Daily Health Gyan

Some visitor with justifiable irritation asked me why I was always writing so much about weight loss .. well, it is a matter of deep concern for most people. Also, when people come for a yoga class, they want a complete package with what they would pay through their noses elsewhere in a spa, a nutritionist or a gym:) So I have to be on my toes about queries, plus it interests me because in yoga, specifically Hatha Yoga Pradipika, states one of the signs of a good yoga practice is a thin, glowing body:) So, yes, why not weight loss?

So, for those who love popping pills, read somewhere that steroids (used for respiratory ailments or hormone issues) or in gym for muscle bulking, contraceptive pills, anti-depressants (did u know??), anti-histamines (used to control allergic reactions) can cause weight gain. U must check with your doctor for an alternative. Yes, doctors do come with halo (yes, yes, we placed them there) but even god can be questioned!
