  1. 1. WOMEN’S HEALTH - Winter Special Neha Gupta Eat Your way To Health…..
  2. 2. Your Health concerns……..
  3. 3. 1. Inactivity leading to weight gain Even if I keep my diet same, why do I tend to put on weight in winters? • Due to less activity we burn less calories leading to weight gain. • The body tends to store more fat in winters. • Exercise boosts up serotonin levels (mood changing hormone) in our body. Therefore lesser activity suppresses its levels in the body due to which mood fluctuations may occur. To counteract this change in mood we may resort to eating too many carbohydrates (which tend to lift our mood) and thus expand our waistline gradually. • Bottom line - Make an effort to stay active during the winters.
  4. 4. 2. Frequent infections The chill of cold weather drives people indoors, increasing person to person contact in close quarters, which readily spreads nasty viruses. Frigid temperatures also encourage people to become less active, since they are able to perform fewer activities outside. These factors weaken the immune system, making the body more susceptible to illnesses. A normal Indian vegetarian diet lacks antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids and minerals like zinc. Bottom line: Keep yourself energized and resistant to those winter bugs by staying active and following a healthy diet
  5. 5. Winter is a season of festivals, marriages, partying out. Unhealthy diet - Tempting treats, irregular routines, foods high in fats are the ones to blame. Apart from adding inches to you waistline, it also brings digestive problems like acidity, heart burn, flatulence, bloating. Bottom line- Go easy on fatty foods and desserts
  6. 6. Dry air Long, hot showers and baths Use of hard soaps Heavy clothing Use of room heaters All these factors leave your skin dry and cracked Bottom line: Give your skin a good dose of vitamin E, vitamin C and proteins.
  7. 7. 5. Dry & Brittle Hair Cold air in winters removes moisture from scalp leaving your hair dry, frizzy and brittle. Good nutrition and proper hydration is the key to healthy hair. Diet low in proteins can cause thinning and an unhealthy look. Hair also needs B vitamins, essential fatty acids and minerals like magnesium, sulphur and zinc Hair helpers – beans, whole grains and pulses, eggs, flaxseeds, dark greens, soybeans Bottom line: Have plenty of proteins, vitamins and minerals for beautiful hair.

Substitute them with green tea, fresh homemade soups. 6. Take a sunbath – 15- 20 minutes everyday for your dose of Vitamin D.
