An extraction from my reading experience, which converted me a writer. I cannot spend a single day without writing, even though I had to get up in the midnight to do it. Though,there is not much progress in my professional career now, but I feel writing converted me to an absolutely different personality. “Ordinary people seek entertainment. Extraordinary people seek education and learning.” -Benjamin Hardy Most people are distracted right now.They’re distracted while they’re at work. They’re distracted when they’re with family and friends.They’re distracted at the gym, on their commute, and even in the shower.The mediocre majority will continue going through life this way, never experiencing the fullness of a life filled with deep focus and purpose.Most people don’t prioritize learning and creating. They don’t care enough about any efforts to invest in their personal development and growth.Entertainment is more important. Most people have replaced achieving their life dreams and goals with TV, partying, and social media.Their life is characterized by entertainment and distraction, not learning and creating.As a result, they don’t have close relationships. They’re stuck in jobs they hate. Their life is on the fast-track to disappointment, and they don’t know what to do.Benjamin Hardy once said, “Entertainment and distraction is the enemy of creation and learning. They will keep you in mediocrity.”If you don’t want to end up living a life of mediocrity, focus on learning and education. It’s the fastest way to become extraordinary, wealthy, and successful.The Quality of Your Learning Determines the Quality of Your Success“Your level of success will rarely exceed your level of personal development, because success is something you attract by the person you become.” -Hal ElrodYour income, relationships, and success are determined by your learning.Most people spend more money on entertainment and gadgets than self-education. This is why they remain poor and broke with superficial relationships.The quality of your learning and how much you invest in yourself directly determines the extent of your growth.In the words of Ryan Holiday:“The extent of the struggle determines the extent of the growth.”You are defined by what you’re willing to struggle for. Most people aren’t willing to really struggle for anything. They blindly accept what they’re given, and spend their free time disengaging from reality.Renowned motivational speaker Jim Rohn once said the most successful people in the world are always lifelong learners. They fully understand that their level of education directly determines their quality of life.“Formal education makes a living, but self-education makes a fortune,” Rohn explained.It’s not just about a college degree. Most of what you learn in college isn’t applicable to real-world success. It’s your self-education, the kind of learning that helps you develop into the next evolution of yourself.Most people will continue to go through life “in quiet desperation, with their songs left unsung.” Others dictate their income, their happiness, and their fulfillment.If you don’t want to end up with regret on your death-bed, choose self-education over entertainment.“You’ve got to wake up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.” George LarimerWe Attract the Things That Reflect Who We AreDarren Hardy, author of The Compound Effect, once told a story about how he ended up with his wife.When he was in his 20’s, he began compiling an enormous list of every attribute he wanted his future wife to have. He eventually filled 40 pages detailing the most exquisite and perfect match he could think of.At the end of his writing, he realized something very important:Any woman like that wouldn’t want to have anything to do with someone like him!Hardy realized he needed to become a far better version of himself to attract a woman like that.You must become a far better version of yourself to achieve the enormous success you want.Benjamin Hardy put it this way: “We attract into our lives what we are.” Ask yourself — if you want a million dollars, do you have the mindset of a millionaire? Do you have the financial knowledge and self-discipline to own that kind of money?Most people don’t, yet they continue complaining about being poor. You’ll never become a millionaire if you don’t become someone who could be a millionaire!Every day, millions of people attract mediocre opportunities into their lives — jobs, time investments, dating partners, etc. — not realizing they are attracting exactly who they are!Extremely successful people are magnets of extraordinary opportunities. They are individuals who gravitate towards success, because they are successful themselves.If you constantly engage in mediocre, subpar activities with toxic individuals, you’ll only receive similar opportunities. You’ll never experience the type of success of the world’s most extraordinary people, because success is something you attract by the person you become.