This Navratri lose weight while you fast, with these easy tips

Navratri is one of the most auspicious festivals in India. During the nine-day festival, many people fast to detox. Fasting not only enhances the digestive capacity of one’s body but also ensures that the harmful toxins are flushed out.

So, if you are planning to fast this Navratri, we have got you covered. These are some amazing diet tips for Navratri fasting that will help you shed those extra kilos.

Keep yourself hydrated

Water is the best way to fight hunger pangs. It keeps you hydrated, and energetic all day long. Instead of drinking plain water, add lemon water, coconut water or buttermilk to your diet plan.

Don't miss seasonal fruits

Navratri is incomplete without seasonal fruits. Mangoes, grapes or even bananas in the form of salads, smoothies, fruit juices and raitas will keep you full all day long.

Reduce caffeine intake

Caffeine causes dehydration and leads to more food cravings. So replace coffee and aerated drinks with healthy drinks like green tea, tulsi or lemon tea.

Go for samak rice

Since we are skipping whole wheat flour, it is important to make sure the body gets its dose of fibre. For this, samak rice is the best because it is loaded with a high amount of fibre and essential minerals like iron and magnesium.

Avoid packaged and fried food

Instead of having fried or oily food such as pakoras, consume homemade healthy snacks and dry fruits, which are rich in calcium, potassium and zinc.

So use this Navratri as an excuse to achieve your fitness goals.
