Aishwarya Rai Weight Loss Diet

Aishwarya has already stunned everyone with her sensuous, bold, seductress avatar in Karan Johar’s directorial venture ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.’ And now at Cannes Film Festival 2017, she has proved once again that she is the queen of Bollywood. From flying kisses to elegant poses, she looked every inch a royal princess. She got a very good response after this amazing body transformation. All thanks to Aishwarya Rai weight loss!

There was a time when Aishwarya Rai’s tremendous post pregnancy weight grabbed many eyeballs. She was criticized for her weight gain post baby but she chose to ignore the haters and prioritized her family and child over her looks.

Aishwarya Rai’s message on Motherhood

The Bachchan bahu spoke vastly about motherhood. She said, “I didn’t over think the fact that I had put on weight. I didn’t do anything as expected of someone who came with all the adages as me. There’s a lot of glamour and a lot of visual that is attached to me. But I stayed committed to my reality. If my body did go through this change, so be it. I didn’t play into the stereotype of what is possible. It’s an individual choice if people decide to go under the knife. I had access to that but I chose not to. I was genuinely comfortable in my skin and I got recognition along the way. Women who met me publicly, thanked me for the fact that I was giving them strength to be comfortable with the natural change. Hormonally anything can happen to a woman, your body can go through change and it’s important to remain comfortable and not let it affect you psychologically. My comfort and my conviction to just say true, in turn, gave strength to so many women. Suddenly, it’s okay to put on weight. It’s okay that your body changes physically from health reasons or otherwise and it’s okay to choose to dress the way you want to. I am happy with my weight and I love my daughter.”

Aishwarya Rai’s weight loss DIET

BREAKFAST

Aishwarya Rai’s weight loss secret is that she never skips her breakfast. She starts her day with warm water, with lemon and honey in it. It is a great way to revive your metabolism.

In breakfast, she takes brown bread toast or a steaming bowl of freshly cooked oats. Oatmeal is considered a healthy whole grain and contains high levels of protein and fiber.

LUNCH

Her lunch normally consists of boiled vegetables which are easy to digest, full of nutrients, contains little or no fat and flavorful. Sometimes she also takes a bowl of dal as well as one chapati. Aishwarya says -“I can survive on dal, chawal and vegetables”.

DINNER

She prefers to eat very light for the dinner and eats a cup of brown rice and grilled fish. Brown rice has high fiber content and is more healthier than white rice. Thus helps in burning more fat and decreases the chances of overeating by satisfying the appetite. Grilled fish provides the required protein and omega 3 fatty acids.

Apart from this, Aishwarya keeps her portion in control and prefers smaller meals throughout the day. She strictly avoids any fatty, junk or fried foods. Instead prefers fruits, vegetables, and fresh juices. She keeps herself hydrated by having 8 glasses of water per day. She tries to maintain a fat-free diet which not only accentuates her figure but also brings a glow to her skin.

Aishwarya Rai weight loss WORKOUT ROUTINE

Aishwarya is not a regular gym going person and doesn’t follow any workout routine. In one of her interviews, she admitted that she was never serious about the workout and never worked hard to achieve a toned and lean figure. Actually, she never wanted a lean figure and feels happy in her curvaceous body. It seems her figure is all because of her good genes.

But if at any time she feels this need for the perfect body she attends gym twice a week. Aishwarya prefers yoga over workouts. She believes in the method of eating right and practicing yoga. According to her, yoga is the best way to keep the body powerful and so as flexible.

How to Do a Juice Cleanse

PRE-CLEANSE

POST-CLEANSE

DURING

Doing a juice cleanse has been said to help unleash the natural healing power of your body by ridding built up toxins. Juicing floods your system with powerful nutrients and antioxidants. It may be the first step toward a long-lasting lifestyle change, or jumpstarting a weight-loss regimen by helping to retrain your taste buds as well as psychological connection to food. Urban Remedy’s colorful juice cleansesare packed with so much delicious goodness, you’ll never believe something so healthy can be so satisfying.

Diet, Time, Activities, Exercise & Attitude

3 DAYS PRE-CLEANSE


Diet

Upholding a healthy, light diet 3 days before your juice cleanse will ease the hunger cravings during the juice cleansing. Only eat organic fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and eggs and drink 8 glasses of water a day. Our egg taco recipe is a great pre-juice cleanse meal. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, sugar, processed foods, dairy, red meat and gluten.

Time

For an optimal juice cleansing experience, make sure you have the free time to reflect and rest. Do not do juice cleanses during an emotionally intense time or during a major life transition. Set yourself up for success: ask your friends and family to support you or even to do a juice cleanse with you! Offer them this list of reasons to juice for more information.

Attitude

Set an intention for your juice cleanse. An intention is a commitment to changing a part of your life that no longer serves you. What do you want to create through your juice cleanse? What do you need to heal (such as relationships, illnesses, thought patterns)? How will you know if your juice cleanse was a success? Write down your answers to these questions to reveal the intention for your juice cleanse.

