I was inspired by Christopher McDougall’s book “Born to Run” which I read couple of years back. This had gelled with the ” Running and Living” concept by Mr Robert Varghese https://www.runningandliving.com. Though, I had a back issue which I sustained due to a two wheeler incident ten years back, I was active in sports. I did play cricket and badminton. Both are inactive due to the lockdown now. The best part of Mcdougall’s work is the idea that the human body has been designed to run, right from our stone age ancestors. If we see kids around the house, they are always on the move. The genetic program to run is so strong that the ” flight or fight” adage has been coined. Over the years, due to wrong eating habits and a sedentary life style, we have accumulated excess fat in our body.
Weight gain is a natural process, so is weight loss. It takes time. I have seen both sides of the coin. From fat to fit and fit to fat. In this blog, I would be sharing my experiences of fat loss, the ways I have found all these years to work. Physiologically speaking, when we are born we are all born with more or less the same configurations. Over the course of years, and due to our eating habits and physical activity the body undergoes a morphological evolution over time.
The way a sculptor uses the rock to make beautiful figurines and designs, we can also use excess fat stored both in our skin tissue as well as stored in our abdominal cavity in a way so that we chisel the excess fat into a way, we want our body to look.
I would share my experiences of both fat loss as well as fat gain with you over a period of time. I would like to make it clear that these methods worked well for me and were natural. I urge those with any pre- existing health condition to consult their physicians before attempting any of the methods posted in this blog. This blog is not responsible for any bodily harm caused to individuals who do not exercise necessary precaution.
I would be sharing my fat loss journey along with all my friends, who have entered this mid -life crisis of the bulge as we get stuck to a sedentary lifestyle. I am of the view that, if fat gain is a gradual and organic process, so is fat loss. It needs patience and sticking to strict diet discipline. A senior colleague of mine who had shed quite a lot of flab, told me that the weight loss journey starts with your mouth and not your workouts. I shall share my cravings for food and the fights between hand, mouth and mind in posts to come.
I am sure that, especially for those who want to cut those extra kilos. My scribblings would be of some help.
