  1. Let's face it, we all have been there, thinking if we should go for it or not. We have all had that locker room talk, discussing all sorts of things about our body hair (and yes, about hair down there as well), and what to do with it. Whether one's partner prefers it all shaved off, trimmed, or present in all its natural glory. The thing is, no matter what, at least once in your lifetime, you will go for a session to trim, shave or wax your body hair off. Now, here is where things get tricky - what do you actually go for - do you shave it all off, wax it off, or just trim it off? Here are a few things that you ought to consider before you finally make the jump: 1. The Pain © Getty Images Remember Steve Carrel getting a wax in 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin'? Well, yes, it can be that painful. Even the manliest of men tend to cry like babies when they go for their first waxing session. Furthermore, The entire experience of getting hot wax applied on your body and then a bunch of hair and some skin pulled off in one go, can leave some serious psychological scars, especially if you plan to go for a full Brazilian. In case you think that you have a very shallow tolerance, we suggest you simply forget waxing, and instead, get things shaved or better yet, trimmed. 2. The Frequency © Getty Images As painful as it may be, waxing your hair off has its advantages. The first and foremost is the fact that you don't need to get it done that often. Shaving, on the other hand though, will ensure that you reach out for that razor every now and then. Also, do consider the fact that the hair regrowth gets denser with time, as does it get quicker. With trimming, you won't get as denser regrowth as with shaving. But, you will need to trim your hair often. 3. The Occasion © Getty Images Chances are that if you find yourself reading this article, you may have a special evening coming up, or an occasion, where you may have to take your clothes off in front of some people (or someone). If that is the case, we suggest you take the timing of your endeavour into consideration. Also, consider that if you plan to do it yourself, you may have some accidents that may leave a cut or a knick where you don't want it to. Try getting things sorted two or three days before your special day. 4. The Outfit © Getty Images If the occasion or the evening that you have planned, does not include you getting in your birthday suit, chances are, you may have some leeway when it comes to getting things done. If you still plan on wearing something that will show some chest and you plan to clean up your act (as you should), we suggest that you go for a close trim, instead of a shave or a wax. That way, you minimise pain, get things done quickly and do not change much. 5. The Comfort © Getty Images This is actually the key to everything - how comfortable are you in getting any of it done? More importantly, how comfortable are you getting things done in some intimate areas by someone else? Of course, you can try and get things sorted yourself, but we would advise against that if you plan to get things done properly. If you plan on getting only a few areas done, selectively, doing it yourself is an easy way to go about. However, if you plan on being comprehensive, do yourself a favour and hire someone to do it.
  2. Back in time, taking a plunge into the cold water only meant complaining. But, in 2019, we are in favour of icy, cold water showers. So, why would anyone even consider getting into this dreadful process? It sounds crazy to put yourself through so much when you are only hoping to gently ease out of the bed in the morning. Well, the icy blast of cold showers will earn you benefits that you never knew before. Take a look! 1. Breathe easy Getty Images Sometimes when you get into the shower, you certainly feel breathless. But, cold showers let you relax and take long breaths, instead of the faster breathing technique you were used to. This gives a massive boost to your body to function the whole day. 2. Muscle Recovery Getty Images Taking cold showers is quite a famous technique in athletes. Blood circulation in the body improves, giving your muscles an opportunity to recover from the night soreness. 3. Improved metabolism Getty Images Another amazing benefit of taking cold showers is that it boosts your metabolism and ultimately helps you lose weight. The healthy fat inside your body works a great deal when given a chance to enter into cold showers, Now, who doesn't wish to have a hot, steamy body? 4. Staying alert Getty Images The shock of cold water instantly revives your body from the sleepy state. Cold water, alongside energising your body, also helps in higher state of alertness. This benefit is literally what we need in our daily lives. 5. Improved hair and skin condition Getty Images Research says that taking cold showers help control loss of natural oils. Cold showers are an anti-ageing process that don't make the natural oils disappear. In fact, they grant us with smoother skin and shinier hair! 6. Prevent Varicose Veins Getty Images Majorly noticed in elder citizens, Varicose Veins take place in our legs and they are quite a common sign of ageing. Cold water can reverse the whole process and stimulate the muscles. 7. Boost testosterone Getty Images Heat can damage the testosterone production, but switching to cold showers can alleviate stress and make sure that your body recovers from the damage caused. Taking cold showers leads to producing the right amount of testosterone. No more 'oops' situations for you!
  3. There is a new trend that Instagram fitness gurus seem to be really embracing right now: Outrightly bashing cardio. Now it's because either they have little to no knowledge of training or they want to speak against the norm for the sake of grabbing attention. If your goal is to look aesthetically pleasing, you want to have muscle and lose fat as well. When both these things are nailed down, you get that physique you have always wanted. There was this study in 2012 that studied exactly the same. They took some men who wanted to lose fat and split them into three groups: 1. Group A did only cardio 2. Group B did only weight training 3. Group C did weight training and some cardio The study was done over the course of 8 months and this is what the research found: 1. The cardio group lost the most amount of weight. Along with this group, the weight training and cardio group also lost a similar amount of weight. © Getty Images With this, we can say that doing just cardio or doing a combination of weight training and cardio is good to lose weight. Cardio is the common factor here in training styles. 2. The weight training group did not lose as much weight but they built some lean muscle mass over the course of the study. The group that did weight training and cardio also gained some lean muscle mass over the course of the study. With this, we can say that doing weight training or doing a combination of weight training and cardio is good for gaining muscle. Weight training is the common factor in this case. Looking at this, you probably may think that if you want to gain muscle, you just need to do weight training and if you want to lose fat, you just need to do tonnes of cardio. Sadly, this is the reality in most gyms. Uneducated trainers who think binary and in a single-dimension approach training this way. Let's look at the benefits of weight training along with muscle building: 1. It improves bone density 2. It reduces sarcopenia or even reverses it 3. It protects your bones and joints 4. It makes you more functional Similarly, the benefits of doing cardio: 1. It improves heart health 2. It improves your endurance 3. It makes you more functional Though there are downsides of doing too much cardio, neglecting it altogether is plain stupid. The key point most people miss out here is 'too much' cardio. © Getty Images Sure, you can get jacked without doing any cardio but how good is that when you climb two floors of stairs and are panting? Oh, and the improved endurance would have a carryover effect to your lifting too. So how much cardio should you do and when should you do it? Typically, these are my recommendations as a coach: When To Do It? Post-workout or outside the gym and away from your weight lifting. This is to ensure you do not deplete your glycogen doing cardio and are fresh enough to do your best when lifting weights. How Much To Do? Depends on the style of cardio you are doing. You can do low-intensity cardio for more time or high-intensity cardio for a shorter time. If you are a beginner or weigh a lot, do low-intensity cardio as that will minimize the risk of injury. Low-intensity cardio - 3 to 4 sessions per week of around 30 minutes. High-intensity cardio - 2 to 3 sessions of 15 to 20 minutes each. So, stop following the cardio-bashers and do some cardio if you want to look aesthetically pleasing.

