Picture 29

I went to the gym today, lets face over the holidays we tend to over-indulge. One  samosa becomes three samosas, one helping of butter chicken becomes five helpings,  one side of saag paneer becomes three (with extra paneer). You get the point and lets not count the holiday candy laying around the office or at home. One hershey kiss becomes… you tell me :) Achal Dua aka Mr. Bollywood Abs has some practical advice to get you back on track with your fitness goals.

Start with…Be Positive!

Here is what you need to do in order to get back on track and actually get in a healthier and better body in 2011!

1. Get rid of all the left overs (candy’s, sweets, pre-packaged/processed snacks etc etc)
You need realize that once its out of site its out of mind….I went to party this holiday season and I saw a SAMOSA and boom all of a sudden I had the urge of eating that samosa and trust me I don’t even remember when was the last time I thought about eating a samosa!

So you see get those unhealthy, tasty looking snack out of your house cause they are nothing but a layer between you and your TONED body!

2. Start drinking that CLEAR liquid:

You are what you eat and you look what you drink!

Drink lassi everyday and sure in a very short period of time you will start looking like thick lassi or a mango shake and same if you drink water soon you will start looking clear and thin like water….I drink almost 1.5 gallons a day (some would say that’s too much but don’t forget I live a very active lifestyle). So get rid of that soda can, that latte’s and stick to plain old water cause there is nothing like water in this world…..damn just writing this made me thirsty!!!

3. Move, mOvE, MoVe:

You know what I mean when I say move…exercise guys…Start a short-term relationship with a personal trainer!

A full-time trainer may not be in everyone’s budget, but don’t let that stop you from seeking professional advice. “Even if you only do two or three sessions, it can kick-start critical lifestyle changes. Plus you get a program that’s tailored to you,” I get lot of people those who come to me or email me for a workout program and if they are motivated enough they get great results…look at Aminder he is Toronto and emailed me about my advice and I helped him in last 2 months and look what he has achieved. Lost almost 30 lbs. (see below for a link): http://achaldua.blogspot.com/2011/01/1-1-11-how-to-get-rid-of-those-holiday.html

4. Eat more!

YES..I am telling you to eat more…but what should you eat?

Here is what you need to include in your everyday’s diet in order to get a chiseled you!

1. Oatmeal
2. Eggs
3. Chicken/Fish/Steak/Lentils/Soy
4. Broccoli
5. Almonds
6. Walnuts
7. Salad
8. Sweet Potato/Brown rice/whole wheat pasta

Now you know what you need to do in order start burning those SANTA lbs…..

GOOD LUCK and keep me posted…



What Do I get out of Following Shilpa Shetty?

Almost every one in Bollywood is jumping on the Twitter Bandwagon, it’s no secret this is a new way for Bollywood fans from all around the world to get “minute by minute” updates from their favorite Bollywood stars. I get my daily wisdom from Karan Johar @kjohar25 , random ass tweets from Abhishek Bachchan @juniorbachchan and health tips from Shilpa Shetty @theshilpashetty .

I was a bit skeptical following Shilpa, a couple of years ago, I went on a wild goose chase with this so called “agent” that was suppose to put me in touch with Shilpa for an interview. It never happen and then the agent was caught and arrested for fraud. The twitter account got verified (a way to tell a fake account from the real deal) and I became a Shetty follower.

At the Delhi airport, I came across Shetty’s yoga video, I was tempted to buy it but took the lazy way out and watched it on youtube. When it came to “downward dog” I had this enormous laughing fit, it happen to me a long time ago, when I attended a yoga couples class with an ex. Needless to say, the ex was embarrassed, we left early and never got a chance to reach “the couples zen state of mind” platform.

It’s no secret, Shilpa is a very health conscious woman, her tweets certainly prove that. I think she was looking for her own “nitch” to use twitter, instead of posting random Bollywood tidbits, most fans thrive on. In Mumbai, Shilpa introduced a weight loss program called Inch Lost Wrap “ILW” a holistic alternative for people who want to get a tighter waist. The wrap drains out toxins that have built up inside our bodies. It shrinks the fat cells, but doesn’t get rid of the them, so the client must understand this is used to loss inches around your waist.

Currently she’s away on summer holiday in her South East home in London, with hubby Raj Kundra.
