It's Summer time again....
What is summer? The warmest season of the year, sweat,
humidity, irritation, dehydration? Or is it a season of fruition,
fulfilment, happiness, and beauty. It is time to head to a
beach resort, time to swim, time to flaunt those sexy bikini
bodies, time to enjoy the amazing fruits in season.
It is the best time to do that diet you have been promising
yourself since the new year as this is the time when you do
not feel the hunger pangs you feel in the winter. It is the time
to wake up early and go for that outdoor run which you
cannot do in winters as you are too busy getting all too comfy
under the warm mattresses.
We are fortunate to live in a country like India which is
blessed with a very good climate that helps agriculture. With
a rich culture, heritage and now Information Technology
India has come a long way.
Fitness is an integral part of our lives and we at Gold's Gym

Three easy things a bodybuilder must do to
Prevent Heart
by Sheru Angrish
and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) have a multitude of health
benefits for the bodybuilder specifically, including
increased fat burning and improved sugar metabolism,
which are good for obvious reasons. In addition, EPA and
DHA decrease the effect of genes involved in fat storage
which helps maintain lean mass while bulking. They also
down-regulate genes involved in inflammation, which is an
important marker of long term health. In fact I also take a
baby aspirin per day to keep the damaging effects of
inflammation at bay. EPA/DHA have been shown to reduce
the risk of stroke and sudden death along with improving
blood lipid profiles by increasing the beneficial HDL
cholesterol and slightly reducing the damaging LDL
cholesterol. All of these things are great for the bodybuilder
and exercise enthusiasts and are important for them who
want to maintain maximum health and vitality.
Fish Oil is the first powerhouse in keeping the bodybuilder
safe from heart disease. Many bodybuilders that use illegal
anabolic steroids, but even standard “natural”
bodybuilders should consider supplements that will spare
them the heart disease associated with higher blood
pressure. Anabolic steroids could possibly alter lipid
profiles, so it is even more important for people using
steroids to maintain safe lipid levels and blood pressure.
Fish Oil contains two main ingredients; DHA and EPA.
These omega-3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
Fish oil is a great source for anti-inflammatory
prostaglandins and is implicated in the reduction of bowel
disorders and cancer of the bowel, which is of importance
to anyone who is concerned about health. Colon cancer is a
very common form of cancer that affects millions of people.
Fish oil causes a reduction in platelet aggregation and
stickiness which reduces arterial inflammation is good for
everyone. Finally, fish oil has been shown to reduce liver
tumor metastasis and formation, which is a good thing for
people. I take 4-6 fish oil capsules per day in divided doses
as a way to increase the positive effects of a healthy diet and
keep blood lipids in check.
Magnesium is a very important mineral that is almost lost in
our refined and cleaned water supply. This simple mineral
has the power to save lives and increase the effectiveness
of your creatine supplements and it is cheap and available
in safe over the counter supplements! So why aren't we
taking Magnesium? Low magnesium has been linked to
increased risks for sudden death, high blood pressure, type
II diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The average Indian
is not even close to the lowest RDA dose of 420mg.
Remember the RDA is the ABSOUTE MINIMUM needed to
prevent diseases, not the OPTIMAL dose. I take 1000mg of
Magnesium Oxide per day as a way to supplement my diet.
Unless you eat a diet VERY high in vegetables, you are
probably running on the low side of magnesium. Running
low on minerals is like running your car with only 1 quart of
oil in it. It might still get you around, but your chances of
failure are higher than if you don't run optimal fluid levels!
With magnesium being so inexpensive, you can't afford to
miss this crucial mineral in your supplement plan. (Oh! And
do plan on getting a bottle for your mom & dad if you want
to help them prevent heart disease and type II diabetes... I
have a bottle for mom and dad). Good magnesium intake is
associated with improved insulin sensitivity, optimal
lipoprotein levels, suppression of abnormal heart rhythms,
reduced blood pressure, headache relief, and improved
exercise capability. Magnesium can also augment your use
of creatine by helping the cells take in more creatine via
increased membrane permeability and osmotic factors.
Magnesium can also reduce lactic acid in the cells, making
it essential prior to a heavy training session if you want to
squeeze the most out of each workout. Magnesium is very
hard to get in the diet, so don't skimp on the MgO!
Blood banks are often low in this country and it is a great
idea to give blood, it could help save your life and the lives
of many people in need, but is there more benefit to giving
blood other than doing the public good? Yes, it seems that
giving blood for men could also save your life lessen the
effects of the “bodybuilding” lifestyle. Men have a higher
incidence of heart disease and congestive heart failure than
women and one of the possible causes is the higher blood
iron levels found in men. Giving blood at least once a year is
a way to reduce these harmful levels of blood iron.
Bodybuilders specifically have a tendency to have high
blood iron levels due to their consumption of meat
products as a way to get increased protein. One of the
reason for men's version of multi-vitamins is the difference
in need for iron between men and women. You will find
many of the men's formulas do not contain iron
supplementations due to the implications on heart disease.
Men and women with a genetic abnormality that have
slightly higher iron levels were found to have over two
times as much chance of developing cardiovascular
disease. Also, a Finnish study showed that men who give
blood at least once a year had an 88% reduced risk of heart
attacks. With bodybuilders relying on lean red meat to
supply increased protein, the need to give blood is even
more substantial! There is no negative to donating blood
and the potential health benefits could be amazing! So, take
advantage of your local blood drive to do yourself and your
community some good! Tell your friends and family to do
themselves a favor and donate blood at least once a year to
maintain good heart health! One last positive benefit of
giving blood is that you are screened for almost every blood
born pathogen which is a positive side benefit! This article
does not constitute medical advice. Check with your
physician before starting any supplement program.

