Simple Weight Loss Tips for non Aliens

Although there are a million articles on weight loss tips but most of them are more sutiable for aliens than humans, as all outdo each other in terms of complexity and sacrifice.  But actual weight loss tips have to be easy enough to suit humans and be a part of their daily schedule.

First of all it is essential to understand, your body weight is comprised of fat weight and  muscle weight along with some water weight.

We essentially look to lose excess fat weight in any weight loss program. this is indicated by a loss of inches and might lead to an overall weight loss too (at times gain of muscle weight compensates some of the fat loss weight).

Weight Loss Tips 

So these weight loss tips are valid for you if you are a non alien. If you are non homo sapien then I am not qualified to give you weight loss tips but for all others I am a qualified Weight Management Nutritionist and Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine.

The essence behind all weight loss programs is patience and continuity. all the shortcut weight loss tips never work as they are based on sacrifice and over training the body. Both of these can’t be sustained.

Even if you lose weight through this you will gain it back immediately.  Here are some weight loss tips on programming your nutrition plan:

  1. Don’t make huge changes quickly.
  2. Make a complete lifestyle change instead of following a diet, you need to work on moving your body and habit creation, rather than simply drinking soup.
  3. Understand your culture and daily lifestyle and use easily available healthy foods.
  4. Divide meals into smaller portions and eat regularly to ensure proper digestion and prevent overeating
  5. Divide the program into three parts, which I call the ICE phases      Initiation Phase, when you make minor changes for 22 days, Commitment Phase, when you make complete lifestyle changes till you achieve desired weight, Everlasting Phase, when you discover perfect balance of  taste and nutrition, you can read Improving Food Relations for this, to carry on your program for the rest of your life.

Even for those established fitness enthusiasts it is tough losing the final bit of fat, for them here are some weight loss tips for the stubborn fat:

Getting rid of stubborn fat while maintaining muscles is what every intermediate level trainee wants. Shredding therefore is of importance to people who have already being on a healthy journey. For these people it's more about exercise and food management than exercise and form learning. Keeping that in mind, if you desire to burn stubborn fat and retain muscle try, Strength Training 2 to 8 reps of Heavy Weight as per your own one rep max for 4-5 sets of exercises, try to onvolve as many compound exercises as possible. Do around 4 to 5 exercises per muscle group per day depending on your schedule. HIIT high intensity interval training involves bursts of high intensity followed by bursts of lower intensity of a variety of functional exercises. The rest between exercises is the lower intensity variation rather than a complete stoppage. With these you can enegage in more calorie burn in 15 minutes than 50 minutes of moderate cardio. Protein plays a major role in muscle recovery and development, hence upping its intake to as much as 2gm per kg of body weight is recommended, along with this dietary fibre is essential during shredding. Rest through proper sleep along with an exercises schedule which ensures all muscle groups enough rest is critical for recovery and muscle gains.

Nightmares to New Perspectives

We all know the feeling of waking up with a pounding heart, maybe a drop of sweat on the brow, semi recollecting the nightmares that  just traumatized your unconsciousness. A force of nature you have no control over, as it captures your sleeping imagination and takes you through a whirlwind of almost real emotions.

The aftermath can be a sleepless night, which turns out really bad for your mind state and under eyes the next morning.

The HAT Trick of nightmares

Imagine waking up from your nightmares at the exact same time,  for three consecutive nights. This Hat trick can trick the smartest of us more than Mohammad Shami did to those last three Afghani players.  At that point you try understand the parts of it which you loosely remember, without success.

I decided to fulfill some of my 10-2 delta sleep for better health and mind frames some 4 nights back.  The grappling with the bed lasted a little longer but I was off to sleep by 10:30.  A sudden jolt shot me out of sleep, and at 1;27 AM I was exorcising my pillow from the demons I thought had got into it.

The next night a similar story, even after using books, scented candles and eye patches. The third night even Eckhart Tolle audio books couldn’t prevent the brain games.

The AFTERMATH

Most of these aspects in life are unfathomable but I could make bits and pieces of sense out of whatever the nightmares hinted at. though they are really personal for everyone, I through my suffering figured out how to nullify them for everyone.

So in the morning I called my sister for an official green tea summit at our dining hall. and said, ” From today onward’s we have to set intentions, the quality of our gifted brains has to evolve more and for that we have to work on these aspects:

  1. Whomsoever in this cosmic domain is worthy of anger, hate or ill will from our side, we have to send that person love and good energy.
  2. If we see our mind going out of track and wishing bad or complaining about someone who is wronging or has wronged us, we have to have the mindfullness to stop and replay point 1. Wish those people well and move on.
  3. We will consciously base our life on positive energy, and that means even with the ones we know have done us wrong, as they are capable of bringing out the worse in us. This side of ours will never harmfully impact anyone else more than it does us.

The POSITIVE PERSPEcTIVE

The world will offer us a lot of baits to turn bitter, this bitterness swells up and harms only the person it is inside. The point is to prevent yourself from walking this path. We are all at different levels of awareness and this element of negativity can make the best of us dance to its tunes.

