The Weight Epidemic

The nutritionist spoke on how people today are affected by weight loss/gain more than living a disease-free, healthy life. She also points this out in her books stating that weight is just a number, and how chasing the weight concept can make you lose lean muscle and bone weight.

This gradual loss of muscle and bone could lead to insulin resistance–a condition where cells fail to respond to the standard actions of the insulin hormone and makes one susceptible to diseases like Diabetes, PCOD, and others.

Another topic Rujuta touched was that of PCOD and gestational diabetes syndrome, saying that being aware of the same is necessary in addition to paying close attention to “the relation of your spine to the other parts of your body, which tend to put on weight easily.”healthy
