The Power Of Routine In Strong Discipline!

We would naturally assume that the mundane and routine chores are boring.

But there’s at least one area where a repetitive routine is a better way to be vividly positive and strongly disciplined.

This one is from experience. For a healthy workout to supplement Intermittent fasting, I do yoga and suryanamaskar during the fasting window.

Yoga is generally practiced in groups and under the guidance of a Yoga Master, who in turn brings in variations to keep up the participant interest.

But I want to do yoga which I learnt, at my convenient time.

This is where the routine comes in. A disciplined completion is better facilitated by following the same routine. It’s like learning it by heart.

And I manage to complete all the steps systematically and in the same order. The only change is that of the increase periodically of the number of repetitions.

Experts say one should have variations. Perhaps it’s better. But my way is sure way of doing it alone regularly.

A Wellness Group, And It’s Working

We are a whatsapp broadcast group focusing on wellness through Intermittent Fasting.

Ours is a small group, making personal attention quite possible. As the originator of the group, I get myself trained as a wellness coach.

In just less than six months, the group is enjoying some positive results and we are looking forward to maximising the good that we have begun to experience.

By being a broadcast group, individual identity is private and only me, the coach has a global view. Feedback are shared within the group with identity kept confidential. This success sharing is the secret of greatness of the group and the best form of handholding to stay on course.

We have identified the following key success factors:

– Fasting is without any calorie intake. Best food during fasting other than water is black coffee without flavours like chicory etc.

– Minimum fasting period is 13 hours, usual 16 and ideal 24 hours at least once a week. Some people do something like three consecutive days, but no one in the group has reported anything more than 24 hours. After 13 hours energy requirement is from the stored fat. The longer the time after 13, the higher the consumption of stored excess fat.

– Autophagy (self eating) a Nobel Prize winning stage is the ultimate aim. At this stage body cleans damaged and defective cells and grow new good ones. Growth hormones generated and even reversal of ageing happens, in addition to curing/ preventing deadly things like cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

– Positive results reported by participants in the group include- improved energy levels, weight loss, blood sugar stability, improved concentration, less stress etc.

– Sustained Weight loss is not a key aim, but can be accelerated by going for Keto diet while eating. That’s mostly natural fat, moderate protein and low carbs.

– Exercise is recommended, and best done while on fasting window. High intensity interval training being the best form.

This is a group you would want to join. You can be a participant and share ideas with the group keeping personal identity and privacy intact. You get all the benefits of being in a genuine group.

If interested to join, please send your whatsapp number to mine: +91 9400056031.

(Suggestion, those with any conditions or medications, please consult the doctor before fasting, say more than 16 hours)

Hope to see more of you enjoying the benefits and privileges of this wonderful group.

A Wellness Group, And It’s Working

Milestone! Lightest in 25 Years.

This is an important milestone. I weigh the lowest in some 25 years, if not 30, thanks to Intermittent Fasting.

It’s important because the weight loss is accompanied by renewed energy, enthusiasm and discipline.

To me, Intermittent Fasting is the best wellness movement that has happened so far. It’s very well explained and proven through some detailed and serious study, which include Nobel Prize winning research.

Benefits of intermittent fasting include generation of new human growth hormones, cleaning repairing and growing cells, prevention and even possible cure to deadly things like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cancer, heart problems and even diabetes.

The increased energy and enhanced mood has assisted me in following a regular fitness and workout schedule like 12 sets of suryanamaskars, one hour yoga, swimming and even weight training. And I feel good after these heavy workouts.

Frankly, this is not just boasting. The intention is to share the experiences and get my friends also to benefit from this regimen.

I would be much better off if I had good control over my food during the eating time of the Intermittent Fasting schedule. This is something I must be working on now, in addition.

And to speak about intermittent fasting and the good effects, we should be aware of various industries getting affected and we can expect some actions from them. I can think of the food industry getting worried. So be prepared for some organised campaign against this good thing.

