6 tips for a post-Eid diet
After an entire month of eating heavy meals for both iftar and seheri, nibbling on snacks all night and trying out every new restaurant offers every now and then, it is finally time to get back in shape. Eid-ul-Fitr has surely been a joyous event in every household but the damage the scrumptious food has imposed on our waistline and other body parts is quite noticeable by now. So, it is finally time to say goodbye to the unhealthy eating habits and gladly welcome a more healthy routine to shed the unnecessary weight you have gained throughout the festive season. Here are some tips to get you started. Don’t rush into your old workout plan If you haven’t been working out during Ramadan, it may be better for you to take it easy on the workout plan in the first few days and slowly get back to the usual routine after a week or so. This will help your body avoid the sudden unnecessary load and assist in building a sustainable regime. bigstock-Girl-sitting-in-the-lotus-posi-119903099 Portion control Even though Eid has ended, the dawats at our relatives’ houses and hangout sessions with our friends seem to be never ending. Instead of ditching these gatherings, to save your waistline, try limiting the portion of food you are eating. Eat a moderate amount of rice and meat and try filling half of your plate with vegetable curry, stews and salad. Make water your new best friend One important habit that you need to establish from day one is drinking the right amount of water. Drinking at least 64-ounces of water on a daily basis will help your body flush out toxins and eliminate waste. Try not to gulp down a huge amount of water right after having a meal. Instead, try drinking a glass of water 20-30 minutes before eating to help you eliminate that bloating feeling and stop you from over eating. Switch to healthy cooking methods Try new methods of cooking the same meals that you cook on a daily basis. Try steaming or poaching your fish instead of frying it. Ditch your everyday chicken curry and try preparing a grilled chicken dish. This will help you minimise the amount of oil you use in cooking and assist in making your food less greasy. bigstock-Salmon-Dinner-4330435 Stock up on veggies After eating a lot of greasy food for a whole month it is important that you detox your body and allow the toxins to leave your body. Try eating 5-10 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, adding in a variety of produce to ensure that you get the maximum amount of vitamins and minerals. Be consistent Don’t change your routine every now and then. Learn to control your cravings and limit the amount of carbohydrate that you intake on a daily basis. Draw up a schedule and stick to it for quicker results.
