Diet Can Help Damage Done by Smoking

According to the Indian Council of Medical Research, in India, over 6, 00,000 men in the age group of 25-69 die due to smoking every year. Quitting is the only solution to stop further damage to the body.

Most smokers have heard that quitting can make them put on weight - this is true as smoking tends to increase the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and hence the body tends to use up more calories. This should not be held as a reason for not quitting as the dangers of smoking are far worse than putting on a little weight (which can easily avoided by sticking to a balanced diet and exercising regularly).

Here is a sample diet that is high in antioxidants that may help in reducing the damage done to the body:

Early Morning: Water + Walnuts
 
Breakfast: Poha (with vegetables) + Papaya
 
Mid-morning: Green Tea + Orange
 
Lunch: Phulka (no ghee/oil) Or Brown rice along with beetroot sabzi and dal, palak mixed veg salad (no salad dressing), curd/ yogurt (fat-free). A cup of watermelon for dessert
 
Evening: Tea/ Coffee + Fruit Chaat
 
Dinner: Dalia Khichdi (with mixed vegetables) and kadhi with beans subzi along with carrot salad. Have cherries or strawberries for dessert.

Quitting smoking is hard work but it can be done. Millions of people just like you have become and are still former smokers!

Ravi says :

Okay. Now i am a chain smoker. So long as I eat like you said and smoke, my chances of cancer and risks are reduced?

 

Sweta Uchil says :

Hi Ravi,
You are missing the point. You HAVE TO QUIT smoking first! Following an antioxidant rich diet after that may help reducing the damage done, but we don't exactly know to what extent.

Wishing you Good Health and a Good Life!

Skype is a great way to expand one's maerkt. For instance, in New Zealand the maerkt is relatively small, but there are people wanting effective lifetime health programs around the world! And I can still guide them through tools like breathing and meditation.GeraldAuckland, New Zealand

Again this is all palaver. Proteins are used by ALL cells to rbleiud the cell, in the event there isnt enough then the body will break down muscle. Muscle only shrinks (atrophy) from lack of exercise. You need 1-1.5 grams of protein per lean weight per day, thats 100 grams at most for all of you per day. Anything less and your muscles will simply shrink, and your metabolism will decrease. You do not NEED carbohydrates AT ALL, your brain can use ketones just fine. http://hgnlsk.com [url=http://sjtgtf.com]sjtgtf[/url] [link=http://diyxoxjahju.com]diyxoxjahju[/link]

The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doenst disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I do know it was my choice to learn, but I actually thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you could possibly repair when you werent too busy searching for attention.

 

Sasas says :

has anyone else ncoited that even though low-carb diets (i.e. eating good carbs in fruits and veggies, etc.) are what really show results, the bottom of the food pyramid is all carbs (i.e. 6-11 servings PER DAY of it)? that's why i don't listen to mainstream sources anymore. http://bxfdnyfms.com [url=http://vpcgbf.com]vpcgbf[/url] [link=http://gmntztk.com]gmntztk[/link]
