Hi doctor I am 24 year old male. I have a hectic working schedule due to which I cannot exercise regularly. I am getting fatter. How should I reduce my weight. It is already 80 kg.
My wife (67ys) is suffering from knee pain in bboth the legs. Doctors suggested operation to both. She is slightly overweight. Is it advisable to go for reduction of weight and take alternate medicines (homeo. Ayurv). Weight is the culprit. Can you suggest weight reduction programme before we opt for surgery?

How many meals should you really have in a day?
With the advancement in nutritional science, researchers have realised that lesser gap between meals means lesser-stored fat which in turn also helps to control blood sugar, boost metabolism and aids in weight management. After three hours of a meal our blood sugar starts falling and after four hours the digestion is complete. After 5 hours we are ready to gobble up whatever comes in our way as the body is looking for a way to refuel. This may lead to consuming high-calorie food.
Eating at regular intervals can save you from binging, keep your blood sugar level stable and help you stay energised. Also, digestion itself is work for the body and the activity leads to burning calories. However, one needs to be careful and not consume very high-calorie meals as that would increase the risk of chronic diseases.
Since everybody is different, there cannot be a set number of meals prescribed for everyone. It depends on when a person feels hungry and how that person would like to deal with it. But you need to understand your body's need for replenishment and provide the nourishment it requires. Hence, according to your body's requirement you should have small meals at short intervals which could range from six to eight in a day.
