Healthy Diet Keeping Jagan Fit!

It is not so easy for anybody to undertake marathon walk for six months, unless one is physically and mentally strong. And to keep one’s body fit, one has to maintain a healthy and balanced diet.

And that is what YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is doing now. Normally, too, Jagan is very careful about his diet and is health-conscious.

Unlike the youth of his age, Jagan does not lead a haphazard life style and consume untimely and unhealthy food. And he doesn’t touch alcohol at all, forget about smoking.

Now that he has embarked on padayatra, Jagan has been maintaining a very disciplined lifestyle.

He gets up at 4.30 am every day, does rigorous physical exercise and yoga for one hour. For his breakfast, he takes just a glass of fruit juice to keep his body light.

The menu for his lunch comprises a pulka with dal and green vegetables. And for dinner, Jagan takes a pulka, dal and green vegetables, besides an egg and milk. That is precisely why he keeps healthy body and can withstand long walks besides speaking loudly for hours.

His father late Y S Rajasekhar Reddy, too, adopted this simple diet formula during his padayatra. Otherwise, he was a good lover of food. He also used to booze a little. Though he used to smoke in his early days, he gave up after becoming a serious politician.

And Jagan’s bête noire Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, too, practices healthy life style even at the age of 68. He gets up early at around 4 am and practises Yoga.

He takes oats for breakfast in the form of upma or dosas. Between breakfast and lunch, he would have a fruit or some dry fruits. For lunch, Naidu would have only millets such  as jowar, bajra, ragi and oats with 2 or 3 vegetables.

In the evening, he would some small snack – either fruits or dry fruits or egg white or soup. And he would have a glass of milk at bed time.

“I strictly follow diet restrictions, which help me keep fit throughout the day. I sleep just for five to six hours day,” he said.
