Festive season is going on. During this time of year, we often end up overeating And overloading on calories.
“What do I eat to stay healthy? Is junk food sometimes just not okay? What about cheat days? If I stop following the dietary guidelines, will I gain weight overnight?” My advice is to make the Dietary Guidelines your default setting for your daily, regular meals and especially for occasions. It’s important to track what you eat because it helps you figure out what you’re doing wrong,” said Ira Trivedi, celebrity elf, and author.
It is difficult to stay away from fried foods, sweets and other unhealthy options because they are delicious. The solution to this problem is to control the parts. We should discipline ourselves during festivals, even when it comes to our favorite junk food. The most important thing to remember is to start small, aim low and work your way up.
The basic principle of the following a Healthy Diet – Fewer refined carbohydrates, enough protein. Special care should be taken to avoid sugar.
Hydration is of utmost importance. We forget to drink water and keep ourselves hydrated. We should take our water bottles to temples and keep drinking water every one to two hours. In addition, you can have lemon or cucumber-containing drinks.
Along with hydrating you, these drinks will also provide you with essential vitamins and minerals. They also help in regulating the alkalinity of the body. Avoid indulging in carbonated and soft drinks as they only provide empty calories And no other nutritional benefits.
We all prepare delicious sweets and food items at home using refined sugar. However, by simply replacing refined sugar with dates, jaggery or honey, we can make our sweets more wholesome and healthy.
In addition, we can also switch refined flour To make sweets and snacks with whole wheat flour. “Make sure you completely avoid using dalda or vegetable ghee to prepare breakfast,” Trivedi said.
If you are craving puris, don’t assume that they are a healthy option. Instead, opt for chapatis and parathas that not only taste good but are also filling. You can also add fenugreek (fenugreek) or pudina (mint) to give a healthy twist to your chapatis.
keep snacks handy
Carry a snack box full of nuts and seeds so you can count on them to get your daily dose of omega-3 fatty acids whenever you feel hungry. Also, whenever you feel hungry, you can take your favorite fruits and eat them. These are the safest and healthiest options when it comes to the diet to follow during the festival.
don’t forget to exercise
Take 20-30 minutes to walk. During the festival, you should practice yoga or walk briskly every day. It helps you burn the extra calories you’ve consumed and will maintain your weight and body fat.
“Following these diet tips for a long time will help you maintain your weight, improve health and enjoy festive parties,” Trivedi said.
