Lets get proteins to your routine!

Out of 20 patients i see in a day, 19 of them are following a proteins deficient diet.

When i say proteins deficient, i literally mean to say ” PROTEINS DEFICIENT”

An average individual requires 0.8 grams per kg body weight protein irrespective of the medical condition.

Please ask your health expert to give you 2018 information on the consumption of proteins.

I have seen this that people stop consuming proteins the moment they find out that uric acid is high.

Its not about restricting proteins, it about the carbohydrates that go up in the diets leading you and drifting you towards insulin resistance.

If i had to talk about insulin resistance, that can take up another book to describe things.

Cutting it short, insulin resistance can lead too diabetes, pcos and all other metabolic disorders.

It is a loop which is interconnected.

Well, the lunch and dinner somehow has dal and curd but the major issue comes up for breakfast.

Typical Indian breakfast consists of upma, poha, paratha, toast on rotation basis which means that somehow the breakfast is not balanced, all it consist of is carbohydrates which further leads to insulin resistance.

This article will give you more information about adding proteins to your breakfast!
