What if I told you the best kept secret to weight loss? One that would not only make you lose weight but will also become a lifestyle that is easily adaptable and manageable? Everything that we do for our weight loss – be it nutrition or exercise, it all falls under the one big umbrella of ‘Calories.’ The one end goal of everything is to burn more calories than you eat. And that, dear reader, is the secret – CALORIE DEFICIT.
Today, let’s unravel this concept to understand what it is and how it helps us.

Appetite – we all know this word and what it means. But how familiar are you with the Appestat mechanism? Doesn’t sound familiar? Well, we tend to lose control over this monster and end up binge eating or under eating but do you know what in your body is responsible for regulating appetite?

Any machine that works continuously is bound to heat up a lot, get over worked, under perform after a while until it finally wears out. And the human body is the most complex machine that was ever made. Your body does a lot all through the day, just to get you around and get your work done. If not rested well, the first symptoms that pop up are tiredness and fatigue, eventually leading to illness. Imagine the kind of ‘stress’ your exercise puts your entire body under. Hence, rest and recovery after your workouts are paramount not just to function normally but also to give time to the workout to show results. Today, let us understand what is ‘REST AND RECOVERY PERIOD’, and how & why we must do it.
We’re mostly unhealthy, lacking one thing or another from our body. Why? Well, it is a known fact that the food that we eat today is compromised. Either it lacks nutrients or it is mostly grown in an inorganic way. Let’s not blame just what we eat. How we eat, is also the culprit here. Given our current lifestyle, our concentration on food, it’s preparation and eating is becoming lesser by the day. Hence today, we lack nutrients from our bodies more than ever. Fast food, easy-to-cook, ready-made, home-delivered… all these options have made our eating easier but they have also snatched away all our essentials. This has led to numerous health problems and complications. Today, let’s understand how to tackle this problem by increasing our Vitamin intake. We will also see how these essential vitamins help us stay healthy and problem free.
“One size doesn’t fit all” Let me extend this adage and say – “There is no one secret formula to lose belly fat that will work for all!” There is a lot to be taken into account and the best solution to any problem is a Customized one – one that is tailor made exclusively for you. And this adage holds an even stronger ground when it comes to fitness. Just like one prescription from one doctor cannot cure everybody’s illness, even if the illness is same. Today, let’s explore this very common issue of “belly fat”, and how just one prescription cannot and will not work for all. We will also look into the best steps you can take and the mistakes to avoid, to reduce your belly problem.
Be it a gym injury, an awkward sleeping position, less or sudden movement of a joint or muscle, a major fall or a chronic muscle/joint condition – all these can cause soreness, stiffness and injuries, leading to mild to severe pain.

They say that when you work out, you don’t perspire; YOU GLOW! But let’s face it – nobody likes to sweat or see others sweat. But again, there’s no escaping it. Everyone sweats while working out – just the intensity varies. And sweat becomes even more repulsive because of the odor it carries. There’s no denying that body odor (B.O) is a big turn off! Since you are in a social setting, whether in a common gym, group class or with your personal trainer, there is a certain social protocol that you need to follow so as to not cause inconvenience to others. You wouldn’t want someone smelly working out next to you now, would you?
But should we resent sweating altogether because of B.O? Or is there a way to tackle it? Today, let’s sweat it out to understand this whole concept of Perspiration better and how not to spread the wings of B.O everywhere.