  4. There used to be a time when steroids were relatively hidden under the covers at the gym. The dudes using it would attribute their gains to some weird diet and training protocol or some garbage supplements that they were using. Not many were open to the fact that they were sticking needles up their butt to look a certain way. Nowadays, steroids have become very common where almost every second guy has had some or the other experience with it. I would not be underestimating when I say steroids are as common as BCAAs in the gym nowadays. The frightening part is the openness and the willingness to use these drugs to look a certain way. The much more frightening part? Unqualified people giving advice and prescriptions on drug pharmacology. I have written a comprehensive article on the bad and the ugly of steroids , which should help you get a better picture. © Getty Images In this article, I want you to think and ask yourself these questions before you decide to do steroids, as at the end of the day, it is your body: 1. Do You Want To Compete As A Pro Bodybuilder? Forget about looking good for a moment. Most bodybuilders use anabolics as they have dedicated their lives to building muscle and getting on stage with others just like them to win competitions. Is that your goal? Do you really want to be a bodybuilder and live that life? If the answer is a no, you do not really need to take steroids. Here I am not saying that you should definitely take steroids to become a bodybuilder. There are shows out there which do comprehensive drug testing and are in reality natural shows. The first thing here is to ensure that you want to make bodybuilding a profession. Doing it the enhanced way or not comes after that. 2. Have You Dedicated Enough Time To The Process? If you look at the top pro bodybuilders, they never jumped on steroids on their first or second year of working out. They developed their work ethic, discipline, and maximized their genetic potential by doing bodybuilding naturally for 5 - 10 years before jumping the gun. Most kids these days think that in their second or third month itself, they need to pop steroid pills or stick injections up their butt. © Getty Images Not only will you not get the maximum out of it, but your basics will also be terrible both in terms of nutrition and training which are the base of bodybuilding. 3. Are You Medically Fit For Steroids? Steroids can potentially have a lot of medical side effects ranging from cosmetic issues of baldness or acne and much more severe issues like stress on the liver, kidney, heart, etc. There have been numerous cases of deaths related to overdosing of steroids or previous medical issues getting severe resulting in death due to steroids. Speak to your doctor and have them onboard to keep a continuous check on your health markers if you decide to jump on gear. 4. Are You In A Good Mental Space? There have been many reported cases of drug abuse, where people got aggressive doing steroids or roid rage and lost their cool and did some harmful things. © Getty Images If you are someone who is continuously stressed or has a very stressful lifestyle, using anabolics may not be the best choice for you until you sort yourself out on this front. Another dilemma with steroids is that once you come off (which many pro bodybuilders do routinely), your strength and muscle won't be the same as that on drugs. Would you be able to deal with that? Would you be able to tame your ego and handle your frustration when you do not look the same at the gym or be able to lift the same heavyweights? 5. Do You Have The Dough To Afford It? Most cheap drugs that are passed on by gym gurus are poor quality drugs or those made for animal use or in underground labs. Not only the quality, but the side effects of these drugs are also nasty. The good quality stuff comes at a price. Add to that the regular blood work, medical tests, your nutrition cost, your training cost, etc. will add up. It is the same as any other sport at the elite level, it takes a lot of time, effort, and money. If you do not have the cash for it now, is it worth taking all the risks by using poor quality stuff?

  5. Does your natural body odour attract potential partners? Maybe. As ridiculous as this sounds, sometimes people are attracted to other people's distinctive odours. We know this probably sounds gross and inexplicable but here's the thing: there is a mysterious phenomenon that can sometimes attract you to your future mate by the way of their odour, and this has been a proven theory known as the body-odour attraction. Before you brush it off as rubbish and think that only people with funny armpit fetishes do this, then you are wrong. Like they show in the movie 'Friends With Benefits' when Justin Timberlake is making out with this girl and she tries to sniff out his armpit hair and the scene, in particular, is absolutely abhorrent. © Getty Images But that's not how it works. Clock back to the last time you were physically attracted to someone. Did you not exactly mind the way they smelt? And I don't mean the scent cover-up, their natural musk and even if it smelled like nothing at all or something so distinctive that you couldn't compare it to anything else and it's so intoxicating that you can't compare it to anything else. Animals secrete pheromones to attract their mates. This is a big part of their mating process. Humans, on the other hand, secrete pheromones, but it isn't clear how they exactly work. Lindsey Bordone, M.D., assistant professor of dermatology at Columbia University Medical Center. (Dermos are also well versed in hormones and endocrinology.) said that: “Humans don't have a functioning 'vomeronasal organ',” she further added, “which is what other animals use to detect pheromones secreted by another animal of the same species. Instead, we sense smells via the olfactory system. Perceivable smells likely do play a role in attraction, or lack of attraction, in people.” Bordone further clarifies which honestly makes sense, It's not the odor you're actually attracted to. You just don't mind it at all because you're attracted to the other person and the underlying scent. However, there's also a catch here. While you may be attracted to a person's underlying scent, that scent is not always their natural musk. It is an intricate combination of their body wash, shampoo, deodorant, fragrance, hair product, fabric-softener sheets, and other scented products used throughout everyday life. Which makes literally every scent out there super unique. In a study*, the female body odour was collected from different bodily fluids, at various times throughout their menstrual cycles. These odours were then ranked by the subjects' male partners. Body odours were found to be perceived as most pleasant smelling, and as longer-lasting, during their ovulatory phase which suggests that pheromones do have a major role to play in catalysing sexual attraction. © Getty Images But there are also other things that can heavily influence your SO's scent. Instant associations with the smell of their moisturizer or a particular flower like say lavender or jasmine that lingers when you kiss or an ingredient like cinnamon is likely. But it should help to know that products you use can majorly influence your BO. There are ways you can use your BO to your advantage. 1. Start With Basic Grooming © Getty Images Body odour could also smell rotten if you don't follow your basic grooming regime. Basically, taking a shower everyday, using an anti-antiperspirant on humid days, and grooming pubic hair. A basic routine can make a huge difference. This helps shape 80% of your BO. 2. Choose Products In Line With The Scent You Like © Getty Images For your scrub, body wash and cleansers, among other products, choose products with a scent that you wouldn't mind wearing yourself. For example, keeping an overarching common scent helps. You could choose from lavender, rose, jasmine or woody musks like redwood. 3. Keep Your Fabrics In Check In humid weather, stay away from synthetic fabrics like polyester. They will make you sweat faster and subsequently ruin your body odour. In some situations, no amount of cover-up perfume or deo helps after. * Kuukasjärvi S, Eriksson CJ, Koskela E, Mappes T, Nissinen K, Rantala MJ. Attractiveness of women's body odors over the menstrual cycle: the role of oral contraceptives and receiver ***. Behavioral Ecology. 2004 Jul 1;15(4):579–84.
