Q. Is anyone restricted to have barley? what is the benefit of having barley and what is the best way to consume them? Is anyone restricted to have barley?

A. It grows in many parts of the world. As it is a whole grain it is good for health. It has soluble fiber and reduces blood cholesterol and glucose. It is low in fat content.

Is exercise recommended during pregnancy, if yes, are there any restrictions during pregnancy?

A. I exercised all through my pregnancies. I only gained a total of 10-12 pounds each time. I had easy deliveries because of the exercise. This has nothing to do with nausea. I had 9 months of nausea the first time around. Don't overdo the exercise, walking is the best exercise ever, and I climbed hills and stairs and walked several miles a day. My shortest delivery time was 5 minutes. I almost did not make it to the hospital. All my babies were healthy.

Q. What actions should i take in order to keep my self in a sharp and restricted fitness control?

A. I would try some body weight circuits 3 to 4 times a week.
