Expert tips to prevent indigestion this wedding season

  • Weddings are when most of us eat a lot and end up having a trouble with digestion. So to help you stay healthy and prevent indigestion, here are few tips you can try by Mehar Rajput, Nutritionist at FITPASS and Sonia Narang, Nutritionist and Wellness Expert at Oriflame India.

  • salad

    Most weddings have a salad bar or a fresh fruit counter these days. First fill your plate up with these so that you're almost full before you hit the greasier stuff. You can obviously enjoy the latter as well but you'll feel like eating it in limited quantities when you have had your dose of the fibre rich fruits and salads already!

  • infused-water

    You can also add sliced lemon, cucumber, ginger and chopped mint leaves to your bottle of water and sip it regularly for enhanced cleansing. This will not only help to flush out toxins but will help in digestion as well. Coconut water, jeera water, cinnamon water, fennel water, coriander water are the other varieties you can experiment with to cleanse your body naturally and get healthier looking skin.

  • herbal-teas

    If you're looking for a perfect drink to aid weight loss and improve digestion, then sip herbal teas at least 2-3 times a day. Healthy options such as green tea, chamomile tea and peppermint tea are caffeine free and therefore don't dehydrate your system. They help to boost metabolism, aid weight loss and keep you in shape. While peppermint tea effectively aids digestion, helps relieve stomach gas and bloating, green tea reduces intestinal gas, digestive disorders and regulates the digestive system.

  • curd

    Often referred to as good bacteria, probiotics aid digestion and guard you from feeling bloated after heavy meals that you may end up eating at weddings. After all, who can resist an aromatic plate of butter chicken with a sinful garlic naan? Fermented foods like kefir, yogurt kimchi and kombucha offer a healthy dose of probiotics that help to curb cravings, keep your gut healthy and are good for the skin as well. The good bacteria present in these foods break down lactose and other sugars in the food, making digestion easier.

  • processed-foods

    A great trick to reduce bloating is to control your sodium intake. Stay away from processed foods as they are high on sodium. Having potassium-rich foods such as bananas and nut butter for breakfast can help to counteract the ill-effects of sodium and reduce bloating.
