Oprah weight loss tips impractical - Subodh Gupta

E-mail Print PDF

Oprah Winfrey's diet tricks for weight loss are not workable according to the celebrity yoga trainer and weight loss consultant Subodh Gupta.


Oprah Winfrey announced she has lost 26 pounds — all while continuing to eat bread and on a live Web-call exclusively for Weight Watchers members.


She revealed some of her greatest tips but "they are useless" says celebrity yoga trainer Subodh Gupta.


For example, Oprah suggested: To satisfy your craving: "I love jicama because you get a crunch," she said. The juicy flesh has a sweet, nutty flavor and a satisfying crunch. So if you have a craving want to overeat food, jicama is a great replacement option.


However Subodh said, I wish if the weight loss solution was so simple as Oprah incorrectly suggested because when craving starts, it quickly overpowers the mind and only when you end up overeating, you realised maybe you shouldn't have but by then you feel even more unhappy.


So according to Subodh Gupta craving would result in food being overeaten even before the thought of Jicama will strike your mind.


Similarly, Oprah suggested her other tricks such as "Go with seafood as often as possible", "Make spaghetti squash taste more like real spaghetti", "The secret to making mashed cauliflower just as good as mashed potatoes",

"Drink more water!", etc.


Again Subodh Gupta said,  "all these tips are only workable if your mind is under perfect control and only then you can make conscious choice and control craving." He added emotional stress is the main culprit and for long lasting weight loss solution, it is very important to manage emotional stress or all the tips won't be practical.


Subodh Gupta suggested the regular practice of yoga and meditation as a stable and a long-term solution to control the mind, effectively manage the body weight and complete well being.


Subodh Gupta is yoga trainer and a holistic health consultant and conducts private yoga classes in Chelsea and Kensington London.

Tax on sugary drinks a positive step in managing obesity : Subodh Gupta

E-mail Print PDF

Subodh GuptaGeorge Osborne tax on sugary drinks a very positive step in controlling obesity and managing associated illnesses according to Subodh Gupta celebrity yoga instructor and the founder of Obesity Campaign UK.

Subodh said, "In the UK, fattest nation in Europe, one-third of children and two-thirds of adults are overweight or obese, so Osborne tax on sugary drinks is a positive step in the fight against obesity".



He added, "Some of the soft drinks products can have up to 210 calories in each 500 ml bottle along with 53 g of sugar, flavouring (including caffeine) and phosphoric acid while other brand products may have fewer calories and sugar but the high amount of Sweeteners, Colour, Preservative (sodium Benzoate), Citric acid along with Phosphoric acid.


Highly refined sugar is nothing else but chemicals and sugar makes us fat, rot teeth, disrupt digestion. It is addictive and Sugar-sweetened drink are linked with Child Obesity


Obesity also increases cancer risk as per research and obese women have around one in four risk of developing cancer linked to weight gain in their lifetime.


Soft drinks firms are hitting back at sugar tax plan although the tax on sugary drinks, will only take effect in two years’ time and will only apply to those drinks which are containing more than 5g of sugar per 100ml and with a higher rate applying above 8g per 100ml, and is aimed at reducing sugar levels in young generation body.


Osborne said: “I am not prepared to look back at my time here in this parliament doing this job, and say to my children’s generation, ‘I’m sorry, we knew there was a problem with sugary drinks, we knew it caused disease, but we ducked the difficult decisions and we did nothing".

Ban the Gastric Bypass operation petition launched

Ban the gastric bypass operation

UK and other developed nations are grippled with the obesity epidemic however operation such as Gastric Bypass are not the solution. Often misleading benefits of weight loss surgery are publicized and innocent patients end up suffering.

Now a new petition has been launched in the UK to ban the dangerous Gastric Bypass operation.

According to the petition "Solution for the ever growing obesity issues in the UK seems to be the popular Gastric Bypass. On the 15th June 2014 my mother lost her life due to

the many complications she suffered after undergoing bypass surgery in 2011. An operation which is so dangerous should not be allowed."

It is also mentioned that "After Gastric Bypass surgery 15% of all patients will suffer with severe complications for the rest of their lives, some, resulting in death. Our stomachs are our survival tool for obtaining nutrients to keep us alive. Without it, our other organs begin to lose out on these nutrients and no amount of weight loss will make up for the internal damage our bodies suffer due to mal absorption. The benefits can never outweigh the risks of this operation and the list of complications are endless."


The points highlighted by the petitioners make sense and she tried to alert others who are unaware of the dangers of Gastric Bypass operations side effect.


Obesity Campaign UK suggest there should be ban on all kind of weight loss surgery including Gastric Bypass unless that is only measure left to save life otherwise healthy lifestyle should be the only choice which should be promoted.


According to the celebrity yoga instructor Subodh Gupta, almost all weight loss surgeries are risky and not needed and unnecessary for tackling obesity and there benefits propagated are misleading instead all one need to fight obesity is healthy food.



Swallowing a balloon another useless idea to fight obesity

E-mail Print PDF

Subodh GuptaGastric balloon a new useless method to fight obesity is being approved in the UK.


Balloon fills up the stomach and then pops itself after four months is thought as a tool to counter the obesity epidemic. As of now the only positive aspect of this method seems to be the fact that no surgery is required to insert or remove it as patient swallows a tiny capsule containing the deflated balloon, which is made from a delicate polymer film.


Once the capsule is reached the stomach the balloon is filled with water and occupies a large part of the stomach hope to reducing appetite.


After four months, a valve in the polymer film opens and the balloon collapses, passing out through the digestive system and allowing the patient to return to a normal calorie intake.



The first limitation of the approach is that it has been tested on only 34 man and women.  The second limitation is that it is doing nothing to strengthen the mental will power of the patients. So after four months either pateints either again spend money

or return back to same old eating habits. The third limitation is about how people feel having a foreign object into their body.


Obesity is becoming epidemic indeed but instead of all the superficial method which involves dangerous method and risk to people life, free and healthy lifestyle solution should only be promoted.

They were 47 percent more likely to experience a fracture during 12 years of follow-up compared to those who did not have surgery.
