Inspiring Story Of Delhi Cop Who Lost 46 Kgs In 8 Months By Walking & Changing Diet

Being body positive is one thing. Ignoring your overall health in the name of body positivity is a whole different thing.

While the entire body-positivity movement has done a lot for the representation and acceptance of various kinds of bodies across ethnicities, a part of it has also turned radical where people are indirectly celebrating obesity and underlying health conditions like cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc.

A person can have a fuller body type and be fit. A person can be thin and have several health issues. The main concentration should be on one’s health and not how one looks. Now that we have established this, it’s time to narrate the story of Deputy Commissioner of Police Metro Jitendra Mani from Delhi.

According to NDTV, Jitendra Mani weighed 130 kilograms and suffered from diabetes, high blood pressure and increased cholesterol levels which put his health at high risk. So this year, the cop decided to lose weight and turn his life around for the better. Here are some things that he did.

He aimed for 15,000 steps a day and switched his diet from a high-carbohydrate one to a more nutritious one that focused on fibre, fruits and vegetables.

“I switched from a high-carbohydrate diet of rotis and rice to more nutritious options like soups, salads and fruits,” he revealed.

Just by increasing his daily movement and diet, he was able to lose 46 kilograms of weight and 12 inches off his waist in just 8 months. His cholesterol levels were also lowered drastically.

“When I decided to make a change, I set a goal to walk 4.5 lakh steps every month. In the last 8 months, I walked over 32 lakh steps,” the cop said.

According to Tribune, his efforts were much appreciated by Delhi Police Commissioner, Sanjay Arora, who presented him a certificate on behalf of the Delhi Police during a function.
