For men, the number one obstacle in trying to achieve their fitness goals is FOOD. Whether you’re a vegan, slim fast, low carb, high protein, low fat diet fan, consistency is the hardest thing and will be your biggest challenge to maintain.
In today’s fast paced life, finding time to stay healthy and in shape can be difficult for anyone. With a slow economy, increased competition, stressful work environments, professionals today seem to carry their work around everywhere, or shall we say they are constantly haunted by their work.
In the 21st century, obesity has alarmingly affected 5% of the country’s population. A recent study mapping global malnutrition trends has revealed that India has the third-highest number of obese and overweight people (11 % of adolescents, and 20 % of all adults) after US and China.
Have you ever noticed that some of the good things in life only happen once every year? Think, New Year, Diwali, Holi, Christmas and the one that’s quite personal, our Birthday. That makes it a pretty special event. It’s strictly limited, its day is non-negotiable (yes, you still have to go to work) and it’s something you will receive for the rest of your life. So why do we lose the magic of celebrating our birthdays as we get older? Note, this is a generalization, but if you ask the people that are around you, I think they will agree with this. As one becomes older, birthdays usually becomes a time of intense self-reflection: where am I in my life, where do I want to be, Am I Fit & Healthy, what could I improve?
Marriage is one of the most important events in an individual’s life. It is coming together of two individuals, two souls and two families. And in the Indian context, the importance and sanctity of the wedding institution can be gauged from the endless number of rituals which people love to perform to commemorate the D-Day.
Let us first say that it’s not a myth that weight loss only gets harder as you get older. Women who are trying to lose just a few kilograms will have a much harder time at 40 years than they did at 20. Simple fact is as the body changes, so too should your weight loss system.
Drink Away!: Meet your new favorite drink – H2O. Yes I’m talking about good ole water and its magical properties. It’ll zap you with energy and spirit away internal waste; leaving you feeling full (we’ll tackle sugar craving ahead). Water keeps you fresh and alert, not to mention encourages you to take that extra walk to the loo, shaking you out of your stupor.
Keep your snacks close: Yes you read that right. We are telling you to keep your snack close. As soon as you’re salty or sugary craving hits you, you must munch on yogurts, dry fruits, fruits, carrots, cucumber, hummus etc. This is the best hack.

Your nutrition intake will have increased and you’ll already be taking charge against the war on calories.
Run Run: Does this read like your fitness mantra. It is good but it’s incomplete without Strength training. Cardio is great but only cardio will let you burn only limited calories. Strengthening exercises constitutes in development of lean muscles. This will boost your metabolism Vis a Vis burn more fat.
Strength training exercises offer many variations that could commingle as cardio too. For example, while doing the Kettlebell routine you can burn about 20 calories a minute versus the same number of calories burnt by running for 6 minutes.
Clean your Gut properly, Fat-Belly kills faster(also known as visceral fat) – That extra tummy hanging off your belt that you are especially wearing now-a-days to keep your pants up, allows toxoids to ooze into your vital organs. Stats say men with cute rotund bellies die 6 times sooner than people with flat bellies. Relevant tummy diets are most recommended. Say no to Original – Remember the number of times you’ve felt that you just started on that bucket of ice-cream and 15minutes later decimated it to nothing. So take some out to save some workout.(Saves sooo much more workout!)
