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?
“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!) “
