Corona Kills the obese people easily

The Mortal Threat Of Corona For The Obese!

Corona Can Cause Severe Complications And Higher Mortality In The Obese!

In a recent study of the people admitted in ICU in UK hospitals, with severe complications of Corona infection, published in the Daily Mail, two-third are overweight or obese or morbidly obese. and although the average age of those with severe complications is about sixty-four, thirty-seven percent are under the age of sixty.

It means that the overweight and obese are, like they are to all other illnesses and infections, more vulnerable to the threat of the Corona infection and also that even the younger people too are not safe from the severe complications of Corona infection. More so if they are obese.

The immune systems of the obese people are constantly so busy fighting against the inflammatory processes that go on in the bodies of the obese, trying to contain them and repair the damage caused by them that there are no resources available for the bodies of the obese, to fight against the new infection of the Coronavirus.

Plus the excess fat in the chest and the abdomen prevents the diaphragm and lungs to expand and inhale oxygen. Starved of oxygen, organs will begin to fail.

The COVID-19 virus kills by spreading deep into the lungs and causing complications such as pneumonia.

The virus finds it easier to invade deep into the oxygen-starved lungs of the obese than the lungs of the slimmer, fitter, healthier people, whose immune systems are stronger.

Many obese people also suffer from critical illnesses like hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, liver, PCOS/PCOD, and kidney diseases. These diseases make people all the more prone to succumb to Corona than to recover from the infection.

The diets of the obese are also more likely to be deficient in fiber, vitamin, and mineral-rich foods like fruits and vegetables, which bolster the immune systems of the body.

Exercise also bolsters immunity by increasing certain immune cells of the body. The obese also lack exercise. Hence they are always immunocompromised and succumb to infections faster.

The arteries of the obese are also more atherosclerotic and clogged and the immune cells are prevented from reaching various parts of the body to defeat infections, fast enough.

This probably explains why the obese are more prone to severe complications of generally all infections including Corona.

So, whether you are obese or not, stay home, stay safe, eat healthily and begin to at least walk regularly at home. Use the compulsory homestay to lose as much weight as you can and get fitter! And don’t stop even after the Corona threat is over, the newer weight and fitness will continue to protect you against all the new infections that will invade the world in the future! If you have any queries regarding how to lose weight at home then you contact our obesity clinic in Pune.

We have no choice but to stay home, stay safe and get a slim, fit and healthy as we can, while we have the time at our disposal now! Our very survival depends upon it!

Health benefit due to weight loss

Health Benefits Of Weight Loss!

Benefits Of Being Slim And Healthy!

Obese people are never fully healthy either physically or mentally. Most obese people have low self-esteem, lack self-confidence and find themselves socially isolated. They tend to be irritable and gradually avoid people. Young people find it difficult to get a good life partner.

Obesity and the faulty lifestyle associated with it, lead to a very wide range of diseases, some of which may not even appear to be directly connected to obesity.

The obese tend to be irritable, stressed out, depressed and may have poor self-esteem. Their energy levels are low and they tire quickly. There are pains and aches everywhere.

Backache and joint pains are common. Spondylosis, prolapsed discs, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, varicose veins, cholecystitis (inflammation of the gall bladder), and some hernias are prevalent in the obese.

Fatty liver (hepatic steatosis) is often associated with obesity. Some fat is there in a healthy liver, but the accumulation of excessive fat in the liver is called fatty liver. It can lead to inflammation and damage to the liver tissue and scarring (fibrosis) of the liver parenchyma. Extensive liver fibrosis leads to cirrhosis, which can cause liver failure, which is a life-threatening illness.

High blood pressure, diabetes, coronary heart disease and cerebral strokes (paralysis) are frequently associated with obesity.

Amongst obese ladies ‘ infertility, difficult pregnancies, and labor, abortions and complications during a cesarean section are common.

Polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD) or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is common among young women. PCOD is a condition in which the ovaries develop small fluid-filled sacs or cysts, causing hormonal imbalances and the menstrual periods are generally delayed or completely absent. This condition is usually associated with weight gain and frequently with infertility.

The obese always have a greater risk during surgery.

Apart from these diseases, a wide range of other diseases, including some cancers, are linked to obesity and the faulty lifestyle associated with it.

High-Risk Abdominal Obesity:

Excessive accumulation of fat in the abdomen can have dangerous implications for your health. Abdominal obesity can lead to the dangerous triad of hypertension (high blood pressure), dyslipidemia (high levels of cholesterol and blood fats) and type-2 diabetes. These three together can lead to coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction and also death.

So if you have a big belly, it is imperative that you wake up and do something about it urgently.

Effect of weight loss:

When people begin to eat healthily and at least walk regularly, they begin to lose weight and start feeling fresh and energetic. The skin and hair health begins to improve. People begin to like their reflection in the mirror.

Hyperacidity, digestive complaints, constipation get corrected.

The blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides levels begin to drop. The bad cholesterol, LDL cholesterol drops down while the good cholesterol, the HDL cholesterol begins to climb.

Various pains and aches reduce. Backache, arthritic pains in knees, hips, pains in heels improve.

Young women overcome PCOD, conceive naturally, stop aborting and become happy mothers, without expensive fertility treatments.

Losing weight protects us from illnesses like hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and strokes, cholecystitis and fatty liver and many types of cancers.

Losing weight can reverse most of the above illnesses and conditions completely and make you slim and healthy!

Lifestyle benefits:

Obesity and most of the illnesses associated with it are lifestyle diseases. The only way to get slim and healthy for a lifetime is to adopt healthy food habits and a healthy lifestyle, for a lifetime. So you learn to eat well and become physically more active and fit for a lifetime.

This is exactly the reverse of trying to lose weight on unhealthy, starvation based or fad diets and injurious exercises off and on. Diets are temporary, so are their results, eating healthy is permanent and so are its results!

Personal, Psychological and social benefits:

Excellent weight loss on your own, normal, everyday, healthy food, moderate and enjoyable exercises, ample water and sleep results in glowing, healthy skin making people of all ages look and feel younger and better. Young men and ladies look naturally more handsome or pretty.

People become happy and confident about losing weight, they regain their self-esteem, they become socially more acceptable, in young people, matrimonial or matchmaking prospects improve. They become more acceptable in the work environment.

Many even middle-aged men and women feel very good to be able to wear better clothes.

Economic benefits:

The cost of medical care and infrastructure comes down if more and people become fit and healthy.

The productivity of the whole society improves if people are more fit and healthy, directly benefiting society.

Slimming Without Stepping Out Of Your Home

Slimming Successfully, In Spite Of Corona!

Slimming Without Stepping Out Of Your Home!

Today the dreaded Corona pandemic means, our safety lies in staying confined to our homes, at least for the next few months, till the pandemic is controlled.

But the health of millions of overweight people across the globe also depends upon their losing or not losing weight in not too distant future! Some may be threatened more than others! Some may be looking to lose weight for personal reasons like an upcoming event like their own wedding or a one in their close family.

But what choices do they have under the life-threatening pandemic of Coronavirus?

Even the heavily advertised commercial slimming programs, including gyms, selling highly questionable treatments also require you to go over to their premises, which you can hardly risk now!

My ‘Distance Program’ is finely tuned to help people all over the world, get slim and healthy, for over three and a half decades now, with or without meeting me personally or stepping out of home, with equal felicity!

Pune people naturally meet me more often than those abroad or from other towns in India, but a few never do, like a middle-aged Marathi lady from Hyderabad, who lost an amazing twenty-five kg, without ever meeting me! A young man in Frankfurt, originally from Satara, now a German citizen, lost sixteen kg to protect himself from a strong family history of diabetes from catching up with him, met me for the first time only after losing twelve kg when he visited home to India for his annual vacation in July!

