The best answer to the very now a days common wheat allergy or the Celiac disease is Gluten free foods. Gluten is a protein found in many cereals like Wheat, Barley,Rye. Grains which are acceptable in a gluten free diet includes millet, quinoa, sorghum, buckwheat. Gram flour (Chickpea flour) ,soybean flour and almond flour are gluten free as well as add protein and fiber to the gluten free diet.
The 5 best Gluten free flour are:
Buckwheat Flour: Called as â€˜Kuttuâ€™ in Hindi. Contrary to the name, buckwheat is completely devoid of wheat. This flour, because of its fiber content and low GI (glycemic index) not only treats Celiac disease but also helpful in conditions like PCOD . Vitamins, Potassium, Magnesium and iron present in buckwheat makes it a perfect alternative to Wheat flour.
Gram Flour: It is derived from Chickpeas. This flour adds proteins to the diet and can be added in wheat flour in different ratios depending upon the degree of gluten intolerance.
Quinoa: Its contains a very good quality protein quite comparable to that of a skimmed milk. Quinoa is high in iron, magnesium, calcium and dietary fiber. It is also available in flakes , pastas form.
Almond Flour: Itâ€™s a low carbohydrate flour with low GI. Because of its nutty flavour, its likability as a flour is very high. Also it contains good quality protein and Omega-3 Fatty acids which are helpful in keeping heart healthy.
Soybean Flour: Because of its highest protein quality in plant sources, soybean flour is the perfect choice when it comes to treating gluten intolerance.
Caffeine & Weight Loss 16 February 2015
I am sure losing weight would definitely be on your new year resolution list. So are you counting calories, working out , or looking for a short cut??
Anyone looking for a shortcut to weight loss might be tempted to try one of many supplements that claim to burn fat and boost metabolism . I have seen many fitness instructors insisting on their clients to have a shot of black coffee several times during the day.
The common & not so exotic ingredient in all of these is Caffeine. Caffeine has a strong reputation as a weight loss aid.
But what actually caffeine do to your system and is there is any supporting , well-designed studies showing caffeine to be any sort of silver bullet against flab?
Although research about the connection between caffeine and weight isnâ€™t definitive, there are several theories about how caffeine might affect weight, including:
1. Caffeine act as a diuretic , which means people taking large doses might shed some weight through water loss, which is quite temporary and certainly not the kind of weight loss most users are looking for.
2. Calorie Burning: Caffeine may stimulate thermogenesis â€” one way your body generates heat and energy from digesting food. But this probably isnâ€™t enough to produce significant weight loss.
3. Appetite Suppression: Caffeine may reduce your desire to eat for a brief time, and actually makes you hog and develop cravings in the later stages of the weight loss program.
Without making other changes to your diet and lifestyle caffeine is unlikely to make a significant difference to your weight. Certainly its not going to be as effective as a 30 min of exercise.
Use this guide for the amounts of caffeine in products:
â€¢ One mug of instant coffee: 100mg
â€¢ One mug of filter coffee: 140mg
â€¢ One mug of tea: 75mg
â€¢ One can of cola: 40mg
â€¢ One can of energy drink: 80mg
â€¢ One 50g bar of plain (dark) chocolate: around 50mg
â€¢ One 50g bar of milk chocolate: around 25mg
Caffeine is found in many beverages, including coffee, tea, energy drinks and colas; in products containing cocoa or chocolate; and in a variety of medications and dietary supplements, including supplements aimed at weight loss.
Also, too much caffeine can cause jitteriness, anxiety, spikes in blood pressure and rapid heartbeats in some people. So restrict yourself to not more than one cup of coffee a day.
