The Ultimate Guide to Post Diwali Detox

Diwali is finally here, which means there’s great food, lots of fun, surrounded by family and friends, and festivities. After a month-long celebration of Navratri, Durga Puja, Dussehra and Diwali, you’ve probably forgotten all about your diet.

 

Now that the festive season is coming to an end, it is time to do a reality check and make a few changes in your lifestyle, as well as in your diet. That being said, it is difficult to make all these changes over-night, which is why we have put together an easy, simple to follow post-diwali detox. Detoxifying not only benefits you internally, but also makes a huge difference in your energy levels, and the way you look and feel.

 

While most people confuse detoxification with weight loss, the truth is you may not lose weight while detoxifying the body. Eating right and healthy is more important than starving and detox food can provide you with all the required nutrients.

Some Tips to Give your System a Much-Needed Break

 

Instead of having full meals, have large bowls of vegetable soup to fill yourself. Add a variety of vegetables and spices to make your soup healthy and equally tasty.

Avoid skipping meals, and stick to small frequent meals throughout the day. Have plain roasted, steamed, grilled vegetables, and/or fruits instead of simply fasting.

Avoid all so-called diet chips and snacks as they contain high amounts of sodium and will leave you feeling puffy and heavy.

Stay away from white food like maida/refined, all purpose flour, rice, sugar and other processed items.

Drink fluids like coconut water, fruit and vegetable juices, buttermilk, green tea etc.

Have light meals like khichdi or porridge as it’ll keep you feeling full instead of pushing you to reach out to those snacks that you've been trying hard to avoid.

 

If eating too many sweets, oily food and/or consuming alcohol this festive season has caused you to put on some extra weight, along with some digestive problems, we hope that this blog will help you effectively detox and help bring in fitness in no time.
