Product Review: My Fit Fuel Whey Protein 80


Indian diets are mostly a mixture of carbs and fats with a pinch of protein, comparatively. The body requires a balanced dosage of nutrients, especially protein to repair the broken tissues and to make the enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Proteins are the key to a stronger body.

My Fit Fuel Whey Protein 80 is a whey protein concentrate. Whey protein comes from cow's milk. It has a high nutritional value, is a rich source of the body's essential amino acids, and is efficiently digested and absorbed.

Packaging: The packaging was sturdy. The pack is resealable. That saves the trouble of storing it otherwise.

Taste and Mixability: It is a little sweet for my taste because I take it with water, but if you choose to take it with milk, it might taste better. It mixes seamlessly, and no lumps are formed. The shaker is quite useful. Put one scoop of powder with 300 ml of water and shake it for 15-20 seconds. The texture is excellent.

Benefits:  The first question that'll cross your mind, why should I take it? Simple, here's why:

  • If you're looking to build muscles, whey protein promotes muscle growth when coupled with workouts and strength training.
  • If you're looking to lose weight, whey protein suppresses appetite because it's a highly satiating nutrient, which helps in reducing and controlling your hunger pangs and that's the reason I use it for.
  • It is a great supplement for growth, used by several mothers as a breakfast drink for their kids as it boosts metabolism and repairs the muscles that break in our day to day activities.
  • It also helps in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
  • It boosts metabolism that increases the fat-burning process helping an individual look toned and fit.

Pricing: As compared to several nutrient brands available in the market, MFF is quite affordable because they ship directly, eliminating the middleman. Moreover, it is an Indian brand, which eliminates the cost of shipping and transportation included in the price of supplements from international brands.

Personal Opinion: When it comes to eating something healthy, the biggest problem we face is the taste. Whey Protein is a popular dietary supplement and a useful addition to a weight loss diet. With MFF, the taste gets taken care of as offers flavored as well as unflavored whey. I found the quality quite good and it does curb hunger, that I can assure you. I take it after my morning game of Basketball or a long walk. One thing to remember is to not overdo the dosage or to take it with milk which will lead to weight gain. Why I chose MFF? I support Make in India, and of course, the good reviews it already has.

Whey Protein is not just a convenient way to boost your protein intake, but it has some powerful health benefits as well. - Authority Nutrition

Book Review- 'Motions and Moments: More Essays on Tokyo' By Michael Pronko


Book Review- Motions and Moments: More Essays on Tokyo

~Tokyo is a workout.~


Author: Michael Pronko
Publisher: Raked Gravel Press
Price(Kindle Version): $2.83
/ ₹201
Genre: Non-Fiction
Rating: 4/5 
ISBN-  9781942410119


I'm not particularly a fan of the non-fiction genre but I don't know what made me do it, I sampled this book and I don't regret my decision of buying it eventually. Owing to my love of Manga and Anime, Japanese culture is a fascination to me and this fascination was one of the large contributing factors that made me read this book. Here's my review of Motions and Moments: More Essays on Tokyo by Michael Pronko:

Quick Blurb from the book-
Motions and Moments is the third book by Michael Pronko on the fluid feel and vibrant confusions of Tokyo life. These 42 new essays burrow into the unique intensities that suffuse the city and ponder what they mean to its millions of inhabitants. 
Based on Pronko's 18 years living, teaching and writing in Tokyo, these essays on how Tokyoites work, dress, commute, eat and sleep are steeped in insights into the city's odd structures, intricate pleasures and engaging undertow. 
Included are essays on living to size and loving the crowd, on Tokyo's dizzying uncertainties and daily satisfactions, and on the 2011 earthquake. As in his first two books, this collection captures the ceaseless flow and passing flashes of life in biggest city in the world with gentle humor and rich detail.

Theme- The author takes the reader on an armchair visit to Tokyo with his eloquent and vivid essays describing the cultural and social practices that take place in Tokyo along with the everyday life of a Tokyoite. Although the author has been living in Tokyo for 18 years, he projects his view of Tokyo as that of an outsider in his essays. The book is essentially a love letter to Tokyo by the author.

From the intricacies of the city's structure to the daily rush for the commute, the essays create a brief sketch of a day in Tokyo. From the picture the author paints, Tokyo is a giving, yet a closed city. Onigiri (rice balls) is their favorite snack and their obsession with English slogan t-shirts is ever increasing. Tokyoites are skilled multitaskers that excel in fitting things in and take pleasure in creating and filling forms.

The author often compares the life in Tokyo with that of the life in America, from where he actually hails. For an instance, 'in the west, pleasures are either individual choice or a universal human experience. In Japan, pleasures are Japanese.' Although non-fiction, the book has been written in a story-like manner. Each essay reflects the pride of the city and the culture it upholds be it the usage of honorifics while addressing someone or the parting ritual at the end of the day

The highlight of the book is the Part 4: Quaking. Dated essays about the aftereffects of the fatal earthquake that hit Japan in March 2011. They capture the essence of the emotional turmoil that every tokyoite felt after the earthquake and how they coped with the tragedy.

The author has sprinkled Japanese words here and there in the essays. Some of them have been explained while some aren't to avoid interruption of the flow. There's a glossary at the end for easy reference.

The author's previous books on Tokyo have been widely appreciated and awarded.

Some interesting observations in the author's words:

'All over Tokyo, perfect outfits rise up like figures plucked from a Milan window display.' - Perfect Outfits

'One misplaced step means a bruised knee or bashed hip or, even worse, embarrassment.' - Public Tightness.

