There is never a single tip or pill for achieving optimum health. It is important to drink lots of water and get adequate sleep to maintain your fitness and overall well-being, suggest experts. Celebrity nutritionist Pooja Makhija and Govindrajan R, Head, Research and Development, Sugar Free, list down some tips:
1. It is imperative to open your eyes to fads. Dieting does not mean deprivation, you need to eat right to be in shape. Weight loss is a journey, you must adopt a lifestyle approach towards it and that’s the only way to achieve permanent fat loss. Protein is the key to a healthy lifestyle.
2. In an attempt to keep up with the fast-paced life, we tend to neglect our sleep cycle. Don’t cut back on sleep in your zest to win each day. Your body is magical but needs rest to work its magic. Every individual needs a minimum of 7-8 hours of sleep each night to recharge your body, failing which you will ‘burn out’. A healthy sleeping pattern is necessary not only for the benefit of your physical health, but also to maintain your mental well-being.
