Not getting your daily dose of Vitamin D because you can’t stand the sun’s harsh rays?


 Neesha Bukht shows Kiran Mehta how to make up for it with the right foods

 Vitamin D is perhaps the single most underrated nutrient. That's probably because it's free: your body makes it when sunlight touches your skin. It's essential for bone health because without it, even popping calcium pills won't work — your body needs this vitamin to absorb calcium. Of late, with the increasing use of beauty products with a high sun-protection factor, Vitamin D deficiency is on the rise. In fact, even weak sunscreens (with as little as SPF-8), block your body's ability to generate vitamin D by 95 per cent.
    Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to several diseases like arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and even schizophrenia and certain cancers. If these life-long debilitating conditions aren't scary enough to make you step out, top up on Vitamin D rich foods instead.
Pre-teens and teens:
Forty-five per cent of your skeletal mass is added during puberty and adolescence. So Vitamin D is needed greatly at this stage. Rickets, a condition characterised by soft bones, typically affects children deficient in Vitamin D.
    Start your day with some fortified orange juice (142 IUs per 100 ml glass) or some fresh fruit milkshake (approximately 140 IUs). Paneer

contains (140 IUs per 30 to 40 gm) and yoghurt contains as much Vitamin D as milk — 98 IUs per 100 ml (non-fat fortified milk). Give up those fizzy colas, tea and coffee since caffeine tends to leach calcium from the bones.
In your 20s:
In your 'fast living decade', between hectic work schedules and dating, instead of 'convenient' foods such
as burgers and pizzas, opt for a tuna salad (85 gm tuna contains 200 IUs). Your 20s are the last chance to lay down new bones. Gulp down two large glasses of vitamin D fortified non-fat milk every day (one glass contains 100 IUs). The calcium-Vitamin D combination helps your body to absorb its benefits.
In your 30s :
Thirties might be the new 20s, but not so from your bones' viewpoint. Now you cannot drastically change your skeletal structure, but can definitely maintain it. Just concentrate on not allowing your bone density to drop. Apart from an active lifestyle, have tuna twice a week and mushrooms once a week (85 gm of mushrooms gives 100 per cent Vitamin D). Fortified cereal with whole milk is a good breakfast choice.
In your 40s:
At this stage, several lifestyle diseases rear their ugly heads. By now, you spend several hours indoors either working or caring for your family and probably don't get much sunshine. Make sure you eat dark green leafy vegetables thrice a
    week and foods such as salmon (100
gm contains 360 IUs), mackerel (100 gm ounces contains 345 IUs), sardines (50 gm contains 250 IUs), fortified dairy products and cereals.
50s and up:
The need for Vitamin D increases after 50 and it's difficult to meet them without unrealistic diets. Ask your doctor about supplements. Have a whole egg (20 IUs) thrice a week and fatty fish twice a week.


• Fruits and vegetables are internal sunscreens and can allow you to stay under the sun twice as long without burning. Fruits with this ability include super fruits such as strawberries, pomegranates and kiwis.

• Vitamin D is generated by your kidneys
and liver, so kidney disease or liver damage can greatly impair your body's ability to form the vitamin.

• The healing rays of sunlight cannot penetrate glass, so you don't generate vitamin D when sitting in your car or home.

• Your body can't generate too much Vitamin D from sunlight exposure: it will selfregulate and only generate what it needs.

• If it hurts to press firmly on your sternum, you may be suffering from chronic Vitamin D deficiency right now.

I am a 22-year-old boy and have recently graduated. I am four kilos underweight and am desperately trying to build my body and get in shape. Recently, I enrolled in a gym and started training with light weights, but in vain. Genetically, I have a slim frame and find it difficult to gain weight and build muscle mass. How can I build my body without taking supplements and powders?
    — Meraj