The smarter ones can find so many more reasons not to forgive, forget and move on. But this resentment does nothing but burn up your own positive energy, one which can be used to add so much to the world.

Your nightmares are such a personal thing, that even if you are at your communicative best you cant make another person feel what you went through. So it is best you deal with it by enhancing your inner working, the ones few people are aware off.

Your liberation from this web of the world will when you practice the free will to forgive, have gratitude and bless even the ones who do you wrong.

Namaste

WisDumb – Unlearn and Unleash

The perfection of your childhood gets incinerated by the dragon that is time.  As the mind is robbed by thoughts and  society inspired layers of ego, time chews upon your dreams getting you involved in a phantom game of thrones, which you are destined to lose.

This WisDumb grows on you, setting you up to seek stability and  respect as per social norms,  crippling your natural fragrance in the process. Leaving you like an underdeveloped robot waiting to be replaced.

But not before making you miserable.

This article urges you to unlearn and unleash you authentic self in order to chase the riches even death won’t be able to part you with. Adobe_Post_20190403_122416

The Purse Suit of Happiness

The problem about this rat race is, even if you win, you still remain a rat.  That’s why aimlessly chasing cheese will devoid you from enjoying the is-ness of the moment.  The chase is endless like a pitless hole, greed has a cancerous growth, it will never let you be satisfied. That’s why as you grow old, conscious attempts to unlearn  influences and deconditioning yourself are essential.

The same is preached by all religious and spiritual practices, silencing the mind, inner peace, thoughtlessness and focus, all are ways of silencing the ego inspired mind, so as to rekindle the flame of your inner child.  The one you lost in the process of justifying yourself to everyone around.

Check this out :

Chasing Consequences

The society forces you to chase consequences, something which is never in your hands. Just like Doctor Strange sees infinite possibilities for the future to pan out, similarly your vision of the future is just a possibility but the present moment is a reality.

As you get so engrossed in envisioning a better tomorrow you most certainly overlook the magic of the moment in hand. Not contributing your full self to this moment is a recipe for an unfulfilled future.

Who is to Blame?

Brands and media play a major role in establishing what you consider happiness, by conditioning you sub consciously. The need to unlearn the brand derived definitions is now more than ever. Otherwise you are bound to become hollow inside while endlessly  chasing outer luxuries

Even parents are to be blamed for this , as their own unfulfilled aspirations are enforced upon their children. Children these days are born with a to do checklist. Its unfair to enforce these without understanding the natural flair of the children.  This is why so many children fail at being a good doctor and engineer, while they could have really changed the world by doing something they really loved.

Thirdly every influencer  or celebrity, who partakes in advertisement to earn money irresponsibly, without having a true connection with what they sell is  to Blame.

Unlearn and Unleash

Adobe_Post_20190414_082545

There are two ways of combating this, one is to prevent the conditioning from childhood or to unlearn and decondition your mind later on in life.

This is for all the adults who have elevated their understandings to gauge their entrapment. It’s time to dissolve your ego, whichever way you want,  unlearn and unleash your true potential.

The maximum you will achieve with  your WisDumb is a mirage of stability and some money, which never guarantees happiness.

But, if you unlearn socially derived habits and welcome back your inner authentic self, you will be able to be paid for something you call play.

You will be able to etch your own niche is history and change the world with the genuine expression of your soul.

If you can just kill fear and silence the society to believe in the beauty of your dreams, you will be supported by all the energies  of this cosmos and the wealth of rewards you will unlock are unimaginable.

GURU – The Real Alchemist

GOD sent me in the world of both dark and light, it was my GURU who illuminated my soul  from darkness to the light of GOD.

When the GURU( the one who takes from darkness to light), the teacher, and  SHISHYA (disciple) align, the perfect conditions for the flow of Godly energy takes place.

Such is the majesterial aura of this symbiosis, a win win energy exchange, even the lights of a thousand Suns  is dimmed in front of it.

GURU
There is no greater, purer, more powerful bond in this cosmos, than the one formed between the guru and his disciple.

A bond formed out of enlightenment and awakening.  Initiated by something as small as the instilling of a new idea in an individual  it leads to the awakening of a  single consciousness followed by the cumulative consciousness of the Cosmos.

My mother and three Maternal aunts are all teachers, now my sister is also a teacher, I have had the privilege of being around all these wonderful energies of giving since birth, which has shaped me into a giver myself. It has also helped me understand that giving is the ultimate pleasure.

The joy of seeing a seed sprout, the one you nurtured in whatever little way you could, is the ultimate pleasure anyone can feel. Recognition of this is not required, the feeling is enough.

Teaching  Leads to More Learning

GURU

Teaching is most humbling as when you teach, you constantly get to learn how little you know and that keeps you inquisitive for more.

Teaching is not as simple as conveying what you know , in the way you know it, to others.  A guru is required to master whatever his subject is in such a way that she can communicate the information to a scientist or a Kindergartner in a way both understand.  All human minds function differently, the art of being a teacher involves recognizing these subtleties and then aligning the information to be conveyed in  a way, that it is best absorbed by your student.

