#HealthBytes: 5 detox tips to follow post Diwali festivities
Among other things, Diwali is a festival of delectable dishes and sweets. And dietary restrictions, for once, can be done away with.
However, now with Diwali gone, your mindless munching must come to a halt, and healthier options need to be chosen.
So, in order to help you make up for those platefuls of Jalebis, here are top 5 detox tips you should follow.
Post-Diwali detox tips
Start out your day with some lemon water
A change as small as drinking lemon water, each morning, on an empty stomach, can give a considerable boost to your health.
All you have to do is fill a glass with warm water and add half-a-lemon's juice to it.
Drinking this syrup will help flush out toxins/impurities and excess sugars from the system, thus helping improve digestion, and promoting weight-loss.
Put unhealthy snacking to rest and replace with healthier options
Finally, say goodbye to those platefuls of pakoras, kachoris and mithai for the sake of your own good health- stick to healthy snacking as part of your detox-plan.
Opt for oats, fruit salads and juices for a much-needed clean-up of your body.
Another healthy option is to grab a handful of nuts while heading out, in order to avoid unhealthy eating.

Limit your intake of processed foods; Practise mindful eating
Processed foods: Instead of gulping on food-items with excess sugars, fats and processed carbohydrates, go for healthier choices, ie. raw, steamed, and sauted veggies, dals and fibre-rich grains like oats and brown rice.
Mindful eating: Never two-time with your food. Eat mindfully and with focus. This will help you grasp your body-reactions and signals, so you know when you're full, thus helping avoid over-eating.
Tip #5: Make time for exercise
You must get back to your exercise routine once the festivities are over, because all that unhealthy eating will ruin your weight-loss plans, if you don't work out regularly. Simple aerobic exercises like running, biking, and swimming (regularly) can help.
