Prashant Sawant is a well-versed name in the fitness and training sector. But no one expected Prashant to do well in life, leave alone make a name for himself. Growing up in a 10 ft-by-10 ft room in a Dahisar chawl along with nine others in his joint family, career planning or guidance were concepts alien to Prashant and his two brothers. Since childhood, he was considered as an ‘average’ student by family and tutors. His father worked in a small, machine parts workshop and expected his sons to do the same. Little did he know that Prashant was soon to change the traditional norms.

After his standard 10, Prashant was enrolled in a nearby Goregaon college but soon dropped out. His father then enrolled him in Industrial Institute Training(ITI) in Borivali. Incidentally, Prashant passed with distinction in the course and attributed the discipline in his life to the course. It was during this phase that Prashant got affined towards physical fitness and joined a local Gymnasium.

What started as an experience became his passion. Due to good physique, he was offered a part-time job as a fitness trainer in another gym, though on a meager salary. Prashant decided to take the risk and against the objection of his father, he took the job. Prashant reasoned that he would change his occupation later if he was not paid well.

Due to the posh locality of the gym, Prashant got acquainted with several A-listers of Image result for prashant sawantshowbiz. The exposure that he got in the Bandra gym convinced him about the prospects in the field of fitness and to master the skills in the field he did a three-month course in fitness from the LM Fitness Academy in Bandra. He started to train a handful of celebrities and soon he met his most high profiled trainee- Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh Khan would take Prashant to his film shoots as a personal trainer. Prashant himself was very instrumental in helping Shah Rukh Khan achieve his toned physique for Om Shanti Om.


Prashant maintains a very strict diet for himself. He believes until a person is disciplined with his diet, maintaining a fit body is tough. Prashant starts his day at 7:30 am with black coffee followed by a protein shake. After that, he goes to his regular training sessions in his gym. His breakfast usually consists of omelette made of egg white and a slice of brown bread. Other than that, he sometimes has an egg and oats pancake without any sugar. Breakfast is followed by another cup of black coffee, which is also his favourite beverage.

Lunch is usually followed at 2 pm and depending on the day, either of vegetarian or nonvegetarian is cooked. It would usually consist of veg or cottage cheese sandwich and on other days it would be a chicken sandwich with brown bread. Prashant who works out in the evening as well consumes boiled sweet potato and protein shake as a snack.

Lastly, he eats his dinner by 9:30 pm. Dinner usually consists of cottage cheese salad. On the days when he eats non-veg, his dinner usually consists of grilled chicken or chicken sandwich. After dinner, he forbids his indulgence in other activities and prefers a good night’s sleep as he believes sleep is as much important as physical training.

Prashant Sawant has shown that with proper dedication, one can achieve immeasurable heights in their field of work. Nobody expected Prashant to do well in life, but here he is, trading his skills among the most celebrated personalities. When asked what does it takes to succeed as a trainer Prashant said “ Patience, talent and hard work”.

Javed Jaffrey was the pioneer of Indian comedy during the 90s. Son of famous comedian Jagdeep, Javed Jaffrey carries his father’s tradition of humour with his comedic style. Javed Jaffrey has added numerous feathers to his cap, be it acting, dancing, singing, emcee among others. In the 1990s, when channel [V] was at its peak, Javed Jaffrey took it as a platform to showcase his comic skills, amidst receiving huge appreciation from the fans and thus garnering a huge fan following.

He made his acting debut in the year 1985 with a negative role in the movie Meri Jung. Javed Jaffrey was also a huge star in the television industry. It was he who started and judged India’s first dancing reality show Boogie Woogie. Currently, it holds the record as one of the longest-running shows. Apart from these, Javed Jaffrey is also known for his role in the animation dubbing scene. He dubbed Mickey Mouse, Goofy and others in Hindi for Disney. He even scripted the Hindi version of Disney’s Jungle Book 2 and The Incredibles. Also as a child, we grew up hearing his commentary on the show Takeshi Castle. One could never stop laughing at the amazing reaction he delivered to the contestant’s performance.

Another Bollywood role Javed Jaffrey is known for is his portrayal of the character Manav in the film Dhamal. Javed Jaffrey impressed everyone with his comic timing and child portrayal of an adult. The film went on to be a success at the Box Office with Jaffrey receiving numerous praise for his rendering performance

Recently Javed Jaffrey shared a photo of his on Twitter which shows that he has developed a new hobby. His latest hobby is now lifting weights. Javed Jaffrey could be seen with an extremely fit body and he credited his physique to a 4-month of intense performance and intense diet. He was extremely appreciated over the internet and his transformation is truly mentioned worthy.

