If one of you ladies, finds yourself contemplating a social group, where you can share your outcry regarding the GM diet and why it doesn't work, then Simra Khan already has a solution built for you, with 'Thinspired by Simra.' It is a woman only wellness group on Facebook, where many young women share their weight loss journeys, getting motivation and learning a plethora of tips and tricks from fellow members on how to sustain 'good health' in the long run. Star Lifestyle took the time to speak to the leader of the tribe – Simra Khan, about her group, general nutrition facts and appropriate diets to wellness during the pandemic.
Visit The Daily Star's Facebook page for today's session of Lifestyle Talkies at 7:30PM for the full interview.
What made you venture into the field of nutrition and wellness?
I believe people should cherish their bodies and take care of it through nutrition adjustments and exercise. This very belief has encouraged me to venture into the field of nutrition and wellness. Through my Facebook group – Thinspired by Simra, I have been able to inspire a significant number of members to incorporate "clean eating" into their daily diets.
Some people might think clean eating refers to boring food; I am an advocate against the misconception. Clean eating can be quite flavoursome and yet, extremely nutritious. Another purpose that keeps me motivated to continue working in this field are the health-related success stories shared by the members of my group.
The fact that I have been able to help so many women, and become an important part of their lives – their weight loss journey encourages me to soldier on.
We all find ourselves dawdling with the idea of a healthy lifestyle, having a hard time to even begin the process. What is your suggestion for taking the leap?
We all need that extra bit of reinforcement to commit ourselves to a brand-new lifestyle. I have seen that most people already have the knowledge, yet they struggle to adapt.
To these people, I want to say that the main reason behind the dawdling is a lack of determination – once you overcome that, the rest becomes a walk-in-the-park.
