Fasting not only gives you positivity, but is also very good for your health. Most health experts believe that every person must observe a fast for one day in a week. With this the body detoxifies itself. In such a situation, for those who are overweight and want to reduce it soon, Navratri fasting is a golden opportunity, because the body can be saved from extra calories by fasting for nine days.
But many people give up food while fasting, but in its place they eat such things, which increases their weight more instead of reducing it. If you are also keeping Navratri fast with the intention of losing weight, then it is very important for you to know that even you are not making those mistakes, due to which your weight is increasing instead of decreasing.
Mistake of ignoring fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables should be consumed more during the fast as they contain all the nutrients which give energy to the body. Also, they do not increase weight. But instead of these, people take pudding, sago kheer, makhana kheer, barfi, lassi etc. They definitely make the stomach feel full, but by eating more sweets, the body gets more calories and weight increases. If you are weight conscious then you should take sugar at least. Therefore, eat more and more fruits and vegetables during the fast.
Excess consumption of ghee and oil
Nowadays all the recipes of fasting are also available on the net. During the fast, people eat buckwheat dumplings, kuttu puri, sago khichdi, potato tikki, sabudana vada, Rajgir paneer paratha, curd-potato etc. A lot of ghee and oil are put in all these things. In such a situation, we consume more ghee and oil than normal days. Due to this, fat increases in the body and instead of reducing the weight, it increases.
drink less water
If you really want to lose weight, then do not make the mistake of drinking less water. Water detoxifies your body and makes your skin glowing. So keep the body hydrated by drinking water.
eating outside food
Nowadays fasting goods are also sold in packets in the market. Potato chips, makhana, papad etc., all things are sold. These things work to increase your weight. So don’t eat them. Eat homemade things instead of packaged food.