  6. If your life revolves around Instagram, you must have already seen the first look of Harper Bazaar's May cover featuring the gorgeous, British actress Jameela Jamil. View this post on Instagram Our May cover â­ï¸ @jameelajamilofficial walks the talk: An unapologetic advocate for body positivity, with a following of nearly two million, she shoots her first-ever cover in India—and the images are not filtered or digitally altered. This is as authentic as it gets. Just like Jameela. • • All images have been #ShotonOnePlus7Pro #ShotonOnePlus (@oneplus_india, @oneplus) Editor: Nonita Kalra (@nonitakalra) Creative director: Yurreipem Arthur (@yurreipemarthur) Fashion editor: Kristen Ingersoll (@kristeningersoll) Photographer: Jennifer Massaux (@jennifermassaux) Hair: Terrie Valazquez Owen (@hair_terrie) Make up: Simone Siegl (@simonesiegl) using hourglass at Starworks artists Suit: Bibhu Mohapatra (@bibhumohapatra) Watch: Tag Heuer Formula 1 Lady (@tagheuer) Earrings and shoes: Dolce & Gabbana (@dolcegabbana) Ring: Bochic (@bochic) Photographers agency: Estelle Leeds Artists management Production( LA): Johnny Pascucci (@johnny_pascucci) & Jason Agron (@jasonagronphoto) at Photobomb Production (@photobombproduction) Production (India): Parul Menezes(@parulmenezes) at P. Productions(@p.productions_) Location courtesy: The Standard, Downtown (@thestandard) A post shared by Harper's Bazaar, India (@bazaarindia) on Apr 29, 2019 at 11:27pm PDT But why are we talking about it? What makes this magazine cover different from any other? Well there are two reasons. First, the cover stands for body positivity, and as you all know Jameela has always been an unapologetic advocate for body positivity who insisted her photographs are sans any sort of digital retouching or airbrushing. It has to be as authentic as it gets, just like her. View this post on Instagram “I think women, particularly, have been discouraged from showing self-pride, whereas it is respected in men. We're shamed about feeling anything other than grateful for any opportunity we earn. And it's time to take back the power. One of the reasons I don't smile in my photos is because I feel like I'm told to smile all the time by men. Otherwise I'm not likable. I look at every inch my body grows as I'm getting older and my metabolism is slowing down, and I think here is a little more space I'm taking in the world,” says @jameelajamilofficial, our cover star this month. • • This image has been #ShotonOnePlus7Pro #ShotonOnePlus (@oneplus_india, @oneplus) Editor: Nonita Kalra (@nonitakalra) Creative director: Yurreipem Arthur (@yurreipemarthur) Fashion editor: Kristen Ingersoll (@kristeningersoll) Photographer: Jennifer Massaux (@jennifermassaux) Dress: Barbara Bui (@barbarabuiofficial) Earrings and Ring: Bochic (@bochic) Hair: Terrie Valazquez Owen (@hair_terrie) Make up: Simone Siegl (@simonesiegl) using hourglass at Starworks artists Photographers agency: Estelle Leeds Artists management Production( LA): Johnny Pascucci (@johnny_pascucci) & Jason Agron (@jasonagronphoto) at Photobomb Production (@photobombproduction) Production (India): Parul Menezes(@parulmenezes) at P.

Yes, that's true! For the very first time ever, Harper's Bazaar India shot an entire cover on the soon-to-be-released OnePlus 7 Pro, and the results were glamorous, honest, raw, and vibrant. The OnePlus 7 launch will take place in three cities simultaneously i.e New York, London and Bangalore on 14th May at 8:15 PM IST.

We cannot wait for the launch to happen, and those of who you can't make it to the event, you can live stream it here.
  7. You must have seen people supplementing Omega 3-6-9 in their diet. In this article, we'll first have a comprehensive look at what these fatty acids are and then we will decide if you actually need to take them as a supplement or not. Omega 3 Fatty Acids Omega 3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids meaning that your body cannot make them by itself and you need to consume it in your diet. The Three most common types of omega 3 are EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA(Docosahexaenoic acid) and Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Omega-3's are a crucial part of human cell membranes and have a number of other important functions, including: â Increasing good cholesterol which improves heart health by reducing triglycerides and blood pressure. â Omega 3's reduce symptoms of psychotic disorders which improve mental health and reduces symptoms of depression. â Consumption of Omega 3's decreases Liver Fat and helps in weight management. â They improve bone density and helps your body to fight against inflammation. © Getty Images Unfortunately, an average adult's diet lacks in omega 3's. This has also contributed to a rise in various ailments like obesity, diabetes and heart disease in the past decade or two. Good source of omega 3 include, fish, chia seeds, walnuts, flaxseeds etc. Omega 6 Fatty Acids Omega 6 Fatty acids are also essential therefore you need to consume them from your natural diet. These fats are primarily used by the body for energy. Linoleic acid is the most common type of omega 6 fatty acid. Though omega 6's are essential, our diet normally consists of more omega 6's than required. The recommended ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 is 4:1, while our diet exceeds this ratio manifolds. Since the majority of foods items are cooked in Oils like soyabean oil or sunflower oil, Indians receive more than what is required of this fatty acid. Other sources like Mayonnaise, cashews and walnuts also contain omega 6, therefore there is hardly any individual who does not get enough of this omega acid from his diet. Omega 9 Fatty Acids © Getty Images Omega 9 is non-essential fatty acid meaning your body is capable of producing it by itself. Since they are non-essential there is no adequate intake recommendation for them. Omega 9 are the most abundant fats in the human body. Studies show that consumption of high monounsaturated fats like omega 9, instead of other types of fats could reduce triglycerides levels and bad cholesterol (LDL). Sources of omega 9 are Olive Oil, Cashews, Almonds, Avocado, Peanuts, and Walnuts etc. Do You Really Need To Supplement Them? With the above information, it is quite clear that there's hardly any need to supplement Omega 6 and Omega 9. You just need to supplement Omega 3, that too if you are not able to complete the intake through natural foods. You should always try to consume the fatty acids in the right balance to maintain a healthy life balance.
  8. Studying Twins is Science's love affair from the dawn of time simply because of the near perfect genetic and physical match. This is ideal for scientists to conduct studies for comparing changes in human responses to change in environments. NASA did a similar test with an astronaut who also happens to have a twin brother. Scott Kelly, U.S. astronaut suggested to NASA that he and his identical twin brother, Mark could be a subject of a study of long-term space flight. © NASA This gave scientists and researchers the unique opportunity to monitor two brothers with an identical gene footprint in two very different environments. One in space and one 250 miles below it. Results have finally been publishing and the findings are shocking. Scott experienced changes that his brother Mark did not. These changes went away six months after Scott returned to earth; however, none of these changes posed any health differences. The results are now out and these were the results according to the paper: © Reuters "In this paper, they showed there was no statistically significant difference in genetic modifications they could find between the twin in the space station with the one on the ground," said Gronostajski, the director of the University of New York at Buffalo's Genetics, Genomics, and Bioinformatics graduate program. What were the changes? © NASA Scientists and doctors took many measurements from the Astronaut's body at molecular levels. Such a study has never been done before with such accuracy. Kelly also sent his blood samples to Earth via return capsules. Here are the changes that Kelly's body faced after a year in space: 1. 91.3 percent of Scott's gene activity returned to normal after six months landing back on Earth. The genes never mutated rather respond to the environment. 2. Flu Vaccine has the same effect in Space. 3. Kelly's end caps on Chromosomes got longer in space but returned to normal form upon his return. 4. One category of bacteria in Scott's gut increased, while another decreased; the ratio returned to normal after the mission. We don't yet whether this was harmful or not as more research is needed. 5. Kelly aged faster in terms of physical appearance than his Twin Brother in that period.

  10. Ahmed Hossam Hussein Abdelhamid, commonly known as Mido, is not a name that would immediately ring a bell amongst football fans. But, the 6-feet-2-inch tall striker has played for Ajax, Roma, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United. And, it was with Spurs that Mido managed to establish himself as a cult hero. During a loan spell from Roma, Mido became an instant hot favourite amongst Tottenham fans as he bagged 13 goals in 36 matches. His clinical performances in crunch matches saw him securing a permanent move with Spurs in 2016. At the international level, Mido scored 20 goals in 51 appearances for Egypt before calling time on his career in 2013. View this post on Instagram ððð A post shared by Ahmed Hossam (@ahmedhossammido) on Mar 16, 2018 at 8:36pm PDT But, despite all that, the Egyptian striker gained popularity as the "overweight" footballer after he shared a shirtless picture on Instagram last year. While some compared him to the late drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, others called him a water balloon on social media. The body-shaming, then, instigated Mido to answer back in the way he knows best - like a true champion.

