About me..

Hi my name is Kabilan. I am from Chennai. I belong to the Indian Defence Accounts Service. In my present assignment, I work for the NITI Aayog. A public policy think tank of Government of India.

In this personal blog, I would posting about my journey about both fat loss and fat gain over time and places of work. My good and bad eating and work out habits, so that anyone who is going through similar problems can find solace and work through with me in reducing excess body fat to remain fit and fab in times to come.

I strongly believe in the adage, ” Health is wealth” and I would be sharing my experiences on my fitness goals, past,present and future which I feel is exorbitant on certain aspects, but still these are still aspirations and work in progress like running a full marathon ( 42 kms…phew !!!) amidst other pressing responsibilities !!!

I am a non – smoker, non drinker and vegetarian, so results might vary as far fat loss is concerned. Persons with existing cardio- vascular issues and other medical conditions should consult their doctors before trying any of the subscriptions in this blog.

I would like to join hands with you in this journey of self discovery and you are free to post your comments on this blog. I believe that as responsive individuals we need to share our learnings in which ever area of life which would benefit one and all.

  7. I am 65. If a moderately over-weight person follows your routine, weight reduction will be substantial in the initial period.

    You have hardly any flab. However, the simple narration has ignited me also to do something.

    In Covid times, I propose to buy a tread mill, so as to start as a beginner . I am 165 cm and weighing 73.5 kg.

    1. Sir. I would suggest to start with a treadmill, especially if the covid cases are more in your vicinity. Take rest alternate days. Do simple stretching,pre and post run, I’ll post the YouTube link.

      Do hydrate yourself before and after run. Have fruit lunch daily. Reduce intake of refined sugar. Keep track of weight every fifteen days. I’m sure, there would be gradual loss of excess flab. The key is moving the legs to burn extra fat.
