Most people keep fast on Navratri for religious reasons. During the fast, our body excludes all the dirt inside and we are able to lose some of our weight. But many people eat packaged food, which happens that instead of losing weight
The nine days of Navratri are very encouraging and joyful for the Hindu community. In the whole of North India, where the Navratras are celebrated, Durga Puja is celebrated with great pomp in the northeastern states. People in North India fast in these holy nine days and show their reverence to the goddesses. Most people keep fast on Navratri for religious reasons. Not only this, it is believed that during fasting our body excludes all the dirt inside and we are able to lose some of our weight. But many people do not desist from filling their stomachs in the name of Navratri and eat packaged food sold in the market all day. As a result of this, the weight starts to increase rather than decrease. Often, we make some mistakes during the fast, due to which weight gain starts. If you are wondering what such mistakes are, then we are going to tell you about three such mistakes, which increases your weight during Navratri.
These 3 mistakes increase weight during Navratri :
Not eating nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables
We often forget about fruits and vegetables, which is a very important part of the Navratri diet, while focusing on the Kuttu flour dumplings, Poori and sabudana khichdi. If you are fasting to get the dirt out of your body, then eat more green vegetables and fruits to achieve your goal of weight loss.
Not Drinking Enough Water
Whether you fast or not, it is important that you keep yourself hydrated. During the fast, people often forget to keep themselves hydrated, due to which you remain confused about whether you are thirsty or not. Drinking sufficient amount of water detoxes your body and keeps your skin glowing.
Eating outside food Increases Weight
The first step of fasting is to eat homemade food. But many fast foods available in the market tempt us and often we run into them and consume them fiercely. It is always advisable to eat homemade food during the fast so that your body remains fit for rest. In fact, many types of chemicals are used in outside food, which along with calming your stomach hunger, increases your appetite after a while, due to which you keep eating continuously and you start gaining weight.