  11. Will the real Melania Trump please stand up? No actually, for real. Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory and this one involving the US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump is a little too weird. In short, people online are convinced that Donald Trump brought along a body-double for his wife Melania and the woman in the picture is not actually FLOTUS. Yep, instead of people tweeting about #FakeNews and Donald Trump, the new big thing is #FakeMelania. While all these wild conspiracy theories are almost always bullshit, the proof for this one is right here and it's honestly a little convincing. Both of them recently visited communities in Eastern Alabama to pay their condolences after recent tornadoes hit the area claiming the lives of 23 people. This picture of them basically restarted the entire theory which first surfaced two years ago.

Because, we all know how much affection they show in public. People are really doubting if it's the real Melania Trump and the hashtag #FakeMelania has started trending on Twitter again. I previously thought the #fakeMelania thing was bullshit but I actually don't think that's her. lol https://t.co/KQNekZy0pi — Danny//B ð (@OGBotterz) March 8, 2019 It's not acceptable at all. A body double for public appearances? How is this an acceptable practice? Seriously. There's a whole different level of bizarre with this family. #fakeMelania — WatchingWoman (@FerryPerson) March 9, 2019 People started investigating. Ok People!

  12. There are certain persistent body issues that can be both embarrassing and exasperating at the same time. Body odour, jock itch, dandruff shed to name a few. However, what most people don't realise is that these are easily solvable problems. So, here is a breakdown of all the things you can do to fix these issues without having a certain someone notice it: 1. A Case Of Bad Breath © Getty Images If you have a case of bad breath that people complain of when they lean in to talk to you then you've got to add these things to your grooming kit. Besides a brush, you need a floss, a tongue cleaner and a mouthwash and add these steps to your brushing routine. For the daily commute keep the chewing gum and a mint box handy for emergencies. Otherwise, it's always to safe to pop in a mint after lunch so any build up is tackled before a stench develops. 2. Body Odour © Getty Images Body odour is natural and something everyone has. However, a particularly strong body odour can literally drive people away from you. This means you need to take care of your body odour and make sure it does not become a trashy stench by the end of the day. So instead of deodorants, try roll-ons, they are more effective and keep you away from smelling bad. 3. Dandruff Shed © amazon The dandruff shed is not only annoying but one of the first symptoms hair fall. Dandruff is the dead skin cells falling off the scalp, which means a lack of deep moisturizing in the scalp that you need to tackle. Aside from anti-dandruff shampoo and conditioner, try a good anti-dandruff cream. 4. Nose And Ear Whiffs © amazon For the extra nose and ear whiffs that you haven't gotten off yet, you need a special trimmer designed for the ear and nose whiffs. These troubling whiffs can be annoying to look at for the other person. A nose and ear hair strand trimmer is a hassle-free and painless way to get rid of these hair whiffs. 5. Dark Eye Circles © amazon For racoon eyes and blemishes that add years to your face, you need a concealer that will conceal all these imperfections in no time. The concealer is not gendered. Stop believing that only women use it. Male beauty matters too. Considering the first impression you send out is your face before you even speak. 6. Annoying Rashes © amazon Here's a secret that will change your life. For all the annoying rashes on your body, from those annoying blisters on the feet to thigh and arm rashes that come from too much friction, gymming, and humid months can all go in two minutes if you apply a baby rash cream. A baby rash cream is made with special ingredients to get rid of any rashes or itchiness that babies get from wearing diapers, which makes these creams super effective. Try it once, trust us, it'll change your life. 7. A Jock Itch © amazon A jock itch or itchy balls is something you might face if you don't have an intimate wash at home that you use regularly. And, we're not even talking chemicals, just natural ingredients like tea tree oil and aloe vera gel that soothe the itch down there and kill any bacteria build up. 8. Stretch Marks © amazon Stretch marks are those red lightning bolt like marks that appear on your skin when you're either going through puberty or your body is transitioning by gaining or losing weight. After a bright rouge, they simmer down to white marks eventually. To get rid of them entirely, you need an essential oil primarily dedicated to getting stretch marks out of the body. A regular application gets them out eventually.
  13. The internet surprises you with new posts every day and one such post took me by surprise today wherein two legends from their respective fields posed together and mentioned about “game planning for something big”. View this post on Instagram Talking shop, game planning the next great @_aamirkhan Aamir Khan transformation! Great respect for this man's dedication to his craft. He's a once in a generation type talent...and he's definitely a student of the iron game! #impressed #aamirkhan #transformationcoming #legend #trainlikeanathlete #teamathlean #athleanx #jeffcavaliere A post shared by ATHLEAN-X™ | Jeff Cavaliere (@athleanx) on Feb 18, 2019 at 5:31pm PST We are talking about Jeff Cavaliere aka Athlean X & Aamir Khan. Jeff Cavaliere is a world famous Fitness YouTuber with over 7 Million Subscribers on YouTube and is easily the best fitness YouTuber for nearly a decade. Jeff isn't merely famous, he is extremely knowledgeable as well. He has been a Physical Therapist and Strength Coach for Base Ball Team-New York Mets and coached several top-level athletes including Tom Glavine and Pedro Martinez, and perennial all-stars Carlos Delgado, Carlos Beltran, David Wright, Jose Reyes, and Billy Wagner. He is well known for his injury rehab and brutal ab training videos. Aamir Khan has been committed to the iron game since the year 2007. His physique in the movie 'Ghajini' and his very recent body transformation for the movie 'Dangal' got worldwide attention, where he went from 30% body fat to under 10% body fat in merely six months. © YouTube In a recent post shared by Jeff Cavaliere, these two gentlemen posed together and Jeff wrote “Game planning the next great Aamir Khan transformation”. This got us extremely curious to check out for which character Aamir Khan is going under a body transformation. According to leads Aamir is working on two projects: 'Mogul' which is a biopic on T-Series' founder Gulshan Kumar and the epic, 'Mahabharata'. Gulshan Kumar had a chubby body which Aamir Khan currently is. Hence most likely Aamir Khan is training under Jeff to get leaner and muscular to play the role of Krishna in 'Mahabharata'. For this role, we speculate Aamir will be less jacked than he was in 'Dangal' and carry a leaner physique, perhaps similar to an MMA fighter. View this post on Instagram Very real advice from the great @_aamirkhan as he prepares to make another transformation. Remember, goals and aspirations without a clear path to reaching them...will likely never become reality! Full video and training coming tomorrow to my YouTube channel... #goals #aamirkhan #onestepatatime #transformation #staytuned #teamathlean #jeffcavaliere #athleanx A post shared by ATHLEAN-X™ | Jeff Cavaliere (@athleanx) on Feb 20, 2019 at 8:02pm PST This collaboration will definitely benefit Jeff Cavaliere's YouTube channel with a subscriber boost of millions. But it will also help the Indian fitness community as many Indian fitness enthusiasts will get exposure to Jeff's training videos and get to see what real fitness science is. And hopefully, leave the expectation of building 6-pack abs in 1 week or increasing height in 1 month.

