This requires you to be on your weight loss commitment for quiet long. As soon as you start seeing the results, you will be surprised as well as motivated to go beyond your weight loss and adopt and a lifelong healthy attitude.

Please cut it down to as low as you can from tomorrow. Cut down tea/coffee if you are too addicted to it. It is creating havoc inside your body. 2.Lifestyle – Are you a late sleeper and late riser? You can’t imagine what this schedule of yours is doing to your metabolism. It is degrading your digestive system from inside and your looks from outside. 3.Physically active – If you are a couch potato who loves to watch tv whole day then throw that couch of yours in the street and get yourself a treadmill tomorrow. Yes it is as simple as that. Who is stopping you? You have to be physically active all day long if you want to burn those extra calories. Do daily brisk walk, Pranayam, atleast 20 surayanamaskar everyday to start seeing the results. Take break between office work to walk a little or rather just climb some stairs to get that food you ate in lunch have space and heat to digest and absorb. What’s the harm in using your washroom to do a little middle of the day squats. Do that – No one is watching you. The key is to stay physically active all day long, no matter what. 4.Eat healthy and eat on time: Not only eating healthy is important but eating at right time is equally imp too. Have an early breakfast and early dinner and have 4 small meals between breakfast and dinner. To guide you a bit, here you go: a.Breakfast (Between 8-10 a.m) – Have oats/porridge or brown bread with milk and nuts.

Which Jobs Are Most Often Associated With Back Pain?


Back pain is particularly common in adults who are of a working age. It has  been estimated by the health and safety executive (the government body responsible for safety in the work place) that between 2001 and 2002, millions of working days were lost as a result of musculoskeletal disorders

The majority of these were back pain that was caused or made worse by work. On average, each person with back pain was absent from work for an estimated 18.9 days during this 12 month period. About 13% of unemployed people cite back pain as the reason they are without a job


Back pain can arise in many work situations, but certain occupations carry a greater risk then others. These include:

·        Heavy manual labouring

·        Heavy equipment operating

·        Nursing

·        Manual packing of goods

·        Office work involving sitting at a computer station.

In general, jobs that involve heavy lifting, handling bulky loads in awkward places, handling vibrating equipment like pneumatic drills or driving long distances over rough ground, can all make back pain worse. Office jobs can also aggravate back pain. 

Spending all day sitting at a badly adjusted workstation performing a repetitive task like typing or answering the phone,can make the problem worse. A number of exercises can be performed whilst you sit at your desk, which can minimize the chances of suffering from back pain.

  • Repetitive actions 
  • Stretching, twisting,  reaching

There is still some debate on whether Chia seeds are the magical cure for weight loss.

Chia seeds contain 69 calories for every 2 tablespoons of seeds but contain 20% of recommended daily fiber intake.

This fiber (attached to the outside of the seed) when exposed to any liquid absorbs almost 9x times its own weight and each seed form its own gel ?shell? which is sticky and bulky.

It is this gel that not only ?bloats? your tummy, making it feel full but also is slow to digest, thereby resisting the urge to overeat.

The soluble fiber slows down the body?s carbs-to-sugar conversion, balancing blood sugar levels and minimizing sugar cravings.

The insoluble fiber acts as roughage and cleanses the gastrointestinal tract of waste and toxins, thereby supporting a healthy digestive system.

Consuming chia seeds contributes to your intake of healthy fats, particularly omega-3 fatty acids that recharge the body cells at a cellular level and are vital to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and keeping your appetite in check.

Being a great plant-based protein source, these seeds act as a steady energy source, helping you stay alert and away from food that you crave when sluggish.

Since Chia seeds are abundant in key vitamins and minerals, it prevents nutritional deficiencies that are the root cause for your ?sweet tooth?, and your binging on junk food.

Everyday Back Pain Causes.

It's worth knowing that you will eventually complain of back ache if you are not already whining.

It is primarily because most of us indulge in some everyday activities that are detrimental to our spine health. The good news here is that these reasons can be easily fixed. All you need is some spine tuning. Here's how:

Desk job
Are you sitting too much on your seat? Recent studies have suggested that sitting for longer hours makes you prone to various illnesses. So it is highly recommended that you stand and walk a bit every two hours or so and also engage in some static stretching exercises. If not, take a 30 minutes stroll after your lunch time.

Sleeping on your stomach
Do you have a habit of snoozing on your tummy? It's a clear give away for your back problems as it puts unnecessary pressure on your spine. When you sleep on your side or back, your spine is elongated and neutral. Also, don't use a thick pillow. The perfect-sized pillow should keep your head in line with the spine. This is not it. Your mattress should not be too hard or soft.

Not exercising your core
According to yogacharya, Shelly Khera, a strong core helps us stand difficult situations both physically and mentally. It is where all our energies are housed. And even fitness instructors in the gym have caught fancy to the word 'core, but for all the right reasons - core exercises strengthen your spine.

High heels, bulky bags
Some fashion choices that you make may be harming your back, especially high heels and heavy bags. Not only women, there are men who carry heavy laptop bags on one shoulder, which is a major cause of health issues. What's the fix? If you stand and walk a lot, do not wear heels above 2 inches and the handbag should be less than 10 pounds.
