Few Diet Tips for you to survive the Holiday Parties

The festive season has arrived and this is the time of the year when the zipper on your dress and the springs in your bathroom scale start getting nervous. A busy social calendar can be daunting if you are trying to stick to a healthy diet. While you need to allow yourself the occasionally indulgence, it can be difficult to restrain yourself when you're surrounded by scrumptious festive treats. So here are a few diet tips by Dietician in Mumbai GeetanjaliAhujaMengi for you to survive the holiday parties.
Rest well the night before a party by getting at least seven hours of sleep. A recent research shows that after a short night’s sleep, adults ate about an extra 300 calories and tended to choose high-calorie foods. When women do not get adequate sleep they may feel less full after eating, while men tend to have an increased appetite. By getting your rest, you’ll save calories and make healthier choices.
Choose your first serving wisely. Studies by Clinical Nutritionist in Bandra suggest that you tend to consume the largest quantity of the foods you eat first, so set yourself up by starting with something low-calorie. Try fresh veggies over chips to save 120 calories per serving.
Choose thin, tall glasses because we tend to pour more alcohol into squat, short glasses. Alternate each alcoholic drink with a glass of water and ease the inevitable hangover.
Pick a smaller plate to trick your brain into thinking you are eating more. Research suggests that the average number of calories eaten at a holiday dinner is shockingly high, and that does not count the pre-dinner snacking. Pick a salad plate instead of a dinner plate and cut down the calories.
Take smaller bites and sips to trick your brain into eating fewer calories. When you take nibbles and chew your food longer, your brain thinks you’ve eaten more. So nibble, don’t gobble. By taking smaller bites and chewing more, you’ll naturally eat less.

Don't Skip Breakfast

A long nights sleep leads to drop in blood sugar as one fasts for 8-10 hours When you skip breakfast, your blood sugar drops even lower. As a result, you become hungry and have less energy. This sets you up to impulsively snack in the morning, often on high-fat sweets or to eat extra servings or bigger portions at lunch or dinner.
A study by Dieticians and Clinical Nutritionists have found evidence that people who skip breakfast compensate later in the day with more refined carbohydrates and fats and fewer fruits and vegetables. But when you eat breakfast, your body feels nourished and satisfied, making you less likely to overeat the rest of the day.
Eating breakfast every day may reduce the risk for obesity and insulin resistance. So Don't skip breakfast and have a healthy required breakfast.

Importance of Right Diet for Cardiac Patients

A healthy diet is a crucial factor in reducing your risk of heart disease. When a person is diagnosed with a cardiac disease, it takes a toll on them both physically and emotionally. But being careful about what you consume can help you control your blood pressure and sugar levels, lower your cholesterol levels and maintain a healthy weight, which are all decisive parameters for a healthy heart.
Although you might know that eating certain foods can affect your heart, it is often tough to change your eating habits. Whether you have years of unhealthy eating under your belt or you just want to tweak your diet for a healthier living, Dietician Geetanjali Ahuja Mengi in Mumbai provides the best dieticians who will recommend a heart-smart diet for you.
The first step towards a heart-healthy diet is to cut down the intake of saturated and trans fats. Instead, you can choose foods that lower cholesterol and focus on fibre rich foods. Another wise change that can be made to your diet is to limit salt intake, as high-salt diets increase blood pressure and the risk of cardiac attack and stroke. Apart from a proper diet, regular exercise is also a key aspect to keep cardiac diseases at bay.

Right Diet along with Daily Exercises would keep PCOS at Bay.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is one of the most common diseases that are faced by the women of today and the major reason for this is the lack of healthy balanced diet. PCOS is a disease that prevails most commonly in obese or over-weight women. Women with PCOS have higher level of insulins than normal and this causes your ovaries to produce excess androgens.
The PCOS diet consists of food high in fibre and protein. High fibre food can help combat insulin resistance by slowing down digestion and reducing the effect of sugar on the blood. High fibre food includes beans, lentils, leafy vegetables, almonds and sweet potatoes. Lean protein plays a crucial part in the PCOS diet as it ensures that it is filling and is a health dietary option for women. Lean Protein is concentrated in food such as tofu, chicken and fish. The diet should also include food reducing inflammation such as tomatoes, kale, spinach and almonds and olive oil.
There are certain food items that should be avoided if you have PCOS. They include foods with refined carbohydrates such as white bread, snacks and drinks with high sugar levels and inflammatory food such as red meat. PCOS like many other diseases is positive to proactive lifestyle.
Weight loss dieticians state that a healthy diet along with daily exercises would keep PCOS at bay. To know more details, call us on 9869192070 / 7678050636 / 69961000 / 40101797
