Never Hasten to loose weight post Pregnancy says Doctor

Never Hasten to loose weight post Pregnancy say Doctors.

Regular crunches, low-impact exercises and small but frequent meals a day can help new moms get back in shape. But stay away from dieting.

Gynaecologist Archana Dhawan says it is unfair to compare Aishwarya’s frame with those of Hollywood’s yummy mummies as the body structure of each person varies.

“People have their own pace to lose weight, or they would have their own targets. Some can lose in six months whereas others take more than a year. As long as you are making a constant effort and you are feeding the baby regularly and doing exercise, you can lose weight,” Dhawan, from the capital’s The Nurture Clinic, told IANS.

“Whether it’s Aishwarya or any normal adult, everybody has a right to decide at what speed they want to lose weight. As long as you are losing it, good enough. As per geographical distribution, the body frame also varies across the world,” she said.

A proper exercise regimen is of utmost importance, says Amrapali Patil, CEO of Trim N Tone The Obesity Clinic.

“Exercising after pregnancy helps to lose those extra pounds put on during pregnancy, alleviate postpartum depression. Unlike dieting, it doesn’t interfere with your breastfeeding,” she said.

Experts suggest yoga, indoor exercises and regular crunches to shed extra flab.

It is important to consult a physician before commencing any exercise programme as the post-pregnancy period is a delicate state.

“Till six months, when women are breastfeeding, they should take high calorie diet. But after those six months, one should maintain a low calorie and low carbohydrate diet,” said nutritionist Rekha Gonsalves.

Since dieting can create a problem for mothers and indirectly to the newborn, regular exercise is the safest way out.

New mothers are advised exercise only after a certain period.

“Weight loss of about half a kg a week is safe and won’t affect the milk supply if a woman is breastfeeding. It is safer to consult a physician to understand if one is ready for exercise. Also, it is safer to lose weight slowly. One should avoid a strict, restrictive diet,” Gonsalves said.

“One should wait at least six weeks after a vaginal delivery of baby and eight weeks after a caesarean section to start exercising. It’s best to start with low-impact exercises such as yoga, walking or swimming,” she says.

For many women, pregnancy causes permanent mental and physical changes.

Patil warns that “rapid weight loss can release toxins that are stored in the body fat into the bloodstream and in the breastfeeding mother’s milk supply.”

“Starting a diet too soon after giving birth can delay recovery and make one feel more tired, irritated and depressed. Losing weight too quickly can affect lactation and reduce the breast milk,” she says.

In terms of dieting, saturated and transfats should be avoided.

“The oils to avoid are saturated and transfats as these can contribute to heart disease and also diabetes. Saturated fats are found in meats and dairy products, and transfats are typically found in many fried foods, snack foods, and baked goods,” Patil says.

Small and frequent meals, with a lot of fluid and fibre in the diet, can do wonders.

“Consuming low-fat milk, dairy products, wheat bread and whole grain cereal can help you lose weight,” said Indu Bala Khatri, a consultant at Moolchand Women’s Hospital.

P Sangma says that he would contest as a President

Posted: 15 Jun 2012 04:51 AM PDT

P A SangmaFormer Lok Sabha speaker P.A. Sangma Friday said that he will contest the presidential elections and had got support from many political parties.

“I will be contesting. As of now I am a candidate sponsored by two chief ministers and I am still in the race,” the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader told CNN-IBN. Interestingly, the NCP, a part of the ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA), has not backed Sangma.

Asked whether he would withdraw his candidature if NCP chief Sharad Pawar asked him to, Sangma said: “No… I have committed to people supporting me.”

Discussing the Trinamool Congress and the Samajwadi Party (SP) naming Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as a presidential candidate, Sangma said: “It is an internal matter of the UPA and I don’t want to comment… I am not part of UPA. I am an MLA in Meghlaya where NCP is in opposition.”

Sangma said he has the support of several political parties.

“Political parties supporting me will declare their support after UPA finalises its candidate,” he added.

The Numbers which would decide next President of India

Posted: 15 Jun 2012 04:14 AM PDT

India’s electoral college that will vote for a new president July 19 is made up of 4,896 members – 776 members of parliament and 4,120 members of the state assemblies. Between them they have 10,97,012 votes and the winning candidate needs at least 50 percent of these.

