Henry Cavill full body workout: Get as strong as Superman and The Witcher
This intense, protein-heavy Hollywood workout is how Henry got ready for The WitcherAfter packing on quite a few pounds of muscle mass to portray the Man of Steel in 2013, Cavill once again returned to the gym to do the same for the role of the Witcher, and his full body workout to get in shape this time seems no less intense than that for Superman. If you’d like a body like Geralt of Rivia or, erm, Kal-El of Krypton, you have come to the right place.
duo Kunal Nayyar and Mayim Bialik recently reunited for the latter's podcast.
Nayyar, who played Raj Koothrappali on the show, opened up to Bialik about his experiences with panic attacks, and "dark episodes" for his mental health.
"When I began to struggle mentally, when I began to have those dark episodes, that was very shocking to me," he noted.
Nayyar also spoke about his first ever panic attack, which happened when he was 30 years old and driving on a highway.
What are macros for weight loss: count macros, not calories to lose weight efficiently
Not all calories were created equalAs the saying goes, a calorie is not always a calorie, meaning that energy sourced from a broccoli will fuel your body differently than a calorie from a donut. You could go on a 1,000-calorie donut diet and lose weight, but you would also wreck your body in the process. However, sourcing calories from the right macros can help losing weight and keep it off on the long run.
"I didn't know what that was," he recalled. "Ever since then I've had to fight some kind of battle with panic or anxiety."
Bialik, who played Amy Farrah Fowler on the show, replied: "That's actually a great way to define a panic attack – you don't know what it is."
"I just went, 'Oh there's lots of traffic ahead', because I was just embarrassed," Nayyar, who had a passenger in the vehicle at the time, went on to recall.
"I'm having this full-blown panic attack inside, now I'm getting embarrassed so I'm pulling off [the highway] and joking.

"It got so bad I couldn't even look at my car keys without feeling panic, and then I knew something was wrong."
Nayyar decided to see a hypnotherapist, which he found helpful when it came to driving. However, he soon found his feelings of panic transferred over to being in a lift.
"Then, it became like the highway again, and that's when I said, 'Something's wrong'," he recalled. "That was five years into therapy."
"You can have a beautiful, spiritual life and at some point still feel anxious, still at some point feel sad and depressed and panicky," Nayyar added towards the close of the podcast.
"There's no shame in that, there's no shame in feeling anxious, there's no shame in feeling stress, there's no shame at feeling panic."
