Must Avoid:

  • Bar-be-cue charred meat, poultry and fish

Bar-be-cued animal protein cooked over raw fire and at higher temperatures produces certain chemicals in the food that could be detrimental to human health and can even cause cancers if taken regularly. Having them regularly is in no way doing good for your health.

  • Deep fried dough and other fried stuffs

Battered and fried foods are amongst the worst sources of food filled with unhealthy trans fats. The same is with unhealthy fried dough products. These might taste good, but have unhealthy cholesterols and increases body inflammation.

  • Hot Dogs and Meat Burgers

Again it’s the processed and salty option to be blamed. Salami and ham are another bad options that should be strictly avoided.

  • Ice cones

These might help cool down for the moment, but are nothing apart from syrups made up of high fructose corn syrups and sweetened with sugar. Moreover, you never know the quality of water been used to make the ice.

  • Corn Cobs

These are not only bad for your gums, but are also high on carbs and calories. These have no vitamins, irons or other vital minerals and nutrients.

  • Watermelon with seeds

Watermelon is must to have food in summer, but not with its seeds. There is nothing to worry as the seeds of watermelon are not toxic or dangerous, but still it can cause discomfort or bloating.

My Yoga story on International Yoga Day

I always thought Yoga is another fancy word in the world of fitness which made me quite skeptical if Yoga will be of any advantage to me but since it was being promoted on a regular basis, it increased my curiosity to atleast try one session of Yoga. I am glad I did that since I felt refreshed.

Over the years, Yoga has helped my body in gaining flexibility, building strength, being stress-free, energetic and remain fit. Thereafter, I also tried Aerial Yoga which demanded greater control over body. It increases full-body flexibility and strength. The hammock itself allows you to go deeper into the stretches and poses, further enhancing full-body flexibility #AerialYoga. This might look easy but was very difficult.

Realizing all the benefits, I encouraged my Mom also to start practicing Yoga. This International Yoga Day, I would like every individual to attend Yoga sessions and practice the same.
