When Vidya Balan revealed she was labelled as someone who brought ‘bad luck’ to the South film industry – PINKVILLA

This year, Vidya Balan will be returning to charm us as Shakuntala Devi in her upcoming film, but did you know she was once labelled as 'jinxed'.

Vidya Balan is one of the finest actors in Bollywood. Over the years, the actress has given some blockbuster hits and slipped in and out of characters with much ease. In her long career, Vidya Balan has also treated her fans with not just specific roles and characters, but gone a step further and even made risky as well as bold choices. From keeping us on the edge of the seat in Kahaani to her jaw-dropping performance in The Dirty Picture, Vidya Balan's last outing at the box office was the blockbuster hit Mission Mangal.

This year, Vidya will be returning to charm us as Shakuntala Devi with a film of the same name. In the biopic drama, Vidya will be essaying the role of Shakuntala Devi, popularly known as the 'human computer'. The first look of the film has intrigued many fans. The film will also star Jisshu Sengupta, Sanya Malhotra and Amit Sadh. Give the coronavirus crisis, the film will not be releasing in theatres but instead will make its way to a streaming platform. While we cannot wait to see Vidya take on a new avatar yet again, we must realise that the actress did not always have it easy.

Turns out, the actress did not have anything going for her when she first started out in the South Indian film industry. Words such as 'bad luck' and 'jinxed' were often used for the actress and she had also opened up about same in an interview last year to Filmfare. Much before Vidya's Bollywood debut with Parineeta, the actress actively pursued a film career down South.

In fact, her first film was opposite Malayalam superstar Mohanlal and the actress evens signed for 12 projects post that. But as fate had it, the film unfortunately got shelved. As per reports, a Mohanlal film getting shelved raised much eyebrows back in the day and the actress was subsequently dropped from all films, labelling her as 'bad luck'.

Speaking about this rejection and the failure she has faced so far, Vidya once told Filmfare, "It angers you to be told that youre unlucky. Or that you arent good enough. During Begum Jaan, I harnessed all the anger I felt for all these years. I was carrying the anger of rejection, the judgement around my body, the criticism around my dressing. Ive been called jinxed down South. I rejected my body all my life. I worked hard at accepting myself. That acceptance isnt complete yet. Its still a long way. People dont understand that when you grow up a fat girl, it doesnt leave you."

Over the years, Vidya has not shied away from speaking about weight issues or maintaining a certain image just because she is a celebrity. She has often smashed these stereotypes and addressed hormonal issues she has gone through. "Ive had hormonal problems all my life. Its probably because of the judgement Ive carried around my body. When I was a teenager, people would tell me, Youve got such a pretty face, why dont you lose some weight? Its not a nice thing to say to anyone. Be it a child or a grown-up. So, Id starve myself, Id go through crazy exercise regimens and lose weight. Then the hormonal issue would settle for a bit before it reared its head again."

The actress had also revealed that she stopped looking at the montior years ago since she was dealing with body image issues. "I guess it was my bodys way of revolting because in wanting it to be what it was not, I was constantly rejecting it. Theres no machine as smart as your body. Its the only machine that has emotional intelligence. So even at my thinnest, Ive always felt fat. Weight loss, weight gain, weight loss, weight gain was my pattern for as long as I can remember. Years ago, I stopped watching my shots on the monitor at shoots because Id look at the monitor and be thinking, Am I looking fat?"

Today, the actress has come a long way since then and has become a champion of body positivity. She will soon be seen in Shakuntala Devi which releases on 31 July, 2020, on Amazon Prime.

Working off your quarantine weight gain | Health24 – Health24

Life in lockdown has led many to overeat and gain weight, a phenomenon referred to as the "Covid-15".

But some small changes can get you back into shape, a weight management specialist suggests.

"Covid-19 changed how we eat, what we eat and how we spend our day," said Dr Peter Jian, an assistant professor of family and community medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

"Unfortunately, for some of us that meant less healthy choices," Jian added in a Baylor news release.

Jian offered these tips for working off the excess pounds and returning to a healthy lifestyle:

"It's a very challenging time. But I think the best we can do is focus on the positives and focus on the things that we can control, and the things that we can do to positively influence our own health," Jian said.

