  • Be Selective: Try to avoid deep fried food or go for smaller portions
  • Eat slowly: Fast munchers have the tendency to overeat as it takes time for the brain to register that we are satiated.
  • Do Not forget to drink water: Consume 8-10 glasses of water daily. It keeps you full, removes toxins and helps in proper circulation of nutrients in the blood.
  • Eat breakfast: Begin your day with a good breakfast as it helps to maintain the energy levels throughout the day.
  • Distribute your meals: Try to split meals in 5-6 small portions. It helps to keep the metabolism high and reduces hunger cramps.
  • Avoid binge eating: Avoid eating as a method to manage emotions. Do not eat unless you are hungry.
  • Manage stress: Stress raises cortisol (stress hormone) levels in the body that predispose us to fat accumulation around the belly. Belly fat is associated with heart disease and diabetes risk. Manage stress through medication, yoga or activities that relax.
  • Exercise: Add simple exercises into daily routine like simple walking, walking up the stairs without holding handrail, aerobics, dancing or a sport.
  • Limit the intake of aerated drinks, tea and coffee: Switch to healthy choices like limewater, buttermilk, coconut water and green tea. Check your sugar intake.
  • Keep healthy snacking options: Keep fruits, raw vegetables, roasted pulses and nuts like almonds, walnuts handy. Opt for fibre rich foods like whole-wheat bread, wheat pasta and brown rice
  • Avoid having a late night dinner : Late night dinners slow down absorption and lead to weight gain
