Trim your diet and pimp up your plight.

Flipping through the placards carefully, before thumping them down on your fridge door,every  morning,to make it clear for the rest of the day,that which matters have a legal right to drive you crazy today(phew!) and which ones will be presumably dumped for yet another day(yay!),you may be missing out on a big one! So it’s time for some rearrangement and a crucial add-on in your today’s(and almost every other day’s!) to-attend-to list! Yes! A HEALTHY-DIET PLAN.

You might have most easily skipped on that one, partly because it is just too boring to follow and mostly because you think that it is a stupid and frail piece of paper which cannot devoid you of the power of going out and eating whatever you want!

So if you also think that you are the mighty king who rules his belly and decides what should go in and what should not,you might as well be a good one, by  following a complete and appropriate diet-chart!

(P.S. The healthy diet thing is also applicable to those who do not have that eerie belly-ruler fantasy!)

Now, before going gaga over what kind of ingredients you should positively add to your diet(to spike up the health quotient!) and what kind of ingredients you should totally steer clear of(because they are simply not healthy enough for you to gobble them up, every other day!),you need to learn to pick up the  healthy platter over the unhealthy one ,enough number of times that it slowly melts into a habit for life!!!

Here’s how you can breeze through the plan:

  1. TAKE BABY-STEPS RATHER THAN A BIG LEAP.

woman_-eating-soup-596x0

Don’t go freak over completely changing your diet plan and switching every single food with a somewhat healthier version of it,with a hope of thinifying yourself with every calorie you cut in your diet! Chances are, you will soon lose interest in following  your overly-strict (and somewhat mean!)diet plan and would rather befriend your old practices of hopping on to whichever delicious piece you can get to lay your hands on!

That’s how your hitler-plan will end up in the murk, unless ofcourse you yourself are no less than a hitler and keep holding on to your commitment like a true devout, without a single drop of pity for your heart (which anyway falls for every other scrumptious dish infront of your eyes,without a fail!).

Brainwave? Go slow and score! First make sure you eat healthy atleast once in a day. And then slowly string up this number to two, then three, and eventually you will be eating healthy most of the time.

  1. LITTLE CHANGES GO A LONG WAY                           .Heart-Healthy-Foods

Infuse a seamless variety of different coloured vegetables in your diet by eking out your routine-meal with a veggie-salad everytime. Dodge butter and choose olive oil  instead for cooking a nice, healthy meal. Bypass sugary sodas at the parties for a subtle glass of sparkling water, with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice in it.

For once,give the luscious chocolate fondue a miss, and instead, feast on a slice of the rainbow from a bowl of colourful and juicy fruit-salad. Elude the heavily-creamy chocolate tart and plunge into an apple or pumpkin pie instead, if you still yearn for a treat.

This way,you can gorge on nutrients and satiate your taste buds at the same time!Win-win! But don’t take your focus off moderation, yet.

3.  GLUTTONY IS A SIN.

734d84ed92ee29ab123aa5aaae86a08a.jpg

Do not indulge in it. A simple way to state it :Eat only as much as your body needs. Frankly,you are equipped with the power of devouring an entire bucket of chicken, in just one sitting,all by yourself!But don’t yield to that power,under the spell of temptation! If you yet do it,then, skip the meals for the rest of the day.

(Or else,be ready to groan with the stomach ache later!Ugh!)

4. EAT SMART.

Eat like a bird rather than like a horse.Do not over-stuff yourself and you won’t freak out before getting on a weighing machine,the next time.

5. SPRINKLE IT “AWAY”.

Life falls bland without a tinge of salt and spice added to it.But too much of anything is upto no good!

Cutting to the chase,the advice is,try to limit your sodium intake upto 1500-2300 mg per day. So the next time you find a big,fat packet of potato chips beaming at you on the street, simply sidestep it and evade the allure.

6.RED-ALERT.

If you have a habit of waking upto the strong, mesmerising aroma of coffee everyday,it’s time to start watching your caffeine intake! Alarmingly!

