Tanya Agarwal’s infectious energy crackles over the telephone and her passion for life shines through when she speaks about her journey. We have discovered yet another gem in the woman behind the brilliantly curated blog: wellthyfit.com, which is a basic extension of her belief that health is the only everlasting wealth.

Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I’ve ever known -  Chuck Palahniuk ...and who is this everyone? People you meet on an everyday basis? Teachers? Friends?  Foes and enemies, or, is it just your own older version that you’ve outgrown and triumphed over, a superior of your former self.