“Every next level of your life will demand a different you.” -Leonardo DiCaprioStep Forward Into Growth or Backwards Into Security“It’s absurd that we would prioritize the hottest new device, the cool car, or trendy toy over owning that which makes us feel the most engaged and most alive.” -Neil PatelC.S. Lewis once described humans this way: “We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”You do not have the luxury to “wait” to improve. Like an egg, you’ll either progress into a new version of yourself, or go rotten. There is no other way.Most people continue choosing security and safety over the choice to become the fullest version of themselves.Said Louis Sachar:“So, what’s it going to be — safety, or freedom? You can’t have both.”Right now, you have the choice — step forward into growth and development, or step backwards into safety and security.Most people step backward, slowly killing their chances to become extraordinary.Seth Godin once said, “The problem is that our culture has engaged in a Faustian bargain, in which we trade our genius and artistry for apparent stability.”The sad truth is: there’s no such thing as security. Money can be taken away (how many times have you heard of a multi-millionaire going bankrupt?). Our health could fail at any time. Millions of people are abruptly fired or laid off every year.Security isn’t real.We must choose to design our own life, and let go of our addiction to “apparent stability.” If you’ve traded your genius and creativity for “stability,” it’s time to get those back.“The goal of life is not to relax on the beach, sipping mojitos all day. The purpose is to find something you love that adds value to the world.” -Ben FoleyMost People Won’t Ever Experience True Success“The mediocre have a very narrow perception of reality, and in turn, their lives. They see things as they are, not how they can be.” -Ryan HolidayLearning and self-education aren’t popular. Most people don’t read books, attend seminars, or take even the most basic steps for self-improvement. They would rather choose distraction and entertainment.Most people will never be successful because they will spend their life this way.With just a few small changes to your life, you could enter into the top 5% — 10% of your field. The competition is extremely low! Amazing, extraordinary opportunities are abundant, because so few people ever take the steps to discover them.You can become one of the few truly successful people in the world by taking your self-education and learning seriously. In a world of mediocrity, you can become extraordinary with only a few simple tweaks.So how do you start?The more you keep evolving in better versions of yourself, the more you’ll need to be focused on the things that are most important.Your days must be characterized by high-quality activities and behaviors.Benjamin Hardy put it this way: “Success is continuously improving who you are, how you live, how you serve, and how you relate.”James Altucher once said, “Every day, check these 4 boxes: Have I improved 1% on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health?”You can start small. Even the smallest improvement is more than most people will ever see. While most people change slowly and unconsciously over time, you can begin taking control of your success by choosing to make a few small improvements.That’s all it takes.If You Want to Live an Extraordinary Life, You Need to Give Up a Normal One“If you want to live an extraordinary life, you have to give up many of the things that are part of a normal one.” -Srinivas RaoExtraordinary people are very uncommon. Their lifestyle of learning and self-education aren’t popular, either. Odds are, once you begin investing in yourself, you’ll find it’s a lonely road.Todd Henry wisely said, “The more bold you are, the more rejection you’ll experience.” The mob of the majority doesn’t like deserters.If you want an extraordinary life, you’ll need to give up many parts of the “normal” life. That might mean giving up common toxic behaviors or hanging out with toxic people. If “everyone does it,” you’d do well to give it a long, hard look.Most people will never achieve an extraordinary life. That’s OK. The extraordinary life isn’t for everyone. Learning and self-education take time, energy, and focus that most people would rather spend on entertainment and distraction — “ordinary” things.“Great” opportunities cost “good” ones; you can’t have both.Said Benjamin Hardy:Before you evolve, you can reasonably spend time with just about anyone.You can reasonably eat anything placed in front of you.You can reasonably justify activities and behaviors that are, frankly, mediocre.But as your vision expands, you realize you need to make adjustments. You can’t spend your money on junk anymore. You need to manage your time much more diligently. You need to invest in yourself and your future.To avoid mediocrity, you can’t continue being with negative people.You can’t keep eating crappy foods that slow you down.You can’t do many of the things you used to do.This is what extraordinary requires. Most people see the price and simply say “no thanks.”But you can do anything if you pay the price.“Every skill you acquire doubles your odds of success.” -Scott AdamsIn Conclusion“Who you are is a result of who you were, but where you end up depends entirely on who you choose to be from this moment forward.” -Hal ElrodThere are probably dozens of things you do on a daily basis that aren’t helping you improve.Most people live their lives on other people’s terms. Their days are spent working on other people’s goals and following the rules of someone else.Entertainment and distraction rule society. There will never be a shortage of TV shows, Buzzfeed articles, or Bad Lip Reading videos to take up your time.If you want to avoid mediocrity and achieve enormous success, you must cut out distractions and prioritize learning instead.Most people will go their whole lives as a slave to entertainment. They prioritize entertainment over improving their life, their family’s well-being, and their hopes and dreams.This is how people can stay at jobs they hate for years. It’s how people stay in toxic relationships and remain perpetually broke. They don’t bother learning how to succeed.If your lifestyle does not add to your growth and improvement, it will bring you down.Prioritize learning. Invest in self-education.Choose success over mediocrity.
