Anything is bad in excess". What do you get out of teeny weeny pieces of food and abstaining from mouth watery, since childhood sought-after dishes? Of course, we need to be conscious of our health and take food that is nutritious. Living on scrimpy food does not help either. It will only lead to health deterioration!! So Beware!! How long do we spend in choosing a sari, a necklace, a car?? Do we spend a fraction of the time for our health. No!! What about this Hitler plan of working out,jogging, yoga etc etc., Exercise tightens your muscles and makes you look younger and firmer. But what help of it is going to be when you have it with fried foods soaked in oil. Not caring what oil you use for cooking, having junk foods, you would end up spraining yourself in course of the exercise Plan. Diet and exercise both should go hand in hand, according to me. Personally I avoided rice which adds lot of calories and took more of wheat made dishes which is healthier. Lots of fresh vegetables(cooked) and fish can work magic on your skin:-) Believe me. For me exercise is just a casual walk in the evening by our garden, inhaling fresh air and making space for myself. Remember, healthy mind in a healthy body. Also whenever i can, i walk short distances like to the nearby market, bus station to office. It works for me and will work for everyone!! So what are you waiting for??
