In India prevalence of obesity is reaching epidemic levels making India as the ‘third most obese country’ in the world. Concurrent with this rise are increase in numerous obesity-associated diseases including heart disease, certain types of cancer, and diabetes. This makes weight loss an important factor in preventing the onset of these diseases and maintaining healthy lifestyle. Diets, diet clinics, gyms, health farms, websites, books, supplements, nutrition information, awareness, lifestyle coaches and trainers are growing at an unprecedented rate and preventive health is at an all time high.
The practice of dieting has become an epidemic. Everyone is looking out at getting to the perfect diet for that perfect body. The fact however, is that there is no perfect diet or one solution. Had there been one, someone would have come up with a formula by now.
From low calorie, low fat, low carb, good carb, to high protein, blood group, Atkin’s, General Motors (GM diet), South Beach, Dunkan or the Paleo diet and the likes, nothing has truly worked. The truth is that when it comes to diet solutions – one size just cannot fit all. We are all different with respect to our ethnicity, genetics, family history, gender, age, health status (mental, physical and spiritual health), lifestyles and preferences. Thereby we also differ in what foods we tolerate or are sensitive to. So we really cannot reduce so many complexities into one diet or diet book. This explains the failure of diets across the world in curbing the epidemic of obesity.
Weight management has to be a daily affair, just like time or money management. A successful diet is one that gets you to achieve your target weight along with helping you sustain it. You will get the benefits of a trim body only until you follow the discipline. So follow the path you can live with- understand food, your body, your unique needs and challenges. The key is a “sustainable solution” for weight loss. In other words, the solution is in making it a way of life- the true meaning of the Greek word “Diet”.
For a few weight gain is a goal. Being underweight is also an equally disturbing issue for some people.
