TV ac­tress Helly Shah shares her sleep mantras

— Drink more room tem­per­a­ture wa­ter and get your full quota of sleep each night. You’ll get rid of built-up tox­ins, drop weight and have clear skin. Along with this, you’ll get rid of dark cir­cles and puffi­ness.

— Eat more fresh fruit through the morn­ing.

— Con­sume more veg­eta­bles, spe­cially the darker,

more colour­ful ones.

— Avoid fried and bat­tered foods.

— Avoid the whites – white flour, white bread, white rice, pota­toes, pasta and sugar. Use bet­ter sub­sti­tutes such as nachni, ba­jra, jowar or quinoa for bak­ing your bread, mak­ing cha­p­at­tis and rice. Sweet pota­toes can sub­sti­tute pota­toes and co­conut sugar, mal­i­tol or jag­gery can sub­sti­tute white sugar.

— Avoid wheat flour due to the bloat­ing and gluten in­tol­er­ance that it of­ten gives rise to.

— Foods with a shelf life will tend to be un­healthy and will lead to weight gain. This is be­cause their shelf life is ex­tended via the use of oil, preser­va­tives, chem­i­cals or salt. These in­clude chewda, chak­lis, pa­pad, pick­les, bis­cuits, khakras, bhel etc.

— Freshly made snacks such as wraps, sal­ads, sand­wiches or just a whole fruit are far bet­ter.

— Eat less at each meal but eat more fre­quently, graz­ing through­out the day rather than go­ing with 3 square meals. The square meals will make you round!

— Get an hour of ex­er­cise each day, per­haps first thing in the morn­ing or last thing in the evening, so it doesn’t get in the way of your busy wed­ding plan­ning sched­ule. Your work­out should have a large car­dio­vas­cu­lar com­po­nent of about 45-50 min­utes, and 10-15 min­utes of a mus­cle ton­ing seg­ment.

Most im­por­tantly, don’t for­get to truly en­joy the time up un­til the fairy tale end­ing!

Drink more room tem­per­a­ture wa­ter and get your full quota of sleep each night. You’ll get rid of built-up tox­ins, drop weight and have clear skin. Along with this, you’ll get rid of dark cir­cles and puffi­ness.
