People Neglect Fear of COVID as Food Orders Outrush –

If you are among those who are thrilled to once again see food delivery boys all around or plan to visit a restaurant and does not get a reservation or have to fight for one — as Covid-19 caseloads surge by nearly one lakh a day in India — mind you that this situation does not add up.

Why are people risking lives to satisfy their palate as India readies to become the top country with infected cases very soon (it crossed 60 lakh cases on Sunday), surpassing the US?

Is there an explanation as to why the online food delivery market has recovered to (and even grown beyond) pre-COVID levels in a number of large pockets in the country?

The answer is simple: To a large population, the coronavirus fear is now over, as they scramble to start living their weekend lives the way they used to be in the pre-COVID era.

Plus, top fine-dining restaurants and five-star hotels — from Marriott International to Grand Hyatt — are now taking orders for gourmet food with curated menus and innovative packaging via online delivery platforms like Swiggy and Zomato, delivering themselves from kitchen to your home.

Delhi and Mumbai are nearing full recovery (95 percent of pre-COVID) while metros such as Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Chennai are a tad behind the curve (nearly 80 percent of pre-COVID), according to a new Zomato report.

“Some cities such as Kolkata, Patna, Jamshedpur, Ranchi, and Siliguri have recovered completely and have exceeded pre-COVID levels,” said Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal.

In Delhi-NCR, affluent residential areas like DLF Phase 1 and 5 have recovered to 1.5 times of pre-COVID levels.

In South Delhi, the average order value rose by 65 percent between February and September 2020. The food delivery business in South Delhi is back to 110 percent of pre-COVID levels.

Connaught Place bounced back to pre-COVID levels and some micro-localities within Central Delhi are at two times of pre-COVID levels, Zomato said last week.

According to Prabhu Ram, Head- Industry Intelligence Group (IIG), CMR, the Covid-19 pandemic has contributed to a rapid shift in consumer behavior and giving rise to an all-new normal’ consumer.

“After months of being socially isolated and with an urge to break free, consumers are slowly pivoting from being overly-cautious to experimenting with online food delivery,” Ram told IANS.

“With more gourmet cuisine now available for home order from premium restaurants and five-star hotels, consumers now have an irresistible palette of choices,” he added.

According to Zomato, the ongoing IPL-13 season and the subsequent festival season will help the rest of the metros and smaller cities to make a full recovery soon and resume growing over pre-COVID levels.

“With more premium restaurants, — restaurants where a meal for two may cost Rs 1,500 and above, now opening up to online delivery — a larger number of affluent consumers are embracing online ordering,” Goyal informed.

Overall spends on such premium restaurants have grown by over 25 percent over pre-COVID levels.

As customers spend more time with their families, group ordering has become more relevant than ever.

Witnessing the trend, Swiggy recently launched Health Hub, a dedicated healthy food discovery destination on its main app.

With heightened health consciousness, increasing awareness around eating right, and growing demand for food among urban Indians, Swiggy worked with nutritionists and top restaurants in the country to enable curation of special health menus and dishes by restaurants.

Consumers have the ability to choose from gluten-free, high-protein, low-carb, organic, vegan, and keto meals across soups, salads, wraps, and desserts.

“There is a visible demand for healthy food choices by consumers and restaurants are seeking opportunities to innovate and stay relevant to these market changes,” said Vivek Sunder, COO, Swiggy.

“With the launch of Health Hub, we expect this trend of ordering healthy dishes to grow and more than double over the next 6 months”.

The food delivery marketing around being “contactless” has also appealed to the Indian consumers.

“This shift in consumer behavior is equally matched by outreach from online food delivery platforms, vouching for safety, hygiene, and all precautionary measures, including contactless deliveries,” Ram said. (IANS)

Why Am I Always Thirsty? – 9 Health Explanations for Excessive Thirst –

There’s nothing more satisfying than downing a glass of cool water when your throat is seemingly on fire. But if you find yourself unable to quench that urgent sense of thirst — whether you’ve worked your way through eight or eighteen cups of water in a given day — there may be a larger issue at hand. Feeling super thirsty is totally normal if you’ve just powered your way through a long workout, have spent the day outside under a hot sun, or are working on upkeep around the house (dehydration can manifest itself in cramps or fatigue as well). But endless thirst isn’t something that anyone should be living with in the long run.

