Publishing house HarperCollins India and Amar Chitra Katha have announced a new collaboration to publish “a first-time adaptation of popular ACK comics into a narrative format for young children”.
The said collaboration will “bring the beautiful folktales of India from our iconic comic books into an exciting new format for younger readers,” said Preeti Vyas, President and CEO of Amar Chitra Katha Pvt. Ltd, adding, “Since our comic books are typically read by children in the 8-14 age group, we believe that these early chapter books will help us take these engaging stories to a younger age group, and open up our treasure trove of stories to a new audience.”
This series, put together meticulously by the writers at Amar Chitra Katha, brings together some of the greatest folktales in the ACK catalogue. Each book in the series is adapted from the original Amar Chitra Katha comics and aims to bring the reader closer to the thoughts and traditions that make up our country’s identity, said a joint statement.
Tina Narang, Publisher, HarperCollins Children’s Books, remarked, “Amar Chitra Katha has such a strong history of publishing for children, generations have grown up reading ACK comics. So, we are delighted to present a first-time adaptation of these popular comics into a narrative format for young children. We are launching this new initiative with the Amar Chitra Katha Folktales Collection.”
Food Items That Make You Gain Belly Fat
Are you wondering what to do apart from working out to prevent gaining fat around the abdomen? Well, apart from exercising, it is equally important to monitor your food intake, control portions and practice mindful eating.
After all, you are what you eat. There are some fattening foods or we could rather call them ‘belly bullies’ that must be avoided at any cost to shed those extra kilos around your belly.
Let’s take a look at the list of these foods that disrupt your slim waistline by fat deposition:
Sugary food and beverages: Cakes, candies, frozen yogurt, soda, pastries are high in sugar content. These foods have added sugar in them that contain a lot of fructose.
Both regular sugar and corn syrup are high in fructose. One has 50% fructose while the other has 55%. These foods decrease insulin sensitivity and cause fat deposition around the belly.
Processed food: The processed foods such as white bread, white rice, breakfast cereals, canned soups or tinned vegetables, potato chips, pies, muffins, biscuits, cookies- though taste great but are stripped of nutrients, fibers, vitamins. They contain a whole lot of extra sugar, salt, oil, and calories, trans fats.
Bacon, processed meat: These are high in calories, saturated fats that absolutely set your body functions out of whack. Avoid hot dogs, bacon, sausages as they are tough to digest and add to the fat deposition in your abdominal area.
Alcohol: Consumption of alcohol meddles with the body’s metabolism; reduces fat burning capacity, and calories from alcohol tend to get deposited as belly fat.
Carb-dense food: Bagels, white pasta, white rice, donuts are rich in carbohydrates. Consumption of such carb-dense food over a period of time, on a regular basis, leads to sugar and insulin spikes. Insulin resistance, PCOD, even cardiac problems might arise beside gaining belly fat.
Fried foods: Like the processed foods, fried foods are another factor contributing to the weight gain around the belly. High in fat, difficult to digest, cause acid reflux, simply sits in the stomach for prolonged hours- leading to the fat build up in the belly.
It is not only about the appearance going for a toss with the abdominal fat deposition, but it’s also about the health hazards that come with gaining the fat. So avoid these ‘belly bullies’ foods.
