[7:30 AM] Morning Dose (First Break)

Every day brings a new morning which can be turned from 'new' to 'good' if started with a smile of optimism. Remember, our existence on this planet is seen with the body we own, so give little positive efforts showing care for its health right from the beginning of your day.

What to Take

  • One glass of water


Say good morning to your body with a glass of water. As we do not drink while sleeping for hours, our body needs rehydration. This one glass is also helpful to flush out the impurities.

We can not run right at the moment we open our eyes after waking up in the morning. We walk with dragging legs, performing slow and sluggish. If we get to do a rigorous activity, it annoys us. In the same way, our digestive system also gets less active and if we eat something at that time it might annoy our system leaving us with digestion problems. So do not eat anything until and unless your body is fully active. Give the gap of half an hour between waking and eating.

[8:00 AM] Breakfast

A pile of research proves that breakfast takers possess a slimmer body, tend to face lesser nutrient deficiencies, are pulled by lesser accident cases, and own brighter memory in comparison to people who skip breakfast. Never forget it is the most important meal of your entire day.

Ideal Time of Taking Breakfast

One must take breakfast between 7 am to 8 am, so that the next dose of the day can be taken at the right time. Delaying this time might cause you to feel a low energy level.

Healthy Breakfast Ideas: Important Morning Dose

This is the time when you need to take a nutrient-dense meal. For example milk and cereal. It is low in fat and sugar; thus low in calories. Simultaneously it is high in fiber, calcium, vitamins, minerals, and potassium; thus high in nutrition.

Here we have added Vitamin B and D, but if you need to supplement your diet with vitamin C too, add one of the following breakfast ideas:

  • Fresh or dried fruit like banana, apple, strawberries, grapes, etc,
  • Cereal with fresh or dried fruits
  • Cereal with plain low-fat yogurt
  • Cereal with half-cup of fresh and pure fruit juice
  • Cereal with half-cup of fresh and pure vegetable juice

Other Breakfast Combinations:

  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread with 1 cup of tea or 1 glass of milk
  • 2 slices of toasted whole wheat bread with 1 cup of tea or 1 glass of milk
  • 1 bowl of oatmeal with 1 cup of skimmed milk
  • 1/2 cup of the oatmeal boil with 1 cup of skimmed milk

Light yet nutrition rich Breakfast Food Items:

  • 3 idlis with sambhar and little chutney made of tomato, cabbage, onion, or mint.
  • 1 boiled egg with 1 cup of tea and bread toast

If you want to perk up the beginning of your day with lifted energy, you can go for sea foods. Some of the examples of morning energy lifters:

  • Muesli with milk that is semi-skimmed
  • Raisin toast with cream cheese that is fat reduced (You can add sliced apple with it)
  • Porridge with sprinkled brown sugar and raisins
  • Low-fat fruit or milkshake
  • Mixed grain loaf with baked beans and avocado

If your breakfast constituents are not incorporating fruits, you can accompany them with squeezed fresh orange juice.

Eat breakfast!

  • Skipping a meal, that too breakfast meal is one of the most unhealthy habits. Break it!
  • If you are going for the last option of energy lifters, do not forget to check the glycaemic index before gulping which tells you the measurement about how soon the food with raise the blood sugar.


  • Avoid coffee at breakfast. If you don't find any other option or get a strong feeling of taking it, sip only 1 cup of coffee, that too — light. If you kick-start your day with a strong coffee, this caffeine stimulant can be adrenaline overload for your body. if you take coffee as continuous practice for a long, this can lead you to low or high mood fluctuations, energy drops, or a feeling of stress.
  • Avoid too much use of chutney in breakfast. Give coconut chutney lesser priority in comparison to other chutneys.

[10:30 AM] Snack

If you wake up late till 9 am, you can take a snack as breakfast at around 9:30 or till 10:30 am. If you have taken a heavy breakfast, you can have a light snack. If you have taken just a glass of milk or fruit juice in breakfast, you can take a little heavy snack, but don't overeat otherwise you can build a tendency to skip your midday meal- lunch.

Snack Ideas

  • 1 Orange
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 cup of sliced carrots
  • 1 cup of sliced cucumber
  • 2 cups of watermelon
  • 1 cup of yogurt with some portion of cut fruits
  • 6 to 8 almonds
  • 6 to 8 walnuts
  • 7 to 9 (in total) almonds and walnuts in combination


Prefer to intake yogurt this time. You can go for its sweetened varieties too as this can help to boost your blood sugar level to keep you steady and sustained till lunchtime.

