5 Tips for post Diwali detox

Five tips that will help you detox after Diwali

Now that Diwali is over and despite the social distancing you still met couple of close relatives and while most people may not have visited, they sent over the boxes of delicious chocolates, mouth-watering mithais and scrumptious portions of cakes in some cases as well.

Someone once said “What melts in your mouth, freezes on your waist” and while Diwali has passed, the New Year is yet to come. So, if you are still in the guilt, I would suggest to make these foods a part of your diet to lose weight as well as to detoxify

1. Green Tea: Green tea has a lot of anti-oxidants that will start working immediately to help get on the track. Regular consumption of green tea helps fat loss, lower risk of cancer, improves digestion apart from a whole lot of other features.

I always recommend Ono Teas to my patients and if you want to use it as well use the coupon code drkanika to get a 5-10 % discount.

2. Broccoli: High in fibre and protein, easily available in winters and filling makes them a good food to have which are low in carb and easy on stomach, try boiled broccoli with corns, broccoli salads etc. most importantly it also helps in fighting cancer

3. Beetroot: most of my clients are surprised to know that beetroot is a superfood which helps in fast detoxification, lowering your blood pressure, and gives you extra energy. Have it in sandwiches, salads, juice or just boiled with a little salt and pepper, have you tried the beetroot soup or rasam?

4. Avocados: Avocados are weight loss super foods, and are packed with heart-healthy fats and anti-oxidants. It’s rich in nutrients and minerals like Vitamin C, Vitamin B-6, Magnesium, etc. Avocados are important in a weight loss diet, as most people don’t get enough of the healthy fats and they also increase the levels of testosterone in the body, which is one of the first hormones linked with weight loss in both men and women.

5. Strawberries: Strawberries are also one of the most yummy and nutritious fruits out there. These lovely-looking and flavourful fruits are super rich in anti-oxidants and Vitamin C and are also responsible for raising the levels of HDL or good fat in the body, use them in your yogurt, oatmeal, salads or smoothies

It’s never to too late start, remember “journey to a thousand miles begins with a single step”