A four-month timeline may feel tedious but in reality, it is a very short span of time. To lose more pounds in four-month requires that the burning rate of calories is higher than the intake rate. The main factor in such a diet is to lead a healthy lifestyle. Also before stating an extensive diet, consultation with a doctor is a must. The doctor can recommend an improved diet measures to be taken during these 4-5 months.

One cannot stay fit until their diet plan does not meet the requirements of the body. In case of a four-month plan, managing and maintaining the diet is one the biggest challenges. One should start the day with two omelettes loaded with vegetables, be it spinach or kale. Another crucial factor is the consumption of protein during each meal. Food that keeps the blood sugar level down should also be consumed such as pear, pineapple, and grapefruit.

When going for an excessive weight loss goal, the calorie burning rate should be increased through activity. Getting more active makes it easier to create that 1,400-calorie gap we need for weight loss without getting deprived of essential nutrition. Creating a varied cardio schedule that alternates longer, moderate-intensity exercise, like a 60-minute workout on the elliptical, with shorter interval workouts that increase the metabolism. Strength training is especially important when you’re trying to lose weight fast. With rapid weight loss, you’ll tend to lose muscle as well as fat, and weightlifting can minimize our muscle loss.

Javed Jaffrey’s dedication shows that age is never a bar for anyone to remain fit. Being 54
himself, Javed Jaffrey was able to attain so much in just 4 months. His story is really an
inspiration for all of us. All we need is dedication and discipline in our lives, the rest will follow its way through. Javed Jaffrey has been a master of all trades and his recent indulgence shows the benefits of staying fit in today’s time. Maintaining a six or eight packs or completely visiting the gym should not be the lone purpose. Instead, all we can do is maintain a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle. Kudos to Javed Jaffrey for breaking the norms related to age and may he provide more such motivation for us.

Fitness for corporate life

Get up, rush, get ready, grind , eat , sleep and repeat. Seems like an endless cycle, doesn’t it? Well it’s important too. In an era of 20 year aged billionaires , there is an enormous pressure on every working individual to be successful. But our health does take a hit amidst all this madness. We keep wishing for washboard abs, that perfect jawline , toned arms and waist. However, our aims at achieving that becomes futile. So what can we do?
Here’s some ideas of exercising that require barely 20 or 30 minutes of your schedule, and can steer your health and fitness life to a more regulated area:
Power Yoga- means moving dynamically (and continuously) with your breath for a heating, full-body workout. There are two core principles of power yoga—breath-based movement and flowing between the poses—and made the flows simpler and safer than traditional chaturanga vinyasa taught in many studios. The workout is still heating and meditative, but accessible to all levels. Some effective yoga poses are: dolphin pose, downwards facing dog pose, eagle poss , easy pose.images (5)

Swimming- Swimming is usually not considered as much an choice of exercise than means of relaxation. But swimming is actually a better option for weight reductions than a lot of other sports. If you swim for at least 20 minutes straight, keeping up a constant rhythm and speed, it is an aerobic exercise, which helps improve general fitness, stimulates the metabolism and burns fat.The fact that it’s an aerobic exercise also means it improves cardiopulmonary capacity, while the effort needed to overcome water resistance tones muscles.

Skipping- Jump-rope involves almost every muscle in your body. The more muscle work during an exercise, the more calorie you burn, and you can play with the intensity too. If you have a lack of time, Do high intensity intervals e.g. 30 seconds fast skipping, 10 seconds slow skipping or rest, 6 times. You can try the Tabata protocol, which means 8 rounds of 20 seconds exercising, 10 seconds rest. E.g. 20 sec double-unders, 10 sec slow singles or rest. You can add not only skipping variations but burpees, wallclimbers, push ups, pull ups, etc to your skipping workout.

Pilates: Pilates can be the best workout for people wanting to remain in shape. You could take out the heels and get onto the mat near you desk and try 8-10 minute sessions of curls, leg circles, leg stretches, side bends and the plank. Also use your abs to lift your legs overhead till they touch the ground and then and bring them back to the start. It’s benefit is that it strengthens the core and busts tummy flab.

We have to remember that as much as these exercises count, it is necessary that we focus on our diet as well. If we stick to these exercises religiously, rest assured, that perfect jawline, toned arms and legs and flat tummy is yours.
So what are we waiting for? GET, SET, GO!

