Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent na­tion­wide study by InBody, a global leader in body com­po­si­tion anal­y­sis in as­so­ci­a­tion with IP­SOS, a lead­ing global mar­ket and opin­ion re­search firm, an alarm­ingly large pro­por­tion of In­di­ans suf­fer from poor mus­cle health. The study was con­ducted across eight cities – Delhi, Mum­bai, Kolkata, Chen­nai, Ahmed­abad, Luc­know, Patna and Hy­der­abad. Cov­er­ing 1,243 peo­ple, the re­spon­dents were a mix of work­ing and non-work­ing in­di­vid­u­als be­tween the age of 30-55 years. As per the study, 71% In­di­ans suf­fer from poor mus­cle health and need to gain mus­cle mass. Poor mus­cle mass could lead to im­paired mus­cle func­tion, fa­tigue and poor meta­bolic health. Nu­tri­tion and ex­er­cise have shown to play a ma­jor role in im­prov­ing mus­cle health. It is im­por­tant that we in­crease our di­etary pro­tein con­sump­tion by in­clud­ing more of pro­tein-rich foods in the daily diet.