This also leads to more learning, as not only the information, but all surrounding  knowledge around it has to be gathered,

While the intelligent ones know,

The Wise know how to convey what they know so that everyone understands

Personal Notes

With my practice of being a health and lifestyle coach, I have made sure to share as much knowledge with others, for this I have ensured that I have a deep understanding and continuous learning of the subject. This enable me to create newer routes to the information based upon the person in front of me.

Teaching Helps pass on lessons beyond books

GURU

A Guru puts information in such a way that the student who knows how to read between the lines gathers much more than what the book offers. May it be education, religious or spiritual practice, or any other sort of learning, having a Guru is a gateway to unlock wisdom beyond the words in the book.

Personal Notes

I am sure you all remember your first teacher from playgroup. She couldn’t do much with books, yet she sowed the seeds of curiosity and inquisitiveness in your being.  In my case, it was my mother and  later on in life every time I got a chance to visit her playgroup,  I saw her creating same sort of awe in the eyes of the tiny students.

GURU- THE REAL ALCHEMIST

God sent you on earth as a basic mortal, it is only through the illumination of a GURU that you become GOLD.

Imagine the power a GURU  possesses, when any one of his student is capable of changing the world, imagine the GURUS behind the most iconic world changers in the world, and how there efforts contributed to the luxuries we cherish now.

Imagine if  Steve Jobs didn’t have a kindergarten guru to introduce help him spell APPLE, how different the world would be ?

Imagine if  Mahender Singh Dhoni didn’t have a guru to teach him how to hold a bat, there  would be no helicopter shot.

I am blessed to have all my teachers from school, my masters in the field of work and all my friends who have come to teach me lessons which have led my to develop a hunger for learning more. and consequently passing on the knowledge to others around me.

Portion Control – Living Life one Byte at a Time

Life has a very natural way of enriching you with experiences.

Usually all of life’s experiences have a deeper underlying meaning waiting for  your awareness to be evolved enough to notice them.  But due to the vast stream of data, and lack of portion control on your part,  you overlook most of these simple cues.

This is why spending QUALITY time with oneself and nature is so essential,. It  assists you in evolving the part of your lives which is least visible but most valuable, your awareness.

One such beautifully enriching enriching experience I was obliged with was,

my not so little labrador, Bounty, was blessed with a litter of 5 pups 2 months back, tending to them was most engaging and enlightening. A turn of events which helped me understand many facets about life, none more significant than living life one byte at a time.

Portion Control – The art of  restraint

54517550_316478245679601_6764153799880736768_nJust like simply being mindful of the bite of food you ingest makes you healthier if you can only restrain yourself from being available to  all the endless bytes of information the universe throws your way,  you will be more present, alive, happy, healthy, grateful, fulfilled, helpful and make everyone around you awe just the way when they first see a little puppy with love in it’s eyes.

This Art of Restraint was useless till the last generation when there were no smart devices and internet so the bytes of information were significantly lesser,  when lifestyle were mobile and jobs not stagnant, the food and meal size and timings were a natural portion control.

But now life is different and we need to adapt or perish.

A BYTE IS A BITE

In a world where Terrabytes of information is available to your consciousness every second,  you usually bite off more than you can chew. This takes away much of the value from the task or taste at hand and also leads to digestive disorders of brain and body.

The bite that you feed your body is not much different than the byte that you feed your brain. You can’t live without both but have to control the portions in both cases for your physical and mental well being.

Both Bites fuel you but an overload leads to disease.

Portion Control in FOOD, FUN FAMILY

If you over engage in any byte of life it loses its excitability.

That’s the reason why,

 When you overeat your favorite food it starts becoming bland just like your relationship after a few years from when you get married to your girlfriend.

The 14th piece of cake has less chances of giving you the same tastegasm as the first one but is more likely to make you puke your heart out.

Technology is a boon making life easier  but over-engaging  with your smart phone is detrimental to your mental health, as the mega bytes of  unavoidable information, makes you dissolve your cognitive abilities and  makes you a programmed bot.

The famous Indian saying “HOUSE’S CHICKEN IS LIKE PULSE” stands true for all of you and me. The more time you spend with family or with anyone, you tend to take them for granted.

People in bigger cities, where the quantity of humans and thereby experiential  BYTES are more, value the people and their surroundings lesser as compared to village or rural dwellers, leading to better quality and values of small city dwellers.

Portion Control Life

The desire for more makes you overeat just like it makes you overindulge in information all around you. If you have ever been around wiser minds,  you will only figure out the only folly in humans is overthinking. Unlike the canines, who exemplify living for the moment, tributes to Eckhart Tolle, humans live for every moment other than the present moment.

The past and the future are both infinite, you can dwell on the misgivings and misfortunes of the past endlessly and still fail at completely describing their follies, similarly you can worry about the infinite possibilities the future will shape up in like Doctor Strange and still be wrong.

Instead of all this facade, just be awake to life as it unfolds itself One Byte at a Time, and you will discover true divinity in yourself.
