We had Navaratri and Bakrid a few weeks ago and here comes Diwali.
In a month’s time, we have Christmas and New Year with Pongal close at its heels and so on, the year long. There are so many festivities and tempting foods to savour as part of the celebrations! It is so easy to get caught in a roller coaster ride of overeating and subsequent dieting (out of guilt) ending up with the yoyo effect.
It is like falling down and then picking yourself up. Every time you fall, you get up. The same way, going back to eating healthy after a bout of festive eating is mandatory for the weight loser.
But, the best way to achieve this is by what I would call taking a pre-emptive or defensive approach. That is to start taking a conscious note of your eating much before a scheduled festival or celebration and immediately after it too.
