The Fabulous Five [viz Vaani, Sucheta, Alisha, Ramya and Namita] met post-Diwali. They recalled their festive shopping, and the fervour in the air with sweets making, gift exchange and celebrations.
Their friendly banter continued excitedly.
Vaani – phew! Just when we realise Diwali has wrapped up before you know it, we have weddings to attend and then Christmas and the New Year are around the corner!! So many festivities and sugar rush are all we get
Sucheta – I love sweets! This is the only time of the year when I give into my sweet tooth craving.
Ramya - While we all love to indulge in sweets and rich food, we also need to be careful about what it does to our digestive system. I am doing a post-Diwali detox.
Namita – Detox? Wow!! What exactly are you doing? Please don’t tell me you are following a only coconut water diet for three or four days!
Ramya – [smiling] No. Not at all. My neighbour is a Doctor and she told me about this. It’s nothing to be afraid of and it’s not at all difficult. It’s just 5 simple steps to follow.
Alisha – Elaborate, please!
Ramya – Well, here goes.
The first step:
Here’s what you need to do :
Don’t skip meals: this is the most important thing. Skipping meals will make the blood sugar dip and this can increase sweet craving. So having timely meal portions is essential. But cut down on junk food, fast food, oily food, cold drinks, alcohol, cigarettes and red meat
Alisha – sure. I can do all this.
Ramya – see, it isn’t difficult. Mindful eating is the key here
Sucheta – Ok. My first step towards detox – I am going to order a herbal tea. Any takers?
All [in unison] – yes!!!! Please order for us too. Our first step towards detox. Cheers!!
