I have always been of the opinion that sugar substitutes never really work! Incidentally, last time I went to my doc, we fell into talking about sugar cravings and how to prevent diabetes. That was when he assured me that sugar substitutes actually work very well towards preventing diabetes. But, I still have my doubts on how many calories they reduce?

Bahubali I know you might have read tons and tons about the movie by now but it is just too good to pass on without me mentioning about it. I have to say that I am in love with the movie. It is so larger-than-life and it is not the story but the portrayal of the characters. Finally, an Indian movie on par with Troy and Gladiator and what not! And, yes, I know many of its scenes are inspired from the above movies but who cares! They are damn good inspirations and the inspired is equally a … [Read more...] about My Hair Diary – June 2015
It’s hard to decide where to start this, especially when ‘diet’ is probably one of the most searched keywords on the internet.