  14. As last year marked the completion of a decade since the deadly attacks of 26/11, there still exists individuals who survived through this hell and are now living a normal life. One such individual is my client, RSK (name undisclosed), but is brave enough to narrate her story. A story that she now feels is just part of the past and has blown away like wind. Shot And Lying In A Pool Of Blood © RSK A then resident of California, RSK had come over to Mumbai to attend a wedding and decided to meet with her friends at a restaurant at the Oberoi Hotel at Nariman Point. Before even placing an order, RSK and her friends heard something that sounded like “firecrackers” and upon inquiring they were told by the hotel staff that it was the sound of the locals celebrating India's win during a cricket match. The next thing they heard was “duck! duck! This was followed by a shower of bullets and a hand grenade explosion. Two of her friends passed away on the spot, while one of her other friends managed to leave safely. RSK however wasn't able to leave, because she was shot with several bullets and also by shrapnel from the explosion. RSK shouted for help (in Hindi and English) for the next 18 hours lying immobile in her own blood; until a policeman heard her and carried her on a stretcher. It was this time when she realized that one of her arms was hanging loose, almost detached and that she was injured all over her body. Learning To Live Again With A Bullet Still In Her Body After being admitted to a nearby hospital on 27/11, RSK underwent multiple surgeries including bone grafting, a nerve implant and removal of about 7 bullets and shrapnel from her body. She was discharged officially from all medical treatment in February 2009. In fact, she still has a bullet in her body behind her pelvis which was too risky to be removed. After receiving rigorous physiotherapy for the first two years post her surgeries, she finally gained back most of her mobility and movement. 20 Kilos Overweight And The Trap Of Stupid Diets RSK lost a lot of lean body mass staying immobile in the hospital for 3 months and once she returned home, she put on around 20 kilos during the course of a few years. There arrived a time when her doctor suggested her to undergo a knee-surgery due to increased stress on her joints due to high bodyweight. She would lose weight, and gain it back due to an unsustainable approach towards her diet and exercise. She tried a variety of diets: the “liquid” diet suggested by a famous nutritionist, the GM diet and etc. And the result was weight loss and even more weight gain post the dieting phase due to eating out of proportion. © RSK Counting Calories And Weight Training = 22 Kilos Lost It was not until 2017 that she realized the importance of following something more sustainable and consistent. Since then, her nutritionist asked her to focus on her overall caloric intake and macro nutrients; she was also allowed to enjoy some unhealthy options. “I love junk food and I eat some everyday. But I keep the portion-size in mind”, said RSK. She, now, also makes sure to accumulate at least 150 minutes of exercise per week which includes kickboxing, weight training and suspension training. From the time she took this decision, she successfully lost 22 kilos (from 99 kilos to 77 kilos) and has kept it off. Today, she not only feels lighter but also finds it easy to perform activities of daily living due to regular exercise. © RSK As RSK's fitness specialist, I push her just enough without going overboard. Due to limited range of motion in both her arms, I make sure that she trains through the available range. Her workouts include squats, pushups, deadlifts, lunges, burpees, jumping jacks and almost all movements one can think of. The suspension trainer is assistive during movements that require her to deload some weight for pain-free movement. She calls exercising “the necessary evil” but she makes sure to take out the time to engage in it 5 times a week. RSK is one of my special clients because she is one of the very few individuals I know who has seen death so closely. “I'm not scared to die anymore. But I value life more than ever”, said RSK when I asked her about her almost-fatal encounter. Apart from her will power, RSK gives credit to her supportive family and friends for getting her back to normalcy.
  15. Paul Wight, more commonly known as Big Show, has been in the business of bursting his opponents' chests with open-arm slaps and knocking them out with a direct punch to the face with a fist as big as a freaking frying pan for a little over 24 years. Making his not-so-impressive debut with the World Wrestling Association on 24th December 1994 - a match he lost by countout - Big Show made it to the big stage a year later with the World Championship Wrestling. Getting into some of the greatest duels with the biggest names of the wrestling world like Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage, Big Show soon became one of the top in-ring performers in the world. According to his fellow wrestlers, an extremely 'safe' wrestler to perform against, the 7-feet-tall Show had constant health issues because of his massive size and heavy weight resulting in major medical problems such as having an irregular heartbeat, chewed out joints and constant agony for years. Shifting between 'fat' and 'less-fat' body types, over the years, Big Show often asked the typically jacked colleagues like Triple H and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson about their diet plans but could never get a definite response out of them. “When you take the time and do the research (about nutrition) it's more about what suits you, not what suits everybody,” Show spoke out on Conan O'Brien's chat show. One fine day, in what was a comparatively short conversation between Big Show and John Cena, Show talked about how weird it would be for the giant to have abs and Cena said: “Yeah. A giant with abs. That wouldn't be marketable at all,” as he walked away. Cena's words brought a reality check for the wrestler. He realised that coming up with a complete transformation would not only bring him better health, it could also bring along a new in-ring life for the athlete who was desperately searching for his lost mojo. “You don't make the transformation I've made without a serious commitment to changing 40 years of improper diet and improper training,” he told WWE.com. “I wanted to make a change, and I was given the time and opportunity to make a change, so I took advantage of it.” While in the initial days of Show's new determination to transform himself, his body didn't respond to his efforts uniformly, but as the kilos dropped, his muscular physique soon began to come out, which further motivated the big man to do better. The result? Hey @Shaq...glad your training!! Because so am I! #GiantAbs #WrestleMania pic.twitter.com/1WepdkHqWj — “The Big Show” Paul Wight (@WWETheBigShow) January 15, 2017 Show's heaviest was 244 kg. He brought it down to 210 kg and finally Show's current weight is a phenomenal 170 kg! What's really worth marvelling at is the fact that Show not only lost so much weight but also kept his muscles. And guess what, a giant with the giant abs and giant biceps looks a lot more terrifying (a lot more sellable) as compared to a blob moving around the ring with a broken hip in his black tiny spandex! We hope to see Paul 'Big Show' Wight back on the WWE roster soon. Until then, let's leave the big guy to himself with a small 'Happy birthday' note.

  17. The worst nightmares have come to reality for Horacio Sala, the father of the 28-year-old footballer, Emiliano Sala after the Cardiff City striker's body was finally identified by the Dorset police. Shortly after the body was brought to the Portland Port, HM Coroner for Dorset declared to the public that it was recovered from amidst the plane's wreckage and was in fact that of Emiliano Sala, whose jet mysteriously vanished from the air traffic control's radar on 22nd January 2019. In what can only be considered as the final moments of Sala, the footballer got in touch with his father with a WhatsApp voicemail in which he sounded nervous and scared for his life. "If in an hour and a half you have no news from me, I don't know if they are going to send someone to look for me because they cannot find me. But you know… Dad, I am so scared," he had said. Horacio Sala had opened up to the press a couple of days after the voicemail came out when he said: “He (Emiliano) was so happy that he was going there (Cardiff), to an even bigger club… He was doing too well, he was playing so well, and then this news… There are no words to describe the feeling.” Sala was a talented young star was had just signed a major deal with an English Premier League team, Cardiff City FC and was supposed to join his new team for a practice session a day after his unfortunate disappearance took place. He was loved by fans from both his previous team, Nantes, a French Ligue 1 team and Cardiff, equally, who came out in huge numbers to show their condolences with candles, jerseys and big colourful banners. In one of the most heartbreaking moments ever since, Emiliano's sister Romina Sala shared a picture on Facebook of his dog, Nala calmly waiting by the door, for the footballer to come back home. Fans from all over the world came together to mourn over the untimely demise of the Argentinian: Emiliano Sala's last ever goal ð¼ðð¾ #RIPSala pic.twitter.com/XIL2wkprzy — SAMUEL (@SamOgun_) February 7, 2019 This very emotional video tribute to Emiliano Sala will hit you hard.

