From the Managing Director at Intuit, India & Emerging markets at the age of 27, to the Managing Director, South Asia at Adobe, to CEO & MD, India & South Asia, Facebook to his entrepreneurial journey of leading Dailyhunt, Umang Bedi's hectic schedules have been unable to deter his resolute march towards a healthy lifestyle. While for many, crash diets are the quick-fix solutions when it’s about losing weight, Bedi believes that shedding extra pounds is primarily achieved through good sleep, a proper diet, regular exercise and strength training. In addition to the program LeanScience, a scientific approach to improve one’s health, Bedi's personal trainer turned his lean mission into an analytical science to measure and record all aspects of his health, helping him reduce from 140 kgs to 77 kgs today. Apart from taking his love for fitness to a whole new level, Bedi loves spending time playing golf with friends. His idea of leisure also includes cooking for family and unwinding with a good read.

To know more about his idea of a perfect weekend, despite the long hours at work, read on:

On a typical weekend you will find me... 

Cooking a meal for my family and catching up on my reading.

My idea of relaxing... 

Is a round of golf with friends. Nothing is as cathartic as spending time on the links with good company.

One vice I cannot do without... 

I am addicted to diet Coke! It is the one thing my fridge is always stocked with!

I love a Staycation/adventure... 

I love a bit of adventure and a lot of me-time. The place is not as important as the time spent with family.

 

 

I confess, I am a... 

Health buff. From counting calories to lifting weights to HIIT, I love working out!

 

I spend me-time on...

Lying on my couch, reading! I am a voracious reader and enjoy fiction as well as non fiction.

The last show I binge watched...

Game of Thrones. I love the ‘world building’. I think GRR Martin is a genius in the way he is able to create such wonderful characters you root for one moment and hate the next.  I think the show has managed to capture the soul of the books quite well.

I can make a mean...

Omelette. Friends and family swear by it!

A skill/hobby I want to learn this year...

Nature fascinates me a lot and I would love to start trekking seriously.

My next vacation/adventure will be...

Jaguar spotting in the Amazon Rain-forest is on the bucket list!
