Now to the Do's and Don'ts

  • Try avoiding salt consumption after your dinner time
  • Try using green chillies or black pepper over red chillies if you prefer spicy food
  • Try Switching between your 3-4 days routine of food plan
  • Start your day with drinking 2 glasses of water before having anything else
  • Have some nuts after water and before breakfast like Almonds, Walnuts, Manukkha

  • Do not sieve flour to remove bran
  • Do not eat in hurry
  • Do not reheat Oil
  • Do not take more than 1 teaspoon sugar at one time in your sweet items
  • Do not eat same food routine over and again
  • Do not skip your meal during the day (try having 5 meals a day)

Above are some guideline I got from my dietitian when I started my plan with her, out of these here are some which I applied in my diet plan
  •  I used Pomace Olive Oil for my routine, it is good for cooking Indian food.
  •  I mainly had apples, oranges, guava, cherries, papaya and sometimes pineapple.
  •  I replaced potato for vegetables with other mix vegetables.
  •  I included flax seed before my morning routine and for snack time sometimes as it helps if any deficiency because of change in your lifestyle relating to food.
  •  I started my exercise routine with 15 minutes walk daily which got increased to 40 minutes daily. I recommend 20 minutes work out/ walk for starter and increase your time as per kg lost or as your prefer (daily routine like making rounds on home stairs or school stairs or school routine do not count as exercise.
Well, that's some things I followed and still following but there's more to it which I'll update in next post along with some diet plans I followed.

Also, I am not dietitian, this is general things about my diet plan which I followed and which I felt like sharing as it might help and you can make changes as you like here and there but make healthier choices, you will like those choices eventually.....hope it'll help you as well as it helped me, enjoy :)
