Who doesn’t love the idea of quick weight loss? Or rather put it this way; Who wants to spend long on a feat, which can be achieved in a week/month? For the record Weight loss is a 66 Billion Dollar Industry, which is 2/3rd the annual business of Microsoft, Amazon. No wonder it is the most advertised industry in several parts of the globe.

Diet is the new modern-day food jargon. Majority populous doesn’t think of being on a Fitness plan if they are not on a diet. Walk into any corporate office filled with Millennials, and you would see Paleo fanatics, to juice cleansers, to Keto lovers, to Starvation lovers.  The thought of instant gratification and restriction being the catalyst for success has blindsided the real thought of Fitness as a lifestyle. While we speak of Diet, we are referring to people who follow a restrictive set of food choices. This set of thought process has given the Fitness industry a magnanimous boom and now we have a diet for every set of weight loss goal.




A Typical modern day dieter counts calories in a meal, always says “it’s too many calories” whenever sees a sugary food, he/she will have happiness directly linked to sticking to a diet plan or failing to stick with it.

It will be false if I say I haven’t been on both sides of the bandwagon. My personal journey towards Health and Fitness began on a Calorie counting approach along with love for the chiseled core. Eventually, I stand here with a clear perspective “Diets only work for Weight Loss and temporary numbers, Nothing Else”.

When we are new to the game, what glitters to the eyes catches our attention. If you were bombarded on social media, Mobile feeds, E-Mails with words like weight-Loss”, ”Gal Gadot Diet plan”, “Lose pounds dramatically in weeks”; you are destined to click and try. To start off on a step by step guide which promises results and gives you control of your decisions its fair enough to be attracted to as the solution. Having a plan at the moment is much better than wandering with a thought “I need to do something”, “ I need to do something”. You can never take away credits from people who packaged a set of food and made you create dreams basis on these lines.

Why diets don’t work?
  1. Diets are not long term

Diets are not designed for long-term use. They are designed for instant gratification and quick results with a severe restriction on the permissible set of foods which are tough to follow on an extended period. The plan laid out does not detail how to make best when the choices marked are not available, and makes the individual handcuffed on a specific set of foods. Its not realistic to imagine sustaining your life on protein shakes/cheese/Juices/Veggies; that’s impractical even for thought.

  1. Weight loss is Temporary

It’s not exactly breaking news that one who goes on a diet eventually gains back the pounds. But Science has shown more than 95% off the people who have gone on a diet have reported a bulk back after moving away from the plan.The vast majority of people who have lost weight on a diet plan have seen it coming back in months. And I must say the bounce back is more than the set point weight. While on a restrictive set of diet body accepts living on a lower set of calories, thus lowering the metabolism. On returning to the original eating plan, the lower metabolism rate causes extra fat to be deposited stored as Fat in the body.



  1. Weight Loss as a goal is a wrong

The whole idea of a diet plan revolves around weight loss, which can be a detrimental point to start.  Fitness is a lifestyle, not a plan. One needs to respect it as a lifelong habit.

Diet plans tie internal happiness to an external goal of weight. One tends to think my life or happiness quotient will change if I lose Kilos or lose few inches. Diets are tying people to an unspoken societal belief that thin people are good looking, and we gain control of our world, self-esteem or looks through weight. Weight counts, calorie charts are probably taking you in a direction where you are paying excessive attention to something which doesn’t hold significant value as defined.

  1. Lean doesn’t mean Healthy

You can be heavy and Healthy, you can also be thin and significantly unhealthy. Tying health goals to a weight number is no metric to evaluate overall health. We should focus on living and creating healthy habits. Habits that are sustainable and focus on nutrition. Health indicators can be improved by changing the focus from weight to healthy habits. Weight will also come down to its justifiable mark when all the other parameters are taken care off.

The best diet plan you can adapt in your life is one that allows you to look at food from a nutritional perspective, rather than from a calorie count perspective. The goal is to create a plan of healthy foods which make your body feel good, not from a plan which worked for someone. Stop letting scales dictate your personal and social life.

Is your Monday Morning something like this??

Video Courtesy: naukri.com

Monday Morning is a drag, of course, who loves to follow a schedule when you just had 2 days of your own clock. Feeling stressed and anxious at the start of a new week is not uncommon. Sunday night binge watching keeps us sleep deprived, traffics bad on a Monday morning, Number-Projections- Presentations; the to-do list is endless on a Monday morning. Monday gives us immense reasons to hate it. Monday morning blues are so prevalent that we have a made a habit to laugh off any extent of emotions like depression, anxiety, stress, hopelessness.


