Diet Plan for a healthy lifestyle in this New Year.

A brand New Year is around the corner. It is the time for Christmas celebrations followed soon by New Year’s Eve. That means it is time for lots of food and fun and maybe a little bit of wine too. Celebrations can take quite a toll on our health. Too much food, going to sleep late at night and staying in bed till 10 makes us feel sluggish and slows down our metabolism. Once the festivities are over it is the best time of the year to make a fresh start with your New Year Weight Loss Plan. The start of 2019 can be the first step to a new and healthy you. Dietician Sheela Sherawat the founder of Diet Clinic has wonderful advice for those who wish to start 2019 on the right note.

  1. Eat breakfast – Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It provides you power for the rest of the day. Eat a hearty breakfast within two hours of waking up. The best breakfast can be idli and sambar or oats. It can even be an egg white omelet on whole wheat toast. Wash it down with a cup of herbal tea. The best option, of course, is freshly squeezed orange juice.

  2. Eat small meals – Research has shown conclusively that eating small meals through the day at intervals of 2-3 hours is best for controlling and keeping stable blood sugar levels. Snack on an apple at 11 AM or munch on some almonds. Have a light lunch of roti and sabzi at 1:30 PM. Eat less but at regular intervals.

  3. Eat balanced meals – We need to consume three major food groups-protein, carbohydrates, and fat. No more than 50% of all calories should come from fat. Protein should make up about 25-35%. Protein repairs our muscles and keeps us physically strong. Its importance is often overlooked. Meat protein such as chicken or tuna is the best protein but vegetarians need not despair – from yellow peas, lentils to milk – there is a lot for them to choose from too.

  4. Do not consume simple carbohydrates – Examples of simple carbohydrates include sugar, white rice, refined flour. They are broken down by the body quickly causing spikes of blood sugar levels. It is best to eat complex carbohydrates which stay in the body for a long while. Examples include any type of whole grain such as whole wheat bread, brown rice, oats, peas, beans. They keep blood sugar stable and that is a primary weapon in the fight against weight in your New Year's Weight Loss Challenge.

  5. Drink plenty of water – It is important that the body stays hydrated. Water is a universal solvent and is extremely important for flushing out waste products such as urea from our body. Our body absorbs toxins from the environment. Drinking water is a simple and natural way to get rid of it, so it is important to drink a lot. Water helps regulate blood sugar. Blood sugar levels play an important role in our health and general well-being. The water allows better oxygenation of the body. Water helps keep our bodies moist, which is essential for most organs, especially our lungs.
