On a weekend I received a mail from one of my old friend who was struggling with his health and putting on so much weight as he was working in a corporate world and therefore he has to sit for long hour on chair to do his projects which he get in his office. I remembered the golden school days when both of us were fit as one can imagine, played all kind of sports like football, volleyball etc.
Later on he went to work in corporate world and I became a health coach to help people with their struggles to achieve good health. In my perspective health in not visiting doctor on regular basis and taking up pills on regular basis to be able to live properly, in fact health is keeping yourself so fit that you don’t need such pills and you feel energetic throughout the day regardless the type of job or business you are into. Good health can be maintained by consuming the healthy food and avoiding the drinks or food which degrade our health. So the diet plays an important role on how healthy you are and you don’t fall sick easily.
Some study refers that in today’s world approximately 70 % of adult Indians are suffering from type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. These problems contribute to heart stroke and loss of eye sight in a period of a few years. So these problems are the foundation stones of major diseases.
Diet is most important in today’s world
The word diet first appeared in English in the 13th century. Its original meaning was the same as in modern English, “habitually taken food and drink.” But diet was used in another sense too in the Middle and early modern English periods to mean “way of living.” This is, in fact, the original meaning of diet’s Greek ancestor diaita, which is derived from the verb diaitasthan, meaning “to lead one’s life.” In Greek, diaita, had already come to be used more specifically for a way of living prescribed by a physician, a diet, or other regimen.
So diet refers to the way of life/lifestyle which one should follow to keep himself healthy and fine so that he can live a good life. A diet can be followed without much effort by following a certain set of rules as what food to consume and at what time it should be consumed and what food is not to be consumed. Various researches suggest that diet is up to 90% important and only 10% exercise play the vital role.