Dear Meraj,
Scientifically speaking, the human body is categorised into three body types: ectomorph, mesomorph and endomorph. Ectomorphs are tall and lean and require more time to build muscle mass; mesomorphs are stocky and have no problem in bulking up; endomorphs are usually overweight and have difficulty reducing weight.
    Though genes do play an important role in determining your body structure, stay focused and put in your best efforts to achieve your goals. As you have dominant ectomorphic characteristics (slim, lightly muscled, a high metabolism) you need to work hard to build muscle mass and definition. Here's what to do:
Weight training or strength exercises play an important role in building muscle. An effective routine targets major muscle groups of the upper, middle and lower body. Adding a cardiovascular exercise routine, such as walking or cycling twice a week, will improve overall fitness.
    Based on your current fitness level and medical history, formulate an exercise program that is structured, challenging and progressive. Here are some ways in which you could vary your strength workout routine to recruit different muscle fibres and increase muscle mass: Exercise selection: Do super-sets for bulk and definition. For example: Bench presses followed by dumbbell flies for the chest muscles or barbell curls followed by dumbbell curls for biceps. To increase intensity, target the same muscles from different angles using a variety of exercises. A set of 8 to 12 repetitions with 70 to 85 per cent of maximum resistance is recommended.
Exercise sequence: While performing a series or circuit of strength exercises, proceed from the larger muscles to the smaller ones. Exercise sets: Do multiple-set strength training or single-set strength training. Exercise progression: The key to strength development is progressive resistance. As muscles adapt to a given resistance, increase resistance to stimulate further strength gains.
The most important aspect of high-volume or high-intensity training is rest, so as to avoid physical burnout. During weight training, muscles need at least 48 hours of rest in between workouts to recover and recuperate.

Nutrition is very important and a healthy diet should include carbohydrates, proteins, fats and plenty of water. Carbohydrates (grains, vegetables, legumes) must make 55-60 per cent of your diet, proteins (milk, eggs, meat, fish, sprouts) 15 per cent and fats (oils, butter) 25-30 per cent. Proteins are essential in repairing tissues, so if you work out regularly, consume 1.2 to 1.5 grams of protein per kilogram of your body weight. Animal sources such as milk, milk products, meats and eggs are complete sources of protein. Vegetable proteins are incomplete and need to be combined with other foods. For example, grains and lentil (dal and rice), nuts or seeds with grains, nuts or seeds with legumes; are excellent vegetarian protein sources.

Several health problems arise during this season. Here are some precautions that you can take to avoid falling prey to these ailments

Dr Parul R Sheth

  Mumbaiites have been looking forward to pre-monsoon showers. A slight dip in the temperature is good news, but the humidity that goes with it is killing. Even after the first few showers, heat and humidity levels rise. And this is precisely what causes health trouble.
    Once monsoon sets in, much care and precaution may be needed to prevent you from an array of health problems. Begin your preparations now to enjoy those wet showers without any worries.
Pre-monsoon woes
Says Mumbai-based family physician Dr Yogesh Shah, "We have been seeing several cases of viral infections, acute
gastroenteritis and Hepatitis A infections this season. Patients come with complaints of weakness, body ache and fever. Contaminated water and food are the main culprits for Hepatitis A and gastroenteritis infection. Symptomatic treatment works and normally, no antibiotics are required, unless secondary infection is present."
Prevention is the best cure
Monsoon is the time when dirty water mixed with sewage and soil can cause infections. Tap water can get contaminated by overflowing ground water. Water-borne diseases or those infections spread by mosquitoes such as dengue,
malaria, chikungunya or the ones spread by flies such as typhoid, in addition to the viral infections such as gastroenteritis and conjunctivitis, are rampant in the city. Precautions are therefore necessary to avoid falling prey to these ailments.
Start acting now
Wipe off the sweat and grime from your face and bathe often to feel cool and fresh. In the monsoon, keep your feet dry. Do not wear wet clothes for long to avoid fungal infections on the skin or nails.
    Drink plenty of potable (boiled or filtered) water.

    Avoid eating roadside foods – cut down on fruits, chaat or pani puris etc, fermented and raw preparations like salads.
    Clean your salads and leafy vegetables under running water. Steaming them is the best way to get rid of germs. Soaking the greens in salt water for about 10 minutes can help remove insects. Avoid eating stale food.
    Clean chopping boards and dust cloths well before use. Wash your hands before handling food, after eating food, after visiting the toilet. Maintain good personal hygiene.
    Use insect repellents, use disinfectants and take precautions to stay away from mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches, termites etc. Use dried neem leaves, camphor, or cloves.
    Carry out thorough pre-monsoon checks for any water leakages from faulty plumbing, electrical switches and clogged drains to avoid mishaps.
