Fact Check

Is it possible to naturally lose fat without exercise and diet?

No. It is not possible to lose fat without exercise and diet. Losing fat is a multifaceted approach. If someone wants to lose fat, they must find out the cause of weight gain: inflammation, leaky gut, hormone imbalance, toxins, low metabolism, intake of medicines like steroids, etc. After the cause is identified, lifestyle and dietary modifications are done accordingly to lose fat. Weight loss becomes difficult as a person ages

Also, it is possible to naturally reduce fat naturally through physical activity and a well-balanced calorie-deficit diet. Patients wishing to lose weight should participate in physical activity and caloric restriction to improve their chances of burning fat and losing weight. Lastly, it is not possible to reduce fat in a few days naturally. It is a gradual process that takes a lot of effort and time.

Dr P Rammanohar

Dr. P. Rammanohar, Research Director, Amrita Centre for Advanced Research in Ayurveda (ĀCĀRA), further explains this precisely from an Ayurvedic perspective by stating that, “As per Ayurveda, obesity is a condition difficult to cure. In fact, Ayurveda text states bluntly that it is almost an incurable disease – na hi sthulasya bheshajam. There is no magical remedy for obesity. No single medicine, internal or external, can treat the problem. Stress management, lifestyle, and diet constitute the main approach to treatment. Medicines, either external or internal, are only supportive. The more patients comply with the comprehensive protocol, the better the results. Obesity also requires an individualized treatment protocol.”

Hence losing fat without taking care of your body is neither advisable nor possible.

How can physical activity or exercise make you lose weight?

Physical activity improves one’s ability to attain and maintain a desirable body weight and composition. Similarly, it also promotes appetite regulation through the body’s appetite-regulatory hormones. It also encourages higher energy flux, making it easier to match energy needs with expenditure. There are several ways physical activity can help lose weight, such as Aerobic exercise, walking, jogging, cycling, strength training, etc. Remember, eating less and exercising more won’t lead to healthy weight loss necessarily. 

Can a nasal herbal box make you lose weight effectively?

There is no scientific evidence to support the claim that a nasal herbal box can make you lose weight effectively. In fact, contrary to the claim the FDA has not approved any nasal herbal inhaler devices for weight loss or to improve liver function.

On redirecting to the mentioned link on the claim, we found the product,” GFOUK™ Vegan Liver Cleansing Nasal Herbal Box” The advertisements deliberately lack clarity on the functionality of their products, employing vagueness as a strategy. With an intention to inundate the user, the ads make numerous assertions that are diverse in nature. The link mentions that the product works through the molecular atomizer and majorly helps in liver tissue degeneration, hepatic fat removal, enhancement in liver toxification and supporting digestion. However, neither of these purported benefits could be found in any legitimate medical source or peer-reviewed published literature.

The nasal herbal box is a device that is inserted into the nose and delivers a mist of herbal extract. The manufacturers of these devices claim that the herbs can help detoxify the liver, boost metabolism, and suppress appetite. However, there is no scientific evidence to support these claims. In fact, some studies have shown that herbal supplements can actually have harmful side effects, such as liver damage.

When it comes to weight loss, it’s important to focus on a holistic approach that includes a balanced diet, regular physical activity, portion control, and overall healthy lifestyle habits. It’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian for personalized advice on weight loss strategies based on your specific needs and goals. 

Bogus claims about losing weight are not new. These advertisements attract the attention of the user and make them fall into their prey. THIP Media has fact-checked several such claims, such as getting fit with a special bangle,  applying transdermal patches for weight loss etc.
