In conversation with Nikhil Arora and Sharath Toopran  of Transfin. for an hour long discussion on:


The Bare-Bones (slurrp!) of Good Nutrition


I begin by addressing some recurrent queries posed by my patients - Why do we crave fats? Why do we regain the lost weight? Is veganism the way to go? How healthy is red meat?


I go on to talk about the basics of nutrition, discussing how the moderate consumption of any nutrient is the most optimum and how to engineer a 'balanced diet'.


Fitness 101


We move on to discuss exercise and fitness. What have we gotten wrong about fitness and exercise? Where do we begin from? What are some cost-effective alternatives to the gym? How do we think of diet and exercise in parallel? 


What's Wrong with India's Healthcare?


Lancet, an acclaimed medical journal recently spoke of the rising risk of physical violence on doctors. I talk about how and why a reputed profession has come under attack in the recent past.


Hope you enjoy listening in. I may do this again in the future, so do drop in any questions or clarifications on nutrition and fitness that you may like me to address in the Comment section below.