District 92, Division D Toastmaster Humorous Speech Contest, Second Runner up: My Humorous speechTitle: Dear, I hate you!!!Opening:I’m lazy and I know itAt this rate I’ll never get fitPeople are afraid of heightsI am afraid of widthsOh my soul, be thou quietThis is not ‘another diet’Just a program of exchangeThough some things do seem strangeRaw vegetables and ‘brock-o-lee’Does not sound too good to meLots of tofu and bean sproutsWhile my empty stomach shoutsThe meaning here is quite plain;This program is designed for painMy hands are sweating, my soul is dreadingI must keep this thing from spreadingBody: Good Afternoon obese guests, overweight toastmasters and frustrated corpulent Judges…“Sorry, I am in relationship with food” this was my answer whenever any guy was approaching me till that fine one romantic rainy evening!!!I was waiting in front of the doctor’s room. As usual, the doctor approached with the report after a looooong hour wait.Giving a wicked look, he said “I have a bad news & a good news. What should come first?”I thought for a while & questioned him “Mr. Doctor. Is the bad news too bad? Or is the good news too good”.He answered, “Dear Suchi, the bad news is going to be tragic & the good news will bring a ray of hope in your life”. After gathering some courage, I told the doctor “Sir. Bad news first”.“This is not to dishearten you, but according to your reports your weight is going out of control now. Your body is blowing like a balloon. You are overweight by 25 kg!” Hearing this, first tear broke free from my eyes, the rest followed in an unbroken stream.Trying to console me, the doctor said “Darling. There is a good news too. This disease of obesity which is haunting you now is totally curable. You are very lucky to be diagnosed well on time. It would have been very difficult if you showed during the final stage”. I was amazed at the doctor’s wonderful statement about my life-threatening disease!!! I collected my reports & walked back home. What is the reason of getting more and more of those tiny creatures, who live in my closet and sew my clothes a liitle bit tighter every night…calories?Then the coolest place of my house having food carrying capacity of 10 peoples…my refrigerator gave a smile at me!!! whenever i lose some weight, i used to get it back in my refrigerator!!!I wish losing weight would be as easier for me as losing my keys, watch, hair rubber band, temper & even mind.” Instead of blaming myself my heart said “Dear, You are not overweight, you are just under tall!!!”.Then, I decided to have a fight between food & me. Everything is fair in love & war & this was a war. I had to win. “A healthy diet for a healthy body”, “You are what you eat”, “Whatever your problem is, your answer is not in fridge” I collected all motivational quotes for dieting & started placing them on my cupboard, my room walls, even on my refrigerator door.Then I started googling “How to lose weight”. There were unbelievable suggestions. A kind lady in one of her articles claimed that she lost 20 pounds in a month by writing 3 pages daily.So, my dear dispirited plumpy audience, you can imagine who is the inspiring hero behind my becoming a blogger!!!I try to remove all things those make me fat…like scales, mirrors and photographs!!! Conclusion: Dear mirthless TMs, rejected Guests and long faced Judges!!!After a passionate, enthusiastic follow up of my diet plan, the day of test match came, when I had to attend a big fat wedding party. Sweets were looking mesmerized in many colorful, fancy dresses. A dark red cherry was smiling at me sitting on the top of triple story frosted cake.“New body is under construction. Please let me go.” I turned backwards only to see hot, delicious, mouthwatering chocolate sizzler on the table. The enemy was very strong & well equipped, while I was handling an unequipped one-woman army. I fall prey to my food desire. “Dear my favorite foods. Things are not going to work between us. It’s not me. It’s you. You are detrimental, disastrous and deleterious!!!” I lie on the floor completely dead for few minutes. I stood up & I rushed to the front table, where a range of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and unsalted seeds, nuts were kept!!! The toughest part of DIET is not watching what you eat. Its watching what other people eat!!! But! I had conquered all the toughest parts related to DIET. So dear friends, how many of you is having courage to hate all the enemies related to DIET and to say ”Good Bye Dear, I don’t want you in my life anymore!!!”

