Do you agree that people’s perception about fitness has evolved for the better?
Yes, I agree. I’m happy that people’s perceptions have now changed. Everyone is more aware of their health and fitness. It is not about being skinny but leading a healthy life – working out and eating right – which makes you look and feel good. Being fit not only helps you to eat healthy but also helps you adapt a healthy lifestyle.

Use a journal to track your progress and jot down any breakthroughs you may have – push ups, triceps dips, jumping jacks, suryanamaskars, chest lifts, sit ups. You can buy a TheraBand and do lots of free hand exercises.
Vegetarians often complain about optimum protein intake Any tips for them?
Most people, especially vegetarians, think they don’t get enough protein. According to me, protein is quite over-hyped. People go crazy about how much protein they should take. Does your body really require that much protein? Are we working out that hard that we really need to compensate with the best protein? There are a lot of great vegetarian options like paneer, dal, sprouts, nuts, tofu, broccoli, seeds, dairy products like dahi. Even protein shakes or sauces like edamame can be a supplement to meet your protein requirements.
The most common diet and fitness mistakes people make, according to you?
I find people doing fad diets all the time and they set themselves up for failure. We need to make good food choices, not follow a diet.
