How to lose weight with Bottle Gourd

Bottle Gourd

Bottle Gourd juice

Bottle gourd is one famous vegetable in the news for various reasons. Bottle gourd has gained importance for weight loss. So lets see how it can trigger weight loss.

  • It is rich in fiber and water and hence helps to curb hunger pangs. If you take the juice in the morning, you are having a fiber rich start, hence you are not ravenous for breakfast and do not overeat at breakfast.
  • Its   juice can work as a wonderful snack replacement. A glass of this juice and a bowl of fruits can be an ideal afternoon snack whenever you feel hungry.

It should not be strained with a sieve as the fiber is the key to weight loss. Just drinking bottle gourd juice will not melt your fat away. It has to be combined with a low calorie diet and adequate exercise.

    Hi Darshan,

    bottle gourd does not have any effect on the eyes…

  2. Darshan March 4, 2011 at 11:20 am #

    HI DR Sanjana,

    Thanks for ur prompt reply.
    Actually my dry eyes condition are too much worse,my TBUT is 4 in both eyes.
    Is there anything that could reverse the toxic effects of Bottle gourd if any …or would it be again automatically return to normal after some days? i am also getting eye pains.

    Also i would like to ask regarding “GOJI(lycium)” berries to heal dry eyes. I am already taking Flax seeds currently.

    The artificial tears dont work for me. Its also becoming difficult to work on computers and in ACs. I dont want to loose my job by any means.

    What are some healthy foods you can eat a lot of without gaining weight? Is it true that you can eat as many green vegetables as you want?

    You desire to lose 10 kgs of your body weight is appreciated, but you have not given your present body weight and your height. . Drinking louki juice alone will not help.

    Make a sincere effort to lose weight via exercise and healthy eating. You should not starve yourself. But eat in small quantities at frequent intervals. Also remember the importance of a healthy option –if you feel hungry between meals ,it is for you to decide whether it is time for an apple or even a small gulab jamun. Minimise your intake of sugar,salt, oil etc.

    As stated earlier, exercise is a must. If you cannot go to a gym and do exercise, walking for one hour daily is a great substiture. It is to lose fat and gain muscle. There are several other health benefits associated with just an hour of exercise or walking,such as reduction of cholesterol level, excretion of toxins from the body via sweat and perspiration, as well as lowering of glucose production. Even swimming is a good exercise. Also skipping. Choose one from these and do it sincerely daily and watch the result.

    Weigh the pros and cons of a lifestyle change and choose a method that will suit you.
