There are so many pertinent aspects of one’s life that one simply cherishes. Something similar is the case with chef Maria Goretti who talked about a few things that she loves including food, being fit, and being grateful. In a note on Instagram, Maria said, “There are a few things that I love…I love food…And I love being fit…”
She also shared a list.
“I will share what works “for me”,” she added.
1. Drink about 2-3 liters of water a day
2. Eat plenty of vegetables
3. Finish your last meal by 7 pm
4. Don’t starve
5. If you can do a full body cleanse once in a year, it’s a bonus
6. Do some form of exercise that strengthens your muscles at least 3 times a week
7. Keep your nose out of everyone’s business
8. Be kind
9. Give thanks
10. Get plenty of sleep
“So a part of my fit body and very good metabolism is thanks to my genes, the rest is all me…As a chef, I am always trying out new food, new restaurants, travelling and learning new recipes. I have always enjoyed good food…” she recollected.
She also spoke about how a few years ago when she hurt her knee and was forced to stop running…”I had to find a new way with exercise and food to balance it out…”.
“Well, we all have different bodies and different metabolisms. One size of anything does not fit all…So find what makes you feel good at the end of the day…And have a lovely weekend…P.S. Live a mad fun-filled, fulfilled life…”
Instagrammers were praised for her commitment.
“7,8,9 best,” said actor Dia Mirza in the comments section, while another user wrote, “Beautiful list, thank you for sharing, I love the one that says keep your nose out of other people’s business”.

On compassion and gratitude, Maria recently opened up about how we often forget to forgive ourselves. “We hold ourselves responsible for so many things. Maybe because I did this, this happened. Because sometimes we need to say, ‘Okay, I forgive me.’ You need to just do that,” she said.
Maria said that it’s an everyday thing and nothing changes in one day. She added, “But I think every day a little bit makes a big difference.”
