With all the diet tips and articles doing the rounds, your best friend fitting into clothes you envy, whose advice should you follow and what diet is best for you? I am sure it’s a question most of you have asked yourselves at least once and a good question with confusing answers from many!
- Diet tips are many and you have to be sensible while choosing the same. With the stress of tests and exams always around the corner, what should you do, so that you look good, feel great and perform well in your exams and get top scores!
- The first thing is to eat! Most of them confuse the word ‘diet’ with not eating. In fact when you consult an expert on diet, you will be advised to eat healthy!
- Also you will be advised to eat breakfast! Why the emphasis on breakfast? Breakfast is an important meal. Studies have clearly shown that those who eat breakfast score better in tests and exams than those who do not! So, if you want to score well and get into that prestigious institution for the PG course or want to land that prestigious MNC job or you are someone who wants to lose weight and fit into clothes two sizes smaller or wants to work on your six packs so that you can bag that modelling assignment, the simplest thing to do for a start is to EAT BREAKFAST!
- Okay, now that you have realised the importance of eating breakfast, the next important question is what to eat?
- Our traditional Indian breakfasts are the best! Most of our traditional breakfasts are nutritionally well balanced and provide you with nutrients to jump start your metabolism and kick start your day energetically and cheerfully!
- So what happens to all those in hostels, Paying Guest accommodation, who do not have access to a traditional breakfast? Well, for a start, you can buy breakfast cereals off the shelf these days! You can choose from the wide range of flakes to muesli. Do read the label of the product. Some products have a lot of sugar or syrup to sweeten the cereal. Choose one with less sugar or syrup, that is, choose a cereal which is not very sweet because of added sugar.
- A breakfast cereal with warm milk or cold milk with added nuts and fruits is also a balanced breakfast! A quick fix and convenient.
- Among nuts, almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds and flax seeds are good options to add to the cereals and consume, each with its own benefits!
- Oats porridge with milk is also an easy breakfast option. You could add some nuts to oats porridge for taste and added benefits. You also get breakfast cereals made out of organically grown millets which could suit the Indian taste.
