Healthy Eating and Weight loss – No Freakiness and No Fuss

 Aindriladafitweightlosstips 

After losing 85 pounds on my own, I feel I can share some lessons from journey with you. Here are some ideas that helped me:

1. Find healthy foods you love, and eat them consistently. 

Establish some go-to foods you love to eat and ask yourself “Can I eat this forever?” If the answer is yes, keep eating them! Find some staple lean meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, and brown-colored grains you enjoy and learn to grocery shop on auto-pilot. I love chicken, salmon, vegetables, yogurt, and apples. Once you find real, healthy, and nutritious foods you enjoy, your taste buds will adapt and you’ll start to crave these foods. 

2. Find exercise you love and do it to FEEL GOOD. 

I love running and I love yoga. I will run for as long as my ankles permit me because if I don’t I’ll get cranky and depressed. Conversely, I detest Zumba and spinning. Find exercises you enjoy and would do even if you reached your ideal weight. 

3. Start a food journal and track everything from sleep, bowel movements, and your appetite. 

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to good health. Some people prefer small portions of everything and others prefer volume. I’d rather eat a large quantity of healthy stuff over a bite of something indulgent. So I’ll spend my calories on more vegetables rather than more salad dressing and prefer to eat my biggest meal at dinner after a run rather than midday during work followed by afternoon meetings. Everyone has their own routine, so find what works for you. 

4. Do not follow fads or give up food groups if you don’t need to. 

Almost every diet — Mediterranean, vegan or Paleo — encourages us to eat whole foods and avoid processed foods, refined starches and sugar! The common denominator among all these popular diets is eating real foods closest to their natural state. When you label something “good” or “bad” you will tend to want the bad even more. Steel cut oatmeal is not Paleo and Greek yogurt is not vegan, but both are nutritious and healthy. Enjoy them if you like them! 

5. Always be prepared. 

Carry fruit or some other snack with you. I often tote a yogurt and granola with me to family dinners because I know there will be copious amounts of sweets served and I don’t want to succumb to temptation. Know your triggers and find healthier alternatives. 

6. Remember: You are not Beyonce prepping for “Dreamgirls” so don’t impose added pressure and a timeline. 

It took me years to lose 60 pounds but I never gained it back. Exercise and healthy eating are a lifestyle, not a project. Don’t just do it for a vacation, wedding or reunion. Do it forever. 

7. Find ways to nurture yourself emotionally. 

Yoga has quieted the negativity in my head. There are days when I need extra sleep, extra water, and extra rest, and on those days, I listen to my body and what it needs. Make sure to stay well rested, hydrated, and positive. You are your own best doctor, trainer, nutritionist and chef. Trust yourself and let common sense to be your guide.

Health – A Journey by AindrilaDaFit

What is cellular nutrition and what are the body cells?

Cellular Nutrition can be obtained only through a special blend of highly solvable vitamins and nutrients that help the body cells to absorb the nutrients and vitamins from foods and supplements. In order to get the inactive body cells to absorb vitamins and nutrients, they need to be cleaned up of toxins ,that keep them inactive, and activated.

When we think of weight loss, health and nutrition, few of us imagine the body cells. But actually, the body cells are the source of the body’s energy supply and the core of your health; it’s what keeps you not only functioning at optimal health and maintaining a good health and weight, but functioning at all.

The human body is made of about 75 Trillion cells, that’s 75,000,000,000,000 cells. The number of body cells depends on the body size. The body cells are forming tissues » tissues are forming organs » organs are forming systems and systems are forming the human body.

The issues that we are all facing today is not only the poor quality of foods, but also the fact that we do not absorb much nutrients and vitamins from foods and supplements. There is so much information about nutrition, health and weight loss that most people are confused and are trying all kind of crazy programs hoping to find what works.Cellular Nutrition

Environmental toxins are a fact of life. Every time you breathe, you are taking in airborne toxins. Much of the processed food you eat contains artificial ingredients, such as colors and preservatives, that do nothing to nourish your body.

As we age , most of our body cells get covered with toxins and cannot absorb all the nutrients that they need to maintain our health, ideal weight and daily energy.

In order to become healthier and stay healthy, we need cellular nutrition that acts at the core of our body, the CELLULAR LEVEL .

The nutrition we recommend is cellular nutrition , that acts at the cell level, cleans them up from toxins and activates the cells so they can absorb the nutrients and vitamins from foods and supplements and be healthy again.

Studies show that it takes a few months, while on cellular nutrition program, for your cells to start functioning properly again; Like when you were a child. Once your cells are healthy & active, you will really become healthy. And you can easily reach our health goal, whether you need to lose weight, gain weight, get more energy, sleep well or just simply become healthy and feel great.

When the body gets all the nutrients it needs, in the right amount, properly balanced, that is no tell how powerful it can become. It will be able to do all the work for us, keep us healthy and at the right weight.

Why do children have so much energy?

Kids have energy , sleep great and feel amazing because their body cells are not covered with toxins. Therefore their body is still absorbing all the necessary nutrients to keep them healthy, at the right weight and energetic all day long.

Several years ago , we could only imagine how great it would be to feel as great, healthy and energetic as we felt when we were kids. Today, that dream can become reality.

As you probably figured out by now, becoming healthy and losing weight it is not only a matter of what we eat and do, but more importantly it is a matter of absorption.

About Bharatnatyam by AindrilaDaFit

Bharatnatyam: Indian Classical Dance History
Flying through air, carving shapes in space; a story to tell. Stand, squat, sit jump and twirl. Revel in the flurry of foot movements – Bharatanatyam is an extensive and beautiful dance form; extensive in its history, technique, interpretations and costume. It is exacting but very beautiful, very graceful.
Bharatanatyam has not always been called Bharatanatyam. Sadir and Dasi Attam are some of the names synonymous with what has now emerged to be called Bharatanatyam .
Sadir was revived by Rukmini Dev Arundale who nationalized the dance, introduced changes in costume and style and associated it with chastity. Kalakshetra was established by her to revive Sadir, now Bharatanatyam, by her interpretation of the dance and the institute still runs successfully.

What a student of Bharatanatyam is traditionally taught is that Bharatanatyam is named after Bharatamuni, writer of the Natya Shastra and that its etymological meaning comprises the syllables, Bha (bhava or expression), Ra (raga or music) and Ta (rhythm). These prefixed with ‘Natyam’ or dance, then, make Bharatanatyam a dance of expression, music and rhythm.

I just feel instead of creating lots of style in Bharatanatyam ; we all should try to glorify this beautiful dance with
Bha ; Ra ; Ta …..
