Dr. Sandeep Grewal talks to Alexander “The Engineer” Lim, host of AuthorStory by alvinwriter.com about his book, Fat-Me Not: Weight Loss Diet of the Future, which he co-authored with Dr. Myo N Mwe.
“Weight loss happens because of the changes in the diet.” ~Dr. Sandeep Grewal
Dr. Grewal remarked that consuming beverages that are rich in sugar, such as sodas, is merely about the calories in that drink, but in reality, consuming either drinks that rich in sugar or eating foods with a mix of fat and sugar (such as cakes), based on research done on lab rats (which are used because their bodies mimic the reactions of human bodies), probably make the imbiber of such drinks eat more, to the point of displaying binge eating behavior, than they would have if they didn’t take that drink or eat that particular type of food. Although the mechanism for this trigger is still being researched, Dr. Grewal opines that this has something to do with the weight regulating centers within our brain, which is located within our hypothalamus.
Dr. Grewal didn’t know the exact cost of obesity to the health system of the United States, but he noted that two out of three people are fat and one out of three are obese in the United States, compared to Japan, where only one out of ten people are obese, which means that obesity is presently an epidemic in the United States. He also notes that fat cells secrete inflammatory chemicals which cause pain throughout the body, hence the reason why obese people feel sore all over, all the time.
SlimPlate System as an easy way for people to lose weight in a way that they wouldn’t need to learn all the nutritional science behind such. Where Dr. Grewal is concerned, the three criteria for a good weight loss system are: it should be easy to do, it should allow real food to be consumed and that it changes eating habits. The SlimPlate System consists of four steps designed to, within a period of four months, ultimately enable someone to eat healthy for the long term, rather than just consuming a diet just for the short term and then reverting back to previous dietary habits once that diet is done. Dr. Grewal remarked that the SlimPlate System has enabled people to lose anywhere from fourteen to twenty-three pounds in three months while still consuming food they were familiar with.
Dr. Grewal recommends that people not skip any meals, and, indeed, the SlimPlate System is designed around people eating three major meals and then snacking twice between meals, as eating food once every four hours boosts metabolism. Skipping breakfast, he remarks, results in the body experiencing a sixteen-hour fast that reduces the body’s metabolism by up to 50%.
