Dr. Trushna Bhatt, an expert in food and nutrition, reviews the popular Whole30 diet book series. Here's her take on how the diet can work with an Indian lifestyle. Given our fast-paced lifestyles, it's definitely difficult to eat healthy. The surge in preference for convenience foods and packaged eatables plus the stress and environmental pollution makes us more prone to health issues. This is where clean eating and fresh foods become more important than ever. If we follow a healthy Indian diet along with the exercise routines that our ancestors practised, we may become fitter versions of ourselves. Sure, our ancestors had cleaner air to breathe; purer water to drink; and fresher, low calorie food to eat. While we cannot control the environmental pollutants we are exposed to, switching to smarter diets is definitely do-able. As an increased number of people realize this, there is a greater focus on hearty, fresh, healthier foods that form a balanced diet. Such demand has ushered in diet programs that scrutinize basic, minimally processed, fresh foods, and Whole30 is one such example.
