Honey Honey!

Friday, July 10, 2015

It's summer again - the season of mangoes, watermelons, ice creams, smoothies and all the sweetness you can imagine! Yuhuu! :D However, there's a slight problem - I ain't ready with my summer body. :'( The picture on the top with a large belly protruding out - yes, that describes my position exactly! However, this is the case every year - I am never ready with my "summer body"! I think my summer body has gone into hibernation and will return after another 25 years! Last year, I resorted to crash diets but they did more harms than benefits! The crash dieting causes nutritional deficiency which leads to further problems like weakness, moodiness, irritability, etc. So this summer I decided to try something new and I stumbled upon Honey Diet!



Speaking of Honey, the first thing that comes to mind is Dabur Honey! Honey is really good for your body - it aids in weight management (my goal), good source of energy, aids in digestion, helps with cough and cold, and most importantly is very beneficial for giving you a beautiful skin! I earlier used to apply face packs which uses honey as an ingredient for a clear skin as well! Honey is way better than sugar as it provides more sweetness with lesser calories and is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, etc. So I went to Dabur Honey's website which is really interactive. I checked my BMI (which was normal :P ), read all about honey including its benefits, and learned a lot.  Dabur Honey also has a 3-click fitness test, which asks details about you - height, weight, calorie intake, etc and then shows you the right diet for your body type! The test gave my ideal diet plan and also a lot of do's and dont's for my fitness regime. 

There are many ways by which you can consume honey in diets and also use it as an substitute for sugar. You can have honey with warm water in early mornings (really effective to lose weight, do add a bit of lemon juice for additional taste), honey strawberry milkshake in breakfast, honey fruit salad as a mid-morning snack, honey noodles or honey parantha pizza for lunch and so on. The recipe for these and many more are available here. If you want to see videos by famous chef Vikas Khanna (he's hot!), they are available here. I'm strictly adhering to honey diet these days and hopefully I'll be ready with my summer body soon! Do try these along with light exercise and yoga (yes, the one that Mr. Modi was teaching the world the other day!) and let me know how well this diet suits you as compared to other crash diets!

Cricket-Mania!

Cricket has always thrilled me - ever since my childhood when Sachin was the hero! Remember, Shah Rukh and Sachin together for a Pepsi advertisement, that was my most favourite advertisement, considering it had both my fav heros! My friend used to support Rahul Dravid and thus, for each match we kept comparing their scores and other stats, even though I didn't understand many of those stats! :P Then came the world of Nehra, Dhoni, Yuvraj, Laxmans and Raina but the love for Sachin never went away!

Things haven't changed much ever since. The only change has been time, and no I'm not being philosophical. As kids, we had enough time to watch these matches but now, stuck up in the professional world, there's hardly any time left! I have to survive by just checking the scores every hour or so! But there was a match I couldn't miss- Sachin's last test match! I had prepared that I will definitely watch the full match, but the day before the final match, my boss called me and informed me of the "very important" meeting the next day! I couldn't take a sick leave as well as the deal was too important for the company. So I had to be there or it will cost me my job! 

Stuck between my love for the Little Master and my job, I dragged my feet to office the next day. However, UC browser came to my help! It has a special service known as UC cricket which provides the best cricket service in India including Live Scores & Latest News. It had Featured match reminders, score cards, live commentary. Ever since morning, I kept checking the scores on it continuously. Like a teenage school kid, I kept my phone in my lap , hidden from the "important" people, and kept on stealing stares at it. How happy I was, thanks to UC Browser, for letting me be updated about my most important match. 

The deal was sealed that day. My boss got so impressed with my work that I even got a raise. And I was just in time to hear "My life, between 22 yards for 24 years....". I remember his exact words and my exact emotions during Sachin's farewell speech. It was the most memorable day for me!

My new favourite is Virat Kohli but the love for legend still remains! :* Although have you seen the comparison sheet between Virat and Sachin's stats. Either that is a lot of coincidence or a bigger cause - a calling for my love by Virat! You never know! :P Who knows, just like Sachin's record, Virat might be a legend too by reaching his 200th test match! or 200th T20! ;)
