Stay fit, feel young. After all, the #HoneyDietIsHere

"Health is Wealth" they say and this perhaps is the biggest reason why we all chase health, aka its  form of wealth. We do all that we do to ensure that we lead a happy and healthy life. Almost every thing in out lives somehow connects to having a good health, be it work, be it family, be it money, be it exercising, be it food, or anything. Everything connect to leading a hale and healthy life.

As the world progresses into more commercial forms of life, we keep forgetting this whole goal. Someone has rightly said, "We spend all our health to gain wealth, and then we spend all out wealth to gain back health". This becomes so relevant in modern times where we live restless lives at a point of time when economics has overtaken the world and we keep calculating out productivity in minutes, and perhaps seconds too. In such a fast paced life, one often forgets to concentrate on several facets of life like family, love, social responsibilities and of course, health. So, what do we do? We often realize this once in a blue moon and start a diet. The world is filled with some gruesome diets like the GM diet, Cigarette diet, Cotton balls diet, Water diet, and so on, which claim that you will attain an instant nirvana on following them. However, neither following these diets is easy nor are the results sustainable. Often, we end up consuming greater volumes of food and break the diet in haste. 

When I got to about the Dabur Honey diet (http://www.daburhoney.com/), I was greatly impressed. Firstly, this doesn't need any additional efforts from us. Its just about replacing some kinds of foods with some other kinds. The honey penetration in our country is very low, despite the fact that it is a great food. In fact, the funniest part of human lives is that good food comes at a great price, and that's perhaps the reason why we end up consuming all the junk fund around us. A tender coconut costs Rs 25-30, a handful of dry fruits easily cost a hundred rupees, and so on. The Dabur honey diet is a wonderful program that insists that we replace the sugar that we consume with honey. The day starts with a spoon of honey with warm water, which is more than enough to add energy to hit the gym or go for a walk or a Yoga class. Pooja Makhija, a health and nutrition expert says that honey has all the properties in it to kick start our day and it helps in ensuring that our taste buds aren't activated for the wrong kind of food.

The website (http://www.daburhoney.com/) provides great deal of details about how this diet is not just simple and easy but also healthy and sustainable. The website has some great tools like a calorie calculator, honey recipes, advice from experts that Michelin star chef Vikas Khanna, tips on fitness, and the most important being the 3 step diet planner. This is a great initiative from Dabur that caters to the current generation which has started becoming more cautious about health.

I have always heard that there are 2 kinds of food. The first kind are the ones that are meant for the mouth, for the taste buds in other words. These are food like sweets, junk food, etc. which make us feel elated. These food should only be consumed in such quantities that they meet the needs of the mouth. The other kind of food are food for the stomach. They may not great taste but are great for our health (like green leafy vegetables, etc), and these must be consumed for the stomach irrespective of what the mouth feels like. Often we end in trouble when we feed the stomach with food meant for the mouth and vice versa. Honey is one such great food that falls in both the categories and thus it helps in a great way to achieve the goals in our fitness schedule.

Check out and explore the benefits of this food, and get started on your journey to be fit with a sustainable course or laid out plan which you can practice all life.
