*Awed by a movie star* Damn, I wish I could look like that

Flat stomach, thigh gap, toned legs

6 pack abs, biceps, muscular shoulders

We all look at these gorgeous people in movies, magazines, social media and have this dire need to look like them. Aren’t we fooled? Nobody can look like that. Unless you starve yourselves. Yes, that is what they do. They lose weight temporarily for that particular scene of the movie. They’re on juice diets, fruit diets for a week or so. Instead of trying to attain bodies which are not possible, why not focus on staying healthy and fit? Just drink enough water and exercise daily.

Here’s a trick. All you need to do is take out 20 minutes thrice a week. First, do jumping jacks for 30 seconds (as fast as you can) then just walk at the same place for 1 minute 30 seconds. In 20 minutes, this routine can be done 10 times. Violà! Calories burnt. The logic behind this is simple. Animals, for instance, a tiger doesn’t do any exercise to remain fit. But when they hunt, they run at full speed for a couple of seconds. And the deer tries to run away as fast as it can from the tiger. So we don’t need to work out for hours to remain fit. Leave that to the body builders and fitness enthusiasts.

“I promise to exercise daily and eat healthy.”

Almost everybody says this on the 1st of January. That’s right, it is only said but not done. It is not that easy. How can you eat healthy when there are so many delicacies to devour on? How about rephrasing it to “I’ll cut down my consumption of junk food”. It will be easier. Or you can just add a little nutritional supplement to your regular diet. For example, sprinkling Moringa Powder in your salad or smoothie, taking Ashwagandha on a regular basis (for over all well being), drinking green tea, et cetera. You can switch to Quinoa which is a replacement for rice. It has high protein, iron and manganese content. Many people are not sure about how to cook the grain.

So here’s a recipe.

1. Wash 1 cup of Quinoa properly.

2. Cook in a pressure cooker with double the quantity of water i.e. 2 cups.

3. Let the pressure build in the cooker, then lower the flame and let it cook for 10 minutes.

4. Take a pan, add 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter), 1 chopped onion, 1 chopped tomato, green chillies and peas. You can add any vegetables of your choice.

5. Add 1 tsp of Garam Masala (blend of Peppercorns, Cloves, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Bay Leaf and Cumin) and 1/2 tsp of Amchoor powder (dried mango powder).

6. Add the boiled Quinoa.

7. Add salt as per taste.

8. Let it cook for 2 more minutes.

9. Serve and garnish with coriander or mint leaves. 

Wish you a very Happy New Year!

Sorry, can’t drink tea. I am on a diet.

I am sure we must have heard this statement like a hundred times. People who want to lose weight restrict themselves, or at least try their level best, from consuming calories.  Most of them prefer switching to herbal tea since it increases the body metabolism and burns fat. Fat oxidation increases, reduces risk of getting cancer, boosts immunity, helps to concentrate, brings down sugar level, lowers chances of heart disease, et cetera. So is there a need to exercise? Why not just consume herbal tea like 10 times a day? Well, if only things were that easy. Green tea does help, but it is vital to exercise and maintain a healthy diet. But if you crave for a bar of chocolate, after all who does not, here’s a way to devour it without feeling any guilt. Just have it immediately after you work out, or an hour before you work out. Because that’s when your metabolism is high and it burns the calories instead of storing it as fat. Life just got easier.  So you exercise, drink herbal tea and maybe cheat sometimes by breaking the no-junk-food rule.