Eat a variety of foods. A balanced diet is one
that includes all the food groups – have
foods from every color, every day!
Eat less of some foods and more of others.
The bands for meat and protein (purple) and
oils (yellow) are skinnier than the others.
That's because you need less of those kinds
of foods than you do of fruits, vegetables,
grains and dairy foods.
You also can see the bands start out wider
and get thinner as they approach the top.
That's designed to show you that not all
foods are created equal, even within a
healthy food group like fruit. This food
pyramid should go along increased activity.
For this reason, Gold's Gym India
announces Fitness for Kids for various age
groups in the financial year, 2010-11.
How Much Do I Need to Eat?
This depends on your age, whether you're a
girl or a boy, and how active you are. Kids
who are more active burn more calories, so
they need more calories.

Serving size is based on the foods
consumed. Here are Serving sizes for
common grain foods:
· 1 slice of bread
· ½ cup cooked cereal – oatmeal/ porridge
· ½ cup of rice or pasta
· 1 small chapatti
· 4–8 year olds need 4–5 servings a day
· 9–13 year old girls need 5 servings a day
· 9–13-year-old boys need 6 servings a day
And one last thing about grains: Try to make
at least half of your grain servings whole
grains, such as 100% whole-wheat bread,
brown rice and oatmeal.
Of course, you need your vegetables,
especially those dark green and orange
ones! But how much is enough? Vegetable
servings are measured in cups...
· 4–8 year olds need 1½ cups of veggies
each day
· 9–13 year old girls need 2 cups of
veggies each day
· 9–13-year old boys need 2½ cups of
veggies each day
Sweet, juicy fruits are definitely part of a
healthy diet. Here's how much you need:
· 4–8 year olds need 1–2 fruits each day
· 9–13 year olds need 2 fruits each day
Calcium builds strong bones to last a
lifetime, so you need these in your diet...
· 4–8 year olds need 2 cups of milk (or
another calcium-rich food) each day
· 9–13 year olds need 3 cups of milk (or
another calcium-rich food) each day
If you want something other than milk, you
can substitute yogurt, cheese, or calcium
fortified orange juice, just to name a few.
These foods contain iron and lots of other
important nutrients. Like grains, these
foods are measured in servings sizes:
· 30gm of meat, poultry, or fish
· ¼ cup cooked dry beans
· 1 egg
· 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
· About a small handful/10gm of nuts or
· 4– 8 year olds need 3-4 servings a day
· 9–13 year olds need 5 servings a day

