To begin with, if you’re living in India and have decided to go on a diet, take a moment and applaud yourself. The variety of gastronomic indulgences that the Indian subcontinent offers makes it both extremely difficult and also in a way, easy to adopt a diet. Confused? Don’t be. In the ocean of health advice that lashes at you everyday, we’ve sifted out the nonsense and chosen four diets that are extremely easy to adopt in an Indian lifestyle.
- DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension): DASH diet is designed to keep your blood pressure levels in check. Most urban Indians are battling lifestyle diseases like hypertension, diabetes and stress. The DASH diet introduces foods high in fibre and minerals like potassium, calcium and magnesium. Most importantly, the diet restricts the intake of sodium which is one of the biggest factors leading to blood pressure. While it might not achieve exemplary weight loss, it will definitely help you become healthier and fitter. What’s more, your Now Cold Pressed Juice Subscription will help you achieve your DASH diet goals in a much easier way.
- TLC (Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes): The TLC diet is made for those who suffer from high cholesterol. Studies suggest that more than half of the urban population in India suffers from high cholesterol. High cholesterol is one of the main factors causing heart diseases in India. The TLC Diet is nothing but a healthy eating plan targeted towards consuming foods that help in lowering cholesterol. Sustained practice of the plan not just helps you lose bad habits but cleanse your system too!
- Flexitarian: Most Indian religions uphold vegetarianism as a virtue. So does this diet! The flexitarian diet is a ‘mostly’ vegetarian way to lose weight and become healthy. The best part about it is that it is not rigid and gives you leeway to enjoy meat too. The diet focuses on eating mainly whole foods like fruits, vegetables, grains and dairy. The amount to meat consumed varies according to a person’s eating habits. It’s a great diet because it can work for the entire family and it focusses on eating quality instead of quantity.
- MIND Diet (The Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay): Aimed towards increasing your mental health, this diet is one of those rare plans that targets a much neglected factor in overall wellbeing ; the mind. Through introducing mind-healthy foods and eating rituals, the diet helps in managing stress along with neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s too. It includes leafy greens, vegetables, nuts, berries, beans, whole grains, fish, poultry, olive oil, and wine. Meanwhile, it limits intake of red meat, butter and margarine, cheese, pastries and sweets, and fried or fast food.