As more go hungry and malnutrition persists, achieving Zero Hunger by 2030 in doubt, UN report warns – World Health Organization

Writing in the foreword, the heads of the five agencies warn that five years after the world committed to end hunger, food insecurity and all forms of malnutrition, we are still off track to achieve this objective by 2030".

The hunger numbers explained

In this edition, critical data updates for China and other populous countriesii have led to a substantial cut in estimates of the global number of hungry people, to the current 690 million. Nevertheless, there has been no change in the trend. Revising the entire hunger series back to the year 2000 yields the same conclusion: after steadily diminishing for decades, chronic hunger slowly began to rise in 2014 and continues to do so.

Asia remains home to the greatest number of undernourished (381 million). Africa is second (250 million), followed by Latin America and the Caribbean (48 million). The global prevalence of undernourishment or overall percentage of hungry people has changed little at 8.9 percent, but the absolute numbers have been rising since 2014. This means that over the last five years, hunger has grown in step with the global population.

This, in turn, hides great regional disparities: in percentage terms, Africa is the hardest hit region and becoming more so, with 19.1 percent of its people undernourished. This is more than double therate in Asia (8.3 percent) and in Latin America and the Caribbean (7.4 percent). On current trends, by2030, Africa will be home to more than half of the worlds chronically hungry.

As progress in fighting hunger stalls, the COVID-19 pandemic is intensifying the vulnerabilities andinadequacies of global food systems understood as all the activities and processes affecting theproduction, distribution and consumption of food. While it is too soon to assess the full impact ofthe lockdowns and other containment measures, the report estimates that at a minimum, another83 million people, and possibly as many as 132 million, may go hungry in 2020 as a result of theeconomic recession triggered by COVID-19.iii The setback throws into further doubt the achievementof Sustainable Development Goal 2 (Zero Hunger).

Overcoming hunger and malnutrition in all its forms (including undernutrition, micronutrientdeficiencies, overweight and obesity) is about more than securing enough food to survive: whatpeople eat and especially what children eat must also be nutritious. Yet a key obstacle is thehigh cost of nutritious foods and the low affordability of healthy diets for vast numbers of families.

The report presents evidence that a healthy diet costs far more than US$ 1.90/day, the internationalpoverty threshold. It puts the price of even the least expensive healthy diet at five times the price offilling stomachs with starch only. Nutrient-rich dairy, fruits, vegetables and protein-rich foods (plantand animal-sourced) are the most expensive food groups globally.

The latest estimates are that a staggering 3 billion people or more cannot afford a healthy diet. Insub-Saharan Africa and southern Asia, this is the case for 57 percent of the population though noregion, including North America and Europe, is spared. Partly as a result, the race to endmalnutrition appears compromised. According to the report, in 2019, between a quarter and a thirdof children under five (191 million) were stunted or wasted too short or too thin. Another 38million under-fives were overweight. Among adults, meanwhile, obesity has become a globalpandemic in its own right.

A call to action

The report argues that once sustainability considerations are factored in, a global switch to healthydiets would help check the backslide into hunger while delivering enormous savings. It calculatesthat such a shift would allow the health costs associated with unhealthy diets, estimated to reachUS$ 1.3 trillion a year in 2030, to be almost entirely offset; while the diet-related social cost ofgreenhouse gas emissions, estimated at US$ 1.7 trillion, could be cut by up to three-quarters.ivThe report urges a transformation of food systems to reduce the cost of nutritious foods and

increase the affordability of healthy diets. While the specific solutions will differ from country tocountry, and even within them, the overall answers lie with interventions along the entire foodsupply chain, in the food environment, and in the political economy that shapes trade, publicexpenditure and investment policies. The study calls on governments to mainstream nutrition intheir approaches to agriculture; work to cut cost-escalating factors in the production, storage,

transport, distribution and marketing of food including by reducing inefficiencies and food loss andwaste; support local small-scale producers to grow and sell more nutritious foods, and secure theiraccess to markets; prioritize childrens nutrition as the category in greatest need; foster behaviourchange through education and communication; and embed nutrition in national social protectionsystems and investment strategies.

The heads of the five UN agencies behind the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the Worlddeclare their commitment to support this momentous shift, ensuring that it unfolds in a sustainableway, for people and the planet.