Many people sip on water throughout the day, thinking they’re sufficiently hydrated; but for the majority, the simplest explanation for feeling thirsty is just that they’re not drinking enough. “You want to aim for half of your body weight in ounces of water each day,” says Stefani Sassos, MS, RD, CDN, the Good Housekeeping Institute’s registered dietitian, highlighting a rule of thumb that most can stick to. “If you weigh 160 pounds, as an example, you’ll want to aim for about 80oz based on that math — just about 10 cups of water a day. Get from ounces to cups by simply dividing by eight, since 8oz is one cup.”

If you find that your water intake is close or even above that recommended benchmark, it’s time to consider other factors that have you reaching for your water bottle. Believe it or not, it’s a condition all its own: polydipsia. “It’s an excessive amount of not only thirst but drinking, and it indicates a pathology, which is much different than dehydration,” says Ron Weiss, M.D., a board-certified internist and assistant professor of clinical medicine at Rutgers’ New Jersey Medical School. Your diet may play a role in potentially developing polydipsia or related symptoms, certainly, as can other lifestyle factors; sometimes, thirst may be an indicator of a larger issue that requires a doctor’s help. Below, we review nine more common reasons for constantly feeling thirsty, plus expert tips to finally help you quench that thirst.

Reminder: Consult your physician right away if you’re experiencing excessive thirst as it could be a signal for an underlying condition.

You’ve recently moved or started a new hobby.

Let us explain: If you normally have had plenty to drink throughout your routine, but that routine has adapted in some way recently, it may require you to increase the amount of water you consume in a given day. Most often, people don’t account for weather changes, new exercise routines, or a change in career and new daily physicality into upping their water intake. In hotter climates where you may sweat more, or if you’ve recently started playing a new sport or joined a new club, it’s crucial to drink more throughout the day, Sassos explains — especially for seniors and the elderly.

You may want to reevaluate your water intake if you are experiencing these symptoms regularly:

  • Reduced sweating.
  • Reduced urine production.
  • Skin elasticity issues.
  • Confusion, lightheadedness, or fainting. (But first, talk to your doctor and make sure these symptoms aren’t due to a medical issue!)

You’ve recently started a new diet.

Especially one that’s angled for dramatic weight loss. “In general, low-carb or keto diets put you at greater risk for dehydration. Carbohydrates retain fluids and electrolytes, so when you drastically decrease the amount of carbs in your diet, that results in extra water being removed through your urine — or more trips to the bathroom,” says Sassos, who has previously declared keto diets as one of the worst diets for many more reasons.

If you’re new to a diet where you’re drastically reducing or eliminating a food group entirely, it’s important to remain focused on how much water you drink every day, because of that risk of low-carb diets leading to dehydration (and if left unchecked, kidney stones or constipation). “The most important thing, regardless of your diet, is to drink according to your thirst and listen to your body,” Sassos adds. “You can also look at your urine to gauge your hydration; you want to see a light lemonade or pale straw-type color, which indicates you are properly hydrated.”

You could be eating way too much salt.

It’s also important to take a closer look at the food you’re already eating. Just like your body processes excess glucose, your kidney processes excess salt and redirects it into your urine, which in turns pulls liquids away from your blood. “And then you would pee an excessive amount,” Dr. Weiss says, adding that this process can happen in as little as a few hours if you’ve eaten a high-sodium meal. “Then, your brain would make you feel thirsty, to take back free water.”

While it’s natural (and good!) to drink lots of water after enjoying a salty meal, if you’re frequently eating meals that are overly high in sodium, chronic dehydration may not be the only condition you could battle later on. Overdoing it on sodium can lead to high-blood pressure over time, and may also lead to kidney or heart damage in the long run. The American Heart Association recommends that Americans eat less than 1,500mg of sodium each day, so if you already know you may be doubling or tripling that limit, talking to your primary care provider about a low-sodium diet is a good idea.

