Our attention is too focussed on our weighing scales, not where it should be – on taking care of ourselves. Being healthy doesn’t mean a particular weight or a particular body type – it means understanding what your body needs. Rujuta Diwekar breaks down the 3 rules of sustainable health – 

  • Metabolic Health Parameters VS Weight Loss

Today’s health trend focus on weight loss, but a true sign of health cannot be measured. Do we sleep well at night? Do we wake up feeling fresh? Do our energy levels stay good throughout the day? However, it is in the interest of the food industry to keep your eyes on the scales and that is what is propagated. 

  • All-round VS One-Dimensional Approach to Fitness

There are many aspects of a fit body – hormones, organs, bones, muscles, skin, hair and so much more. So, when you look at getting healthy, the idea is to make sure you’re working towards all your body parts being taken care of, not just one isolated aspect. Food, activity, exercise and sleep together make for an all round approach that works in the long term. 

  • Long-term VS Short Term Solutions

When you think about your health plan, you must consider this – are you ready to do this for the next 5-6 years? If not, you have to rethink your approach. Quick weight loss can also mean an immediate remission of someone going back to the toxic habits that will ruin their efforts.
