    WRT weight -- Looking at your TG and CARBS, I think you are working more - workouts, walks or whatever, else for a diabetic to hit sub 100 TG on 7 chapatis + 4 brown breads is a bit difficult in absence of any workouts/walks.

    Add peanuts+walnut+almonds to your daily menu and see if weight picks up.

    For building muscle isotonic/isometric exercises, weights, strength building should help. One of best stuff for building strength in least time is BULLWORKER -


  • Anup

    Have u tried bullworker..?

    How was the result in building muscles

  • Yes, first I tried in late 1970's and the overall dev from that day has carried on to this date. I bought one in 2011 again for Rs 1200, IIRC. I do it irregularly. It does give strength and tones up muscles.

  • Ok I will include wallnut almond and Peanuts to my daily menu. Hope it helps. Thanks Sir. :)

  • dear sir,

    qty or volume of muscle is not important,toning of the muscle is imp, you might have seen bruce lees body, less muscle , high flexibility,more strength and stamina and nerves of steel.that is the difference between body building and yogic exercise.
