Weight Loss: How to get back on a track after falling off your Diet or Exercise

It is difficult to follow your healthy eating track when life keeps getting in the way. Whether it’s work, family commitments, or vacations, it is more than likely you fall off the track of your healthy eating goals. The last thing we want is to give up completely.

We’re all human, so it’s normal to get sidetracked when trying to eat healthy. But falling off the wagon doesn’t mean having to stay off.

Enter Priyanshi Bhatnagar, Certified Holistic Nutritionist effective Strategies, a leading online nutrition consultant specialising in weight management, disordered eating, gut health, metabolic nutrition along with holistic healing. Eat up, lose weight, and feel energized on her easy nutrition plan.

There will always be instances when following your routine is impossible. You don’t need superhuman willpower, you just need strategies that can pull you back on track.
With that said, here are Priyanshi’s 8 strategies that you can use to Reset and Recharge After Falling Off the Healthy Eating Track.

1.Start now, not tomorrow

Don’t wait for tomorrow, next Monday or next month to put your plan into action. Start with your next meal. If you’re going away, have something in the fridge or freezer that you can cook easily when you return or, if you shop for food online, book in an order of healthy foods to arrive when you get home.

Weight loss tips

Even if you’ve had a big lunch, a chocolate bar, or a piece of cake already today, don’t let that stop you making a start today.

2.Focus on Small Changes

Start Small!  Smaller changes are proven to be more effective long-term than bigger ones. Think about an area that you know you need work. For example, if you are skipping meals like lunch your first goal could be to eat your three meals per day and then balance it with mostly vegetables, a source of lean protein and a whole grain carbohydrate like millets or a starchy vegetable like sweet potato.

3.Focus on Consistency

The trend in today’s world based on current science is that extreme fad diets do not work in the short and long term. While you may think you experience true weight loss, extreme weight loss short term simply results in loss of muscle. By losing muscle, you decrease your metabolism and not only gain the weight back over time but have a harder time losing weight again.

Food choice

Sticking with a whole foods diet incorporating healthy fats and other balanced food groups, you experience a loss in body fat and sustain or boost muscle when incorporating a fitness routine. These are the lasting results that matter for your weight and health along with how you look and feel.

4.Get Active

Exercise keeps you motivated by making you feel good, empowering you with the realization of the strength of your body. Plus, fitness is proven to boost your mood and keep you focused which helps you eat better. It will also help you physically see the results of your weight loss efforts more quickly and it is a proven necessity when you have to keep the weight loss off.

Stay active

Don’t become overwhelmed by the word “exercise” and instead make a less stressful commitment to simplybe active.” Any movement you do and consistently will work in your weight and health favour long term.

5.Don’t starve yourself after a day of eating

Starving yourself just sets you up for overeating at your next opportunity, and that defeats the point. The first thing you will do is reach for all the wrong foods, like bread and carbs. Eat a modest and balanced breakfast here are Healthy Breakfast Ideas for Busy Mornings under 100 calories & 200 calories. That way when you walk into the room full of food your body will be nicely fueled and you will be able to make a rational decision of what (and how much) to eat.

Low Cal breakfast

6.Hydrate And take 10 minutes to see if you are thirsty, not hungry

Most of the time we are struggling with eating too much, or wanting to eat less and skip a very critical component of our weight: water! Simply drinking primarily water, will help meet your fluid needs and decrease your weight. Not only does hydration help your total weight, but it also boosts your metabolism by 30% helping you burn more calories simply by drinking! Try to incorporate hydrating foods like fruits and vegetables into your diet as well as help meet your fluid goals.

7.Don’t buy diet cookies, snack on fruit

Rather trying to find a healthy snack from the huge range in the shops, limit yourself to fruit or veg for between-meal snacks. These are low in calories, provide plenty of nutrients. And it has the advantage of being a really simple goal and you’ll easily be able to tell whether you are achieving it.

