Today's Bookoholics event with the celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar was completely different than usual author reader meets. The session was quite an enlightening and interactive one, men and a lot of ladies whole heartedly became a part of this and the meet's success could be measured with over filled chairs and people eagerly hearing her out.
The direction in which the session went was "Breaking the Myths", she made some really bold statements such as "You don't exercise to eat good food, you eat good food to exercise" and thereby giving us power foods (ghee, coconut, rice) which drive us towards exercising not because of the fat quotient but because of their pharmacological effects.
She also emphasized on quitting box food and going back to the basic food habits to keep the stubborn fat away and be fit. She firmly believed that bringing small changes in daily routine could bring big changes in the waist line. Also she launched the Gujarati version of her book "Don't lose out, Work out" wearing a beautiful magenta saree draped in Gujarati style.
This was followed by an open question-answer session which was actually the highlight of the whole meet. Almost people from every age group, teenage girls, to young ladies to middle aged men asked her questions and clarified their personal queries. All in all every member present there took back quite a lot of knowledge, and will surely be doing some exercise (and not just morning walks) to turn themselves into healthy and fit beings they always desired to be.
