DIET vs EXERCISE Health is wealth! People have been conscious of maintaining a healthy body and keeping fit. The present generation is going through a lot of stress, tension, and competition in their personal and professional lives. Many of us try to follow a regualar exercise regime, but sometimes diet is not taken care of or vice versa. And many of us are working in offices, which results in sitting and working for long hours. Thus it leads to lack of physical activity and thus we tend to put on weight. Also we travel by our own vehicle to our place of work. And most of the home makers also have the latest gadgets at home or they employ maids to do the routine house work. I have tried to plan my diet, eating at the right time. I eat non-vegetarian only once in a week, try to eat green vegetables, leafy vegetables, pulses, chappatis, very less rice. I try to avoid deeply fried foodstuff and also too many snacks. Instead I try to drink fresh fruit juices, eat fresh fruits, salads and avoid sweets. Then I make it a point to avoid tea & coffee. Instead I try to drink milk and eat curds daily. One must consume lots of water to help our digestive system. Also I try to do some Yoga exercises like Pranayam,etc, and some stretching exercises, and take morning walks to keep myself fit. I only try to do my daily household work by myself like laundry, washing utensils, etc thus it keeps me active and slim. Thus I try to keep a balance in my diet and exercise, trying to do all work by myself. Thus I do not have to worry about putting on weight.