Low calorie snacks

To reduce temptation, don’t go down the supermarket aisles with cakes, biscuits and sweets – here we have Guilt-Free Sweet Fix Cookies

8. Plan to keep hunger at bay

When you let yourself get too hungry, it’s all too easy to overeat. To avoid that, plan nutritious snacks into your day. When you’re away from home, carry a “snack pack” filled with healthy options: things like dried and fresh fruits, baby carrots, nonfat yoghurt, trail mix, whole-grain cereal, nuts, and baked chips or check our 6 Portable Healthy Snacks

Healthy Snacks

Get Back on Track

Change can be hard. In the beginning, your healthy habits might take two steps forward and one step back. Anticipating those backwards steps can make all the difference in the world. Develop a plan for getting back on track and recommit to your routine as quickly as possible.

Weight loss

These are just a few of the many examples of real people getting back on the road to health via the detoxpri diet. The important thing is staying motivated and having the tools to get yourself back on track because you can reach your goals even with a little detour.

Healthy Breakfast Ideas for Busy Mornings under 100 calories & 200 calories

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

What Is a Balanced Breakfast?

A balanced breakfast should focus on protein and fiber.

First off, protein adds staying power to a meal, which helps keep energy levels steady. Then fiber aids with diet regularity and fullness.

By being creative in coming up with different protein and fiber combinations, you can come up with some easy breakfast recipes that are satisfying, nutritious and perfect for those busy mornings. Of course, I’ve included some of my favourite ones below to get you started.

There are a plethora of benefits to starting the day with a balanced meal, and it isn’t that hard. In this article, I’ll discuss some of the major benefits of eating a healthy breakfast before moving onto some of my favourite easy breakfast recipes.

Starting your day with breakfast can help with weight management

Perhaps the most appealing benefit of breakfast is that it jumpstarts your metabolism and may help you burn more calories throughout the day. It was found that those who skip breakfast have a tendency to consume more fat throughout the day and have lower calcium, fiber, fruit and vegetable intake. Additionally, studies have found that people who skip breakfast tend to have a higher body mass index (BMI).

Starting your day with breakfast can help with memory and attention

In the morning, our blood sugar is low, and we need to replenish it to help power our brain and muscles. Breakfast is especially important for metabolic needs. Research suggests that people who eat breakfast are better learners and have better concentration, more problem-solving skills and better hand-eye coordination.

You should never miss breakfast or you will end up eating more later.

Why am I so Hungry in the Evenings? The Problem Of Evening Hunger

Your “hunger hormone” levels rise and your “satiety hormone” levels drop in the evening, a study has discovered.

So is this situation just one that has to be accepted as a cost to fat loss dieting?

Is evening hunger just something that everyone who wants to get lean has to push through?

To a certain extent, yes!

No remedy will eliminate hunger.

However, the science of diet design can help reduce evening hunger in several major ways, with the result being a drastic reduction of cravings and a huge drop in the likelihood of falling off the wagon.

HORMONES THAT MAKE YOU HUNGRY RISE IN THE EVENING

Let’s take a look at the phenomenon of evening hunger and then see what steps we can take to reduce it while still dropping body fat.

Cravings

There are several reasons why evening hunger is particularly pernicious during fat loss diets:

• Most people have higher stress hormone levels in the early morning and daytime and lower stress hormone levels (such as cortisol) in the evenings. Stress hormones suppress appetite.

• Most people are busy with work or responsibilities in the mornings and afternoons. Sure, you can be hungry during this time, but the demands of workday tasks can keep you distracted from the hunger sensations to quite a large extent.

• Evenings are usually more relaxed times where you settle down to watch your favourite TV shows or hang out with family and friends. Not only are you no longer focused and distracted from hunger, but you’re engaging in the kinds of activities (TV watching and/or socializing) that are highly associated with eating lots of delicious food.

• For those who drink caffeinated beverages (coffee, tea, diet sodas, energy drinks), morning and afternoon hunger is a much smaller issue. Because they are under the effects of caffeine at these times, the powerful hunger-suppressing effects of this substance make cravings much less likely. However, most people taper their caffeine use in the evenings so that they can fall asleep at night.

Falling asleep requires relaxation, which is the opposite of willful effort! If you’re hungry during the day, you can get through by sheer willpower. But if you’re hungry at bedtime, can you will yourself to sleep? Unfortunately, “willing yourself to sleep” is an internal contradiction.

What Can be Done to Help?

For many dieters, evening hunger can be a great hindrance to both diet progress and mental sanity. Luckily, science can help. There are no less than 5 different diet manipulations you can employ to make your fat loss diet much less susceptible causing to bouts of evening hunger. Make any or all of the following changes to your diet, and your evening hunger problems will decline.

