Stop blaming the victim or yourself for your weight gain
What went wrong with our diet?
Instead of blaming the victim for obesity, or yourself for obesity, it is important to understand what drives the weight gain, such as insulin resistance that affects up to 71 percent of the entire population out of which 35 percent already have metabolic syndrome.
With over 20,000 books written on this topic with so much misleading information, let a trained practicing weight loss physician, Dr Prab R. Tumpati,MD educate you on the true science and art of obesity medicine.
Why the food pyramid failed?
Metabolic starvation in the obese
Most people that gain weight are not on a mission to gain weight intentionally. It is the paradoxical metabolic starvation that happens in the obese due to insulin resistance with a compensatory increase in the anabolic hormone called insulin that drives weight gain, hunger and metabolic starvation leading to food cravings, and weight gain!

Ted Talks: Why blaming the obese is blaming the victim?
'''Stop blaming the victim for Obesity'''
Keeping a healthy weight is crucial. If you are underweight, overweight, or obese, you may have a higher risk of certain health problems.
About two thirds of adults in the U.S. are overweight or obese. Achieving a healthy weight can help you control your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. It might also help you prevent weight-related diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and some cancers.
Unlike the government websites that keep telling you it is your fault for weight loss, such as the useless and over simplistic "eat less, exercise more, calories in, calories out", we go deeper and look at the real causes of weight gain -
- what really makes one crave foods?
- What really causes the metabolic starvation despite the excess weight?
- What really builds the body?
Tips for weight loss

Understand the causes of weight gain and obesity. One of the most important causes of weight gain is actually a process called [insulin resistance]] that not only causes weight gain but also makes you go in to metabolic starvation due to compensation of the body to insulin resistance.
Find a weight loss program
Once you decide to lose weight, the next step is to find the right weight loss program for you.
