Milind Soman said walking for hundreds of kilometers was not a difficult task if one had the mental strength to do it. ‘Fitness knows no limit,’ he said.
“One does not require a lot of space or a gym to become fit. They can become fit without supplements and energy drinks,” he said.
Nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar said we should stick to simple food. “We should not lose health, but weight. We should eat home-made food and avoid packaged food. This is the secret to good health,” she said.
