Diwali brings with itself delicious sweets and snacks – it’s the time to let go of strict fitness regimes and diets. Almost all of us are guilty of eating a little extra during family gatherings and poojas. While just a few cheat days are okay once in a while, many of us indulge more than we plan to and end up gaining a few kilos too.
It is not a problem if we practice good weight management practices after the festivities are over.
Here are a few practices you can include in your lifestyle to help you quickly detox and shed that extra weight!
- Plan a detox. Include juices, teas, and lots of water in your diet to flush out toxins from the body. The continuous consumption of alcohol, sugar, and oily foods during Diwali messes up the hormones and causes weight gain. Asili Green Tea with Mint is a quick, vegan, & easy-to-use alternative to your regular tea. It comes with an added advantage. In addition to speeding up your metabolism, the flavonoids and antioxidants help you achieve glowing skin too!
- Spices and Herbs aid weight loss. Certain spices and herbs can help in boosting metabolism, suppressing hunger pangs, and providing anti-oxidants to the body. A mix of these spices is the Asili Weight Management Mix which you can consume like a detox drink instead of your morning tea or coffee. With the goodness of Haritaki, cumin and other extracts, it aids digestion and reduces bloating.
- Calorie negative foods: Add Calorie Negative foods to your meals. Calorie negative foods are those that keep you fuller longer and have very few calories. These are foods which supposedly takes more calories to eat, digest and process than it naturally contains. Switch to Celery, Cucumber, Carrots, Broccoli, Watermelon, Beets, etc.
Shedding these recently gained extra kilos is not very difficult if you are dedicated and well-informed about the healthy practices and the right foods to consume. Don’t be too hard on yourself and take one step at a time. Indulgence is not wrong if done in moderation. Never try to punish yourself for having a few cheat days. Remember, balance is the key!
