Bal­ance Right

Health & Nutrition - - NUTRITION UPDATE -

Pune-based nu­tri­tion­ist Dr Geeta Dhar­matti, Na­tional Ex­ec­u­tive Mem­ber, In­dian Di­etetic As­so­ci­a­tion, tells you how to bal­ance junk and healthy…

Pro­teins and car­bo­hy­drates with fi­bre should be a part of ev­ery meal. For eg: Rice/ grain of choice + pulse + veg­eta­bles should be in­cluded in ev­ery meal.

One junk should be equated to two por­tions of veg­gies, one fruit and a pro­tein por­tion. Sub­si­tute it in the next meal/ day.

If you eat junk food in the morn­ing, com­pen­sate by eat­ing a healthy and light meal in the af­ter­noon. Sim­i­larly, if you eat junk in the evening, in­clude healthy sal­ads and soups for din­ner.

Im­prove on your wa­ter in­take. And make a rou­tine diet for six days a week with dis­ci­plined in­dul­gence on the week­ends.

In­creased salt in­take through packed/ pro­cessed foods should be avoided. Daily salt in­take can be met with our reg­u­lar home­cooked food.
