Mumbai, the maximum city, is known to drive people up the wall. Crazy deadlines, easy access to junk food, absolute dependence on public transport and pollution are a few reasons why all of us start facing health problems at a young age.
The answer to all this, naturally, would be exercise. But where’s the time to do that? A young professional in Mumbai generally wakes up at 7 am, travels for an hour and a half at least to get to his or her workplace, puts in a minimum 10 hours of work, travels back, and then, if blessed by his clients/bosses, sleeps at about 10 p.m. That’s is there are no festivals, household chores or pesky spouses to be tolerated.
What does that mean? Almost 15 out of the 24 hours, every day, for 6 days a week, a Mumbaikar has to race against the clock, at a pace that will lead to burnout.
Most gym trainers will tell you that what you eat is what you are. The human body is like an engine. The better the quality of the fuel used, the better the performance.
Help is at hand, just in case you lost hope. Hold on to that Vada Pao.
