There are 5 health fundas that I feed my days with.
Give yourself a break
Mornings start with my fitness regime and a promise to eat clean but as the day progresses my resolutions seem to fade away. Evening hunger pangs hit hard. I am sure it happens to everyone. My difficult time is between 5-6.30 pm when I crave for something which is pleasing to my palette and can keep me satiated till I fall asleep. Usually, this is the time when I binge eat and then again in the night when If I stay awake for long hours working on watching my favourite series. All the good work that I had done of clean eating through the day goes for a toss. The bigger problem is that I usually am clueless what to eat so I end up eating anything that comes along my way and if I skip this then by the time dinner happens I am so hungry that I end up eating a lot more than I intended to.
Yesterday when the dabbawalas delivered me the Saffola soups, I could not wait to try them. They are really simple to make and yummy. Even my dinner was sorted as I did not overeat and neither did I feel any grumbling in my stomach which happens due to long gaps.
The Saffola soups are a good solution as they have very low-calorie content and high fibre content ie 5x times more fibre than any other soups in the market. More fibre means my metabolism gets a kick start and it cleans my system. Plus they are simple to make. They come in cup size and all you have to do is take a cup of boiled water, add the pouch to it, leave it for a minute and drink it. No massive cooking required.
Healthy eating can improve your mood and similarly, eating fried fatty foods affect your mood in a negative way. While consuming fried food once in a while is ok, when consumed more occasionally it affects your weight and leads to diseases, depression and poor mental health.
Don’t abstain: If you crave for something too much, have it. However, just eat a small portion and satiate that craving. It’s better than avoiding it as your brain will want more of it and then you will end up binging more on it, later on.
Focus on a larger end goal: Every time you are tempted remind yourself what you have set yourself for. My way of doing this is to look in the mirror and identify the bulges I want to get rid off. Some people like to buy and keep a dress they want to fit in. Find your own way to keep yourself motivated.
Drink 2-3 litres of water daily. This helps flush out toxins from your body like nothing else.
Finally, make your own rules, listen to your body, see what works for you and live a healthy life.
