At 6:30 a.m., I have sabja seeds (basil seeds) soaked overnight with some honey, and later, have a cup of green tea.
I ensured that in the mornings I have something which is low on calories and has a low glycemic index. Hence, I usually have something rich in complex carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins, which also ensure a steady source of energy through the day. So, my most preferred options are:
-Oats/muesli made in low-fat milk (topped off with raisings and dry grapes)
-2 slices of whole wheat bread with any vegetable curry or a spoonful of peanut butter
-3-4 egg white scrambles with a handful of almonds and walnuts
My lunch: My lunch would consist of a green salad (cucumber, carrot and beetroot), any vegetable curry made at home + oats soaked in curd for 3 hours (40-50 grams)/ two phulkas/ brown rice.
I also used to take a cup of green tea 30 minutes before lunch to keep my metabolic state active.
A glass of buttermilk (made in low-fat curd) is also a must to provide probiotic supply to the system.
My dinner: Timely dinner plays a good role in weight management. I used to finish my meal before 7-730 p.m.
I used to have any kind of veg salad with oatmeal/ two medium-sized phulkas with vegetable curry/ 2 egg whites and a whole egg for dinner.
Pre-workout meal: I used to have a slice of whole wheat bread with peanut butter or black coffee if I am performing any moderate or intense workout. Otherwise, none.
Post-workout meal: 3 egg white omelette (or boiled) for protein fulfilment/ small cup of sprouts
I indulge in (What you eat on your cheat days): I never actually indulged in a cheat meal since I was too focussed on my goal and was afraid of overriding them.
Low-calorie recipes I swear by: High fibre fruits like oranges, apples, papaya, guava