10 ways to lose weight naturally


Blog By: Kartikeya Chaturvedi

The taste of India they say is finger licking food! But what they do not say is that losing weight is even a bigger task than gulping what might not be so good for your weight and health. America has been a victim of obesity and is fighting obesity since a long time. Ever since the multinational culture has invaded India’s domestic markets, the trend of FAST-FOOD has emerged, and continues to woo both,the current an older generation today in the fast growing demography. India cannot be compared with America’s obesity rate but certainly our country is moving towards the phase where health hazards are potentially going to trouble us. Excessive weight becomes a reason for heart problems and high blood pressure which also means that keeping the weight under check is so important. Different ways to lose weight are discussed, where different ideas of loosing weight pop up. Some of the ways which today’s youth is following and believes in is by hitting the gym and taking supplements. Some go for surgery. Such practices are not only difficult to go through but also very dangerous to health. If one suddenly stops going to the gym or is irregular, his/her body might react very badly to the change and cause problems. Similarly, supplements and surgeries come with their own side effects. So what is the mantra to keep our weight under check? Can this be done naturally?

Lets find out :

Here are 11 ways through which you can lose weight naturally

  1. Avoid Salt

    Salt is responsible for retention of water within the large intestine. Further, salt tends to keep our blood pressure high, making us more prone to sweating. These factors raise our thirst and the tendency to consume beverages, including teas and colas, which contain sugar

  2. Use Water for weight loss

    Try to drink water every time you get hungry or you are about to have a meal, i.e. just before a major meal like a lunch or dinner. This is a simple and effective way of instantly quenching your hunger to a certain extent. More water also raises the metabolic rate or the rate at which the body uses calories, meaning you are losing more calories per hour.

  3. Fibre-Advantage

    Try to include more fiber in your diet. This should include soluble and insoluble fiber for ensuring that the digested food in your intestines absorbs more water. This in turn ensures that the feeling of being full is achieved quicker. Insoluble fiber is found in leafy salads that also help you limit your food intake naturally. This is because the raw state of most salad ingredients means that you need to chew a lot more. The extra chewing and salivating that accompanies it helps to control the hunger pangs for a few hours.

  4. Keep the snacking habit under check

    Snacking is perhaps the biggest sin a dieter can commit. To ensure that you stay away from the urge to bite into a chocolate or cookie, keep your mouth busy with sugar-free chewing gum. Try to sip iced or hot herbal teas prepared with minimal amount of sugar throughout the day. These are low cal aids that help to establish the feeling of feeding yourself without consuming too many calories, preventing the urge to snack.

  5. Exercise easily

    You don’t need to take upon heavy gym routines to exercise your problem areas. For instance, climbing up and down the stairs is one of the easiest, most accessible types of cardiovascular exercise that works-out your hips, legs and thighs beautifully. Combine this with undemanding calorie-burners like brisk walks, walking to the nearby market, walking when talking on your mobile and taking upon more household chores.

  6. Know your food

    You need to be more alert when picking up packaged food items. Remember that non-saturated fats and essential fatty acids are the good kind of fats that your body needs for its basic functions. Food items bearing labels of low-fat or low-sugar might not necessarily contain lesser calories. Instead, try to make smarter substitutions. For instance, you can choose egg-less baked items and juices without sugar.

  7. Friends with Whole Grains

    Try to eat a larger concentration of foods made from whole grains (rotis, whole wheat breads, cookies and oatmeal) rather than refined or processed foods. Whole grains are more complex for the body to metabolize, taking a longer digestion route. This keeps the body busy for a longer period, ensuring that energy is released throughout the day. This helps to decrease the frequency and intensity of hunger pangs, particularly the sugar cravings.

  8. Psychological Preparedness

    Don’t be shy about your weight loss goals. In fact, use the people around you to your advantage. Announce it amongst your friends and family that they should thwart you every time you are headed for a bit piece of creamy cake or a cheese-loaded pizza.

  9. Precautions you shouldn’t ignore

    Maintaining your body frame is vital at the time of losing weight. Weight loss often causes loss of vital protein, weakening the muscles that are necessary to maintain the elasticity of our tissues. To ensure that you don’t lose too much of your lean muscle mass, ensure you consume egg whites on a daily basis. Avoid the yolk since it contains a high amount of cholesterol.

  10. Controlling Calorie Intake

    Make a diet, and start measuring the calories you take in for everyday. This will really give you an idea of what and how you are eating and where you should cut down the intake to help you reduce weight. There are various apps available on the app stores for feeding in and measuring the calorie intakes. Start the calculations today and see the difference in weeks.
