Diwali is over and so is overeating. It`s time to detox your body from all the extra calories added to the system. An easy detox regime that we can use in our daily life and stay hale and hearty
Festivities are the time of gorging on food breaking free from all the diet plans. Fried food loaded in calories are force freed wrapped in love and care of the relatives and often wreak havoc on our immune system.
Once festivities loses its glory, it is time for a reality check. We have already put on a few kilograms and the face appears dull. The festive clothes brought no longer fit in. You repent why you make the same excuse of festivities and lose out on all the changes you painstakingly made in your body pre festivals to look pretty as a picture.
Getting make to your sheen is not that tough though. A detox regime coupled a bit of discipline and some work can get back your curves. All you need to understand is your system needs intense cleansing. We have listed a few clean eating and lifestyle technique that will help you detoxify your system when the festive light is packed up.
The basic lemon water regime daily
This very common health tip gets better with time. Lemon is an excellent anti-oxidant and when taken with warm water cleanse your system like nothing else. Consume this always in empty stomach. If you get acidic to lemon water, consume it after a biscuit. It will essentially flush out all toxins and will facilitate metabolism, remove symptoms of indigestion. Add ginger and cumin seed powder to the lemon juice and see how you lose your weight fast. A spoonful of honey can also be added instead of sugar to make it remove the sourness of the lemon.
Fluids all day
Consume as many healthy drinks as you can. Go for seasonal fresh fruit juices, buttermilk, green tea. They are the best ways to flush out the toxins in your body and keep you hydrated day long. They are also appetite killers, so you need on starve from not getting to consume carbs.
A bow full of freshly boiled veggies
Raw vegetable or parboiled like cucumber, carrots, radish, tomatoes, onions and fruits like oranges, papaya, apples or other seasonal fluids are a great way to stay full and not add a carb to your diet. You can season them with petter and virgin olive oil and egg boiled eggs. Avacado though pricey are very good for the detox diet. This meal is favourite of the Bollywood diva Shila Shetty
Processed food is a no-no
We know Maggie is a saviour for college dorms and workaholics leaving away from family. The noodles that we consider as just boiled is a friend and has unsaturated fat that needs weeks to burn. Stay away from such processed food available in the market and eat home cooked simple food. Chips and burgers will wait but tour system will not. Say no to the leftover barfi and instead go for a piece of fruit. Eliminate all fried foods like puris, pakodis, samosas, etc. from your diet. Choose brown rice and unpolished dal, oats as they contain fibres and check weight gain. Consume food in small portions in regular intervals. Do not fast for a long time and overeat eat at a go.
Concentrate on your meal
Eating while TV on often increases the tendency of over-eating. You might need another serving while your favourite programme continues to play on. Turn off the TV and sit down with your family to enjoy a meal. You tend to swallow your food without chewing it first. Nutritionists opine that breaking the food into finer parts makes digestion easy and your food is not converted into fats.
Detox strategies will work only if you take it seriously as a part of your lifestyle. Often fitness regime falls apart as participants lose the vigour to continue it religiously. Do not mindlessly monitor your weight daily. It is a long time plan and be patient to see the end results.
