Dental hygiene

Just wanted to show off my glowing teeth. They do not lool like pearls, actually i am not sure on that front. May be those are oddly shaped pearl , so they are rare and expensive(atleast to me)

Before I started using crest tooth whitening toothpaste and mouth wash my pearla aka teeth looked yellow. I am not fomd of that color so I changed my tooth paste and now my pearls are white.

I brush twice daily. Once wirh colgate and once with crest and I am happy with result.

One more tip, dry mouth can take the shine away, so use the mouthwash. You can get all of these on amazon.

Keep smiling , keep shining.

Chader Pahar - Review

I thought of writing a review the movie Chander Pahar or Chader Pahad whatever you want to call it. Honestly I have a problem with them calling piece of moving "crap frames" with this name. I do not recall how old I was when my Aunt gifted me the actual book, Chander Pahar - author was Bibhutibhusan. It was awesome, it took my imaginations to heights of Kilimanjaro.

I know the fact that the when a film director takes his plot from a book, he has to modify the actual story line to  make the movie more interesting, commercially successful and what not. Anyway, if you watched the movie Alexander that came out in 2004 ( Angelina Jolie was there, if I still remember) , the person who played the main role was growing muscle as the movie progressed, it depicted well, that how the person gained experience in in battle, grew stronger with time and success in battle field.

But in this Bengali movie, bong favorite Dev or Deb whatever he is called, even after not eating for so many days did not shred a single pound, amazing huh? This movie made him look like a superman outrunning African lion and fighting animated monster. The animation was also one of worst, even in 1991 Spielberg made Jurassic park the dinosaurs were very much real but this bunip did not even come close to what was described in actual book nor it looked like a good animation, not sure if the budget made it worse or the guy who designed it.

Still, in my opinion they should have named the movie "Bunip - the animated monster" , that would have the justified the movie starring the super wait for it - crap star Deb, but as long as he has a cute smile and bunch of hobos in his fan base he doesn't need to worry about anything else #earndebearn

Working Out regularly - still no change in weight?

Are you going to gym 4 times a week and working out like crazy to see that weight go down? This is the most frustrating moment in gym or bathroom or wherever your weighing scale is. They say the moment you think to give up is the moment before miracles happen. You need 21 days to get into a habit and to get rid of a habit 7 days are enough.

So, you just need 21 days to get into habit of going to gym and working out for at least 45 minutes to 1 hour. And do not eat those junks for 7 days and you will lose the habit. Well, if you think you can't do without the burger, try this, lose the fries and the cheese slice, and I would recommend to lose the soda too and replace it with water or lemonade.

I have been working out for past 11 - 12 years, and I have gained and lost weight multiple times. I have seen people coming and leaving gym multiple times. There is one myth which figuratively pinches me, "if you are working out, you can eat anything" - absolutely wrong. Have you ever been to temple or church in dead drunk state ? I mean to meditate or to pray? Same way, eating trash and working out cannot be associated for 2 main reasons -

1. food controls your mood and energy level. With a lazy mind and low energy level you will never feel like working out
2. Losing eight is always inversely proportional to how much calorie you intake.

I personally eat a lot of whole grain to start my day and eat lot of vegetable ( mostly cooked) and kind of avoid meat to lost weight and maintain high energy level, fish and eggs are good source of protein for me. When I feel like bulking up, I just add meat to my diet. And just so that you know I am no bodybuilder and my best achievement is I can't remember when I visited doctor last time with health issue.

So all I am saying, bust your bum in gym and bust your eating habit first, and let me tell you one thing, it all starts from your mind, till you cannot lose questions like
"What would happen even if I become slim and slender?"
"Why should I work out to lose weight, managing food is enough"
"People are stupid who say health is wealth"

The day you start believing that health is the best wealth you can own you will automatically start going to gym and your first priority would be to lose weight and you will simply do anything to make that happen, be it eating garden fresh salad in lunch to cutting down those fancy restaurant dinners and wines.

How to motivate yourself to work out?

Since we are reaching almost 30s, we are losing our BMR and the regular eat outs and parties are putting a lot of calories to burn. And then the less we burn those extra calories they just stay underneath our skin as fat. Now there are 2 ways to cut down those extra pounds - cut down your calorie intake and start working out.

If you dint grow that habit of working out already then this is going to another challenge for you. Now I am working out for 10 years and I see people do not get enough motivation or strong drive to be physically active to cut down those extra pounds. So what does it take to work out and continue working out?

Honestly, I do not know what it would take to make you work out. I think it absolutely depends on the individual. Seriously work out sessions are really boring, really tiring and the after effects might give you aches and injuries those might not leave you soon. So how do I say that you are going to enjoy working out?

But, we all read and talk about benefits of work outs, I am not going to tell you those, as you already know probably more than me. I will try to share my story instead.

January, 2014 to June 2014 - I am 30 lbs heavier, super unfit, I found it impossible to run for 2 minutes. Result of age? No, I think that is mostly laziness, not working out, because in August , after I resumed my work out routine again, I am in better shape and my physical fitness is much better. Honestly, in last 11 years, the sense of a fit body and mind kept me going to gym, I have only one addiction in life, that's working out. Until you really start working out seriously and see the results, you will never be able to understand what you are missing in you are not working out.So all I will say, give 3 months to gym, work out seriously, get a trainer if you are new to gym, and you will see the results, then you will get your own motivation. One more thing, how you look and how you feel is not just about going to gym, it is mostly about your food habit.