Taking calcium-rich items separately from the meal is a good practice as otherwise, the mineral can absorb dietary iron or vice-versa. 225 mg of calcium is a good amount to include for keeping your bones strong.


Don't take a heavy sandwich or overdose this time to skip lunch meal. Even if you survive till 2 or 3 pm, you feel hungry and will tend to eat spicy, chilled, or fried food which will give adverse effects and ruin your entire diet chart.

[1:00 PM] Lunch

Breakfasts are said to be the most important meal; does it mean lunch can be avoided, skipped, or dealt with lesser care? No! Lunch is as important as breakfast. It is time to feed your body some protein mainly.

Ideal Time of Lunch

The best time of taking lunch is between 12 to 1:30 pm.

Healthy Lunch Ideas

Add those ideal protein sources to your lunch, which are low in saturated fat.

Preferring a preparation of corn, rye, or whole wheat without oil or ghee is the best diet option for weight watchers who want to control their weight without feeling hungry or empty stomachs. They help in losing weight by making you feel full without adding extra fat to your body. Being a good supplier of fiber-dense carbohydrates, they give energy to a lesser volume of food.

To make your lunch healthier and lighter, you can take salad or fruits or a combination of both, if you have not taken in the early morning. And if your breakfast didn't include milk, you can add one glass of fat-free milk in this portion as well, to fulfill your daily calcium need.

Western meal options:

  • Vegetarians can prefer whole-grain bread, crackers, tortillas, or any other variety of wheat, rye, and corn
  • If you have the mood to take a sandwich, add veggies to your plate by making a vegetable sandwich. You can also fill some salad in your sandwich, to make it healthier.
  • Nonvegetarians can add tuna, ham, lean deli turkey, etc in lunch with almond butter and peanut.
    Other Preparations: Tuna jacket potato, lean ham with salad sandwich, toast topped with poached egg, etc.

Indian meal options for a complete lunch plate that proves healthy yet light:

  • 2 Chapattis (Roti or Phulka) with lesser butter or without ghee and oil, 1 cup of dal, 1/2 cup of vegetable curry, 1 bowl of salad
  • 1 cup of well-cooked rice which cooking process involves the drain of starch (Maand) when rice is half cooked, 1 cup of daal, 1/2 cup of vegetable curry, 1 bowl of salad
  • Non-vegetarians can go for 2 Chapattis (Roti or Phulka) with lesser butter or without ghee and oil, 1 cup of chicken curry made in 2 teaspoons of oil, and one cup of salad


  • Keep your lunch rich with high protein sources to keep afternoon alertness lifted. Such a lunch satisfies your hunger too.
  • Bright-colored salad, especially deep-sharp green-colored salad is a great source of vitamins. Such salad includes cancer-preventive carotenoids too. Add this as a vital element often. One bowl of salad is good enough.


  • Don't add heavy carbohydrate sources to your lunch plate, especially if you take lunch at your workplace. A carbohydrate-rich meal can lead you to a post-lunch dip. As you can't take a snap or siesta at the workplace, such a craving for snooze can lead you to a headache. It can make you slow, lethargic, and mentally sucked.
  • Avoid dessert, chocolates, or ice cream post-lunch. If you can't end your lunch meal without adding richness to it, finish with cheese, fruit, or a handful of nuts.
  • Avoid coffee or soda after lunch. If you want to drink something with your lunch, add milk or fruit juice to your meal.
  • If you are on a diet or want a balanced weight, avoid salad dressings that are the prime source of fat.

[4:00 PM] Refreshment

This is the time to inspire from ants and treat yourself with some sugary food like sorbet. And what if I introduce this part of the diet as a successful mantra to have a balanced body? Know below that how it helps in losing weight or let me use a better term 'controlling weight'.

What to Eat

If you opt for tomato soup, it is one of the best options. You can also go for any other tomato recipe in which it is cooked or processed. It contains lycopene that reduces the probability of prostate cancer in men.


You can't control the craving of the desert for long or always, and you don't need to do so as well. After all sugary treats are also made for eating only, but taking it this time subsequently cuts down your food intake at the dinner table. If you consume glucose this time before dining, you eat less in dinner which aids in losing weight with ease.


Avoid sipping sherry or gulping nibble nuts because these are high alcohol appetizers that increase the calorie consumption of dinner time.

Dinner is the time of reunion of all the family members at one table. It is happy eating time. Make it healthier with happier by introducing to your plate the right food items in the correct amount.
