How to identify the REAL SUPPLEMENT

 

 

 

On the contrary to what i believe , many people still feel that supplements are a must when you are aiming for those rock solid muscles .

But with the increase in demand for supplements and thousands of Rupees being spend on them ,you should know how to separate the fake and authentic .Not only to ensure that your money is not going waste , but also to prevent any Health Hazard .

How much of protein do I actually need –

  • If you don’t exercise-

        ->    0.8  X  Your weight (in kgs)=Protein needed(in grams)

 

  • If you exercise-

       ->       2 X  Your weight (in kgs)=Protein needed (in grams)

PS- Atleast drink 2-3 L of water , for proper functioning of kidneys.

 

Protein Test –

These are the 4 test to separate the fake from authentic :-

1.QR/BARCODE-

The QR/barcode that is provided should guide you to the correct URL of the website that provides the product information.

2.Water test-

This is the most reliable test.What you have to do is take a scope of your protein and add it to some water at normal temperature . Then shake it for 30 seconds if their are lumps , then your protein is fake  .

3.Seal –

If the product is authentic it would be properly attached  with the uniform edges also there will be brand name on the seal. Another thing is that there will be a seal on the inner side of the lid .

4.Price test & Expiry date –

Never go for a supplement just because its cheap , you wont find any good supplement less than like 3500 RS(per kg) , so do a good survey and try  buying directly from the company rather than a dealer .Check for MRP tag if it is proper or not.Also ensure that the supplement is well within the expiry period .

Weight lose without exercise -Ketodiet

Ketogenic diet is taking over the world .While some are hailing about its benefits others don’t feel quite into it.So here is a quick look as to what ketogenic diet is –

what-is-this-keto-diet-thats-taking-the-fat-loss-industry-by-a-storm-652x400-1-1469188266

HOW IT WORKS- 

High amount of dietary fat and low amount of dietary carbohydrates are the key features of the ketogenic diet.

We create a carbohydrate deficiency  in our body by reducing the intake , so our body urges the liver to produce ketones which act as secondary fuel for body .

These ketones are produced using the fats  and thus the fat in our body burns.

 

 

KEYPOINTS-

  1. Body might take sometime to adapt to this new form of metabolism.Also it will switch to ketosis only when the carb quantity is below 20-40gm per day.
  2. While following keto, one has to keep his/her protein consumption in check. Keep it not more than 0.8 gm per pound of body weight. 
  3. Optimal diet for losing body fat , but not for gaining muscles.

 

Dietary recommendations –

Foods high in dietary fat like butter, ghee, coconut oil, etc are your best bets. Lean protein sources like chicken, eggs and fish are a must. Green veggies like spinach and broccoli are the key food items of the keto plan as well. In case of ova-lacto vegetarians, they can consume eggs or paneer instead of chicken and fish. But always remember to keep the consumption within the limits of your ‘macros’. If you go overboard with your macros, you’ll snap out of ketosis and you wouldn’t even know.

6 Ayurvedic tips for skinny guys 

I was just browsing through and I saw an article related to how ayurveda  helps skinny people gain weight. Immediately I could see all those memories flash before me when my friend would  tell me that  why he was skinny due to his SUPERHUMAN METABOLISM or he would share how he was overpowered by a new chap in the gym. But  I knew the most painful thing for him was his inability to show his muscles power.

I’m sure many could relate to it , and enough of your excuses that you are building power and not size . Sure, you’ve tried your protein shakes, your three huge meals; plus two supplementary meals a day. But, maybe you’re doing it wrong and, just maybe, you need to look at things from a fresh perspective—one you never knew you could try, until now.

 

CAUSE  

According to ayurveda  being skinny is caused due to over activity of basically Vata dosha, or wind/space element, and dhaatu agni or tissue metabolism – especially in the muscle/connective tissue layer.

AIM

  1. Balance the Vata in the muscle/connective tissue
  2. Build up the Kapha (water/earth elements) dosha as your muscle comprises 70% water.

1-DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

IMG_20150815_015840

Drink one glass of water each hour that you are awake , you can drink more .But water is very essential for building your muscles.Avoid caffeine .

2-Eat heavier food

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Approximately 70% of the food should be protein. Heavier foods like meats or wheat are generally more grounding. A non-vegetarian diet is preferable if at all possible. Vegetarians should have plenty of milk, yoghurt, cheese and other sources of vegetarian protein—dal, soy, etc.

3-Lubricating food

Have a lot of nuts,curd and try eating food in coconut oil or desi ghee(home made ghee).

4-Eating veggies 

PhotoGrid_1440913965628

Eat veggies as whole , eat large chunks  rather than finely chopped.

5-Add variety and flavor 

strawberry

Eating foods with sweet, salty and sour tastes increase the earth, water and some of the fire element in your body.

6-Set a pattern

IMG_20150815_015921

The key thing here is to allow plenty of time in between meals for digestion. Your breakfast should be a small meal, consumed between 6 to 8 am. Your lunch is the main meal of the day and should be between 12 to 2pm. Your dinner is the next small meal that should be had between 5pm and anytime before it turns dark. Supplement these with two snack breaks—a mid-morning snack between 8 to 10pm, consisting of nuts and heavier fruits, like bananas, avocado, mango, papaya etc, protein shakes with nuts, milk and fruits; and an easily digestible afternoon snack between 2 to 4pm comprising nuts and fruits; also things like oatmeal cookies, flax cookies, dal kebabs, poha cutlets, cheese, etc.

Kai Greene Banned From the 2015 Mr. Olympia

Happy-Birthday-Kai-Greene-2014

Breaking news. Kai “the Predator” Greene  will not be allowed to compete in the 2015 Mr. Olympia competition. In a video released last night on Youtube, the top contender for Phil Heath’s crown made the announcement that he was officially banned from competition.

Speculation abounds as to the circumstances behind this shocking story. One inside source claims that Kai Greene’s banning stems from his intention to release his new Dynamik supplement line at the Olympia Expo.

This source stated that Kai Greene asked for a free 20×20 Expo booth and was denied. When he was asked to pay for the booth, a standoff occurred and things escalted. The statements from this source have yet to be verified.

Update 10:44am EST: An updated report has come out stating that Kai Greene did in fact make an attempt to pay for a booth and had never asked for free space.  This source is claiming that Kai Greene’s request was denied.

Here is Kai Greene’s official statement, taken from a video he released last evening:

“I’ve got a chance to see a lot of emails and messages and things, talking about that, asking me about that. I just… This is what it looks like when a man is trying to be responsible.

Let me just say that behind the scenes there is just so much more things that are going on than I’m at liberty to share with you. There is a lot more that’s happening, and that is still in the process of happening that I cannot say.

It is a test of my resolve and my sense of personal responsibility to exist here in this moment, in this position, faced with this reality of what will be my inability to participate in the Olympia 2015.

Let me just say that I’ve invested more than 20 years of my life in the belief, the idea, of being able to come to the Olympia and to do my absolute best. Despite whatever the opposition, whatever’s said, whatever the beliefs are on stage, off stage, whatever the oppositionary forces have been.

My resolve has been to respond as a champion and just aim to represent the better thought of what that means to me.

You don’t get this far, you don’t get to this point and just stop. It doesn’t happen like that.

I am not a victim. They are not going  to break me. I don’t want to speak negatively to anybody, I don’t want negatively about anything else. Let me just say there’s more going on than I’m able to say.”
