- Festivities call for unbridled indulgence
- Diwali is one of the most-loved of all Hindu festivals
- Festivals and parties go hand-in-hand
1 - Exercise portion control. You need to be smart about your food choices and this is exactly why you can take a bite of all things yummy and keep it to that.
2 - Frequent meals are necessary in managing your blood sugar levels. Avoid eating larger meals.
3 - Cook smartly, while preparing desserts, you can always use low-fat milk over full-cream milk. You can have desserts occasionally and to compensate, cut back on carbs. Replace regular sugar with natural sweeteners like jaggery.
4 - Keeping a check on your calorie intake is essential. Be mindful of it and cut back from having too much of oily or fried items.
5 - Don't skip your medication or insulin shots. Eat low-glycemic foods, have plenty of natural fluids and exercise without fail. Balance our indulgence by also maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating clean and exercising regularly.