Undeniably,coffee is just delectable(and you might be a fan of it!I CONFESS I AM!!) but it is addictive.And,the more the number of cups you are down,the faster are your  body’s calcium stores getting depleted! And sadly, that does not sound pretty.

  1. DON’T TAKE A CHILL PILL.

Find little colorful pills, promising you benefits of vital vitamins and anti-oxidants,more assuring,than going down the natural way?They are just so easy too! Simply pop up a pill and gulp it down your throat and magically, your nutritional needs are fulfilled in an instant! No need to stock up on a diverse variety of fruits and vegetables to get different unique vitamins essential for your body!Ha! Saves oodles of energy plus time!

But all that glitters is not gold. Research shows that pills won’t work out in the exact same way the natural thing does. So,heap up on plentitude of green lettuce and whole grains and oranges and almonds and well..you know…the natural stuff, ofcourse!

  1. SHARE YOUR FOOD.

635782003991222660-1221823123_tumblr_ngsu8z3qeY1t6j0gro1_500

Be social.Call in your buddy to share your pizza with him, so that you don’t end up licking the plate clean entirely by yourself.This way,you can avoid the mindless overeating  plus the flak you would have garnered for it,had you plumped up a size by slurping it down,all by yourself!

  1. SAVOUR EVERY FLAVOUR.

Don’t rush through your eating. Chew food effectively and relish its taste. Basically,enjoy your food. Don’t just gulp it down!

  1. CHUCK EATING LATE IN THE NIGHTS.

To put it straight: because it will just grossly fatten you up! Give your body enough break before a breakfast.

  1. SOME TIMES JUST CALL FOR HAPPY INDULGENCES.

It is true that you are on a kind of healthy-diet plan and can’t afford to eat candies and cakes and patties,just yet. But,it is equally true that you are a human.

And humans have needs! And cravings. And desires.So cut yourself some slack once in a while and gorge on some bittersweet joys of life.

And this might help too. One little block of dark chocolate at the end of a week of a rigorous diet,will just serve as a token of reward for your present accomplishments and will  motivate you to carry on with your plan. With more zeal ofcourse! 😉

As the old saying goes, HEALTH IS WEALTH, so  dine healthier, shine wealthier. 🙂

Got a whim for the gym? Excellent.

Draping on your sofa,with a cola can in one hand, and a delectable packet of potato chips in the other, fixating on the alluring tv screen for hours…

This kind of playful self-indulgence sure seems enticing and gleeful at the first thought, but subsequently only paces you towards pounding up a few extra kilos and growing a potbelly. Sadly,later when you try to squeeze yourself in that dazzling party apparel but can only scream with grimace, it suddenly dawns upon you that you are missing out on a very significant aspect of your life. A healthy body and lifestyle.

The very thought of never being able to glamorously fit inside your chic dresses again, starts giving you a nightmare. So shedding that undesired flab, which is belittling your confidence and wrecking havoc on your social life ,should become your prime motto rightaway (inevitably,after that intimidating thought that soon you might loose appeal and never be able to sport a svelte look again!creeps!).

You are left with no choice but to hit the gym for a regular workout.You might have never planned on going down that road before,but it seems the sole floating beacon of hope amidst such tough tides. Hence, loosen your purse strings a little,stack up on the gym clothes and gear up for a daily rigorous regime.

Here’s why you would have not made an incorrect decision.

