Practicing healthy diet
Highlights

Indian diet plan consists of foods you’ve already got in your kitchen and that you can lose weight by making a few changes to your diet. While creating a diet chart, it is important to make sure it is balanced, in order to ensure that you receive all the required nutrients

Have an early dinner

Indians eat dinner later than the other societies across the world. Metabolism slows down at night, so a late dinner can lead to weight gain.

Experts recommend you eat your last meal of the day by 8 pm.

Plant-Based Indian

Plant-based diets have been associated with many health benefits, including a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers such as breast and colon cancer.

Following a healthy plant-based Indian diet may not only help decrease the risk of chronic disease, but it can also encourage weight loss.

1200 Calorie Diet Plan

A lot can be spoken about what goes into an ideal diet chart.

However, one's nutritional requirement varies based on various factors.

It could change depending on gender, for example, male dietary requirements vary from that of a female.

Geography can play a role as well, with North Indian diets being largely different from South Indian ones.

Meal preferences come into play since the consumption of food by a vegetarian or a vegan differing largely from that by a non-vegetarian.

Carbohydrates

Carbs are the body's main source of energy and should make up half of your daily calorie requirement. However, it's important to choose the right type of carbs.

Simple carbs, such as bread, biscuit, white rice and wheat flour, contain too much sugar and are bad for you. Instead, opt for complex carbs that are high in fiber and packed with nutrients as compared to simple carbs.

Fiber-rich complex carbs are slow to digest, leave you feeling full for longer, and are therefore the best option for weight control. Brown rice, millets such as ragi and oats are all good complex carb choices.

Meal Swaps

One of the easiest ways to eat healthy is to swap out the unhealthy foods in your diet with healthier alternatives.

For example, fulfil your cravings for a snack to munch on with air popped popcorn instead of relying on potato chips.
