Lose fat, gain muscles with diet and exercise
New York : Canadian researchers have found new dietary regimen for losing fat while gaining muscle, an oft-debated problem for those trying to manage their weight, control calories and balance protein consumption.
 
The study has established that it is possible to achieve both -- muscles and lose fat quickly and at the same time, the researchers, from the McMaster University in Ontatrio, Canada, said.
 
For the study, 40 young men underwent a month of hard exercise while cutting dietary energy they would normally require by 40 percent of what they would normally require.
 
"These guys were in rough shape, but that was part of the plan. We wanted to see how quickly we could get them into shape: Lose some fat, but still retain their muscle and improve their strength and fitness," said Stuart Phillips, a professor at McMaster.
 
Exercise, particularly lifting weights, provides a signal for muscle to be retained even when you're in a big calorie deficit, the research, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, revealed.
 
However, the researchers cautioned that this regimen is not for everyone.
 
The researchers divided their subjects into two groups. Both groups went on a low calorie diet, one with higher levels of protein than the other. 
 
The higher-protein group experienced muscle gains -- about 2.5 pounds -- despite consuming insufficient energy, while the lower protein group did not add muscle.
 
The high-protein group also lost more body fat.
 
The results showed that the high-protein group lost about 10.5 pounds and the low protein group only eight pounds.

Support GST bill passage: Assocham to Sonia
Kolkata : Assocham on Wednesday appealed to Congress president Sonia Gandhi to support the passage of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) legislation in parliament, and also suggested that the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations be implemented in a staggered manner.
 
"Let the Pay Commission be staggered over the next few years, or else the benefits derived out of the cut in subsidy on oil, LPG and fertiliser would be wiped off by the extra salary bill," Assocham president Sunil Kanoria told the media here.
 
Kanoria said all-out efforts should be made to get the GST Constitutional Amendment Bill -- which is pending in the Rajya Sabha -- passed in parliament, and urged Gandhi to extend his support to the legislation "which alone can make a huge difference to the business sentiment".
 
He said as the entire global economy was on the edge and India may also get a big hit like other emerging economies, the government should "certainly not implement" the Seventh Pay Commission at one go because it would not only ruin the health of the central fiscal structure but also the states which require large allocations for planned development.
 
"Given the perilous state of financial markets, raising money through disinvestment would be quite difficult for the government, which then is also expecting banks to get some re-capitalisation from the market which is going through one of the most tumultuous times," he said.
 
"With the nominal GDP likely to stay muted next year as well, the tax revenue targets cannot be set at ambitious level, while there would be lot more demand for pushing investment. That is why off-budget innovative financial models like the railways have to be found," he said.

Market Cap of 37478 Cr and stock trading around 175 PE. It's hard to see value when Vijay Mallya is still heading the company though he only has 5% stake in company and Diago is unable to get him out form his top position.
