With the holiday season fast approaching, healthy habits tend to take a backseat. Celebrity fitness expert Rujuta Diwekar shares some tips on how to rock this party season and still come out on the other side, feeling (and looking!) spectacular, in her audiobook Eating in the Age of Dieting on Audible.
Have dal, rice, roti with paneer sabzi before leaving for the party. It’s essential to have a full stomach before a night of drinking. The nutritionist states. A well-fed stomach comes with a brighter face and a happier state of mind. Basically, be ready to drink and dance the moment you arrive.
The mantra to survive a night out like this is staying hydrated. Drink water between your drinks and eat peanuts, paneer, olives, cheese, small stuff with good fats, stay well hydrated and don’t let the alcohol hit you of your beauty or brains.
For the night coming to an end, Rujuta recommends eat something before going to sleep. This is important. It could be khichdi, biriyani or just bread and butter, but eat.
Tackling the following day is just as important as the night before, the nutritionist emphasises, Wake up to a glass of water and eat some soaked raisins and one teaspoon of gulkhand. Nothing prevents headaches or hangovers like this does. It also helps you cleanse your system.
Eat a wholesome snack before noon. Essentially take your pick but eat something to ease your next day, says Rujuta.