But are these really a good sign? To what extent are they from Binge watching/ Excessive boozing?

Facts: –

People show high signs of stress when they anticipate workday.

Most workers don’t smile good 2 hours into work on a Monday morning.

I am not sure this one is due to blues; suicide rates are highest on Mondays.

While science has gone ahead and done a lot of psychological and neurological studies to determine the quality of work is proportionally affected by the emotional state of mind. I personally could say from experience; innovation and creativity go down the drain when someone is not motivated into work.

Before you take the notion that Mondays are a sin, it’s best you investigate your choices. It’s vital to not ignore the possibilities of choices behind the hopelessness rather than a day of Week. If Cold Showers, Double shot expresso’s, exercise are not enough to motivate you, it’s time for a reality check.

  1. Is it your Job?

Let’s face it: if it’s not working it’s time to move on. There are rarely few who would say their job is exciting, motivating and fulfilling; for the rest, it’s a wait for 31st with spikes of excitement to keep the happiness going. But if you are dreading every morning, its time to evaluate careers. What length, what capacity you are troubled, barring you no one has a better answer to that question.

  1. Digital Detoxification

By digital detoxification, one doesn’t mean for you to switch to Monk Mode. Avoid checking professional mailers and schedules on weekends, until its not urgent and needs immediate attention. Why check and worry if you don’t intend to respond it till you reach office. The reason Monday feels excessively painful is that you have let it sneak into your me time. Switch off the Auto-Sync on weekend, let it be a weekday phenomenon. 

  1. Zero sleep and wish to innovate like Tony Stark

If you are only running on a few hours’ sleep, it’s highly unlikely you will like anything the next day. Getting to bed at reasonable times will make you feel fresh and active the next day. Sleep deprivation has been one of the biggest causes of stress and reduced productivity among modern-day professionals.

  1. Work-Life balance

“Work is just a part of life, not vice versa”. Some say it’s elusive, others like to say work-life integration, yet its something I believe does exist. And it’s not wrong finding the magical spot of life.  No matter how important demands or professional life get, its important to replenish the lost stores of life with Fitness and Self-Care. If your ideologies are confined to working in an assembly line and don’t intend to pursue any passion/growth; probably you should focus on efficiency at best. However, if you have a vision for the future which involves challenges, you need to work on finding the balance.

  1. Fitness and Food

Its no secret exercise pumps up the endorphins and makes you happy. What better way to start the day than with some good tunes on a bright sunny morning with a cardio workout, following it up an exotic milkshake and Egg Toast. Does it really sound that bad?

Sleepy eyes and morning hunger crankiness is the last thing one needs on a Monday morning.

There are those lucky few who gulp down Kilos without worrying about a gram of weight gain. For others, food is like a maze. some even go to an extent quoting “Hindi- Mereko toh hawa bhi lag rahi hai (English- I seem too gain weight by air too)”.

Feeling Fat or unfit all the time? spending meal times worrying about calories? Stress makes you run towards food?, you are part of that population who has made a habit to beat themselves up at every meal. Bad eating habits are extremely common in our lifestyle. While we tend to seek the solution in diets like KETO, GM, the answer is much different to the reality.




Disordered Eating starts with your mind.

You are always focused on your meal calories, rather than the nutritional quotient. “Man’s greatness lies in his power of thought”-Blaise Pascal, we have slightly tweaked it “Any greatness lies in the weight scale”. In a nutshell, your food is always about drama and guilt, instead of lasting happiness and nutrition. While I don’t say you should go ahead and order Double Cheese Burst, but you can surely have that banana shake without worrying about calories.

Habits of Disordered Eating

  1. Do you skip meals to compensate for heavy meals?
  2. Always think of yourself as a Fat person?
  3. You skip meals to feel light?
  4. Rewards are in the form of Cheat Meals?
  5. You have promised yourself a pizza when the scale hits 100?
  6. Your hypermarket bags are filled with organic and calorie-free products?
  7. You crave for Junk when stressed?

 If it was that easy to find an answer to the question of perfect diet, all of us would have been either boxing Tyson or Sprinting along Bolt. To truly heal your relationship with food, you need to ask yourself. Minor questions like Why am I am hungry all the time, dissatisfied all the time. Seeking answers from within you can help you understand the true problem.

Tips to get straight with eating: –
  1. Deep dive into your thoughts

You can either ask yourself and plan a healthy lifestyle, or you can spend the rest of your life hopping from one fad diet to another. How to live healthy is a simple question, which requires a similar answer. What has been fed to us is a little complicated plan, with a sophisticated marketing push. The idea of living healthy is about empowering ourselves with mindfulness and nutrition rather than panic attacks and meal replacement shakes.

