User:hi doctor
Doctor:please proceed with the query
User:I have problem with food digestion. Most of the time, I get bloting kind of feeling in my stomach. I used to do regular workout but now, due to office work, my work out has become lil irregular. I just checked my body weight and find it horrible! From 62kgs, I have reached 67Kgs. I started gyming again, but find it hard to shed the extra kgs. Being an extremely fitness freat, I have hit panic state of adding this extra 5kgs! Because of this I'm not able to concentrate on work or things that I want to do. I feel my digestion problem is somehow related to my weight problem as well. Can you please suggest what should I do? I plan to join Yoga. I believe this would help. I need suggestion on my diet, which is currently very irregular. I would be very happy to have a face-to face discussion if possible. Please help.
