Mini Mathur reveals how she managed her weight despite not working out for almost 8 days | Fitness News


Fitness is a continuous process and a life-long journey. Despite that, with a few diet tweaks, you can take breaks in between ensuring you are eating a nourishing diet. Something similar was experienced by TV host Mini Mathur as she took an “almost 8-day break” from her workouts.

“Despite not working out for nearly eight days, I returned full strength and no damage on the scale. How?” Mini, who was in Delhi recently, mentioned in an Instagram Stories post.

She shared in another post, “I fasted 16 hours every day and opened my fast with low GI foods and fibre every day so I could follow it up with my favourite food in Delhi – Gol Gappe, Kadhi Chawal, Chhole Bhature, Daulat ki Chat, Butter Chicken, and Hot Chocolate Fudge from Nirulas!”

She added, “Of course, I also didn’t wallop this food in huge quantities, but it worked for me.”

How are low glycemic or low GI foods and fibre good for you?

Festive offer

Nutritionist Jasleen Kaur explained that low GI foods ensure glucose is released slowly in the blood which means they digest slowly, and the energy expenditure is low too. “This keeps you fuller for longer along with sustained energy and reduced insulin sensitivity. This helps in managing your weight,” said Kaur, adding that foods like apples, a mix of walnuts, almonds, and chia seeds have a low GI.

“Cauliflower, spinach, chickpeas, kidney beans, and cherries are some other foods with low GI,” she mentioned.

How does fibre help?

“A fibre-rich diet promotes the elimination of toxins from your gastrointestinal tract. These foods include beans, dals, soybean, green leafy vegetables, broccoli, brussels sprouts, sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, and whole grain foods,” said Dr Prem Narayan Vaish, senior consultant, Dept of Internal Medicine, Max Hospital, Dehradun in an earlier interaction.