Think salt might be the culprit, but aren’t sure? Sassos advises doubling down on fruits and vegetables for a couple weeks to see if your frequent thirst disappears. “Fruits and vegetables naturally have a ton of water content and can help you reach your hydration goal without having to down an extra bottle,” she says. “Watermelon, celery, and cucumbers are some of my favorites, and all are over 90% water.”

You’re mistaking thirst for hunger.

We’re sure that you’ve heard that hunger can sometimes be mistaken for thirst, but did you know that the opposite is also true? “Many symptoms of dehydration, like fatigue and dizziness, can feel similar to feelings of hunger,” Sassos says. “It’s very important to listen to your body and get in touch with your hunger and thirst cues.”

If you’ve downed a few glasses of water and can’t get rid of the feeling that you should be drinking more, it might be time to reach for a snack or think about lunch or dinner. “But if you just had a balanced meal or snack… reach for a glass of water [first] to see if hydration is what you really need.”

You could be fighting a bad case of dry mouth.

It may be due to new medication or because of high-blood pressure (or a myriad of other health reasons), but dry mouth can also be mistaken for thirst. Dr. Weiss points out that caffeine intake, smoking, and over-the-counter antihistamines or cold medicine can aggravate a case of dry mouth. But medical experts at the Mayo Clinic say that those suffering from dry mouth can get some relief by chewing sugar-free gum to stimulate saliva, in addition to sipping water as frequently as possible. There are medications that can help relieve dry mouth if neither of these solutions work.

You may be prediabetic or unknowingly suffering from type 2 diabetes.

When it comes to Dr. Weiss’s patients, he says that those who have complained of excessive, constant thirst often end up having complications related to diabetes. Mostly, type 2 diabetes, otherwise known as diabetes mellitus in the medical community, as the kidneys are under more stress to absorb excess glucose, Dr. Weiss explains. When the kidney can’t keep up, the glucose ends up in your urine, dragging water along with it, making you feel awfully dehydrated. It can happen quite regularly if your diabetes is undiagnosed or undetected.

You’re eating or drinking too many foods high in diuretics.

Diuretic foods (like celery or asparagus) or drinks can work to make you thirsty over time because they encourage more urination than usual. “Diuretics force sodium to be eliminated by your kidneys… it’s the laws of osmosis, so you lose water in the process, and then your brain signals that you need more water,” Dr. Weiss explains. When it comes to diuretic supplements, he says, “It’s the physician’s job to make sure the patient isn’t getting too much diuretic… It’d be drying them out, making them thirsty, if they were being overmedicated with diuretics.”

Sassos explains that caffeinated beverages are known to be mildly diuretic, and if you are drinking too much coffee or soda over the course of the day, it may trigger innate thirst. “I recommend no more than 400mg of caffeine daily for healthy adults, or less, if you’re sensitive to caffeine like I am,” she says. Alcohol is also a diuretic and can be equally harmful for your body, especially if you already aren’t getting enough water during the day.

Your organs could have trouble processing water.

Sometimes, you can be drinking TOO much water — yes, really! “Overhydration is a real issue, though less common because normal healthy kidneys easily excrete excess water,” Sassos says. “It’s more common a problem for people who have kidney issues and can’t excrete urine normally.” If you have any chronic condition that affects your kidney, your doctor may have already spoken to you about adapting your hydration and beverages you should avoid (and if you haven’t had that discussion yet, it’s time!).

Kidneys aren’t the only organ that can influence your thirst and water regulation in your body. Dr. Weiss points out that your thyroid (which also can influence your appetite, temperature, and even your hair) can greatly impact how thirsty you feel if the gland’s hormone production is impacted. Hyperthyroidism and other thyroid issues can contribute to period irregularity and anxiety, among other things, all of which influences thirst. The National Institutes of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases also report that those with thyroid issues may also be more likely to suffer from type-1 diabetes, anemia, and other conditions, which may be the root cause of raging thirst.

You may be experiencing a rare hormone disorder.

It’s much more rare than having issues related to type 2 diabetes, but some individuals may develop a disorder that doctors know as diabetes insipidus, which triggers a sustained imbalance of fluids in your body. “It has to do with an inappropriately high production rate of a hormone called ADH, which stands for antidiuretic hormone, and how it affects your brain overall,” Dr. Weiss explains. “What this does is, it forces your kidney to dump water out of your body, beyond what’s appropriate; then, this hormone abnormality would force the person to seek water, like with a raging thirst. I’ve only confirmed it twice in my life, as it’s relatively rare.”

