising, find the time to workout, even if it’s only a long walk!

So remember 80% nutrition and 20% exercise is the key to good health.

Healthily eating and regular exercise greatly reduces your risk of developing the signs of diabetes, regardless of the diabetes types in question. The symptoms of diabetes are always improved through consumption of nutritious, water-rich food and daily physical activity.

What Causes Diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus type II is caused by inadequate nutrition, overconsumption of high-fat foods, lacking exercise standards and a basic misrepresentation of health over years. Diabetes type 2 does not just happen overnight. In most instances, diabetes mellitus type 2 and gestational diabetes are the results of year after year of self-neglect. The facts are that we eat terribly-inefficient foods and we have become a physically inactive society. In fact, over one-quarter of all Americans are labeled as completely sedentary.

What Are The Signs Of Diabetes?

The signs or symptoms of diabetes are as follows:

  • Being constantly thirsty;
  • Having to urinate far too often;
  • Never-ending hunger accompanied by unintentional weight loss;
  • Dry skin and/or itchy skin;
  • Tingling extremities;
  • “Velvet-like” skin on your neck or underarms;
  • Weakness and becoming easily fatigued;
  • Being grouchy or irritable for no good reasons;
  • Having difficulties waking from sleep;
  • Bedwetting;
  • Headaches;
  • Nausea and/or vomiting;
  • Blurry vision;
  • Inability to focus mentally;
  • More…

If you ignore the signs of diabetes for long enough and actually develop Type 2 diabetes mellitus, then you are going to need to seek medical assistance and drastically change your lifestyle. It is far better to manage the symptoms of diabetes before you ever have to. Remember that the things that are the causes of diabetes are the same as what you need to reverse the symptoms of diabetes. They are:

  • A diet that is mainly comprised of water-rich food sources – i.e. plants;
  • Proper eating habits including portion sizes, proper carbohydrate levels and preset eating times;
  • Daily physical activity that gets your heart pumping for at least 20 minutes or so;
  • A stress management program that you employ constantly;
  • Learning to see food as fuel instead of convenient pleasure;

Always remember that the signs of diabetes are able to be spotted, dealt with and reversed – at least in the vast majority of cases. If you feel that you may exhibiting any of the symptoms of diabetes, then schedule a visit with your physician and discuss them with him or her.

Symptoms and signs of diabetes left untreated for extended time periods can lead to:

  • Blindness;
  • Kidney failure;
  • Amputation of extremities;
  • Nerve damage throughout the body;
  • Heart disease;
  • Strokes;
  • Coma;
  • Premature death;

Take the signs of diabetes seriously and deal with them expeditiously. Your health is your own responsibility and only you can know for sure how you are feeling. A water-rich diet and daily exercise are the keys to the prevention of diabetes mellitus Type 2.

Calorie is a unit to measure food energy. Every food item we eat contains calories. Your body uses calories for various functions like breathing, pumping blood , thinking , physical movements you do etc. When the calorie intake is more than the calories expended by the body you tend to put on weight. The unused excess calories are converted into Fat and stored in your body.

Many people are unaware about calorie management and as a result are overweight or obese. This epidemic of obesity can be controlled if each one understands and follows calorie management as a daily disciplne. If you need to know how calorie management works, call us at 8888833348.

Obesity is increasing at an alarming rate in children and adolescents in developing countries like India. It is a general misconception that fat children are healthy, and with age that ‘baby fat’ will go away. But the reality is that 50-70% of obese children will remain as obese adults.

Wrong eating patterns and sedentary lifestyle are the major contributors to the increasing obesity percentage in these kids. Children have a higher nutritional requirement for their growth and development.

As parents we can ensure that our children get essential vitamins and minerals everyday along with good amount of proteins and less fat content in their food. A physically active lifestyle must be encouraged that includes outdoor sports, less time on TV and video games.

Above all, children follow their parents’ lifestyle habits and thus it is very important to lead by example and follow a healthy active lifestyle.

You only need small amounts of fat to be healthy.

Years ago, I had a client who was truly ‘fat phobic’.  If she could detect any trace of fat in her food, she’d reject it.  She’d dissect a piece of roast chicken into tiny pieces, teasing out any specks of fat she could find between the muscle fibers, and she dressed her salads with straight lemon juice – never a drop of oil.  She did this primarily as a weight control strategy – she was a tiny woman and intended to stay that way – but she’d also heard that people need to eat fat.  So she was worried.  Was being this finicky about fat bad for her health? And – more importantly – did she really need fat in her diet at all?