DURING CLEANSE


Diet

We recommend a 100% juice cleanse because eating slows down the juice cleansing process. If you need to eat during your juice cleanse, choose organic fruits, vegetables or soaked nuts and seeds. Try the Urban Remedy meal replacement smoothiesand Nosh snacks, which are raw, gluten-free and very nutritious.

Exercise

Limit yourself to light exercise, such as walks, yoga, and stretching. Your energy levels will change when you’re on a juice cleanse, so pay attention to what your body needs before exercising.

Activities

We suggest doing introspective activities while juice cleansing such as writing in a journal, meditation, walks in nature and listening to gentle music. Avoid places with loud noise and a lot of activity; you might be more sensitive during your juice cleanse than usual. Make sure you have a lot of free time to take care of yourself.

3 DAYS POST-CLEANSE


Diet

Return gradually to eating solid foods after your juice cleanse. During the three days after completing your juice cleanse, follow a diet similar to the pre-cleanse diet. You can eat organic fruits and green vegetables the first day after your juice cleanse. On the second day, add brown rice, eggs and yogurt. Add chicken, fish or meat to the diet 5 to 6 days after the fast. Use your juice cleanse experience to create new, healthy eating habits!

Try our almond oat meal for a grain-free breakfast recipe.

Activities

Don’t jump into anything strenuous or exhausting right after your juice cleanse. Continue to take time to relax and integrate your juice cleanse experience back into your life.

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Can You Lose Weight Taking Apple Cider Vinegar Pills?

by JILL CORLEONE, RDN, LD

Can You Lose Weight Taking Apple Cider Vinegar Pills?

In the natural health world, apple cider vinegar is considered a cure-all, improving digestion, boosting immunity and promoting weight loss. While vinegar has been shown to help control appetite, it’s not a miracle cure for obesity. Plus, it’s not known whether taking it in pill form has the same effects. If you’re struggling to lose weight and seeking alternative aids such as apple cider vinegar, consult your doctor first to discuss options.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Weight Loss

There is very little evidence to support the claims that apple cider vinegar helps with weight loss. When taken as part of a drink mixed with wheatgrass, alfalfa and fulvic acid, along with an oral supplement consisting of various herbs such as cat’s claw and pau d’arco, apple cider vinegar helped a group of men and women lose a little more than 8 pounds in 21 days, according to 2013 study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine. The participants, however, also followed a reduced-calorie diet, ranging from 1,200 to 1,800 calories daily. While the participants in the study lost a significant amount of weight in a short period of time, it’s difficult to determine if it was the apple cider vinegar, one of the other supplements or the low-calorie diet that helped with the weight loss. And there aren’t any weight-loss studies using apple cider vinegar alone.

Vinegar and Hunger Control

While it’s not quite certain if apple cider vinegar can help with weight loss, it may help you feel full faster. Highly acidic vinegar taken with bread helped decrease hunger in a small group of volunteers in a 2005 study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Part of the hunger control may be related to its ability to keep blood sugar levels steady. The researchers of this study found that the higher the acidity of the vinegar, the more it lowered blood sugar. Another study published in 2005 in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association reported that vinegar improved post-meal blood sugar and also noted that the participants ate fewer calories. Neither of these studies report what type of vinegar was used, however. The pH of vinegar ranges from 2.4 to 3.4. Apple cider vinegar has a pH of 3.1, which means it’s not the most acidic.

If supplementing your diet with apple cider vinegar helps you eat fewer calories, it may help you lose weight. One pound of fat contains 3,500 calories, and if you’re eating 250 fewer calories a day by taking apple cider vinegar, you’ll lose 1/2 pound per week.

Apple Cider Vinegar Pills

People who take apple cider vinegar typically take it as a liquid. But several supplement makers offer the vinegar in pill form for people who have a difficult time with the acidity and taste of the vinegar as a liquid. These pills contain a powdered apple cider vinegar, and the directions suggest one to three capsules or tablets, taken one to three times a day. Depending on the maker, one pill has 120 to 500 milligrams of apple cider vinegar, with 500 milligrams equal to about 2 teaspoons of liquid, according to one of the makers. As a liquid, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar is generally equal to one serving.

Safety Concerns With the Pill

Apple cider vinegar in pill form may not contain what it says on the bottle, according to a 2005 report published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. Due to an adverse event caused by an apple cider vinegar capsule that led to an esophageal injury, tests were conducted to assess acidity, microbial content and pH of a number of different brands of apple cider vinegar in pill form. The tests showed a wide range of variability in all three categories, leading to questions about whether some of the supplements even contained apple cider vinegar, and ultimately to challenge both the quality and claims of apple cider vinegar supplements. Before adding apple cider vinegar pills to your daily regimen, be sure to first consult your doctor for advice.
