Almost 90 years ago — decades before the more recent interest in health, diet and exercise — Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah, Aga Khan III, wrote this short but lovely article on keeping healthy opening it with the remark that “all my life I have been keenly interested in the kindred subjects of exercise and diet, and their influence on the general health and fitness of the human body.”

His advice — which could have been written today with little if any change — is concise, practical, at least half a century ahead of its time and worthy of everyone’s attention.
