Case study - 2

Hello Healthizens,

Mentioning the success stories has two benefits -
1) People get motivated to loose weight.
2) People get motivated to loose weight through proper Diet and Exercise!

This is the story of a student who had just finished the exams. With no tutions till 12th Standard Client no XX was for sure a very intelligent girl and a sweet person to talk to.
She came with her father who was very keen on her weight loss but with proper diet and exercise only - It was this combination of theirs that led them to come to a Diet professional which is indeed 1000 times better than crash dieting!

Age -17 Weight - 102 kgs Height - 5'5.5" Month of consultation - April '14

Reasons of weight gain
1) Tendency to gain weight since childhood.
2) Erratic study hours.
3) Active in physical activities since childhood but no physical activity during 11th and 12th std.
4) No signs of dullness of Lethargy
5) No abnormal hunger patterns.

With Proper diet and exercise she took almost 6 months to shed this extra weight and come down to 80 kgs.
And is still reducing.
This is indeed very Impressive!

Thankyou for being a dedicated client and Thanks to her family for supporting her and not letting her go for Crash Diets!

Eat Healthy, Stay Healthy, SHINE!

MSG in a nutshell - Part 1

History -
Was initially derived from seaweed in Japan. 
Is used as a taste enhancer.
Is sodium salt of Amino acid - Glutamic acid.

What does it do-
May lead to 

1) Frequent headaches & Brain problems (MSG leads to excess production of Dopamine in our brain causing Brain to be overworked and our tongue and our body addicted to the taste, wanting to come back again and again)

2) Bloating (Because its the sodium salt - More sodium in food = Bloating)

3) Hypertension (Heightened Hypertension)

4) Weight gain (So now you know why outside food makes you gain weight!!)

5) Liver Inflammation (because Liver tries to detoxify our body by removing the MSG)

6) General Weakness and Lethargy

8) Interferes with vision (retinal cells)

9) Nervous disorders

10) Different types of allergies and or increased susceptibility to infections.

Why do you need to worry-

Beause MSG is present in almost every packaged food, ready to eat food, outside food, if not by the name MSG then by 40 other names.

What to do?

Opt for fresh homemade food. If not fresh even a food cooked at home before 6-7 hours is nutritionally better and less damaging for your body than Fresh Out side Food.
Homemade snacks (fried versions) are also a good option to keep as ready to eat snacks.

to be discussed in Part 2
