HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Rujuta Diwekar's 8 meal plan is suitable for people with diabetes
  2. She says that good health can only by felt and not measured
  3. Foods should be looked at as seasonal, regional and local

What is the most effective way to lose weight? This is one of the most common questions asked to dietitians and nutritionists. When it comes to weight loss, most of you focus only on losing weight and how quickly and efficiently we can do it. Giving up on a few food groups like carbs and fats seem to be just the right thing to do. But according to celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, the very practice of looking at foods like carbs, protein, fats and calories make food very complicated.

Not only does looking at food like carbs, protein and fats, etc make the food complicated, it also complicates our health. According to one of Rujuta's latest Facebook posts, looking at food as local, seasonal and regional helps in managing weight and improving your overall health.

Speaking of fitness, she goes on to mention that fitness isn't just about exercising for 1 hour or 2 hours in a day and then lazing around the rest of the time. Fitness is built by compounding effects of your little efforts made towards fitness on a daily basis. These efforts should bring a positive change to your overall lifestyle. Fitness certainly cannot be achieved to the fullest by blindly following the latest diet or workout plan which is trending on social media.

Furthermore, how do you find out if you are healthy or not? Is it by where you are touching the scale on the weighing machine or how close you are to achieve the size zero waist line? Rujuta believes in neither. In her Facebook post, she clearly says that your quality of sleep, compliance of exercising, daily energy levels and the level of your sweet cravings are just a few markers of your overall health. Good health cannot be measured. It can only be felt.

Following the above rules are probably all that you need to live a healthy and fit life. But Rujuta's mission to make the country doesn't stop here.

Rujuta says in her Facebook post that this meal plan can work equally well for people suffering from diabetes, heart ailments or blood pressure problems.
