Maharashtra state is having many beautiful forts for hiking & enjoying nature. Are you planning to go trekking for first time or after many years? Wait! To enjoy all the nature by climbing these forts, one need some level of physical fitness.
Unless you are doing regular exercise & not overweight, I recommend following before you try any trek or hiking.
Obesity and overweight is hurdle between you and nature. If you are overweight and willing to lose weight, I believe in low carb diet way; be like Paleolithic man. Human species evolved since millions of years by hunting, eating fruits and vegetables but no grains or sugar. In last ten thousand years with invention of agriculture our food drastically changed to grains (carbohydrates – sugar). “During several million years of evolution, early humans only had access to low-starch high-cellulose carbohydrate plant food. But we learned how to grow high-starch low-cellulose carbohydrate… which we call wheat, rice, corn, potato, etc.” – This is the problem. Steve Gibson is a computer researcher and a smart scientist. He has done good research on this subject and presented his thoughts in a podcast. It’s a new healthy lifestyle.
You can listen to podcast in MP3 format to understand this new lifestyle and science behind human biology.
