All fat is not bad fat..

A plate of hot chicken curry and Rice.

There is a strong misconception that fat is bad, which is incorrect. Excess fat is bad. In my first post where I had putforth the philosophy behind sculpt fat, I had clearly targeted two types of excess body fat, viz, visceral fat and sub cutaneous fat.

The problem with the modern age is that we are eating rich food like our forefathers did, but unfortunately not doing hard manual work like our forefathers. Our food habits contribute close to 80 to 90% of our fat presence both physiological and anatomical.

Some of us are blessed to have gyms and equipments at home and office. I am not a big fan of weights, as I feel that when you use weight muscles contract and loose their flexibility. I feel that endurance and flexibility are key. As a novice badminton player, I watch the best play on YouTube, say it’s a match between chongwei vs lin dan or the recent momota vs ginting. They are great athletes first and they have added the skill, techniques on their already pre existing endurance and flexibility.

I am happy that I have got excess fat in my belly as it gives me a reason to work out. Once the excess fat gets sculpted, one should be able to see the ‘six pack’ which is nothing but your abdominal muscles or core called as ” Rectus abdominis”. For many of us, who are single packers 😭😭😭we have a long way to go to make those muscles come out of obscurity to prominence✌✌✌

Regular and disciplined diet and work out would help. I used to run, play badminton and do yoga. Thanks to corona my single pack got much more stronger. Corona has hit me in a different way, not below the belt, but on the belt itself!!!! I am sure many of you must have gone through this transformation in these past two months. But change is the only truth, we should go towards positive change through efforts and sculpt all those excess fat through a good workout.

Feel free to comment, I am open for questions and suggestions…
