11 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

Have you ever wondered how your colleague stays so thin despite eating the amount of food he eats? You see him eating samosas for breakfast, half a dozen chapatis plus rice for lunch, jalebis for snack, and another three-course meal for dinner.

Simple eating habits that promote weight loss

Wheat flakes or aloo paratha? Which one is healthier? I bet the majority of you will vote for wheat flakes! Why? Because the TV commercial says so!

Don’t eat gulab jamun – it is deep fried and cooked in sugar syrup !!!

Start eating oats, brown rice because it is high in fibre and helps weight loss.

Haven’t we rather become judgmental about food – labelling food as healthy and unhealthy depending on what we browse through the internet or view on television commercials?

This concept of healthy or unhealthy food has taken away the essence of enjoying our food and satisfying our taste buds.

Our forefathers relished their meals without bothering about the health quotient. They enjoyed their fried food, sweets and savoury snacks without counting the calories or grams of protein and fibre. They never really had food-related health concerns like we do today. Every time I bring this example up someone always raises their finger saying – “But, they had a very active lifestyle and were not dependent on cars, washing machines and maids like we are.” Continue reading