  1. Stop starving yourself

An overweight individual goes on a starvation diet is absolutely fine in terms of Fitness, while an individual who weighs less goes on a starvation diet is a sin.  Downsizing portions or reducing the amount of food is a good strategy for weight-loss, but every individual cannot be measured on the same yardstick. Forcing someone on starvation just for a mere good before-after picture makes no sense. Nor will the individual be able to continue the routine for long, nor will it be a lifestyle for him or her. What the individual just learned is a FAD.

If your body is not receiving nutritional support it will go into Fat storing mode, which will lead to eventual weight gain and other health complications.



  1. Food is Medicine

While Pumpkin cannot be a replacement for Paracetamol, having it in its season can prevent reaching to a state to pop the latter. Eating a diet rich in a variety of foods helps to keep mind and body sane. Fueled by a healthy and rich diet, the body develops a good immune system and becomes resilient against virus and infections.

  1. Eat Food for the true you, not the skinny you

Perhaps one of the greatest sensual pleasures in life is eating a delicious meal. (Though an argument on drugs can be made, but I have no experience of that). Diving into a delicious bowl of Ice-Cream at the end of a work day is a pleasure worth dying for. The pleasure and happiness will die down as soon as the cup is finished, and you will end up sulking the entire night as you committed a crime. The thought will lead to stress, and stress eventually leads to unhappiness and weight gain.

The starvation and cabbage diet has got you to a situation you might eat an entire chocolate fudge (it’s a good portion any day). We are being programmed to believe that something is always wrong with us, that we are losing our temper when it comes to food. Correct me if I am wrong “ you will be happy eating something labeled as healthy/diet pill/Cucumber salad”; not because they taste good. But they make you feel skinny and acceptable to society.

No matter if you’re a seasoned athlete, hitting the gym every once in a while or just planning to take up exercising, post-workout muscle soreness is something that definitely awaits you. Sure, you might feel amazing after a hard workout when you’re full of adrenaline, but as you muscles cool, you’ll start experiencing that well-known weakness and pain. So, how can you speed up your recovery, ease your muscle soreness and get back to the gym as soon as possible?



Drink some cherry juice

Tart cherry juice can be your best friend in a fight with sore muscles. Thanks to its amazing antioxidants properties, tart cherry juice can reduce muscle pain and weakness no matter how vigorous your workouts are. So, stock up and always have some cherry juice at home. If cherries are just too sour, switch it for watermelon juice. The taste is milder, yet the liquid is full of electrolytes you might be lacking after a workout. About 16 ounces or half a liter of watermelon juice after your workout routine can do wonders for your muscle soreness.

Grab a banana

Bananas are not just a tasty and easy-to-digest snack, but they are also full of potassium that can fight post-workout dehydration. Dehydrated muscles are much more prone to severe muscle cramps, so a banana might help you battle these painful cramps. A medium banana contains about 400 mg of potassium, which is around 11% of the recommended 3500 mg of potassium per day, so you can easily pop one into your smoothie, have one with your oats and grab one as a quick post-workout snack. Not a fan of bananas? Here are some other foods that battle muscle soreness.

Book a massage 

A nice massage after a hard workout will feel amazing, but there are other benefits of a good rub down. It will help you flush out the toxins your muscles produce during a workout, reduce inflammations and stimulate cell repair by boosting circulation. Massages are one of the favorite tools to fight muscle soreness in Asia, so it’s not a surprise that you can easily book a luxurious spa treatment in Hong Kong and enjoy various types of massages. When you’re done with your rubdown, you can jump into a hot tub and have a little whole-body relaxation session. If you want to try something a bit more exciting, you can visit a steam room or a cryotherapy chamber. These two treatments are polar opposites (steam room uses steam exposure to relieve pain while cryotherapy uses extremely low temperatures) but they both work. So, find your spa and book your treatment as soon as possible.

Roll it out

After you finish your workout, don’t just rush to shower and get home. Instead, take your time and give your body nice foam rolling. Various foam rollers can be used to break the tension in the muscles and prevent soreness. Sure, the treatment might hurt a bit, but it will certainly help you with next-day pain and even prevent some future injuries. The act of rolling also boosts flexibility and improves the range of motion. It will also give your circulation a nice push and improve muscle imbalance. You can grab a foam roller at any well-equipped sports store, but using it isn’t super easy. Luckily, there are classes as well as various internet sources that can help you with your rolling techniques no matter if you’re a pro athlete or just an occasional gym goer.

