What’s the difference between being healthy and being fit?

The table compares the levels of health to one’s financial status. Everyone should aim to be at Level 3. Being fit does not mean you will never be sick. It just means that if you do fall sick, you will bounce back faster. It also means less medical costs.

Fitness requires effort. The graph below explains how more effort is needed to maintain peak fitness as we age. After the age of 30, our fat mass increases and muscles decrease. Excess body fat or obesity (> 20 and > 30 for men and women respectively) increases our risk for diseases. That’s the main reason why sickness/disease is often seen with ageing.

Fitness is a measure of your performance on the following components.  You need to fairly meet all 5 to call yourself “FIT”

The 5 components that make up total fitness are:

  •     Cardiovascular Endurance
    •     Muscular Strength
    •     Muscular endurance
    •     Flexibility
    •     Body Composition (Fat: Muscle)

There is not a one size fits all diet. Picking up a diet which one came across on social media or because it worked for someone is dangerous. Genetics, family history, diagnosis, sustainability and more factors influence what is the best diet for an individual.

A diet that has all the nutrients as per YOUR body’s 24 hour requirements and helps you to achieve your health and fitness goals is a BALANCED DIET.

Dieticians use principles of biochemistry, physiology and genetics to understand how nutrients affect the human body. They can:

  1. Plan a diet as per your health and fitness goals.
  2. Offer healthy substitutes
  3. Provide easy recipes if pressed for time.
  4. Facilitate behavioural change and motivate.
  5. Monitor progress.

Similarly an exercise plan is like a prescription which must include a combination of cardio, weight training and flexibility based on your desired goals: general fitness, recreational or professional sports. It should factor history of injuries, accessibility to equipments, time availability and medical history.

Exercise is for improving your physical performance and not for burning calories. It helps maintain muscle while losing weight.

Together a synchronised diet and exercise plan helps you remain lean, improves your blood parameters, prevents or cures illness, makes you stronger, faster and sharper. In short, it moves you from being sick to fit.

Mental wellness is an an important component of overall fitness.
