Calories are a measure of the amount of energy in food. If we know how many calories are there in our food, we can help balance the energy we put into our bodies with the energy we use. And that’s the key to a healthy weight.
If you are trying to lose weight, it is a good idea to eat less and be more active. Eating less is important when you are trying to lose weight. To maintain a stable weight we need to burn all that we take in. If on certain days of the week, we take in more calories than needed, then on the other days, we should take less than usual.

The prevalence of birth control products in Bangladesh especially among the upper classes might be considered to be a positive change in our overpopulated nation, however the lack of information and the frequent wrong application of such products is startling and terrifying. As a medical student, I often face strange cases in the emergency room. The worst kind is when young women come to the ER with incomplete abortions or who are so severely ill that their ill informed decision can mean a lifetime of suffering.

Pregnant women should be careful when they carry heavy objects, especially as their pregnancy progresses.
When you're pregnant, your ligaments become looser and your joints become less stable, making it easier to get hurt. As your belly grows and your center of gravity shifts forward, there's also more pressure on the lower back, making it more vulnerable to strain.
The shift in a pregnant woman's center of gravity can result in a loss of balance, too, which makes falls more likely. In addition to causing harm to the mother, a serious fall could be risky for the baby, pos...
