The festivities of Navratri began from 10th October  onwards. Along with the fun and frolic of garba, it also brings along the nine-day fasting routine. In order to maintain good health, it is imperative that you should follow a healthy diet and fast in a safe manner. Dietitian KAMINI shells out some tips and a diet plan for healthy fasting this Navratri.

Is fasting healthy?

Many may wonder if going on a nine-day fast is indeed healthy for our body. According to Dt. KAMINI it is an extremely healthy practice as long as you don’t starve yourself. Fasting helps you cleanse and detoxify your body and mind. All you need to do is fast in the correct manner by eating small meals frequently and then eating your main meal at night.

Healthy Navratri diet plan

  • Start your day with a cup of green tea and two dates
  • For breakfast, eat fruits, nuts and raisins
  • Have milkshake/ kheer/ coconut water around noon
  • For lunch, opt for sabudana khichdi/ Kuttu roti with lauki/ sabzi and a glass of chhaas with rock salt
  • Mid afternoon, have fruit yoghurt
  • In the evening, eat roasted makhana chat or aloo palak cucumber salad
  • For dinner, start with vegetable soup, a bowl of salad with kuttu ka atta and sabzi followed by low-fat lauki halwa or carrot halwa with less amount sugar .
  • Before sleeping, have a glass of skimmed milk

Recently, there was a controversy that one should avoid eating fruits during fasts. In my belief, fruits are the most sacred food on earth! They are rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre and natural sugar which make them ideal to consume during a fast. 

Ill-effects of not fasting properly

Many people who fast also go to play garba or dandiya in the evenings. Since this requires stamina and energy, it is vital that you fast in a proper manner in order to enjoy the festivities and not strain your body’s health. Some of the ill-effects of not fasting properly are:

  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Fainting due to drop in blood sugar level
  • Unable to sleep properly
  • Lack of stamina
  • Tiredness 

Who should avoid fasting?

I suggest diabetics and pregnant woman should avoid this fast as it can cause a drop in the blood sugar levels which is not conducive in both the cases.

Dietmantra wishes everyone a happy and healthy Navratri!
