You can eat ‘Gujiya’ and still lose fat!

Do you also wish to eat “Gujiya” on Holi but are afraid that it will affect your fat loss journey, or maybe it will take you to that stage from where you started losing fat?

“Modern problems need a modern solution!” you must have heard this passage, but this is the time to execute it.

Before comprehending the logic of Gujiya or any of your favoured food, let’s understand how fat loss occurs. 

Everything is based on numbers, consider a guy who has a bodyweight of 90 kgs, consuming 2500 calories and burning less than 1000 calories, he will definitely weigh because his input vs output numbers are not matching, so this is really important to understand if that guy has to lose weight, he has to keep his output numbers greater than input, and at the same time if somebody wants to gain weight, he has to keep his input numbers greater than output.

The logic behind Gujiya and weight loss.

We hope you got an idea of how fat loss happens and now coming to Gujiya; if you are on a fat loss journey maintaining 1700 daily calories input and 2000 calories output and want to eat Gujiya, you just have to keep maintaining those daily numbers. A normal-sized Gujiya contains 200-300 calories (depends on dry fruits, sugar coating, and other things). If you are eating 1 Gujiya, you either have to maintain the intake of calories as 1700, or you have to increase the output of calories on that particular day and also understand that each food source has its own work, so if you are choosing to maintain the intake calories option, try to replace the calories of Gujiya with fat as the fat is the primary nutrition which a Gujiya contains.

With this logic, can we eat our desserts every day?

The answer could be a yes or no; it depends on what you are eating and replacing.

Each and every macro-nutrient have their own work, like protein works in muscle growth, carbohydrates provide us energy; similarly fat also has its own assigned work, occasionally replacing 200 protein calories with fat calories might work, but if you keep on doing the same, it will hamper the muscle growth. 

Apart from this, we also want you to consider one more factor, not every dessert has the same nutritional value, few of the desserts contain empty calories, and if you replace your regular fat sources with those empty calories, you won’t get any benefit.

We hope now you got the answer, so it’s a YES for Gujiya this Holi but with the proper calculation.

Happy Holi!

Marburg Virus kills two people, the first cases confirmed in Ghana.

Khushi Thapa, Mumbai Uncensored, 21st July 2022:

Ghana officially confirmed two cases of the Marburg virus, a highly contagious disease comparable to Ebola, on Sunday, after two patients who subsequently died tested positive for the virus earlier this month.

On July 10, tests carried out in Ghana revealed positive results; however, the World Health Organization stated that the cases had to be confirmed by a laboratory in Senegal.

Ghana Health Service (GHS) released a statement saying that additional testing at the Institute Pasteur in Dakar, Senegal, “has validated the results.”

Despite the fact that none of the contacts has yet shown any symptoms, GHS is taking steps to lessen the chance of the virus spreading, including isolating all of them.

The Marburg virus has just recently spread to West Africa twice. Guinea reported the region’s first incidence of the virus last year, but no other cases have been found.\

“(Ghanaian) health authorities have responded swiftly, getting a head start preparing for a possible outbreak. This is good because, without immediate and decisive action, Marburg can easily get out of hand,” said Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa.

Wimbledon 2022 Women Singles Final Highlights: Elena Rybakina defeats Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, clinches Maiden Wimbledon Title

Shobit Chandola, Mumbai Uncensored, 16th July 202:

On 9th July, 2022 the Wimbledon got its winner in the Women’s Singles with none other than Russian born Kazak, Elena Rybakina who defeated the Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur with 3-6, 6-2, 6-2. Wimbledon this year, for the first time in a while, witnessed 2 finalists seeking their maiden title. What could be termed as unpredictability is that the fan’s favourite contenders were all eliminated before. While the Record 7 Wimbledon title winner Serena Williams was shocked by H. Tan in  the 1st Round, it was Paula Badosa underperforming in the Round of 16 and  the astonishing defeat of the Former Wimbledon Champion Simona Halep in the Semifinal.That too came from the end of Elena Rybakina who vanquished Simona in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.

As could be seen in the epic thriller, the first set was won by Ons Jabeur whose drop shots and forehand made Rybakina go for many unforced errors. But post conceding the 1st set, Rybakina changed the gear for all the trailing in 1st set and ensured enough aces and volley to make it 6-2 in the 2nd set for 1-1 tie. For the 3rd set, Elena led with 2-0 but got holded by Jabeur to make it 3-2 but outshined Jabeur with a 5-2, finally breaking the latter’s serve in the decider.

Not to forget the incredible journey of Ons Jabeur so far. It was the World No 2 Ons Jabeur who became the first Arab and african women to become the Wimbledon finalist but wasn’t at her best to defeat the 17th seed Elena Rybakina who switched her nationality to Kazakhstan in 2018 (owing to the lack of funding and infrastructure for her game) before representing Russia. Just like Elena who wrote the history as the first kazakh to be claimed as winner in the Wimbledon, it could have been the same to Ons too being the first Arab and African women.Though the losing cause made the Ons emotional, it was her grit, determination and the post match interview which reflected her strong character.

In the Post Match Interview, the Introvert Champion Elena had her say on the Wimbledon title. She stated “I was super nervous before the match, during the match and I’m happy it’s finished, to be honest. Really I have never felt something like this. I want to thank the crowd for the support, it was unbelievable these two weeks,” the 23-year-old said. But also I want to congratulate Ons for a great match and everything you have achieved. I think you are an inspiration for everybody. You have an amazing game. We don’t have someone like this on tour and it is a joy to play against you. I ran so much, I don’t think I need to do fitness anymore”. With this title, Elena became the youngest player to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since 2011.