Take an unpleasant shower

This is a trick that you might dread, but it’s great for fighting tension, improving blood flow and soothing achy muscles. So, next time you hop into the shower after your workout, try contrasting your water temperature. Blast the water as hot as you can handle for 20-30 seconds and then contrast it with ice cold water for 20-30 seconds. Do about 10 rounds of this and you’ll feel the results. The idea is to push the blood out of the muscles and then pull it back in so that your muscles are always filled with fresh blood full of nutrients that will boost your recovery.

So, next time you’re heading to the gym, stock up on drinks and foods that reduce muscle tension and try aforementioned pain-relief tricks and you’ll be back on track and pain-free in no time!

Your Fitness trainer is shouting out “You can do It-You Can”, you got the best of Tony Stark gym gear, next-generation tech to monitor vitals, a perfect blend of vitamins for recovery, yet you can’t/didn’t do it.

The content of this post comes from my recent injury. Capitalizing the F word, it was F terrible. Though the chest was pumping, biceps was a sight to behold, Abdominal was beach ready, yet the internal energy was lacking. The demands of professional life and a dedicated fitness regime; either had me starved or compromised on one end or the other. Life was about struggling through the puzzle, where one a was a necessity, and other passion. A simple hour workout daily, followed by extended work hours; my life was like a normal millennial. Yet in some time, I Failed. What happened to me??

What was lost in my Buddha like routine was time for self-care. As said in the airlines “Put your oxygen mask first, before you try to help others”. Practising self-care during the day is essential to keep the headspace strong and bounce back resilient to challenges. Here are some tips I have learned over time that have helped me manage routines, professional responsibilities with self care.

  1. Breathing

You, my friend, are sitting on a gold mine with untapped reservoirs-BREATHING. The no-equipment routine offers a plethora of benefits from physical to mental recovery.  A total of 19 seconds you need for a complete 4-7-8 approach. Breathe in for 4 seconds, hold the breath for seven and then exhale for 8.  Not only this exercise will help you calm down the nerves, but will also help you in long run to manage breathing speed while under stress.

  1. Listen to what your body says

Bridge the gap between ind and body. Knowing when a certain regime is causing paining or helping you grow is evident from body signals. If you are fatigued and restless across the day, you need a change. If you feel low on energy, you need a change. The sound of your feet hitting the ground, breathing speed, the way your body responds to tension; these all are signals that tell you your body’s current state. Stop letting either of your body part wear multiple caps, listen to your body needs and act accordingly.

   3.  A workout is not only Gym

Stigma among millennial is Workout=Gym. The idea of a workout is basically to get your heart rate up from normal for an hour or so every day. This can be through swimming, Cycling, Skating not necessarily gym. A substantial proportion of people leave Fitness routines because they hate the idea of Gym. The more fun you find in your activities, larger are the chances of you sticking with it.

  1. Yoga

The best way to understand your body is by speaking to it. Yoga is all about healing the self, through the self, by the self.  Yoga will teach you to let go of the old thoughts while making space for new ventures. Our moods and emotions flow like the seasons. Living in sync with the seasons and body demands helps us battle the hardships of life I a better way.

  1. Meditation

Free of cost, easily accessible workout routine can be tailored to accommodate any sort of disconnect in terms of time, place, schedule, stress and all the other reasons we give to miss out routines. 10 minutes of your daily routine dedicated to connecting your mind and heart can help you much better than the antidote of pharmaceutical companies.

Alkaline water is water that is less acidic than regular tap water. This means it is rich in alkalizing compounds, including calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium and bicarbonate. Since Alkaline Water provides a higher pH level than regular drinking water it helps neutralize acidosis and maintain pH balance that is critical to the overall health of our system.




Acidosis i.e. excessive acid condition in body fluids can lead to short term illnesses as well long-term diseases like cancer and diabetes. While reducing intake of acidic foods and consuming an alkaline diet (eating more of green vegetables and alkalizing foods) help keep Acidosis under control; Alkaline Water is an ideal way to address the problem.

Alkaline Water thus helps to neutralize the body acid, flushing out toxins and effectively hydrating the human body. The unique properties and qualities of water make it the best means of transport to deliver the ne

Singapore based AOX Water recently published this detailed infographic which illustrates the benefits that Alkaline Water can bring to the human body. While scientific evidence to fully verify the claims are still in progress, studies published by leading medical journals have proved the stated benefits

Read about Alkaline Water benefits published here.

