Fitness is a way of life , not a sport: Anil Kapoor
Mumbai, Sept 9 (UNI) Terming fitness to be a way of life, not a sport, Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor today advocated exercising, eating, living and working right to maintain a right body.
He was speaking at the launch of Dr Anjali Mukherjee's book 'Healing with Food', which was attended by other celebrities like choreographer Shaimak Davar, author and food critic Rashmi Uday Singh and Dr Jamuna Pai here yesterday.
''Even though I am not here I promote this book to anyone who wants good health,'' Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh said in a message, read out on the occasion.
''Many years of clinical practice translates into this book.
More and more people are falling prey to various chronic conditions related to stress and modern lifestyle. Food in it's natural form is healing and can restore health in a sick person.
State of health is a commitment you make to yourself and your body.
People used to come to me and I would prescribe them a healthy diet by which their migraine, acidity and asthma has decreased,'' author Dr Anjali Mukherjee said.
''My book talks of anti-ageing, a process which Anil Kapoor has already done. Different foods have different nutritional value.
For example, Maida which has zero value nutrition, is unfortunately still used as breakfast,'' she said.
The book consists of chapters on ailments like acne, arthritis, cholestrol, depression, high blood pressure, insomnia, osteoporosis, stress, obesity, and varicose veins amongst many others.
''Anjali taught me how to eat sensibily. I used to eat junk food as a result I used to get migraines and acidity. But after following her diet my acidity and migraine has reduced,'' Shaimak Davar said.
The book gives insight into health and many complex diseases in a holistic manner. It has chapters on introduction to health, detoxification, aging, and immunity boosters among other things.
Anjali Mukherjee has devoted three chapters to beauty through health, healthy hair and 'The Mind and Body connection'.