How do numbers stack up?

* The ruling United Progressive Alliance, in its present form, has 450,555 votes or 41.07 percent of the total. Of this, the Congress alone has 331,855 votes, or 30.3 percent of the total.

* The allies – among them the Trinamool Congress and the DMK – have 11.04 percent of the vote.

* The Samajwadi Party, which supports the government from outside, has 6.34 percent of the vote.

* The Trinamool Congress has 4.40 percent of the vote.

* If the Trinamool and the Samajwadi Party vote with the government, this will give it 47.41 percent of the ballots – a shortfall of a mere 2.59 percent.

* Should these two parties not vote with the government, it will be short by 13.33 percent.

* The National Democratic Alliance has 27.7 percent of the votes, of which the Bharatiya Janata Party has 21.2 percent.

* The Left has 4.7 percent of the vote.

* Among the other parties, the BSP has 3.98 percent of the votes and the AIADMK 3.3 percent.

* In the “others” category are 10.1 percent of the votes.

To calculate the number of voters each legislator represents, the total population of the state is divided by the number of legislatures and then divided by 1,000.

For example, each member of Uttar Pradesh assembly represents 208 voters, while an a member from Sikkim represents seven voters.

The value of vote of each MP is uniform at 708.

Why Mamta Banerjee is so opposed to Pranab as President?

Posted: 15 Jun 2012 03:20 AM PDT

Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee have never quite gelled, despite their apparent show of bonhomie from time to time.

The former has the image of a shrewd and seasoned administrator – comfortable both in diplomatic debates and calculative political dialogues to defuse crises. The other is instinctive and unpredictable, often seeming to lack in sophistication, and more adept in aggressive political fights and pressure games.

The two are as different as chalk and cheese.

So when Banerjee, the Trinamool Congress chief, went all out to nix Mukherjee’s chances of making it to Raisina Hill, it did not come as a surprise to political leaders who have been witness to the ebb and tide of relations between the two.

A front-ranking state Congress leader described as “rank jealousy” Banerjee’s animosity to Mukherjee becoming president. “She wants to carve out a niche for herself as a Bengali. She thinks she is the only sun in West Bengal, and does not want anyone to occupy any important slot from the state. She thinks she will be eclipsed. It is her mindset which is at play,” said Congress MP Adhir Chowdhury.

Another state Congress leader Om Prakash Mishra pointed out that it was Pranab Mukherjee who ensured Banerjee got the Congress ticket to contest her maiden Lok Sacha election from the Jadavpur constituency in 1984. “At that time, she was a Subrata Mukherjee loyalist. And Pranabda was Subrata’s mentor.”

“In later years also, he has been very accommodative of Banerjee. Both in 2001 and 2009, when Banerjee’s Trinamool aligned with the Congress, it was Mukherjee who accommodated her hugely by giving a large chunk of seats,” he said.

However, a Trinamool Congress leader claimed that it was Mukherjee who has always been “extremely jealous” of Banerjee’s mass appeal. “Mukherjee maybe a statesman, but he has never been a mass leader. In fact he won his first direct election from Jangipur Lok Sabha seat in Murshidabad district only eight years back, after having spent nearly four decades in politics.

“He has never had any base of his own in the state, unlike Banerjee who has always had a huge mass following. Mukherjee has never taken this in the right spirit,” he said.

The Trinamool leader claimed Mukherjee had indulged in “unsuccessful backbiting” and backroom manoeuvres in the 1990s to prevent Banerjee’s annointment as a central government minister during P.V. Narasimha Rao’s prime ministerial stint.

“Again he never helped out Banerjee when she was constantly pushed to the wall in the Congress. At last, Banerjee had to form her own party,” he said.

The Trinamool leader said Banerjee “strongly felt” that during her one year as state chief minister she never got any backing from Mukherjee, who was in charge of the union finance ministry.

“She has inherited a debt-ridden state. Before the assembly election last year, even Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had promised that the central government will go the extra mile if a Trinamool-Congress government was formed.

