Bollywood actress Nushrat Bharucha does not believe in the “size zero” fad. She says the concept of fitness is more beyond having a size zero body type.

“Being fit does not mean one has to be a size zero. There needs to be a balance and one needs to understand what works for his/her body type and fix their own benchmark. Eventually it is all about how one feels on the inside, whether you are energized enough to survive the day and not feel too lethargic at any point,” the 33-year-old told IANS over an e-mail interaction.

After entertaining the audience with her acting skills in movies like “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” and “Pyaar Ka Punchnama”, Nushrat Bharucha has now joined international chef Vikas Khanna for his three episode web series called “Kitchen, Khanna and Konverstations”.

She got featured in the first episode of the show, where both the celebrities cooked healthy meals with the addition of Quaker Oats.

Sharing her fitness routine, Nushrat Bharucha said: “When I am shooting and when I am on the set, it depends on the film and what I am training for…my meals completely depended on what my trainer advised me to eat. Whether he tells me to follow a strict no carbs diet or an ‘only-fruits’ diet, I achieve results by sheer motivation. ”

She also stressed on the importance of meals in an individual’s daily life and also gave some health tips to youngsters.

“Eating is as important as eating right. I feel that millennials today are very pressed for time and are constantly on the go. I genuinely wish there were 42 hours in a day because I have so much work to do. Often when on the run, meals are skipped, and we feel that a meal skipped means we are not putting on any weight.

“But the truth is that it is a bad idea! However, we ignore that if we forget to eat during our meal times, we are ending up putting on more weight in the long run. So, eating regularly and the right food is equally and as important as your diet,” she added. (IANS)

According to Study, those who reported that they did not intend to participate in Sports during age 8 to 14 were 22 per cent more likely to suffer Mental Health Issues in their late 20s and 30s. Pixabay

Adolescents who play contact sports, including football, are no more likely to experience cognitive impairment, depression or suicidal thoughts in early adulthood than their peers, says a new study.

Published in the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine, study of nearly 11,000 youth followed for 14 years found that those who play sports are less likely to suffer from mental health issues by their late 20s to early 30s.

“There is a common perception that there’s a direct causal link between youth contact sports, head injuries and downstream adverse effects like impaired cognitive ability and mental health, we did not find that,” said study lead author Adam Bohr from University of Colorado Boulder.

The study analysed data from 10,951 participants in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health), a representative sample of youth in seventh through 12th grades who have been interviewed and tested repeatedly since 1994.

Participants were categorised into groups: those who, in 1994, said they intended to participate in contact sports; those who intended to play non-contact sports; and those who did not intend to play sports.

Among males, 26 per cent said they intended to play football.

After controlling for socioeconomic status, education, race and other factors, the researchers analysed scores through 2008 on word and number recall and questionnaires asking whether participants had been diagnosed with depression or attempted or thoughts about suicide.

“We were unable to find any meaningful difference between individuals who participated in contact sports and those who participated in non-contact sports. Across the board, across all measures, they looked more or less the same later in life,” said Bohr.

Football players had a lower incidence of depression in early adulthood than other groups, said researchers.
