So wrong, at so many levels!
On one side, we have this crazy epidemic of obesity amongst all social classes, masses and ages. On the other side, the crazy onslaught of books written to lose weight, kilos, inches, and the works. Clinics, doctors, dietitians, vaidyas, gyms, quacks who will all promise quick fixes and seemingly no effort involved methods. As long as you shell out the moolah, and indulge in the self damage.
GET REAL, WORLD
We all know
- Nothing in life comes so easy
- Things that come easy often come the wrong way
- If its too good to be true, its probably not!
- What food is not nice for us
- What is good food
- That we all need physical exercise
Yet, why do we all fall pray to these antics? I know a crazily famous “slimming doctor” who “dissolves people’s fat” and puts them on super restrictive diets like lime juice, lauki juice, excessive water and cucumbers. Says you won’t feel weak with this diet. Slowly “allows” you to start eating. The fallacy of this approach is so blaring obvious!
When someone drills in you you won’t be tired, you either won’t be (mind over body) or you won’t acknowledge. And you obviously lose weight quickly, when you are on a liquid diet. And then you have to follow a life long of a ridiculously restricted diet, which you obviously cannot. So you agree, that doctor helped you lose all the weight, but you gained because you didn’t follow the diet. You blame yourself, not the impractical diet for your weight gain. Doctor wins clients, you lose money, some weight and a lot of confidence.
I like the other dietician a bit more. One who believes in eating Indian, eating all you like but watching portions, timings etc.
More will follow in further posts!