Everyone has got a favorite treatment or a face cream but beautiful skin actually starts with nourishment from inside. You should know that older cells are always shed and they’re soon replaced by younger ones and a constant supply of the main nutrients is vital for supporting rapid growth. When you eat the right balance of foods, you can give your skin the vital nutrients it requires to stay supple, soft and blemish-free.As much as you can try to resist it, human skin naturally ages. This is something we can’t avoid as this is the inevitable part of aging and age spots, wrinkles and overexposure to the sun, strong soaps, poor nutrition and chemicals leads to fast aging. Keeping this in mind, it is best to adopt a holistic approach towards your skin care routine. Importance of Nutrition for your healthIt is important for you to give proper nutrition to your health as because an unhealthy diet can always cause damage to metabolism, promote weight gain and also have an impact on the organs like liver and heart. Something that you eat will also have an impact on the health of your skin which is the largest organ of your body. Hence, it can be said without doubt that diet will always have an impact on your body and this makes it even clearer that what you eat can have a considerable impact on the aging of your skin and on the overall health. SkinB5, a product which offers solution to acne and other skin issues may also be tried for best results. Eat your way to smooth skin – Few of the best recommended foods#1: FATTY FISHHave you heard of fatty fish names like mackerel, salmon or herring which all have amazing benefits for a healthy skin? Well, you may not have known this but they are indeed rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids which are vital for maintaining good health of your skin. Omega-3 fatty acids are vital to keep skin supple, thick and moisturized. In case there is a sudden deficiency of omega-3 fats, this can lead to excessive dry skin. Omega-3 fats which are found in the aforementioned fishes reduce inflammation which can be the ultimate cause behind the acne and redness and it can even make your skin less sensitive to the harmful UV rays of the sun. They’re also a resource of all the Vitamin E which is one of the main antioxidants which helps your skin.#2: WALNUTSWalnuts also have several kinds of features which make them a perfect food for healthy skin. They’re indeed the best source of fatty acids which are those fats which aren’t made by the human body. Walnuts tend to be richer than most other forms of nuts in both omega-6 and 3 fatty acids. Remember that a diet which is too rich in omega-6 fats will induce inflammation and might lead to psoriasis. On the other hand, omega-3 fats help in reducing inflammation and also in the skin. #3: AVOCADOSAs long as healthy fats are concerned, avocados are rich in them and such fats benefit different function in the body like the health of your skin. In order to maintain a moisturized and flexible skin, you have to get enough of these fats. As per a study done on more than 700 women, it was found out that high consumption of total fat; especially the healthy fats found in avocados were directly related to springy and supple skin. Avocados are rich in Vitamin E which is a vital antioxidant which assists in protecting your skin from oxidative damage. Since Vitamin E is that nutrient which majority of the Americans don’t get enough of, it is better to have avocados. It is also essential for our skin to have enough amounts of Vitamin C for getting healthy and fresh skin. These days, it is rare to have a deficiency of Vitamin C but still there are few common symptoms like rough, dry and scaly skin which gets bruised easily. A 100 gm serving which is around half of an avocado offers 10% of RDI of Vitamin R and 18% of RDI of Vitamin C. #4: SUNFLOWER SEEDSIn general, seeds and nuts are the best sources of nutrients which are vital for healthy skin. One of the best examples are sunflower seeds. Just 1 ounce of sunflower seeds have 34% of antioxidant selenium, 10% of zinc and 5.4 grams of protein. Besides having this ability, sunflower seeds are one of the best sources of linoleic acid which is omega 6 fat which helps the skin in staying flexible, thick and moisturized. As per an observational study done on 5000 women, it was seen that a high intake of linoleic acid is always related to reduced risk of thin and dry skin due to aging. Hence, sunflower seeds are vital source of nutrients which include Vitamin E which is a vital antioxidant for your skin. #5: YELLOW OR RED BELL PEPPERSDid you know that bell peppers are a vital source of beta carotene? If you have 1 cup of chopped red bell pepper, this will have 92% of vitamin A. They can also be said to be the best resources of Vitamin C, the antioxidant which is required for creating collagen and which keeps the skin strong and firm. When you have a single cup of bell pepper, this offers you an impressive 318% of Vitamin C as per what you need daily. When you eat plenty of Vitamin C, this is usually associated with low change of skin aging and reduced wrinkles and other inevitable signs of aging.Therefore, when you eat the right things, this will definitely have the intended impact on your skin. So, when a healthy skin is all that is there in your mind, you should take enough vital nutrients for safeguarding your skin. Take into account the foods that are given on the list and start taking them to reap their benefits.