Plant protein

1.More protein

Of all of the macronutrients, protein is the most satiating. That’s right, per unit of calories, protein fills you up the most and keeps you fuller, longer. With minimum levels of fats needed for proper body and hormonal functioning, and carbs which are effective at supplying energy and preventing muscle loss during dieting.

2.More greens and fruits

Not only are greens and other low-calorie veggies stocked full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, they are also incredibly filling. If you eat enough of them they can make a meal downright hard to finish! Fruits can also be consumed more at the expense of slices of bread and grains.

Eating greens

3.Bigger meals at night

Simply eat bigger meals in the evening. Keep your morning meals to mostly protein and veggies, and then save more of your daily fats and carbs for the later meals. Just when you’re most prone to be hungry, you have your biggest meals of the day to eat.

4.Lower palatability

When low-palatability foods (foods that are not the best tasting) are eaten, people just don’t tend to want as much of those foods, to begin with, or to have more of them later. If you eat half a cheeseburger on a diet, you might feel like you could kill someone for the other half. But eat the same calories and macros in unflavored oatmeal and egg whites with olive oil, and you’ll be happy when you’re done with the meal so that you don’t have to chew that mess anymore!

Does this mean you have to eat disgusting food during your diet? No. But it can mean that you should ease up on the tasty sauces, spices, and cheeses that make your food both high in calories and super tasty.

5.Reducing or eliminating shakes

Drinking your meals is a much easier way of getting in calories than eating them. Chewing a bunch of food can be a pain in the ass, and solid foods (especially the high volume foods high in fiber, such as whole grains, fruits, and veggies) can keep you fuller much longer than liquid foods.

Soup

If you’re particularly parched or starving come nightfall, it’s probably because you either

a) didn’t eat or drink enough earlier in the day, and/or

b) you didn’t nourish your body with enough essential vitamins and minerals

In that case, pay close attention to what foods you’re craving at night, and figure out what that means in terms of nutrients.

There’s a reason why your doctor suggests eating a well-balanced diet and drinking a ton of water: It’s because all of these different food groups will collectively nourish your body and keep you satiated. So take notice of the number of proteins, healthy fats, and high-fiber foods you’re eating throughout the day.

Why the Immune system and Immunisation is Important

Boosting immunity is the need of the hour!

It’s easy to take the immune system for granted because it does such a good job at keeping us free from infection around the clock!

If you’ve got a healthy immune system, look after it and it will look after you.

We are living in COVID 19 times and one of the key thing that can help us to sail through this time is have strong immunity. We may pay more attention to the health of your immune system during the winter when colds and flu surround you. But the truth is, your immune system has to work hard all through the year, whether it’s offering protection from a flu virus or an infection that could happen any time.

The immune system is your body’s natural defence system.

Why exactly do you need a healthy immune system though?

• Your immune system is the first line of defense for anything from a seasonal sniffle to a sinus attack of epic proportions. A robust and properly functioning immune system helps you go about daily life as you come into contact with germs and bugs from pets, other people, and your environment.

• Without a healthy immune system, you could pick up infections and infectious diseases more easily, and the effects could be serious – even fatal.

• Your body’s first line of defence is its physical barriers. If viruses and bacteria manage to break through, there are specialised cells that will jump into action.

• Your bloodstream and key areas of your body contain white blood cells that can fight and destroy the viruses and bacteria they find.

• Sometimes, our immune system can overreact and even attack your body’s cells. This is what happens in the case of allergies like hay fever and autoimmune diseases. It’s why donated blood and organs must be very carefully matching.

Here are Power-packed Immune-Boosting Juices

What makes up your immune system?

Many factors affect the functioning of the immune system.

It is important to understand that these factors play a significant role in regulating and boosting immunity. Some you will have heard of before but others are more obscure. Here are the different parts that play important role in keeping your body protected:

1. Skin

2. Mucus

3. Gut

4. Lymph system

Immunity

What is an immunisation?

Immunisation is a way of protecting against serious diseases. Once we have been immunised, our bodies are better able to fight these diseases if we come into contact with them.

Immunization, or immunisation, is the process by which an individual’s immune system becomes fortified against an agent (known as the immunogen).

