1. Be Cautious Of What You Eat
One should avoid processed food, junk food, and refined or oily food products, Mukherjee says. While succumbing to cravings may seem inevitable at the moment, it is wise to replace guilt food with healthy alternatives.
Detoxification is extremely crucial. Toxins clog our system and further affect the functioning of the body. Detoxification ensures the proper flow of energy and also boosts our immune system, preventing chronic diseases. Anjali Mukherjee suggests detoxifying raw juices namely cabbage juice, beetroot juice, watermelon juice, celery, and tomato juice. She also advises incorporating more fruits and vegetables into one's diet.
Protein fuels your energy and carries oxygen throughout your body in the blood. It also helps make antibodies that fight infections and illnesses, keeping the cells healthy. Owing to the array of health benefits proteins offer, the nutritionist says, “Add at least 50gms of protein to your diet.”
4. Lose Weight
Shedding off those extra kilos can rule out a number of diseases. Being overweight or obese can lead to health problems such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, eye problems, and nerve damage, among others.
5. Dinner Timings
Nutritionist Anjali Mukherjee also advises people to consume their dinner by 7 pm.
6. Avoid Stress
Avoiding stress is the next health tip by Mukherjee. Stress that's unattended can contribute to high blood pressure, heart diseases, obesity, and diabetes, she says.
