Eating healthy amount of protein everyday is expensive as per Indian standards

But the money you save now by eating unhealthy food is the money you pay to the hospitals in the future

Protein 101 - The myths, the mental blocks and the protein basics

~ Thread 🧵~ Myth : High Protein damages your kidneys

When you say that protein damages your kidneys, you are saying that

All your ancestors who only ate meat before the invention of agriculture died of kidney failures

Which obviously seems ridiculous

Imagine you are living in the stone age

Nature demands more from you physically

You need to hunt for food, carry big boulders to build house

Ofcourse, make ladies wring their panties out on seeing you

You need to be strong

Here's how you workout in your cave

Home workouts👇 Jokes apart, I am assuming that you have few dumbbells and a pullup bar to workout

1. Pushups - 3 x AMAP ( sets x reps)
2. Hindu pushups - 3 x AMAP
3. Decline pushups - 3 x AMAP
4. Dips - 4 x AMAP

Find parallel dip bars at any children's park

AMAP - As many as possible

How I am here
Why I am here

This is my story

It was December 2019

I was attending my cousin's marriage

I was overweight at 105kg ~ 231 lbs

One of my cousins commented,

"You have become too fat. There is no way you can become fit again. You are done" I challenged him that day that I will become slim in an year

I lost 45 pounds in 8 months

Then what?

It ain't to prove anything

Though my cousin's comment was a trigger, my motivation is much deeper

The primary concern is my health considering my family's health history

Extensors are on the other side

Overweight dude joins the gym

Trainer puts him on a treadmill

The rationale is to lose weight first and then build muscle

Our fat dude works hard on treadmill and elliptical

Most give up after few days

But our determined fat dude endures this torture

3 months later.... Our fat dude becomes skinny fat

Metabolism wrecked

Zero muscle development

Zero knowledge on how to train

But our knowledgeable trainer boasts that his client lost 15kg in 3 months and gets new clients

This is the story of most Indian gyms
