Weight loss puts too much pressure on people to abide by a regular fitness regime and shed those extra kilos. Caught up with their busy schedules, most end up fasting instead of switching to healthier options. They do not realise that not only does it makes them weaker, but many essential ingredients are also cut off from their diet chart. High-quality proteins, carbohydrates, heart-healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and water are some important nutrients that must not be missed out. Moreover, a poor diet is also a direct link to diabetes, heart diseases and certain types of cancer. What's more, saturated fats are known to cause atherosclerosis, which is a major risk factor for heart stroke. 

Sadly, many people still don’t want to make the shift due to the high prices of healthy food items in the market. Shattering the stigma around that thought, Shilpa Shetty doled out a health tip with the hashtag #ShilpaKaMantra on Instagram. The fitness diva posted a picture with a quote that read: “Don’t ask why healthy food is expensive. Ask why junk food is so cheap.” 

The 43-year-old actor and businesswoman captioned the photo: “Your health is an investment, not an expense. Start making healthy choices now so that you don't have to regret at a later stage in your life. Choose mindfully!”

 

 

But, not everyone can afford food at those rates. If you really don’t have money to spare on healthier food items, here are some cheaper nutritious meals that you can start with. Choose lean meats instead of fatty foods and whole-wheat grains instead of refined grains. Buy brown bread instead of white. It will help lower your intake of unhealthy fats and increase the dietary fiber content. 

Dr Ritika Sammadar, Chief Dietician, Max Healthcare, says: “Seasonal fruits and vegetables have the highest nutrient content. Hence, opting for seasonal fruits is a good option.”

“While banana is the most energetic and cheap fruit, roasted chana, soya bean, guava, pumpkin seeds are some of the other foods you can buy,” she adds.

Keep some walnuts in a box near you and eat whenever you feel hungry. It consists of omega-3 fats which can decrease inflammation and heart disease risk. What’s more, nuts and seeds also keep your tummy fuller for a longer time. Beans are also an excellent source of protein and saturated fats. If nothing else, munch on carrots, apples and cucumber slices instead of a bag of chips! Not only will this switch make you feel more energised, and slim you down but also keep sedentary diseases at bay.