This means that if you want to lose weight with a degree of urgency in these difficult times, then it is best that you take a treatment that is completely consultation based and which can be executed completely without leaving the safety of your home.

People invariably contact me by calling or mail or by using the ‘Make A Quick Inquiry’ or the ‘Feedback’ form on my website, some with a word of mouth reference, some finding me on Google.

People from Pune meet me for a free initial inquiry visit after I mail them the basic information and the process of the treatment and a few links of some important pages on the website. People outside Pune and India, join without the benefit of this visit, with only a voice call for more inquiry.

But now we are replacing this personal visit with a video call for everyone who wishes to learn everything about the treatment, till the Corona pandemic threat continues.

The ‘Distance Program’ treatment essentially revolves around planning and helping you to adopt a healthy lifestyle including a healthy nutritional plan based on your own, normal, everyday food and exercise as simple as walking or spot marching or jogging depending upon your age and fitness. We can also use a cardiovascular exercise machine like a treadmill or an elliptical trainer or an exercise bike if you have one at home. This means you don’t have to step out of the safety of your home even for exercise!

There is no starving under bogus slimming machines, medicines, meal replacement shakes or magic diets, no painful workout and protein supplements, no psychological torture involved!

Once the treatment is planned, people under my care all over the world, tell me every day exactly what they have eaten, how much water they have consumed and how much and which exercise they have taken and also its intensity, thanks to modern-day tools of communication and measurement of exercise. People report daily and receive daily advice from me, based on their daily reports.

This excellent system of daily reports and advice, ensures proper execution of the program of every person under my care, dramatically improving results!

Those who are completely satisfied with the full information about the treatment can join the treatment online. Further treatment can proceed completely online!

So, if you wish to start the treatment urgently without waiting for the threat of Corona to get over, without leaving the safety of your home, you can safely join my ‘Distance Program’!

I can guarantee absolutely safe and healthy slimming very much at your home, anywhere in the world!

High Protein Diets For Weight Loss!

Dangers Of High Protein Diets and Protein Supplements!

For over three-fourths of a century a few ‘obesity experts’ have expounded the theory of how proteins are good and carbohydrates are bad for human health. They have persistently advocated high protein diets as a sure shot weight loss diet. You see them in many variants of high protein – low carbohydrate diets.

Gyms too continue to sell the idea of high protein diets and protein supplements as it suits them to sell expensive protein supplements and strength training exercises under even more expensive personal trainers of questionable expertise.

Such so-called obesity experts and the gym industry thrives on making people believe that they should shun carbohydrates and eat high protein diets comprising of chicken and eggs.

Today millions of people imagine that carbohydrates are bad and proteins and fats are good for their health.

If you are one of them, you will do well to understand:

Carbohydrates don’t make you fat, excess calories do. Both carbohydrates and proteins provide 4 calories each gm while fats provide 9!

If you eat any of the above three nutrients in excess of your requirement, you will gain weight, not just carbohydrates. if you are trying to lose weight then you want to check our distance program. Fats are most likely to provide excess calories as they provide more than twice as many calories as carbohydrates and proteins. If

Most high protein foods like flesh, eggs, full-fat dairy, cheese, full cream paneer, and soya provide more fats than proteins.

So all high protein diets are more high-fat diets than high protein diets.

So they are much more likely to make you fat than carbohydrates’ dominant diets.

Whole grain cereals and pulses, vegetables and fruits are the heart-healthy foods, not high protein – high-fat diets.

Average people need no more than 0.8 gm protein per kg body weight and athletes need 1.5 to 2 gm, both levels can be supplied adequately by balanced, everyday food.

High protein – high-fat diets can increase your total and bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and decrease your healthy HDL cholesterol and lead to excess weight and cause hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes, strokes and heart disease.

Being very low in fiber, they also cause constipation, piles, fissures and in some, diverticulosis and colorectal cancers.

