You Are What You Eat

A lot of people talk about detoxing your body by having only fruits and salad once a week, or liquid diet twice a week, fasting or even going to a nature farm 10 days in a year to detox. Is this healthy or not? If not please explain why?

Keeping your body clean fit and healthy just cannot happen over night. Putting anything and everything, fatty foods, aerated drinks, aginomoto and all sorts of preservatives etc. into your body 5 or 6 days a week and then thinking you can wash it all out in 1 or 2 days, is just not logical or fair on your system.

Also getting a sauna, massage and heavy workout once in a way can’t clean out all the muck. There are even places where they use enema or colon wash, etc. saying this will clean you out. It’s absolute nonsense. Having a clean healthy body and beautiful complexion involves no short cuts and is not something you can buy with big money. It is simply commitment, dedication and hard work over a long period of time that really gives you the best results and results that last.

Since the last 5 years I have believed in one principle - You Are What You Eat. I have seen a tremendous change in my own life and have helped 100’s from all over the world to practice and believe in this and change their lives completely. Starvation diets and mono- food strategies, like fruits only, etc. is harmful to the body because they lower your metabolic rate. Most people who practice fasting twice a week find it very difficult to lose weight later as their body motor slows down.

Secondly every time you miss protein in any meal a little muscle tissue is broken down and supplied for the body need. This results in hair fall, wrinkled skin and sagging arms and legs. Every meal must have protein like 1 glass milk or half to one cup dhal/ pulse or an egg or a little non-veg. Thirdly when you don’t eat balanced meals then you develop vitamin, mineral deficiencies, which lowers you body resistance and you keep falling ill.

If you want to permanently become healthy here are the rules:

  1. Never miss a meal- breakfast, lunch and dinner must be eaten every single day.

  2. Every meal must be properly balanced with carbohydrate foods (cereal, rotis, rice etc)
    combined with protein foods (milk/curd, dhal/pulse, egg, poultry, fish etc.) and fruits
    and vegetables to go with them or in-between as snacks.

  3. Whenever possible choose high fiber foods like whole wheat bread, oats, ragi,
    unpolished rice, pulses- channa, rajma, moong sprouts etc. fresh fruits like apple, pear,
    orange, sweetlime, pomegranate and fresh salads.

  4. Everybody from birth to death require 2-3 glasses of milk/curds. Without this we can
    never meet the calcium and protein need of our bodies.

  5. Finally we all need to consume 2-3 liters of water daily. Avoid carbonated drinks.
    Remember each 300 ml of cola contain 10-12 teaspoons sugar and those colours are
    bad for your teeth and complexion.

Last but not the least you need to walk at least 6-7 times a week,20- 30 minutes, to keep your heart pumping well and have that flush and glow in your cheeks. The new way to glow with health is to rebalance your lifestyle and strike the right equilibrium of healthy eating and regular workouts on a long-term basis. Look after yourself always and then treat yourself to the goodies a couple of times a week and you can say good-bye to crazy diets and detox forever.
