'DO FATS MAKE YOU FAT? Many times, medical doctors, food & nutrition experts and fitness gurus advocate a diet low in fat to reduce the chances of weight gain and stay healthy. We are a fat-fearing community and we believe that eating fat makes us fat. Interestingly, fat is the only nutrient group used to describe a person. An overweight person is a ‘fat guy’ but a healthy person is never a 'vitamin guy'. What many fail to address was the difference between the dangers of low quality fat and health benefits of good fat.

'Targetting weight loss ' is not the way to lose weight Trying to lose weight is the worst possible way to lose weight. The key to obesity management is to aim for optimal health and in that process you lose weight automatically. Slimming down is a mere by product of your journey towards well-being. There is a necessity to rethink obesity as a health issue rather than a cosmetic issue. Many rapid weight loss fads and schemes fail primarily because they are short term programs with conflicting recommendations. But don’t be disheartened and don’t surrender yet. Take it one step at a time and EXIT THE WAY YOU ENTERED.
