Plan your very own Nutrition - Strategy

Forget about the popular google pages explaining you about the various diets you need to maintain: high carb, low calorie, less fat etc etc etc.

It is so tiring to try to maintain the type of food you want to have, go looking for it specifically in the market, get disappointed when not found. The problem with us nowadays is that, we believe too much on what others have to suggest. May it be suiting you, or not suiting you. Also, you need to be happy with your diet, that’s when you would feel good about the changes in your routine and body.

Do not forcibly eat less or limited if you feel hungry, hunger is natural. You won’t get fat if you eat a little more, but you will definitely fall sick if you eat less than your body needs.

So, why don’t we shift aside from that and try to build our own diet strategy like people from olden times did.


1. Follow three basic principles to build this strategy.

a) Eat fresh food avoiding processed or stale food as much as possible. b) Eat nutritious food in right quantity & c) Always eat peacefully remaining calm. Together, the above three are bound to keep you healthy.

Avoid eating food which is heated again and again whether in microwave or on stove. Insist on eating freshly-cooked vegetables to get the maximum nutrients. Do not cut carbohydrates from your diet. Choose healthier ones because carbohydrates keep you full, stabilize blood sugar and provide valuable nutrients. Avoid refined carbs like flour, white bread, white pasta, muffins, chips, popcorn etc. Instead choose brown rice, whole-wheat bread, baked sweet-potatoes etc. Eat protein at every meal especially, including it at breakfast is very important. Do not believe in staying in shape with only salad for any meal. Lentils, milk and other milk products, egg, paneer or fish, beans, tofu or meat substitutes are some of the best sources of everyday protein intake. Before the start of work and after the end of a working day protein intake is very essential. You may improve protein intake by drinking a glass of Lassi. Avoid eating food labelled ‘low fat’ or ‘fat free’. Fat is an essential component of our food. What is needed to avoid is ‘processed’ or added fat. Shed fat from the body instead of looking for fat-free food because Omega-3 or Omega-6 fatty acid help control the overall fat in the body. Snacks with ‘low fat’ label may help reduce fat intake but they restrict the absorption of vitamins like A, D and E. Iron deficiency is a common problem with women. Vitamin B12 present in paneer, sprouts and curd helps absorb iron in the body. Calcium deficiency in a woman’s body is also a concern for which calcium supplement may be taken after consulting a doctor.
