My main motivation for striving to be fit is because I meditate for long hours, and being fit helps to stabilise me physically and improves my focus. I also strive to be functional and take part in any activity efficiently.

Diet: I do not count my macros (the macronutrients, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates). I don’t have a favourite food and probably consume only half the amount of protein compared with the athletes featured in this column.
