What I Eat in a Day, 1300-1400 Calorie Diet

Benefits of eating healthy can never be over emphasised. You are what you eat is something I believe in very strongly. Apart from weight loss and improved overall health, eating healthy also allows you to have strong bones, improved memory and a reduced risk of any diseases or ailments. A healthy diet rich in fruits, seasonal vegetables, whole grains and low fat dairy and essential fats can help reduce the risk of heart diseases by maintaining blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

I am quite strict with my meal timings and try to stick to them as much as possible. Time restricted eating is one of the ways to give adequate rest to your digestive system after a heavy day’s work. All my portions sizes are just adequate for me and will vary according to your height and body type. Make sure you include all food types in your meals. Indulge once in a while in your favourite things. However, please keep a strict check on the quantity. Don’t binge on unhealthy snacks, food or alcohol week after week. Stay Healthy Stay Fit!!
