Why the Indian Vegetarian Diet Appeared
First of all, it came about because of the healthy lifestyle of the Indians. In addition, the basic products of the diet – rice, curry, black tea and milk – are the usual daily diet for seventy percent of the Indian population.
It should be noted that the Indians do not miss any of these products. Despite significant poverty, tea, rice and milk are naturally produced foods, so hunger is not terrible even for the lower classes of society.
Due to this primitive diet, most of the Indian population keeps their slim and proportionate figure, without calling it “diet” or starving for 4 weeks.
By the way, India has a very low rate of cancer, obesity and other diseases resulting from excessive amounts of cholesterol, trans fats and other poisons in our body.
The principles of the Indian diet
Indian teachings have long gained recognition from celebrities as they provide practical advice on healthy lifestyles from the traditions of yoga and the ancient Indian medical system – Ayurveda .
The Indian diet has its roots in this teaching. The mission of Ayurveda is to regulate human nutrition so as to achieve harmony between physiological and spiritual needs.
One of the principles of the Indian diet is to eat when you feel hungry and not wait for breakfast or lunch. This means that each person should listen to their own body in order to capture their individual biological rhythms.
Such a nutrition system is much more productive than “violence” on the body and appetite, both for women and men.
The diet also suggests eating mostly simple but freshly prepared foods. In traditional food there are no semi-finished products, reheated food and other tricks that are common for us.
For the proper assimilation of food by the body, an appropriate attitude is needed both during cooking and during eating.
Ayurveda advises treating cooking and eating as a kind of ritual action, during which it is advisable to focus on the process itself, banishing all foreign thoughts from you. With this approach, the food is better chewed and digested.
Products allowed in the Indian diet
During this diet, it is necessary to give up meat, fish, all cereals except rice. Of course, sweets, buns – all this is forbidden. Only the following products should be present in the diet:
- what do you have.
That is, the diet involves the use of plant foods and the rejection of animal products. Alcohol is completely excluded!
Permitted product properties
Without much comment, it is known that rice normalizes the digestive system, is responsible for the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats, as well as for the normal activity of the thyroid gland, rejuvenates the body. This cereal absorbs and removes everything that is bad and harmful from the body.
In addition, rice contains many minerals and vitamins, including vitamin B, vitamin E, PP, carotene, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, calcium, iron, iodine and selenium.
Cinnamon reduces appetite and removes toxins from the body. This spice also regulates fat metabolism. Therefore, it is also very useful for weight loss.
As for the other spices – curry, it consists of 70% turmeric, which stops the growth of adipose tissue. In addition, curry improves metabolism and also suppresses appetite.
Fruits, vegetables and nuts saturate the body with a large amount of nutrients. Moreover, each fruit and vegetable has its own unique composition, which positively affects the body. Walnuts also satisfy hunger and provide the body with energy for mental and physical work.
Black tea contains a high proportion of tannins, bioflavonoids and flavanoids, which removes heavy metals, salts, excess fluid from the body and significantly reduces fat deposits. In addition, tea reduces appetite and invigorates. Undoubtedly, it is preferable to use Indian tea in your diet.
However, any tea produced in another country is also acceptable: Sri Lanka, China, etc.
And milk is a unique product that increases the effectiveness of the diet process and the rate of fat breakdown several times. Other dairy products do not have similar properties.