  1. Survived a dreary day? Feeling low and frazzled? Take a quick jog to the gym and work up a sweat.You will end up feeling quite better about your day .This is so because a study has revealed that exercise helps the release of more norepinephrine in the body,a chemical believed to be effective in moderating the brain’s response to mental stress and anxiety.Thus,a good work out comes to your rescue when you are all worked up and have lost your marbles! Not only does it alleviate your mental stress levels but also helps the brain to deal with the existing tension that is stifling your life. Two birds with one stone ! 11001135264_22ab4d2aca_o.jpg
  2. Do you loathe your body for not exuding a magnetic appeal? Do you cringe everytime you are talking to someone new,because underneath all that gabble,you are actually fretting over how fat you are looking today !Chances are that exercise will increment your self esteem and gently uplift your self-image in your own eyes.So what are you waiting for? Shove that drowsy blanket away, pull up your gym boots and hit the treadmill.The way you will feel about yourself when you walk out,will never let you be work-shy again.16355459146_48bc963e05_o.jpg
  3. Is your daily regime grilling you?Are you often bored or driven up the wall by your monotonous routine-work?Time to abandon the hectic grind,and make a run for the scenic beauty and bright weather,by taking your workout outside.Do this and here’s what you score!

A peaceful hour away from the mess,solely dedicated towards upheavel of your physical fitness and sprucing up a perfect body contour.A complacent hour to give a free flow to your thoughts and make your imagination run wild.
More so often,you might end up solving some grim issues of your life,with their more vivid understanding;now that your blood circulation increases and your brain cells get a power-boost! Viola! 😀

4.Gorging on five handfuls of almonds daily is no longer a more reliable way to a sharper memory than an hour of daily-workout, which fortuately, entails production of more cells in hippocampus,responsible for sharper memory and faster earning.Hence,next time,when going for a sweaty break,don’t have an ickle of doubt in your mind,about returning an Einstein. 😉9678555375_1f2c3cfcf4_o
5. Forever been thinking that exercise can only resort to burn a few calories?The bad news is you might have been living under a rock. Fortunately,the good one is not far behind, and is so much bigger, to eclipse the bad one wholly. 😛  Okay!The fact is that research has found out that exercise can help recover from addiction.It means that the alcohol and drug addicts(and food and sex and plethora of other kinds!)have now a chance to turn over a new leaf in their lives,by shedding away their subsidiary adherence to the addiction.

Even as meagre as 20 minutes of workout,can prove effective in taking their mind off the temptations and they won’t feel the need to scratch their old itch, by acting upon their whim,and yielding to their addiction.

6.Has your boss been yelling at you,of late,that you have lost your lustre and your creative skills are slowly pining away?Have your peers been edging you out on every new idea and project that is pitched-in? No need to lose spirit! Just hit the trails for a long jog,or work your dumbbells at the gym, for a huge burst of energy as well as creativity!

Exercise refreshes not only your body but your mind too,and that might just help you to bin that “looser”tag at your workplace  and bring up seamless bouts of unbridled creative thoughts which can,for sure, trail you towards a shinier future.

So,as it seems there are many upsides to it,carve out a stern schedule and regularise your presence in the gym. Stop being lazybones and instead give a healthy kickstart to your day,with a healthy exercise.

Yes,it is hard to stick to the routine with an unflagging energy and spirit everyday,but once you are in,you will not be able to go about your day without doing it!! You will feel more comfortable in the pain cave,instead! And,all that becomes possible by just keeping one thought in mind:

It’s not about sculpting a size-zero figure or six-pack abs,it is about just going for a better one! 🙂

HEADING FOR A ONE-NIGHT STAND? HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FIRST!

One-night stand.Seamless.Casual.Passionate.Freaky.No strings attached.No commitments.No feelings. Plain S.E.X.

Sounds like heaven,doesn’t it?Now wait before you smirk fella,because it ain’t  easy to sail that boat.There are “always” feelings involved and one person  is vulnerable to get “hurt” and feeling “used”.Awkward,eh? What’s so heavenly about that now?!

Yet it is not totally impossible to nail the act,if you follow all the right steps and can successfully tick them off your list when you are through the process. So,here’s all what you need to know before you hop into the world of nonchalant sex!

1. KEEP IT CLEAN AND PREEN,ATLEAST “THAT ONE” DAY.

Your apartment,that is.It won’t kill you,alright? And it won’t kill your time either.What it could actually kill is the titillating prospect of sex that you are going to have that night.There. Nothing is a bigger turn-off than the sleazy sight of your shoes drooling on the floor and your dirty boxers hugging your sofa and all those pizza boxes…meh!And that is enough to set her thinking about the weird life-form growing in your bathroom tub.Eeeekkk..squirm.She would leave before you could make her feel more squeamish(if that is possible!).And there goes your one-night stand in the dumps,yet again!

