Story of putting on weight!
Nobody with a tendency to gain weight wants to put on extra kilos during the holidays. On the contrary, some people might have kept a secret wish under their pillow for Santa to help them in making their weight loss plan successful. Sometimes, one may find that he or she is gaining weight without increasing consumption of food or liquids and without decreasing physical activity.
Unintentional weight gain can occur for a limited period, can be continuous or can occur at a rapid pace. Unintentional periodic weight gain also includes regular fluctuations in weight. For instance, unintentional weight gain is experienced during a woman’s menstrual cycle for a limited period.
Long term unintentional weigh gain which gives a sense of happiness occurs during pregnancy. Due to increasing age, some amount of weight gain can occur due to physiological reasons at a steady, continuous pace. But oftentimes there is a sudden surge in the number of kilos put on by a person at a rapid pace. Let us look at the causes of weight gain which require your attention:
Road to Fitness: A successful weight loss journey!
The intention for planning a weight loss journey should be for achieving fitness and for better health and not for a particular slim body type. Weight loss should never be inspired by body shaming or by a negative feeling of competition with someone. After looking at picture-perfect images on social media, we get unattainable ideas of achieving the same picture-perfect image of our self. However, such an idea is neither healthy nor is practically achievable as most of these images are heavily edited and you would be surprised to know that your favourite celebrity also looks different in reality.
Healthy weight loss should always be steady and one should not intend to lose more than half or one kilogram of weight in a week. Consistency in following your plan is the most important factor for successful weight loss.

Here’s how we met this month!
Health demands attention each day. Therefore, we try our best to meet you each week so that you do not miss on your health supplements. In December, we were there on the 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd at Sunder Nursery. Getting old customers back there has become a norm. We also keep seeing new faces at our stall. Introducing our products to the new ones gives us immense pleasure.
‘To keep the body in good health is a duty. Otherwise, we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.’ These are the words of Buddha. Nature and its herbs are the best healers of the body and give strength to the body and soul.
Lack of supplementation from herbs can make you compromise on your good health. The pathway to a more sustainable future is by ensuring that each one stays in good health through natural means. One of the promises one should make to themselves and stick to it through the New Year is to maintain good health.
Mahatma Gandhi rightfully said, ‘It is health that is real wealth and not the pieces of gold and silver.’
