Most Indians spend hours every day browsing through the internet or reading various health magazines searching for valuable diet advice. But what majority of Indians don’t understand is that they usually look for the right information in the wrong places that is general diet sites or general health magazines. None of them are India centric and therefore do not offer diet plans that will suit Indian diet plans. Yet every day we see people trying to follow the general plans, and they invariably get confused or simply give up. This stems from ignorance and nothing else.
Indian cuisine is diverse and distinct- there is a large ratio of the populace that eats only vegetarian food. Indian diet plans are also quite different from global diet plans, as food patterns are quite different.
Losing weight with an Indian diet is quite simple. Diet plans follow the same pattern no matter what kind of cuisine you follow. But understanding this is in order to implement it is an entirely different problem altogether, and then it’s application depends on your dedication. Indian food is perfect for losing weight, it has numerous low calorie substitutes, for foods rich in calories. Avoid fried items, eat green leafy vegetables with the regular consumption of rice or rotis, and include fruits and milk with low fat content into your regular diet. Opt for food products with low fat content as much as possible.
Do not over eat! Eat only what the body requires.
Follow definite diet plans strictly if you’re serious about getting rid of the extra pounds fat and burn calories.
Most people confuse dieting with total abstinence. Well, of course indulging at times won’t send your diet haywire, but you would be advised to keep it to a controlled minimum
Breakfast should be light and can consist of items such as low fat oats, cornflakes with a glass of milk, fruit salads with fresh fruit juices which can help sustain the metabolism of your body. Make sure lunch and dinner are full of fiber rich food which can help you in losing weight and at the same time satisfy your hunger. This shouldn’t be a big problem for Indians, as Indian cuisine is full of varieties of foods rich in fiber.
Meat and fish in small quantities can help you in retaining much needed strength, egg taken in few quantities during breakfast adds to the nutritional benefits of the diet.
Follow a healthy workout and a balanced and healthy diet and you should lose weight in no time!
