Weight loss drugs and related weight loss remedies could be counter-productive as researchers, including an Indian-origin person, have found that those who believe in such remedies end up gaining more weight.
Being overweight is a stigma in our society. Aren`t overweight people human beings? Why do people have wrong notions about fat people? I am overweight but does that necessarily mean that I am unhealthy? Obesity is a disease afflicting children in urban population and definitely on the rise in India. And being fat also does not imply being obese.
