maybe you actually need to read about doctors who treat childhood obesity , if they exist it is because there are obese children , obese children become obese teens and then adults if there is no intervention.
truth is there is an expolsion in strokes, heart attacks, hypertension and diabetes type 2 in children, for the first time kids are being buried by their parents after deaths from chronic diseases relating to dietary choices

when, Sikhs, these days, say, "Trust in Waheguru, and not this scientific nonsense" , WHAT CAN YOU DO REALLY

That's a sentiment I've noticed over the last couple of years that's being heavily pushed onto the sangat by various kathavachaks and parchaaraks. I wonder why they're going down that road? Funnily enough, it's an idea that seems to come from a certain brand of preacher; mostly rabble rousers and, if I'm being frank, the less learned / intelligent types of preachers that get stage time. Strange how the contemporary greats such as Giani Pinderpal Singh never go down that route, almost as if their knowledge and spiritual gian speaks volumes instead of telling Sikhs to stop trying with life and hope for the best, which we all know is how the masses are prone to interpret this particular sentiment. It's a rather dangerous and quite careless trend that should be curbed before it gets out of hand.

what do you mean 'to genetics', you mean certain foods for east Asians and certain foods for Caucasians?

e.g. chinese people have severe lack of lactase production and also the ability to process alcohol so those things dairy and alcohol will have an even harsher effect on a Chinese person than say a Danish person whose gentics have adapted ingesting dairy and alcohol much more .

if you compare the Tarahumera and the Pima indians who are genetically indentical  you can see the effect of eating nonnative/cultural  foods , the Tarahumera are ultramarathoners, slim , strong on their cultural diet  and the Pima are actually the most diabetes and obesity stricken ethnic group in USA having started eating like the whiteys

Women in Punjab Are The Most Obese Of All – Survey

Punjab is the land of butter chicken, lassi and also big fat weddings. Almost all the people of Punjab are food lovers and not to forget that their unconditional love for alcohol. Punjabis are undoubtedly the coolest and the most chilled out people in India but the report revealed by the national health survey is surely going to disappoint all the Punjabis.

As per the report revealed by national heath survey, Punjabis are the most obese community. The women in Punjab have left behind the men in Punjab in terms of obesity. It has happened for the first time in a decade and the reason for the same could be a drop in liquor consumption by men in Punjab. Though Punjab also has a lot of fitness freaks but it’s a matter of serious concern for the obese people.

Obesity Problem With The Women In Punjab

The percentage of obese women in Punjab will definitely shock you.As per the NFHS (National Family Health Survey) 2015-16, 32.4% of women in Punjab are obese and diabetic. Men in Punjab are also not behind as the percentage of obese men in Punjab is 32.1%. There are 30.6% overweight women and 25% overweight men in the villages of Punjab.

Punjabis living in both urban and rural areas have become fatter since the last NFHS round (2005-06).

Punjabi’s Consumption Habits

Union Ministry of health and family welfare commissioned the latest round last year. International Institute of Population Sciences, Mumbai completed the survey last year.

The survey’s report of the habits of the Punjabis will give you chills down your spine. Drug abuse was the main issue in the state’s polls. The strangest thing is that men in Punjab have become much sober as far as consuming liquor is concerned. As per a report, there were about 34% liquor consumers in Punjab’s cities in 2005-06. The percentage has dropped from 34% to 29.7% and there has been a drop in villages too from 43.4% to 36.9%

The analysts said that there a lot reasons for this change. Some of them are the awareness campaigns by women, more dependence on drugs and also that the panchayats socially boycotted the vend owners.

Image result for fat punjabis

Seems like the typical trolling punjab 'govt' report/propaganda like the ones about female foetocide they've been naming punjab for ages as the  worst but it is blatantly not true in uttar pradesh no female was born for three months in a particular region . Gujarat have their fair share of fatties and Haryana too not mention other states . Not to say we are angels but anywhere where people have affluence and western influence it is going to be like that. BBC had a documentary on a while back explaining the obesity epidemic in India and it hardly mentioned Punjabi, besides the people above look like pakistanis/hindus not apney.

    • Bro, that is a wrong understanding of Sikhi. There are not "different rules" for Amritdharis vs everyone else. There's one set of rules. It's just that Amritdharis actually follow them (or are supposed to). There's simply no rule you can't learn some sort of vidia (education) from a non-Sikh. I agree with not mixing with people that will harm your Sikhi. But we're not talking about "hanging out" with your Namdhari teacher. He's simply teaching you music. I should note that I'm simply talking about taking lessons from Namdhari (or Hindu, or Muslim) music teachers. Actually going into a Namdhari temple or mosque might require additional reflection.
    • Bro, what are you talking about? A lot of Sikh (and other non-Sikh, non-Christian kids) go to Church of England and other such schools. As long as you're not worshiping Jesus, I fail to see anything wrong in that.  In case you think that's just "modern" squishy Sikhs sending their kids to non-Sikh teachers, Guru Sahib's parents sent them to religious instructors for teaching them Punjabi or other Indian languages (Pandits) and Mullahs for learning Persian.
    • "as Nanak said"?  Are you a Sikh? The reason people are fighting with you is because they think you're a Sikh. If you're not, then just do what you want to do.   Also if you seem to be promoting treating men as brothers, could you please state your views on dating? If dating is bad, then please detail why.
    • I don't know if it was you that was posting in the beginning pages of this thread, but if so, why didn't you just lead with that? Why didn't you say "treat men as brothers, women as sisters"?  Instead of saying "females can be friends." It made people think that your real goal was to equivocate (call two things the same that are actually different). That you were trying to put "friendship" and "boyfriends/girlfriends" in the same box so that one could lead to another.
    • Alright, that's good. Treat men as brothers, women as sisters and not in a lustful way. That's all fine. In fact, that's Gurmat. But the people that are opposing you (or possibly another anonymous poster) is when you (or someone) say that you can be friends with a man just like  you would be with a female friend. That is, do things together alone. Go over to each other's apartment. Call each other at all hours of the night. Be physically close (sit right next to each other, hold hands, hug, possibly kiss, etc.). No, you can't do that. And if you think you can, you are the most naive person in the world. So please don't do that. And if you want to, at least don't encourage other young people to do that.
