Dutta Sahab It is good that new generations are conscious of their figure. By losing weight they are reducing the demand for the junk food in the market, which will lead to reduction in price level. More and more of awareness should be spread so that more and more people try to lose weight by reducing their food intake so that money can be saved which can be diverted to millions starving in our country and such other places like Africa.