The metabolism of protein produces large amounts of acids. This causes acidosis which our body must correct. The kidneys must excrete this acid to maintain the acid-base balance within the body. But the kidneys cannot handle fluids with so high acidity and they must dilute these acids with great amounts of water. Hence the body loses a lot of water and this leads to dehydration.

The body also uses calcium to neutralize this excess acid. Most of the body’s calcium is stored in bones. Thus the calcium is withdrawn from bones and used for this purpose, this leads to osteoporosis and can also cause kidney stones over a period of time.

This puts excessive strain on the kidneys which are already struggling hard to eliminate excessive amounts of waste products and this leads to chronic kidney disease in the long run.

The other vital organ eliminating the toxic waste products of protein metabolism in the liver. So both of these vital organs are overloaded when you take excessive proteins. This leads to kidney and liver diseases if excessive proteins and protein supplements are consumed for a long period. For this reason, people with a history of kidney or liver disease must not take excessive proteins from food and supplements.

Most gym-goers take protein supplements, in addition to eating high protein – high-fat diets in the form of multiple eggs and boneless chicken daily to help build bigger muscles and their recovery after weight training exercises.

For a vast majority of people, excessive consumption of high protein foods and protein supplements have no special benefit in either muscle building or repair. In fact, they do more damage than good.

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Our health depends upon getting a particular balance of amino acids, which is provided naturally in a balanced diet. Protein supplements provide a limited range of amino acids, thus severely disrupting this balance which can only lead to grave health risks.

Protein supplements, usually in the form of shakes, are high in calories. Thus they lead to more weight gain.

Most protein supplements are made from casein, whey or soya protein. Many people are sensitive to these proteins and develop gases, abdominal pain, hyperacidity, nausea and diarrhoea or constipation. People who consume protein supplements for sustained periods, and eat little heart-healthy food and fiber, suffer from chronic constipation, piles, fissures, diverticulosis, and colorectal cancers. Straining at stools can cause hernias.

Contamination with toxic elements is an ever-present threat when producing synthetic protein supplements.

A 2010 study found that some of the artificial protein supplements were contaminated with toxic metals like arsenic, cadmium, and lead, which can seriously damage your health.

Thus, obesity, dehydration, constipation, piles, fissures, diverticulosis and colorectal cancers, calcium loss from bones, kidney and liver damage, heart disease and strokes can be long term effects of excessive protein consumption.

So think twice before having high protein – high fat – low carbohydrates diets and buying protein supplements!

There is absolutely no need to waste money and health on high protein – high fat – high-calorie protein foods and protein supplements.

Healthy Weight Loss Diet

Healthy Food Plan For Healthy Weight Loss

Today millions of people all over the world are frustrated with obesity and the dangerous diseases associated with it. Most of them would give anything to find a perfectly healthy weight loss diet.

Are you one of them?

This is how we can plan a safe, simple and healthy weight loss food plan that you can follow all your life.

Our breakfast generally includes dishes like chapatis, pohe, upama, idli, dosa and thalipith.

Our lunch and dinner include chapatis, bhakri, rice, dals, and vegetables.

The food of South Indians revolves around idli, dosa and rice and sambar.

Of these chapatis, bhakri and rice are made from cereals.

Dals and sambar are made from pulses.

Idli and dosa are made from rice and udid dal, so they include both cereals and pulses.

Wheat, rice, jowar, bajri, nachani, oats, and corn are cereals.

Red gram, green gram, Bengal gram, lentils, and legumes are pulses.

Together they not only provide us with adequate carbohydrates and energy, a wide range of vitamins, minerals and fiber but also most of our protein needs.

Fruits and vegetables provide us with a wide range of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber to make our food more complete.

The cooking oil and the concealed fat in every food that we eat provide us with the essential fats that we need.

Eating a wide variety of foods along these provides us with adequate nutrition including vitamins and minerals.

In addition to this, we need to ensure that we get enough Vitamin B12, the essential fats omega 3 and Vitamin D, too.

