You can either eat less than you wanted this Diwali or you can opt for these ideas that will help you maintain your weight! That's right, The Brunette Diaries to the rescue! ;)
Fiber-rich foods tend to keep you full for a longer time. So if you opt for foods that are rich in fiber like, grains and lentils, you can not only enjoy the food but also keep a check on the calorie count.
Diwali is all about sweets, sweets, and more sweets so might as well enjoy without worrying about the excess calories. Switch to low calorie sweets that are just as yummy! Low-calorie sweets because not eating the yummy sweets on Diwali is like going to McDonald's and eating salad! So, don't deprive yourself of the deliciousness this festive season.
Whenever you're offered food or sweets, take it in small quantities. While you're eating, make sure to chew it slowly so that your taste buds can absorb the taste well. It will not only lower the calorie intake but will also trick your mind into thinking you've had enough delicacies.
Nuts Over Sweets
If you're visiting that super rich aunt of yours this time, instead of eating different types of sweets, opt for dry fruits or various types of nuts. They're a lot healthier and tend to make you full even when consumed in less quantity.
If you keep drinking water on a regular basis, you will not consume any other festive foods in a large quantity. Water will not only keep you hydrated in this hectic week but will also keep a check on your weight. What're you waiting for? Grab that glass of water now!
Plan a workout schedule before the festivities commence. Spare a few minutes from your oh-so-busy schedule and dedicate it to exercise. It will keep you healthy and energetic for the week so you can run around doing errands without panting!