Alkaline Water for daily drinking is easily available in grocery and health food stores.  It can also be bought online or ordered from water dispenser & bottled water delivery companies.



You can also make your own Alkaline Water at home.  Adding baking soda or pH drops after determining the pH level of the drinking water you have at hand is one method.  Also adding a few drops of lemon or lime to a glass of water can make your water more alkaline.

In love with your swanky Sleeve/Messenger Bag? While the slings rock on the look, these bags are detrimental to your natural gait cycle.

For any millennial working professional, Sleeve/handbag is more than just a laptop carrier. It’s like a mini Walmart carrying all the essentials we might need through the day(or in case Thanos rubs his fingers). While the ergonomics of sleeve only factors in laptops, the reality is a bag filled with power bank, chargers, water bottle, deodorant, wallet, files, and some personal stuff. In our aspiration to imitate fashion from all corners, we seem to be outrunning the reality of the moment. Carrying pounds of heavy possession in a side bag throws the entire body skeletal structure out of alignment putting undue pressure on spine, neck, and shoulder.




If you are experiencing Shoulder/Buttock/Neck/Spine pain after your traveling hours- your bad might be a big reason to blame.

Strategies to choose a back-friendly bag:-
  1. Wear BackPacks

Backpacks might sound old school and out of fashion, but in reality, are your best bet for you if you carry loaded bags. The dual straps help evenly distribute weight across the spine maintaining the natural gait cycle of the body, while pulling the shoulders back continuously. Contrary to the sleeves and sling bags where the weight is distributed on one shoulder, backpacks keep the weight evenly distributed.

  1. Don’t Stuff In

While backpacks are ideal, they are not to test your muscular capacity across the day. The ideal weight of a bag would be 10 percent of your body weight. While those leisure things look necessary for a work day, they do add decent weight to the carry.  If the bag feels heavy, see if there’s stuff you can do without.

  1. Choose the smallest

Choose the smallest of bag size for all your daily travels. Bigger the size, more it becomes lucrative to add the not so important stuff. That book you have been carrying to read in metro weighs approximately 200 grams, and you might not even have read more than 7 pages in 7 days. Do a reality check.

  1. Thick Straps

Skip the fashion statement and follow thick straps. Thin straps cut into your muscle leading to back problems. WIder straps fully distribute weight across the entire shoulder leading to symmetry and fewer events of spasm.

  1. Switch sides

If you carry your laptop, or other essentials in a side bag, at a minimum, switch shoulders or split the content into 2 bags, so the weight is evenly distributed. Sling bags/Sleeves/Tote put excessive pressure on one shoulder, which the body has to counter by lifting the shoulder up to match symmetry. Unnecessary pressure leads to strains and all too often, pain.

Ever thought your back pain might be related to your bag?  What bag do you carry?

The vision will dramatically skew towards feeling better and living a dynamic lifestyle. Millennials or more specifically corporate professionals is to enhance mobility, musculature, and fitness to carry out daily routines in a pain-free manner.



  1. Yoga

The ancient practice has been on many lists for long and is not going anywhere. Yoga has long been reinventing itself and will be the go-to remedy for lifestyle problems people are forced with due to excessive driving, typing, working hours.

  1. Wearable Technology

It came in as a rage bombarding the market; unfortunately feel through with leaps and bounces. Blame it on the manufacturers or inaccurate technology, tech and fitness are set to change the face of Fitness in 2019. Expect your trackers and monitors to be accurate, sophisticated, less radiation emitting, lightweight and a perfect fashion accessory.

  1. Workplace Culture

If you are to spend half of your wake hours working for an organization, its organization’s responsibility to give back. Individual Health is no more a personal matter and we are lined to see dramatic changes in the same. Companies irrespective of the size will focus more and more towards employee wellness through group activities, membership discounts, in-house equipment’s.

  1. Watch out Social Media space

Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat- your social media is set to see a lot of content around Health-Fitness-Individual achievements. A sense of achievement and motivation is what people are driving by posting content on social media. It was also come forward to form Tribes helping people connect with like-minded individuals.

  1. Round the clock Fitness centers

Your work hours should not limit your access to a fitness facility. Fitness centers are likely to operate longer hours, as globalization has diluted the Nine to Six Work hour concept. Access to fitness facilities will be round the clock and not bound by local morning and evening times.

  1. Sleep Deprived?

Individual performance and decision-making capacity reduces by 25-30% if he/she is sleep deprived or not getting enough rest. If your sleep patterns are out of whack its near to impossible to achieve personal and professional goals. It’s time you get the regular rest hours to revive, wind down and perform better.
