    Do you want a six pack :}{}{}: or do you just want to get in shape?
    Well, you've come to the right place!

    They say abs are made in the kitchen. :)
    ...
    They also say shape is made in the kichen.:rofl!!:
    No, but having a nutritional diet is a great way to get into shape, along with some good ol' exercise.

    I propose we split the Topic into various areas concerning diet:

    • Diets Containing Meat and Health
    • Ovo-Lactose Diets and Health (Milk and Eggs)
    • Vegetarian (No Eggs) Diets and Health
    • Vegan Diets and Health
    • Supplements
    Lets kick off with the essential for maintaining a good body. What are they? For example Proteins (Amino's - Types), Carbohydrates, Sugars.

    List of essential nutrients


    See also: dietary minerals
    The body's requirements vary widely. At one extreme a 70 kg human contains 1.0 kg of calcium but only 3 mg of cobalt.[10]

    Sugars are cabohydrates lol
    Monosaccharides are the major source of fuel for metabolism, being used both as an energy source (glucose being the most important in nature) and in biosynthesis. When monosaccharides are not immediately needed by many cells they are often converted to mosre space efficient forms, often polysaccharides. In many animals, including humans, this form is glycerol, expecially in liver nad muscle cells.


    Proteins:
    Most microorganisms and plants can biosynthesize all 20 standard amino acids, while animals, (including humans) must obtain some of the amino acids from the diet.[14] Key enzymes in the biosynthetic pathways that synthesize certain amino acids - such as aspartokinase, which catalyzes the first step in the synthesis of lysine, methionine, and threonine from aspartate - are not present in animals. The amino acids that an organism cannot synthesize on its own are referred to as essential amino acids. If amino acids are present in the environment, microorganisms can conserve energy by taking up the amino acids from their surroundings and downregulating their biosynthetic pathways.
    In animals, amino acids are obtained through the consumption of foods containing protein. Ingested proteins are broken down through digestion, which typically involves denaturation of the protein through exposure to acid and hydrolysis by enzymes called proteases. Some ingested amino acids are used for protein biosynthesis, while others are converted to glucose through gluconeogenesis, or fed into the citric acid cycle. This use of protein as a fuel is particularly important under starvation conditions as it allows the body's own proteins to be used to support life, particularly those found in muscle.[24] Amino acids are also an important dietary source of nitrogen.

    Fats
    Vitamins A, D, E, and K are fat-soluble, meaning they can only be digested, absorbed, and transported in conjunction with fats. Fats are also sources of essential fatty acids, an important dietary requirement.
    Fats play a vital role in maintaining healthy skin and hair, insulating body organs against shock, maintaining body temperature, and promoting healthy cell function. They also serve as energy stores for the body. Fats are broken down in the body to release glycerol and free fatty acids. The glycerol can be converted to glucose by the liver and thus used as a source of energy.
    The fat content of a food can be analyzed by extraction. The exact method varies on what type of fat to be analyzed—for example, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are tested quite differently.
    Fat also serves as a useful buffer towards a host of diseases. When a particular substance, whether chemical or biotic—reaches unsafe levels in the bloodstream, the body can effectively dilute—or at least maintain equilibrium of—the offending substances by storing it in new fat tissue. This helps to protect vital organs, until such time as the offending substances can be metabolized and/or removed from the body by such means as excretion, urination, accidental or intentional bloodletting, sebum excretion, and hair growth.
    While it is nearly impossible to remove fat completely from the diet, it would be unhealthy to do so. Some fatty acids are essential nutrients, meaning that they can't be produced in the body from other compounds and need to be consumed in small amounts. All other fats required by the body are non-essential and can be produced in the body from other compounds.


    Vitamins

    Vitamins are essential for the normal growth and development of a multicellular organism. Using the genetic blueprint inherited from its parents, a fetus begins to develop, at the moment of conception, from the nutrients it absorbs. It requires certain vitamins and minerals to be present at certain times. These nutrients facilitate the chemical reactions that produce among other things, skin, bone, and muscle. If there is serious deficiency in one or more of these nutrients, a child may develop a deficiency disease. Even minor deficiencies may cause permanent damage.[25]
    For the most part, vitamins are obtained with food, but a few are obtained by other means. For example, microorganisms in the intestine—commonly known as "gut flora"—produce vitamin K and biotin, while one form of vitamin D is synthesized in the skin with the help of natural ultraviolet in sunlight. Humans can produce some vitamins from precursors they consume. Examples include vitamin A, produced from beta carotene, and niacin, from the amino acidtryptophan.[14]
    Once growth and development are completed, vitamins remain essential nutrients for the healthy maintenance of the cells, tissues, and organs that make up a multicellular organism; they also enable a multicellular life form to efficiently use chemical energy provided by food it eats, and to help process the proteins, carbohydrates, and fats required for respiration.


    This is all from wikipedia BTW.

    I'm sorry but that individual is not a Sikh (please I am not being blasphemous here), he is actually a south United Statian and uses steroids. His full biography can be found on bodybuilding.com and his picture has been distributed before.

    I was waiting to see how the thread unfolded. But actually -- I am all for several threads on the above topics and will probably start them myself. And once long ago wanted DrKhalsaji to contribute his medical expertise. But he said he didn't know very much about diet regimens :wink: This thread looks like it is going to be about personal experiences, testimonies, , chap-chat, tips, hints for being in shape based on member experiences, etc.

    Nutrition in Ayurveda

    Sat Nam everybody!

    I´m back from my holidays and have a question about nutrition in ayurveda. I spent one week in a yoga ashram and a doctor who is trained in ayurvedic medicine gave me a dosha diagnosis. I turned out to be pitta in constitution but more kapha in my condition right now. However, I happen to have problems from each side. I read somethings about how to selfheal yourself trough right nutrition, taking in or avoiding certain food according to your dosha.
    In this enquiry I found out that foods that decreas kapha will increase pitta and vice versa. If I should avoid both to get some benefit there isn´t much left to eat for me. :8-:)

    Now my question: Does anyone of you know something more about ayurveda and is able to help me with that?
    Thank you in advance.

    Re: Nutrition in Ayurveda

    Well I read about ayurveda and one thing I learnt is that best thing is just be your own doctor.Try to Eat food that suits you Not the one you read in books.Also Majority of Ayurvedic doctors are Vaishnav hindu's so they mix their vegetarianism with Diet
    and tell you that non veg is posion.That make's ayurvedic theory incomplete because a doctor should be open minded and should not be biased.

    Re: Nutrition in Ayurveda

    svea ji

    A quick answer to your question. I am also kapha/pitta -- with periodic outbreaks of too much pitta. So similar problems as you have. There is a kapha/pitta diet. Let me see if I can root it out.

    You can send a private message to forum member snowleopard ji who has formal training in aryuvedic diet and health. :) Make sure you tell her that I am the one who sent you so she has a context for the question.

    YOu can scroll to page 128 on this link to find out a little about it. The trick is to balance which of the doshas is out of balance. Also there are seasonal aspects to balancing each of the doshas, with different diet regimens.

    The link
    http://books.google.com/books?id=Xs...X&oi=book_result&resnum=4&ct=result#PPA129,M1

    I would like to get a few threads started on this as well because aryuveda is uncanny in its ability to pin-point dietary issues.
