JAMMU, Oct 2: Everyone knows the key to losing weight: Eat less and exercise more. Sounds simple enough, but in the context of real life and its demands, it can be anything but simple. Being overweight or obese kills your energy level and can make everyday tasks an ordeal. To stay fit and maintain your shape a regular workout helps a lot. But when it comes to losing weight and getting back in shape, a regular workout or exercise routine alone won’t suffice. You will have to take it a step further and take care of your diet too, in order to lose weight.
To make the people of Jammu city keep fit and healthy, a Nutrition and Diet Counselling OPD Clinic was recently started at SDDM Hospital in Channi Himmat area of Jammu city.
With its rich and varied experience, Gurmeet Gujral Masters in Dietetics, Certified Food Nutritionist and Executive Member IDA (J&K Chapter),  provided customized diet plans in weight loss, weight gain and Therapeutic or Clinical Diet programme with face-to-face consultation.
He said “In this 21st Century, the people who are interested in losing weight quickly and safely, will begin the diet plan. We help you in losing weight in a healthy and proper way which does not involve starvation or deprivation of any food containing essential  vitamins. Our motto is to eat more to weigh less. The right foods help you to reduce your weight.”
While talking about  gaining weight, Gurmeet said, “losing weight is tough, but gaining weight could be toughe. Proper diet, focussed goals and exercise are some things that can help even the skinniest among us to put on some weight. Eating junk food like burgers and pizza may help you get more calories, but you may not be able to digest everything if you don’t supplement them with fruits and vegetables rich in fibre.”
