Good things come to those who wait..But Bad things come to those who “weight”

Rich Food

Let the food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food   Hippocrates

Life & Death are in the power of your own tongue

No No…… I am not talking of the proverb 18:21 which warns us about our words coming from our tongue that can either speak life or that can speak death.Bible Hub

Just relax.

I am not talking of corona pandemic.Enough is already said.

I am talking about our present day life style with reference to our food habits and the way we eat and not giving enough time gap between mouth & Hand while eating and at the same time addicted to junk food ( binge eating ) !! BED

By now you know that I am talking about obesity.


“Take charge,Don’t be Large” Daniel Worona.

Is obesity a disease ?

Yes my friend, obesity is a chronic disease. Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health. Obesity

Why this happens ?

  1. Excessive food intake
  2. Lack of exercise
  3. Genetic susceptibility

Any problem being obese?

Being overweight is not a problem except it can cause low esteem. Body-shame

“Losing confidence in one’s body is to lose confidence in oneself “

Being obese is altogether a different matter.
And my friend you are inviting trouble by being obese.

You may suffer from one of the following and die too young.Do you wish this to happen ?

  1. Cardio vascular diseases.
  2. Diabetes
  3. High blood pressure
  4. Dyslipidemia

I am not talking the details of various measures to be taken etc to prevent obesity or complications of the diseases from obesity, that can happen.

I am trying to simplify the discussion.

Any recipe to lose weight?

I know….Your immediate thoughts are on Dieting & Hitting the Gym.

A recipe has no soul.Ask the cook.You must bring soul to the Recipe Thomas Keller

My friend don’t fall prey to marketing gimmicks.No amount of dieting & gym going to help you in the long run.

Losing weight does not have a recipe.Losing weight depends on your soul.

Every obese person has to evolve their own recipe

But I can provide you some basic ideas and you can modify according to your needs.

  • Fruits & vegetables
  • Exercise 3 times a week,no need to hit gym,simple walking and jogging will do
  • No smoking
  • No drinking
  • No sugar
  • No junk foods
  • Avoid processed food.

The point I wish to hammer out is DIETING DOES NOT WORK.The more food items you
restrict,you tend to eat more and you prefer to eat junk even more.Even if you combine with Gym….still it won’t work. Statistics show that,those who diet tend to put on weight in the long run and it’s true.

Eat, only when you are hungry.Stop eating exactly at that point when brain sends signals that your stomach is full.

Never allow yourself to be too hungry.Otherwise Over eating happens.

Next you start thinking of what to eat.Include greens and fruits, avoid sugar at any cost,as I mentioned above.

Remember to say No to three food items.1.Sugar 2.Salt & 3.processed food.

Remember to walk or jog thrice a week for 30 minutes.

Take home points

1.Preventing wait gain is much easier than steps to be taken for weight loss.

2.Eat only when you are hungry and stop when you feel full.Don’t create situations where you are too hungry

3.Dieting is a waste of time,energy & money.Instead have control on your mind.

4.Under take minimum,but regular exercises without taxing your dear body.

“Thou shouldst eat to live; not live to eat.” Socrates

I dedicate this post to my online friend who is always worried about being obese and into dieting…….My friend remember that…..dieting doesn’t help,I repeat dieting won’t help.

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
