Follow 3S for good health - Sit down to eat, focus all your senses and eat slowly

  • Sit down to eat: When you sit down, you practice a yogic posture by stretching your legs, bending and squatting to take the food. This improves the food digestion by working up the abdominal muscles to secrete digestive juices.
  • Focus all your senses on food: As you sit down to eat, try engaging all your six senses! Do not just concentrate on the flavour, notice the colours, sounds, textures, smells, and even your brain's response to the food. This will help you understand your food habits well and enjoy food better.

  • Eat slowly: After a snack, your stomach contains a hormone called ghrelin, which releases fullness hormones, while also controls hunger. These hormones reduce appetite, tells your brain that you have eaten, makes you feel full, and helps you stop eating.
  • Avoid 4S of detoxsoup, salad, smoothies and starvation.

Avoid 4S of detox

Don't compensate by over-exercising. Get back to routine, eat something within 20 mins of exercise and stay hydrated

  • Don't compensate by over-exercising: Running too fast or over-exercising can have severe consequences for your brain and body. Over-exerting yourself could damage your arteries and heart, could make you addicted, worsen the results you worked hard to get and lead to injuries.

  • If you are feeling guilty for enjoying homemade Diwali delicacies, you are not on a sustainable diet.
  • Stay hydrated: Whether you are travelling, playing sports, or just sitting in the sun, getting enough to drink is essential. Whenever the temperatures rise, your heart health becomes critical. Staying hydrated helps the heart pump blood quickly through the blood vessels to the muscles.

Eat something within 20 mins of exercise: Some Pre-Workout Meals

  • Side salad, lean protein and a whole-grain bread sandwich.
  • A cup of fruit, egg omelette and whole-grain toast with avocado spread.

  • Roasted vegetables and brown rice.
  • Special tip by nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar: 3 Suryanamaskar at sunrise and three at sunset to get back on track.

Conclusion: To keep functioning normally, your body needs daily fuel! Therefore, gradually you should ease back to your regular eating pattern. What does your body want? It requires a little rest from the enormous portions and tons of sugary foods you have been consuming.