😊The Hormones Of Happiness : How To Increase Them😊...............................................All of your feelings and emotions are a result of chemical reactions taking place in your body. These reactions are responsible for making you feel negative emotions, like anger and sadness, as well as positive emotions, like love and happiness. Read on to find out what your happy hormones are and how you can increase them.😊Endorphins..........***Endorphins are your body's natural painkillers, since they block pain. Most people are aware of the fact that exercise releases endorphins, but they don't realise the reason for this. Way back in the stone ages, endorphins were important to our ancestors because they enabled them to keep running through the pain and escape predators. Today, we don't need to escape predators anymore, so we only produce endorphins when we perform anaerobic exercises, since endorphins help us to keep going even after we deplete our oxygen stores.Ways to increase your endorphin levels:***• Exercise to cope with chronic pain.• Eat spicy food, since your tongue has receptors that react to spice by sending messages to your brain that are similar to pain signals, causing your brain to trigger the release of endorphins.😊Serotonin***Serotonin is the key hormone of happiness, since it regulates mood, prevents depression, thwarts irritation and makes you happy and sociable.Ways to increase your serotonin levels:***• Spend time in the sun, since sunlight causes your body to produce Vitamin D, which triggers the release of serotonin.• Think happy thoughts, since your brain produces serotonin when you remember happy memories or think about things that make you happy.• Consume foods like milk and corn, since they contain tryptophan, a substance that your body converts to serotonin. Other carbohydrates also contain tryptophan.• Do a low-intensity workout, since your body produces serotonin when it is performing aerobic exercise, as opposed to the endorphins it produces during anaerobic exercise.😊Dopamine..........***Dopamine is a pleasure hormone that is released when you strive towards a goal. Dopamine motivates you to work hard so that you can achieve the satisfaction of reaching that goal. It also keeps you mentally alert and helps you focus.Ways to increase your dopamine levels:***• Set daily or monthly goals, since they give you something to strive towards.• Set exercise goals, since dopamine increases in tandem with serotonin and endorphins when you exercise. Setting goals will increase the production of dopamine even more.• Eat foods that are rich in protein.😊Oxytocin......****Oxytocin is the love hormone, and is released in large amounts during sexual intercourse and childbirth, but also during other types of affectionate physical contact, like hugging. Oxytocin also increases feelings of love and trust.Ways to increase your oxytocin levels: 😊• Get a massage, since it relaxes your muscles and the prolonged physical contact triggers the release of oxytocin.• Show your friends and family that you love them by touching them affectionately. You can hug your parents, throw an arm around a friend or cuddle up with your partner.😊What are the limitations of these hormones?*****Hormones are effective, but they do have their limitations. The effects of endorphins are only temporary. If you have had a fight with someone for example, exercising will make you feel better for a while, but until you sort out the fight your unhappiness will keep returning. Oxytocin is a great way to build a relationship, but common sense dictates that you can't love and trust everyone you meet or you will be the victim of several scams. Too much dopamine is unhealthy, since it can cause addictions.source: internetRajabala
Chhaupadi (Nepali: छाउपडी )It is a social tradition associated with the menstrual taboo in the western part of Nepal. The tradition prohibits Hindu women from participating in normal family activities while menstruating, as they are considered "impure". The women are kept out of the house and have to live in a cattle shed or in a hut. This period of time lasts between ten and eleven days when an adolescent girl has her first period; thereafter, the duration is between four and seven days each month. As per the social custom, women who are unmarried have to stay six days in the hut, married women having both a son and a daughter have to stay five days, and women who have only daughters will have to live for seven days in the hut. During this time, women are forbidden to touch men or even to enter the courtyard of their own homes. They are barred from consuming milk, yogurt, butter, meat, and other nutritious foods, for fear they will forever pollute those goods. The women must survive on a diet of dry foods, salt, and rice. They cannot use warm blankets and are allowed only a small rug; most commonly, this is made of jute (also known as burlap). They are also restricted from going to school or performing daily functions like taking a bath. They are not even allowed to bathe from the tap, in wells or rivers during that period of time. In some villages, there are separate taps and wells for the women. They are completely barred from going near the temple; if a