Struggling to figure out the best diet for you? Follow this simple meal plan designed according to Ayurvedic principles that will help you lose weight. This diet plan not only makes you shed a few kilos, but it is also a maintenance method for a toned and proportionate body.
Even though the famous adage is “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper”, Ayurveda advises against it.
Drink ginger tea or hot water with fresh lemon juice and honey on an empty stomach, followed by a fruit stew made of apples, pears, berries etc.
Since the midday meal is supposed to be your largest, we’ve divided into three portions.
Half: Vegetables that don’t contain starch
One-fourth: Rye toast and “heating” whole grains with ample fire energy
Instead of chewing on fattening chips, try snacking on sunflower or pumpkin seeds, baked apples with cinnamon, dried fruits like raisins to ward of hunger pangs.
For dinner, you can prepare a warming but light vegetable soup spiced with cumin, ginger, fenugreek, turmeric and pepper.
Indulge your sweet tooth, by balancing it with spices. For example, drink a cup of low-fat milk with a pinch of cinnamon or saffron.
A bonus tip – Sip warm water throughout the day, especially in winters. This helps boost your metabolism, and burn body fat faster.
