Whats Your Secret to Healthy Lifestyle

Hi,

I approached my near & dear ones who maintain a very healthy lifestyle. They have shared their own set of secrets for weight loss, a better well being & a healthy lifestyle. Thanks to all of them who have contributed generously towards my audience. I have picked up top 4 to post it here.

1. Disha Agarwal – 

 

Everyone gains weight at one point of time in their life, even I had gain weight and I was pretty much not happy with the sudden weight gain and then with zeal and enthusiasm I worked on myself to become FAB from FAT!!

I took out time from my daily routine and invested time playing outdoor games with children, for I endlessly love them and they are just never tried of playing. I committed myself daily for 6 months to bicycle for 45-60mins. I took working out as fun instead of boredom, from practicing yoga to dancing. Coming to diet, I realized that having meals thrice a day – breakfast, lunch & dinner doesn’t help in losing weight. I increased having meals 5 times a day including fruits & green salads as two different yet necessary meal.

Above all, enjoy your food, if food was not important, we all had not been here… Eating is important for weight loss, do not over eat your meals and particularly junk foods (once a week, chalta hai) . Eat a little less than required to fill your stomach completely.

2. Arjun Lahoti 

There is no hidden secret behind weight loss it’s always the diet which matters the most. A balanced diet consisting of low carbs and high on proteins, vitamins and minerals should be consumed with proper time intervals. The workout is just the 30% part of weight loss the rest 70% is your diet!! My diet consists of sprouts, chickpeas, all kinds of beans and lentils,broccoli salad, bell peppers salad and kale juice there are very good for a balanced diet.Choose the form of workout you find interesting, there are many choices in hand such as kick boxing, cross fit, Zumba, Pilates and functional training etc. All these workouts are very effective.

3. Sreeramachandra Yasaswy Modukuru

It’s not a diet, I call it a life style, the one which I don’t stop doing it when I don’t understand why I do it or the one which I don’t start doing it when I have to get in shape because I have to impress someone or even fit into a dress I have been wanting to put over.

 

I am Sreeramachandra Yasaswy Modukuru AKA Vegan Monster Machine, I am a health psychologist (UOH) and also a Certified Coach from American Parkour.

I have been working on myself for over 15 years in terms of health and fitness, I realize that a strong physique can be built when taken care of, not abuse but absolute love towards one’s own body, loving and understanding your body will help you open more gates for you to imbibe movements or techniques which your body is actually designed to decipher. There are various disciplines like parkour, yoga, dance, zumba, martial arts and other movement oriented expressions of the human body, involving yourself in any of the forms makes you understand yourself better and lets you choose what your heart opts out for. Lifting weights, calisthenics movement enhances the aesthetics, complimenting the sport you play or the movement you choose. Food is energy, fruit is life force energy, it’s filled with live enzymes.Gree leaves supply protein to the body, seeds suchh as hemp, chia and flax are essential fats which keep the body stay fueled and helps in quicker recovery. Hydration throughout the day makes the body more relaxed and ready. Cooked food should cover about most of the carbohydrates we consume and the rest should include natural or unprocessed foods which help us build muscle, recover quick from the previous session or even an injury. Do yoga or running, cycling or swimming, basketball of soccer, martial arts of parkour, choose what you want, explore other fields of physicality, make it a life style, do use your body and sweat it out everyday for atleast 45 minutes and compliment it with nutrition, brown rice helps, greens and fruits support a healthy life style, a platter of colourful fruits, a meal of green smoothies, a jar of coconut water, a bowl of nuts and seeds and a plate full of salads per day keeps your health in state.

Very lean people might get more into their bodies, making mindful choices when it comes to their appetite, such as eating consistent meals for every few hours and keeping the nutritional value which includes protein, carbohydrates and fibre in balance might open doors to get stronger and feel healthier. After all, size is only one dimension, we need strength and good health to have better longevity and quality of life.

4. Poonam Rungta

I have been maintaining a healthy life style for more than 20 years now. And I believe, everyone wants a healthy body & a perfect figure. There are many views regarding this. Some think that they will exercise & eat whatever they want while some starve to get a zero figure. According to me, both the conceptions are wrong. To get results, we need to love our body, pamper it time to time. It makes us happy. We should eat 3 main meals in a day and also eat 3-4 small meals side by side. Starving depletes us of important nutrients hence a common reason despair & frustration. We should know what to eat & when to eat. Once this is known, it is easy for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Losing weight is easy, but maintaining the same lifestyle is tough. You have to keep this in mind for live long. Food is the fuel of our body, can a car run without petrol? We need to eat balanced amount of carbs, protiens, fats, vitamins & minerals. Some of the diseases are hereditary, so proper care must be taken accordingly. Always eat local foods, a Punjabi can digest Chole much easier than a guy in Chennai. We inherit our food habits from our parents, hence it is important we understand our body and its need to take good care of it. Give yourself 3 hours a week practicing yoga, jogging, playing sports, gymming.

Refrain from eating too much sweets. All fruit contains sugar, eat it in the morning on empty stomach for best utilization of fruits nutrients. Sugar when accumulated in body in excess, can get converted into fat. Avoid eating dessert/fruits post dinner, they get converted and stay in your body as fat. Also, you will get up tired next morning. Eat citrus fruits/ papaya after your meal, as it will help in digestion. Work out & eat in right proportions – do not over eat & it will help you!

                                                              Some wellbeing talk blog post from different people who have committed themselves for a fitter life through their unshakeable determination… The motive behind this post for a healthy life is to bring out each ones secret which have worked for them and probably it will help us too.  Hope their ideas & secrets makes us all determined for a healthy 2017!!
