Dr. Ziene Mottiar, School of Hospitality Management and Tourism, DIT

I asked Ziene as a friend and someone I have huge respect for how important being fit and healthy was to her…

Her answers:

“Being healthy is so important because it changes your whole outlook and when you feel healthy you are positive about everything!”

“A fitness/health tip: You have to do something you enjoy to get fit, if it is a chore you won’t stick at it. In terms of eating I don’t think long term you can deprive yourself so if people around you are eating nice things eat a substitute. (For example my current favourite instead of ice-cream is frozen banana blended with a drop of milk – it tastes just like ice-cream and there is no feeling guilty afterwards!) “