What was it that made us dive into Malaysia without
welding the trip to Singapore and Thailand? Well, we had
frequented the two countries earlier and were flying into
Kuala Lumpur for our 8-year old's examination at the
international level.
Malaysian Sojourn
The air travel was comfortable and satisfying, thanks to the
hospitality, patience and attention extended by the
supportive airline crew. We stayed at the Jalan Imbi
district. Cosy, safe. Located nodally in the same block as
leading five star hotels.
Soon enough we did the mandatory round of the Petronas
Twin towers, dubbed the third tallest building(s) in the
world. Shot fabulously in many movies (cabbies regale
with tales of Don 2 now being shot in Malacca with
Shahrukh Khan (he's probably the world's most famous
Indian) the glass and steel building duo dominate the
Malaysian city scape. Fringed by a wading pool (forget
carrying swimsuits here), green ears in plenty of foliage,
racing cars on display, fountains to the rear. The stylised
advertisements for Malaysia to rake in tourists claim its
truly Asia.
Little India was a quaint little shopping nook just near
Masjid India. Laced with bustling shops on a Friday
evening, the strip offered a plethora of magnets – crocs,
flashy clothes, T-shirts and bags in the cheap imitation
zone and mouth watering street food, a.k.a. tandoori
chicken and fried pakoras! We tucked in tasty puri aloo,
dosas and gulabjamuns at Saravar Bhawan here!
MyDin chain of stores offer inexpensive shopping. The
quality is not as good as the Times Square mall (this is
cheaper than the Metrojaya chain of malls for bulk buying
of souvenirs). Chinatown forms the pulsating hub for locals
and expats alike in the night shopping zone. The local fruit,
the great hairy litchies formed mounds on street stalls.
Yummy!! Reminds you of a better-than-litchi smoothie.

Cabs are a sheer rip off in Kuala Lumpur (where aren't
they, for a tourist?). No one seems to go by the meter once
they espy that you are the tourist. Flat rates are what they
demand – take it or leave it. Of course, it is better that you
chat up with the locals at the reception, cabbies or even
cashiers at stores to get unbeatable local inputs on where
to eat and go.
Genting Highlands (located 51 km NE of KL), I think was
highly overrated. Probably a super experience if you are a
honeymooning couple with hours to spare, only for the
casino. The now-rainy, now-sunny weather played hookey
through the day we were there. Clouds floated through the
carousel and the roller coaster as we chomped on
cappuccino popcorn! Reminded us of Mussoorie and
Lonavla. We boarded the cable car to make the 3.5 km zip
up the verdant coated Highlands and were keen to attack
the theme parks. The outdoor theme park stands laced with
all possible rides. Snow World, in my opinion was the
biggest attraction inside!
Putrajaya fringes KL. The new township is the pioneer of
Green Technology cities. It even recently hosted an
international meet on green cities. Broad roads, carved out
parks, spacious schools, hospitals and apartments. A tad
isolated though! Reminds you of what Noida was some 20
years ago!
In comparison, Sunway Lagoon was teeming with tourists.
The location is a buzzing amalgam of five parks: a theme
park, wildlife interactive park, an amusement park, a water
park and an extreme park. Click away as the Burmese
python snoozes, lock into your camera the playful fight
between two sloth bears, let the ostriches tower, enjoy the
tide pool, Malaysia's first bungee jump, and massive open
slides that whoosh you through the water park while you
get a spray tattoo done and slurp on ice cream sticks.
Spells sheer fun, with the tripping music. But yes, its

famed Petronas, the Aquaria makes for a mind-boggling
array of over 5,000 marine organisms. From shoals of
piranha to the bellied starfish, massive turtles, toads and
stingrays to the blue octopus, live corals, speckled lizards,
giant desert rats, giant arapaimas and more. Children can
feed the fish (@ 5 RM per cup), snap up mementos at the
tourist trap – the souvenir shop, walk through the
mesmerising 90 metre long underwater tunnel to wave at
the scuba diver feeding the marina and enjoy the
movement of fish above their heads. Their cylindrical
aquarium, about 20 ft high, packed with swirling gilled
creatures looks surreal. Few know that the Aquaria is
accessible through the underground interlink from Tower
Records in Suria KLCC. In effect, when you are done with
the Petronas, you can walk down in two minutes to the
oceanarium. Their Jewels of the Jungle section is strapped
with a stellar collection of reptiles including the anaconda,
the green snakes and tarantulas.
Wonders of the world or no. We choose to believe that
Penang and Langkawi probably would have formed the
truly Asia bit!
Unless you like the local food served up ghetto style, you
won't enjoy Jalan Utor with its hanging meats. We sampled
the best local food and curries at the swanky Pavilion Mall
– which makes the Palladium mall in Mumbai resemble a
tiny dot! Multiple entrances, international brands, a
pulsating food court, you get it all here. Luckily our trip
was timed during the celebrations of the Chinese New Year,
the year of the Rabbit, on 3rd Feb. The entire city was
streaked with scarlet lanterns, winking lights, huge artificial
flowers, mini tangerine shrubs (a symbol of luck) and
We saved the best for last. Hours before flying out of KL,
we made a quick visit to the Aquaria KLCC...

