Today i am going to be bursting the most common myth that people have asked me several times: does eating carbs at night make you fat?
some people believe that our body’s metabolism becomes slow at night, and so the carbs we eat are stored as fat.
some feel, that carbs at night spikes their insulin levels which eventually stores more fat.
others believe it because they read it in an article somewhere, and even though they did not understand it entirely, the highlighted point made all the difference.
but let me tell you that this is not true. eating carbs at night will not make you fat. only thing that can make you f*t is, by eating extra calories than your body needs. losing f*t is not a cumbersome piece of a puzzle. it’s as simple as energy in has to be expelled out. calories taken in has to be spent out. if you eat too many, you gain weight. if you eat appropriately less, you lose weight.
always remember: eating carbs at 9am, or eating carbs at 9pm is one and the same thing. keep a check on the intake and burn the extras with your workouts and punch those who don't let you eat carbs at night. 😂😂😂
I was 19, when i got married to captain shafeeq ghori in 1991. it was difficult in the beginning to accept the fact that he was constantly on the move and had to leave me alone for long periods, but he sat me down and explained what it was like to be an army wife. there were no mobile phones back then. i used to spend hours by the phone unsure when he would call. we used to write letters and my husband made sure i received one letter every day for the days he was away from me. i used to write small notes and hide small surprises in his luggage.
in the years that followed, he had many high-risk postings. back then, punjab and the east were all dangerous places to be. he has been to tripura, punjab, and srinagar. he used to be gone for days but by then i had become strong and learnt to fend for myself and our children. i knew he loved the country the most and his kids and wife came a close second.
in 1999, he had a field posting in srinagar, since it was a high risk area families weren't allowed, i moved to bangalore. june 28th 2001, we spoke for the last time. he asked about our wellbeing, told that he was in the jungles for a military operation. he wanted to speak to the kids but they were running around with their cousins and there was a lot of chaos and noise. i told him to come back to his base and speak to them. i still regret that decision.
on july 1st, 2001. around 6.30 pm, a group of army officers along with their wives came home. suddenly, a lady made me sit down and told me. “major ghori is no more,” she said. i thought i heard it wrong. it had to be a mistake. she said they had been trying to reach me since morning but couldn’t as i was at my mother’s house and the phone lines were disconnected. major shafeeq ghori was martyred in a heroic gun battle with militants during operation rakshak. everything around me fell, crumbled. that day was the day i received my final letter from him.
the next day, i went to the airport to receive him for the last time.this time in a box clad in indian flag. i broke down. he would always ask me to be strong. he reminded me even on that last day we spoke, but i never imagined a day when he wouldn't be around.
