Unhealthy food habits, more processed food consumption. Less fibre in the diet than the usual recommendations. The life style habits are too poor with no exercise and more over a sedentary life style are the reasons for the same. One should be active and start to burn calories and the calorie consumption should be balanced.

Hi, I married 28 year old. Recently i started snoaring at nights. This all started after i got married. Not sure if there is a link for that. But its causing a lot of disturbance to my wife and she is not able to sleep. I am not able to get rid of that. I heard that its dangerous to snoar which might lead to heart problems. I noticed that i snoar only when i sleep on my back or sides. But not much when i sleep my stomach facing down. Can you please let me know how to get rid of this. I work in night shifts. I have a growing tummy. Please suggest me how to get rid of snoaring. Regards, Naren.

Dear Doctor, I have manboobs which have destroyed my confidence level. I have heard on different forums, some people say that they can go away through proper exercises and diet. Some say that they only go away through surgery. I want to know whether i have gynacomastia or is it just fat. I am obese. Most of the fat is in my upper torso. My weight is 120kg. I am 21 years old and my height is 6ft 4 inch. Please help me. Thanks Regards, Faraz.