What's keeping you busy these days?
I'm shooting for Force with John
Abraham. It is the remake of Kakha
Kakha, a film that did really well down
south. Nishikant Kamat is directing it.
Apart from that, I am shooting for a
few South films as well.
What are your Upcoming releases?
There's Force that comes out
somewhere in the middle of this year.
Also, It' My Life with Harman Baweja
releases this year.
You've got a fab figure. Please share
with us your diet regimen, from morn
to night.
Since I've been an athlete in school and
through my college days, I have to
thank sports for making my body the
way it is and also for regulating my
metabolism. I'm not into dieting and
fad diets at all. I'm quite the foodie but
I choose to eat healthy – home-cooked
food most of the time. I usually have a
king-size breakfast – egg white
sandwiches or stuffed omelettes and
toast. I'm big on fruits and juices. I
tend to have my meals in small
portions. Lunch is either grilled chicken
or grilled fish and a side of salads. And
dinner is chicken or fish gravy with
some veggies. I love home-made food
and end up having home-cooked meals
Everything you ever
wanted to know about
Photographer: Farrokh Chothia
From being a state level athlete and a national level player, to a model and then a film
star - she has come a long way. Starting off with the south film industry and a Filmfare
Award for Best Actress under her belt, she entered the Hindi film industry with a bang.
Let's meet the sweet and cute Genelia, the girl we now know as 'Meow' from Jaane Tu…

often. I drink a lot of water through the
day and I'm quite the juice and
smoothie addict. I also tend to munch
on a lot of nuts and dry fruits.
When you cheat on your diet, you...
Since I don't follow a strict diet, the
question of cheating never really arises.
But there are times when I get these
massive cravings for dessert that I
don't ignore at all and head for the
indulge route!
How do you make up for it?
I don't over-eat and stick to small
portions just to satisfy my craving for
that moment. Every time I have a break
in my shoot schedule, I go for long
walks and make it a point to sprint as
well. That just leaves me feeling healthy
and refreshed.
What's your favoured sport for
exercising and staying fit?
I would strongly recommend football
as I played it in school as well as
college. It works out the entire body
and the pre and post game work-outs
are perfect for keeping fit. I also love
dancercise of any sort. I'm not too fond
of working out in the gym but very
recently, I have started hitting the gym
to make up for all the times when I've
been caught-up in gruellingly long
shoot schedules.
Favoured holiday spot in the world?
Australia and anywhere in Europe.
Treasured souvenir?
I have this fixation for collecting snow
globes and refrigerator magnets from
most of the places I visit.
Where are you headed next?
I haven't really thought about it but
since I haven't gone on a holiday for a
really long time, I'm going to take time
to figure and plan out an amazing trip.
Pearl of wisdom for aspiring
Never compromise on what you believe
in. Put your best smile on every single
day. Work hard but also be able t.o
enjoy whatever you do. And most
importantly, never sell yourself short.
What is your biggest learning so far?
You always know and have heard from
so many people that life is full of ups
and downs. It's only when you face
them yourself, that you realise their
value. The ups make you live in the
present and enjoy your successes and
the downs teach you how to live and
look forward to the future

Dear Shrinivas,
I have been a member of Gold's Gym Nepean Sea Road for more than 3 years but am now leaving as I am relocating to Hong Kong.
I wanted to give you some feedback and share my experience. Before coming to India in 2007, I was a member of many gyms in London. I never
gained any benefit from going to those gyms! When I joined Gold's Gym Nepean Sea Road, one of your trainers (Aditi Deshpande) approached me and
offered me personal training. I did not think it would make any difference but she insisted that it would, so I agreed.
Aditi was BRILLIANT!!! She was completely focused and 100% determined to show me what a difference PT can make.
Within 6-9 months,
I went from size 34" waist to 30" and my body fat % fell from 20% to below 10%. She has completely changed my life! I
feel happier, healthier, more confident (proud of my body for the first time in my life) and I feel that I have more energy every

Gold's Gym Nepean Sea Road is by far the BEST gym I have ever been to. All staff members are AMAZING. I took PT with

Games were played like Musical Chairs, Antakshiri, Paper Dance & Quizes
Gold's Gym Nepean Sea Road is like an extended family. The trainers genuinely care about their clients and they have this
amazing ability to keep clients motivated and ensure that workouts are effective and fun. I never thought that when I leave
India, the thing I will will miss most is Gold's Gym!
