A toned tummy can be considered one of the hallmarks of a healthy body. However, getting rid of abdominal fat and that belly bulge can be difficult. Belly fat is not only unsightly; it also raises the chance of developing health issues like diabetes, blood pressure, and dementia at an early age. There are many causes of tummy fat, like a dip in physical activity, stress, unhealthy eating habits, menopause, a slow metabolic rate, improper digestion and genetics.
With obesity and related health disorders on the rise worldwide, it’s now more important than ever to keep a check on your weight and make sure you stay healthy. Current fast-paced lifestyles make it difficult to do so. Because of our busy schedules we tend to opt for easily available processed foods rather than wholesome organic foods. It’s no surprise then that 60% of the nation’s population is overweight.
The earliest records of liposuction date back to 1920, when French surgeon Charles Dujarier introduced the concept of body contouring through suction. However, the concept was largely forgotten for years after his procedure caused gangrene in the leg of a model. Slimming treatments have come a long way since then. And though modern liposuction is a great improvement on its namesake, there are still better ways to tackle stubborn body fat today.
On average, we all put at least an hour every day into our appearances and personal grooming. After all, being clean, fresh, and well-dressed not only helps you look better, but help you feel better too. While good grooming can help boost your mood and your confidence, there is much more to personal maintenance than just that.
When the monsoons arrive, we all rejoice, as the rains are a pleasant respite from the summer heat. Once the rains start, we’re tempted to enjoy a few of our favourite monsoon foods like hot samosas and bhajiyas, and maybe even a cup or two of hot chocolate. Unfortunately, the monsoons also bring with them viral infections, a lowered immunity, and unhygienic food. Digestive diseases are rampant, and poor digestion can lead to a phenomenon known as cellular starvation, which lowers our metabolism and increases our fat storage. This lowered metabolism, coupled with snacking on fried foods and chocolate can be quite harmful to our bodies.

In the 21st century, obesity has alarmingly affected 5% of the country’s population. A recent study mapping global malnutrition trends has revealed that India has the third-highest number of obese and overweight people (11 % of adolescents, and 20 % of all adults) after US and China.
Have you ever noticed that some of the good things in life only happen once every year? Think, New Year, Diwali, Holi, Christmas and the one that’s quite personal, our Birthday. That makes it a pretty special event. It’s strictly limited, its day is non-negotiable (yes, you still have to go to work) and it’s something you will receive for the rest of your life. So why do we lose the magic of celebrating our birthdays as we get older? Note, this is a generalization, but if you ask the people that are around you, I think they will agree with this. As one becomes older, birthdays usually becomes a time of intense self-reflection: where am I in my life, where do I want to be, Am I Fit & Healthy, what could I improve?
