RITIKA: ONE FITNESS AND LIFESTYLE ADVICE YOU WOULD LIKE TO GIVE TO OUR READERS
Anisa: I would say don’t compare your routine to other people’s. Everyone’s fitness ability varies as well as dietary needs. You can’t replicate one person’s plan for someone else. I would say make sure your not deficient in any vitamins, try and eat fresh foods, and cook as much as possible, as opposed to take out meals. Try and minimise sugar, because it can cause excess inflammation, and other health related diseases. And just try to move, doing whatever you enjoy, if you can about thrice a week, especially considering we are more stationary than used to be.
