Day 18 - Slim fast ... Gain weight ... Ufff!

I think I have set myself up-for-a-failure. According to a study from New York University, people who talk about something they are working towards may be less likely to actually accomplish it. It seems that speaking about your ambitions can make you feel like you've already achieved them, making you a slack-er! I should have probably stayed shut till I 'actually' achieved my goals... *sad.face*


Today, one of my friend was actually wondering how to gain weight? Mostly we only find people who are trying to lose but you will be surprised to know that gaining is actually harder! I, also have a cousin who has been trying to put on weight since forever but even after having a baby, she is just the same-petite-person (lucky, one would assume, right?). So according to the experts, the correct way to gain weight is not-to gobble-down empty calories or feed on junk food. Instead, have 5-6 meals full of healthy fats (tuna, salmon, flax, walnuts) and protein (lean meat, fish, nuts, seeds, legumes). While exercising, focus on resistance training (Power-flex classes, weight lifting). Like losing weight, gaining is also a slow process but surely can be achieved. I hope this helps my dear skinny friend! :o)


I do not think I will ever he happy with my body-image. I am aware that I am fit and healthy. And NO I do not have any psychological disorder ( ... or may be I do :P). Like my husband said today morning, in my mind I will always be 'that-fat-girl' I was while growing up. I read somewhere that the 'ideal woman' portrayed by models and celebrities is 5"5 and weight 100 pounds (45kgs). That's crazy! Anywhoo, I was doing this survey (Click here) talking about women and their body image and the verdict was "You could use a little more body love". Clearly :o)
