Dieting is darkness and Diwali has lights written all over it!
It’s high time we stop obsessing over Diwali detox without understanding what goes into making the delicious laddoos and mithai. It’s time to teach your kid how to roll a laddoo and make it the new cool thing (again), instead of teaching him how to play games on a cellphone.
This festive season, what’s the plan? To pretend that you have an upset stomach or skip that party or to tell your friends that you have an upset stomach? WHO ARE YOU FOOLING?
If you keep looking at that piece of gulab jamun, thinking of ways to skip it, you and your body get disturbed. A disturbed and stressed body converts maximum food to fat. Now would you want that?
Also, do not make the mistake of opting for a sugar free mithai. Not only will it cause acidity and head ache but will also upset your hormones and make you crave for another mithai. Go ahead and eat it if you want a new dress, one size bigger.
I’ve never believed in a detox where I have to starve myself and live on juices. It’s okay to eat sweet and fried food during the festive season, keeping the guilt for the rest of the year. However, if you still want to do some “detox” after the festive season, following are some things you can do:
- The sweetest & bestest Diwali detox is 1 tsp jaggery & ghee mixture post lunch & dinner. Cleans up not just the intestines but sinuses too.
- Sugarcane juice- It is the best detox drink ever.
- You can also sip on these lemon water, etc.
But the point here is to follow all this along with your regular diet and not just live on these.
I wish you guys a happy festive season!
Lots of Love,
