- Vaishali Makwana — Dietician/Nutritionist and Fitness Trainer
Fad diets can lead to dehydration and make skin dull and inflexible. Increase your intake of water to three litres daily. Protein is essential for cell development so to restore good health of skin, hair and nails consume a protein rich diet. If a healthy skin is your target, consume seeds, nuts, fresh vegetables, fruits, curd and honey. Supplement diet with essential vitamins like vitamin A, which is vital for maintenance of skin tissue and B Complex for a healthy glow and less hair loss.
To regain good skin health, Dr. Manjari Puranik, weight loss expert at Insat Sculpt advises, “Apply antioxidant-rich pomegranate locally to help skin create more collagen which speeds-up healing. Consuming strawberries, citrus fruits, red peppers, and broccoli helps in smooth texture while sunflower seeds and almonds help in protection against sun.” If you want a fresh complexion to beat the after-effects of a fad diet? Go for veggies that are dark orange and red in colour. Also, leafy greens, wild salmon, Atlantic mackerel, walnuts help fight wrinkles. Be wary of those temptation-inducing fad diet programs and resort to normal, healthy work-out routines and a nutritious diet!
