It's the wedding season and all of us would love to look our best But it so happens that after attending a few functions, we end up indulging in "'mindless eating'," adding up a good 3-5 kgs in a couple of months.

Not with Balance Nutrition !! 

We are here with a brand new e-guide. We call it - "THE NO PILING WEDDING GUIDE"

THIS GUIDE HAS:

  • Tips for healthy eating.
  • A detailed before-after & during the wedding food guide. Not to forget the cocktails!

TIPS FOR HEALTHY EATING DURING A WEDDING:

  • Stay away from anything that includes the words: stuffed, double, triple, crispy, etc.
  • Some salad dressings can make a salad unhealthy. Get it on the side and choose non-cream-based, lite, or fat-free salad dressing or, just go with olive oil and vinegar.
  • Sometimes, a soup and a salad may be enough to fill you.
  • Choose stewed, sautéd or grilled food instead of fried & baked.
  • Do not have fruit juices as they are high in carbohydrates and less in fibre, instead, have whole fruits.

 

BEFORE GOING TO THE WEDDING FUNCTION:
Eat one of these items before leaving for the function, this will ensure you don't go overboard with the feast there.

  • 1 roti & 1 Katori daal