Vitamin B12 is available only in animal source foods like milk, eggs, flesh, and fish.

Vegetarians need to consume 2.5 to 3 cups of milk every day to get the necessary Vitamin B12 daily.

Omega 3 fatty acids are an important component of the essential fats that our body needs. Amongst other functions, they also protect our heart from coronary artery disease.

Omega 3 is of two types, the sea source and the vegetable source omega 3.

Of these, the sea source omega 3 is more potent in protecting the heart than the vegetable source omega 3.

Unfortunately, it is available only in sea fish. But few Indians eat fish.

One solution to this problem is to take omega 3 supplements.

There are very few natural food sources of Vitamin D. Fortunately our bodies build Vitamin D when our skin is exposed to sunlight. We can get adequate Vitamin D by getting exposed to about 5 minutes of sunlight daily.

Thus chapati, rice, bhakri, idli, dosa, dal, sambar, usal, pithla, vegetables, milk, fruit and sea fish and a healthy cooking oil make up a completely balanced diet!

Along with this, we also have to avoid the following high carbohydrate and high-fat foods to keep our calorie consumption moderate.

Avoid high carbohydrate foods like Sugar, jaggery, sago, honey, rava, maida and refined flours.

Avoid high-fat foods like groundnuts, coconut, sesame, cream, ghee, butter, cheese, and full cream paneer.

Also avoid fried foods, bakery products, and fast foods.

This is the simplest, safest and healthiest food plan that you can follow lifelong to become slim and healthy for a lifetime. Call it the healthiest weight loss diet, if you like!

Once you settle into this kind of food plan and you can reduce a little bit of rice and chapatis from your meals, even half a chapati and half a bowl rice would be fine for most people and start walking twice a day. Slowly you can reach a level of a brisk walk of half an hour twice a day.

If you persist, you will start losing weight healthily and happily and slim down in due course of a few months, your skin and hair health will be at their best and your blood pressure, sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides levels will correct themselves and you will get fighting fit.

This is the only safe and simple way of living that can make you slim and healthy for a lifetime!

What Makes Us The Best Obesity Clinic In Pune

What Makes Us The Best Obesity Clinic In Pune

Over three and half decades ago, as a young doctor, I was absolutely convinced that obesity and its accompanying diseases like various pains, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and strokes and PCOD, miscarriages and infertility amongst ladies were going to spread like wildfire amongst the affluent Indians in decades to come.

And there was hardly any initiative from the medical world towards helping the masses to become aware of these risks, far less make available scientific treatment to fight and prevent obesity.

That was the reason why I set up my pioneering obesity clinic in Pune back in the eighties.

I was the first doctor to set up what then was the novel obesity clinic in Pune or perhaps anywhere else in India, with a full-fledged exercise unit.

I knew that nobody could eat anything other than their own, normal, everyday food for a lifetime, nobody could ‘diet’ all their lives. I knew that diets are temporary and so are their results!

I knew that I had to plan excellent nutrition for people under my care, from their own, normal, everyday food and get them used to exercising regularly and happily to make them slim and healthy for a lifetime!

That is exactly what we put people under my care through, at my well-equipped obesity clinic in Pune. Meeting people every day, understating what they can follow easily and happily to enjoy slimming down without any pressures quickly taught me all I needed to learn to treat Indian people at their homes all over the world, on my consultation based ‘Distance Slimming Program’.

I did exactly that to people under my care and never had a moment to repent. I quickly learned how to manage people on a daily basis as I was meeting and guiding them on a daily basis. I learned very early what suited people and what didn’t. So I could perfect my line of treatment from the start of my practice and we got brilliant results day in day out.

A decade later, my fears about the exponential spread of obesity amongst affluent Indians were coming true and more and more people were falling prey to it and its accompanying diseases mentioned above.

Soon the obesity treatment market became a billion rupee industry in our country and obesity clinics and slimming treatments of various kinds and gyms started mushrooming in Pune and all over India.

