Patient discussion about best fit

Q. Anyone know what my best option would be to maintain my fitness? hello all……….I have a problem…. I live in countryside and without proper roads to run on so I have to run on a dirt mix gravel road and now during winter we get a lot of snow. Both the condition makes my jogging very difficult and my legs pain lot. Anyone know what my best option would be to maintain my fitness?

A. I have a solution a very simple one. First have a good shoe for your summer to run on those dirty and gravel roads. During winter days if you run on snow it itself will make you endurance good and if you feel with some difficulty then try some time on a treadmill and get heated up and then run on the snow. Try this……….. All the best.

Q. What is best for our children? Hi members, I trust you guys and I place my family problem before you all. Is there any one here to help me to settle a long-standing debate between my wife and me concerning the kind of milk our kids (ages 5, 6, 10 and 13) should be drinking. My wife insists that whole milk is best for young children and says that our pediatrician agrees. I have maintained that our kids should be drinking the kind of milk served at their school which is 1 percent or 2 percent low-fat milk. What is best for our children?

A. Here is the result for your debate… and the winner is … ‘the parent in the low-fat milk corner’. Your doctor’s belief is common but unfounded in science. So, for information on nutrition, ask a dietitian. Children under the age of 2 do need higher fat milk to support the development of the nervous system and as a way of getting the most caloric bang-for-the-buck into tiny tummies. However, the extra fat and calories are not as necessary for most kids after age 2. In fact, a preference for high-fat, high-calorie foods is one that you need to circumvent among your children. Gradually move them away from whole milk. Offer 2 % milk first, then work your way down to the skinny—skim milk. Don’t forget to also reduce dairy-fat intake by selecting reduced-fat and fat-free cheeses, yogurt, ice cream and other products. Over time, your children will balk at whole milk. The older children may be a tougher sell, so offer them pre-flavored chocolate and strawberry milk versus letting them add syrup

Q. What is the best way to build up my fitness level? This is Syed, I used to swim four times a week, for nearly 30 minutes each session. However, lately I have not gone, and last time I did go I was wrecked after 15 minutes. What is the best way to build up my fitness level? What swimming fitness program would you recommend?

A. Do 15 minutes like you did this time, then rest and do it again. Next time you go swimming, do 16 minutes, etc until you can go higher. It's like baby steps.
