Do not follow a diet that you cannot follow for a long time, eat and stick to a balanced diet according to your routine. This was the conclusion of a seminar that the nutritionist Dr. Preeti Shukla announced on Sunday in a seminar with fitness freaks and yoga practitioners in a yoga studio in New Palasia.

A businesswoman who attended the session spoke about the people who had difficulty gaining / losing weight despite having a strict exercise routine.

Shukla said, “When we do an exercise, 70% of people do not lose weight even after doing it, and even those who want to gain weight do not gain weight.”

She explained, “In such a situation, a successful diet should be taken according to our body and routine, as every body is different.”

“Good nutrition means a balanced diet that should have the right amount of calories, protein, fat, etc.,” added Deepak Sharma, who practices balanced diet and intermittent fasting.

“You shouldn’t expect results if you follow a fashion diet,” explained Shukla.

Additionally, she added that many people start exercising on an empty stomach, which is never suggested. “You should start exercising after you’ve eaten a few nuts or dried fruit,” said Shukla.

Yoga trainer Pankaj Soni added, “After exercising, we need to eat high-protein foods such as sprouts, sour pancakes made from lentils, etc.”