2. LIMIT THE BOOZE. 

If you’ve already landed a cute girl who wants to go down that road with you in her sufficiently sober mind,then you really don’t need to drink that last shot of magical hooch,for a quick boost to go on that crazy spree. Chances are it might rather meddle with your nerves too much and you wouldn’t bother to use the protection. Which can turn into a big disaster for the remaining days of your life. Or you might be too sloshed to even perform very well,in the forthcoming time.(Duh! Sexually,that is!).

3. RESPECT HER DECISION. 

Yes,she is totally drunk and overtanked and hazy and doped…but all that doesn’t give you a right to sleep with her.Even if she says yes to hitting the sack with you for the night,make sure she is saying that with a sane mind and a sober thought.Ask her again(although you wouldn’t want to,lest she puts it off the table!).But don’t be a pervert.Respect the woman.Don’t be too covetous for a little-fun-night, to neglect what she really wants. You are not that shallow,are you?

4. DON’T PUSH YOUR LIMITS.(OR HERS,FOR THE MATTER.) 

Be quirky.Be kinky.But don’t be downright whimsical! The sheer beauty of a one-night stand lies in the fact that it renders you free to make all your crazy fantasies come real. Try out what you have always wished to. But. (Yes,there’s always a “But”!)Don’t push it over-the-top. I mean,you just met the girl a few hours ago,what do you expect her to do!! Communicate well,and try out only what is comfortable(for both!)and keep the rest of your fanciful ideas bottled down for now.Or forever.Whatever!

5. DON’T SHOW FAKE SYMPATHY.

 Believe it or not,when the girl says she’s in for “it”,it really means she’s in for “it”. Only.So,you don’t actually need to ask for her number to make her feel you would call,when it is transparent that you wouldn’t. Neither does she need you to. Actually,she wouldn’t need you to, if you wouldn’t get her emotionally attached in the first place!“Oooh..Your dog died? I’m sooo sorry…You are an amazing person…You remind me of my Grandma..I’ll ping you for dinner,later..“Ugh! She doesn’t need all that bullshit you feed her.And Grandma?Seriously?

6. SAY “NO” TO SNAPS.

Abide by this one,very sincerely.Do not click her pictures while she’s getting dressed,just to be a showoff infront of your friends.You might end up looking like a complete schmuck instead!That girl is not your personal toy and you do not possess any right to fiddle around with her self-respect and dignity,in the society.So,gather up and be a man,not a prick!

7. STAY THE NIGHT 

Don’t wriggle out of her bed for hitting the road at 2 a.m.,in the night.I mean, c’mon ,she’s not going to put a gun to your head the next morning and force you to marry her(Scary,eh?).But you and her both know why you complied to get in the bed together in the first place,and the scary part is not what that was for! So,if you bail on her like that, it makes her feel like a useless throwaway and puts you on her list of “the-top-10-assholes-in-the-world”! So stay the night and save her(and yourself) the embarrassment.

8. BUT DO NOT OVERSTAY… 

Yes, you had a fun time and you might want it all again the next morning,but wait before you let your craving take the plunge.In the warm and soothing light of the day,the haziness has lifted off and chances are she might not even find you attractive for a make out.(Just a possibility!What’s with the frown! God!)

So try holding her hands and kissing her on the cheek and if that doesn’t turn her on,save yourself some dignity,bid adieu and slip rightaway.(No,don’t even bother asking about the breakfast!)

P.S. : Don’t end it too oddly.Manage a smile or two and a “Last night was great.Thanks for the nice memories!”,lest you happen to bump into each other sometime again.And “may be”,there’s a teeny-tiny possibility there that it could blossom into something great,instead. Just saying.
