Plan a Healthy Diwali!

Diwali is undoubtedly the festival of lights and rich dishes! Diet and festival don't go hand in hand. And if you are trying to follow a strict diet around the same time, be ready to make some changes for the better. Your positive attitude and determination towards weight loss can make this festival a colorful, fat-free, happy and guilt-free one!

Here are some Healthy Diwali Mantras:

  1. Make your food and fitness compatible buddies. Make sure you work out on the festival day too.
  2. Replace sugar with honey and jaggery, but use it in moderation. Try and cut down on the number of sweet dishes.
  3. Substitute regular milk/rich curd with low fat milk and skimmed curd.
  4. Remain hydrated throughout the day. Do not forget to drink water before you start your meal.
  5. Eat your meal slowly and don't binge.
  6. Eat small, regular healthy snacks like salads & nuts like walnuts, almonds, pistachio etc. as they are loaded with generous amounts of fat, protein & fiber.
  7. Eat fresh fruits to curb your cravings for sweets.
  8. Try making some low-calorie, low-fat creative recipes this Diwali.
  9. Include more grilled, baked and roasted recipes.
  10. Use minimum amounts of oil and ghee. Replace it with olive oil.

Give your diet and health a thought before you pop that sweet into your mouth. Eat in moderation and enjoy the festival of lights!
