Here are 5 diet tips to stay healthy, according to Chawla:

1. Whole foods are a must

Include foods that are rich in essential nutrients in your diet, such as nuts, grains, seeds, vegetables, fruits, etc. If maintaining a balanced diet seem difficult, try including these foods in moderate amounts to your diet. For instance, start with one serving of vegetables each day and gradually increase it. In addition to aiding in weight loss, whole foods lower your risk of developing diabetes, high blood sugar, and heart disease.

Hungry and grabbing that packet of chips or chocolates? Well, be careful while choosing your snacks between your meals. Unhealthy snacking doesn’t just contribute to unwanted weight gain; too much of it can also raise your risk of developing chronic illnesses like diabetes, heart disease, and fatigue. Try including dry fruits, sprouts, and fruits in your snack As they are rich sources of fiber and will keep you feeling full for a long time. Plus, they help you avoid overeating.

3. Limit the intake of white sugar

Have a sweet tooth and find it difficult to give up sweets entirely? It’s perfectly understandable, yet added sugar consumption has been linked to an increased risk of diabetes, fatty liver disease, high blood pressure, inflammation, and weight gain. Consider substituting brown sugar or jaggery for refined white sugar. They are a natural, unrefined sweetener that has less sucrose than sugar and more vitamins and minerals.

4. Breakfast is a must

Make sure to have breakfast every morning without fail. Many individuals skip breakfast in an effort to lose weight, but that is a bad idea. It is regarded as the most significant meal of the day. It gets your metabolism going, aids in calorie burning, etc. Consider consuming eggs, smoothies, oats, fruits, or veggies in your breakfast.
