Biography: Fiji Antony
Weight gain gradually happens over time during different life stages of a human being’s life. Once it gains over the standard requirement as per age, sex and anthropometry of a human being, it is commonly known as overweight. The most important factor to avoid this tendency is adaptation of change in cooking and life style changes which should not be difficult to adjust. Over many years, in this part of the world which is home to hundreds of nationalities, I learned as more flexible and regional the diet as per their cuisine; the better is going to be the outcome. The department of dietetics conducted a study on patients who consulted in OPD from May 2017 to May 2018; the data collected were from patient records. Weight reduction of 2 kg or more in a month is well maintained and consistent in follow ups. The weight reduction rate may be slow but the weight maintenance is better and thus prevents weight regain. As per the available data gathered we can even conclude those reduced weight with altered life style, modified own diet were able to maintain the weight. The data also clarifies further complication of metabolic syndrome which can be controlled as well with modified diet and exercise. All those who already have clinical conditions like DM, dyslipidemia were able to control the respective complications even though not much changes in weight.
