5 Tips to Lose Weight and Look Great

1. Know your goal

Ask yourself first why you want to lose weight. Is it because you want to fit in that little black dress again or did your doctor advise you to do so? Both these circumstances require your time to check on some but the latter one should make you really serious in committing to a driven lifestyle. This journey will be fruitful but you have to develop your mindset into losing weight and feeling great.

2. Visualize

Now that your mind is ready to practice effective, you should have an inspiration. What kind of body would you like to achieve? Visualizing the body that you desire is very helpful not only in losing weight but also in achieving your other goals in life. Search the internet for that dream body or cut out a picture from a magazine and place it somewhere you will always see. Following plus a mind that is set on a goal would really make your weight loss journey go a long way!

3. Clean up your diet

If you have done the first two tips, then this third will be an easy feat for you. Since your mind is already set to being disciplined and goal-oriented towards, it is now time for you to train yourself to eat healthier. Exercise won’t do much if you still splurge on oily and fatty food every day of your life. Keep your plate enjoined grilled, steamed, or boiled. Try to prepare your own dose of healthy food so you won’t only depend on the friendly fast-food chain nearby.

4. Load up on fiber

One when it comes to food is to have a low-fat, high-fiber diet. Fruits and vegetables contain high amounts of fiber so be sure to have least 25% daily intake in your diet. It does not have a fat-burning ingredient but it has lower calories and eating it will make you feel fuller and less hungry. This delicious should also be practiced with plenty of water intake. Also, keep in mind that most fiber comes from the skin of the fruit or vegetable, so better think twice before undressing that apple or potato.

5. Keep on moving

Wherever you may be, you have no excuse for not exercising. Exercising is one of the most-avoided but is also one of the most important. It aids your weight loss journey and also gives you leaner muscles to make you and stronger. Take 30 minutes daily dedicated to physical activity.

Interpreters of Maladies – Sensuous Symbols

Jhumpa Lahiri won the Pulitzer Prize and received literary fame for her series of short stories. There are several symbols in one of her short stories, Interpreter of Maladies. The major symbols are: the strawberry necklace around Mrs. Das’ neck, which rested between her breasts, the naked intimate statutes at the temple which she admired, and the paper with Mr. Kapasi’s address, which blew out of her pocket book and into the wind.

The short story, Interpreters of Maladies, focuses on an Indian-American couple, Mr. and Mrs. Das, who are on vacation in India with their three children. They are chauffeured by an Indian taxi driver who developed an immediate affection for Mrs. Das. His imagination focused on comparing Mrs. Das with his wife in a sensual manner.

The strawberry necklace around Mrs. Das’s neck, which rested between her breasts serves as a symbol of her sensuousness. Mr. Kapasi’s infatuation for Mrs. Das started at this point. He found her irresistible. The strawberry resting between her breasts on the tightly fitted undershirt styled blouse, reminded Mr. Kapasi of the ripeness of her breasts as a symbol of her femininity. He watched her through the rear view mirror. This allowed him to daydream of an irresistible relationship with Mrs. Das, one he never had with his wife.

The naked statutes at the Sun Temple were symbols of intimacy to Mr. Kapasi and Mrs. Das. Mr. Kapasi watched her reactions to the naked statutes and their love making positions. He was pleased that she stopped every three or four paces and stared at the carved lovers and topless females. He also gazed at the topless figures as his mind wandered on Mrs. Das with intensity while he subsequently gazed with affection upon her profile. This led to his continued daydreaming about her. He saw her in a more sexually appealing way than his wife.

The slip of scrap paper with Mr. Kapasi’s name and address which was in Mrs. Das’s pocketbook signified a connection between them. He even daydreamed about having future contacts with her. However, when she revealed to him her secret of infidelity regarding her son Bobby’s birth, it changed their relationship from positive to negative. She was not pleased by his reaction, walked away, and went in search of her husband and children. When they re-entered the taxi, the paper with the address blew out of Mrs. Das’s pocketbook and into the wind. The only person who noticed the paper as it blew away was Mr. Kapasi. This served as a symbol of loss infatuation to Mr. Kapasi. The event signified the ending of their relationship.

This short story by Jhumpa is authentic, original, and enjoyable to read. I like this story because it is closely related to reality. It touched on events that could possibly occur on a daily basis between individuals in various settings. The symbols in the story provided enrichment to the text and enhanced its interpretation. It is a great story which should be read by individuals interested in understanding various cultural myths and symbolism.
