Dietitian Lavleen @ Diet Insight™ (Chandigarh based nutrition expert and winner of title ‘Best Dietitian in tricity’ at the Global Lifestyle Awards 2015) believes that healthy eating is not about strict nutrition philosophies, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love.
Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, and keeping yourself as healthy as possible – all which can be achieved by learning some nutrition basics and incorporating them in way that works for you.
Just as our brand name “diet insight™” suggests, I strive to promote healthy living, fitness and wellness by providing you an insight into a personalized balanced diet that is going to match your lifestyle. “You are what you eat! Yes, to be fit and healthy you need to eat good food.”
These days, there are a lot of quick fix solutions available in the form of pills, diets, strenuous exercises that bet you will lose weight very quickly and that too without much effort. However, a lot of these so called miracle programs are not feasible as they have not been scientifically proven and they are from the time when the meaning of diet used to include starvation, heavy exercises and even strong medicines which had hazardous chemicals.
But guess what? Those times are gone!