road is even linked to a temple, a menstruating woman has to choose a different path.This system comes from the superstition of impurity during the menstruation period. In this superstitious logic, if a menstruating woman touches a tree, it will never again bear fruit; if she consumes milk, the cow will not give any more milk; if she reads a book, Saraswati, the goddess of education, will become angry; if she touches a man, he will be sick. There is a strong belief among locals that if women are allowed to stay inside the home during their menstrual period it would bring misfortunes for members of family and the family members will fall sick. Male members of the family believe the custom must be followed to avoid any bad luck. Senior members of families and village elders are firm in this tradition, while the young, educated generation cannot gather the courage to challenge this custom.Reports indicate that more than 90 percent of women in Nepal’s far-western and mid-western districts follow the Chhaupadi tradition, whether due to social pressure or according to their own wishes. As they are compelled to sleep in poorly constructed and dirty huts, these women face health problems and other risks. Woman who live in the huts are always at risk of diarrhea, pneumonia, and respiratory diseases. While living in the isolated huts, they also face the danger of attack by wild animals, snake bite or even abuse and rape by their fellow villagers. Women have died while performing the practice, including two young women in late 2016 who died from smoke inhalation and "carbon monoxide poisoning" from lighting fires to heat the shelters during cold weather.Following pressure from rights activists, last year Nepal’s parliament enacted a law labeling Chhaupadi a criminal act. As per the new law, people who force their family members to live in sheds are subject to legal actions. Nepal’s Supreme Court had directed the government to make laws criminalizing Chhaupadi all the way back in 2005; it took more than a decade to formulate the laws. Now that the laws are in place, the challenge is in effective implementation. It is not easy to implement laws to prevent long- standing customs like Chhaupadi. In comparison to the past, there have been some changes in urban areas but such practices are still rampant in rural areas. In this region, it is very difficult to change the mindset of even educated people. Local politicians and political parties can play a vital role in creating awareness at the local level about the harms of this custom. However, politicians are often reluctant to highlight this issue because they fear of losing the support of common people. Parliamentarians rarely raise such issues in the national parliament; instead they want to conceal such social issues. Some non-governmental organizations at the local level and some government agencies are creating awareness, asking people to shun Chhaupadi, but due to the lack of support and backing from politicians, their campaigns have not been effective.Source: Kamal Dev Bhattarai (Kathmandu-based writer and journalist)Rajabala

What to eat on Keto diet for 2 weeks weight loss result?
Trekking is a holistic activity that takes you to places that are unbelievably picturesque. Places that you may have seen in photographs and postcards. The glistening mountain tops and pristine lakes are not the only things that are tempting to the soul. The foods in these areas of the world are so different to the taste buds and very new to enthusiastic souls who like to discover these new things while travelling.The fun in travelling lies in these small discoveries that one makes. While trekking, one comes across so many kinds of mesmerising terrains and landscapes, the soul and the body is ready to accept all the good that the foods of the local area brings along in the course of the journey. Not just the food but the native cultures and traditions are rich, diverse and a segment of traditional beliefs that have passed down the ages. Nepal is a place that is known for the diverse amount of trekking trails and terrains, for trek enthusiasts to dwell in. The best part is that trekking in Nepal does not burn a huge hole in your pocket, that’s why Nepal is a favourite amongst enthusiasts. One of the most famous tracks for trekking is the Everest base camp trekking in Nepal. People, who want to get close to the highest mountain in the world, opt for this trekking trail once in Nepal.There is a long list of foods that you should eat while on a trekking trip, but there are 5 important foods and beverages that you must absolutely avoid while starting on a trekking journey. 