My breakfast: I used to extensively follow Intermittent Fasting during the lockdown period. I started by following the 12:12 routine and switched to the 16:8 pattern. So, during the mornings, I usually don’t have anything to eat. I just ensure that I stay hydrated and have plenty of water.
My lunch: Serving of plain rice with some vegetarian/ non-vegetarian curry made in very less oil and masala. Salads, curd is also had with my meal and I generally avoid having rotis/chapatis.
My dinner: Normally, I have my last meal of the day by 7:30-8 p.m and it is usually something like a big bowl of salad or seasonal fruits. Mostly, I prefer eating papayas.
Pre-workout meal: Sometimes, 2 slices of brown bread with peanut butter/ half-boiled eggs with a minimum of 500ml-1 litre of water. It all depends on the time I workout and my fasting window.
Post-workout meal: Usually fruits/ fruit juice/ coffee.
I indulge in (What you eat on your cheat days): I don’t like to cheat on my diet but when I do, I treat myself to outside food such as chicken preparation/ ice-cream/ chocolate desserts.
