Lose weight this Navratri

March 29, 2017

I used to avoid fast mostly due to overeating (having entire day’s calories in just one meal is not a great idea for me), so this time I thought of making it a weight loss plan by eating clean and maintaining it throughout the day, as it makes no sense of starving whole day and stuffing your body with fried food in end of the day, as this will only end up in indigestion and putting up more weight.

The basic idea behind fast is to detoxify your body and self-control, it is kind of a balance between body and soul. Fasting also gives rest to digestive organs meanwhile body mechanism is cleansed by clean eating (consuming foods rich in fibre and fluids). Apart from the religious point, our digestive system should be cleansed once in a week to avoid diseases.

The weight loss diet plan for Navratri‘s, you can follow to take benefit. I have also given some options so that you don’t get bored eating same food for 9 days.

Few tips which can make huge difference:

  1. Drink, drink and drink lots of water
  2. Eat roasted foods, avoid fried
  3. Eat something in every 2 hours
  4. Eat in moderation, don’t go overboard
  5. Eat more fruits and salads
  6. Try to have dinner before 7 pm
  7. Don’t skip paneer, at least have 150 gm of paneer daily in any form as it will help you cut fat.


I hope this was helpful.

Your body be your temple, broom it regularly to sweep away the negatives to make space for good things.

Shubh Navratri
