Marriage and the Road to Prosperity - In this Case WEIGHT GAIN

I got married exactly Seven Days ago. Being a biochemist I know that hormones govern the Weight gain and the Weight loss issue. But I forgot that I was not a expert in Controlling your appetite. Its really Strange. I am eating more frequently and getting hungrier as the clock ticks. If you are married and been there let me know your views or comments. My wife is screaming at me because as I am eating and I am feeding her too.

Yeah! I know, people say its the Sex!! More of it means more hunger. Trust me its not the sex. So is it the Happiness, closeness, Irritations or the entire gamut of human emotions or what they calls as STROKES. Either Way Hagen Das, After Wights, Bananas fried in butter, sugar and hearshey chocolate syrup are all sinful to the core. I am am LOVING IT.

So what does one do about it?

THe Nutritionist is at a loss for ideas to prevent himself from pigging out. And to top it off too, I am not hitting the gym....

I feel Married.

Got to run, Lunch is around the corner. Sorry I was away for the whole month. Getting married is not easy. Will be back this week on what to eat when your really really in Hunger mode and marriage mode.

May the Qua be with you.

Breaking the LIMCA record was not easy!

Dinaz Vervatwala is a woman of steel. She went on to break her own record on Sunday of Non-stop Aerobics for 16 hours.

Dinaz and myself have been professional acquaintances for the last five years. I helped her with Sania Nehwal when we were trying to enhance her game.

About a month ago Dinaz called me up and said " RYAN I WANT TO BREAK THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORD". The first thought through my head was performance nutrition and how I would be able to balance the rigorous of subjecting the human body to 26 hours of continuous exercise.

I then went to the drawing table and pulled out every BIOCHEMISTRY, and Exercise Physiology book to start the arduous task of planning her diet and supplements for this event.

Good news is that she broke the record.

Bad news is that I now have to go through two more events, 20 hours of non-stop in December and 26 hours for the world record in January. Its BAD coz you don't sleep for two days and you have to be on call through the event to make sure that your athlete does not collapse. This is the ULTRA endurance race and I have to make sure she reaches her goal