Woman claims she was evicted from St. Albans Planet Fitness over her clothing – Local 22/44 News

The Planet Fitness in St. Albans is facing scrutiny after a disagreement over the clothing a member was wearing.

On Thursday, a woman posted on Facebook that she was working out at Planet Fitness in gym shorts when she was asked to change clothes.

I entered the gym, changed, walked to the free weights and did exactly one minute of jumping jacks before an employee approached me and said multiple people had complained my shorts were too short and I needed to change

According to her post, she was told multiple people were uncomfortable with what she was wearing. But she said she was able to confirm with other people working out that they were okay with her outfit.

I turned to the 4 people working out and asked them if my shorts were intimidating. They said no. I turned back to the employees and told them that nobody is bothered by my shorts and that I was sick of being harassed for my clothing and if no one else has an issue with my shorts I wasnt leaving.

She wrote that once she did that, Planet Fitness staff told her to leave. She refused, and the St. Albans Police were called. After talking with the officers, the woman said she would change her clothes and leave.

We reached out to the woman, and the Saint Albans Planet Fitness location, they have not replied to our request for comment. The Saint Albans Police Department did respond, but told us no one was available for an interview.

The woman said she has received support on Facebook, adding that the company thrives on weakness .

I have had over 300 people from across the US and Canada reach out furious about this situation with at least a third sharing their own Planet Fitness horror stories They are all women.

What Is Intuitive Eating All About? The 10 Principles And More – Women’s Health

Whether you want to lose weight or eat better, there are a lot of diets out there vying for your attention. Keto? Whole30? Plant-based?

If all of the options have your head spinning (same), I've got just the thing for you. This diet actually isnt a ~diet~ at allbut it can still help you with your eating goals. Its called intuitive eating, and its a movement thats gaining major followers.

On a basic level, intuitive eating is all about getting in touch with body cues (like hunger and fullness) and learning to trust your body when it comes to food, explains nutritionist Keri Gans, RD. There are no restrictions or forbidden foods; just an effort for you to eat well, feel healthier, and enjoy food more.

For many people, the traditional diet approach leads to nothing more than years and years of weight loss and weight gain and a negative relationship with food and their body image, Gans says. Intuitive eating is here to put that crap to bed.

Clearly, there's something to it. Instagram is filled with comments from people who rave about how intuitive eating has helped them stop obsessing over their weight, quit binge-eating, and end feelings of guilt around food.

Of course, theres a little more to making this whole intuitive eating thing work. Heres what you need to know about the eating approachand how to make it work for you.

As the name suggests, intuitive eating is all about following your own innate intuition.

The biggest difference between intuitive eating and dietsor lifestyle changesis the focus on internal signals and cues rather than external rules, says nutritionist and certified intuitive eating counselor Alissa Rumsey, RD, owner of Alissa Rumsey Nutrition and Wellness. Intuitive eating uses feelings of hunger, fullness, satisfaction, and body knowledge to dictate eating choices in the moment. Traditional diets, meanwhile, use external factors like nutrient counts, calories, or food groups to plan food ahead of time without room for flexibility.

This content is imported from {embed-name}. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

While you can lose weight by following an intuitive eating approach, its not necessarily the goal. Instead, the goal with intuitive eating is to foster a healthier, happier approach to food.

Yes, it sounds suuuuper simplebut it definitely takes work to achieve. Were all born knowing how to listen to our bodys hunger and satiety signals but, as we go through life, our natural intuition is blunted on so many levels, says nutritionist Karen Ansel, RD. As children, adults are constantly feeding us snacks, whether were hungry or not; were told to finish our meals even though our bodies may be perfectly well-nourished; were rewarded with food for good behavior. At the same time, were told that hunger is an emergency, even though its a completely natural sensation, just like being tired.

Though intuitive eating offers the alluring promise of no food being off-limits, the process of reestablishing (and following) your natural cues is a tricky one.

Its long and time consuming, and sometimes you have to fail before you can succeed, Ansel says. The upside is that once you learn to eat intuitively, weight control often becomes infinitely easier, as your body naturally possesses all the tools to guide you. At this point, you can easily eat only when truly hungry and stop when satisfied. No stress.

