For home made ghee and butter, start using full cream milk. Boil the milk, leave it as it is for sometime, remove the malai and use that malai to make butter and ghee at home ) .. This way you also make skimmed milk at home. Better than milk skimmed in the machine..
Include fast carbs like fruits etc in your pre workout meal. Eat something that digests quickly to provide energy. I had sweet potato chaat before my run today. Since sweet potato is a slow/fibrous carb so, I had difficulty in running.
When we do SNs quickly then it become more of a cardio thing and when we do it slowly, holding each pose then it becomes a strengthening thing
A common mistake that an exercise enthusiast do is jump directly to workout without proper warm up and stretching.. Likewise, finish workout without proper cool down and stretching.. This later cause pain and injury.. And a lot of demotivation to workout…
howsoever boring warm up, cool down and stretching are .. do them..#fitness is in small changes )

One big myth.. you started going to the gym so you should start taking protein shakes.. we have them without knowing what they are actually composed of.
The question is aren’t their enough natural options available which are better then these supplements?… Their is good paneer, dals, sprouts, egg, fish, mushroom, soyabean, daal chawal, seeds, peanuts…
irony is we skip these natural proteins as fattening and have supplements instead… don’t we?
If you experience pain during any workout like back pain after crunches or knee pain after running then slow down and first work on strengthening the back muscles or the muscles surrounding the knee joint..

What is your first meal of the day? Best is to finish the dinner early so that we wake up with a hungry/receptive body early morning.. The best time to treat the body with something natural which is filled with goodness.. Something like a fruit, dry fruit, milk instead of tea
