101 Diet Recipes (Healthy Vegetarian Recipes For Permanent Weight Loss)
by Nita Mehta
Diet Recipes are specially created keeping the calories as well as the nutritional aspect of each recipe in mind. For weight loss, a 1200-1400 Calorie Diet is an ideal choice. It is a good idea to divide the intake of food into 5 meals than to have 3 big meals. So, munching on a mid-morning snack like a fruit (apple/pear/guava etc.) makes a lot of sense. It keeps hunger pangs away, thus helping you to have a controlled portion of food at lunch time. In the same way, eating a snack in the evening like a home-made paneer sandwich or a piece of dhokla or sprout chaat or roasted channas, is also very beneficial for weight loss. The main 3 meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner should be well balanced with the right amount of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Out of the total calories, 45% of the calories should be from carbohydrates, 35% from proteins and 20% from fats. The breakfast should be of about 300-350 calories and this can comfortably include 2 light sandwiches or a small serving of upma or seviyaan (any one) with a glass of milk or lassi. The lunch can be of 2 chappatis, a small serving of yogurt and a good amount of vegetable. This would come upto 400 calories. Dinner can be lighter. Have an early dinner and avoid too much carbohydrates at this meal. If you like, eat two rotis for lunch but make it one for dinner. One chappati with a small katori of thin dal, a light salad and a vegetable would make upto 400 calories. Eating these foods will help you keep fit and slim with a glowing skin and healthy hair. I truly believe, “You are what you eat”.
