With variety of deep fried food dishes and sweets in front of you, it is really difficult to lose weight during festivals like Holi. If you cannot lose weight, at least try not to put on extra pounds.
These are few tips on monitoring and controlling festive diets,
Do Not Overeat: Itâ€™s not just about the quantity of food you are eating, but the amount of calories you intake. Thus, during the festive season, one needs to be careful about the consumption of calories to avoid weight gain.
Avoid Specific foods: Avoid oily foods and too much of spicy food besides restricting the sugar intake in sweets. Plan your meal in such a way that one special meal of the day should most likely be lunch so that day activities and movements can burn the extra amount of calories. And, try keeping your breakfast light and healthy, while dinner should be as light as possible to manage the intake of calories.
Fresh Foods: Pick the freshest food and keep an eye on expiry dates of the food products you are consuming. The possibility of food contamination with bacteria is very high when it comes to high temperature eating items. Bacteria can cause severe diarrhoea which can lead to dehydration, nausea and vomiting, thus, most of the foods and sweets should be refrigerated. Drink ample amount of fluids and appropriate usage of salt help to prevent dehydration.
