Busting myths : Eating pizzas and burgers do not make you gain weight



Sagar Tewatia – Mumbai Uncensored, 28th February 2022

Did you also believe that eating pizza will help you gain weight? What if we tell you that you can eat pizza without guilt and you can still lose weight?

The majority of people believe in this myth that eating their favourite food, i.e., pizza, burger makes them fat and the moment they start thinking about their favourite food, they start feeling guilty. So, in that guilt, they stop eating their favourite food, and that act restricts their body from releasing endorphins.

Before we jump to our favourite food, let us understand what endorphins are. As per Google, “When you have your favourite dish or dessert, your brain produces happy hormones called endorphins“.


It may be YES or NO, but first, let us understand this whole concept: 

Our brain understands that it’s pizza/ burger, but our body does not. The language of our body is different; it understands carbohydrates, fats, proteins, amino acids, vitamins and so on and then acts accordingly.

You may eat pizza, your favourite dessert or any of your favourite food, but you have to measure the quantity, and then you have to follow the input vs output principle.

Let’s take an example:

You are in the shredding phase, following a diet of 1800 calories and burning 2000 calories, here you are making a deficit of 200 calories. It will lead you to lose weight, but you have pizza cravings today. Here we have two choices: 

  1. As you read above, you will not cheat and follow your regular diet, which may restrict your happy hormones (endorphins).
  2. You will eat pizza, but you will ensure that the overall calories will remain 1800, or you will be burning those extra calories you have consumed through pizza and following this will not make you fat.

That’s how our body thinks.

It is mandatory to measure every single food item you are consuming. And yes, carrying a weighing machine is not a practical solution but installing free calorie tracker applications is.

Also, eating pizza daily may not be the best choice for you because keeping calories on track is good, but it is more than this. Apart from calories, you also have to keep multiple things in mind, like how many calories you consume from protein and carbohydrates & fat, as they have their own assigned tasks to achieve within our body.

So, next time you crave to eat your favourite food item, don’t restrict yourself; find out a smart way of having it.

Marburg Virus kills two people, the first cases confirmed in Ghana.



Khushi Thapa, Mumbai Uncensored, 21st July 2022:

Ghana officially confirmed two cases of the Marburg virus, a highly contagious disease comparable to Ebola, on Sunday, after two patients who subsequently died tested positive for the virus earlier this month.

On July 10, tests carried out in Ghana revealed positive results; however, the World Health Organization stated that the cases had to be confirmed by a laboratory in Senegal.

Ghana Health Service (GHS) released a statement saying that additional testing at the Institute Pasteur in Dakar, Senegal, “has validated the results.”

Despite the fact that none of the contacts has yet shown any symptoms, GHS is taking steps to lessen the chance of the virus spreading, including isolating all of them.

The Marburg virus has just recently spread to West Africa twice. Guinea reported the region’s first incidence of the virus last year, but no other cases have been found.\

“(Ghanaian) health authorities have responded swiftly, getting a head start preparing for a possible outbreak. This is good because, without immediate and decisive action, Marburg can easily get out of hand,” said Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa.

Wimbledon 2022 Women Singles Final Highlights: Elena Rybakina defeats Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, clinches Maiden Wimbledon Title



Shobit Chandola, Mumbai Uncensored, 16th July 202:

On 9th July, 2022 the Wimbledon got its winner in the Women’s Singles with none other than Russian born Kazak, Elena Rybakina who defeated the Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur with 3-6, 6-2, 6-2. Wimbledon this year, for the first time in a while, witnessed 2 finalists seeking their maiden title. What could be termed as unpredictability is that the fan’s favourite contenders were all eliminated before. While the Record 7 Wimbledon title winner Serena Williams was shocked by H. Tan in  the 1st Round, it was Paula Badosa underperforming in the Round of 16 and  the astonishing defeat of the Former Wimbledon Champion Simona Halep in the Semifinal.That too came from the end of Elena Rybakina who vanquished Simona in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.

As could be seen in the epic thriller, the first set was won by Ons Jabeur whose drop shots and forehand made Rybakina go for many unforced errors. But post conceding the 1st set, Rybakina changed the gear for all the trailing in 1st set and ensured enough aces and volley to make it 6-2 in the 2nd set for 1-1 tie. For the 3rd set, Elena led with 2-0 but got holded by Jabeur to make it 3-2 but outshined Jabeur with a 5-2, finally breaking the latter’s serve in the decider.

Not to forget the incredible journey of Ons Jabeur so far. It was the World No 2 Ons Jabeur who became the first Arab and african women to become the Wimbledon finalist but wasn’t at her best to defeat the 17th seed Elena Rybakina who switched her nationality to Kazakhstan in 2018 (owing to the lack of funding and infrastructure for her game) before representing Russia. Just like Elena who wrote the history as the first kazakh to be claimed as winner in the Wimbledon, it could have been the same to Ons too being the first Arab and African women.Though the losing cause made the Ons emotional, it was her grit, determination and the post match interview which reflected her strong character.

In the Post Match Interview, the Introvert Champion Elena had her say on the Wimbledon title. She stated “I was super nervous before the match, during the match and I’m happy it’s finished, to be honest. Really I have never felt something like this. I want to thank the crowd for the support, it was unbelievable these two weeks,” the 23-year-old said. But also I want to congratulate Ons for a great match and everything you have achieved. I think you are an inspiration for everybody. You have an amazing game. We don’t have someone like this on tour and it is a joy to play against you. I ran so much, I don’t think I need to do fitness anymore”. With this title, Elena became the youngest player to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since 2011.
