    18: The Importance of Self-Care

    18: The Importance of Self-Care

    I think it’s safe to say most of us were hoping 2020 was better than 2019. But just over a month into 2020, many people have already felt that stress levels, both physical and mental have gone up.
    And the first thing that goes for a toss when life gets overwhelming, is your self-care routine. Diets go out the window, exercise routines are ignored and we often stop the steps we took to make sure we were feeling and doing fine.
    But self-care is essential to a healthier state of mind, a better mood, improved energy and overall wellness.
    On this podcast we learn all about how to ensure you self-care and different approaches to self-care.

    17: Mental Health: How Anti-CAA Protests Have Affected Our Mental Health – And What Can You Do?

    17: Mental Health: How Anti-CAA Protests Have Affected Our Mental Health – And What Can You Do?

    On Vishnu Ki Secret Life, we usually talk about fun, light topics with a little bit of knowledge you can take for your own daily life.
    Today we're talking about something a little serious - Mental health. Specifically how people's mental health has been affected by the CAA protests and anti-NRC protests, going on in India right now. The CAA protests have had a visible impact across the country, with people mobilising in large numbers to protest peacefully. Protests have turned violent in many parts of the country, with police firing, using tear gas and lathi charges against protesters.
    But while the political and social unrest continues, people’s mental health has taken a turn for the worse.
    We spoke to people who have regularly attended the CAA protests, people who’ve been following the protests closely, as well as psychologists and therapists volunteering support for people in distress during the protests.
    So today we explain how and why your mental health suffers at times like this, and how you can take care of yourself.

    15: Calories 101: The Last Guide to Calorie Counting You’ll Ever Need

    15: Calories 101: The Last Guide to Calorie Counting You’ll Ever Need

    What is a calorie? Why do calories matter? Are all calories the same? And can you stay healthy if you just count calories and work out regularly?
    Today we’ll answer all these questions and more.
    We have three guests with us today – clinical nutritionist Rupali Datta, 23-year-old Abhishek Sarin, who works as a constultant in Delhi, 22-year-old Udayan Sinha, who’s a journalist. Both Abhishek and Udayan have lost approximately 20 kilos each.
    And this is everything you need to know about calories.
    There’s one group of nutritionists who swear by calorie counting and its effectiveness for weight loss, weight gain, or maintenance. Then there’s another group that says calorie counting is the biggest farce of the 21st century.
    Which group is right? We answer every single question you might have about calories on this podcast.

    14: How to Get Back on Track With Your Weight Loss Plan, With Nutritionist Kavita Devgan!

    14: How to Get Back on Track With Your Weight Loss Plan, With Nutritionist Kavita Devgan!

    ......And we're back!
    This is Episode 1 of Season 2 of Vishnu Ki Secret Life, the show where you learn something new, through my own experiments, and with the help of experts and others who’ll be joining me. Today we’re talking about how to get back on track when you either stop a diet or fail on the way to your goal!
    Stop me if you’ve heard this story before. The festivals are here, you’ve had a few weeks of eating good rich food, mithai, cake, and other delicious things…. And suddenly your clothes are just a little tighter!
    Despite everything on Season 1 of Vishnu Ki Secret Life (https://www.thequint.com/collection/vishnu-ki-secret-life) , despite knowing all the ways and science behind it, I defaulted on my health this year. I ignored all the lessons I’d learned and put on like 10-12 kilos. And then I was sad.
    So, I thought, let’s take a step back from my own advice, and speak to a nutritionist and an expert in the field. And that’s our first guest on this episode, Kavita Devgan.
    She’s a nutritionist and weight management consultant as well as the author of ‘Don't Diet! 50 Habits Of Thin People’ and ‘Ultimate Grandmother Hacks’.
    I also spoke to my brother Vivek, who recently got back to being healthy, after steadily gaining weight for the most of the last two years. Growing up we’ve both been overweight or obese for large parts of our life.
    So, today, Kavita, Vivek and I will tell you different methods to get back into a healthy routine IF you’ve wandered off the path and found your clothes tighter than usual.

    13: Sex: What to Eat, How to Sleep & How to Exercise Your Way to Great Sex!

    13: Sex: What to Eat, How to Sleep & How to Exercise Your Way to Great Sex!

    Let’s talk sex. How can you improve your sex drive?
    There’s a ton of research proving the connection between what you eat and what goes on in your bedroom.
    But what else can affect your sex drive, positively or negatively? And how can you get more bang for your buck, quite literally.
    A low sex drive can be tough to deal with. It can lead to decreased interest in sex, friction in relationships, arguments, dissatisfaction, frustration.
    I’ve personally experienced what can happen when someone loses their sex drive when they’re in a relationship. It leads to a lot of repressed needs, frustration with your partner and anger.
    So listen to these tips and increase your sex drive with food, exercise, supplements, and other good health practices.
