Since 1 month I started doing 15-20 mins of aerobics. But no use. At the same time I am eating which I guess is a low calories food. I am a pure vegetarian. So I do eat a lot of veggies, fruits. But I am not sure whether eating biscuits, brown bread is good,though. I eat a biscuits with tea & bread sometimes as Break fast. I am really worried DR. please help me out in solving out.

A:You have asked questions about weight gain and pregnancy. Weight gain in general is the result of imbalance between calories in versus calories out. There is also the genetic component to weight loss. If you have an obese family, you are more likely to struggle with weight. Some general things to do:Dont worry about low calorie foods. One tends to eat larger quantities oflow calorie food, which eventually add up to a lot of total calories. Any extra calories are stored as fat regardless of source. That said, fats are calorie dense, so avoid these. Pay attention to the sensation of satiety. At the first sensation of fullness, stop eating. Dont feel obligated to finish the plate. Take asmall plate and do not go for seconds. Eat a piece of fruit/an ounce of nuts between meals. Drink at least 6-8 eight ounces glasses of water a day. These are all the things you can do with eating.The second component is exercise. You are doing well by doing aerobics. You can do the same exercises two to three times a day, or increase the exercise gradually to 45 minutes a day. The exercise should be intense enough to increase your heart rate to about 80 percent of predicted for your age.(there are age based charts available in exercise books). Rapid weight gain can interfere with regular cycles. You are right aboutbeing concerned with your weight at a your age. If you are trying to get pregnant, and have still not had your period, thentry the home pregnancy test or see you gynaecologist. I would not get concerned about not getting pregnant unless you have tried for 1 year without any results. All the best.
