It is always said, " Eat Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dinner like a Pauper." To stay healthy and fit, taking right kind of meal at the right time is very important. One must be very careful about the dinner as it is the last meal of the day.
Here I've compiled a few things that must be kept in mind while taking dinner.
One must be very careful about the night meal as it is the last meal for the day and apart from having it at the correct time, it is equally important to have the right kind of food.
Certain types of food must be avoided as they create digestive disorders. Eatables like junk food, oily food, frozen food, non-veg and other high-fat items should not be taken for dinner as they may create complications.
Wrong eating habits may lead to following problems:
If you're already suffering from a cough and cold, the problem may become more severe.
Salivation in the morning may increase.
Eat healthy food that can be easily digested.
It is better to have buttermilk instead of curd and chapatis instead of rice.
Make sure you eat in limited quantities, do not overstuff yourself.
Cut down the amount of salt as it increases the water retention.
Try to include green leafy vegetables, dal and a small amount of ginger in your dinner.
Spices increase warmth in your body, so try to include spices also.
Replace sugar with honey.
Do not drink cold milk and prefer low-fat milk as it is easy to digest.
Whatever you eat, just make sure that it should not be heavy and you should be able to sleep properly. Also, sleep 3 hours after having the meal.
During night time, very less energy is required as the body is not involved with any physical activity. So, the energy produced from the food gets stored in the body in the form of fat, leading to obesity.
