The best part about following a fitness plan is not just losing weight but also becoming a fitter and healthier person!
Morning: By now you must be used to beginning your days early. Start your day 21 by drinking water stored in a copper vessel. In olden days, we mostly used vessels made from metals like copper, as it was believed that copper leaches into the water and lends it all its positive properties. It is believed that copper helps you digest food better, heals wounds faster and has many other health benefits. Make sure, you store water in a copper container for at least eight hours before you drink it. Fill a copper jug with water before going to bed tonight and drink that water the first thing in the morning.
We are what we eat, and the food is an integral part of healthy living. Make sure you focus on eating the right quantity of food by controlling your portion size.
Breakfast: South Indian food is one of the healthiest options for breakfast. Begin your day with masala idlis instead of the regular idli. This idli is made with dalia and vegetables like capsicum, spring onion and carrots. You can also add other vegetables you like. Here’s the how to make vegetable masala idli.
Lunch: We all know green leafy vegetables are healthy, but not all of us like eating it. And that is when recipes like these come in handy. For lunch, you can eat soy and methi theplas. The soy takes care of the body’s protein requirements and methi is rich in vitamin C. These soya and methi theplas with a bowl of curd is a perfect light lunch. Here’s how to make them.
Dinner: Eating healthy does not mean you give up eating your favorite food. If you love eating Chinese food, you will definitely love eating this steamed veg manchurian. Team it up with some steamed rice and you are all set for dinner.
Snacks: You can’t always drink soup or snack on some plain kurmura. They say biscuits are not healthy, but you can always replace the maida in it. Many other flours are healthier than maida, and one such flour is amaranth or rajgira flour. Here’s how you can bake these amaranth flour biscuits. These are made with jaggery, so you don’t even need to worry about the sugar in biscuits. Bake a batch and eat one or two whenever you feel hungry.
Exercise: Exercising should be a habit and not a once-in-a-blue-moon thing. By now, you must be used exercising every day and must have even stepped up the intensity of your workouts. Here’s how you should plan your Day 21 workout.
At home: If you are planning to tone your arms and wondering about the weight and type of dumbbells to buy, forget it. You really don’t need any weight to tones your arms. Here’s a hassle free way to tone your arms.
Yoga: Breathing is the essence of living and in the hustle bustle, we forget to take a deep breath and calm ourselves down. Anulom vilom is a breathing technique that helps you calm down and relax. It also has other benefits like controlling your blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Here’s how you can practise it.
Sleep: It is believed that using gadgets continuously, especially while lying in bed, can affect the quality and quantity of sleep. Apart from not taking your gadgets to bed, you can also chew on flaxseeds to sleep easy. Flaxseeds contain both serotonin and omega-3-fatty acids that help you relax and make you fall asleep easily. Here are some other foods you can eat for a good night’s sleep.