Those with diabetes insipidus would also be frequently urinating. But you wouldn’t be able to confirm the condition unless you discussed the issue and had a full set of blood work done by your provider — which hopefully would be in your plans long before you ever were worried about diabetes insipidus.

Good for the soul and your healthy eating plan, these easy comfort food Instant Pot recipes will remind you of childhood.

A warm, fuzzy blanket on a cold day. A cozy bubble bath. A bubbling pot of mac and cheese. Some things just about scream “comfort” the moment you feel, smell or taste them.

Comfort foods are a great way to reconnect to nostalgic and satisfying experiences around the table,” explains Rachel Fine, RD and owner of the nutrition counseling firm To The Pointe Nutrition in New York City.

Research proves this to be true: An October 2017 report in the International Journal of Gastronomy and Food Science found that when someone’s feeling lonely or isolated, comforting meals can serve as a reminder of positive social encounters they experienced in the past.

We’re not into feeling guilty about any food indulgences — and comfort foods can absolutely have a place in a meal plan, even a healthy one, Mary Stewart, RD, LD, the founder of Cultivate Nutrition, reminds us.

These comfort foods have the added benefit of making your meal plan more sustainable long-term because they include foods you enjoy so you won’t feel deprived, adds Michelle Hyman, RD, CDN, a dietitian at Simple Solutions Weight Loss. They also pack in plenty of satitating protein without as much fat as the traditional recipe.

So plug in your pressure cooker and slip on your softest sweater. It’s time to get cozy with these healthy Instant Pot comfort food recipes.

1. Keto, Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Chicken and Dumplings

Thanks to the pressure cooker function, this comfort food recipe is a 30-minute meal.

  • Calories: 273

“Chicken soup, like this chicken and dumplings recipe, is my favorite Instant Pot comfort food,” Fine says. “It’s easy to sneak in a ton of nourishing options like colorful veggies and hearty fibrous grains like quinoa.”

This version is loaded with vitamin-rich carrots, celery and onions as well as plenty of protein by way of chicken. Feel free to follow Fine’s lead and trade the homemade dumpling dough for your favorite whole grain if you’re in a hurry.

2. Instant Pot Turkey Chili

Try plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream as the cool, heat-taming dollop on top of this chili recipe.

  • Calories: 242

Healthy stews do exist, but chili is often high in calories and fat due to richer cuts of beef and higher-calorie flavor boosters like chocolate, beer or butter. And that’s before topping things off with decadent garnishes such as avocado, cheese or sour cream.

Here, ground turkey teams up with loads of lycopene-rich, heart-healthy tomatoes, fiber-filled beans and plenty of broth to stretch the meat. (Each bowl has a reasonable yet satisfying 3 ounces of turkey.)

3. Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff

You won’t even notice there’s no condensed soup in this beef stroganoff. In fact, it’s better without it!

  • Calories: 358

This hearty beef pasta uses a bit of butter and olive oil for flavor, but calls for whole-wheat egg noodles for more fiber and Greek yogurt instead of condensed soup for additional protein, less sodium and fewer additives.

If you’re craving even more color and flavor, toss in some produce. “My favorite savory comfort foods are creamy pasta dishes. I always add a green vegetable like broccoli or asparagus,” Stewart says.

Get the Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff recipe and nutrition info at Well Plated.

4. Healthy Instant Pot Mac and Cheese

All you need is one pot to create this hearty mac and cheese.

  • Calories: 414

This creamy mac and cheese gets a healthier twist with antioxidant-rich broccoli. Each serving packs 414 calories and 22 grams of protein.

To upgrade this classic even more, Fine suggests using lentil-based pasta (like Modern Table’s elbows).

“Lentil pasta has a neutral flavor and is packed with protein and fiber [13 grams and 6 grams, respectively, in the aforementioned Barilla pasta], both of which can help you feel more satisfied for longer periods of time than standard white pasta,” Fine says.

5. Instant Pot Turkey Bolognese

Pressure-cook the meat, vegetables and seasonings to savory, tender perfection in the Instant Pot.

