This monsoon rainproof your lifestyle with right diet
First and foremost, avoid oily food, says Ritika Samaddar, chief dietician at Delhi's Max Healthcare.
"Humidity levels are high during the monsoon because of which the capability of the body to digest is at its lowest. Digestion is generally weak. Therefore, avoid heavy and oily food during the monsoon season as it can lead to an upset stomach," Samaddar told IANS.
Experts say besides avoiding oily food, one should also keep away from street food.
Greater intake of green leafy vegetables builds immunity and is light on the stomach. But most vegetables and fruits also carry the risk of infection and, therefore, should be washed properly before use.
Fruits are the ideal food as they restore energy. But avoid watermelons and muskmelons and opt for mangoes, apples, pomegranates and pears, among others, experts say.
But excess of anything is harmful. Gorging too much on mangoes can lead to pimples, says nutritionist Rashmi Channana.