  18. Actress Julia Roberts once said "True love doesn't come to you, it has to be inside you." Looks like this Japanese dude took some serious 'inspiration' from her words and literally ate his girlfriend, who was actually a cockroach from Africa. Yuta Shinohara, a 25-year-old entomophagist, was in a serious relationship for almost a year with Lisa, his 'beloved' cockroach girlfriend he bought from Africa. In fact, he was so deeply and madly in love with her that he even fantasised having *** with it. Shinohara agreed that although the relationship was platonic, he often imagined having *** with it in a fantasy world where either he was miniaturised or she was super-sized. And you thought your imagination was weird! YouTube/ Asian Boss However, his romantic love story came to a sad end and Shinohara was left devastated when Lisa died. "The day she passed away was difficult, but I knew it had to come since she was a cockroach with a short lifespan,” he said. YouTube/ Asian Boss I don't know if you noticed or not that I mentioned Shinohara is an entomophagist, which means he is someone who practices eating bugs and insects as food. He did the same with his 'true love' Lisa. He ate the cockroach after she died, so that she can live in his heart and body forever. Shinohara said, "I did it with reverence. So now Lisa lives in my heart and continues living as part of my body." How romantic, isn't it? According to Shinohara, Lisa was hotter than any human girl in the world and that they were "100% serious" about each other. In other news, Shinohara is famous for popularising insect cuisine in the country. He often hosts events where he makes and serves dishes likes noodles, cocktails and desserts made from bugs and worms. His 'ramen made with crickets' is supposedly a delicacy loved by people. Even 'creepy' is an understatement for Shinohara's love story, which ended or probably became 'immortal' when he ate her just so she can continue to live in his body. All those people who say "True love knows no boundaries", will probably take back their words now, after meeting Shinohara.
  19. Keeping that extra coat of hair on your body is totally a personal choice. You can choose to keep all that hair right there if that's your call or remove it, if that helps you sleep at night better. Body hair is an extension of you and you really shouldn't be hating it or be insecure because of it. In fact, it's an extension of you that you can modify and mould in whichever way you like. However, it's important to know how to deal with it. There are specific ways to deal with body hair. If you don't follow these, then definitely the growth might present to you as a problem. If you're in the category of people who want to permanently get rid of body hair, and you don't want to deal with the regular bi-monthly hassle of shaving, you could consider these strong options: 1. IPL: Intense Pulsed Light © Instagram In this method, hair is removed for the long term with broad spectrum pulse of light, which basically means that it targets the melanin in the hair in contrast to the melanin in the skin. Once used, it gets rid of unwanted body hair for the long term. For application, simply treat the desired area of the body every two weeks for an eight week period for effective results. However, it's important that you talk to a professional first before you get into this course of treatment. 2. Electrolysis © artofmanilness In electrolysis, the professionals use a slim needle to poke each hair shaft separately, the technique delivers tiny shocks of electricity to the hair follicle, killing the cells that help hair grow. It's relatively expensive and time-consuming. It'll take more sessions to get all the growth out. 3. Laser Treatment © cosmoderma Laser treatment involves a beam that heats up the follicle and puts it in a dormant stage preventing any growth. The results depend on your skin type: the level of pigmentation and the amount of melanin in your hair. Laser treatment offers a permanent reduction, if done right you don't have to engage in regular treatments again.
  20. I began my fitness journey from the very start of January 2017, when I decided to finally be stubborn and strong-willed about my New Year resolution of becoming a fitter version of myself. Set A Goal, Be It Whatever Actually, truth be told, it was not initially about fitness but it was more about trying to look better and improve my appearance and the goals were in all honesty, quite cosmetically-inclined. I had always wanted to have a 6-pack as a kid and the desire to get it was on my bucket list. I wondered if an ordinary person like me could ever achieve the same. So, that was my motivation, to at least try and achieve a physique that Instagram fitness models have. I did not have any major health issues as such, but I would admit that I did fall prey to body image issues about the way I would look. Most people are not entirely proud of the way they look and given a chance would always want to get rid of their pot-bellies, they would like to get rid of their double-chin, and their paunch, and the list is endless and I sadly too was one of these people. Enough Of Lethargy There was always this sense of weakness that existed; the unavoidable consequence of the inactive life that I led. I could barely run a flight of stairs without gasping for air uncontrollably and I barely had the endurance and willingness to even walk short distances. Work, Stress And Poor Eating Even while working as an auditor, an occupation which involved a lot of non-stop travelling, I would think it would be fair to describe my lifestyle as sedentary, as almost 15 hours of my day was spent sitting on a chair. My poor eating habits were quite disorderly as well. I would binge on anything I would see. This food would basically comprise of junk, ranging from the unhealthiest road-side noodles to oily deep-fried samosas and puris with aloo sabji and of course, the entire index of junk food. Steering Things Around So I decided to follow my brother, who is a highly sought-after fitness coach in Kolkata. What set him apart from most trainers in our area was how he focused on the scientific aspect of entire process instead of just simply following a rigid rule of thumb approach. His methodology was remarkably different. It was incredibly important for me to focus on nutrition and that's exactly what he made me do. He made it very clear that no matter what I do inside the gym wouldn't matter if my eating habits weren't fixed. Here is where I learned the concept of energy balance and ensured that there was no extreme method that was resorted to in order to reach my goals. The Basics Of Nutrition To lose weight, one has to put their bodies in a prolonged calorie deficit; it is where you decide to willingly put your body in a state where it expends more energy (as performing any kind of activity would involve) than its energy intake (food). So before talking about my training, it is to be made unreservedly clear that 90% of my focus and mental energy was invested in proper dieting. Workouts My workouts would take no longer than an hour to complete if done properly. It was a simple workout chart that allowed me to train two body parts a day for 6 days a week consistently, followed by a 10-minute cardio session after the weight training routine. Again, I would like to add, there was no strict diet chart that I was told to follow. I was simply asked to use an online calculator that allowed you to estimate what my daily calorie intake would be to maintain my weight and then decide to eat foods that would ensure I end up in a calorie deficit. Stop Demonizing Foods No food is an absolute no-no in my scientifically informed opinion. It is very irrational to demonize a certain food and say that this is healthy and that is not. It is okay to have whatever you want as long as you maintain a calorie deficit. Keep This In Mind A lot of people will tell you how it is impossible to achieve the physique that you want, but remember, I have faced that as well and as overly clichéd as this may end up sounding, you are capable of much more than you can imagine. You can have the dream physique of your life and you are the only one who can get you there.