But most of these treatments continue to sell people either starvation based diets under one expensive bogus pretext or another or selling them exercises under expensive personal trainers of dubious training and equally expensive protein supplements in posh gyms.

And the self-styled obesity clinics in Pune and everywhere else are selling people the dream of slimming them down effortlessly under magic slimming machines or medicines or magic diets or meal replacement shakes or food packs, under huge publicity.

But all they are really giving people are ill health, injuries, failures, and frustrations!

People frustrated with obesity and its accompanying illnesses continue to fall easy prey to the huge and alluring advertisements of these treatments or gyms and soon get even more frustrated when they experience that they can’t sustain these treatments and regain any lost weight and some more in a short time!

Today Dr. Nitin Gupte Obesity Clinic has inadvertently become the last destination of Indian people who have failed to get slim and healthy in Pune or anywhere else in the world!

And they are immediately surprised to experience a totally new kind of perfectly designed treatment plan in which they eat their own, normal, everyday food, only fine-tuned just a little by me, to make it perfect in terms of nutrition and most often, walk themselves to excellent slimming, health and fitness, very much at their own homes, anywhere in the world, under my daily guidance!

Every minutest detail is planned perfectly, based on the science of health and nutrition that is explained in simple, easy to understand articles on my website and every question that comes to their minds has already been answered hundreds of times before and is also explained in detail on my website, for their ready reference.

It is a very simple treatment, precisely defined and easy to follow, at home, anywhere in the world. And modern-day communication tools have made it very easy for people under my care to report to me daily, their food and water consumption and exercise and for me to guide them daily, based on their reports.

Excellent, precise, easy to follow the treatment plan, daily reporting and advice and constant inspiration make us the best Obesity Clinic based in Pune that is successfully treating Indians all over the world!

psoriasis of the hands

Food Has the Power to Make or Break Our Health! She Came to Me to Lose Weight, but Got Rid of the Psoriatic Patches and Arthritis of Hands Instead!

The early forties college lecturer had suddenly developed psoriatic patches on the skin of her hands and fingers. She had also developed arthritic pain, stiffness and cracking in the joints of her hands and fingers. There was no history of psoriasis in her family but she still had developed it.

As usual, she was put on steroids by skin specialists and not surprisingly she put on more weight. She may have already been a little overweight like most ladies her age are, these days.

Scared of putting on more weight during her impending menopausal age, she came to me. She wasn’t too perfect in following my treatment plan or in her daily reporting to me, as per the protocol of our treatment.

I reminded her a few times to start following the protocol better. She suddenly called to say that she wanted to meet me, at the end of three weeks, instead of at the first month end.

She had lost 2 kg in three weeks, but that was not what she wanted to show me, she wanted to show me that the skin of her hands had cleared up substantially and the pain, stiffness and cracking in the joints of her hand and fingers had vanished completely!

What may have caused them to go away? Like everyone else under my care, she was basically eating more or less her own normal, everyday food, only fine tuned just a little by me, to improve her overall nutrition. So it couldn’t be anything normal in her food.

Most people working together in places like IT companies, banks, colleges or schools tend to eat snacks like pizzas, ‘samosas’ and ‘wada pav’ etc. fast food snacks those are easily available to them, depending upon where they work.

Was it because she had stopped eating the ‘samosas’ and ‘wada pav’ those she was probably eating in the college? Did the oil used and reused again and again to fry these snacks, as happens invariably, cause the psoriasis in the first place? Did the trans fatty acids that she consumed through these fast foods cause the dreaded skin disease?

Did stopping consuming these fried foods help clear the illness?

I think yes, stopping these wrong snacks had not only helped her lose weight but had also gotten rid of her psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis!

So it is worthwhile remembering:



Sweet Product

Food Has the Power to Make or Break Our Health! She Came to Me to Lose Weight, but Got Her Mystery Illness Solved Instead!

