Dr. Majari describes the common causes of Obesity in the present times

Hi, I am Dr. Manjiri Puraniks and I am practicing obesity for last 15 to 20 years. Most of the times in my clinical practice I come across a lot of patients who comments a doctor why is it that I am fat.

What are the causes of obesity?

 Well, there are many all of us know that main important cause of obesity or weight gain or fat gain is a lifestyle. Today we are not exercising we are eating all kinds of junk food. Besides that, there are many other things. Then there are social and there are cultural factors. It is a lack of sleep, we are indulging in smoking, alcohol and a very important factor we are missing out is a genetic factor. Lots of times you will see that your parents, parents side some relatives they are obese. So Genetic factor is very important in obesity. A lot of genes have been identified which cause obesity. So you may be under right kind of diet, you might be exercising but you tend to be overweight.

Why is it that people are bothered about obesity. Is it because I don't look good? Is it because of the cosmetic reasons. Well, there is a lot more to it. Obesity is 2nd most Health hazard in terms of mortality. It is the 2nd most reason of overall death all over the world. Today it is called as endemic. It is spreading like an infectious disease. Any organ in the body you name it and it gets affected because of the obesity. You are more prone to high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, paralysis, cancer, gout, you get back ache, you have any problems.

When you are very very obese you get Breathless you have respiratory diseases then all the systems in the body are affected, there is high cholesterol and the most important is diabetes. India is becoming the capital of diabetes and the amount of mortality because of diabetes that is the metabolic disorders is so high that today I think diabetes and obesity they have become like 1 disease which is called diabesity. So we must reduce how our weight our fat especially under the region around tummy only because we have to reduce the risk of diabetes, blood pressure and heart attack.

For more information on what is obesity, what are the causes and why it is important to reduce weight to reduce please watch more videos on lybrate.com.

How I can lose my weight and how to make six pack abs. And how to increase height without any difficulty!

How I can lose my weight and how to make six pack abs. And how to increase height without any difficulty!
Being a dietitian my views: there is no single diet chart for everyone. To plan a specific diet we do collect lot of information like height, weight, food frequency, digestive history, medical history, likes, dislike, lifestyle, eating habits. Remember one thing to follow a diet it should be personalized according to person's body type and not generalized. Starting with there is no pills or powder or shake which can help you to lose weight in a healthy way. To lose weight eat an hour within walking up and dinner at least 2 hours before you sleep. Avoiding eating anything after dinner. Breakfast should be your king size have good complex carbohydrates and protein rich. Eat every 2 hours small frequent meal do help in weight loss. And do not overeat. One can come to ideal body weight with few lifestyle modification. Have green tea only 2 cups a day. For exercise I would say diet plays 80 % role and exercise plays 20 % role in losing weight. Personal advise on gym. You should not make your body habituated with machines rather do simple walk or surya namaskar or planks. So only with healthy eating one can lose weight.

And half an hour exercise should include in your daily routine. You should include protein rich and low fat diet in your food. Start eating green leafy vegetables and fruits. Avoid Mango and grapes. Say no to oily food. And start drinking warm water in the morning. Surely you will get benefitted.

How I can reduce my weight without doing difficult exercise and what should I take in my diet.

How I can reduce my weight without doing difficult exercise and what should I take in my diet.
Hi - incorporate more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into your diet while eliminating unhealthy foods. - if you are working or studying away from home, try to pack healthy lunch and snacks for yourself to avoid eating unhealthy food daily. - don't eat straight from the packet - use a plate or bowl to control how much you eat. - don't delay or skip meals. - cut down your consumption of aerated drinks and sodas. - drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Drink water after waking up and before sleeping. Being dehydrated may make you feel like you're hungry, so it is important to stay hydrated. - have homemade fruit and vegetable juices - eat 5-6 small healthy meals every 2-3 hours, every day, instead of having a few big ones. This regulates your blood sugar level and your metabolism. - don't skip breakfast, instead, make it rich with complex carbohydrates and proteins, so it can provide you with energy to get through the day. Try to include the following as your morning breakfast, oats porridge, eggs on multigrain toast or daliya with sprouts. - avoid artificial sweeteners in processed foods. - eat slowly as it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to register if you're full or not. Eating too fast leads to overeating, so chew slowly to digest your food better and control how much you eat. - use a smaller plate to control your portion sizes and avoid overeating. - know your cravings and do not snack when you're emotional. It is said that you crave crunchy and savory food when you're stressed, frustrated or lonely. Figure out what you crave and replace them with healthier alternatives. - do not eat mindlessly; concentrate on your food instead of watching tv or playing with your phone to avoid overeating.

To start with avoid simple sugars as far as possible like sugar, jaggery, honey, sweets, candies, chocolates, cold drinks etc. 'Eat Out' less, avoid junk and have good quantity of fresh foods which are not processed like fruits, vegetables, soups, salads, nuts, low fat milk, curd etc. Gradually, focus on higher protein intake, lower fat and restrict carbohydrates to high fibre foods only. Combine these dietary changes with 45 mins to 1 hour play/walk / exercise. If you need us to help you with proper customised Diet plans for weight loss, you can opt for our online program or contact us through Lybrate' private consult'

Hello, good that you are health conscious, weight of 85kgs may include your bone weight and other good fatty acids also. Don't worry about weight, see that are you healthy enough or not, if you have a tired ness frequently, by waking for 5 mins you feel like so tired, then you have to think of weight. But I recommend, take more water in your diet and do physiacal exercise. Not a gym by default, but small things like, avoding bike if you can walk, some times play more out door games. Lets us know if we can add more info to this. Happy to serve you.