Why Immunisation is important?

  • The purpose of immunisation is to prevent people from acquiring infections and to protect them against the short- and longer-term complications of those infections, which can include chronic illnesses, such as cancer, and death.

  • Immunisation is one of the best ways you can protect yourself, your children and future generations from infectious diseases. In other words, if you are Immunised, you help wipe out the disease that could spread now and into the future.

  • Immunization is considered as the most effective medical intervention to prevent deaths and reduce diseases by the World Health Organization and has also reduced the death rate in patients infected with diseases & viruses.

Who needs to be Immunised?

The answer is simple – almost everyone!

How does Immunisation work?

All immunisations work in the same way. The Immunisation uses your body’s immune system to increase protection to an infection before you come into contact with that infection.

In other words, it is like being infected with the disease without suffering the actual symptoms. If you come into contact with an infection after you’ve been Immunised, your body works to stop you from getting the disease, or you may get just a mild case.

How long do immunisations take to work?

In general, the normal immune response takes approximately 2 weeks to work. This means protection from an infection will not occur immediately after immunisation. Most immunisations need to be given several times to build long-lasting protection.

How long do immunisations last?

The protective effect of immunisations is not always lifelong. Some, like tetanus vaccine, can last up to 30 years, after which time a booster dose may be given. Some immunisations, such as the whooping cough vaccine, give protection for about 5 years after a full course. Influenza immunisation is needed every year due to frequent changes to the type of flu virus in the community.

Immunisation or vaccination – what’s the difference?

The terms ‘vaccination’ and ‘immunisation’ don’t mean quite the same thing. Vaccination is the term used for getting a vaccine – that is, actually getting the injection or taking an oral vaccine dose. Immunisation refers to the process of both getting the vaccine and becoming immune to the disease following vaccination.

When enough people in the community are vaccinated, the spread of disease slows down or stops completely. So as long as enough people are vaccinated, the disease will not spread. This is called herd immunity.

Foods For Every Mood: The Food and Mood Connection

Explores the relationship between what you eat and how you feel, including tips on how to incorporate healthy eating into your life.

Many will agree with me when I say that “Food is the best thing in life” because it is! Food offers so many options and each of it has a different effect on our mood. While a tub of ice cream helps in dealing with heartbreak, having a hot steaming cup of coffee recharges the body to send out a hundred emails at work. 

Similarly, various foods help in soothing different moods. Whether you want to feel happy or shed off anger, there is food for every mood! 

Your diet can play a significant role in how you feel emotionally.

Yes, your eating habits play a big role in determining your disease risks. But did you know that they also have a huge effect on your state of mind?

Here’s what the research says about diet and depression: https://www.health.harvard.edu/mind-and-mood/food-and-mood-is-there-a-connection

What is the Relationship Between Food and Mood

It is well known that unhealthy eating patterns can cause mood swings. Blood sugar fluctuations and nutritional imbalances are often to blame. Without a steady source of fuel from the foods we eat, our mind and bodies don’t function well.

Beyond mood and general well-being, the role of diet and nutrition on mental health is very complex and has yet to be fully understood. But, you may wonder whether any healthy foods can improve your mood. Here are the ways to Boost Your Every Mood with Food.

Food for mood

SADNESS

We feel sad very often, especially when we get into a conflict with our loved ones, or sometimes even with ourselves. If we are feeling sad, upset or even low, the best thing to cheer the mood and feel happy is to eat ice cream. It releases endorphins (the happy hormone). Other foods to eat are strawberries and chocolates. Don’t eat too many chocolates though as they also tend to make us lethargic.  

Another way can be trying to intake of oily fish to boost your brain health and mood. Oily fish is not only rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which can help ward off depression, negativity and mood swings, but wild salmon and tuna are good sources of vitamin B12, which helps to regulate the mood.

Omega3

STRESS

Whether you’re feeling overwhelmed by a busy day or are finding it difficult to wind down after work, try snacking on some blueberries to help cope with stress. Blueberries are high in vitamin C, which can help the body deal with high levels of stress. Also, the superfruit is packed with antioxidants which help to protect your body from its effects.

