Eat Healthy, Lose Weight !
Since my friends have been constantly asking me for a post related to natural way to diet and lose weight, here I am posting another article on weight loss.
- Breakfast is the most important meal in a day. It stores all the energy that you require for the whole day. You can have a fruit, some sprouts and a glass of skimmed milk, for a good breakfast.It has been said that you should "Eat Breakfast like a King, eat Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper". Breakfast replenishes the cells of the brain and aids in better thinking and concentration. A good breakfast prevents binge eating during the day.
- Ayurveda says that our stomach is divided into 3 compartments.When we eat, we should fill one portion of the stomach with food, the next portion with water and leave the 3rd portion of the stomach empty. We should always remember this golden rule whenever we eat our lunch.Have a low carb lunch.Indians eat more rice during the lunch, which has be avoided for controlling weight.
- Go to bed only after 3 hours of having dinner.If we go to sleep soon after having dinner, metabolism will not occur properly and hence may lead to weight gain. It is better if you plan your daily routine and set a time, like 7 O' clock after which you will not have food at night. Remember to eat the smallest meal during the night, for better metabolism.
Say 'Yes' to water
- Drink lots of water, at least 8 glasses per day. Drink more water in the morning and afternoon and drink lesser during the night.Replace sodas, diet sodas, sweetened and non sweetened beverages with plain water. If you drink one soft drink a day, you are 30 percent more close to Obesity. So drink water whenever you feel like having soft drinks.
- Ayurveda says it is good for the body to have alcohol in limited levels.Here I am not endorsing the consumption of alcohol by any means, only stating a fact. Moderate use of alcohol is found to lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases by 50 percent; notwithstanding the fact that overuse of alcohol will lead to adverse effects. 3 glasses of unsweetened wine or beer a week will help you lose weight. But stick to low alcohol varieties with low calories