  21. When life gets crazy and there are multiple things that you are stressing about, more than often, the first thing to go haywire is sleep. We don't get enough rest and are always somehow sleep-deprived! If you eat healthy and exercise regularly but still don't manage to squeeze in at least seven hours of sleep every night, you may undermine all your other efforts. You can still work towards your goal of a sound sleep with a fool-proof schedule or a purpose-built innovation designed to be the most effective sleep-inducer like the Bose Sleepbuds! This new product is the perfect thing to make sure that on-the-go millennials like us catch up on our sleep to avoid facing the perils of not getting enough sleep. But before talking more on the wonder product, here's a reality check of all the things that happen to your body when you don't sleep enough or well: 1. You Get Sick Unsplash Have you ever found yourself falling sick after having a very hectic schedule all week? That's your immune system getting its revenge. Losing sleep can impair your body's ability to fight off illness. This makes it easier to get sick. And there's even a reciprocal relationship between sleep and your immune system. You are more likely to lose additional sleep if your body is fighting off a bug and haven't had enough sleep. 2. You Gain Weight Unsplash If you've not been sleeping well, it can lead to you packing on a couple of kgs. A study examined the relationship between sleep and weight in 21,469 adults over the age of 20. It was found that people who slept less than 5 hours each night over the course of the three-year study were more likely to gain weight and eventually become obese. Those who slept between 7 and 8 hours fared better on the scale. 3. You're More Accident Prone Unsplash If you get 6 or fewer hours of sleep every night, you're three times more likely to be involved in a car accident, according to the National Sleep Foundation. The people most vulnerable are shift workers, commercial drivers, business travellers, and anyone else working long or odd hours. Think twice before getting behind the wheel if you're not sleeping enough. 4. Your Skin Suffers Unsplash Your looks suffer too! One research studied the relationship between sleep habits and the condition of the subjects' skin. The results revealed that those with too little sleep had more fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin colour, and marked looseness of the skin. The poor sleepers were also more dissatisfied with their appearance than their well-rested counterparts. 5. Your Thinking Capabilities Deteriorate Unsplash Ever noticed how to tend to not think clearly or forget things if you miss even one night of sleep. In a study published by Experimental Brain Research, a group of 18 men was given a task to complete. The first task was completed following a full night's sleep. The next task was completed after skipping a night of sleep. Brain functions including memory, decision-making, reasoning, and problem-solving worsened, along with reaction time and alertness. We've all been there. Those nights when you just can't sleep because annoying sounds like snoring, traffic, and loud neighbours are keeping you awake. If you think you have not been sleeping well, don't worry! There is a new solution: a purpose-built innovation designed to be the most effective and comfortable in-ear noise masking solution on the market- the Bose Sleepbuds! Designed for comfort, these tiny, truly wireless sleepbuds deliver uniquely engineered sounds that mask unwanted noise and lull you to sleep. So you can wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day. They look like tiny headphones, but Bose noise-masking sleepbuds are uniquely designed for sleep. They don't stream music or have acoustic noise cancellation. Instead, they use pre-loaded, soothing masking sounds to cover up unwanted nighttime noises so you can get to sleep and stay asleep. If you've not been sleeping well, buy yourself a pair of sleepbuds here. And if you're a loud snorer, do your partner a favour and gift them a good night's sleep with this blessing!
  22. In 'MXP Body Love', we ask people with amazing bodies the key questions about how to achieve, maintain, and basically take care of our bodies in the best way possible, while seeking their guidance on the same. While we want to know hacks on seemingly superficial topics such as how to look good without clothes, we also want to delve deep and discuss bigger issues such as body positivity, acceptance, how to deal with insecurities, and also how to move past difficulties and strive to reach the best version of oneself. Our 'Body Love' expert here is actor Dheeraj Dhoopar. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 1. One food item you should never, ever eat? I feel one must never eat anything made out of refined flour (Maida). It has no nutritional value at all and causes a lot of problems later on in life. 2. The one body part you should never ignore when it comes to workout? The one body part that is ignored the most but must never be ignored is legs. Working out legs has the most benefits, amongst all the body parts. It helps develop cardio vascular strength, helps burn fat faster and also helps in increasing metabolic rate. 3. Natural fuzz vs. waxed/trimmed body hair? I feel trimming body hair is the most convenient, and hence is the best. It saves a lot of time, and also does not affect the skin adversely. If someone naturally has less body hair, then nothing like that. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 4. Grooming essentials - what are the products you can't do without? I can't do without my perfume, and I definitely cannot do without my hair products. I have a lot of them and I keep buying new stuff to experiment with. Whenever I travel out of country I make it to point to get new products, or products that are not easily available. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 5. Shave down there or trim it? I feel trimming is better any day. Saves time and effort. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 6. Best lighting for clicking nudes (or just for the boudoir)? I think natural light during monsoon season is the best when it some to shooting nudes. That light is uniform and one can play with it to any extent as it's not too harsh. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 7. Did you ever face any insecurity about your own body? What did you do to deal with it? I have never faced any insecurity with my body. I know my body well and I know what suits my body. One thing I know is that I have a tendency to put on weight, and so I make it a point to only eat and drink what my body can handle. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 8. What is the toughest challenge according to you, when it comes to obtaining and maintaining a body in its peak shape? I feel the toughest challenge is to keep at it forever. One may attain a good physique but maintaining it forever it the toughest thing to do. A lot of mental toughness and will power is required to continue doing that. 9. Not everyone is content with the way their body looks. How do you suggest one should deal with it? One most know their body to the core. Once you understand your body, you will be comfortable with whoever you are. I don't think anyone who meets you will judge you on your body, because there are a lot of other things you need to work on before you focus on that. © Dheeraj Dhoopar 10. The lines are constantly thinning, when it comes to what is beautiful and what is not. Body positivity is slowly catching up, and the 'accepted standards' of beauty and fitness are getting questioned. What are your views about it? I completely support it, as there can't be any set parameters to judge anyone physically, especially since we live in a society. I feel getting comfortable with our own body by accepting the flaws makes us open to various other forms of body types around us, which is essential for our own mental well-being.
  23. The fitness industry is growing with every passing day and everyone wants to get a beach-ready six-pack bod in the shortest period of time. It's crazy how folks dump their money into whatever or whoever that promises shortcuts to get a six pack these days. Let's cut the BS and get to the point. Getting a beach-ready body is not easy. If it were, you'd find men flaunting their six-pack on the beach all the time and that's certainly not the case. I'm going to tell you the 5 most important things you actually need to do to get a beach body. 1. Mindset Like I mentioned, getting a six-pack is not easy. To achieve it, you must plan your things before your actions. Be realistic with your goals and stick to it. The best way would be to focus on short-term goals which lead to your end goal. For example, your goal is to get lean by summer then your short-term goal should be to lose 2 to 4 pounds by a month. © YouTube 2. Behaviour And Lifestyle If you want to get fit you must have a proper systematic routine per day. Your desire, dedication and discipline should be in a triangle. Adding to that you must give yourself some room to socialize with your friends and family. You don't have to restrict yourself all the time from social events or outings. 3. Nutrition Fat loss pills, fat burners or cutting your carbs is not the answer. The secret sauce to get fit comes from your dietary calorie intake. Food should be your number one priority. Your body needs the energy to move around or conduct any physical work and that energy comes from food. Don't starve yourself. Muscles are built when you feed them with a proper combination of necessary nutrients i.e. protein, carbs and fats. Eat in a calorie deficit and do it consistently. 4. Training If you want to look good with muscles and low body fat, training is your best friend when it comes to building muscle and preserving it. Without resistance training, your body won't be able to hold the muscle you already have. Get yourself into a gym, train smartly and focus on progression. Make it a daily habit. © Pixabay 5. Sleep Every human being's best recovery system is sound sleep. It is one of the most forgotten muscle builders. You train, you fuel your body with food, you grow when you sleep and recover from your training stimulus. Good sleep can increase your overall performance. Get at least 7 to 8 hours of undisturbed sleep every night. To conclude, set some realistic goals, upgrade your lifestyle to a healthy one, follow your diet and gym regime religiously and sleep well. Because this will help you not just get a beach body but also stay that way for long. Author bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform.