  • Calories: 376

Omit red wine, oil and butter to trim more than 500 calories from this bolognese dish, and reduce the saturated fat with ground turkey instead of ground beef.

To add more nutrition to this meal, consider using chickpea or lentil pasta in place of the whole-wheat noodles this recipe calls for.

6. Favorite Instant Pot Gumbo

Lentils replace all the meat, making this a vegan dinner, too, if you opt for vegetable broth for the base.

  • Calories: 230

To enjoy a taste of New Orleans no matter where you live — and in less than 30 minutes — try this Instant Pot gumbo. No sausage, shrimp or butter is required when you layer on flavor with a variety of seasonings and load up each bowl with aromatic veggies.

Instead of rice, enjoy your serving of spicy gumbo with cauliflower rice or Hyman’s pick: Whole grains. “Try brown rice, wild rice or quinoa instead of white rice in comfort food recipes,” she says.

New Denver Restaurants This Week | Westword – Westword

The Budlong Hot Chicken first surfaced in Denver in 2018 as a food truck from Chicago restaurateur Jared Leonard, who launched the brand there in 2016. After about a year at Zeppelin Station, the Budlong flew the coop — only to land at 81 South Pennsylvania Street this week. Leonard’s Nashville-style hot chicken eatery takes over the space previously occupied by American Grind, serving sandwiches in several heat levels along with fries, biscuits, collard greens and other sides from 11 a.m to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Leonard and his wife, Amanda, are also working on opening Campfire, a wood-fired restaurant in Evergreen.

Two coffee shops have reopened after recent time off. Mint & Serif closed in July 2019 at its original location at 11500 West Colfax Avenue to expand into a larger space three miles east. The move took longer than anticipated because of the pandemic, but the cafe is now back open with beer, wine and coffee drinks, along with a menu of breakfast burritos and sandwiches, pastries and other coffeehouse fare.

And in the Denver Tech Center, Crave Coffee Roasters has reopened after new owner Jenny Barzegar made some changes. Look for scratch-baked pastries to go with the house-roasted coffee; you can even try vegan and vegetarian dishes inspired by Barzegar’s childhood in Guatemala. Crave is now open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Here’s our complete list of openings for the week of September 21 to September 27, 2020:

Zinrelo Loyalty Helps Keto Chow to Increase Average Order Value by 20.76% –

Keto Chow uses Zinrelo’s loyalty rewards platform to achieve phenomenal all-round growth.

Palo Alto, CA, September 26, 2020 –(– Keto Chow launched their rewards program to improve customer retention and build a loyal customer base. Acquiring new customers was a two-step challenge. The biggest challenge was to get people to understand how a keto diet would help them. Hence, apart from developing a loyal customer base, Keto Chow’s rewards program was also focused on increasing their Average Order Value (AOV).

The Keto Chow Rewards offers customers multiple point earning opportunities with simple actions. The rewards program is structured to create a 360-degree engagement for purchases made on website, referrals, welcome bonus and social media engagement (Facebook and Twitter). The rewards program is tier-based, to accelerate the points earning capability. These earned points can be redeemed for attractive rewards. This ensured customer loyalty and therefore a stronger retention.

The targeted loyalty email campaigns witnessed an open rate 45.71%. That is 3.29 times the industry average of 13.90%. Similarly, the click rate was 10.65X higher than the industry average of 2.10%. This proved that the customer engagement was high which was apparent by the increased average order value.

“Zinrelo’s suggestion to target customers, to increase their average order value was instrumental for us. Our customers buy from us to follow a healthier keto lifestyle. Having a rewards program helps us keep them engaged and even gives us a simple way to encourage sharing Keto Chow with their friends,” commented Chris Bair, Founder at Keto Chow, “It is phenomenal to see an increase of 20.76% in average order value (AOV).”

In any business, improvement in customer engagement will improve the customer retention. Customer retention will further help derive higher revenues from these loyal customers. For Keto Chow, the increase in average order value and the customer retention directly resulted in 20.36% increase of repeat purchase revenues.

