The program was developed by General Motors for its employees and its dependants. It is tried and tested and has worked for a lot of people including my cousin and his wife.
At the end of this week, they both lost 4 kgs which is remarkable.
The program however guarantees more.
First things first, before you start it bother checking your weight and let me know the accuracy of it. I start this thing from tomorrow and let there be no cheating.
DaY 1 : All fruits except bananas. Your first day will consist of all the fruits you want. It is strongly suggested that you consume lots of melons the first day. Especially watermelon.
DaY 2 : All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the amount or type. For your complex carbohydrate, you will start day two with a large baked potato for breakfast. You may top the potato with one pat of butter.
DaY 3 : A mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity. No bananas yet. No potatoes today.
Day 4 : Bananas and milk. Today you will eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. This will be combined with the special soup which may be eaten in limited quantities.
Day 5 : Today is feast day. You will eat beef and tomatoes. Eat two 10 oz. portions of lean beef. Hamburger is OK. Combine this with six whole tomatoes. On day five you must increase your water intake.
Day 6 : Beef and vegetables. Today you may eat an unlimited amount of beef and vegetables. Eat to your hearts content.
Day 7 : Today your food intake will consist of brown rice, fruit juices and all the vegetables you care to consume.
Do remember no tea/coffee or alcohol.
You must drink 10 glasses of water each day.
One of the most inspirational stories of my life knocked my ear in one of the most unexpected ways. Now the reason I say ear is because of hearing it on the radio.
I am not a big fan of women's liberation. I never was, I don't think I would ever be. So this post definitely doesn't revolve around that.
I heard the interview of the woman who started it all. Her name is Revati Roy. The way she started it was rather stupid. Her reason wasn't a movement supporting and assuring the security of women. It was for one simple reason - she loved to drive.
One very important thing out of this that everyone knows and I still believe it to be one of the most profound statements ever made, "Do what you love for a living, and you wouldn't hate Monday mornings again!"
I am not sure if the statement goes like this or probably it's just my version.
An observation, I would look forward to a Monday morning if I loved what I did.
I have loved Monday mornings in life when I travelled in Route no. 16 cuz of the 3 stooges (Tushar, Naman and Nagendra). I have also loved Monday mornings, cuz I would see him after an entire day.
This is beside the point. The point is I still hate Mondays.
There's something definitely going wrong.
Coming back to ForShe, the woman went through a bad phase in her life. But again I am not going to elaborate on it, sometime God just gives you the determination and some great words give you inspiration. What is remarkable about her story is, there was just this thought, but there was no money, no office and no cars to begin with. But today, she has an entire training academy, a fully fledged service operating in Mumbai and now starting up in Delhi. The woman, who did not have a landline of her own, now has an entire call centre. All this in just one year. There were beautiful hurdles, but then it’s her story it’s much better from her own mouth.
Again, I don't attribute much to determination and inspiration.
But I do believe in one thing, that in life if one decides on doing something and is 100% sure of it. Most of the work is done. The best part is : there is no fear. And there is no fear, cuz you don't even know what might come in your way. It's like sitting on a roller coaster, not expecting how the ride might turn out. But once you have a mission and have set out, there are tons of people that support you. It might sound very political, but it's not. I have seen it happening, right in front of me when I set out making MAYA. It would have remained a dream, if not for the support of the people and friends.
One of the things my friend told me was...just take it one step at a time, forgetting about the titanic task ahead of you and you will be just about fine.
I am not going to ask any of you people to do that, cuz it’s not my place.
I was inspired and I am all charged to do something on my own again. However small it may be.
After all, someone once told me.... I was born to do things differently :)
Its not even been a week since I landed in Delhi....
Its been a week though since my last day in bangalore....
I would never forget those beautiful mails and those sad faces.
I would never forget those gifts...
I would never forget those last few dinners and luncheons
I would never forget the last few coffees
I would never let go of those last few memories when I had more than just tears in my eyes.
I am lost. I feel as though am away from home.... and home is where my heart is.