1. Alcoholic beveragesConsumption of alcohol lowers your energy outlet and drags down your focus while trekking. More than anything, alcohol is a beverage that stirs your emotional levels and hampers the progress on your mental capacity on a trek. Trekking is an activity that requires your mind to be aware and alert at all times; a loss of one second of your attention span can lead to fatal accidents. It is worse if you go through a hangover before starting a lengthy trek. It is true that people consume alcohol to ward off the chilling winds in a trek, but that is only really small quantities of alcohol. It is always better to celebrate with alcohol after the trek is over. 2. Cold meatsYou may have heard that meat is a very strong source of proteins and energy, but you may not know that you can obtain the same quantity of proteins and vitamins from so many kinds of vegetables. More than anything, why the consumption of meat is so bothersome is that, meat can be preserved and kept for inculcating flavour, and the proteins in the meat don’t survive for long. So, what you consume in the end is a dead flesh that has been cured for flavour. While trekking you need proteins and vitamins to keep you trekking in a consistent manner, it is not advisable to consume dead flesh while on a trek that needs you to produce the energy from within. Especially while on a trek to Nepal do not expect a lot of variety in meat. If you are used to eating beef forget that you will find beef anywhere, cow is the national animal of Nepal and it is highly offensive to consume beef or steak. 3. Carbonated drinksWhen on a trek you must take care of your abdomen and stomach. Try to eat foods that do not upset the stomach a lot. Especially consuming all natural based items is advisable. Carbonated drinks only serve for flavour and the taste buds while not being a very healthy option while on a trek. For energy boost and refreshment, try drinking natural vegan milks and fruit juices instead. 4. RiceEating rice in large amounts causes your stomach to swell and this makes it hard for you to carry your own weight on a trek. Rice is necessary for the carbohydrates that is provides but consuming too much out of hunger is not advised. This is because rice does not provide lot of roughage for exercising the abdomen. Rather breads like the traditional Nepali roti are full of proteins and roughage. 5. Processed foodsAny form of processed foods is likely to contain very less amounts of the vitamins of that particular food. Processed foods also contain traces of preservatives that are not beneficial for your energy flow. Avoid processed foods and try to consume more foods that can be naturally sourced, even if it lacks in flavour which is very unlikely, opt for natural foods, fruits and vegetables. While on an important trek, or any trekking expedition for that matter, try to go as vegan or vegetarian as possible. The greens that you consume hold a lot more energy than meat and other alternatives you consume for proteins. There are a lot of foods that are essential for treks, and believe it or not, while on a trek, the simplest foods like rice, wheat and lentils are the best source of energy. The locals thrive on this kind of food and it is what keeps them surviving and it the best shape to be alive on these terrains. We may be tourists but the natives are locals they are one with the mountains and the natural surroundings. So follow their lead and do in Rome as the Romans do.
Steps to create a healthy diet plan:-) Know your fitness goal.) Calculate your daily maintenance calorie and ideal daily calorie intake.) Calculate your ideal daily protein intake.) Calculate your ideal daily fat intake.) Calculate your daily carbs intake.) Arranging food items, meal frequency and timing.Fitness Goal:-Fitness goal varies with every individual. Some want to lose fat, some want to gain fat, some wants to lose weight, some wants to gain weight, some wants to gain muscle and some wants to be just fit and healthy. I have classified fitness goals in three major categories. They are:-) Building and Gaining:- This category includes people who want to gain muscle( either a little bit of muscle or a whole lot of muscle), gain weight and gain fat. These people have to go for a caloric surplus diet plan.)Losing and Reducing:- This category includes people who want to lose fat( either large or small in number/percentage), lose weight, reduce belly fat, reduce love handles or fat from any specific area. These all come under this category. These people have to go for the caloric deficit diet plan.) Maintain and Improve:- This category includes people who want just to be healthy and fit, to maintain their current weight.So see under which category you are depending on your fitness goals. And let’s carry on.Daily Maintenance Calorie and ideal calorie intake:-Every work which we do burns our body calories whether it is walking, weight lifting, playing basketball or even digesting. The amount of calorie which we burn throughout our day is called as daily maintenance calorie. We should provide our body with a similar amount of calories which we burn through our daily activities. Except for water all other foods contain calories. So in order to be fit, we should be very cautious while creating our diet plan so that we get the perfect amount of calories which fulfils our daily requirement and helps in achieving our fitness goals.Calculate your daily maintenance calorie by below link:-Calorie CalculatorNow you know your fitness goals and daily maintenance calorie. Let's move forward and figure out your daily calorie intake.Depending on your fitness goals we have three categories of daily calorie intake:-) Caloric Surplus( Building & Gaining):- People who want to gain muscle( either a little bit of muscle