A weight-loss diet trending toward flinging during wedding season? The Star Nutritionist shares simple rules for staying on track
Calorie- and fat-dense foods at weddings can make you lose weight.
New Delhi: Here comes wedding season and with it goes the drive and motivation to stay on track on your health journey.
Attending weddings is fun – lots of fun and frolic, and the food, family, and friends make the rituals, traditions, and celebration worth it. In India, the wedding season begins in October and lasts till January, leaving us with invitations to various weddings, receptions, and various rituals. If you’re on a weight loss diet, this time of year can wreak havoc on your diet since it’s so hard to crack those cravings.
Don’t eat floating snacks
Floating snacks are delicious and appetizing-looking foods that are served abundantly by waiters at a wedding. Also, in the food area, you will find several snack bars and counters from which there are plenty of options to choose from.
Eat only one type of food
Always eat only one type of food instead of shuffling calories.
Tables of Italian cuisine with pizza and pasta are a sure death knell for your weight loss diet. Rujuta recommends heading to counters that offer healthy, relatively low-carb foods, such as Indian fare.
You can choose curries with lots of vegetables in them. And when choosing bread, wheat-based chapatis are better than tandoori or naan breads.
Get a table away from the buffet
If you sit near the buffet table, you will surely feel tempted and keep filling your plate with unhealthy food. Hence, the best is to be as far away as possible from the dining tables so that you eat as much as your belly desires, not your greed.
Don’t miss breakfast the next day
One of the biggest mistakes we make, according to Rajuta, is not having breakfast the next morning. Most of us overeat at weddings and thus feel full even the next day.
However, it is recommended that you eat your breakfast as a healthy meal that can actually help you get back on track.
