Be “Nutri- Smart” this DIWALI

Diwali is here and so is the time to have loads of  “safe” fun with family and friends and indulge in yummy food that is found all around you.

Lets look at how to eat “Smart” this Diwali and stay away from that “weight gain guilt”:

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GIVE UP ON PARTIES, GOOD FOOD AND DRINKS THIS DIWALI-  INSTEAD- BE SMART ABOUT IT

1. S: See every option laid out to you at a party and Select only the 2 you love the most. Remember you will have more parties to go to so make sure to control the portions of those two items.

2. M: “Mithai”- try to eat the homemade ones as much as possible and give away the boxed mithai that you receive. Remember portion control????? yup, again only have 1 piece a day and that too by itself as a snack.

3. A: Act as if you have a drink in you glass but do not drink at every party you go to. Hope you get the point ;)- “SUBSTITUTE”

4. R: Rest: Rest is very essential for our body. It is shown that lack of sleep can disrupt our body’s metabolic functions. Some studies have also shown that when people lack sleep, they tend to eat more. So, if you know that you are going for a late night party, make sure you take out time to give your body the rest it deserves.

5. T: “TRAIN”- Train your body, train your muscles.  Do not skip exercise during the festive season. This is the time you need it the most. Just modify your fitness routine. If you are used to working out everyday for 1 hour, at least try to workout for 20- 30 mins 3 times that week.

REMEMBER:

A Harvard Medical School study found that 1 hour of physical exercise can add 2 hours to your life.

SO, BE SAFE, BE HEALTHY AND BE “SMART” THIS FESTIVE SEASON.

All the best 🙂

HAPPY DIWALI