An early forties lady consulted me from Aurangabad some ten years ago. She used to have repeated bouts of swelling all over her body along with fever and extreme fatigue. The lady was bed ridden for a few days each time she had such attacks. She saw many consultants, but the attacks did not stop.

She didn’t eat particularly bad, but she loved a certain type of ‘mithai’ from a well known ‘mithai’ shop in Aurangabad. She brought home this mithai every few days. Naturally she had to avoid it as much as possible once she joined my treatment.

She followed her treatment plan well and began losing weight quite well. Her episodes of swelling, fever and fatigue stopped altogether.

Then one day she felt a strong desire to eat her favourite mithai and she bought it. But more health conscious now, she ate it only moderately.

And she was hit by her typical illness straight away, but this time she recovered faster. She was happy that the illness was milder and she recovered quickly this time. She thought it was because she was healthier and fitter now.

But a few weeks later she again ate the same mithai in a small quantity and the illness hit her straight away once more!

This time she reported it to me, the first time she hadn’t.

That’s when both of us suspected that the mithai could be the cause of her illness. We decided to banish it completely and she never had another bout of her illness again!

So it is worthwhile remembering:

keep slim after weight loose

Finding The Best Weight Loss Treatment To Eliminate Risk Factors!

Today millions of people all over the world are suffering from obesity and various pains and diseases like hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, strokes, PCOD, miscarriages, and infertility those accompany it!

People are so frustrated with obesity and its accompanying diseases that they are constantly searching for and hoping that some brand new, magic weight-loss treatment will come along in Pune, or anywhere else they may be in the world and help them lose weight effortlessly.

No wonder then that the weight loss treatments in Pune and also all over the world have become a multi-billion dollar industry.

Most weight loss treatments in Pune or anywhere else in the world today are busy luring these hapless people, selling them expensive dreams of effortless weight loss with some revolutionary, magic diet, slimming machine or medicine or meal replacement shakes!

But behind the facade of each of these magic treatments lies the inevitable starvation based diets. No one on these treatments can escape the dangerous ill effects of starvation and luckily most people find the diet too tough and become miserable on them and quit it within a few weeks or months. They are the lucky ones. Those who persist, flirt with great danger, even death!

Starvation forces the body to lose glycogen, water, and proteins. The result is they become wrinkled, shrivelled and dehydrated, without really looking appreciably slimmer.

Soon people start feeling weak, get anaemic and unfit and generally feel unwell. The initial false sense of weight loss encourages some to carry on starvation for some more time causing more deficiencies. Apart from anemia, there will be a loss of body proteins and deficiency of most micronutrients. Calcium loss is common. It can lead to dental caries, bone pains and osteoporosis.

Constipation, fissures, and haemorrhoids (or piles) are also common.

Hyperacidity, severe digestive tract disorders including ulcers, colitis, and mal-absorption syndromes are common side effects of sustained starvation. There will pain in the abdomen, indigestion, gases and loose motions. They can become a lifetime disability.

People on liquid diets may develop cholecystitis, inflammation of the gall bladder and gall stones.

Sustained low-calorie diets depresses the metabolic rate, that is, the body burns fewer calories throughout the day than before. So people gain more weight than they lost, as soon as they stop these diets.

On the other hand of the spectrum are the gyms, their super expensive, muscular trainers, heavy, painful and often injurious weight training and punishing floor exercises, bad diets prescribed by the trainer or inexperienced dieticians and expensive protein powders. They unleash injuries and misery on their hapless clients!

That is why hardly anyone loses weight at all in gyms, even short term!

That is the reason why you should choose the best weight loss program, in Pune, or from anywhere else, very carefully so that you can eliminate all the possible risk factors!

Any number of people under my care world over can confirm this!

This is the exact treatment that we plan and inspire people to follow, supervise and advise them on day to day basis and guide them till they reach their goals of weight and health, overcome their illnesses and become slim and healthy! These people get lifetime support for maintenance, too!
