developed the Carbowatch?
Dr. Raj Gupta developed this program initially for his family that had unsuccessfully
tried several programs to control body weight. Raj is a Ph.D. in physics
who, after being a senior scientist at the National Research Council of
Canada and a professor at McGill University, entered his own business. He
is president of ProSoya Inc. (www.prosoya.com),
a company that exploits his various patent to market soymilk and soyfoods
technology and equipment worldwide. He is also a film producer (www.transvisionfilms.com)
and a philanthropist (www.janseva.com).
did it come into existence?
It is difficult to learn something when you think you know everything about
a subject. This problem is faced by most when it comes to things we encounter
everyday. We all know foods have calories, we burn calories by doing exercise,
and if we do enough exercise and eat limited food then we will be able to
control or lose weight.
Raj Gupta's family faced the same problem. Nothing seemed to work. Giving
up desserts entirely didn't help. Giving us soft drinks entirely did not
help either. Going on pasta diet and other special diets didn't work, at
least in the long run.
Raj had mild blood pressure and his doctor asked him repeatedly to lose
weight. With difficulty, at the cost of being perpetually hungry and feeling
weak, he would lose up to five pounds but quickly put back that weight,
especially when traveling on business or pleasure.
Raj's wife had controlled her weight well for long but it had started creeping
upward with age. She had been trying to control weight by reading articles
in newspapers and magazines. She asserted to the family that we should not
take rice and bread both with the same meal if we wished to control weight.
Whenever she tried controlling weight for an extended period, she felt weak.
The concern heightened when his son, already overweight, started to put
on additional weight while away from home to a University. The son avoided
meeting people he knew when he came home because of his excess weight. He
would explode into anger when told to control his food intake and do exercise.
He told us he played tennis regularly for an hour a day and he gave up taking
soft drinks. He ate a big bowl of salad everyday and no dessert. He gave
up one meal every day. He often felt weak and energetically run down. But
nothing had seemed to work. He gained weight in spite of all that and he
resigned saying, "Perhaps I am going to be grossly overweight for the rest
of my life. It is my body constitution."
Raj then decided to put his research experience and aptitude to perform
a thorough research on dieting. More he researched, more confusing it became.
There are so many books in the market, so many websites, so many plans -
each claiming to eradicate the bodyweight problem from the earth, forever.
Raj started working on a clue in one of his friend's letter relating to
the low carbohydrate diet, which helped lose weight while still feeling
energetic. He gathered information from various sources and condensed them
into simple findings. He put the findings into practice on himself and to
his astonishment it worked, and it worked well. His visiting son noticed
it too and complimented him, and so did his physician.
Raj then started writing e-mail letters to his son and this way the findings
first appeared in writing. To his pleasant surprise, his 235 lbs. son took
up the findings seriously and told him after 4 weeks that he had lost 10
lbs. The son then continued to lose weight approximately at the same rate
for several months. When he visited home, he had lost 40 lbs in less than
4 months. He eventually managed to lose 70 lbs. and is holding at 165 lbs
for last one year. He is happy that he can eat every thing he likes and
is confident he can never put on weight again. He knows exactly what to
do if his bodyweight starts inching upward.
Raj's wife also lost the little excess bodyweight she had by following the
His friends and associates started asking Raj how the whole family managed
to lose weight, look younger, and feel more energetic. He then decided to
develop a systematic and concise description of his findings to share it
with anyone desirous of losing body weight. Since it requires one to watch
carbohydrate intake (among other things), he named it CarboWatch.
there a book on CarboWatch?
Currently CarboWatch findings for bodyweight control are available only
on the internet. The findings are very simple and easy to implement in practice.
Writing a publishable book will requires these findings to be buried in
lot of words to be attractive for selling purpose. In addition, there is
an inherent delay in publishing a book and taking it to readers. And then
of course an up front cost to the reader. Nobody should pay for something
unless she/he gets a value for it.
