1 The Book You Need to Read!
Celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar spoke to Cosmo about being healthy, eating home- cooked meals and her second book, Don’t Lose Out, Work Out!
Cosmo: What’s your idea of a healthy lifestyle?
Rujuta Diwekar: “According to me, a healthy lifestyle is one where you experience harmony between what you want to do and what you actually do, and how you want to look and the way you really look.”
C What Wh t can we expect from your book?
RD: “This book addresses everything wrong that goes in the name of exercising. It aims to restore exercise to its real position in our life—that of a non-negotiable and integral aspect of our daily life. It takes as little as 150 minutes of exercise a week to not just keep our bodies healthy, but also keep our brains, kidney, lungs and heart in good shape. This is what I’ve tried to convey through the book.”
C: Can a girl stay fit without having to sweat it out at the gym?
RD: “Sure, you can. There’s a difference between exertion and exercise, so any programme that’s is hectic is not going to lead you anywhere.”
C: What kind of diet plays a role here?
RD: “Keep it simple—eat home-cooked food, carry meals from home, eat local, seasonal, produce, eat in peace and relish every bite of what you eat.”
Don’t Lose Out, Work Out! by Rujuta Diwekar, ` 250, is published by Westland Limited, and available in stores now.
