Negative Meat Studies Shouldn’t Neglect the Need For Protein Foods

A European health study has thrown up some interesting results regarding meat – linking it to weight gain, but before dieticians start to champion meat-free diets, one fact needs to be clarified: protein foods such as meat are key to living a healthy life.

London’s Imperial College has reported that high protein foods hinder slimmers following the health study that included participants from 10 different European countries.

Meat consumption was found to increase weight gain in men and women and argues against the notion that high-protein diets, such as the Atkins diet, encourage weight loss.

If continued studies again show that meat does cause weight gain, it is vital that people that cut meat out of their diet are well educated in which other food types provide sufficient protein levels for a healthy diet, with protein supplements promoted as an alternative.

No junk food for Priyanka!

Talking of Bollywood’s pintucked divas and their shapely figures, here’s an actress who has managed to stick to her dimensions, despite pigging out on junk food. Priyanka Chopra calls herself a foodie and for good reason because she rarely resists good food. Calories be damned!

Even Priyanka’s illness and hospitalisation couldn’t dampen her spirits. “I don’t have the tendency to put on weight at this age. I do not diet. I love eating. I eat anything at any time. I never compromise when it comes to eating but I make sure I include a lot of greens in my diet,” Priyanka had said a few years ago. Fair enough. Human metabolism may have undergone evolutionary changes in Priyanka’s case. But now the actress has to be careful.

The latest is that nutritionists and Priyanka’s fitness instructor have strictly told her to stay off a lot of her favourite dishes (referring to food for now), to maintain her stamina.

A friend of Priyanka’s said, “Priyanka has been asked to go slow on pakodas, pastas, pizzas, pastries, burgers, chocolates and aerated drinks. She has a very gruelling shoot for Fear Factor coming up in the next few weeks.

For this show, Priyanka will have to perform stunts, which would demand a lot of energy. She is quite a perfectionist in all her work assignments and doesn’t want to be under prepared.”

Priyanka’s transformed food habits have not irked her father. When asked, Dr Ashok Chopra said, “This would in turn shed all the extra weight, if any and would tone up her body and improve her strength.”

As for resisting temptation, Priyanka’s father added, “Priyanka is not finding it difficult to resist the temptation. She knows how to say ‘No’. And the results are showing. With each passing day, she is able to walk more on the treadmill.”

Rekha flaunts her ship figure

In a ‘dare-to-bare’ act, Rekha has revealed her ship-shaped figure in the latest issue of Filmfare magazine, where she made it clear once again that no newbie actress can compete with this 55-year-old when it comes to looking sexy and classy at the same time.

Rekha dazzled in her flawless avatar where she showed off her sculpted jawbone, cleavage, shoulders, arms, waistline and legs, along with seducing eyes and pout.

It is no secret how Madam Re feels when it comes to taking care of her ‘Mind and Body Temple’. The plump South Indian teenager, who made her debut into Bollywood with ‘Sawaan Bhadon’ underwent an unbelievable makeover with a strict routine of yoga and aerobics under the tutelage of Rama Bans in the ‘80s.

However, this makeover too was not free of criticism. There was news that Re underwent surgery to get into a perfect shape.

But Rekha claims she uses yoga, a healthy diet and good sleep to keep fit. The actress, who used to visit a gym at Hotel Sea Rock, now has set up her own gymnasium inside her Bandra bunglow. She also visits a suburban spa in Mumbai regularly for meditation.

Even ace photographer Jagdish Mali, who clicked the hot bod for Filmfare, said he had to do only minor changes in the photos as Re looked too ravishing for any patch ups.

"When we shoot digitally, a little bit of touch-up here and there is necessary. I've just made minor changes to the images ... haven't tampered with her figure at all!" Mali told TOI.

"We know she's been maintaining herself well. When you're young at heart, it reflects on your face," he added.

Meanwhile, Filmfare editor Jitesh Pillaai said the photo sessions are creating waves across the country.

“Got so many lovely reactions to the latest rekha's pics @ filmfare. Her sarees, her flair, her performances, makeup techniques, truly iconic!” tweeted Pillaai.

However, he regretted: “Rekhaji an actor who's not got her due yet.”

“Would love to see her work in movies with Aparna Sen, Zoya Akhtar, Mani Ratnam, Sanjay Bhansali,” said Pillaai.