“The vital part of a customer loyalty program is to understand which aspects to focus on at a micro-targeted level,” said Samir Palnitkar, VP of Customer Success at Zinrelo. “Zinrelo’s data science approach can easily identify the key elements to prioritize and structure the program for optimal results.”

About Keto Chow:
Keto Chow was started in January 2015 by Chris Bair. Keto Chow came about because doing a Ketogenic diet can be hard to figure out, especially getting the correct electrolytes and the right macronutrient mix. Keto Chow was setup to make a nutritionally complete food with taste good enough for everyone to enjoy. It would make it easy to follow a keto diet. In January 2016, the business changed from a Sole Proprietorship to “Keto Chow, LLC.” Sales continued to increase and in September 2016 the operations moved out of the Bair house and into a warehouse in South Jordan, Utah and moved again to Draper in 2019.

About Zinrelo:
Zinrelo is a modern-day, loyalty rewards platform that maximizes repeat sales and per-customer revenue through 360-degree customer engagement.

Why Should You Buy Peak BioBoost?

Your grandma might have told you that the best way to improve your toilet habits is by eating well before bedtime and drinking more water. While timing your meals correctly and staying hydrated are two amazing ways to maintain good digestive health, sometimes they’re just not enough.

What’s more, if your granny also told you about some remedies for improving your intestinal condition, know that not all remedies suit everyone. In fact, while including more chia seeds in the diet can help some people poop better, for other people chia seeds can just cause diarrhea and lower their blood pressure too.

Weight loss: Drinking this twice a day can help shed belly fat fast – Express

Weight loss is often associated with intense exercise and extreme dieting but adding a certain drink into your diet could help you not only lose weight but also help to suppress your appetite. Dr Deborah Lee, Dr Fox Online Pharmacy has shared with how drinking apple cider vinegar daily could help you lose weight fast.

Apple cider vinegar is a popular condiment regularly used in cooking as well as baking. 

It is made from fermented apples – this means covering chopped apples with water and leaving them at room temperature until the natural sugars ferment.

Used as a health tonic for thousands of years, the benefits from drinking it daily include weight loss and reduced hunger. 

Dr Deborah Lee explains: “Most research on the effects of ACV on weight loss has been done in animals, with relatively few human studies, but some have had promising results.

“Several human studies have shown ACV reduces appetite, improves satiety, helps regulate blood glucose levels, and interferes with fat deposition and storage.”

Apple cider vinegar helps the stomach to empty more slowly. This means there is a small reduction in insulin levels which according to the expert, “means you feel fuller for longer and are less likely to get sweet food cravings.”

However the expert explains that drinking apple cider vinegar alone will not result in weight loss.

Deborah said: “ACV can only aid weight loss if you also follow a calorie-restricted diet and increase your physical exercise.”

Those who wish to try apple cider vinegar for weight loss should also research what one they buy as some contain higher amounts of acetic acid as well as containing lots of preservatives.

The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar is known to aid weight loss in several different ways.

This includes lowering blood sugar levels which can help aid weight loss.

The expert continued: “If you buy apple cider vinegar as a liquid, look for an organic, unfiltered product. Organic because it will be free from preservatives and pesticides.

“Unfiltered because during the production process, apples are fermented. If the pulp is filtered, the pulp residue called ‘mother’ is removed. This contains healthy bacteria and enzymes, good for your microbiome.”

The tonic should also always be diluted in water and Debroah recommends drinking it twice a day.

Only a small amount of vinegar is needed to show results and it has been proven to help reduce belly fat.

She added: “Always dilute 15ml in 500 ml of water and drink 250 ml morning and night before a meal.”

One tablespoon which is around 15ml of vinegar contains about three calories and no carbohydrates.

Drinking apple cider vinegar straight can cause damage to the tooth enamel as well as damage to the oesophagus. 

However there is a secret way to incorporate the vinegar into your diet without having to face the nasty taste or smell.

Deborah said: “There seems to be no difference in the bioavailability between the capsules or the liquid. If you prefer to take apple cider vinegar capsules instead, take two-six capsules per day, taking two capsules before each starchy meal.”

Although the benefits of apple cider vinegar extend weight loss, results can take up to 12 weeks to see and the expert recommends pairing the tonic with a healthy balanced diet.
