Let's agree we all have days when we slip up our 'perfect diet' and give in to that piece of cake or samosa. Call it social pressure, a friend's birthday party or just a usual comfort food spree, the reasons to sin are many with an equal number of excuses to avoid exercise. All this adds to the extra pounds in the most unwanted areas. Obviously, it is not possible to live like a saint in the highly social and junk food world of ours, but what we can do best for ourselves is either avoid these foods or make up for it by burning the calories consumed.

But what if you could look at junk foods by the amount of exercise required to neutralize the calories for each? It's a fight or flight situation. If your love for junk food is real, you'll overcome this hurdle, if not, you might stop eating junk food altogether!


(The duration of exercise is given for a reference man of 60 kgs which can be calculated for your weight.)

She has worked with corporates such as HDFC and Standard Chartered as well as BPOs and MNCs on the Right ways of eating and living! Fitness in literal terms means improving 5 essential components of the body i.e. flexibility, cardio respiratory endurance, muscular endurance, muscular strength and body composition. Most of the physical activities and training programs are designed to work on one or all of these components, which is the ideal way of doing it. But do common people like us understand such a complicated process? No. All we understand is how we feel about our body, mind and spirit, right? The most important thing is the feel-good factor and feeling great within our skin in our own capabilities. Fitness, hence, becomes a very relative term and each person\'s definition of it depends on their interest, physical abilities and goals. It is the ability to physically and mentally do what you want to do, when you want, and with full ease and comfort. It is in your power to complete a task without any limitation arising from stress, injury, illness, low confidence, etc. For someone it might relate to body and for others mind. Here are some examples of what fitness might mean to different people:   Waking up fresh and active in the morning Being able to do household chores with complete comfort Being able to move things easily Working all day without fatigue or tiredness Walking up the stairs to your house without losing breath Playing with children when they want to Driving long distances without lethargy Fitting into your 5-year old dress Buying a dress one size smaller than last year Following your workout plan for a week Being able to run for 30 minutes straight Running a marathon successfully Standing in a queue comfortably for a long time Getting a peaceful, undisturbed sleep every night Having glowing skin and luscious hair Having a cycling race with friends and winning it Building great muscular physique Walking your dog for an hour Combating diseases, especially during weather changes Have you found your own fitness mantra?
Fit Heart, Healthy Body

She has worked with corporates such as HDFC and Standard Chartered as well as BPOs and MNCs on the Right ways of eating and living! All of us at some stage in life have experienced the feeling of being famished without reason. The panting and palpitation are common things amongst all urbanites! Basic movements like walking also seem like a lot of activity just because we\'re not used to it anymore. We laze on our cosy couches, and get things done at the click of a button. The ease and comfort makes us so lazy that moving our joints becomes a tedious task. But just like your car has an engine that needs to be maintained to perform well, your body also has a natural engine called the heart! This fist-sized organ performs an unimaginable job even in the most edgy situations to just keep you alive and going. From pumping blood every second to your organs to filtering the bad blood in your body, it does it all. And we take for granted. Give it some exercise and make its muscles stronger to help it perform its work without stress! Try out any of the cardio exercises below for a stronger and healthier heart:   Brisk walk: Just 30 minutes in a day is good enough to help strengthen your heart. Jogging/Running: The higher the intensity, the better for your heart! The trick is to start slow and steadily increase your speed. This helps condition your heart. Interval training: You can do this by running for a minute, walking for 3 minutes, and repeating it for 30 minutes. You can also increase or change the time limit as per your capacity. Aerobics/Dance/Zumba: These are fun ways to work out your heart muscles. They also motivate you to work out as you are in a group and go along with the groups pace. Swimming: A simple low-impact exercise that gives your heart a good pump and also refreshes you after a hectic work day. Cycling: A fun way to exercise, especially if you are part of a cycling gang or like to roll on empty roads early morning with friends. Just hire a bike and get going. Skipping: A convenient form of exercise that can be done any time and anywhere, even in the premises of your house, compound, or office. You can carry a skipping rope with you wherever you go. Functional training: This includes boot camp kind of activities like jump squats, walking lunges, mountain climbers, burpees, etc. which not only condition your heart but also tone the muscles of your body. Suryanamaskar: You can do these as per your capacity and give your body a good cardio workout. Make sure to get your form right to do it under the guidance of a trainer. Stair climbing: If nothing else works, just take a flight of stairs up and down for 30 minutes at your pace, which can turn out to be a great heart working exercise. So what are you waiting for? Start training your heart for a healthier future!
