A woman is the essence of life and an all-enveloping character is played by a woman as she plays the character of a daughter, sister, wife and mother all at a time within a span of few years. Nutrient-rich food provides energy for women’s busy lives and nutrition plays different roles during different stages of a woman’s life. During childhood, foods fuel growth. Through childbearing years, diet plays a role in fertility, a healthy pregnancy and prevention of chronic disease. In older years, what women eat can help keep minds sharp and bodies strong.

With today’s busy lifestyles, finding time to visit the doctor can often be difficult but it is important not to forget about our health. Regular health check-ups are important for women. Even in the absence of symptoms, many physicians recommend routine, yearly doctor visits and physicals for females of all ages. A full check-up for women includes a comprehensive work-up for general health, including heart diseases, cholesterol, diabetes, major organ functions, osteoporosis and common cancers like liver and colon cancer. Specifically designed for women, the plan also screens for breast, ovarian and cervical cancers as well as pelvic disorders.

  • It triggers your pituitary gland and gives you an adrenaline rush. And, then comes the ‘caffeine crash’, which can make you feel really low.

  • Furthermore, it can leave you sleep-deprived, adding to the woes of mental health.

 

TIP: Go for herbal tea to soothe your body instead of consuming normal tea or coffee

Foods That Affect Our Moods-4

Potato Chips

  • Easy to get and easy to eat.

  • They are fried in saturated oil and contain omega-6 fatty acids

  • Omega -6 lower brain activity by blocking the mood enhancing omega-3 fatty acids and bring in the negative feelings instead.

 

TIP: To calm down that craving to munch something, try almonds or any of your favourite nuts, instead of a pack of potato chips.

 

Foods That Affect Our Moods-3

Chocolates

  • Chocolates (except dark chocolates), give you an instant high because of the sugar rush in your blood.

  • But, as soon as it comes down, you also experience a sharp dip in your mood.

 

TIP: Pick your favourite fruit and eat it to satiate your sweet tooth.

The fibres, pulp and fruit skin ensure that the sugar enter your blood stream gradually, and you do not end up with a low mood.
