04 HINDUSTAN TIMES, RAJASTHAN SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2019 htcity LIFESTYLE Sticking to a healthy diet? Have your delicious high-calorie dessert first ‘All of us should listen to our bodies, see what works for us’ cheat, I make sure to have a cup of hot water or green tea half an hour after eating. Anjali Shetty A ctors are often role models for fans when it comes to looking good and keeping fit. Here’s a tête-àtête with actor Sonnalli Seygall of Pyaar Ka Punchnama fame about her routine — fitness, food, and more. Do you prefer mini meals? Yes, I prefer mini to mid-sized meals. I have migraine issues. So, I prefer frequent meals and I think all of us should listen to our bodies and see what works for us. Mostly my meals contain a rice item — either dosa, poha, or paratha made of rice flour. If I’m having light meals, especially before my workouts, then it’s usually sweet potatoes and peanut butter or almond butter. My lunch is mostly the same, lots of rice with ghee, fish and vegetables or salad. D o red velvet cheesecake, french fries or fish fries entice you but you refrain from eating those owing to the high-calories they contain? Take heart. Choosing these high-calorie options first might help you opt for a healthier meal later, says a new research. The study showed choosing indulgent dessert first may lead to eating lower-calorie meals. “We believe diners who chose the indulgent dessert first then picked healthier main and side dishes to make up for their high-calorie dessert. “Diners who picked the healthier dessert may have thought they already had done a good deed for their bodies so they deserved higher-calorie food further down the cafeteria line,” said Martin Reimann, Assistant Professor at the University of Arizona in the US. The experiment was conducted in the cafeteria of the EGADE Business School at the Tecnológico de Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico. For the study, researchers included 134 diners aged between 18 and 60 with an average age of 32. They placed either a healthy or less healthy dessert (fresh fruit versus lemon cheesecake). There were also healthy and less healthy main and side dishes including grilled chicken fajitas and a small salad or fried fish and french fries. The findings, published by the American Psychological Association, showed that diners who chose the cheesecake first, were twice as likely to order the lighter main dish later and ultimately consumed fewer calories than diners who chose the fresh fruit first. Which is the one breakfast food that you must have? Almonds and walnuts soaked in water overnight and a sip of coconut oil. If 90% of the time you are eating healthy, you can cheat 10% of the time. I make sure to have a cup of hot water or green tea half an hour after eating. One fattening food item that you just can’t resist? I eat a lot of good fat such as ghee, coconut oil, and avocados. An unhealthy food item that I cannot resist would be cupcakes and cheesecakes. Do you prefer outdoor or indoor physical activity? I prefer outdoor activities any day but given the circumstances, sadly as there’s so much of pollution, these days the outdoor conditions are not always ideal. Once in a while, I go for a jog in the morning. How do you get back in shape after a fattening indulgence? Consuming a high-calorie dessert at the beginning of your meal can actually make you opt for a healthier course of meal later “People should be aware that their initial food choices and their mindset may affect the overall healthiness of their meals,” suggested Reimann. I just work out a little bit extra and go back to eating healthy. So, if 90% of the time you are eating healthy, you can cheat 10% of the time.
