Skipping snippets

I have been a victim of frequent throat infection since my childhood. When I asked the doctor to suggest me a remedy for this, he adviced me to exercise regularly to stay fit and healthy.

Recently, I suffered severe ear and throat infection due to the weather change and I had to visit him for medicines. Before leaving the clinic, this is the conversation between the doctor and me.

Me: I have been skipping a lot, these days.

He: You should not skip.

Me: But its too good for health. It is one of the best methods to lose weight :) (I told with a smile)

He: Nope. It isn't. Many people think it is good to skip and lose weight. In turn, you tend to gain more fat if you skip frequently.

Me: (Puzzled :-|) Doctor, I do sweat a lot. I might have lost around two kilos, atleast.

He: That's good. But, I isn't good to skip.

Me: (Awestuck....????) I do drink a lot of water after skipping.

He: That is too bad. You shouldn't be doing that!

Me: I just do 200 skips daily for 20 minutes. I warm up for 10 mins before rope skipping. Later, I relax for 10 mins after I skip :)

He: I thought you were speaking of "meals skipping." (Now relaxed and smiled)

Me: Oh.. No. I was talking of "rope skipping."

He: It is good to rope skip. You should continue with it. (With a sigh of relief.)

  6. LOL very funny, at first I thought this was a post about how doctors give crazy suggestions sometimes.
    BTW I also used to have frequent throat infections, and amazingly found a solution just this Feb. Do try Homeopathy, Belladona and Dr Reckeweg's R1. No side effects.