“But after the election, no central help has been forthcoming. Mukherjee has constantly delayed any concrete action by having recourse to an endless sequence of meetings. And there is now very little money in the state coffers to carry out development,’ he said.

Anti-Inflation Measure would hamper growth says RBI Governor

Posted: 15 Jun 2012 01:38 AM PDT

Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor D. Subbarao has said  that inflation can’t be controlled without sacrificing some growth.
Delivering the Obayya memorial lecture here, he said that a short-term sacrifice of growth was a small price to pay for bringing down inflation so that in the medium term, the growth is secured.

“You cannot control inflation without sacrificing some growth. After all, you have to contain demand. When you contain demand, growth comes down. So there is no way of bringing down inflation without sacrificing some growth,” he said.

The remark came on a day when May inflation rose to 7.55 per cent from 7.23 per cent in the previous month. With growth in factory output slowing down sharply to 0.1 per cent in April, industry has been demanding a cut in key policy rate (repo rate) to bring down cost of borrowings

Subbarao did not believe that India is heading for 1991-like crisis. “It is highly improbable that we will have 1991-type crisis because today we have different set of economy,” he said.

He said while fiscal deficit was as high as it was in 1991 while the current account deficit was going to be higher than that of 1991, the twin deficits would not lead to that situation. He pointed out that rupee was over valued in 1991.

“Today exchange rate is market determined which is a great strength, the country has $285 billion foreign exchange reserves,? he said.

The RBI governor said the while India today has $2 trillion dollar economy, it was only $200 billion in 1991. “Financial markets are resilient, robust and more sophisticated while in 1991, we had no financial markets to speak of.”

He, however, clarified that he was not saying that there were no problems.

“There is nothing inevitable about Indian growth story. It is a great story. It is a credible story. The fundamentals of Indian economy are still strong but at the same time it is not inevitable. There is no god given law that India has to grow at 10 percent or 12 percent. It is the responsibility of not just RBI and the government but it is the responsibility of every one concerned,” he said.

Experts opined that now with inflation shooting up, the central bank would have a tough job in balancing growth and inflation in its monetary policy review on June 18. RBI had cut key lending rate by 50 basis points to 8 per cent after consecutively raising it 13 times since March 2010 in its bid to tame inflation.

Also since January, the RBI has resorted to injecting liquidity into the financial system, by reducing Cash Reserve Ratio for banks. Besides, it has called for fiscal steps by the government to combat inflation. RBI has projected inflation to be around 6.5 per cent by March 2013, with a caution that it would remain sticky and there is a need to arrest the decline in economic growth.

Mamta Banerjee congratulates Dr Kalam for his 2nd term in advance

Posted: 15 Jun 2012 12:41 AM PDT

Dr Kalam in BiharMamta Banerjee has congratulated Dr Kalam for his 2nd term as President in advance. Stating that the Samajwadi Party (SP) was with her, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee Friday said former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam would contest the presidential elections and sent “advance congratulations” to him for a second tenure in office.

Addressing reporters before leaving for Kolkata, a confident Banerjee said Kalam was a candidate for both the SP and the Trinamool. “Mulayam and we are together,” she said.

“I stayed in Delhi for two days and after the announcement of our candidates, me and Mulayam Singh-ji waited for 24 hours… but Congress rejected our candidates. Other political parties have not yet responded but whatever response we got it is in favour of Kalam-ji,” Banerjee said.

“Kalam-ji will be contesting the elections… our advance congratulations to Kalam-ji.”

“He is an asset to the country. He is a man who can glorify India like anything … he is a popular figure in the world and if there is presidential elections directly like America, he would probably be the number one… nobody would contest against him,” she said.

The Trinamool chief appealed to all political parties to support Kalam.

“I call upon all political parties. There is no ego and no fight… the president’s post is very important… Let’s ask all to support Abdul Kalam,” she said.

Kalam has not yet committed himself and said he would take the proper decision at the right time.

The SP and the Trinamool Congress had Wednesday named Kalam as one of their three preferred candidates for president. On Thursday, Banerjee said Kalam was their number one choice and reiterated it after a meeting with SP leader Mulayam Singh Yadav.
