Kumail Nanjiani | Train Like A Celebrity
Prevention 2hrs ago
Kumail Nanjiani became the Marvel Cinematic Universe's latest (and most surprising) hardbodied celebrity last December when he shared, in his words, a "thirsty shirtless" post, immediately jolting the trajectory of his acting career into overdrive.  For the pop culture world, Nanjiani the superhero truly arrived the moment he posted the photo. For the actor, the moment had been a long time coming, with countless hours of work behind the scenes on his body—we were there with him then—and more importantly, on his acting career to be in the perfect position to be cast as Marvel's first South Asian hero. You probably know how this has played out (and if you don't, catch up here with Nanjiani's wide-ranging Men's Health cover story). Now, Nanjiani is pulling back the curtain to share even more about how he was able to bulk up and the particular inspirations he used to get there. He hosted the Men's Health film crew at his gym with his trainer Grant Roberts.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
