How did the turning point come about?

Dr Kareena says about her workout routine, I do cardio, strength training. Apart from this I also do zumba and yoga once a week. The only secret to staying fit that I’ve learned in my weight loss journey is to stay active throughout the day. Do something other than your regular exercise routine.
How do you motivate yourself?
It is the people who come to me that keep me motivated. I always feel that I can’t give fitness advice to others if I’m not in good health. Besides, you should love your weight loss journey. Doctors say that only by staying focused can we achieve our goals.
Being overweight leads to many problems
Dr Kareena says that being overweight causes many problems. The problems I had to deal with included feeling sick in the body, emotional trauma, many physical problems like lifestyle disorders, nutritional deficiencies.
What changed in lifestyle
I have learned to say ‘no’ to junk food, says Kareena. Don’t hesitate to say no to people, advises doctors. Make regular exercise a part of your routine. Eat fruits, vegetables and most importantly be happy.
What did you experience on your weightloss journey?
Dr. Kareena shared that she learned from her weight loss journey that you need to stick with the process and believe in it. Also, lose weight the right way and eliminate those things from your lifestyle that are playing with your health.