The intuitive eating movement has been around in some form since the 1970s, but the term intuitive eating was coined in 1995 by nutritionists Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch, authors of Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Program That Works.

In their book, Tribole and Resch encourage people to reject diet culture, find satisfaction in eating, and listen to their body cues around food. They also ID three different eating personalities that help define the eating difficulties you might have:

The ultimate goal, according to Tribole and Resch, is to become an intuitive eater, someone who listens to their internal hunger cues. When theyre hungry, intuitive eaters pick something to eat without debating about it or feeling guilty.

So, how does one become an intuitive eater, exactly? To help you get there, Tribole and Resch came up with the 10 principles of intuitive eating, which all focus on creating a healthier relationship with food.

The principles of intuitive eating are guideposts that help you unlearn the dieting behaviors and diet mentality you've been taught and instead learn to tune back into your own body, Rumsey explains. While it's not always a linear experience, rejecting the diet mentality and learning to honor your bodys hunger cues are some of the foundational experiences."

Live by these principles, she says, and you'll not only find a happier relationship with food, but more positive self-care and coping behaviors, body respect, and more intuitive, joyful movement, too.

The 10 principles of intuitive eating, according to Tribole and Resch, are:

This means ditching diet books and avoiding articles that tell you how to lose weight quickly.

Learning to listen to your hunger cues is crucial, Tribole and Resch argue. Focusing on keeping your body nourished with the right foods can help prevent overeating.

This means giving yourself permission to eat what you want, when you want it.

Tribole and Resch urge people to remove good and bad thinking from eating. Have a bowl of ice cream? Don't feel guilty about it; its just food, and its part of your overall healthy diet.

Eating should be a pleasurable experience and, if you enjoy what youre eating, should help you feel satisfied and content. Identifying this satisfaction can help you learn when youve had enough of a food you enjoy.

Trust your body to lead you to the right foods and listen for the signals that youre not hungry anymore. Tribole and Resch also recommend pausing in the middle of eating to ask yourself how the food tastes, and how hungry you are at that moment.

Learn to recognize that food restriction can trigger loss of control and emotional eating. Learn to ID your emotions and find ways to deal with them that dont involve food.

Embrace your body, so you can feel better about who you are.

Be active for the sake of moving your body, instead of tracking how many calories you burn during exercise. Focusing on the energy you get from working out can help keep you motivated.

Make food choices that are good for your healthand taste greatwhile making you feel good. Know that you dont have to eat perfectly to be healthy. That one snack, meal, or day of less-healthy eating wont torpedo your goals.

If you want to rethink your relationship with food, Ansel recommends picking up the Intuitive Eating book to get the full view of what it's all about.

Its also a good idea to really immerse yourself in the concept. You have likely been absorbing years and years of diet culture messages, so surrounding yourself with alternative messaging will be helpful, says Rumsey, who recommends checking out different podcasts, books, and blogs created by registered dietitians and therapists certified in intuitive eating. These will help you weed through a lot of your long-held beliefs about food and your body to start developing a new relationship, she says.

Some of her recommendations:

Another question to consider: What do you really want to eat right now? Allow yourself to have whatever the answer is, Rumsey says. By allowing yourself to eat whatever you want, you stop the diet cycle in its tracks.

It can take time, but your mind and body will eventually learn that you have access to all foods and, with time, cravings and overeating should decrease. If youre unsatisfied, youll probably keep looking for that one thing that is going to make you feel satisfied and content, and youre more likely to overeat, Rumsey explains. When you eat what you really want, the feelings of satisfaction and pleasure you feel will help you be content.

You'll also want to start tuning in to your hunger signals, Rumsey says. Start noting when you tend to feel hungry during the dayand what you tend to do in those moments. Honoring your hungereating each time you are hungryis an important step in building back body trust, she explains.

If you're looking for extra support, a registered dietitian can help guide you through the first few months of intuitive eating. Each person is different and an intuitive eating registered dietitian can help you work through your unique challenges and questions, says Rumsey.

The bottom line: Intuitive eating is a great way to feel healthier in your body and create a happier, easier relationship with food. Experts say that it's never too late to work on intuitive eatingand that it really does work for most people.
