I don’t believe in diets. They seem to always crop up around the time some company in the West wants to peddle its products more. Most are unhealthy, with the known #yoyoweight effect and as such pointless!
I don’t believe in deprivation. Fasting for a religion or godman is another form of mind control for me. In a country where hunger is rampant, I find it insane that people would rather starve than eat a particular food or not eat at all in a particular month…
I believe in discipline. I believe in pushing the mind and the body beyond their capabilities.
As a kid I woke up at 4.30am most mornings to go ride horses by 5.45am, then played basketball, did Karate, swam, cycled and went to school of course and all these helped discipline me.
Over time we lose that spirit and though I’ve enjoyed every bit of breaking free, travelling, working I felt I lost a major part of myself through losing my discipline.
My amazing #fitnessguru NamrataPurohit has always pushed me, knowing I’m not doing enough to power on at my best and so she suggested baby steps … making small changes in the way I eat, eating clean, no matter what sticking to what I had started out to do and basically giving up ever so often.
This is my 2nd attempt at a major detox in my life and I’ve gone 6 days straight without a single drop of alcohol in my body (and I’m half Sardar and I love my wine and my closest buds will know how difficult not having even a glass of red over these many days is for me), eating absolutely right, working out everyday and I’m feeling incredible.
My mind wants to feed me clean foods and my body is rejecting anything that’s not. I’m focused, determined and making lifelong choices that can only keep me at my fittest best!
