How has Covid impacted the dietary needs of an individual?

Due to the pandemic, people have realised the importance of a healthy lifestyle. They have understood that it is important to have a strong immune system. Now, they know the power of several superfoods and they have started to include it in their diets.

With the pandemic, we have gotten several requests from people who were not only looking to boost their immunity but also manage their overall health. Covid actually worked in our favour and we were able to help out them.

Since most of us are working from home and not doing much physical activity, what exercises would you recommend?

The biggest problem is living a sedentary lifestyle during this time. Therefore, it is important to get after every 30 minutes and just take a quick walk. This way you can disengage your eyes and refresh yourself. This is not only for your physical health but it is also important for your health.

Other than this, a person should walk for 30 - 60 minutes every day. Along with this, we recommend some strengthening exercises for your muscles.

As you know, keto is a trend right now. So, do you actually recommend it? Is it really beneficial?

It is definitely a medically recommended diet. It is highly recommended if you are suffering from diabetes or epilepsy. However, if you are planning to go for this, it is necessary to look at your blood parameters beforehand and it should be done under expert supervision only.

What are the ways that a person can assess their health at home?

Health is something that comes in two formats. One is obviously body health. Second is your mental health. So, when we are talking about health.

So, to assess your health at home, the first thing you need to do is assess your BMI.

What kind of seeds do you recommend for daily consumption?

Seeds have surely become popular due to their health benefits. However, a person should consider feasibility and affordability. For any kind of nuts and seeds, there are also alternatives that can give you the same benefits.

In fact, all kinds of seeds including chia, sunflower, pumpkin, etc are good sources of proteins and Omega - 3 fatty acids. So, it is recommended to add all of those in your diet.

The best way to consume these is to blend a fruit, a vegetable along with some nuts and seeds into a smoothie and drink it as your breakfast everyday.

What is the best way to detox in a healthy manner?

Detox depends upon what you are going through. In our detox programme, we remove all processed foods and recommend eating only what is natural. This means you can’t consume rice, bread, chapati, sugar, dairy, and many more. We usually recommend starting the day with oil pulling.

However, it is customised according to a person. Also, it is not only about the food but overall habits.

People also turn towards juice cleanse which is not recommended by me as it leads to a lot of muscle loss. I usually recommend adding nuts and seeds.
