Warm greetings to all my readers. We have reached the final chapter of our series. A new series will be presented from next week. 

Q1: Hi Akshita, most of your questions related to weight loss. I just wanted to know if you help in increasing weight as well?

Ans: Yes, I do help in weight gain as well. The focus is on protein mass gain whereas fat gain is kept as less as possible.

Q2: Hello, I have a touring job. I often have to fly a lot and after every flight, there is a sudden weakness. I am unable to understand. My haemoglobin and blood pressure both are normal. Kindly help? 

Ans: Hi, the reason for your weakness is dehydration. In a 2hour flight, we lose somewhere around 1 litre of water from our body. Try increasing water intake, this will help.

Q3: Hi, I have often observed that most of your suggestions lay emphasis on hydration. I drink around 1-1.5 litre water every day but I also consume around 4-5 cups of green tea. Is my water intake optimum or do I need to improve? 

Ans: First of all I would like to tell you the recommendation per day. It is 3 litres of water. The tea/coffee/cold drinks don’t get counted in the water category. In fact, they are dehydration so if you are consuming 4-5 cups green tea increase your water intake to at least 3-3.5 litre per day.

Q4: What is PCOD, I read it in one of your articles that it leads to sudden weight gain please explain? 

Ans: PCOD stand for POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN DISORDER. A cyst is observed in the ovaries which leads to periods irregularity and other hormonal changes. The most obvious change is weight gain. But the good part about this is that it is totally reversible by weight loss.
