Diet tips and plan by Priya Kathpal
Count your calories: Calorie intake for both the sexes in this age group is highly dependent on the activity pattern and the number of calories you burn. 1800-2100 kcal per day is enough for a healthy person.
Avoid processed foods: Avoid the use of refined and processed foods that have high amounts of sugar, sodium, fat and artificial colours. Eat natural, wholesome foods like fruits, vegetables, sprouts, nuts, seeds, herbs and whole grains as these are stimulating, rejuvenating and can boost your immune system.
Drink lots of water: Drink at least 10-12 glasses of water every day to remove toxins from the body. Whenever you feel hungry in between meals, drink water. It will help beat hunger pangs.
Have a diet rich in vitamin D, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids: Include foods rich in vitamin D, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids to boost weight loss by improving your metabolism.
Eat fibre rich foods: Do not neglect fibre and make a conscious effort to include whole grains, legumes, and fruits more often than before. Fibre helps drive out the unwanted toxins and fats from the body. It also keeps you full for longer helping you beat hunger pangs.
Apart from diet and exercise, you need to make sure that you stay away from stress. Stress can lead to the release of certain hormones in your body which may hinder your weight loss goals. Meditating for 15-20 minutes can help you relax your mind and body. Here is a meditation guide for beginners.
