In my youth, I took pride in this lean frame of mine. However, after I entered holy matrimony and my body refused to look happy and glowing, I started getting questioned as to whether my spouse beat me up if I ate an extra morsel? I hit rock bottom. I dreaded meeting people, as I knew their first query on meeting me would be, why I was so thin! So, in the faint hope that gorging on all sorts of fatty food will push up my weight, I began overindulging. But, sadly, the weighing scale failed to show any change! Broken hearted, I decided to accept the fact that eat what I may, I was stuck looking waifish for life.
Around that time, I took up a job, where my colleagues looked at me in awe, as I would eat anything and everything and not gain a gram! And, they… they would survive for days on end on boxes full of salads! They joined gyms, went on all sorts of diets, in the hope that someday they would fit into their old blouses, but, in vain! And, that was when I realised how blessed I was! That was when I realised the importance of a balanced healthy diet that included every food group, and the disadvantages of crash diets that offered zero nutrients to the body, leaving us malnourished and fatigued.
Over the years, I worked on my diet, included healthy, wholesome food that left me feeling satiated as well as well-nourished. It had a positive effect on my health and I lost the waif look and gained a healthy glow! I began taking pleasure in the fact that I not only had a naturally slim (and a bit curvy) figure, but also a healthy system from within. And, that was all thanks to my revamped diet consisting of three meals per day, peppered with healthy snacks at regular intervals, which ensured I never went hungry.
My body gets a continuous supply of fuel to keep it going through the day, and my various activities make sure I get ample exercise that keeps me fit. Yes, I do indulge in the sin-foods every once in a while. I mean, life has to have some spice, isn’t it? But, I make sure I don’t compromise on the daily intake of good nutritious food, because that is what will stand me in good stead. I need to take care of myself now, so that I stay fit and fine as a senior citizen!
My queen-size breakfast of oats with curds and dry fruits, and sweetened with the tastiest of rich golden honey, keeps me charged up throughout the day!I follow it up with a healthy lunch and a light dinner to ensure a continuous supply of energy for my body. I love adding honey to my fruit salads, and wheat bread sandwiches, and at times to my vanilla ice cream, too! My Honey Diet has made a lot of difference to my overall health and I can see that my face has attained a healthy glow, which I lacked all those years ago!
Young girls, ladies, women…all of you who switch over to crash diets in the hope of shedding kilos and getting a svelte form, I plead to you to opt for a healthier diet, instead, and adopt a positive attitude in life. It will not only get you the desired form, but will also keep you healthy in your later years. Haven’t you heard the saying, “As you sow, so shall you reap”?
