Department of Nutrition & Health

The process of nourishing your body with the right nutrients through healthy eating practices that contribute to your overall development and well-being is known as nutrition. A nutritious diet is one that gives the body the strength it requires to operate optimally. The body requires nutrients like vitamins, minerals, carbs, protein, fat, and water in order to develop, grow, and maintain its health.

Numerous health issues, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some forms of cancer, and obesity can be avoided by just consuming a balanced diet on a regular basis. Additionally, it can aid with mood, energy, and general wellness.

At SHALBY Sanar International Hospitals, we have a dedicated team of expert Dieticians and Nutritionists, who specialize in curating personalized diet plans to meet the specific nutritional needs of every individual. This is done by thoroughly assessing their overall health and working in close coordination with experts from different specialities, thereby offering a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach. 

Eating a healthy diet can be done in a variety of ways. Some people may commit to a particular diet plan, such as the DASH diet or the Mediterranean diet, while others just resort to choosing healthier alternatives. Our experts do not support fad diets and every diet plan is backed by research and scientific evidence to ensure the holistic well-being of our patients. 

Here are some general recommendations for making sure that your diet is balanced and healthy:

  • Consume a lot of fruits and veggies: Fruits and vegetables are low in calories and high in nutrients. They also contain a lot of fibre, which can make you feel satiated and full.
  • Opt for whole grains rather than refined ones: A good source of fibre and minerals are whole grains. Additionally, they offer better blood sugar regulation than processed carbohydrates.
  • Pick sources of lean protein: Among the sources of lean protein include chicken, fish, beans, and lentils. Compared to red meat, they have fewer calories and saturated fat.
  • Cut back on bad fats: Saturated and trans fats, for example, can raise your risk of heart disease and other illnesses.
  • Limit the amount of sugar you add: Added sugar is a significant and unproductive calorie source. Additionally, it may contribute to health issues like weight gain.
  • Take in a lot of water: Health is dependent on water as our body constitutes 70% of it. It might make you feel full and keeps your body hydrated

Consult your doctor or a trained dietitian if you're unsure on how to incorporate healthy changes into your diet. They can assist you in developing a personalised strategy that works for you.

Here’s how you can make your daily meals healthy: 

  • Make more home-cooked meals: You will have more control over the components of your diet as a result.
  • Analyse food labels thoroughly: This will make it easier for you to know what's in the food you're eating.
  • Don't eat anything processed: Foods that have been processed often contain undesirable fats, sugar plus salt.
  • Include wholesome snacks in your diet: You can prevent overeating during meals by eating healthy snacks.
  • Daily breakfast is a must: Overeating might result from skipping breakfast later in the day.
  • Schedule time for exercise: Good health relies on physical activity. It can lower your chance of developing chronic diseases, help you maintain a healthy weight, and lift your spirits.

A Nutritious Diet helps to prevent many chronic illnesses and aids in faster recovery post any surgical treatment. Here are a few advantages of eating a nutritious diet for your health:

  • Lower risk of heart disease & stroke
  • Lower likelihood of type 2 diabetes
  • Reduced risk of some cancer types
  • Elevated mood and  energy levels
  • Better general health

At Sanar International Hospitals, we believe in guiding our patients on every step to ensure a hassle-free journey. With regular monitoring and consultations, we keep track of your diet and make necessary changes whenever and wherever necessary.
