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.
