Nutrition and wellness expert Rujuta Diwekar, who has helped celebrities such as Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Saif Ali Khan, Varun Dhawan and Shahid Kapoor achieve healthy body goals, says she managed to achieve this feat only by suggesting local, traditional food to them and not some fancy customised diet. A vocal supporter of eating traditional food, sourced locally, Rujuta shared some of her tips on how to get a healthy body, mind and soul, at FICCI FLO Amritsar chapter’s first live offline event — Counting Miles, Not Calories.

“I have never believed in over-complicated diets, fancy foods that are sourced from thousands of miles away, processed and packed to lose weight. As a matter of fact, losing body weight is entirely a different concept than losing fat weight,” she said. Most of her sessions on social media platforms advise a blend of traditional, local food wisdom and modern nutritional science for a healthy body and mind, best reflected through the mantra — eat local, think global.

“Confidence is not seeking external validation for your body,” said Diwekar. “Following the food advice at home by grannies and exercise is what helps one stay fit. “Good food is what our traditional proverbs and sayings boast about. There is a need to patronise local food,” she said.

The one to ask people to bring ghee back into our diet, Rujuta said it helps in getting natural glow and exemplary physique. “Be grateful for you have on your plate,” she said. On being asked to name the ‘superfoods’ of Punjab, she said dal and rice, rose-flavoured water and lassi are the ‘superfoods’ that are undervalued by people.
