Yes! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how beautiful you are, how wonderful your hair looks, how your skin glows. I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how tolerant a woman is, how caring she is, how good her smile is and how strong she is! Please get off the scale and do not give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the noget off the scale- live your life! You are beautiful! But yes, I strongly believe in ''Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels’’! When people tell me, they can’t afford a gym or they don't get enough time. I tell them go outside, planet earth is a gym, we are already members. Run, climb, sweat, enjoy all the natural wonders! Take care of the following: 1) Excess secretion of acids in the gastric glands of stomach is acidity. When secretion is more than usual we feel, heart burns. 2) What triggers heart burn is consumption of spicy food. So rule no.1, no spices at all. 3) No coffee. No coke. 4) Drink herbal teas. 5) Keep drinking hot water. 6) Watermelon juice on empty stomach or coconut water. 7) Eat a banana in the morning. 8) Eat cucumbers. 9) Cold glass of plain milk. 10) Early dinners. 11) Eat something every two hours. 12) No pickles, No chutney, No vinegar. 13) Boil some mint leaves in water; drink that water after every meal. 14) Sucking a clove helps. 15) Must have curd. 16) Excessive drinking and smoking causes acidity. 17) Chewing gum helps. 18) Ginger aids in digestion, either by capsules or add ginger to food. 19) Eat a lot of watermelon, green beans, pumpkins, cabbage, carrots, and spring onions. 20) 5 'S' have to be avoided: Stress, Spices, Strain, Sprite, Smoking. 21) No - Hurry, worry, curry! 22) Fats - Not a criminal. Very important. As important as carbs or proteins. Fats protect our vital organs. Brain, heart, liver are all covered/protected with a layer of fat. 23) No fasting. No feasting. This disease can get converted into cancer - so be serious. 24) Keep drinking Luke warm water. 25) Gulp saliva as much as you can. 26) Eat less salt.

Wedding preparations always sound so exciting for the bride-to-be but it’s also a big day for the groom. It’s true, men may not have to spend hours and hours at the salon unlike their counterparts but that doesn’t mean they can’t get their share of pampering. Gentlemen, on your wedding day, you're expected to look better than your best. This means biting the bullet, gritting your teeth and manning up for a little prewedding "groom"-ing. Fashionista, Fashion Designer and Styling Expert Mehul Suthar stands for you guys to help you with the Must do tips for your big day:

Upgrade Haircut - Do not experiment with a new cut on your wedding day. It may just backfire making you look goofy. Find out which style suits your face. If you’re not sure find a photo of a haircut you would like to have and take it to your barber. Lots of guys do this and you should not be embarrassed. Ensure that your hair is properly cared for. Get expert care with a pack to treat dandruff and for split ends. You can go for an upscale trim a month before your wedding day, so that even if it doesn't suit you, your hair will grow back in 30 days. Once it’s tested and approved, go for the same look a week prior to the D-day. Stubble or Shave - You may have a beard or you keep your face smooth– either way some maintenance goes into every man’s face. To achieve a smooth shave, void of dry, red and bumpy patches make sure you do the following things. Firstly, comb the hair with a fine-toothed comb and cut the hair you want to remove as short as it will go. This will make shaving a lot easier and prevent your skin from getting irritated. Then rub some preshaving oil onto your skin, baby oil is a cheap and effective option. Shave when in the shower – or just after, as warm water opens up the pores and softens your face. The next step is something that a lot of men miss out, but is really important. Take a shaving brush and use it to apply the shaving cream in a circular motion. The brush lifts hair off of the face and exfoliates skin. Choose a shaving cream that is aloe based or one that contains vitamin E. Then apply a moisturizer rather than an alcohol based aftershave. Follow each step and you’ll love the results. Facial - It’s time you care about how your skin looks for the most important day of your life. Don’t expect the photographer to clean up all your pimple marks with the photo editing software all the time. If you’ve had several skin issues like pimples, dry skin, an uneven skin tone, tanning and dark circles, then you could definitely look for suitable facials, peels and even simple home remedies to ensure your skin looks better. If you implement the daily cleansing-toning-moisturizing and occasional scrubbing routine a month before your trip down the aisle, your skin will look just as energetic and full of life as you are. And, of course, for an additional glow, go for a professional facial week before your wedding that will put all your skin problems in place.
