Combat Obesity with caffeine based soy yogurt

Obesity is a medical condition that occurs when a person carries excess weight or body fat that might affect their health. A doctor will usually suggest that a person has obesity if they have a high body mass index.

Obese are those people who have an excess amount of fat and this condition is obesity. According to a report, obesity accounts for one-third of the total worldwide population, especially in the US. According to an estimate, the number of obese people will reach up to 85-90% by 2030. Additionally, obesity has devastating impacts on health since it causes chronic diseases like cardiovascular diseases; type-2 diabetes, depression and even certain types of cancers.

      Weight-loss Strategies:

Actually, there are several weight-loss strategies. Below we discuss five main strategies.

  • Physical therapy:

      According to research, physical therapy has the main way of losing weight. Therefore, obese individuals should do various types of exercise. Moreover, the most effective exercises seem to be dancing, playing sports, and most importantly walking. Apart from these exercises. Any physical activity for 30 minutes daily is effective in losing weight.

  • Drug Therapy:

Drug therapies are not effective on their own. They are found to be more effective when coupled with proper exercising. Additionally, drugs are not recommended from the beginning. They should be taken in those cases, where physical activity fails to show any result after six months. Over and above, one of the approved drugs is orlistat. This inhibits the pancreatic lipase by which the ingested fats are absorbed from the intestine. Therefore, the drug inhibits such absorptions, which prevent the accumulation of the fats in certain body parts.


  • Weight-loss Surgery:

This is the last option and is reserve for worst-case scenarios. Those who exceed 150 KG are in a tight corner since they cannot do exercises or any means of physical activity; therefore, the surgery is the only available choice and solution.

  • Diet Therapy:

Diet therapy, is one of the most common therapies for losing weight. Here the aim is to eat healthily and reduce the daily calorie intake. Those who are willing to lose weight should eat approximately 1600 Kcal/day for man, and 1200 Kcal/day for women. Furthermore, the diet should focus on vitamins, proteins, and small amounts of carbohydrates and fats.


Caffeine-based Soy Yoghurt:

  • Caffeine 

 Caffeine came from the French word café and from the German word Kaffee and both meaning coffee. Scientifically, caffeine is 1, 3,7trimethylxanthine. When it is purified, it produces a white bitter powder, which is the component of many soft drinks and gives them a very distinctive unique taste. Additionally, within 30-35 seconds caffeine absorbs. and its effects appear within three hours. Furthermore, the excretion process happens afterward and there is no accumulation in the human body. Caffeine is one of the stimulants for the central nervous system. It is also one of those physio-active drugs and the safest one.

Furthermore, it is effective against relieving pain and tiredness. According to research conducted in Huazhong University of Science and Technology in (2017), Mice have been more active and less hungry after having certain dosages of caffeine, the study focused on the fat mice. In addition, they noticed their behavioral changes; and fortunately, they became less hungry; and more likely to do exercises and more active as well. The scientific reason beyond this lies in one of the brain’s receptors, the adenosine receptor to which the caffeine is targeted. Furthermore, such a receptor is responsible for triggering the hunger feeling and regulating the body’s energy too.

Researchers have done both in vitro and in vivo experiments to monitor how thermogenesis is affected by the caffeine. Therefore, they have isolated adipocytes [fat-storing cells], and then exposed them to caffeine. Afterward, they noticed UCP1 has been elevated and they boosted the metabolism of the cells afterward.

Another study carried out by Prof. Michael Symonds and his team compared the effects of drinking cup of water with those drinking cups of coffee and the study claimed clear findings that those who drank coffee had an induction in the thermogenesis. This increases the heat of the brown adipose tissue [supraclavicular region] and the fats have been burnt as a result.


  • Soy Yogurt:

 Soy yogurt could be made by making a fermentation process for the soymilk with two main types of bacteria which are the Lactobacillus Bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. The biologist Mechnikov theorized that the yogurt should include Lactobacillus bacteria which are responsible for extending the lifespan of yogurt itself.

The component of the milk which is responsible for the curd characteristic of milk is the lactic acid which forms during the fermentation process made for sugars and carried out by bacteria. Previously-mentioned bacteria produce the lactase which functions by lactose breaking down in the dairy milk. On the other hand, Soy milk lacks lactose and it has certain sugars like raffinose and stachyose.

The bacteria present in yogurt helps to strengthen our immune system and the enzymes present have an important role in food digestion. Additionally, probiotic bacteria increase human gut health; therefore, they are in soy yogurt.

Probiotic bacteria have many classes; and out of them is the Bifidobacterium; in addition, such a yogurt has many constituents and insulin isn’t an exception; since it is responsible for probiotic bacterial growth. Furthermore, the sugars present in the soy yogurt are raffinose and stachyose which functions in Bifidobacterium growth stimulation in the large intestine. Therefore, this soy yogurt in a way is symbiotic-yogurt since it has both prebiotic ingredients and probiotic bacteria.


  • Caffeine-based Soy Yogurt:

Therefore, a caffeine-based soy yogurt will mainly burn brown fats and help in maintaining the blood glucose levels within normal ranges; and will also regulate the blood cholesterol levels. Additionally, it will provide the body with awesome perfectly regulated digestion process through the present bacteria in it. Furthermore, it will also suitable for lactose-intolerance. Therefore, caffeine-based soy yogurt will help obese persons not only to lose their excess weight but also to have a healthy life.
