Avoiding parties and delicious food? This sounds completely impractical, doesn’t it? Instead, you can simply change up your eating routine and enjoy the flavors of the season to the fullest.
According to nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, “To continue enjoying the wedding atmosphere, the least you can do is protect your gut for overall body functioning.” To help you with this, we have compiled a list of simple tips and tricks that will help you enjoy delicious ‘shadi ka khana’ without the fear of weight gain. Let’s walk you through it.
Here are 6 diet tips to help control your weight this wedding season:
1. Snack before heading to the party:
If you have a party coming up, we recommend having a snack beforehand. A handful of nuts and dried fruits, cookies or something light and healthy will help you control overeating, which can later lead to an upset stomach, bloating, slow metabolism and accumulation of fat in the body.
2. Keep drinking water:
Drinking water throughout the day helps your body function properly, promoting detoxification and weight management. What’s more, water makes you feel fuller, which allows you to further control your meal portion size.
3. Limit food portions:
The wedding party offers a long list of delicacies that we know are hard to resist. No freight; we won’t ask you to avoid these delicacies. Instead, all we say is: take it all, but in smaller portions so you can enjoy it guilt-free.
4. Eat early:
Wedding parties go on for long hours. But this does not mean that you have to starve all the time. You can eat your food in the evening and then stay and enjoy the party to the fullest.
5. Avoid Carbs and Add Protein:
Be careful when choosing a dish, especially if it is an evening party. Have adequate protein in your plate and limit or avoid carbohydrates like roti, rice, etc. This will not only make room in your tummy for desserts but will also limit your overall calorie intake.
6. Balance with light dishes:
Let’s face it – enjoying a large and varied wedding menu is completely normal. But try to balance it out with light meals for the rest of the day. This will help you control your overall calorie intake and also improve your metabolism.
The tips are pretty easy to follow, right? So follow them and make your wedding season happy, healthy and guilt free.