ANGER

We all know that anger isn’t a good thing but it also isn’t something we are good at controlling. We often walk out of our boss’s cabin with a frown on our face and using cuss words in our mind. We also walk out of the house and slam the door hard behind us after getting into a heated argument with parents/partner. However, this won’t help in calming the anger down.

Do you know what will?

Next time you feel a rage coming on, try reaching for some nuts and seeds to help calm you down. Research has shown that Omega-3 deficiency can contribute to the aggressive behaviour of adult offenders and children with severe behavioural difficulties, while a Japanese study has suggested that zinc may ease anger in women. To up your intake of these nutrients, try opting for walnuts and flaxseeds, which contain both zinc and Omega-3 fatty acids. Also try eating fruits and leafy greens, eggs and chia seeds. 

Zinc

BRAIN FOG

If you’re feeling confused, unfocused, forgetful, or like your mind is just running slow, give your brain a boost with a cup of green tea. As around 80 per cent of the brain is made up of water, drinking any fluids will help keep it hydrated and functioning at optimum levels. However, green tea also helps maintain alertness by regulating blood sugar levels and helps protect the brain and cut the risk of dementia.

ANXIETY

Anxiety is gradually becoming a normal mood/feeling among people. It is a persistent fear one has about everyday activities or situations. Though there are a few exercises like meditation and breathing exercises to soothe anxiety, there are certain foods that help too.

If you’ve got a big interview or presentation coming up, try replacing your morning coffee (which can make you jittery) with a calming herbal tea. The calming effects of chamomile are so powerful that they have been found to reduce symptoms of mild to moderate generalised anxiety disorder, so try a cup of chamomile tea to help calm those last-minute nerves.

Herbal tea

Chamomile tea and green tea is considered best for relieving anxiety. Yoghurt, turmeric, dark chocolate, almonds, blueberries, citrus fruits, and oats too help reduce anxiety.

LETHARGY

Lethargy usually takes over when you overeat a meal or overwork and feel tired. There is no doubt that caffeinated beverages help is getting rid of lethargy but too much caffeine is bad for health. Whether you’re suffering from a lack of sleep or are generally feeling lethargic, the best options to fight are nuts like cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts and seeds like sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. Fresh fruits also help keep the mind active.

Beetroot soup

Drinking beetroot juice could help revive your energy levels. Beetroot has a high sugar content and many energising nutrients such as magnesium and vitamin C. Make sure your diet includes sufficient amounts of carbs as they are a great source of energy too.

IRRITATION

Sometimes we just feel irritated because of minor inconveniences. At such times all we need is to pump up our mood and what other best way than to eat the food that we love. Be it some fries or pasta, you must eat whatever you love to make yourself feel a little better. At times, doing this is fine. Don’t be too hard on yourself. 

Check out our Guilt-free Healthy Snacks

FEAR

Many people suffer from phobias, ranging from the common (like acrophobia – fear of heights) to the obscure (like arachibutyrophobia). However, it may be that your diet is to blame. Research suggests that folate deficiency may be behind irrational fears and anxiety, so try upping your intake of folate – as well as mood-boosting Omega-3 – by snacking on avocado.

While oysters are a famous aphrodisiac due to their high quantities of zinc, if you’re not a fan of the slimy mollusc, try opting for shellfish, pine nuts or pumpkin seeds instead.

SHYNESS

We all need a confidence boost from time to time, and luckily you can get a helping hand from your diet to relieve shyness. Researchers found that foods containing tryptophan (an essential amino acid) make people feel more confident. Good sources of tryptophan include meat (particularly chicken), fish such as salmon and tuna, and legumes.

HEARTBREAK

Many people find themselves reaching for chocolate in the face of heartbreak, and this may be no bad thing. Chocolate contains many chemicals to beat the breakup blues, including relaxing magnesium, calming anandamide and mood-boosting phenylethylamine. Try snacking on dark chocolate (in moderation!) for the most health benefits.

Dark Chocolate

Your moods highly depend on the kind of foods you eat and the type of diet you maintain.

The more healthy food you consume, the better your mood stays. Make sure you inculcate healthy foods into your diet which will not only maintain a good mood but also help maintain your overall wellness.

Since there’s no single food or nutrient that can prevent depression, consuming a variety of vegetables, fruit, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and whole grains will ensure adequate intake of vitamins and minerals, which are necessary for good health
