What and when to eat.. is the question

  • Junk food which is rich in calories, fat, sugar and salt is much yummier and easier to prepare than healthy food. This food does not contain vital nutrients required for a good health and made up of fried and preserved food which does not remain natural. Moreover high refined sugar, hydrogenated fats, saturated fats, sodium, artificial sweeteners and calories make it an unhealthy food option.
  • Are you the types who rushes home from a long day at work, changes hurriedly, dashes to your workout and crashes!! Know why?? Because your body is running on empty!!
  • Eating a healthy snack before exercise plays a very important role as it serves as fuel for the body and also helps in increasing your efforts and results. Doing any workout on an empty stomach results in low blood sugar that causes fatigue and headaches , that is why the sudden dizzy spells. 
  • Make sure you eat something 45 minutes to an hour before workout. The 63-million dollar question is, what should you eat? Not that piece of pastry or the leftover pav bhaji.

What then? Here are some healthy options:

  • Banana (all-time favourite), oats and milk, muesli, whole-grain bread, roti, brown rice, yoghurt, etc. Remember to keep sipping water during your workout as it helps to keep you hydrated.
  • You should avoid fatty foods like cheese and butter as these fats digest very slowly that make you feel very full during workout and makes you feel sluggish . It can also cause indigestion, nausea and vomiting during workout.

Post Workout

  • Okay, so you have Zumba-ed (or brisk walked, or pumped iron, or swam) for a good, solid hour , you have perspired and burned a ton of calories. Good for you!! So when you get back home, do not reach for that leftover cake or pav bhaji! NOT good for you. 
  • Have a proper combination of complex carbohydrates and proteins: 
  • You can have milk with some cereal, cottage cheese sandwich, fruits with yoghurt, dry fruits and nuts, protein shake, eggs in any form, sprouts etc. 
  • Avoid fatty and junk foods, salty snacks and a BIG no to any aerated drinks , sodas and fruit drinks %u2013 they are loaded with sugar and empty calories.

Junk food which is rich in calories, fat, sugar and salt is much yummier and easier to prepare than healthy food. This food does not contain vital nutrients required for a good health and made up of fried and preserved food which does not remain natural. Moreover high refined sugar, hydrogenated fats, saturated fats, sodium, artificial sweeteners and calories make it an unhealthy food option. After eating junk food you feel satisfied but actually it lacks all the essential nutrients. So you just have the feeling of fullness and nothing else. Also you must have felt drowsiness after having junk food. Sleepiness is caused by a drop in the blood circulation as fat gets accumulated in the inner walls of arteries. Obesity is the most common result of eating junk food. Eating junk food like burger, wafers, pizza, samosa, allo tikki, French fries salad full of preservatives leads to poor concentration. Children eating junk food often lack concentration. If you are among those who regularly eat junk food then be prepared to have digestive problems such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), cardiovascular problem,and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Acidity in stomach is caused by the deposition of oil in junk food leading to these problems. Moreover these lack fibre which aids in digestion. Blood sugar level gets irregular by eating junk food. Refined sugar in this food hampers the normal metabolism. To digest high level of refined sugar in blood, pancreas secretes more insulin. Cholesterol and triglyceride level increases by eating junk food which put you in the risk of developing heart diseases and even heart attack. Such a condition also leads to kidney problems. On the other hand health food like vegetables, fruits, lean meat, cereals and pulses contain plethora of nutrients. By eating healthy food your mind, body and soul feel healthy. Brain functionality can be increased by eating nuts. Whole food with minimum or zero processing is the best for health. Healthy food increases the immunity and reduces the risk of health problem.