'Tokyoites seem to appreciate both sides, being both tough enough to change and tough enough to stay the same.' - Construction and Resistance

'Onigiri are like a haiku of the entire Japanese food culture.' - A Meal in the Hand

'The memory of that blanketing pink offered a reminder that beauty shows up on schedule, but it also arrives in swift gusts of vivid surprise.' - Hanami, and Just After

Personal Opinion: I've never read non-fiction before and it feels safe to say that I couldn't have asked for a better start. The book is informative but it doesn't bore you. The writing style of the author is vividly imaginative and easy to read. It feels as if with every new essay, you're unfolding a new mystery about Tokyo. The revelation makes you a bystander; it doesn't plunge you right inside leaving enough curiosity for you to want to uncover it yourself.

As enjoyable as it was, this book wasn't unputdownable. There's only so much you can absorb about another culture at a time. I read it at leisure and enjoyed it thoroughly. With minimal errors, this book takes 4 stars. It's not a travelogue, mind you. It's much more than that. So, if you enjoy reading about different cultures, this is the book for you. If you enjoy balanced writing and a good narrative, this book is for you. If you enjoy non-fiction, this book is for you.

For all its worth, this book makes me want to write about my city and I find that idea quite entertaining.

Marriage Can Wait, Education Cannot ~ The New Age Mantra

Why is marriage such a pressing issue? 

Mostly in small or second tier towns, though there can be exceptions and I certainly do not suggest that the people of big towns like Mumbai or Delhi don't wish to marry off their daughters as soon as they are of age, like the one I belong to, a girl, as soon as she attains an age of twenty, the talks of her marriage start hovering around the house as well as the entire neighbourhood. In some cases, the age above is replaced by the legal age, that is, 18. 

The mentality, as I reckon, is still very mediocre as regards independence and marriage in the minds of the people.

Although the world has moved on about having a girl as a burden and in some cases, a curse, we live in that part of the world which worships Goddesses and mocks the women in the perfect harmony that there could be. India has always been a mixture of contradictory beliefs. 

Where this is quite certain in the minds of people that marrying off their daughter is the best they can do for her, they fail to take in the reality, they fail to accept that they do not live in the medieval or ancient era that only allows a woman to be meek and compromising, to be pleased and thankful to be living under a man's protection. 

With the change of era, the meaning of marriage as well has significantly changed. 
Today women just don't need protection from the outside, but also from the inside. They need to be independent they need to know things that can help them survive in this world.

Source: picturequotes.com

The male dominated society, however, has managed to sow the seeds of an early marriage as a blessing in disguise in the minds of the women they have respectfully brought in their houses to feel validated about everything they do and every decision they make.

The reason for an early marriage? The girl's mind isn't mature and she'll do as is told, learn to adjust and settle as per the requirements of her far older and mature husband and easily bend to the whims of her in-laws, whatever those might be, without understanding that what she is doing, unknowingly, is making her own life miserable, pleasing everybody and not caring about her own wishes, aspirations and needs. Let's hope she gets a rather understanding and caring husband, who actually cares about what she thinks or what she cares about. In the case of the contrary, let's hope she somehow finds it in herself to either make peace with her fate as determined by the people around her or decides to do something about it.

And that's not where the problem ends. Before the girl realises what's happening with her, she bears a child so that every thought that could possibly make her revolt would be silenced for the sake of the child. 

And you'd think that's where things actually come in her hand? You couldn't be more wrong! If ever, she decides to revolt, the threats from her very own parents would be so unashamedly selfish, that she'd prefer to burn in hell instead of making her life better. You'd wonder she'd be able to turn to her parents for the respect and help she needs, erm, no, that's where status and society enter, yet again to ruin her life. 'What would the society think and say?', becomes a greater concern for the parents than the well-being of their own child!

I'm not talking about every parent, but this is a mindset that still clouds the minds of a large number of people in our country if not all, certainly not all.

But are only the parents to be blamed? Girls often dig the grave of their careers themselves by willfully succumbing to the societal trends of getting married as soon as they can. They fail to realize the consequence of abandoning the only means of their survival, education, in their eagerness of pleasing the society. God forbid, if anything were to happen to make their life miserable, any kind of abuse or violence, they'd either live in that misery till the day they die or will resort to the severe alternative, suicide. 

The Revolution

Teach your daughters to stand up for their rights rather than to make compromises at all times. Not that I oppose adjustment because that's impossible. For a healthy marriage or for that matter for any healthy relationship, adjustment and compromise are the deciding factors. But there should be a balance, a harmony, a blend of understanding from both the sides. You can't possibly ask a person to make all the sacrifices while you dominate the ride. 

And before teaching your daughters about compromise, teach them how to earn a living. By not entitling your daughter with her right to education, you're actively contributing to the possible downfall of your daughter's life.

Girls, work it out, make it possible to blend career and marriage instead of choosing one over the other. If not, then establish a fair means of income before taking a lifelong subscription of holy matrimony. Break the shackles of pathetic traditions that cast an eternal shadow on your existence.

Poetry: The Desperate Era!

The Desperate Era!

Laws are being broken,
laws are being made
Humanity being forsaken 
Leaving the people jaded

There's no stopping the crimes
Exist did ever, any safer times?
Money rules, man is the slave
Cowardice rises, where are the brave?

Skyscrapers stand tall
Mocking Mother Nature's fall
Will there be any future,
For the kids to rupture?

Captured in the four walls
Listening to drunken brawls
Frightened spirits call
'Is this hell, after all?'