  24. Did you know that your body slows down your kidney while you sleep? Also, if you stop sleeping, you will never have any permanent memory! Next time when you find your girlfriend looking adorable while sleeping, remember that she is registering everything you did during the daytime to use it against you in future. Here below are 10 pretty weird AF things that are happening to our body while we are in deep sleep: 1. Paralyses © Wikipedia Everytime you sleep, your body repeats a sleep cycle various times. One of the stages of this cycle is REM, i.e. Rapid Eye Movement. If someone wakes you up while you are in REM stage, you are most likely to remember your dream. While your brain is registering temporary memory into permanent slots, it paralyses your body so that your muscles will not move, interpreting these signals as commands. This is a totally different phenomenon from sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis is not being able to move even though you are conscious. Few people consider it a paranormal activity as they feel like someone is sitting on their chest. Visit your physician if you experience something similar; it could be a symptom of narcolepsy. 2. Jerking Awake © Pixabay Hypnic jerks or hypnagogic jerks make you feel like you have been jolted into consciousness. A sensation that you are falling might also be a cause for the discontinuation of your sleep. The limited studies done on the matter could not agree on a specific reason of occurrence. 3. Eye Movement If you have noticed someone's eyeball move while sleeping, don't be alarmed. Each sleep cycle lasts for around 90 minutes and REM is the final stage. During the REM stage, your pupils will quickly from left to right. 4. Producing Human Growth Hormone © Pinterest Beauty sleep isn't an utter myth. While sleeping, the blood glucose level of your body is comparatively lower. This lower glucose level is believed to trigger an essential hormone called growth hormone, also known as HGH. This hormone helps in regenerating the muscles, bone and other tissues. 5. Narrowing Of Throat © Flickr What's worse than a snoring partner? While you struggle to search for a justifiable answer to that question, let us tell you why your partner snores. Multiple situations can trigger snoring, including tonsillitis, stuffy nose, and narrow throat. The fact that your breathing pattern changes while sleeping might not surprise you, but did you know that your throat naturally narrows as your muscles are relaxing? In extreme conditions (called sleep apnea) your throat can completely close. 6. Grinding Teeth © Pinterest Bruxism is a scientific term to describe conscious teeth clenching or grinding. Most people suffer from this condition; while in some cases it may be insignificant, others end up with cracked teeth and swollen jaw muscles. This is exactly why dentists recommend some people to use mouth guards while sleeping. 7. Slowing Down Of Kidneys © Pixabay While other body organs seem to follow the hare, your kidneys consider the tortoise its idol. The kidneys' role in your body is to filter toxins out of your bloodstream and add the waste to urine. This mechanism is slowed down multiple folds to reduce the amount of urine production while you are asleep. 8. Making Up Stories © Pixabay Sometimes, there are few dreams which seem so vivid that you can't separate them from reality. Even after years of research, scientists fail to explain the stories and characters we dream about. There is no proper scientific explanation as to why certain dreams feel so real. 9. Creating An Explosion © Pinterest Exploding head syndrome is a rare condition experienced by few. These people hear a loud crash in their dreams. Most of these people explain that the voice sounds like a gunshot and is generally experienced while they are drifting off to sleep. Even though it doesn't cause any pain, it is definitely frightening for the sufferer. These people are usually adults over 50 years of age. 10. Turning Into A Chatterbox © Flickr Mumbling while dreaming is a rather common condition, in fact, it happens to about 5 per cent of the world's population. But did you know that men are more susceptible to it than women? It does not have any severe symptoms and scientists are yet to give an explanation over it. However, it is believed to be linked to another sleep issue called sleep apnea. In sleep apnea, breathing repeatedly stops and starts multiple times during the entire sleep cycle.

I grew up eating fried food, and the college I went to had the best Pav-Vada. I, however, have given it up completely, and haven't indulged in it since the past two years or so. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 2. The one body part you should never ignore when it comes to workout? Legs. Unfortunately, in our country, it's always somehow about 'looking fit' than actually being fit. It's always about looking muscular and filling up the T-shirts. So people don't really work on their legs - which is absolutely unhealthy, not to mention unaesthetic. Apart from legs, glutes are also important when it comes to overall fitness, not only to look hot in a pair of jeans, but to maintain a healthy core as well. Also, we should also train the smaller muscles in our body regularly, that often gets ignored, thereby causing muscular imbalances and injuries. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 3. Natural fuzz vs. waxed/trimmed body hair? I'm absolutely comfortable with the natural fuzz, but I'm open to trimming or waxing if a role demands it. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 4. Grooming essentials - what are the products you can't do without? A good face wash, a good perfume (I have a huge collection of perfumes), and a nail-cutter. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 5. Shaving Vs. trimming? Shaving seems to be a lot of work. Trimming is far easier. Anyway I like my stubble, so trimming it is. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 6. Best lighting for clicking shirtless pictures? Till this point, honestly, I never thought about it. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 7. Did you ever face any insecurity about your own body? What did you do to deal with it? I did, of course. Even though the popular belief runs that only overweight people get body shamed, it's not true. I was skinny as a kid, was always conscious of it. I tried to deal with it by taking up physically demanding stuff, in order to prove myself in front of other kids. I discovered the magic of exercising and workouts when I was about 16, and have never looked back since. I started doing martial arts, push-ups, pull-ups, and also started going to the gym. Even though I did it mainly to just look good at that point in time, it proved to be life-changing. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 8. What is the toughest challenge according to you, when it comes to obtaining and maintaining a body in its peak shape? I have a terrible sweet tooth. I can finish off mithhai boxes or bars of chocolates in minutes. Even though I control it well now-a-days, it's still challenging for me. Also, I'm an overall foodie who comes from a family where everything is cooked in desi ghee and food is rich and delicious overall. Ghee is good for you, btw, provided you limit the consumption in case you're trying to build an aesthetically appealing physique. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 9. Not everyone is content with the way their body looks. How do you suggest one should deal with it? I think the only way to deal with that is to look at it with a different approach. One should of course try to look good, but that should never be the aim with which they should plan their workouts. The goal should be to always be stronger than what you were yesterday. That way, you remain consistent, and automatically gain a better physique. I have seen really strong looking, muscular people who can't even touch their toes. What's the point of such shallow satisfaction in terms of how your body looks if it's not strong and flexible enough? Also, you should have fun while working out. Remember how we used to do somersaults and cartwheels effortlessly as children, and can't seem to do it any more when we are adults? Perhaps that's just because we forget to have fun once we grow up. © Instagram/kunalkkapoor 10. The lines are constantly thinning, when it comes to what is beautiful and what is not. Body positivity is slowly catching up, and the 'accepted standards' of beauty and fitness are getting questioned. What are your views about it? One should stop following trends, because they are just that - trends, and they will keep changing. What a body should look like will keep changing, and you can't keep up with that. What one needs to look at is their overall well-being. By that, I don't mean only physical well-being, but their mental and emotional well-being as well, and there can be multiple ways to achieve that. For example, I do an hour of meditation every morning, and that seems to help me out a lot in terms of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So all one needs to focus on is what they feel about their own physique, and their own health, rather than focusing on what the world thinks about it.
