After 50 years, hardly anyone would think to do so, but well-known fitness freak Milind Somen could not live without sharing his wonderful experience on Instagram. According to him, whether the distance is 400 km, 100 m, it doesn’t matter, if anything matters, it’s just the effort. I tried and achieved my goal.
50 km distance covered even after weak immunity and fever
During a live conversation on Instagram with athlete Ayesha Bilmoria, she told that Unity was a good concept. Although I did not take any training for this and I was running 30 kms a week. I had a fever of 104 due to low immunity and mild symptoms of bronchitis during the run, but the recovery was so quick that I was able to get up again within 24 hours and run 50 kilometers a day. All this is possible only if you are adopting a healthy lifestyle regularly.

He also shared the secret of his workout in this live chat. He told that fitness should not mean biceps or triceps. Fitness means being able to do anything at any time. He told that I do micro workouts. Between 30 seconds to 3 minutes at a time.
And I work out for about 15-20 minutes a day. It takes me 7 minutes to do 30 Surya Namaskars daily. I do 60 pushups a minute and am pushing myself to come up to 62.

Nothing is better than ghee and jaggery
Even though Milind Somen abstains from sugar but does not give up eating ghee, jaggery, banana, mango. To say, all of these contain a good amount of sugar, because the body breaks all these down into glycogen, which is necessary for the body to function. He said that I think all these things are better for me. I love cashew nuts, so never forget to add them to khichdi.
Only healthy things on the dinner plate
Milind’s diet secret
Looking at his diet, it seems that he does not follow strict rules for diet. He told that I never measure food, nor do I ever count calories. I have never followed any special diet in my life. I eat as much as I can eat.
I recently had a taste for chocolate like 7-8 years ago. The situation was such that I used to eat 1.25 kg of chocolate. But gradually I kept away from sugar in my diet, avoiding non-vegetarian food. Now vegetarian food is my priority. I eat non-vegetarian only for taste. One might not believe it, but I have 3 kg of fruit every morning. 5-6 mangoes, 6 bananas are included in my diet.
