Nutritionist Shiny Surendran breaks down diet plan and healthy eating

While the internet is saturated with complex diet regimes, Shiny Surendran narrows down simple diets you can adapt confidently. Small changes in your lifestyle that’ll show great results.

Sleeping in time:

Getting enough sleep in improper timings does not count. For example sleeping at 12pm and waking up 8am is not a healthy sleep. You have to go to sleep at 10pm! Try waking up at 5am in the morning. Your body will get a proper rest and also this will help secrete growth and sex hormones. Sleeping on time also helps put a pause to sugar and starch cravings. So you are not found guilty of eating midnight sweets.

Three meals a day are super important.

Do not ever skip breakfast; at least have an egg or some fruits. Tea, coffee does not compensate breakfast. For lunch try having more veggies than rice. When it comes to non-veg eat the pieces than the gravy and fried items are a complete NO, NO. If you are a vegetarian have a lot of sprouts and pulses. If you don’t have time to cook gravy, have salads. Raw vegetables are super nutritious.

Substitute evening snacks with fruits:

You can have about 3-5 fruits a day. Substitute your evening baji, samosa with a bowl of fruits. Do not have juice. Even if it does not contain sugar, juice is still not as healthy an option as fresh cut fruits.


Buttermilk instead of curd

Not more than 2-3 cups of tea/coffee (400ml)

Stay away from: Maydha, white rice, sugar, fried items

Caution: Please consult a doctor to make sure you don’t have any food allergies, or lactose intolerance, hormonal imbalance before adapting these tips.