I may also say that it’s time to channel some of my good energy towards noble causes. One of them could be the commitment towards planting trees in a barren land.

And I wish to get and support maximum number of Intermittent fasting followers. Let’s do it together and do it better with the help of a whatsapp broadcast group. Since it’s a broadcast group, individual privacy is assured.

I invite my friends to try and view a combined treasure trove of information that we have in the group. Just sent your whatsapp number to mine +91 9400056031 and enjoy the benefits.

Privacy assurance is reiterated.

Punch or Pump! What Makes A Difference!

One way to assume an aggressive posture in working out is to think about something or someone who makes you angry and bring out the anger forcefully.

The best in this is the punch bag and what a lovely feeling when we imagine punching the opponent with all the aggression.

But do we get exhausted and unhappy as anger doesn’t bring happiness.

Now, imagine we bring in some passion into the workout schedule! There’s definitely a difference.

And how about some sweetener! Like a joint program with a loved one! Or jointly in a like minded group with similar objectives! There’s happiness for sure.

Best when the sessions are done together. But what if the partner is not at the same place! Don’t worry, there’s happiness in exchanging notes remotely.

Follow the program, punch or pump vigorously for the desired outcome. And exchange the success stories.

There’s happiness and companionship; without exhaustion.

Autophagy, the Science of Getting Rid of Unwanted Cells in the Body.

Everybody with excess fat in the body, wants to get rid of it.

I am one of them and now follow the intermittent fasting technique with some remarkable success.

When you are in such a program, one of the ways of getting better in it, is to share experiences and support each other, from among similar minded people.

I have a few of my friends supporting and sharing experiences, which is priceless.

Right now we are on a question of what would be the best food choice during the eating window of intermittent fasting.

And now I chance upon a write up on ‘Autophagy’ and there are some tips to get better in what we are doing.

We can’t do everything that’s written as good. But we can pick and choose our own individual routine and see if it works well.

I am now in the process of doing that. Hopefully we will have more interested friends in joining in the support group.

The idea is to get rid of excess fat and now the unwanted cells through the steps in autophagy, while aiming to loose weight, tone up and feel energetic and healthy.

All those who are interested in more information on Intermittent fasting and autophagy are welcome to join in, to share experiences and for mutual support.

Pranayama and Plank

Are two of the most desirable workout disciplines we should include in our exercise regimen.

I must admit that I am guilty here on both counts. That’s after learning both and recognising both as simple and doable anytime, anywhere.

As such, by posting this blog, I am urging myself and my friends here to make an earnest effort to incorporate both in our lifestyles.

Of course, plank is strenuous, requires some stamina but we don’t have to do 120 seconds till we are comfortable with it. Let’s start with 30 seconds and progress. Let’s do it once or preferably in a few sets for about 5 days a week.

But Pranayama is simple. We don’t have to do it by assuming a yogic legs on thighs posture. We can do it while sitting on a chair and relaxed. Just that we follow the correct breathing and holding steps.

I am returning to them. Let’s do the usual mutual support.

On Intermittent Fasting Again

I am still on it, religiously on the 16.8 schedule seven days a week.

Not very easy, to go starving from dinner to next day lunch, but discipline is something I am accused of!

The good thing about this dinner to lunch is that you don’t make other people inconvenienced. That’s, people don’t generally join or call you for breakfast; but they do for lunch and dinner.

And as part of discipline, I do 12 Surya Namaskars with 45 minuets of Yoga in the morning and alternate on half hour swimming and strength training in the evening, six days of the week.

But the weight stays constant after an initial 5 pounds loss. Of course, I started to look at the mirror again as it has started looking better.

Then the idea of sharing experiences and learning from there and a friend suggested Facebook group.

Went there to join. The best and most popular one has Just one restriction ‘women only’.

Instead of crying discrimination, let me bask in the knowledge that I am in good company.
