Struggling with weight loss and balanced diet?

Losing sounds easy, but takes almost the breath when comes to the action! This is what I’m struggling with today. I’ve been chubby since the beginning and enjoy food a lot, but it started showing on my body nowadays. Every day I start from, “Yes, I’ll start it from tomorrow.” and many tomorrows passed away till now. Talk about yesterday, I was roaming the streets for an evening walk and then just a random woman hoped, “Oh Hi!! Please let me know if you want assistance in losing weight.”

I’ve researched a lot on this whether it is stress eating, or it is mindful eating, late-night eating, distracted eating, small or large portions, etc. Even though many sorts of diets like 16:8 dating, satvic diet, liquid diet, fruit diet, low-carb diet, and raw diet. But the more I studied, I found that the count number of times we will eat, we’ll hit out insulin. Insulin which will help to burn our fat if not consumed more. For this we should lower the portions and count of our diet to minimize the triggering of insulin and second, we should stop consuming sugar. Sugar is considered as half glucose and half fructose. Glucose will provide you the energy, but the fructose is not good for insulin as increases the volume of insulin in our body.

So, I’ve figured some facts about my body like, I cannot digest direct spicy or heavy meal contains carbs or fats on empty stomach. I have to start my day with warm water, followed by the fruit bowl around 12 pm. Also, I cannot have a full meal during my lunch because afterwards I feel bloated and loaded as I have a full-desked 9-6 job. When I reach home, I’m hungry bear, and then regrets after eating.

After all this failure, I decided to regulate my regime as I need to be rigid and strict because it’ll directly gonna affect my future if I kept remaining sitting. Being Indian, I decided to keep my diet and regime simple as we usually don’t have to bring groceries every day and can afford a dietician. So, this will be routine from tomorrow as follows:

First thing to start your system in the morning, Warm water to start with your choice of natural add-ons like gooseberry juice, lemon, turmeric, cinnamon, honey etc.

Afterwards 1 hour of workout, first stretching, then body-weight or weight lifting exercise, and wrapping with cardio and stretching.

Then coffee around 11 am, then fruit bowl at noon.

My lunch will be around 1 pm including large bowl of salad, Dal (lentil soup) or Sabzi with one Chapati and two eggs (or yoghurt). You can keep changing your lunch according to your preference.

Around 4.30, I’ll have one cup of green tea with some convenient snack options like lotus nuts (makhana), roasted grams (Bhuna Channa), 2 biscuits sometimes, or any fruit of your choice.

I also enjoy oatmeal consisted of little milk, honey, one spoon peanut butter, some nuts and seeds a pinch of honey. This I can count on my comfort foods after Dal Chawal.

I will prefer not to eat at night as I don’t want to trigger the insulin again, but if I will ever feel more hungry, a small bowl of soup or salad would be good.

This will be my short snippet on how I’ll gonna change my lifestyle. I’ll keep posting on my improvement results with pictures furthermore. Till then, stay tuned

How to make your mind minding your business?

We’re so fucked up with ours lives these days that we don’t want to hold any crap from the next person. And by instance, if any even tiny and small dispute or issue occurs, then our overthinking overpowers the stress level at a higher stage. We’ll be smiling by responding to them, but then thinking of the worse scenarios on the other sides. Instead of talking straight to them, we start taking shitty advice from others, with whom has nothing to do with, but just the tip of gossip.

And the spark ignites by social media platform and the memes and quotes on “minding your own business and maintaining the distances from others as well”. 

Tips on minding your own business

Things I’ve learned so far are:

  • Do not share the things or the matter with others who do not have to do with the same.
  • If you do, they might share a few of their suggestions to resolve things out, but then the issue will be the new gossip factor to others and nothing else.
  • And also there might be the possibilities that to the person you’re sharing the things might organize their new mindset of the person you’re having the issues with, It’s in the positive or negative matter, depends on the seriousness and the context of the matter.
  • There may also have the probabilities that if you share the things, then they may create dispute with the more masala magic of their own the same person you have shared the words, if they hold any further grudges against you.

In the last, I’ll advise you to share your words wisely with whosoever sharing the same.

The Unsatisfactory facet Of Life

Everyone has their own unresolved and incomplete aspects of life which they prefer to keep unopened. So do I have, not related to me but surely linked to one known to me, I would like to keep their identities hidden.

There’s one guy, around 36, married late to a woman during the pandemic. He still didn’t want to get married, but he had to because his parents were forcing him to do so. After marriage, he experienced new things, got to know the female love as a lover, and comes out as totally changed and a new person. 

The woman was average with her looks, but for him, she was everything, he fell in love with her by the time. He accepted her in every way, but she felt the complex every time because she was not so beautiful as everyone out there.

She started working at a very young age, so had very hard hands with kitchen stuff, don’t know how to cook, even hustling with the basic household after. But her mother in law was very supportive and allow her to learn with time.

But then something drastic happened that nobody could thought it off, everyone came to know that she cannot be get pregnant ever in her life, though everyone was aware of this there in her maternal home before she got married, still, they hide the truth from him. When the reports came, he asked her the reason in a very loving manner, she knew the reason was related to her ex-boyfriend, but she still hasn’t uttered any word, they sent her to her parents home. The situation came up to the divorce now, according to his family, she did fraud to him. His parents are not satisfied now he got thought that he got cheated with a woman, nor were satisfied when he chooses to be single.

According to me, she might be wrong where she preferred to keep the things hidden, but there might be a thought somewhere in her sub-conscious mind to get settled, having a husband, family, and she can adopt a child later, as every girl dreamt of someday this to have happened.

Social Covers: We All Have One In Our Trues

Happy New Year to my Chip Chop Family! I really wish the best for all of us towards 2021.
What I’m observing is, the world(including myself) is running, running into the crowd of getting better and earning more from one another, the more we’ve started holding on to the masks called “Social Covers”. Pardon please, I’m no one to make any statement on this, the world has already been through a lot in 2020, that we became more conscious of our health, both physical and mental, especially in lockdown, where human contact stated prohibited. This taught us to be independent and to enjoy our own company because we cannot rely even upon the ones who’d somewhere promised to be with us no matter what, and when this came to practice, some of them lose, some prove it to be in a better way, especially who never promised such thing.
Which comes up the solution is, promises and expectations sucks, even though if we think like if we love someone, those things generate automatically, but not in every scenario. Although I’m sharing my own experience of 2020, I accept, It was not up with the mark, but I learned a lot.
The First covering of this ‘Social Cover’ named was, Men are not supposed to get hurt and feel weak or cry even if something dishonest or miserable happens, and if he does so, he’ll be taken too weak to be sweet for society or the outer world that he should keep in perseverance.

The second was, how independent could women can get, but she should not be supposed to have a partner before marriage, she should not step out alone after 9, No matter how good she is in her office or business work or how much she is earning, but she needs to be brilliant in households,
If she lacks somewhere, there will be questions on her upbringing then.

So many questions, so many experiences, so much to learn more, but still a dilemma will continue…
