We all love food and during festivities like Diwali, Bhaidooj and weddings, controlling can be a problem. However, if you are still on a diet during this time or have to control due to the approaching wedding season, then here are some tips dolled out by Suhasini Sampath, Co-Founder at Yoga Bar.
Don't Have an 'All or Nothing' Approach
A major roadblock to achieving a healthy diet and lifestyle is 'black and white' thinking. One common scenario is that you have a few unhealthy appetizers at a party and decide that your diet is ruined for the day, and proceed to overindulge in unhealthy foods. Sticking to a healthy diet can be tough when you are away from home for extended periods of time. Having healthy high-protein snacks on hand can help keep your appetite in check until you are able to have a full meal.
Don't Let Traveling Derail You
Whether you are travelling for business or pleasure, being outside of familiar territory can make it difficult to stick to a healthy lifestyle. Here are a few tips. Research the restaurants and supermarkets ahead of time. Pack some healthy foods that don't spoil easily.
Practice Mindful Eating
Eating mindfully can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Take time to enjoy your food, and appreciate its ability to nourish you. This increases your chances of making successful, lasting behavioural changes.
Start The Day With A High-Protein Breakfast
If your first meal is well balanced and contains adequate protein, you are more likely to maintain stable blood sugar levels and not overeat for the rest of the day.
Figure Out What Works Best for You
There is no perfect way of eating that works for everyone. It's important that you find a way of eating and exercising that you enjoy, find sustainable and can stick to for the rest of your life.
The best diet for YOU is the one you can stick to in the long run.
