Nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar highlighted the importance of consuming ghee for better health. She was speaking during the Fit India Dialogue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other health influencers to celebrate the first anniversary of the Fit India Movement
“You will not believe that in the US, how to pronounce ghee was the most searched thing which means people are talking about it,” said Diwaker, who has clients including Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, during her session with PM Modi
To highlight the importance of fitness, more so during the COVID-19 pandemic, PM Modi is interacting with fitness influencers, including cricketer Virat Kohli and fitness enthusiast Milind Soman, during a nation-wide online Fit India Dialogue.
The Dialogue is being organized to celebrate the first anniversary of the Fit India Movement.
Rujuta also said that while trying to lose weight, people usually lose health and that is the problem.
“We don’t get the proper sleep at night because we run after losing weight. In India, Roti (Indian bread), vegetables, rice, and pulses along with ghee is the specialty. In the time like IPL, if men can also help women in the kitchen than automatically their health will be fit and fine,” she said.
Giving an example, she asked PM Modi, “I am sure your mother would be asking if you have taken Haldi (Turmeric) and all. Also when you were a child, she must be saying that don't count how many rotis (Indian bread) you are eating and chew properly.”
Last year, the Fit India Movement saw enthusiastic participation of people from all walks of life and from across the country. The Fit India Freedom Run, Cyclothon, Fit India Week, Fit India School Certificate, and various other programs saw the combined participation of over three crore people.
