Crash Diet V/s Health Diet

"Hey Shalini, I haven't seen you in office for a while now....everything okay?"- I had to ask this. Infact the entire office has been discussing about this since the last couple of weeks. Shalini had resorted to this apparently fruitful crash diet course but then it was evident that the aftermath wasn't as remunerative as expected. The body mass index had gone for a toss within one month of this peremptory diet chart. She looking rather flimsy, decrepit...perhaps fragile too.
"Yeah dude, this crash dieting thing didn't work it seems. I have been a passionate foodie before somebody recommended this crash course..and now I'm really struggling. Infact, it has taken a toll on my daily mood weather update is gloomy almost all the time now"- Shalini seemed to be rather concerned over this failed experiment. This was so unlike her...she's been a rather bright and chirpy team-member over the last couple of years. This sudden transformation was indeed alarming.
"Apparently I did lose weight in the first few days, but I don't know why or how I recovered 'mass' rather quickly after that. I recently got to know that I wasn't shredding fat at all, it was the ingrained glycogen that was taking a toll. The body nutrient level was also set on an alarming level since I had stopped taking food containing those essential supplements...the idea of losing weight at a rapid pace had done me in, I lost the plot then and there itself...a sustained regular weight loss procedure would have been the right way to go about it. Now, even the doctor is livid with me, my BP levels have fallen to appalling levels after this failed exercise...he has recommended me to get back to normal diet without any delay to avoid further decay."- She recited. It was pretty much evident that something was eating her from within...she has always been a soft-spoken person, she seemed rather restless this time around.
"I could actually relate to this Shalini"- I turned around in surprise on hearing this...our lead office admin had risen from her chair and slowly walked up to the scene. She is considered as a fitness expert due to her immense knowledge in this field and she does share those frequent health-tips with us. "Even I had a very similar experience during the earlier half of my career as a model...I did try my luck with crash dieting and failed miserably. Infact, the crash dieting course can actually drag you straight to the ICU because this in effect, affects the heart, liver and the kidney is phases. You should perhaps a regular healthy diet chart, avoid junk food, eat in bits...not in gulps, take breaks while working continuously on the laptop and of course, if possible join Yoga classes. This so called contemporary trend of crash diet kills you slowly...I say, it's even worse than smoking."- Her voice resounded through the cubicle. So true those words.
"And you of course have the good old proven solution- The ritzy Honey Diet that absolutely strikes a balance. We all know the benefits of honey don't we?" - And, always, it was boss' turn to sermonize those pearls of wisdom; this time, he was right on the money though. Dabur Honey has been a traditionally used formula for ages now, my friend, it is your in-house dietitian.
