Step 5: Lifestyle Change – Meet a ‘Healthy YOU’
1 – Weight Management (weight loss and weight gain):
Obesity, particularly central obesity is being recognized as an underlying factor for most of the non-communicable diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, atherosclerosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), fatty liver, gout, kidney stones and many more. By reducing the excess weight (fat mass) especially your belly fat, one can prevent the onset of these non-communicable diseases.
Obesity also worsens the symptoms of those suffering from any form of arthritis or joint pain. Many individuals have restricted movements. By shedding the extra kilos, one can experience symptomatic relief and to some extent movements can be restored.
On the other hand, some individuals are underweight and often complain of lethargy, tiredness, lack of concentration and so on. These symptoms may not appear devastating but can potentially affect your academic performance and work productivity. By having a well-balanced diet, you can refill your body with key nutrients, some muscle mass and reach your ideal body weight as well as boost your performance.
2 – Diabetes and Other Endocrine Disorders:
There is no cure for diabetes, hypo/hyperthyroidism and PCOS. Nevertheless, a structured lifestyle management can definitely help one lead a normal life and prevent the complications in spite of the disorder/s.
3 – Hypertension:
Hypertension and dyslipidemia (high cholesterol levels) can be managed well with a healthy lifestyle. This can also help prevent complications such as atherosclerosis and stroke in the future.
4 – Kidney Disorders:
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a progressive condition. One can delay the progression by regulating several factors such as proteins, electrolytes (sodium, potassium, phosphorus) and fluid intake.
5 – Digestive Disorders:
Several behavioural and lifestyle issues may lead to common problems such as acidity, gastroesophageal reflux disorder, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic constipation and diverticular disease. Individuals suffering from these also suffer from multinutrient deficiencies. Behaviour modification along with lifestyle management can address these issues.
6 – Pregnancy and Lactation:
Two most beautiful periods of any woman’s life! But can be equally challenging as well. Proper nutrition before, during and post pregnancy is essential for a healthy baby and a healthy mother.
7 – Children and Adolescents:
Childhood is the foundation stone in terms of eating behaviour and healthy food choices. A healthy child is more likely to be a healthy adult.

Note: There is no short cut for success. Likewise, there is no short cut for making a lifestyle change. We believe in ‘Slow and steady wins the race’. Crash diets, FADS and starvation may initially help you in weight loss. But do remember the benefit is often short-lived and comes at an expense of your body’s metabolism. We propagate healthy ways of bringing about a behaviour and/or lifestyle change which you can practice in the long-term.
