Eid ul Azha is just around the corner and everyone is gearing up for the four days of meaty dawats. But there always is a risk of overeating which can cause uneasiness and nausea. Here are a few tips that can help you maintain your health and stomach this Eid.
Avoid fried meat
Try to consume meat which has boiled or grilled and avoid taking it in fried form as this increases the calories and leaves you feeling heavy. Barbequed tikkas and kebabs are an excellent choice of food on Eid.
Go for a light walk
Dieticians and doctors suggest eating your last meal 2 hours before sleeping. After some time, you can go for a long walk for almost 30 minutes to make sure that the food is digested. So you can go to bed feeling light and healthy.
Take green tea after your meals
Take a cup of green tea after every heavy meal. Green tea can helps to increase the metabolism rate. You can also take tea but without sugar.
No fizzy drinks
While it may seem a great idea to have fizzy drinks with your meal for digestion, the reality is the opposite. Fizzy drinks are full of sugar and do more harm to your body than good. Rather than having a soft drink, have a glass of lassi with mint leaves in it for better digestion. Buttermilk will not only improve the digestion process but will also make you feel fuller so you eat less.
Add veggies to your meat
Veggies are packed with vital nutrients and fiber which would make you feel full so that you can abide yourself by eating less high calorie and fats. Eat your meat with a side of vegetables or start your meal with a bowl of salad or stir fry veggies because then your belly would ask for very little malai boti or nihari.
