Abstract:
According to NFHS-5, approximately 23.45% of the Indian adult population (age 15-49 years) were overweight or obese as their BMI was ≥25.0 kg/m2. The main cause of overweight and obesity is eating more calories (energy intake) than calories burned (energy expenditure). Most people while losing weight only focus on overall weight going down on the scale without thinking about particularly fat loss and body composition. Loss of lean body mass typically occurs along with weight loss. This loss of lean body mass has a number of negative consequences. As a result, weight loss methods that preserve lean body mass are beneficial. Regardless of macronutrient distribution, it is difficult to maintain lean body mass while being in a big calorie deficit. As a result, the impact of different dietary supplements on body weight and body composition has emerged as an active research study area. Many dietary supplements like protein powders and creatine have been found to improve body composition by preserving lean body mass. This paper describes a strategy and supplements for improving body composition for gym users in India.
