About the Book
“No pain, no gain,” is a mantra that we’re always told whenever we broach the topic of getting fit or losing weight. Somehow, there’s always a stigma of suffering that’s often attached to the very idea of fitness. While this might serve as an inspiring or motivating mantra for some, it can also be just as demotivating for others. This is because the human brain is inherently wired to avoid pain or discomfort in all its forms. This is the main reason why people are often so put off by the idea of putting in the work to actually lose weight and get fit. In their minds, they’ve conditioned themselves to believe that they’re not going to enjoy the process. This is not the right way to go about it.
Of course, to a certain extent, certain sacrifices have to be made in order to find success in practically anything in life. Whether it be in one’s romantic life, career, or fitness, sacrifice is always necessary. However, the need to sacrifice doesn’t necessarily entail suffering or displeasure. It’s perfectly possible for one to achieve their fitness goals while also enjoying the process. It doesn’t always have to be some kind of devastating road to becoming one’s better self. In fact, most of the people who actually find substantial success in their health and wellness are those who know how to enjoy the process. This is because enjoying the process allows them to sustain their lifestyles for the long term.

Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
Losing weight is arguably one of the most commonly failed goals that people set for themselves. In general, as human beings, we always aspire towards a life of health and fitness. However, many of us don’t necessarily have the drive or the know-how to achieve those kinds of aspirations. More than that, not everyone has the kind of resilience or discipline to see things through once they get started.
When it comes to losing weight and staying fit, it shouldn’t be so hard to see why that’s the case. There’s no denying that it’s a lot more fun to engage in unhealthy habits like overeating or just lazing around. Although, not a lot of people realize that the process of getting fit and healthy can also be just as much fun as well. In fact, that’s the key to finding sustainable success in being fit and staying healthy. It’s all about making the process as fun and as enjoyable as possible so that you stay happy all throughout.
