We all have enjoyed our great
winter feasts, haven’t we? The December parties and after parties, loads of
meat roasts and overdose of cakes and pastries. And it of course has shown up
on our bodies. But it was still okay because you could experiment with blazers,
jumpers and so on. But just after the cozy winter months we have been greeted
with the heat wave across northern and eastern India. It has been such a
tormenting time for people in these parts of the country.
The summers ensure you are
wearing the thinnest fabric and shortest dresses. The most common trend I have
seen in people right after the festival season is to go on a crash diet to lose
the added pounds. People surviving on soups and liquid diet, having only salads
or even only cereals! But have we given a thought if it’s worth it? Does it
help in the long run? Of course having salad is good for health – but surviving
only on salads for months – is that what your body wants?
No. Not giving your body enough
nutrition is a sin and the body will curse you in the long run. It will mess up
with your body’s metabolism system and you will end up having acidity and other
gastric problem. Wanting to lose weight is a novel idea but starving yourself
to achieve your desired weight is being harsh on your body. When people go on
crash diet they lose water and later on muscle. What is actually required is to
burn the calories and burn the fat deposits under your skin. A balanced
nutritious diet is what you need along with proper exercise and physical
activity to achieve that.
Few things that one can do is
check what is going in your mouth and what amount of physical activity you are
doing to burn off the calories. You must ensure you are giving back your body
as much calories as you are burning. Check out the ‘3 click Diet Plan’ by Dabur Honey. It is a very simple process to check where your fitness and nutrition

Are you a sugar person? Do you
end up mixing spoonful of sugar with your morning ‘nimboo pani’ or with your daily dose of skimmed milk? Then you are
reversing all the goodness of these helpful ingredients. Change to using honey
instead of sugar. Honey is natural and is a good source of energy. It not only
aids in digestion but helps in weight management too. Check out the Honey Diet
which will ensure you have a good metabolism. A teaspoon of honey mixed with
lukewarm water in the morning is the best way you can start your day.
