Breakfast to Dinner- Tips that help you with a healthy lifestyle
This weekend think of a non-fried but a large spread of breakfast. Lay out your morning table like a buffet.
The breakfast layout table can be:
- A glass jar of fresh juices without sugar.
- Stuffed vegetable idlis with coconut chutney.
- Toasted multi grain bread with home made hummus spread on top.
- Potato, carrot and peas tikkis made in a non-stick pan.
- dates or prunes
- Besan chilla/Moong dal cheela with coriander chutney.
- A bowl of mixed nuts(roasted and unsalted)
- Egg white omlette with brown bread.
Have Fruit Twice a Day
Fruit has no fat and is mostly water, so it’ll fill you up while leaving less room on your plate(and in your stomach) for high-cal fare. Don’t freak about fruit’s carb count-We’re talking the good kind of carbohydrates that contain lots of healthy fibre.
Your body need time to shift into sleep mode, so spend the last hour before bed doing a calming activity such as reading. For some people, using an electronic device such as a laptop can make it hard to fall asleep, because the particular type of light emanating from the screens of these devices is activating to the brain. If you have trouble sleeping, avoid electronics before bed or in the middle of the night.
Turn Off the TV
Dining while viewing can make you take in 40% more calories than usual. And texting, driving, or any other distracting activity during a meal can also result in your eating too much. Instead, make each meal something you put on a plate and sit down to, even if you’re eating solo. It takes approximately 20 minutes for fullness signals to transmit from the stomach back to the brain.
These are few important tips, that I follow. Hope it helps you as well. It might be a bit difficult to inculcate these changes in your lifestyle initially, but trust me push yourself a little and you will get used to a healthier new you.
