I often wondered as a
child as to why people made such a hue and cry over people being Fat and
obese? Never did I know that one day I myself will be dealing with all
the words like Calories, Fitness, Gym and Weight loss!
Sometimes I wonder why we blame ourselves? The entire humankind is made
to think about food as something they associate with happiness!! In
India or anywhere in the world, the issue of eating right, right from
the young age is never encouraged! We have all wrong customs of eating
sweets for all occasions, and sometimes when we are feeling depressed
too! Whether it is offering Prasad to the god or making somebody happy,
calling over for food, a sweet has to be made in the house for every
occasion and eaten in abundance!
The problem is not of making sweets and eating them, but in expending
those calories by exercising! All of us are very keen on eating sweets,
ice creams, desserts but very reluctant and skeptical about exercising
or walking our way to good health!.
I want all the mothers who want a “bright and light” future for
their kids, to emphasize the importance of good health and right eating
at the young age!
We should encourage the kids to eat more of Fruits than chocolates, more
of Vegetables, Sprouts, Brown breads than those high calorie junk Fast
foods and more & more Water, which will cleanse the system regularly
than Pepsi or Cokes which chokes the system!!
I am sure, if we take care of the food intake and make proper food
choices at the right age, there will be no need for gyms and diet
counselors for the future generation!
