An interview with Dr Ajay Bakshi


“Bad nutrition – specifically addiction to carbs and sugars is self-inflicted harm,” says Dr. Ajay Bakshi, the Managing Director & CEO of Manipal Health Enterprises (Manipal Hospitals), calling for the scientific community to better engage with the public to share scientific facts (on nutrition) proven through rigorous research studies – rather than anecdotal evidence that seems to drive a lot of fads.

Grow Fit: How do you think the way medial science has viewed nutrition has changed over the years?

Dr. Ajay Bakshi: The medical science on nutrition is still evolving and despite a lot of research, a single consensus view has not yet emerged. However, one thing is clear: nutrition, its relationship to over-weight/obesity and ways to control weight are very complex topics with inter-related forces like total calories consumed, quality of calories, individual hormonal responses, individual psychological characteristics (like motivation etc), social factors (like family eating habits). All of these forces have complex interactions with each other and there are no simple solutions towards weight loss. However, one thing is becoming clear about nutrition. The excessive consumption of carbs in general and sugars in particular are key factors contributing the over-weight epidemic. In fact, the new phrase – “sugar is the new tobacco” is quite apt because it has taken us decades to understand the damage sugar causes, it is equally addictive and there is a large sugar-based food industry that stands to lose if people start consuming less sugar.

 The awareness (in India) about the harm caused by sugars is lagging behind the West

Grow Fit: Has there been a change in this (i.e., medial sciences’ views on nutrition) between the way India and the West have viewed this?

Dr. Ajay Bakshi: The awareness (in India) about the harm caused by sugars is lagging behind the West. In fact, the large contingent of vegetarians in India are seen to be overweight because their diet has much more carbs and sugars than those of non-vegetarians. This is anecdotal data and the fact that systematic studies on this simple but important question do not exist is telling.

But unfortunately, obesity is still seen as a failure of “will power” and “weakness”

Grow Fit: Specifically to do with chronic disease, how has the significance of nutrition changed?

Dr. Ajay Bakshi: People do seem to recognize the connection between diabetes and obesity. But unfortunately, obesity is still seen as a failure of “will power” and “weakness”. Obese people continue to be joked about and made fun of. This is unfortunate. Obesity is as much a disease/medical problem as arthritis or hypertension often originating in an addition of carbs and sugars.

The scientific community needs to engage with the lay public better to share scientific facts which are proven through rigorous research studies rather than anecdotal evidence that seems to driving a lot of these fads. 

Grow Fit: What is your opinion about functional foods and the clutter in the market on “eating healthy”?

Dr. Ajay Bakshi: For sure “eating healthy” is a fad – which is double edged sword. On one hand it is important for lay public to become much more aware of what they eat and how unhealthy eating can seriously damage their quality of life. On the other hand – there are a lot of questionable and scientifically un-supported diets out there. The surge of ‘organic’ foods is one such – there is hardly any scientific evidence that organic foods are actually healthier and lead to better health outcomes. Similarly, people go on crash diets where they are on liquids only for a few days, or eat only one type of food (e.g., boiled vegetables) or exclude a particular component (e.g., gluten). The scientific community needs to engage with the lay public better to share scientific facts which are proven through rigorous research studies rather than anecdotal evidence that seems to driving a lot of these fads.

People should make the choice explicitly with their own mind, rather than allow external industrial forces to dictate their choices. 

Grow Fit: Any additional thoughts or comments that you would like to share?

Dr. Ajay Bakshi: In the end, modern medicine has successfully conquered most infectious diseases and even several chronic diseases like cancer, heart attacks etc., are amenable to cure and good long term outcomes. But bad nutrition– specifically addiction to carbs and sugars is a self-inflicted harm that a lot of people seem to be committing. We have a choice of living a shorter but ‘sweeter’ life or a longer and more balanced life. There is no right answer here– but people should make the choice explicitly with their own mind, rather than allow external industrial forces to dictate their choices.

    After 7 Years in a relationship with my Boyfriend, my Boyfriend started going out with other girls and showing me cold love, on several occasions he threatens to broke-up with me if I dare question him about his affair with other girls, I was totally devastated and confused but i was always optimistic that things will change because I love my boyfriend with all my heart. luckily an old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet called DR.BALBOSA who help people with their relationship and marriage problems by the powers of natural love Spells, At first I doubted If such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try and luckily for me, i and DR.BALBOSA live in the same city so i went to see him in his Apartment with my friend…DR.BALBOSA is such a great man, he told me everything I needed to do and he also checked the connection between i and my boyfriend, so he helped me cast a Love Spell and within 48Hours my boyfriend came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with girls and he is with me for good and for real. words cant describe how grateful i am to DR BALBOSA. please endeavor to contact him for any relationship issues and he will always help you. God Bless You from shelly jake..


    This testimony is worth sharing to the world. I am here to tell the world of the good works of Dr BALBOSA. My name is Olivia Bolton am from the UK.. My man left me and my kids for another older woman. It was not so easy for me.. I love my husband so much and I did not lose hope and I kept praying and God finally answered my prayers…i searched online for a spell caster to help me unite me and my lover back forever and i saw so many testimonies of how DR BALBOSA has helped so many people online and i decided to give him a trial … I contacted him and explained to him. He told me not to worry that he will bring back my man within 24 hours. He consulted his powers and assured me not to worry . He did his work and cast the natural spell and to my greatest surprise, my husband came back the same day begging and crying just as Dr BALBOSA said. He begged me for forgiveness and he promised never to leave me for any reason. We are happy and we live together as one.
