Most of the people in India follow the 3 meal pattern and think of mid meal snacking as a sin. But the truth is that small meals eaten every 2-3 hours can not only increase your BMR and help you burn fat but also keep you energetic and active for your routine chores. Benefits of mid meal snacks:

  • Helps to keep your weight under check
  • Boosts energy
  • Improves concentration and focus
  • Provides vitamins, minerals and important nutrients
  • Controls appetite
  • Reduces craving for sweets and fried foods

Reduces hunger as the day passes by and thereby food intake, keeping your digestive system at its best
 Whether at work, home or on field snacking is a very easy task and not cumbersome as people consider it to be. Healthy mid meal snacking does not mean making something authentic or exotic. It means small meals which are easy to pack, carry with you and store for a longer time. Here are a few options you can consider as snacks:

  • Fruits
  • Salads
  • Nuts (almomds/walnuts)
  • Roasted chana
  • Kurmura (puffed rice)
  • Roasted khakras/chivdas
  • Peanut butter sandwich
  • Sprout salad
  • Egg whites
  • Moong dal chila/ nacnhi pancakes
  • Wraps/ rolls

As per you convenience, budget and feasibility you can choose any of the above options which do not require too much preparation, yet give you all the benefits they are meant to.
So enjoy snacking and stay fit!!!

Monsoon workout
20 December 2014
Rains bring a sense of relief after the scorching sunny heat. But for walk/jog lovers it can be a great disappointment when they see heavy showers pouring down especially when they are all geared up for their workout. The gloomy weather adds to the laziness forcing you to miss your gym and get into your quilt. So does this mean you have to give a toss to your workout regime? Ofcourse not. All you have to do it shift your outdoor workouts indoor. So how can you go about it? Check it: Always do a 45 minutes – 1 hour workout: Warm up: you can start your warm up with basic stretches of the neck, head, shoulder, arms and legs  followed by 5 minutes spot jogging, Cardio: after warm up you can do 15 minutes of rigorous cardio to get your heart beat up and start your fat burning process. You can opt for skipping, stair climbing, hopping, jumping jacks etc. You can do any 1 or choose a combination of any of the above. Strength: after a good cardio spree, you need to strengthen your muscles for toning the body and preventing joints from injury. You can do a combination of 20 squats + 20 lunges( each leg)+ 20 push ups. You repeat this set 2-4 times as per your capacity. Abs: start with a plank position for 30 seconds and repeat it again. Then lie down on your back and do 20 crunches + 20 reverse crunches + 20 alternate leg raises. Repeat this set 2 times. Cool down: do 5 minutes of full body stretches and relax. This kind of regime gives an overall body workout including all the components like strength, cardio, stretches. If you want to do a fun workout, you can just play music and dance like no one is watching you. You can also purchase workout DVD’s available in the market to assist you with aerobics, dance, zumba very much at your home. So now the rains cannot damper your exercising spirit!!!
