It seemed like just another day at AIIMS when my life completely changed. I was in between teaching bioengineering classes and doing my rotations at the AIIMS Teaching Hospital when I got a call from my mother. She knew I was working so she wouldn’t have called unless it was really important. When I saw her name on my cell phone I was instantly nervous and took the call.
What she told me next completely destroyed me. My younger brother Kapil, who was just 33, suffered a major heart attack and was being driven in an ambulance to the very hospital I worked in.
I excused myself from my class and rushed downstairs. Emotions were rushing through my mind. Would my brother be okay? How bad was the heart attack? Would he need surgery? I knew I couldn’t operate on my own brother. I was too emotional to go through with the surgery. I started mentally listing which of my colleagues could perform the operation in my place, but what happened next was even worse than I imagined. As soon as they brought Kapil into the emergency room, I saw him on the stretcher and I froze. He wasn’t breathing.
We rushed him into a private room and I desperately tried reviving him for 10 minutes which felt like eternity. I only gave up after the nurse pulled me off him and softly said, “It’s over.”
I was completely heartbroken. My brother was dead at the age of 33.
I never got over the feelings I felt that day. My whole world came crashing down in front of me. I felt as if all my education had gone to waste. If I could not save my own younger brother, what was the point of being a doctor? My mother was in a state of shock when I gave her the news. It took weeks for her to accept that he was really gone.
In fact, she refused to talk to me. She thought I could have saved him but in my heart I knew there was nothing I could have done.
While my brother’s death was a horrible shock, it wasn’t a mystery. The main reason for Kapil’s death was obesity. He had a clogged artery and all he needed was a simple stent to save his life. At first all I could think was that we were 8 minutes too late. If he had come in 8 minutes earlier I could have saved him. But in reality, we were years late. If only Kapil had taken his obesity seriously. If only we realized how unhealthy we was because of his extreme weight. Afterall, I’ve had 100’s of patients die in my arms because of complications of obesity like heart attack, stroke and cancer.
After that day, I could not go back to being a surgeon. Whenever I tried I could not keep my hands from shaking. Every time I looked at a body on the operating table I saw my brother Kapil. I knew I was not psychologically fit to perform surgery. However, I knew I had to do something about obesity and find a solution and save the countless people who die everyday because of their extreme weight.
I decided to quit practicing medicine and become a full time professor and research scholar at AIIMS. I dedicated myself to studying the impact of different natural extracts on the production of fat cells. My goal was to find an easier way for obese men and women to save their own lives. Millions of people all over the world struggle with their weight, but most diets are too hard to follow. In addition, most weight loss programmes being promoted by spa-clinics cost Rs. 40,000-50,000, and despite the high cost, the results are painfully disappointing. They only get rid of water weight, and you gain the weight back in under a month.That is why losing weight often feels like an impossible challenge.
After Kapil’s funeral, I went straight to my lab at AIIMS. I promised myself I would use my expert knowledge of biology to find a solution to obesity, and prevent any more pointless deaths. Every day I got into the lab at 6am and before I did anything I looked at a picture of my brother, and remembered why I was there.
My experiment focused on the most stubborn abnormal fat on the belly, buttocks and in the waist area. I knew that years of weight gain results in a slow metabolism, making it difficult for people to burn fat effectively. I wanted to create an organic solution that targeted this tough fat while accelerating the body’s metabolism at the same time.
I launched experiment after experiment, dissolving, filtering, precipitating, crystallising and recrystallising fat cells, trying to solve this mystery. The work was heavy and physically demanding. I would spend all day researching experimental weight loss techniques, and all night testing them in the lab. My only motivation was that picture of my brother. It reminded me what was at stake.
Two years into my experiment, I still had no concrete solution to obesity and I began to feel hopeless. My colleagues began to doubt my abilities, and I was worried that unless I found a solution millions more would die like my brother did. I tested hundreds of unusual tonics, fungal strains and herbs from all over the world only to have zero results. I just had one last fruit to test, and then I planned to give up completely and move on to an easier field of study.
That final fruit was a delicious African berry from deep in the Congo. In medical school, I took a class on ancient medicines, and I recalled my professor telling me how this one specific African tribe would ritually eat these fruits to raise their metabolism before they went out hunting so that they had higher agility and energy.
The tribe was known for its hunting skills and had survived for centuries without being threatened by another tribe. I knew for a tribe to survive this long they probably had some ace up their sleeves. My colleagues thought I was crazy when I mentioned this final experiment. “You’re actually trying to cure obesity with magic fruit?” They all laughed, “You’re living in a fantasy!”
When the shipment of the rare fruit arrived, I was nervous but I knew I had nothing to lose. I dried the fruit using my oven, crushed it and then mixed it with a saline solution. I poured this saline solution on fat tissue we had grown in the lab and went home hoping for the best.
The next morning I walked into the lab half prepared to be disappointed. However, I was shocked to see more than half the fat had literally melted away. I couldn’t believe my eyes. This simple fruit had literally melted the same type of fat once considered impossible to lose! In all my years of research and medicine I’d never seen something like this. On a chemical level the fruit had accelerated the breakdown of fat into energy and boosted the metabolism of the cells in the fat tissue which is why the tribal men going for hunting were so full of energy. Their fat was being converted into energy almost instantly!
I began to jump for joy. This was the solution I had been looking for! I knew if I went to the university to run human trials it will take me months to get permission but I didn’t want to wait so long so I decided to be the guinea pig and test it on myself.
I knew I had no time to lose so I started eating a spoonful of the extract daily and recorded my results.
After one week, I was totally shocked. My energy levels were up, and I wasn’t even hungry. I got on the scale and couldn’t believe my eyes. I had lost 5.7 Kg. I was impressed but still not convinced. Afterall, I could just be losing water weight as you do at the beginning of any diet. I continued taking the fruit extract and every day I woke up with even more energy. I was also sleeping more soundly than ever before. I was no longer waking up during the night and tossing and turning because my body was actually able to relax (I suspect this is a result of getting rid of toxins). After another week passed I managed to lose an additional 6.3 Kg, putting me at an unbelievable 12 Kg of weight loss, in just 2 weeks.
Once I found out my solution really worked I knew I had to bring it to the world. Over the next few months I perfected my organic fruit extract blend and converted it into a easy-to-swallow capsule. Then, I collaborated with MIT scientist Peter Molnar to prove once and for all that my weight loss solution really worked. In a clinical trial we conducted with 1200 patients from around the world, 97% of patients lost at least 15kg in as little as 30 Days. The men and women who participated in the trial were equally shocked by their results. They were healthier, more confident and more attractive to the opposite sex. (Some of their families didn’t even recognize them!)
I felt vindicated and successful, but I wasn’t satisfied until I made things right with my mother. It had been 3 years since Kapil died, and we still hadn’t spoke. I called her and after she hung up on me several times, I finally got her to come to my lab. I showed her the data from my experiment and even introduced her to my newly-thin patients. She didn’t speak, so at first I thought she was angry. I started to apologize, when she wrapped me in a big hug. I heard her cry into my shoulder and she squeezed me tighter. When she let go, she took a great sigh of relief. “I’m so proud of you,” she said. “I really hope no other mother like me has to lose their sons to obesity.” I started to cry too. It was the best moment of my life.
Since then, my weight loss solution has only gotten more popular. Major Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities have lost a significant amount of body fat using my formula and I receive letters every day from people all over the world thanking me for saving their lives. My solution is the only all-natural, affordable solution that’s guaranteed to make you lose weight. It’s even been featured in several highly regarded medical journals and national publications.
