Doctors say that the risk of type-2 diabetes increases with increasing body weight. To combat obesity, losing weight and maintaining an ideal weight is the right step towards reducing the harm. According to doctors, it is 3 to 7 times more likely in obese people than normal-weight people to get diabetes.

Obesity And Overall Health

When our weight increases, we should gain more strength. This is a fundamental medical principle. If we gain weight and feel weak, then it is a disease, and when we lose weight and increase stamina, we recover from the disease. Dr KK Aggarwal, President CMAAO, HCFI and Past National President IMA says, "Weight should not increase more than five kilograms after the age of 20. After that. The weight gain will only be due to the accumulation of fat, which produces insulin resistance. Insulin resistance does not allow food to be converted into energy. In this situation, what you eat turns into fat. Since it does not change in energy, you feel weakness."

  • Aim to be physically active for about 30 to 45 minutes every day. Do not use refined sugar in any form as it can be absorbed more quickly in the blood and can cause further problems.
  • Reduce stress with meditation and yoga.
  • Ensure that you sleep well and maintain a proper cycle to avoid excess weight gain. Do not think of going on crash diets. Existing diseases may not make sudden weight gain an easy process.