or a whole lot of muscle), gain weight and gain fat should go with a caloric surplus. In this category, a person consumes more calories than his body requires. After utilizing the required calories the leftover calories are stored in the body in the form of fat and muscles.Now here some question comes in our mind:-Does caloric surplus increases the fat percentage in our body and makes us fat?How we can convert unused calories only to muscles but not in fat?The answer to this question is that we have to send some signals to our body indicating it to store unused calories only in the form of muscles but not in fact. We send these signals through a workout. When we workout we break our muscle tissues and thus our body uses excess calories to repair those tissues instead of increasing fat percentage in our body. Our diet plan also has an important role in this aspect.How much excess calorie intake should be included in our diet?The excess calorie intake should be 20% more than daily maintenance calorie level. Like if a person has figured out his daily maintenance calorie and got 2050. Then in case of gaining and building he should consume ( 2050 + 20% of 2050 ) = 2460 calories per day. This will increase the weight of a person but it doesn’t then add more extra 250 calories and figure out your body performance.2. ) Caloric Deficit (Losing and Reducing):- People who want to lose fat( either large or small in number/percentage), lose weight, reduce belly fat, reduce love handles or fat from any specific area should go with a caloric deficit. In this category, a person consumes fewer calories than his body requires. Due to insufficiently supplied calories, his body starts burning the stored fat and muscles to get the required calories. That is how a person loses weight, fat.Again this raises some question in our mind :-Does going into caloric deficit is good if it starts burning our muscle tissues?What to do if we want only fat in our body to be burned nut, not muscles?Answers to these questions are the same as that of previous question answer. Our workout indicates body to burn only fat from our body but not muscles. This is how we can decrease our body fat percentage by keeping muscle percentage constant or by increasing it.How much less calorie should we consume in our diet?The calorie intake should be 20 % less than daily maintenance calorie level. Like if a person has figured out his daily maintenance calorie and got 2050. Then in case of losing and reducing he should consume ( 2050 – 20% of 2050 ) = 1640 calories per day. This will reduce the weight of a person but it doesn’t then subtract more 250 calories and figure out your body performance.3. ) Maintenance:- People who want just to be healthy and fit, to maintain their current weight should go for caloric balance in their diet. It means their caloric intake should be equal to caloric burnt. Thus in this case body will neither store calories or burn calories stored in the form of fats or muscles. There will be no change in weight, fat percentage or muscle mass.Ideal daily protein intake in our diet:-Protein intake depends on the daily activity level of a person. It can be given in four ranges which are as follows:-Male/Female is not involved in weight training or any other form of exercise. Then they need ( 0.5 to 0.7 ) gram of protein per pound of their body weight.Male/Female doing some form of exercise daily then they need ( 0.8 to 1 ) gram of protein per pound of their body weight.Female involved in weight training requires ( 1 to 1.2 ) gram of protein per pound of their body weight.Male involved in weight training requires ( 1 to 1.5 ) gram of protein per pound of their body weight.Decide your protein intake range and calculate your daily calorie intake from protein where 1 gram of protein = 4 calories.Ideal daily fat intake in our diet :-Ideal fat intake is 20% to 30% of your ideal daily calorie intake. For example, a person has 2050 as ideal daily calorie intake. Then he must consume fat in the range of (20% of 2050 to 30% of 2050) which equals ( 410 to 615 ) calories from fat. One gram of fat has 9 calories so he should consume ( 410/9 to 615/9 ) = (46 to 68 ) grams of fat per day.Calculate your daily calorie intake from fat where 1 gram of fat = 9 calories.Ideal daily carbs intake :-Now you know your daily calorie intake from protein and fats, so to know daily calorie intake from carbs just subtract daily calorie intake from protein and fats with your ideal daily calorie intake and the remaining calories is to be consumed from carbohydrates. Just divide the calories from carbohydrates by 4 and you will get the daily carbohydrate intake in grams because 1 carbohydrate = 4 calories.Arranging food items, meal frequency and timing :-Now you know how much protein, fats and carbohydrates you should consume per day. After knowing these intake the task is to select the ideal sources for these nutrients and to arrange them in proper meals. The meal frequency varies with every individual so just decide your meal frequency and their timings based on your comfort level.I hope this blog Diet Plan|Create a healthy diet plan by yourself has provided you with sufficient information needed to create a diet plan.
