Is your daily diet rich in protein ?

Is your daily diet rich in protein ?

When I was pondering for a new topic for my post after writing on the drive for fitness, spiritual fitness, and mental fitness, I thought of writing about the importance of protein. I was in dilemma that in this “new age” of internet where everyone has access to google to know the

  • benefits of protein
  • effects of not having it in sufficient amounts
  • ways to eat the required amount

is it necessary and worthwhile going ahead? So I decided to do a quick survey on FB and discussions with acquaintances to arrive at a decision soon.  I was amazed by the astounding results and comments which I am summarizing below:

Stress Buster – Konkan Getaway

Fitness has quite a unique perspective in everyone’s mind. Some of the common ones that I come across while talking to people are listed below:

Physical fitness guaranteed by Cycling

Physical fitness guaranteed by Cycling

Howdy, dear reader ! I am hoping you have already read my previous post on how I got my drive to embark onto the journey of physical fitness & healthy lifestyle. Additionally, now that you ( a new age indian ) are reading this post would also mean you have found your set of reasons and have the drive to continue on the journey of fitness in the right way. If you have not found your drive or are just a casual fitness reader some part of this post might come across as “Gyaan” to you.

Physical Fitness – Can it be ignored ?

Any basic google search on health benefits of cycling will give you the below list:

  • increased cardiovascular fitness.
  • increased muscle strength and flexibility.
  • improved joint mobility.
  • decreased stress levels.
  • improved posture and coordination.
  • strengthened bones.
  • decreased body fat levels.
  • prevention or management of disease.

The drive for Exercise from within …

The drive for Exercise from within …

The whole essence of the word fitness started with the concept of walking and cycling in my life…

 

Being the New Age Indian

Being a typical new-age Indian, with job in IT and a sedentary lifestyle, the automatic inherent push towards the junk food, missing exercise schedules, avoiding daily walks ( forget jog or run ) and all those ‘standard’ things that am sure each one of you are facing right now or have faced it sometime in your past for sure was increasing day by day. A few set of questions that kept bugging me always are:

  • I am generally active during the day ( take steps instead of elevator, go out to grab a pouch of milk by walking and other such things that I “lol” about now ). Do I need any more exercise ?
  • I don’t feel any pain in my back or neck or anywhere else. Do I need to exercise at all ?
  • How junk is the junk food really ?
  • Is being calorie conscious and missing out on daily fun too naive ? Kya pata kal ho na ho ….
  • Going out to parties and not eating any oily or Maida stuff looks so weird. Would I be “out of the group” if I act differently ?

And many more of these questions… Consequently, I am hoping at least some of you would resonate with some of these questions even now.
