- Eating small 4-5
frequent nutritious meals throughout the day is much better than having 3 Large meals heavy, The science behind
this is that having small nutrition us meals helps maintain the body metabolism and helps in the digestion
process. The more the bodies metabolism, the more it will help in burning bat. Human digestive system is
designed to eat small meals frequently.

consist of Carbohydrates (55 %) proteins (35%) and fats (15%). Carbohydrates diet should
consist of complex Carbohydrates like, oatmeal(daliya), seasoned vegetables, skim milk , brown breads , low
glycemic index fruits(apple, papaya, orange, grapefruit, etc). Simple Carbohydrates which are made from sugars

- Try to have
Oatmeal with Skim milk for breakfast in the morning at least 5 times a week. Oatmeal is great to start feeding
your body with in the morning. Quaker Brand is best to have.

more than 2 spoon full of table sugar in a day with either tea, coffee or
- Try to have a
fruit of low glycemic index (apple, orange, papaya , grapefruit) and some seasoned vegetable with atlases 3
meals in a day.
Exercise moderately 4-5 times a week for 30 minutes. Activities such as brisk
walk , slow jogging done continuously for 5 times a week will be beneficial. The idea should be to make your
whole body sweat and increase your heart rate. Never push your limits too much while exercising please
understand that regular moderate exercise is the Key towards weight loss and good health. High intense
exercises can lead to injury and should only be done after your body has achieved a comfort level of exercise.
Once your body is adapted to exercise and you have lost some considerable amount of weight , 20-30 minutes
of moderate exercise like cardio 3 times a week is sufficient for fitness and good
Try to leave your stomach empty for 2 to 3 hours before you exercise. It is very
important to have a light meal 2 to 3 hours before workout. A brown bread vegetable sandwich with tea can be a
light meal. I prefer doing my cardio in the morning as it makes me feel fresh. Its unto an individual how
he/she wants to incorporate exercise into their lifestyle.
- REST is a very
important attribute for good health, Try to sleep for at least- 6- 8 hours daily. With Physical Rest , mental
rest also is very important. Try to free your mind from unnecessary tensions as much as you can. Tensions
secrete negative chemicals and hormones in our body which is not good.
- Always be happy
and feel pride if anything you are doing is right. Working towards losing weight and good health should be
taken as a token of motivation and pride. All of us are the children of the infinite (whom we call god). So
always try to associate yourself with the infinite , you will be at peace. The infinite has given us such a
wonderful body. We need to respect it and protect it from diseases. The infinite gave humans many things to
protect and guard our bodies from various diseases. We humans need to realize the importance of those many
things and use them to lead a healthier life.
- Do not
compare yourself with others. Each individual is unique. Problems arise when we humans start comparing
ourselves with others without even giving any thought too it. Try to get positive points from others and try to
remove your negative points. Like I learnt Pranayama (one of the most positive thing )from the respected saint
Swami Ramdev through television . Basic Pranayama(deep breathing) exercises will bring peace to a persons mind
if done correctly and will also aid in good health.
- Share your ideas
of good health with people whom you trust. Good health knowledge should be shared. You will in return get back
- The last tip I would like to mention is a
bit philosophical. All of us know that one day our body has to end. We have to leave the earth planet.
Some will go early and some a bit late. Living with this realization that life is nothing but a short
story which will end some day will help us appreciate life better. All our egos , hatred , jealousies,
emotions end when we die. So we all need to cherish and respect this wonderful life which god has given
us. And with life the very important thing associated is health.
