I have a gym trainer and here is a dialogue between us:

Me: I have been coming to you for the past 4 years, and my weight remains the same! There is no use coming to the Gym.

Trainer: Do you come to the gym regularly?

Me: Of course I do! Regularly at least 5 days a week if not 6.

Trainer: Do you do any other exercises also?

Me – Yes, I do some cycling and swimming besides some running on the road.

Trainer: This is fantastic…but did you take a diet plan?

Me- No. I eat moderately.

Trainer: I want a note book ofย  what you eat, how many helpings,…what timings…once you give me those details I will be able to say something.

Me: Will it really make such a difference?

Trainer: You are dumb, or naive if you cannot understand that if you eat food of 3000 calories and burn out 2500 calories you will gain weight. You know that you are burning calories – but no clue (and therefore) no control on the calories. Frankly I think you are dumb if you cannot understand this.

  1. Subruji,
    i do understand what u are indicating. But that apart, is this story true? I have met you, you dont need to lose weight!

  2. it is absolutely TRUE. I need to lose weight – not much about 15kg. I do not lose weight because I eat too much too often. Read tomoro’s post and you will know what I am hinting at ๐Ÿ™‚

    ps: I am not over weight, I am obese. My clothes hide it! see camouflage works ๐Ÿ™‚

    from personal finance point Subra might be hinting at the saving and expenses . Its means that it does not matter much how much you earn , the real thing is saving.. so a person earning much might complain that he is not able to build wealth because his expenses are more than his savings .. and he doesnt understadn this simple thing ..

    If A earns 10000 and saves 5000 and B earns 40000 and saves 2000 , at the end , A will be able to build more wealth .. where as B might be complaining that he is not .

    So start working on reducing you expenses as well as increasing your income .


  4. My ‘business’ is training. Blogging is a hobby. There is no connection at all between the two.

    Not too many people know the difference between an income asset and a growth asset, how to convert an income asset to a growth asset – and pay less tax, etc….to them all ‘asset’ classes are the same..

  5. I do financial planning – for people who want to get rich too :). As of now it is almost insignificant part of my time spent or revenue earned. As soon as the entry load vanished, i activated my arn code and asked friends / relatives to invest using that. Not bad, considering that they are not paying me any fee otherwise ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. @Subra

    I meant to say Investing only ๐Ÿ™‚ . I understand that It created confusion , but in my language

    saving = saving and then investing it . Definately , just saving the money means loosing it to inflation , If one has to just “save” , I think its better to spend and enjoy [pun intended] ๐Ÿ˜‰
